Elizabeth Jane Evans, or Beth as her family called her, was walking around Diagon Alley alone. Her Mother was busy with Beth's little sister, Carrie, and had dropped Beth off for the day with a small bag of money and a promise to be back at 5:30 to get her. but Beth knew that her mother didn't keep her Promises that much. Beth was about to start her first year at Hogwarts, her father wanted her to be a Slytherin, the house he was in when in school. But beth wanted to be a Gryffindor. Elizabeth was small for her age, and looked much younger then she was. her long curly blonde hair fell to the middle of her back. and her dark blue eyes held sadness and pain.
Ever since her sister was born 5 years ago, Beth had been pushed into the shadows. then her brother, Jacob, was born 3 years ago, it was like Beth was not there. Anthony Evans, Beth's Father, only cared about his son, his heir.
So here She was, all alone in the middle of the street. dressed in a pare if muggle jeans and a red t-shirt. and a black cloak. she started walking, maybe she would find something to do here. I hope! Beth thought as she walked on
Jan 8 2007, 07:02 AM
Willow sighed. Ever since her parent's rather large arguement, Willow had been watching over her sisters. And she was tired. Those two five year olds had way to much energy for Willow's taste. She had finally buggered them off on her brother for the day so she could get out of the house.
And where was she to go? Diagon Alley of course. She smiled into the air and looked around in glee. The whole day to herself, what was she going to do? Then she saw some girl walking down the Alley dresssed almost like a muggle. Whisper wrinkled her nose. She detested muggleborns and anything to do with the muggle world. It was what made her such a good pureblood.
She then saw the girls cloak as an interesting idea. She waited for the girl to pass her, then gave the cloak a sharp pull.
Jan 8 2007, 11:52 AM
Alexa strolled down Diagon Alley, she had been spending a lot of time there lately, perhaps it was because she didn't like home all that much. Let's just say things were a little rocky at the moment but, weren’t they always? It was good to know that the Alley she had come to love was only one floo journey away, even thought it was really on the other side of the world. Right now this was her sanctuary, besides it gave her a change to meet new people before she went to Hogwarts. She loved meeting new people in the Alley it was always…interesting.
She was ripped from her thoughts when it seemed someone was pulled into her, knocking Alexa down.
"Watch where you're going next time," She said rather irritably, not meaning to sound so rude.

Beth felt someone pull on her cloak and she knocked in to a girl.
"I'm Sorry, miss! someone pulled on my cloak, did you see who?" Beth asked the girl, then she saw anther girl behind her who was smirking. "was it you?" she asked
Jan 8 2007, 10:42 PM
Ami smiled at the shop-keeper as she paid for her new ink-pots. The last two had broken, quite sadly, in her bookbag and has soaked the whole thing. Now her bag was pure black, which she dis-liked, but could do nothing about. Wrapping the ink-pots into newspaper she had brought for just that purpose, she tucked them into her old back-pack she was using for the day. Everything she needed for the day was in that back-pack, including all her money. Both muggle and wizarding, notably less of the latter then the former though. Ami made periodic stops at Gringotts to exchange them.
Walking out of the shop, into the slush of Diagon Alley, Ami started to briskly walk down the street, heading for the next shop on her mental list. A black cloak flashed in front of her, and Ami saw a flash of red as someone fell and knocked into someone. Seeing as they were in her way, she stopped. "Is everything okay?" Ami asked the girls.
((Also hope you don't mind I join! And Alexa, that was god-moding. Elizabeth might not notice, or may not care, but most people will. Please don't god-mode))
Jan 8 2007, 11:12 PM
((yeah - what Ami said))
Willow smirked at the girl she had just yanked the cloak on. Before she could open her mouth to laugh at her, another girl came up to them. She did smirk again when the cloak girl finally realized who it must have been to pull on the cloak.
"Yes, that was me. Why are you in muggle clothes in Diagon Alley?" Willow was wearing her normal day robes of a dark red. It set off her brown hair and brown eyes perfectly, she always thought. "You aren't a muggleborn, are you?" She had to know immediantly, if this girl was, she would have to go and disinfect her hands.
