I hopped off of the train with my new acquaintances, Harry Potter and Ron Weasly. We were told to follow a gigantic man called Hagrid, who lead us to the boats that we crossed the small lake with. Once across the lake, we were escorted into the castle, where a stiff and strict lady called Professor McGonagall explained to us that we were to be sorted into our houses by 'The Sorting Hat'.
"These houses may be; Slytherin, for the ambitious; Gryffindor, for the courageous; Hufflepuff for the loyal, or Ravenclaw for the intelligent." McGonagall explained.
I didn't really mind which house I got into, just not Slytherin..
"I shall now lead you into the Great Hall." she said, as she looked at her watch.
A boy with platinum blonde hair approached us, and looked at Harry.
"Harry Potter? I'm Draco Malfoy." The boy said, smugly. "I can help you make the right choices..." The Malfoy boy looked at me and Ron, and smirked. He put out his hand, which Harry declined. The boy threw me a dirty look, and I snorted. What a brat.
We walked into the hall and our names were called out. The first was a boy by the name of Seamus Finnigan.
"Finnigan, Seamus." McGonagall called, and he nervously approached the stool that stood at the centre-front of the hall. An old had was placed on his head, and some mumbling was heard. Then the hat shouted, "Gryffindor!".
The second person to be called was Scarlett. I hoped she got into Gryffindor, the house I wanted to get into, because I really wanted to be her friend. The hat was placed on her head.
"Hmm.. Very Intelligent, you'd do Ravenclaw proud... But I'm thinking Slytherin... Very Ambitious, certainly.. And loyalty lies within you too.. But the bravery in you shines.. Maybe you'll be able to showcase that Bravery this year, hmm? Let's place you in... GRYFFINDOR!" The hat bellowed.
Gryffindor cheered, and I went and sat on their table. I looked up to the staff table; an old man that must have been Albus Dumbledore, sat in the middle of the staff table on a throne-like chair,
