The giant clock on the wall showed 10:45 and I continued to look around the station for them. Where on earth could they be? I really wanted to speak to Uncle Harry but if he didn’t get here there wouldn’t be enough time.
“There they are. Let’s go and say hello.” At the sound of my mother’s voice I whirled around and sure enough there stood Albus, Lilly, Auntie Ginny and Uncle Harry but no James. I ran over to them and beamed at Albus.
“Hey Al, you excited about going to Hogwarts?” I asked him as mum and dad started talking to my Auntie and Uncle about boring adult things and Lilly and Hugo started complaining about how unfair it was because they couldn’t go.
“Yea, I can’t wait. It’s going to be brilliant!” He was so excited. Uncle Harry placed his trunk on the train at the same time my dad put mine on. I turned around to give my mum a hug before I left; it was kind of weird leaving home for 2 months. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Hugo doing the same and I couldn’t help but smile, at least I wasn’t going to be alone; I had Al. When dad had finished putting my trunk on the train I gave him a hug too before giving one to Aunt Ginny, Hugo and Lilly who both looked upset at being left behind. Albus had finished saying goodbye before me and he was already standing in the entrance to the train.
“Come on Rose, before there’s nowhere left to sit” shouted Hugo as he waited for me to follow him on board the train.
“I’ll be on in a minute I just want to talk to Uncle Harry.” I explained before turning around and motioning for my Uncle to follow me; I didn’t want mum or dad to hear.
“Rose you’ll miss the train!” shouted mum but I pretended I didn’t hear her.
“So, what do you want to talk about?” Asked Uncle Harry once I had stopped walking.
“Well I was wondering, who’s D.Malfoy?” His forehead creased and he gave me a puzzled look.
“Did you not ask your mum or dad?”
“Yes but they said to ask you and please would you just answer the question because I don’t want to miss the train.” I huffed; all this secrecy was starting to annoy me.
“Well first of all he was called Draco Malfoy and you know how me and you mum and dad were best friends in school?” I nodded not wanting to interrupt him when I was finally getting told the truth. “Well we never got on in school. We did some things; he did some things and now we’re friends, okay?” I was furious.
“No that is not ok, is that really all you’re going to tell me! What did you and my mum and dad do? What did he do?” I pestered but he just shook his head.
“Not today Rose” I opened my mouth to argue but he quickly interrupted me. “I promise I will one day if your parents don’t but for now you’re going to miss the train if you don’t get on.” I looked up at the clock and was shocked to see it said 10:58, I suppose I was going to have to leave it for now. I quickly ran back down the platform and jumped on the train to find a frantic Albus.
“Where have you been, I thought the train was going to go without you!”
“I wouldn’t leave you to face Hogwarts on your own.” I replied airily as we both stuck our heads out of the window to wave a final goodbye to our family.
“Of course not” replied Hugo rolling his eyes, but smiling nonetheless as the Hogwarts express started to leave the station. I just laughed as we headed down the packed train to find a compartment to sit in.
“Oh, here’s one, there’s only one boy in and he looks like a 1st year” stated Al as he opened the door to the compartment. “Mind if we join you?” he asked the boy.
“No, not at all, so what are your names?” he asked us once we had put our trunks away and taken the seats opposite him.
“I’m Rose and this is my cousin Albus, what about you?” I answered as Al nodded his head at the boy.
“Malfoy, Scorpius Malfoy.”
