"Hey. I'm Scorpius."
The lanky teenager had walked over to the Ravenclaw table gleefully.
“You’re in Ravenclaw!”
“Thank the Lord! I was afraid I was going to be in Slytherin! My mum and dad and practically my entire family were in Slytherin!”
“My entire family has been in Gryffindor! I just hope my dad won’t be angry.”
“How could he be? You got your brains from your mum!”
“I get that a lot...”
She ran her fingers threw her hair and sighed. Scorpius admired her beauty. She had long, bushy red hair, and sea green eyes that danced in the candle light.
“First years come with me! All first year Ravenclaws please follow the prefect, that’s me!”
The Ravenclaws climbed the stairs to the highest tower.
“Good Afternoon Bright Minds! Welcome to the Ravenclaw house! Here we pride ourselves on knowledge and learning! In fact, in order to reach our common room you must answer the question the enchanted knocker asks you. It’s a great way to learn new things and meet fellow Ravenclaws. Our Moto is “1Wit Beyond Measure is Man’s Greatest Treasure!” Isn’t that nice! Now, go explore and have fun. Curfue is 10:00 for Ravenclaws. We feel you all need a good rest for your minds, in order to be able to expand your knollwege once again! Any questions, report to me….Any Questions?
Rose and Scorpius looked at each other and smiled.
“Good! Now my name is Prefect George McLooney. We have stunning views from up here. Treasure it, and be thankful you are a Ravenclaw! Now, go and explore!”
“Hello! My name is Head Boy Robert N. Truscen. Can I help you with anything?”
“No I think we got it… thanks….”
“Not a problem! Have a pleasant evening!”
“Goodnight Mystery boy.”
“Please Rose, call me Scorpius.”
“Alright, Scorp. Goodnight.”
He sighed, and watched as she ran up the stairs to her dormitory.
Lying in bed that night, Scorpius caught himself smiling. And he couldn’t stop.
Scorpius waited in the common room for Rose the next morning.
“Good morning Rossie.”
“Scorp, stop that. You sound like my father.”
“Is that a bad thing?”
“No, I’m just a little homesick is all.”
“It’s not so bad once you get used to it, come on Rossie.”
They began their walk to the great hall.
“Have you owled your dad about your house yet?”
“No. Have you?”
“Yes. He owled me back this morning saying he was very proud.”
“That’s great Scorp!” Rose smiled. Maybe being in Ravenclaw wouldn’t be so bad.
Being first years, they got their first day at Hogwarts off of classes to explore and get into the routine. Rose and Scorpius decided to take a tour of the school so that they would be able to find their classes the next day.
“The school is beautiful.”
“Yeah.” Rose replied. The pair was examining the unique architecture and fascinating moving portraits.
“Wanna check out the library?!”
“I have been waiting all day!
They strode over to the library. Both excited and fascinated due to their common love of knowledge.
