Renowned author JK Rowling recently posted a story on the Pottermore website that features Harry Potter and his old friends who are in their thirties now. This story comes after seven long years since the last book of the Potter franchise came out. The story which is a very short one – just about 1500 words – reunites Harry with most of his friends from Hogwarts, including his best buddies Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger who are apparently married to each other and have their own kids just like Harry and Ron’s sister Ginny.

Other characters who also feature in the short story include Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood. According to the Pottermore website, the short story gives a brief glimpse of the present-day life of the ex-students of the famous batch of Hogwarts school of witch and wizardry as well as a look at the next generation.

The story is set during the finals of the Quidditch World Cup 2014, the showpiece event of the famous sport played by witches and wizards. The story is written in the form of an article by the well-known gossip correspondent Rita Skeeter who works for The Daily Prophet.

The story describes Potter, aged 34, with shades of gray in his hair. He sports a mysterious mark on his cheekbone similar to the one he has on his forehead, thanks to the death curse (Avada kedavara) from Lord Voldemort.

Rowling’s final article on the Quidditch world cup between Brazil and Bulgaria will be published on the Pottermore website by July 11 which is coincidentally taking place just two days before the finals of the Muggle world cup in Brazil. After news broke out about the new story, there was a surge in traffic on the Pottermore website which led to its crash for a brief moment. However, the site was back on its feet and is working normally in a jiffy.
