Emily Potter, Year 1

I’m Emily Lily Potter. If you haven’t already guessed by the last name, I’m Harry Potter's sister. We’re both the same age, we’re twins. I look like our mother and he looks like our father, Weird huh? I don’t live with the all terrible Dursley’s and I sure as heck don’t live under the stairs! I have been living with my godfather (Remus Lupin) since I was about 5. My mother (Lily Potter) dropped me off at the home of some Muggles less than a day before she died. But the first 5 years of my life were worse than Harry’s, since I was painfully skinny and usually ended cut by broken glass (I had magical issues with the windows). But Lupin managed to locate me when I was 5 and it was a heck of a lot better after that. Anyway, I’m going to go to Hogwarts soon and that should be real fun, maybe I’ll even make some friends!

15. Potions, Pansy and the Hogwarts Express!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                                           Emily's P.O.V.

 

 

“We seem to get Potions a lot these days.” Cat said walking into the Dungeons a little behind me. I learned that she never led the way to anywhere…. Merely followed or walked alongside friends. She was both a sheep (mildly) and a tad bit slow. I nodded my head happily. Potions was my favorite and best subject, Defense Against the Dark Arts being my second…. Even though Professor Quirrel taught so pathetically. “Are you going home for Christmas?” Cat asked me and I nodded “Are you?” Catherin nodded “I hope this Christmas is better than last year.” She murmured and I gave her a confused look “My dad sort of ruined it. Yelled and scared me into my room.” She said and I frowned

“I’m so sorry to hear that.” I answered She shrugged “He rarely screws Christmas up though. Usually just birthdays and random days.” She said as if it was normal for her… Though I could smell her fear. And feel and see how awkward and nervous she was.

That explained a lot. I had my sweater tied around my waist and as we entered the dungeons I quickly put it on. The Dungeons were freezing this time of year. It affected everyone but Professor Snape. Even the Slytherin were freezing cold. I of course would suffer through it. I loved Potions…. It was so much fun!

The class went by as usual. It was still fun for me and as always I succeeded in making the Potions. Pansy envy’s this, she couldn’t even make a potion if her life depended on it. She gets a pass because she’s in Slytherin.

Of course I had nothing against Slytherins. I had things against jerks and bullies and most of them seemed to be in Slytherin. I mean Alex was kind…. Ish…. I grabbed my Potions stuff and chucked them into my bag. I only had about 30 minutes until the next class so I’d better hit the books.

Me, Cat and Hermione were going home a little after lunch. I missed Lupin… So I was excited to see him again and talk his ear off. We had our classes and then lunch. Without even turning around I knew who was behind me. (I knew by the speed of breathing, the amount of footsteps, the number of heartbeats and I’m starting to bore myself so I won’t continue on.)

“Hello Pansy.” I said shoveling some food into my mouth and not turning around. “Staying at Hogwarts? What your parents don’t love you or something?” Pansy asked and I felt my body go rigid “Oh right they’re dead. And they didn’t love you.” She hissed and I got up leaving the Great Hall, I would have told her that I wasn’t staying at Hogwarts but what she said hurt me too much.

I truly believed that they didn’t love me. I never told anyone this of course… Not Lupin or anyone. But that’s what I had agreed upon… The one answer that made sense, I mean if my parents loved me why did my mom leave me at the Doorstep of some cruel random muggle’s if she loved me and leave Harry with the both of them at home huh? I felt tears rush down my face and burst into a run. Thank Merlin everyone was eating… Thank Merlin.

I wiped my eyes as fast as I could and rushed into the first place that came to mind… The Girls Bathroom. At least here no one would see me. The place was repaired from the Troll but temporarily avoided.

I hid my head in my legs and curled up in the corner underneath the farthest sink. I tried to make myself as small as possible. Oh Merlin that hurt! I cried silently at first in case someone came in. No one did so I let a sob escape my mouth. I’ll bet you a Galleon that I looked like a fool.

He Twins came in about 30 minutes after I hid in the bathroom. Fred stuffed what looked like a piece of very old parchment in his pocket while George got me to stop crying. Fred didn’t really know what to do with himself and sort of rocked back and forth on his heels ad pulled out the bit of parchment again and muttered something under his breath that I couldn’t catch.

I finally calmed down and George stretched a hand over my shoulder and I leaned my head against his shoulder. I hadn’t cried like that since I was with the Thorns… I shuddered at the thought and hiccupped once or twice. “Oh and we’d thought we’d tell you that pansy got three days detention.” George said and I smiled

“From Professor Snape.” George continued and I continued to smile “Parkinson had no reason to say that…. Or what she said about your Mum.” Fred said in more of a whisper and I felt my anger flare up. “What did she say about my-“ I said and George cut me off “I don’t think either of us should repeat the things she said.” His voice even quieter I heard something break and Fred ducked as the bathroom mirror exploded.

He climbed under the sink with us and sat cross legged in front of us. I smiled and felt myself shrink and start to cry again. Fred just twiddled his thumbs and just gave a wink at George who rolled his eyes. He still had his arm draped over my shoulders and I sobbed for a good 2 minutes more.

I hiccupped again and they led me out of the bathroom. I felt a smile move across my face as they dropped me off in the Dorm and told me to get my stuff before the Train came and left.

I was standing out for the train beside Cat and Hermione. I started chatting with them and both the Weasley twins came over… They smiled at me and Fred scuffed me over the head. I smiled at this, as we hopped onto The Hogwarts Express.

“So Cat… Did you hear any of the things Pansy-“ I hadn’t even finished my sentence and Cat had already said “Yes I did and I’m guessing you’ll want to know what she called after you since you went a little deaf. She called you mother a worthless mudblood and useless and she said you should hang yourself.” She stopped it had been less than 20 seconds and she had said all that with one breath of air.

I frowned at this and drug my trunk into a compartment. I smiled at the thought of seeing my god father again. And Panther jumped onto my shoulder out of nowhere. He was purring loudly and being extra affectionate since he knew I had been crying.

He looked at Hermione and jumped onto her lap and fell asleep. I laughed at this “I think he likes you.” I muttered and Hermione got over the shock of that and started stroking his back. “So Hermione what do your parents do in the muggle world?” I asked and she looked up “Oh they’re dentists. They deal with teeth.” She said and I nodded my head in understanding

 “What about you Cat?” Hermione asked and she seemed to be embarrassed to speak. “My dad works a collage and my Mum is well a mum she doesn’t do anything but mum stuff.” She said and I shrugged not really understanding what “mum stuff” meant.

They both looked at me in expectation “Well my god father is unemployed at the moment. He has trouble finding well paid work because of his uh condition…” I said and trailed off looking at the floor.

“So when do you think we’ll hit King’s Cross?” Cat asked and I smiled “I’d say about 45 minutes.” Hermione said “45 minutes and 27 seconds to be precise.” I said and Hermione shrugged her shoulders not judging me in any way. As it turns out Cat wasn’t as quiet as I thought a first and actually couldn’t seem to shut up.

She also loved reading but found studying boring, which both me and Hermione disagreed with. Then she brought of the sport basketball… In which I didn’t understand. Hermione knew what it was and found it intriguing to watch sometimes but didn’t find it ALL that interesting.

I still didn’t know what it was and Cat began explaining everything about it. I old her she’d have to show me how to play sometime and she smiled. We just talked in a non moron girl way. And by that I mean we weren’t talking about fashion or boys…. I felt the train stop and smiled I hope Lupin was as happy to see me as I was to see him.
