Sarah Potter: Sunshine Starts Hogwarts

By Samantha Nolen

Other / Fantasy

Chapter 1

"Mommy where are we going?" a young Albus Severus Potter asks as their family of five was driving through London. "We are going to an orphanage Albus." His mother, Ginny Potter says turning around in the passenger seat to look at her two sons and one daughter, she couldn't have any more children since Lilies birth had caused complications for her but she knew that there was something missing to tie her already amazing family together.

"Alright, gang we're here." The father Harry Potter says turning to car off, "James would you mind unstrapping Lily." James the oldest of the three nods and does as he is told as Albus takes himself out he gets out and rushes to his dad's side, James takes hold of his mom's hand as she carries the two-year-old Lily in her other. The family walks in and is greeted by an elder woman, "Welcome to Sunshine Orphanage, home of Wizard and Witch orphans, what kind of child are you looking for today?" Harry smiles, "We are looking for a child around four years old, a girl is preferred."

The woman smiles at him, "Right this way, we only have one that matches that criteria, but I'm sure you will love her, we don't know her real name, she was found on our front step, we named her Sarah, she's rather shy so I ask only one goes in." they reach a door with four names, one reads Sarah. Harry volunteers himself to go in first.

He walks in and smiles as he spots the four-year-old girl reading a rather large book, "Hello." He says accidentally startling the girl, "Don't be afraid, I came with the rest of my family today, and we have been looking for a little one just like you to add to our family." The girls face grows into a large smile, Harry took the time to look her over, she had waist-length brown hair that fall down in waves, she looked like the smart type but she also looked athletic, maybe she would play quidditch at Hogwarts.

"Would you like to meet the others?" Harry asks, the girl nods and he goes up to the door motioning for the rest of the family to come in, he introduces them as they appear, "Sarah, this is Ginny my wife, James our oldest, Albus our middle child and Lily our youngest, how would you like to join our family." She looks up into Harry's green eyes and says, "I would love that!" and she wraps her arms around Harry's neck hugging him tight.

Ginny goes and gets the old lady as Albus and Sarah introduce themselves, "I'm Albus but everyone calls me Al." he says sticking his hand out, Sarah smiles at him "I'm Sarah, I don't have a nickname, but maybe you can give me one." Ginny and the woman return and hands Harry the papers and a nice large bag with the name Sarah on it for her stuff, "Why don't you pack with Sarah Al while your mom and I fill these papers out, Sarah, can we give you a middle name as well?" She nods as her and Al packed up a bunch of books and notebooks and a couple pair of clothes and a pair of shoes.

Harry and Ginny finish signing the papers and hand them back to the orphanage owner, "Here you are everything should be correct." Harry turns towards the little girl he just signed papers for, he smiles, "Welcome to the family Sarah Nicole Potter." He says grabbing her for a hug.

When they get home Sarah was excited, "You will be sleeping with Lily in your own bed we have set up for you, but we usually don't stay in our room unless grounded or asleep, the kids usually play on their toy brooms, which we will get you for your birthday, which we have made so you and Albus have the same." Harry says as they enter the house, she gripped his hand tight looking around the large room that was the living area.

It held a large television and many chairs to sit in, "We have a large family, so we need lots of seats." Harry says leading her upstairs, he opens the door to her room, "I hope you like it." He says showing her the bed. She smiles and looks at him "It's perfect I love it." Harry was disappointed that she hadn't called him dad yet, but knew it would be a while for her to get used to having a family, he remembered how it was when he first meet the Weasley's.

After the house tour, Harry takes Sarah outside to join Albus and James who were playing in the sandbox, "I'll come get you when dinner is nearly ready so you can get cleaned up." Harry as Ginny walks out with Lily and sits down on the porch, Sarah turns towards her new brothers, she was finally part of a family, she had a mom and a dad now and siblings as well, she couldn't be happier, she grabbed the bucket and starts playing finally happy.

After a nice dinner of roast and mashed potatoes all the kids are taken to bed, Sarah and Lily first, Sarah, for the first time, is tucked in by not one, but two people, who tuck her in nice and tight and kiss her on the forehead, "Goodnight Sarah, welcome to the family." Harry whispers as they go to stand he hears the soft tired whisper of, "Good night mom and daddy." Making his heart soar with glee, she was his daughter, a girl just like him, and she was now his daughter.
