Mom: Diana, have you got everything?
Diana: Yes mom.
Mom: Are you sure?
Mom: Okay, well you better go or you will be late.
Diana: Okay, bye mom love you.
Mom: Love you too.
Aunt Mia: Bye Di.
Diana: Bye Mia.
Diana made her way onto the train just in time. She made it to an apartment just and saw her mom and her Aunt out the window. She waved goodbye as the train left the station. –
Tobi: Excuse me, is this seat taken?
Tobi: Do you mind if I join you?
Diana: No, go ahead.
Tobi: Thank you. I’m Tobi Shaw.
Diana: Malfoy. Diana Malfoy.
Tobi: As in the daughter of Draco Malfoy?
Diana: Yeah. Aunt Hermione and the Weasley’s said I would get this reaction.
Tobi: You know them?
Diana: I guess so.
Tobi: So what classes are you looking forward to?
Diana: Potions. You?
Tobi: Charms. What house do you reckon you will be in?
Diana: Mom thinks I will be in Hufflepuff but I would rather be in Gryffindor.
Tobi: Well so far you do seem like a Hufflepuff. I want to be in Gryffindor too but both of my parents were in Ravenclaw.
Diana: What does it matter if they were in Ravenclaw?
Tobi: Because they want me to focus on my studies, its not like I haven’t been studying since I was younger.
A prefect knocked on the door then walked in. –
Prefect: You too had better get changed we will be arriving soon.
Tobi: You can get changed first.
Tobi walked out and Diana pulled the curtains down and got changed quickly. After a few moments she let Tobi in and she was waiting outside. –
Danni: What’s your name?
Diana: Diana. Why?
Danni: I thought you looked cute and wanted to know your name.
Diana: Thank you?
Danni: No worries love.
Diana: Who are you?
Danni: Danni and don’t you forget it.
Diana: I’m sure I wont.
Danni: That’s great. Bye love.
Tobi opened the door when Danni walked away and let Diana back in. –
Tobi: Whom were you talking to?
Tobi: I don’t know who he is.
Diana: Me neither.
The train stopped and the pair made their way off the train and stood in front of a huge man. Diana walked up to him and stood a meter away. –
Diana: Excuse me?
Diana: Are you Hagrid?
Hagrid: Yes I’am. Ho ‘re you?
Diana: Diana Malfoy. The daughter of Pheme Shepard turned Snape and Draco Malfoy.
Hagrid: Oh you is the chi’d of Ph’m and Malfoy. Yo’ is grea’.
Diana: Thank you.
Hagrid: Tha’s okay. Fir’t year’ thi’ way.
He led the way to a large lake and made them get into a bunch of boats. –
Diana: My mom never told me about the boats.
Tobi: Don’t worry they are enchanted and will pull us like there is a rope pulling us to the castle.
Diana: Well at least someone told me.
Then a girl the same age as Diana came up and sat on the same boat as Tobi and Diana. –
Sarah: Told you what? That you’re a filthy Malfoy.
Diana: Excuse me?
Sarah: You’re Draco Malfoy’s daughter right?
Diana: Yeah. So?
Sarah: He nearly killed the Headmaster, and he betrayed the Wizarding world by allowing the Dark Lord to rise.
Diana moved closer to her nearly rocking the boat. –
Diana: The choices that my father made have no impact on who I am today and what choices that I make. Understand?
Sarah: Maybe? Could you entertain me with something else?
Diana: My father and I are completely different and do not act alike. I am more like my mother then I am my father. I may have the Malfoy name but that doesn’t mean I am one by fame.
Sarah: Spoken like a true poet and like a friend of mine.
Sarah: I normally aggravate people to see if they could be a friend of mine and you passed the test.
Sarah: So friend would you mind sitting down before we get to shore because I would rather not capsize.
Diana sat down in complete shock by the sudden friendship. When the boat stopped Diana stepped off with the help of Tobi and then Sarah got off. When Sarah got off she nearly fell into a puddle so instead of walking around it normally she decided to push someone into it. –
Sarah: Move it.
Diana: Are you okay?
Noah: Yeah just fine.
Diana: I’m sorry about my friend she is a little…
Noah: Crazy, yeah Sarah is a little like that.
Diana: How do you know her?
Noah: She is a family friend.
Diana: I’m Diana Malfoy.
Noah: I’m Noah Wright.
Diana: I guess I had better go.
Noah: Yeah, see you around.
Diana had helped Noah up and ran to catch up with Tobi and Sarah; they made their way up to the castle and waited at the bottom of the stairs to be greeted by Professor McGonagall. –
McGonagall: Now in a few moments you will step through these doors to be sorted into either of the four houses; Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Gryffindor or Slytherin. You may make friends in different houses so your parents or your family members had the idea to join the houses in a connected common room; you will still have your singular common rooms but this one is so you may study with those of different houses. Now follow me.
