The mansion was practically empty, save for Mister Slash, skulking in the corner of the attic, half hidden in blackness almost material. Practically empty, as it also included Shivering Lou, the ghost of a little girl who'd died in the house from sickness but still happily played with her dolls despite being dead for twenty years. Her giggles amused Ignotus, as he read about curses that turned muggles inside out, including ancient woodcut illustrations. When his Grandparents returned hours later, his Grandmother popped her grey head round his bedroom door. "Off to bed, young one. You know the rules, no reading after nine." Ignotus did as told, and got into his bedclothes. "Your letter is here, came yesterday morning but that cat of yours got it first, the owl was probably too tempting to pass up. Good job i found it before it was unreadable. Here, don't be too late." She kissed him on the head and left.

He tried to rub the sweat off his head, but his dirty hand made a brown smudge. He longed for the day he could dig by magic! but until then, he tended the patch every other day since he was old enough to lift the shovel. The letter turned out to be his Hogwarts letter, and he jumped for joy, dropped the shovel and ran home as fast as his legs could carry him. "Mum! It came! I'm going to Hogwarts school!" He said excitedly waving the increasingly filthy letter. His mother just smiled, and pointed to his chair. His mother was deaf, but the family had learned to communicate with her fine. Soon, The Cowley family were all at the kitchen table for dinner, all celebrating Septimus' 11th birthday with cake, presents, sibling rivalries and weary eye rolls. Apparently his Uncle Augustus had given him the money to buy his Hogwarts supplies! His entire brood, him, his mum and dad, Ethel, Edith, Hortedicia and little Jessica would be bundling into Diagon alley...
