Albus Potter and the magic box

Albus Potter has been exited about going to Hogwarts ever since his Dad told him about what happened when he went to Hogwarts. But when Albus gets there he is in for a shock and a really amazing adventure he will never forget!


2. Going to Hogwarts

Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first of September was crisp and golden as an apple, and as the little family bobbed across the rumbling road towards the great, sooty station, the fumes of car exhausts and the breath of pedestrians sparkled like cobwebs in the cold air. Two large cages rattled on top of the laden trolleys the parents were pushing; the owls inside them hooted indignantly, and the red-headed girl trailed tearfully behind her brothers, clutching her father’s arm.


“It won’t be long, and you’ll be going too” Harry told her.


“Two years” sniffed Lily. “I want to go now!”  


The commuters stared curiously at the owls as the family wove its way towards the barrier between platforms nine and ten. Albus’s voice drifted back to Harry over the surrounding clamour; his sons had resumed the argument they had started in the car.


“I won’t! I won’t be in Slythrin!”

“James give it a rest!” said Ginny.


“I only said he might be” said James, grinning at his younger brother. “There’s nothing wrong with that. He might be in Slyth-“


But James caught his mother’s eye and fell silent. The five Potters approached the barrier.  With a slightly cocky look at his younger brother, James took the trolley from his mother and broke in to a run. A moment later, he had vanished.


“You’ll write to me, won’t you?” Albus asked his parents immediately, capitalizing on the momentary absence of his brother.


“Everyday if you want us to” said Ginny.


“Not every day” said Albus quickly. “James said most people only get letters from home about once a month.”


“We wrote to James three times a week last year” said Ginny.


“And you don’t want to believe everything he tells you about Hogwarts” Harry put in “He likes a laugh your brother”.


They carried on in to the station and started looking for the Weaslys. Finally they spotted them and after a short talk they boarded the train. And they were off.


Soon they were sitting together in their own carriage.


"Lets change in to our Robes, we should be arriving soon" suggested Rosie.
