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!


8. The Quidditch Match

As November fell like a cold splash of ice on the warm summer days, the weather got worse. The mountains became an icy grey and the lake, chilled steel. Peering out from the Gryffindor common room windows, Alisha saw Hagrid defrosting the broomsticks, dressed in a long, mole-skin overcoat, rabbit-fur gloves and enormous beaver-skin boots. Suddenly Alisha felt a sharp pang in her chest. Everything began to hurt. A tear leaked down her cheek as she fell to the ground with a loud thud. All the Gryffindors heard it and turned round to see what it was. Everyone gasped as they saw Alisha lying motionless on the ground. The room was silent. Then someone yelled, 

"GET  MADAME POMFREY!" Fred picked Alisha up, muttering

"She's as light as a feather, maybe she wasn't eating enough." To his brother George, who gulped and ran a hand through his hair. Then practically all the Gryffindors lead a sort of procession to the hospital ward. The other houses looked on, puzzled, while the Slytherins laughed.

"Someone died, I do hope it was Potter!" Sneered Draco Malfoy. At that point, Hermione had had enough

"Well actually, Mr I'm the best in the world Malfoy, somebody might have died, for all we know at the moment, and no it's not Harry. It's Alisha." Draco's face fell. Alisha couldn't die, she was too young, too funny, too cute. Granger must have been having him on. But as he looked at the unconscious lump in Fred's arms, he saw that indeed it was Alisha. When they arrived at the hospital ward, Madame Pomfrey immediately called for Dumbledore. He looked at Alisha's face, tears were still trickling over her freckles and her mouth was open in some sort of silent scream. He turned to the crowd of students that had all squeezed in.

"I know this may be hard, but please try and forget about this unfortunate incident and go and enjoy the Quidditch match. Good luck all players. Now please go and get ready. I believe Gryffindor and Slytherin may want to get some team talks in." The students filed out, finding it very hard to be happy, when Alisha was in there, possibly dead. All the same, they went to the Quidditch match and tried their hardest to thoroughly enjoy themselves. It was a dirty match. Snape cursed Harry's broom, but Hermione stopped him and Harry nearly swallowed the snitch. Gryffindor won. Alisha got better almost as soon after the match, and went to join Harry, the other mean boy and her best friend Hermione in Hagrid's hut. Ron and Hermione were insisting Snape had tried to kill Harry, but Hagrid said,

"Snape? He wouldn't do that, he's a teacher." And Alisha nodded with a certainty about her.

"You're only saying that because your his favourite." Hissed Ron, only Alisha heard him. 

"Why would Snape do a thing like that anyway?" Hagrid asked sitting down at the table with the children. The trio looked from one to another. Alisha grinned happily. Just as they were about to decide on lying, Alisha spoke out,

"Because they heard Snape telling Filch that it was hard to keep an eye on all three heads, and we went to duel Malfoy at midnight and accidentally went in them same room as this big dog with three heads and Snape was limping so..." Hermione cut in,

"So, we think that Snape is trying to steal whatever the dog is guarding. How do you know that we heard Snape?" Alisha tapped her button nose mischievously. 

"How do you know about Fluffy?" Hagrid asked, voice quavering. The teapot in his hand dropped to the floor and smashed. 


"Yeah, Fluffy, he's mine, I bought him off  a Greek chappie in a pub, I lent it to Dumbledore to guard the-" He saw Alisha shaking her head and stopped.

"Go on..." said Ron cheekily. 

"No, I aint telling you anymore! What that dog is guarding is strictly between Dumbledore and Nicholas Flamel-"

"So a Nicholas Flamel is involved then?" Asked Ron even cheekier. Hagrid looked like he could have ripped himself in two. Alisha sighed.
