Slytherin Born

Chapter 1

“Hey, it’s going to be okay. Shh, don’t cry.” A blond girl wrapped her arm around the tiny boy, the green and silver tie around her neck catching in the light. “You’ll be fine. No one’s going to hurt you while I’m here.” She smiled and pushed her hair away from her face, her green eyes sparkling in the dim light. “What house are you in?”

“Gryffindor.” She nodded and stood, holding out her hand for him to grab. “Why are you being so nice? You’re in Slytherin, you’re supposed to hate Gryffindor’s.” The boy looked at her hand but took it tentatively.

“I have my moments of being nice, don’t worry, I don’t hurt first years.” She pulled him along, heading towards the Gryffindor common room. “Maybe we’ll run across your Prefect or Head Boy/Girl.” The boy nodded and sniffed. “Why were you out there anyway?”

“I was shoved into a classroom after dinner and got out, but I was wandering around since.” She nodded and wrapped an arm around his shoulders.

“Excuse me, what are you doing out after curfew?” The girl looked over her shoulder and frowned. “I asked you a question.” Her eyes traveled down to the Head Boy badge on his robes and saw the Gryffindor crest.

“I was taking your housemate to your common room. I found him roaming around near the Slytherin common room.” She looked up at his eyes and her green eyes darkened. “So, you’re Percy. Fred and George have told me about you.” The boy pressed himself closer to her side and she patted his head.

“Who are you?” Percy stepped forward, obviously not happy.

“Audrey, I’m in Slytherin and a Prefect. Now, Percy, you can either take this boy up to the common room on your own or I can come with you.” Percy looked at the boy and sighed.

“I’ll want to speak to you tomorrow.” She nodded, handing the boy over before walking back towards her own common rooms. When Audrey got back to the Slytherin common room a blond boy sitting on the couch, a suspicious look on his face, greeted her.

“What is it Draco?” The boy frowned, standing and walking towards her. “Don’t make me write to Aunt Narcissa that you’re being a creep again.”

“Where were you? Besides, I’m sure mother and Aunt Bellatrix would love to know that their favorite niece was friends with a couple of blood traitors.” Audrey glared and began to walk towards the stairs. “Where were you?”

“I was helping a first year get back to their common room. Someone shoved him into a classroom and locked him in.” Audrey shot over her shoulder towards her cousin.

“Oh, he got out. Should have known you’d help him Audrey. I still don’t understand how you were sorted into Slytherin.” Draco paused behind her as she turned around, her hand on the stair railing.

“You’ve seen full well why I was sorted into Slytherin and I don’t think you want me to show you why. Now be a good third year and go to bed. You have classes in the morning.” Audrey turned and went to her dorm; sometimes she just wanted to throw her cousin off the astronomy tower.

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin!

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care. [Rating: 4....
