9. Year One-Chapter Nine
"Oh god."I hear."Her cheek can't be fixed?" "I'm afriad not."I open my eyes to see Dumbledore and Harry talking."What?"I ask."Your cheek.You have a scar now."I look in the mirror across from my bed and Harry's right a slashed star scar had been placed where I was slapped.I laid back."May I have one of yours flavored beans?"Dumbledore asked.I sat up.I nod watching him open the box and pull on out."Alas,ear wax."I let out a small laugh and he walked out.
Harry and I lean over the railing."All right there Ron?"Harry asked."All right.You?"Harry smiled"All right.Hermione?" "Never better.""Your cheek."Ron says pointing at his cheek."Well,I was slapped by Voldemort's minion."I say tracing the star."I think it's cute."I hear and turn to see Fred."Hey."Harry says."She's eleven."I rolled my eyes."So are you Harry."OI say and walk down to Hermione."What were you thinking!?"Hermione asked."Following him."I shrugged."I guess the same thing you three were when you came."I say smiling wide."Gosh."Hermione said and pulled me into a hug.
"Another year gone. And now, as I understand it, the house cup needs awarding, and the points stand thus. In fourth place, Gryffindor with 312 points."Harry,Hermione,and I ducked hiding our heads."Third place, Hufflepuff, with 352 points."There were some claps."In second place, Ravenclaw, with 426 points."A little more clapping than before."And in first place, with 472 points, Slytherin House."The cheers that broke out were loud and very unneeded."Yes, yes, well done Slytherin, well done Slytherin.However, recent events must be taken into account. And I have a few last minute points to award.To Miss Hermione Granger, for the use of cool intellect when others were in great peril, 50 points."I smiled clapping."Good job."I whispered to her."Second, to Mr. Ronald Weasley, for the best played game of chess that Hogwarts has seen these many years...50 points."I smiled and clapped along."And third, to Mr. Harry Potter, for pure nerve and outstanding courage, I award Gryffindor house 60 points." "We're tied with Slytherin!"Harry exclaimed."It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends. I award 10 points to Neville Longbottom."Everyone went to cheer but Dumbledore held his hand up."Finally,to Ms.Tiger Potter for a great deal of bravery to make sure her true family is safe,20 points."I smiled wide as Harry,Hermione,and Ron hugged me."Assuming that my calculations are correct, I believe that a change of direction is in order."He clapped and the green banners changed to red."Gryffindor wins the house cup!"We all cheered throwing our pointy hats up.
I frowned as I pulled back from Hagrid's hug."I'm gonna miss you."I say and walk over to Hermione."Oh, listen,Tiger and Harry, if that dolt of a cousin of yours, Dudley, gives you any grief, you could always, um, threaten him with a nice pair of ears to go with that tail of his."I laughed."But we aren't allowed to use magic outside of Hogwarts."I say."He dopesn't know that."Hagrid said with a wink."Feels strange to be going home don't it?"Hermone asked."We aren't going home."I say looking back at Hogwarts."Not really."Harry finishes as we slid in and found a compartment.
