With a start, I would flop off of my comfortable twin sized bed and onto the hard, unforgiving wooden floor as I realize with a jolt that I'm finally going to Hogwarts! My mom had always spoke fondly of the school, so I am excited to finally go there. Then, suddenly aware of a strong breeze circling my head, I roll my eyes and stare at the blur of colors that dug their claws into my shoulder and tweeting non stop at me.
" Honestly, Dolce, I can take care of myself just fine! " I would say with an exasperated look, my arms crossed. Dolce, satisfied with my answer, would chirp, flying off to deliver any potential mail. I would grab my cart with all of my school supplies on it, racing over to my sleeping twin.
