"It seems like everyone else is going to Madam Malkin's so I guess I should probably try there first..." Giren said, "He actually failed to tell me which store he was going to.." Giren looked a bit annoyed by his mentor's negligence.

Here he was looking like an idiot because he knew almost nothing about this place. Then again, Seraph did tell him to get to know the neighbors at the boarding house, but Giren, like he always did, avoided his surroundings. Giren was actually shocked he had spent so much time with these other students, perhaps it was because they had something in common, a feeling Giren never had towards any of his peers in the Muggle World. At the boarding house it was almost all older witches and wizards, so this was really the first time Giren had even encounted any that were his own age.

------

Fortunately Madam Malkin's was not very crowded, seeing as the group had started buying the supplies for the year early. This meant the stores had more in stock. Most of the students buying now were either really tall, or really fat, students who wore uniforms in sizes that weren't carried in as high of numbers as regular sizes. There was even one boy who was half-giant.
"Ah.. Giren, I see you've made some new friends, I was just talking to Hagrid here about some ideas we had for our classes."
"S-sorry for being late." Giren looked a bit shocked at seeng the large man Seraph was talking to.
"Save that for when you're in school, a true wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to." Seraph gave a smirk. "Hagrid here teaches care of magical creatures, unfortunately that class is for third years and up, though I'm sure he wont mind you sneaking a peek at some of the creatures he cares for."
"Assuming yeh have permission of course. I used teh av three lil one much like yerselves always comin up teh visit me." Hagrid stated with a kind smile.

After being introduced to Hagrid Giren pulled Zelric to the side. "Um...I hate to ask you this...but how do wizards dress? I didnt want to ask the girls because...well, they're girls and probably have different ideas on the subject.." he said in a whisper in case the girls were still nearby.
All Giren knew from this point was that everyone wore robes, now the issue was what size, did they typically wear them big, was it smarter to buy them longer or shorter? Giren really didn't want everyone to think he was a Muggle so soon, the quicker he started looking like a real wizard, the better.

Zelric snapped his head down and blushed slightly, he had been looking up looking, but he wasn't conscious about the fact the others were still there. He nodded to Adelaide and looked down the Alley. -I'm heading to Madame Malkin's as well. I didn't agree on any meeting place with my uncle, but I'm sure Yume and Nozimi will find a way of making the two of us meet...Hopefully...- He said the hopefully in a whisper, he was starting to be aware that his uncle had indeed disappeared without telling him were to meet. It made him feel somewhat exposed, which didn't work well with him being bashful. He smiled a bit at Giren's comment, it seemed that they were on the same situation.

Either way, he would go with the rest to Madame Malkin's. The store wasn't too crowded, which worked just well for Zelric, he entered the store with the other kids and started to look at the robes that were on display, before taking a look at his list. He saw Giren talking to a man which he guessed must be the Seraph he mentioned before. He recognized him from the pictures his father had shown him. He approached them but didn't have time to say anything before Giren pulled him to the side. He showed him his list, specifically the part about uniform. -Well, most use robes like the ones sold here. But my father said that we are supposed to use uniforms all the time in Hogwarts. And my uncle told me that when he was studying he wore a pair of jeans and a t-shirt underneat his uniform... So I think I will do the same. I'll ask for help about fitting, I think they do it here.- He spoke in a low tone, if Giren had pulled him aside he didn't wanted the others to hear.

He glanced at Hagrid and Seraph and wondered how would classes in Hogwarts be. He had been in a muggle school for some time, and from what he had been told, Hogarts was better. Also being in a boarding school would be quite a new experience, compared to going back home everyday. At least he had a few students he seemed to be getting well with already.

Adelaide smiled as everyone had agreed that going to Malkin's was the best bet for everybody. It was settled then. As they started to move towards the store she looked at the crowds. For a moment she wondered where all her family was. Now that she had the company of these students she wasn't sure if she wanted her relatively larger family in the shop at the same time. She never had too many problems with new people, but in the end she realized it would be nice to be around family again. Thinking of the names Zelric had said of the two falcons she was surprised at how unique they were, she liked it. Wondering if it had any special meaning she couldn't help but think of the name of her own feline companion. He wasn't around, as he didn't do crowds very much. Something about being a cat probably. Quickly Adelaide realized that her own companions name was probably very boring in retrospect now. Looking back at the group as they arrived in front of the store she snapped out of her inner monologue and entered the store with the others. Even though she hadn't had issues with strangers, she honestly was surprised with herself in the group. Adelaide was usually a very quiet individual, thoughtful and analyzing everything.

