Chapter 1- Letters
In the orphanage of Konoha, like any orphanage should be, but this one was slightly different in some way it was the shape and size which made this particular orphanage more daunting then others. It was tall, square and old fashioned looking; if you ever walked past this strange building you would get a shiver down your spine. It has wooden splinter cracked frames around the windows which were chipped and frosty because of the cold. The windows let through some light at the sight of some homeless and troublesome children who lived in this odd place for a home. One child in particular was special. No, I know what you're thinking! He wasn't in need of special education or attention, all though he has an attention span of a tea spoon, that wasn't the special side of him. It was more of a gift he had, a gift of magic. Now you're probably thinking what's so special about magic? Does he do fancy card tricks and can hide a gold coin between his index and thumb pretending it had disappeared, well yes actually he could do that, but the type of magic I'm talking about is real magic, this boy was a wizard! Not just any old wizard but a wizard who is going to be playing a very important role at a magic school which in fact he got a special invitation to attend to this magical place called Hogwarts, the famous magic school for wizards and witches of many talents.
The poor kid didn't even know this day would ever come that he would be leaving his poor excuse for a home and venture into the real world. He was starting to think he would never leaver or ever get adopted because everyone there thought he was weird or strange. This kid was very excited to get a personal invitation into a whole new world. Just like any other kid on his first day of school and the magic part only made him more excited, and nervous that he would flunk out, Hogwarts was going to be the next adventure for him, but what kind of adventure is it going to be?
In the morning hours of August 1st, the sun was coming up over the buildings and house in London with the everyday normal early morning misty fog. London was cold and the snow had crept up under the doors and in tiny cracks in the ground you never even knew existed, unless you got a magnifying glass of course. But anyway, enough about the details of what was surely a very cold but exciting day for a young boy of twelve who was about to embark on his new mysterious journey. The boy had blonde spiky hair and six strange lines across his cheeks like some sort of house pet like a cat or a dog, they weren't whiskers, in fact he was born with them, he didn't even know what they were himself, maybe some birthmark of some sort, but anyway moving on. He was still dressed in what seemed to be a new pair of sleep wear, some blue striped pyjamas with soft blue socks that rolled up way pasted is ankles. What was this boy doing in his Pyjamas still? Well actually he had just gotten out of bed and had noticed a floating object in the middle of the desk. He had slept in a hotel for the magic type, non muggle born, for anyone who didn't know what a muggle was it a non-magic being. For this young boy, he was a magic being and the headmaster of Hogwarts had let him stay in this hotel for the night, well at least that's what the note said.
"Dear Naruto boy,
How are you? I am very glad you have decided you want to go to Hogwarts. If you're wondering I was the one who paid for you to stay at this hotel if you are wondering how your name got on the list of people who had booked rooms, the lady's at the counter looked so dashing that is why I picked this particular hotel for you, not that I was peeking on them or anything. I do hope you had a good stay.
Since you're going to be going to Hogwarts today, I have already organized all your school books and a pet owl for the year which you will find down stairs near the front counter with those delightful ladies. You will need to catch the 11 o'clock train today at the London train station, in this envelope with the letter you are currently reading will be your train ticket to platform nine a three quarters. Now remember Naruto, the train leaves at exactly eleven o'clock, so don't be late. If you look in the first trunk there will be some robes for you to change before you arrive at Hogwarts.
P.S tell the ladies down stairs I want to see them again.
Cheers, Headmaster Jiraiya."
Naruto had finished reading the letter, he laughed at the fact that all Master Jiraiya ever does is be a pervert and look at woman's butts and boobs. Naruto finally changed into is everyday clothes some black skinny jeans and a navy blue t-shirt with a navy blue jumper. He slowly paced himself out into the hall way of his room and walked slowly and carefully down the wooden dusty stair case which led down to the hotels pub. He was trying not to make any noise because the floor was making annoying awkward squeaky noises. The pub was an old fashion German looking bar, with many racks of drinks and cups of all different sized against the back wall behind the counter. The windows were small and round, but you couldn't really see out of them unless you were nearly as tall as the roof. Naruto walked himself over what appeared to be his luggage in the corner of the room.
