Ella Hope

Not that long after the train had started moving, a boy opened the door, he was one of the boys that had been standing by that nice lady who had helped us.

“Excuse me, do you mind? Everywhere else is full” he said.

“No, not at all,” Harry said.

“I’m Ron, by the way, Ron Weasley,” he said.

“I’m Harry Potter and this is Ella Hope” Harry replied and pointed to me and I waved at Ron. Harry and Ron talked until a trolley came by the compartment, full of sweets. The women asked if we wanted any sweets, and before I could respond, Harry bought three of everything. After I ate a few things, I went to change into my robe.

When I came back Ron was holding up an extremely fat brown rat, who was missing one toe, “This is Scabbers, by the way, pitiful, isn’t he” said Ron, “But Fred taught me a spell to turn him yellow, want to see?”

He started to say the spell but got interrupted when a girl with wild hair opened the door.

“Has anyone seen a toad? A boy named Neville’s lost one” the girl said.

“No sorry but I can help you look soon,” I said.

“Ok that would be brilliant,” the girl said.

“I’m Hermione by the way,” she said.

“Ella” I replied “and this is Harry and Ron.” She was about to leave when she saw that Ron had his wand out.

“Oh, are you doing magic? Let’s see then” said Hermione sitting down next to me.

“Ok,” said Ron and cleared his throat, “Aghhhemm. Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow, turn this stupid fat rat yellow.”

Nothing happened and Harry and I started laughing.

“Are you sure that’s a real spell? Well, it’s not very good, is it? Of course, I’ve only tried a few simple spells myself, and they’ve all worked for me” Hermione said then turned to face Harry while pulling out her wand.

“Oculus Reparo” Hermione said while waving her wand and Harry’s glasses, (which were broken) instantly fixed themselves.

“That’s better, isn’t it,” Hermione said and then laughed at Harry and I’s amazed faces.

“You two better change into your robes, as Ella did,” said Hermione and then disappeared out of the door.
