Ron asks Bri and Maddi to share a carriage and they say yes. To be honest, Maddi and Bri took the news that everyone at this school is either a witch or wizard better than I expected. Bri did seem a little bit freaked out at first, but then she calmed down and excepted it...at least, I think.
"They took it so well." I whispered to Harry.
"I know, I was expecting them to be like my Aunt and Uncle." He whispered back.
"I don't think anyone could be worse than your Aunt and Uncle." Ron says, butting in.
"Yeah." I agree.
Brianna and me stayed quiet the whole carriage ride. Partly because we were taking in the amazing view, and partly because we were both 400% positive that Ron, Harry, and Hermione were talking about us on the other side of the carriage. We pull up to this enormous castle and my breath is taken away.
"It's beautiful." Brianna breathes.
"The inside is also beautiful, but also quite confusing, follow us, we will lead you to the Great Hall." Hermione informs us.
Hermione leads us through the school gates and a couple of long hallways until we stop at a massive set of oak doors. Hermione then tells us to join our class up at the front of the hall and then her, Harry, and Ron go to one of the four tables in the room.
"Oh my gosh!" A girl named Ella from my school, who I don't really talk to because she only hangs out with popular kids which I am definitely not, gasps while gaping at the ceiling. I was wondering what was so amazing until I looked up also. Even though it was the middle of the day, the ceiling looked exactly like the night sky, and was full of stars.
"It's not actually the night sky, it's just bewitched to look that way." A familiar voice says from behind me. Before I turn around I shoot a look at Hermione, asking her to confirm my suspicions about who this was. I turn around in disgust.
"What do you want Malfoy?" I sneer.
"Call me Draco." He says sweetly. God he was cute. Ohmygods Maddi stop he was a jerk to you on the train.
"Rather not." I retort.
"Whatever," He says impatiently, " I came over to ask you a question, can you just answer it!"
I slowly nod my head in agreement, "Shoot." I say.
" Willyougotothedancewithme?" Draco mumbles.
"What?" I ask.
"Will you go to the dance with me?" He asks once more, a gleam of hope behind his eyes.
He was cute but he was also a jerk. A big jerk. But I ignored the part of me saying that and smiled while saying, "I will think about it."
He nods his head and walks away. As I'm turning back around one of the teachers clink a spoon against their glass and stand up. "Before sorting begins, Headmaster Dumbledore would like to make an announcement."
Beside her and old man stands up and starts to speak, "Hello young wizards, and witches. I would like 2nd year students to note that muggles will be joining them in their classes this year, and will also be sorted into a house. That is all."
The professor who was speaking before stands up once again and walks over to a stool that a hat is on and says, "When I call your name, you will come up, sit on the stool, I will place the sorting hat onto your head and you will be sorted into either Gryffindor- with the brave-, Hufflepuff- with the friendly and patient-, Ravenclaw- with the smart and clever-, or Slytherin - with the cunning."
I draw in my breath as I walk up the stairs to the sorting hat. As it is placed on me I hear it's voice inside my head saying, "Quite a great mind, good student, but also very brave and knows how to deal with people that cross her.... Hmmmm," And then the sorting hat shouts, " GRYFFINDOR!"
I hop out of the chair and my friends Bri and Jake sitting at the table with Ron, Harry, and Hermione so I walkover. I sit next to Hermione.
"What did Draco say to you before?" Hermione asks.
"Oh nothing important!" I say, not wanting to answer the question in front of Harry and Ron, who hate him.
"Mads just answer the question!" Bri says from the other side of me.
"Ok fine! Want to know what he really said to me?" I ask.
"Yes!" Hermione yells.
"He ummmm... asked me to go to the dance with him." I say quickly, hoping Ron didn't hear, but just my luck, he did.
"Why would you even consider going with him after what happened on the train!?" Ron screams and everyone in the hall looks over at us, full of curiosity about the commotion.
"Ron it's fine, I said no!" I chuckle.
After the feast is over one of the prefects lead us up to the Gryffindor dormitories and tells us the password, which is "Exchange".
"Woah, it's beautiful!" I say as I step inside the common room.
