Compartment 7  Finished 

Eris was in a giddy state seeing all the candy and Ava again. Thank god she was safe, and after thanking Ava profusely, she had ran towards the trolley and was looking through all the candy, and shoved as much of it as she could into her mouth. "I've never had seen so much candy!" Eris said after a while, grinning to expose chocolate stained teeth. When the candy haze finally died off, Eris wiped her hands on her muggle clothes to get rid of the stains--after all she wouldn't be wearing them for a long time--and hopped on top of her seat to reach her trunk. T

he small girl puffed and puffed all she could, and finally the trunk fell to the floor with a heavy crash. Looking around, and seeing Kaegen effortlessly grab the other trunk, Eris's face flushed red. "Sorry." She said to no one in particular, feeling guilty for the crashing noise.

Eris knelt down on the floor, opening her trunk and pulling out her robes. She couldn't help smiling, remembering the day she had gotten them and how she had met Adam and Ava. Eris held up the robes than kicked the open trunk into the corner. She was not moving that up again.

Thankfully, nothing terrible had befallen Avalon. Adam was surprised to learn that she had bought the entire trolley and lugged it back to the compartment herself. While he was extremely grateful, he was also a little bit disappointed — there was no way he was going to be able to pay her back now. He had tried to reassure Eris that Ava’s disappearance wasn’t her fault, and the redhead seemed to feel a bit better after Avalon returned, but had a feeling that something deeper had caused this reaction. He’d have to see if she would be willing to talk about it later.

He’d learned the new girl’s name, Eri, and he’d learned something else about her too. She was apparently able to and willing to cast a spell before even arriving at the school! She summoned the other boy’s strange wooden ball to her lap, and the others looked on in amazement. Adam began to feel a bit of distrust regarding the two newest additions to the compartment. He didn’t even know the boy’s name!

Before Adam’s mind could run away with this idea any more, Michelle suggested that they had better get into their robes, and Adam agreed. He hadn’t realized how close to the school they had actually gotten! Everyone agreed that it was probably time to change, and Ava politely asked Adam and the other boy to change somewhere else. Adam nodded and turned to the door, but to his surprise the other boy just slipped his robes on over his Muggle outfit. Amused, Adam watched him slide Ava’s trunk down from the overhead compartment and raised his eyebrow. “Alright, come on,” Adam said to him. “We still need to give these girls a little privacy.”

Placing his hand on the doorframe, about to head back into the train corridor, he turned to the girls and said, “Don’t get into any trouble while we’re gone.” He winked and laughed, and making sure the other boy was following, set out back into the train.

Everyone seemed to agree it was time to change into their robes and when the Adam and the other boy left she pulled down her trunk and rifled through to get her robes. She finally found them and changed quickly, a little shy to change in front of others, although they probably didn't see anything.

As she changed into her robes reality started to set in a little. She really was going to a magic school, on a magic train, with other magical kids and it was slightly overwhelming. She was going to a place she barely had any knowledge of, so it's safe to say she was grateful for the others she met on the train she was feeling less of an outcast.

She stuffed her muggle clothes back in her trunk and locked it up. She heaved it back into the cargo space and sat down with a huff, she had no idea why her trunk was so heavy. With every passing minute, her belly filled with more and more butterflies. "I am so excited, the wizard who picked me up said there would be a great feast," she exclaimed. She wondered if there would be any meals that were magical like the treats.

Eris hummed as she pulled on her robes in the corner, away from everyone else. She really didn’t feel comfortable changing. When she finally finished, Eris threw her muggle clothes into her truck then for the fun of it, hopped up ontop of her truck and started jumping on it to close it. Eris stared down at her robes as she jumped. They were fitted to her but were still a bit too large for eris’s extremely small build. It was either too big robes or children’s robes, and Eris did not want children’s robes. She was 11 after all and that was practically grown up.

