A/N: Hey my peoples! This chapter will answer some of your questions, and it’ll raise a few. Here it is and enjoy


********Twyla's POV*********

I sighed; I knew that was going to happen before the words were even out of Albus' mouth. Ali was very sensitive about her powers over the mind.

"Was it something I said?" Albus asked us. Tyler shook his head.

"No, it's just Ali. She has always been that way. She refuses to sing to humans. She sang for you because of what you've done for her, but she didn't sing to her full potential. Ali's greatest fear is losing control of herself." he replied. I nodded in agreement.

"Yes, even when we begged her to be the lead singer of the human band we created when we were kids, she refused. She told me I should do it, but I usually get stage fright if I'm the center of attention. I suggested Shauna but she flat out refused that, too. She said that as much as she loved her, Shauna's voice had no singing potential, so she couldn't even teach her. So that left Tyler, who, as my twin, has a great singing voice but no stage fright. So Ali ended up being the lead guitarist, and she taught us how to play the instruments we chose. I chose the keyboard-"

"And I chose the bass guitar-" Tyler interrupted.

"And Shauna chose the drums. Ali didn't really give us much choice, since we had decided on a rock band, but she would've taught us any instrument we wanted. I had always wanted to play the piano, so of course I chose the keyboard. And Shauna prefers to be in the back anyway." I finished. Albus looked thoughtful.

"Why is Ali afraid of losing control?" he asked. I was surprised; I had thought Ali had already told him. I looked at Tyler, he shrugged and turned to Albus.

"Well you know how my sister, Ali, and Shauna are the legendary Tricolour. And that they all have three colors instead of one. Well, instead of all of Ali's colors showing like the rest of them, her third color, red, remained dormant. That is until Ali got so angry, that she would lose control of her self and her 'red form', Ember we call her, would come out and kill the person Ali was pissed at, and usually Ali regains control, and sends Ember back into her mind. But one time Ali never regained control, and Ember took over her body and mind. Soon, Ember went to work for the pixies, Our worst enemy. Ember killed millions, including humans. But one day Ember went too far, and killed Rune, Ali's fiancé. Something inside Ali snapped and she regained control. When she repossessed her body and saw what had happened, she went immediately went to Otik, the pixie king, and resigned. Well, Otik wasn't happy about that, and put a huge bounty on her head. So Ali fled to the human realm and became human to escape Otik, the Elders didn't want her to go alone so they sent Shauna with her to pose as her sister. This was a good thing, ‘cause Ali was an emotional wreck. What with the loss of her fiancé and the knowledge that she had killed millions, innocent and guilty, we were surprised that she didn't kill her self. She needed the emotional support. The Elders looked in on Ali, and thought that she needed more than a 'sister', she needed all her friends. So they sent us." Tyler replied. I nodded solemnly.

"Yes. I had no idea how large and thick the wall that Ali built around her heart was. I'm afraid that she has let no one else get close to her. I fear she cannot be helped. But we will try to break down her barrier and teach her to love again." I said. It was true, although she put on a bright smile and happy posture, her aura was a darker black than usual. It was like looking into a bottomless pit, no light anywhere. It was scary.

Albus nodded and told us that we would be in Gryffindor along with Ali and Shauna, and that we would be introduced to the school tomorrow morning at breakfast. We waved and walked out the door and down the stairs. As we neared the floor I said to my brother,

"You know, I think I'll cut my hair."

********Lily's POV********

Ali and Shauna were acting very strangely. Every time I looked over at them they were stealing glances at each other and giggling like excited school girls (which they kinda were). Once Ali whispered something in Shauna’s ear and she sprayed her pumpkin juice out of her nose she was laughing so hard. Seeing them like this brought back that feeling of longing I felt whenever I saw a pair of close sisters. I was dying to know what they were going on about, but I figured that it was a sister thing. I got my answer when Dumbledore stepped up to the podium.

The hall instantly fell silence as he held up his knarled old hand. Ali and Shauna looked like they were holding back laughter.

“I have an announcement to make; we’ve got a transfer, two actually, from Beauxbatons Academy. May I present Miss Twyla Davis and Mr. Tyler Davis, who has been sorted into Gryffindor!” He said. The hall erupted into applause, Ali’s and Shauna’s the loudest of them all, as a pair of fraternal twins walked down the aisle.

********Sirius’ POV********

Twyla moved down the aisle with grace and elegance that I’ve never seen. Her long blonde hair fell down her back (just above her bottom) like a waterfall of liquid pollen. Her eyes shone like brilliant sapphires, her teethe like perfect pearls. She wore a light blue fitted midriff-bearing, off-the-shoulder top with billowing sleeves and a long brown peasant skirt.

Tyler… well, no need to go into *him*. Just because he’s half-way decent looking all the girls turn to gawk at him and completely ignore me! How rude.

When they neared our table Ali and Shauna popped out of their seats and tackled them with monster hugs and squeals. Tyler hugged both of them and kissed the tops of their heads. Remus loudly cleared his throat, obviously jealous. Ali whipped around to face us with a guilty expression.

