AGENTS OF MAGIC – HOGWARTS YEAR 5: FRIENDS AND OTHER STRANGERS 1.62

Orlando year 6 avie1Foozle sat beneath the yellow stone gargoyle that sat at the corner. Several first and second year Gryffindors shuffled by him, mostly making no notice of him. A good share of them were staring most intently on a rolled up piece of enchanted parchment, their faces contorted in thought. The Hufflepuff smiled and took his wand a folded piece of parchment of his own. As he unfolded it appeared as nothing special, just a blank piece of old paper. With a brief look about him, he tapped the tip of his wand against it.

“A solemnly swear that A am up to nae good.” His lopsided grin drew higher as inky black lines bled out all across the page, connecting to form the intricate halls of Hogwarts castle. He looked down at its center, reading the two words that sat there against the wall...

Céilidh year 6 avie1“MacAllister,” Melissa Upton called out as Céilidh stepped from the car, “I need you to help escort the first years across the lake.”

“Uh, sure Mel, no problem,” Cee replied. She stole a glance at the rest of her friends as they made their way toward the carriages, a look that was not missed by the Head Girl.

“Sorry, Cee,” Mel said, clapping her on the shoulder, “I know it’s a suck duty, but I really need your help on this one.”

Céilidh shrugged and gave Mel a half-smile and headed off to the sound of Hagrid’s booming voice calling for all the first year students to gather around him. The wide-eyes youths clustered about the gigantic man in awed silence. “Now don’ be worry’n aboot yer bags, they’ll be makin’ their way to the castle their own way...

Tommy year 6 avie1“Michael Thomas Llewelyn.” Sam hissed coldly, closing the compartment door behind her.

‘So no one can hear me scream…’ Tom thought wildly, flinching at the use of his full name. He attempted to give a winning smile. “Er… yes, Sam?”

“Don’t “yes Sam” me,” she said poking her finger into his chest, “You go to the Falcons/Cannons game last night, see your brother make a fantastic maneuver, and tell Forster about it before me? Are you bloody barking?!”

Tom smiled sheepishly as he rubbed the back of his head, “Heh… I was looking for you, but I got sorta sidetracked. It was awesome though.”

“‘Awesome?'” She repeated shrilly.

“AWESOME? I’m going to MURDER you, you daft git, don’t you understand that?”

“B-but I took pictures.”

Her hand twitched, hovering over her wand, which had been st...

Céilidh year 6 avie1Céilidh’s body count continued to rise as she made her way forward towards the prefect’s car. Seven first-years, three second-years, and a half-dozen forth-years were left battered in her wake before word started to spread and the way ahead finally cleared for her. She threw the cabin door open just in time to hear Sam’s question.

“Are we missing someone?”

“Call off the hounds,” Céilidh said as a slight flush painted her cheeks to match her hair, “A have arrived!”

There came yet another round of high-pitched squees and hugs from most of the girls in the car, and polite hellos from most of the boys with a few hugs thrown in for good measure. Once everything calmed down, Céilidh tucked herself into the booth with Bill Weasly, her counterpart in Gryffindor...

Céilidh year 6 avie1“Dang, dang, dang…” Céilidh repeated over and over from the back seat of the cab as it screeched to a stop outside Kings Cross. The car had barely come to a complete stop before she was out the door and pulling on the latch to open the boot.

The driver turned in his seat, “Tha’ll be £10.40, sir.”

Teague MacAllister pulled out his billfold. He’d never really gotten the hang of muggle money, so he pulled scrap of paper with the largest number on it and tossed it to the driver. “Here ye gae,” he said, getting out of the car to help his daughter.

The driver looked at the note, then hollered, “But sir, this is £50!?”

“Ye gat us here on tid. Keep tha change.”

In minutes they had their cart loaded down and were pushing their way through the crowded station...
