    DRAMA IN THE SCRIMGEOUR FAMILY?



    O n September 11, news broke that Miss Annabelle Scrimgeour had left her family home with no plans of returning. Sources have said that Miss Scrimgeour had been disowned, yet this has not yet since been confirmed. Said sources also continued onto say that the reasons behind her disownment were nothing more than familial disagreements, though others have disagreed.

    “From the moment I met that girl, I knew she was trouble. Her parents rescued her from those poor muggles in 1880, and she showed them no gratitude! She was always combative and arguing with them — a very nasty girl indeed. It does not all surprise me that she failed to live up to their expectations, for what could you expect from a girl who grew up among thieves and prostitutes? I wouldn’t be surprised if she’d went and gotten herself in trouble!”

    Older readers may have remembered the day back in December of 1868 when Miss Scrimgeour was kidnapped out of her pram while on a walk with her nanny in London. A search ensued, but she was never found — at least not until the day her twin sister began Hogwarts in 1880!
    The two girls were said to have met face-to-face, leading to the discovery that she’d been living with working class muggles for her first eleven years!

    Other sources have come to Miss Scrimgeour’s defense. “Miss Scrimgeour might have been raised by poor muggles, but they showed her love and compassion her natal parents never showed her. Why in Merlin’s name would she show gratitude towards people who kidnapped her (for all intents and purposes) from a family who loved her so dearly?” Another source close to the girl added to that comment: “She was so miserable living with the Scrimgeours. They were always comparing her to that oh-so-perfect twin sister of hers. What a nightmare that must’ve been to live with. I don’t at all blame her from escaping such a toxic environment.”

    Those same sources told us that Miss Scrimgeour has since been living with a school friend in Southampton. The Daily Prophet is still unsure of the situation leading up to the young debutante’s disownment, but we will keep you updated on any developments.
