When the train stopped at the station then Hermione saw her Aunt Kelly standing there. Hermione gave her a slight wave and hurried Abby along.
Abby made sure to have her wand on her at all times. Spelling anyone who came in the way of messing up her plans, especially the people in Hermione’s family.
“This is my sister Abby,” said Hermione to her Aunt.
“Yea, I know who she is. Your mother had been talking about her,” said Kelly smiling at Abby.
“Nice to meet you Kelly,” said Abby shyly.
“Nice to meet you too darling," said Kelly giving Abby a hug.
Kelly led Hermione and Abby out of the train station and saw her aunt's blue pick-up truck. Abby got in first and Hermione locked the door next to her.
“Mione, what’s that necklace?” asked Kelly.
“Oh, it was an early Christmas present from…a friend,” said Hermione blushing.
“What are we doing for Christmas?” asked Abby.
“We usually have a party, but I don’t know about this year,” said Kelly.
“Why aren’t we having a party?” asked Hermione hurt.
“Who is all going to come? Kru is gone and no one has seen Fuzz since Kru’s funeral”
“What would happen if we could get some people? Me and Abby know people from school who might want to come"
“Ok, let me know by tonight who you got to come and maybe”
Hermione sat in the truck trying to think of who will all come. Hermione could think of a lot, but only one stuck out in her mind. It was Freddy! Hermione felt the locket and looked out the window. She didn’t notice Abby staring at her.
When they got home Hermione led Abby up to the room. Abby thought it was cute. It had purple on the walls and a lot of pictures. Pictures of Hermione, Harry, and Ron having fun. Then what really caught her eye was Hermione sitting on a four wheeler with a really cute boy holding onto her.
“Mione, who is this?” asked Abby pointing to the picture.
Hermione was on her bed with a piece of parchment. She thought for a minute before answering. It was still painful.
“That’s our brother Kru. He was killed a couple months ago by a vampire. Who do you want to invite to the party if we have one?”
Abby sat on the bed next to Hermione and thought for a long moment. She and Draco had been seeing each other since Hermione and Freddy had been going out. They hadn’t told anybody because she didn’t know how her father or any one else would react. For all they knew she was Hermione’s long lost twin sister.
“Would it be possible to invite Draco Malfoy?” asked Abby not looking at Hermione
“What you like him?” said Hermione teasingly.
Hermione wrote on top of the piece of parchment People for our party. She tried to think of anyone other than Freddy to invite. He probably had plans hanging out with Rafael.
“I’ll invite him,” said Hermione.
1.) Draco Malfoy
“How about Amelia?” asked Abby.
“No,” said Hermione quickly.
Abby couldn’t think of anyone else. She really liked hanging around Hermione. She was really funny, and pretty smart. Hermione was a person she could talk to and a person she would be friends with if Abby wasn’t pretending to be her sister.
“What do you think about Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley?” asked Hermione.
“I don’t have a problem with them”
2.) Harry Potter
3.) Ronald Weasley
Hermione sat there laughing with Abby and she was actually having fun. Without Abby being there she had thought the holidays was going to be a complete disaster. ‘My sister is not bad. I’ll keep her’ thought Hermione with a smile.
“How about Freddy?” asked Abby looking at the list.
“I don’t know if he would like to come,” answered Hermione.
“Come on. He is crazy about you”
Hermione bit her lip and ran her fingers through her hair. It was true that he was crazy about her, but they had just started going out. Was it a little soon to invite him to the house for a party her mother was throwing?
4.) Freddy Michaels
“How do you like Ashley and Rafael?” asked Hermione.
“Rafael totally funny. Ashley a little soft spoken, but a nice girl”
5.) Rafael Vontay
6.) Ashley Vontay
“How about Ginny Weasley?” asked Hermione.
“That’s cool. I don’t really know her that well, but I know that she is a good friend of yours”
7.) Ginny Weasley
“Mione do you think it is weird that you are going to have all of your ex boyfriends at this party?” asked Abby.
“Not at all. They are still my friends, even though we are not going out. Besides, one of my ex’s are not going to be there,” said Hermione shrugging.
“Who might that be?”
Abby looked wide eyed at Hermione. Abby had secretly a secret crush on Viktor Krum for a long time. He was famous, who didn’t like him?
“Are you lying to me?” asked Abby.
“Nope, we met at the Yule Ball a couple years back. Enough about me, what about you? Where do you live?”
“Oh, well my parents were killed when I was really young and I was adopted. Well, you know that, but I was adopted again”
“Abby I am very sorry”
Abby looked as if she was going to cry. Hermione sat up and held her sister close. Abby rapped her arms around Hermione and began to cry. She didn’t know what had come over her. Abby had never cried over this before, but she had been crying a lot since her father didn’t even want her.
“The person who I have been raised by doesn’t love me. He wishes that he had never taken me in”
“Did he tell you that?” asked Hermione petting Abby’s hair down.
“No. I heard him tell a family friend. Why would he say that Mione? Doesn’t he love me?”
“Yes of course he loves you. Why wouldn’t he?”
“I don’t know. We just let some family friends move in with us. Of course they are boys and my daddy thinks that they are more important to him than me”
“Lets have this party and we will talk more about this later Abby ok?”
Abby nodded and they went downstairs to tell Kelly that they had a list of people to invite.
