An Elf Becomes A Wizard - Part 1
"Lets face it were lost," mumbled Draco Malfoy, a student that will soon be attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
"Its no wonder the owl never returned with the girls reply," added Lucius Malfoy, the father of Draco.
Headmistress Minerva McGonagall asked, "What's her name again?" "Anais Evenstar." answered Headmaster Albus Dumbledore.
"Where's Professor Snape and Professor Quirrell?" asked Draco. Panic began to spread over the group.
Meanwhile Professor Satero Quirrell and Professor Severus Snape were not far away. Stopping to catch their breath, they heard footsteps, but these were no ordinary footsteps. They were deep and made the ground shake. The Professors quickly hid behind a tree, but that did them no good. Two monstrous, deformed creatures leaped at them. With little effort one held Quirrell to the ground, its large hands wrapped tightly around his neck. His face grew pale and him body fell limp. Professor Snape reached for his wand, but when the other creature slapped him across the face causing Snape's wand to fall to the ground, which the monster picked up curiously, but in an instant Snape heard a spell being cast. "Accio wand!" It was a ladies voice, but not Professor McGonagall`s, it was one he had never heard before.
Snape's wand flew from the creatures hand to hers. The creature suddenly got of Quirrell and ran off with the other. Snape just stared at her fully taking in her appearance. She was wearing a mint green dress that fell loosely to the ground and a forest green cloak the same length. Her hair was of chestnut and fell to her shoulders shimmering.
"Are you hurt?" she asked approaching Snape.
"No, I'm fine. My name is Professor Severus Snape."
The young lady smiled, "Anais Evenstar," She held out Snape's wand out to him. Not knowing why, he was quite surprised by her action. Seeing he did not fully trust her Anais slipped her own wand into the inside pocket of her cloak.
"Its alright I'm unarmed." She assured him. Snape took his wand and replaced it inside his black robes. Remembering Quirrell, Snape ran to him.
"Who is he?" asked Anais, recognizing the look of concern in Snape's dark eyes. She had seen it many times in the past. "He is Professor Satero Quirrell, a college of mine."
Snape and Anais knelt on either side of Quirrell, who laid flat on his stomach. Some of the color left Snape face as he said, "I don't think he's breathing."
Anais looked in Snape's frightened eyes. "Help me flip him over." Snape obeyed. Anais laid her hand upon Quirrell's throat. "Silivern penna miriel o menel agar elenath." Quirrell gave a slight gasp as life returned to him.
"How'd you do that?" asked Snape.
"Its Elven magic." said Anais as Quirrell managed to open his eyes. He found himself staring into Anais's glittering eyes.
"Do you feel alright?" Snape asked. "Miss Evenstar saved you." Quirrell managed to sit up (with Snapes help).
"W-w-what was t-that thing?" stuttered Quirrell.
Slowly Anais answered, "They are the Uruk-hai. Many roam Middle Earth. How they came to be I will not say, but you must be careful for they don't know pain nor fear."
Snape asked, "If they don't know fear, then why did they run away when they saw you?"
Anais shrugged, "I do not know. For it is my friends and family they are after. I was certain they would kill me too."
Snape was confused, "Why would they want to kill your family and friends?"
Anais began to walk away. "I must take my leave. I've already said too much."
Suddenly Draco, Lucius, and Professors Dumbledore and McGonagall came rushing through the trees wands ready (except Draco for he had not learned any magic yet).
"Are you two alright?" asked Professor McGonagall, seeing Quirrells pale white face and Snapes face that had a thin gash with blood trickling from it.
"E-e-everythings under c-c-control Headmistress" stuttered Quirrell nervously.
Anais giggled, "Yeah thanks to me." The others looked curiously at her.
Snape snickered, "She's right is it wasn't for her we'd be dead." Snape told them how they were attacked by the Uruk-hai and how one had taken Snape's wand and the other had strangled Quirrell. The ones who had not witnessed it were astonished the young lady had saved them and also that she was the one they were in search of. Anais had learn alone more spells and enchantments then most third years being taught.
Again they heard rustling in the trees. Thinking it was another Uruk-hai they drew out their wands, but it wasn't a Uruk-hai it was an elf (but only Anais knew this. The others knew only of small, grubby house elves). He wore all green, like Anais, and also had long strait hair like her, only blonde.
"Anais where have you been? Your father has been worried sick!" The Elf tried to take her by the arm, but she pulled away.
"Tell me something I don't know, Legolas!" Anais snapped.
"You know your not allowed out of Rivendell! Not after you snuck off to Diaron Ali to get some silly spell books and a cauldron." Legolas stepped forward.
"Its Diagon Alley and there not silly books. There my school supplies for Hogwarts!" Anais said calmly.
"Your not going!" Legolas tried to take her by the arm again, but Snape pulled her behind him.
"And whose going to stop her? You?" said Snape coldly.
"Who are you?" asked Legolas.
"I am Professor Severus Snape. I will be Miss Evenstar's Potions Master at Hogwarts."
Legolas leaned against a tree and looked at Anais. "Does this mean your not coming back to Rivendell at all?"
Anais sighed, "I have to go back. I cannot leave without telling Arwen good-bye. Plus I must get Kewina and my school books."
Draco looked at her puzzled, "Arwen? Kewina?"
Anais walked over to Draco (still keeping an eye on Legolas), " Arwen is my older sister and Kewina is my kitten."
Legolas shook his head. "Your father won't like you leaving. Besides what if something is to happen to Lady Arwen? If she dies your to marry Lord Aragorn and become Queen of Gondor...."
Anais interrupted, "Gondor! The world of men! Pure men are weak and you know it, Legolas! I will never help protect them if it means I'm to marry Aragorn. I do love him with all my heart, but not as my sister does. I am only 11, an infant compared to you and Arwen. Remember, my cousin, I am an Elvish child. I have to much too live up to as it is. Everyone expects so much of me being a daughter of Elrond, Arwen's sister, Lady Galadriel's great granddaughter, Tranduil's niece.." She looked over to Professor Snape and her new friends and added, "And now I am to become a witch. That will be the only thing I`ll have truly to myself. Besides I don`t even live with my father in Rivendell. I live with Lord Celeborn in Lothlorien. If anyone should not like me going it should be Celeborn! Still I know he will not stopped me!"
Professor McGonagall put a hand on her shoulder to calm her, "Lets go to your sister."
