I woke up to the sound of my new owl, Breeze, hooting at me. I groaned and turned over to look at my clock.
I bolted out of and quickly threw my pj's in my hamper. Then I quickly got dressed in my new school uniform.
I ran out the door only to be met face first into a person.
"Ah! You're up! That's brilliant, I was just about to wake you up!" She said excitedly to me. I smiled rubbing my head sheepishly.
"Yeah, er... Sorry about that mum. I forgot to set my alarm to 6:00 AM." I replied guiltily to her. She only smiled and looked at me.
"Not to worry dearest, You aren't late, in fact, you're early!" She replied happily.
I tilted my head and looked at my watch.
"But, I thought school starts at 7:00 AM..." I said trailing off.
"Oh no! School starts at 8:00 AM. Breakfast starts at 7:40 and ends at 7:55 Jessamine." My mother explained to me. My mouth turned into a 'o' shape.
"Ohhhh..." I said laughing slightly.
She smiled before putting her hand on my back leading me to the Dining Hall. Just before we entered the double doors she stopped and looked down at me.
"Jessamine, I am to lead the first years here. So if you don't mind, could you find your own seat?" My mother asked me. I smiled and nodded my head. She softly hugged me and wished me a quick 'good luck' before going to fetch the first years.
I sighed softly and opened the double doors. Noisy chatters was the first thing I heard. There wasn't anything on the tables yet, besides the silverware. I continued walking only waving at those who smiled and waved at me. I walked up to the seat that was claimed as mine, which was one chair away from the Headmaster.
"Good morning Jessamine, are you excited to start school today?" Dumbledore, the Headmaster, asked me. I nodded excitedly and was about to speak before the double doors opened.
"We shall save this conversation for later." Dumbledore said to me before winking. I smiled and nodded.
My mum and the first years continued walking until they got right in front of the table where we sat.
"Gather around here please." My mum order the first years. The first years all gathered around and waited patiently for their instructions.
"Now, before you begin, Professor Dumbledore would like to say a few words." My mother said before turning to meet the eyes of the Headmaster. I looked towards the Headmaster to see him standing up.
"I have a few starting terms notices I wish to announce. The first years please note that the Dark Forest is strictly forbidden to all students, also our caretaker, Mr Filch, has asked me to remind you that the third floor corridor on the right hand side is out of bounds. To everyone who does not wish to die a most painful death. Thank you." After he sat down my mum lifted up her scroll and started to give instructions.
"For when I call your name, come forth, I shall place the sorting hat on your head, and you will be sorted into your houses"
After that she started to read off the list of names on the paper.
"Hermione Granger." I looked towards the girl who was getting up.
"Oh no, okay, relax." I heard her comfort herself. I hid my mouth trying to hide a giggle after I heard a red head whisper to a boy with glasses and black hair.
"Mental that one, I'm telling ya." he said to the kid with the glasses, him only giving a slight nod.
The girl named Hermione walked up and softly sat down.
"Ah, right then, hmm right. Okay... Gryffindor!!" The Sorting Hat yelled, followed by the cheers of their fellow Gryffindors.
I softly clapped for along with Dumbledore and the rest of the professors. After the clapping stopped my mum continued reading from the list.
I looked in the crowd of first years to see that kid in a blonde hair stepped forward slowly. I looked as though he would snap at anyone who looked at him.
He walked towards the hat and sat down on the chair. Before the hat was placed on his head the hate announced his house.
Claps and cheers followed from the Slytherin table. As he was sat down people around him smacked him on the back in a friendly gesture. I clapped for him softly as well just to be nice.
"Susan Bones!!" My mother continued.
I saw a curly red head girl started to move slowly to The Sorting Hat nervously. As the hat was placed on her head it began speaking again.
"Let's see...I know, Hufflepuff!" The hat yelled. Instantly the Hufflepuff table started to clap and cheer loudly. I clapped softly as well, along with the professors.
"Ronald Weasley!!" My mum said after the cheering died down.
I smiled at as a boy with red hair started to walk up to the sorting hat nervously . As the hat was placed on his head it yelled a loud "ha!' making my mother flinch away from the hat.
"Another Weasley?? I know just what to do with you! Gryffindor!!" It yelled out. I chuckled softly and clapped loudly for him. Dumbledore looked towards me and winked. My smile widen and I turned to look at my mother.
"Harry Potter!" My mother said making everyone to instantly stop talking. Whispers and gasps spread throughout the room. Dumbledore moved forward slowly as if to listen better. My eyes widened slightly before going back to it's normal size. The boy who was talking to the kid name Ronald started to move forward slowly. He sat down and waiting for him to be sorted in his house.
"Hmm... Difficult,very difficult. Plenty of courage I see, not a bad mind either. There's talent, oh yes, and a first to prove yourself, but where to put you?" The Sorting Hat said.
"Not Slytherin, not Slytherin." I heard the boy whisper to himself.
"Not Slytherin eh? Are you sure? You could be great you know, it's all here, in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness! There's no doubt about that, No? Well if you are sure... better be, Gryffindor!!!" The Sorting Hat finished. Loud cheers and claps erupted in the large room. Every Gryffindor stood up and clapped for him, I clapped loudly and so did the rest of the professors.
"Jessamine Snow!" My mother called my name. I silently stood up, receiving confusing stares from the first years.
"Why is she with the professors?" One blonde headed girl asked the kid next to her. The guy she was talking to only shrugged his shoulders.
I walked up to my mother and smiled at her. She smiled back at me and I quietly sat down, my mother placing the hat on my head.
"Ah, another difficult one, very talented, as well as brave and selfless. Your mind says it all... But where to put you?? Well... It better be, Gryffindor!!" The Sorting Hat yelled. Cheers and clapping from all tables echoed the room. I smiled and gently got off the chair.
"Congratulation dearest, I knew you would make it to Gryffindor!" My mother said to me with a big smile planted on her face. I smiled and looked towards Dumbledore who winked at me. I walked towards the Gryffindor table and sat down next the boy named Harry. I shook everyone's hand around me and sat down.
*Ding ding ding!*
I looked towards my mom who gently tapped her spoon to the glass cup. I looked over to the professor's table.
"Your attention please." she said to the students. The headmaster got up and looked towards the rows of students.
"Let the feast begin!" His soft voice said echoing the room.
Food appeared in front of me causing gasps to echo in the room. I smiled and started to place food on my plate. As I was about to eat a piece of bread, I felt a tap on my shoulder.
"Hello, my name is Harry Potter. May I ask what is yours?" He said to me. I smiled and gently cleared my throat.
"It's a pleasure to meet you Harry, My name is Jessamine Snow." I responded to him kindly. I held out my hand for a handshake. He gladly took it and shook my hand.
"The pleasure is mine Jessamine." He responded smiling at me.
