6. The Sorting


So because this chapter is all about sorting I want you to tell me in a comment, where do you think the sorting hat will put you if you went to Hogwarts; Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff ... Are you brave, ambitious, smart or loyal?

Tell me in a comment and tell me your name and you may find yourself in this story =) 


Kyle's P.O.V

"Aaron, Nicholas." Professor Dumbledore read. 

Nicholas went to the small chair and sat down. I don't really know Nicholas, I just see him in the school and in classes usually but I've never really talked to him. He's one of the honor students, I guess. I think he's gonna be in Ravenclaw. 

There was silence, all the eyes were on Nicholas, all were probably guessing what house he'll be in. Hoping he will or wont be with them, judging him by his appearance. Not like I don't do this, but I really hate this habit I have. 

"HUFFLEPUFF" The sorting hat hollered. wait, what?

The first table on the right all started cheering and then Nicholas went to their table as the professor next to him instructed. 

I suddenly noticed that the woman who we followed after leaving the train was sitting in one of the four tables, the first one to the left. The second table had another female professor in it, the other had a male professor and so did the Hufflepuff's table. Professor Dumbledore cleared his throat and the whole hall went into silence again.

"Abbott, Ruby." Professor Dumbledore read. 

Ruby looked so nervous, she hesitated first, then she took a deep breath and she moved to the small chair that stood in front of her. Argus held the hat again, Ruby sat. The sorting hat started murmuring some stuff that I could not hear, it took it a bit of a time until it finally spoke again, 

"SLYTHERIN!" it shouted. Everyone was shocked, Ruby herself was quite shocked. The students were all staring at her, some got their eyebrows crossed and some their mouths open, our school students were puzzled by Ruby's and the other student's reaction. The table next to the Hufflepuff's had the most puzzled expressions I noticed. Ruby looked at the professor next to her, then to professor Dumbledore, he nodded and so she walked to the table next to the Hufflepuff's and sat there. Why were they that shocked? Everyone was still staring at her, she looked rather embarrassed. Then somebody spoke. 

"How?!" A girl said. "She's a muggle!!" 

Some people shrieked, others just agreed.

"I'm a squib. And, I'm a pure-blood -Not that I care about this none sense." she added fast. 

Professor Dumbledore cleared his throat again. 

"Alford, Kyle." He read. I got so excited when I heard my name, I was looking forward to knowing what house I'll be in. As I sat on the sorting chair I waited for the hat to say something, I didn't wait long, right after it touched my head it sang. 


Professor Dumbledore signaled me to join the first table to my left, its students were all up, cheering and clapping their hands, welcoming me to their house, I really liked them. I saw the girl with the red hair I saw in the train, and next to her stood Lupin, the boy who was with her. Beside them was a dark-haired boy, I stood next to him.

Professor kept on reading the names, two other boys were in Hufflepuff, a girl was in Ravenclaw and then another boy was in Gryffindor, then he read Alex's name, the first thing that got to my mind was, man! She's nervous!



Alex's P.O.V

"Cross, Alex." I heard my name getting read like it belonged to someone else. At first I didn't move, I was so nervous. What if I was in Slytherin too, and everyone looked at me the way they looked at Ruby? What if it was even worse? Every step I took towards that chair got me more nervous, it was like I was being lead to a place where people decided to either kill me or just let me live, I don't know why I felt like this, it was all ridiculous, but I really wanted to be with Kyle and I really was nervous of this whole new-school-for-a-month thing. I finally sat down, took a deep breath and heard the murmurs of the sorting hat. 

"Hmm, let's see ... Some loyalty, would be a good - no ... Well I'm not sure about Slytherin, although your could do well there ... Humphh.." Not only I was nervous, but the sorting hat's hesitation made me get even more nervous, I felt like I didn't have a place in here, I was just not that smart, loyal, brave or ambitious. "Well, you've got some bravery, hidden bravery - although I'm not sure ... Wait a second! Oh my god what a brain we've got here! Then it will be...RAVENCLAW!" It finally said loudly. 

