Hey it’s Teddy again. I didn’t feel like writing in here today. I needed to. We had a typical morning. Sirius reading the Daily Prophet, Remus reading a book and I, eating eggs and bacon with hunger. Regulus was still in upstairs but he was probably in the shower. The door bell rang and Sirius walked to the door, opening it slightly.
“Hi hum.. Does Teddy Lupin live here?” A girl’s voice asked.
“Oh.. Yes he does, who’s asking?” Sirius said, opening the door a bit wider.
“I’m Ella.. His sister.”
For a moment I couldn’t think clearly. I knew I was adopted but I would never think about it. My real parents were Remus and Sirius. I dropped my fork and looked at the girl. She was tall and had golden curly hair. Her lips were coated with a red lipstick and her face was full of freckles. I had to remember how to breathe for a moment. How could she be my sister? I would have known. The orphanage would have told my dads.
“You..You’re his real sister?” Sirius asked.
“Yes. Can I.. Can I please see him?” She said, tears in her eyes.
I stood up and she looked behind Sirius. When she saw me she gasped and colapsed on her knees. I didn’t know what to do so I walked up to her slowly bending to take her in my arms. She held me tightly.
“It’s really you.” She cried.
I didn’t say anything. I just held her. I didn’t know what to do. After a few seconds, Remus told her to come in. She quickly wipped her tears away and sat down, feeling like a burden.
“I’m so sorry to disturb you so early in the morning.. I just had to see him.” She said, smiling at me.
“It’s alright. We..We thought that Teddy only had a mother.” Sirius said, sitting down.
“We did once. I never knew her. It was one of her maid that took care of us, until she took us to the orphanage because she needed to escape the country. I was only a toddler when it happened. I was adopted days before Teddy and I never knew where he ended up. I wanted to see him. To make sure he was okay.” She said, looking at me.
“H-How did you know my name and where I was?” I asked her, already feeling like i was talking to a long lost friend.
“I went back to the orphanage and found my way into the system, trying to find our file. Oh Teddy when I found you I just wanted to cry of happiness. I didn’t want to arrive there and see you, still locked up without a family.. i took your adress and obliviated whomever saw me.” She said, looking down at her hands.
“Wait.. you’re a witch too?” I asked her.
“Yes.” She smiled. “I was addopted by this lovely french couple and got to attend Beauxbatons. When my parents told me we were moving back to London, I took the opportunity to do what I always wanted to. Find you.” She said.
At this moment I hugged her. She was like me. I had a sister.
“But.. I don’t remember you..” I said, looking down.
“You were only a newborn when we got seperated. Don’t blame yourself, you couldn’t know..” she said, her hand brushing on my cheek.
“Ella..” I whispered.
She nodded and hugged me again. It’s only now that I started crying. It was only silent tears running on my cheeks. My dads layed their hands on my shoulders and Remus spoke up.
“Are you okay Ted?” He asked.
“Yeah..” I said.
“We’re going to let you two talk okay? You have a lot to catch up on.” Sirius smiled, kissing my hairline before leaving to the library downstairs with Remus.
“Do you want to go to my room?” I asked.
“Sure.” She smiled.
When she walked in she smiled and spoke up.
“I knew you would like books. I use to tell you stories when we were at the orphanage. You couldn’t fall asleep without one.” She smiled.
“Yeah my dad gave me his passion. He owns the library downstairs, I could show you one day. I mean, if you’re going to stick around..”
“I will, only if you want me to.”
I nodded and she smiled, sitting on my bed.
“I can’t believe how you’ve grown up. I’m so glad you found a family Teddy.”
“Is your family nice to you?” I asked.
“Oh yes they are! They were quite suprised when they figured out I was a witch but they are so suportive and they love me a lot.” She said, her eyes shinning.
She looked around my room and couldn’t stop smiling.
“I’m sorry I didn’t look for you earlier Teddy..” she said, looking down once more.
“Hey.. It’s okay. I can understand.” I said, taking her hand.
“But tell me about you! What do you like? Did you go to Hogwarts? Tell me everything!” She said, excitingly.
So i told her everything. From being a metamorphmagus to having the cutest boyfriend ever. She was so wonderful. After what only felt like minutes, my dads came in, asking if we wanted to join them for lunch. It had been 3 hours of us talking.
“Yeah we want to learn about your sister!” Sirius said.
“That’s my dad, Sirius. He’s the one who likes motorbikes and black leather jackets! Pads, she actually likes the same bands you do!” I said, hoping they would get along.
“I feel like you and me are going to be friends.” He smirked.
“And this is my dad, Remus. The book lover, chocolate conoisseur and jumper collecter!” I laughed.
“And I’d love to learn more about you, Ella.” Dadda added.
We shared lunch together and she met Regulus. I couldn’t wait to tell James Sirius about my lost sister.
