Lost Twin

By PepperminPatti

Action / Fantasy

Chapter 1

Nora Waters lay on her bed in her room on a very hot July day. All her friends were on Vacation, her favorite T.V. show had been canceled, and the air conditioning was on the fritz . One minute it would blow out boiling air, and the next freezing air. The only thing to look forward to was that it was July 15th, only 16 days away from her 11th birthday. Nora day dreamed about how her birthday would go. She would go downstairs and open her presents, and she would get everything she wanted. Then the cake... Nora's dreams were interrupted by her mum knocking on the door.

" Who is it?" Nora asked

" I have something important I need to share with you". Nora's Mum called. Nora went to at once. Hopefully the air conditioning repair man was there and the house wouldn't be ten thousand degrees. But a much different matter waiting outside the door. " Nora Dear," Nora's mum started, " I'm not sure how to explain it to you, but, well, you're a Witch." Nora felt as if she had been slapped on the face. Why would her mum insult her? " No I'm not insulting you, just look at this parchment". But never got to explain more, for Nora grabbed the parchment and read it. Here's how it looked to Nora at the time:

Dear, blablablabla

Blablablablabla Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.(the rest is Blablabla)

Nora apologized immediately.

"Sorry Mum I thought you were insulting me..

" I forgive you, but I am not pleased with you for ripping the letter out of my hands. You know better than that."

"Sorry Mum."

" Apology excepted, now there was another page in envelope with all of the supplies that you need and where to get them. I happen to like this page of the letter, it makes me feel proud, so I'll have this half and you have the list page alright pumpkin?"

" Alright Mum." Some parents are obsessed with having their kids be healthy and only eat/do healthy tings. Nora's parents were obsessive about sharing and compromise. For example, Nora was not allowed to go into her parents bedroom. In exchange, they did not go into Nora's room. So wanting to keep the first half of the letter was more disappointed and confusing than unexpected and/or surprising.

" Thank you Nora. Now it says that we have to reply back, but there is no return address, so how do we do this?" Then an owl swooped in. "Oh yes! I forgot! It said on the letter we use owl post! I think it's like homing pigeons so if I attach this right here-" Nora's mum attached a letter to the owl's leg. "Then it should fly off. Oh there it goes!"

Nora ran to the window and watched the owl fly off. She felt ready to join this new world she had discovered she was a part of.

" Mum, when do I go to this school?"

" On September 1st, 48 days away."

Alright then. Nora thought.48 days and I will discover what it means to be a nice Witch.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

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...
