Chapter 1

August 10

Dear Diary,

Today was uneventful and boring. I can't see my muggle friend Tanya, and I Only see her on school holidays now. I can't go outside and practice my quidditch in the abandoned field a little ways from my house, even though I want to make the Gryffindor quidditch team really badly. Dad said he would practice with me when we come of hiding. Dad can't stand staying put much more than I can. Mum on the other hand seems perfectly content staying inside. She hates large crowds and says that as long as her family is safe, she's happy. Oh. And Nymphadora. She's only 11 months old. All she's really ever known is hiding. Tomorrow is her first birthday. Maybe our fate will be different. Maybe by some birthday magic we'll be out of this mess and I could show her how quidditch works.

Veronica sighed. She knew there was very little chance of birthday magic. After all, there was no news of were Acluzor was and birthdays could not hold wands. But she knew some people had a knack for having things happen on their birthday.

Well it's 9:32 at night and Mum is calling for me.

Best Wishes,

Veronica-Ann Potter

" Veronica!" Veronica's Mum yelled. " Come here please"

" Yes Mum!" Veronica replied. She hoped she wasn't in trouble.

" Did you brush your teeth?"

" Yes. And I took my shower, cleaned that picture of Uncle Ted and Aunt Victoire, and put Nymphadora to sleep."

"Be sure to brush your hair, Darling". Veronica's Mum said. "When your done. have a good night's sleep. I love you"

" I love you too Mum". With that, Veronica went upstairs and into the bathroom.

She took her brush and started to untangle the mess of silky black hair. When her hair was complete, Veronica braided it, and tied it off with a yellow scrunchie to match her nightgown. Veronica sighed. Her parents didn't like it when she wore night gowns, what of she needed to make a quick escape. And if nothing had happened at this point, nothing was ever going to happen. But she decided better safe than sorry, so she changed into a pale pink tank top and some Holyhead Harpies pajama pants. She looked at her face. She had her father's face, but her mother's dark skin and Indian eyes.

After she was done brushing her waist length hair, Veronica walked into her room. It was painted red and had Gryffindor banners and quidditch posters all over. Next to Veronica's bed, was a white wooden crib with a magic mobile that has stars, moons, wands, and brooms zooming around a pole. This was Nymphadora's bed of course. Nymphadora had her own room, but with the unsteady circumstances, she had to sleep right next to Veronica in case of attack. Veronica sighed. She felt so sorry for her sister. But, since Veronica could do nothing about it, she drifted of to a nice, dreamless sleep.

BANG BANG BANG THUMP! A strange noise woke Veronica. Her blood ran cold. Ohno. Veronica thought. He's found us. Then she fast as lightning, ran to the far side of her room. A million different things flurried though her head at once, but she knew she had just seconds to get her and Nymphadora OUT before he came upstairs. Finally, Veronica found the baby basket that held the Moleskin skins that held essential items such as money. Quicker than ever, Veronica gently, but swiftly, placed Nymphadora in the basket. When she was done, Veronica opened the window, climbed down the huge tree, and started running. She was glad she had changed out of the nightgown, but that wasn't on Veronica's mind.

Veronica was at least a mile away from home when Nymphadora woke up. (She had her favorite doll in a tight embrace when she was put in)She screamed and cried and damaged an explanation in her baby babble, but Veronica shushed her, in till they got to a park a good 5 miles away. Tired from all that running Veronica collapsed. And tired from screaming, Nymphadora fell asleep too.

Dinzy: I actually liked it although I did not find it fit to be a horror story at all. It was a lot more mystery and fantasy than horror but it was very interesting and a good read.

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...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Catherine Kopf: This novel is a very interesting piece of young adult fiction, with a lot going behind it. At first glance, one appears to get a "Twilight" feel from hearing it's about werewolves and vampires, but this story is unique and isn't like that. One thing that I really enjoyed was the fact that it to...

missinlucky004: One of the best reads I've had in a long time. It was attention grabbing from the front cover until it ended. I sure hope this is the first in a series, either way though, it was a delightful read! I will definitely recommend to friends, and I'll be checking out other books by this author.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
