Hollis didn’t go to classes at all that week, she didn’t remember everything about Saturday but she remembered yelling and that the teachers were laughing at her and him and she remembered the kiss and the feeling it gave her. She had ignored Ginny and yelled at her any time she tried to talk to her, she had never felt so alone, she felt as if the kiss had changed her somehow. McGonagall and Dumbledore had come to try and get her out of her bed but Hollis had just yelled at them, she felt as if she had been woken up from a dream and couldn’t get back to it. She lay in her bed for a whole week, on Saturday she got out of bed and went to breakfast with everyone. She sat with her family, she had never noticed how different she looked from them until now, she didn’t have flaming red hair or freckles, and didn’t have that real Weasley look. “Hey Holl, where ya been?” George said, Hollis just looked at him taking him in “George, was I a cute baby?” she asked. All the Weasleys looked confused “um sure” he said “no I mean when I was born, was I cute?” she said her brothers looked at each other “I don’t remember” he said. Hollis dropped her fork onto the floor and started hyperventilating “n-n-n-n-no” she said “n-n-n-n-n-n-no”. She slid off the bench and onto the floor “NO” she screamed, everyone was looking at her “NO, NO, NO” she was screaming and clenching and squeezing her body as if to check if she was really there, then everything went black.
Hollis woke up in the hospital wing with her family all around her, when she saw them she started breathing oddly again “out all of you” Madame Pomfrey, the medi-witch said. Hollis clenched her arms together “no, mum, stay, dad, stay” she said, crying through each word, Arthur and Molly looked at each other nervously “what’s wrong sweety?” Molly asked Hollis. Hollis’ eyes were open widely, she looked scared “your-your-your not m-m-my mum” she said, Molly and Arthurs jaws dropped “we were going to tell you when you were of age” Arthur said. Hollis squirmed up into a ball “GET OUT” she yelled she was breathing quickly and sweating “GET OUT” she shrieked, Molly and Arthur left, both crying, when the door closed behind them Hollis returned to her normal state. Then in walked Dumbledore, Snape, and Minerva “hi” Hollis said, she wasn’t scared around them “Hollis dear, are you okay” Minerva asked “um no” Hollis said honestly “I just kind of found out I am not who I am and that my life is a lie”. The professors looked at each other “Hollis, they are your family, they took you in and loved you” Dumbledore said, Hollis looked mad “no they aren’t, they are just liars!” she shouted “who are my family, who are they?” she demanded. Dumbledore handed Hollis the note that had been tied to her wrist the night Molly had found her, she read it over and over again.
She finally looked up from the note and her eyes went straight to Snape “who is N, you know who N is, I know you do” Dumbledore and Minerva looked at Snape. Hollis got up off her bed and walked over to him, she looked angry, sad, and curious “who is it, I know you know” she said “Severus?” Dumbledore said. Snape looked at them “I may have some idea of who N is” he said, Hollis started banging on his chest “you bastard tell me” she said, Dumbledore smiled cheekily when she said that. Severus pulled her away from him and looked at Dumbledore and Minerva, they both left “and where the hell are they going?” Hollis demanded by Snape just ignored it. Now it was just him and her “Miss. Weasley” he began “I am not a Weasley” she corrected “yes, Miss. Malfoy” he said, Hollis’ mouth dropped open “Miss what?” she said. Snape had not imagined having to be the one to tell her this “yes, you are a Malfoy” Hollis looked up at the ceiling “you fucking liar” she said “language Miss. Malfoy” he said she glared at him “I cant be a Malfoy, it wouldn’t even make sense, I don’t even look like one” Snape rolled his eyes “I am only going to say this once so listen” he began.
