Willa Knox, through no fault of her own, was late. Her father had suggested that he drive a muggle car and Willa and her mother had foolishly agreed. They had both assumed that Mr Knox had learnt to drive during the years living with his muggle parents, what could go wrong? A lot, apparently. Two hours later, a broken rear door and one confused police officer later The Knoxs had finally reached the train station.
They piled Willa's bags onto a cart, including the howling cat who did not like this many people, and ran for platform 9 and 3/4. They received a few curious glances from muggles on their way to work.
Pushing through the barrier Willa had a moments feeling of relief to see the train still there.

"Good bye honey!" Her mother said, giving her a kiss on the cheek and a swift hug. Her father did the same,
"Enjoy your year!" He added. Willa nodded,
"Be careful when you drive back Dad." The girl added, "Mum, don't let him kill anyone." The parents waved goodbye, each no doubt reminiscing about their own time boarding the Hogwarts Express.
Farewells over Willa boarded the train and began to search for a cabin. She passed many filled with excited first years, she remembered her first train ride and the anxious anticipation of finally arriving at Hogwarts. She had been scared stiff-less that the sorting hat wouldn't sort her into any house, that some kind of horrible mistake had happened when she received her Hogwarts letter. Luckily that hadn't happened and she had been placed in Gryffindor.
Finding an empty cabin proved too hard and Willa eventually had to settle with one already occupied.
"You're Melissa, right?" Willa asked, stepping into the train carriage. The girl, Melissa, was a sixth year like Willa but from Hufflepuff. "Do you mind if I sit here? Everywhere else is full." Without waiting for an answer Willa pushed her bags away and happily sat down opposite Melissa.

Kye wondered down the train, Head Boy badge proudly displayed on his chest. He was already in his robes too, the Ravenclaw blue and bronze insignia on his chest clearly stating his house. He was checking the cabins to make sure everything was in order, as would the other Hogwarts' prefects. He was tall and seemed to tower over most of the younger students.
'Was I ever that short?' He thought to himself as an anxious first year rushed by. 'Probably shorter' He added to himself with a smile. They seemed to get shorter every year, or perhaps it was just him gaining height. He had had another growth spurt over the holidays too.

He glanced out to the station where late students were finishing arriving and final farewells were being said.
Of course he had been here early, one of the first students to arrive. His parents had given him a farewell from home and left him to apparate to the station. Apparition was still new and exciting to him, he had spent most of the holidays appearing and disappearing around his family home - much to the annoyance of his older brothers. They had also seemed annoyed when Kye had been made Head Boy, something neither of the two had done.

He glanced into one of the cabins and found it occupied by two girls, both the year below him. A quick grin flitted across his face as he recognised Willa, his neighbour and old friend, sitting with a Hufflepuff girl. He changed his expression to one of mock seriousness and then grandly opened the cabin door, making sure to sweep his robes behind him as he entered.
"Students." He greeted, nodding in turn to both girls, "I trust everything is in order."

Willa, for her part, was able to stifle a snort of laughter and replied with a half bow from her seat,
"My Lord-King-Head Boy, what have we done to be given the great honour of your presence?" She couldn't stop the grin that spread across her face.

Kye turned to the other girl, was she one of the Hufflepuff twins? Melissa possibly? He couldn't quite remember.
"Ignore her, she has no idea what she is saying." he told her, placing a condescending hand on Willa's head and ruffling her hair. Willa just rolled her eyes and pushed his hand away. For all his serious work ethics and supposed responsibilities as Head Boy, Kye could still be an immature pain at times.
