The Feast and The Start of New Classes
Ron and Hermione went over to the Gryffindor table to catch up with their friends as they had been held up by a prefect’s duties lecture. The moment they settled down, Professor McGonagall entered, holding a scroll parchment with all the first year’s names and the old and frayed sorting hat placing the hat on the stool. The first years were trailing behind her with fearful and nervous faces.
The sorting went by with Hermione noticing, she was too deep in her thoughts. It was when Ginny waved her hands a millimetre away from her nose did she realise that the feast had started. She took as much food as she could eat whilst reminiscing her summer with her Gryffindor roommates, Lavender Brown and Parvati Patil. When they started talking about makeup, Hermione turned to her best friends. Unfortunately, they were talking about Quidditch, so she tried to concentrate on eating her food but finished quickly and was soon drowned into her own thoughts.
When all the plates in the Great Hall were cleared, Professor Dumbledore stood up and silence immediately swept over the hall.
“Welcome, first years! And welcome back, to all of your older students! I have a few announcements to make; all first years, please note that the Forbidden Forest is forbidden. The rest of you should know, turning to look pointedly at the ‘Trio’. All Weasley Wheezes Products are band as requested by Mr. Filch, check for other items from a list on the Caretakers office door please. Also, this year we have decided to give an opportunity to all sixth years to try out new subjects. You will know what they are tomorrow. Now chop, chop as muggles say and get back to your dorms!”

The next morning, Hermione woke up early and went down to the Great Hall with a book. On her way down whilst reading at the same time, she crashed into a tall person.
"Oh! I'm so sor...." Hermione looked up to see Draco Malfoy glaring down at her with a sneer on his face.
"Watch where you're going mudblood." Draco said with a ridiculously pompous voice.
“You’re the one to talk, insufferable, stuck up, self-centered ferret!” Hermione turned on her heel and was about to storm away quickly when Draco grabbed her arm. He dragged her into a hidden alcove and pinned her against the wall.
“Don’t you dare talk to me like that stubborn know-it-all Gryffindork.” Draco remarked. He had begun to admire Hermione ever since she punched him in third year, but he didn’t want to appear weak.
“Then what about you? You’re a slimy Slytherin git you know that?” Hermione shot back then turned around once more and quickly ran away before Draco could react.

Hermione was about to leave the Great Hall when Professor McGonagall gave her, her schedule. She glanced down at it and saw that she had the new classes first today. There were a few of the new classes to choose from. They were a charms creation class, potions creation class and legillimency.
Hermione chose the charms creations class and hurried towards the charms classroom. There, she saw Harry and Ron sitting at a three-seater table. She walked over and sat down at the remaining seat.
"Hi Hermione! Who do you think will be the professor?" asked Ron.
"I bet its Flitwick."
"Yeah! Me too..." Harry trailed off as Dumbledore entered and the whole class went silent. Professor Dumbledore began to speak as the students turned their attention
“Welcome everyone! You may not have expected me to be your teacher. But here I am! So let’s get down to work now.'
It was a boring lesson compared to the lesson they would have for the rest of the year. Before class ended. Dumbledore told them to investigate further on how spells were created and write a foot essay on it.
After class, Hermione sat at the library alone. Harry and Ron were at Quidditch practice and since she wasn't a big fan of Quidditch, she politely declined their offer. She decided to get a head start on the essay. Hermione quietly went over to a corner, sat down and took out her books, parchments and inks.
A/N Very sorry about the short chapters, I promise that once we get to the middle parts of the stories, I will make those chapters longer! Sorry! Please review! It'll give me more encouragement to keep me going!