Looking around the store she didn't see any of her own family and wondered if she had arrived early or if they were simply late. The Tanith family was usually very prompt on time, so she became a little worried. Looking at the ground she looked up as she heard 2 adults talking to Giren and was surprised at Hagrid. Of coarse she knew of him and had seen him before in pictures and such, but she never realized how small she was, or how big he really was. Smiling at the conversation of adults she was interested in the subject, but animals weren't exactly too well with her. A mishap during childhood had made her a little nervous around the bigger ones. Watching Giren pull Zelric aside she wandered over to a section to look through the robes. She had her own, but her parents insisted on buying new ones for the school year. Just as she heard the boys start talking her father walked in and quickly found her. To her he looked a little disgruntled as if something had happened, but to most he would seem normal. "Well... How did it go? Make friends?" He said in a quiet voice looking at his daughter and then at the others in the store. He had saw her earlier in front of the store with the others but he wasn't sure how his fist daughter was handling being on her own. He was resisting urges to be an over protective father, but kept the urges subsided by conversation.

Adelaide looked up at her father and smiled and nodded. "Yes. Three. Cat, Zelric and Giren." She said as she looked at the respective peers who had spread out a little. "And Seraph and Hagrid." Adelaide added quickly smiling kindly at the other two adults. Hadrian looked over at the other adults, obviously he probably knew them. Waving a little hello he looked back at his daughter. "Well of coarse, good to know you are getting along." He said softly to Adelaide. "Your mother is still tied up with the twins, and who knows where your brother is." He said with a little grin. Nodding Adelaide was looking at the robes. Quickly there was an awkward blanket around the two. The classic awkward-ness of a father shopping for clothes, especially with his daughter. Adelaide looked at the other students again, wondering if they had people they were meeting her as well.

Catriona smiled at the three others as they all concluded that Madam Malkin's was the destination for all four of them. She walked there with the others, just listening while some of the other talked around her. When they entered the store, Cat looked around. She couldn't see her parents at the moment, but since they hadn't exactly said a time, she thought that they must just still be at another store. Since Giren seemed to have found Seraph though, Cat decided to follow up to them. The professor was standing next to a much larger man, that Seraph introduced him as Hagrid, Cat remembered hearing about sometime from her parents.

When Giren seemed to pull Zelric a little to the side, and the adults began to talk to eachother once again, Cat looked around in the store. She saw how Adelaide had began wander away between the robes, and how a man, seeming to know her, walked up and started talking to the girl. Cat was pretty certain it was Adelaide's father, by the look of it, so she didn't want to disturb them. Remembering that she was actually there to find robes herself, she walked up to a rack and began looking through the clothes.

As she had looked for a few seconds the stores door opening caught her attention, and looking over her shoulder she soon realised that it was her parents. The two looked around the store, her mother soon seeing her, and then they walked over to her.

"Hey honey, did things go well at Ollivander's?" her mother asked as she gave Cat a caring stroke over the cheek.
"Yes, I got my wand, Dragon heartstring and ebony." She answered happily and showed up the box to her parents. "And I made some new friends as well.." Cat added as she looked over at Giren and Zelric in one corner of the store, and Adelaide with her father in another.
"That's great, dear. We should always be friendly to everyone the first time you meet them." Cat's father said, and smiled proudly at her.
"Now, let's get them to sew up a robe for you" Her mother said and then lead up Cat to the woman that was the cause of the naming of the shop, and started talking with her. Catriona stood by as the two talked, and then when being told she got up on a small pedestal so that she could try on the robe, letting Madam Malkin hem it to fit her body perfectly. Cat was pretty certain the others would soon join her.

After speaking with Zelric, Giren returned to Seraph. "So which one is Madam Malkin?"
Seraph looked around the store briefly until he spotted her, "She's right over there."
"Thanks, looks like she's already working with someone, oh hey, it's Cat!"
Giren looked over at Madam Malkin who was just finishing up fitting Cat for her uniforms.
"Is this where we come for uniform fitting?" Giren asked.
"Indeed it is young man, I'll need to finish up with this young lady first, then I can get you all set."

Zelric saw Giren move away and got close to wait for his turn. He felt something in his pocket heat up and smiled pulling out a small round mirror with a metal border. The border was etched with a time and the name of the Leaky Cauldron, it seemed that his parents had arrived and would meet with him in a couple of hours. He guessed his uncle had got the message too. He watched silently as Cat was being fit.

Adelaide and her father looked around for a moment after they had finished looking at the rack they were standing at. "So, how'd the wand shopping go by the way?" Her father asked her softly as he looked around the store haphazardly as his daughter seemed to be shopping. It was a little odd not having her mother there, but Adelaide knew the rest of the family was a handful so she understood. Looking over at her father, she turned to face him and held up the little box that hasn't left her hands. "It went phenomenal! I'm so excited to start practicing with it, you have no idea!" She exclaimed quickly, it was very clear that the child was excited to learn more spells and incantations. Her father finally looked back at her and smiled kindly and nodded. "I'm not surprised at all, the whole family has a knack for wand use, I'm sure you will be extraordinary." His voice was quiet enough for her to hear and not let the whole store in on their conversation. She was looking at her box, who knows if she even heard his words. The Tanith family was usually a quiet family, so all the talk going on right now was surprising, but Adelaide and her father were truly the closest ones in the family. The two seemed to get along better than most of the other family members, and besides the closeness of the twins and themselves the family was usually separate and doing things on their own, only meeting for events or dinners and such in the immediate family.

