Paradise Lost

Jem was still getting over his broken arm when we started talking about Tom Robinson and Mr. Ewell and what almost happened to us that night in the dark under the big oak. Before all that happened, Maycomb county had always seemed hotter and more colorful. Jem said that was just my being younger that made me think that way and when I got to be his age I’d understand better. I think he was just fooling though. He just didn’t want me to know that he was just as confused about it as I was. But then, he did have more experience with that sort of thing, what with Mother and everything.

This is the Life (Chapter 2)

So excuse me for forgetting
But these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten
If they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

And you can tell everybody
This is your song
It may be quite simple
But now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world

I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world

Your Song- Elton John Continue reading “This is the Life (Chapter 2)” »


This is the Life (Chapter 1)

It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside,
I’m not one of those who can easily hide

Don’t have much money, but f I did,
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no,
or a man who makes potions in the traveling show,
I know it’s not much, but it’s the best I can do,
my gift is my song and this ones for you

The Truth on Parchment

Hermione stared at the book she was reading in her hand: Hogwarts, a History. She read this book so many times before, and four months ago, she had renewed the same book a dozen times. She wondered how boring she must have seemed.

In front of her was Harry and Ron’s workload of homework spread across two tables, yet they were nowhere in sight. Harry was in Quidditch practice for the fifth time this week and Ron was watching him in the pouring rain. It had been raining for three days straight, and it wasn’t showing any sign of letting up any time soon. Continue reading “The Truth on Parchment” »


Love and Nature (Chapter 2)

Harry was still shaken up at the close loss of his loyal owl he received as a 11th birthday present from Hagrid, the gamekeeper of Hogwarts: School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he got off, the entire Weasley family other than Mr. Weasley and Charlie ran from the house and gave him a group hug. After a few failed times, he managed to choke out, “Can’t breathe”.

They finally all let go of him and gave him room to breathe. They all gave him a warm smile that a loving family always gives and Harry couldn’t help but return. After Harry caught his breath, he made a gesture for a hug, which the Weasleys gladly gave. Continue reading “Love and Nature (Chapter 2)” »


Love and Nature (Chapter 1)

Harry Potter was no natural boy, sure, some boys may enjoy doing homework and hate summer vacation, but that is not what separated him from the others. He is a wizard, but not just any wizard; he is a The Boy Who Lived and the one destined to defeat Voldemort once and for all.

Okay, so your first thought must be, Oh great, another famous jerk that is meant to save the world but probably too selfish to do it. Well, he is nothing like that. Sure, he may be famous, but all he desires is to be a regular boy— Well as regular as a wizard boy can be. Continue reading “Love and Nature (Chapter 1)” »
