12. The Sorting

After we all disembarked from the boats we were shown to the entrance room of Hogwarts and I thought that it was a bit grand for an entrance hall but nice all the same. I was looking round when a girl came up to me. "Hi!" She said a bit to enthusiastically for me "I'm Ally Most that by the way is pronounced Moss-t and I saw you on a boat with my brother!" 'Ok' I said not entirely sure where this was headed "he really likes you" she said "right" I told her 'I'll keep that in mind' smiling 'anyways I'm Aliona Mal- sorry Potter' "Aliona Potter!" Ally said her eyes wide "are you by any chance related to Harry Potter?" "Maybe" I said vaguely "Hey Ally!" A girl shouted "come over here" "See you around Aliona" said Ally 'See you around Ally' I said. I looked around and saw Draco walking over to Harry and saying "So it's true, what they're saying on the train, Harry Potter has come to Hogwarts" there was a load of muttering before Draco continued "The name's Malfoy, Draco Malfoy" Draco was then interrupted by a snort from the red head next to Harry, but this didn't deter him, instead he continued "Think my name's funny do you? Well there's no need to ask yours, red hair and a hand-me-down robe, you must be a Weasley." The red head scowled at Draco and muttered something under his breath while Draco said to Harry "You'll soon find that some wizarding families are better than others, I can help you there" and with that he stuck out his hand waiting for Harry to take it but he never did, instead he glared at Draco and said "I think I can tell the wrong sort for myself, thanks" and enemies were born. I still think to myself what mine and Harry's life would've been if he had decided to befriend Draco at the beginning of their Hogwarts life. While Harry and Draco had half a staring match a tall lady with rectangular glasses and a tight bun appeared out of nowhere and Draco strode away "is there a problem here?" She asked "No" replied Harry, the lady looked at him but didn't press him any further. "Now" she said "I am Professor McGonagall and I am deputy head for Hogwarts" she took a breath and continued "While you are at Hogwarts your house will be like your family, your triumphs will earn you points while any mischief making will lose them, once you are sorted you will be part, a small part, of winning the House Cup, a trophy awarded to the house with the most points." As she said this she looked straight at me and I never knew if it was accidental or purposeful, all I knew was a feeling of power and somehow I managed to make her turn away and focus on someone else. McGonagall continued "In a few minutes those doors will open and you will stand together at the front for your name to be called and you will walk up the steps to the-" she was cut off short as the doors opened and a scruffy man, with a creepy cat beckoned us in with a wrinkled hand. We all walked down to the front of the hall and a girl behind me said "that's not really the sky, it's just the roof it has been enchanted to look like that, I read it in Hogwarts a history" I inwardly groaned and thought 'please not in my house miss know-it-all' then I saw a dirty, tattered hat and knew that, that was the sorting hat. I then heard the red head's voice "we've only got to try on the hat, Fred was going on about wrestling a troll!" I grinned and seriously hoped he would be in my house. I heard a cough and noticed that it had come from the hat, the next thing it did was awesome and completely unpredictable, it began to sing:
" Oh you may not think I'm pretty but don't judge on what you see, I'll eat myself if you can find a smarter hat than me. You can keep your bowlers black and your top hats sleek and tall, for I'm the Hogwarts sorting hat and I can cap them all. There's nothing hidden in your head the sorting hat can't see, so try me on and I will tell you where you ought to be. You might belong in Gryffindor where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve and chivalry sets Gryffindors apart. You might belong in Hufflepuff where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil. Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw if you've a ready mind, where those of wit and learning will always find their kind. Or perhaps in Slytherin you'll meet your real friends those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends. So put me on, don't be afraid and don't get in a flap, you're in safe hands (though I have none) for I'm a thinking cap!"  There was a round of applause and I was part of it as I thought that the song was amazing and very well thought out. Then when the clapping had ceased McGonagall clapped her hands together and said "When I call your name you will walk up the steps, sit on the stool and wear the hat who will decide which house you will be in" "first up is Hermione Granger" the girl walked up and put on the hat and after careful consideration she was sorted into Gryffindor. Next up was Leo Most and I recognised him as one of the boys from the boat, he was sorted into Ravenclaw and his sister was sorted into Gryffindor. Then Neville Longbottom was sorted into Gryffindor and the red head who's name was Ron was also sorted into Gryffindor and Harry Potter as well, then it was my turn. I walked anxiously up to the hat stool and I could hear the muttering, the muttering that was louder, much louder than Harry's and I was cross but at the same time curious 'Why were they muttering?' I asked myself and only later did I find out why. Anyway I walked up to the hat, the nerves swelling up while I sat on the small, rickety stool and had the dirty, frayed hat placed on my head. As soon as it touched it I heard it talking to me but through my mind, it said "Difficult, very difficult. Clever, brave, loyal, shrewd. Your mind yearns for Gryffindor , yet your heart yearns for Slytherin, so where to put you? Hmmm... I say Gryffindor!!!" I gasped and thought about Draco in Slytherin but then my mind drifted back to Harry and Seamus and Dean,maybe Gryffindor wasn't such a bad idea after all...
