18. Hogwarts Express

I woke up by the sunny sun shining on my face through the window.

"I have forgotten to push the courtains shut", was my first thought. I streched myself on the bed.  

I felt sick. All the crying and the lack of sleep made me feel empty and dull.  

I looked at my watch to see what time it was. It was 9:47 am. I fell from my bed in shock.  

"SHIT!!! I over slept! I will be late! I can't catch my train! I had to be at 10:50 at the platform Nine and Three Quarters which I had to find first! And therefore I had to get to the King's Cross station! I need to hurry up now!" I said to me.  

Totally paranoid I couldn't manage to pack my bags and decided that I first go to the toilet. Afterwards I packed my stuff and called for a taxi. It was 10:20 and I ran down, threw my keys to the waiter and stormed out the pub with my bags, many strange looks after me. On the way outside I thanked for the comfortable stay.  

I waited outside for more than 10 minutes and was very angry at the driver when he arrived. He was actually Indian so I talked to him in Hindi: "You know what time it is? It is 10:33! And do you know when my train will be leaving at the King's Cross station? AT 11 O'CLOCK!!! Now move your ass and get me quickly to King's Cross!!!"

"Yes, ma'am. Sorry, ma'am." I got in and he drove as fast as possible for him to the station. Very embarassed and very quietly. Me, always looking at my watch, nervous and impatient.

"Can't you just hurry up?" "Quicker!" "Move, people, move!" "Just jump to fucking green you fucking traffic light." I cursed the very first time in my life and I didn't really realised that. The driver was looking at me surprisingly all the time and I snubbed at him for this.  

It was 10:53 when we arrived at the station. I payed him but didn't gave him any tip, he didn't deserve it.  

Then after the very kind help of my driver - sarcasm - I went between the platforms 9 and 10, searching for some people with red hair. I searched in the sea of busy people and was bumped several times but there were no red heads.  

Then I tried to search for the platform itself but was unsuccessful. 

Feeling disappointed and exhausted I searched for the nearest bench to sit down. I saw an empty one and started to walk to it. I nearly put my bags down but there I was grabbed by my right upper arm and was forcefully turned around. I was scared and thought that this might be the kidnappers but when I saw a friendly but worried plump 40 years old lady with red hair I calmed down and smiled lightly.  

"Are you Galaxy, Galaxy Charmé?" I nodded shyly. Then a tall man in old clothes and with orange hair came from behind her.

"I am Athur Weasly and that's my wife Molly. Albus send us to pick your up for your train for Hogwarts."

"Yes, and you are late! You only have 2 minutes!! Hurry up!!" Molly dragged me through the crowd to a wall. "Now, run into the wall. Don't hesitate! You don't have time anymore to do so!! My children are waiting for you at the other side of the portal. Don't be scared. You can't smash against the wall and get hurt. Trust me and just do it!" She smiled at me and before I was able to realise what she said she pushed me towards the wall and I stumbled through it.  

I closed my eyes when I was just a few inches away and I still had closed them when I heard a train bell.

"Hey, look! There she is!" A girls voice screamed.

"Stop! Wait! There is one student left. STOP!" Two male voices screamed in union.

I opened my eyes and I realised that I was on an other platform. I looked around in disbelief and saw the number of the platform, Nine and Three Quarters. I turned around, trying to figure out what happened.  

Then two boys, twins, with red hair, maybe in my age, ran towards me. "You should hurry up or the train will leave without you," said the one. "And our mom would be very angry if we would leave you behind," said the other one.  

They both grabbed my bags and pushed me towards a stunning train. The 'Hogwarts Express'. It was a massive old steam locomotive, coloured in red. The locomotive honked again and the twins threw me into the engine then they threw my bags after me and finally they jumped in. Fortunetely, there was a silent and very cute girl, also with red hair, who catched me before I fell to the ground. The steam engine started rolling and I realised that I managed to catch the train.....ON TIME!!! But some how I was too confused to believe that.  

"Let's go to our compartment, first", the girl suggested. She dragged me behind her and the twins behind me with my bags followed us. We arrived at the compartment where 3 other people were. When the girl rolled the glass door aside they looked up, curiously.

"Come in. And take a seat", the girl said. I obeyed and looked how the twins threw my bags on the floor and took their seats beside me, exhausted.

