It had been Amy's worst birthday ever. She had gotten gifts from her brothers, and her friends (Darren and Jenna) which had been taken away by her annoying and brattish cousin, Emily. Amy had been forced to punch Emily in the face and scream insults at her. Emily had ended up crying, and Henry had scolded Amy and sent her up to the shared room.

Amy and Emily shared a room together, much to their disgust. Charlie, Adam and Jake also shared a room, thankfully next door. Emily's room was a disgusting lilac colour, with fairies and unicorn stickers dotted around the room. A room of a 3 year old, Adam had said. Emily was still brooding over the fact she didn't get into Hogwarts, and everyone else in our family did.

There was a soft knock on the door and Charlie bounded into Amy's room. He held something  behind his back.

"What's that?" Amy asked curiously.

"I'm probably gonna get a beating for this..." Charlie whispered. "But I got your presents back from Emily!" He presented me with a large wooden box, and ran out of the room into his own. Inside the box was 3 jars of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans from Darren, Tales of Beedle the Bard from Jenna and a mountain of Chocolate Frogs from her brothers. But, still in Henry and Jasmine's room, was her main present from her brothers: a Cleansweep Six. It must have cost them a fortune to buy, and they must have bought it last year when we went to Diagon Alley. 

This year, Amy was hoping to try out as a Chaser for the Hufflepuff Quidditch Team. Her Dad was a Seeker for the Tutshill Tornadoes, and she had been taught how to fly a broom since she was very young. Hopefully, she would do well in the try-outs near the start of September. 

A few hours later, Emily came up into the bedroom. Amy was very careful about where she hid her birthday presents; under her bed, behind her trunk. Emily looked at Amy, huffing and puffing. Amy grinned at her, which made her more angry. They got changed into their pyjamas, and then, Emily began to talk to Amy properly.

"How come you get to go to Hogwarts, then? Everyone knows your side of the family are scum anyway!" she whispered.

Amy ignored Emily, by turning over and clamping her pillow over her head. She could hear her second cousin whispering to her, but she tuned her out. Eventually, Emily gave up and fell asleep.

An argument had broken out over the breakfast table. More like a shouting match between Emily, her mum and dad, and Jake, Charlie, Adam and Amy. 

"I DON'T CARE WHAT EMILY SAID ABOUT YOUR MUM!" shouted Henry. "YOU WILL NOT BE 'BEATING HER TO A PULP'"

"SHE CALLED HER A MENTALIST WHO SHOULD'VE BEEN LOCKED UP YEARS AGO FOR MARRYING OUR DAD!" bellowed Adam in return.

"Well it's true," Jasmine hissed. "Your father was never a nice man, no..."

"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!" roared Jake.

"Filthy Mudbloods like your Dad should be wiped out!" Jasmine spat.

Charlie and Adam shoved over the table. Jake pulled out his wand and Amy jumped on Jasmine.

"WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY DAD?" Amy screeched at Jasmine. "WHAT DID YOU BLOODY SAY? I'LL WIPE YOU OUT YOU ROTTEN B-"

It was Adam that dragged Amy away, kicking and screaming and cursing. 

Later on that morning, Charlie came into her room, with a bloody nose and a black eye. He had apparently fought Henry with Jake alongside when Henry began to talk of Amy. Amy felt an immediate rush of affection towards her two brothers, who had tried to take on Henry, a 6"5" man with sturdy shoulders and fists the size of hams.

"The next time we'll be allowed out of this stupid old house will be when we go to Diagon Alley" said Amy grimly.
