My name is Ruby.

For those don't know, including myself, my brother is Harry Potter, he's my twin (unfortunately).

I didn't know until today.

Remus told me. I live with my "Uncle", Remus Lupin, he's my godfather.

Also, I have long, dark, black hair and bright green eyes, identical to my brother some would say.

So I should tell you about how I found out about my twin brother instead of blabbing about myself...

It all started this morning, I had just gotten up to eat breakfast.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I woke up with the sun peaking through my old, thin, grey curtains, and the birds singing a happy tune. Which really aggravates me, because I'm generally not a happy person. However, today was different.

I throw my dark blue covers off my bare legs and slide out of my small bed, pushed in the corner of my small room.

I'm not usually a morning person, but today was an exception.

I felt good today, I don't know why, but I just do.

I hobble down the stairs, the old, cracking, wood floor cold on my bare feet, and go to make some toast in the kitchen.

As soon as my toast pops out of the toaster, my Uncle Remus bounds down the stairs with his usual old, worn robes fitted nicely to his tall, aging figure.

"Good Morning Rue, how does it feel to be 13?" Uncle Lupin asks with a goofy smile on his face.

I knew there was something particularly good about today.

"Holy mother of Merlin! I totally forgot about my birthday!" I yell, my eyes wide in realization.

Today is July 31st, A.K.A., my birthday.

Uncle Remus simply chuckles and says, "Only you Ruby, only you."

He then goes to walk past me, ruffling my hair with his callused hand as he does so.

As I was fixing my now, messier than my bed-head already was, hair, and about to protest, a tap on the window caught both of our attention.

A beautiful red and gold colored Phoenix, similar to my own, was perched outside the window with two letters held between its strong beak.

I nimbly opened the window, allowing the majestic bird to swoop in and re-perch itself upon the small kitchen counter.

Uncle Remus gently took the letters from the bird and gently petted him along the back while doing so.

"What is it?" I ask him curiously.

I peer over his should to get a better look at the two letters he was holding.

"Hey, that's addressed to me!" I exclaim seeing that one of the square envelopes had my name on the front.

"Yes it is, here you go," he tells me turning around.

He hands one of the letters over and gently places it in my eager grasp.

I open the letter carefully, breaking the flap off from the glossy red, wax seal that held it there.

I couldn't believe my eyes.

I'm going to Hogwarts!

"Yes!" I yell out and fist bump the air.

Uncle Remus just glances behind him and laughs softly at my immature antics.

"Oh, uh, Ruby... I have some news for you, --both good, don't worry." He explains to me nervously.
