I am a married stay at home mom with a beautiful five year old son named Mackenzie. I love nature and animals. I have cats, a dog and a parrot and I volunteer at a school. Near my home was a beautiful forest I have played in all my life and though thousands of people protested it's destruction, it has been devasted for another highway. I started writing to take my mind of the loss of my favourite childhood place. The story I hope will be accepted includes the actual valley I mention here, but in the story things turn out differently. My hope is that humans will learn to share this beautiful planet with animals and respect nature. My son got to visit this valley until he was four and that's when the bulldozers rolled in and clear cut and rerouted the natural stream into a cement culvert. He cried. We all did. Actually, the valley thing isn't prominent in the story. It just kind of sneaked in there because of the way I was feeling when I started it. Well..........that's about it.
Okay, it's Earth week. so happy Earth Weekl! Hopefully, a new chapter will be up soon. Thanks! P.S. please be kind to the planet, it's the only one we've got! Green spaces are important!
1st-2nd Years •
Set in the summer before Harry's seventh year at Hogwarts. Harry and Ginny use Polyjuice Potion to impersonate one another to enable Harry to sneak out of Privet Drive to watch a Quidditch game with Ron. When Harry does not return at the appointed time, unforseen problems arise in an embarrassing way, such as having to go to the bathroom and such in a body of the opposite sex. Humour abounds in the first half of the chapter, but angst takes over after that as Harry is caught in a lie and endures Uncle Vernon's wrath for it. Harry is rescued from Privet Drive and at first, Ginny feels responsible for having encouraged Harry to get out and have a little fun. Originally written for a challenge where the object was to describe a birthday cake with as much detail as possible, so I must warn you, Fred and George made the cake and I can say no more than that.
