We kept staring at her for nearly a minute until either one of us spoke.

"What? What is it? Do I have something in my teeth? Not on my first day!" Hermione rummaged through her bag furiously, looking for a mirror.

"No, but who are you?"

"Hermione Granger, I just told you that."

"And why are you so important?" I asked. I frowned. "No, I don't mean it that way, I just mean, who are you and why are you here? Oh, did that seem rude? Sorry. I'm Olivia, and this is Ron, and my brother Harry." I introduced them. Harry gave me a quick glance when I mentioned he was my brother. I shrugged ever so slightly. Everyone was going to find out soon anyway.

"Harry Potter? I've read all about you!" Hermione exclaimed. Harry looked uncomfortable. "Can you tell me all about it?" She plopped down on the seat eagerly.

"Er, no, I don't really know much about it."

"Oh," said Hermione, disappointed, "If I were you, I would have read all about it." Then she turned to Ron, who was still holding his rat. I think its name is Scab or something like that. "Oh, were you going to do magic? Let's see, then." She folded her hands promptly across her lap. Ron cleared his throat and turned bright red.

"Not really, er," he started. Then he saw Hermione's face and hastily began to recite the incantation. "Sunshine daisies, butter mellow, turn this stupid, fat rat yellow!" This had absolutely no effect. It was hilarious. While Harry and I were chortling, Hermione had her lips pressed together, looking at Ron.

"Not very affective, was it?" she asked shrewdly. Ron quickly stashed his wand in his pocket and set his rat carefully on the seat. "Well, I'm off to get changed, and you probably should, too. I talked to the driver fifteen minutes ago and he said we're almost there." She stood up and left the compartment, her nose high in the air. Ron glared at her back.

"Fred and George gave me that spell. Bet they knew it was a dud." He sighed dramatically. I snorted.

"Obviously. And who's Fred and George?" I asked.

"His brothers. They helped me get my trunk on the train." Harry said. "They're twins," he added decisively.

"Twin brothers?" I asked, looking at Ron. "Any siblings are foreign to us. We barely know each other." I said, nodding to Harry.

"Actually, it's not just them two." Ron said glumly. "I have five older brothers including the twins, and a younger sister. But Charlie and Bill've already graduated from Hogwarts. And Percy's a prefect." Ron grumbled.

"What's so bad about that?" I asked.

"It's hard to live up to. Charlie was Quidditch Captain, Bill was prefect and Head Boy, Percy's a prefect, and everyone loves the twins; they think they're hilarious."

"What about your sister?" I asked.

"Ginny? She's the baby of the family. It doesn't matter if she isn't special. She'll always be in my mother's eyes. Me? I couldn't be more invisible. I just want to do something greater than them all. Something amazing, that they could never beat. I want to be…I don't know, just forget it." Aw. I actually feel sorry for him. It must be tough. At least I didn't have to grow up in Harry's shadow.

"Don't worry. You'll amount to something." I consoled him. He gave a half-smile.

"Thanks, Olivia."

"Please, don't mention it. Ever. To anyone. Or I will make sure you can never spill my secrets again." I said.

Suddenly, the train stopped. The driver's voice magically crackled overhead.

"All passengers, you have arrived at your destination, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." I shivered as my spine tingled. I was finally here! The place I've been dreaming of my whole life!

Hogwarts, here I come.
