Adela. No. Adelaide. No. Alena.

Ada sighed deeply, hurriedly scribbling out all of the relatives of her name before hastily spinning around to face her parents who were relaxing in armchairs behind her.

“Adelajda, darling, please don’t spin so fast you will hurt yourself!”

Ada held back the urge to roll her eyes and quickly mumbled an apology. “Mummy, what do you think my pen name should be?” Both of her parents
looked at each other before their eyes darted back to Ada’s. “Pen name?” Her father said bewildered, before turning to his wife.

“Oh yes! I’m writing an opinion piece and I want it to remain anonymous.” She grinned, knowing what their reaction would be but testing the waters anyway.

“Opinion piece? … In a newspaper?” Her mother gasped, eyes bulging. “Do you think that’s safe?”

“Yes, I’m trying to build my career as a journalist so I think it’s important that I get some experience writing.” She smiled, intentionally appearing innocent. She knew that her parents loved it when she dedicated herself towards her future, but any behaviour deemed as risky was not acceptable in this household. Both of her parents looked at eachother, clearly communicating through their eyes. Ada kept her perfect smile, but recognized that her parents needed to be pushed further.

“I know you’re concerned but I am old enough to keep myself safe. I’m smart.”

“Adelajda, of course we support your career, but we don’t want you bringing any danger upon yourself” her mother said calmly. “You know how careful we have to be.”

“I agree with your mother,” her father chimed in. “We have already lost so much as family! Do you really want to pull us into more issues?”

Ada paused, carefully choosing her next words while intentionally trying to appear as innocent as possible. “We haven’t lost everything as a family. We have each other. I know you’re concerned, but things really aren’t how they were when you both were growing up. We’re safe now!”

She understood that her parents were traumatized by everything they had seen - war, displacement, immigrating to England. But, by and large, during her lifetime nothing too traumatic had happened and she desired the freedom other girls her age had.

“That’s why it’s anonymous!” She laughed softly, trying to relieve their nervousness. “Do you want to read my article?” She snatched her notebook from her desk and crossed the room to offer it to her parents. They nodded approvingly. “It’s an analysis on the effectiveness of the Hogwarts curriculum in comparison to the magical curriculum’s in other European schools.”

The grin returned to her face, knowing this would be detail that would convince her parents. “Exciting! What a bright girl!” Her mother exclaimed. “So, what is your pen name Miss Adelajda?”

“Hmm. I think Adelaide Kennedy. It’s me, but English.”

Option I:

Ada scrunched her nose and squinted her eyes simultaneously. The dungeons. How gross. She would never understand why they had decided to build a common room and classrooms here. Maybe a fresh coat of paint and adding a few windows would make it less unpleasant to be in and would remove the odours.

However, as unpleasant as the dungeons were, it offered many opportunities for snooping. People kissing people who they weren’t supposed to, people gossiping and spilling their secrets. The dungeons were truly the place to be if you wanted to find out things that you weren’t supposed to know.

The dungeons are the underside of the Hogwarts community, providing a space for Hogwarts students to express themselves in ways that aren’t always acceptable in the wider community. The dungeons are where you will find the secrets that so desperately need to be exposed.

She scribbled this into her notebook, the potion-infused air clearly allowing her creativity to flow. She paused writing and continued down the dingy corridor, convinced that she could hear footsteps ahead. She grinned, hoping that she would come across a 7th year cheating on his girlfriend or a Professor in a private conversation. Oh, that would be fun.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

The grin dropped from Ada’s face. This was clearly a lost and confused first year, no drama there.

“Yes, this is she.” Ada responded in a light voice, trying to appear ghostly. She immediately felt bad, while this could be funny, bullying a child was not something she wanted to do.

“I’m just kidding, please don’t cry or something. This is Ada.” She stepped into the light to prove to the younger girl that she was an actual alive person and not a ghost.

“Have you seen anyone else down here?” she asked with her innocent voice, clearly trying to make up for attempting to scare the girl just moments ago. “I’m looking for someone.”
