2. Birthday

I carefully wiped down the small potion vials and scrubbed out all the grime that covered them. This wasn't the sort of thing I wanted to do today. It was kinda my birthday. I didn't even think my father remembered.

When I got done with the bottles, I moved on to the potion ingredients storage. It was a mess in there! It was utter chaos! I groaned and reluctantly got to work.

After two hours of hard and tiring work, it was completely spotless in there. I gave a small smile at my hard work all done. I actually felt really accomplished.

After than, my father said I could be done. Finally. I sat, resting in my bedroom, playing with a lose thread from my shirt. It was at times like these when I was bored, that I thought about the Hogwarts houses, and which on I'd be Sorted into. Naturally, my father wanted me in Slytherin. And while that sounds...great...I didn't think I was sly or cunning at all. Besides, I didn't really like snakes. Slytherin just wasn't for me.

Then there was Gryffindor. My father told me as a young girl that if I was placed in Gryffindor, he'd disown me and make the centaurs in the Forbidden Forest raise me. I think he only told me that to scare me into not wanting to be a Gryffindor. It worked. But, I'd never really been very brave. I can be a major coward.

Hufflepuff wouldn't be the best option for me. I'm not really known for my kindness.

Ravenclaw would be okay for me. I don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty dang smart. I really love reading. I had to teach myself because my father was always teaching and left me alone for hours almost everyday.

But...then again, I wanted my father to be proud of me...so, I guess my two options were Slytherin or Ravenclaw.

My thoughts were interrupted when there was a loud knock on the door.

"Come in," I said quietly.

My father quickly barged in and walked over to where I sat quietly in the side of my bed.

"Autumn, let's go," he said.

"Go where?" I frowned.

"To Diagon Alley to get your school things."

"Oh. You didn't tell me we were."

"That's because I've just decided it. Don't take  that tone with me."

"I don't have a 'tone.'"

"You're using it right now and it's very disrespectful."

I sighed and nodded, but didn't say anything else. After all these years I've learned that it's best not to argue with him. He turned and left the room. I followed closely behind and we were at the small cobblestone fireplace to travel by Floo Powder.
