The Hogwarts Express reached its destination. Albus and Scorpius stepped out of the train and started looking for Rose. But it was difficult to find anyone in a crowd of numerous students all wearing school uniform.
‘’It’s all my fault. I shouldn’t have teased her. What if she is in some kind of danger?’’asked Scorpius nerviously.
‘’Relax Scorp. She can take care of herself. She might be with one of our cousins,’’said Albus reassuringly.
‘’First years this way,’’ Albus heard a familiar voice shout. It was Rubeus Hagrid. Albus and Scorpius followed Hagrid like the rest of the first years. They reached near the Black Lake.
‘’ First years will go in the boats. Hurry up. Can’t be late for the sorting and the Feast,’’Hagrid said.
Albus and Scorpius climbed on the boat along with two other first years. And after a few minutes they were standing near the gate. That’s when Albus and Scorpius spotted Rose. But before they could reach her,they were interrupted.
‘’Welcome to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Soon you will be joining the other students but first you will be sorted into the four houses. They are Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. During your stay at Hogwarts, your house will be your family. Good work will earn you points while points will be taken away for indiscipline. At the end of the year the house with the highest points will win the house cup. Now follow me,’’said Professor Neville Longbottom.
Albus , Scorpius and the other first years followed Neville to the Great Hall.
’’I will call your names one by one and place the Sorting Hat on your head and you will be sorted into your respective houses,’’said Neville and then he started calling the names.
The hat took a few seconds then it cried,’’HUFFLEPUFF’’.
Albus started to panic as he saw students getting sorted into their respective houses. What if he isn’t a Gryffindor? Surely his dad said that it doesn’t matter to him but he can’t bear to be in any other house,let alone Slytherin.
Albus saw the readheaded girl standing next to Rose coming forward. He saw Rose giving her a smile. Professor Longbottom placed the hat on her head. As soon as the hat touched her head it cried,’’GRYFFINDOR.’’ She breathed a sigh of relief and ran towards the Gryffindor table.
After a few more students,it was Scorpius’s turn. He walked nervously towards Neville. The Hat was placed on his head. The Hat took what felt like hours before yelling,’’GRYFFINDOR.’’
The whole Hall felt silent. People started whispering. A Malfoy in Gryffindor was never heard of before. Even Neville looked shocked. Scorpius started walking towards the Gryffindor table nervously. Then everyone started to clap. Albus and Rose were clapping the loudest.
And finally after a few more students, Albus’s most dreaded moment came. It was his turn. He took a deep breath and started walking towards Neville. The Hat was placed on his head. He looked at the Gryffindor table and saw his family members and Scorpius. He took another deep breath and closed his eyes.
‘‘interesting,very interesting! You have a sharp brain…..brave,loyal and a desire to make your own identity. But where to put you!very difficult…………….just like your father…………you will do great in Slytherin,’’the Hat was saying to Albus.
‘’Please not Slytherin. Anywhere but Slytherin….’’Albus was pleading to the Hat.
‘’Are you sure?..you will be great in Slytherin…’’The Hat asked.
‘’Yes I am sure,’’said Albus.
‘’Like father,like son…Ok then…… ‘’GRYFFINDOR’’the Hat yelled to the crowd. Everyone started clapping immediately and Albus let out the breath he was holding.
The process continued and atlast Professor Longbottom called,’’Weasley,Rose.’’
As the Hat touched Rose’s head it started shouting,’’another Weasley! You have a sharp brain but there is only one house that suits you completely. It’s GRYFFINDOR.’’
The Hat took a few minutes before yelling,’’SLYTHERIN.’’
And so the sorting ended.
