The Forgotten Twin

By Zex

Fantasy

Prologue

[October 31, 1980] [Hogwarts, Scotland]

“Oh, my…” muttered sorrowfully from Professor McGonagall’s lips as she tried to hold back her tears. Hagrid, the half-giant, wasn’t as considerate.

“I…I’m so sorry!!” Hagrid said as he continues to wipe what looks like never ending tears, never moving from his spot in the middle of their headmaster’s office.

It had only been a couple of minutes since Hagrid delivered the dreadful news but to them the silence seemed like it has been hours. The small group of four that had gathered in Dumbledore’s office having just finished a discussion on moving the Potters before the Dark Lord found out of their address, had ironically been just told of the tragic news of their deaths by a weeping half-giant holding a baby. Needless to say, it was the most inconsolable failure that they had ever had, more so to Hagrid.

“And the other…?” asked the Headmaster after those few minutes of mournful silence. Professor Snape looked up expectantly to the half-giant. Hagrid, if possible, only wept more.

“I-I… I lost him.”

“…”

“…”

“…”

Understandably, no words were needed to be said after.

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?

Dinzy: It was a good read. I love stories on fantasy and this story kept me hooked on it. If you like the genre fantasy this is a good story to read.

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.
