Running to a Magical Land

Ever since they'd died, it had been my brother, Tom and I. To start with, everything was alright but as the months passed, everything went downhill. Tom acted as if something had possessed him and strange things kept happening to me. Magical things. Magical things I couldn't explain, I'd learnt to except that these things were happening but the powers were growing stronger.


5. The Potter Household

Chapter 5 – The Potter Household

            Albus lead Hagrid and I down the hall and into a nicely sized room, sitting in the room was another boy, I guessed this was Albus’ older brother, and on his lap was a young girl – her hair wasn’t black though, it was red. Beside them was a man, with round glasses, stunning green eyes and a scar in a lightning shape. He was holding hands with a woman, whose hair was red and I suspected she was the man’s wife. The man stood up and walked towards Hagrid, held out his hand for a handshake and was taken aback when Hagrid pinned his arms to his sides and lifted him into a big hug. Albus and I, who were stood side by side, chuckled.

            “And a hello to you, too, Hagrid.” The man breathed. Hagrid held onto him until the man’s glasses fell to the ground a cracked.

            “Oh, sorry, Harry. It’s jus’ I haven’t seen you in so lon’.” Hagrid said, putting Albus’ dad down. Harry bent over and picked up his glasses, gave them a wiped on his shirt and pulled out a stick. Wait no, not a stick… a wand!

            “Don’t you worry, Hagrid. I’m a wizard, remember?” Harry chuckled and held his glasses in one hand, wand in the other. Clearing his throat, he muttered, “Oculus Repairo.” The crack in the glasses vanished as quick as it had appeared and Harry fixed the glasses over his eyes again. He turned to face me and smiled – only then did I realise that my mouth was wide open.

            “H-hi.” I managed to say. “I’m Evie.” I waved a little.

            “Hello, Evie. I’m Harry Potter. Over there is my son James, on his lap is my daughter Lily and that… that beautiful women is my wife, Ginny.” Harry smiled and Ginny blushed. “I should think you’ve already been introduced to Albus?”

            “Yes, it’s very nice to meet you all.” I said, a little more confidently.

            “Come in, sit down.” Ginny said, opening her arms to show she was welcoming. Harry went and sat back down next to her; Albus went and sat next to his brother and sister; Hagrid pulled up a chair and sat on that; and I, well I just stood there – awkwardly. Eventually I went and sat in between Harry and Albus. Ginny got up and brought in some drinks and sweets. Harry didn’t take any sweets, just a drink. Then Ginny came to me, I gratefully took a drink and a small purple box. The box said Chocolate Frog and, remembering this was the wizarding world, I asked,

“They’re not real frogs, are they?”

“No, just enchanted to move like the real thing.” James said. “Open it,”

“Okay.” I said as I smiled. Putting my drink down on the table, I clasped the purple package in my hands. Slowly I opened the box and, placing my hand over the top as I took the lid off, I grasped the enchanted piece of chocolate in my palm. Putting the box by my side I turned back to the frog, trying to figure out how to eat it. Everyone was watching me, wondering how I would get on with my first piece of wizarding chocolate. I didn’t like the feeling of being watched because it made my nerves go wobbly, so wobbly, in fact that the frog jumped out of my hands and was hopping towards the doorway before an owl swooped down and snatched it from the floor. My eyes widened – owls were my favourite animal but I had never seen one in person. The owl landed on my lap and gave me the frog which I ate straight away, then it flew back to its perch. I looked inside the purple packet and saw a small card. Taking it out of the box, I looked at the card and saw that the picture was moving – the picture was of Harry Potter. “I got you, Harry!” he chuckled and took a swig of his drink.
