“Ok Rosie, you know what to do in an emergency, yes?” Said Hermione Weasley, holding onto Rose’s shoulders, gripping them until her fingers turned white.
“For the last time mum, I’ll be fine. I know what to do.” Rose said, wincing as Hermione dug her hands into Rose’s shoulders, and brushed her mother’s hands away. “Either I send you an owl, tell a professor or talk to James and Albus and Lily and Hugo and—“
“Alright, alright!” Exclaimed Hermione, “I get it. You know what to do. I’m sorry” She breathed, pulling Rose into a tight hug.
“Mum!” Rose squealed. She struggled out of the hug. It wasn’t that she hated her mum or anything, it was quite the opposite. She loved her mum to bits, but she was quite embarrassed, standing outside platform 9 ¾ waiting for the Hogwarts Express to roll in, so the gateway would open. She was already getting collective stares from Hogwarts students, and Rose wanted to make a lasting impression in her first year. She wanted to make an entrance, like her Uncle Harry, her dad, or her Uncle George.
Not that she’d tell her over-protective mum that.
She sighed, thinking of the possibilities, working out various scenarios in her head.
“Rose? Rosie?!” Hermione bellowed, clicking her fingers in front of Rose’s face.
“Ow, mum, I really wanted to be deaf in time for Hogwarts!” Rose said, her voice dripping with sarcasm. Hermione slapped Rose’s arm lightly. “I’ve had enough of your attitude young lady.” She said flatly. She’d told Rose time and time again not to be sarky, but Rose insisted in listening to her father instead. Ron was a bad influence.
“Bloody hell” A voice yelled from the entrance to the railway station. Slowly, Ron came into view, shoving along a trolley with various suitcases and carry holders. He cursed as he made his way through the crowds over to Hermione and Rose, limping.
“Language Ron. Don’t go giving Rosie ideas” Said Hermione, putting an arm around Rose. Rose groaned. She hated being called Rosie. She shrugged her mum’s arm off her shoulders, and put her arms round her dad, who ruffled her hair fondly. “How’s my nutcracker?” He said softly, picking Rose up and hugging her as if she weighed no less than a pygmy puff. Rose giggled, and slipped out her dad’s embrace, fetching Jilly from the cat basket which was balanced a little too precariously on the trolley.
Jilly hissed at Ron as Rose scooped her up and stood by her dad’s side. “Bloody cat” Ron muttered under his breath. He wouldn’t say it out loud, not in front of Rose, who adored the stupid cat. Only yesterday it had peed all over Ron’s new shoes. He spent hours flicking through the Household book of cleaning spells and potions, looking for the scouring spell.
“What did you do to your foot Hun?” said Hermione, breaking Ron out his trance.
“Lost control of the trolley.” He said angrily, “I ran my foot over” He lifted his foot up, and took his shoes off, searching for bruises. “It wouldn’t have happened if I could have used Mobiliarbus” He said, delving into his pockets for his wand.
“Ronald Weasley!” Shrieked Hermione, grabbing Ron’s wrist. “Not when there are..,” she hesitated, “Not when there are muggles here!” She hissed, letting go of Ron’s wrist. “The gateway should be open now.” She said, calm now Ron was under control. “Go ahead with Rosie” She said, nodding her head towards Ron. “I’ll wait for Harry and Ginny” She said.
“But, I haven’t seen Harry for months!” Ron protested. He was about to go further, but Hermione shoved him through the gateway.
“I’ll be there in a minute Rosie Pie” Hermione said sweetly, and gently pushed Rose in the direction of the gateway.
“Mum?” Asked Rose, just before she walked through the wall.
“Where are the others? I didn’t see them this morning, and you didn’t tell me where they are. I wanna play exploding snap with them!” She blushed with shame as two muggle school children looked at her and giggled at her words.
Hermione laughed, remembering her games of exploding snap on the Hogwarts express with Harry and Ron. “I thought your father told you.” She said. “They went to stay with Teddy last night when you were in bed. We both thought it would be best for them to be out of the way, seeing as it’s your first day at Hogwarts and all. Give you a bit of peace and quiet before you went.” What she knew though, and what Rose didn't, is that the others were busy working on a project. For Hogwarts.
