butterfly effect || harry potter
Five years ago, a muggle girl was in a car accident, but it wasn't your average fender bender. The girl was a witch, and was destined to be one of the strongest that this world has ever seen. Dumbledore, who had been keeping watch on this girl since her birth, instantly was aware of the tragedy, and took the girl into his custody. Knowing that he couldn't care for the girl like she needed, he requested the help of the bright young minds that he knew would be capable of the job at hand. Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, and Sirius Black had graduated from Hogwarts, and the three were enlisted to protect the young girl, Erika, at all costs.
However, tensions were thick between the men, and there were often fights among them. The only way they were stopped from fighting each other was little Erika.
Tensions were strung high, and a fatal accident causing the death of the little girl tore the men apart, causing them to disband, and leave each other alone.
Now, seven years later, the three haven't forgotten about the little girl, and she hasn't forgotten.
The grave that held the little eight year old is empty, and someone has been lurking around Hogwarts without anyone's knowledge, and the only thing that can be seen is a whirl of blonde hair.
Are the ones that leave us actually gone?
