As soon as we stepped foot off of the Hogwarts Express, the same man who had broken up the fight in the hallway, who I had learned was Professor Snape, walked up to us.

"There you are Draco."

Then he turned his head to me.

"Miss Porter I presume?"

I nodded.

"Yes sir."

He smiled at the both of us,and held out a roll of parchment.

"This is for you."

Draco took it and Snape walked away. He opened the parchment and I stood on my tip toes to read over his shoulder.

" Dear Mr. Malfoy and Miss Porter, welcome to Hogwarts for another exciting year. I hope your train ride was pleasant. As soon as you get this note, please report to my office, we have some things to discuss. Thank you, Dumbledore. p.s. I enjoy Chocolate Frogs.

"Are we in trouble?" I asked him

" You didn't tell any one about last week, did you?" he asked franticly

" No! Did you?"

He didn't answer right away, and I glared at him.

" You did! Who did you tell?" I demanded, smacking his arm.

" no one! Just Crabbe and Goyle!"

I rolled my eyes at him.

" Well, we'll deal with that after, but for now, I'm sure that's not what Dumbledore wants to talk to us about... at least I hope not."

he agreed with me

" Let's just get this over with." grabbing my hand, he led me down many hallways and staircases, until we stopped infront of a large statue.

"Why have we stopped?" Draco smiled.

"You'll see" He turned toward the statue, "Chocolate Frogs."

Suddenly a staircase arose from the floor.

" What is this?"

"Dumbledore's office."

He grabbed my hand again and the two of us walked up the stairs. We stopped at the door and Draco knocked. The door swong open and we walked inside. Dumbledore was seated behind a large mahogany desk, when he saw us, he stood up and smiled.

"Ah, you got my note, I see."

"Yes sir ." Draco said. Dumbledore looked at me and smiled.

"And this is the Miss Porter I've heard so much about."

I blushed at the thought of Lucious and Narcissa gushing over me.

"Yes, it is."

"Well, it is very nice to finally meet you. Please have a seat.

Draco and I sat in the leather chairs on either side of the desk.

"So, I understand that the two of you are engaged to be married, congratulations."

" Thank you."

I said. He looks down at my hand

" But no ring?"

"oh..." I turned to look at Draco.

"You see, Headmaster, our parents belive that we should keep our engagement a secret for a while, at least until graduation."

"Oh, I see, not another word from me." he said and he winked.

"Thank you sir." Draco said.

Dumbledore stood up and walked across the room, picking up an old leather hat and walked up to me.

"Your father requested a private sorting." he explained to Draco.

"But, I thought that Natalee was to be placed in Slytherin house with me!"

"Yes, well, your parents and I decided that she should be sorted, just to see what house she truly belongs in."

I could tell by the way Draco clenched and unclenched his jaw, that he wasn't pleased about this.

" But what if she's placed in Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw? Or even worse... Gryffindor!?"

I began to panic, what if Draco's right, what if I am placed in Gryffindor? What would happen to our relationship? Dumbledore's laugh brought me out of my thoughts.

" Not to worry Mr. Malfoy, I am certain she is destained for Slytherin."

"She better be!" Draco mumbled under his breath.

Dumbledore placed the hat on my head and it came alive.

" Ah! Natalee Porter! Welcome to Hogwarts! You know, I sorted your parents they- "

"Oh get on with it!" Draco said loudly.

"Well, another time perhaps. Now, let me see, you have wonderful potential and the capacity to do great things. Perfect qualitys for Gryffindor..."

"What? Gryffindor?" Draco shouted, jumping out of his chair.

"Mr. Malfoy, another outburst from you and I will be forced to send you out into the hall! Now please take your seat, the sorting hat has not yet made it's decision."

Draco grumbled and he sat back down. Dumbledore turned back to the sorting hat.

"Please continue."

"Yes, as I was saying, you could go far in Gryffindor. But what is this I see? A secret engagement? Oh, this changes things entirely. Due to your future plans with Mr.Malfoy, I think you will be best served in... Slytherin!"

Draco jumped up and pumped his fist in the air. "YES!"

I smiled and let out a breath, only just realizing that I was holding it in. Dumbledore removed the sorting hat and placed it on the shelf.

"Well, now that were done here, you two can go."

"Thank you sir! " I grabbed Draco's hand and pulled him out the door.
