Chapter 1

My Secret(s) or If you could only see the beast (lyric from the song)

"My name is Lara Clarke, I may seem like many other 11 year olds but I have my fair share of secrets. I don't seem like the secretive type, but I contain more secrets than many people like me. As you might've guessed I'm not a typical child, my oddities make sure that I don't have many normal friends. The ones that I have don't know any of my secrets, but if they did they would think they are crazy or I pranking them or not be my friends anymore. So I must make sure that they can't look at me too closely or find me during a full moon. They also mustn't find out about my magic abilities."

As soon as I finished writing this I stood up, pointed my wand at it and said "Incendio." I let out a sigh of relief when it bursh in to flames, every once in a while I write these leters to no one and burn them just because it feels like I'm burning my three giant secrets away. screech I turned in the direction of the unfamiliar sound and looked out my window to find a beautiful owl carring a letter that looked similar to the one that I wrote
crap where did this bird get this I thought I burnt all the letters.
The bird looked at me like it was confused and tapped on the window, kind of signaling me to open it. Like the normal person I pretended to be, I opened the window. The owl came in dropped the letter on my bed and left.
what the heck was that all about
I turned to the letter and saw that it was addressed to me. I thought that this couldn't be one of my letters since I never adressed them. I quietly oopened my letter and saw that I was finally accepted to the boarding school for people almost like me, well more like 1/3 of me. The school's name was strange, Hogwart's School of Witchcraft ad Wizardry. So this proved that one of mysecrets are true i am a wizard, well a witch in my case. I was so excited that I let myself do something I haven't done in a long time, I let my hair change to bright magenta. Let's just say that I haven't done that since I was really excited and I'm usually not that excited. After I calmed myself down I went downstairs and showed my parents my letter. They seemed like they were the most proud parents in the world and they had expected it since I was born. When I was little they would even tell me about they're adventures at Hogwarts as bedtime stories. My father had many friends that were troublesome and humorous and Mum had very little friends and constantly stayed out of mischief. The strangest thing of all was that my mum loathed my dad. [who does that remind you of?] The more I thought about it the more i wanted to go to Hogwarts.

Days passed and I grew more and more impatient to go to Hogwarts, I even embraced my oddities and started useing them often always changing the way I looked and trying to find which look suited me the most. In the end I decided to show my Hogwart's spirit and changed my hair blonde with lots of red streaks and my eyes greenish-blue. The first time my parents saw me like this was when we were in Diagon Alley purchasing my school supplies. I met several nice people there, I met a girl named Lily at Olivander's wand shop, I met a boy named Remus at Flourish and Blotts, I met a boy named James at Quality Quiddich Supplies, I met a boy named Peter at Gingotts, and I met a boy named Sirius at Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. I had a feeling that we all would become great friends as time passed.

Time flied for the next few days, it all was a blur untl it was the day the Hogwart's Express came. I was excited to the point that I was awake before 8 in the morning and begging my parents to get a move on because I would be late, normally I would've been yelled at and grounded, but my parents were too excited they didn't care. When I decided to get ready I threw on my clothes and looked in the mirror and saw that my hair was VERY magenta. I tried to calm down, but nothing was working, I eventually let it go and stuffed all my hair in a hat and went downstairs to eat breakfast. My mum made strawberry french toast in celebration of this glorious day and because she knew it was my favorite. My day was pretty amazing so far I mean getting to go to Hogwarts, my favorite breakfast, getting to go to Hogwarts, magenta hair, and did I mention GETTING TO GO TO HOGWARTS. I admitt it I was extatic, it's not everyday you start school at a magic school, well I guess it's a pretty common thing for 7th years but for me not as much. I was so excited that I almost forgot to get my trunk and owl before I left. In the car on the way to the station i ws able to calm myself and change my hair and eyes to all the houses' colors [you know the blonde hair with red streaks and the greenish-blue eyes]. We soon got to the station where my parents showed me onto the platformand we said our goodbyes.I found a compartment near the back of the train, Lily and a boy named Severus joined me soon after. Lily and I go talong quite well while Severus an dI didn't. There's something about him that I don't like much but I couldn't put a finger on it, maybe it was how observant he was or maybe he wasn't what Lily thought abput him all the time. We were informed by a prefect that we would be arriving soon and to change into our robes after a couple long minutes of awkward silence. Lily and I left to change and on our way back to the compartment I saw James, Remus, Sirius and Peter, so I cchanged my appearance to looks like a third year that I met, she had long wavey black hair and dark brown eyes. I thought she was really pretty and I wanted to know what the guys would do if a girl that pretty wanted to sit with them. It turned out that they made a fool themselves, they is refering too James and Sirius. Remus never even looked up from his book and Peter was too nervous to speak, I started laughing and turned back into my normal self. Everyone looked at me with an astonished gleam in their eyes, i quietly explained that I was a metaorphagus, and they started asking me to change the colors of my hair and eyes. Sirius even asked if I could make my nose and mouth into a duckbill, of course I tried and succeded. The rest of the train ride flew by since I was having so much fun. I wondered how Lily was doing so when we got on the platform so, I left the guys to find her.