As another girls voice made it's way to Willow's ears, she turned and saw what looked to be an older girl. "Of course everythings okay. As long as you're not a muggleborn too." She was definitely feeling snappish today. Things were not going as well as she had hoped.
Jan 8 2007, 11:22 PM
Andrea was hoppingdown Diagon Alley. Not walking, runniging, skipping, or jogging, but hopping. 'Grr..I hate Greg. Older brothers are such a pain.' she thought to herself. Yes, sadly, her brother had cursed her because she had teased him about his latest girlfriend. Making carefull to hop over the dreaded loose brick, she accidently knocked into someone standing with a bunch of other girls.
Jan 8 2007, 11:22 PM
"I'm Sorry, miss! someone pulled on my cloak, did you see who?" said the girl who had knocked you down.
"Oh, its fine just gave me a bit of a fright is all," Alexa smiled, lifting herself up from the ground.
"Yes, that was me. Why are you in muggle clothes in Diagon Alley?" asked the girl who was obviously the cloak puller.
"Is everything okay?" another girl appeared.
"Of course everythings okay. As long as you're not a muggleborn too." Said the puller. Alexa pondered for a moment yes everything was pretty ok, sure her butt hurt but other than that it was all fine.
"Seems alright to me," she added, brushing a blonde curl out of her face.
((OOC: I think I confused everyone I said that Beth, who got pulled by the cloak was then pulled into Alexa. Not purposely by Willow, Alexa just happened to be passing by, so technically that continuing the thread. ))
Jan 8 2007, 11:33 PM
"Oof! Ooops! Sorry." Andrea giggled as she bumped into the girls. She hoped they wouldn't be mad. One of them looked kind of mean to begin with. "I really am sorry but you se..It's a long story, nevermind. What's going on here?" Andrea wasn't to sure that these girls were all on friendly terms.
Jan 9 2007, 03:18 AM
"Muggleborn?" Ami asked, temper starting to rise. "You think that just because I'm muggleborn, I'm not worthy to associate with you?" She said, putting sarcastic emphasis on the word 'worthy'. "I hate people like you. Blood is everything. Oh wait," Ami said, pretending to think about it. "And money."
Then the girl who had run into another girl said that nothing was wrong, thus indicating that she wasn't a muggle. "So I'm guessing that you're a prue-blood freak like her then, hm?" Ami asked, jerking her head in the direction of the other one.
Then, another girl came and bumped into her. But, this one seemed decently nice, so Ami smiled slightly at her. "Hey, and it's fine. No problem, I do that all the time too."
((And technically Alexa, we don't know if Beth moved at all. So, it's still god-moding. You have to wait for that person to react, however the would. She could had fallen towards Willow for all we know.))
Jan 9 2007, 04:36 AM
"So I'm guessing that you're a prue-blood freak like her then, hm?"
asked the girl who had asked if everything was ok.
"Actually no, my blood may be 'pure'" Alexa made air quotes "But I don't think that's what should count," she replied glaring at the girl, she didn't take a liking to people who judged her with out getting their facts straight.
((OOC: Oh right I see where you're coming from now!!! Sorry about the confusion, I'll watch the wording next time
Jan 9 2007, 06:23 AM
Willow rolled her eyes at this girl. Okay, calling all these girls girls was making things confusing. "Alright, I'm Willow Windwhisper." She decided to start off the introductions.
"And I'm saying that because I have a family who hates all things muggle and I would be disinherited if it was found out I was associating with muggleborns." She sneered.
Then another girl joined their little group. "What's wrong with you?" She asked her, a bit confused. "Or do you usually walk down the street running into people?" Willow raised her eyebrows slightly, almost glad this little gathering had happened. It was a way to get rid of some of the stress off her shoulders about everything that had been happening at home.
Jan 9 2007, 06:37 AM
"Alexa Lestero, pleased to meet you all," she smiled. It seemed an odd little group at the moment. She didn't want to make assumptions but, every girl seemed different in one way or another. She supposed that was a good thing really, life would be pretty boring otherwise. She was eager to learn more about these girls, the intrigued her.
