there is more to her, but that will be revealed in the story as it goes along
The Medusa Curse
Dear Miss. Nicole Riddle, we are glad to inform you that you have been admitted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
"I think you have the wrong person, my name is Nicole Scarlett, and im not magical or anything," i said handing him the letter back. He shook his head. "You're real name is Nicole Riddle," he answered. I looked at him suspciously. "Well even if my name is Nicole... Riddle, im not magical or anything so i cant study witchcraft or wizardy," i said trying to hand him back the letter again. He pushed the letter back to me. "Tell me Nicole, have you ever done something, something you couldnt explain," he asked. I thought back to all the times i had done something that earned me the nickname "freak". He nodded, seeming to know that the answer was yes. "And who are you anyway?" i asked rather annoyed that he knew more about me than i knew about him. "I am Albus Dumbledore, Im a professor," the man named Dumbledore said. I laughed. He raised an eyebrow. "Ya right. You are probably just another doctor here to see whats wrong with me," i scoffed. "No, im like you," he said. "Prove it," i challenged. He snapped his fingers and my desk was entirely on fire. "Why is it always fire?" i muttered under my breath. The fire ended and my desk looked entirely fine, not burnt at all. "Impressive," i said examining my desk. "At Hogwarts, not only will you learn magic, but you will learn how to control it," he said. "Then can you explain to me why my hair is now made of snakes?" i asked irriatated that he didnt explain this before. He nodded, knowing that this would come up eventually. "You may want to sit down, this is a long story," he said gesturing to the seat in front of his. I sat down and waited intently for the answer. "When your parents, Samatha Scarlett and Tom Riddle, found out they were pregnant with you, they were both excited. But Samatha had many differences from Tom, sharing many different views. Tom believed that muggles, non magical people, should be under the control of wizards. Samatha believed muggles should have just as many rights as wizards. When you were at the age of 1, Tom began to get followers, he was going to try and become the next dark lord, to be in charge of wizard and muggle kind. This lead to fighting between Samatha and Tom and in the end of the fight, he killed her. Then he put a curse on you and brought you to an orphange," he said. "My father k-killed my mother?" i asked unable to process this. He nodded sadly. "Yes, and he put a curse on you," he answered. "So this curse gave me snake hair?" i asked confused. "This curse is a little more complexed than that. This specific curse is called the Medusa Curse," he said. My eyes got wide and i whimpered slightly. "You have heard of Medusa i presume?" he asked me. I nodded not trusting my voice to speak. "This curse is made to turn you into a 'medusa' on your eleventh birthday," he clarified. I nodded my head. It was all starting to make sense, my hair of snakes and paralzying who i looked at. "Then how come you didnt get 'turned to stone' when i look at you or when i look at myself in the mirror?" i asked. "The curse cannot be used against you, you cannot turn yourself to stone. I have a special charm on my glasses that can repeal your curse," he said, "and for you." He pulled a pair of rectungular glasses out of his pockets. I grabbed the glasses and put them on, nothing looked any different with them on. "These glasses will enable you to look at people with paralzying them," he siad. "What about my hair, scratch that, snakes?" i asked. He conjured a wig with what i suspected was his wand and gave it to me. I went to the mirror and put the wig on. The snakes were no longer visible but my head looked slightly larger than it should be. I snapped my fingers with an idea and thought of a hat i had. Before i could go over to my dresser and grab it, it flew towards me, i had summoned it. "Oops," i said to Dumbledore. He looked slightly amused. I put the hat on over the wig and it looked perfect. "There," i said impressed with how good i looked for a sorta medusa like person. "Now is there a way to reverse this curse? Or is it permanet?" i asked hoping the answer wouldnt be permanet. "No, it is not permanet," he said and released the breath i had been holding. "Then how can i reverse it?" i asked hopeful it would be something simple. "The reversal is the one thing that Voldemort, your father, had never truly believed in, love. Once you fall in love and the same person feels the same way about you will the curse be lifted," he explained. Okay, so its not that easy. "Okay then. Anyways," i said grabbing my Hogwarts letter again and reading through it, "where do i get these supplies?" i asked. "The Hogwarts gameskeeper will come here tomorrow to help you get your supplies," he answered. I nodded and looked in the mirror again. I had a long straight black hair wig on with a purple hat on. The glasses would take some getting used to and my eyes were still a bright red. "So this is all real? This isnt some cruel joke?" i asked accusingly. He shook his head no. "Then whats hogwarts like?" i asked still suspcious that this was some kind of joke. He told me of this huge castle called Hogwarts that is a school for learning magic. He told me all about magic and about my father which seemed like a very mean guy to me at the moment. "Ok so i believe this is real now," i said. "Good, now i must be going. Our gameskeeper Hagrid will be with you tomorrow," he said as he got up to leave. A thought hit me. "What about all the other kids staying here at this orphange? I pretty much exposed my curse to them," i said worriedly i would have to go the wizard prison which i think was called... Azkaban? "Dont worry, their memories have been... modified," he said. I nodded. "Okay, thank you Professor, and see you at school," i said waving. "Goodbye Nicole," he said as he left the room and left the orphange. I layed down on my bed trying to process all that i had learned. My mother had been killed and I had been cursed by my father. My father was called by Voldemort and was trying to be a dark lord. I was going to learn magic at a school named Hogwarts. I had mixed emotions. I was happy to be a witch, angry to have such an evil father, and most of all sad to have a curse on me. How could anyone fall in love with me? My hair is made of snakes, i can turn people to stone, what part of that is loveable? "/It is not loveable, you will be this way forever/" a voice said. It was one of the snakes talking to me again. "/I choose not to believe that/" i hissed back. The snake made an odd hissing noise, as if it was laughing at me. "/are you laughing at me/" i asked. "/yes/" the snake hissed back to me. I sighed. "/Look, this isnt some stupid story where you get a happily ever after at the end of it, so you might as well get used to having us on your head, because there will be no way anyone will be able to love you with this curse/" the snake hissed. "/well i can always try/" i said confidently. The snake laughed a bit more but then dropped the conversation. I can get someone to love me. I will get someone to love me. "/you will not succeed/" one of the other snakes said. "/you know what? Shut up/" i said ticked off now. Instead of having a voice in the back of my head like regular people, i had snakes talking to me beneath my wig. Life is going to be interesting these next years.
