Chapter 1: Finally!
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Chapter One


Finally, my parents said yes. I’ve been begging them to let me go to Hogwarts for ever. My best friend Natalie has been going to Hogwarts since she was eleven, but my parent thought I was to young to move to England alone. They just don’t understand, well most parents can’t. Only cool ones like Natalie’s. I didn’t tell Natalie yet because I knew that she had already had her latte` and if I told her now she would go crazy and scream her head off into my ear, and blow out my ear drum. Then I would have to get a hearing aid. So personally, I think you can see why I haven’t called her yet today. I plan to catch her in the morning before she has had her latte, because she goes crazy after she has had it. Seriously crazy. She is insane as it is, but since she drinks latté’s with a lot of caffeine in them she goes crazy bouncing off the walls probably running around Hogwarts.

         Natalie is crazy, insane, mental, and hyper, but I still adore her.  She is like my sister and has been for as long as I can remember. In kindergarten we both felt left out so we started to hang out together, although in kindergarten we wouldn’t call it ‘hanging out’. Natalie and I are both witches, and we realized it in second grade. We were swinging on the swings at the park across the street from my house. We were having a contest of who could swing the highest when out of nowhere I fell right through the swing. I got up from the pile of twigs I had landed in painfully and we went to go look at the swing. I thought I had broken it but it was perfectly fine. I was a bit weirded out, so I thought we should just go home and play at my house. Right when we were about to cross the street Natalie grabbed my hand and told me not to cross. I listened to her because that’s what friends do; they always listen to what each other have to say. About half of a second later a car came flying, and I mean really flying down the road. If Natalie hadn’t told me not to cross we both would have been killed. Later when we got to my house Natalie told me that she had had a vision that that car was coming.      


Strange things kept happening to us until we found out that we were witches. We had no idea that we were witches because no one in our families had been a wizard or witch ( at least no one that we had known of) so it was big news. Then we found out about Hogwarts. We were both perplexed, and couldn’t wait to go. When Natalie’s mom said yes she went crazy (as usual) and we were both so happy. But then my mom, of course my mom had to say no. Natalie was already there when she heard that I couldn’t go, but since my parents said that I could go when I was older Natalie just stayed and waited for me.


Well finally after five years of begging my parents said I was old enough to go! I am so happy and I can’t wait! Oh yeah, and by the way my name is Brett. Yeah I know, go ahead and say it, you think Brett is a boys name right? Well for your info it can be a boys of girls name. Just then my little brother’s voice penetrated my flashback.


“Get up lazy! You’re going to some dumb school for freaks so you better start packing, mom says” shrieked my brother Clarik


“Who died and made you king?” I asked sassily


“I said, mom said, sheesh,”said Clarik in his annoyed tone.


I just laughed at him. He hated it when I laughed at him, but to bad for him because that’s exactly why I did it.


The morning day while packing I was about to call Natalie and give her the good news when the phone rang. I picked up the phone and said hello.


“Hey girl! Its Natalie if you haven’t yet figured that out,” Said Natalie.


“Whoa….I was just about to call you,” I said


“Uh…Duh...that’s why I called…..I had a vision that you were going to call, so I decided to beat you to the punch,” Natalie said like it was obvious.


“Oh, yeah, right, I knew that,” I laughed


“So what were you going to tell me?” Natalie yawned.


Perfect I thought, she hasn’t had her latte`.


“Well,” I paused, “I’ve got some good news.”


“Yeah,” said Natalie eagerly, “go on.


“Ok so, my mom finally said I was old enough to go to Hogwarts!” I exclaimed.


“Ohemgee!” shouted Natalie, “that is so awesome! I can’t wait for you to come! We can hang out everyone because no doubt you’ll be put in Gryffindor!” shouted Natalie excitedly.


“Yeah, I know I can’t wait either,” I said.


“Well, I gotta go, Marisa is complaining that I have been on the phone to long,” said Natalie, “Bye! See ya soon!”


“Bye Nat!” I said.


Then I hung up. I wish I was there with Natalie now. It would be much better than having to wait here for two days before you can leave. Even if it is only two days I am very impatient, and I know it. Honestly I don’t care. I am a lot of things that I shouldn’t be and I don’t care. I am insane (although not as insane as Natalie) and I am actually proud of being insane. I am also lazy and I could care less about what other people think about that. If they have a problem with that they can tell that to my face. Also I don’t usually care how I look, unless a cute guy is around. Naturally, I am kind of a dork. My hair is frizzy and curly, and I have glasses with thick black frames. Although I like my glasses, they are a bit dorky. But as I said before I don’t care unless there is a cute boy, and we all know that there are not many of those in the world. But hopefully there will be at least some good looking boys at Hogwarts.


Sometimes I wish I had Natalie’s hair. In fact, I wish it more than sometimes, I wish it a lot. Her hair is wavy, but not curly or pin straight. She has light brown roots but her hair is naturally highlighted blonde. If she curled it, it would stay curled, and if she straightened it, it would stay straight. She had the perfect hair that everyone wanted. All I can do with my hair is keep it as its frizzy, kinky self. But on special occasions I used a special defrizz gloss that was super expensive.


Ok now back to packing. Sheesh I get off topic pretty easily.


Two hours later I finished packing. My parents had gotten me an owl that I had named Jarred, they had gotten me my school books, but I still had to get my wand.


“I’ll get one tomorrow before we leave,” I thought.


I still couldn’t believe I was going to the one and only Hogwarts.
