A/N I have decided that I will combine the first-year classes for my convenience. And, out of my courtesy, I will place the class schedule in the chapter every time the day changes. The schedule will be me placing classes that I know about into a period of time, so in other words, the set-up of the classes' times is only for this story. If there is a class that I have missed, please tell me so that I can fix the schedule. Enjoy.
Class Schedule: Tuesday.
Charms- 9:00 A.M.-10:40 A.M.
Herbology- 10:50 A.M.-12:10 P.M.
Defense Against the Dark Arts- 12:20 P.M.-2:10 P.M.
Transfiguration- 2:20 P.M.-4:00 P.M.
It was the first day of school, and the previous night Rebecca had received her schedule for her classes. She rose early and headed down to the Great Hall, and only a few students were already seated or talking to fellow house members.
Rebecca seated herself near as she could get to the Staff Table while still at her own table with two seats on each side of her. Soon enough, more than half of the students from each house were seated, and breakfast appeared on the tables.
Just like the night before, the Hufflepuffs' table was empty of food. As soon as she was finished eating, Rebecca headed down to her very first class, and a few other first-years followed her there.
She arrived at the Charms class at 8:54, so there wasn't too much time before class started, but Rebecca wanted to socialize so that she could have a few friends at least. She looked around the room to see if she could find somebody to talk to, and, by chance, saw a lone girl with Gryffindor robes that was reading a book. Rebecca walked up to the Gryffindor and said, "Hello there," and waited for a reaction.
The Gryffindor looked up from her book and said, "Oh, hello."
Rebecca automatically introduced herself, "I'm Rebecca Arlayne."
"I'm Hermione Granger."
Rebecca extended a hand and said, "Pleased to meet you." It was true.
Hermione watched as this 'Rebecca' extended her hand. She didn't know whether she should shake it with her own, or turn away. Rebecca seemed intelligent enough, so wouldn't make a bad partner; but Hermione didn't know if this girl was faking politeness, or if it was real.
Hermione had been thinking ahead her entire life, and yet when it came to meeting people, she never knew what to think. Taking a chance, she shook Rebecca's hand, saying, "Pleased to meet you too."
Rebecca smiled, and sat down at the desk next to her as Professor Flitwick climbed up his pile of books in order to be capable of seeing his whole class. He addressed the class to let them know that this session of Charms was starting.
The very first thing he had them do was open their books to page one. Now, page one teaches you how to use your wand. Hermione, of course, had already read this book and, looking over to Rebecca, she established that she had read it before as well. 'At least Rebecca reads her books,' thought Hermione.
Professor Flitwick had the class read the page to themselves, and try the hand motion that is perfectly necessary to use when casting a spell. After everyone had gotten used to the movement, the professor taught them a simple spell.
After Charms, Rebecca walked down the halls, toward her next class. Herbology. As soon as she arrived, she began to study in the book called 'One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi'.
The rest of the day went by quite well, and Rebecca had, to her surprise, made a friend. But she was sad that Hermione Granger was in another house.
After dinner (the plates were empty of food, again), Rebecca headed down to her dormitory, and slept in her bed.
