3. THE SORTING CEREMONY

He sat alone for about 10 minutes until a young boy opened the door. 

"Hi. Do you mind if I come in? There's no space." Remus nodded and looked out of the window. 

"My name is Sirius. Sirius Black." He held out his hand. Remus took it in his.

"I'm Remus Lupin." He smiled then looked away again. 

A couple of hours passed and a woman with a food trolley strolled down the corridor. Remus bought himself some sweets he liked, including some fizzing whizzbees, a couple of chocolate frogs and berry bots every flavour beans. 

"Thank you." He gave the last his money and retreated back into the cabin. Sirius had bought some sweets as well.

"I bought some of those! I love them. My favourites actually." He pointed towards the fizzing whizzbees. "Don't talk much do you?" He stared at Remus.

"Sorry. I'm just a bit scared." Remus replied. 

"No need to be. It'll be a breeze. Mark my words." He gave Remus an encouraging smile and started eating. 

They arrived at Hogsmeade station and Remus stayed with Sirius because he was the only person Remus had met. They got off the train but were told to leave their luggage. 

"Firs years! Foller me! Firs years!" A gruff voice came from a distance and on closer inspection they saw a very large man with long black hair and a big black beard. 
"Firs years! Foller me! Firs years!"

They followed the large man to a lake with many boats set upon it. Sirius grabbed Remus' arm and pulled him into one.

"You can be my buddy now Remus!" He gave Remus a large smile, which he returned. 

'Maybe this wouldn't be so bad after all', Thought Remus. With a clap of the mans huge hands, the boats set off, unaided towards the large castle that stood in front of them. The children laughed, pointed and marvelled at the magnificent building. It was obviously better than many of them thought it would be. 

They got out of the boats. The large man walked up to massive oak doors and knocked loudly. They opened automatically and the first years piled in. They all gathered in front of the great halls doors an waited.

People were whispering to each other as they waited. 

"What house do you want to be in?-"
"-I'm hoping for hufflepuff-"
"-the great hall has an enchanted ceiling you know-"
"-I'm scared. My parents want me to be in Griffindor-"
"-Slytherin all the way for me."

Then the doors opened. Behind them sat a large crowd of pupils separated onto house tables. A tall ish woman guided them through to the front and took out a roll of parchment.

"BIGGS, ADRIAN" the first boy stepped up and sat on the stool.

"HUFFLEPUFF!"

"BLACK, SIRIUS"

"Ah! A Slytherin boy I see. However you do not have the traits of a Slytherin. Where do you belong?"
"GRIFFINDOR!"

"EVANS, LILY"

"GRIFFINDOR!" Lily stepped off the stool and Remus saw her give a black haired boy and weird look. He looked upset.

"LUPIN, REMUS" this is it. He took a deep breath and walked to the stool.

"Ahh! I see potential here. You have the nerve for Griffindor, but the brains and patience for Hufflepuff. Where shall I put you?"
"Erm. GRIFFINDOR!" Remus jumped off the stool and went to sit with the other first years. He sat next to the pretty red haired girl and Sirius.

"MONKTON, GLORIA"

"HUFFLEPUFF!"

"PETTIGREW, PETER"

"GRIFFINDOR!"

"POTTER, JAMES"

"GRIFFINDOR!"

"SNAPE, SEVERUS"

"SLYTHERIN!" The Griffindor table booed and the red haired girl looked at him with a look of sadness of her face, as did he.

"STEBBINS, CARL"

"RAVENCLAW!"

A tall man with a very long silver beard and sparkles blue eyes stepped up to a podium.

"Well done first years! Welcome! Welcome back to our other years! There is nothing I need to say other than have a great year, it will be a good one I believe. We shall eat!" He lifted his hands and dishes upon dishes of food appeared. The first years looked at it all in disbelief.

"Wow! Remus this is pretty cool!" Said Sirius. 

All the school tucked into the crispy roast potatoes, succulent chicken, spaghetti, meatballs, sausages and buttery vegetables. 

When they had all finished they ate dessert. Many flavours of ice cream, jelly, pumpkin pies and more. 

Everything was finished and all of the plates disappeared. 

"That was nice. Lets all get off to bed now, pip pip. First years follow your prefects." Dumbledore sat back down and the whole school left the hall. The red haired girl came up to Remus and Sirius.

"Ooh here comes that girl! We're in!" Sirius laughed.

"Hello. My name is Lily Evans. Pleased to meet you."

"Hi! I'm Sirius Black, very pleased to meet you!"

"I'm Remus Lupin. Hi." Lily skipped off towards some other first years. 

They got up to a fat lady in a portrait and someone said a word. The portrait opened and they all filed in. Behind the door there was a large room covered in the Griffindor red colour with comfy red sofas and a lovely roaring fire. 

"My name is Theodore Savvily and I am your prefect. Do well to remember the word, flobberworm, as it is our password. You may all go to bed."

Remus and Sirius walked up some stairs and into a room where their stuff was. A little fat boy with mousy brown hair stood next to one bed. A tall boy with glasses and black scruffy hair next to another. Remus went and sat on his bed. 

"Hi I'm Sirius Black!" Sirius shook both boys hands. 

"Hi I'm James Potter." Said the boy with black hair.

"I-I'm Peter Pet-tigrew." Said the little fat boy. He seems shy. Sirius walked over and grabbed Remus.

"Well, say your name mate." Sirius asked.

"Erm, my name is Remus Lupin. Hi."