They walked into the Great Hall; the tables were split into the four houses plus the teachers one then the roof was bewitched to look like the night sky. In front of the teachers tables sat a stool with a hat sitting on it. –
That must be the hat that will tell me which house I am destined to be in because of my personality and how my mind works.
McGonagall: When I call your name I want you to come up and sit on the chair and I will place the hat on your head and after you are sorted you will go to your table.
Sarah: I cannot wait I really want to be in Slytherin but if I get something different I really don’t care.
Tobi: Surely you can’t want to be in Slytherin?
Sarah: Why not?
Tobi: Because it’s just crazy to want to be in Slytherin but then just sad if you are put in there.
McGonagall: Malfoy, Diana.
Diana got up and sat on the stool then Professor McGonagall placed the hat on her head. –
Hat: Ah a Malfoy but of mixed blood, Salazar Slytherin wouldn’t be very happy. Though your mother was a half blood your father was a pure blood and your grand parents don’t even get me started on them. Though you in particular are very unique and different. You are smart but not smart enough to be in Ravenclaw. You show bravery for your friends but could that be loyalty but you aren’t a Hufflepuff. You’re a mixture of a Gryffindor and a Slytherin, Gryffindor would allow your mother to be proud but your father would be disappointed and would hate you. Being in Slytherin would make your mother proud as well but your father would be ecstatic. What do you think?
Diana: My mother thought I would be in Hufflepuff because I am kind and loyal.
Hat: But what do you want?
Diana: I think being Slytherin would be interesting but all Malfoy’s are in Slytherin and I think its quiet stereotypical.
Hat: So you don’t want to be in Slytherin?
Diana: I do but I don’t.
Hat: Is it a yes or a no?
Diana: I don’t know.
Diana stood up and walked over to the Slytherin table where everyone was cheering and clapping for her. She looked back over to her Grandmother Professor McGonagall and she looked like she was going to cry. –
McGonagall: Pickett, Sarah.
Diana watched as Sarah stood up this was the first time that Diana had seen Sarah speechless. After a few minutes the hat shouted Gryffindor and Sarah made her way over to the Gryffindor table. –
McGonagall: Shaw, Tobi.
Diana watched Tobi stand up he looked as green as the color of Slytherin. He quickly glanced over a Diana and she gave him a quick smile before he looked away. After a few long minutes the hat shouted Ravenclaw and Tobi sighed with relief, he didn’t look at Diana after that. –
McGonagall: Wright, Evanna.
Diana turned away as the next girl got up she had dyed red hair and was very pale she seemed like a snob and Diana didn’t want to meet her. Looking at Danni over on the Gryffindor table that was staring at her distracted her; she didn’t even hear where the girl was placed. –
McGonagall: Wright, Noah.
Diana’s eyes were pried away from Danni and she watched as Noah stood up and sat on the stool. He was playing with his fingers and seemed sad when the hat shouted out Slytherin. He walked over and sat a few people down from Diana. –
McGonagall: Now you may eat.
Then the empty trays in front of Diana were suddenly filled with food and Diana stood up and sat next to Noah hoping she could find a friend she could trust in Slytherin. –
Diana: What’s the matter?
Noah: My parents are going to kill me for getting into Slytherin.
Noah: Because my parents were one of the few who lost all their family in the Battle, they blame it on the Slytherins because of your father.
Diana: So I guess they aren’t going to like me?
Diana: Well I know from experience that getting food into you will make you feel better.
Noah: Okay, lets eat.
The pair started eating and were very full by the time they had to go back to their dorms but McGonagall stopped Diana and that red headed girl stopped Noah. –
McGonagall: So how is Slytherin?
McGonagall: Well just make friends and have fun and don’t forget to study and work hard.
Diana: Yes Grandma.
McGonagall: All right off you go then, you don’t want to have detention on your first day of school.
Her Grandma walked off and Diana turned around to see how Noah was. –
Evanna: I CANNOT BELIVE YOU ARE IN SLYTHERIN.
Noah: Its not that bad.
Evanna: NOT THAT BAD? Or have you forgotten they killed the other members of our family?
Noah: I haven’t forgotten.
Diana: Excuse me?
Evanna: Who are you?
Diana: I’m Diana Malfoy. Who are you?
Evanna: His sister. Noah you keep away from the traitor’s daughter.
Diana: Excuse me?
Evanna: You heard me right traitor.
Diana: I cannot be help accountable for my fathers’ mistakes I am only held against my own and if you can’t get that round your thick head then maybe I shouldn’t hang around with your brother.
Noah: Di listen.
Evanna: Noah, don’t.
Noah: No you don’t. She is the only friend I have in Slytherin.
Evanna: You don’t have any friends in Slytherin.
Diana: Yeah, not anymore you don't.
Diana walked away and didn’t look back at the guy who was her first best friend. –
