Chapter 1

Charms Gone Horriblely Wrong

“Okay, Harry. What was that incantation again?”
“Brooke, you do know that if you just paid attention in class, you wouldn’t always have to ask me?” My best friend, Harry Potter (yes, the Harry Potter) informed me.
“Yes, Harry. But, technically, I’m not asking you, I’m asking Hermione, because everyone knows you and Ron would’ve failed your O.W.L.s last year without her.”
“That’s true.”
Harry and I looked at each other for a second, and then started laughing.
Before I go any farther, I should tell you a few things.
Hi, I’m Brooke Black, daughter of Sirius Black, the recently deceased ‘mass murderer’. Well, he was my dad, I guess. He died last year. I wish I could have gotten to know him better, Harry and Remus said he was a great guy. Harry says that I’m like him in a lot of ways, like my sense of humor, my alleged 'smarts’, and my tumbling curly black hair.
I was thinking of my father as I said the incantation, and as result, I said it wrong.
“Timendo Reductus!”
Everything around me swirled into a tornado of colors and sounds; I could see the green of the trees, the dark blue of the lake, could hear Harry yelling my name in astonishment, before the loud WHOSH forced my eyes shut and cloud my ears.
Then suddenly, everything stopped. I opened my eyes to a completely different, yet strangely familiar scene. The black lake, the Forbidden Forest, the only difference was that the trees were smaller, and Harry wasn’t sitting next to me.
A boy who looked about my age came running over the hill, looking worried.
“Are you alright?” he asked me. I hadn’t noticed until that second that I had fallen over.
“I’m fine,” I said taking his outstretched hand and pulling myself up. As I did I finally got a good look at his face. “Harry, how did you get to the castle and back out here so fast? Did I pass out or something?”
The boy stared at me. “Who’s Harry? I’m James, James Potter.”
I looked at him again.
“Aw, sh/t.”
