All the parents were at the station getting ready to send their kids off to another year at Hogwarts. The Weasley and Potter cousins took up a big chunk of sidewalk as the family was pretty big. Harry and Ron were talking to one another while they waited for the train to get there. They were just reminiscing about their years at Hogwarts. Eventually the train could be heard off in the distance. It was getting closer.
George looked around and saw that his wife was busy talking to Fleur, so he grinned and walked over to his daughter. "Here you go, sweetheart." He said quietly. He took a tiny box out of his pocket. "You remember the spell I taught you, yeah?" The box was no bigger than a jewelry box, and the contents inside were almost too small to see. But if she used the spell, it would grow to be the size of a normal gift box and the contents inside would be their normal size too. Inside were some treats from his shop. He had to sneak it past his wife somehow, since she tended to frown upon him giving Roxanne gags and gadgets to bring to Hogwarts. There was also normal candy and joke candy inside.
Ron noticed and rolled his eyes a little. He was still smiling though. The two were definitely a pair. Roxanne acted just like her father, who was still rather immature at an older age.
Hermione and Ginny were talking. It was nice to have another year of getting together to see their kids off to Hogwarts. This would be the last year for James though. Ginny wasn't sure how she was handling him being all grown up now. Especially since Albus would be right behind him next year.
Roxanne smiled and nodded some. She remembered. She was a trouble maker like her dad, but she could be more mature than him if she felt the need to be. She probably got that from her mother though.
All the other cousins were hanging around and talking. They just wanted to get on the train and on their way back to hogwarts. Some of the group was particularly close. Like Dominique and Rose, and Lily and Lucy. They could be found together rather often.
There was a 6th year girl standing by herself in the terminal. She was dressed in what would be called vintage by the muggles. She liked the style though. Neva-Poetry was of the Slytherin house, although she was very charming like most of the Slytherin, she was also much nicer than most of them. She liked being friends with people from any of the houses. She hated the idea of Slytherin hating all the other houses, and especially the Gryffindor house, it was just ridiculous.
George smiled a little when Roxanne nodded. "Wait until you're at school." He didn't want her opening it and messing around on the train. James was looking around the train station but grinned when he saw Neva. He snuck up behind her and quickly picked her up in a hug. "There you are." He said happily. "I was looking all over for you." It was hard to see with all the people that crowded by the station.
Harry and Ron were still next to Ginny and Hermione. "Hard to believe it's James' last year." Harry said simply. The kids definitely grew up fast. "Speaking of, where's he gone off to?" He couldn't see James anymore, but he wanted to give him and Albus the whole 'look after your sister' thing before they left for school.
Roxanne nodded some. She would wait for school. She didn't want to get in trouble on the train or anything like that. Neva was standing there. She was a little startled when she was suddenly grabbed some behind. Although she heard James' voice and smiled. She turned around and looked at him. "Well I wasn't looking for you... shouldn't you be with your family?" She didn't mind that he came to find her, but she figured his family would wonder where he went off to. She didn't want him getting in trouble or anything. But she was happy to see him.
Ginny blinked when Harry mentioned James missing. She shrugged some. "Maybe he went to find some of his friends or something." She wasn't sure where he might have gone. Roxanne had over heard. "Or went to find his girlfriend." She said simply.
James put Neva down but pouted when she said she hadn't been looking for him. He was just messing around though. When she mentioned his family, he shrugged. "The train's not even here yet...Besides, I'd rather be with you." They started dating towards the end of last year but only got to see each other a couple times over the summer. He missed her.
Harry was standing there with the others but blinked when he heard Roxanne. "Girlfriend?" He seemed a little surprised. Not that he cared though. James was more than old enough to have a girlfriend. James never mentioned it to him or Ginny. Although Albus and Lily knew too. "Yeah, they started dating at the end of last year or something. She's in my house." Albus said simply.
Neva shook her head some when he pouted. She knew he was messing around though. She smiled when he said he'd rather be with her. She just hugged him. She knew that a LOT of Slytherin's hated that she was dating a Gryffindor. Especially the ones she was friends with. They didn't want there to be any positive relationships between the houses, except for Albus since that one was unavoidable. Although Neva was friends with Albus, and that was how she met James. Although Scorpius who she was much closer with seemed anything but happy about the arrangement.
Ginny blinked. Well that was interesting, a Slytherin dating a Gryffindor? She figured if that happened it would involve Albus. She hoped this girl was nice, since those of the Slytherin house didn't tend to be as nice as Albus was.
