A/N~ I know some of you will be mad at me for what's gonna happen in this chapter and some of the next ones but I'm sorry before hand. I'm adding a BUNCH of new charcters and don't worry I'll keep them straight for you if i can!

I walked inside and showered and changed into a pair of jeans and a tight muggle band t-shirt. I knew the hardest thing I would do today would be to tell my friends all of what had happened today. I was about to go down stairs to ask if I could go to my friend's house tomorrow when Alex appeared at my door. He gave a note and I smiled at him.

"Who's it from?" I asked

"Guess." He said



"I have a boyfriend"


"Harry Potter"


"Yeah. Once Harry killed the Dark Lord he felt like he could finally be attached to someone as more than a friend. We were really close and he decided that he would take that chance on me. If he breaks it off that's him I know it will hurt like hell, I don't think he will though. He might be mad about all this though.

"I see, so you've got to tell them don't you? About us. How do you think they'll take that?"

"Bad since you boys are coming to Hogwarts this year I'm planning on getting resorted with you two. A new start for a new me. And dad was NEVER their favorite teacher. But I guess I did somewhat like dad's class"

"I'm glad about the first part but why get resorted?"

"Because their is NO WAY you two are getting into Griffendor."

"Why not?" He asked a little put out that I thought he couldn't do something.

"Have you seen the way you live, what you treat people like. It's starting to wear off on me. My friends aren't going to be very happy with me." I said with a smile. I ushered him out the door said good night to Austin, Alex, Draco and Blaise who would be staying with us for a few weeks, changed, and went to sleep completely forgetting about the note.


*That was the weirdest dream ever* I thought as I tried to open my eyes

*Do you have to think so early?!?* Alex thought

*OMG NOT A DREAM!* I thought louder

*Ok we're up thanks alot!* The boys thought in unison and though they claimed to be awake I could tell they were both still asleep.

*Sorry boys I thought yesterday was a dream* I thought more queitly.

*It's okay just like do something that you can think quietly while doing!* Austin thought then went back to sleep

*Ok I'll try.* I thought softly as I got up to start getting ready. I took a shower and got dressed to go to Ron's where Harry was staying the intire summer.


Telling Harry was going to be one of the worst parts of this day, but it had to be done. As I got ready to go I could feel the boys starting to become more awake and I knew I had to get out of there before I changed my mind. I walked to the fireplace. I looked back at my desk in my room and saw the note Draco had written for me yesterday. I pocketed the note and walked back to the firplace and cried "The Burrow." I stepped out of the fire and looked around I knew no one would recognise me so I didn't want to be hit with a curse or something right after I got into the house. I knew it was early but I decided to see if anyone was awake. I walked up the stairs to Fred and George's old room (they moved out and started the joke shop they dreamed about for years, when they came of age) I knew Harry was staying in their so I wanted to go there first even though I knew he wouldn't be up yet. I walked to the door knocked slightly, and just walked in. I knew Harry was staying their so I was suprise to find to people in the bed instead of Harry, but when I looked I relized one was Harry and the person beside him was suppose to my best friend forever, Ginny Weasely, but not anymore.



"Wha... What's wrong?" He mumbled still half asleep.

"WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?" Ginny shouted trying to cover herself with the blankets.

"Don't recognise me? Didn't REMEMBER me? Good because your not going to want to my. Name was Hermione but I'm NOT Hermione any more It's Layla Snape and I'm going to be your worse nightmare! Do you understand me Potter!?" I shouted at them and started to walk out the door.

"Hermione! Wait! Please wait! What are you going on about?!? I'm sorry Hermione! Please wait! Harry jumped out of bed yelling as I walked down the hallway

"I'm not Hermione anymore Potter! My name is Layla Snape now, and your going to wish you were never born when I'm done with you! I turned back to yell, glare at him, then walked out of the house slamming the door on my way out and apparted into my room, fell on my bed, and started to cry my eyes out.

"Layla, love come on, let us in please." Austin said

"Just go away, please!" I cried and started sobbing harder.

"Hey let me try guys" Someone whispered outside the room.

"Harry Potter is a total jerk." The door swung open as they said that and my brothers, Blaise, And Draco ran into the room.

"How did your door get a password?" Alex asked

"I don't know!" I cried

"It can happen when someone is going through an extremely emotional time." Draco said

"How did you guess the password?" Austin said

"Lets see I think he's the reason why she's crying?" Draco said

"But she didn't even know it had a password!" Alex said

"Just because you set a password to your doesn't mean you do it on purpose or even know you did it..." Draco said

"Oh well that explains somethings." Blaise said

"Why bother?!? who cares?!? It doesn't matter?!?" I shouted and tried to push them out of my room, but since I'm not the stronest person in the room it didn't work.

"Layla, love it isn't weak to cry." Austin said as he read my thoughts.

"It is when it's about some stupid idiotic... idiot... person." I said still crying

"Layla it's not weak you got your heart broke by Potter obviously, and I'm sorry you had to have your heart broken by anyone that isn't even worth you time." Draco said

"I'm sorry you had to see me like this guys." I said starting to calm down. Knowing they were going to think I was insane.

