The New Girl
"King, Sara" Professor McGonagall called.
A fifteen year old auburn haired girl with emerald green eyes like a cat watched a very nervous eleven year old walk towards the magical Sorting Hat, that would sort her into one of the four Hogwarts Houses, Griffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
Who was this auburn haired girl you ask?
Her name is Lillian Rose Evans.
It was the first day of term at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry and Lily was standing with all the first years waiting to be sorted.
She was a new student from Abby's School of Witchcraft in Canada, but was originally from England.
She had been so upset when her parents told her they would be moving to England because her dad had been transferred with work.
She had been scared that she would have to return to public school because her parents and older sister were muggles (non-magic folk) and she didn't know if she would be accepted to a magical school because she was a fifth year.
But after a week in her new home she had gotten a letter of acceptance from Albus Dumbledore, the Headmaster of Hogwarts.
Lily had been so happy she had run around the house screaming like a maniac and then as soon as her energy ran out, she had owled her best friend Maddy to tell her the news.
But as September first grew closer and closer, the more nervous Lily became.
What happened if she didn't fit in?
What if she made no friends?
The questions went on and on.
But September the first came and she had sat in the train by herself and had gone on the boats across the lake with the first year.
Now she was standing with the first years at the front of the Great Hall waiting to be sorted.
A few minutes later, Lily noticed she was the only one standing up there and began to panic when everyone around the room began whispering and pointing at her; but they all quieted when the Headmaster stood up.
"Now before we begin our welcome back feast I would like to introduce a new student to you. Her name is Lily Evans and she is from Abby's school of Witchcraft in Canada. Please try to help her around and make her feel at home. Well Ms. Evans if you will step up to the Sorting Hat, so we shall see which house you are going to be in."
Lily nodded and stepped towards Professor Mc Gonagall, who was holding up the Sorting Hat.
She sat down and saw the hat sink down over her eyes.
Lily nearly jumped a foot in the air when the Hat began to talk to her.
Ahhh, very smart, yes, also very loyal and kind oh and also very brave.... I know which house is perfect for you..."GRIFFINDOR!"
Lily smiled and sighed in relief as she walked towards the table on the far left and sat next to a boy with messy black hair.
"Let the feast begin!" said the Headmaster and Lily gasped as she saw the food appear instantly infront of her.
"Wow." She said in awe.
The messy haired boy chuckled, "I'm guessing you've never seen that before?" he asked.
Lily saw that he had beautiful sapphire blue eyes.
Lily smiled at him and shook her head.
"No I haven't, at my school the house elves would bring the food to all the tables, Abby is quite small than Hogwarts considering it's an all girls school. I'm Lily Evans. What's your name?"
The boy was about to answer when a black haired boy next to him reached over him stuck out his hand to Lily.
"Sirius Black at your service."
Lily giggled and saw a boy with sandy brown hair across from Sirius, roll his eyes.
"Cut it out Sirius. Just ignore him Lily, he's just a big dope sometimes. I'm Remus Lupin that's James."
Lily smiled at them, "It's a pleasure to meet you." She said to him and they all began eating and talking, Lily slowly learning a bit about each of the boys.
They called themselves the Maurauders.
They had been friends since first year and were also friends with Peter Pettigrew, who was a shy pudgy boy who was very quiet.
Lily thought they were all so funny and loved how they were so easy going.
Soon the feast ended and they all walked up to the common room, Lily was amazed, the castle was huge and she had to be careful not to get left beind because she was looking this way and that trying to take it all in.
After going up a bunch of stairs and down some secret passages they reached a portrait of a fat lady in a pink dress.
"Password?" she asked.
"Tootle Pip." Sirius replied.
The fat lady nodded and moved aside to let them in.
Lily gasped at the size of the common room.
"Now," said Remus. "The boys rooms are up the stairs on your left and the girls the same on your right."
"Well I'm going to go and unpack but can I meet you guys down here tomorrow for breakfast, maybe point out some of the class rooms so I know where some of them are?" she asked hopefully.
"Sure Lily. Don't need you to be lost on your first day."
She thanked them and bid them goodnight.
When Lily entered the dormitory that said fifth years on the door she saw the other four girls were already there.
"Uhh hi, I'm Lily." She said shyly.
One out of the four looked up and smiled at her.
"Hi, I'm Emily Roberts. You're bed is next to the window." Emily said with a wink.
Lily smiled at her.
Lily glanced at the other three but saw them glaring at her.
But the one with blond hair and icy blue eyes looked like the leader of the group because the other two were standing slightly behind her.
Lily walked towards them, to introduce herself but the blond stopped her in her tracks.
"OK, first things first, don't talk to me, don't come near me and make sure you stay out of my way."
Lily rolled her eyes.
There will always be at least one.
"And why should I?" Lily asked icily.
"Because you filthy mudblood! I am daughter of the Minister for Magic and I don't need your low class self in my way. Oh and stay away from James, he's mine."
Lily rolled her eyes again, and walked to her bed and began to unpack her clothes and got into her P.J's, then set out her clothes for the next day.
She was slightly hurt that that girl would call her a low class person.
But she just let it go.
It wasn't a big deal; she didn't know what was the big deal with the bloodline thing some people made such a big deal over.
She just sighed and put it to the back of her head. As she drifted off to sleep glad to have already made four friends.
