Daughter of a Werewolf

Chapter One:

“You’ll be okay, Artemis, I promise” Remus Lupin said as he wrapped his arms around his eleven-year-old daughter, Artemis Lupin. It was her first year at Hogwarts and she was terrified. “Once you go, you’ll never want to leave.” He joked. Artemis’s head shot up from her father’s shoulder.

“I’ll always want to come home. I will be coming home for Christmas, right?” Artemis asked.

“Of course you will. I’ll be counting down the days.” Remus said. Artemis smiled and hugged her father tightly. “Now be good, do all your homework, be respectful to your teachers and most importantly have fun and make good friends”

 Artemis smiled and took a step back, it was nearing eleven o’clock and the scarlett red train would be leaving soon to take the hundreds of student to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

“I’ll miss you” Artemis said.

“I’ll miss you too and Tiger” He said as he nodded towards, Artemis’s cat, which was unhappily sitting inside his cage.

“I’ll write every week, I promise. I love you Dad” She said.

“I love you too, Cub” He said. Artemis took a deep breath and walked towards the train, she climbed onto the carriage. Remus stared after his daughter, he was already missing her.

  Artemis walked down the train, peering into each compartment. She finally found one, at the back of the train, that was nearly empty. The only person sitting in the compartment was a small boy. He was staring out the window at the families that were all chatting away to one and another. The boy ad dark black hair and pale skin, his clothes were baggy and look several sizes too big for him. Artemis knew what this felt like, her father couldn’t always get or hold a good job, so she was left with having hand me down clothes. The only different was that Artemis has magic to repair, clean and downsize the clothes. She raised her hand and knocked quietly on the door. The boy jumped and turned around, Artemis was met with bright green eyes. She slid the door open and stepped in.

“Can I sit in here?” She asked. The boy nodded and Artemis sat down in the seat opposite him. Silence came over the compartment as both occupants stared out the window. Artemis scanned the crowd, looking for her father’s light brown hair and tired face. She smiled a little as she glanced over at the boy, his face was full of longing as he looked towards a red haired family, who were hugging each other goodbye. “I’m Artemis, Artemis Lupin”

“Harry, Harry Potter” He said, dragging his eyes away from the family and into the compartment. Artemis’s eyes lit up and she smiled widely.

“Really?” She asked. The boy nodded, looking slightly embarrassed. “Sorry…my father asked me to look out for you. I’ve heard so many stories about you and your father” Harry’s eyes lit up.

“You knew my father?” He asked.

“Well no, but my father did. He and James were best friends when they went to Hogwarts, along with Peter Pettigrew and…Sirius Black. They called themselves the Marauders and were pranksters” Artemis said. Harry’s eyes were bright and he looked more alive than he did before.

“Did he know my mother?” Harry asked.

“Yeah! Remus and Lily were head boy and girl together. They did rounds and had to work together a lot. Remus said Lily was the kindest person, he knew”

“Why wasn’t my dad head boy?” Harry asked.

“He was originally meant to be, but James didn’t want the responsibility and recommended my father, because he deserved it more” Artemis explained. Harry smiled at the thought of his father letting this opportunity go to one of his best friends. Suddenly the door slammed open and a red haired boy walked in.

“Hey Harry, sorry I took so long. I was caught up in a lecture from Percy about behaviour. Who’s this?” Ron asked glaring at the girl that was sitting in his spot.

“Um…Ron, this is Artemis…Artemis this is Ron. Her father was best friends with my dad” Harry said happily. Ron scowled.

“Right…” He said, as he slumped into a seat next to Harry. Artemis opened her rucksack that was sitting next to her and pulled out a few books.

“My dad, told me that it was good to be prepared, have you read any of the school books yet?” Artemis asked. Harry shook his head.

“Why would you do that? We’re gonna learn it anyway in the classes” Ron snapped, glaring at Artemis.

“Because, if you’ve already read it, it will give you a better understanding of what the teachers are going to go through. You don’t have to do it, I’m not gonna force you.” Artemis said, she looked over at Harry. “I’m not going to force you either.”

“What books do you have?” Harry inquired.

“Uh…Magical Potions and Drafts, The Standard Books of Spells and Powell’s: A Guide to all Potion Ingredients. It’s not on the list, but it does give you a lot of information on how the ingredients react and stuff” She listed.

“What do you suggested?” Harry asked, unsure of what to choose.

“Probably, Potion Ingredients. The potions teacher is apparently a nightmare”

“According to my brother, Snape is a twit. He favours Slytherin’s and take points off Gryffindor just for breathing” Ron butted in.

“Exactly. So it’s best to be prepared.” Artemis said as she held out the book, which Harry took. The two of them settled down to read, while Ron stared off into the distant. He sighed and stood up, he climbed up onto the seat and opened his trunk, he smiled as he picked out a book. It was Quidditch Through the Ages. He sat down and silence once again took over the compartment.

 It didn’t last though, as a few minutes later, the door slid back and a boy and girl stood there, the girl already had her school robes on.

“Has anyone seen a toad, Neville’s lost one” The girl asked, she had a bossy sort of voice, lots of bushy brown hair and large front teeth. The three students in the compartment shook their heads and the boy cried out before running off, the girl didn’t go after him and instead she sighed and walked into the compartment, sitting down. “What are you reading?” She demanded. Harry showed her the cover of his book. “That’s not on the supply list” She exclaimed, like it was a crime. “I’m Hermione Granger, and you are?”

“Ron Weasley”

“Artemis Lupin”

“Harry Potter”

“Are you really?” Hermione exclaimed her eyes wide with excitement. “I’ve read all about you…I got a few extra books, for background reading and you’re in Modern Magical History and The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and Great Wizarding Events of the Twentieth Century.”

“Am I?” said Harry feeling dazed.

“Goodness, didn’t you know?” I have found out everything I could if it were me” Hermione said, accusingly.

“Why?” Artemis asked. The other three students turned to her. “Why would you? If you were Harry you would have known what your life was really like, why pay attention to people’s speculation?

“Because he would want to find out about what happened that night and why he survived instead of dying, like his parents. Anyway, do any of you know what house you’ll be in? I’ve been asking around and I hope I’m in Gryffindor, it sounds by far the best; I hear Dumbledore himself was in it, but I suppose Ravenclaw wouldn’t be too bad, Anyway, we’d better go look for Neville’s toad. You three had better change, you know, I expect we’ll be there soon”

And with that she left.

“Whatever house I’m in, I hope she’s not in it” said Ron. “It was like she was telling you off mate, for not reading about yourself” Harry shrugged.

“What house are your brothers in?” Harry asked.

“Gryffindor,” Ron said. Gloom seemed to be settling on him again. “Mom and Dad were in it too. I don’t know what they’ll said if I’m not. I don’t suppose Ravenclaw would be too bad, but imagine if they put me in Slytherin” Ron said shuddering with horror.

“What house do you want to be in anyway?” Artemis asked.

“Gryffindor” Ron said. “Harry, what about you?”

“I don’t know; my parents were in Gryffindor. Artemis?” Harry said turning to her.

“Ravenclaw, my mother was in Ravenclaw, so I would like to follow in her footsteps.” Artemis said. “But Gryffindor would be cool”

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.

This is gr...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
