Two Girls, One Stone

Jennifer Lakins and Sarah Lincolns have known each other since birth. They've done everything together, literally. They get their letters for Hogwarts the same day even. They go to Hogwarts and meet new people. Does anything happen when their there? Well, from what they hear and see a dog is gaurding a trapdoor?


4. Chapter 4 Jennifer's POV

             The way we got to Hogwarts was in boats. One's that move themselves. Neville found his toad in one of the boats. Sarah's kittens were in her lap. She named them Snowflakes and Witch.

              Ms.McGonagall had told us to wait in a room till they got the sorting stuff ready. From my understanding the house we get sorted into is like our family. Ms.McGonagall finally let us in.

               The ceiling looked like a skyline of London."it's bewitched to look like the london skyline. I read about it in Hogwarts, A History. " Ms.Know-It-All-Granger said. I'm really not that mean. But she's really getting on my nerves.

                There was a hat on a stool. It was extremely dirty, patched, and frayed. I was so surprised when it started to sing...

"Oh, you may not think I'm pretty,

But don't judge on what you see,

I'll eat myself if you can find

A smarter hat than me.

You can keep your bowlers black,

Your top hats sleek and tall,

For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat

And I can cap them all.

There's nothing hidden in your head

The Sorting Hat can't see,

So try me on and I will tell you

Where you ought to be

You might belong in Gryffindor

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve, and chivalry

Set Gryffindor apart;

You might belong in Hufflepuff,

Where they are just and loyal,

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true

And unafraid of toil;

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,

If you've a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind;

Or perhaps in Slytherin

You'll make your real friends,

Those cunning folk use any means

To achieve their ends.

Do put me on! Don't be afraid!

And don't get in a flap!

You're in safe hands (though I have none)

For I'm a Thinking Cap!"

              The hall burst into thunderous applause. The cap bowed to each table.

              "So we've just got to try on a hat!" I heard Ron exclaim while whispering to Harry. "I'll kill Fred, he was going on about wrestling a troll." I smiled that was the dumbest joke ever. And I'm guessing that Fred is Ron's older brother.

                Ms.McGonagall stepped up with a long scroll and said, "When I call your name, you will put on the hat and sit on the stool to be sorted."

                "Abbott, Hannah!" She plopped it on the Sorting hat. We waited a Moment.

                "HUFFLEPUFF!" Shouted the hat.

                 The table to the right cheered and clapped.

                 "Bones, Susan!"


                 "Boot, Terry!"

                  "RAVENCLAW!" The second table from the left applauded.

                  "Brocklehurst, Mandy!" Went to Ravenclaw also. But "Brown, Lavender!" Became the first Gryffindor. Bulstrode, Millicent became a Slytherin.

                    After awhile I stopped paying attention and started playing with Witch. Later I heard my name get called "Lakins, Jennifer!"

                    I sat down on the stool and put the hat on.

                    Hmm... Interesting very interesting.

                    What do you mean.

                    Isn't there a girl, who you two are inseparable?


                  Bravery Lot's of bravery. You have the hobbies of each house goal. But only one house will help you achieve what's going to happen.

                  Wait what's gonna happen?

                  But I didn't get that question answered. "GRYFFINDOR!!!" It yelled. I put the hat on the stool. I heard the next name "Lincolns, Sarah!"

               Before I sat down I ran up and hugged her took her kittens and sat down at the Gryffindor table. She sat on the stool and put it on her head. A minute past, two, three, fo-

               "GRYFFINDOR!" The hat yelled.

                Sarah sat the hat down, and ran to the Gryffindor, sitting beside me. We started our best-friend/close-sister hand shake.

                You hand five, bring your hand back and slap them back to back, grab your friends right hand in your right hand with the left, bring them down and make come back up as if it explodes, take their left hand in your right same with the left, bring their right hand up going under, bring your left hand between you and your friend.

                Than we sat down getting an applause for doing The Handshake. I picked up Witch, Sarah picked up Snowflake.

