Mum came running in "Your letter, it came, it's here!!" "What?!" I asked excitedly.
Wait, I'm getting ahead of myself. My name is Clara Time Greene. Wierd middle name, right? Right. My parents said it was because when the "time" was right, I would find out who my real parents were. Cheesy right? Oh well, I'm okay with it. I love them even if they're not my real parents. By the way I'm a half-blood witch. Well, now your pretty much all caught up, back to the present.
As I was about to run up to my mum, Dad came down the stairs " What's with all the noise?" "I got my Hogwarts letter, Dad!" I yelled excitedly. Before I even had time to register another thought my parents were practically squishing me to death.
"We're so proud of you, honey!" Mum said to me. "Thank you, but I can't breathe!" I whisper yelled. " Oh, right, sorry." Dad muttered letting me go. "Mum, can I have my letter now?" I asked reaching for it.
In silvery green ink the envelope read:
"Ms. C. Greene
8 Privet Drive
Surrey" I tore it open almost instantly!!

"Well, I think it's time to go back to Diagon Alley!" Dad said excitedly, as if he had been there before and missed it. But that wasn't what was on my mind at the moment. "Mum, can I go tell Harry? Please?" I asked, changing my eye color to her favorite shade of blue. "Oh, alright! But just make sure he doesn't tell anyone about magic!" she said. "I will, Thanks Mum!!" I yell from out the door.
Harry Potter has been my best friend for as long as I can remember. I've always felt bad for him, though. His Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley hate him, so they make him sleep in a cupboard under some stairs. He only lives with them because his parents died when he was 1. I'm probably his only friend. He has to do work around the house and chores instead of playing outside like a normal kid. I help him sometimes and his uncle rewards me by saying I can see Harry tomorrow or go somewhere with them but that's very rare.
I pounded on their door as hard as I could and to my surprise Dudley answered the door instead of Harry. "Why are YOU here?!" he spat.I answered him calmly afterall I was used to his crappy behavior. "I am here to see Harry! Where is he?" I asked looking over his shoulder. "He can't see anyone right now." he said quickly. I put my hands on my hips and said "What do you think he did this time?!" I asked a bit annoyed now. He didn't say anything so I finally said "Oh. Bloody Hell with it!!" and pushed past him. Only to find him locked up in his 'room' again. I was so POed I turned as red as a bloody tomato. I screamed and wished the door would go flying off so that they couldn't lock him in there again. Then his uncle Vernon came out to see what all the screaming was about and as soon as he did, the door went flying off just like I wanted it to. Now it was Vernon's turn to scream(like a little girl might I add) and at this Petunia came out and her ugly mouth dropped to the floor. At this I just started laughing, but I stopped almost instantly because I could see the anger boiling in Vernon's eyes. "Look what you did to my door!" Vernon yelled at the top of his lungs. "Well I wouldn't have had to if you didn't lock Harry in there!" I screamed. "Do you honestly think you can come into MY house and disrespect ME like that, you little monkey faced brat?!" "Bloody Hell you dipwad, you wouldn't know respect if it came up and hit you in that triple-chinned, grey haired, dumb a/s/s dog face of yours!" I screamed. I continued before he could go on. "And do you honestly think I'm going to stand by and watch you treat Harry like crap?! He does every bloody thing for you 'people' and you treat him like he's nothing! So you better knock this s/h/i/t off before I get my dad!" I demanded. But just then I realised that I had almost given away my secret to these muggle scum, not that I have anything against muggles it's just some really p.i.s.s.m.e.o.f.f! "And what do you think your dad would do?!" He screamed. I didn't say anything just glared at him. If looks cold kill........
"That's right, he wouldn't do a bloody thing! Would he?!" Vernon staetd proudly. I was about to scream my head off, not caring what I said until I caught Harry's eye. He was giving me a 'please stop' look, so I didn't go on.
Victory still in his eye, Vernon turned to Harry, "You better clean this mess up if you want to go to the zoo with us tomorrow!" I had only just noticed that the door had shattered when it hit the wall, and scattered across the floor. I suddenly had an idea "If I help Harry can I go to the zoo with you?!" Harry looked shocked and so did everyone else. But to my surprise Vernon said "If you help clean this up, cook dinner, help Petunia in the gardn, then serve dinner, then yes, you can go." At all the things I had to do I groaned but said "Alright I'll do it all." I could tell Harry wanted to say something but not until Vernon, Dudley, and Petunia left the room.
A few minutes later, they did. I started picking up the wood, Harry soon did too. As soon as they were out of earshot Harry asked, "Why'd you say you would do all those things? You don't want to go to the zoo that bad, do you?!" "Of course, I don't want to go to the zoo that badly!!" I whisper yelled, "I just don't trust them to be alone with you anymore. PLus I have soomething important to tell you." I smiled at him and changed my eye color to gold, it always creeped him out for some reason. But it was my favorite eye color. "Well. then what is it?!" he asked excited not even noticing my eyes. I knelt down and so did he " You promise you won't tell ANYONE?!" "Cross my heart hope to die!" "Okay, I'm a witch and I'm going tto this school called Hogwarts in the fall!" I said quickly. "Wait like, brooms, wands, potions, green faces, and warted noses?!" he asked me. "No, well the potions, brooms and wands. But does it look like I have a green face and warts on my nose?!" "No." "Well then, apparently not." I stated matter-of-factly.
"Clara, I need your help now!" yelled Petunia from the kitchen. "Okay, coming." I yelled back. Standing up and walking to the door, I turned and winked at Harry as if to tell him that 'it's okay, don't follow, I'll see you later' and apparently he got the message because he just went back to work. I turned and walked into the kitchen to start working.
