1. The Letter

Aaron Gostling was an eleven year old wizard. She has spent her entire life waiting for the chance to go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Both her parent are well known wizards. They are Dragon Keepers. They carry all different types of Dragons. Her father is a Dragonologist, he has studied and written many books about dragons. They have been using specific spells to train the dragons.

Aaron was working hard one day doing her regular chores. Wash the dishes, feed the owls, and polish the dragon eggs. After that it was time for her to wash up and get ready for the day. She bathed and brushed her long curly blonde hair. Aaron stared at herself in the mirror looking at the scars down her face. Working with dragons all your life you are bound to have a few unforgetful memories. She was still a beautiful girl no matter how many scars she had streaking down her face. The scar that was most noticeable was the one hanging from her eye it almost looked like a tear falling from her face but it was red and dark. Aaron has always been insecure about it but her father always said it was something to be proud of. Her mother would only joke saying it was made by lord Voldemort like Harry Potter, never speaking his name of course. But that joke never got a laugh considering the sad story she was relating it to.

A large squeal came from down stairs of the Gostling house. Aaron ran down the steps to see what had happened.

"Aaron!!! Come look!!!" Screamed Mrs. Gostling.

"What is it mother?" Aaron said anxiously.

"It is a letter to you from Hogwarts!" she screamed yet again.

Aaron ripped open the letter and read it
