21. Indeed!

We were since three-quaters of an hour in the boats towards Hogwarts. I was in the boat with Hagrid who had a sleeping Royalty in his outer pocket and with Ben, my new little friend, and dozen other pupils.  

It was pritty quiet. I think it was because of the nervousness and afraid and the unexpectedness of the up coming things. Noone knew what would happen to them. Additionaly, it was already dark and everyone was tired of their long journey. The wind blew and it was getting colder. I wrapped my arms around Ben, who started to shiver, and around Sophie Mann, a little German girl with whom I chummed up while we were in the boat and who shivered more than Ben.

"Gosh! How cold it is suddenly! - Und Laura, wie sehr du zitterst! (German: And, Laura, look how much you shiver!) -" I wrapped my arm tighter around her. She only smiled weakly. I looked out in the darkness and tried to make out something in the dark but I failed. It was too dark!

"Hagrid, sir? When will we arrive, sir? We are all very tired." Hagrid and I agreed that I can call him 'sir' as a form of showing my respect for him. I looked at my both sides and realized that Ben and Laura were drifting away.

"We will arrive very soon. And I think that we are curiously and impatiently awaited. Because we are already 40 minutes late! Oh Merlin! I hope Dumbledore isn't very disappointed by me..." Hagrid hung down his head and looked depressed.

"Hagrid, sir, it was not your fault. It was mine! And I will say that to the headmaster personally!! Don't worry, sir, everything will be alright!" I tried to cheer him up. He smiled weakly.

"You are so gracious! At least you can't be in Slytherin."

"Well, let's just see what will happen." Then there was silence. Those who were awake waited patiently for the arrival while the others were asleep.  

I looked around the boat and saw different faces. I wondered where they came from and which family background they had. Then I turned to look at Hagrid. I tried to remember how he introduced himself.

"Hagrid, sir. Which post do you have here at Hogwarts, again?"

"The gamekeeper and keeper of the keys at Hogwarts" he said proudly which made me smile.

"And what are your responsibilities as a gamekeeper and keeper of the keys?"

"They are very important and tough! As a gamekeeper I take care of different magic creatures. Like Hippogriffs, fairies, centaurs - "

"And unicorns?" I interrupted him when I remembered the image of the unicorn when professor Dumbledore rescued me from the death eaters.

"That's one of my biggest wishes to feed and grow one. But it's very difficult to only see one. They are very shy and they only allow virgins near them."

"Virgins? Why virgins?"

"Well, I don't know... maybe because they are the purest in our world and an unicorn stands for purity!" I nodded thoughtful. I remembered what Mr. Ollivander said when I got my wand.

"And how can I see one?"

"Well, for pupils it's impossible because unicorns are usually in the forbidden forrest. And there you are not allowed to go to. Not at least alone." I nodded.

"And what are you doing as the keeper of the keys, sir?"

"There I am the custodian of Hogwarts. I am looking that Hogwarts is in a good condition and I bring the first years, as today, to Hogwarts by boat. And, you know? Professor Dumbledore chost me on his very own!" Hagrid said more proudly and grinned.

"Wow! Then you must be very close to him."

"Yeah, I am. He was there for me when noone was. He is a great man and wizard!" His eyes glistered a little.

"I believe he is. Indeed!" I said and felt that something bad happened to Hagrid who sniffled loudly. Then I made out a tunnel in the dark. We entered it and I immediatly felt the coldness and smelled ivy.

"Kids!" Hagrid said loud that everyone could hear him even those from the other boats. And belive me, it was very loud! It was that loud that Ben and Laura startled up from their sleeps.

"Kids! We will arrive soon. Get ready and prepared." A general rustle started and everyone started talking with eachother. Laura and Ben did the same.

"And ready?" I asked them after I checked my bags and they were finished too with checking their stuff. They nodded unsure.

"Everything will be fine, you two. Don't worry about things you can't handle", I said to them and smiled. But honestly, it was more for me than for them. I was deep in my thoughts now and I was wondering what will happen to me and where I will be sorted. And I wondered whether my friends already arrived.

While I was thinking, Laura gasped and whispered: "Look!" I looked at her and then infront of me, where she was looking at. I was amazed! 

The light coming against us which was brighting a gorgeous underground harbour at the end of the tunnel. And a dark figure was fastly going up and down, very impatiently with a peaked hat.
