(AN: Hello Reader! This is one of my first fan fictions and I'm new to writing, so please bare with me if it's not that good at first. I'm currently re-reading the books. So if I don't get something exactly correct, then I apologize in advance. Anyways....enjoy the story!)
"Primrose Scott get up right now, it's September first we are going to miss the train if you don't get up this instant!" Poe Scott, the twin brother of Primrose called from behind her bedroom door. Primrose looked at the clock on her nightstand to see that it was 9:01 in the morning, meaning she had less than two hours to get dressed, eat breakfast, take an hour long drive to King's Cross Station, and get on the Hogwarts Express.
"Shit." Primrose cursed jumping out of bed. She ran to her closet to get a pair of jeans, a pastel yellow button down shirt, socks and a pair of black and white checkered VANS.
Once Primrose had gotten dressed, it was 9:20. She walked to her vanity to do her hair and makeup. Today she decided to keep it simple so she left her dark brown hair down and only applied lipstick, mascara and eyeshadow. Primrose ran down the stairs to the first floor of her three story home but, got there quicker than she expected as she tripped on the second step and slid down the rest of the way. She picked herself up and walked into the kitchen where there were still boxes from moving in and made herself a waffle.
When her waffle was done she quickly ate it and got her trunks from her bedroom. Along with her trunks she packed a bag for the train so she didn't get bored. Inside the bag was a cassette tape with all of her favorite songs, her Sony Walkman, headphones, her polaroid camera, and IT by Stephen King. She grabbed her bag and trunks and headed back downstairs.
"Mum, I'm ready!" Primrose called from the living room.
"Okay Prim get your brother and put your things in the trunk." said Mrs Scott.
Primrose walked to her brother's room where he was making sure he had everything he needed in his bag for the train.
"Are you ready?" she asked.
"Yeah, is this good?" he asked gesturing to his outfit. Poe was wearing a similar outfit to Primrose's except his shirt was green and he was wearing leather boots.
"You look fine, now come on we don't want to miss the train on our first year."
Primrose walked out, put her trunks in the car and got in the passenger seat. She took out her Walkman, plugged in her headphones and waited for her mum as she listened to the music. Poe entered the car and got in the seat behind Primrose. When their mum got in the car, the hour long ride felt as though it was only a few minutes.
Soon enough, they got out of the car and went to Platform 9 3/4, they said their tearful goodbyes and got onto the train just before it had left the station.
Poe and Primrose searched for a compartment but had no luck, most were either full or had the curtains drawn. They got to the fifteenth compartment to find a single boy in there. The boy in there had platinum blond hair and had eyes that were as silver as moonlight. Primrose asked the boy if he would mind if her and Poe could sit with him.
"Not at all. Is this your first year at Hogwarts?" he said.
"Yes it is. I'm Prim Scott, Prim short for Primrose." she said sticking out her hand.
"And I'm Draco Malfoy." said Draco shaking Prims hand. "And you are?" he asked Poe.
"Poe Scott, I'm her twin brother." Draco shook Poe's hand.
The three sat in an awkward silence for a few moments and Prim was the one to break it. She started singing 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go' by The Clash. And Draco started singing along."Darling, you gotta let me know. Should I stay or should I go? If you say that you are mine, I'll be here 'till the end of time. So you gotta let me know. Should I stay or should I go?"
And then Poe joined them for the second verse,"It's always tease, tease, tease. You're happy when I'm on my knees. One day it's fine and next it's black. So if you want me off your back. Well, come on and let me know. Should I stay or should I go?"
When the three finished all of the verses of the song they started laughing. Primrose took out her Walkman and put in her cassette tape. She pressed play and the song that started playing was ’Don't Stop Believing’ by Journey. ”Just a small-town girl, living in a lonely world. She took the midnight train going anywhere. Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit. He took the midnight train going anywhere. A singer in a smoky room, a smell of wine and cheap perfume. For a smile they can share the night, it goes on, and on, and on, and on.”
A girl with bushy brown hair and big brown eyes then came into the compartment, ” I'm sorry to interrupt, but has anyone seen a toad? A boy named Neville lost his.”
”No, but I can help you if you'd like.” said Prim getting up from her seat and exiting the compartment.
”Thank you, I'm Hermione Granger.”
”I'm Primrose Scott, but some call me Prim for short.” she said shaking Hermione's hand.
"Nice to meet you Primrose. Alright, I checked all of the compartments down there so, the ones we need to check are the ones up front." said Hermione walking forward.
"Wait." said Prim.
"What is it?" Hermione asked. Primrose crawled underneath one of the benches in the next empty compartment and came out with a small toad in her hands.
"Found it." she said.
"Wow, not even five minutes after you offered help and you found him. I'll go bring that back to Neville, unless you want to come with me." said Hermione looking Prim in the eyes.
"I'll go with you. So Hermione, what do you like to do in your spare time?" Prim asked as the two started walking.
"I love to read, draw, and talk with friends, that is if I find any. I'm new to the wizarding world, both of my parents are muggles. What about you?"
"I like to make jewelry, love to read, design clothes, take pictures and socialize, even though I can be an introvert at times. And Hermione, I'm sure you'll make friends you seem like a really nice person."
"Thank you Prim. Oh, we're here Neville is in this next cart." said Hermine knocking on the door to Neville's compartment. He opened the door and his face lit up when he saw his toad Trevor in Prim's hands.
"Trevor!" he exclaimed,"Thank you for finding him Hermione and..."
"Primrose, Primrose Scott." said Prim shaking his hand.