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 9 2007, 02:22 PM
"I'm not a Muggleborn!" said Beth, after a while "My Mother would not let me wear my new robes today, I'm Beth Evans" she stopped then asked "is that why you pulled me down? because you thought I was a Muggleborn?!"
Elizabeth had hoped to make some friends today, but with the way things were going she wasn't sure now.
Jan 9 2007, 10:08 PM
"Oh," Ami said and blushed heavily. What a great start to the beginning of the new term/year. Great. The girl probably hates her now. "I've just gone through tough stuff with..." Ami paused, before saying, "People." Better not to tell them what Raine had said to me when she found out. It is actually kinda personal. "And, I'm sorry, Alexa."
Ami started choking when one of the girls introduced herself as a Windwhisper. "Are you joking?!" She asked incredulously. "But that means you're related to Raine! Oh god." Ami blanched suddenly. "I-I..." No excuse came to mind. Nothing at all.
"Wait." Something Willow had said sparked something in her mind. "Is that why-" Ami had made to say something, but refrained herself from, after looking around at the other three girls. "Well, uh, I'm Ami." She said, giving her name out. Maybe Raine had told Willow something... Nah, too unlikely.
Jan 9 2007, 11:10 PM
"And, I'm sorry, Alexa."
"That's alright, I just don't like people judging me on false knowledge," She sighed. She was rather tired of people thinking that there was only one type of pure blood. She didn't completely hate everyone who thought having pureblood made you better than everyone else thought, there were just certain people.
"But that means you're related to Raine! Oh god," Alexa raised an eyebrow this girl seemed just a little bit paranoid. The name Raine did ring a bell though, that's right Ivy had mentioned her, she seemed nice. She shook her head and turned back to the group.
Jan 9 2007, 11:51 PM
Willow raised an eyebrow. "Yes, I am related to Raine. She's the oldest of all us cousins. So she thinks she's always in charge." Willow wouldn't say outloud that she was glad to not be the one in charge, it seemed like way to much work. She would much rather be able to do nothing, like right now.
She turned to Beth and sighed. "Well, what did you expect? Wearing muggle clothes and walking around in wizard community is bound to get you noticed. And not all of it would be good. You had to know that. Though I suppose if it was your mother's fault...." She trialed off. "Mothers can be rather annoying so I guess I will forgive you." She smirked, knowing how concieted that sounded and not caring in the least.
Jan 10 2007, 04:19 AM
Xavier walked down through the Alley with a little pretense. he had only been here once before and that was a while ago with his father. His mind started to wander as the memories washed over him. He had been 8 years old and his father had brought him here when he had needed a few things. He said it was father/son day. Xavier treasured that day, it was one of the last days he had spent with his father. With his thoughts filled with his father Xavier almost missed the gaggle of girls standing in the middle of the walkway. At the last second he stopped walking almost running into one of them. He took a deep breath, his chisled features stiffening slightly. His sea green eyes sparkled a bit and his dirty blonde hair fell over those very eyes just a bit.
Jan 10 2007, 06:09 AM
Willow was waiting for the other girl to reply when someone almost ran into her. She spun towards them, ready to yell, when she realized how cute this boy was. For it was a boy with hair that came down in such a way she wanted to push it off his forehead to get a better look into those eyes.
Shaking herself, she frowned. "Who are you?" She asked bluntly. Even if he was cute, almost running her over was not a good way to start any conversation.
She sighed and tried again. "Not paying attention, huh? Or do you make a point to run into girls all the time?" She smirked a bit. She had loads of boy cousins so it didn't phase her in the least to be talking with one in the tone she was. Teasing was her favorite thing to do among her male cousins.
Jan 10 2007, 07:15 AM
Alexa smiled when someone almost ran into Willow. She thought for sure Willow would give it too them but, she was wrong. She got a look at the person when Willow turned around, it was a boy. Finally…Alexa thought to herself. She hadn't seen too many boys around mainly girls, not that she didn't like girls but, she had so many guy friends back in Australia, she missed having them around.
