Giren picked up the 10inch wand to his left.
"Ah...I see you like the Elder one, Powerful wood, channels magic well and very hard to come by, few of them were made after the fall of Gellert Grindelwald. One of the Deathly Hollows was an Elder Wand in fact." Ollivander stated.
"Deathly Hollows?" Giren asked.
"It is a classic story, if you are not familiar with it, then look it up in the Library or buy it with your schoolbooks, this one might not be so legendary but it's still quite potent, especially with a phoenix feather core. Now wave it a little, let's see if it likes you." Ollivander replied
Giren waved the wand and sparks shot from the tip, knocking it out of his hand, the wand landed against Zelric's shoe and produced a peaceful white light from the tip. "My my, that one has spunk, try another one." Ollivander insisted to Giren. "You can pick one as well." Ollivander motioned towards Adelaide. There were 3 wands on the counter with Giren only picking one, so she had the other 2 to pick from.
"That one is Holly, also a phoenix feather." Ollivander stated, "I see you're fond of phoenix."
"Um..." Giren was a bit confused, he really didn't know what Ollivander meant by core, and he had never in fact seen a phoenix, he was still getting used to the fact they even existed at all.
Giren waved it and this time a spark flew into one of the shelves, knocking several boxes over. "Um..so.."
"Don't worry about it, this happens often when a wand decides to be tempermental." Ollivander halted Giren's appology. "Maybe we should try a different core..." Ollivander brushed through the wands on the floor until he found one with Unicorn hair and another with Dragon Heartstring.
Giren took a look at the Unicorn Hair wand first. "Red Oak, an excellent choice for dueling, though I hope your wits are quick about you." Ollivander explained.
Giren waved the wand which made a sputtering sound followed by a loud fart-like noise.
"Dear me....that one wont work for you at all...." Ollivader handed Giren another wand, this time with a Dragon Heartstring core.
"Hawthorne, a good wand for those seeking guidance, and you seem to have a lot of questions in your mind."
As Giren waved the wand it burst into flames. Giren gasped and dropped the wand and Ollivander uttered a spell which caused water to spout from his own wand to put out the fire. "This....is troubling, wand fires are not a good sign my boy.." Ollivander stated.
"Why's that?" Giren asked. "Am I still getting a wand?"
Ollivander gave Giren a stern look. "You don't believe, do you?"
"We've had this happen in a few wizards...mostly with long exposure to the muggle world, they lose their ability to percieve magic."
"But I got a letter to Hogwarts." Giren replied.
"Indeed...I don't generally like giving these to students...but it might just work..." Ollivander handed Giren a dark colored wand, it was particularly long compaired to the others Giren had tried but not overly bulky. "It's Black Palm with Dryad hair, very useful in dream magic and capturing the mind. Generally Dryad hairs are hard to control and uncooperative, but many wise and talented wizards used them."
Giren picked up the wand and it flashed a bright white light the lit the entire room, almost everyone had to cover their eyes.
Giren could see his hand covered in blood, his wand lying next to the body of a faceless girl.
"Get up and face me!" a male voice shouted.
Giren stumbled for the wand, catching his reflection in the blood on the ground, only it wasn't his face, it was a skull covered in blood. The Skull's mouth opened and a snake lunged towards him out of the reflection.
Giren looked around at everyone a bit stunned, everyone else would have thought he was just excited from finding a working wand, nobody would hear about this particular vision.
Ollivander seemed particularly pleased. "It likes you!" he exclaimed.
Giren put his money on the table and rejoined Cat who already had her wand.
