The office was cold. That was one of the first things I noticed the other was that it had a hollow air about it like someone had died. I felt Piper grasp my hand as Professor McGonagall began to speak.

"I know of your quest and I would just like to say that you have done a good job so far. I noticed the way Ron and Harry began to fall back into their old habits and that George doesn't seem to miss his brother as much as he did. I don't know how you did it but I would just like to thank you," She smiled in a broken sort of way her eyes filled with pride but her hands shook. Everything here was just so bittersweet. 

"It's quite Alright, we're just doing our job and anyway they'll heal themselves as well it just is going to take a while," Nico said sounding as old as he truly was.  She smiled the same smile and motioned for us o follow her. 

"Come on we have to lead the first years into the great hall where all of you should be sorted." We nodded following her as she leads us down the moving stairs and through the painting filled halls.

"Hello, first years. I am your Head Mistress but I would prefer if you called me Professor McGonagall." The young students seemed at a loss as what to say while they stared at us. She just cleared her throat and carried on once all eyes were back onto her.

"There is no rule breaking here, If there are, points will be deducted from your house." All students nodded along with Leo who was still fiddling with wires. She nodded and turned opening the doors,

"Let the sorting begin,"


We all watched as the first years were sorted. Piper didn't let go of my hand she was nervous, we all were.

"Prince Nico," Professor McGonagall called out. The short, dark-haired boy stepped forward sitting on the stool as the talking hat was placed on his head. Is it bad that this is not the weirdest thing I've seen? That had stayed silent for a minutes before calling out,

"Gryffindor!" The red and gold house clapped as Nico bowed before sitting down. This went on for five minutes. Will, Hazel and Frank are in Hufflepuff. Piper, Reyna and Thalia are in Slytherin. Annabeth, Calypso and Leo are in Ravenclaw and Nico, Percy and I are in Gryffindor. I felt a drop of dread run through me when a girl beside me whispered,

 "A Gryffindor and Slytherin dating? They won't last,"

Hey, guys Here is the houses! I hope you liked this chapter! also, Calypso and Leo are both smart in different ways to Annabeth but I think still should be in Ravenclaw, lots of thanks.
