Steam billowed as the Hogwarts Express came to a full stop, and soon the mass of children and parents alike began fumbling about chaotically. Many were rushing to enter the train and reserve a compartment for themselves, while others tried saying their final goodbyes to dear family and friends.
Kira gathered up her belongings and bid her goodbyes to her mother with a small, one armed hug. Khloe gave a curt nod, those faded silver eyes flashing Kira a message, as if to say, "Do not fail me."
Kira gave her mother a small smile, her lips barely tugging upwards, and the smile somehow unable to reach her peacock blue eyes. She turned away and entered the train without another look back.
