3. The Headmaster's Study

As Holly and Harry walked through the Hospital Wing doors, still more than 5 feet apart, a matronly looking woman rushed towards them. 

"Injured already? The school year's just begun!" Before they had time to answer, Madame Pomfrey whisked them away for examinations. Harry's nosebleed was fixed easily by a simple wave of a wand. Holly's cuts from the table splinters required ointment but that too was fixed momentarily.

"I'm sorry my dear but because you'll feel sore tomorrow, I can't do anything to fix it now. If it gets too much to handle come see me tomorrow." Madame Pomfrey said with a slight grimace.

"All right off you two go, headmaster's study now." Professor McGonagall said as she shooed the now uninjured twins out of the Hospital Wing. 

The two siblings walked down the long corridors towards Professor Dumbledore's office. Both remained silent but as she walked, Holly took in her surroundings. The long and wide corridors were decorated with moving portraits of past wizards and witches of the ages. Statues of armor stood at certain points in the hallways which was lit by candlelight. Holly had heard stories of the Hogwarts ghosts and looked around hoping to catch a glimpse of one. However, they didn't meet a single soul, living or dead during their walk and they soon reached the two stone gargoyle's that guarded the headmaster's study. As Harry muttered the password 'Lemon Drops', the wall moved to reveal a stone staircase. In a short time the twins stood at the doors to the headmaster's study. The door swung open just as Holly was about to knock.

"Please come in." 

The twins entered the study and looked expectantly at Professor Dumbledore. They both opened their mouths to say something but before they could utter a word the headmaster spoke. 

"Please, have a seat. I will try to answer all of your questions but you mustn't interrupt until I have explained myself." He smiled at both of them as they sat down and edged their chairs as far away from each other as possible. He leaned back in his chair and gestured for them to ask their first questions. 

"How-"

"What-"

The twins looked at each other and after a brief staring match, Holly backed down.

"How are we related? How have I never knew I had another family member, let alone a twin sister before? I thought the only family I had left was the Dursley's" Harry accused Dumbledore with a sharp tongue.

Professor Dumbledore smiled slightly, "I should have known that was going to be your first question Mr. Potter. The tale begins long before your birth, here at Hogwarts. Your mother and father were friends with another couple, a couple named Katrina Lightwood and Jonathan Peters. They began dating during their sixth year at Hogwarts and were close with your parents. They stayed in touch as both couples graduated from Hogwarts and married. Katrina and Jonathan desperately wanted to start a family early on but could not conceive. Katrina started to fall into a state of depression. She didn't eat, or move from the house. All she did was sleep for days and days on end, she was wasting away to nothing. This was when Jonathan turned to his old friends for some guidance. After exhausting all options Jonathan was forced to resort to moving from the world that Katrina knew to somewhere she didn't; a clean slate. It was as they were preparing to leave for North America, Lily and James found they were pregnant, expecting twins. Lily and James made a sacrifice and decided to give one of their babies to Katrina and Jonathan, to save Katrina's life from her vegetative state. Both couples told no one that Lily was expecting twins, and when they were born, one was whisked away and given to the Peters. I had put two and two together but kept it to myself in case my guess was wrong. It wasn't long before the news of Voldemort's target was placed on the Potter family reached both families ears. The Potters urged the Peter's to finish their move to North America, thus saving themselves and ensuring the Dark Lord never knew of the twin's existence. Both couples raised their babies in different continent's but both loving them fully. The Peter's loved Holly as if she were their own.

On October 31st, the night Lord Voldemort entered Godric's Hollow and murdered James and Lily Potter and tried to kill Harry, another tragedy occurred that night. Driving along a slippery road in British Columbia Canada, a driver pushed the Peter's car off the road and into a gully. Katrina and Jonathan were killed instantly but Holly who was in the backseat in a baby's car seat was uninjured. She was placed in foster homes as she had no other family that could care for her. She was moved from countless foster homes as she didn't know how to control her magical outbursts and her foster families didn't want 'problem children'. When she turned eleven she ran away from her current foster home. Holly will probably tell you this more in detail later but she was soon met by Arthur Abbott, a distance relation to your classmate Hannah. When I heard what had happened to the Potters I send Arthur to check on the Peters family. He raised Holly and taught her in the magical arts. They moved often to avoid detection of some of the Dark Lord's followers who were in North America. Last year Arthur Abbott passed away and Holly has been living by herself, travelling across the continent. I managed to reach her this summer and told her about her biological parents. I thought the time came for both of you to finally meet. You could learn a few things from each other." 

Harry sat back in his chair, taking in all of this information. Holly on the other hand had heard this story before and was anxious to ask her question.

"Dumbledore, I mean Professor Dumbledore..sir, uhm my question was surrounding this thing that happens when Harry and I touch. I've never heard or seen of this before, with twins or anyone for that matter." 

Professor Dumbledore looked at Holly over his half-moon spectacles, "Now there is a question I'm still unsure of the answer. It appears to me that whenever you two touch, it creates an electrical pulse. Why you get the majority of the impact and Harry does not, I'm not sure. I have a few theories but I need to research more before I can reveal them."

dissatisfied look appeared on Holly's face with the headmaster's answer. Before she had time to speak again Professor Dumbledore rose and spoke, "Well I'm sure you're very tired from your journeys to Hogwarts. After you both left for the Hospital Wing I addressed the school of the new arrangements. Because you are entering Hogwarts so late in your schooling, Holly, you won't be sorted into a house. However, one student in the Gryffindor house has decided not to return this year and to instead be home-schooled. You will stay with the other sixth year girls, one of which is Harry's good friend Hermione Granger. I have asked for her to show you around the school tomorrow and to be a person to turn to if you have any questions. In the matter of classes, you have been taught beyond your years in Transfiguration, and Charms. However, you have had no schooling in Potions, or Herbology. Therefore, you will be placed in the sixth year level in all of your classes. I will speak to your teachers and they will adjust their teaching to accommodate you. This way your learning will balance and you will be able to spend more time with Harry and others your own age."

To this Harry made a small grunt of protest. Professor Dumbledore suddenly became selective in hearing and ignored Harry. "I hope your stay here is enjoyable and you will find help wherever you turn. I will be in touch."

Taking this as a dismissal, both Harry and Holly rose and started their long walk in silence to the Gryffindor dormitory.
