14. the howler
I didn't want to go to breakfast that morning. But I had to. People woke me up exiting the common room. I was staving I hadn't eaten since dinner at my house. I followed a group of third year Hufflepuffs down to the great hall. I had no idea where Flutter, Katie, or Tasha was since they were gone when I woke up.
I'm too small! I can't blend into the second years so I have to just go myself. I walk in and everyone stops talking. As I walk by some people laugh and some shack their heads. Since the sorting hat I haven't looked at my family and I wasn't going to start now.
I sit down next to Flutter, Tasha, and Katie when the mail comes. Owl by owl fly over our heads. It was amazing. I watch as the owls landed. One landed next to Flutter who looked surprised. Then one landed next to me holding a red letter in it's mouth. All eyes were all me as soon as I got the letter. Wow I thought they must love colors. I opened the letter when it started to yell.
"REBECCA! HOW DARE YOU! WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL US THIS IS BAD FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY! YOU ARE LUCKY WE ARE STILL PAYING FOR THAT SCHOOL. AT THE RATE YOU ARE GOING THE NEXT TIME YOU WILL BE IN MUGGLE SCHOOL! ALSO DID YOU NOT STUDY HOW DID YOU GET INTO HUFFLEPUFF! YOUR CRAZY WAYS ARE TO MUCH AND NOW YOU ARE SHAMING THE FAMILY! ONE MORE MISTAKE AND YOU WILL BEING COMING RIGHT HOME! YOU BETTER BE STUDYING BECAUSE WHEN YOU GET HOME WE ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU A POP QUIZ!"
The letter burned in flames in front of my face. I wanted to cry but Flutter was doing that already. I looked over at her note and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Flutter was going home.
