28. The Inflicting War
I sat there in silence. Being a reader of the Harry Potter books, I wasn't even surprised when I heard a voice talking to me...
"Hmmm..." The hat said "A bright mind... A kind heart... But what is that.... A desperation to prove yourself... A drive for attention... I see war in you future... You could be courageous... You could lead... But who will you lead... Ah, here's what I was searching for... Here it is... Better be Griffindor!"
I heard the room burst into applause again. It was so surreal, I felt like my feat were levitating off the ground, guiding me to the table. Never in my life I thought I would be in Griffindor. I always thought Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff... But never Griffindor. I called back to mind what the sorting hat had said I sense war in your future... What did it mean by that? War with who? internally or externally? And what made it choose Griffindor? It said something Ah, here's what I was searching for... Here it is... Here what is? What did it find in my mind that could possibly make it choose Griffindor?
"Grace! Grace! Their coming out!" Rose whispered excitedly into my ear
