Random Hogwarts story I wrote for my friend Brittany
I think I'm going to like it here.
I sat alone in the train compartment, staring out the window. The train is traveling to Hogwarts, the school of witchcraft and wizardy, because apparently I'm a witch. Cool, right? Well, it took a ton to convince my parents to actually let me go to the stupid school. You see, my parents are not wizards. They're muggles, which I don't think is a problem, but what do I know? The compartment door opens, distracting me from my train of thought. I look away from the window and see a boy, with blonde hair and bright blue eyes, closing the door behind him. The boy sits down across from me. He smirks at me. I feel butterflies flutter in my stomach. "I've never seen you around girl..." he begins "Are you a first year?" I nod. "I thought so. Well normally first years sit in the front, but who cares? We're almost at the school anways" He says. "Oh.. well then what year are you? I ask. He holds up two fingers and I nod. He nods back before asking "Anyway.. what is your name, girl?" "Raven. Raven Day" I murmur and offer out my hand "and you are?" He raises an eyebrow at my hand. Come on kid it's not rocket science, just shake my hand. "Pretty name" he mumbles and gently takes my hand . "My name's Draco" the boy anwsers and raises my hand to his lips. Draco gently presses his lips to my hand. I feel my cheeks heat up. Draco's smirk turns into a smile as he lowers my hand, but doesn't let go. "Aww.. what a cute reaction!" Draco teases. "What? Oh, shut up" I mumble quietly. Draco just keeps smiling and winks at me. I feel my cheeks heat up again, and Draco starts laughing. I stick my tounge out at him and pull my hand from his. Okay was that my imagination or did he just look disappointed when I pulled my hand away? Most likely. "What are you? Five" Draco mocks, still smiling. I raise my eyebrow at him, sticking out my tongue again. Draco laughs as my eyes wonder back to the window. I can still feel Draco's eyes on me, but he has quieted down. We sit like this for a few minutes. I don't know about Draco, but I felt super awkward. I can still feel the blush on my cheeks. The train slowly comes to a stop. I stand, and so does Draco. "Well.. I should get going. Don't wanna get left behind" I say. "Yeah.. that would kinda suck" Draco agrees. Even though we agree that I need to go, neither of us move. I click my tongue and say "Okay.. well it was really nice meeting you!" I open the compartment door. "The pleasure was all mine" Draco announces. I smile at him. He smiles back. I step out into the hall, wave at him, and then walk toward the exit. I get off the train and walk toward the group of kids getting in boats. A freaking giant with a beard helps me into the boat. He seems nice so I thank him. He smiles at me as we start off toward the school. The two girls, one with blonde hair the other has brown hair, on the boat shoot me a look,. Great... out of all the people to I could be with I get the mean girls. Yay! The girls basically ignore me and whisper to each other, so I just sit there quietly. Well this is fun! When the boat finally reaches the dock. Two girls stand up. Their going to fall into the water. "Hey.. be careful.. you guys are going to fall" I say. The girls look at me like I told them the sky is green. "We aren't going to fall" the girl with blonde hair retorts. The girl with brown hair sneers at me. Then the boat runs into the dock and the two girls fall into the water. They scream while I suppress a laugh. I get off the boat, leaving some guy to help the girls out of the water. Once off the boat I walk toward the group of people. In front of the group is an elderly lady who identifies herself as Professor McGonagall. She is explaining how we are going to get sorted into one out of four houses by a hat. By a hat? Okay, I know I'm new to the whole wizarding world thing, but a hat? I don't understand how that's going to work. Oh well, I'll just end up hurting myself if I think about it to hard! McGonagall starts lining up kids according to their last names. I ended up standig behind a kid named Logan. I can already tell that I am not going to like this kid, he was making a ton of super dumb comments. Professor McGonagall hurried us into the castle of a school. All the first years basically have to run down the halls and enter a huge room full of flouting candles. I guess its some sort of dinning room. As we pile into the room, I can hear applause. Which doesn't make any sense to me. We got off the train and left to get to the school first. Whatever, I give up on trying to figure this magic crap out. An old man, Dumbledore, welcomes us to the school. He is going to be a while, I can tell. So I let my eyes wander. I read the banners that are above the four tables: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. I