Okay so I don't really know where I'm going with this story so please bear with me.
Disclaimer~ If I was J. K. Rowling why would I write a story on here when I could merely write another book?
Chapter 1- The Discovery
Hello My name is Mairea Corlan and I am just a normal everyday Wiccan. Yes, Wiccan. For those of you who don't know what that is I suggest you look it up. I have long wavy blonde hair with unnaturally, natural, black streaks through it. Yes I was born this way. I've never died my hair in my life. I also have gray eyes that sometimes turn silver when I'm really upset. I have ghostly white skin and I'm short for my age.
It was currently the middle of August and a very hot day so I decided to stay in my room where it was nice and cool.
I was trying out a new ritual that I found in my book of shadows when my younger sister, Kernae, burst into my room. "Mairea! Come Quick! There's some strange man that came to talk to you!" She yelled excitedly breaking me of my concentration.
"Kernae! I'm in the middle of something important!" I yelled angrily. 'Damn! I'm gonna have to start all over.' I glared angrily at my younger sister but she still stared at me in excitement. "Oh bugger. What does the old coot want to talk to me for?"
"Don't know, But mum says to come downstairs." She said before she ran back out the way she came in.
I groaned in frustration before getting up and following my sister to the living room where my mother sat nervously on the couch across from the chair the "Strange man" was sitting in.
"Mum why don't you come get me next time? I was trying something new." I grumbled as I sat down next to her on the couch.
She smiled nervously before introducing me to our guest. "Mairea this is Albus Dumbledore. Albus this is my daughter Mairea." I smiled politely and shook his outstretched hand.
"Hello Mairea it is a pleasure to finally meet you. Your mother talks about you and Kernae a lot." Dumbledore said politely.
"Um…Thank you…" I replied awkwardly.
"Unfortunately it was not my intention to come personally but your case intrigued me. That and it is somewhat a personal matter as well."
"My case?" I asked in confusion.
"Yes. You are extremely talented in ways my kind could only dream of being." He replied kindly.
"What do you mean your kind? I do believe it is our kind Albus." My mother said annoyed. Dumbledore merely chuckled at this.
"Tis true. My apologies Kallie." Dumbledore said still chuckling.
"What are you talking about?" I asked annoyed that I had been slightly left out of the conversation.
"Mairea have you ever done something odd? Something you couldn't quite explain?" He asked.
"Yea. Everyday." I said thinking about the ritual I had just been trying to perform.
"No no. I mean something that wasn't related to your Wiccan rituals?" He said rephrasing his question. I slowly nodded unsure of what he was really trying to get at. "You're a witch Mairea."
"Well no shit Sherlock." I said rolling my eyes at his statement.
"No Mairea. He isn't talking about being Wiccan. This is something completely different." My mother stated quietly.
"And so we reach the reason why I am here. I am here to inform you that you have been accepted to attend Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You're mother and father also attended this school at your age, and your sister will as well."
"Albus is the headmaster of Hogwarts." My mother stated as an afterthought.
It took a minute or two for everything to finally sink in and then the anger came. "You lied to me!" I screamed standing up angrily and turning to glare at my mother.
"No Mairea! The wizarding world wasn't a safe place for an 11 year old. I was only trying to protect you." She said in a defensive tone.
"But you could have at least told me." I said in a bare whisper feeling betrayed.
"Do not blame your mother or father for hiding this from you Mairea. When you were born the wizarding world was in chaos. There was a great war waging between our kind. At the time it was the right decision for all of you. But the war ended 8 years ago, and your mother has agreed to let you attend Hogwarts which is under my protection." Dumbledore said smoothly trying to help me understand my parents reasoning.
"But if the war ended 8 years ago then my mother or father could have told Kernae and me about it years ago." I said stubbornly.
"I got it Mairea and I'm sorry. Now I suppose, Albus, that you have brought Mairea's list of school supplies." My mother said smoothly changing the subject.
"Ah yes of course, Here you go. Also, I have your Gringotts key. You'll notice when you get there that the contents have quadrupled since your last visit." Dumbledore said handing over the list and the key with a mischievous twinkle in his eyes.
"Uncle Albus you didn't!" My mother exclaimed in surprise.
"Whoa! Uncle?" I exclaimed in shock
"What else was I supposed to do with my own money?" he asked innocently.
"Will someone please explain that uncle comment!" I yelled in annoyance.
"My father, your grandfather, is Aberforth Dumbledore. Albus' brother. By the way uncle does father still live in Hogsmeade?" My mother asked curiously.
"Yes he still lives and works at the Hog's Head. Perhaps you should visit him before Mairea leaves for school." He suggested.
"I suppose I will." My mother said thoughtfully.
"Wait leaves? What kind of school is this? Where is it located?" I asked worriedly. 'I don't want to leave mom and Kernae.' I thought sadly.
"It's a boarding school sweetie, located in the far north. Don't worry you'll be able to write to us and come home for holidays." My mum said absently.
"Oh…" I said quietly.
"Well its time for me to be going. It was nice to see you again Kallie." Uncle Albus said as he stood up. "I'm looking forward to seeing you at school Mairea." Then he left.
"Um…Mom…" I said hesitantly.
"Do you think we could buy a couple new Wicca books? I mean if I'm going off to boarding school I probably wont be able to buy them myself." I explained quietly.
"Of course we can. How about tomorrow when we go to Diagon Alley to pick up your school supplies we pick up some Wicca books on our way home?" Mom said making me smile brightly.
"Will I be going to Hogwarts too?" Kernae asked from the doorway to the Kitchen.
"Of course dear," Mom started making Kernae squeal, "In two years when you're 11." Mom finished wiping the smile off Kernae's face.
"But I want to go now! With Mairea!" Kernae whined.
"Your not old enough sweetheart." Kernae glared at mum before stomping off into the kitchen.
I giggled at Kernae before heading back upstairs to start the ritual I was working on over again.
There ya go there's the first chapter. If you hadn't already guessed this story is starting two years before the Harry Potter books. When Harry is 9 years old. Kernae is also 9 years old. Please let me know what you think and I'll update soon. Promise.
Chapter 2- Diagon Alley and Platform 9 ¾ coming soon!
