When we finally reached, there was a professor there to greet us. Her attention was immediately drawn to the four students who had somehow managed to fall into the lake. She stormed over to them, pulled out her wand, swished it about, and poof, they were dry again. My eyes widened a bit, impressed.

"Cooool!" said Gem from beside me.

"Ikr," I whispered back. I looked around, still awed by the castle, and now the magic too. The professor introduced herself as professor McGonagall, she will be teaching us transfiguration. damn, that sounds cool. Soon enough, she led us into the hall, where there were four tables, that I knew belonged to the various houses thanks to Gemini. In the middle of the hall, there was a clear area with a stool and an old looking hat. I wonder what that's about.

Professor explained that the hat will be determining our house and that we have to sit on the stool when our name is called and wait for its decision. Cool.

Blah blah blah, let's get on with the sorting already. I already know all of this, mum and dad told me about it. They want me to get into Slytherin, so I guess that's where I'm aiming for? I don't really care much about it lol.

"And now, for the sorting hat's song!" Finally, I had been looking forward to this ever since I got to know it could sing, which was back when I was five.

"Oh, you may not think I'm pretty,

But don't judge on what you see,

I'll eat myself if you can find

A smarter hat than me.

You can keep your bowlers black,

Your top hats sleek and tall,

For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat

And I can cap them all.

There's nothing hidden in your head

The Sorting Hat can't see,

So try me on and I will tell you

Where you ought to be.

You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve and chivalry,

Set Gryffindors apart;

You might belong in Hufflepuff

Where they are just and loyal,

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,

And unafraid of toil;

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,

If you've a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind;

Or perhaps in Slytherin,

Where you'll meet your real friends,

Those cunning folk use any means,

To achieve their ends.

So put me on! Don't be afraid!

And don't get in a flap!

You're in safe hands (though I have none)

For a Thinking Cap."

I was humming along, cause damn it was catchy.

"And now, let the sorting commence!"

Hell, I'm so nervous. What if they put the hat on my head and it says that it was a mistake? That I wasn't supposed to be here? I mean, I can't do magic, everything that happened was probably just a freak incident. oh no, I'll be kicked out. Shit shit shit.

One by one, I watched the people go up, and get sorted into houses.

"Slytherin!" Do I want to go there? Nope, not really.

"Gryffindor!" That doesn't sound like my kind of place either.

"Ravenclaw!" I don't think I'm smart enough for it.

"Hufflepuff!" I'm not kind enough. Oh my gods, I don't belong anywhere. What will I do if I'm sent home? What will I tell mum? And brother?

"Pisces" Shit, they called my name. I slowly made my way towards the sorting hat, scared to death with all the eyes on me. I almost tripped halfway across, making me even more anxious. I quickly sat down the moment I reached, my legs shaking badly.

"Hmmm. I know just where to put you." I gulped, awaiting my fate.

Sorry, this chapter was so short, it was sort of a filler, ig. I'll try to make the chapters longer. The next one is going to be the character files and stuff, with the houses and everything.
