An empty cage sat on top if a once dusty table that now gleamed in the mid-day light. Harry Potter was very worn, tired really as he opened a letter in the same emerald writing he had seen so many times before. Still, the script was different and barely familliar; hand of McGonagall.
It is with great pleasure that i welcome you back to enrollment at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. Start of term begins September first. Your list of school suplies and train tickets are enclosed.
Also to warn you specifically, the Minestry or perhaps Mr. Weasley will be sending you a letter shortly. It is of great importance and you should consider it despite the fact that recently the minestry had been corupt. It affects more than you know.
Harry gave the school letter a confused expression. He had no idea what a letter from the Minestry could be about. What would it be about, what could It be about? He's done everything that was expected of him for his entire life. what more could they need of him?
Harry looked to the empty cage and took a deep breath. Sending letters back and forth had become difficult but that wasn't why he looked at the cage with such pain in his emerald eyes. Harry knew that he'd have to buy a new owl sooner or later but he completely loathed the idea. perhaps he could wait until school was done. Everyone he wrote too would be there and if he really needed to the school owls were there. It would give him more time, especially now after all the funerals and on rolling tears. He just couldn't do it quite yet.
Harry had pulled away in his greif, secluded himself in number 12 Grimwald Place. They gave him the space he needed and he was quite thankful.
click, click, tap... Harry looked to the window to find a large tawny owl pecking the glass smartly. "I guess they really don't waste time do they?" he asked himself as he opened the window. The bird teetered in, holding himself up with dignity and pride on making the delivery of a large envelope. Harry opened it, spotting Mr.Weasley's scrawling letters across the page and a clipping from the Daily Prophet fell onto the table. A girl around his own age stared up at him un moving or blinking. only way you could tell it was a wizard photo was the air shifting her long wavey hair and the back ground moved subtly. She had the most disturbing empty expression on her face. almond eyes unblinking surrounded by a defined, heart-shaped face. Even in such empty dispair she was easily the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. slowly he tore his eyes away to the headline:
The Wood Elves Biggest Secret- Lost Princess Reveiled
Surprised he put the clipping down and picked up the letter. He couldn't help but look at her one more time before he secured his eyes to the letter.
Im sending you this on behalf of the minestry and myself. I've also enclosed a clipping that explains a little of the situation. Very little mind you but it's the most we have at the moment. This girl has been quite frightened and was rather emotionally unstable but theres not questioning anyone wouldn't be if they had gone through what she had.But because she can have magic expulsions most think that it's not quite safe for an average person to handle, especially impatient teachers with a class full of students. She's going to need extra help and guiedence so we're wondering if you would help her fall into place amongst the comunity and tutor her until she is caught up to the normal standards of our and what will be her kind.. You have beaten death, surely you can handle one untrained witch. Although it is true her temper did get rather harsh when she came out of the strange emotional shut down we found her in. Blown, half her house away when the spell that kept her muggle-like lifted. Strange magic, but it killed her adopted parents. It was just after "you know who's" destruction. I guess that after he was gone there was no need for the spell to keep working. It scared her terribly to wake up so signigicantly changed, her hair changed from light brown to a black brown with red in it, her eyes brown to a strange amber/green. even her ears are slightly angled now. All that built up power blew up her home (gas leak they said to the, please-men or whatever). theres no wonder she reacted the way she did. but she's gotten much better now.She mostly reads and dosn't speak unles spoken to. She is increditably articulate considering her life. Its quite remarkable.But for her sake I do hope that you take on this one last task. She's nothing like the mess in the picture anymore, don't worry. We tried to keep her secret for a while, till everything was cleaned up we managed to. Just last week it leaked.
Also, Molly wanted me to tell you that we want you to come visit. Molly misses you very much and Hermione is visiting for the summer with Ron. We're all a bit worried that you have been spending too much time alone these days. Come any time.
