I sighed as I placed my book back in my trunk as the train pulled into the station. I had just finished my first year at Hogwarts, and it was time for me to go back to the Dursleys. I looked up as I felt Hermione's hand on my arm. She smiled reassuringly at me. I smiled back at her, silently thanking her for her equally silent encouragement. I could make it through the summer. I had friends who I could talk to now. It was different now. No matter what the Dursleys put me through this summer, I had people who I could talk to, people who would listen.

Me, Hermione and Ron left the train, and we said our goodbyes on the platform. I placed my trunk and Hedwig's cage on a trolley, and pushed the trolley through the barrier to the muggle area of the train station. I saw the Dursleys a little way away from the barrier, and walked over to them.

"Hurry up Girl!" Vernon said. "We have things to do!"

"Yes Uncle Vernon." I said timidly, averting my eyes and trying to look small.

He led his wife, son and me out to the car park, and to the car. I placed my trunk into the boot of the car, and noticed several suitcases in the boot. I sat in the car, with Hedwig's cage on my lap.

As the car pulled out of the car park, Uncle Vernon began his explanation of the suitcases in the trunk. "I have been given a great opportunity by my employers girl! I have been offered the chance to go to Washington D.C to do business with our American counterpart. Now Mrs. Fig is indisposed, so unfortunately we have to take you with us. We have arranged a passport for you. We are going to pick it up, and get a photo placed on it, and then we are heading for the airport. Now, we don't want to hear a thing from you. Is that understood?"

"Yes sir." I said. "Should I write one of my friends a note, and send Hedwig to her, to stay with her while we're in America."

"Yes."

I pulled a piece of parchment from the small bag I had on me, and a quill and an ink well. I wrote a quick note to Hermione, explaining everything, and I opened Hedwig's cage. I gave her the note, and told her to go to Hermione. I lowered the car window, and Hedwig took off.

It didn't take very long to get my passport finalised, and then we were on our way to the airport. That was when I realised that catching a plane was nothing but endless waiting. I sat a few seats away from my relatives when waiting for our flight to be called. Then I realised that I had been given a seat quite far away from the Dursleys. Not that I cared. I wouldn't have to put up with them for thirteen hours at least.

Little did I know that my life was going to change quite drastically, or that I was going to change the lives of Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs and his team at N.C.I.S.