Hopping off her truck, Eris looked around the compartment an idea forming in her head. She kept searching the cabin, looking for hiding spots. “What if we hide from the boys when they come back in?” Eris voiced out loud, still searching for hiding spots. Maybe they could climb up and hide in the over head luggage rack and jump out and scare Adam. She would pay good money to see Adam scared. Eris did love to prank people, but was it okay to prank your friends? Eris really didn’t have a clue about what you were supposed to do with friends.

Adam had found an empty space to change into his school robes and now threw them on, making sure everything looked relatively neat and presentable. He turned to Kaegen, who hadn’t needed to change, and exclaimed, “Look at us! We’re real Hogwarts students now.” Glancing out the window and the passing hills and fields, he checked his reflection once more and then realized that he still knew next to nothing about the dark-haired not boy in his compartment.

“You know, I never found out what your name was,” he continued. “Or rather, you never told me what your name was. While Adam was glad to simply have the opportunity to make so many friends and acquaintances in the first place, it didn’t mean that he didn’t care who they were. Ava and Eris had proven themselves to be nice and trustworthy enough, and Michelle was well on her way, but he was still mostly in the dark about Eri and this boy. He didn’t know how he should feel about them, or how they felt about him. The only thing he knew was that they seemed to be fairly practiced in spellwork already.

He waited for the other boy to answer and thought about what he would do when they got to Hogwarts. He wasn’t sure if it was still traditional for first-years to approach the school by boat, but he kind of hoped so. It would be an incredible experience. They had to be getting close by now, so Adam assumed he’d find out soon enough. For now, he could focus in on the mysterious first-year standing next to him.

Michelle observes Eris jumping up and down on her trunk and giggled, that girl sure was fun. When Eris suggested they prank the boys Michelle's eyes widened with excitement. She loved pranking others especially her older brothers, they are probably why she likes pranking as much as she does. "That sounds like a great idea!" she stood up and started searching around for a hiding space.

The excitement bubbling in her chest reminded her of when she used to play hide and go seek when there were only a few seconds left and she still hadn't found a space to hide. "Hey, Eris your pretty small so you might be able to fit in the overhead space... and ill put your robe in front of you so they can't see!" She exclaimed pointing to an empty spot.

Michelle continued to search around when she saw a small spot between the seat and door to the compartment if she could squeeze in there and have something on top of her then she wouldn't be seen. "I think Ill hide here, and I'd just need my robe to go on top of me," she explained what she was going to do with a few little gestures. This was gonna be so funny!

That boy was asking for his name... Kaegen thought a bit about it, names were interesting, weren't they. A bunch of sound that symbolized who a person was. If his name changed, would he?
"Deathmote, Kaegen Deathmote." That was how father said he should introduce himself. The family came first, then him. Kaegens eyes kept flashing about. They never did seem to stay still. It was the polar opposite of his body. Like some else's eyes trapped in the smoothly flowing body. He wondered if the boy who asked his name was trying to get conversation started or something. Should Kaegen have said more, something to go off of? He kept scanning everything around him as he found something to ask the boy. "What do you think of the girls in the compartment" His voice sounded so distant, a breeze that had gotten lost and somehow wandered past the ears of the other boy next to him. Kaegen loved labeling things, then discovering he was wrong and relabeling. It was a hobby he had back in the fens and it was carrying over. He thought the smart girl was powerful, but a bit too confident. She would not be hard to beat, if it came to that. He wasn't sure about the other girls, so he thought the boy might have been doing the same. They seemed nice though, probably not a threat. He was just being paranoid. He made a resolve to less paranoid. After he got sorted, of course.

Eri watched the other two curiously as they hid. "Seriously hideing. I'm just going to walk around." Eri stands up and gathers her books and walks out of the compartment and stands a little far away from the door and opens her book and begins to read her book waiting for the boys to return and get scared. She smiled reading her book feeling the rythmic movement of the train over the tracks. They should be at hogwarts very soon.


She walked over to the window and gazed out at the beautiful sight. She could see hogwarts in the distance. 

