The morning came fast and I was up, washed and ready for school in next to no time at all. Leaving the other girls to finish getting ready, I didn't realise anyone could take longer then Victorie in getting ready but judging on how long Lila had spent in the bathroom she could probably give her a run for her money, I made my down into the common room and sat on one of the armchairs. It was only a matter of minutes before I was joined by one of my cousins, James.
“Hey Rosie, you excited?” He asked as he came and sat on the arm of the chair I was in and ruffled my hair but instead of answering I just scowled at him and tried to push him off, it didn't work though. He knew I hated being called Rosie and having my hair ruffled, he just likes to wind me up. Fortunately, his friends appeared at the moment so with one last ruffle of my hair, he departed the common room. The other girls in my dormitory made an appearance shortly so leaving the common room we made our way down to the great hall for breakfast, or rather we tried too. Between the moving staircases and the trick doors it was a wonder we made it at all but we managed to get there, even if it was 45 minutes later. As we walked in the owl post had just arrived which reminded me I needed to send my letter home, I'd do it tonight if I could find the way. Sliding onto the bench next to Evangelina I picked up a piece of toast and started nibbling on the edges, I wasn't that hungry any more. The 1st year boys came and sat down opposite us and I smiled at Al, at least he looked happy.
“Hey there,” Lila spoke up, a big grin on her face. “What are your names?”
“Hello, I'm Clinton. It's nice to meet you.” spoke up one of the boys. He had dusty blonde hair that was neatly trimmed and the way he sat reminded me of Uncle Percy.
“I'm Jacob,” announced the boy next to Clinton with a mock salute and a wink at Lila who burst out into giggles and blushed a small shade of red.
“Albus,” my cousin told them before turning back to his breakfast. I smiled encouragingly at him, I knew he was nervous because of James but he didn't need to worry.
“Kyle,” a brown haired boy smiled before opening a letter that was in front of him and starting to read.
“Phoenix, what about you guys? Do you have names?” He asked and I stopped listing as they all introduced themselves to the boys. Turning my head I turned to face the Ravenclaw table looking for Scorpious, would I have any lessons with the Ravenclaws? I hoped so although I wouldn't have minded not seeing that horrid girl again, Jessie. I couldn't spot him so I turned back and tried to remind myself that I didn't even know the girl, she could be really nice although I sincerely doubt it. Just at that moment I felt a nudge in my side and looked up to find the rest of the first years watching me, well most of them seeing as Al wasn't. Guess I was supposed to introduce myself.
“I'm Rose,” I nodded, managing a small smile before feeling my face heat up to a small shade of red, I prayed it wouldn't start to clash with my hair. Thankfully Professor Eleanora, who was also head of Gryffindor house walked over to us.
“Hello First years, I have your time tables here and if you have any questions you can ask them now,” she told us, smiling before handing out the timetables. When she passed over mine I quickly scanned the card and saw we had Charms and Herbology with the Ravenclaws. First lesson was DADA so picking up our bags all the Gryffindor first years headed of to DADA, or tried too seeing as we got lost.
A/N: Hey, so I know these last two chapters have been mainly filler chapters but the next one will be more action filled/ interesting, I promise. Hope you're enjoying it though! :)
