There was a young girl named Lily Evans. She lived with her elder brother Michael, his twin Petunia, and her mother and farther. On lily's 11th Birthday, a strange man was at the door. He asked if he could see Lily alone and she accepted. Then she asked "Is this something to do with my gift?" The man asked "And what gift would that be my dear?" She didn't know why, but she felt safe around this man, and knew that she could trust him. "Well I can do strange things, almost like magic." The man didn't even flinch; it was as if he had heard this comment all the time. "Well that was a very good guess young lady. After all you are a very talented witch. Oh, don't worry…" seeing the look of panic on Lily's face, "There are many more like you, in-fact a whole school-ful. I will go downstairs to tell your parents while you read this letter." Lily was a young girl with bright, long red hair that she always had down. And bright green eyes that always caught your attention. She was a very pretty girl who is very tough and doesn't take any hassle. This is how the letter described her. How did they know what lily was like? Have they been spying on her? Or did they know, because they are magic? She stopped asking herself questions and got back to the letter. It said there were 4 houses.

It said you would also need to buy your supplies and robes for your first year at Hogwarts. She ran downstairs in shock and excitement. Her parents were so proud of her. The next day the man took Lily to buy her supplies. They went to thus pub called The Leakey Cauldron. Tom the barman took them to the back and to Lily's surprise a door way opened. The man's name was Professor Dumbledore and he first took her to buy her robes. The windows were full of different objects and uniforms. All this amazed Lily as they walked past the shop windows. Dumbledore said he had to get something while she was getting her wand so he wouldn't take long. She stepped into a shop that had four boys in it, as well as what looked like the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper smiled at her and said. "You must be Miss Evans. Come in, come in! Albus said he was bringing you. Well wait here while I just sort these boys out." She smiled and waited. All the boys looked like trouble makers to Lily, and she just proved herself right. While the shopkeeper had his back turned, the fattest of the boys picked up a wand and waved it at the shelf. All the long thin boxes were blown off it and were flying around everywhere. The boys were laughing there heads off. Even the one that looked more sensible had a huge grin on his face. Lily felt her cheeks flush with anger. The boy with the grin saw her and he looked scared. He went pale and just stared at her as she glared at anger back. He saw her green eyes flash and backed away a bit more. Before Lily could stop herself she said "Tidy this up or else." The boy with the long black hair stared at her too. Seeing her eyes flash as the other boy had, they silently started cleaning up, looking so pale there friends stopped laughing and stared mouths open at them. The boy with the glasses said "I never thought I'd see the day, Sirius Black listening to a girl!" The fat boy smiled as they turned around and looked at Lily. The fat boy stared at her and Lily couldn't help it but angrily asked "WHAT ARE YOU STARING AT!!!!" The fat boy backed away quickly and started cleaning up himself. But the other boy wasn't that easy. "What a pretty sight! What's your name ginger?" Lily's eyes flashed again and he flinched a little. "My name is Lily Evans and I think you should tidy up with you friends before you get into really big trouble, and you might just make me hit you in a minuet, so watch out." "You know any charms or spells?" "I know the stunning charm and I know one that lifts people up from there ankles. Beat that." The boy went pale and got tidying with his friends. But Lily wasn't stupid. She kept her eyes on them at all times and whenever they misbehaved she got them back to work with a quick sharp glare and made them finish what they had started. But she let one of the guys have a break as he had a bandage round his wrist which was blood-soaked. As he was having a rest he talked to Lily. "Sorry about that. I should have stopped them, I mean, I know better." He smiled weakly at her and she smiled back. She didn't think any of this lot could be polite and yet he was. "What's your name?" "Mine is Remus and I heard your name while you were having that little argument with my friend James over there.'' They both laughed. It was funny and soon the shopkeeper walked into the room and thanked Lily for teaching the boys a lesson. He gave the boys there wands and told them to get on with their business. Remus and Lily said goodbye and she noticed that the boy she was arguing with went red with what looked like jealousy. All she did was grin and gave a sarcastic wave. She went back inside the shop still grinning at her-self for what she had just done. The shopkeeper asked her "Well why don't you try this wand? Blackburn and unicorn hair, 12 inches, very good for hexes." in a big flash Lily knew that she had her wand already. Ollivander said "Well that was quick! That will be five galleons and two sickles." She pulled out the bag of money Dumbledore gave her and pulled out six galleons, got her change and waited outside for him. She saw him come out of a shop with the cutest puppy she had ever seen! He walked over to Lily and said "Happy Birthday!" She felt even better. This was her best birthday ever! She named the puppy Sasha and she loved her to bits. She was already toilet trained and brought Lily her mail, so she was allowed to take her to her new school.
