Chapter 2: Any one I want to be.

Sally arrived at the Weasley's about 10 minutes later, via floo powder and was being shown to her room by Hermionie whom she was sharing with along with Ginny Weasley. They helped her unpack and then put their knew thinks in their trunks ready to leave in four days. Mrs Weasley called them for dinner after an hour and they skipped down the stairs completely starving. They sat at the table like a proper family and chatted about everyday things. Mrs Weasley was telling the twins off for some prank or another.

It was weird but although her family had always at together it had never felt like this. This was a real family who cared for each other, even Harry and Hermionie seemed to fit as part of the unit. When dinner was over they went to sit in the living room where there was a big fire and lots of big squishy armchairs. Mrs Weasley started to talk to Sally "so Sally tell us something about yourself" Mrs weasley insisted, "Well, ok erm,

I'm sixteen; I spent six years at The Beaubatons academy of Magic, I was expelled when one of my bad moods resulted in a first year getting knocked out, doesn't often happen by the way, play Quidditch, I dance, sing and write my own songs" "could you sing us one of your songs now?" asked Hermionie "yeah I suppose, hang on" with a flick of her wand her guitar was in her hands. Every body was surprised when she struck up a slow tune and started to sing, her voice was slow and soft.

"Suddenly"

Suddenly I, am in front of the lights
Everything, I'm feeling
Scary and beautiful at the same time
And every day I try just to breathe
I want to show the whole world
The truth inside of me

Suddenly people know my name
Suddenly everything has changed
Suddenly I feel so alive
In the blink of an eye

My dreams begin to rain


Suddenly time, feels like the wind
It changes everywhere I go
I'm just trying to fit in
Now here I stand
And I'm still just that girl
I'm following my heart
In this amazing crazy world

Suddenly people know my name
Suddenly everything has changed
Suddenly I feel so alive
In the blink of an eye
Suddenly I am centre stage
Suddenly I am not afraid
Suddenly I believe again
In a blink of an eye it's happening now

As my dreams begin to rain
I want to say to love me for me
What's inside
I'm gonna be positive, not run away, so much for you
This is my life

Suddenly I am centre stage
Suddenly I am not afraid
Suddenly I believe again
In the blink of an eye
My dreams begin to reign

As the song finished Sally looked up, The twins were waltzing with each other across the room, Mrs Weasley and Hermionie were crying, Ron was gaping, Mr weasley was clapping like mad and Harry looked as though he was staring into wonderment. "What inspired you to write it, it's beautiful?" hermionie asked, "thanks, the words represent everything I want in life, to break the mould, for people to not just say, oh she's a Malfoy, but say oh that's Sally, she's not like the rest of her family, I want to suddenly be able to let my dreams take over and forget about joining the family business".

After that they all went up to bed, still thinking about the song.

Four days later and Sally and Ginny woke with a start. "NOOOO, where's my badge? WHERE IS IT?" yelled Hermionie, "mionie' it's six thirty in the morning, go back to bed" Sally sighed "oh dear…" Ginny warned as Hermionie advanced on Sally's bed, "you've touched a nerve there sally" Hermionie got redder and redder, "Back…" "DON'T…" "…away…" "…EVER…" "…s-l-o-w-l-y…" "…TELL…" "…keep…" "…ME…" "…very…" "…TO…" "…quiet…" "…GO…" "…move…towards…" "…BACK…" "…the…door…" "…TO…" "…quietly…" "…BED" "…RUUUUUUUUUUUN" .

Then ran as fast as they could downstairs and sat at the breakfast table panting. The rest of the weasleys looked at them strangely, "hermionie" they panted "oh right" Every one burst into laughter. It was a standing joke that hermionie was not good in the morning, especially on September 1st. Hermionie came down half an hour later in a huff. She still didn't have her badge. "Is this what you were looking for mionie'?" said the twins, holding out a head girls badge which now read "big head girl". "YOU GITS" "PUT IT RIGHT NOW" she demanded, the wins did as she'd asked. Every one burst out laughing at the twins terrified faces. Sally laughed so much she had to grab onto Harry for support. But as they were standing up she lost her balance easily enough and they both ended up on the floor with Harry on top of her, blushing like mad whilst every one else turned and started to laugh at them instead.

Five hours later they arrived at Hogwarts. The train journey had surprisingly gone without incident. Draco was shocked to see his twin sister walk into the great hall with Harry, Ron, Hermionie, the Twins and Ginny. She sat with them until the sorting where she would be sorted into her house. One of the Professors stood up and picked up a scroll of paper. Sally was so nervous. All too soon the professor shouted "MALFOY, SALLY" the entire student body held their breath as the professor placed the hat on her head. "hmmmm" it muttered, "you're a tricky one" "yes your definitely a Malfoy, but your not a slytherin, no your so much more. So now I'll put you in GRYFIDOOR".
