After charms class we were on our way to dinner and I overheard Ron talking about me and making harsh remarks that I think I'm better than everybody else, that I am snob and a 'know it all'. I then ran off as I was hurt by those words and spent the rest of the evening crying in the girl's toilet.
Meanwhile Professor Quirell ran into the dinner hall screaming, 'TROLL in the dungeon, TROLL in the dungeon, I thought you ought to know' and then he fainted. After the Professor's traumatic display, the teachers ran off to get rid of the troll while Harry and Ron came in the toilets to warn me of that a troll was on the school premises. But believe it or not immediately after they entered the toilets, the troll came in and that was when everything got very chaotic.
The troll tried to attack us; Ron then used a spell that we learnt earlier in charms class to control the troll's club and used it to clobber it on the head until it fainted and Harry then dragged me to safety. It was one of the most horrific and terrifying experience I have ever encountered in my life. I really do appreciate Harry's bravery and Ron's quick thinking, so all in all it was a joint effort that saved your precious daughters life. But let's not dwell on the negative events that took place at Hogwarts.
On a positive aspect we won the gold cop for Gryffindor house. At first I did not think that we would stand a chance because the end-of-year feast was decked out with Slytherin colours of green and silver to celebrate Slytherin's winning the house cup for the seventh year in a row. There was a huge banner showing the Slytherin serpent covered the wall behind the high table. Dumbledore began awarding the houses with their points; "in fourth place, Gryffindor, with three hundred and twelve points," I really did not know what to say, and I felt so disappointed.
Not to my surprise in first place was Slytherin with four hundred and seventy-two. A storm of cheering and stamping broke out from the Slytherin table. Dumbledore then said "yes, yes, well done, Slytherin." "However, recent events must be taken into account", and the room went silent. Then he says he has a few last-minute points to dish out.
"First to Mr Ronald Weasley, for the best-played chess Hogwarts has seen in years, I award Gryffindor house fifty points". "Second to Miss Hermione Granger... for the cool use of logic in the face of fire, I award Gryffindor house fifty points". I then buried my face in my arms from disbelief. Dumbledore then said "third to Mr Harry Potter...for pure nerve and outstanding courage, I award Gryffindor house sixty points." Everyone knew that Gryffindor now had four hundred and seventy points - exactly the same as Slytherin. We had drawn for the House Cup - if only Dumbledore had given Harry just one more point. Dumbledore raised his hand and the room gradually went silent.
"There are all kinds of courage," he said smiling. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. I therefore award ten points to Mr Neville Longbottom." A loud noise erupted from Gryffindor table and Harry, Ron and I stood up and cheered with exhilaration, we were so overwhelmed with excitement, we just could not keep still. In an instant the green became scarlet and the silver became gold; the vast Slytherin serpent vanished and a soaring Gryffindor lion took its place. It really felt great and I am looking forward to next year.
My first year has almost ended but it was a remarkable and an awe-inspiring experience, surely one I will never forget. It seemed that thing would be back to normal next year, well as normal as it ever was at Hogwarts. I can't wait to see you Mum and Dad. I love you loads. Tell every one high and I will be home soon.