"GOSH! Why do girls have to bring so much stuff to school?" both said at the same time. That made me giggle and they both looked at me surprised.

"Finally, you made some noise!" the one said. I looked sheepishly down on my hands.

"Look! She behaves like a first year! How sweet!"

"Fred! Don't bother her!" the girl said.

"Don't mind my brothers. They are always talking rubbish!"

"Hey! That's not true!"

"Well, I am Ginny, Ginny Weasly. And that are my older twin brothers ... "

"Fred!"

"And I am George!"

"Nice to meet you!" They said again in union. I shook hands firstly with Ginny and then with the twins.

"And that's my other older brother Ron", she pointed at a boy with red hair.

"Hi!" I shook hands with him too.

"And I am Hermione Granger", I shook with her hands and smiled lightly.

"And that's Harry Potter", Hermione said and I shook hands with him too. But I felt something strange, cold and scary when our hands met. I flinched lightly but tried to surpress it but nevertheless he noticed that and he was abit sad then. I smiled as heartly as possible to revise my bad behaviour but he smiled only lightly.  

"And you are?" Ron asked.

"Ron!" Herminone slapped him on the arm.

"Ouch! What was that for?"

"Oh, I am very sorry for not introducing myself. I am Galaxy, Galaxy Charmé."

"Oh, you are not British or Amarican", said Hermione.

"Yeah, I am half German half Indian."

"Oh, the Patel sisters would love to meet you! They are Indians, too!!" said Ginny.

"There are other Indians at Hogwarts?"

"Yeah! There are people from everywhere!" Ron said.

"So, you are the one who our dad was so excited to meet." I looked at Fred.

"Why was he so excited about me?" I asked very confused.

"Well, we don't know. We thought you could explain that to us", I looked confused at Fred and thought for an answer.

"Well, he said that he was ordered by Dumbledore to get me my train", I said. Then it was silent. Suddenly Ron asked me: "How old are you?"

"I am 17."

"What? You are full aged?"

"No, I am 17, not 18!" I said.

"Are you the first time in Hogwarts?" asked Hermione before Ron said something in response.

"Yes. I am."

"And which school did you left? I assume the Beauxbatons academy." I looked down at my hands and was very embarassed. I didn't know what to say. Was it really that necessary to be at one special school before to attend Hogwarts?

"I never went to a school like that before..." The room went silent, again. And I was still looking at my hands.

Finally Ron broke the silence: "So, which class will you attend? Because actually you should be graduated but you didn't had any type of education."

"I am educated! I am only not educated in magic! And I will attend the 4th years but I think I will go firstly with the one years."

Then Harry spoke the very first time: "Then you are in our year!"

"That's great! At least I know someone then." I smiled at him.

"Great!" Ginny said. "But I am a year under you. Nevertheless, we will see us in the breaks and meals."

"Oh, okay."

"And we are one year older but actually in your age. That's why we will see us in the breaks and the meals, too!" the twins said. I nodded. Then there was silence, a third time.  

"And did you hear that this year there will be no Quidditch matches in Hogwarts!" Ron said excited.

"What's this?" I asked.

"You don't know about Quidditch?!" He asked disbelievingly.

"You have to learn alot of stuff, Galaxy!" All my new friends said in union. We laughed about that situation and then I was explained what that tournament was all about.  

"Okay... I think I got it!" I said after they explained it, but honestly I just get that it's a sport, nothing why they are all that excited about that.

"Dear Merlin! That took much of time and energy!" George said.

"Yeah, I know! But it's very complicated." I said. Right then my stomach cried.

"And I am sooo hungry! When will we arrive at Hogwarts?" I asked.

"The journey is 9 hours long. So we will arrive there in 6 hours." I sighed and felt my bladder pushing.

"Eeeehm... Is there a toilet anywhere?" I asked.

"Yes. You have to go to the left then you will get to the toilets next to the Slytherins. But be careful!" Hermione said. I didn't understand what or who Slytherins were and why I should be careful but I really had to go to the toilet quickly and that's why I couldn't ask what she meant. I nodded and stormed out the cabin to the toilet. 

