Werewolf and Mermaid at Hogwarts

A mermaid and a werewolf at a school of magic. It sounds kind of... crazy, right? Well, I can assure you, this story is perfectly normal...
If you consider 'normal' being: the mermaid and werewolf becoming friends, meeting the Boy-Who-Lived, facing a horrid person, and finding out their even more different than you could imagine.
...Okay, maybe it isn't so normal...


9. The Sorting (Third Person)

   "Look! It's Hogwarts!" Kayla yelled.
   Alot of the first-years were cramming for their first look at the magnificent castle called Hogwarts, yet most of it was covered by trees.
   "We're nearly there!" Coraline said, excitement in her voice.
   The two girls smiled at each other, then they both got their trunks down from the shelves.
   A voice echoed through the train.
   "We wil be reaching Hogwarts in five minutes time. Please leave your luggage on the train, it will be taken to the school separately."
   "Oh, now you tell us!" Kayla shouted into thin air while Coraline snickered a little.
   "Coraline, I thought we were friends!"
   By now, Coraline was full out laughing while Kayla was pouting.
   Five minutes of tense waiting passed, and it was time to go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
   "Firs' years! Firs' years, over here!" they heard a familiar giant shout.
   "Hagrid!" Coraline and Kayla shouted together. They then looked at each other, shouting "Jinx!"
   They both laughed, then went over to where they heard Hagrid's voice.
   "Is everyone 'ere? Alrigh', follow me."
   After a minute of walking, the first-years of Hogwarts found themselves looking at boats, obviously which were going to take them across the giant lake.
   "Are you sure these are sturdy?" Kayla asked, rather worriedly.
   "'Course!" Hagrid replied, "Four to a boat!"
   Kayla, rather reluctantly, climbed in a boat with Coraline and the Granger twins.
   The boats started to run by themselves, and Kayla gripped the edges of the boat, pale as Coraline.
   "You don't have to worry." Hermione said to Kayla.
   "These boats are enchanted, they can't tip over.*" Sophia continued for her sister.
   This comment just made Kayla grip the sides tighter.
   "Kayla, what's wrong?" Coraline asked worriedly.
   Kayla mumbled back something no one should have been able to hear, but somehow, Coraline did.
   "It can't be that bad!"
   "Sorry, but what did you say?" Sophia said.
   "We couldn't hear you." Hermione continued.
   "I-" Kayla started, but was interrupted by the magnificent sight of...
   Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
   "Kayla!" McGonagall announced. Immediatly whisperings started.
   "Doesn't she have a last name?"
   "Maybe she's ashamed of it?"
   "Her parents could have disowned her..."
   As Kayla heard these, her eye twitched, and she took a deep breath in before going up to the stool.
   Having the hat placed upon her head, Kayla heard a whispering.
   "Hm... So, you're sneaky, sly, but only because of you're past..." The whisperings, Kayla assumed was the hat, said, then continued, "You would do well in Slytherin, especially with that extra quality of yours, but you would do well in Gryffindor also, brave heart and mind. Well, we can easily sort out Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff-"
   "Hey!" Kayla said angerly.
   There were giggles around the room, but ignored by the sorting hat and Kayla.
   "Not meant as an insult, just that they won't do as well for you as Gryffindor and Slytherin, but which one...
  "GRYFFINDOR!" It yelled for the whole hall to hear.
   As the hat was taken off of Kayla's head, she saw one table cheering louder than the others, and, assuming it was Gryffindor, she sat down.
   "Abbot, Hannah!"
   "Vingarten, Coraline!"
   Whisperings started up again.
   "Vingarten? Wasn't that the guy who got himself blown up?"
   "Yeah, that guy was an idiot!"
   "Uhh! How many more Vingartens are going to come to this place?!"
   Kayla was wondering where Coraline was going to get sorted into. She had said that her siblings where in all different houses. There was no guarrantee where she was going to go.
   Coraline was there on the stool when the hat was placed on her head.
   "Hmm... So, you're from a family of mixed houses, huh? Well, Ravenclaw and Slytherin aren't matched to you at all, so Hufflepuff or Gryffindor." The voice said, "You are very loyal, but have much more bravery at heart then you realize... so...
   Kayla stood up and applauded for her first friend.
   Coraline stood up after the hat was taken off, and ran to where Kayla was sitting.
   The rest off the sorting was commenced, and...
