Hogwarts- Second Year

Amy Matthews, a witch in Harry Potter's year, tells the story from their perspective.


2. Wandering

The Matthews' children stayed up in their rooms for the rest of the holidays. They found out that Emily usually climbed into bed with her parents at night, which gave them a good laugh. No matter how much Emily taunted Amy, she would always say that she was a sad little Squib that slept with her parents.

A week before they were meant to go back to school, the students got their book lists. Jake, of course, was made Gryffindor Prefect. He flashed his badge around the room, until Henry gave him a stern glare, and he stuffed it in his pocket. 

The book list read:

The Standard Book of Spells (Grade 2) by Miranda Goshawk

Break with a Banshee by Gilderoy Lockhart

Gadding with Ghouls by Gilderoy Lockhart

Travels with Trolls by Gilderoy Lockhart

Wanderings with Werewolves by Gilderoy Lockhart

Year with the Yeti by Gilderoy Lockhart

"Lockhart? Who the heck is that?" Charlie wondered loudly. He shrugged and wandered into the kitchen and grabbed a Chocolate Frog off of Emily.

Days later, they finally set off to Diagon Alley. Henry dropped them off there, with their Gringotts key and told them to be in the Leaky Cauldron by 7pm. 

Charlie and Adam ran to Gringotts and left Amy and Jake alone.After 20 minutes, Amy began to race after them, but they had already made it back with 4 pouches of Galleons, Sickles and Knuts.

"We've got 15 Galleons, 10 sickles and 3 Knuts each, and that has to last us the whole school year!" exclaimed Adam. 

Everyone departed in different directions. Jake went to Flourish and Blotts, Charlie went to see Quality Quidditch Supplies, Adam went to Florean Fortescues and Amy went to Eeylop's Owl Emporium to get some Owl Treats for her barn owl, Avis. She bought a Galleon's worth and wandered off to Flourish and Blotts to buy all her books.

Inside Flourish and Blotts, she saw who must have been the author of most of the books: Gilderoy Lockhart. he was signing them.

"Roll up, roll up!" he shouted cheerily. Then his eyes fell on someone in the crowd; none other than Harry Potter. There were many whispers of excitement as Harry mounted the stage, and was given all his books for free. Amy was just purchasing her six books as a man with long blond hair and a ginger man, began to fight, and toppled over onto a bookcase.

She laughed at them for a little while, then ran off to find one of her siblings. She found Jake chatting with his girlfriend, Penelope Clearwater. His ears reddened when Amy spotted him, and she burst out laughing.

Jake and Penelope scurried away to the Leaky Cauldron, and Amy went to have a look at Broomstix shop, so she could get a Broom-Servicing kit. Her Cleansweep Six looked pretty neat when she saw it, but it might need a clean after a while.

Charlie and Adam were in there gawping over a Nimbus 2001 model. Just then, Draco Malfoy swaggered into the shop, and demanded that he buy 7 Nimbus 2001 models. His father, the long blonde haired man whom was fighting in the shop earlier, bought it for him, and asked for them to be shipped to Hogwarts immediately. The shopkeeper said that would not be possible, but Mr Malfoy slipped him an extra 20 Galleons with the order. 

The duo strode out of the shop, just before Ron Weasley and his younger sister ran in to look at some broomsticks that they'd never be able to afford.
