"Peyton, wake up!" Someone said in my ear.
"Come on, Wakie, wakie!"
I groaned again, but I opened my eyes this time.
My sister-in-law Kylee stared down at me. Her blond, curly hair making a curtain around her face.
She raised her eyebrows, "Do I need to get water?"
I sat up quickly, "I'm up! I'm up!"
She chuckled her blue eyes sparkling, "That's what I thought. Hurry up and get dressed, breakfast is ready."
She left me to get dressed in peace. I threw my covers off and got out of bed. I went over to my dresser and opened a few drawers. I threw on a pair of jeans, a purple shirt, and black converse high-tops.
I put my long, strait brown hair into a pony tail in front of the mirror. I noted that my purple shirt accented my gray eyes nicely.
I walked down the hall to our kitchen, where Kylee had made pancakes and bacon.
"Mmm, smells good." I commented.
My older brother, Josh, was all ready at the table, reading the Daily Prophet and eating. I sat down across from him.
"Morning" He said, not looking up.
"Morning" I replied.
"So, are you excited to be going to a new school?" Kylee asked as a plate of hot pancakes and bacon sat itself in front of me, directed by Kylee's wand.
I shrugged, "I guess."
Kylee sat down next to Josh, carrying her own plate in her hands.
"Really? Are you nervous?" She asked.
"A little" I confessed, grinning.
Kylee laughed, "I bet"
Kylee, Josh, and I are all on Platform nine and three quarters.
"I think you'll love Hogwarts." Kylee said, "I certainly did."
I smiled, grateful for her trying to make me less nervous.
I sighed, "I'll miss you both. Like always."
"We'll miss you too, sis" Josh said.
"Definitely." Kylee agreed.
I smiled sadly, "Bye. I'll write as soon as possible."
"Okay" Josh said, giving me a hug. "Bye."
I hugged him back.
"Bye Kylee" I said, giving her a hug.
"Bye" She said.
I grabbed my owl's cage and picked up my trunk.
"Love you both" I said.
"We love you too" Josh said, smiling along with Kylee. I smiled back.
"See you at Christmas" I said.
They just nodded. I turned towards the giant red train, and climbed on.
I found an empty compartment and sat Monroe, my owl, down on the seat. I put my trunk on the rack up ahead, and then sat down next to Monroe.
"Well Monroe, it's just you and me again." I said, slipping an owl treat through the bars for him. He hooted softly at me.
There was a knock on the glass door. I looked up.
A pretty girl with black hair and brown eyes was standing on the other side of the glass. Next to her, there was a boy with dirty blond hair, and ice blue eyes. I stood up and slid the door open.
"May we sit with you?" The girl asked.
I smiled, "Sure, go ahead."
I sat back down, so I wouldn't be in their way. They put their trunks on the rack and then sat down across from me.
"Hi. I'm Emma Snow, that's Landon Miller" She said.
"Nice to meet you." I said.
The boy smiled at me. My stomach squirmed uncomfortably, but I just passed it off as nerves.
I smiled back shyly.
"I don't think I've seen you around before. Are you new here? There's no way you're a first year." Emma said.
I laughed, "No, you haven't. I'm a transfer student. My name is Peyton Anderson." I replied.
"Oh, cool! What school did you come from?" Landon asked.
"You've probably never heard of it. It's a small, private school called Madam Tibb's Magic Academy" I said.
"Yeah, never heard of it." Landon said.
"Me neither. What year are you in? Do you know?" Emma asked.
I nodded, "Yeah, I do actually. I'm in sixth year. I have to be sorted with the first years though."
"Awesome! We're in sixth year too!" Emma said excitedly.
"Awesome!" I said.
The castle was huge; I'd never seen anything like it before. Kylee had never said anything about exactly how big it was.
"How do you not get lost?" I asked.
Landon laughed, "You memorize things eventually. After you've gotten lost plenty of times."
"Gee, thanks. That certainly helps." I said sarcastically.
He grinned at me, and I couldn't help but to smile at him.
I had to meet Headmistress McGonagall when we got to the castle, so Landon and Emma left.
She saw me and looked confused for a minute, but comprehension dawned on her.
"Miss Anderson?" She asked.
I nodded, "Yes ma'am, that's me."
The wait was nerve-wracking. I had to wait for all of the 11-year-olds before I could be sorted. Why couldn't I have been first? I sighed; I guess it doesn't really matter anyway.
After the last first year, McGonagall made an announcement,
"Last but not least, we have a transfer student who will need to be sorted. Miss Anderson?"
I took a deep breath, and then walked towards the stool. I sat down, and put the old hat on my head. It talked into my ear for a few minutes before shouting "RAVENCLAW!" for everyone to hear.
The table of blue and bronze burst in to cheers. I noticed Emma and Landon at that table, and went to sit by them.
Relief filled me; at least I would know two people. I was oddly grateful that Emma and Landon had decided to ask to sit with me. I could tell we were going to be great friends.
Emma stood up and hugged me tightly.
"Jeez, Em, don't kill her" Landon teased.
Emma let go of me and apologized.
I laughed, "It's okay, I'm just glad I'm in the same house as you two."
"Welcome to Ravenclaw." Landon said.