Looking over at the little group surrounding the fitting area and seeing Cat on the pedestal she was a little irritated by the fact that she had to get fit, she hated the process. Noticing the two people around Cat she figured they were her parents, and she recognized Seraph and Giren standing there as well as Zelric. She noticed Zelric pull out a mirror from his pocket, and he seemed pleased with what he saw. Adelaide couldn't help but wonder what it was, fascinated with little things that are used in the magic world to communicate by spells and such. "Why don't we go over and get in the running for a fitting?" Hadrian said calmly as he placed a hand on her shoulder and started to guide her towards the others. Adelaide moved towards the small group again without little resistance, but that was mainly because she knew them, had it been strangers she would have protested more. As the two walked up to the little group she smiled a hello to the boys waiting and then looked over at Cat as she was getting fit. Hadrian stood behind his daughter a little as they made their way to the fitting station. He looked around the store after greeting everybody with a small smile and nod as a welcome much like his daughter had done with her new acquaintances.

Since Madam Malkin was used to doing the fitting, and of course used magic to speed the process up, it didn't take long for Cat to get finished. As both Malkin and her mother was pleased with the look of the robe, Cat was soon able to step down from the pedestal, going back to stand by her parents, as the adults spoke and paid the costs for the robes and other articles of clothing that Cat would need to have with her to school.

Cat's eyes wandered over the shop as her mother spoke prices, and she saw how all the other kids had joined up by the pedestal, waiting for their turn for fitting. She was aware that soon after her parents had paid for the things, her and her family would move on to the next store, or if they had gotten everything already, maybe even heading home.

But she hoped she would have time to say bye to her new friends before that.

After the fittings were done for everyone Giren wanted to say goodbye to his new friends but they were each with their families now and Seraph seemed to be rushing him out the door for some reason. (The appearance of Maxim Horvath was Seraph's reason)

"I didn't even get to say goodbye to my friends." Giren stated angrily as Seraph dragged him back towards the exit of Diagon Alley
"You'll see them at school, sorry, I need you to get back to the boarding house, I've got school business to attend to..." Seraph replied.
"But......" Seraph was gone before Giren could inquire as to how he was supposed to leave the alleyway. Fortunatelyhe was able to follow a few wizards who were going in the same direction as he was.

As summer came to a close Giren spent most of his time reading the books Seraph had lent him on Hogwarts and the history of magic, he also tried to get in some time with the books he had bought for class as well so he could see what he would be up against at Hogwarts. It was frustrating that Giren had no way of contacting his friends, due to Seraph's rush, so Giren simply looked forward to getting on the Express.

Finally the day came for the students to board the Hogwarts Express, and what a day it was, first Giren nearly forgot his wand, and to make matters worse the bus to the train station broke down. It didn't help that Seraph had to leave early to prepare for Hogwarts so Giren had nobody to instruct him on how students got to Hogwarts aside from a train station and platform location. By the time he got to the station Giren had to sprint to the platform to make it in time.
"Um...excuse me...all I see are full numbers, can you tell me where platform nine and three-quarters is?" Giren asked the nearby conductor.
"Listen kid, you got a little club or something? I get the same darned thing every year by a bunch o lil punks like you, think your being clever. Now scram before I call security and tell them we got a kid with no adults looking after him running around the station."

About this time Giren saw two robed figures leaving a nearby wall between platforms 9 and 10. He approached them. "Excuse me, where are you two from?" he asked.
The wizards looked a bit surprised. I told you to wait until the muggles weren't looking." The wife whispered to her husband.
"Um.. I'm no Muggle, I'm looking for the Hogwarts express." Giren stated.
"Why didn't you say so deary? first year I take it? No guardian to show you how it's done?" The wife asked.
"He had to leave early on business....so I'm a bit lost." Giren replied.
"Just go through the pillar, they say to do it in a bit of a run." the wife continued.
"Is it safe?" Giren asked.
"Of course! It's perfectly safe!" The Husband said in a chuckle.
"If you say so.. and thanks..." Gire replied.
"Good luck boy." The two stated before heading on their way.

Giren took his cart and closed his eyes as he ran towards the pillar.
He felt an odd sensation as he passed through the barrier.
He heard the train whistle and open his eyes. The train began to move now and Giren realized everyone was already aboard.
"I'm too late!" Giren exclaimed.
"You boy, hurry along, get in!" the conductor shouted.
Giren ran with his cart trying to grab the door where the conductor held open.
"No no, that wont work at all, you'll exhaust yourself carrying your things." The conductor flicked his wand, launching Giren's belongings into the rear car of the train. Giren made it to the door and the conductor helped him aboard. "We get a late one occasionally, glad you made it aboard, just find an empty compartment and have a seat."
"Thanks." Giren stated before going through the cars to find a seat. Since he was late almost all the compartments were taken.
"Ugh! I'm never going to find a seat on here!" Giren groaned as he continued to look around.