She smiled to herself, at least now I know that there may be home a Hogwarts for a girl like me, yet she thought. She got along much better with boys, or she thought that was the case from what she was told. I mean she hated shopping for ages, why couldn't people just go into the shop and get what they wanted, then walk out? It's not like she didn’t where skirts or dresses or anything but, what was the point in getting them dirty? She herd Willow make a comment and decided to come to the boy's aid.
"Hi I'm Alexa, are you going to Hogwarts for the next sorting?" she asked trying to lighten this up.
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 10 2007, 01:30 PM
Beth smiled at Willow "thanks" she replied then she turned to the boy "hey, I'm Beth. you know you really should watch where your going" she said smiling slightly. it was funning that because she fell down they were all meeting today, all thanks to Willow. maybe she would make some friends today after all.
Jan 11 2007, 03:45 AM
"I know what you mean," Ami said quietly to Alexa. "It's exactly what pure-bloods did to me once they found out that I was a muggle. They shunned me and rejected me, just because of that. That's why I'm kinda prejudiced against pure-bloods. I'm sorry."
Ami slightly laughed at what Willow said. "Yea, Raine's like that. Always in charge," and always hurting others. But she kept that to herself. Yet again, no need to make that public knowledge, it'll be better in the long run to keep it quiet.
Another person. What was with all these ickles? Ami conviently managed to forget that she was exactly the same at the beginning of her first term. Running about, running into people, meeting people. The business of it, yet the happiness. She smiled at the boy. "Ami," she said, nodding at him. Then she heard what Alexa asked and laughed. "Oh, it's grand there. I'm already sorted, last term. Gryffindor all the way." Ami said happily with a large smile. "Oh yea."
Jan 11 2007, 03:55 AM
Xavier glanced up from beneath his long lashes and realized that he has almost run into a bunch of girls. Just what he needed. He was so bad at talking to girls and now he had to face a whole group of them, although from the looks of it they were not on friendly terms. One of the girls began talking to him and he set his green eyes on her
"Who are you? Not paying attention, huh? Or do you make a point to run into girls all the time?"
He inhaled adn hoped he did not say anything stupid when he opened his mouth.
"I'm . . ." he cleared his throat, "I'm Xavier and I am sorry I was not paying attention I was sort of lost in thought. As for running into girls . . . I try not to make it a habit. Do you make it a habit of standing in the middle of the walkway?"
He smiled at her, revealing brilliantly white teeth. His sea green eyes sparkled as he turned to the next girl who began to speak to him.
"Nice to meet you Alexa and yes I am going to be going to Hogwarts next term."
Before he could take a breath another girl introduced herself to him.
"Hi Beth and I will do my best from now on."
Xavier flashed a smile at them hoping it would cover for his almost running into them. He did not want to insult any of them. He stuffed his hands in his pockets, looked at the ground, shuffled his feet and looked at the ground.
Jan 11 2007, 06:28 AM
Willow felt a wall crumbling down. This boy definitely didn't seem to be like her cousins. Her cousins would have been making some remark back at her, but this boy was apologizing.
She shrugged. "Well, okay. And yes, I do normally stand out in the middle of the alley. It gets me noticed." She wondered what he would say to that. Any of her cousins would make some sly remark about how it would take a lot more than that to get her noticed, but she had a feeling this boy wasn't about to say something like that.
"I'm Willow, by the way. Though most call me Will." She refrained from mentioning that she had yet to tell any other other girls this, but Xavier was a completely different case.
She looked at the boy and hoped he wasn't related somehow. There seemed to be so many Windwhispers coming out of the wood work lately that she wasn't sure who was offlimits and who she could look at appreciantly.
"All right, let's get out of the street and get the hated question over with. What house?" She smirked. "I'm for Slytherin myself. What about all of you?" She walked off to the side of the Alley, wondering who would follow.
Jan 11 2007, 07:11 AM
Xavier listened as the girl he almost bumped into began to talk. He brought his eyes up to meet her when she had commented on how she usually stood in alleyways he smiled and spoke the first thing that came to his mind
"Well I guess if that is way you wish to be noticed to be noticed fine by me but really it doesn't exactly put out a good vibe, makes you look desperate for attention. Not that you are desperate." He added hastily then looked back at the ground.
