The Chapters of Hogwarts.

The sun was not shining when the letter came to the house on Petersen

Dr. A barn owl dipped low to the ground, dropping the pale colored envelope it held in its beak. The envelope slid under the door and into the house where a woman who was cleaning the house found it. She looked at it, shook her head and took it to where her daughter was sitting at the table eating.

"Here you go Katriena, the final letter to that school of yours." Katriena's mom said handing her the letter.

"Thanks." Katriena said as she ripped open the letter. The words were written in green ink:

Dear Miss Katriena Young,

This is the final year you will be at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.We are looking forward to seeing you on September 1st on the Hogwarts Express. And please don't forget to bring your broomstick this year, Miss Young.



Professor McGonagall

Katriena looked at the letter again. It was really short compared to the other letters she had gotten form the school.

"Well I guess I'll give Jessi and Shannon a call to see if they got theirs too." Katriena said rising from the table.



About a week later found Katriena with two other girls. They were heading toward the basement of the mall.

"Is there anyone around Shannon?" Katriena asked as she took a wand from her pocket.

"Nope." Shannon said after she looked around.

Katriena went up to the wall, tapping on the bricks. As the bricks began to move she took a step back. The three girls watched as the bricks moved to revile an alleyway. They had opened the pathway into the wizard world, Diagon Alley.

"Okay where to first?" Shannon said opening her list of books and stuff.

"Well my robes from last year are getting short around the bottom. But for some reason my arms never seem to grow." Katriena said as she led the way down the cobblestone street toward Madam Malkin's Robes for all Occasions. She opened the door and all three went in.

"Hello my dears, how may I help you?" Madam Malkin asked as she walked over to the girls.

"I need new robes." Katriena said right before she was drug away to a stool.

As Katriena was standing on the stool, the new robes being pinned to the length that Katriena need them to be the door to the shop opened. Katriena looked up to see a red headed boy with tons of freckles on his nose come in. A girl with the same red hair and freckles closely followed him.

"Hello Ron." Jessi said from the stool where she was standing.

"Hi Jessi." Ron grinned at her as the red hair girl was showed to a different stool.

Ron and Jessi were in the same house at Hogwarts, both were Gryffindors.

"Hey you're the chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch team aren't you?"

Shannon said from the chair that she was sitting in. She was waiting for her sister to get done. She pushed her red/light brown hair out of her gray eyes.

"Yes. Do I know you?" Ron asked looking at her funny. "I could swear I've seen you before."

"You have Ron. Shannon's a chaser for the Ravenclaw team." The girl with the same red hair as Ron said.

"Oh that Shannon. Your friend, Ginny?" Ron said to the girl.

Katriena, who was now standing on the floor waiting for the seamstress to put her house crest on her new robes (Hufflepuff), spook up, "Shannon is a good chaser."

"Who are you? I've seen you before too, haven't I?" Ron looked at her puzzling.

"I'm Katriena Young. I play the postion of Beater on the Hufflepuff team." Katriena said as Madam Malkin handed her the new robes. Katriena and Shannon walked over to the counter where Katriena paid for them.

"Jessi, we're going down to the Apothecary. We'll meet you in front of Flourish and Blotts." Shannon said as they opened the door going outside.

"OK." Jessi said as the door closed behind them.

Ron looked at Jessi with a funny look.

"My sister is the red/light brown hair one. And the other one with glasses and brown hair is one of my closets friends." Jessi said as she saw his look in the mirror she was looking into. Her red/copper hair was straight and her hazel eyes were clear.



Meanwhile outside Apothecary Katriena and Shannon were trying to get the door. Just as they reached the door someone knocked into Katriena sending her flying backwards. She looked up in time to see a boy with blond hair rush off into the crowd. People were getting out of his way.

"Are you okay?" someone asked next to Katriena.

She looked up into a set of bright green eyes behind a pair of round glasses. Black hair fell down in the boy's face.

