After their altercation with the Malfoys, the rest of the break went very well for the twins and the Weasleys. Soon enough, they were on their was through platform nine and three quarters to board the Hogwarts Express for the long journey back to the great castle. It was Ginny's first time going to Hogwarts so Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Scarlett invited her to sit with them.
"What's it going to be like? Will people make fun of me? What if I'm not in Gryffindor? Wha-" Ginny was cut off by a look from Mrs. Weasley.
"Ginny, you should get on to the platform with us!" Mrs. Weasley said. "And everyone else follow!" Mr. Weasley yelled over the crowd.
Ginny, Mr. Weasley, and Mrs. Weasley went throughout the barrier. Fred, George, Scarlett, and Percy followed. "Lets go." Harry said. He and Ron ran but instead of going through, they crashed.
"The barrier sealed itself!" Ron said running a hand along the solid concrete.
"We missed it!" Harry replied.
"What if mum and dad don't come back?"
Let's just wait bye the car." Harry decided.
"The car!" Ron exclaimed. "Harry what if we just fly the car to school?" Before they knew it, they were off, flying in front of Muggles.
"Ron, Muggles think there's no such thing as a flying car!" Harry said.
"Right." Ron replied and pushed a button. The car turned invisible and they went soaring through the cloud.
"Lets find the train." Ron said, "We should be there soon"
They swooped down out of the clouds and were flying along the train tracks.
"Do you hear something?" Harry asked Ron, "Sounds like a train whistle."
"Must be getting close!" Ron said excitedly.
Suddenly the whistle grew louder. There was nothing in front of them though. Harry and Ron looked at each other in horror then looked behind them. The train was at their back bumper! Ron cranked the wheel and got it off the tracks. In doing so, Harry was flung into his door. The door latch didn't stick and suddenly his body was hanging out of the car.
"Ron! Help me!" Harry yelled. Ron tried to reach for Harry but he was having a hard time keeping the car flying straight at the same time. Suddenly Harry felt his body fly upwards, back into the car. He looked around and then saw that the car was flying on top of the train. Leaning out of one of the windows was Scarlett. Her wand was out and she had a huge grin on her face like she enjoyed the whole scene.
"Thank you!" Harry called down to his twin. She waved and shouted something back but it was lost in the train's whistle. "We found the train." Ron said. "Yeah, we did." Harry replied. Then, they followed the train.
About an hour went by when Harry and Ron were at Hogwarts. "Home Harry!" Ron exclaimed. Then, everything went wrong. The car must have grown a mind of its own. It flew strait into a tree. But not just any tree. The Whopping Willow. The most dangerous tree at Hogwarts.
The tree started to move and was banging on the car until the car fell out of the tree. The car rode right next to the entrance and Harry, Ron, Hedwig, Scabbers (Ron's rat ) and their trunks were thrown out of the car. The the car drove off into the forest.
"Mum's going to kill me!" Ron exclaimed. He held up is wand, it was almost in half.
Harry walked in with Ron and they were caught by the caretaker Mr. Finch. "Well, well, looks like your in trouble." He said. He led them to Snape's office.
"You where seen, by MUGGLES!" Professor Snape screeched. "Do you have any idea in your dull brains of how serious this is!?"
"Severous, calm down." Said a calm voice Harry knew instantly belonged to Professor Dumbledore.
"These, two are certainly supposed to be expelled!" Snape said pointing to Harry and Ron.
"I take charge of Gryffindors punishments, they are in my house." Said Professor McGonagall.
"We'll get our stuff. You're expelling us aren't you?" Ron said.
"Not today Mr. Weasley. But you will both receive detention. Now, go up to the common room, the feast is over." Professor McGonagall replied. Harry and Ron walked to the portrait and when she asked "Password?" Harry nor Ron had an idea.
"There you two are." said a two voices.
"Harry you and I will have a talk about this." Said one which was Scarlett's.
"It's not funny Ron!" Said Hermione.
"Will someone give me the password?!" The Fat Lady exclaimed.
"Polyjuice." Scarlett said.
"Your flew the car...." Scarlett said once they were in the common room. Harry nodded.
"Harry why did you fly that car?" Lee Jordan asked.
"The barrier sealed." Ron replied.
"I still can't believe you flew the car with out us." Fred and George said in unison.
"You had already left. " Harry said simply.
"What house did Ginny get?" Ron asked.
"Gryffindor." Hermione replied.
"Alright I don't know about you but I'm going to bed." Scarlett and Harry said at the same time. They stared at each other for a minute, then walked upstairs and left.