Zelric had been the last to get his fitting and went it was over his uncle had been there to take him to meet his parents. His uncle had paid for the robes and asked them to be sent home, they had to finish their shopping before Zelric's parents arrived so they had the afternoon free for any other activities together. Besides, Arcturus had things to attend to so he'd rather take Zelric with him instead of leaving him alone. It was safer that way... And Zelric didn't had that many galleons with him to buy everything that was missing in the list. The young Miras would have preferred to stay with his newfound friends, but he respected his uncle's decisions.


The end of the summer wouldn't arrive soon enough for Zelric. He was looking forward to potion's class and meeting again with Adelaide, Catriona and Giren. Perhaps they could be sorted into the same house, although he would still try to hang out with them if they weren't. It would just make things easier. He took the free time to read the potion's book they had bought and lightly over the rest of them, they weren't as interesting. At least not at the moment, since he couldn't try any of it.

They had arrived a week early to London so they could do some sightseeing and spend some time together before Zelric left for Hogwarts. He was wondering if he would miss his parents and relatives or if he would make (and keep) any friends at all. At least he had three acquaintances in the castle and in his same year, he wouldn't be too alone while he got used to others. Sharing rooms would be a new concept, maybe it would be fun.

He walked through the division between the platforms with some doubt, he knew that it should work so he wasn't worried, just doubtful. His parents usually apparated everywhere so he hadn't used the trains before. He had heard that there were some though. He looked around amazed by the amounts of students, luggage, pets and family that were on the platform. Everyone looked different and well...He was as selfconscious as he had felt in the Diagon Alley. He approached a cage with an owl and looked at Nozomi that was quite reluctant of being in her cage. He was behaving for the time being, but he'd rather release him and let him fly following the train than keep him cooped up in the cage.

He looked around to see if there was someone he met. They seemed to be there early but some were already going inside the train. He looked at his parents and smiled before offering each a hug and a kiss in the cheek. -I'll miss you, I'll try to write frequently.- He smiled and started heading towards the train, dragging his chest with his father, and noticed a familiar face. He left his chest and moved closer.

-Adelaide? It's me, Zelric, we met in the Diagon Alley. How are you?- He hoped she recognized and remembered him and after a while he introduced his parents briefly. There was enough time to board the train, which they did after some small talk.

Adelaide's fitting was quick, as the owner knew precisely what she was doing so very well. It was quick, and she was rushed into a goodbye from her father. They could both sense Nagendra's frustration somewhere in the alley with the twins and they knew they had to get there. It was sad to have to say goodbye to her new acquaintances but she knew that she might see them again soon at school. Rushing through the crowds behind her father she kept up easily, this was the pace of the Tanith family naturally. They were quick, quiet and some would say lethal. But, Adelaide wasn't aware of the dark history that supposedly sat in their family. Her father quickly found Nagendra and the twins. When Onyx and Theo saw her they were filled with joy and dropped the battle they seemed to be having with their mother and ran over to her, quickly embracing her in a welcoming hug. "We've missed you, Berry. But, I missed you more. Theo only cared about some stupid trick beans at Weasley's!" Onyx quickly chirped up to Adelaide as she stood looking down at them as their parents talked. "No! Liar. Don't lie Onyx, nobody likes liars!" Theo quickly blurted back at Onyx. Adelaide laughed at the two and shook her head. "I'm sure you both missed me equally. What ever are you two going to do without me when I go away to school?" She said kindly down at them. They all fell relatively quiet for a moment as if they had both realized that their precious older sister would be leaving for a long time. "Oh, I'll be back at holiday's!" Adelaide said quickly to reassure them.

Being saved by her parents who were done with the conversation they were having they looked back at the three children and smiled as they motioned for them to follow quickly. Rushing through the rest of their shopping the family returned home pretty smoothly after getting everything else that Adelaide needed for school. The next few weeks went by quickly, and then before she knew what happened it was the day to go to the train. Nagendra and Hadian were yelling for Adelaide to get ready and get in the kitchen for the past half hour, they weren't angry at first but their agitation was quickly growing. Finally Nagendra burst into her daughters room with a frightening wrath around her, "What are you doing? Have you become deaf overnight?" Her words flipped through the room quickly before she realized Adelaide was looking under her bed. "I'm sorry, mother. I'm looking for Leon, he's nowhere to be found. I don't see why I have to put him in a cage anyway." Adelaide responded quickly, her voice holding a stroke of worry and frustration as she stood up her hands on her hips looking at her mother for answers. "Leon in already ready in the kitchen, along with everything else, darling. C'mon." Her voice was kinder now and reassuring, knowing that her daughter was secretly nervous of the new experience laying ahead of her. Smiling embarrassed Adelaide followed her mother into the kitchen and was greeted by the twins again and walked over to Leon and pet him through the bars for a moment and then nodded to the rest of the family.

