My story


I do not o...:::CRY:::...own Harry Potter. But I really love Harry Potter! Now this is a story of my life...! For All Gryffindors! On with the show! Let's just say that this is a story that I won't use my real name!


I was sitting in my bedroom in Tokyo Japan...Well let me tell you my name. Akiko (Bright Light)  Shina (Virtuous). So as I said before I was sitting in my bedroom (June 11,2001) and I heard this clicking at my window. Let me tell you what I saw I saw a barn owl that was holding a letter. It was addressed to me in a very strange way. I let the owl in to my room and it dropped the letter on my bed and then left. I picked up the letter and I read...

Akiko Shina

Brown Desk

Silver Room

771 Green Tea ave.




I was like 'How strange is this?' So I opened the letter and it read:



(Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc., Chf. Warlock, Supreme Mugwump, International Confed. of Wizards)

I took both of these letters downstairs and I called, "Mom, Dad are you home?" I heard two voices comming towards me. I heard, "What's wrong sweetie?" I turned around and I saw my dad and mom. I said, "Mommy Daddy I just got a letter from some school that is saying that they are a school of witchcraft and wizardry. The name is Hogwarts..." "Oh sweetie I am so proud of you. I am glad that you got into that school," said my dad. I asked, "What are you talking about? I am not a witch." I looked at my mom and she said, "Well sweetie yes you are. We are Wizards. We have always thought that you would be accepted into Hogwarts. We went there! Now we need to go and get you your supplies." I stood there stunned and I said, "Well alright whatever you say." They took my hands and we apprated to Diagon Alley.

*~*Diagon Alley*~*

Mommy dragged me to Olivander's wand shop as my dad went to Flourish and Blotts. We walked inside and mommy said, "Mr. Olivander, are you here?" We heard a gasp and a crash. I said, "Mommy what was that?" She just shrugged her shoulders. We heard, "Takara (treasure) Shina (virtuous). Is that you? I have been so looking foreword to your return. Is this girl your daughter?" I watched as this old man came out from behind walls of boxes. I gulped and mommy put her hand on my shoulder. I said, "My name is Akiko (bright light)." The man said, "You look just like your mother. I am Mr. Olivander. I think that you are here to receive a wand. Am I correct?" I nodded and he took my hand and we walked away. I said, "Mommy where's he taking me???" She just smiled and watched as we left from her view. The man said, "Now we need to find the wand for you..." He let go of me and he began to hand me wand after wand.

*~*30 min Later*~*

He handed me a black leather case and I took out the wand. I felt a surge of warm energy fill my body. I said, "This is the one! Sir what type of want is this?" He said, "Moon dust, Martian Gold, Jovan Jade, Mercurian Ice, Venusian Love, Spirit Phoenix tail feather. The wand itself is made of quartz crystal. This is very peculiar. Now let's get back to your mother." I shrugged and he took my hand and we went back to the front of the shop. I saw my mommy sitting on a stool sleeping. I walked to her and I touched her hand. I watched her amber eyes look at me. She said, "How much Mr. Olivander?" He said, "For you, Takara, Six Galleons." She nodded and handed the man the coins and he said, "I expect greatness from you Akiko." I looked at him and I nodded and then I took mommy's hand and we left.

*~*Leaky Cauldron*~*

I saw my daddy talking to someone and he said, "And here's my family. Takara and Akiko." Mommy asked, "Kazuo (Man of Peace) who are these people?" I hid behind mommy's legs and I saw three people. He looked down at me and I said, "Papa why are these people here?"
