1. The Beginning

"Slytherin!"

* * * * * * * * * *

I wake with a start. Only a dream, only a dream. Hopefully it doesn't come true. The Potters have been in Gryffindor for generations, I'd hate to be the Potter to ruin it.

"Lily, breakfast!" Mum shouts from downstairs.

"Coming!" I jump out of bed and slip on my robe, exiting my room. As I walk down the hall, I pass what I like to call the Tree Room. The whole room is a family tree, not ours though, the Blacks.

Dad's the only one that really goes in there though. He likes to be alone. Mum says he's been through a lot, and that's his way of coping.

As I walk downstairs and into the kitchen, I see the table set out in front of me. As usual, the dirty dishes are clearing themselves from the table and floating into the sink to be cleaned. It's normal to see that sort of thing here, we're a magical family after all.

People are bustling all around, rushing to catch their trains, talking on the phone about their next meeting. Muggles are definitely strange. They all walk around with their cell phones and laptops, always concerned about whatever they're doing tomorrow. I've rarely seen any one really living in the moment. Like I said, strange.

"Me first!" James runs into a wall. Well, through the wall. Dad and Albus follow, then Mum and I run through. I've gone through the wall before, and the feeling is wonderful. It's like this rush of energy, and the all of a sudden, you're in a different world.

The train blows it's whistle and people start boarding. I turn to my mother and say, "What if I'm not in Gryffindor?"

"Lily, none of that matters. You are a beautiful witch, with so much potential. Whatever house you go to will be lucky to have you"

"Yeah I guess"

"You know what, if it makes you feel better, you can write as soon as you get to your dormitory. You can tell me all about it. Okay?" My mum is amazing, she always knows what to say.

"Okay. Love you" I reply, giving her a hug.

"I love you too sweetheart"

I turn to my dad, and he bends down. "You'll be great," he says. "Thanks Dad" I hug him.

"C'mon Lil, we have to go" Albus is waiting for me, and we get on the train together. After walking down the hall for a little while, we enter one of the compartments. Inside is my brother James, as well as Rose and Hugo Weasley, my two cousins. I sit down beside Rose. "Here we go" she says.

I wave to my parents as the train leaves the station.
