3. Chapter 1

I woke up to the sound of birds chirping way in the distance. I yawned and trudged out of bed towards my wardrobe picking out a random pair of shorts and a tank top. Coming out of the washroom I remembered what day it was and my spirits lifted. Today I turned 11! I did a little dance and heard a chuckle behind me. I turned around to come face to face with Alex!!

“Happy birthday, Alex!!” I yelled.

“Happy birthday to you too, now come on downstairs breakfasts ready.”

In the kitchen I was greeted by a chorus of happy birthday and a huge breakfast.

Suddenly I heard a THUMP!

“Mail’s here!!” I yelled not getting my lazy bum up from my seat.

“Percy can you get that please” Said Aunt Molly.

“Our Hogwarts letters are here, Ron, Alex and Amy's too” replied Percy.

I grabbed mine and tore it open

“YES YES YES YES!!” Ron and I screamed jumping up and doing a little dance and even Alex joined us!!

“Okay okay kids calm down” Exclaimed Aunt Molly with a huge grin plastered on her face.

“When can we go to Diagon ally to pick our things? Can we go today?!?” I said.

“Yes, that is a good idea. We can get your birthday presents too” Smiled

Aunt Molly.

“Yay!” I yelled running up to my room to get changed into something decent.

I changed into a I pair of black skinny jeans f a yellow v-neck shirt along with my yellow converse.

“Let’s go!!” I yelled bombarding down the stairs after 15 minutes.

Everyone was assembled in front of the fireplace. We were traveling by floo powder. YAY! After the twins and Percy had gone it was my turn. I grabbed a pinch of the powder and yelled

“Diagon Alley”

I safely landed on my feet facing the twins. Five minutes later everyone was here.

“Where do we go first?” I asked excited since it was my first time here.

“Gringotts” said aunt molly simply.

We had reached a snowy-white building which towered over the other little shops. Standing beside its burnished bronze doors, wearing a uniform of scarlet and gold, was-

“Yup, that’s a goblin!” Exclaimed Fred as we walked up the white stone steps towards him. The goblin was about a head shorter than me. He had a swarthy, clever face, and a pointed beard along with unusually long fingers and feet. He bowed his head as we walked inside.

Now we were facing a second pair of doors, silver this time, with words engraved upon them:

Enter, stranger, but take heed

Of what awaits the sin of greed,

For those who take, but do not earn,

Must pay most dearly in the turn,

So if you seek beneath our floors

A treasure that was never yours,

Thief, you have been warned, beware

Of finding more than treasure there.

A pair of goblins bowed at us as we passed through the silver doors and into a vast marble hall. About a hundred more goblins were sitting on high stools behind a large counter, scribbling on large ledgers, weighing coins in brass scales, examining precious stones through eye-glasses. There were too many doors to count leading off the hall, and yet even more goblins were showing people in and out of these. All of us made for the counter.

“Morning” Said aunt molly to a free goblin. ”We've come to take money out of mister and miss Cahor's safe and Weasley vault 768.”

After getting our money we made our way back to Diagon alley.

“Honey, you and Alex can go and get your uniforms while we get you birthday presents.” She said nodding towards madam Malkins Robes for All Occasions.

Madam Malkin was a squat, smiling witch dressed all in mauve.

“Hogwarts, dears?” She asked and I nodded. “Got a lot here-another young man is being fitted up just now, in fact.”

In the back of the shop a boy with a pale, pointed face was standing on a footstool while a second witch pinned up his long black robes. Madam Malkin stood me on a stool next to him. Slipped a long robe over my head and began to pin it to the right length.

“Hullo,” said the boy. “Hogwarts too?”

I simply nodded as my brother replied with a -

“Yes”

“My father’s next door buying my books and my mother’s up the street looking at wands,” Said the boy. He had a bored, drawling sort of voice. “Then I'm going to drag them off to look at racing brooms. I don’t see why first years can’t have their own. I think ill bully father into getting me one and ill smuggle it in somehow. Have you got your own broom?”

“No” We replied.

“I do- Father says it’s a crime if I'm not picked to play for my house, and I must say, I agree. Know what house you’ll be in yet?” He asked looking at me.

“Not really” I replied, “maybe Gryffindor"

“Well, no one really knows until they get there, do they, but I know I’ll be in Slytherin, all our family have been- imagine being in Hufflepuff, I think I’d leave, wouldn't you?”

This boy was annoying me more and more by the minute and I guess Alex noticed as he answered for us

“Uh-huh”

“Where are your parents? Both of you?”

“They’re dead” I replied coldly tear brimming in my eyes.

“oh, sorry” said the boy, not sounding sorry at all “ but they were our kind weren’t they?”

“they were a witch and wizard, if that’s what you mean.” I replied quickly before Alex said something wrong.

Then madam Malkin told us we were done and the boy bid us goodbye and we left. We stopped to buy parchment and quills and then met up with the rest at flourish and botts.

After getting all the rest of our supplies then we went to buy our wands at Ollivander’s

I had sycamore, Phoenix feather core, 13 inches, slightly springy.

Alex had Apple, dragon heartstring core, 12 1/2 inches, supple.

We met up with the rest at flourish and blotts and went back home.
