“Hello young ones!” Shouted a plump looking monk ghost. “Welcome to Hogwarts.” Said a lovely woman ghost sweetly. “Hope to see you in Gryffindor.” A ghost said that looked like a knight.
“That must be Nearly Headless Nick” said George. “My brothers said he’s the Gryffindor ghost.”
Professor McGonagall came back and led them to a pair of double doors. They opened to reveal a large room with five tables lined up. One sitting at the front facing the rest of the tables. The teachers all sat there waiting for the first years to enter. Fred and George saw Hagrid and Hagrid gave them a quick wink. They also noticed the Headmaster of Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore. He was a good friend to their parents and visited the Burrow often. He gave them a smile and a nod.
The first years were led up to the front of the tables to a lone stool with a grungy looking hat. At first nothing happened, but then a slit cracked through and spoke. Many of the first years jumped. The hat introduced itself in a poem and explained what he does. After he finished, the whole room applauded and cheered.
“When I call you up, you will place the hat on your head and be sorted into your house.” Professor McGonagall said.
“Andrews, Krista” she called out first. A timid looking blonde hair girl stepped up to the bench and sat down. The hat was placed on head that covered her eyes.
“Hufflepuff” it yelled out. The third table exploded with applause and Krista jumped off the bench to join them.
A few other people were called. One of the girls that was in the boat next the twins and Lee was called up. “Bell, Katie.” She smiled nervously and went to have a seat. “Gryffindor” it yelled. The second table cheered and whooped as Katie made her way to the Gryffindor table.
A few people later and the girl who Lee thought had pretty eyes was called. “Johnson, Angelina.” She stepped up to the stool and “Gryffindor” once again was called out.
“Oh yeah, I definitely want to be a Gryffindor now.” Lee said.
“Jordan, Lee” was called next.
“Well, here’s your chance.” Fred put in.
Lee approached the bench keeping his fingers crossed. He mouthed “Gryffindor, Gryffindor, Gryffindor.”
“Gryffindor!” the hat yelled out.
“WHOOP!!” Lee jumped off the bench and ran to the table. He slid down the seat, almost crashing into Angelina.
“Watch it you twit!” She said pushing him away.
He looked over at the Weasley twins and mouthed “She loves me!” They laughed and shook their heads.
More and more students were sorted and finally the girl George and Fred were both mesmerized by was called. “Spinnet, Alicia.”
Both Fred and George mouthed her name over and over again. The pretty little brunette walked to the stool and took a seat. “Gryffindor!” The hat shouted
“YES!” Both Weasley shouted out. They stared at each other for a second.
“I saw her first.” George growled.
“Like hell you did Weasley.” Fred growled back.
They stared daggers at each other and finally Fred said “Did we just fight over a girl?”
George laughed and said “Yep, I think we did. Where did that come from?” But they both had their answer when Alicia walked by them, her scent following her. Both boys stared, dazed.
“Weasley, Fred” was finally called. Fred walked up to the bench and had a seat. The hat was placed on his head. He heard the hat whispering in his ear. “HA-HA!! Another Weasley enters Hogwarts. Where oh where shall I put this one?”
“You know its Gryffindor, now stop messin so I can sit next to Alicia.” Fred mumbled.
“Gryffindor!” The hat shouted. Fred jumped up and claimed his seat next to Alicia. He looked at his brother with a grin on his face.
“Weasley, George.” George moped to the bench, grabbed the hat and shoved it on his head. “Ahhhhhhhhhh, what luck, another Weasley, again!!! I feel a bit of jealousy from you. That has Slytherin written all over it.”
“What!!??!! Are you kidding, I’m not a stinkin Slytherin.” George mumbled.
“That you’re not true Gryffindor heart.” “Gryffindor!!” The hat shouted.
George jumped off and made his way to the table. He sat next to Lee and across from Fred and Alicia. Although the two of them were trying to get the girls’ attention, the girls had a different interest. A handsome looking third year named Oliver Wood. He was a Keeper on the Quidditch team. Bill and Charlie had spoken much about him, his popularity, his skills on the Quidditch field. It seemed that Oliver was holding court with the girls sitting around. Katie, Angelina and Alicia were all doe-eyed, listening to every word.
“What a git.” Lee whispered to George.
“Yeah.” Agreed George and looking at Fred. Fred just shook his head.
Professor Dumbledore stood up and gave his welcoming speech. Warning those not to venture into the Forbidden Forrest. George, Fred and Lee’s ears all perked up at the mention of this. All three said in unison, with a glint in their eyes. “The Forbidden Forrest?”
“Sounds……………forbidden.” George said gleefully.
The brothers looked down the table. Percy was staring at them shaking his head no. There must have been a reason why their brothers never mentioned the Forbidden Forrest to them.
After Dumbledore finished his speech, a delicious aroma of assorted foods wafted their noses. Hams, turkeys, pork chops, chicken, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, baked potatoes, corn, muffins and all sorts of sweets popped up on the table.
“Amazing!!” They yelled in glee. “I didn’t realize how hungry I was.” They dove into their plates, forgetting that pretty girls were sitting around them staring at them in disgust. They soon started to talk of quidditch and who their favorite teams were.
Their bellies full and eyes sleepy, Charlie led the first years up the winding stairs to the third floor. They stopped at a portrait of a fat lady. “Password?” She asked.
“Broomsticks” Charlie answered and the portrait swung open to reveal a round common room with a cozy fire going. Alicia, Angelina and Katie looked around with awe on their faces. They headed off to the corridor towards the girls’ dorms. The three boys staring after them. They soon followed suit and headed to their dorms.
“I saw her first “Mumbled George.
“No you didn’t.” His twin said behind him.
They arrived at their dorm room and five four poster beds were circled around the walls. Their trunks had been placed in front of each bed. George stretched “I’m tired. That bed is calling my name.” He ran to it, flying through the air and laid out comfortably on the blankets.
“I’m with you bro” And Fred flopped himself on the bed next to him. “What’s that?” He said looking up in the air.
“What’s what?” Said George,
“Up there” and before Fred could point it out, two buckets of water tipped over and drenched Fred and George.
“Aarrrghhh!!!” They both screamed sitting up, soaked to the bone.
Percy and Charlie walked by the door and backed up into the room. “What’s the matter boys? Frog in your throat?” They left the room laughing at the pay back, Charlie giving Percy a high five.
“That was bloody brilliant.” Said Fred
“Yeah, he’s made us proud.” George added.
Lee just stood transfixed on the show he just witnessed.
(a/n: I wanted to give Percy some meat and actually proved that he is a Weasley. Are you liking this?? Tell me tell me tell me!!)
