"Yes Dad I will, I promise!" I respond, hugging him tightly around the stomach. If he thinks that I'm going to forget about him just because I'm going to a boarding school is not smart of him.
"See you at Christmas!" I say as Dad hugs me once more and walks off to find the car.
Okay, what's my platform again? I think as I look down at my ticket. Nine and... three quarters?! What... Okay Aspen, use your head... If there is a platform nine and three quarters, it would be three quarters between nine and ten, right? Okay, so let's go there.
I walk to platform nine and I look for an extra platform. I don't find one. I huff a little bit and sit on a nearby bench.
It was a hoax. I think. Somebody's playing a massive prank on me. I bet they're watching me and laughing right now.
There was someone laughing, but not at me, I come to realize. It was a girl and her mother joking about something or other. I'm watching them approach the wall in-between platforms nine and ten, and they just walk right through the bricks.
What?! I get up from my bench and go over to the wall. I slowly stick my hand out as I walk closer and closer to the wall. My hand starts to disappear and I gasp.
"This is crazy!"
"I know right?" Somebody says behind me.
