BWA: -Lost for words-
Muse: What's wrong?
Muse: Then why aren't you talking?
BWA: I'm... a little overwhelmed at the moment.
Fred: You want some help?
George: -Runs in-
Fred: -Looks at screen- ....
Muse: -Slaps forehead-
Emmett: Let me help.
Emmett: Holy freaking crap! We've reached the last chapter of our story ladies and gents!
BWA: -Gains composure- Yep! This is the start of a very big adventure! The sequel is already finished and I'll start posting it straight away!
Emmett: So read on! See for yourself as to how the year ends!
BWA: Well done. Oh and by the way. I LOVE YOU ALL!
Emmett: ME TOO!
The House Cup.
"When do you think he'll wake up?" Ron asked.
I rolled my eyes. "You're so impatient. Let him rest." I replied.
"He's been resting for three days!" He complained.
Ron, Hermione and I were leaning on the railing of the path above the hospital wing.
"Dumbledore came out a while ago, so he must have been talking, must you be so impatient?" Hermione asked.
"Why are you two picking on me?" Ron asked. We laughed.
I turned and saw Harry looking up at us, I elbowed Hermione in the ribs and they both turned and saw what I was looking at. I laughed.
"Alright there Ron?" Harry asked.
"Alright." He replied. "You?"
Harry shrugged. "Alright. Amber? Hermione?"
I grinned. "Brilliant."
Hermione smiled. "Never better."
We all sat in the great hall, Slytherin banners hung over our heads. I still couldn't believe that Slytherin had won the house cup, they didn't deserve it after all the crap we went through. But… I didn't want to be a sore loser. So I shut up.
I fiddled with the hat on my head and Fred laughed at me. I scrunched my nose up at him. "Shut up." I said with a grin, he just continued laughing. The sound of a spoon tapping glass hushed the students in the large room. Dumbledore stood up.
"Another year gone." He said. I couldn't believe it myself. "And now, as I understand it, the house cup needs awarding. And the points stand thus. In fourth place; Gryffindor with 312 points." I sighed. "In third place; Hufflepuff with 352 points." We clapped for the other house. "In second place; Ravenclaw with 426 points." We clapped again. "And in first place; with 472 points. Slytherin house."
The Slytherin table burst into applause, I didn't clap. They didn't deserve it.
Dumbledore spoke again. "Yes, well done Slytherin. However." I looked up. "Recent events must be taken into account. And I have a few, last minute points to award." I smiled. "To Miss, Hermione Granger." She looked up. "For the cool use of intellect, when other were in grave peril. Fifty points." We cheered. "Second. To Mr Ronald Weasley, for the best played game of chess Hogwarts has seen these many years. Fifty points." We cheered once again. "Third, to Mr Harry Potter. For pure nerve and outstanding courage. I award Gryffindor house. Sixty points." We cheered remotely louder this time.
Hermione leaned in. "We're tied with Slytherin."
Harry grinned. "I have a feeling I know who else is going to get awarded points."
"I have two more people to award points to. To Miss, Amber Dawson. For showing great potential and willingness to help her friends when most others wouldn't. Fifty points." My cheeks flushed pink as Fred hugged me to his side. I laughed. The Gryffindor table exploded with applause.
"Who knew you had it in you, hey squirt?" He said.
"Who didn't?" Harry asked.
"And finally, it takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends. I award, ten points. To, Neville Longbottom." We all practically screamed in happiness. Neville looked shocked. "Assuming that my calculations are correct, I believe that a change of decoration is in order." He clapped once and the green banners turned red. The snake changing to a lion. "Gryffindor wins, the house cup!"
We stood up and cheered, laughed, hugged, anything we could think of to express our happiness. We all threw our hats up in the air. We did it!
"Come on now, hurry up, you'll be late. Trains leaving, go on, go on." Hagrid encouraged, moving his hands as students hurried onto the train. Harry and I gave our owls to one of the assistants.
Hermione and I waved to Hagrid who waved back, smiling.
"See you soon Hagrid!!" I yelled with a grin.
"Lookin' forward to it!" He replied. I laughed.
"Come on Harry." Hermione said.
Harry looked at us, "Hang on a minute." He ran back to Hagrid.
Hermione and I watched as Hagrid handed him a book and hugged him, I smiled.
"Feels strange to be going home, doesn't it?" Hermione asked as Harry made his way back. He smiled.
"I'm not going home, not really." He replied.
We all turned to look at Hagrid who smiled and waved once again. We got on board and walked to our cabin. As we sat down I looked out the window and looked at the castle in the distance.
What a year, I'd learnt so much and I was eternally grateful. If so much could happen in the first year, just think of what would happen next year.
I couldn't wait.
BWA: There you have it! We've officially finished the first story!
Emmett: But, whoa!! There's still a stack of sequels left!
BWA: There sure is, so, be sure to keep a sharp eye out for the sequel: 'Secrets in Second Year.'
Emmett: That's a cool name.
BWA: Thanks, well, I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I did writing it. It was really frustrating at times, but hey, that's what makes a story good.
Emmett: And, the random moments we all have make it even better.
BWA: -Grins- They sure do.
Amber: Well, this is where we say goodbye for the time being.
Fred & George: Thanks for reading!
Hermione, Harry & Ron: Thanks for reviewing!
Cedric: Thanks for... PIE!
Cedric: What? Pie is yum.
Edward: Can you believe that we're the same person?
BWA: At the moment... No.
BWA: Anyway, thanks so much to Slytherin Sweet, your reviews kept me going! You rule!!
Emmett: Don't forget! Stay tuned for the sequel! 'Secrets in Second Year!'