"Nice to meet you. I'll see you two later." he said and the girls left the compartment. Prim and Hermione went their own ways as Hermione said that she was going to another compartment with someone named Harry.
Prim returned to the compartment to find Draco and Poe dancing to one of Prim's favourite songs,'Material Girl' by Madonna. She quickly took out her camera and got a picture of the two dancing before they noticed she was back. She sat down with a smile on her face as the film came out of the camera and the picture appeared, Prim quickly put it in her bag so they wouldn't know that she took a picture.
"Hello Dancing Kings. I see you two have had fun while I was gone, what did I miss?"
"Nothing much, we basically just danced the entire time you were gone." said Poe.
"So Draco what do you like to?" asked Prim.
"I like to read, hang out with friends and listen to music. What about you?"
"I like to make jewelry, love to read, design clothes, take pictures, socialize, and listen to music as well."
"I thought you were an introvert." said Poe
"I am, I only like to socialize with people I want to talk to."
And the three just talked and talked for the rest of the ride getting to know each other. The Hogwarts Express pulled into Hogsmeade Station and all of the first years got into a boat that pulled them toward the castle. Primrose, Poe and Draco all shared a small boat and stared in awe at the beautiful castle and night sky.
Soon enough, the boat ride was over and the first years were about to be sorted. The groundskeeper at Hogwarts, Hagrid let them into a small corridor and waited until a tall woman wearing emerald green robes and a pointed hat entered.
"Here are the firs' years for ya McGonagall." he said before exiting the corridor.
"Thank you Hagrid. Welcome to Hogwarts," said Professor McGonagall. "The start-of-term banquet will begin momentarily, but before you all take seats in the Great Hall you will be sorted into your Houses. The Sorting is a very important ceremony because, while you are here, your House will be something like your family within Hogwarts. You will have classes with the rest of your house, sleep in your House dormitory, and spend free time in your House common room.
"The four Houses are called Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Each House has its own noble history and has produced outstanding witches and wizards. While you are at Hogwarts, your achievements will gain you House points, while any rule breaking will lose House points. At the end of the school year, the House with the most points will be awarded the House Cup, a great honor.
"Now, in a few minutes the Sorting Ceremony will take place in front of the entire school. I recommend that you try to make yourselves look presentable before you are sorted into your House." then she left the corridor and walked into the Great Hall.
Three minutes later she said that the first years could come in. They all walked in and got in line and McGonagall explained how the ceremony will work.
"When I call your name, you will come forth and I shall place the sorting hat on your head. The sorting hat will choose which House it believes you belong in based off of your personality and the traits you value. Now, let us begin. Hannah Abbott."
A girl with long blonde hair came forward and sat on the stool, McGonagall placed the hat on her head and it yelled,"HUFFLEPUFF!!!"
McGonagall called out a few more names until she got to Hermione, she sat down on the stool and the sorting hat said," Hmm well, you are extremely smart, creative, brave, you have nerve. I know where to put you now, you belong in...GRYFFINDOR!!!!"
"Draco Malfoy." McGonagall called.
Draco sat down on the stool and before the hat even touched his head it said,"SLYTHERIN!!!"
A bunch of murmurs and whispers entered the room. He sat down and the sorting hat began its process," Not a bad mind, you have a bit of ambition, you are brave and daring," Harry had said something to the sorting hat however it was inaudible. "Not Slytherin eh, well looks like if it ain't Slytherin better be GRYFFINDOR!!!"
Poe walked up and the hat was placed on his head, "Well young lad, you are loyal, you have wit, however ambition and cunning are the two traits that stick out the most.Better be... SLYTHERIN!!!"
Prim walked up and sat down, the hat was placed on her head and it began speaking," You are creative no doubt about that, intelligent, resourceful, ambitious,cunning like your brother, but I also see a hint of bravery." the sorting hat stopped speaking for a minute or two. Primrose thought that she would be a hat stall, when it takes someone more than three minutes to be sorted. But then the hat started speaking again,"I think, no, I know where to put you now. You belong with the people of emerald green and silver in SLYTHERIN!!!" Prim got up and sat down in between Draco and Poe.
They called the rest of the names and Professor Dumbledore stood up to make an announcement."Welcome back for another year at Hogwarts, or if this your first year welcome I'm Professor Dumbledore. And I have a few announcements to make. The Forbidden Forest hence its name is strictly forbidden. Like the Forbidden Forest, the west corridor on the third floor is out of bounds to those who don't want to die a painful death. That is all, and let us begin the start-of-term banquet."
Just after he had said this plates upon plates of food appeared on every table. Primrose grabbed the spoon in the mac n' cheese bowl but Draco grabbed it at the same time as Primrose and then they just stared into each other's eyes. Their hands touched for a good twenty seconds and in those twenty seconds Poe took the camera from Prim's bag and took a picture. He placed the camera back in her bag and Prim took her hand off of the spoon and gave it to Draco. When he was done using it he passed the spoon to Primrose.
For the rest of the banquet Draco, Primrose and Poe talked, ate and laughed. When the banquet was over the Slytherin Prefect, Amanda showed all of the first years how to get to the Slytherin common room. And before they were sent to their dorms to go to sleep she demonstrated how to tie a tie. When she was finished with her demonstration, she announced that there are no classes until Wednesday so that people could settle in and get to know everyone they will be sharing a common room with for the next seven years.
Prim told Poe and Draco goodnight and headed up the right side of stairs, into her dorm, changed into her pj's and fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.
