April Hagrid #1- The Sorcerer's Stone

You know the groundskeeper from hogwarts? He has a daughter Harry's age named april. She has had the adventures with the three friends but has never been talked about.


10. The Sorting pt. 1

I left the compartment when the boys changed into their robes and they did the same while I changed. The train finally stopped and I practically sped off the train. 

I heard my father yelling, "Firs' years! Firs' years! Follow me!" 

 Harry, Ron, and I got in front of the other first years and I hugged my father as hard as I could.

"April! I missed you so much." He said. 

"I missed you too." I replied. 

"Okay! No more'n four to a boat!" My father yelled. 

I was about to sit with Ron and Harry but Neville and Hermione got in with them so I went off to another boat where 2 boys were sitting. 

"May I sit with you?" I asked. 

One of the boys were about to speak but stopped. 

"Sure you can," The other boy said, "I'm Justin Finch-Fletchly and this is my friend Ernie Macmillan. You are?"

"I'm April. April Hagrid. I hope we'll be great friends." I replied. 

"Me too." Ernie said. 

I blushed a little. He was so cute!

We got to the castle door. I had lost sight of Ernie and Justin. I was with Harry and Ron though. 

My father raised one of his fists and knocked on the door three times. 

The door opened at once and Professor McGonagall in her emerald green robes stood there. She was tall and had black hair. 

"The firs' years, Professor McGonagall," my father said. 

"Thank you, Hagrid. I will take them from here." She replied. 

She pulled the door wide and I saw the big Entrance Hall. I've seen it before but I never really came in unless I had to help him bring something in. The stone walls were lit with torches. 

We followed Professor McGonagall across the flagged stone floor. I could hear the drone of hundreds of voices from the doorway to the right — the rest of the school is probably here— but Professor McGonagall led us into a small, empty chamber off the hall. We crowded in, standing rather closer than we would usually have done. I suddenly felt someone grab my hand and I looked to see it was Ernie. 

'Sorry.' He mouthed blushing. 

"Welcome to Hogwarts," said the professor. "The start-of-term banquet will begin shortly, but before you take your seats in the Great Hall, you will be sorted into your houses. The sorting is a very important ceremony because, while you are here, your house will be something like your family within Hogwarts. You will have classes with the rest of your house, sleep in your house common room. 

"The four houses are called Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Each house has it's own noble history and each has produced outstanding witches and wizards. While you are at Hogwarts, your triumphs will earn your house points, while any rule breaking will lose house points. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the house cup, a great honor. I hope each of you will be a credit to whichever house becomes yours. 

"The Sorting ceremony will take place in a few minutes in front of the rest of the school. I suggest you all smarten yourselves up as much as you can while you are waiting."
