Chapter 1: New Girl
My name is Juliet Williams. I was born into a pure-blood family of Slytherins. My parents hate me, mostly because I'm kind and caring, not the bullies that they were when they were at school. I came to Hogwarts in the middle of 1st Year. I was the new girl.
I got sorted privately with just Dumbledore and some other teachers. I was put into Hufflepuff, oh god, my parents were going to kill me! But, I decided to try to focus and make some friends. I didn't really make many friends in my own house, except for Hannah Abbott, a nice girl that was sweet to me when I first came to Hogwarts. But, I made friends with Neville Longbottom, this chubby, sweet boy in Gryffindor. He and I have a lot in common and he's in a lot of my classes, we both really love Herbology.
I was just walking to the library to study for a Potions test the next day, when Neville came up to me and asked if he could join me. I nodded, my toffee coloured hair swinging. When we got into the libray we both sat down and Neville spoke. "Juliet, you have to promise me something. It's really important." He said, nervously, biting his thumbnail. "What is it?" I asked, curious about what he was about to say. He looked at me, with a nervous smile on his face. he fiddled the pocket in his robe, looking back at me every once in a while.
He finally pulled out a little, black, velvety box. I looked at him, confused. "It's a friendship ring. To show that we'll be friends forever." I let out a relieved sigh. It was just a friendship ring, nothing to be worried about.