"You're Young right? Hufflepuff Beater?" The boy asked as he helped Katriena up to her feet.

"Yeah and of course I know you, you're Harry Potter. Gryffindor Seeker." Katriena said as she dusted herself off.

"Katriena you okay?" Shannon was standing at Katriena's elbow.

"Yea Shannon. Come on we need to get some potions ingredients." Katriena said as she started to walk toward the door again. She called over her shoulder, "Thanks Harry."



Twenty minutes later Jessi, Katriena and Shannon were standing outside the bookstore. In the window were some huge spell books. The door opened to reveal Harry, Ron, Ginny and another girl. The girl had brushy brown hair.

"Hello again." Harry said seeing Katriena and Shannon.

"Hello." All three said back.

"I don't know if we've meet but I'm Hermione." The girl held out a hand.

"I know you of course." Jessi said.

"Ron, come on we need to go. Mum and Dad are waiting in the Leaky Cauldron for us." Ginny said tugging on her brother's sleeve.

"Well see you later." Ron said as the four headed off.



Toward the end of the day Jessi and Katriena went back to the wall of bricks that they had come through. Shannon was at the Leaky Cauldron getting a room for them. Jessi took out her wand, 10 inches dragon heartstring ash, tapping on the bricks. The wall opened up and the girls went through it. There in front of them stood their parents. They were there to give the girls their trunks and animals. Jessi mom handed her an owl and rat. The owl, RoweWing, was her pet. The rat, Pippin, was Shannon's. Her dad pushed two trunks into Diagon Alley. He gave Jessi a big hug. Katriena's mom handed a carrier with a white cat in it to her. The cat, Trouble, was purring inside. Katriena grabbed her trunk pulling it inside the alley.

"Now be good." Katriena's dad said smiling at her just as Shannon ran up to them out of breath.

"Good-bye. Send us an...owl when you get to school." Jessi and Shannon's mom said as the bricks began to close. The three girls waved good- bye.

When the wall had completely closed the girls tied the cages with the animals on top of the trunks and started to drag them toward the Leaky Cauldron.

"I got us a room right next to Brian's." Shannon said as they slowly made their way down the street.

Brian, another student at Hogwarts, was a close friend of theirs. He was Head Boy, the first Hufflepuff to become one in a long time.

"Cool." Katriena panted as they finally reached the Leaky Cauldron.

Tom, the innkeeper, helped them take the trunks upstairs. He left them with a toothless smile.

"I can't believe tomorrow is September 1st." Katriena said as she let Trouble out of her cage.

"I know." Shannon said as Jessi went to answer the knock at their door.

She opened the door to reveal Harry, Ron, Hermione and Brian.

"Hey guys. We wanted to know if you wanted to eat with us tonight. Mum and Dad said it would be okay." Ron said smiling.

"Sure." Jessi answered for all three of them.

That night was one of the funniest they had had in a long time. Ron and Jessi got into a talk about what would happen if Gryffindor came in first again this year. Shannon and Ginny along with Hermione listened to Mrs. Weasley as she talked about her years at Hogwarts. Katriena, Brian and Harry were taking to Mr. Weasley about Muggle made stuff. This time Mr. Weasley was asking about Game Boys. (Katriena had brought hers to play with on the train.)



Next morning Tom woke them all up bright and early. They had a huge breakfast made up with ham and eggs. They than got all their stuff back down the stairs and out the door on the Muggle side of the Leaky Cauldron. Outside waiting were some taxis. The poor guys who drove them were looking like they were about to pass out. With two cats, Hermione brought her Crookshanks, three owls, Harry and Ron both had one besides

Jessi, and one rat plus all the people going to the train station it was no wonder that the poor drivers looked faint.

The drivers couldn't have been happier to let them out at the train station when they got there. Crookshanks had some how got his paw into Ron's owl's cage. The poor owl started to hoot and shriek as Crookshanks waved his paw around trying to get the noisy thing.

