I walked hand in hand with Draco behind my sister and Narcissa. I smiled as Isabella looked at us disgusted with the affection we showed each other. "You'll blow your cover," she smiled. "Muggles," Draco sighed as he watched them pass as if they didn't see us. "9 & 3/4," Kira said looking back at me. She walked through the wall. I watched as Isabella, then Narcissa went ahead of us. I looked over to see a girl watching us. "Go ahead, Draco," I said as I walked towards her. "Best hurry, Fera," he said before entering the platform. "Excuse me," I smiled at the girl standing there. "You look a bit lost."
I watched as waited for Mortifera on the other side of the barrier. I watched as the other students said good-bye to thier parents. A first year walked by carrying the latest edition of the Daily Prophet. "Give me that," I said taking it from him. "Malfoys fall from favor," I said with a scoff. "Don't pay it any mind, Draco," my mother said as we walked to towards the train. I flipped through to see the photo of my father chained and in Azkaban. Fury boiled inside of me. My mother quickly took the paper from me. "I love you, Draco. Have a wonderful school year," she was fighting back the tears and I could see it. "If you need anything, Fera and your cousin are there as well as Kira and Severus. Rely on them, Draco," she said as she kissed me and hurried away. I walked the platform until I found another student with a Daily Prophet. "I'm confinscating this," I said ripping it from his hands. I boarded the train and made my way to the Slytherin Compartment where I sat down and began to read what the prophet had to say about my family.
I walked towards the barrier between platforms 9 & 10 and stopped. "You have to walk straight threw the barrier between 9 & 10. Just follow me."
I took off in a run and passed through the barrier. I looked around on the other side for Isabella or Draco. "Where've you been," Kira asked me as I entered. "Sorry, I was helping someone onto the platform. Following orders," I said coldly. "Train leaves shortly you best get on the train."
I nodded and watched as Hermione entered the platform. I smiled at her then made my way to the Slytherin compartment where Draco sat with the Daily Prophet and Isabella. "What's that, Draco," I asked taking it from him. "Filth," I said as I read it. "Honestly! How can they write this trash! I'm sorry Draco," I said putting my hand in his. "There's more," he said flipping to the an article that read "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Returns!"
Mum was ushering us all forward and Fred and George looked at us smugly. Harry and I went first and we boarded the train quickly and chose a compartment with no one in it"Theres Hermoine" I said noticing her beautiful hair.
I ran towards the Barriers 9 and 10 and then appeared on Platform 9 3/4 with all the other Hogwarts students and parents. I boarded the train looking for Ron, Hermione, Harry, and/or Ginny. I bumped into Hermione then we sat with Harry and Ron.
"Charming isn't it," I laughed as Bella lit the paper on fire. "Honestly, how they get away with writing it. I miss the days of 'The Boy Who Lies'. To drag your family through the mud," I said laying my head on Draco's shoulder. "It's all right, we'll be back at Hogwarts soon enough. And we can be ourselves...well you two can at least. I have to 'Follow Orders'," I said mocking Kira's tone. I rubbed my left arm where the dark mark sat cozy beneath my sleeve. I watched as the other Slytherins conversed and mingled while Bella, Draco and I sat content in each others company.
"Yeah, but it wont be as much fun without Fred and George," I replied thinking about all the funny things they had done over the years. THen i realised it was mostly on me and changed my mind "...Or not"