She introduced herself as Willow, which he thought to be an odd name for a girl who was nothing like a willow tree. This girl was tall and sturdy without her limbs drooping every which way. She mentioned getting out of the street and he thought that a good idea, he was not one for that sort of thing unlike herself. He followed her listening to her talk about what house she was interested in. He almost laughed when he heard Slytherin. He could have guessed that easily. He reached the sidewalk and looked up at her
"Slytherin. High ambitions don't you think? Think a girl with name Willow can make it in a house where you have you be tough and strong? As for what house I am looking at? Well that is just a secret you will have to find out for yourself."
He winked at her in the hopes that it would help to change the subject. The smile that followed was dazzling and sweet. So far she hadn't kicked him out or stopped talking to him so he figured he would just keep saying what he was saying. This was the first time a girl had not walked away from him and his snide comments. Hmm well she was looking to get into Slytherin after all. Mayber . . . he shook his head at the thought and turned his attentions back to Willow.
"Anyways, do you have any family at Hogwarts? You know brothers or sisters?"
He waited patiently for the answer with his hands still stuffed into his pants pockets.
Jan 11 2007, 07:39 AM
Willow grinned at the boy as he followed her. "Of course I'm not desperate! I don't need to be!" She rolled her eyes slightly. "Though you are welcome to think so, doesn't make any difference to me." She made it to the side of the alley and leaned against one of the stores walls.
Will regarded Xavier carefully, "So, I'm to guess, huh? Maybe, Hufflepuff?" She smirked, trying it out. She liked how the smirk felt, completely right. It was a mark of a true Slytherin, after all. A smirk was worth a thousand words, and none of them good. Well, maybe they could be.
She shook her head and snickered. "Well, maybe not. Suppose I better let the hat make that decision."
At his last question, she watched him put his hands into his pockets, and slightly raised an eyebrow. But it seemed his thing to do. so she answered the question.
"Well, not really a brother or sister. Just an older cousin. Though I do have a twin brother." She shrugged. "We are both going to Hogwarts this year, along with my other cousins, Damien, Raven, Diamond and a few others. And of course I'll get into Slytherin. After all, my whole family is in Slytherin. That's where my cousin is right now." She smiled. Her smile wasn't nearly as stunning as his, but it was close. When she actually chose to smile. "What about you?"
Jan 11 2007, 10:46 AM
Alexa followed Willow and the boy, Xavier? Off the middle of the Alley. She knew this question was bound to come up and she didn't particularly want to get into an argument over it. Willow seemed nice after all, she thought they'd get along but, they seemed very different. She wondered id she would ever get along with anyone who wanted to be in Slytherin, other than Ivy, who was already there. Alexa tuned back in they seemed to be talking about families now, she heard Willow mention Raine again, it seemed ;like everyone knew her in one way or another. She was grateful that Xavier had changed from an uncomfortable subject.
"I don't have any brothers or sisters, I hate being an only child," Alexa laughed bitterly "But, I've made lot's of friends here in Diagon so It shouldn't be too bad," she smiled
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 02:20 PM
Beth fallowed the others, there was no way she was going to walk around by herself. she quickened her pace to ketch up with them.
"my Brother and Sister are 5 and 3, they won't be at Hogwarts for a while" she replied
Jan 11 2007, 02:50 PM
Blair walked out of the Robe store. She had to get new robes for school; she could never wear those old raggedy ones she had before. A group of people caught her eye, and she walked by, while trying not to let them realize she was eavesdropping on her conversation.
She heard them mention something about what houses they wanted to be sorted into, and smiled. Finally, some new students! Blair hadn't made a lot of friends yet, and she really wanted to get to know some people before she started school.
She walked up to the group and smiled. "Hi, I just heard you talking about what houses you wanted to be in...hope you don't mind if I join in the conversation!"
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 03:21 PM
Beth turned to the girl and smiled "not at all, I'm Beth Evans!" She said "are you starting hogwarts this year to?"
Jan 11 2007, 03:27 PM
Blair felt like dancing. Someone friendly!
