7. Waiting for the hat.
Finally I got into a first year boat. After being called losers I wanted to get this over with and show how I'm an awesome Ravenclaw. I sat down and one of the first years from the train sat with me. His name was Mike. He said his muggle friends called him Mike and Ike because he always carried candy. We got into a good talk when someone else came over to our boat.
Surprisingly it was the other first year. A girl named Tasha. We started laughing and playing muggle rock, paper, scissors. All the purebloods started to look over at what we were doing and it was fun to watch them try to find out how to do it.
"What house do you guys want to be in?" Asked Tasha. Mike (and Ike) said Hufflepuff of course. I said Ravenclaw and Tasha started to laugh. "Well we will try not to prank you as much!" She said still laughing. I asked her what she meant and she said the Hufflepuff loved to do pranks on everyone but mostly on the Ravenclaws.
I sat there bewildered. I had no idea Hufflepuffs were wild. I always thought of them as pushovers and nothing more. Tasha and Mike talked the rest of the ride there while I tried to think of Hufflepuffs pulling pranks.
Finally we get there and wait in line for the sorting hat. I stand next to Mike and Tasha and listen to what their talking about. Tasha asked why Mike always liked Mike and Ike and he told her it was because his last name is Ike. They were laughing when the sorting hat was sighing so I didn't hear it but I heard the names starting to be called.
Mike went the first at of all of us and we could hear people laughing about his last name. Finally the hat yelled Hufflepuff like planed.
Then it was Tasha's turn and then again it was Hufflepuff. I felt kind of bad that I would never really see them again because Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws don't mix.
