{Hey guys! So we know that we're still working on Just an Emissary and a story that we've adopted call Alchemy's Child, but we just HAD to write this!}

The plot bunny was ratting around out heads for weeks!

And the idea was just soooo good!

{Don't worry we will still be updating out other story.}

But we don't know how long it will be until we update this one.


Chapter 1

The Beginning

Allen Walker didn't have a very good home life at the circus where she lived. Her only friend was a man named Mana Walker who cared for the girl and gave her the same name as his deceased dog. Almost right after she met Mana, she received an acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Allen accepted at the urging of her only friend.

At school, Allen was sorted into Slytherin. She was a rude and withdrawn child who hesitated to form relationships. The only people she really talked to in the school was her housemate Draco Malfoy and three Gryffindors by the names of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley. She didn't actually form any true friendships with these people. She simply talked with them a few times, sat with them in class, and hung out with them when she was bored. Although she was so withdrawn, she was well remembered due to her habit of insulting anyone who tried to show her the slightest bit of kindness.

During her Christmas break, Mana Walker officially adopted Allen on December 25th. Allen decided to quit school in order to travel with Mana. After all, who wouldn't rather travel with their best friend, now father, instead of sitting around a school where practically everyone avoided you?

It was only a year later that Mana died, leaving Allen, once again, alone. After the horrific incidents of that night, Allen became the apprentice of General Cross for the following three years until she was abandoned in India with the mission to seek out the Black Order, but that was awhile ago.

Allen was eating breakfast in the dining hall when her best friend Lenalee came up to her. "Good Morning, Allen!" the long, greenish haired girl greeted.

"Oh, hello, Lenalee!"

"My brother asked to see you in his office. He has a new mission for us. I'll meet you there after I go deliver the message to a few other people, okay?"

"Okay. I'll be there as soon as I finish eating." The long haired girl nodded and left to go find the others.

Allen quickly finished her large breakfast, took her plates back to the kitchen, and left for Komui's office.

Five minutes later, Lenalee, Kanda, Lavi, and Komui were all inside the Chief Officer's office waiting for the last exorcist to join them. "Are you sure that you gave her the message?" asked Lavi as he checked the clock once more.

"Yes. She was just finishing her breakfast. I suspected that she would already be here." As she finished talking, the door crashed open to reveal a panting and slightly sweaty Allen.

"S-sorry! I got lost."

"Che. You really are useless, aren't you Short Stack." Kanda insulted the young exorcist. Before Allen could reply, Komui interrupted.

"Well, now that we're all here, I have a new mission for you four. We have received a request to send a few exorcists to a school that has been having Akuma attacks. The students shall be returning soon, so you four shall be going them to protect the school and the students in it. This is an undercover mission. You shall be given a full briefing by the finder that will be accompanying you to Kings Cross station where you will be meet by a few teachers who will take you to a place where you can stay for the remainder of the summer. Staying there will help get you used to the strange circumstances that this mission entails. Well, off you go! You leave in ten minutes. Meet by the main gates. Oh, and Kanda, Lavi, you two better watch over My precious Lenalee and Allen-chan. I won't forgive you if they're harmed!" The two females left the room with Komui still instructing the two males on what is and isn't appropriate behavior towards the two girls.

They split ways to go to their individual rooms. In her room, Allen packed her few belongings into a small bag before heading down to the main hall. She had seven minutes left but still hurried because she knew that she would get lost, even after all this time. It just went to show what a horrible sense of direction she had.

On the train, the finder who sat with the four exorcists in the compartment handed them each a packet. "All of the information that you guys need to know is in there." The rest of the ride was spent in silence.

Allen stared at the words in front of her. She never thought that she would be returning to that place.

Mission: Protect the students and teachers of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from Akuma.

Headmaster of Hogwarts: Albus Dumbledore

Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts: Minerva McGonagall

You will be staying at the headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix, which is headed by the headmaster of Hogwarts, for the remainder of the summer in order to gather information on wizards before entering the school.

At Kings Cross Station you will meet with Severus Snape and Minerva McGonagall to be escorted to the headquarters.

Cover: Four students transferring to Hogwarts for a year as part of an exchange program with Black Cross Academy for Unconventional Magic.

