"Eve, we got the letters!" I ran downstairs and grabbed the letter out of my brother's, Mark, hand.
Dad came in from the back door of the kitchen and took off his hat.
"Dad, the letter came!" Mark was jumping up and down.
"Okay then open your letters!"
I quickly opened my letter and started reading it.

"Dad when are we going to Diagon Alley?" Mark asked.
"Tomorrow with Aunt Abby."
"Wait is Aunt Abby the one who married Uncle Albert?" I asked.
"Yes, do you two have a problem with that?" Dad asked us.
We both shook our heads.
"Okay then I'll send her a letter to meet in front of Ollivanders."
Dad started writing the letter and I walked to my room.
I'm Eve Welker. I'm going to be in my first year at Hogwarts with Mark. Tomorrow we are going to Diagon Alley and meet up with Aunt Abby and our cousins, Harold and Alexandra.
Uncle Harold was the only one in the family who was a bender while the others were witches, like Mom, or wizards, but Dad was a squib from his side of the family.
In the morning, after getting our robes and books, we went to Ollivanders.
"Hi Aunt Abby." I said.
"Hi Eve, Mark. Oh Jim, Harry said he'll meet us over at my house."
"Okay. Why don't you guys go and get your wands?"
"Okay, Dad." Mark and I went inside.
After a few tries I got an Oak Dragon heartstring 10 and 3/4 inches while Mark got an Maple Phoenix feather 7 1/2 inches.
"Where do we go next?" I asked Mark.
"We can get pets."
"Okay, lets tell Dad."
After we told Dad Alex and Harold came with us.
"Harold are you going to try out for being a seeker?" Mark asked him.
"Yeah I am. So what are you getting?"
"I'm going to get a cat." I said. "What did you get Alex?" I asked her.
"I got an owl, but I can help you find a cat."
We went to Aunt Abby's house and saw the Weasleys and the Potters there already just like Aunt Abby said.
"Hi Mrs. Weasley." I greeted her.
"Hello Eve. How are you on your studies?" she asked me.
"Good. I finished the book, Hogwarts a History you told me to read, but you, Mr. Potter, and Mr. Weasley already found out all of the secrets though."
Mrs. Weasley smiled and said. "There are more secrets that are meant to be found everywhere."
Hello! I'm re-starting 'The Welker Twins' as you read the first chapter. I changed the story line for this and I have more ideas for the next few chapters so you'll just have to wait! For those who have read 'The Mysterious Witch', my other Harry Potter fan-fiction, you could say that this is a sequel I guess? I don't know what to call it. XD
For those who are confused Eve's and Mark's Mom was Albert's, Harold's and Alexandra's Dad, younger sister who married Jim Welker, their father, and that's how Eve, Mark, Harold, and Alexandra are cousins.
I also changed some parts of the epilogue on 'The Mysterious Witch' so it can work with the story, so Abby is not teaching other benders, but she is teaching Potions.
This is such a long Authors Note so I'll be going now!
Have a nice day! :D
