Chapter 1: The Way To School

(Alice's POV)

“Wake up! Wake up, Alice!”

“Ugh, Avery, get off of me!” Every single morning since those stupid letters showed up, she bounces on my bed, and in the process, ME, to tell me it's morning. Apparently, I'm special. Why? Because she never does this to Artemis. EVER. So, in response (like every other day), I ask her, “is today the day we get on the train, Avery?”

Now, normally she just sulks and says no, then I throw her off my bed. Strangely she remembered her legs worked before I had the chance to chuck a pillow at her head and she began screeching, “yes, yes, YES!!” (at the top of her lungs like always. Sometimes I wonder if she has an indoor voice...) That little stunt was quickly followed by her running for her life cause she woke up the Book Monster, our other sister, Artemis. She hates that name but when her head is planted so far in a book she growls at people who try to talk to her, she got stuck with it.

While they in they are in their own world, I got up and went to my midnight blue and black dresser and grabbed some skinny jeans and a T-shirt. As I exited our fairly large room, I walked straight into Dad. He looked somewhat weary from last night, seeing as it was the first full moon of the month. Allow me to explain why the full moon is so important to my family (and explain my family while I'm at it).

First things first, my name is Alice Victoria Lupin. That's right, my father is Remus Lupin, which should explain the full moon thingy, but if not, my dad's a werewolf. We're kinda surprised none of us got the gene, honestly. I'm the oldest of three, though I'm only older by two minutes; Artemis Viridian Lupin is the second oldest, then Avery Veronica Lupin is the youngest. Technically, we are all the same age, but I count the minutes and I like being the oldest. Yep, we are triplets, and identical at that, which sucks sometimes, but when we pull pranks, it's awesome! So, onward with my morning!

“Good morning, Alice. Ready for your first day of Hogwarts?”

“If it means not having Avery jumping on me every day, I say BRING IT ON!”

“All right, then,” he said, chuckling as he walked away.

The rest of the morning was fairly boring; just breakfast as normal, with Artemis trying to smack Avery with her book, then we had to round up our trunks, and then we were on our way to King's Cross station and platform 9 ¾!

(Artemis' POV)

We were early to the train so we got on, found an empty compartment (which wasn't hard), then Avery went back out to the platform after Dad left and ran around since she knew she wouldn't be able to run on a moving train. As usual, I retrieved my books from my bag and began reading while Alice, being the music-lover she is, plugged her earbuds into her phone and tuned out the world. I shook my head at their antics, knowing how Alice would be without her music (since her phone wouldn't work around the amount of magic at Hogwarts) and how Avery would be once we got there (she has endless amounts of energy) and began rereading “Hogwarts, a History.”

Before long, Avery came back in due to the amount of people on her “running track,” as she calls it. About ½ an hour later, the train started moving. I put my book away because I get motion-sickness very easily when Alice said, “I'm bored. Do you guys want to go do something?” I refused, as I wasn't fond of people outside my family. The energy ball that is our sister started bouncing in her seat at the thought of other people. Alice opened the door and out shot Avery, already down the aisle when Alice barely had a foot out the door. She then set off to make more friends, as is her way. I decided on a short nap until they returned.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

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. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
