Is This What I Really Want?

Alyssa Rookwood is the daughter of Augustas Rookwood. It is her first year at Hogwarts, but unlike most people, she is dreading it. Pressure is on her to get into Slytherin, Alyssa wants to please her family but also lead a life. Unlike most Death Eater children, Alyssa isn't blinded by 'the dark side'.

Oh no, it's today. I have to go to Hogwarts today. My mum, because of the kind and caring person she is, woke me up by dumping my clean washing on me and slamming the door. She seems in quite a good mood today. I have a feeling it's because i'm leaving. I decided to stay in bed for a bit longer seeing as it was only 7 o'clock, I mean, I had packed yesterday so there wasn't much to do, but my mum had different ideas. Apparently my mum and dad had to go somewhere so it turns out we have to get the the station by nine, then i'm being dumped there, I have to wait for a few hours, then I can get the train. Looks like i'm in for a fun morning. 


"For goodness sake, just sort it out later!". That's my mum. She keeps snapping at me and telling me to hurry up, I mean, there is a certain speed limit at which one can tie shoe laces! My dad had just come down the stairs. Uh oh. He doesn't look in his best mood today. After my mum goes to get my trunk, he comes up really close to me, I can smell his breath, eww. "Do you remember what we talked about last night?", he hisses in my face. "Umm, ye-e-s s-sir". That's me. I might not sound it normally, but I am quite scared of my dad. He quickly steps back as my mum comes in. Oh, I certainly remember the little chat we had yesterday. Basically, he wants me to be in Slytherin and that it would be a disgrace if I was anything else blah blah blah. To be honest, I don't care what he thinks.Sure, I will care if he tries to kill me or something, but I don't care about whether he feels disappointed in me. If he wanted me to care, then he should have tried a bit harder. 


They did exactly what I thought they would do! After we apparated here, they just left. As in, they didn't say "goodbye", or "we will miss you". They just left me, with my trunk and Cookie. As you can tell, my family are magical so I already knew how to get onto the platform. Surprisingly there were a few witches and wizards standing around so at least I wasn't the only one. Standing there, I started to realize how lucky I was that mum and dad hadn't come onto the platform, as they weren't exactly popular after You Know Who's downfall. Plus, it would be kinda good if people didn't know who I was as it will make it quite a bit easier to make friends!
