CHAPTER TWO: MISCHIEF MANAGED
Later on after Fred and George's hilarious prank me, Fred and George went to an empty compartment because the other one with all our friends in was too crowded. We went to the compartment I was in before Hermione found me and sat down, Fred and George were on the opposite side to me.
"So, who should we prank next George?" Fred asked stroking his prank suitcase which had 'Weasley and Weasley' in gold fancy font, the case was slightly battered from where it was carried around all the time.
"I don't know...we haven't pranked Snape for a while," George suggested, raising his eyebrow then looking at me mischievously as if to say 'you want to help prank your dad?' I didn't know what to do though, Fred and George were my best friends but Snape was my dad...
"George?" I asked frowning but also smiling.
"Yes?" He said trying to look innocent.
"What are you going to do to my dad?"
"Well, you'll see soon amateur prankster, Lucy!" Fred laughed.
"Hey!" I said pretending to be annoyed.
The train ride lasted for a bit longer, I went to an empty compartment and got changed into my Hogwarts robes. I only slipped on the white long sleeved shirt, a just above the knees skirt, knee high socks, my Gryffindor tie and a pair of ankle boots.
I went back into the compartment where Fred and George were and sat down, they too were in their Hogwarts uniform but it looked a little small now, both the arms on their school jumpers were too short and their shirts were untucked they both looked so messy!
"Someone made an effort!" I said pointing at their clothes, they looked at each other smirked
"Yes we did! It's called last year at Hogwarts and we don't care!" Fred said giving his brother a high five
"Fair enough! It sucks though this will be the last time we see both of you every day! And our prankster friends will be gone! Nobody will ever replace you two!" I said
"Nope because me and Fred are the best pranksters Hogwarts have ever seen! But we do still thank Messers Moony, Padfoot, Wormtail and Prongs! We could not of done it without their map!"
"Are you talking about the marauders map? Because doesn't Harry have it now?" I asked a bit confused
"Yes he does! We gave it to him, we felt that his needs were greater than ours" Fred said
"That's so sweet of you guys!" I said in a tone of awe
Suddenly the train pulled up at the station and everyone hopped off of the train. Me, Fred and George got in one of the carriages and it set off to the castle, before I could realise it we were in the great hall again, we sat down at the Gryffindor table and waited for the first years to come through and be sorted.
McGonagall walked through the great hall doors with a scroll in her hands and a bunch of scared first years behind her, they looked around at all the tables. When they made it to the front McGonagall called out their names and the sorting hat sorted them into their houses.
After a while the sorting ceremony was over and McGonagall removed the stool and the old patched and frayed hat. This would be Fred and George's last sorting ceremony, eventually Dumbledore got out of his seat and began his usual speech.
"Hello everyone! Hope we all enjoyed our holidays! Now we have a few staff changes, Dolores Umbridge will be our new defence against the dark arts teacher - " Dumbledore was about to continue but Umbridge did a very annoying squeak and Dumbledore's voice trailed off, he stepped out the way politely and Umbridge made it to the front.
As soon as she began to speak I thought I might slip in to a coma. I glanced over to where dad was and he didn't seem to pleased either, he was scowling at Umbridge, hatred filled his black eyes. I couldn't blame him, even though he wanted the dark arts job I could see he wanted it even more now because this Umbridge person was getting on his nerves as well as everybody else's.
After a while Umbrige's speech finished only a few people clapped, and clapped weakly, Dumbledore filled us all in on a bit more information then left for his seat and the feast began, I was glad to because I was starving!
Ron already had a full plate of food and was shoving his face full of it. I laughed at him as he tried to shove a sausage hole into his mouth.
"Ron! That's disgusting!" I squeaked covering my eyes
