The daughter of a couple of weirdos
Now that I have a place on the web to write all about me I think everyone should be grateful.|
Sadly, my summer is almost over. I've enjoyed gliding through the Asian skies this year. I toured several museums with my parents, magical and muggle alike. I was impressed with the history but none of it was the excitement I craved.
I met up with two Japanese witches that are daughters of my parents friends. While our parents caught up the girls wanted to show me around the muggle city. I was so happy to find witches as interested in the muggle culture as I am. In fact, they told me that most people over there are.
Our parents had boring international affairs to discuss so we left them to it and I was given a tour of parks, streets and shopping malls. I nearly dropped my camera getting all of the shots in. Once I almost ran out of film and the older daughter showed me a spell to extend the film. It's very useful and I'll never forget it.
The girls still prefer moving pictures to the muggle ones that I like so just for them I took a few enchanted rolls. Hilarity ensued. I found out that freckles aren't appreciated very much in that area of the world. There were some kids that dared to tease me about them I quietly uttered a jinx to increase sweat gland function in their general direction...
Just after that my letter for Idlewild arrived! I didn't read it right away because I know exactly what it says so there wasn't any point. I didn't show it to my parents until much later in the eveing either. I caught my Mom in a good mood and with a, well, glum look I handed her the letter. She could tell by my expression that I hadn't been pleased.
I tried to get her to let me go to one of the Asian witch schools but she thought I was making a rush decision. So we compromised. If by my junior year I still want to go we can work out a foreign exchange program. We agreed that I'll beat out the "competitors" at Idlewild with my grades and experiences throughout the Asian continent. It's going to be a blast.
