Harry Wasn't The Only One Who Survived You-Know-Who

Everyone in the Wizard world knows that Harry Potter survived You-Know-Who, while his parents didn't. What everyone doesn't know is that there was another surviver, somehow unheard of. Miranda lives with her horrible grandmother and Grandfather that never lets her have fun. She know exactly what happen to her parents, the effects that it has on her, and to keep it a secret. The exact moment Miranda turns 11 a letter burst through the window and into her hands, excepting her to a Witch Craft & Wizarding school called Hogwarts. For once Miranda thinks she make some friends and have some fun, but hopeing nobody asks her about her personal life.


1. This is where I belong?

I counted down the seconds til I turned 11. While my grandmother and father was asleep I was awake at 7:00 am. "Three, two, one, happy birthday Miranda!", I whispered. I heard a loud crash from downstairs, which I knew wasn't my grandmother even though she's clumsy. A tan streak came flying towards me. I put my hands up to protect my head, I didn't feel anything but a smooth and soft material. I looked in front of me and saw a letter addressed to me. Quickly the envelope opened and read out loud to me

I smiled at the fact that I would get away from this place, but where would I get all these crazy things? I knew I was a witch from the time I could understand words, my mum and dad was killed by You-Know-Who, and I survived. You see my parents used to work for him until they FINALLY realized that what they were doing was wrong. One month after I was born, they were killed.Tap, tap. I looked out my window and saw a huge man with a large beard and a boy about my age with black hair,green eyes, and glasses. The man took out an object that I couldn't identify and in the air wrote ' Bring belongings in a trunk and come downstairs.' Quickly with a smile on my face I packed all my clothes into my trunk. I rushed downstairs and grabbed a paper and pencil.


Dear Grandmother and Father,

 I'm finally going to the magic school you've always told me about. I've hope see you soon.

                                                                  Take care,


I really didn't want to see them again, but that would be rude. Quickly I did a small check list in my head. Trunk with belongings? Check. Letter with the list of needed things? Check. I raced out the with my trunk. The boy smiled at me and I smiled back. Let's hope I can FINALLY make a friend.
