Knock Knock

'Ahhh they are finally here.'

Harry wave his hand and the door unlocks. The next moment a middle-aged man entered the room. He was wearing a very expensive suit and was well-groomed. His hair was slicked back and tied into a low ponytail. and his facial hair was neatly trimmed.

(A/N I imagine him like Johnny Deep at his trial. Btw how many of you recognize this name, its from a movie.)

"Good evening. My name is Benjamin Franklin Gates. The current Headmaster or Principal of Salem University of Magic"

Harry nods at the man "Hello. I am Harry Potter. This is my guardian Melinda and my assistant Hope" he points at the old woman and young girl who were sitting besides him

"Hello." The man nodded at them.

Harry points at the empty chair. He calmly sat down realizing it was for him. 

Harry and his group were on one side of the table and he was on the other.

'I purposely avoided saying their Last Names. Just in case. Melinda is well known in some circles. And I don't know shit about what Hope's parents might have done'

"Well then, let's get down to it shall we? I was quite surprised to receive a letter from you. Dumbledore has been quite outspoken about how excited you are to go to Hogwarts" Benjamin says calmly

Harry showed a calm expression on the outside. Occlumency was at full force just in case. But on the inside, he was seething

'Tsk. Fucking old goat. I'm so looking forward to crushing him'

"Dumbledore has no authority over me. He is not my Guardian nor my Headmaster. I will go where I choose. Salem University of Magic has a great reputation and has produced many strong wizards each year. It is being hailed as the best magical school in the world. So it is an obvious choice for me"

Benjamin slightly puffed his chest showing that he is proud of his school. It was so small that Harry almost missed it

"Well, we are glad you applied. As you know Salem is a school for the elite. Where only talent and skill matter. Blood status or Money hold no sway here. Though it is helpful to students who seek outside tutors or for getting more materials"

Harry nods at that. Money does solve a lot of problems. Rare Ingredients and Books. That much was already expected of them.

"So as you know our students begin when they 9 years old. They have to go through multiple tests. Intelligence, power, talent and skill. (~Harry is 8)

"Will I be taking the test?" Harry asks calmly

"Oh no, there is no need for that. I'm willing to make an exception for you" Benjamin says in a jovial tone

~ Shifting to MC Pov

' Ahh, I see. It's because of my special 'status'. He wants to use me to make his School even more famous. Make it the undisputed number one. That and increase his standing in the American Wizarding Society. Normal people would just accept this. Take the easy way in.

But there is nothing free in this world. He might just take this as a favor. And I do not want to owe him anything. What he did was actually normal, but I still have a lower opinion of him now. What kind of man takes advantage of a little kid?'

"What are the tests anyway?" I ask in a 'curious tone'

"Hmm well we test people based on how good they are at the first curriculum. Both theoretical and practical. Though mostly we focus on practical. You can theorize all you want. But if you don't put the work in making the spells or potions a reality, then it will all be for nothing.

We expect applicants to have the basics already learned and be adept at them, Charms and Transfiguration mostly since they are the easiest. Along with being able to handle plants and to brew basic potions. If they know things from the second year and show a good grasp of the material. They can skip the tests and enter the school. Naturally, if a student is slipping, and falls below the required level, he will be expelled"

Hmmm. It really is a school where skill matters. Good grades won't be enough. Naturally theoretical knowledge is important somewhat, especially to me, since I use my magic by knowing the mechanics behind the spells.

But some people just need to point and yell out the spell. Why waste time thinking when you can just blow stuff up?

"I would like to take the tests." I say calmly

Benjamin's smile disappears from his face "Are you serious Mr. Potter. You only get one shot if you are taking the test. And you are one year younger than our normal applicants. I believe it would be better for you to skip the tests"

I smile at the man before waving my hand with a fake wand that I made from a random wood plank that I bought.

Just as I finished my 'spell'. The chair under Benjamin started to float with him still sitting on it;. Benjamin's eyes were wide open

"Silent Casting! And the Leviosa charm, perfectly cast, powerful as well seeing as you're able to support my weight"

"Can you do trans-" Before he could even finish the sentence, I wave my 'wand' again. And the dining utensils turned into butterflies and started to fly.

"Transfiguring objects into living things. That's third-year material. And you did it Silently. How good are you at potions?" Ben asks seriously

"Very. It's actually a hobby of mine. Here this is a potion I recently brewed" I throw him a bottle.

Ben catches it and his jaw drops when he sees the black color of the potion. He uncorks it and casts a few spells. " Draught Of Living Death, it's perfect.. one drop would probably kill us all. How it the.." he caught himself when he saw me giving him by best deadpan look.

It's bad form to ask the secrets of another wizard. Especially a potioneer. Since they make their living with their potions. Nobody would tell their secret methods.

Mine however includes a chemistry kit. Proper safety gear. A Damascus kitchen knife, And lots of other small helpful things that are beneath the likes of wizards.

"*Cough*.. Right. Well, you are obviously qualified for our school if you are at this level. Do you have any questions?"

"Actually yes, I do have something to ask of you. Since you were willing to make an exception earlier. I ask you to allow Hope to come with me. She doesn't have to be a student. But I need her with me as a servant and assistant"

Benjamins smile strains "That.. would be no problem at all. If that will be all we can sign the contract."

He passes me a very fancy piece of parchment. One for Hope as well.

Some clauses, Like don't share Salem secret with others. Don't teach Salem special magic to others. Basic magic is fine and some small magics that aren't that special. 

"What about familiars" Harry asks with a raised eyebrow

Benjamin was shocked by his question "Do you have a familiar?" Harry simply nods

"Impressive. One so young to already have a familiar. And to answer your question. Of course familiars are allowed. It's actually illegal to separate or take someone familiar away."

I nod at him. "Could you get me American citizenship? I would like it to prevent people from forcing me back to Britain"

Benjamin freezes. I could practically hear the cogs in his brain moving before he face palms all of a sudden. Surprising all of us.

He quickly gathered himself up "Yes, yes of course. Frankly, I'm angry at myself for not thinking of it. it will be no problem at all considering your guardian is American." 

' You stupid idiot, why didn't I think of this sooner? What would have happened if they really did take him away?' Ben was screaming in his mind

I look over the contract one more time making sure that everything is in order. I take the contract and sign it

"The new term starts on September the First. Here is a list of all the things you will need. You can bring additional material if you wish. Now if you will excuse me I need to go speak to the Ministry" Benjamin quickly leaves the room and heads directly to the Ministry, probably to get my citizenship done as fast as possible

I turn to Melinda and Hope who had smiles on their faces

"Well let's order some food and celebrate." 

"Sure it will be on you. I want Magical Salmon and King Crab, with some Caviar" Melinda smiles at me, making my eyebrow twitch

"Umm. I would like pizza" Hope says shyly, not expecting Melinda to order such expensive food. She was worried about the cost so she ordered cheap food

Ahhh Hope is such a sweetheart. I love the girl.

She is always nice and polite and listens to me. She was already helping me out with some of my projects. Mostly moving things around or chopping and preparing magical plants

"Don't worry about the cost Hope. Today. We party!" 

Creation is hard, cheer me up!
