It was September first and the sun shone through the window of the old burrow, into a young eleven-year old's room. The closed curtains were too old and tattered to hold the light from hitting the girl's face. Riley Weasley groaned and flipped onto her stomach, trying to hide her face under the blanket. She laid in bed for a few minutes but all the rustling outside her door kept her from falling back asleep. She groaned as she sat up and moved her ginger hair out of her face before opening one blue eye to take in her surrounding.
Her room looked exactly the same as it has the majority of her life. Some posters of famous quidditch players and pictures of her family covered the wall while everything else in the room belonged to her younger sister, Ginny, who shared the room with her. She opened the other eye thanking Merlin that her suitcases were already downstairs since she wouldn't have the energy to carry them down thousands of steps. She looked over to the bed next to hers and she realized Ginny was already gone.
Chuckling to herself, she stretched, stood up, and quickly changed into comfortable clothes. She brushed out the tangles in her hair before making her way downstairs. She could already hear Percy bragging about his position as prefect and she unconsciously rolled her eyes.
Mom placed the last plate of food on the table and looked up. As soon as her eyes landed on me, she smiled widely.
"And here she is!" Mom said emotionally. "My first daughter going to her first year at Hogwarts! I remember when you were just born. We were only expecting Ronald so when you were born. It was a..."
"I know. I know." I replied annoyed. "It was a miracle! A blessing!"
Riley loved her mom. She really did but Molly Weasley got over emotional over everything that Riley did. After having five sons and expecting another one, when a girl popped out Molly could never forget. Molly chuckled and led Riley to her seat.
Almost immediately, Riley filled her plate up with a mountain of food, just like her twin, Ron, who was already stuffing his face.
"You'd think for a lady, you'd have manners," Percy said with a level of disgust he usually reserved for Fred and George. Riley decided to ignore him and finished her plate in no time. She put her dirty plate in the sink when her father came into the kitchen.
"What are you all doing here?" He asked shocked. "You're going to be late!"
Molly shook her head, "No, Arthur. You're going to be late."
He looked at the clock on the wall and his eyes widened. He gave everyone a kiss on top of their head before rushing out to work.
"Look, Fred, the last pair of twins are finally going to Hogwarts," George said walking into the kitchen, teasing their mother.
"I know, George, they grow up so fast," Fred replied, pretending to wipe a tear while Ron rolled his eyes.
"Are you done being annoying or can we head out?" Riley asked irritated.
After a lot of yelling and chaos, the Weasley's managed to get all the suitcases and packed lunches together before making their way to Kings Cross Station.
