3. The Bus, Plane and Train

-Next Monday-





"Ally, wake up sweetie." I heard mum's whisper getting though my dream. 

"One more minute." I said.

"No. You don't want to be late, you're going to London today!" she said.

What can I say, she knew how to wake me up. I opened my eyes very fast and yawned, causing mum to start insulting my morning breath. 

I got out of bed, brushed my teeth and got dressed. Everything was already in my suitcase. I was ready to go. I went to the kitchen and had some cereal for breakfast. 

"Oh I'm gonna miss you so much!" mum said. 

"Mum. It's not like I'm leaving forever." I said. 

"I know, but it's a whole month!" she said. 

"Just think of all the fun I'll have in this magic school." 

"Well, good luck then." she patted my shoulder as I finished my cereal and went to get my suitcase. I hugged mum and left. I really hated that I had to carry this suitcase all the way to school. I wish mum gave me a drive today. As I finally reached the school I started looking for Kyle but he wasn't there. Where is he?  I thought. Everyone was talking excitedly, I joined Amber -a girl who shares all of my classes- waiting for Kyle. 







I heard the alarm clock's exploding voice, I tried ignoring it, but it was so annoying! Man! I really hate waking up in the Mondays. I finally woke up. I suddenly remembered, it's Monday. The Monday!  

I suddenly freaked out and got ready in minutes, I didn't even eat breakfast, I was a bit late. Ally's probably been in the school for about an hour! She's such a nerd. 

I finally hugged my parents and Carla and went to school, taking my suitcase that Alex and I packed together. 

I was finally there.

"Finally!" Alex said loudly. "I thought you'd never come!" 

"Oh shut up. You know I'm always late." I said. I gave her a hug and waved to the other girls she was with. 

"Is everybody here? Ok. Now I think it's time for you to leave." The principle said. "Now, Miss Rebecca here is going with you, so are Mr. John and Mr. Blake." he continued. 

A huge bus was waiting for us, Alex and I hurried to get in just like kids. We laughed at our childish behavior and sat in. This bus was to take us to the closest airport and then by a train we're going to that school.

"What was this school called again? Hogworms?" I asked. Alex gave a very loud laugh.

"Hogwarts!" she yelled.  Now half of the senior student were in the bus. 

"I brought some snacks for the bus trip."

"You're such a genius!"

"That's how I rock." she said. 

The bus ride wasn't that long, it was like a nightclub! everyone was dancing and the music was so loud. We danced a bit but then enjoyed our snacks. 

"I heard that this school teaches actual magic." Amber was saying over the sound of music. 

"What do you mean?" Ally yelled to be heard.

"You know. Like, making things fly, hexing, such stuff." She said raising her eyebrows.

"But there aren't such things." Alex said rolling her eyes. 

"I don't know. maybe it's just a lie." 

Alex turned to me. 

"What do you think?" she asked. 

"Ally don't be stupid there's no such thing as magic." I said. Alex hesitated but then nodded. 

"We're almost there." Miss Rebecca said through the mic. 

And so we were. The airport was so empty. We were led to our plane, we sat in our seats and put our seat belts on. Now the plane wasn't a place for dancing and acting like little kids, it was a place to act like grown-ups and suddenly, every senior was a grown-up, including Ally and I. As the plane started taking off, I felt someone grab my hand. Alex. But Alex was such a courageous girl why was she afraid of the plane?

"you're scared?" I whispered.

"It's the second time I get into a plane, so yes." she whispered back. "what if we crash to the ground or anything?" she asked worriedly. I smiled at her. 

"Relax. Everything's going to be alright, we're not just gonna crash!" I said. I didn't let go of her hand, however. She still looked scared. 

The plane took off. It took us about seven hours to finally get there! Alex and I watched two movies and talked for about an hour and a half, how excited we were. 







Finally the plane was landing, the landing was as terrifying as the taking off and maybe it was even worse. Kyle immediately offered me his hand and I held it so tightly that I wonder how I didn't break one of his fingers. I looked from the window and I felt more sick so I stopped and looked away. Finally we reached the ground, I was in London! I couldn't believe it. We still had to take the train, such a long journey, this is. 

"We're on the ground." Kyle said smiling. 

"Finally." I said. 

The captain announced that we reached the ground and said we could leave now. Kyle and I stood up and followed our teachers. We now had to head for the train station King's Cross to get to Hogwarts. This airport was awesome, another bus came and took us to the train station, the train left at about 9:00 it now was 8:45. 

"I need to go to the bathroom." I told Kyle.

"Do you know where it is?" He asked me.

"No. I'll just ask someone." 

Kyle nodded and I went to the door. I tried to find my way but I couldn't, I kept on looking for instructions and found nothing, I kept on walking and walking and then I decided to ask a woman. 

"No English. No English!" she said. 

"Oh, okay." I said and tried again to find my way. What time is it? I forgot to wear my watch. I got my mobile out of my backpack. It was 9:55. Holly shit!  I thought, in five minutes the train will leave, and I'm lost in here!  I started freaking out, GOD! what should I do? 

"You're lost?" I heard a man say. He was a security guy and he looked terrifying. He was very huge. 

"Urmm, yeah. Do you know where the ladies' bathroom is?" I asked desperately. 

"Yeah." He said and he gave me the instructions, I had to be very fast! I thanked him and ran very fast, I don't want the train to leave me here. 







Where is Alex?! She said she needed to go to the bathroom, where is she now? It's almost nine and the train's almost leaving! Please Alex where are you? I wanted to enter the train but I had to call her first. 

"Hello." She answered her breathing loud. 

"Ally where are you? We have to get to the train or it'll leave!" I said almost freaking out. 

"I got lost and then - okay I'm almost there." she said. And we hung up. Please be fast Ally!
