After dinner, the students all made their was to their different common rooms.
"That was awesome!" Samantha declared as the walked down the hallway. James nodded in agreement.
"Yeah, it was great." Albus said. He looked over at Andrea, who was playing with the hem of her robe. "You okay?" Albus whispered to her. She nodded quickly then shrugged.
"I don't know what happened..." She said quietly.
"I say it's the hat." Peter piped in. "I mean, how could it really be you? Unless of course, you have multiple personalities..." He added. Albus glared at him as they walked.
"Don't worry about it." Samantha said reassuringly. "You're with us, and we're the coolest kids in school." She said with a smile. Peter, Andrea, Derek and Holly all raised an eyebrow.
"Well, we are." James said. Albus sighed and rolled his eyes.
"Who are your parents?" Albus asked Holly and Derek.
"Luna and Seamus Finnagan." Holly replied quickly.
"Hey! Our mum and dad know your mum and dad!" Albus exclaimed happily. He turned to Andrea.
"My mum and dad are Kelly and Joseph Fordison." She said. They turned to Peter who made himself even smaller then he already was.
"My mom and dad are-why do you guys say 'mum'?" Samantha cut in. James rolled his eyes.
"Here we go again..." He whispered. Samantha was about to say something back when they got to the common room.
"Alright, listen up, everyone!" The Prefect that the front of the crowd of kids called. "This years password is 'Dumbledore's Army'." He finished then turned to the door and said the password. The portrait opened and revealed a beautiful common room.
"Whoa." Holly breathed as they walked in.
"Everyone, especially first years, welcome to your new home for the school year." The Prefect said happily.
"I wanna go get something from my bag." Samantha said. She walked over to the staircase leading to the girls room and began climbing up it. Suddenly, the stairs flattened underneath her and she slid back down to the floor. Samantha stared at the stairs in bewilderment then looked back to the group. James shrugged.
"Maybe the stairs are going too..." Peter suggested. Holly went over to the stairs as they stood on the first step then began walking up them.
"They work for me..." She said slowly. Just then, the common room door opened and Professor Longbottom walked in.
"Yo, Professor Longbottom," Samantha yelled. Neville looked over at her and smiled.
"Yes, Samantha?" He said as he walked over to her.
"Wassup with the stairs?" She asked, pointing to them. Neville watched as Samantha tried to go up, then slid back down as the stairs flattened again. He watched as Holly went up and they worked perfectly fine.
"I'm not sure..." Neville said, reaching into a pocket on his robe. He pulled out a piece of paper and scanned over it. "Oh dear..." He said quietly.
"What?" Samantha asked, sounding worried.
"Well, it seems that your things aren't going to be up there..." Neville said slowly. Samantha raised an eyebrow at him. "They're going to be in a boys room..." He finished quietly.
"WHAT?!?" Samantha yelled. Everyone in the common room turned to look.
"Well, it seems that you were put down as 'Sam', not 'Samantha', so the intern doing the registration thought that you were a...boy." Neville replied quietly. Samantha stared at him with her mouth hanging open. James patted her on the back.
"Well, maybe we'll be in the same room..." He said, trying to help.
"That's what I'm afraid of." Samantha replied, removing his hand from her back. James nodded then took a step back.
"Well, this should be fun! Bye!" Neville said, quickly ducking into the crowd of students. Samantha glared after him as she spoke.
"I hate interns."
