MYTHS SERIES | wood-wives
The wood-wives, a fairy species, can be found in old forests and dense groves. Petite and beautifully dressed, with long claws, they are often accompanied by violent whirlwinds. So intricately connected to the woods are those spirits that if a branch is twisted until the bark comes off, one wood-wife dies in the forest. Like many fairy species they can be helpful, if, for example a wood wife asks a mortal to fix her broken wheelbarrow and the task is nicely done, the wood chips that she leaves as a payment may turn into gold.
I’m the sixth in our family to go to Hogwarts. You could say I got a lot to live up to. Bill and Charlie have already left – Bill was head boy and Charlie was captain of Quidditch. Now Percy’s a prefect. Fred and George mess around a lot, but they still get really good marks and everyone thinks they’re really funny. Everyone expects me to do as well as the others, but if I do, it’s no big deal, because they did it first.
