Electra and Hadrian Potter and the Balance of Magic

By Karianne Marie Jacobia

Other / Romance

Chapter 1

Lord James Charlus Potter was in the waiting room of St. Mungo's. His wonderful wife, Lady Elizabeth Artemis Pandora-Potter, was in the emergency room giving birth to his twin son and daughter. Healer Michelle Johnson came out to Lord Potter and said, "Lord Potter, Your wife gave birth to a healthy baby boy and girl, but I'm sorry to say that she didn't make it. I'm sorry for your loss."

"Healer Johnson did she name them?" James asked.

"Yes, she named the boy Hadrian Apollo Potter and the girl Electra Psyche Pandora-Potter. Would you like to see them?" asked Healer Johnson

"Yes," whispered James.

When he saw Hadrian and Electra, he saw a boy with the beginnings of inky black hair and dark purple eyes, and a girl with the beginnings of blue-black hair and light purple eyes that would someday be called amethyst.

" They are perfect."James whispered.

Two weeks passed and Lady Elizabeth Artemis Pandora-Potter was buried in the Potter family cemetery. A month later, Electra and Hadrian had a new step-mother her name is Lily. Lily treated them well, until 9 months passed and she had her son, Michael. When Lily found out that Hadrian and Electra weren't fully human, she started to treat them like dirt. Lily had found out that the late Lady Potter was a veela and siren mix and so were her children. James did nothing to protect them. He couldn't even look at Electra because she looked too much like Elizabeth.

Hadrian was always looking out for Electra. She was after all the younger of the twins. The house elves took care of Electra and Hadrian all the time because Lily hated them. Electra and Hadrian were magical twins meaning that they could hear each other's thoughts and feel each other's emotions.

One day, Lily was being especially cruel to the twins and wouldn't let Electra near Hadrian. Electra was crying out "Harry," for the next two hours. That day Electra had her first burst of accidental magic. She summoned Hadrian's crib with Hadrian in it and levitated herself to be right next to him.

Hadrian cried out "Electra."

At the same time, Electra cried out "Harry," in joy.

Whenever Electra tried to play with Michael, Lily would shrilly scream, " You little monster don't you dare touch my baby."

Electra would always whimper, " Baby brother."

Lily would glare and scream, " You are not to touch my baby, you little monster. If you do you can say bye-bye to Harry." Electra would always go to bed after that. Electra and Hadrian would not be happy for a very long time.
