Soon, I had all of my supplies except for one thing. I was now looking for a wand. Hagrid had guided me to Ollivander's and left. Now I was standing in front of the entrance to the shop.
I pushed open the door and a short old man looked up at me. He paused for a moment, thinking, I guess. Then he stood up and smiled. He looked me over. Next he turned away and disappeared, not like truly disappeared, but walked away.
He returned with a long, slender box in his hands. He took the box and placed it into my hands smiling up at me.
"Go on, now." He patted my hands, "Take it out and give it a wave."
"Okay," I opened the box and pulled out a pure white wand
It was beautiful. I waved it around, wondering what was supposed to happen. Out of nowhere red sparks shot out of the tip of the wand and the man ducked. The vase of flowers behind him exploded. He shook his head as I set the wand on his desk.
"That will not do, that will not do at all." He muttered to himself walking away again
He returned with a new box and gave it to me. He nodded and I took the second wand out of the box. I waved it around and bright green light flew out of the end of the wand. He dove out of the way trying to dodge the light.
"Oh, come on now." He left and returned with a new box
He continued to hand me wand after wand until he finally gasped.
"It cannot be," He hurried away
"What?" I asked
"There is only one twin of this wand, it belongs to a man I believe you may have encountered in your youth. I presume you are, in fact, Neville Longbottom?" He mused
"I am, in fact. You are the first one to realize that I am me soon after meeting me. Without me telling you anyway." I sighed
"Now, give it a wave," He nodded impatiently
"All right, all right. I will." I raised the ugly wand and gave it a wave
It obediently did nothing but light up. He smiled hesitantly, seeming to be sad that the wand reacted like it had.
"I am sorry Neville-" I cut him off
"I will put it down now, it is all right." I sighed and covered my face with my hands
Maybe I was not magical after all.
"No, you did not let me finish." He sighed, "That is the wand for you, I said I was sorry for you because of the owner of this wand's twin. He really is not a good person, was not, I should say."
Hey, so I just got a brilliant (I think it's brilliant anyway) idea. I am planning starting a Harmony (Harry and Hermoine ship, if you didn't know) fan fiction. Comment what you think! I will be starting it now, don't worry about both not being updated. I will keep up as best as I can. Anyway, I will look for your comment. The name will Tears, Roses, and Desparation. I am thinking about something another person wrote and I like the idea so I might do something similar to Légitimement Mariés by FlutePlayer56.
