Chapter 10- A Daughter's Curiosity and Love
A/N OMG I have been doing so much for school, junior year is definitely the hardest year of high school! And I will admit that I have been putting off writing by telling myself that I don't have time. I am busy and only getting about an hour or two of non school things on school days, so I have been putting other things ahead of this.
But I saw someone had wrote a comment a couple days ago so I started thinking about the story, and so now I am making my self write! Well without any further mumbling...
CHAPTER 10 (finally)
Ok so maybe I lied, I wasn't really going to hide for there dumb hide and seek game, I was going up into my room to listen to my ipod and draw. I went as quietly as I could so that James wouldn't come after me first. I yawned on my way up and closed the door softly and then put a silencing charm on the room.
I went over to my bag that sat by the bed that still needed to be made. I pulled out my ipod with its lime green and black gel cover, and turned on 'Defying Gravity' from the old muggle Broadway show Wicked. I sung along as I looked through the drawers in the small desk in the corner and found a couple of sheets of paper, and a few pencils.
"Ready or not! I am coming to find you losers!" Shouted James downstairs, and I locked the door and turned up my music louder.
I settled into the chair in front of the desk and began to draw a face that was half wolf and half human. It was really starting to look good when I heard it. "Angelica! Where are you? Are you in your room?" It sounded like Emi. I turned down 'Gay Boyfriend' by the Hazzards, and looked at the door to my bedroom. The doorknob was shaking. I slammed my brown colored pencil down and stalked over to the door.
After I unspelled the door I practically shouted "What!" I yanked the door open, and there stood my three half-siblings and a creepy old man in purple robes, that looked older than then America's government system. He looked vaguely familiar. I stared at him, and saw the half moon glasses, which helped me remember who he was. I had seen his picture many a times in Hogwarts a History. "Albus Dumbledore?"
"Ah, I see that I don't have to introduce myself. I take it that you know that I am the headmaster at Hogwarts, seeing as you know who I am." He said with a small smile.
"Yeeesss. And you are here talking to me because…" I trailed off.
"Your father would like me to sort you so that you will not have to be sorted with the first years on the first day of school." He said, with a smile.
I cocked an eyebrow. "Sorted?"
"Yes, we have four houses at Hog-" I didn't give him time to finish.
"I know what being sorted means; I just don't know why I need to be sorted since I am not going to go to your school." I said, I had never gone to school with other kids before, and I wasn't so sure I wanted to, especially not as the illegitimate daughter of Harry James Potter, the British Magical Worlds hero.
"But of course you are going to go to Hogwarts." Henry said.
"Yeah, where else would you go? Hogwarts is the only magical school in England." James said.
I laughed, "I would rather not go to school at all, then be forced to endure classes that are ridiculously behind. I am way ahead of the other 5th years. That's what happens when you have a private tutor."
Emi smiled and patted my hand. "Don't worry, I will be there! And I am sure that I will get into Gryffindor, and whether you get into either Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, one of us will be with you."
"But there are four houses. What if I get into one of the other two?" I asked sarcastically.
James rolled his eyes, "That's impossible; you have to get into either Ravenclaw or Gryffindor. You sure aren't lame enough to get into Hufflepuff, and Slytherin is where all the evil kids go. And you have generations of Gryffindor blood running through you." James said.
"Whatever house you get into, I am sure that Harry will be fine with it." Dumbledore said, "Why don't we go down to the kitchen, and you can put the sorting hat on. Even if you decide not to come to Hogwarts, it won't hurt to just see what house you would have been in."
I shrugged. It didn't matter to me, but there was no way that I wanted to go to that lame backward school. I had heard so many rumors about that place. As the five of us made our way down the stairs, Emi whispered to me, "It's against the rules to hide with magic. It's ok since it's your first time to play the game, but next time it means you are automatically the loser."
I just rolled my eyes. We had all just made it to the kitchen, when 'Dad' walked in, "I haven't missed it have I?"
"No, why don't we all just make a party out of the whole thing," I mumbled under my breath.
"No, you didn't miss it." Dumbledore said, opening a box that sat on the table. He pulled out a raggedy old hat that I recognized from the pictures of Hogwarts a History. The sorting hat. I sat in one of the chairs when he told me to and Dumbledore unceremoniously dropped the heavy felt hat onto my head. Suddenly to world was dark.
I heard the voice that it talked about in the history books for the first time, "well, well, well. Finally a Potter that is a little exciting. You are going to cause a lot of controversy." It gave a little chuckle, and hummed, "But where should I put you? There are two houses that you would fit well into, but in one you could be more, be greater! Only one house can fully help you get full use of your talents… Therefore you must go to…"
