I sat there, eager for my letter to come through the letter box. "Mum, it should be here by now!" I said as the post came through the letterbox! "MUM!" I screamed as I saw the envelope made of thick parchment with the Hogwarts crest on the back which was addressed to me. I opened it up, inside was a two letters, both made of the same thick parchment. It was, indeed, my Hogwarts acceptance letter, with it was a list of stuff I needed. Tears streamed down my face, I couldn't wait to get to Diagon Alley, to buy all my new stuff!
We went to get my Hogwarts robes first. We walked into Madame Malkins and she told me to stand next to a boy with curly brown hair, extremely hot may I add. "Hi I'm Harry" he said. "Hey, I'm Starr" I said, sounding insanely high pitched. "What house do you want to be in then?" He asked. "Gryffindor, you?" I didn't sound as high pitched this time. "Same!" He said. I hoped to hell that we'd be together. "Would you like to buy all your things with me and my mates?" He asked, pointing at the window to 4 other boys. I looked at mum hopefully, and she nodded, giving me 7 Galleons to buy a wand with. "I'll get the rest of your things, just make sure you get a wand!" She said as I walked out the shop with Harry. "Hi guys, this is Starr" Harry said introducing me. The other boys were Zayn, Niall, Liam and Louis. "Never guess what I've just heard, Harry Potter is coming to Hogwarts this year!" Niall said, with an edge of excitement in his voice. "No way!" Liam said! "Guys, let's go to Ollivanders, I want my wand!" Harry said eagerly.
Ollivanders wand shop wasn't what I'd expected. I walked up to the desk first. "Morning, you must be Starr? I remember selling your mother her first wand many years ago." He said, grabbing a box. "Here, give this a try" I opened the box and tried the wand, I flicked it at a vase and it exploded. "Obviously not, try this phoenix feather one" Again, this wasn't the one. He gave me a ebony and unicorn hair, 10 and a half inches, nice and supple. This clearly was the one, so I paid 7 Galleons and I then waited for the boys to get their wands.
"Harry, promise you'll write to me for the rest of the summer?" I asked, feeling slightly nervous and stupid. The other boys hugged me, then I hugged Harry. "of course I'll write, see you on the 1st of September at Kings Cross Station" As he walked off I felt something, something I'd never really felt, love. As I turned to find my mum I walked into a boy and knocked his glasses off. "Oh sorry" I said, going red, and scrambling to help find his glasses. "Oh, my, you're Harry Potter?!" I said feeling even stupid-er. "It's okay, and yeah I am." I stared at his lightning bolt scar. "Well I'm Starr, what house do you want to be in?" I asked. "House?" He looked confused. The giant man beside Harry signalled to move on and Harry never answered my question.
"Mum, I saw Harry Potter! I spoke to him, I touched him!!!" I said once I'd got home. She showed me all my school books and suggested I started studying early. She'd also brought me an owl, I named her Snowy, not very creative, I know. I then got my quill and parchment out and wrote to Hannah, my best friend who was also attending Hogwarts, she was my age and we'd grown up together. I told her all about my day and gave it to Snowy to send to her. Snowy arrived back at about tea time with a letter attached to her leg. "Starr, I got an owl too! Her names Hazel, seems like you had a good day, 1st September is only 10 days away!! Hannah xx"
I opened my potions book up and started reading. Bezoar stones come from the stomach of a goat, why was this so confusing? "Starr!" Mum called, I ran downstairs to find mum had brought me Bertie Botts every flavour beans and a chocolate frog. "Thankyou so much mum!" I got the Godric Gryffindor card, which I already had 2 of.
1st of Septemeber, the day I'd been waiting for. I was already packed and we left early so we could pick Hannah up before taking us to Kings Cross Station. It was half 10, but we wanted good seats on the train so we ran through the wall into platform 9 and 3/4. Harry was already there. "Byee" I said kissing mum. "Write to me every night!" She said, concerned.
We got sat into a compartment and Harry, Niall, Louis, Zayn, Liam and Harry Potter all joined us. A ginger boy called Ron also joined us. "Its Harry Potter" Niall fangirled. We all laughed, Hannah and Ron both seemed to get along very well. Suppose its because they were both ginger. Harry Styles wanted to sit next to me, this made me extremely happy so we got to know each other before we arrived at Hogwarts. We'd all changed into our robes, Harry looked especially hot in his. My heart was thudding. Would I be in the same house as them?!
We all piled in to the great hall, the sorting hat sang a song then a woman with a witches hat on started calling names. "Padar, Agi" .. A young pretty girl walked up and sat on the stool with the hat on her head. She looked absolutely terrified. "Hufflepuff" the hat shouted and the Hufflepuff table cheered. She bounced off happily to join the other Hufflepuffs! "Hawkes, Starr" Crap, my turn to get sorted. I sat on the stool and the hat was placed on my head. "Gryffindor" YES! I was so happy! I ran off to the cheering Gryffindors. "Horan, Niall" Niall went to the Hufflepuffs, Zayn was sorted into Slytherin. Louis and Liam were in Ravenclaw. Hannah, my friend got into Gryffindor. Ron did too! Even Harry Potter got Gryffindor. Then it was Harry's turn to get sorted. My heart thudded! .. When the hat roared "Gryffindor" my heart skipped a beat! He was with me. Harry Styles, the curly haired boy, the one I feel in love with the moment I saw him, was with me! Harry, with a massive smile on his face, came and sat next to me and gave me a big hug! "My parents are going to be so proud I made Gryffindor!" He smiled. Oh, his smile made my heart melt. Professor Dumbledore went over the rules then the feast begun.
All the food I could ever dream of, infront of me. I ate so much, quite embarrassing infront of Harry, he must of thought me a right pig. Then the savoury dishes cleared, replaced with puddings. Cherry pie, my favourite.
After the feast we were taken to our dormitory. Harry walked beside me as we walked up the moving staircases. The portraits on the wall started talking to us. How bazaar!? Harry and I were at the back of the line, so because I'm blessed with bad luck, once everyone got off a flight of stairs it decided to move, with me and Harry on it. He grabbed for my hand as it moved. "Uh, sorry!" He blushed. "I pointed to a door, maybe this is a shortcut?" I said, grabbing his hand and running. Apparently we ended up on floor 3, the floor that was out of bounds. We didn't know how to get back to other the Gryffindors now. "Ickle firsties" Peezes, a poltergeist shouted at us, attracting attention. "The little love birds lost?" he continued. I looked at mine and Harrys hand, both still interlocked. We immediately lost grip and ran through a door. We both the collapsed laughing. We were both lost. The door opened, and Snape was there! I'd been told about him. A grumpy, greasy haired teacher. He grabbed us, and pointed us both in the right direction, giving us both detention. We got to our dorm, said night and both went to bed, we were both shattered.