"It's okay just another thing you have to deal with when you have a sister I guess." My brothers said and came and hugged me. Them being 6'4 and me being a foot shorter made me feel like I was being hugged by two tall people but it was still nice.

"I just noticed your all like what 6'4 or 6'5 right? Your like so much taller than my old friends. That's deffinately a good thing." I said while wiping my eyes

"Yeah we can stand over them and watch them wet themselves when their faced with four pissed off proctective friends, and brothers, Of you of course." Blaise said with a smirk

"Things have changed so much in just two days it's hard to believe. I went from being in the 'Golden Trio' to being a Snape, then to counting Draco Malfoy, and Blaise Zambini as friends. This year is going to be one heck of an adventure and the summer is just begining." I said sniffed and tried to smile.

" You can bet on that!" The four boys yelled at the same time.

"So what do you want to do now." Austin asked

"I'm gonna get in the shower, we can have breakfast together if you want after that." I said and grabbed a towel not feeling sad anymore but angry.

"Yeah sure we need to shower and get dressed to so don't worry about taking too long." Alex said

"Thanks! You guys go get ready! I said then walked into my closet and grabbed some clothes and walked out of the closet and into my bathroom.

I got into the shower and let the water run down my back. This was a good idea, but it could be better. I stepped out of the shower quickly and turned on the only muggle thing I had brought with me besides clothes, my F.M. radio. It was on a hard rock channel and I got back into the shower and started singing along. The first song that came on was Scars by Papa Roach and it was almost done by the time I was ready to get out of the shower. I wrapped myself in a towel and got out of the shower. I got dressed and put on my make up and then dried my hair. It all took alittle under 20 minutes and and by then Paramore -Misery Business, Greenday -Give Me Novicane, Bullet For My Valintine -Tears Don't Fall, God Forbid - Living Nightmare, and Bullet For My Valentine - Cries In Vain had come on. They were some of my favorite songs so I sang along and I didn't care if anyone heard.

*What have you been listening to for the past half hour? I like it.* Austin thought.

*Just some songs on a muggle network. why?* I thought back.

*Because everyone wanted to know they like them too!* Alex thought.

*Really?!? Those are my favorite songs! I was so suprised they all came on one after another. Someone had to know I've been having a bad day!* I thought with a laugh.

*Are you ready?*Austin thought.

*Yeah I'll be there in a minute* I thought back.

*Don't worry we are waiting in your room. We wanted to hear the music better.* He thought.

*Okay then I'm coming!* I thought then walked into my room to be greeted by my brothers and my two new best friends all with wet hair.

"Did you all get in at the same time?" I asked while trying not to look grossed out.

"No! We just all went to a different room!" Draco said and then picked me up like I was a little kid and threw me over his shoulder.

"What are you doing?!?" I screeched as he started walking down the hall.

"You don't know where the kitchen is, so why should I let you walk there?" Draco said with a laugh.

"Put me down!" I yelled while beating on his back which wasn't getting me anywhere.

"I will... when we get to the kitchen!" Draco said and got a few laughs from the rest of the boys.

"This isn't funny! Come on! Put me down! I'll be your bestfriend?" I pleaded to no avail.

"We're almost there don't worry and admit it you love how I smell!" Draco teased. Though he wasn't far off. He did smell very good.

"Fine! But when we get to the kitchen your so dead!" I said with a sigh.

"Don't worry Draco we'll make sure she plays nice." *You wouldn't want them to know you've been afraid of heights since forever would you?* Alex said and thought with a sick smirk

"You wouldn't!" I yelled.

"He would." Austin said while shaking his head.

"And I guess I get no help from Blaise?" I asked.

"None!" Blaise said with a laugh, so I decided to give up.

"You gave up?" Draco said when I finally stopped hitting him in the back.

"Why fight a fight I can't win. If I had my wand you'd be in trouble but it's in my room so I can't do anything" I said sighing again and they walked on.

"We're here!" Austin yelled.

Draco finally put me down I looked at the kitchen. There was alot of house elves running around the huge kitchen which I was told was in the dead center of the house. It was your standard kitchen, but 3 times bigger and with elves going every where. If I hadn't seen the other rooms in the manor I would have been impressed. I was, but the size of the kitchen was smaller than my room, but was still as big as a small house. The boys and I all sat down at a table and the elves all bowed and curtsied as we walked by. They were all in a uniform but still not properly dressed of course, because you can't give them real clothes. 

We sat down and plates with food were sat in front of you the house elf that sat my down I thanked and the boys looked at me weird but started eating anyways. I started eating and after I had only finished half of my plate I was full. I grabbed my plate and got up to wash it off and one of the elves came up and took it from me. I sat back down and the boys gave me more weird looks. I brushed it off and decided to go to the library. I thought it to my brothers and they told Blaise and Draco. I walked to the library, grabbed the first book that was on the shelf, and sat down to read until the boys decided to come and find me after breakfast. I was reading like that when they found me an hour later.

"Our school letters came." Austin said

"Yeah and a letter from Professor Dumbledoor for you. Why is he writing to you anyways?" Draco said.