"Yeah, I'm pretty excited about it. My parents have been telling me about it for weeks; but of course, they were too busy to come today. Oh well; So, what house are you hoping for? My parents are hoping for Slytherin, just like the rest of my family. I'm just happy I got in Hogwarts period. Oh, sorry, I'm Blair Turner."
Blair blushed; whenever she was nervous she had a tendency to ramble on and on. Beth probably though she was insane or something.
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 03:33 PM
Beth laughed "My dad wants me to be a Slytherin, but I'd like to be a Gryffindor. what about you?"
Beth smiled, she thought that Blair was nice. and could see them becoming friends.
Jan 11 2007, 03:39 PM
"Well, if I don't get in Slytherin, I'll probably be disowned or something. I know it's weird for me to say, but I wouldn't mind being in Gryffindor either. You're the first person I've ever met, besides me, that wants to be in Slytherin or Gryffindor!" Blair laughed.
Blair grinned and said, "It'd be great if we ended up in the same house; I'm nervous about having to live with a bunch of strangers!"
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 03:47 PM
"Same here, I thought I was the only one!" Beth replied "I hope we do too! it would be nice to know someone at Hogwarts!" Beth had never said it but she was vary nervous about going to Hogwarts. She didn't have any cousins there, so she wouldn't know anyone. she just hoped Blair and Her would be in the same house.
Jan 11 2007, 03:51 PM
"So," Blair began, "How have you been enjoying Diagon Alley? Isn't it amazing?"
Blair came to Diagon Alley occasionally with her parents, when they weren't too busy with "business deals" to spend time with her. Still, every time she came, she found something new to enjoy, not to mention watching all the people.
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 04:06 PM
"Oh, yes. I've been here before with my Mother, but she was to busy with my sister to come today" said Beth "what about you? and where are your parents?"
Beth looked down at the watch that her Uncle David gave her for her birthday, it read 12:45 she sighed, today was going to be a long day
Jan 11 2007, 04:12 PM
Blair grimaced. "My parents had some meetings and such with their business to tend to today. They've brought me some before, but today they felt I would be ok on my own. They're really busy most of the time, so I've kind of learned to fend for myself." She shrugged.
"How old is your sister? I've always wanted a brother or sister; I'm the only child. My parents couldn't ever have kids, so they adopted me from Italy and I guess just didn't want anymore, but I always thought it would be fun to have other kids in the house."
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 04:20 PM
"Her name is Carrie and she 5, I have a Brother too, he's 3. name's Jacob. I wish I was a only child! ever since they were born, I've been pushed into the shadows" Beth sighed "all my father cares about is his Heir"
Her Father was your typical Slytherin pure-blood.
Jan 11 2007, 04:25 PM
Blair looked sympathetically at Beth.
"You'd think my father would be like that. All I ever hear at my house is 'pureblood this' and 'pureblood that'. That's why I'm surprised there's no boy in my family. I do have some distant cousins in America who can carry on the family name, though, so it's not as much pressure on me, or my father."
While they were on the subject of families, some words her father had said before she left this morning came to her mind.
"If you're father's anything like mine, I'm supposing he warned you about hanging out with 'the wrong sort' while in Diagon Alley? I bet my dad told me thirty times this morning, 'now Blair, find the nice, pureblood girls and stick with them. I won't have my only daughter hanging around with muggle-borns!'" Blair attempted to imitate her dad's voice at this last part. He really made her mad sometimes.
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 04:33 PM
"oh Yes, I got the speech!" Beth smiled then started to mock her father from this morning "I think it was something like 'Elizabeth! if I hear that you have been in the company of the wrong sort, such as Mudbloods, I will ship you off to Beauxbatons!' I don't think my Mother would let him though, she said that I was going to Hogwarts and that's finale, I hope"
she didn't want to go to Beauxbatons, she did have a cousin there, and she did not like her one bit.
Jan 11 2007, 04:40 PM
Blair stuck out her tongue. "Yuck, Beauxbatons! I met some girls from there at a party once; they were so stuck-up!" She laughed then, and said, "Of course, sometimes I think that's the kind of people my dad wants me to hang out with. I don't really fit into my role as 'daddy's little girl', and it makes him so mad!"