I instantly knew where to go, since someone had already gone to Ravenclaw I knew their table, they're the ones with the black-and-blue robes, I loved theirs. I hoped I was with Kyle, I really hoped so, but these people seemed so friendly, they all cheered me up by their welcome. As I sat down beside a brunette girl I looked at the Gryffindor's table. It was now behind me so I had to turn to see it. I searched for Kyle and he was so easy to be found with his casual clothes, I smiled at him and he waved me, I waved back. 

After a while Ethan was placed in Hufflepuff, he looked so happy about it. After all of the sorting ceremony was over professor Dumbledore said in his calm voice, 

"And now, enjoy your feast!" He said as he held up his goblet and tapped it with a spoon. For response to his action, I found all of the four tables absolutely full with food, all types of food you would ever dream of. All types of food I’ve never even known to dream of. I instantly filled my plate with the chicken dish that stood right in front of me, ordering me to eat it. As I took a bite I did realize that this either is heaven, or is magic! This chicken tasted so good! I ate that chicken with so much hunger, only then did I realize I looked like an animal eating it with my hands and biting it so violently and I instantly looked at Kyle's table, expecting to see him already making jokes about the way I ate. But as I looked at his table, someone else caught my eyes, a black-haired boy who sat next to Kyle was staring at me with his eyes and mouth open. I instantly blushed so much, I was so embarrassed of my behavior, why did I have to eat this violently?! I tried to look away but I couldn't because the boy didn't look away, he didn't even blink. The prefect who we saw in the train was on his other side, I could tell he was calling him, then he raised his voice. 

"PADFOOT!" The boy looked at his friend, finally realizing he was there. I couldn't help it but giggle, it was so funny! As I looked at Kyle I found him doing great with those other boys, he was talking non-stopping, I got jealous, I looked at Ethan and I found him too laughing with a bunch of boys and girls who stood by him, I looked at Ruby and she also was in a deep-conversation with the black-haired girl who sat by her. How could they all make friends that fast?! I should probably give it a try too. 

"You like reading?" I asked the boy opposite me. Everyone who heard me started laughing, I instantly blushed. This wasn't a good question apparently, why? I don't exactly know, it just wasn't. 

"I'm a Ravenclaw. We all like to read, we're known for our brains." he said. 

"Ugh! it's OK you don't have to be like this Kevin, she's new and she knows almost nothing about Hogwarts, so save it." she said rolling her eyes. "I'm Max." She added turning to me. 

"Alex." I said. Well, Max seemed nice. 


Ruby's P.O.V


"Are you kidding me? You're the only ordinary one here! They're all freaks!" The girl who sat by me, Katy said. 

"They're not freaks, they're just not magical. Not that I am!" I said very fast. 

"You're not going to tell me next that you're best friend is a Hufflepuff, now are you?" Kate said joking. 

"Actually-" I said rubbing my neck sheepishly, why was I embarrassed with this? He was my best friend whether he was in Hufflepuff or in Slytherin or whatever! 

"Oh, no! Ruby!" She said. 

"What? We're all the same." I said, seriously. I mean what was the point, hating on other people because they weren't "pure-bloods"? Crap. 

"Whatever." Said Katy rolling her eyes. 

I tried to look at the hall, I discovered a couple of things after my conversation with Katy, each table had a professor sitting in it, they were the head of their house. Gryffindor and Hufflepuff both had female-house-heads, we Slytherins and the Ravenclaws had males. Gryffindor's head professor was called, Minerva McGonagall, the Hufflepuff's was called, Pomona Sprout, the Ravenclaw's was Filius Flitwick, and ours was Horace Slughorn. Each house had two prefects, a boy and a girl, the ones we saw early in the train were the Gryffindor's prefects, I haven't met my house's yet. 

I looked around me in the hall and everyone had finished their eating, I looked at the staff's table and found professor Dumbledore like me, discovering this too. He rose up and tapped his goblet with a fork, again everyone fell silent. 

"Now that you've all finished your eating and deserting, off to your dormitories, follow your prefects." He said and then everyone stood up. Prefects were the first to do, so I knew ours instantly, a blond boy and a brown-haired girl. I knew I had to follow these two and they'll lead me to my dormitory. I wanted to be with Katy, she wasn't that bad.
