A young girl sat on her windowsill staring outside at the dark foggy forest off in the distance. In a few hours she wouldn't get to see this scene for an entire year. She didn't know if she would miss it, or be thankful for being away from this house. It was still dark out, but Cecilia couldn't sleep, she was used to being up around this time. But, tomorrow –or should she say today – was important. She was embarking on her first step into adulthood; she was going to finally be attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was ecstatic, and also a little apprehensive. She had secret that she wasn't sure would be her downfall especially in a new, unfamiliar place... She was a ...view middle of the document...
“You will be fine. My mother would be completely hopeless without you around. Just try to stay out of their way and you should be fine.” She took a sip of her drink, the color instantly began to return to her face; she sighed in content. “Cecilia!” Cecilia groaned; there goes the happiness.
A girl with long brown hair braided down her back, pale skin, and hazel eyes, appeared in the doorway. The girl was Daphne, Cecilia's twin sister; they looked exactly alike except for Cecilia's medium length black hair which she normally wore in a bob. “What is it Daphne?” Cecilia asked, not even looking up from her cup. Daphne glared at her sister; Cecilia was a disgrace to pure-bloods, in Daphne's mind, yet she always acted so cool and calm as if being a half-breed was an accomplishment. “We are heading for Kings Cross in an hour. Father said to be ready before then.” She replied. She nodded in response; Daphne puffed her cheeks out indignantly. “You better make sure you're ready ahead of time! I want to make sure I get to share a booth with Draco!” She shouted before slamming the door.
Cecilia scowled. 'Draco...' She thought with disdain. The twins only knew him through their parents. The Graves and Malfoys have been close for as long as she could remember. However, where as Daphne was deeply infatuated with the blonde haired, silver eyed devil, Cecilia can not bare to be in the same vicinity as that arrogant git, but she had to put up a facade; she couldn't disrespect the son of a family friend of such high standing. She finished her cup, placed it on the trolly, then got prepared for her day.
~King's Cross Station~
“You'll have the best time in Slytherin, my dears.” Their mother, Catherine, told them with a wide smile, as they made their way through the crowds. She walked close to her husband, Ivan, who had a noticeable scowl on his face. “Let us hurry to the station. Being around all of these bloody muggles is making me ill.” 'Pure-bloods...' Cecilia sighed. They found the pillar quickly, Ivan took hold of Daphne's trolly, “Come along, Daphne.” She smiled up at him as they both took the trolly and ran for the pillar, then disappeared; none of the people passing seemed to notice. “Our turn dear.” Catherine said with a smile to the eldest twin, Cecilia nodded with a slight smile. Just like her father and sister before them, Cecilia and Catherine held onto the trolly together and ran for the pillar, the next thing they knew, there was a bright red train standing before them; hundreds of kids were hugging their parents and boarding it.
“I think I see Draco!” Cecilia heard her sister cheer once she and her mother found her and their father among the crowd. “I will join you, Dear.” Catherine smiled, “I haven't spoken to Narcissa in quite some time.” They both disappeared into the crowd, leaving Ivan and Cecilia alone. “Cecilia,” Ivan put a hand on his daughter's shoulder, “How are you feeling? Have you taken your medicine?”
“I'm fine, Dad. Of course...
