6. Chapter 6

{Fun Fact: Charlotte's name was originally going to be Hailey Potter, but the more I thought about it the less I liked it because Harry and Hailey were too close to the same; and I'm pretty sure Lily & James wouldn't have done that}

 

  The first day of the semester started the next day and Charlotte had promised Harry that she would sit with him at breakfast. Charlotte dressed in her robes and she and Ginny made their way to the Great Hall. She saw Bryce already seated at the Ravenclaw table with his blue tie on; and when he looked up he smiled and waved at her. As promised Charlotte found Harry and sat by him, he seemed to be less upset and he made a small smile at her. They made light conversation which was still very awkward. How could we be siblings? She constantly asked herself when they stopped talking to eat. She knew they looked alike even she couldn't deny their many resemblances, but there was something about him that was different, something that she couldn't quite pick out.

She looked up ever so often and glanced at the Ravenclaw table, seeing what her friend was doing. They talked for a little longer but when Bryce got up to leave, Charlotte did the same. "Well, I hope you have a good first day." Harry said awkwardly.

"You too." She replied. Ginny told her that she would find her and give Charlotte her schedule when she could. Charlotte raced out of the Great Hall and bumped into a couple Slytherin boys who made crude remarks to her. "Bryce!" She yelled.

The boy turned around and smiled. "Charlotte! I'm so glad to see you. I was just heading to class, do you want to come with me?" He asked.

"Classes don't start in less than thirty minutes and I don't even have my schedule." She explained.

"Professor Flitwick handed the Ravenclaw schedules out a few minutes ago; and it says that we have Potions with Gryffindor, that's you. So come on, let's go." He said walking a few steps away from the entrance of the Great Hall. Charlotte nodded and walked closer to Bryce.

Just before they went any further there was a great explosion from the Great Hall. They turned wide eyed toward each other as a shrieking voice filled their ears. "STEALING THE CAR, I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SUPRISED IF THEY'D EXPELLED YOU, YOU WAIT TILL I GET AHOLD OF YOU, I DON'T SUPPOSE YOU STOPPED TO THINK WHAT YOUR FATHER-" Bryce pulled on Charlotte's robe and they hurried away before the voice could say anymore.

They reached the dungeons with about a minute to spare. They had gotten lost several times and the moving staircases weren't much help. The dungeons were cold and the robes weren't thick enough to keep them warm. "There you are." Ginny said, holding a piece of parchment out to Charlotte. She took it and examined it, it was her schedule. She thanked Ginny but before she said anymore the door swung open and the teacher with greasy hair stood inside.

"Come." He said coldly, and all of the students outside quietly filed inside the classroom and sat in desks. Charlotte sat by Bryce and Ginny was in the desk beside her with a boy in their house. "I am Professor Snape, I do not put up with nonsense and you will not return to my class if you do so. You will learn in here how to create potions and how to properly use them." He talked for a very long time, explaining that the class was going to take effort. Professor Snape made them take notes about ingredients a sleeping potion needs in order to be made correctly. "Today we will start with the Cure for Boils. Begin." Professor Snape said and with a flick of his wand the instructions of the potion was written on the board.

Bryce and Charlotte got their caldrons and began to read the board. Horned Slugs? She had never heard of such a thing. The two began their potion ad Charlotte paid very close attention to make sure her mixture had been on the wait for 10 seconds exact. She watched the Professor as he walked around the class looking at everyone's potions, criticizing almost every potions he walked by. Charlotte knew that she was behind the rest of the class, people had started to talk very quietly as their potions were brewing before Charlotte even got a chance to wave her wand.

"Silent!" Professor Snape hissed. "Mr. McCubbin, did you heat your potion at the exact temperature of 250?" The Ravenclaw boy shook his head no. "You may restart." And with that, Professor Snape waved his wand and the boys potion vanished. Everyone in the class silently went back to work.

When everyone finished their work Professor Snape walked across the room and observed every potion. Charlotte noticed that every potion's smoke was a different color. Charlotte's was a pretty light pink color, while Bryce's was a dark shade of pink. Everyone else's varied, she saw a purple one, a blue, a red, and a lot of pink shades."Ah, Mr. Ghoston. I see you added a sixth stir to your potion. Tut tut." The professor said as he made his way to their table. Charlotte's stomach dropped as Professor Snape looked at hers but to everyone's surprise he glanced at her and muttered a small and cold "Good work." and moved to the next table.

 

"How was your's better than mine?" Bryce said as the lunch bell rang. Charlotte shrugged, she just followed the instructions.

Charlotte's first couple days at Hogwarts weren't the best. Students of all houses were now referring to her as 'The Other Potter' every time she walked through the castle. People were coming up to her talking to her like they had known each other for years; she didn't like that. The classes weren't easy either. During flying lessons a Hufflepuff girl bumped Charlotte and she fell off her broom. The girl apologized but Charlotte already didn't like her. Transfiguration was very difficult for Charlotte, Bryce could change a needle to a toothpick in less than five minutes, but no matter how Charlotte flicked her wand or said the words, she could only transfigure the needle into a thumb tack.

Charlotte now knew why Remus didn't like Gildeory Lockhart. He was a very conceited man, and had made their homework reading the first five chapters on one of his books. Ginny was starting to read the book while Charlotte started on her potions essay. She had no idea how to write a paper about the uses of the six lice breeds and had to eventually ask Abigail Nicola when she went up to the first year girls' dormitories.

Charlotte had just finished practicing her charms spell when Ginny came into the room dressed in her pajamas and robe. "The book is wonderful," She said, placing Gilderoy's book on her side table. "I'm already on chapter eighteen! He is so brave." The other girls chimed in telling about the other books he had wrote. Charlotte had yet to read any of his books, thankfully she had until next Monday to read what she was suppose to.

All the girls sat on two beds, talking about how their first week of Hogwarts had been. One girl, Haley Dakota, even said that a cute fourth year boy spoke to her and helped her find a class. Charlotte looked over to Ginny and saw her writing in a black book. "What are you doing?" She asked. Ginny's cheeks blushed and her eyes wide.

"Oh, it's nothing. I-I'm writing a letter to my mum. You know, telling her how everything's been." Ginny squeaked as she shut the book and put it under Gadding with Ghouls. Charlotte was going to say more but decided against it. She got read for bed and said goodnight to the girls.

So hope everyone liked this chapter, it's a short chapter and I'm sorry about that (hah) but I've been a little busy and Ive been spending time with my family and such. I still feel like its a good size chapter though.

 

SO did y'all like the little 'fun fact' I gave y'all haha, I think I'm going to add those every 6 chapters just because I can. Okay so this is how its going to be:

Hidden is going to be Charlotte's 1st & 2nd year

_____ (2nd book which I'm not telling the name of) is going to be her 3rd & 4th years

_____(3rd book which I'm not telling the name of) is going to be her 5th & 6th years

I don't think I going to do her 7th years because that would take to long and I really don't want to write this for like ten  years haha.

 

So anyways, I hope you enjoy & have a happy new year!
