I stare in awe at the ceiling. This really was all magic!
I held up my camera stopping to take a picture, I felt someone bump into me but I ignored it. The ceiling reflect the starry night sky, outside and above the four tables there were floating candles! Would've thought!
I heard stifled laughter around noticing that everyone had already lined up and I was the only one out of place. My cheeks flared up as I ran catching up to them just in time to see the stern-looking woman bring out a stool. What was her name?
Mc....McGonagall! Yeah at least I think that was it. I heard the people around me whisper frantically. I jumped up hoping to catch a glance at what was causing so much commotion....Did we have to fight some kind of monster? Or did we have to through some sort of magical ritual, with fire and colors and... Colin stop it! Snap out of it!
“A hat! I'm going to kill Fred!” yelled a red-haired girl. I turned back to what seemed to be the Professors table noticing that on the wooden stool sat an old battered wizards hat. “A hat?” I said suddenly as if the hat had heard it opened it's...er mouth?
I gasped along with the other kids that like me didn't come from Wizarding homes. We had already seen the talking paintings and the enchanted stairs but a talking hat?
“Do all hats talk?” I asked the blonde girl beside me who snorted.
“Mudblood.” I blinked at her curiously only causing her to laugh.
“Shut up! Don't call him that!” hissed a red haired girl that stood behind me. The blonde looked away ignoring the red head whispering something that I couldn't hear.
Once I was sure the blonde girl wasn't listening I turned to the ginger “um..what's mudblood mean?”
She turned and shook her head “forget it..it's nothing-”
Then it happened I heard my name “Creevey, Colin” her voice sounded sharp as I jogged up to the stool excited (I didn't run because I was too scared to fall over) I took my seat on the stool and suddenly felt my heart sink.
Up until now I had been distracted by all the magic so distracted I didn't notice how big the hall was...or how many students it actually had...I think I didn't even noticed when the witch stuck the hat on my head because I jumped the moment I heard it speak.
“Don't be nervous I don't bite!”
“I'm not nervous!” I mumbled my face heating up causing a few students amusement.
“Let's see, clever boy you are you'd do well in Ravenclaw and you also have a wonderful thirst for knowledge...though I also see bravery.”
“Me smart...I'm not smart.” I said without thinking holding to the stool so tightly I thought I might break it.
“Not smart eh? Very well then do you believe me when I say I see bravery”
“No..I'm just normal.”
“Normal boy, eh? Very well if you insist then it best be....”
I shut my eyes maybe this was all a dream...
I heard a loud applause and looked around until I found the table it was a wave of red and gold. I jumped out of the stool and ran to my table excited. This was a good start to what would be my new life.
