7. Gryffindor & First Day

After the feast, I walked with Ron, Hermione and Harry to the Gryffindor common room. Then Hermione told me the password to the common room (Balderdash). Once inside, I looked around for a bit. The walls were covered in portraits of the heads of Gryffindor in the past (according to Hermione). I even recognised one as a young Professor McGonagall.

 

Then Hermione led me upstairs to the fourth-year girls dorm and introduced me to our roommates. Lavender Brown, Padma Patil and Pavarti Patil. After that, me and Hermione headed back downstairs to introduce me to the rest of Gryffindor. I met a load new people.

 

Neville Longbottom, Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnegan are Ron and Harry’s roommates. Fred and George Weasley are Ron’s older twin brothers. Ginny Weasley is Ron’s younger sister. And Angelina Johnson, Alicia Spinnett and Katie Bell are part of the Gryffindor Quidditch team, whatever Quidditch was.

The next morning I woke up eagerly. I threw on my uniform and ran downstairs for breakfast. I plonked myself next to Hermione and grabbed a piece of toast. “Hayden, we need to talk to you.”  Harry said. “It’s about what the hat said last night.” Hermione continued. “Yeah, what about it?” I asked.

 

Hermione sighed, “It said you had a ‘weakness’. What did it mean?” I froze, dropping my toast on to my plate. “I-I don’t know what you’re talking about.” I lied. “Oh come on, Hayden,” Ron whinged “Just tell us.”

“OK,” I sighed “Just not now. I don’t like to talk about it in public.” Then Professor McGonagall came round with timetables. Mine was different to the others because I had History of Magic and the others had Charms.

 

Harry, Ron, Hermione and I decided to meet in the common room at break. Once I had finished my breakfast I headed over to where Ron had told me History of Magic was. I took a deep breath then knocked on the door.

 

“Come in.” A voice from inside said. As I entered I looked around and saw a glowing transparent figure sitting at a desk in the front of the classroom. “Ah, you must be Miss Barrett.” The ghost said. I nodded with eyes as wide as tennis balls. “I’m Professor Binns, please take a seat.” The ghost continued. I took a chair from one of the desks and carried it over to Professor Binns’ desk. “Now,” he said “Lets start with chapter one.”