Harry was a little surprised to hear that James was dating a Slytherin too. But he didn't think James would make bad decisions. At least not too many. He was a smart kid. James smiled slightly when Neva hugged him. He moved closer and kissed her. Scorpius was in the crowd not too far away. He glared when he saw James kissing Neva. He had a crush on Neva for a while, but Albus had to go introduce her to James and ruin his chances. Needless to say, he wasn't a huge fan of the potters. Lily was hot, so he didn't mind her as much, even if she was a Gryffindor, but he wasn't a huge fan of her brothers. Eventually the train was visible off in the distance. It slowly made its way up to the station. James broke the kiss and smiled at Neva. "I'll meet up with you in one of the cars...Gotta go say my goodbyes." He had to get back to his family for a second.
Neva kissed him back. She didn't know Scorpius was around, or that he every had a crush on her. It's not like he every told her or anything. She heard the train come in. She smiled and nodded when he spoke. She just got her stuff. She headed to get on the train, and bumped into Scorpius. She smiled at him. "Why hello there." She was happy to see him. He was her best friend, even if he wasn't really accepting of others. He had been her friend from the very beginning. She wanted to sit with him on the train, but she wasn't sure if he'd want to sit in the same car as James.
Scorpius frowned when someone bumped into him. He was about to say something but smiled a little when he saw that it was Neva. "Hey. How was your summer." James headed back to his family and said goodbye to his parents, giving his mom a hug. "See you on holiday." He said simply. Harry smiled a little. "You two watch after your sister." Albus rolled his eyes. "She's fourth year, she knows her way around the place by now." Harry frowned slightly. James smiled weakly. "We got her back." He said simply. He knew that Harry had been talking about boys and stuff. He was more protective over his younger sister than Albus. The boys just headed off to the train. Hugo and Louis gave their moms hugs. Then they headed to the train. They were both really close. They were going to sit together on the train along with their sisters. Albus was going to hang out with his other cousins. James just got onto the train and started looking for Neva.
Neva smiled. "Same as always." She said simply. Which meant she hadn't done very much. She found a car to sit in with him. She had sat on the train every year with Scorpius, she wasn't planning on breaking that tradition now. "How was your summer?" She had her cat with her. She was a rag doll, her name was Penelope. She was a very mellow and nice cat.
The girls said goodbye to their mothers before heading onto the train. Dominique and Rose found a cart and sat in it, their brothers were with them. Lily found somewhere to sit with Lucy, Roxanne was with them. They all loved the ride to Hogwarts.
Scorpius shrugged when she asked about his summer. "Kinda boring." He said simply. He was glad to be getting back to Hogwarts. Hugo sat down with his siblings and his cousins. He looked at Roxanne and grinned. "What'd your dad send you up with this year?" They always had fun messing around with the stuff George sent up with Roxanne. George would send her and his nieces and nephews packages throughout the year too, if they asked for stuff. Their families always kept in touch with letters. Louis wasn't a huge fan of the gag gifts. They were funny at times, but after a while it got annoying. Especially if you were on the receiving end. James walked around until he found Neva. He saw that she was with Scorpius and her cat. He sat down next to her. "Hey." He said to the both of them.
Neva smiled and nodded some. She figured. His family normally did the same thing every summer. She was always invited to go spend a week with them at their summer home, and she always did, even this year. She really liked spending time with Scorpius. He was different around her for the most part. She blinked when James came in. She smiled some. "Hi." She said simply. Hopefully the two could be civil with one another.
Roxanne smiled and shrugged some. "A little bit of everything. Although I need to wait until we get to school. It'll be harder to sneak it past Filch if I open it now." She said simply.
Scorpius always had fun when Neva came to visit for a week over the summer. Normally it was his highlight of the summer since he didn't really do other fun things. He frowned slightly when James walked in, but it faded quickly since he didn't want Neva to see. James smiled and kissed Neva's cheek. Then he pet her cat behind its ears. He was a little allergic to cats, but nothing too bad. He was a prefect for Gryffindor so he'd be doing rounds on the train every now and then.
Hugo rolled his eyes when Roxanne mentioned Filch. "I can't believe that old man's still alive." Louis looked at Hugo. "He was old when our parents went to Hogwarts...He's got to be close." He had a very slight French accent. He was fluent in French since his mother was French and her side of the family mostly just spoke French. He learned it along with English when he was growing up.
