          Tempest sat calmly on the incredibly fast moving trolley. On the third deck she sat on a bed as Edana slept. She looked at the letters trying to tell which one this girl Pansy had sent first.

"Okay, I think this is the first letter she sent him."

"You're jealous Zephyr, admit it," said Nila.

"I have no comment for you. Now look here and help me read these."

They sighed and obeyed without question. They knew that once she had her mind set on something, there was no point in argue in with her unless they just wanted to lose breath. As Zoltron had once said, she was a very adamant person.

She read the first letter. They really didn't talk much she acest. Finally after three letters her name was mentioned. Apparently she had told Draco to forget about her, and she repeated that same statement in every letter, which really began no annoy her.  Her fist clenched in anger and Nila had to pry the last letter from her hands.

"Calm down Zeph," said Void. He couldn't move from his seat because Edana was sleeping on his lap. She could sense thought that he wanted to get up. She could read his eyes. It was her speciality.



"Did you write to Draco?"

"Of course. The letters I received from him are in my case."

"Great, can I see them later?" He nodded and the bus suddenly came to a halt, waking Edana. Tempest, Nila, and Void looked at each other and walked to the centre to see who was boarding the bus.

Her necklace dangled in front of her face and she saw a flash of Nila's emerald ring and Voids band. They had grown very wary from past experiences. Tempests' eyes widened when she saw who it was. Harry Potter entered the bus and from what she could tell, under false pretences. She sat back against a bed and smiled to herself day-dreamingly.

"Look Void, someone's got a crush," whispered Nila so that only they could hear.

"Shut up."

They spent the duration of the trip in silence until they reached Knockturn Alley.

"I absolutely love Knockturn Alley," said Nila.

"I think we know that Nila. Calm down now," said Void irritably.

"Just shut it you two," ordered Tempest. They all walked close at her heels with their luggage.

They entered the Leaky Cauldron and walked to their rooms.  As Tempest walked up the stairs, she took note of everybody staring at her friends and herself and their pets.

When she reached the room her mother was in she turned the knob and walked inside.

"SURPRISE!" She looked around. Her mother, sister, brother, godparents, aunt, uncle, cousins, and Draco all stood around.

"What's all this for?"

"Your birthday of course," said her cousin Maddox holding his three-year-old little sister Silvias' hand. Tempest dropped her stuff and picked her up. Silvia reminded her so much of herself when she was that age.

"How are you both?" she asked giving Maddox a hug.

"All right. Hogwarts is quite hard, it would be more fun if you had come, I wish you had."

"So do I sometimes." They all had purple eyes, a trait of the Merlin bloodline that was always dominant. Her father carried more Morgan thought because of his mother whom everyone thought not to talk about. She ruffled Maddox's sandy brown hair.

She stuck out like a sore thumb compared to her family. All of them had dark purple eyes except for her and Zoltron. He had a greyish-blue like herself, the only difference was that her eyes were more grey than blue and they were highlighted by both red and purple outlines.

Tempest put her little cousin back down and messed up her dark black hair. Silvia just laughed and that laugh brought a smile to her face.

Tempest grabbed a piece of cake and sat down on the ground with Nila, Void, Zoltron, Maddox and Draco.

"Finally, I'm thirteen, just like the rest of you."

"Wait, but I'm fifteen."  Realization glowed darkly on his face as everyone just looked at him.  "Do not bloody tell me that I am the only fifteen-year-old year," said Zoltron.

"Sorry, but you are. See, my sisters are ten and seventeen, my brother is twenty and little Silvia is three." They all laughed except Draco. She took a bite out of her strawberry cake and looked at Maddox.

"Maddox, what house did you say you were in again?"

"Ravenclaw. I think I'm the only person who's not a Slytherin that Draco here talks to. I just realized that, like my mom, I'm in Ravenclaw."

"My dad was in Slytherin and my mom was in Slimythings. It's funny how we end up in a house like our parents.  Take us and Draco for example."

Draco ignored her completely and continued eating his piece of cake. Fine, she thought, if he's going to ignore me, I'm going to ignore him.

Tempest slumped against the wall in anger and continued eating her food in silence. When she finished, she stormed off outside. It was raining, but she didn't really care as she pulled back the urge to cry on anger. Suddenly a comforting hand was placed on her shoulder. She jerked her head around shocked at whom she saw.


"Are you all right?"

"Who are you and what have you done with my sister?" she remarked noting that fact that Selene was acting nice and not getting angry at being called her real name.

"Answer the question." Yup, this was her sister all right, she thought.

"Define all right," she said turning back around and slumping against the rain-drenched wall; Selene stood next to her.

"All right, what's going on exactly, between you and Draco?"

"He's being a complete ass toward me. Completely ignoring me when I just wanted to talk and well be with him. He's such a complete asshole."

"Calm down Tempest. Look, during the school year you see him what, for a few days. He's thirteen now, you're thirteen now, you guys aren't exactly children anymore." Tempest huffed and slouched to the ground.

"What is his problem exactly? I can't get over it if he doesn't tell me everything in full detail. I can't help get rid of the problem if I don't know it!"

"Have you thought that maybe its already been made plain to see?"  Tempest ignored her and listened to her sigh.  "Like I said before, calm down." Selene sat down next to her. "You know last year Oliver said that one day he's going to ask me to marry him. It sucks that Slytherin and Gryffindor hate each other. Do you really think he'll ask me?"

Tempest was happy that she had changed the subject. "Probably. I think the real question is, are you going to say yes?"

"I'm not sure. I love him, but I'm just not sure. I mean look at this family it's . . . well you know."

"Dangerous for people to get involved in considering we're, well I'm getting hunted which puts everybody in this family in trouble."  She paused.  "You know we're all going to want to meet him, and that alone might scare him away."  Tempest slightly laughed and Selene groaned and fished in her pocket pulling out her wallet.

"Look inside," she said throwing the wallet at Tempests' head. Tempest just laughed and looked inside. There was a picture of her in the arms of a guy she believed to be Oliver Wood.

"Is this him?"

"What do you think," she asked rhetorically.

"You should say yes if . . . when he asks. You two look very happy together." She gave the wallet back and hugged her knees. "Do you think . . . I don't know."

"No what?"

"Well that me and Draco will ever be the same, like we used to be?"

"Honestly?" Tempest nodded. "All right then, no, I don't. Your relationship will probably evolve or two could stay the way you are at this moment."

Tempest groaned and stood up. She paced for a while back and forth thinking about what her sister just said. Can I stay in this state with Draco forever? she asked herself. No, but what will happen if we evolve? How will that relationship affect us?  Worse, what will happen to us if it doesn't work out?  She stopped pacing and looked at her sister.

"Come on, we better get back in, you know how mom starts to worry if we're out at night for a while."

"I know," Selene said standing up. "One more thing though, this whole bonding we just did, between us, I don't think it would be prudent if we involved our family, then they'll begin to . . . expect things." Tempest laughed while Selene glared at her with her cold purple eyes.

"Blade, I think we should get going, don't you think?" she said mockingly.

"Just move it already."

"Aye, aye captain." Selene rolled her eyes and she pushed Tempest forward as she laughed her way down the hall.