see Draco sitting at the table with the Slytherin banner above it. Under the Gryffindor table, I see about four kids with red hair. Wow, must be siblings. I start paying attention when Logan, the boy in front of me, gets call up to be sorted. McGonagall places a really old ugly hat on his head. The hat comes alive and yells out "HUFFLEPUFF." I understand what Professor McGonagall meant about the hat now. The table with the Hufflepuff banner stood up and cheered. Its loud and slightly annoying. "Raven Day" Professor McGonagall calls out. The Hufflepuff table calms down and I walk up to the stool. McGonagall makes me sit and places the ugly hat on my head. The hat starts mumbling to its self. I catch a few words: mudblood, Slytherin, Hufflepuff. "If you put me in Hufflepuff, with that Logan kid," I whisper "I will cut you, and I don't now what a mudblood is but do not call me that, because I'm guessing it is not a good thing" The hat laughed, loudly. Everyone in the room looks a little shocked. I'm guessing the talking hat doesn't laugh. Go figure. So the room is silent for a few minutes "SLYTHERIN" the hat called, breaking the silence.The Slytherin table stood, cheering. I rolled my eyes, take that stupid hat off. Some one took it from my hands but I don't care enough to see who it is. I walk over to the Slytherin table looking for an empty seat. My eyes lock onto Draco's. He smiles and motions toward the open seat next to him. I smile back and take the seat. The girl across from me glares at me. She has short black hair. Jeez what is with the girls here? Are the all going to hate me? McGonagall calls out another students name but I tune her out, until she calls the boy before the blonde girl from the boat. "She's gonna trip when she gets called" I whisper. The girl who glared at me asked sharply "how do you now?" I shrug. "Why is she soaking wet?" the boy next to Draco asks. I laugh. "Arielle Savage" McGonagall calls. The girl takes a step forward, then trips. People give me some pointed looks,that I ignore. "SLYTHERIN' the hat calls and I groan. She skips over to the empty seat next to mine and sits. She smiles at Draco. I roll my eyes. "Stephanie Waller" McGonagall calls and Arielle squeaks as the brown haired girl from the boat steps forward. She too gets Slytherin. "STEPH!!" Arielle screams. Stephanie runs over to Arielle and they jump on each other. Then Stephanie sits down next to Arielle. They whisper to each other for a few seconds before turn to Draco. They smile at him. He smiles back. "Hi, I'm Stephanie but you can call me Steph if you want" Stephanie tells Draco, "and this is Arielle." These girls are talking over me like I'm not here. Food appears on the table as Draco replies "Nice to meet you. I'm Draco." Every one starts filling their plates as the black hair girl asks "why are you two soaked?" I feel cold eyes on me. I ignore them and eat some of the rice I put onto my plate. "Raven made us fall into the water" Arielle said coldly. I laugh and say " I didn't do anything. I just saw it happen." "Whatever" Stephanie says. "To be fair I did warn you" I mumble finishing my plate of food. They roll their eyes then stare at Draco. I don't like these girls.I tune out the rest of the conversation. Then after about a hour, the food disappears and we are dismissed to our common rooms. I follow the Slytherin kids out of the room with the floating candles and into a hall of moving stairs. This place is going to be the death of me. As we walk down the stairs I misplace my foot and start to fall. I feel a pair of arms wrap around my waist, from behind, stopping me from falling of the stair case. I turn my head to see it was. My stomach flutters. "Draco.." I gasp, feeling myself blush. "Jeez Raven, be more careful" he whispers. "Um thanks" I mumble. Draco's arms drop from my waist as he say "It's no trouble." Out of the corner of my eye I see Arielle, Stephanie, and the girl with black hair, whose name I found out is Pansy, glaring at me, but I simply smile and follow Draco down to the dungeon, which is the Slytherin common room. When they reached the dungeons, the prefect told the that the password to get in was "Pride." Once we got into the common room we were shown to the dormitories. The girls' dormitories were across from the guys'. Then everyone was free to do what they wanted to do. I headed toward the dormitory but Draco grabbed my wrist and asked "going to bed so soon?" "Yep. I'm five remember" I reply looking at him. He smirked and let go of my wrist. As soon as he let go of me I turned and walked into the girls dormitories. I find my bed. There's a letter on it. It has my schedule in it. I read it over a few times before changing into pajamas. I crawl under the green sheets. I'm utterly exhausted. I close my eyes and smile. I can tell that I'm going to like it here at Hogwarts.
