Ginny returned inside to find Lily exactly where she was when she had left but now she was wearing part of her breakfast. Lily’s face lit up; she was getting excited about today’s trip to the zoo. After she finished her last piece of bacon she said: “Mummy, I’m going to go upstairs to change into my animal print dress! When are you going to phone over to Aunt Hermione about dropping off Hugo?? I want to be the first ones at the zoo today!” “You run along, I’ll call and have her bring him by on her way to Ministry for work!” “Okay Mummy,” said Lily and off she went, skipping. Chapter III Back at the castle, Albus was devastated. Being a Weasley, Rose was automatically sorted into Gryffindor. Albus expected the same fate given his Gryffindor father, mother, grandfather and grandmother before him. He couldn’t understand why the Sorting Hat hadn’t taken his preference into consideration. Why did his Dad make him think that he had a choice? After the welcome feast, all of the first years went to their house common rooms, chattering excitedly. Albus was the least excited.

I think that you’ll do great as a Slytherin, though. Reputations of houses don’t reflect on the people in them. It is all about what you make of the experience and you just have to make the most of it. You are ambitious, and strong, and a really great leader - the Sorting Hat must have picked up on that. Al, it doesn’t matter that I’m in Gryffindor and you’re in Slytherin. It makes no difference at all.” “Maybe… sniff …not to you… sniff, ” cried Albus as he looked up from the ground. Tears were rolling down his face. “Dad and Mum are going to be so disappointed.” “No, they won’t Al!” James said, putting his arms tight around his younger brother. “Dad and Mum both told you that they don’t care where you end up and they meant that! They love you, and they would only be disappointed that you’re so sad about this.” “I’m just going to go to my room James. I know you probably don’t want to be taking care of me right now, you want to be in the Gryffindor common room...” “Don’t be stupid, Al. Be safe. I’ll see you tomorrow, okay?” James and Albus went their separate ways. Albus made his way down the curved wooden steps as he entered into the green, dimly lit common room. He sat on the green leather couches and tried to look happy. A skinny boy with white blonde hair was talking to everyone he saw and introduced himself to them too.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