"We are going to be late. You women and your damn fidgeting." Hadrian whispered under his breath as the family flew through the train station. The females of the family laughed together at his comment, and Hadrian and Tobias raced ahead. The twins had stayed home, in fact causing some tensions as they said goodbye to Adelaide for a long time. It took them a while to finally release Adelaide and give her the ability to finally leave them for school. "But we are kind of... early, father." Adelaide said kind of quickly. His eyes flashed back to his daughter and then back to the path ahead of them. Over the summer she had played with her new found wand and she was quite happy to be going to school and being able to actually learn more about everything. She had read some books over the summer of wand-use and the mechanics behind it all, but she still couldn't wait to get into school. Almost running into her father and brother she looked up quickly and looked at the wall that was in front of them. Confused she looked at her mother and brother who were standing a little agitated now by the hold up. They looked at Hadrian and Adelaide and gave a little nod and walked quickly through the wall. Adelaide had done this before, but this time it was different. "It's better to show up early than late. The early bird gets the worm, darling." Her father said to her quietly and then pushed her forward a little bit softly. "It's like every other time, but this time it's for you. Be happy, walk briskly. Take a deep breath." He pushed her softly again and then soon they were through the wall.

Looking around she watched her brother wish them a farewell and join his own friends and then disappear among the crowd. They were early, and it was clear they were. Sighing she looked up to her parents. "So, I guess this is it?" She said with a little grin. Her parents nodded and then took her into an embrace. As she stepped back from the odd public affection again, she heard her name. Looking over confused she quickly recognized Zelric and gave him a welcoming smile and a small wave. "Hey, Zelric! I'm great, how are you?" She replied quickly. She was surprisingly happy to see someone she knew. The pleasantries between the families went smoothly. A little odd to be introducing parents already, but it was funny to Adelaide. After a few minutes of small talk it was time to go in the train. Her parents quickly wished her good luck and watched their daughter board the train. "So... where do you want to sit?" She asked with a little laugh as she walked down the aisle and then looked back at him with a smile awaiting an answer. Not that it really mattered where they sat, it would be easy enough to find an empty section and hopefully even Cat and Giren would be able to find them, but who knew.

It had seemed that all of the other kids and there respective families also had to hurry of to diffrent places after they were fitted, so Cat said a quick goodbye to them all. She wasn't to disappointed in the departure, because she knew she would soon see them all at the school, or the trainride there, and that was good enough for her right now. The Merden family had finished up their errands and then gone home once again. But alone at home again, Cat couldn't help but to wish that next few weeks would go by quick, so she could see the others again.

And the weeks did fly by quickly, and soon it was the morning that the long awaited train ride would take part. The Merden house was in full movement. Catriona was moving around in her room, packing together the last things she would need in her trunk, when a sudden knock was heard on the door and her father opened the door.
"Cat, sweetie, there is an emergence at St. Mungo's, some spell that went wrong and created a explosion and I have been called in to work. I'm so sorry, dear but I can't follow you to see you off at the station. I hope you can forgive me."
Cat looked up at her dad.
"Dad, I know that your work is more important. It's okay, I'm not mad at you." Her father smiled at her as he walked up to her and gave her a huge hug, stroking her over the hair.
"I love you dad."
"I love you too, Kitty Cat." After that he let her go and walked out of her room, and a few seconds later she heard the poof sound that disappearing made.

An hour or so later, Cat was pushing a trolley with a large coffert in front of her. Her mother, Adrianna, was walking besides her. A soft hoot was heard, and Cat reached forward to poke her finger through the bars of the cage on top of the coffert to gently stroke the feathers of the great horned owl inside them. "It's okay Keelin, I'll let you out when we get on the train."
"Come on honey, we have to move a little quicker so that we don't miss the train." With that the two speed up to a little faster walk.
"Oh here we are, turn towards that wall, Cat. And remember, courage and a little speed helps." Her mother lay her hand on Cat's shoulder, and the two jogged the short distance to the wall, and then through it. Behind the hidden gateway, platform nine three quarters was pretty crowded. Parents and siblings to the students was everywhere, but almost all students was already on the train. Cat's mother gave her a quick hug, and looked at her with a teary eyed smile.
"Go on darling, you need to get on the train. I'll miss you. And write as often as you can."
"I will mom. Bye."

Cat hurried to the closest car, where a conductor was standing by an open door.
"You are just in time, miss, we are just about to go. Here let me put in that coffert in the back." With a flick off his wand the conductor lifted away the coffert. Cat did just have time to take a hold of the owlcage, she wanted to bring that with her. She got into the door, and on the train, moving down the train looking for an empty compartment. Just as had reached the next car, a loud whistle was heard, and Cat had to put one foot back for balance as the train started moving. She stopped in her moves and looked out the window to her side. Outside the station was rolling pass her, families waving to their loved ones on the train. Cat watched them roll by until the station suddenly disappeared.

