"Greg! Come here to look at what Hermione is doing!" My mum yelled when I first did wandless magic. I'm now 11 years old on my way to Hogwarts, hugging my mum and dad, getting on the train with Crookshanks waving goodbye with a smile and a knot in my stomach from the nervousness. As soon the train left the station I settled down and decided to go and change into my robes.

Walking down the hall of compartments, a rather chubby boy with a bowl haircut bumped into me from not seeing where he was going, looking as if he was searching for something or someone. "oouf!"stumbling to keep my balance.

"Oh I'm so sorry!" Said the boy helping me to stay up. "I was looking for my toad Trevor, I've lost him, I'm Neville by the way."

"Nice to meet you Neville, I'm Hermione, I would be happy to help you look if you want" I said politely while smiling.

"Brilliant! Thank you I would love the help" He said, then started going off to look in other compartments as I walk to the train's bathroom and change quickly. I start looking in compartments of the train, he had not looked in, I see a compartment door open with two ginger hair boys who appeared to be twins. "Excuse me, but have you two seen a toad around here? A boy named Neville has lost one."I look and notice the two ginger boys were occupied with an invention of theirs, I tilt my head looking. "What is that?"

One of the ginger boys looked up at me. "It's a popper" the other boy looked up. "It's suppose to pop" "and change a person's skin green." "When thrown on the ground near a victim." They both grin after finishing each other's sentences. I roll my eyes. "That's just rude."

They both grinned wider "We know." they said in unison. I decided to sit down across from them in their compartment. "I'm Hermione Granger, and you are?"

George looked at me and proudly announced "I'm George Weasley" I nod and turn to look at the other twin as he was grinning at me. "I'm the amazing Fred." I fight the urge to roll my eyes. "Pleasure... Anyways, must be off, you two better start getting changed into your robes; We'll be getting off soon." "Also.." I say, pausing to slide to the edge of my seat. "I suggest not using that popper, wouldn't want to get expelled on your first day, would you?" The boys grinned. "That's good advice for the first years, we'll be just fine." With that I get up and walk away, heading back out to help Neville; Left thinking they must not be new, feeling a little embarrassed also wondering what else they have done.


An Hour Later

Heading into Hogwarts, stopping inside on the stairs to the Great Hall in front of Professor Mcgonagall. "Welcome to Hogwarts" said Professor Mcgonagall. "The start-of-term banquet will begin shortly, but before you take your seat in the Great Hall, you will be sorted into your houses. The sorting is a very important ceremony because, while you are here your house will be something like your family within Hogwarts. The 4 houses are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin, it will take place in a few minutes."

As she walked away, I couldn't help but look over at the twins, Fred specifically at least; I think it's him...secretly vowing to learn the difference between the two, suddenly a ginger hair boy tapped my shoulder I turned to look at him.

"Oh hello...I'm Hermione Granger" I noticed he looked a lot like the twins as he smiled. "I'm Ron, Ron Weasley." Of course, another Weasley, I smile back. "Nice meeting you." I look over to the boy with raven hair next to him and instantly knew who he was. "Holy Cricket! You're Harry Potter!" Harry smiled shyly nodding at me. "Yeah that's me." Just a little while after, Professor Mcgonagall returned while I talked with Harry and Ron, the hall gets quiet as she talks.

"Move along now, The Sorting Ceremony's about to start." We all walked into the great hall looking up at the ceiling I turn to look over at Harry and Ron. "You know the ceiling is charmed to look like the night sky." From the distance behind me, I hear the twins talking. "Bright one isn't she, George." "I do believe you're right, Fred." "Looks like we've found our homework helper." At hearing that I rolled my eyes.

We stopped at the end of the hall waiting to be called, Professor Mcgonagall looked through a list as I see the twins, taking their seats at the table with the flags that were red and had a lion on it. They must be a year or two older than me. My thoughts were interrupted when I was tapped on my shoulder as Mcgonagall called again. "Hermione Jean Granger." I shake my head clear and start walking up to take a seat waiting to be sorted...a minute later hat yells out to the whole hall, the sound vibrating through the room. "GRYFFINDOR!" I relax and smile heading off to the table. I feel a strange turning in my stomach as Fred, who I decided had the more cocky but strangely intriguing personality; cheered for me and smiled along with the rest of the Gryffindor house table.
