32. The Knight Bus

Kyle's P.O.V

 


When we finally were all there, the wizards of us stuck their wand hands in the air and then something so fast came out of nowhere that freaked us all out! Well, not all of us - the boys were probably used to it. We didn't notice it immediately, just like we couldn't see the other platform, maybe it has something to do with being a muggle. Wizards hide perfectly. 

It was a purple triple bus, with bright lights. Gold letters on it said The Knight Bus. Instantly its door burst open and a guy wearing purple stood by its door. 

"Welcome to the knight bus emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand wand, step on broad, and we can take you anywhere you want to go. My name is John Shunpike and I will be your conductor this evening."

"Hello John. Remember us?" James asked. John took a minute to recognize him and when he finally did he said, 

"Oh, it's yeh! The four of yeh! And who are these people you brought with yeh?" 

"These are our new friends, some of them are muggles."

"What?! We don't take muggles with us!" Said the driver from his armchair. 

"It's ok Ern, they're the Marauders' friends. Welcome, beautiful young ladies." He said to Max, Alex, Clara, Ruby and Lily. They all giggled. 

"Urrm, John, they're our girlfriends." James corrected. 

"Oh! Sorry,mate - but get in, get in ..Okay, where do you wanna go?"

"The Leaky Cauldron." Sirius said. 

"Okay, let's see where we can seat ya’ll." John started searching for a place. "Can each two fit in a bed?" He asked. Did he just say a bed? Sirius whistled and James laughed.

"I think we can, right guys?" Remus asked. As we nodded John started thinking again. 

"Then you'll need six." Go right there. He said pointing to the right. We got in and I figured what he meant by beds. The bus wasn't full of seats, it was full of beds. Some of the beds had old people in them, covered in sheets and asleep. Some had grownups talking. But non had teenagers or children. Yup, we were the only Hogwarts students who took the knight bus at night. 

"This is our driver, for those who don't know 'im, Ernie Prang. It'll coast each one of yeh eleven sickles, but since you're with our friends, the marauders, eight will be enough. But eight won't get yeh paper bags, or 'ot chocolate, 'ot water,  or a tooth brush in the color of yer choice. Ten will."

"Alright then, let it be ten." Said Sirius putting his arm around Alex. I went to my and Clara's bed and sat on it beside her. John gave us a paper bag with all the things he mentioned and another paper bag.

 

Alex's P.O.V


"Ready everyone?" Ernie said.

John sat by him in the other arm chair and he didn't even wait for a reply. Everyone was in their beds, the boys were hurrying the girls. The next thing happened was that the six beds combined. Not because of magic, but because of speed. The bus was so fast! My heart started beating so fast and I suddenly let out a horrifying shriek. I opened my eyes and then Sirius held me closer.

"It's ok, you'll get used to the speed." He said chuckling. I looked at the others; Clara was crying and holding Kyle's arm so strongly, Ruby found the use of the paper bad they gave us and started vomiting in it, Remus was trying to follow Max who flew to the back of the bus and Lily and James were both laughing so hard. I buried my face in Sirius's chest, maybe the ride was a bit fun but the speed was too scary. 

I thought of all of the possibilities that can happen when the bus is driving in this speed; how typical for a Ravenclaw, but I did. When I finally felt secured in Sirius's chest I let my face out and allowed myself to look at the way the bus was driving. It wasn't crashing any car, it was smoothly moving between them. It sometimes stretched and that was so weird. When we faced a bridge it stretched horizontally and, well we didn't crash! It was kinda safe but still scary. 

"This is a nightmare." I said barely audible, but since I was sitting on Sirius's lap he could hear anything from me. Maybe he even heard my super-fast heart beats, or felt them. I wondered if the speed was the reason my heart was beating so fast, or if Sirius sitting beside me was. Sirius laughed harder, which cause me to laugh too. Max was still moving from place to place, she couldn't take hold of her balance and Remus finally was so close to her and held her hand. The sight was hilarious, soon Sirius and I looked like James and Lily, both laughing so hard. What was going to happen anyway? Why was I afraid when I had Sirius with me protecting me as a guardian with his arms? The ride got less scary by the time, maybe we got used to the speed. Ruby even stopped vomiting but her face was still green and Ethan was still comforting her. As for Clara, Kyle was doing his best to calm her down, putting his arm around her shoulder, whispering stuff to her - well, doing what Sirius tried to do with me at the plane probably, but it didn't work completely, she was no longer crying but she was still scared to death. 

 

 

Max's P.O.V


I think my the end of this ride I'm gonna break a bone. I've been crashing in every place of this bus for the whole ride. Yeah, it's so funny I can't even breathe because all of the laughing, but it also gets a bit harmful when I bump into somethings. A super strong break knocked me to the front, my and Remus's hands separated now and my head hurt so bad. 

"Mr. Smith we’re there." John said. No one responded, apparently Mr. Smith was asleep. "MR. SMITH." shouted John. 

"DON'T KILL HER! SHE'S INNOCENT! WHAT?!" 

"We're there." Repeated John rolling his eyes. "Always gets nightmares." He murmured to himself.

Remus finally gave up and started walking to his bed, the others were laughing, I now noticed. The man got out of the bus and suddenly before Remus could reach the bed the bus moved again. Now I rolled on the ground, I stood up on my feet again and then reached the back of the bus again. On top of Remus. We literally stared into each other’s eyes for a minute, until the bus turned to the right and we went left. We weren’t separated this time, Remus hugged me and refused to let go. Everywhere I went he went, we even kissed once or twice. It was all great. After all I decided that the ride wasn't that bad. And we finally were knocked to the front which meant that the driver braked and we finally reached The Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley.
