2. Arriving at Hogwarts

SEPTEMBER 1st.

Marcus, Rory and I are at the station,  when I hear a familiar voice, "It's the same year after year. Always packed with Muggles, of course.  Come on. Platform 9 3/4 this way! All right, Percy, you first."

"You guys go on with out me."  I say to my family.

Marcus nods hands me a bag filled with money and leads them through the brick wall.  I turn around to see the Weasleys.  I walk over, "Hi Percy."

Percy forward, "Hi Cassidy." He smiles  and runs towards a brick wall. Amazingly, he disappears right into it.

My eyes go wide. "Woah."

"Fred, you next." Molly says looking at Fred

"He's not Fred, I am!"  George says winking at me.

I roll my eyes and smile.

"Honestly, woman, you call yourself our mother!"  Fred says going along with the joke.

"Oh, I'm sorry, George." Molly apologizes.

"I'm only joking. I am Fred.  Hi Cassidy."  He says with a smile before running through the brick wall followed by George.

"Excuse me! C-could you tell me how to-"  Harry begins.

"How to get on the platform? Yes, not to worry, dear. It's Cassidy and Ron's first time to Hogwarts as well.  Now, all you've got to do is walk straight at the wall between platforms 9 and 10. Best do it at a bit of a run if youre nervous."

Ginny smiles at Harry, "Good luck."  

Harry runs through the brick wall.

Molly turns to me.  "Hello dear!  You excited?"  

I nod, "I am.  Hi Ron!"

Ron smiles.  "Ready to go?" Ron runs through the wall and I follow after.  Men dressed in outfits takes our stuff and begin to put on stuff on the train.

I hug Molly, "Bye Mrs. Weasly."  Ron waves to his mother and we board the train.  "I think they're all taken."  Ron slides open a comartment door, "Excuse me, do you mind? Everywhere else is full."

I can hear the boy reply, "No, not at all."

Ron and I walk in, my eyes light up. "Oh! Hello again."

Ron and I sit on the other side of Harry, "I'm Ron, by the way. Ron Weasley.  I'm guessing you've met Cassidy."

"I'm Harry. Harry Potter."  Harry says

Ron goes agape.  "So-so it's true?! I mean, do you really have the...the..."

"The what?"  Harry asks.

"Scar...?"  Ron asks in a whisper.

"Oh, yeah." Harry lifts up hair

"Wicked."  Ron says with a grin.

A trolley comes by the compartment, full of sweets.  "Anything off the trolley, dears?"  A woman asks.

Ron holds up mushed sandwiches, "No, thanks, I'm all set." 

"I'll take-" I begin.

Harry pulls out coins, "We'll take the lot!"

"Whoa!"  Ron and I say together.

"Go on.  Take what you'd like, you two."

Ron's rat, Scabbers, is perched on Ron's knee, a box over its head.

"Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans?"

Ron nods, "They mean every flavour! There's chocolate and peppermint, and there's also spinach, liver and tripe. George and Cassidy swore that he got a bogey-flavoured one once!" 

I laugh, "I promise!  I took a bite."

Harry quickly takes the bean he was chewing out of his mouth and picks up blue and gold package, "These aren't real chocolate frogs, are they?"

Ron shakes his head, "It's only a spell. Besides, it's the cards you want. Each pack's got a famous witch or wizard. I got about 500 meself."

The frog ribbits, jumps onto the window and climbs up, then leaps out the window...disappearing.

"Oh, that's rotten luck. They've only got one good jump in them to begin with."

"Hey, I got Dumbledore!" Harry says excitedly.

I laugh, "Ron has about 6 of him."

"Hey, he's gone!" Harry exclaims.

"Well, you can't expect him to hang around all day, can you?" Scabbers squeaks  "This is Scabbers, by the way, pitiful, isn't he?"

"Just a little bit."  Harry says with a laugh.

"Fred gave me a spell as to turn him yellow. Want to see?"  Ron says pulling out his wand.

"Yeah!" Harry says happily.

Ron clears his throat, "Ahem. Sun-"

A girl with bushy brown hair appears at the doorway.  "Has anyone seen a toad? A boy named Neville's lost one."

"No."  We all respond.

Hermione looks at Ron, "Oh, are you doing magic? Let's see then."

Ron clears his throat, "Sunshine, daises, butter mellow, turn this stupid fat rat yellow!"  Nothing happens. Ron shrugs.

