Dumbledore's Apprentice The First Year (COMPLETE)

Alisha Moonglow is a 12 year old girl, tortured by some cruel force of nature, but when Albus Dumbledore rescues her from the lips of a Dementor she learns she has gifts, gifts that will open doors she never knew were closed, gifts that will earn her a place in Hogwart School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This will be updated every Monday.

This is finito but I will be posting sneak peeks, diary entries, quizzes and fun stuff like that!


13. The Mirror of Erised

Christmas was on the approach. Hogwarts and its grounds had been coated in a white, thick dusting and the lake had turned to ice. Post became delayed, and Hagrid's hut became a temporary owl hospital. Everyone was extremely excited about the holidays. Draco Malfoy had found out that Harry was staying at school and hissed in his ear during a Potions lesson,

"I do feel sorry for those who are not wanted at home for Christmas."

"That's not very nice, I'm not going home for Christmas, I don't even think I have a home." Exclaimed Alisha loudly, glaring at Draco.

"NO TALKING IN MY CLASSES! Ten points from Gryffindor." Snapped Snape.

"But Draco was being mean to Harry!" Alisha explained, the whole room gasped, no one spoke back to Snape.

"Very well then, 15 points to Gryffindor, take the 5 as an apology, and 10 points from Slytherin."


Soon the holidays had started. Ron and Harry were too busy enjoying themselves to think about Nicholas Flamel, to Alisha's relief. They would sit by the fire, toasting marshmallows and playing wizards chess, which Ron always won. Alisha didn't seem to be around much, and if she was her and Amaris would be discussing something that Harry and Ron weren't allowed to know about. On Christmas Eve, Harry found her surrounded by presents, some wrapped, some not.

"How many presents did you get Alisha?" Ron asked.

"Not a lot, just one for everyone in the school. I'm posting ones to the people on holiday." On Christmas Eve, Amaris and Alisha were told to sleep in the boys dormitory. Harry and Alisha fell asleep not expecting much,whilst Ron and Amaris climbed into bed thinking of all the lovely presents they'd get. The next morning everyone jumped onto Harry's bed and watched him open his presents. He unwrapped Hagrid's flute first, then tried on his 'Weasley jumper' and passed round the fudge. He was very excited at the chocolate frogs Hermione had given him, but the last present was a mystery. Alisha smiled knowingly as Harry shook the package. Ron and Amaris gasped as the contents dropped onto the bed.

"What, what is it?" Asked Harry.

"It's a, it's a-" Ron couldn't  get the words out of his mouth.

"It's an Invisibility Cloak." Whispered Amaris. "Try it on." Harry did, and sure enough became invisible. After a lot of present unwrapping later, Alisha could barely fit all hers in her chest of drawers, they went down for Christmas Dinner. The food was amazing and everyone sat on one table and all the teachers dressed up, obviously excluding Snape. When the day was over, Harry decided to try out his Invisibility Cloak. He slipped into the Restricted Section to try and find out about Nicholas Flamel. Unfortunately all he found was a shrieking book and a load of teachers on patrol. Harry ran and found himself in a room with a large mirror in the middle. A din the mirror he saw his parents, he rushed to get Ron and unknowingly aroused Alisha, who followed them. 

"I can't see your parents, I can only see me, and I'm Head Boy and-" But Ron was silenced by loud footsteps behind them.

"Harry, Ron, what are you-" Alisha pause mid-sentence and began to walk slowly towards the mirror. She stretched out a hand and touched the glass, tears selling up in her eyes. Then Alisha  fled, sobbing from the room.

"What was all that about?" Ron muttered. Harry shrugged and they went back to bed.
