Is This What I Really Want?

Alyssa Rookwood is the daughter of Augustas Rookwood. It is her first year at Hogwarts, but unlike most people, she is dreading it. Pressure is on her to get into Slytherin, Alyssa wants to please her family but also lead a life. Unlike most Death Eater children, Alyssa isn't blinded by 'the dark side'.


8. Hallowe'en

The rest of my lessons were pretty uneventful. After trying to talk to me, the rest of my class mates realized that I wasn't exactly a social person. Only Hannah didn't give up, and I have to admit, I do quite like spending time with her. It's a shame that I don't have all my lessons with the Hufflepuffs, it would probably be a lot more enjoyable.

Charms was with Gryffindor which was okay. I got paired with Padma Patil who is nice enough, but not so good at charms. It was really annoying because we were learning the wingardium leviosa charm and I just couldn't do it! Hermione managed of course. To be honest, I'm getting a bit sick of Hermione. She just shows off a lot and is quite bossy, I'm sure she is a nice person, but she doesn't trust me and I don't want to waste my time on her. Harry isn't really talking to anymore, I think they have been talking about me. But I don't care. I don't need friends, i told you, I'm not that sort of person. 


It's Hallowe'en today! Time has gone by so quickly. I'v mostly just been studying and reading, I spent a lot of time with Hannah too! She is the first person who I can say is my friend. The great hall looked amazing for the feast today. There were live bats  and candles, pumpkins and all sorts! It was going quite well until that Quirrell guy came in. He teaches Defense Against the Dark Arts. He just ran in shouting, "Troll - in the dungeons - thought you ought to know." Then, guess what! he fainted. he actually fainted. The great hall went into uproar! Everyone was shouting and screaming until Dumbledore let off some great purple fire crackers. We were told to go to our dormitories, and I was not talking any risks! That sort of ruined Hallowe'en, not to complain or anything, but I did kinda want to try some of that pumpkin pie. I mean, they did bring up the food to us, but it wasn't quite the same. I wonder if they found the troll?
