9. Mum's Dream

Christmas finally arrived and joy was spread through out Hogwarts. I was now allowed to join fourth year classes as Professor McGonagall had said a few months earlier. On Christmas morning I was surprised about getting presents from Harry, Ron and Hermione. I got Harry and Ron a box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans each and Hermione a box of sugar quills.


Hermione got me my own copy of Unfogging the Future by Cassandra Vanlatsky, Harry had got me a box of pixie puffs and Ron got me a box of Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum. Plus I was sent a red knitted jumper with a yellow ‘H’ on it from Ron’s mum, Mrs Weasley.


Later in the day while me and Ron were trying to see who could blow the biggest bubble with my box of Drooble’s, an owl came an perched on the windowsill. “The letter is for Hayden.” Neville said as Ron’s bubble popped. I cheered as I got up to get the letter. The letter read:


Dear Hayden,

How are you? Have you made any friends? Everything’s going fine here. Me and your father had your Nana, Aunt Taylor and your cousins, Ryan and Lauren, round for Christmas dinner.


But anyway what I’m about to tell you is for your eyes only.


I quickly went upstairs to the girls’ dorm, which was empty because everyone was downstairs. So I continued reading:


I’ve been having the same dream every night since you turned eleven. I wake up from being unconscious in what looks like a hospital and nurses in strange uniforms surround me. This about the time when I was pregnant with you. So one of the nurses say “Lisa, I’m Madame Davenport.” I look around, my vision slightly blurry. I ask the nurse where I am. “St. Mungo’s Hospital for…” I didn't hear the rest.


Then I asked why I was in hospital. The nurse said, “This lady here, Ms Saunders, saw you collapse in the street and took you straight here.” I then found out I had a terrible disease, which I don’t know the name of and it they didn’t cure it both me and the baby would die. So they gave me a sweet tasting liquid then that’s when I wake up.

Don’t mention this to you’re father. He’ll think I’ve gone nuts.

Merry Christmas






Once I’d finished reading the letter, I quickly grabbed a quill and parchment and jotted down some important notes. This may come in handy later.