"Are you sure that's a real spell? Well, it's not very good, is it? Of course I've only tried a few simple spells myself, and they've all worked for me. For example."  Hermione goes over and sits across from Harry. He points her hand at his glasses and Harry tenses.  "Oculus Reparo." The glasses, which nose band is battered, are repaired. Harry takes them off, amazed.  "That's better, isn't it? Holy Cricket, you're Harry Potter. I'm Hermione Granger...and you two are?"

"I'm...Ron Weasley."  Ron says with his mouth full.

I smile, "I'm Cassidy Elms."

"Pleasure. You two better change into your robes. I expect we'll be arriving soon.  Cassidy do you want to come with me?"  She and I get up and leave. A few minutes later we come back.  Hermione looks at Ron, "You've got dirt, on your nose, by the way, did you know? Just there."

Ron scratches his nose, embarrassed.

The train blows its whistle and pulls into an outdoor station. Hagrid walks along the side aisle, with a lantern. People begin pouring out of the train.  "Right, then! First years! This way, please! Come on, now, don't be shy! Come on now, hurry up!"

Harry, Ron and I walk up to Hagrid.

"Hello, Harry." Hagrid greets.

"Hey, Hagrid."  Harry says with a smile.

"Whoaa!" Ron exlaims and looks at me.

"Right then. This way to the boats! Come on, now, follow me."  Hagrid says leading us to the boats.  Harry, Ron, Hermione and I share the same boat, up ahead I see a castle.

"Wicked." Ron says in amazement.  

Once we reach the castle we stop at the top of the staircase.  Once at the harbour we step out and make our way into the castle.  A woman is waiting.  She taps her fingers on the stair rail and walks up to us first years.  "Welcome to Hogwarts.  I am Professor McGonagall. Now, in a few moments, you will pass through these doors and join your classmates. But before you can take your seats you must be sorted into your houses. They are Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Now, while you are here, your house will be like your family. Your triumphs will earn you house points. Any rule breaking, and you will lose points. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the house cup.  The sorting ceremony will begin momentarily."  Professor McGonagall leaves

A boy speaks up, "It's true then, what they're saying on the train. Harry Potter has come to Hogwarts."  In the silence you can hear students whisper, 'Harry Potter?' "This is Crabbe, Kara and Goyle," Draco nods towards two big thuggish looking boys and a girl who looks similar to me. "and I'm Malfoy...Draco Malfoy."

Ron snickers at Draco name.

Draco turns to Ron, “Think my name’s funny, do you? No need to ask who you are. My father told me all the Weasley's have red hair, freckles, and more children than they can afford.”  He turns back to Harry. “You’ll soon find out some wizarding families are much better than others, Potter. You don’t want to go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there.”  Draco extends his hand.

I glare at Dracos goons.  The taller one smirks at me.

"I think I can tell who the wrong sort are for myself, thanks."   Harry retorts.

 Professor McGonagall returns, "We are ready for you now."  She leads us through two large doors and into the Great Hall, where there are four long tables with many kids, as well as floating candles. The roof appears to be the sky.  "All right, will you wait along here, please? "

McGonagall rises, "When I call your name, you will come forth, I shall place the sorting hat on your head, and you will be sorted into your houses. Hermione Granger."

Hermione walks gracefully to the stool.  McGonagall puts the sorting hat on her head.

The sorting hat begins to talk, "Ah, right then...hmm...right. Okay...Gryffindor!!"

Hermione jumps off with a smile and walks to the Gryffindor table and sits.

McGonagall looks at her list, " Ronald Weasley."

Ron walks up. He sits down and the hat is put on.

The sorting hat grumbles,  "Ah! Another Weasley. I know just where to put you...Gryffindor!!"

Ron goes to the Gryffindor table and sits next to Hermione.

"Kara Peters." McGonagall calls.

I smile and watch as the girl walks up to the stool, before McGonagall can even put the sorting hat on it screams, "SLYTHERIN!" The Slytherin house erupts in cheers and applauds as she saunters over to the cheering table.

"Cassidy Elms."  Professor McGonagall calls.

My heart starts to pound.  I walk up to the stool with nervously and sit down.  I can feel my legs start to tremble.

