Here's Chapter Eight! (:

The next day, I felt like myself again. After much insisting on my part to Madame Promfrey that I felt fine, she released me from the hospital ward, just in time for breakfast.

I headed towards the Great Hall. My Grandmother had told me that was where The Sorting Ceremony took place, where the meals were served, and where the owls delivered mail from home.

I smiled when I came upon Harry walking out of the Great Hall. \"Harry!\"

He looked up at the sound of his name.

\"Lily..\" he said, sounding relieved. \"I was just getting ready to come check on you. You're feeling better?\"
\"Much better.\" I answered.

\"Good. Have you eaten yet?\"
\"No, not yet. I was just getting ready to.\"

\"I'll come with you then. Ron and Hermione are still eating anyways.\"
I looked at him quizzically. \"Who?\"
\"My friends. They're in Gryffindor as well. I'll introduce you.\"
We entered the Great Hall and walked quickly to the Gryffindor House table.The tinkly sound of silverware and plates being used filled the enormous room.

As we walked, I realized that faces were turning to stare at me. Many students started whispering as we walked by. With horror, I remembered the many other students in the corrider yesterday that must have witnessed me fainting. 'How humiliating..' I thought to myself. 'They must be expecting me to fall over again any second.'

After what seemed like an eternity, we reached the Gryffindor table, and came upon two people bickering across the table from each other.

\"Honestly Ron, you eat like you've been starving for a week straight.\" said a pretty girl with wavy brown hair disgustedly. There was an open book laying on the table in front of her.

\"Well, at least I don't read while every other normal person here is having breakfast!\" a red-haired boy retorted, with his mouth half full of food.

\"Are you implying that I'm not normal?\" said the girl heatedly, slamming her book shut.

\"Guys!\" Harry said loudly enough to be heard over the increasing volume of their voices.

The two teenagers looked up startledly, like they hadn't realized anyone else was there to hear their arguing.

\"Harry, hi!\" the girl said, smiling.

\"I leave you guys alone for two seconds, and you're already jumping down each other's throats.\" Harry said playfully, shaking his head and sitting down at the table. \"This is Lily.\" \"Lily, this is Ron and Hermione.\"
Ron merely glanced at me and gave me a mumbled 'hello' before he continued shoveling food into his mouth.

Hermione rolled her eyes and reached across the table to shake my hand. \"Excuse him. I would say he's not normally like this, but I would be lying.\"

I smiled at her. \"Nice to meet you.\"
\"So you're feeling better? Harry told us of the..uh..mishap you had yesterday.\" She frowned.

\"Yes, I'm feeling much better. What a great first day, huh?\" I laughed.

She smiled understandingly. \"Classes can be stressful, especially when exams roll around.\"
\"Bloody Hell, Hermione, don't scare the girl with exams already! She just sat down!\" Ron said. It seemed as if he'd finally finished eating and could now actually talk.

\"I was just informing her..\" Hermione started again loudly.

\"Guys!\" Harry said, speaking over top of her. \"Can we not argue for once, please?\"
Hermione stood up and picked up her book and duffel bag. \"I have to go to the library before Transfiguration anways.\" she said airily. \"Nice meeting you, Lily.\" She walked off quickly.

Ron glared at her as she left.

Harry sighed, then smiled at me apologetically. \"I would say they're not normally like this, but, I would be lying.\"

I laughed, pulling a nearby plate of food towards me and started eating.