"Ugh! I'm never going to find a seat on here!" Giren groaned as he continued to look around.
Cat had to turn her head around as the familiar voice was heard. As she saw the source of the voice, her face lit up in a smile.
"Giren! Hey! It's me, Cat." She said as she waved to the boy further back in the car, looking a bit frustrated. As he came closer to her she smiled again.
"Are you looking for a compartment as well? Most of them are already full. Maybe we can look together?"

Giren smiled when he finally noticed a familiar face aboard the train "Oh, hey, long time no see, Seraph rushed me off before I could say goodbye before, glad we ran into each other again, I wonder if Adelaide and Zelric found a place already." Giren replied as he looked through the compartment doors to check for any empty seats.

Finally he came across the Compartment where Zelric and Adelaide were seated. "Room for 2 more?" he asked with a smirk.

Zelric blushed slightly after a comment from his father about introducing them to his new friend, and was as slightly uncomfortable about it when they found an empty compartment and entered. He moved towards the window with a backpack on his shoulder which he hurried to throw on the shelf on top of the seats. He sat and opened Nozomi's cage and the window to let the falcon stretch her wings just as the train started to move. -Be careful, don't go too far of the train. I'll try to leave the window open...- He saw him fly away and looked back at Adelaide.

-Sorry, he hates having to be in the cage but my father said it would look odd in the muggle station if I didn't.- He smiled slightly an sat back, looking out the window. -I've never been too far from home...not for so long.- He mused looking at the people go by and again returned his attention towards Adelaide. He was going to add something else when he heard a familiar voice and looked at Catriona and Giren on the door. -Hi! Sure, I was hoping we could meet in the train.- He smiled and made a gesture towards the open seats, it was nice to have met with the three of them.

Adelaide offered a small smile as they found a compartment quickly. Watching him put his bag away reminded herself of the bag over her shoulder, which she quickly stowed away. Sitting opposite him by the window, "Yay, window seat!" She said with a little laugh as she watched the Nozomi fly out the window and listened to Zelric's warnings of not flying too far away. The creature captivated her a little, and she watched him fly away into the freedom of the air. Turning to her side she opened Leon's cage and let him out, "Sorry buddy, I had to put ya in there for a bit." He stretched and walked out and curled into a ball against Adelaide's leg on the seat. Turning her attention to Zelric as he spoke to her she nodded. "Yes, I understand. Leon here doesn't like cages much himself." She said as she ran her hand along Leon who started to purr slightly as he dozed off into sleep. The cat was small, and she was surprised that she had her own feline. Almost everyone from the house had shared; Hadrian and Nagendra shared one, Onyx and Theo shared one, so Adelaide was naturally expecting to share a messenger with Tobias. But, one day she was walking through Diagon Alley with her family shopping for Tobias, when she heard the tiniest cries from the tiniest kitten she'd ever seen hiding in a dark corner all alone. She had fallen in love quickly and begged her parents to take him home throughout the rest of the day until they finally folded an allowed her to bring him home and into the family.

Realizing her mind was wandering away towards other things than the current situation she looked back into the compartment from the window at Zelric, listening to what he said. Nodding she smiled and pondered her own life for a moment. "I guess I really haven't either..." Her voice trailed off, thinking about if the fact that she wasn't with her family at all for the first six years of her life counted or not. "So, I guess we will just embark on the adventure together." She said with a little more of a chipper attitude and smiled as she looked back to Zelric. Hearing the familiar voice and Zelric's welcome she looked over at Cat and Giren. With a warm, welcoming smile she waved kindly and nodded at Giren's comment. "Oh coarse we have room. How nice to see you two again, I was hoping we would all run into each other again." She said with a smile as she picked up Leon and placed him on her lap, making more room in the seat next to her as she watched them enter the compartment. There was enough for all of them, and she was relieved that two strangers hadn't tried to come and sit in the compartment.

Cat was glad that Giren seemed to recognize her just as she had did him. As he went of looking through the remaining compartments she followed after him. It didn't take long until he pulled open a door. Looking into it behind him as he talked, she noticed that it was Adelaide and Zelric in the compartment, and smiled to them. It was nice to see that all of them seemed to be considering eachother as friends, it would be nice to know somebody as the got to the school.

When they were invited in Cat smiled again, and made her way to the seat next to Adelaide, where she just picked up a cat, presumably hers, from the seat. Cat sat down and placed the owlcage she was still caring besides her on the seat.

"It's nice that we all seemed to bump into eachother again." She said, smiling at the three of them. Then a soft hoot was heard, and Cat's attention turned to Keelin.