Yu Kanda, Lavi Bookman, Lenalee Lee, and Allen Walker will all be in the fifth year.

Oh well. She would have to find a way to deal with it. Allen wondered if Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco still remembered her. She quickly dismissed the idea. It wasn't like they'd recognize her if they did. She was so much different than she had been back then. She spent the rest of the ride reading the materials they would be expected to know if they had really spent four years at a magic school.

Severus stood impatiently on platform seven. The train was expected to arrive any minute. Dumbledore had explained the full story behind these people being here, but that didn't mean that he wanted to be put on babysitting duty. At least he only had to last until they got back to headquarters. He still didn't know why the headmaster did something as idiotic as allowing people they had never even met inside headquarters.

The train came to a stop in front of him. He saw Minerva stiffen next to him. People got off the train and headed in different directions. He carefully looked around for the group of four that he would be escorting. His attention was drawn to a mop of flaming red hair. He silently hoped that the people weren't somehow related to the weasleys. He had taught more than enough of them to last his entire lifetime.

He then noticed that the read hair was accompanied by a long, bluish looking ponytail, two long, greenish-looking pigtails, and a head of pure white hair. Somehow, he guessed that these were the people they were looking for. He pointed them out to the woman next to him who then raised her hand and waved them over. As they exited the crowds, he couldn't help but stare at their odd choice of clothing.

The red-haired man was wearing a mid-thigh length coat that was dark blue, almost black, with white accents and a strange looking, silver rose cross over the heart. His hair was held out of his face by a green bandana with a scale pattern that was worn across his forehead. His second green eye was covered by a black eye patch. His knee-high black boots covered most of his white pants. The last thing he noticed about the boy's outfit was the long, orange scarf that was wrapped around the boy's neck.

The, strangely, dark blue haired boy wore his hair up in a high ponytail that made him look strangely manly even though his hair was girly. His grayish black eyes seemed to be threatening everything they feel on as if that piller and that stranger had personally insulted his mother. He was wearing a coat similar to the first boy, but his went down to his mid-calf where they then showed his black boots. The strangest thing about this boy was the sword that he had strapped on his waist. His hand was innocently laying on it as if he expected to be attacked any second.

The first girl had greenish looking hair that was put up in high pigtails that then fell to her mid-back. Her coat was, again, similar to the first two only her's ended at her waist. She wore a skirt that was so short that it caused many men in the station stare at her with longing. She had green eyes that weren't as bright as the first boy's. Her, also, black boots went all the way up to her mid-thighs. She looked the friendliest of the group.

The last girl was the one with the strangest hair. It was pure white and was cut in a very boyish style. She had bluish-silver eyes that seemed to radiate innocence. She wore a coat that was the most similar as the long haired boy's only with a hood. She also wore black pants and boots. The thing about here that drew his attention was the red scar over her left eye. It started up in her bangs in an upside down star that then went in a line over her eye, to the left, and down again with a short line though the part under her eye. He wondered what could have caused it.

"Hello Professors McGonagall and Snape." It was the white haired girl who spoke. Her voice was strangely familiar, as was her face. He didn't know where he recognized her from, but decided he could ask later.

"Let's get going. We don't want to attract attention." The others nodded at his suggestion and they all started walking to the exit. He noticed that they all had little luggage. Good. That would make the journey easier.

Snape and McGonagall lead the trio to an alley five blocks away from the station before activating the portkey.

Ugg. He hated portkeys. Then again, he hated most types of wizarding travel. He looked over the group to see how they had reacted. Other than looking a little green, they were fine. He led them out of the alley they had landed in and across the park. They stopped in front of number eleven Grimmauld Place.

"Here," McGonagall handed the four a piece of parchment, "read and memorize this."

Number 12 Grimmauld Place

Seeing that they were reacting to seeing the building, some more then others, Snape led them into the hidden building.

The quartet followed their escorts into the building that had come from nowhere. They were a little skeptical about the building, but they had read the reports and knew what magic was capable of. They went inside. The inside was just as rundown looking as the outside. It was dark, stuffy, and dusty. Definitely wasn't the creepiest of places they had been to, but they still didn't want to stay here for too long.

