Harry Potter. My Chemical Romance. Yep Yep.
I woke up one morning, smelling the sweet smell of bacon wafting through the air. My nice little room, in my nice little house, in the big country of England was just right for someone like me. The only thing wrong with it is the two people that live here with me. I call those two people Mum and Dad.
Getting up, I put on black skinny jeans, knee high converse and a black tanktop with a silky red tight. I looked in the mirror and my chin length black hair was still straightened from last night, and all I needed to do was run spiking gel through the back. I grabbed my got2b spiked-up styling and ran it through the back of my hair, and then sprayed it with some hair spray. I did my eyeliner and ran downstairs into the kitchen.
Mum and Dad were smiling at one another and then turned to look at me, "You got mail on the table. You can read it after we eat." Mum said in a sort of bitter tone.
"Alright then," I said as I sat down. There was nothing really wrong with my parents, except for that fact that they hated that I was a wizard and hoped to join Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizadry. What they hated more then that, you may ask? Was that I was punk, as you may be able to tell.
Mum came over and laid a few pieces of bacon and eggs on my plate, with some toast covered in jam, "thank you." I smiled as took a bite of the bacon. Delicious.
After breakfast I got up, "So, the letter?" I asked and my mum's hand was shaking as she handed it to me. The paper was thick, like parchment and there was a red seal, with a H in ink on the front. It couldn't be....
I tore the letter open and read out loud quickly,

"I...I... get to go." I smiled at the both of them, but for once in my life, they actually seemed happy that I accomplished something.