I felt so much easier after I was finished and left to go back. But there were 3 boys standing in the corridor and talked to each other. A fat boy with very short hair. Then a tall boy and the last one had blond hair. That blond tone of my kidnapper, the one with long hair. I shuddered of the thought.

I decided to pass them very quickly and quietly. It would be the best and the only way to be 'careful' as Hermione said. I went past the boys and avoided to look at them.

"Look, Gregory! Who's that? A new student! I think we should introduce ourselfs don't we, Vincent?" A voice from behind said and a few giggles were heard. I stopped and turned around. The blond boy stood in front of the others; he seems to be the gang ruler.

"I am Draco Malfoy", the blond one said very arrogantly.

"Galaxy Charmé." I said quietly.

"And you two?" I asked polietly.

"I a - "

"They don't matter." Draco cut the tall one off who started to introduce himself.

"Where are you from?" Draco asked and looked at me hungry.

"Germany."

"I see. And why are you attending Hogwarts?"

"I - I -"

"Draco! Leave her alone!" Harry's voice interrupted my helpless try for searching for a reason.

"Potter!" Draco said scornful.

"Lost your way to find your criminal godfather?" The two boys in Draco's back started laughing.

"Let's go Galaxy. They aren't good people. It's better to avoid them." Harry grabbed my arm and dragged me down the corridor.

"Awwwe! Harry, the savior ! But how ironic, he had to be saved by his mother! But if you ask me it's a pitty that even one of that dirty family survived!" Draco was sneering behind us and his devotee started to laugh more louder. Harry stopped and he was panting very heavily in anger.

"Harry, you said a few seconds ago that they are not good people and we have to avoid them. Now I understand why. You were completely right." I said calmly to prevent him from a fighting with them.

"Just let us go back." I said and he nodded and we went back.  

Back in our cabin everyones attention was on Harry because he was still angry at Draco.

"What happened? And why did it take so long?" Hermione asked.

"Some ... how was his name? Eehmmm... yes! Draco Ma-"

"MALFOY!" Everyone in the room was spitting his name in disgust.

"What did he do this time?" Ginny asked while she moved next to Harry.

"The usual." Harry said between gritted teeths. "Who is that boy?"

"You mean that little -"

"Please, boys! I don't like insulting others." I interrupted the twins before they could continue.

"But - "

"His father has a high position in the ministry and that's why he so arrogant. And moreover the whole family is involved... in dark magic. That's why he is also in Slytherin. And he is very proud about his family tree. Purebloods" Hermione explained further.

"Oh. What is Slytherin, by the way and Purebloods?" Fred explained this time.

"There are 4 houses in Hogwarts that are named after their founders: Hufflepuff who are very hardworking and loyal. And their representative animal is a badger. Ravenclaw who are very clever. Their animal is an eagle. 

Slytherin who are very sly and very arrogantly proud about their pureblood. That means that their family has only wizards and witches in their family. And their animal is a snake. 

And finally Gryffindor, where we all belong to, who are very brave and our animal is the lion.  

The sorting hat will decide at the first day of school where you belong to. It can see your character and thus will decide which house will be the best for you. And that means that you will be sorted very soon, too!" It was abit too much for me and I can't actually imagine how a hat can choose something.

"Okay... I think it's abit too confusing and I can't imagine how things will work. So I guess I let me surprise."

Everyone nodded and Harry said: "It will work out... somehow. It was confusing for me too at the very beginning but after you learn and start to understand a little bit you will manage everything." He smiled and I smiled back.

"Afterall, you have us, your new friends and we will help you." George said. I looked in all smiling faces.

"Thank you for making friends with me and helping me."

"Aaaaawe! Galaxy!!" The twins hugged me tightly and I choked.

"You are killing her, boys!" Ginny tried to save me.

"Uuuups!" They released me and I was able to breath again.

"Okay, how long until we arrive at Hogwarts?"

"5 hours."

"Uuuff!! I think I will take a nap. I am just too tired!! I didn't even slept well. Ginny, will you wake me up after 3 and a half hours, please?"

"Of course, Galaxy! Do you need some sheets?"

"Oh, no no! I have my coat that's enough, thank you." I smiled at her and was very touched by her solicitude for me. To a person she barely knows.

"Alright then. Sweet dreams." She smiled at me again.