The way Master Jiraiya explained it, well he didn't really, but for some reason Jiraiya had managed to put together all of Narutos belongings and some new books and items and put them all in old fashioned brown trunks which look reasonably fashionable. Naruto noticed that there was a symbol and each trunk, the symbol of Hogwarts which was the same picture on his letter, a crest shield object with four sections, for a reason, each corner had a different animal they represent each house, Gryffindor was a lion, Slytherin was a snake, Hufflepuff was a badger and Ravenclaw was an eagle. Naruto was trying to work out why Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Slytherin were all man eating animals, why was Hufflepuff a cute little badger?
After he noticed the trunks, Naruto was staring at an animal, his new owl. It was big and white, Naruto had seen owls before when he used to look out the window in his small bedroom at Konoha Orphanage, but he never got a close up of any owls that passed by, but this owl was surely pretty, with white feathers and a perfect owl face. There was a little note next to the cage, Naruto picked it up and opened it, the letter wasn't big, in fact it wasn't really a letter it just said 'Hedwig' Naruto was just assuming it was the birds name, he liked it.
"Monsieur Naruto Uzumaki, its ten thirty, you will need to go to the train station or you're going to miss your train to school" Said the lady at the counter while she was cleaning a glass cup repeatedly with a tea towel which look very old and warn out.
"Yes Ms, I am about to head off now, I won't be late it's just around the corner"
Naruto started to push his trolley out the front door, which opened on its own because of some magic spell. Once Naruto got out the front he was pretty much at the train station, he walked across the bridge and made his way down a ramp which led him onto the platforms. Naruto got his ticket from his pocket to re-read what the platform said. It defiantly said in a big tittle 'Platform 9 and ¾' but it was rather strange because Naruto couldn't find the platform. He walked up and down twice until he decided to ask the platforms conductor.
"Excuse me sir, can you help me find this train"
Naruto got his attention and showed him his ticket
"Think your being funny? There's no such thing as Platform 9 and ¾"
The conductor walked away as he thought it was some sort of joke he has made
"Stupid conductor, now I'm going to be late"
Naruto started to stare platforms 9 and 10 and had a little hunch. Maybe the platform was only for witches and wizards to see.
"Excuse me? Are you going to Platform 9 and ¾?" Naruto turned around the see a girl with pink hair and a trolley as well which look similar to his.
"Yes, uh but how do we do that exactly?" Naruto said as he made a cheesy smile to her
"You run between these two platforms, how about we do it together?" Naruto wasn't sure if he wanted to run at a brick wall.
At this moment Narutos life so far was flashing before his eyes. He thought back to Konoha Orphanage and how the other kids though he was strange because of some weird things that had happened. Like that time when Naruto had accidently set one of the curtains on fire by getting angry at one of the other kids, all he did was stare at it and the kid who was standing next to it freaked out and told one of the nurses. The kids starting calling him a freak, weirdo and lots of other names which made Naruto isolate into his room. Time at the orphanage wasn't the best, but it was the only home he had. The owners of the orphanage actually told people who wanted to adopt that Naruto was not a kid they wanted to get involved with because he was a strange boy.
Who would want to adopt a strange boy who was dropped off at the orphanage when he was just a baby wrapped in a blanket and placed in a basket? Well not anyone actually, most people wanted children that were disciplined and Naruto held the world record on 'Santa's Naughty List'. But the best memory was when Master Jiraiya visited and gave him his letter to Hogwarts which read -
"Dear Naruto Uzumaki,
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted in to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry."
the letter said some other stuff but the lazy Naruto didn't bother to read the rest of it because Jiraiya started to explain to him that he was a wizard and Naruto accepted the invitation to go to Hogwarts
Naruto snapped out of his deep thoughts.
"Hey kid you there?"
"Yeah I am." Naruto said.
"Together shall we then." Said the pink haired girl.
Naruto said as the pair of them looked at each other as they nodded and ran straight into the wall between platform nine and ten then they vanished.
