"Matilda,Matilda"said a voice. Somebody was shaking my bed.
"WAKE UP" said voice I now recognize.
"Bree, like me sleep" I muttered and rolled over.
"Fine be late to your first day at the school" Bree skipped away from my bed. I open my eyes and sat up. I was going to Hogwarts. I quickly took a shower, and got changed. I made sure I had everything aka clothes, books, quills and such in the truck. I put Hogwarts history, my notebook that had everything about Harry Potter in it, also favorite things. I tap my wand on the truck and it shrank to lego size and put it in my pocket.
I ran down stairs to the dinning room. There was a plate for me, the others weren't up yet.
Mrs. Summers would take me to Platform 9 3/4, at least show me. She couldn't go in with me, which made me sad but I think I was going to be okay. I read the books and watched the movies. I could do this.. I could stop Voldemort from coming back. I had to get to the room of requirement.
Once we to King Cross, she had a call. I told her to leave and that I would be fine.
It took me while but finally found it but I was kind of nervous and scared. This still had to be dream right? A long one or something like that. What if I wasn't magical? I nervous of course but that's when I heard a voice.
"— packed with Muggles, of course —" muttered a voice. I turn around to see Mrs. Weasley and her family coming towards me I nervously hide, decided to be like a muggleborn even through I knew how to get on the platform but still in way following the books.
Ron had scabbers, so Wormtail was here and I felt uncomfortable with that but
"Now, what's the platform number?" said Mrs. Weasley asked her childern. I always wondered why she did that. Maybe she was use it or something.
"Nine and three-quarters!" piped a small girl, also red-headed, who was holding her hand, "Mom, can't I go…"
I grinned to myself that had to be Ginny.
"You're not old enough, Ginny, now be quiet. All right, Percy, you go first."
Percy marched up to platform 9 3/4 and basically went through the wall. I was thankful I didn't blink because I would of missed it. Even muggles didn't seem to notice. Did I mention I love magic?
"Fred, you next," Mrs. Weasley said and I knew what was next. I even could quote it but as I saw Fred and George I felt really sad as I remembered what happen to them. But I could stop this, I knew I could.
"I'm not Fred, I'm George," said the boy. "Honestly, woman, you call yourself our mother?"
I laughed quietly, I always liked the twins.
"Sorry, George, dear."
"Only joking, I am Fred," said the boy, and off he went.
Poor Mrs. Weasley, dealing with them, I thought as they disappeared. I decided to make my appearance.
"Excuse me," I said quietly turn to Mrs. Weasley.
"Hello, dear," she said. "First time at Hogwarts? Ron's new, too."
I nodded pretending to more nervous than I was. Ron looked just like the young Rupert Grint.
"Um I was wondering how do you get"
"On to the Platform" smiled Mrs. Weasley as she knew what I was going to saw. I nodded again, realizing it was almost scary how I could quote the books.
"Not to worry," she said. "All you have to do is walk straight at the barrier between platforms nine and ten. Don't stop and don't be scared you'll crash into it, that's very important. Best do it at a bit of a run if you're nervous. Go on, go now before Ron."
"Good Luck" said Ginny, and I smiled at her. I did what Harry did in books/movies and ran when I open my eyes I was standing in front of me was A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts' Express, eleven o'clock. I looked behind me and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
I grinned and decided to go find a place to sit. I unshrunk my trunk which I realize I should done that once I found a empty compartment. Thankful my trunk had wheels so it wasn't that hard. I passed Lee Gordon who was showing everyone a spider and I shuddered. I hated spiders just like Ron.
I found on near the end of the train. I tired key word tired to move the truck but didn't work. I almost dropped it on my foot but just like my luck the Weasley twins just like in the book helped Harry but in this case me with like they did with Harry in the books/movies they saw my scar.
I quietly said goodbye and sat down in the empty compartment I sat in the same one Harry did because I could see the Weasley's talking. Ginny wanted to meet me again, I guess she was a fan or something. I had to get use to that, but I'm not one for attention.
It wasn't long before Harry found my compartment.
The door of the compartment slid open and the youngest redheaded boy aka Ron came in.
"Anyone sitting there?" he asked, pointing at the seat opposite Harry. "Everywhere else is full."
We both nodded and Ron sat down. He said hi to Harry, there were already friends I guess.
"Are you really ,Matilda Collins" asked Ron out of the blue, and I nodded showing him the scar on my forehead and he looked at me wide eyed.
"Wicked" he said, and really that was that. The Trolley came by and we got some candy splitting it between all of us.
Ron pulled out Scabbers his rat. My eyes went wide, Wormtale how did the others no realize? I had to tell Harry's parents.
Ron was about to show us the spell when Hermione walk in.
"Has anyone seen a toad? Neville's lost one," she asked, she was already in her Hogwarts robes. She was a little bossy in the beginning but she had a thirst to prove that even through shes muggle-born shes still magical.
That's when she saw the wand in his hand.
"Oh, are you doing magic? Let's see it, then." Hermione said forgetting about the toad. Poor Neville.
She sat down. Ron looked taken aback.
"Er — all right."
He cleared his throat.
"Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow, Turn this stupid, fat rat yellow."
Poor Ron, The twins did that to prank him and it wouldn't work on Wormtail anyways because he was human not a rat. The spell didn't work at all and Ron was disappointed.
"Are you sure that's a real spell?" said the girl. "Well, it's not very good, is it?
"I've tried a few simple spells just for practice and it's all worked for me. Nobody in my family's magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it's the very best school of witchcraft there is, I've heard — I've learned all our course books by heart of course, I just hope it will be enough — I'm Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?"
Ron and Harry shared a look thinking she was a know it all. She was probably nervous or something.
"I'm Ron Weasley," Ron muttered.
"Harry Potter," said Harry.
"Matilda Collins"I said kindly. Hermione was one of my favorite characters in the books besides Neville and Luna.
"Are you really"asked Hermione wide eyed. I nodded and looked down.
"I know all about you, of course — I got a few extra books, for background reading, and you're in Modern Magical History and The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and Great Wizarding Events of the Twentieth Century." she kept on.
"Really" I asked making my voice sound nervous even through I knew it was true.
She nodded than stood up "Anyway, we'd better go and look for Neville's toad. You three had better change, you know, I expect we'll be there soon." said Hermione.
"Er Wait Hermione can you show me to the bathrooms so I can change" I asked her and she nodded. I gave wave to the boys and Hermione showed me the way.
Soon as I changed to my Hogwarts robs I headed back but bumped into Malfoy which wasn't nice really.
"Watch it" he hissed. Might as well be a snake I thought rolling my eyes.
Soon We arrived at Hogsmeade village, years 2 through 7th would take carriages to Hogwarts while the 1st take the boats to Hogwarts.
Me, Hermione, Harry and Ron got to the boat after meeting Hagrid . Who was really tall, and very nice.
As soon as we saw Hogwarts we all gasped. Me loudly because I couldn't believe I was here. I almost wanted to cry happy tears but decided not too.
It was only one word to describe Hogwarts; magical.
We got out of the boats as soon as we hit land. We followed Hagrid to the Doors into Hogwarts. After Neville found his Toad, and we made sure everyone was alright, Hagrid knocked on the door
