Authors note: This is my first story. It is based on the movie Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn. This first chapter is set during Sirius sixth year. Enjoy!

Once upon a time, there was a small girl living on a large estate. The estate was very large indeed. There were plenty of servants to take care of this large estate. There were gardeners to take care of the gardens, cleaners to clean the large house, and there were specialists to take care of the outdoor quidditch court and the indoor quidditch court. Also on the estate there were two squib cooks, a mother and her daughter, and the daughters name was Sabrina. They had come from France to cook for the most Noble and Ancient House of Black. 

Sabrina was a plain girl with brown eyes and brown hair. Every day she wore the Black's servant uniform. It was an emerald green dress with the Black family crest on the front. She also wore a white apron that always seemed to get dirty. She hated the uniform, she wished for some pretty dresses like what the pure blooded girls wore.

Once, she had told her mother of her hatred for the uniforms. Her mother told her that she was "reaching for the moon", an expression she often said.

The Black family was having their annual ball. It never rained on the Black ball; the Blacks wouldn’t have stood for it. There were four Blacks in all. Mr. and Mrs. Black had been married for twenty years. Among their many wedding presents was the Grimmauld estate. Sirius, the eldest son, was the only one who didn’t fit among his family. He was a ‘Gryffindor’ who refused to listen to his parents. The younger son was named Regulus, he was a shy, but handsome boy. He was to inherit all of the Black’s things, as Sirius had proven himself unworthy.

"Hee Hee Haw!" laughed the girl dancing with Regulus Black.

Sabrina watched the party with great contempt. Sabrina hated girls who laugh so awfully thought Sabrina. But then again, Sabrina hated most girls that were interested in either of the Black brothers, particularly Regulus. She was rather frightened of Sirius, the eldest son, as there were often many arguments whenever he was home.

Sabrina was spying on the party from the window of her room. She shared her room with her mother. It was located near the kitchen, where the rest of the servants sleep.

"Sabrina, will you please pay attention to me. You must help me pack your things." said her mother.

Oh yes, thought Sabrina. She had tried in vain to forget that she was being sent away to France, to a cooking school no less. As a squib, she couldn’t go to Hogwarts with her dear Regulus. But as it is, he doesn't even know she exists.

"Mother, I really don't want to go to Paris. I'd rather stay here with you." Sabrina said, trying to kiss up to her mother.

"Yes, you'd rather be here with me… and Regulus." Mother replied knowingly. "But you must go and clear your head. It is foolishness to think that Regulus will fall in love with you, dear. You mustn’t go reaching for the moon dear." Mother said sadly.

"You never know mother, I think Regulus is different than the rest of his family." Sabrina sighed, and helped her mother pack.
