2. Holly who?

The Great Hall erupted in a buzz of whispers, exclamations, and confusion. 

"Twin? Did he say twin?"

"But she's a Peters and he's a Potter. How can they be related?"

"I've never heard of a second Potter child, she must be lying"

"Why hasn't anyone heard of her before? Was she sent from He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?"

Professor Dumbledore raised a hand, "Silence! I'm sure you all have many questions but the answers will come with time. Now Harry, please come forth."

The entire Great Hall turned to the Gryffindor table where Harry Potter was sitting after arriving late. There were a few specs of blood left on his robes after his altercation with Draco Malfoy on the train and on his now astonished face. He slowly rose and with some encouragement from Hermionie Granger and Ginny Weasley, started walking towards Dumbledore and his supposedly twin sister. As he drew closer, with a nod of encouragement from the headmaster, Holly jumped slightly down the stairs and closed the distance between herself and Harry. The twins stopped with a few feet between each other and Holly extended her hand.

"Nice to meet you," She said with a smile

Harry's dumbfounded look was replaced with an unsmiling, straight face as he extended his hand as well. As their hands were brought together in a handshake there was a sudden BOOM and CRACK like the sound of a firework. The two twins were like rockets as they flew apart from each other by an invisible force. Harry was thrown into the Ravenclaw table and was caught by some of the students. His face was bloodied once more by his nose but it was just a mild nosebleed, as if he had taken one of George and Fred Weasley's Nosebleed Nougats.

Holly received the majority of the blow. Her body was flown through the air and hit the far wall, behind the Slytherin table. She was flung so hard that she bounded off the wall and landed on the Slytherin table spread eagle on her back, scattering the then empty goblets and plates onto the floor. She groaned in pain as she slowly raised herself on one arm and found herself surrounded by the sixth year Slytherins. Suddenly there was a loud crack and the table beneath her broke and she fell to the floor among the shattered pieces of oak. Holly's eyes closed tightly for a time soon opened and saw that she was looking up at those same Slytherins with looks of disgust and apprehension on their faces.  

"Shit," she groaned as she took in her surroundings. She slowly rose for the second time, slightly off balance and on the brink of falling until a strong arm steadied her. She looked beside her and saw a tall blonde boy with a Prefect's badge on his uniform. She nodded at him in thanks and he slowly withdrew his arm. Holly found her bearings and stepped out of the splinters of the once great Slytherin table. 

"Sorry about that," she said to the Slytherins that stared at her with a look of apprehension, "I'll fix your table. That doesn't really help a girl's self esteem now does it?" Her bleak attempt at humor didn't change the Slytherin's expressions on their faces. "Tough crowd" Holly thought as she drew her wand and waved it around the broken table. The pieces began to mesh themselves back together like a puzzle on fast forward. Soon the table looked exactly as it once had. 

"I think they're too distracted by your face," the blonde boy spoke, "The table cut up your face pretty badly."

"Oh, well thanks for telling me...uhm sorry I didn't catch your name?"

"It's Draco, Draco Malfoy." The boy replied. 

"Draco? Interesting name." Holly said with a bemused expression on her face. Suddenly her face paled, "There isn't much blood is there? I don't do very well with blood."

A boy to Holly's left answered for Malfoy, "Yeah it's all over your face and dripping on your shirt. And the name is Blaise Zabini, you'll want to remember MY name."

"Cocky much?" Holly thought to herself. To Zabini she coldly said, "I'll keep that in mind, thank you." Holly touched her face and felt blood. She thought of how much blood was on her face and felt faint. She looked to see if any of the teachers had come to help her but saw that Dumbledore, McGonagall and Flitwick were all hovering around Harry. "I was the one who was blasted against a stone wall but a nosebleed gets more attention? Spoiled brat." she thought to herself. Holly walked through the tables to the front of the hall. As more and more students saw her face, the gasps of horror rose. It was only then did the professors remember Holly. 

Professor McGonagall rushed over, "Hospital Wing Potter, I mean Peters, off you two go."

Harry and Holly started to walk towards the Hospital Wing with McGonagall leading them when Harry's hand briefly brushed Holly's arm.


Holly was pushed backwards into the air, did a flip and landed on her stomach on the floor of the Great Hall, about ten feet from where she once stood. 

"Stop touching me!" She yelled at Harry. Anger burst forth as she saw that once again, she was hit with most of the force; Harry had been propelled only half a foot forward and was still upright. "What the hell is happening?!" Holly shot at the professors. 

Harry opened his mouth to retort back but was cut off by Professor Dumbledore, "We will discuss this later, for now don't come within 5 feet of each other. Go to the Hospital Wing now." With that Professor McGonagall whisked the twins away, leaving the rest of the students in the Great Hall to discuss what they had just witnessed.