               "Longbottom, Neville!"


             "Longbottom, Silyen!"

             Harry, and Ron got Gryffindor along with Ms.No-it-all. When it finished Albus Dumbledore stood. "Welcome!" He said. "Welcome to a new year at Hogwarts, and new students. Now: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!" The plates on the table filled with food. I heard Harry ask Percy one of Ron's other brothers if Dumbledore was mad. But that was before Harry saw the food. I told Sarah about it. She chuckled.

              I had some meatloaf and mashed potatoes that was really it. Until the dinner disappeared and deserts appeared. Sarah and I just had some Vanilla pudding. Literary we could of had any desert we wanted on the table. But we really just wanted Vanilla.Soon all the deserts disappeared as well. Dumbledore got to his feet.

              "Ahem--just a few more words now that we are all fed and full. First years will note the forest is forbidden to all students, older as well." I saw Dumbledore flash his eyes towards Ron's older twin siblings. "Quidit trials will be held in the second week of term. Anyone interested in playing for their house please contact Madam Hooch all first years will not be able to play. And finally if you do not want to die a painful death, will not go into the forbidden room on the left hand side of the third floor. And now, before we go to bed. It's time we sing the Hogwarts song!" The teachers' smiles looked fixed. "Now everybody pick a tune and were off!"

'Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Boggy Warty Hogwarts,

Teach us something please,

Whether we be old and bald

Or young with scabby knees,

Our heads could do with filling

With some interesting stuff,

For now they're bare and full of air,

Dead flies and bits of fluff,

So teach us things worth knowing,

Bring back what we've forgot,

Just do your best, we'll do the rest,

And learn until our brains all rot."

                Sarah and I sang it to the song Witch Doctor and added some of the Witch Doctor words. We started laughing at dead flies which we had turned into 'ooh to the eeh'. Harry and Ron had heard and laughed as well. We were still laughing when everybody else was done singing, which left Ron's older twin siblings singing a funeral march. And we were still laughing after that. We finally stopped when people started glaring at us.

               "And now off to bed. All of you." Dumbledore said the last part partly to the Weasly twins.

               Us Gryffindor first-years students followed Percy Weasly out of the Great Hall. Sarah and I weren't at all sleepy. Must a been we didn't eat much and were used to staying up late.

                 I noticed that the portraits moved. Whispering and pointing at Harry. Twice Percy brought us through doorways hidden behind sliding panels. We than went up many many stairs. We were half way down a hall when Sarah sang "ooh to the eeh the ooh the ahah!" I joined in at "To the ting to the tang the wallawalla bingbang."

                 Percy came to a halt. In front of them a bundle of sticks. They started throwing themselves at Percy.

               "Peeves, " Percy whispered to us first years. "A poltergeist." Than Percy raised his voice, "Peeves ---- show yourself. Or Bloody Baron will hear about this."

                Peeves didn't show himself.

               "Do you want Bloody Baron to be here?"

                 A pop happened, and a little man with evil looking dark eyes, a wide mouth, floating cross legged in the air. With the sticks in his hands.

               "Peeve leave NOW!!" Percy said with lots of force in his voice.

              "No, no, no," Peeves said.

               I pulled a dumdum out of my bag. Before Percy said anything else I said, "Please Peeves." I unwrapped the sucker and handed it to him. He took it, popped it in his mouth, and left.

              Percy started walking soon stopping in front of a portrait with a lady in a pink dress.

             "Password?" The portrait asked.

            "Caput Draconis," Percy said. The portrait opened and Percy climbed through a hole.

             When Sarah and I finally got in there we looked around. It was a common room with a fireplace in the corner and couches and tables. But there was also two doors.

              "Boy in the left, girls in the right." Sarah and I ran up the stairs, fortunately we found a room with both our trunks in it.

               Later I heard Percy yell bedtime. Sarah and I just studied our books till midnight and fell asleep.
