The magical exchange

This is for the one week at Hogwarts competition.

The whole class took in a breath as one. Had we heard right?
"Yes, that's right we will be participating in an exchange with Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizadry"

I turned to my best friend and in unison we screamed We were going to hogwarts!!!!

2. Welcome to Hogwarts

“That was torture” I announced as the bus drew to a stop at hogsmeade village. I had slept the first half of the journey but then the rest of the bus decided it was a good time for a sing along and woke me up begging me to join in. I was first of next to Lucy as the doors opened on the bus and whilst I was pleased to have fresh air I felt that Lucy’s kissing the ground and happy dance routine was a bit overdone.

Mrs. Winter who was our chaperone and was used to Lucy’s antics being her next door neighbour simply rolled her eyes and gestured to me. I nodded and grabbed Lucy’s arm hauling her from her kneeling position on the ground where she was kissing the cobblestones.

“Follow me, in two lines please” Mrs. Winter announced as she walked through he village and came to a stop at the gates the rest of us dutifully following her me and Lucy at the front

“As we reached the gates we could finally see the castle, I and Lucy let out gasps

“I hate to say this” Lucy began

“But the books don’t do it justice” I said

“Or the films” Lucy added

We drew to a stop at the gates and seemed to be waiting for someone. That someone became apparent as a tall giant like figure began walking towards us.

“Hagrid!” I and Lucy yelled as he drew to a stop in front of the gates.

“How do ye knew me name?” He asked confused

“They know a lot” Mrs. Winter simply said “now will you let us in kind sir”

“ye mus’ be ms win’r an y’r class, com’ ‘n com’ ‘n” He opened the gates as he was saying this and we all fled through.

Hagrid began walking us to the entrance but stopped when we reached the doors.

“Now you will all be sorted but you won’t be staying in those houses overnight, we will have separate accommodation. The sorting is merely for tradition. Once we step through here you will be representing your school and the race of non-magical people. I expect you to behave” Mrs. Winter explained

We all nodded eager to get inside and Hagrid pushed open the doors. I grabbed Lucy’s arm and pulled her inside stopping dead centre of the entrance hall looking up.

“Wow” was the only word that escaped my lips as I saw the moving staircases and dozens of moving portraits.

“This is so cool” Lucy said the rest of the class nodded in agreement.

Suddenly professor flitwick appeared carrying a scroll.

“No way” Lucy said

“Your professor flitwick” I exclaimed

“Yes, yes I am, may I enquire as to your names?” Flitwick replied in a high squeaky voice that had most of the boys behind us trying not to laugh.

“Lucy Pine” Lucy said

“And Asha Dearman” I added

“Pleased to make your acquaintance” We finished together.

“Are you sure you’re not related?” He asked “you remind me of some twins we once had here” he finished looking sad

“Fred and George Weasley” I said nodding

“May Fred rest in peace” added Lucy

“Quite” Flitwick said looking surprised “anyway on with the sorting”

He turned to the doors and pointed his wand to them as they swung open. We all marched down the middle column ignoring the looks from the slytherin table. I glanced round and quickly found the Gryffindor table, and then at the end of the table I spotted something that surprised me.

“Hey Luce, isn’t Hermione meant to be the only one who finishes her education?” I asked

“Yeah why?” She replied

“Because the entire golden trio is sat at the end of the Gryffindor table” I whispered back

Lucy’s head snapped round to check what I had already seen and turned to me with shock on her face, “maybe us being here has changed the timeline?” she said I nodded in agreement and turned back to the sorting hat which had just finished it’s song and gave polite applause ignoring the expressions on the rest of the classes faces.

None of them had ever read the harry potter series so they would all be clueless here. Names began being read in alphabetical order meaning Lucy was second on the list after James Arnold. I gave her shoulder a squeeze of encouragement and pushed her forwards. She smiled nervously at me as she sat under the hat and I smiled back.

I counted slowly getting only to ten before the hat shouted “GRYFFINDOR” I was surprised, I was sure she’d get into Ravenclaw. 2 people later and it was my turn to sit under the hat.

“Let’s see then” a quite creepy voice echoed in my mind “Hmm a thirst to do better than others, and a thirst for knowledge; slytherin and Ravenclaw. But you wish to be with your friend, your loyal to her and trustworthy with her secret” I let out a little gasp at that and the hat chuckled “don’t worry I won’t tell hmm tricky tricky. You display traits for all of the houses except the one you desperately desire to be in” the hat said.

I let out a low growl in my mind, who was this hat to tell me who I was? ‘Now you see here hat’ I thought ‘I will be going into Gryffindor with my best and only friend. Have you seen some of the things I’ve done how can I be anything but a Gryffindor? I stood in front of a herd of horses to stop my sister being trampled to death once, now you tell me that I’m not courageous.’ I yelled in my mind

The hat let out a chuckle and seemed to smile “And that is why you shall be in GRYFFINDOR” He yelled the last part and I let out a sigh of relief as the Gryffindor table let out a loud cheer. I stood up and glanced down the table looking for Lucy and found her to my shock sitting opposite Ginny Weasley and next to Hermione granger. My eyes widened as Lucy waved me down the hall. I walked up the hall and sat next to her and almost died of shock as Harry Potter held his hand out to me for it to shake

“Harry Potter, Welcome to Hogwarts”
