I hurried through the crowded station struggling to keep up with the aurorâ€™s long strides. He was supposed to be escorting me to the hogwarts express, but Iâ€™d lost sight of him so many times he might as well as not be there.
He turned and called back to me â€œhurry up, callum!â€. Puffing and panting, I caught up with him. He was standing by the barrier between platforms nine and ten.
â€œthrough, you go! I canâ€™t come with you, got other stuff to attend to. But youâ€™ll be perfectly safe once youâ€™re through there.â€ I nodded and ran at the barrier. I passed through and came out on the other side. This platform was even busier than kingâ€™s cross. It was packed tight with people and the noise of owls hooting and people chatting was almost deathening. The thing I noticed most, though, was the bright red steam train. My initial thought was â€œa steam train? Thatâ€™s a bit behind the times.â€. But then I remembered that this was England and that it was probably completely different from Bulgaria. I abandoned my trolley and carried my case and my owlâ€™s cage onto the train; I quickly found a compartment and settled down.
Now let me explain. My name is Anaya Bromin. I am the daughter of two death eaters and up until now, I used to go to durmstrang. I know, itâ€™s a boyâ€™s only school. I was living with my uncle we went to Bulgaria to escape my parents, I enrolled as a boy in durmstrang to throw them completely off the scent. Iâ€™ve been a boy ever since. Iâ€™ve been known as Callum Mifsud. But last year they found my uncle and killed him. They didnâ€™t realise, I was me though and they left me alone, my appearance had changed a lot since they last saw me, my hair was really short and a darker shade of blonde, besides, I was wearing my durmstrang uniform.
I was found by aurors and taken to England, where I went to live with my aunt celeste. I was then enrolled in hogwarts. Celeste had never met me before and was told, by Dumbledore, that I was my uncleâ€™s son. Dumbledore is protecting me, because he knows who I really am.
So here I am, travelling to hogwarts on an out of date train, under a false name and with everyone convinced I was a boy. Great, just what I always wanted. Just at that moment two boys and a very bushy haired girl, who looked about my age came in.
â€œhello! Can we sit here?â€ asked one of the boys, he had messy, black hair and startling green eyes.
â€œof course,â€ I smiled. â€œmy nameâ€™s callum.â€ Luckily my voice has always been quite deep.
â€œIâ€™m Hermione grangerâ€ said the bushy haired girl. â€œthis is ron weasley and this is harry potter,â€
I did a double take. The famous harry potter? But then I noticed the lightening scar on his fore head and knew it was him. Seeing my shocked expression, harry laughed.
â€œI can see youâ€™ve heard of me,â€ he grinned.
â€œsorry,â€ I smiled apologetically.
â€œdonâ€™t worry about it,â€ he said as he sat down. â€œI havenâ€™t seen you around, are you new?â€
â€œyep! I transferred from durmstrang, Iâ€™m entering fifth year.â€
â€œsame year as us!â€ ron said excitedly, he had a shock of flaming red hair and he was quite tall for his age. â€œdo you know what house youâ€™ll be in?â€
â€œbrilliant! Same as us!â€ ron said. â€œI thought you might be, because there is only nine people in Gryffindor this year. Funny, really. There are going to be six boys and four girls. Itâ€™s normally five and five.â€ I blushed but luckily they didnâ€™t notice.
â€œhey ron, there you are!â€. Two boys entered the compartment. They, too, had flaming red hair. They were completely identical, down to the last freckle.
â€œweâ€™ve been looking all over for you,â€ the other one said. â€œyou and hermione are supposed to be on prefect rounds.â€
â€œoh god!â€ Hermione squealed, grabbing ron and pulling him out of the compartment.
â€œhello harry!â€ the twins chorused, sitting down opposite us. â€œand, who are you?â€
â€œcallum Mifsud,â€ I grinned. â€œIâ€™m from durmstrang!â€
â€œwell, that explains why weâ€™ve never seen you before,â€ one said. â€œIâ€™m fred weasleys.â€
â€œand Iâ€™m geogeâ€
â€œnice to meet you.â€
Half an hour later, the train pulled into hogsmeade station. There were carriages waiting to take us to hogwarts. I got in one with harry, ron and Hermione. When I got there I joined them at the Gryffindor table. Dumbledore stood up to make a speech.
â€œWelcome back to another year at hogwarts!â€ he boomed, spreading his arms wide. â€œI hope you have had a good holiday and are now ready to start school again. This year I would like to welcome a new student to Gryffindor. Callum Mifsud.â€ Everyone clapped. Well, I say everyone, most of slytherin table just stared nastily at me.
â€œhey harry,â€ I whispered. â€œwhoâ€™s that boy with the pale blonde hair and the arrogant smirk?â€
â€œdraco malfoy!â€ harry answered through gritted teeth. â€œheâ€™s a stuck up pureblood who thinks heâ€™s better than everyone else.â€
â€œwerenâ€™t the malfoyâ€™s death eaters?â€ I asked
â€œyeah! But they wriggled out of it.â€ I said no more
I turned to stare at him, daring him to look away, but he held my gaze.
Draco malfoyâ€™s pov
â€œwelcome back to another year at hogwarts! I hope you have had a good holiday and are now ready to start school againâ€ Dumbledore droned on. I wasnâ€™t listening, he didnâ€™t merit my attention. â€œthis year I would like to welcome a new student to Gryffindor.â€
I brought me head up sharply. A new student? â€œCallum Mifsudâ€. Everyone started clapping. I looked over at callum. There was something odd about him, something that didnâ€™t quite fit in. he turned and stared back at me, I met his eyes. Yes, there was definitely something odd about callum Mifsud. And I was going to find out.
I turned away from malfoy as food appeared on the plates all along the table. I helped myself to something of everything, I had never had such good food. When we had all finished the food disappeared to be replaced by pudding. By this time I was too full to eat any more. I went up to bed feeling satisfied and sleepy. I was in a dorm with harry, ron, an irish boy called seamus, Neville longbottom, I had heard my parents gloating about his parents demise and I felt very uncomfortable around him, and dean Thomas. No one seemed to suspect my disguise so far, but I was going to have to be careful. Especially with people like malfoy lurking around.
â€œdid you think there was something odd about callum?â€
â€œyes, although I couldnâ€™t quite put my finger on it.â€
â€œdefinitely something, though.â€
We stayed in the common room til late that night pondering over what it was that was so odd about callum Mifsud.
