I stood behind the great, brown doors that i knew would lead to the great hall. It had a beautiful enchanted ceiling that i was dreaming of seeing, and had read all about in "Hogwarts a History." I also couldn't wait to be sorted, I personally want to be in Ravenclaw with Sev, but I don't mind Griffindor. All I know is Slytherin is not an option for me. Although Sev told me i should be in Slytherin.
I heard they're pureblood freaks. Like that Lucy guy with blonde hair. They all end up on the bad side. I know that would never be me. But I also know I want to be with Sev, he told me his parents were Slytherins, I'm afraid it goes by genes. I wanted us to hang out in the same common room, and help each other with homework, but we would have different classes and different passwords. It would be quite a hassle, but i'm bound to be with Molly, I guess. A thin, sophisticated looking lady, who's face was withering with a lot of age, wearing thin spectacles, that slid down her nose as she looked down at the children that stood before her, spoke in a rich accent,
"First years, beyond these doors, you will be sorted into your houses.These houses will be like, as it says in the title, your homes, where you will study, sleep, meet friends, etcetera." she said, pronouncing the rrrr's,"You will gain points when you are most well behaved, and lose points when you do not. and the house cup will be rewarded to the house with the most points at the end of the year. These houses are Griffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. and for those who are wondering, I am Professor McGonagall" she announced, while she gave her glasses a sharp push up her nose. A few boys chuckled as McGonagall clenched her fists in fustration as she failed once again to keep her spectacles from falling off. I was too nervous to laugh. What if I was in Slytherin, or in a house i didn't like? I could never go back, EVER! It would be like that for 7 whole years!! I took one last breath as me and Severus, with all the other students, walked through, to the great hall.
"I will say your names, and you will come forward, place this hat on your head, and who shall be sorted, then you will join your house on one of the four tables so we can begin the first feast." Miss McGonagall said triumphantly. A man that looked fairly older than McGonagall, with long white hair. a long white beard, and a pointed hat, with spectacles like the teacher, who i'm guessing is Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster that I got in my first chocolate frog card, cleared his throat.
"Do excuse me Professor McGonagall, please proceed with the sorting as I have a real craving for the new Ice-cream cakes I have heard muggle chefs make, and I would love a taste after I say a few words."cGonagall looked on the verge of rolling her eyes at the headmaster.
"Yes, Albus," she nodded, she looked down at her list..
"Donalds, Maximilian" A plump boy with fair hair, and torn up robes shuffled towards the sorting hat, shaking in his shoes,
"Let's see then, Loyal, not so brave, no....Not much brains in that large head of yours...better be.....
The third table clapped thoroughly, and he seemed very happy of his sorting. I gulped.
"Pettigrew, Peter" Another even plumper boy, with many warts covering his face and large teath, with tufts of thin, ugly, blond hair, walked, head down, but Professor McGonagall had to help him up because he was too shorts.
"Hmmm...Not so smart..I must say, not so loyal either," he whispered,"better be......GRIFFINDOR."
A couple more names were read, then
"Potter, James." He strode, shoulders back, chin up, and one side of his lip was raised into a mischievous grin. I snarled at such abnoxiousnous, who would ever want to go out with such an idiot. sure enough, a few girls in the back, sighed, their eyes staring straight at James with looks of wanting and love. Honestly!! 11 year olds acting like teenagers, i hope my hormones don't act up so soon.. I still have many years to come. Sev noticed me glaring at him, and glanced at me with a look of understanding, but his expression changed to hatred as he heard
"That's his best mate," Sev whispered in my ear. I raised an eyebrow.
"Generation of Slytherins," He looked disgusted at the thought."Loyal, brave.......GRIFFINDOR."He jumped up in triumph, and ran towards the table..
I perked up. The hat barely touched his head before....."SLYTHERIN"
I slouched, tears welled in my eyes, and Sev looked at me sadly before he joined the table. I wiped my sleeve roughly on my eyes to rub away the tears, loads of names were read.
"Lupin, Remus," was griffindor
The Avery and Lucius guys were in slytherin and Xenophilius Lovegood was Ravenclaw....until.....
"Brains....yes, very smart indeed," I glowed on the inside,"Loyal, Brave.... GRIFFINDOR" I almost yelled with joy of not being in slytherin. I joined the table and sat between Marlene and Molly, who were grifindors too.
"Hem Hem," the headmaster cleared his throat,"I'd like to say a few words; Flobberdubber, ducklerdangle;tinkletoes; and enjoy the feast." With that the plates and cups filled themselves with all sort of foods and drinks. Pumpkin Juice, Butterbear, Fried chicked, barbecued chicken, rice piled with nuts, my favourite was dessert though, they had creamy cakes, and large sundaes topped with whipped cream, chocolate chips, cookie crumbs and sprinkles, I bet the first day of Hogwarts is the best for everyone...but one think worried me.
What would happen? Me and Sev are Best friends forever, is that gonna end because of seperate houses. Oh, Hell to the no......I think.
