Kings Cross Station was full of Muggles trying to catch trains to work. Amidst the yawning and impatient Muggles were a family with dirty blond hair wearing rather unusual attire. The father was wearing a blue flowery shirt and camouflage shorts while the two children were wearing matching blue and purple shirts and wearing camouflage trousers. The main was pushing a trolley with a trunk and an owl on it. The owl was rather disgruntled and shot reproaching looks at any muggle who looked its way.
Then, the family just disappeared. As if they walked through one of the walls and life in Muggle Kings Cross carried on as usual.
On the other side of the barrier The man was giving the boy a hug and was telling him that Professor McGonagall would be taking him aside before he got sorted to talk about his 'furry little problem'. He let go and the boy was engulfed in a hug by his sister before the man helped him store his trunk in a compartment and waved to him before taking the girls hand, turning on his heel and disappearing.
Lycan still didn't understand why they didn't just apparate or floo to the station, but it seems Xeno wanted him to go through the wall to get to Platform 9 ¾ for his first time.
Lycan closed the door to his compartment and got into his Hogwarts robes and just as he was sitting down again his compartment door opened and a boy was standing there looking rather flustered. He was still carrying his trunk so Harry told him he could sit in his compartment and helped the boy put his trunk in the overhead storage. The boy then introduced himself as Neville and a toad jumped out from its cage above their heads and Harry only just grabbed hold of it before it got out of the door, but it kicked at him and got free only to be picked up by a girl standing in the compartment doorway.
"Is this yours?" She asked Lycan. Lycan shook his head and nodded at Neville. The girl had bushy hair and introduced herself as Hermione Granger. Neville then introduced himself and Lycan. Lycan smiled at her and asked her if she would like to join them, as she was also still carrying her trunk. She agreed and they chatted a bit about what they were hoping to do at Hogwarts. Then the door opened once more and a very flustered Ron entered, looking as if he just ran the London Marathon.
"Hey Lycan." He said panting "Fred and George pranked Percy again so we were almost late for the train."
"Oh no, what did they do this time?" asked Lycan.
"You know how Percy was made a Prefect this year," Harry nodded "Well, they stuck his badge to his hat back and he was searching the house for an hour before Ginny pointed it out to him." Lycan burst out in laughter as the Devils themselves entered their compartment.
"Hey Lycan," Said Fred
"How have you been?" Finished George
"I've been great, Ron was just telling me about what you did to Percy this morning. Have you got any pranks planned for this year at Hogwarts?" Replied Lycan.
"Well, we're going to try and blow up all the toilets on the third floor and leave the toilet seats outside Filches office." They said in unison.
"Oh, how rude of me. Ron, Fred, George; these are Hermione Granger and Neville Longbottom. Neville, Hermione; these are Ron, Fred and George Weasley." Said Lycan.
They all greeted each other before Fred and George left to find their friend Lee Jordan.
The journey to Hogwarts was relatively calm. There was a scuffle outside their corridor between two boys named Draco Malfoy and Dean Thomas, but apart from that nothing out of the ordinary happened.
Neville, Hermione, Ron and Lycan were talking about Quidditch when Hermione and Ron got in an argument about whether Quidditch was more important than learning and of course, Lycan and Neville both backed up Ron so Hermione left the compartment saying she was going to go and find some new people to sit with before stalking out without her trunk.
When the train finally came to a stop at Hogsmeade Station Lycan, Ron and Neville climbed off the train to a loud booming voice shouting "FIRS' YEARS THIS WAY!"
Another chapter! WOW! Yeah, this is my apology for leaving you so long without anything. You will probably get another one tomorrow. I have decided to make them seven different fics, so I could do more detailed stories and chapters without it becoming over 200 chapters long. I have planned out the whole of book 1, so now it's a case of writing them. I don't have a Beta, so if you are interested PM me :)