"Oh it must be about the letter I sent him. I hope he said yes." I said

"Me too."Alex and Ausin said at the same time.

"Guess who was made Head Boy!" Blaise said

"Who you?" I said

"No! Draco did!" Blaise said

"That's great! Now are you going to give me my letters now or just stand there?" I said and Austin handed me my letters and I ripped the one from Dumbledoor open and read it.

"YES! YES! YES! I get to get resorted! YES!" I shouted while jumping up and down.

"That's great Layla now we can all be in the same house!" Blaise said

"That's if we get sorted into Slytherin." Austin said

"Austin we're so going to Slytherin cause that's the house we are meant to be in I mean your a Snape, a pureblood, and your no blood traitor you'll make it into Slytherin" Alex said and while he was talking I was opening my other letter and inside was a new badge.

"OH MY GOD! I'M HEAD GIRL" I shouted and all the boys turned to me.

"That's great, but doesn't that mean you won't live with us?" Ausin said

"No it says in my letter that each head can bring one to three people with them to live with them" Draco said

"That's perfect I can bring my brothers and you can bring Blaise and... your girlfriend?" I said

"I don't have a girlfriend so just Blaise will be on my list." Draco said.

"Okay... well we can go get our stuff for school today so we won't have to do it later." Ausin said

"Yeah Austin and I are going to need clothes." Alex said

"Yeah me too. Going from a size 5 to a size 0 isn't what I think of as a good thing." I said and Blasie and Draco looked at me and laughed.

"What?!?" I yelled

"Most girls would think that was a good thing." Draco said when he could breathe again.

"Yeah! But you thinking it's a bad thing is too funny!" Blaise said laughing again.

"Yeah?!? None of my clothes fit right anymore! I've had to shrink them ALOT just for them to stay up! So yes I do not think it was a good thing!" I fumed.

"Well then lets go shopping." Blaise said

"Yeah we can make you look less like a book worm and more like a person!" Austin said

"Well then what are we waiting for lets go!" I yelled then we apparated to Diagon Alley.

I looked around at all the shops. I noticed some of them had changed since last year. We got our money from the bank, since I had worked every summer since the begging of my years at Hogwarts except for this one, I had plenty of money to spend. The boys were nice enough to let me get my money before telling me that I wasn't allowed to use a cent of it, if they had anything to say about it. And no matter how hard I argued that I could pay for my things, when it came down to it they were stronger, taller, and bigger than me, so they kinda had the final say so today. 

I got all my stuff for school and clothes, so while the boys were looking at quittitch stuff I snuck away long enough to by bras and underwear because I needed new ones after my waist shrinking and my top-half having a growth spurt over night. I had just paid for them and walked out of the store when I heard some very protective people yelling my name.

"I'm over here stop yelling!" I shouted back.

"Next time don't just walk off like that and stop thinking all of the sudden we had NO IDEA where you had went!" Austin said now angry that he knew I was safe.

"Hermione!" An all to familiar voice yelled at me.

"What do you want weasely?" I growled.

"Look Harry's really sorry and tore-up about what happened. I think you should give him a second chance!" He pleaded.

"Look weasle, you and potty had your chance. He blew it when he cheated on me twiice. I'm being resorted and I will not be going to Griffendor if you catch my drift. So you and your presious pothead can apoligze all you want. I won't be listening. I told potty he made his choice so now he can stick it to her, in her, or whatever the hell he wants to do with that part of his body. Got it." I growled at him and he looked like he was gong to be sick. It seemed like he didn't know Potter and Weaslette yet and I was so happy to have told him. Draco walked up to me and looped his arm around my waist.

"Ready to go Layla?" He asked seeing that I was getting more ticked.

"Yes Draco, I'm ready." I said and instead of removing his arm from my waist like I normally would have to walk away. I leaned closer to him before we started to walk. I looked back to see a very red Weasle and was more happy by the second. As soon as we got around the corner, Draco and I busted out laughing.

"Did you see his face!?" He laughed holding his stomach.

"Yeah, but you should have seen what he was wearing. It was a patch work cloak... of shame... Burn!" I laughed back and we started walking again.

"You're really different now aren't you?" He said when we finally calmed down.

"Yeah. I don't know why, but I feel as like I should have acted like this all my life." I said looking away.

"That's because this is how you would have acted if you didn't have to be sent away." He said softly.

"Maybe." I said

"So do you think you will follow all the traditions that come with being a pureblood?" He asked me quietly. Now we were sitting on a bench and all of our things were sent back to the manor.

"Yeah I will even though I only know a couple." I said just as quietly.

"Want to learn one that could change your life?" He asked.

"Yeah. Like what?" I said back

"Every pureblood at birth if well connected is promised by blood to be married, and your family is very well connnected." He said solemly.

"So that means I was promised to someone and no one has told me?!?" I almost shouted but stopped myself before I did.

"Yes, but don't worry I know the guy he's very nice, when he wants to be." He said with a smirk.

"Who..." I went to say, but my brothers showed up to say that it was time to go home. We apparted to the manor and I went to talk to my father.