"There there, girl, I didn't forget about you." She talked calmly to the owl as her hands moved to the cage to open the cage door, and then letting the hornowl move over to her arm. From there she lift down the cage on the floor and moved her arm with the owl now on, so that Keelin could take a seat on the arm of the seat instead. Cat did like having her beloved owl on her arm, but since Keelin was a very big owl, having her there for the whole trainride would be quite exhausting.

"So have you guys been getting ready for Hogwarts? Giren asked. "I've been looking over our books and it's deffinetly more interesting than muggle school."

As Giren took a seat a woman came by with a cart full of various candies.
"What'll you have dearies?" she asked.
Giren looked a bit confused at first though his attention was drawn by a small box that contained a chocolate Frog.
"I'll have one of those and some Jelly Beans." He stated, handing the vendor coins for the purchase.

Zelric watched Adelaide take the seat opposite of him, and take her cat out. He looked at it with mild interest while she explained that he didn't like cages either. Leon, he tried to commit the name to memory so he wouldn't have to ask again, although it was likely that he'd forget it. He heard her reply about his musings of their trip, it would be an exciting experience, or so he hoped. He smiled and nodded. "Yes, I guess we will."

He moved slightly closer to the window so Cat or Giren would be able to sit comfortably next to him and once the seat was taken he could take up some more space. "I'm glad too, it is great to see you three again." He saw Cat take her owl out and glanced outside the window, Nozomi wasn't within his line of sight. He wasn't much concerned though. "I think I managed to get everything they asked for in the list and I read the potion's book. The others as well, but I only looked over them. I usually don't have to study much, so I thought I'd rather leave that for when I actually have to." He shrugged and saw the car with sweets arrive. He asked politely for a three chocolate frogs and a box of jelly beans like Giren had and opened one of the frogs. "Hopefully it isn't repeated.." He mused as he read the collectible card and stored in his pocket. He bit the frogs head off before it had time to escape. "Be careful and don't let it sit for too long after opening it. They have a knack for trying to escape...." He didn't knew if he had tried them before or not, but he remembered he didn't knew much about magic stuff. As for the jelly beans, he thought it would be more interesting to let him discover that they were really of any possible flavor.

Adelaide watched as the other two got situated, her eyes flicking between the two as they talked and she offered up a smile or two herself. Her green eyes wandered to Cat and her owl as she released it from it's own enclosure, smiling faintly as they all seemed to have a fondness for their own pets. Although, Adelaide herself was never really into the whole owl thing, she understood the reasons behind it and didn't really care weather or a not a person used an owl, rat, cat, bat, whatever fit their fancy really. "Kind of funny, actually, how we all seem to run into each other." Adelaide mused, kind of to herself, but it was an amusing fact that they all must have realized. After all, it was nice to be walking into the new school with some people that she had already met and become acquainted and more comfortable with. Trying to think over the books she had read, it wasn't too hard they all had to do with wand lore and the like. Listening to Zelric and Giren explain their readings over the last few weeks she smiled and chuckled a little to herself and Giren's comments of being more interesting than muggle school. Of course it will be... it's magic! she thought enthusiastically, but to herself as she didn't want to seem mean or cruel. "I've read through some books myself, mostly just scanning through them. Only really read the ones about wand lore, or anywhere where it was discussed, really." She admitted cheerfully to the rest of them, a blur of facts buzzing through her head as she thought about the readings for a moment.

Hearing the lady with the cart come traipsing by and offer the goodies from her cart she grinned and watched the boys take and pay for what they wanted, and she thought for a moment. Shrugging she took a frog as well, why not? Adelaide wasn't a big snack eater, and candy wasn't her idea of a good snack, but, she did often enjoy the cards that came with the frogs. Quickly biting into the frog she heard Zelric's warning to Giren and grinned a little cynically, almost hoping he didn't head the warning. Noticing he had bought the jelly beans also, and that Zelric hadn't warned him about those, the grin remained upon Adelaide's lips, but she kept her head down for a moment examining her card. Tucking the card away she shrugged as it was a repeat, and looked at the others. Glancing over at the owl again, she returned her hand to Leon in her lap, and then out the window. One thing she never knew, or cared to ask anybody in her family was exactly how long the train ride was. Pushing the thought away she looked back at Giren, not wanting to miss it when he opened the box of jelly beans and dried them for the first time. Finding it surprisingly interesting to have someone not so acquainted with the magical world around, realizing it would be a little refreshing.

Catching his frog in mid-jump, Giren ate it and looked at hid card, rather confused.
"Seraph Almsay...born 1121, an apprentice of Merlin and known as one of the 4 captors of the witch Morgan Le Faye.... It can't be, but the card looks just like him....."

Giren opened his bag of Bertie Bott's and popped a bean in his mouth which he almost spit out immediatly.
"This thing tastes like shit!" she sputtered. He looked at Cat who was sitting across from him. "Sorry I almost spit on you....so they really do come in EVERY flavor...."

