"Rosieee!" screeched my obnoxious 14 year old brother, Hugo Weasley. "Time to get up, time to get up! IT'S TIME TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL!"
As he realized that I wasn't going to move anytime soon, he took a running leap and landed with a large thump, onto my bed.
"OWW!" I yelled out. "That HURT!"
"Oh, I'm sorry," Hugo said innocently. "Did I wake you from your dreams about how much you want to make out with Scoripus Malfoy?"
I took a swipe at him and yelled, "MUM! GET HUGO OUT OF MY ROOM BEFORE I MURDER HIM!"
My charming Mum screeched back, "HUGO! STOP ANNOYING YOUR SISTER. ROSE! STOP BEING LAZY AND GET UP ALREADY!"
"I can't wait until I'm 17." I mumbled, as Hugo scampered out the room, with a gleeful smile on his face.
In all this chaos that is my house, I haven't been able to properly introduce myself. I'm Rose Weasley and I'm currently 15, about to go into my fifth year at Hogwarts. You've already met my lovely younger brother Hugo Weasley. My mum is Hermione Granger; scary smart, horrible cook, extreme worry-wort and okay, pretty cool Mum when she's not under pressure. My dad is Ron Weasley; excellent cook, good at Quidditch and the best dad in the world. My parents also happen to be kind of famous. Well, okay, really famous. It's because of them and my Uncle Harry, that, well, the world still exists. They're the Golden Trio.
After laying in bed, thinking about how much I wish I was 17 so I could totally curse Hugo's hair to be clemently electric blue for the next week, especially after his crack about Scorpius Malfoy, I decided I really did need to get up.
As usual, it was an absolute madhouse trying to get everything out of the house and into the car. Since Hugo gets awful motion sickness when Apparating--though he's fine when it comes to Quidditch-- my dad drives us to the Hogwarts Express. I should actually be saying tries to drive us to the Hogwarts Express, as usually he and my Mum bicker the entire time about how he's doing it wrong, which he totally is. Thank Merlin, he's mastered the Confounds charm.
"So, do you have everything?" my mum said as we went through the barrier, worrying as usual.
"Hermione! If they don't have everything-" my dad tried to say. "
Ron! We do have to teach responsibility!" my mum said mildly. "
Oh, yeah. I suppose we do..." my dad trailed off winking at us.
"Mum! Look, Louis is here! Can I go say hey? Can I?! Can I?!" Hugo said excite.
I suppose now would be a good time to explain our family history. Louis is 14 (like Hugo) and they're best friends. His older sisters are Dominque and Victoire. Dom is in my year and is one of my best friends. Victoire is out of Hogwarts and engaged to Teddy Lupin. Their mum is my Aunt Fluer and their dad is my Uncle Bill.
Then we have my Uncle Percy and Aunt Audrey. They're both obsessed with rules. Its rather odd. Anyways they have two girls named Molly and Lucy. Molly is in her 7th year, is Head Girl and really annoying. Lucy is in her 5th year, like me and Dom. She's all right but was sorted into Hufflepuff, so none of us really see her, unless it's Quidditch, which she's a total monster at.
Next up we have Uncle George and Aunt Angie. They have two kids named Fred (in memory of Uncle Georges twin) and Roxanne. Fred is in his 7th year and best friends/part of the 7th year Marauders gang with my other cousin James. Roxy is one of MY best friends and is just all around awesome. Uncle George runs Weasley's Wizard Weezes or WWW. They're both hilarious especially when we have the annual Quidditch game. Or any kind of get-together really.
My Uncle Charlie isn't married yet and doesn't have kids but he does have a mini dragon! Whenever he can get away from work he brings Mathilda and all the kids go crazy over him. She's is so cute and though I've tried, for some reason my parents won't go for getting me a dragon. Whenever I've tried asking, my dad goes green, holds his hand and goes, "We're not having a Norbert situation," which always makes my Mum laugh, until my dad says, "50 points from Gryffindor Hermione," therefore making her blush, almost as red as me.
Now we have the famous Potters! Uncle Harry and Aunt Ginny who are my favorite aunt and uncle. They're really nice and when I was in 3 year, Aunt Ginny taught me and Lilly how to do her famous bat bogey hex because James and Fred turned my bed into a giant spider! I hate spiders and so does my dad. They terrify me! NOTHING SHOULD HAVE 8 FREAKEN HAIRY LEGS! ITS NOT NATURAL I TELL YOU!