Hermione was scratched up by the time they went through the barrier to get to Platform 9 3/4.

"Katriena did you remember to bring your broom this year?" Asked Brian as they walked down the side of the train looking for an empty compartment.

"Yes I did." Katriena said as they found one. She pushed Trouble's cage on the top of the rack above the seats. Shannon put Pippin right next to Trouble on the rack. The two girls helped Jessi and Hermione put the other animals on the racks. They than stepped off the train to say good-bye to the Weasleys.

"Here Ron, Ginny some sandwiches." Mrs. Weasley said handing Ron a bag with sandwiches in it.

As the train left the station they all went back to the compartment they had found. As they opened the door a blond hair boy rushed past them. The group didn't have a chance to say anything to him when Crookshanks, Trouble, Pippin, RoweWing and Pig rushed out of the compartment at them.

"Trouble come here girl!" Katriena said as she rushed after her cat.

Shannon and Jessi had no problem catching their animals. Hermione and Katriena got scratched up all over again. Ron had the hardest time trying to get his owl back in his cage. It turned out only Harry's Hedwig stayed inside her cage even after the door was opened.

"Okay, let's not do that again." Ron said as he sat rubbing his fingers were Pig had bitten him.

"I know what you mean." Hermione said as Crookshanks sat spitting in his carrier.

They played Exploding Snap as the train sped on toward the school. About an hour before they got there none other than the blond hair boy opened the door to their compartment. Two other boys followed him.

"Hello, Weasley, Potter. I heard you had a problem with your animals earlier." The blond hair one said.

"Shut up Malfoy. Get out of here and take Crabbe and Goyle with you." Hermione said.

"The only reason you would know about the animals is because you were the one who let them out." Ron said as he stood up.

"Was Ron hurt by his stupid pet?" Malfoy sneered.

"You had better get going there Malfoy. Or do I have to beat you over the head like I do to the Bludgers?" Katriena said also standing up. She didn't like Malfoy any more than Ron did. He had called her and some of her friends from Hufflepuff mudbloods last year. That and he had told his friends, in front of a lot of people, that girls couldn't be beaters. That's why she had hit a Bludger straight at his head last year.

"Come on Malfoy. Let's go. The train is about to stop any minute now." Crabbe said trying to pull Malfoy away, but Malfoy shook him off.

"Think you five are better than us? Being muggle born?" Malfoy started to say, but Harry cut him off by pulling out his wand.

"Get out of here." Harry said pointing the wand at him.

Malfoy looked at it, smiled and reached inside his robes for his wand. As the rest of the people in the compartment were going for their wands too when the train started to slow down.

"You got off this time Potter." Malfoy said putting his wand back in his robe. He moved back out the door followed by Crabbe and Goyle.

"I swear next time I see that kid I'm going to beat his brains in." Ron said as he got all his stuff together as the train finally came to a complete stop.

As they got off the train a loud voice could be heard over the noise, "First years this way!" it was Hagrid, the school's gamekeeper.

Harry, Ron and Hermione rushed over to see him. Katriena, Jessi, Shannon, Ginny and Brian walked over to the waiting carriages. Their trunks and other stuff would be sent up to the castle while they were eating.

"I can't believe that this is our final year." Jessi said as she watched out the window as the castle drew closer.

"I know. I can't wait to crawl into my bed tonight. I'm tried." Katriena said as she covered her mouth with her hand as she yawn.

The carriages slowed to a stop at the great doors. They all went inside to the great hall. Katriena waved good-bye to Jessi and Shannon as she went to seat with her fellow Hufflepuffs. Brian sat across from her at the table. She was just about to get into a conversation with her friend Marie when the doors opened again this time to revile the first years. Everyone at Hogwarts loved this part of the new year. It was the Sorting Ceremony. All the new students would put on the Sorting Hat and it would tell you what house you would be in. Katriena could still remember when she was up there. She went last because of her last name. She had wanted to be in the same house as Jessi but didn't. She didn't mind anymore. She liked being a Hullepuff. Shannon had once told her that she wanted to be the same house as one of them but now she liked Ravenclaw.

