Kate Smithson isn't a normal eleven year-old. She's a Metamorphagus, has photographic memory, and is in a wheelchair due to an accident that claimed her ability to walk and her family's lives. How will she cope with loss, bullying, friendship, fights, and being a foster child at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?


3. The Weasleys

Ted Tonks threw two handfuls of Floo Powder into the roaring fireplace. It took more for the wheelchair. Ted said to Kate, "Ready?" She nodded, but her hair was still white. He grabbed the handles and said, "The Burrow!" and pushed her into the fire. 


Molly Weasley bustled all of her kids into their living room. Fred and George groaned, saying in unison, "Why did we have to get up so early?"

    Molly flicked her wand and the place cleaned up. "We are going to be a foster family for a year." The twins and their younger brother, Ron, groaned, but she went on. "Her name is Kate, and she was disabled in a car crash." 

Fred sniggered and said, "Mentally or physically."

         Molly smacked his head and said, "Physically. The poor dear mangled her legs so bad that even the best Healers at St. Mungo's couldn't fix it. She's in a wheelchair, but she's a prodigy. She can do simple spells to help her without a wand. Now, she's coming at seven sharp." The fireplace glowed green and Molly whispered, "Here she comes."

    Kate rolled out of the fireplace and looked around. Her hair turned white and she squeaked, "Um, hi."

             George looked at their mother with shock and practically yelled, "You didn't tell us that she was a Metamorphagus!"

  Molly looked shocked too and stammered, "I-I d-didn't know!" 

      Ginny was the only one brave enough to introduce herself. She said, "Hi Kate. I'm Ginny. Sorry about my family. I don't think you'd want to be goggled at, do you."

         Kate smiled and her hair turned back to it's normal brown and said, "Thank-you for your hospitality Ginny. I'm Kate."

           There was a very awkward silence. Then Molly screeched, "Well don't just stand there, boys! Introduce yourselves!" 

   The oldest one said, "I'm Bill, and I'm going into my seventh year. I'm gonna be Head Boy."

 The next one went up to her, shook her hand, and spoke, "My name is Charlie Weasley. I'm going to be a Gryffindor prefect."

The one that looked like the oldest of the youngest said, "I'm Percy, and I'm going into my second year at Hogwarts."

           The first twin said, "I'm Fred," and the other continued, " and I'm George," and in unison they said, "and we're identical!"

       Molly interrupted, "Kate, you'll be in the twins' grade. They're both going into 1st year."

               Kate stared down at her feet as her hair turned a vibrant pink (embarrassed) and she blushed really bad. Fred and George looked at each other and grinned. Molly smiled and said, "Yes. Apparently, Professor Dumbledore has requested that he talk to you and take you to Diagon Alley! Now, that's Ron," she pointed to a younger boy, "and Ginny already introduced herself. Now, is there anything I can do for you?"
                           Kate looked back up and her hair turned blue (humble and hesitant) and she stammered, "Well, tomorrow's my birthday, so it'd be nice to go to Diagon Alley tomorrow, actually."

     Molly palmed her head and screeched, "I forgot, dang it! It's your birthday tomorrow! I'll send Errol to Dumbledore right now!"

      Kate held up her hand and calmly said, "Molly, calm down. I can do it." She held her hands like she was holding a small invisible ball and said, "Nuntius statim traductor!" A glowing silver orb replaced the empty space where her hands were. 

Everybody looked astonished. Percy exclaimed, "You made a spell! How....who....what?!"

               Kate's hair turned a darker blue and she calmly said, "Molly. Please hold this orb to your lips and say the letter into the orb, then pass it back to me." She handed the orb to the shocked Mrs. Weasley. 

    Molly held it and said, "Albus. Kate arrived approximately one hour ago. As my understanding, she will receive her Hogwarts letter tomorrow, and as you requested, she would like you to take her to Diagon Ally tomorrow. Please contact me with the time you'll pick her up, and what transport. Yours truly, Molly Weasley."

         She passed it back to Kate and Kate said, "Professor Dumbledore. This is a new spell I have created. To send an answer back, pretend that you're holding an invisible ball between your hands, say 'Nuntius statim traductor', lift the orb to your mouth and say the letter, say who you send the orb to, and throw the orb to the sky. Thank you!" Kate then said, "Send to Professor Dumbledore," and threw it to the ceiling. 

    Awkward silence. George cheerfully said, "Can we have breakfast now, please?"
