The sun was shining on 4 Privet Drive, and Petunia Dursley was

shreiking with rage. Dudley ran out with his now thinner legs,s due to the

everlasting diet of Petunia's, and stomped his way downstairs, as he realized

there would be no Punchbag Harry for him for the rest of the summer.


The same sun was shining on 136 and 152 Marina Court at Godric's

Hollow, and at the same time, 7:34 to be exact, Cassandra Nicole LeAnge and

Harry Potter woke up from their sleep, both yawning and eating breakfast.

Cassandra ate a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (A/N: favorite cereal.

Don't you agree, Miss Owner who Pays for The Domain Name? lolz...), while Harry

had a bagel and orange juice.

At the same time as well, they got dressed, and set off for London, and

to the Leaky Cauldron. When Sirius and Harry arrived, Crystal and Cassandra did

as well. They all walked the same way, but not together. They then went through

the Leaky Cauldron, and when they least expected it, Hagrid appeared.

"Woi, 'ello there Harry. I see that Dumbledore let yeh stay with Sirius

there. And, oh! 'ello there little lady! What yer name be?" Harry nodded as a

yes to Hagrid, and then noticed Cassandra. Cassandra then locked eyes with

Harry, and noticed his scar.

"Benit mere de le seigneur! I mean, Holy mother of the lord! You're

Harry Potter!" Harry had expected this, but jumped as she spoke in two

different languages.


"Why y-y-yes I am. You are...?" Harry said, his

inquisitive sage eyes peering into her very soul, or at least Cassandra thought.

"OH! My name is Cassandra Nicole LeAnge, but you can just call me

Cassie!" She squinted her eyes, smiled, and waved, therefore scaring Harry,

Sirius, and Hagrid to death.


"Cassandra, stop it this moment! Oh, by the way,

I'm Crystal LeAnge, and you are...?" She said, talking to both Siruis and


"Oh yes, I haven't introduced meself. Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and

Grounds at Hogwarts. And this here-" Hagrid was then interrupted by Sirius

cutting through. "Sirius Black, god-father to Harry Potter. Nice to meet you,

Madame LeAnge and Mademoiselle LeAnge. You both live up to your last name..."

Crystal and Cassie both blushed, and stuttered their thank yous and started


"Sirius, what did you mean by living up to their last name? Do you

know...what ever language they speak? Is it French? Like, Beauxbatons?"


Sirius smiled and muttered one word, "Exactly." Harry whispered an "oh" and went off

to talk with Hagrid, assuming that Sirius was now dumbstruck in love with


"Hagrid, what does Sirius mean by 'living up to their last name'?"

Harry asked. Hagrid then pondered for a bit, sighed, then got it, and started

chuckling, saying how Sirius was 'such a sly dog'.


"HAGRID! HE IS A DOG! Remember? Animagus ring a bell?"


Hagrid came back to reality, and started to talk to Harry. "Oh yes...well, Harry, Sirius knows

French. In fact, he just complimented the two by saying their last names fit them perfectly. LeAnge means The Angel, in French that is... like Madame Maxime..."


In Parsailles, France, Jonas recieved his letter.

'Dearest Cassandra,

I have the greatest news! I am going to go to Hogwarts!

But, not till the middle of the year. I cannot wait to see you. I also have a

present for you, but Xander will have to bring it because Cordelia is probably

too tired, so she will just deliver this letter. (A/N: hehe...Xander and

Cordelia...if you watch Buffy, you will Cannot wait to see


Love, Jonas'

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*BACK AT THE LEAKY CAULDRON*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Harry rolled his eyes when Hagrid started to just murmur Maxime's name.


"Okay, Hagrid, I think I get the point." As soon as he said this, a girl with brown

hair walked up, and tapped Harry on the shoulder. He turned around and

saw...Hermione, with her hair in a braid, with braces!


"Hermione...what happened ter yeh? Did yer parents wrassle yer into their office er sumtin?"

Hermione laughed sarcastically, and smiled, showing off her braceface, her

metal mouth, her tin grin, okay, you get the point. Harry smirked, and before

he could say anything, she hit him on the back of the head to shut him up.

"Come on, guys! Let's go get our school supplies!"