"Okay, as I call your name please come forward and place the Sorting Hat on your head." Professor McGonagall said as she held a long list of names.

"Hey Katriena that girl up there isn't she a friend of yours from summer marching band?" Brian whispered as a girl named Armie, Susan became a Ravenclaw.

"Which girl?" Katriena whispered back as a boy, Bent, Mike became a Gryffindor.

"That one." Brian said just as Professor McGonagall called out her name.

"Curnow, Jennifer." The girl was shaking as she sat down on the stool. The Sorting Hat was put on her head.

"Hum, Slytherin!" the hat shouted.

The girl took off the hat and walked over to join the Slytherin table.

"Poor girl." An icy voice said next to Katriena's elbow. She looked over to see the Hufflepuff ghost, the Fat Friar coming out of the floor next to her.

"Hello Fat Friar. How was your vacation?" Katriena asked polity.

"Well hello Hufflepuff Beater. It was okay. Sir. Nick is mad again. The Headless Hunt turned him down yet again." The ghost said as he moved along the table saying hi to all the Hufflepuffs. Katriena started to giggle as some of the new Hufflepuffs were shocked to see a ghost in the middle of the table.

"Hey Katriena look, a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher." Brian said as all the new students were done being sorted into their houses.

Katriena was about to say something when the Headmaster, Professor Dumbledore stood up. With a few short words the feast begain. The plates were suddenly filled with food. Katriena and everyone else ate their fill. Katriena got up behind Brian as they left the table. Brian led the new first years toward their common room. They went up some stairs than done some stairs. As Katriena was about to crawl into a hole that they had to pass through, she caught the words of the girls in front of her.

"Julie where's Ann?" one asked the other.

"I don't know. Maybe she fell behind. I'll go..." her friend started to say when Katriena caught her off.

"No you two keep going. It's better if you learn your way around here first before you go look for someone who is lost. I'll go. I know the pass word and where the common room is." Katriena said as she climbed back out.

"Thanks." The two girls said.

Katriena walked back toward the stairs. It was easy to get lost when using them. She herself had done that before. She was climbing a flight of stairs when she saw Jessi coming back down the stairs, a small girl holding her hand. The girl had black hair and pale sliver eyes. She looked really scared.

"Hey Jessi." Katriena said as she climbed to meet her friend.

"Ah Katriena, I was just on my way down to Professor Sprouts office. Ann here got mixed up with the new Gryffindors. It's a good thing you're here now I don't have to go all the way down to the first floor." Jessi said as she smiled down at Ann.

"Hello Ann. I'm Katriena Young. We're in the same house. Come on I'll take you to the common room." Katriena said as she started to lead Ann back down the stairs. "Bye Jessi. See you tomorrow in the great hall in the morning."

Next morning dawn bright and clear. Katriena got her new class schedule. She had the same classes with the same houses as before. As she was helping herself to some toast when RoweWing flew down dropping two letters on the table. One had her name on it the other had Brian's. RoweWing came back to sit on the table, she helped herself to Katriena's juice.

"Brian, a letter." Katriena said handing Brian's his.

She opened hers:

Hey Katriena lets do you know what tonight. K?

Jessi

PS Send RoweWing back with your answer.

"Brian you going to send yours back or we can both write on mine." Katriena said as she wrote an answer down.

"Tell her no for me. I need to still help the first years." Brian said as Katriena wrote what he said down.

"Here RoweWing." The owl took it and flew toward the Ravenclaw table to get Shannon's response than flew back to the Gryffindor table. Than she flew back out the windows with the other owls.

The Hufflepuffs and the Gryffindors had doubly Herbology together the first thing of the day.

"Hey Jessi." Brian said as he and Katriena sat down at the same table as Jessi.

