Hey! I finally found my notebook! So I have the real chapter four for you guys to read! Hope you like it! Keep in mind I wrote this years ago!


Ch. 4: Back to Hogwarts

When we got to the Weasley's, I told the trio what I saw. They were surprised I got the information. We discussed what it could mean and we all decided that Malfoy was definitely a death eater with a mission of some sort. Days past and soon it was time to go to Hogwarts. The Hogwarts Express was exactly how I remembered it, scarlet red. Kids were getting on the train and saying goodbye to his or her guardians.

"Okay, load your trunks onto the train except your carryon. Now, I guess this is goodbye. Have fun and don't get into trouble! Oh! And get good grades!" Mrs. Weasley said pulling them all into a hug.

"Bye mum! I'll miss you!" Ginny said.

"Yeah, bye mum."

"Bye Mrs. Weasley! Thank you for having me over this summer!" Harry said.

"Bye. Thanks for everything." Hermione said.

"Thank you for letting me stay at your house Mrs. Weasley." I said.

"It's no big deal Murtagh, come over anytime you like."

"Thanks again, bye."

On the train, Ginny sat with Dean Thomas, Ron and Hermione had prefect duty, so Harry found Nevil Longbottom and Luna Lovegood to sit with.

"Hey Harry!" I called after him. "Do you mind if I sit with you?"
"Of course not. Nevil, Luna, this is Murtagh Thorn. He's a new student in 6th year."

"Hi, nice to meet you." I said.

"Nice to meet you too." Luna said in a dreamy voice, just like her mom.

Time passed by and Harry and Nevil got invited to the Slug Club. Ron and Hermione came back, so I wasn't stuck by myself with Luna. Nevil got back about 30 minutes later without Harry. The train came to a screeching halt at Hogsmead station. We all got into a carriage pulled by threastrals. Soon we were sitting in the Great Hall.

After the hat sang its song, I was sorted into Gryffindor, no surprise. The first years were all nervous about being sorted.

"Pickeral, Joyce." McGonagell said. A small blonde girl walked up to the stool where the aging professor was standing with the hat. She sat down, eyes shifting around the room. After a few moments, the hat shouted-

"Gryffindor!" She came over to the Gryffindor table. The process repeated itself and soon all the first years were sorted. Professor Dumbledore stood up for the beginning of the year speech.

"This year we have a professor returning to teach his former class. I am pleased to introduce Professor Slughorn, who will be teaching potions. Our Defense Against the Dark Arts post will be filled by Professor Snape. Now, as everyone but the first years know, the forbidden forest is forbidden. Filtch would also like for me to remind you all that any products by the Weasley twins are forbidden as well. Thank you, now, tuck in."

Food magically appeared in front of everyone, and all the first years gasped in surprise. I just started grabbing food I liked. The food was magnificent. I hadn't eaten good food for a long time, not since I had last been to Hogwarts.

About 30 minutes later, Harry came in followed by Snivillus Greasy (Snape). Harry had blood all over his face.

"Harry! What happened?" Hermione was obviously concerned.


"What did he do?"
"I'll explain later."

"Fine, but at least let me clean off your face."

"What's wrong with it?"

"Harry, you have blood all over your face."

"Oh, go ahead and clean it off, please."
"Tergo!" Hermione said with a swish of her wand.

"Thanks Hermione."
"No problem. So, what -" I cut Hermione off.

"What did Slughorn want?"

"He wanted to know what happened at the Ministry last year."

"People were asking us about that on the train earlier as well." Hermione said, irked about it.

"Yeah, it was really annoying." Ron then impersonated a girl. "Is Harry really the 'Chosen One'?" We all laughed at that.

After dessert, Dumbledore stood again and all the food disapeared.

"What happened to his hand?" People asked around the room upon seeing his dieing hand for the first time.

"Nothing to worry about, I assure you. Now, to our new students, welcome, to our old students, welcome back! A year full of magical education awaits you. Have fun, but not too much fun. Prefects, please lead the first years to your common room. Thank you, have a good night."

Later that evening, we sat in the Gryffindor common room. The chairs looked as though they had seen better days. The fire place had a reddish fire this time, mainly because I'm the one who started the fire.

"So, Harry, what really happened on the train."
"Well..." He began.

"Well what? We know it has something to do with Malfoy." Hermione interrupted.

" I was spying on Malfoy. Malfoy found me, immobilized me, stepped on my nose, and threw the invisibility cloak over me. End of story."
