Everybody has a talent...Rowan's is special.
Rowan Smith has had a terrible life's story, growing up in an adoptive muggle family. Unfortunately, those terrible muggles abused her to the point where she actually got used to it. She ran away at the age of 8 years old, after her parents did something absolutely horrifying. Rowan found herself in Diagon Alley with a small job at the Leaky Cauldron, sweeping floors for a small payment. She stayed in an abandoned corner of the Alley, sleeping there each night.
It was that way, until, she received her Hogwarts letter and went there, learning and making friends. She couldn't be happier when she was on the train! When they were sorted, though, all the friends she made turned their backs on her when the hat shouted,"Slytherin!". Rowan was alone for 5 years, the only person still trusting her being Harry Potter.
One day, Rowan finds out her true blood lineage when she takes a curious adventure to the Black Lake...
