7. Chapter 7
During the sorting ceremony all the first years as well as me, Kassie, Sadie, and Daniel would be sorted into our houses. Before we were sorted we were put in alphabetical order, I was the eighth person in line behind my brother and sisters. The first person was called Samantha Astrid, she was sorted into Hufflepuff, the Hufflepuff table cheered as she made her way over to sit with them. Shortly after her it was Daniels turn, he walked up in front of everyone and had the hat placed on his head, Daniel was a shy kid, he didn’t like drawing attention to himself. He, just as the first girl was placed in Hufflepuff, I clapped for him as he walked to the table. Next was Sadie, she was the opposite of Daniel, she loved being the center of attention. She smiled widely at the crowd, the hat announced that she would be placed in Slytherin house. Kassie was placed in Hufflepuff, she was a lot like Daniel so I assumed she would be. Next it was my turn, I walked up to the front and had the hat placed on my head, I knew it could talk but it still startled me when it yelled out Gryffindor. I smiled, all the Gryffindors were cheering and smiling at me, I walked over and sat in between a girl with long blonde hair and a boy with fiery red hair. The girl across from me had bushy brown hair and her teeth were just a little bit too big for her face, she smiled at me and stuck her hand out across the table to me. I shook it “I’m Hermione Granger, welcome to Hogwarts” she said.
