9. The Sorting
As the lady led them into a giant room with windows and adults sitting in the front of four long tables. Headmasters Harry had thought to himself. "Now when I call your name you will come up here and I will place the sorting hat on your head." The lady said. "Hermione Granger." Hermione took a deep breath and said,"Oh no... Okay, relax." she walked up there and Ron looked at Harry and said, "Mental, that one I'm telling ya' " Harry nodded but didn't actually agree he just did it without thinking. "Ah, Right then...Mmm Right 'Kay... GRYFFINDOR!" The hat shouted. The Gryffindor table cheered. Hermione jumped off the stool she was sitting on and skipped to her table. "Draco Malfoy" The lady called out. Draco walked up and sat on the stool. Before the hat even touched his head it yelled "SLYTHERIN!" the Slytherin table cheered. Draco smirked and walked off to his table. Ron whispered to Harry "There's not one witch or wizard that didn't go bad in Slytherin." As the ceremony went on Amelia was looking at a man that was staring at her, Jayde, and Harry. Amelia's Scar hurt and she held her knee and Jayde was holding hers as well as Harry Ron whispered to them, "What is it?" Amelia kept looking at the man but said, "Nothing...Nothing were fine" the man was still staring but looked away. A girl was sorted into Hufflepuff. "Ronald Weasley" The woman said reading the scroll. Ron went pale and reluctantly went to the stool. Once the hat was on his head it said, "Ha!" startling the lady and Ron. "Another Weasley, I know just what to do with you...Gryffindor!" Ron sighed in relief and walked over to his table. Then the lady called out "Harry Potter" and all the clapping died immediately. one of the headmasters looked more interesting he was in a giant chair and had a white beard. Harry stepped up and sat on the stool. "Hmm. Difficult very difficult. Plenty of courage I see. Not a bad mine either. TALENT. Oh yes much talent. But where to put you?" Harry started mumbling "Not Slytherin Not Slytherin." The Hat sounded a bit surprised "Not Slytherin 'Aye? Are you sure, you could do great things" the hat started mumbling on and on but then yelled "Betta' be...GRYIFFINDOR!" Harry smiled he got so much applause and walked over and sat by Ron. "Amelia Potter" Amelia walked shyly to the stool and sat down. "Ahhhh. Another Potter, Smart no doubt, To valuable for Hufflepuff... To nice for Slytherin for sure... Gryffindor...or RavenClaw... but I see your talents standing out more in... GRYFFINDOR!" she slightly smiled and walked over to Gryffindor table and sat down next to Hermione. As the applause died down the lady called another name "Jayde Potter." Jayde walked up without any hesitation and plopped on the stool. the hat had just got put on her head and said, " GRYFFINDOR!" Jayde smiled and walked over to her table and sat next to Amelia. Three girls got sorted into Hufflepuff Two boys in RavenClaw and two girls as well, Four boys and Two girls into Ravenclaw. The Head master Dumbledor made a speech and then food of all sorts floated to the table and everyone ate until they could barely stand. Then all the perfects led the first years to there common rooms and told them there passwords. Gryffindor's password was Caput Draconis (Latin for "Dragon's Head") Once everyone was inside Amelia and Hermione talked about some books and what class there looking forward to. Jayde was being stared at so she just talked to Harry. After about half an hour they went into the dormitories Harry named his owl Hedwick and Jayde played with Speck and Amelia decided to name her kitten Romeo since it was a boy and really lovey. Romeo fell asleep on Amelia's head and Speck slept in a cage that had blankets and food and water. Everything she needed basically. and everyone fell sound, asleep.
