Chapter Four - The Sorting

The Potter's had bought quite a lot of food for themselves and for Isis. She'd barely had time to reach into her pocket to get her money before they'd dumped Chocolate Frogs, Bertie's Flavored Beans, and much more onto their seats. Isis was starting to like the Potter's, especially James Sirius who was quite outgoing. She felt much more comfortable around them. But now, she had no idea where to go, as she got out the train.

"Firs' years ove' here!" A loud voice boomed over all the students coming out. Isis turned arount to see a giant in front of her, peering over the crowd. And suddenly, he moved towards them. Isis gulped, did he know she was the odd one out?

"James, Albus!" He called.

"Hagrid! How are you?"

"Fine with you two back 'ere. And who is this?" Hagrid asked, beaming at Isis and Lily.

"That's our little sister Lily Luna. She's joining first year here!"

Lily smiled at Hagrid and shook his hand. "Hello."

"And this is Isis. She's joining in third year," Albus said, tilting his head toward her.

"Proffessor McGonagall has told me about yer, Isis. Yer going be coming with me now."

Isis nodded, a bit hesitant as she followed Hagrid along with a group of first years

Hogwarts was incredible. Isis never expected anything this...magical to exist. This is awesome..she thought as she entered the Great Hall with all the other first years. She avoided the curious eyes of the other students who scrutinized her as she walked through the line. She was the tallest among the first years and that naturally intrigued others.

Isis's eyes found a rugged old looking hat that was placed on top of a stool. She stared at it, wondering what it's purpose was. In front of the stool appeared a witch with a stern look on her face. She must be the headmaster, Isis thought.

"Welcome to Hogwarts. Before the start-of-term banquet, you will be sorted into your houses. The four houses are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin."

"Reckon I'm going to be put into Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff," Lily whispered to Isis.

"How come?"

"Albus is in Slytherin and James in Gryffindor, I'm going to be in a different one I bet."

"Potter, Lily," the headmaster called.

"Here goes."

Lily ascended up the to the stool and sat down, looking absolutely comfortable. The hat was put on her head for around a few minutes before finally shouting "RAVENCLAW!"

Isis clapped for her new friend who gave her a I told you so look as she went to sit with the Ravenclaws. Isis waited patiently for her name to be called out as the rest of the first years got Sorted.

"Isis."

With a small sigh, Isis headed up to the stool. Of course, I don't have a last name because I don't have a family.

She sat down, and fiddled with her fingers nervously as the old hat was placed on her head.

Interesting....what have we got here?, she heard a small whisper inside her head. Lots of courage and bravery, and a thirst for adventure. Which house shall I put you in, Isis?

"It's up to you," she responded back in her head.

Very well...might as well be "SLYTHERIN!"

The End
