8. The Sorting

When we arrived there was a very tall man, that called out,

"F'rst years over here!!" Me and Ron raced over to him and he grinned at us.

"'Lo, Neville, Ron."

"Excuse me, but, who are you?" Ron asked.

"Rubeus Hagrid, I'm Gamekeeper at Hogwarts. I hope you enjoy it. F'rst years come to the lake! Four to each boat!!" I rode with Ron, Harry, and Hermione up to the castle. When we arrived, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was beautiful!!! There was Professor McGonagall and she said,

"In a few moments you will walk into the Great Hall and be sorted into your Houses. I will be right back." She said. A boy with sleek blonde hair walked up to where I was with my friends.

"So, it is true. Neville Longbottom has come to Hogwarts. This is Crabbe and that's Goyle. And I'm Malfoy. Draco, Malfoy." Harry and Ron snickered. "Think my name's funny do you? Do I need to ask for yours? Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe? And you, Potter, messy hair, you know you really should comb it sometime-" By that time McGonagall had come back and led them into the Great Hall.

"When I call your name," she told us, "you will come forth, I will place the hat on your head, and you will be sorted into your House." She pulled out a scroll, and said,

"Abbott, Hannah." A girl walked up to where the hat sat. Not a moment after it was placed on her head it said,



She finally said,

"Granger, Hermione." Hermione walked up to the hat, and it screamed,


"Longbottom,Neville." It was placed on his head and the hat said, huh, you're very difficult. You could be great in Slytherin but-

"Not Slytherin, not Slytherin." I said.

Alright then,

"Gryffindor!" Everyone clapped for me as I went to the table and ate while the rest of the people were sorted. It was very very good, I don't think I've ever had a better meal in my life. After everyone had eaten, and man with a long silver beard and crescent glasses stood up.

"Welcome to Hogwarts old and new. I would like to tell you that the Forbidden Forrest is forbidden, that's the name. Also Mr. Filch would like for me to remind you that the third floor corridor is forbidden to everyone. That's all for now. Prefects take your House to the dorms." Dumbledore said. Percy led us to a portrait of a fat lady. She was singing when he interrupted her.

"Perturbation Foggiculalis."

"Fine." She told him, and she swung forward to reveal a room with a fire, soft armchairs, and a few couches.

"This is the Gryffindor Common room. The boys dorms are on the right, the girls left." We were a so tired we just went to the beds and climbed into them and rest very well that night.
