I awoke to bright lights and the weight of someone's hand tapping my shoulder.
"We're here." I looked up at the person's face. Her face was crowded with a bunch of frizzy brown hair and underneath that mess were blue eyes.
As I studied her appearance, her mouth dropped open and she muttered, "Wow." For a minute I didn't understand why she was shocked, then I got it. My eyes.
"My name's Violet, yours?" I stood up and made my way to the door.
"Lucy Brake." She shook my head and walked down the steps. I followed her.
"So what house you think you're gonna be in?" I asked as I reached the floor.
"I don't know, Slytherin maybe." I smiled. We would be best friends soon. "What about you?"
"First years over here!" A voice yelled.
Lucy leaned in and whispered in my ear. "We better get over there. We are first years." We found the voice pretty quickly. Who wouldn't miss a hairy half-giant.
"Hello, everyone. I'm Hagrid, the gamekeeper of Hogwarts." He motioned toward the left, where a castle loomed.
We followed him to the boats. "-that's why you folks don't take the carriages like the other students." Hagrid climbed into his own and the boat tooke off toward Hogwarts.
