33. The Sorting Ceremony
All the first years entered the castle with Hagrid and then they went to be sorted. Solomon was terrified!What if they out him in a house for losers?
The Great Hall was magnificent. Solomon heard a first yeah explaining the history of Hogwarts to another first year. Griffith whispered to him:
Griffith - "That's Hugo Weasley. The son of Hermione and Ron Weasley. Complete show-off, just like his mother."
Solomon nodded. He was rather enjoying listening to Hugo's explanation about everything. He decided to go over and talk to him while Griffith was chatting up one of the girls.
Solomon - "Hi. I'm Solomon Malfoy" -holds out hand-
Hugo - "Hi! I'm Hugo Weasley" -shakes hand-
Solomon - "Are you from a magic family? All magic?"
Hugo - "Do you mean pure-blood family? No I'm not. My mom is a muggle-born so I'm a half-blood. What about you?"
Solomon - "Well.. To be honest I don't really know...."
And then the Sorting Ceremony begins!