She thought she could here the boys coming back and smiled. She wasn't going to spoil the suprise for them. She smiled at the window. She could see the beautiful castle in tge distance all lit up by candles. She couldn't believe she  was going to the mystical school of hogwarts. Her aint had said so many good words about this place. She could see the great lake and she marvled at the site.

She went back to read her book and await the train to arrive at hogwarts. She git sucked into her book again but smiled. this would be an interesting year.

Kaegen's eyes flashed over to the girl sitting in the corridor. That was the confident one... Why was she out here? Did the other girls kick her out? Was she not fitting in? She wasn't really talking before, so he didn't think it was a problem with fitting in. What then? It was an unanswered question, and one that made Kaegen uneasy. The compartment was a lot more comfortable, and all the treats were there too. This was a problem.
But no, maybe she just didn't like the girl's company, they could have just been bugging her. He was probably worried over nothing. He didn't know how people acted, maybe they all did that.
He started humming the broken tune again, it helped him calm down. And if people weren't paying attention they wouldn't even hear it. It was far too quiet to actually interrupt anyone. He wish he knew how to conjure up some thick mist. That would be so nice right now. Some cold mist. He was pretty hot. The fens were often cold, and he was used to it. Maybe he shouldn't have just put his robe over his clothes. But he had his things hidden in his clothes, and it wouldn't do to have everyone see them, would it? Well, there was probably no harm. They were all tools anyway. He was just worried. Far, far too worried.

"Kaegen. I like it. Ready to go, Kaegen?" He didn't wait for an answer, stowing his Muggle clothes in his carry-on bag and slinging it over his shoulder. He set off down the hallway back towards their compartment, passing a few students lounging against the walls and eating snacks from the trolley. Kaegen seemed a bit distracted, letting his eyes wander down the corridor and focusing in on one girl in particular, but Adam didn't pay much attention. All of their compartment-mates were still in their room, as far as he knew. Kaegen was humming a strange tune, broken up and mystic-sounding. It was quiet, barely loud enough to be noticeable, but Adam had a good ear for detail. He decided not to bring it up, for fear of putting off the dark-haired boy, but instead filed it away in his mind for later.

Approaching Compartment 7, he noticed that the door had been left slightly ajar. It was probably a normal thing, but Adam couldn't help but remember something from the Muggle horror movies that his father had introduced his family to last year. Feeling a sudden sense of suspicion, he held up his hand to signal to Kaegen, and drew his wand from his pocket. It was a beautiful thing, an elegant silvery-white color, twenty-four centimeters long and made of cherry wood with a unicorn hair core. He had already felt his connection with the wand forming from the day he had picked it up from Ollivanders', and although he could barely cast a Levitating Charm, he felt safer having it in his hand. Moving forward slowly, he pushed the door to the compartment further open and hesitantly called, "Hello?"

She sat down in the corridor and clutched her golden locket and started to cry. She felt home sick and never went anywhere without her aunt. She just felt so vulnerable without her aunt there to help guide her through her socially awkwardness. She just wanted to talk to her aunt. She sat deep in thought tears falling silently down her face. She put her book in front of her face to hide her tears not knowing the boys were behind her. She sat in silence trying not to give her emotions away to anyone who might be around watching.

She looked out the window frim her seat on the floor. This would truly be a great experience for her studies to inprove. She really wanted to be here and all the studying she did at home would be for nothing if she gave up and went home. She stared out the window watching the beautiful scenery change before her eyes as she tried to not get homesick. She never liked to cry. She definately hated crying in public places where people would be able to see her in her weakened state. This is definatly not how she wanted to start the year.

