    Erela wasn't entirely sure how she felt about getting her acceptance letter from Hogwarts. Her father had told her stories about it for as long as she could remember. As if she was guaranteed acceptance to go with half wizard blood she inherited from her father. Her mum was a muggle from America and a part of her was so sure that she didn't have any magical ability.

    She honestly hadn't had anything magical that she had done unintentionally, only her father would do some magic from time to time in the house and at work at the Ministry of Magic in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. He was an Auror, so he was the eyes and ears of what was happening in the magical world. He made sure to pay great attention to any threats that could endanger both the magical world and the muggle world, all in order to protect his family.

    Kind of high expectation to follow his footsteps since she just learned she was magical after all. With muggle blood running through her veins and magical blood mixed in, she really had to try hard to fit well with her future classmates.

    Erela's mum was so excited for her daughter to go to Hogwarts. She had been hoping her little girl would be a witch ever since she found out she was pregnant with her. Immediately, they all planned to go to Diagon Alley the next day to get all the shopping out of the way. All the students would have gotten their letters by then and were most likely going to take up all the space, scrambling around for all their required needs.

    The strange part was . . . Erela didn't seem so excited. She wasn't entirely sure what she was feeling. The eleven year old girl felt . . . rather empty, actually . . .