Subconsciously, Blair scratched her stomach. Her father had been furious when she came home a week ago with a dragon tattoo stretching from her pelvis to her ribcage; of course, making her father mad was part of the reason she got the thing.
"That's one reason I'm looking forward to going to Hogwarts so much. I can't wait to be able to do my own thing, and hopefully get out from under all of the 'pureblood' crap."
Elizabeth Jane Evans
Jan 11 2007, 05:13 PM
"I know! me too. I've never been a 'daddy's girl' ether. but my Father didn't want a daughter at all. just a boy" said Beth "the only time he wants me to be his 'little girl' is if he's trying to impress his rich friends"
"I can't wait for Hogwarts! no more boring pure-blood party's! and no more Father!" she said, smiling "I hate those party's! they make me wear these really pricey robes that are two sizes to small and walk around all night saying stuff like 'Hello sir, I'm vary delighted to see you' I'm ssooo happy to be going to Hogwarts!"
Jan 11 2007, 06:06 PM
Blair laughed at the excited tone of Beth's voice, and the way she described the parties.
"You're absolutely right. That's the problem, mostly, with the pureblood crowd. All they care about are impressions, and what people think. It's really annoying."
Blair looked down the street and saw Ollivander's wand store, which made her think about something else.
"I can't wait to get my wand!" she said, turning to Beth. "My parents said I couldn't have a 'real' wand until I got accepted to Hogwarts."
Jan 11 2007, 06:29 PM
Xavier smiled at Willow when she began trying to guess what house he would be in. She was a piece of work this one. He was glad that she did not mind his comments. She was the first girl who didn't mind. He liked that. As she talked about her family Xavier's eyes almost bugged out of his head.
"Sounds like an army instead of a family to me. I am the only one heading to Hogwarts this year. I might have be the last one too."
As he finished talking Alexa spoke of her family and he turned his green gaze her way. He smiled warmly and winked at Willow. Another girl walked into the mix and he shook his head. The new girl and Beth he thought her name was began gibbering together about things he did not understand. He turned to Willow and smiled again at her. He brought his hand up and swiped a strand of hair from his eyes.
"What do you think?"
He nodded his head towards the girls.

With a grin, Blair agreed with Beth. "I love Quidditch. I've thought about playing for the house team, but I'm not sure at this point. Depends how good everyone else is! At least it'll be fun to watch."
Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a guy nod his head toward Beth and her, and say something to the girl he was talking to. 'Oh well,' she thought, 'he'll say something if he wants.'
Turning back to Beth, she said, "I've been watching the for the letter everyday; I can't wait until it finally comes!"

Beth also saw the boy nod to them then talk to Willow. but she just turned back to Blair "Mother said my letter should come soon, seeing as my birthday is in a week" Beth replied "My sister want to come with me, Carrie got mad when Mother said she couldn't" Beth laughed as she remembered what her sister had said "why can't I go with Bethie to school! I'll be good and no one will see me! please" she had begged.

When Beth told her about her sister wanting to come to Hogwarts, Blair couldn't help but laugh.
"That would be so cute; but I'm sure you'd be annoyed after about five minutes! Not to mention, little kids have a way of telling Mommy and Daddy every single thing they see. Somehow, I don't think you want a miniature spy following you around all the time."

Beth laughed "you've got that right! If I do one thing wrong, she runs to Mum!" she replied "I think that she will be the death of me one day! she's just so annoying!"
"so what class are you excited to started? I can't for charms and flying!" said beth

"Definitely Flying," replied Blair. "I think Transfiguration would be cool too. I wanna learn how to transfigure my father into a llama." She giggled at the mental image.
"I've heard so many things about Hogwarts; I can't wait to see the Great Hall. The Charmed Ceiling sounds awesome." Blair's parents and their friends had been filling her in on Hogwarts as much as possible, so she would know what to expect. It was hard to believe half of the things they said, but she couldn't wait to get to Hogwarts and find out.
