Something Different

By Shmurr

Fantasy / Romance

Chapter 1

"We are our choices." -Jean-Paul Sarte

Melyssa was with both her parents on the King's Cross Station Platform 9 3/4. The place was full with parents, kids and teenagers. Jonathon and Elizabeth Rodhenstein were looking around for some known faces. After all, they left for America 16 years ago, and they knew that most of their classmates had also children that were around their daughter's age.

"John, Eliza, it's been so long since I saw you." a slim,nice looking, and very pale, with blue eyes, long blond hair woman approached them, together with a blond man and a quite good looking teenager boy.

"Narcissa, Lucius, nice to see you here. This is our daughter, Melyssa, 15 years old, she is going in her forth year."her father, Jonathan spoke, while shaking hands with Lucius, the women hugged each other. Melyssa was looking between the two couples to the boy and back, while she was staying behind.

"Our son, Draco, also a forth year, a Slytherin." Melyssa, who decided that it was not something very important, let the adults talk while she was looking after interesting people.

"Interesting color." the teenager,named Draco took her hand and kissed it, like a gentleman.

"So, should I understand that you are a muggle-lover?" Melyssa looked at her clothes. Ripped jeans, a Led Zeppelin crop-top, a black oversize hoodie, black converse, and her backpack, with badges with bands and others things she liked.

"So, should I understand that you are a prick of a pure-blood that thinks that muggles have stolen our magic?" she asked back. Melyssa opened her mouth to say something else but her mother spoke, laud enough to be heard by her daughter.

"Melyssa, we are leaving, we expect letters, in which I kindly ask to tell us in which house you are sorted, also be sure to behave." Melyssa smirked at her mother, while rising her hands.

"I always behave. Bye, mom, dad."she kissed both her parents on the cheeks, before running to the train.

"LSD, I'm serious." her mother shouted, but it was to late, the girl was already in the train.

"This girl will be the death of me. I just don't get how someone so lazy as her can get in so many troubles." Elizabeth sigh, as she looked at her husband.

"Don't worry, dear, I am sure that Draco, will look after her."said Lucius.

"That would be wonderful. We should be going now."

As soon as his parents left the platform, Draco went to search for his friends, who already found an compartment. The girl couldn't get in troubles on the way, or so he thought.

On her way of searching a place to sit, she bumped in someone, falling on the floor.A tall and extremely handsome young man with chiseled features, dark hair, and bright gray eyes was in front of her, holding his hand for her to grab.

"I'm so sorry, I wasn't paying attention." she started to say as he helped her back on her feet.

"Nor did I, so I'm also sorry. Are you new to Hogwarts? I'm sure that I would have seen you around the school. I'm Cedric Diggory."

"Melyssa Rodhenstein, also known as Lsd. Yes, I'm new. I moved from LA here, I'm going to join as a forth year."

"Do you have a seat? If you don't you can come and sit with me and my friends." thanking, Melyssa followed the boy.

The road to Hogwarts wasn't a boring one, the Hufflepuffs were indeed loyal and friendly, she listened their stories about the other houses, about Harry Potter, Dumbledore, Snape, even Malfoy, who was indeed a prick. It was already dark when they arrived at the castle.

"Oh, you must be Melyssa Rodhenstein, I'm Professor Minerva McGonagall, as you probably know, we have a ceremony called the Sorting, so please, as I help the first years, go to the Headmaster's office. Mr Diggory, please take her there. Oh, Mr Malfoy, please go with them."the old woman added as she turned her head. Draco was with a group of Slytheirns, making their way in the school.

"Miss Rodhenstein, they will help you in finding your way around the school."

"So, let me see if I get this. The 'Sorting' is that moment when everyone looks at you, while an old hat is put on your head, hat that enters in your mind, and puts you in to a house." Melyssa asked while looking at the door.

"That's how it works, Melyssa. I'm Dumbledore Albus, the Headmaster, please take a seat." the 3 teenagers entered in the office. Melyssa sat on a chiar, as Dumbledor came with the Hat and placed it on her head.

" A Rodhenstein, Ravenclaw and Slytherin are in your blood, but Hufflepuff and Gryffindor are strong with this one. A hard choice."

Five minutes later Melyssa and the Hat were still talking.

"Albus, we have a problem. I can't sort this girl."

"What? Are you sure? This has been unheard of before." Dumbledor looked at the hat and then at the girl.

"She doesn't care about the house."

"Very well then. Melyssa, from tomorrow you are going to stay one month in every house. After the 4 months you'll be sorted again. I'll speak with the Heads of the Houses. You'll start with the Gryffindor."
