The Diary Of A Hogwarts Student_Book 1_Letters And Mystery

Emma Lilas discovered she's a witch a few days after Hermione Granger. But mysteriously, no wizards came to explain her what she needs to know, and her parents acted strangely since she got her Hogwarts letter. What if she was not a Muggle-born ? What if she was not meant to be in her House ? And what if her mysterious dreams had something to do with her past ?

New day, new story. That is my moto.

Yesterday, I just wrote what happened in the morning. When I woke up. Today, I'll explain more than just that, because today, there are more interesting facts to talk about. Starting at lunch time.

 

I am eating pasta, not making a noise. Apparently, my parents don't want to break the silence either, but they keep exchanging worried glances. And I, well, have no one to look at, really.

Finally, Mom takes a deep breath, then, still not looking at me, ask : "Are you sure you want to go to Hogwarts ? Sure, sure ?"

She's looking at me as though also asking me to say no. I furiously nod, frowning. Who would ask that kind of question ??

Dad sighs and say : "Do you want to know the truth about our family ?"

I nod again. I mean, who would say no to this question ?

"Okay, now, listen closely, because I am going to be quick, and I won't repeat. You are not Muggle-born, you are pure-blood. Muggle-borns are wizards and witches who were born in a non-magical family (Muggles), half-bloods are wizards with one Muggle or Muggle-born parent, and pure-bloods are wizards with both parents that are not Muggle-borns. And you are one. Through and through."

I stare at him for a while, confused. Pure-blood. Me. Pure-blood...

I don't dare ask him more questions. I look away, trying hard not to yell at them. I mean, they kept a really big secret from me since ever, of course I'd be angry !!

At Hermione's house, I tell her what happened earlier, and ask her : "Why would they tell me now, and just at lunch, asking me if I want to know the truth, and then just say 'you're a pure-blood', without further explanation ??"

"Well, I suppose they wanted you to know before you go to Hogwarts, and that they were quick because they didn't dare say it again."

"Yeah, maybe... But still ! I am only getting eleven years old in August, and already--"

"Emma, please, I don't want to be rude, but shut up !"

Silence. After a minute, Hermione break it by saying : "By the way, Professor McGonagall came this morning with our books, uniforms and materials. Says she doesn't want to come in your house, to not disturb you."

"Professor McGonagall, huh ? Doesn't want to come in my house ? Well, I agree with her, I don't want to go back home after that."

"Oh, Emma, don't be so stupid. You have to go home, my parents can't keep you, and you still need yours. Besides, it's the only way for you to try and get something else from your family out of them. That way, there will be no more secrets."

She has a point, I think. At that moment, Mrs. Granger come in and hand me my books, ustensils and uniform, which is a black cape with grey skirt, grey sweater and white shirt. She also hands the both of us an example of a book called 'Hogwarts : A History'. "You'll undersand easier life at your new school".

Back at my house, I hear my parents arguing in the living room.

"Jane, do you realize the situation ? After banning all magic from our life, calling our daughter with a name as Muggle as we can find, keeping her secrets for her entire life, and they still found us ! Must be all the time she spent with that little Granger girl, I immediately realized she's a witch the first time I saw her !"

"Of course I realize, Benjamin, I know that this is no good sign, I am the most concerned ! There is only one way, to not let Emma go to Hogwarts, and to make sure she won't, I'll erase her memory, and burn down her letter. The school won't insist on letting her in, they know us !"

This time, they had gone too far. I open the door, and burst out : "YOU LIARS ! I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY PARENTS, AND NORMAL ONES SUPPORT THEIR CHILDREN ! NO, YOU WILL NOT ERASE MY MIND, I WILL GO TO HOGWARTS, AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT !!!"

I run towards my house, here my Dad screaming 'Emma Penny Lilas ! Come back here this instant!' and my mother running towards where I suppose is her wand. I don't have much time, I block my room's door, take a bag, put all my school stuff and a pen in it, and at the last moment, grab my diary. I open my window, and hear Mom say something, that is unmistakeably an incantation. Alohomora ! The door burst open, and my parents both come in, wands in there hands.They are going to erase my mind, but no, they won't. I won't let them. If I'm really a witch, than make me fly !! I jump out of the window and... don't fall, but slowly land on the ground. Maybe I'm not flying, but at least I left the house for eternity, and by staying on land, I can run easily to Hermione's house.