Kaegen followed behind the boy, to the compartment. Off, something was off, what was off. He was getting a bad feeling, but wasn't sure why. Was it a smell, a sound? When the boy held up his hand, Kaegen totally missed the point and gave the back of the hand a soft high five. His grandfather had told him stories about kids, he knew about high fives. It meant that they won, right?
Kaegen slipped past the boy like a piece of silk and froze in the room. Everything was signalling trap. A closed room, one exit plus a window. There used to be people in here why were there no... Time seemed to slow down. It was a trap. He could hear soft breathing, people breathed like that when they were hiding. Waiting to pounce. What had happened and where were the girls? Then it hit him. The girls were dead. They were next. He pushed them from his mind. He would not be scared. He would NOT be scared. This was just like the magical creatures he would deal with back home. Just like them. Kaegen did several things at once, reaching behind him he slammed the door shut in front of the boy and then leapt clear across the compartment. For the window. He was panicking at this point, and fumbled out his wand. He had bought the other boy some time but what about him? This would have to work, it had to.

Michelle had hidden in the small space in the compartment and tossed her robe over her to conceal her better. She giggled softly to herself and slowed her breathing as to not be heard and waited. 

This was her least favourite part of the game, the anticipation. It had you wondering what was gonna happen how would the other person react? Would they jump but laugh good-naturedly or be upset you had scared them. She hoped it wasn't the latter she never intended to harm or upset anyone, she hoped this would go well. 

When she heard footsteps outside the door she went silent. She heard a cautious "Hello?" from what she thought was Adam and got ready to spring out, but there was some commotion and she heard the door slam and heavy breathing.

Michelle was confused, nothing had happened yet but she decided it was better not to jump out anymore and got up cautiously taking the robe off her head. She saw the quiet dark-haired boy, she wondered what was wrong, he was standing panicked with his wand out. "Are you alright? Sorry if we upset you we just wanted to prank you lot, " she explained holding her hands up in defense. She wondered why he freaked out.

Too slow, he was too slow! A robe moved by one of the compartments. Why was this happening? He had to do something! He was only 11 and he had never fought people before. He didn't even know any offensive spells! What good was he? If he went back to the door he could probably get out but that would lead them to the boy, and Kaegen doubted that the boy could defend himself.
The only thing he could think of doing at the time was to throw his wand, so throw it he did. As it left his finger tips the girl poked her face out. He almost had a heart attack. The wand luckily did not hit point first, but bounced off of the girl's forehead anyway. Kaegen collapsed on the floor. What had he done? He had heard of pranks from grandfather but had never seen one before... And now that girl got hit with his wand because of his inexperience. Why hadn't he stayed calm? At least he hadn't thrown his knife. He hadn't wanted to kill whoever was there, in case he was wrong. Unfortunately that foresight wasn't heeded any more than that. The girl had seemed nice, too. This stupid train had hit him with more bad luck than was his fair share, he should have gone with grandfather to the village occasionally. But he had always been too nervous. The acid salamanders were so much safer, anyway. He wasn't sure how he would apologize. His lack of experience with people was hardly a good excuse.
Feeling pretty miserable about the whole thing, Kaegen mumbled out "Sorry about that."
And then stopped moving in a pile on the floor, trying to calm down his heart, which was doing a pretty good impression of a hummingbird's wings.

"What the bloody he--" cried Adam as Kaegen went springing past him. The door slammed shut, and Adam blinked a few times, utterly confused. What on Earth was he doing? Catching the eye of Eri sitting down the corridor, he shouted, "Hey! Eri! Come help me!" He noticed that it looked like she had been crying. He'd have to find out why later, and figure out how to help her feel better. Positioning his wand at the door, he waited until Eri looked like she was ready and put his hand on the door. He hoped this wasn't causing a commotion in any of the other compartments. As much as Adam loved social interaction, unwanted attention was very rarely a good thing. He looked back into Eri's eyes and whispered, "Ready?"

Adam had heard of the Battle of Hogwarts and the rule of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. His father had fought in the battle, never encountering any major threats, but helping to beat back some of the beasts that threatened the castle. His mother had been a bit too young to stay and help out, and she was ushered to safety along with most of the rest of the lower year students. Adam couldn't imagine what it would be like to run through the castle, seeing people you knew fall in front of you, seeing the great building crumble. "On the count of three," he muttered. "One.....two......three!"
