Harry Potter walked around what used to be Hogwarts castle. The castle was in ruins. There was dust and rocks, and everything was just… broken. He was supposed to meet with McGonagall about the new term, and how the castle was supposed to be re-built. But at this rate, it would take a rather long time.
As he made his way across the castle, he saw a familiar blonde male standing against the wall. Harry smirked.
"Oi, Draco!" he called, and the blonde looked up and grinned. He quickly looked around, and when he saw no one, he ran for harry, and jumped into his arms, hugging him tightly.
"I missed you lion" he said, and harry smiled at his nickname. It was certainly better than scar head. His arms wrapped around Draco's waist.
"Oh I missed you too, dragon. What are you doing here? I thought McGonagall told all the students to go home." he said, and he nodded.
"I got a note from here to meet with her today." He said, and harry looked surprised.
"So did i. I wonder what it's about. Do you think she's found out about us?" he asked.
"No, but we certainly have" someone said behind them. they spun around and saw pansy, goyle, and blaise.
"I- We were- I mean-" Draco began but she smiled.
"It's ok. You two have been smitten over each other for years. But I'd break apart the love fest if I were you. Granger and Weasely, and the rest of the gang of misfits are coming down, they were a little bit behind us" she said, and harry gave him a swift kiss on the lips and they broke apart.
"Harry!" they heard and they all spun around to see Ginny, Ron, Hermione, dean, Seamus, Neville and Luna walking towards them.
"Hey guys. You get letters too?" he asked, and they nodded.
"Yep. What are they doing here?" Ron asked, pointing to the slytherins.
"They got letters too. We need to get going, she's expecting us" he said, and they all made their way to McGonagall's office. When they arrived, harry said the password, and made their way upstairs.
"Hello! Come in. Now, this will only take a minute. As you can see, Hogwarts is still in a state of dissary. The school is closing for one year to complete renovations. Now, you 12 have been selected to go to another wizarding school." She said.
"Durmstrang!?" Draco said excitedly.
"Beaubaton's?" Hermione asked.
"No. The East Coast Academy for witchcraft and wizardry" she said, and they all just looked at her.
"America?" harry asked when no one said anything.
"Yes. It's settled in… let's see here." She said, picking up the letter from her desk.
"Tennessee. Now, no need to get upset, the decision is finale. I want you all to leave, today. Go and get your things and meet me back here in one hour" she said, and she dismissed them.
"Where the hell is Tennessee?" Draco asked, and harry conjured a map with his wand.
"There." He said, pointing.
"I wonder if their as… well educated as we are" Hermione asked, and they all nodded.
"Alright, you heard her. Let's meet back here in one hour" harry said, and everyone made their way back to their dormitories. Once everyone had their things, they met back at the eagle and went back upstairs where the portkey was waiting for them.
"Alright, now, please, don't cause any trouble? Please?" she asked and they nodded. They got hold on the portkey and they landed on a grassy hill.
"Hey ya'll! You're from that fancy England school aren't ya?" someone said behind them.
"Oh good lord…" Draco whispered, looking at her. She had two pigtail braids over her shoulders, blue jeans and a white tank top with a checkard over shirt.
"Welcome to the east coast Acadamy for witchcraft and wizardry! What's her name… Mc something told me that ya'll were comin! Come on, we got good food comin! Holy Crab Cakes! Your harry potter!" she exclaimed and harry nodded slightly.
Yeah I am. What's your name?" he asked and she smiled and bashed her eyelashes.
"Jennifer. Jennifer Castillo. It's so nice to meet you! You're more handsome in person" she said flirtatiously. Draco glared at her.
"I'll have you know-" he began, but harry stopped him.
"Thank you very much Jennifer. That's very kind of you. Can you take us to see your headmaster?" he asked, and she nodded.
"Course I can! Now, ya'll just leave your stuff in the hallway with all the other things. Our caretaker, Mr. Mitch will take your things up to your dorm. There's a lot I gotta explain to yous" she said, and harry heard Hermione sigh deeply. It was going to be a very long year.