"Did you get that girl to her room?" Jessi asked.

"Yes." Katriena said as Professor Sprout waked into the greenhouse.

"Today we will be talking about the different types of trees. We'll start of f with the Whomping Willow. Please follow me class." Professor Sprout said as she held the door open so the class could go outside.

"Man why does she have to talk about the Whomping Willow now? We could have used some information our second year and our third." Harry said to Ron and Hermione. The two started to laugh softly. In their second year Harry and Ron had flown a car to school. Just as they got to the school they crashed into a tree. Harry could still remember what Ron had said, "Of all the trees we could've hit, we had to hit one that hits back." And in their third year they found a secret path way that lead to the Shrieking Shack. Of course it was located between the roots of the tree.

"This class is a tree not to be messed with...." Professor Sprout started to say when she heard Ron say something.

"Unless you know what knot to hit." Ron said to Harry. He looked up as the noise around him died down.

"Is there something you want to say Mr. Weasley?" Professor Sprout said looking at him, as he grew red, when he didn't say anything she went on, "I didn't think so. Now as I was saying..."

The class listened to what she had to say. Even though Katriena and Brian were in her house, like all Hufflepuffs, Professor Sprout was fair to all. They than went back to the greenhouse to take notes on what they had just learned.

As the bell rang the Hufflepuff Quidditch team captain, Will Streams ran up to Katriena.

"Katriena did you remember your broom this year?" Will asked as they walked back up to the school and headed toward Charms class.

"Yes I did Will." Katriena said as she opened the door to the room. Professor Flitwick was the teacher. Today they took notes on different charms. Than came lunch. Than after that Defense Against the Dark Arts.

The new teacher turned out to be a teacher that they had had before. It was Professor Lupin. They had had him in their third year. He was back even though he was a werewolf, but parents didn't care anymore. Well that's what everyone hoped.

"Hello class and welcome back to another school year. This tram we are going to go over the following..." Professor Lupin said as some of the class started to zone out. They had it for the day after charms class. They were still zoning when the door opened suddenly. The whole class jumped.

In the door stood Professor McGonagall. She held something in her hand.

"Ah Professor McGonagall how can I help you?" Lupin asked looking up at her form the notes he had been reading.

"I need to see the following two people, Young and Hardy." Professor McGonagall didn't look happy about something.

Katriena was shaking slightly as she got up from her chair. She looked at Brian as they left the room. Outside in the hall waiting for them was Jessi.

"This way please." Professor McGonagall said as she walked down the hall toward her office.

She held the door open as the three students filed past her into the room. They stood in front of the desk as she sat behind it.

"Okay now I want you to tell me what this note means." She held out a note.

Katriena, Jessi and Brian lead forward to read what it said:

Let's go down to the Forbidden Forest tonight.

Jessi

Katriena

Brian

They looked up from the note at each other.

"Well?" Professor McGonagall asked as she looked at the three students.

"We don't have any idea about this. I didn't send this note to Katriena and Brian." Jessi said at last.

"Yeah, plus that's not my hand writing. Look." Katriena signed her name on a different piece of paper. It looked nothing like that handwriting on the note.

"I take it that's not your handing writing earthier is it Mr. Hardy?" Professor McGonagall said looking at Brian.

"No Professor." Brian shook his head.

"Mr. Malfoy gave this to me at the start of his class this morning." Professor McGonagall said looking down at it. "You three may go. It's to late to go back to class so you can go back to your common rooms."

"Thank you Professor." They said.

Professor McGonagall stopped Katriena as she reached the door, "And Miss Young did you remember to bring your broom this year?"

"Yes." Katriena smiled as she left the room.

All three of them slowly made their ways to the stairs.

"When I get a hold of Malfoy he's dead." Katriena said as she walked next to the others.

"Well first game of the year is against the Slytherins." Jessi said as she started to head up some stairs.

"I hope you beat them." Katriena said as she and Brian made their way down some stairs.