"What is this place, the creepy, haunted house down the lane?" Lavi tried to break the awkward silence that encased the group.

"Che, Stupid Usagi."

"He's just trying to break the silence. That's no reason to insult him Bakanda!"

"It's plenty of reason, Short Stack! He should learn when to keep his mouth shut."

"It's Allen!" Lavi and Lenalee slowly backed away from the two when they recognized Black Allen. The two teachers simply stared at the two in confusion. As the argument escalated, Snape realized that he recognized one of those voices. The only question was, where did he recognize it from?

"What's with all the shouting?" asked a very motherly looking red-headed woman who walked into the hall from the room at the end of the hall.

"Ah, we're sorry about them," said Lenalee from the other side of the arguing duo.

"Shouldn't we stop them now?" Lavi looked at Lenalee.

"Yeah, I guess we should." The girl walked up to her comrades and hit both of them on the head. "Will you two cut it out? And Allen, calm down." The white-head calmed down considerably in only the few seconds that the girl had been talking. She turned to the people who had been listening to the argument.

"I am very sorry that you had to listen to that. I hope that you can forgive us. Now, shall we continue?" McGonagall cleared her throat and turned to the redhead behind her.

"Yes, good idea. Molly, would you mind getting dinner ready?"

"What? Oh, yes. Actual, dinner is ready anytime you are," Molly said looking between the adults and the children.

"Well then, why don't we eat. Everything will be explained then." Molly lead the way into the room at the end of the hall. There was a fireplace at one end, a long table with chairs that was meant to seat many people, and a small kitchen at the other end. There was three men sitting at the table who stopped their conversation and looked up when the group walked in. One had a scarred face and a strange glass eye that zipped around the quartet of new comers suspiciously. The next one had scruffy black hair that fell to his shoulders. The last one had brown hair and was wearing worn clothes that sported at least five patches.

"Did you find out the cause of the disturbance, Molly?" asked the brown-haired man.

"Oh, um, yes. We have a few, um, guests. How does dinner sound? Oh! Sirius, would you be a dear and go get the kids?" The scruffy haired man got up and walked into the hallway, giving the group a curious glance as he passed them. "Feel free to sit down. I hope that you're hungry!" The woman walked to the kitchen and started picking up dishes.

"Here, let me help you!" A cheerful Lenalee walked over to the woman and picked up some food.

"Oh! No need. You're a guest, after all."

"Don't worry about it! Besides, Allen will most likely eat you out of house and home. Think of this as my way to apologize ahead of time."

"Oh, I'm sure he won't!"

"Ha, many people think that, at first." The woman let it drop and accepted the girl's help.

When the table was set and ready for dinner, Lenalee sat down in between Kanda and Allen. Lavi sat on Allen's other side, as far away from Mugen as he could get. The two men from earlier were sitting farther down the table from them. The one with the strange eye was glaring at them suspiciously while the other was observing them with curiosity. Molly was still walking around putting finishing touches on the dinner when the door opened again to reveal the scruffy man along with five other kids.

Five of them were obviously related to the red-haired woman seeing as how they all had the same red hair. There was a pain of twins, a guy around Allen's age, and a girl who looked to be the youngest. There was also one other girl who had bushy, brown hair and an air of knowledge around her.

Allen stared at the bushy haired girl and the read head who was the same age. She knew who they were. But they most likely didn't remember her. She didn't want them to remember her. She was ashamed of how she had treated them. Draco, Harry, Hermione, and Ron were the only ones who still included her and tried to be nice to her even though she insulted them every chance she got. She thought that they would be mad at her. Who wouldn't be? She had been nothing but mean to them. She didn't want her to hold a grudge against her for how she had treated them. She pulled the hood of her coat up and over her head in a feeble attempt to hide her face.

The five kids sat across from the exorcists. "Who are you?" the red headed boy with the suspicious glare asked bluntly.

"We're exchange students from Black Cross Academy for Unconventional Magic. My name's Lenalee Lee. It's nice to meet you!"

"Hey! I'm Lavi Bookman." After a few seconds of silence, Lenalee elbowed the boy next to her.

"Che, Kanda Yu."

