The rest of the train ride flew by in a blur. Rose and I continued to talk for the rest of the train ride. She had the most amazing smile, and I had to admit I liked being the one to make her smile. It seemed as if we both pushed aside who our families were and the history between them and were simply Rose and Scorpius. I had to admit, I liked the sound of that. Ugh why did she have to be so amazing? We seemed to have a lot in common. This day kept getting more and more interesting.
We took a break for a little bit so we could both use the restroom and change in to our school robes. The train began to slow and I began to pick up our pile of candy and Rose began to help me as we realized we were close to school. Our hands brushed and I felt a jolt of electricity. I noticed that Rose began to blush. We hurried up and shoved it in my trunk.
"We can save the rest and celebrate later if we both make Ravenclaw." I suggested sort of timidly. My heart began to beat faster as I realized she, again, was blushing and as I realized I could possibly be spending the next 7 years with her.
"Sounds good to me!" She said. Smiling that amazing smile of hers.
That had to have been the most amazing train ride of my life. Scorpius is so amazing. I sighed to myself. Ugh this is a Malfoy we're talking about. Maybe they're not as bad as I seem to think? The train finally came to a stop and we both grabbed our luggage. We walked to the exit and got off the train. Scorpius helped me get off my holding my hand and I could feel the heat rising in my face. God I'm a mess. I smiled and thanked him, he smiled back at me. We put our luggage in a pile with the rest and looked around.
"First Year's this way!!" someone yelled and we looked over to see none other than Rubeus Hagrid. I'd known him since I was young; After all, Harry potter is my uncle.
"Hagrid!!" I squealed and ran up to hug him, Scorpius trailing behind me sheepishly, "This is Scorpius."
"Nice t' meet you!" Hagrid boomed and nearly knocked Scorpius over as he shook his hand. Scorpius couldn't help but smile afterward.
We waited a few minutes until it seemed all the other first years had gathered around. Hagrid then began to lead us down a path. We came up to a lake and along the shore were dozens of small boats.
"Climb in!!" Hagrid Bellowed, "Four studen's per boat!"
Scorpius and I along with the rest of the first years scrambled for the boats. Scorpius and I sat down next to each other in a boat and were joined shortly after by a boy and girl. We all introduced ourselves. The girl's name was Zara and the boy's was Jace.
The boats began to move across the lake by themselves. Everyone was in awe at the sight of the giant castle looming closer and closer with every second. It truly was a beautiful sight.
"Almost as beautiful as you." Scorpius whispered in my ear, as if reading my thoughts. How does he do that? I was truly grateful for the fact that it was dark outside.
We glided across the lake for another 10 minutes or so before entering a cave that seemed to appear out of nowhere. The boats docked in he cave and we climbed the stair case into the castle.
We were met shortly afterward by the headmistress. She gave us a short speech explaining the houses and what the importance of them was while we were here. She then told us to follow her and we stepped inside the Great Hall. The sight was truly breathtaking.
There were 4 long tables that ran the length of the Hall each for a different house, and one shorted table at the front that ran the width for the staff. There were thousands of floating candles and huge windows lining the walls that were a dark blue ink color due to the darkness. The ceiling was gorgeous and looked as if it were see-through, which I knew wasn't the case, it was simply bewitched. In the front of the hall in between the house tables and the staff table was a single stool and on top of it stood the sorting hat. I grew nervous. This was really happening. Scorpius gave my hand a quick squeeze and then let go just as quick.
"You'll be fine." He said rather shakily. I could tell he too was worried.
The sorting hat sang his song but I couldn't focus on any of it. My nerves were running too high. Names were starting to be called and my heart began to beat faster and faster until it stopped altogether.
"Rose Weasley!!" Crap.
Rose began to walk over to the stool and I could tell she was beyond nervous. He headmistress placed the hat on her head and the hat immediately came alive
"Another Weasley??!" it said and most people in the hall laughed, "Hmm you have something special about you. You definitely developed your mother's brains that's for sure," it continued as Rose turned red again, "hmm I guess it'll be... Ravenclaw!!"
The wave of relief that hit Rose was clearly visible. She jumped up and looked over to me beaming and flashing me a thumbs up. Now it was my turn to be nervous.
"Scorpius Malfoy!" the headmistress called. Well, here goes nothing. I climbed up to the stool and felt the hat lightly placed on my head.
"Hmm you are a unique one." it said. It continued to talk but nerves got the best of me. I couldn't hear anything.
"Ravenclaw!" the hat shouted. Wait! What did it just say?! Ravenclaw!! I couldn't believe it!! I made the house I wanted!! Better yet, both Rose and I made Ravenclaw. Rose! I jumped of from the stool smiling like an idiot as I raced over to the Ravenclaw table as I took a seat next to the now beaming Rose.
Okay so I added in whose POV it was, even though I'm sure you're all smart enough to figure it out. I really hope you enjoyed the chapter, please leave a review and be brutal! I'm sort of really excited for the next chapter, should be a good one. :) I submit the next chapter each time the previous is validated, so shouldn't hbe too long. Thanks for reading!
