Another time another story

Another Time Another Story Dear Ginny and Harry Potter, I am sorry to leave little Talia on your doorstep but I sadly cannot care for her myself.  she is 11 months old, her birthday is August 2nd, 2007. I know you will give her a wonderful home. Sincerely D the Trader. Harry potter fan fiction Thank you W E A S L E Y for the awesome new cover!


3. Our 11th Birthday.


"Lily, wake up," Talia said, shaking Lily like she was trying to kill her. "Go away Talia; it's, like, 6am." Lily said sleepily. "Haha Lily, it's 9am get up, mom made pancakes!" Talia said excitedly.

"Oh, in that case I'll be down in five!" Lily said, jumping out of bed.

"If Lily doesn't come soon all the pancakes are going to be gone." James said, with his mouth full of food.

"Don't talk with your mouth full, James, it's rude." Ginny scolded.

Lily skipped down the stairs two at a time, feeling light-hearted. I can't believe Talia and I will be going to Hogwarts soon. I wonder what it will be like. I hope people won't make fun of Talia, everyone always says she doesn't look like a Potter or a Weasly with her blond hair and blue eyes, it really gets on her nerves. Lily thought.

Everyone was sitting eating breakfast when two brown owls swooped in, one looked quite old. He landed in the stack of pancakes! He had a letter tied to his leg and the other owl had the prophet. The letter had: green writing and a red stamp with the Hogwarts crest on it, the snake for Slithindor, the badger for Hufflepuff, the eagle for Ravinclaw and the lion for Gryffindor. 

"Why is there only one letter," Lily worried.

"Let's open it together," Talia said. They each grabbed a corner of the envelope. "Ready?" Said Lily. "One, two, three." They said as they tore the envelope open.

"Careful you don't rip the letter!" Ginny exclaimed.
