Chapter One; Introductions and Stuck up Boys

Riley Langley was sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast and humming Eat It by Weird Al under her breath. She wasn't quite sure how she got the song in her head, but for some odd reason, it had been repeating over and over since she’d woken up. It didn't help that she couldn't remember all the words either.

Riley was startled out of her thoughts by an irritated pecking noise at the window. Don't ask her how she could tell it was irritated, because she wouldn't be able to tell you. It must be just one of those sixth sense things, She mused to herself as she jumped to her feet and opened the window wide.

She paused for a moment to enjoy the smell of the woods after it rained. Then turned and took the letter from the owl that had started to hoot in annoyance. After being relieved of the letter, it immediately took off right back out the window.

"Fine!" Riley yelled after it, "Leave! But you could have had toast!"

After sticking her tongue out at the retreating form in the sky, she looked at the thick envelope in her hands and gasped. On the front of the envelope, addressed in emerald-green ink was:

Ms. R. Langley,

Cottage in the woods,

Wood Dalling

Riley smiled huge and opened it quickly, her hands shaking with excitement. She had been waiting for this letter for years. She pulled the letter out and read:


Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore

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

Dear Miss Langley,

We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment. Term begins on September 1st. We await your owl by no later than July 31st.

Yours sincerely,

Minerva McGonagall,

Deputy Headmistress

Riley looked down the list of books and equipment, her excitement growing with every word. She looked up when her Aunt Andromeda (“I’m actually your second cousin, Riley.” “Well, whatever, who actually pays attention to that stuff anyway?”) walked into the room carrying a basket of laundry to be washed.

“What have you got there?” She asked Riley, seeing the big grin on her face.

“I finally got my Hogwarts letter!” Riley squealed, jumping up and down excitedly.

Andromeda laughed at her niece's excitement, as she walked into the small laundry room next to the kitchen, Riley on her heels.

“Aunt Andy, can we go to Diagon Alley today? Please?” Riley asked giving her aunt her best puppy-dog face. 

Andromeda smiled warmly, “How about we have Dora come over to celebrate tonight and we go tomorrow?”

Riley beamed, “All right! I’ll send her a letter. I’ve got to send one to Uncle Mad-eye and Moony, too.”

Riley was already halfway across the kitchen by the time she finished her sentence. Andromeda watched, as Riley disappeared up the stairs to her room, singing Eat It at the top of her lungs. (Getting half of the words wrong, mind you, since she still couldn't remember them all.)
