April Hagrid #1- The Sorcerer's Stone

You know the groundskeeper from hogwarts? He has a daughter Harry's age named april. She has had the adventures with the three friends but has never been talked about.


6. Diagon Alley Part 3

Outside the Apothecary, Hagrid checked Harry's list again. 

"Just our wands left — oh yeah and we still haven't gotten you a present Harry." April said. 

Twenty minutes later they came out of the Eeylops Owl Emporioum, which had been dark and full of rustling and flickering, jewel-bright eyes. Harry and April now carried two owls out in cages. Harry had gotten a snowy owl fast asleep with her head under her wing. April had a snowy owl too but he had a black spot by his eye. Harry couldn't stop stammering his thanks, sounding just like Professer Quirrell. 

"Don't mention it," said April. "We need to get to Ollivanders, and we gotta have the best wand."

A magic wand … this was what Harry had been really looking forward to. 

The last shop was narrow and shabby. Peeling gold letters over the door read Ollivanders: Makers of fine wands since 382 B.C. A single wand lay on a faded purple cushion in the dusty window. 

A tinkling bell rang somewhere in the depths of the shop as they stepped inside. It was a tiny place except for a single, spindly chair that Hagrid sat on to wait. Harry and April felt strangely as though they entered a very strict library; Harry swallowed a lot of new questions that had just occurred to him and looked instead at the thousands of narrow boxes piled up to the ceiling. For some reason, the back of April's neck prickled. The very dust and silence in here seemed to tingle with some secret magic. 

"Good afternoon," said a soft voice. Harry jumped. April screamed. Hagrid must've jumped, too, because there was a loud crunching noise and he got quickly off the spindly chair. 

An old man was standing behind a old counter and came over to the three of them. 

"Hello." Harry said awkwardly. 

"Ah, Harry Potter." The man said. "I've been expecting to see you in a while. You have your mother's eyes. It seems only yesterday she was in her herself buying her first wand. Ten and a quarter inches long, swishy, made of willow. Nice for charm work."

Mr. Ollivander moved closer to Harry and April. They wished he would blink. Those silvery eyes were a little creepy. 

"Well now, Mr. Potter. Let me see." Ollivander pulled out a long tape measure with silver markings out of his pocket. "Which is your wand arm?" 

"Well, I'm right-handed," Harry said. 

"Hold out your arm that's it." Harry was measured from shoulder to finger, then wrist to elbow, shoulder to floor, knee to armpit and round his head. 

Harry got his wand then it was April's turn. When she got her wand it was fourteen and a half inches, Rowan wood, Unicorn core, quite flexible. Great for transfiguration. 

They then left Diagon Alley and Hagrid went back to Hogwarts when April went to privet drive with Harry for the summer.