Anyways, Lilly is also in Hugo's year but we're really close along with Rox and Dom. We've all kind of adopted her as the little sister, since none of us having any little sisters. Her brother, Al is my year and he's one of my best mates. Then we have James, who along with Fred, Shawn Finnegan, and Drake Thomas are our generations Marauders. Those guys are crazy. They literally drive everyone around them insane but it's hilarious to watch them turn into 5 year olds, when Ginny's around.
Now we have our family friends, who are so close to us, they might as well actually be our family. Luna and Rolf Scamader who have twins named Lorcan and Lysander. They're in their Hugo and Lilly's year. Though a little odd, they make a brilliant pair of Beaters and are actually very smart.
Neville Longbottom who's our Herbology teacher and Head of House, has a daughter named Callie whose in 3 year, a daughter named Bethie whos in 5th year and another daughter named Charity whose going to be a first year. Shes adorable! Anyways, he married Hannah Abbot and she owns the Leaky Cauldron and works there while Neville is at school. They're a really lovely couple.
Aside from Lucy whose in Hufflepuff and the Scamanders who are in Ravenclaw, we've all been put into Gryffindor, myself included. It might clash with our hair but our pride could literally put any other house to shame.
As I made nice with all my relatives, I searched for the ones that actually mattered. Roxy was always late and knowing Dom, she was probably already in the compartment, manically waving people away from it. She was a bit insane but that's why we loved her. As I looked for the one that most mattered, I suddenly felt someone patting my head.
"Al!" I said looking up at him. "You grew!"
He grinned at me and said, "Yeah. Did you shrink?"
I shook my head, grinned and said, "Come on! Let's go find Scorp. Bye Mum! Bye Dad! I love you guys so much! See you at Christmas!"
My Mum and Dad smiled and waved at me, kissing me goodbye. "Make sure you say hello to Scorp, Rox, and Dom for me, okay honey?" My Mum said, hugging me tightly.
"I will Mum," I promised. "I love you Daddy! I'm going to miss you so much." I pouted and then squealed as he bear hugged me.
"I love you too Rose," he said smiling. "Make sure you five don't get into too much trouble, look out for the Pranksters and watch out for your brother."
It was with those words that I parted from my family, for my 5th year at Hogwarts, side by side with one of my oldest friends in the world and it was with him, that I set off to find my other best friend, who I was completely in love with and who had zero idea.
Oh my god, Al!" I said. "We're doing it! We're going to HOGWARTS!!"
He grinned at me and said, "Yeah and we also have to find a compartment. I don't really fancy sitting with my BROTHER!"
I wrinkled my nose and said, "Oh yeah."
We found an empty compartment and put our stuff up. I got out my Hogwarts: A History Revised edition that my mum gave me for a going away present when we heard a knock at the door. Roxanne and Dom quickly joined us, though barely 10 minutes after they arrived, a knock sounded and there was a small blonde boy was there looking nervous.
My dad had pointed him out to me on the train and "jokingly" said to beat him in every test. My mum had snorted and said "Don't pay your father ANY attention Rose!" I had smiled nervously and when I saw him, I felt my heart skip a beat. God, he was gorgeous. And then, he was right there!
He smiled nervously and said quietly, "Do you mind if I sit with you? Everywhere else is kind of full, or they don't want to sit with a "Malfoy"."
I smiled at him and said, "Come on in. I, for one don't care if your a "Malfoy". Do you Al? Rox? Dom?"
Al looked up from his exploding snap game and demanded, "Do you play Quidditch? Or exploding snap?"
Scorpius looked kind of shocked and said, "Yes?"
"Awesome!" Then Al paused and said, "Oh yeah. That's Rose, I'm Al, Dom's the blond, Roxy's the one with the braids and you're Scorpuis."
Scorp suddenly snorted and said, "Um...no offense but way to point out the obvious."
I laughed and said, "Don't mind him Scrop, he does that all the time." I put away my book and we all spent the rest of the train ride laughing and joking and becoming friends. And just like that......I realized I was in love with Scorpius Malfoy.
