Author's Note: Hi! This is my first story, so please don't hate me! Without further ado, the first chapter!

Chapter 1

The Sorting Hat was never wrong. I had had dreams of being in Slytherin, holding the House Cup from the time of my finding out about Wizardry and Hogwarts. So when the Sorting Hat called out, "Slytherin!" I was delighted. I held my head up high, smiled, and sat down at the Slytherin table.

"Hi, I'm Tom. Tom Riddle," a boy told me, and extended his hand. I held out my hand and said, "Bellatrix Lestrange." He smiled and we waited for the feast to begin. When it did, we both ate hungrily. The train ride was exhausting, and sweets only last so long. At the table, I glared at my cousin, Sirius, in Gryffindor.

The Head Boy and Head Girl led all Slytherins away. We were shown how to get in and out of our dungeon dormitories. We were shown the Common Room, and our own gender dormitories. I didn't really care about this; I wanted to get to Defense against the Dark Arts. I could tell that everyone else was waiting for that class, too.

I bade Tom good-night, and left for the girl's dormitories. I couldn't wait for my little sister, Narcissa to come to Hogwarts. In due time, in due time. But I hate waiting. I'm a bit more impulsive. Still, I must wait.

The next morning, I got up, and was ready to go. Tom and I walked to the Great Hall, much to the irritation of the Head Boy and Girl. They wanted everyone to stick with them, but who cares? Not us. In fact, we ran down the halls, and soon enough, Peeves joined us. It was the time of our lives.

Until, Minerva McGonagall caught us. "What do you think you two are doing?" she asked, lips pursed. I stepped up and said, "It's only our first day of our First Year." She angrily said, "Go."

Tom and I ran away, laughing our heads off. "How did you do that?" Tom asked. I just shrugged and continued laughing. Yup, Hogwarts was off to a good start.
