Chapter 16

Your only late if you fall asleep in divination

I ran as fast as I could to the Divination class, as I neared the bottom of the stairs I saw Ron and Harry talking.

"She ditched us, I thought she had changed!" said an aggravated Ron.
"She didn't ditch us, she's probably just late" argued Harry.
"Late? People aren't bloody late when you leave divination!"

"Their only late if they fall asleep in divination," I said to Ron, walking up to them. Ron's ears turned a dark red as he looked at the floor.

"I'm sorry im late, by the way," I continued "Professor Trawlney had me run something down to Professor Snape, and I went to the wrong classroom, so then I had to run all the way to the DADA class and now I'm back here, having to run up those stairs to give Professor Trawlney his response. By the way, what class do you two have next?" The second the blood-traitors peanut sized brain caught up to what I had said he said, "Do we have to walk up those stairs with you too?" We all laughed at this.

"No Ronald, you don't HAVE to, but if you want to you can" I said. Ron looked at the stairs, then looked at me and said, "Well, hurry up, we only have a little bloody time to get to our next class!"

Edward POV

(A/N - Bet you werent expecting this now were you?)

We had been in Hogwarts for a few days, and everyone was getting used to the place so we wouldn't get lost, most of the days it didn't really matter if we got lost, but today all the other students were coming, and classes were to be started tomorrow, meaning that we couldn't get lost in case we were late.

"Here they come" said Carlisle.

I looked out the window to see carriages heading in, but the strangest thing was, that the carriages were being pulled by horses with wings. They looked sinister and spooky. They had big, bony figures with a dragon-like face which seemed to hold white, glittering eyes lacking both expression and pupils.

"They're thestrals," said Dumbledore, walking up behind me, "Only to be seen by those who have seen death," I looked at him, questionably.

"You have seen death before sir?"

"Too much to remember" said the old man. "The students will be wondering where I am, come along now, go tell your family that it is time to introduce yourselves." After saying that, he walked away.

While Dumbledore was giving his speech, I realized that I couldn't only not read the teachers mind, but the students as well. Carlisle had thought that it had something to do with most of the teachers knowing occlumency, 'The magical defense of the mind against external penetration' as Severus suggested, but eleven year olds were most likely not able to know how to use it, I was starting to think that it had to do with them being witches and wizards. Then there was my beautiful Bella, I could never read her mind, but she wasn't a witch. After Dumbledore's speech, and first years getting sorted, it was our turn.

"Cullen, Alice" called Minevra.

The hat had barely touched her head when it yelled "GRIFFINDOR" I guess my sister was truly a brave one.

"Cullen, Edward"

I walked over to sit on the stool to be sorted, when the hat touched my head I could feel another mind inside of mine.

Hmmmm … you truly are a brave one, leaving your dear Bella behind like that for your safety, you truly are a

"GRIFFINDOR!" yelled the hat. Dumbledore had warned us that the hat could talk, but never before had I imagined it like that, like it being able to penetrate your mind.

"Cullen, Emmet"


"Hale, Jasper"

I was wondering why the hat was taking so long on Jasper, it must have been because he was once the 'God of War' and had the ability to think like a Ravenclaw. As soon as I thought that the hat yelled


"Hale, Rosalie"


As we sat in our seats at our own tables, food started appearing everywhere. I could tell that Rosalie was feeling sick to her stomach. All of the sudden glasses appeared in front of us. Glasses filled with blood, animal blood. I looked over at Dumbledore and saw him wink at us. Once everybody had finished eating Dumbledore announced "Mr. Potter, Ms. Granger, Mr. Weasley, and Ms. Riddle I would like a word with you before you go down to your common rooms." This was our cue to go to Dumbledore's office.