“Sorry! Intros! Guys, this is Twyla and Tyler. We’ve known each other since we were just a year old. Ty, Twy this is Lily” she pointed to Lily, “Kathy,” point to Kathy, “Kat,” points to Kat, “Will,” points to the resident apple-head, “James,” points to my bestest pally, “Sirius,” points to the best-looking dude in the school, “and, my boyfriend, Remus,” she points to my jealous pal. Tyler and Twyla did a double take at the word ‘boyfriend.’ Tyler takes a long hard look at Remus, and then breaks into a wide grin. Remus looks confused.

“Thank you.” Tyler says sincerely. Remus looks even more confuzzeled.

“Excuse me?” he asks. Tyler puts arm around Ali and she leaned her head on his shoulder.

“For being able to find away to touch her heart. She has built up a wall that would make the Great Wall of China blush. For that I thank you. I didn’t think she would ever smile again, after what happened to Rune. So, for that, I thank you.” He replied. Remus gave a weak smile, not quite sure how to reply to that. I looked at Twyla and saw she was surveying the food with disgust.

“Something wrong, Twyla?” I asked. She nodded.

“Everything’s meat! Doesn’t this place have anything that didn’t once have a face?” she replied. I looked around and saw a vegetable platter. I picked it up and handed it to her. She smiled her thanks, sat down next to Ali’s seat, and put some of the veggies on her plate. Ali looked at Twyla’s hair, quizzically.

“Twyla, did you cut your hair?” she asked. I looked at Twyla, who nodded. She swallowed the bite of corn she just took and answered,

“Just a few inches. The way it was before it kept getting caught in my knees.” Ali sat down next to her.

“I like it! I just thought you would cut your hair that short.”

*That* is short?

********Lily’s POV********

I watched the new trio the entire lunch. As I watched them laugh and joke around, I couldn’t help think that they go together like three peas in a pod.

Ali was the Sexy Seductress, Twyla the Elegant Beauty, and Shauna the Sweet Cutie. I guess Tyler was the Prince Charming, but I’ll confirm that after I get to know him better.

*I hope he doesn’t turn out to be like James and Sirius* I thought, worried.

When breakfast was over I rushed to the dorm to try to get some last minute studying in before classes.

********James’ POV********

I watched has Lily left the Great Hall in a hurry. I got the feeling that she didn’t like Twyla too much. I think she feels like she going to be pushed aside and she and Ali won’t be as close.

I think Mooney and Padfoot are worried that Ali will date Tyler.

Ali’s quite popular, isn’t she?

Tyler and Twyla left with Shauna as Ali waited for the rest of her friends. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a group of girls follow Tyler out of the Hall.

Great, now I get to hear Sirius complain about Tyler in a jealous rage.

Oh joy.

I got up and left and, when I entered the hallway, I saw Tyler cornered by the group of girls I saw earlier. They were blocking his way up the stair case. From the look on his face, I don’t think he was enjoying it to much.


I saw Twyla sitting by the wall, an amused look on her face. Then I was nearly knocked over by a brown blur, but not nearly as bad as Tyler, who nearly knocked over his groupies by the force of Ali jumping on his back. Then Shauna walked up beside me, smiled at me, then walk up to Ali and Tyler. Twyla looked like she was holding back laughter, got up and glided over to them.

When the groupies got over the initial shock of nearly falling over, they saw that it was Ali who had knocked over Tyler and walked away, solemnly.

You’ve never seen such looks of disappointment.

Ali hopped off Tyler’s back and smiled at him.

“I figured you needed saving.” She said a sly grin appearing on her face. Tyler put his hands at the base of his back, and bent backward, popping his back.

“You figured right. But next time you try to save me from a group of crazy girls, please don’t break my back also. Damn, girl! Have you been training to be a football player?” he said righting himself. Ali laughed and shook her head.

“No, but I am a beater for the Gryffindor Quidditch team.” She replied. I slithered up to her and put my arm around her shoulders.

“The best damn beater we’ve had in years!” I popped in, grinning. Twyla grinned weakly.

“Why am I not surprised?” she said, warily. Ali laughed again, and hugged Twyla.

“Come on. Let’s go for a walk around the lake and catch up! You comin’ James?” She asked me directly. As much as I wanted to, I figured she was just being polite, so I shook my head.

“Nah, I’ll just see what Sirius, Remus, and Peter are up to. Catch ya later!” I said waving, then I walked away. Shauna nodded and the quartet walked away.

********Ali’s POV********

I sat by the fire for a good portion of the night. I told Shauna and them that I was going to study when we got back from the walk. It wasn’t a total lie, I completely planned on studying, but my mind was elsewhere. The Time was nearing. I didn’t have much longer until Ember decided my fate. Two days left until Ember decided when I would die. It could be the day after, or a100 days after. I had to do something to get in her good graces. But what?

Let’s see, I could either A) Kill someone or B)…
