The first other girl to get up is Sue Li, but the others are not too far behind.
She says a quiet "Good morning" to Sue then goes to take a shower and get dressed for the day. When that's done she'll ask "Does anyone want to walk down to breakfast together?"
Wonderful. "So, are any of you looking forward to any class in particular?"
"One of them, especially for Ravenclaw first years."
"I think I'm most looking forward to transfiguration. It seems like it's really flexible and I feel like it builds on itself in a way that the charms curriculum doesn't seem to as much."
"I think it'll be worth it but I haven't tried it yet so maybe I'll change my mind. Potions also sounds neat."
She'll eat a bit more than she'd tend to at the Dursleys but she won't stuff herself. "Have any of you heard about what the teachers are like?"
"Like whether they're strict, whether they're interesting to learn from, how they tend to conduct classes. Things like that."
"I really hope you're wrong."
"Why would he want an evil teacher?"
"I second that question. This is real life not a storybook. The point of school is to teach us things."

"I suppose I won't have to wait long then." She focuses her attention on finishing her breakfast.

Sarah waves to her.