All eyes turned to the only 'exchange student' who had yet to give her name. "A-allen," she almost whispered with what seemed to be a shyness.

"Are you okay, Allen?" Lavi asked the girl while putting his hand on her forehead. The girl he knew had never showed any sign of shyness when meeting new people. She was always polite and open. Why would she act shy now?

The hand was pushed away. "I'm fine. Let's eat." As if on command, the girl's stomach gave off a growl that radiated around the entire room. The motherly woman decided to break the tension in the room with food.

"You dears are so thin! Here you go," she filled their plates with food, "Eat up!"

Allen started eating quickly, the others at a slightly slower pace. The rest of the people in the room also took food and began eating. The most observant at the table noticed that the Allen girl was done with her third serving by the time everyone had food on their plates. Hermione frowned as she saw the girl reach fill her plate for the fifth time.

"Are you sure that you'll be able to eat all that?"

"Oh, don't worry about Allen. She's eaten more than double that for desert," Lavi said with a smile on his face.

"Y-you're a very good cook, Molly," the hooded girl said in a small voice.

"Why, thank you, dear. Um, how did you know my name?"

"O-oh, Professor McGonagall called you that in the hallway."

"Well that explains it. Oh my! We haven't properly introduced ourselves. I'm Mrs. Weasley. Those are my kids with the red hair."

"I'm Fred," said one of the twins.

"And I'm George," said the other. "Or, am I Fred…

"And I'm George?"

"Actually, I think that I'm Forge."

"Then I must be Gred."

"Oh! Knock it off you two! That's Fred and the other is George," Mrs. Weasley pointed out the twins.

"I'm Ginny, the little sister."

"My name's Hermione Granger. It's nice to meet you."

"I guess I'm last. I'm Ron."

"So," Hermione tried to spark up a conversation, "what year will you be in?"

"We're all in our fifth year," Lenalee answered for the group. "You guys?"

"Seventh," the twins simultaneously answered.

"Fourth," said Ginny.

"Me and Ron are in the fifth year as well. So is our friend Harry. We'll have to introduce you guys to him." The conversation lulled.

"Is that really a sword?" Ron asked pointing Mugen which hung off of Kanda's belt.

"Yes," Kanda growled back with annoyance.

"Why do you carry a sword?" Ginny asked. The innocent question was met with another growl.

"It's a conductor for his magic," Lenalee answered.

"Why doesn't he just use a wand?" Hermione asked.

"Well, our school is for unconventional magic." Lavi said. "We don't use wands. Instead, every student has an object that is used to conduct out magic for a certain purpose. It can be limiting on what can actually be done , but we can use actual wands as well. That's why we're going to Hogwarts. To learn how to use the same kind of magic that you guys do."

"So, Kanda's object is a sword," Fred started.

"But what are yours?" George finished.

"Well, mine are my boots," Lenalee said.

"This little guy!" Lavi pulled his small black, hammer out of his holster and showed it before putting it back. Allen didn't answer.

"And, Allen's?" Hermione asked.

"Um, Allen's is special. It's a lot harder to explain…" Lenalee trailed off.

"Well, it's getting late. Why don't you head up to bed? Lenalee, Allen, you two can stay with Ginny and Hermione. Lavi, Kanda, you two can stay with Ron." Mrs. Weasley stood up and started gathering dishes. Allen made a strange noise when she finished talking. "Is something wrong, dear?"

"The house will be destroyed…"

"What do you mean?"

What I think Allen's trying to say," Lenalee continued for her strangely shy friend, "is that if Kanda and Lavi share a room then it, and most of the house, will most likely end up destroyed." The woman stared at her with shock and disbelief on her face.

"I'm sure-"

"If you have a library, I'd be fine sleeping in there," Lavi interrupted.

'Nonsense, you're a guest!"

"Please, ma'am, I insist."

"Fine. Fred, you show Lavi to the library and get him some blankets. George, you help me with the dishes." All those who were under eighteen, other than George, left the room and split up to go the their respected rooms.

This is going to be a long year. Allen thought as she climbed the stairs.

Well, what'd ya think?

Let us know and reviwe! We really want to know what you guys think about this story.

{See ya next time!}
