This is my first fan fiction, so don't be mean to me about it if te don't like it.
It all started, that one fateful day, on my eleventh birthday, when I found out that wizards and witches were REAL, and not just things from fairy tales that your parents told te to amuse you.
I'm Miranda Basil. I have long, dark brown hair, dark green eyes, and a skinny body. I like anime, facebook, and I am a tomboy. I'm muggle-born. Just yesterday, I found out that I was a witch.
That morning was just like any other day, well, except for the fact that I was turning 11. We had everything set up for my party, cake, streamers, presents, the usual. It started getting weird when an owl appeared at my door. It was snowy white, with brown specks, and it had a letter tied around its foot. I looked at it curiously, there weren't usually owls around here. I untied the letter, and read it.

I stared at the paper. This had to be a prank. But whoever made this sure had a lot of time on their hands. I showed my parents. My dad didn't think it was real, but my mom just stared at it. She was speachless. I saw her leave the room, and come back with a book called The Tales Of Beedle The Bard I stared at it, I had never seen the book in the house, even though I had seen every spot in the house countless times. She opened to a story called Bibbity Babbity Rabbity and her Crackling Stump. "A long time ago, in a land far far away, a King decided to keep all the magic in the world for himself..." I read. When I had finished, my father and I were still not convinced wizards were real. "You've got to believe me!" She detto sternly. "It's probably a scam, she's not going." Dad shot back. "But I know it's real! My sister was a witch!" We sat in silence for a few seconds. "Fine." My dad gave in.
