â€œOkay, Lils, donâ€™t kill me!â€ I said and she laughed but let go.
â€œSorry. Well, itâ€™s not as if I could kill you, even if I wanted to!â€ she said, still laughing.
We laughed and chatted, while eating the feast. Well, Lily was eating more than me. I didnâ€™t really like most of it. The meat was way too artificial for me and the rest was just gross. Lily noticed this too. She whispered,
â€œCraving something fresher? Are you going out tonight?â€ she asked.
â€œDuh!â€ I answered, â€œBut can we not talk about this in the most jam packed place in the entire school.â€
â€œOops, sorry,â€ she said and went back to eating.
I continued to play around with my food and pretend to eat it. I only put a very small amount on my plate so it looked like Iâ€™d eaten quite a bit anyway. Well thatâ€™s what I thought anyway, but apparently, I wasnâ€™t convincing enough because a girl, sitting opposite me said,
â€œIs the food here not good enough for pure-bloods like you?â€ She asked
â€œN-n-no,â€ I stuttered, â€œItâ€™s just that Iâ€™m not that hungry.â€
She laughed, â€œJeez, I was joking.â€ I sighed with relief. â€œIâ€™m Vikki Shinichi,â€ She held out her hand.
â€œSam White,â€ I said as I shook her hand, â€œand this is Lily Evans, â€œ I added nodding to Lily.
â€œHey,â€ Lily greeted and shook Vikkiâ€™s hand too.
Then after we had finished eating (well, apart from me) we followed the Head Boy, Arthur Weasly, up to our dorm. I got the bed next to the biggest window. Lily laughed when she realised why I ran straight for that bed and went for the one on the right of me and Vikki was on the left of me. There were only two other girls in our dorm: one girl called Molly who had long, wavy, ginger hair and another girl called Tara who had shoulder-length black hair. Tara didnâ€™t seem to talk much but, when she thought I wasnâ€™t looking, she would stare at me a lot. It wasnâ€™t a creepy stare, it was like a Healer examining her (or his) patient. It was kind of like she was studying me, trying to get to know me before she decided if she should speak to me. Soon, after I caught her staring for the eleventh time and looked curiously at her, she said,
â€œOh, sorry, Iâ€™m Tara-well you already know that thanks to Molly (Molly had introduced them both). Youâ€™re Samantha.â€
My hand curled into a fist behind my back but I managed to control myself-I mean, it wasnâ€™t like it was her fault that I was cursed with a God-Damn name like Samantha. â€œSam,â€ I said quickly. I glanced over at Lily, who was in a heated discussion with Molly and Vikki over who were the fittest boys there. Sometimes I couldnâ€™t believe her. I mean, Lilyâ€™s just 11 years old, sheâ€™s only been here five minutes and already she was discussing guys she hadnâ€™t even met.
Sometimes itâ€™s hard to believe that weâ€™re best friends being that we are probably as different as two people can be.
But, then again, I am different to most people-nearly everyone.
There are very few like me.
