Ch. 2 Learning and Diagon Alley
We sat down on the sofa. Ms. Mcgonagal sat on the chair to the left of the sofa as the rest of the family sat on various chairs and on the floor, the tv was off.
"Faith what I am about to tell you may shock you. I am a professor at a school called Hogwarts School of witchcraft or wizardry. Faith you are a witch and have been accepted to Hogwarts."
We sat in silence for a few minutes not knowing what to say. A booming laugh broke the silence we all turned to Uncle Em.
"Well thats not suprising!"
"What are you talking about Em?" Edward said pinching the bridge of his nose.
"Well she has weird things happen around her alot. I knewshe couldn't turn my hair pink without me hearing her"
We all laughed even Mcgonagall had a smile pulling at the edges of her mouth.
"that is what is called accidental magic. most exhibit it by age 6. Some can exhibit it as soon as age 3" She explained
"Thats our Faith" Esme said
"Well Ms. Mcgonagall what do we need to do so she can attend hogwarts?" Carlisle asked. I couldnt help but smile.
"Well I have her letter here, enclosed is a list of what she will need. I can take her and anyone who wishes to accompany her to Diagon Alley. There we will go to Gringotts the wizard bank where we will retrieve her money and buy her supplies. After buying her supplies I will bring you back then on september first she will need to be at Kings Cross Station on Platform 9 3/4 no later than 10:45 the train will leave at 11. Mrs. Molly Weasley has happily agreed to meet you at the station to show you how to get on the Platform.:
"wow" was all I could say. Professor Mcgonagall handed me my letter and I opened it and read it.

I was so excited to go shopping.
"who will be accompanying Ms. Summers" It was decided Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa, would be going with me. Professor Mcgonagall had us hold on to a book and we were off. It felt like a roller coaster ride. I felt queezy, so when we hit the ground I got up and stumbled to a trash can losing the contents of my stomach. Grandpa came over and heldmy hair rubbing circles on my back. Professor Mcgonagall offered me a liquid she said was an anti-nausea potion. I took it and started to feel better. She lead the way to the bankit was beautiful white marble that shined in the sunlight.
We walked to the doors two goblins (as I found out) bowed and opened the doors. We walked inside to another set of doors, a poem was engraved on them
"Enter, Stranger, But Take Heed,
Of What Awaits The Sin Of Greed,
For Those Who Take, But Do Not Earn,
Must Pay Most Dearly In Their Turn.
So If You Seek Beneath Our Floors,
A Treasure That Was Never Yours,
Theif You Have Been Warned, Beware
Of Finding More Than Treasure There."
"Goblins are not a creature to be crossed Ms. Summers. Be patient in here."Professor Mcgonagall stated. I swallowed and advertedmy eyes to the floor. My dad put his arm around my shoulders and mom took my hand.
"Hello Minerva. Another Muggleborn?"
"Not really, I have with me Young Ms. Summers"
"Ah Summers. Yes that vault hass not been opened for a while. Just a minute" The Goblin walked off and was back a few moments later. "Here is your key Ms. Summers, I shall take you there." He had us follow him to a cart. "In Please"
We got into the cartand took off, I burried my facein dads shirt. We stopped and he picked me up and set me on the ground by the vault still holding me.
"Key please" I handed him my key and he opened the vault, inside was piles of money.
"There are 29 Bronze Knuts to a Sickle and 17 Silver Sickles to a Gold Galleon so 493 Knuts to a Galleon." Professor Mcgonagall explained.
I was amazed. I was handed a bag and I threw a bunch of the coins into it. There still didnt seem to be a dent. We reloaded the cart and headed back. I resumed my previous position. When we stopped we got out and headed out of the bank. A thought occured to me ass we headed back.
"Professor?" sensing what I was going to ask she replied:
"I wanted to suprise you" she smiled
"oh. Ok lets go shopping!" I skipped down the road I was actually excited for this shopping trip.
"lets get your books" Professor Mcgonagall called. We stopped in Flourish and Blotts and she helped me find my books, then we got my couldron, then my potions ingrediants, and then my other supplies. We stopped at Madam Malkins next.
"Ahh another student. Up on the platform sweety" I stepped up and she began measuring and pinning.
"Which house are you hoping for?" A girl to my right Called "I'm a Slytherin myself. Piper's the name, Piper Black" she extended her hand out and I took it.
"Faith Summers-Cullen" I was glad Mcgonagall had told me of the houses "I'm hoping for Ravenclaw"
"Ahh not a bad choice" she said
"Thanks" I replied
"All done Piper" her seamstress said
"Well see you on the train Faith" She called and left
"Yes Piper is a great girl. You'll get along great with her I would say Faith" Professor Mcgonagall said.
"All done Faith: I paid for my robes and we left the shop.
"Wands next Faith" Professor Mcgonagall stated. I smiled as we walked into Olivanders.
"Ah Miss Summers I wondered when I would be seeing you" A tape measure came up and took my measurements " I remember when your parents came in here. Your Father so excited and proud: Dogwood, Unicorn Hair, 11 1/2 inches, unyeilding, it fit him well, a great wandfor transfiguration, which he loved to prove. Your mother such a sweet girl you would never know what family she came from from looking at her or talking to her: Rosewood, Unicorn Hair, 9 3/4 inches, Hard, She was a great healer your mom."
Olivander pulled my first wand "give it a wave" He pulled it out of my hand "nope" we tried a couple more each one a no "Ah Maple and Unicorn Hair, 9 3/4 inches" He handed it to me it felt wonderful in my hand. My eyes lit up in awe at the beautiful wand. I paid for my wand and we left.
"Honey lets go get you an animal" My mother said
"ok" I replied. We went to Eyelops Owl Emporium.
"You can have any animal you want sweety our treat" Grandma Esme said
"how?" I asked
"We had some money exchanged when we were at the bank"
"oh" I looked at the animals thinking over my choiced, then I saw her a beautiful barn owl. "Her" I pointed to the Owl. The attendee got her for me. The family also chose a Great Horned Owl so they could send me letters. We walked out with our purchases. We were ladened down with boxes, bags, and cages.
"Well thats it" Professor Mcgonagall said. She took out the Portkey once more and We went back to America. When we arrived she gave me more anti nausea potion, I took it happily. We put my purchases up in my room and let the Owls out to fly.
"Ok I must be going now. Dont forget Ms. Summers September 1st. 10:45 am" she said as she handed me my ticket
"Yes Professor Mcgonagall. Goodbye."
"Goodbye Ms. Summers. I will see you at the start of Term. Cullens Family." and She was gone.
"Well this looks to be an interesting year."
"Yes it does Sweetheart" Esme
"What will you do without me for a year?"
"I dont know Darlin'. Miss you?" Dad stated and led me into the House. We spent the night together as a Family.
