Hermione Granger was many things. She was the smartest student in her class, she was one of the best students in her year at using magic, and she was rather... outspoken. But she wasn't the most popular student in Hogwarts, she didn't have many friends, and she was very, very lonely.
She didn't understand how to make people like her. Back at home, she'd been bullied day in and day out for how she looked, how she acted, and how she dressed. Her former classmates had thought that she was stupid for wanting to study, and they made fun of her for being a 'teacher's pet'. And while she hadn't had anyone bully her in Hogwarts, no one wanted to talk to her either. It was weird to her, she had gotten them so many house points, but...
She sighed and stared up at the ceiling as she laid in her bed.
"I wish that I could be different," Hermione muttered under her breath, "Then I could finally make a friend..."
'I doubt that'll ever happen though.' She thought to herself, 'Wishes don't come true after all...'
And with that, Hermione fell into a dreamless sleep...
An alarm went off, causing Hermione and the other girls in the dorm to wake up.
"Alright, get up you lazy lot!" The Gryffindor Prefect, who's name Hermione had forgotten, shouted. "You can't sleep forever!"
Hermione rubbed her eyes as she pulled her comforter off her bed. She was getting ready to make her bed, when something on her pillow caught her attention. Three eggs were on her pillow, one of the eggs was gold with red flames spread out across the egg, one of them was silver and green rings were wrapped around the egg, and the other was black with yellow flowers.
"What the..." Hermione simply stared at the eggs, and she blinked again, and at first, she thought she was seeing things. But when she opened her eyes, the eggs were still on her pillow. Then, she figured that one of the girls had put the eggs on her pillow as some kind of prank, but when she asked everyone she could, they seemed just as confused as her.
"No, I wouldn't put eggs on your pillow for some kind of joke," Lavender said when Hermione showed her the eggs, "That sounds like something Ron's brothers would do."
"I don't know Lavender," Padma said, "Those eggs just seem...rather tame compared to their usual pranks."
"Well, I guess you're right." Lavender said to Padma, before she turned back to Hermione, "Those eggs look really pretty by the way."
"What are you three standing around for?!" The prefect shouted as she marched over to Hermione, Lavender, and Padma. "Hurry up we have to- what's with those eggs Granger?"
Hermione told the prefect everything she had told the other girls.
"Well if it's supposed to be a prank, I don't see how it's funny," The prefect said, "But I'll let Professor McGonagall about it, anyway you three should get going!"
Hermione rushed to get to the great hall so she could grab a quick bite before she headed to class. The eggs she had found earlier today were in a small bag she was carrying with her. She was planning on showing the eggs to Professor McGonagall, she figured that her Head of House would do something about the eggs. She rounded the corner and accidentally ran into someone. They both fell to the ground, Hermione landed on top of the person and the two of them laid on the ground in a heap.
Hermione blushed as she found her face inches away from the person she had landed on. If she leaned in, she would be seconds away from kissing the person.
'Which would be great, most of the girls your age barely get this close!'
…Where had that come from? Hermione wasn't the type to think about romance, and a time like this wasn't the best way to, 'make a move' on someone she barely knew. Where had that weird thought suddenly come from?
Hermione blinked as the person she fell on top of began to speak.
"Could you please get off of me?" The boy asked, "You're kind of heavy..."
"Oh I'm sor-" Hermione blinked as she realized that she was lying on top of Harry Potter, the savior of the wizarding world.
' I can't believe I was that clumsy!' Hermione thought to herself, 'W-what should I say? W-what should I do? I've never been in this kind of situation before!'
'Oh, I can help with that! Character change into someone who can handle any situation!'
"Sorry about that," Hermione found herself saying as she got off of Harry, an orange beanie shaped hairpin appeared in her hair, she yanked him to his feet and smiled at him, "I'm really clumsy sometimes."
"It's alright," Harry said, "You looked like you were in a rush."
"Yeah I'm running a bit late for class," Hermione said as she bent down and picked something up from the ground, "Here are your glasses."
"Thank you," Harry said as he adjusted his glasses.
"You know, you look really cute without your glasses," Hermione said, "Have you ever considered getting contact lenses?"
'What did I say that?!' Hermione mentally shouted in her mind.
"U-um, thank you?" Harry said, though it sounded more like a confused question, "Are you okay?"
"Yeah," Hermione grinned and flashed him a peace sign, "I've never felt better!"
Harry simply stared as he watched Hermione run off towards the great hall.
"What's with her?" Ron asked as he caught up to Harry, "She's acting kind of weird..."
"I have no idea..." Harry said.
"W-what was that?!" Hermione asked herself as she stopped running. She had reached the Great Hall, and no one was there, meaning that she had just missed breakfast. "I've never done anything like that before!"
Suddenly, her bag opened, and the gold and orange egg floated out of it. It hatched, and a tiny girl with short blond hair floated into the air. She was wearing a red hat, a red and orange hoodie with a flower clip, and bright red boots.
"Well, that's because I had something to do with it," The girl said, "It's nice to meet you Hermione, my name is Amitie and I'm your guardian character!"
