Author's Note: Okay, I'm nervous. Starting a new story and trying to write some concepts in which I have no experience writing about. I'm trying my hand at putting some couples in my story, which is something I haven't done before, so please be nice.
My other story didn't really get much interest from people, so I hope this goes better. Please review so I know that people are reading it. Give me advice, praise and criticism (hopefully of the constructive type). Okay, I'm shutting up now.

The Key of Hogwarts
Prologue - The Key
Buffy patrolled the dangerous town of Sunnydale as she did every night. Wandering the dark streets and the cemeteries, searching for any paranormal activity.
"Jeez, evil must be taking a night off," Buffy said to herself, looking around at the quiet and deserted streets. "Either that, or they're planning something big."
She continued to walk, clutching her favourite stake, trying to ignore her boredom.
After at least another hour of no odd occurrences, she shrugged and gave up. She turned in the direction of her house and headed towards home.
Passing an old factory on her way home, she noticed something odd. She went closer to investigate what appeared to be something on the ground. As she got closer, she recognised it as a body.
She rushed over to find out if they were still alive. It was a man, dressed in a brown cape or cloak; he looked like he was a monk or something along those lines.
He was severely injured. Deep cuts, gouges and bruises covered his body. Small pools of blood were left on the surrounding ground.
After feeling a pulse, she tried to sit him up against a nearby fence and wake him up. As she did so, his eyes fluttered open and he turned his injured head to look at Buffy.
"Are you alright," Buffy said asking the obvious. "Who did this to you?"
He began to speak, his voice weak. "A god named Glory, she's looking for 'the Key'."
"What is 'the Key'?" She asked, baffled.
"It is energy, a portal that opens the door," He paused and a look of pain crossed his face. "Quickly, you mustn't let her get it."
Buffy frowned. "Where is it, what does it look like?"
"We tried to hide it by making it in human form and disguising it as a girl who goes to Hogwarts, in England." He answered, rushing because he knew he had little time left. "Glory knows it's in England now, soon she'll be there - looking for it. You must not let her find 'the Key'."
"Hogwarts, what-" She was cut of by a groan of pain from the man.
"Good luck." He spoke on his last breath before his head fell back and he lay there, lifeless.
Buffy slowly, and softly, rested his head on the ground and stood up. Many thoughts were rushing through her head.
She turned around slowly and then sprinted all the way to 1630 Revello Drive, her home. She rushed in through the front door and entered the lounge room, where the Scooby's, minus Giles, sat curled up on the couches with blankets and pillows.
Her mother, Joyce Summers, appeared behind her, carrying a tray containing a large bowl of popcorn and several drinks.
"Back so soon, honey?" She asked softly, in her usual tone.
"Oh well, it's good you're here now, Buf." Xander interrupted. "We were almost about to start a movie without you."
With the conversation from earlier still running through her head, Buffy kept a serious face and spoke up. "We need to get Giles over here, I have a lot to tell you guys."

A.N - Well that's the Prologue, don't worry, it's meant to be short and the other chapters will hopefully be three times longer. Anyway, now you've read the first part, please tell me what you think. :)