Cat listened to the others talk about the books, taking in what everyone had been reading or looking through. She had just glanced through some, while she had really gotten into some of the others. Her favorite so far was the one about transfiguration, and she had even tried on some of the beginner spells in it already. She was pretty certain that was gonna be her favorite subject in the school.

When the lady with the candy car, she lightened up. Letting the others go first, she saw Giren by chocolate frogs and Bertie Bott's, as did Zelric, and Adelaide bought just frogs. Cat had been a bit hungry, and decided to by a cauldron cake as well as two chocolate frogs. She paid the lady, and then looked over at the others.

Cat took a bit of the cauldron cake, and looked over at the others. She noticed that Giren was in the process of opening the bag of beans, and as he put a brown one in his mouth, Cat almost had a sense that it wouldn't be good.  And sure enough, just as he had put it in, he suddenly spit it out, almost over a Cat who was sittin right across from him. But Cat couldn't help but to smile knowingly as he apologized.

"It's okay Giren, I know how bad Bertie Bott's can be. I have never eaten them since I got a vomit flavoured on when I was 6."

Zelric waited for Giren to taste Bertie Bott's beans before chuckling and opening his own pack while starting to sort out a few of them. He knew a few of the  color patterns for the awful tastes, although maybe not all of them. It was all about luck after all. He'd hate to have to buy some after being bitten by a Mackled Malaclaw or while under any other bad luck inducing situation. He hoped he wasn't mad about the situation. -It is mostly about luck, although some of the tastes always have the same colors...usually, I've had surprises when sorting them. Sorry about not giving you a heads up.- He smiled and looked out the window, wondering how long would the train take to reach the college.

Adelaide's eyes were sadly distracted at the tree's passing by them at an alarming rate. It always surprised her how fast a machine could move, and today was no different. But, her attention was drawn back to Giren as he had spat out an ill flavored bean and couldn't help but emit a quiet giggle of amusement. Her eyes sparkled with satisfaction and she looked to Cat she explained her own experience and nodded, she couldn't even imagine having such a flavor in her mouth. Looking over at Zelric as he explained how it was all mostly luck no matter how skilled one can be at sorting the colors out she nodded in agreement and then realized she, too, had kept her warning silent. But, it was all in good manor and she didn't feel a real urgency to apologize for anything at the moment, or in the future for that moment. "Yes, I've found it amusing watching my younger siblings go through their shares of disgusting flavors. But, them being young they find it hilarious tricking people into eating the nasty flavors. I've never tried them myself, and I don't fancy trying one any time soon." She said with a little grin as she looked at Giren, and then down at Leon as she finished her words.

Looking out the window for a moment, her mind went to other places for a moment again. The books she had read and skimmed over had excited her, and she had kept one with her in the bad she had placed in the storage above them. For a moment she thought about bringing it down and showing the rest of them an interesting spell she had found, or maybe even performing one she had been messing around with mastering over the last few weeks. But, in the end she decided not to. Bringing her eyes back into the compartment they occupied she looked over at Cat's owl and realized she never understood the fascination for owls. They always seemed angry, or surprised, or lonely. There was no moment in her life that she had ever seen an owl seem particularly happy. She's seen dumb ones and smart ones... but never one that emitted a sense of true happiness. But, she couldn't blame the creature, it was just the way they were built. Still, they were marvelous creatures, but she preferred the feline in her lap. Zelric's animal was very interesting, though, something she had never seen before. "So, does anybody know exactly how long this train ride is to get to Hogwarts?" Adelaide asked as she looked around between all of them for an answer.

"Wow! is that it!?" Giren exclaimed as he looked out the window at the castle they were approaching.

As they arrived at the station Giren eagerly wanted to get off and look around but they were stuck behind a large crowd of all the other students.

A familiar face showed up to greet the students once outside. "I need all first years to come with me please." Hagrid ordered with a kind smile.
"We met him at Malkin's!" Giren said happily as he took the lead of the quartet in following Hagrid.

It was dusk when they arrived, or so Zelric thought. -A few hours but here we are- Maybe it was just dark due to the weather. He leaned towards the windows as Giren had, looking at the towering castle away from them. Calculating the distance was hard, but he guessed it must be quite big or not that far away, it was likely to be the second from what he had been told about the college. He rushed to take his bag from the overhead compartment and Nozomi's cage, he hoped he could leave the second with his luggage if he found it.  -Let's go outside, hopefully we can stay together...- He mused waiting for the others so they could leave the compartment together.

He saw the crew of the train piling up their belongings and managed to tie loosely Nozomi's cage to his trunk. He saw Hagrid over the students and glanced at the others before heading that way. He moved tot ake his trunk but someone assured him that it would be taken care of. He shrugged, giving it some doubt, but decided that it would be better to trust than drag the trunk around. He moved closer to Hagrid, while trying to keep tabs on the others. Not an easy task with all the students.