“Ok” Rose smiled. But inside, she wished she was travelling in the family car, with her siblings and cousins. She liked the rowdiness of her family. She’d never let her mother know she was sad though, so she slapped a smile on, tried to stop Jilly from escaping and walked through the gateway, and onto the platform.
Once on the platform, she looked at the Hogwarts express in awe. Its red splendour was beauteous to her, as she stood beside it, inhaling the steam with a fly away look on her face. The tooting of the train brought her to her senses, and she scanned the crowd, looking for her dad, hugging her cat tight, much to Jilly’s annoyance. There were a lot of people. Mostly first years, eager to go to Hogwarts at last.
As she looked for her dad, she saw a boy. Talking to his parents. Not too far away. He glanced at Rose, and she blushed, ashamed she had been caught staring. But, in the moment when their eyes locked, she became mesmerised by his grey, stormy eyes.
She spun around, losing her grip on the tabby cat, to see her dad rushing forwards with the trolley. “I’ve been looking for you everywhere!” He panted, red in the face to match his carrot coloured hair. “Where were you?” He reached down and caught Jilly as she ran past.
“Just around…” She said vaguely. Ron looked as if he were going to say something, but a flash of brown and ginger rushed past them, stopping next to them. It was James, Albus and Lily. James was laughing, at some joke, Albus was snorting into his hand, and Lily was staring at her brothers tiredly.
“Heya” Rose said.
“Rose, oh merlin, you should have been there!” James giggled. Giggled. “We played the best prank on Vernette! We—“ He broke off laughing hysterically. Albus sighed at his brothers incapability of telling the story. Vernette was Harry’s cousin’s daughter. She got into Beauxbatons academy. Probably because she didn't want to go to the same school as her pranking cousins.
Dudley had fallen in love with Susan Bones, before realising she was a witch. That didn't stop them marrying though. Dudley and Susan lived in London, and were apparating to France to bid farewell to their precious daughter.
Vernette was a prissy, know it all. As James said. It was in James’ best interests to prank Vernette as much as it was physically possible. Vernette was leaving for her school in the next hour or so, and came to the platform with her parents to say good bye.
“Basically, we cast a simple hippy dippy love spell that we got from Uncle George's shop over some muggle, so he’d fall head over heels in love with Vernette. He wouldn’t leave her alone” Albus said.
“What you on about?” James said sharply, “Albus did it, he’s the clever one” Albus blushed, and continued “Anyway, he kept trying to get near Vernette to kiss her, but he accidentally pushed her into the gateway. He followed. It was quite funny. Rose, your mum was trying to cast obliviate spell when we left. He was putting up a fight. A muggle. Fighting against our spell!” Albus said, whilst James tried and failed to tut at the muggle’s actions.
“Yeah, so Al’s spell was pretty good. Auntie Hermione is going to have to wait for at least 20 more minutes until her spell will work” James spluttered, doubling over at Ron’s feet. “Oh good lord” Ron muttered. “Up you get James” He said, pulling the giggling boy up after dropping Jilly into Rose’s arms, “We don’t want you sprawled on the floor instead of on the train, in fits of laughter”
James stood up, tried to put a serious face on, then laughed. “Come on Al, lets go, the train’ll leave soon” He said, dragging his brother with him. Lily rolled her eyes and followed. Rose made off to go with her, but Ron put a hand on her shoulder. “Rose, remember what I said to you about the Malfoys?” He said sincerely. Rose looked her dad in the eye. “Never talk to a Malfoy, never go out your way for a Malfoy, and never ever befriend a Malfoy” She recited.
“Good,” Ron said, patting Rose’s head. He hugged her tightly, squishing Jilly in the process, and Rose her to the train. “Your mum will be a while yet” He said, “go find a seat, or else you’ll miss the train altogether”
Rose smiled, and dumped her luggage on board, then trotted down the train, looking for a compartment with Jilly at her feet. They were all full, and she couldn’t move any further down the train due to what looked like sleeping gas. The fun has begun, she thought to herself, and wandered back the other way. She walked past each compartment until she found an empty one. She let herself in and collapsed onto the seat, releasing Jilly, to look out the window.
"Uh, hi" a voice said. Rose whipped around, only to cause her hair to flick into her eye. "Argh!" she yelled, covering the damaged eye. She looked towards the door. There in the corner was a boy she missed when she had glanced through the window. The boy in the corner had blondish, messy hair and a smirk on his face. The boy in the corner had grey stormy eyes.
