Chapter 1:

"William", a small ten year old girl whispered. She had blonde hair running down her back with an old, tattered nightgown on.

"Yes Susannah." Replied her twin, an equally small ten year old boy with blonde hair and silvery-gray eyes.

"I had a nightmare again." Anna whispered, a small tear running down her gray eyes.

"Come here." Will said quietly, a hardness coming to his eyes. He opened the thin blanket and Anna silently came over to the bed and lay down next to her brother.

"What was it about?" he asked.

"About the time when Michael…" she broke off, trying to hold back the tears that started to come out of the slivery-blue eyes.

"Shh…Shhh… Thats it… let it all out…" Will said soothingly. Rubbing his sister's back as she cried into his thin shirt.

After a while, the tears started to subside and she moved her head from her brother's shoulder and looked at him from her red-rimmed eyes.

"Thank you."

"No problem."

Then she moved her head back into his shoulder and each were quiet for a while.

"Will." Anna inquired.

"Yes." He then moved her head from his shoulder to look at her better.

"I hate them." she stated.

"Who?" Her brother stared at her.

"All of these people here." She looked at him in the eye.

"I know." He stated calmly.

"Do you?"

"Yes. They hurt us everyday I remember. They raped you." He saw her flinch and hugged her to reassure her. "beat both of us and called us freaks. None of the authority did anything about it. They just watched."

"Are we freaks?" Anna inquired with a soft voice, muffled by his shirt.

"No. We're just different. Different is nothing to be ashamed about." Will said to her.

"I wish that someone would come. Maybe our mother or father, but it is useless to think about it because their gone. Do you remember them?"She asked.

"Yes. Mother's gentle voice and father's reassuring presence and then a man with a long white beard and half-moon glasses, but that's it." Will answered, smoothing her hair with is hand.

"I remember the same." She then snuggled deeper in her brother's warm embrace.

"Are you tired, Anna ?"

"No, well maybe a little." She answered, snuggling deeper.

"Sleep." He said softly.



"Thank you. Your always there when I need you there. I don't know what I would do if you weren't. Thank you." She replied, her voice getting softer as she succumbed to sleep.

"Your welcome. I love you my sister. Nothing will hurt you, when I'm here." Will answered as he smoothed her sister's blonde hair once more before falling to sleep beside her.


"Good morning. Are William and Susannah Savid here?" A pleasant voice inquired.

"Who are you?" Mrs. Freer asked suspiciously.

"I am Albus Dumbledore. May I see William and Susannah Savid?" The voice asked again.

"What do you want with them?" Mrs. Freer asked.

"Just to talk to them and tell them about the school that they are invited to go to." Albus Dumbledore said calmly.

"Follow me then." Mrs. Freer said disgruntled.

"Will. Did you hear that?"Anna asked in their small room.

"Yes. Though I don't like the sound of that Albus Dumbledore."Her brother answered.

"He sounds . That bastard!"Anna finally burst out with a lot of hate.

"I'm going to kill him."Will raged out a second later.

"No. Were going to. I want to be at your side Will. He hurt both of us. But we will have to plan it carefully. He's very sly and manipulative." Anna said, calming down.

"Of course. You're absolutely right." Charles calmed down.

"We will discuss it later. I can hear him coming with Mrs. Freer." His sister said.

A few seconds later and a knock could be heard. Mrs. Freer then opened it and their parent's murder stood. Mrs. Freer then closed the door and footsteps could be heard.

"Good morning. I am Albus Dumbledore." Dumbledore's blue eyes twinkled as he said the words.

"Nice to meet you." Both twins said.

"The reason I am here is to tell you that you are a witch and a wizard."His eyes twinkled further.

"That's impossible. Magic does not exist."Anna replied calmly.

"I'm afraid it does, my dear." He replied.

"Can you prove it."William asked.

"Of course." He then pulled out a thin piece of wood and said something that sounded like Incendo. A chair then burst into flames.

"Okay then. So we have magic." Anna said.

"That's right Susannah." He then put the flames out by saying agumantai. Susannah's eyes hardened slightly at her name being said so informally.

"So how do we learn how to do that?" Will asked expressionlessly.

"Here. These are letters for both of you regarding your schooling at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. If you want to attend you have to send a note of acceptance and picking up your school supplies before September 1st." Dumbledore pulled out two letters and handed them to the twins.

"Okay. So you are a representative or something." Anna asked.

"I am the Headmaster of the school." He replied.

"So can we just give you a note of acceptance now?" Will asked.

"Of course, my boy." His eyes twinkled brighter and both twins wanted to rip them out.

"How do we get our supplies?" Anna inquired.

"You get them by going to Diagon Alley." Dumbledore answered.

"Can you give us instructions on how to get there?" Anna asked.

"On August 20th a professor from Hogwarts will pick both of you up and will bring you there." Dumbledore calmly answered.

"Okay." Will commented.

"Well. It is time for me to leave. I will see you both on September 1st." Dumbledore headed toward the door.

"Good bye Headmaster." Anna replied.

"Good bye." Will added.

When he was out of the door and when both of them could hear his foot steps they started to discuss the conversation they just had.

"I always suspected we were different." Commented Allegra.

"So have I. Having magic will make it easier for us to get revenge on Dumbledore and these people who have hurt us." Will replied thoughtfully.

"Going to Diagon Alley next week will be fun. We will buy many books and get as much information as we can. Also we can get new clothes and maybe meet people our own age." Anna said, sounding excited.

"The only problem is that we don't have any money." Will commented, frowning.

"We could ask the professor when he or she comes." Anna said.

"Of course." Came the reply.
