Day 25: Calvin White

| November 25, 2011 | 1 Comment

For years Calvin has been trying to persuade his parents that he is a wizard, to no avail. On his eleventh birthday, the 31st of of July (the same as Harry’s), he had not yet received his letter from Hogwarts. His parents tried to comfort him,¬†assuming that he had finally given up on the idea. However, even though no letter had arrived, Calvin was still convinced that he must be a wizard, and would not let them near him. He grabbed his plastic cauldron full of stuffed owls and fake potions and spell books and hid them in his closet.

After a few days of not speaking to his parents, and hearing them discuss therapy options, he decided it would be more prudent to just pretend that he did not believe in magic any more. It was about this point that he noticed that he actually did have magical abilities that were not only his imagination. Unfortunately, he is not able to tell anyone without them thinking he is making it up or mentally ill.
