Their World in my Hands

My choices can change the lives of the ones I love, the ones I hate and the ones I don't know. I am a witch, an undetectable. It's all new to me, I could lead us to greatness or to devastation and I'm not ready for the power, but I have to be. Everyone's relying on me, I have their world in my hands and I cannot let them down...

29. An Unexpected Turn of Events

The crowd of first years came stumbling into the room. All ashen faced and nervous. I spotted Hugo close to the back of the line talking in excited whispers to a rather plump kid with black hair. Despite the cold, all the first years seamed excited.

Mcgonagall did her introduction and the seam of the sorting hat teared open, receiving a collective groan from the school but I wasn't looking...

At the teachers table beside Professor Longbottom was a rather tall wizard hidden behind a cloak. I could just make out black hair sticking out of the robe's head and a pair of bright green eyes staring at me but that wasn't what I was looking at...

On the wizards finger was a ring. It wasn't just any ring... It looked farmiliar in a way, the teachers table was far away from where I was sitting at the back of the Griffindor row but I could see the glint of a black stone inside a triangle engraving. It was one of those things I had seen hundreds of times before but never took notice to...

I could remember it, it was just out of reach in the back of my mind I just needed to grab the thought...

It slipped past me as Lily and Hugo came and sat opposite me, sharing equally large grins... The sorting was over.

Professor Flitwick stood to greet us "Welcome students to another fantastic year at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry..." There was around of applause that quickly died down "I know you're all hungry and ready for a feast but I have a few start of term notices; Mr Filch would like me to remind you of the extensive list of banned objects hung on the front door of the caretaker's office, if you have any of these products and put them into use, expect a detention. Also we would like to welcome two new teachers to out staff. Please welcome professor Salter who will be taking Muggle studies and Professor Williams who is taking the please of our beloved professor Murphy in Potions..."

At that the wizard who was in the robes took the hood off. I saw my eyes reflected in his. The ring, the spell, everything came flooding back. My father is a Wizard.
