Hi! Sorry, but I just had to do a couple of adjustments! Thanks, mimosa for pointing out my mistake! I haven't read the ending of deathly hallows for a while, so I forgot most of the stuff that happened at the end. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this fic! Please review!
"I'll write to you everyday," promised Hermione to her daughter. Bending down, she whispered in her ear. "Mind you, make sure you do beat Scorpious in every test. He looks as much of a bastard as his father." Rose giggled loudly and Ron raised an eyebrow. "What are you telling my daughter, Hermione?" Hermione scowled.
"She's not only your daughter, Ronald!"
"Yeah, well, she loves me more, don't you honey?" he asked, grinning at her. He bent down and kissed her on the forehead. Then he stood up and looked around.
"Honestly, where has that boy got to?"
"Dad!" came a shout and the three Weasleys' turned around to see Hugo, Roses's younger brother running towards them, right on cue.
"There you are," said Hermione, looking relieved. Hugo cast them both an apologetic look.
"Now, mind you behave yourself," said Hermione sternly to Rose.
"Take care, Hugo," said Rose, hugging her little brother . Hugo laughed and hugged her back.
The gleaming red and black train gave a long, loud whistle.
"Off you go, then!" said Hermione, quickly grabbed Rose and pulled her into a tight embrace. "Take care." Ron did the same. Rose caught sight of Albus inside the train and ran in after him.
"Bye!" called out Rose, sticking her head out of the window. Her parents' beameed at her one last time.
"Should we go look for an apartment?" asked Albus eagerly. Rose nodded. They passed through some compartments. They spotted James in one, before they realised it was full with students, casting admiring looks at him. Sometimes, they hated he was so popular. He waved at them and they waved back.
"And he's supposed to take care of me," grumbled Albus, walking on. They finally found a compartment. It was quite empty, apart from a boy with white- blonde hair, a pointed chin and stormy gray eyes'.
"Scorpious," said Albus. Looking around, he sighed and then turned back to face Rose. "Should we? All the other compartments are full."
"It's not like he has some sort of contaigous disease," said Rose. She pulled open the compartment door. The boy immediately turned around to face them. Rose noticed he had very long lashes, which managed to accentuate the colour of his eyes' even more deeply.
"Hi!" she said brightly. He just looked at her. Shooting a pleading look at Albus, she took a seat opposite him.
"I'm Rose," she said, holding out her hand. He looked down at her hand and sneered.
"I know who you are."
"Oh," said Rose, blushing slightly. She retreated hastily. She saw a flicker of anger surpass Albus's green eyes'.
"You're Scorpious, aren't you?" asked Albus.
"You already know it, why are you asking?" Rose had never met anyone so rude.
"Just to make sure," shrugged Albus. Hesitating, he moved to sit next to Rose. Rose looked out of the compartment door. The train moved smoothly along the railway. They passed gorgeous, lush green grass and endless trees. Rose took in the scene. She had always appreciated the beauty of nature for as long as she could remember.
"So..." said Albus, obviously desperate to strike a conversation. "You got any brothers or sister?"
"No," said Scorpious shortly. His gaze turned back to outside.
"I have a sister- Lily. She's nine. And I have an older brother, James." Scorpious looked over. Rose could tell he was slightly interested by this.
"She has a younger brother, Hugo," said Albus, pointing to Rose. Scorpious's gaze fixed on Rose for such a long time, that she blushed deeply and turned back to view the scenery.
"So, what house you hoping to be in?" asked Albus. There was a moment of silence, then Scorpious spoke.
"Gryffindor. Or maybe, Ravenclaw." Rose looked over, startled.
"Don't you want to be in Slytherin?" she asked. Scorpious snarled.
"Who the hell wants to be in Slytherin?"
"Your dad was in Slytherin," said Albus, his eyes' widened expressively. Scorpious snarled.
"My father is nothing short of a coward." Albus opened his mouth again, then closed it.
"Do you not get on?" asked Rose. Scorpious shrugged.
"I don't get on with some people too," offered Albus. "Take my brother, for example." Scorpious looked at him.
"You don't get on?" Albus shook his head.
"He always teases me. We fight sometimes, too. He's a bit of a joker."
"I saw him before," said Scorpious. His face was blank, but it looked like he was deep in thought. "He didn't really take to me." He smirked as if he enjoyed the concept.
Rose was about to answer "He doesn't take to anyone, really," when there was a knock on the compartment door. An old women who looked around her early fifties, with greying hair, warm brown eyes' and a kind face smiled at them. Rose noticed she had a trolley with her which was stacked with countless famous chocolates and sweets.
"Anything off the trolley, dears?" Albus jumped up immediately. He turned to Rose.
"Hmm," said Rose, surveying the trolley. "I think I'll have a Bertie Botts every flavour beans."
Albus nodded then turned to Scorpious. "Would you like anything?" Scorpious looked surprised by his gesture.
"Oh...no. Thanks." Albus turned to the lady.
"Two chocolate frogs and a Bertie Botts every flavour beans, please." She handed the treats over and Albus dropped a few Sickles and a Knut into her hand. He slammed the door shut. He handed the box of sweets to Rose. Then he threw a chocolate frog to Scorpious who caught it deftly.
"Thanks," he said, sounding surprised again. There was silence as the three ate their goodies, then Scorpious spoke.
"So which houses do you guys want be in?"
"Well, I hope to god I'm not in Slytherin. I'm really anxious about whether I'd be sorted in there, even though my father said he-" Albus stopped shortly, then carried on. "I really want to be in Gryffindor," he added. He turned to Rose. "But she's probably going to be in Ravenclaw. With brains like hers..." Rose smiled fondly at him.
"Thanks, Al. But I don't really mind Gryffindor."
An hour later and the three changed into their robes. Albus now sat next to Scorpious. The two chattered away, but Rose sat on her own in the opposite seat, tapping her feet against the floor in a mixture of excitement and anticipation.
"Calm down, Rose," said Albus looking over at her. Scorpious smirked.
"I can't help it!" squealed Rose. Suddenly, she heard the low rumble of the train, and then it slowly came to a halt. She turned to them, her dark blue eyes' gleaming bright in the shadow of the station.
"Guys! This is it! We're at Hogwarts!"
