Pure-Blood Gryffindor

Jamie-Leigh, or Jamie to her friends, has got a new letter. She usually only gets letters from her dad. She's classes herself as smart and she studies for tests that shes not even sure will happen soon. Her Mother and Father were in Ravenclaw. She will Probably be aswell. Her friend Luna is going up to Hogwarts this year with Jamie. Jamie's a Pure-Blood. She's afraid of things that threaten her family. And she's afraid of the boy...


7. The Sorting Song!


As the door swung open. A tall, black haired witch in Bright emerald-green wizard robes stood at the entrance. She had a very stern face and scared me slightly. "Here are the firs' years Proffessor McGonagall." Said the Giant like man which I now know as Hagrid.

"Thank you Hagrid, I will take them now." And with that she pulled the door wide. We followed the Proffessor across the stone floor. I could hear people in the doorway to our right - the rest of the school are already here - i thought to myself. But as I thought this, Professor McGonagall showed us into a small chamber. We all crowded in and were, rather too close together, looking about nervously. I can tell you its very awkward to be pressed up against at least five different boys at the same time.

"Welcome, to Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry," said the Proffessor. "The banquet will start soon, but before you take your seats, you will be sorted into your houses. The Sorting is very important, because your house will be like your Family. You will have classes with them, sleep in your house dormitory and spend free time in our house common room." 

"The four houses are called; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Each house has its own noble history. While you are here, your triumphs will earn you house points, while rule-breaking will LOSE points. At the end of the year the House with the most points win the House Cup, a great honour. I hope all of you will be a credit to whatever house you are sorted into. 

"The Sorting will begin shortly in front of the rest of the school. I suggest you make yourselves presentable." 

"I shall return when we are ready for you," said Proffessor McGonigall, " Wait quietly."

and with that she left.

--------TIME SKIP---------

The Professor brought out an old ruined hat. There was a complete silence. Then the hat twitched. A rip that looked like its mouth opened - and it began to sing:

Oh,you may not think I'm pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find 
A smarter hat than me.
You can keep your bowlers black,
Your tops hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There's nothing hidden in your head 
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you 
Where you ought to be.
Y ou might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell brave of heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind, 
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means
To achive their ends.
So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And you won't get in a flap!
You're safe in my hands(though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!! 

The whole Hall burst into applause as the hat finished its song. It bowed to each of the four tables and then became still again. Professor McGonagall then stepped forwards holding a scroll.

"When I call your name, you will put on the hat and sit on the stool to be sorted." She explained.