McGonagall puts the hat on my head.  "Loyal, powerful and courageous.  You crave adventure and competition.   You also tend to hold a mean grudge.  You'll be fighting on the side of justice, but that doesn't mean you're not willing to bend the rules.   I say, "GRYFFINDOR!"  The sorting hat booms.

The Gryffindor house erupts in applause.

McGonagall takes off the sorting hat.  I smile happily and walk to the Gryffindor table and sit on the other side of Hermione next to Fred.  "Hi Fred." I say with a grin.

Fred smiles at me, "I'm George."

"No you're Fred." I whisper.

McGonagall goes silent for a minute, "Harry Potter."

Everything goes silent. Harry walks up and sits down.

"GRYFFINDOR!"  The sorting yells.

There is an immense cheering and Harry goes to the Gryffindor table.

Fred and George cheer, "We got Potter! We got Potter!"

Harry sits down.

McGonagall looks down at her list, "Draco Malfoy."

Draco saunters up proudly.

The tattered hat nearly freaks before touching down on Dracos head.

"SLYTHERIN!"  The sorting hat bellows.  

The Slytherin house erputs into a cheer.  Draco struts to the Slytherin table.  

McGonagall dings on a cup,  "Your attention, please."

Dumbledore rises, "Let the feast...begin."

Food magically appears on all the tables, and the hall is filled with awe and chatter.

"Wow."  Harry says in amazement.

Ron begins to stuff his face.

A tiny boy speaks,  "I'm half and half. Me dad's a Muggle. Mam's a witch. Bit of a nasty shock for him when he found out."

Neville laughs.

I zone everyone out and concentrate on Harry who is sitting next to Percy. He leans over.  "Say, Percy, who's that teacher talking to Professor Quirrell?"

"Oh, that's Professor Snape, head of Slytherin house." Percy replies.

"What's he teach?"  Harry asks.

"Potions. But everyone knows it's the Dark Arts he fancies. He's been after Quirrells job for years."

I focus back on everyone else, I glance over at Fred who is talking to George.  I glance at Ron who  just finished a chicken wing.  He reaches into the bowl for more, and a ghostly head pops out.  Ron yelps.

"Hello! How are you? Welcome to Gryffindor."  The ghosts greets

Numerous ghosts come pouring from the walls, sailing along.

"Hello, Sir Nicholas. Have a nice summer?

“Dismal. Once again, my request to join the headless hunt has been denied."  Sir Nicholas says and  begins to leave.

Ron gasps, "Hey, I know you! You're Nearly Headless Nick!"

"I prefer Sir Nicholas if you don't mind. The ghost says.

"Nearly headless? How can you be nearly headless?" Hermione asks.

"Like this." Sir Nicholas says grabbing his head and pulling it to the side. His head is hanging on just by a thread.

"Eugh." Hermione and Ron exclaim at the same time.

Dumbledore rises from the head table, "Off to bed you go, children."

Percy begins leading us Gryffindors to the staircases.  "Gryffindors, follow me please. Keep up. Thank you."

"Ravenclaw, follow me. This way." I hear a male say

"This is the most direct path to the dormitories. Oh, and keep an eye on the staircases...they like to change."  We look up and we see a vast amount of staircases, people walking on them, and some switching places.  "Keep up, please, and follow me. Quickly now, come on. Come on." We begin walking up the stairs.

"Seamus, that picture's moving!" Neville says pointing at a picture.

As we approaching the Gryffindor dorms we come up to a large painting of a large woman in a pink dress.

"Password?" The woman asks.

Percy clears his throat, "Caput Draconis."  The woman nods and the painting opens to reveal a gape in the wall.  "Follow me, everyone. Keep up, quickly, come on."

"Oh, wow." I say in amazement.

We walk Inside common room.  "Gather 'round here. Welcome to the Gryffindor Common Room. Boys' dormitories, upstairs and down to your left. Girls, the same on your right. You'll find that your belongings have already been brought up." Percy announces before going upstairs.

Fred and George walk over, "Hey there, Cassidy." They say in unison with a grin. 

I smile, "Hey Fred, hi George.  Glad I'm in Gryffindor?"

"Of course not Cassidy.  We totally wanted you in Slytherin." Fred says with a wink.

"Yeah, what were you thinking?" George says with a smile.

I roll my eyes, "Don't be weird."

"This weekend you want to pull some pranks with us, Cassidy?"

I nod, "Are you kidding? I'd love to. Night Fred.  Night George."  I say hugging them before retreating to my room.
