5. A Great Escape!

As darkness settles, Harry and I are ready to leave. We move to stand in front of the window and I shift my bag to a comfortable position.

"Your uncle doesn't have any idea about this, does he?" I ask, grinning out of excitement.

He looks into my eyes, I can see the fire of adventure burning in them. He smiles.

"Not a clue."

He moves towards the window and very slowly releases the catch. It creaks slightly, but judging by the ruckus downstairs nobody heard it.

"Can they play TV any louder?!"

"Tell me about it."

With that, he pushes the window upwards with grace and silence. He's obviously done this before.

Harry turns to me. "I'll go down first. Then you follow, okay?"

I nod silently.

He grabs Hedwig's cage, positions his bags and slides himself feet first out of the window.

I can't see the rest due to the dark, but I hear the quiet thump of Harry's landing, and the slight rattle of the cage.

Wow, that owl is quiet.

My turn.

I do the same as him, and reach the ledge. I shut the window.

My heart is practically beating out of my chest as I feel for a place to crawl down from.

"There's a small slope just underneath the ledge." Comes Harry's voice from the dark.

I feel for it with my left foot. Bingo. I get down a level.

"Now jump." Harry again.

I feel for the edge, screw my eyes shut and push myself of the edge.

My feet hit the ground with amazing silence. It must be instinctual.

"Great! Follow me."

I can see his face again thanks to the street lights. He slows slightly so we walk together. "We're taking a train there, but first we need to sleep. It's tomorrow morning."

"Why did we leave then?"

"My uncle would spot us if we left during the day... Times in the past haven't gone very well."

"Okay.. So where are we going to sleep?"

"At Hermione's house."

"That's not so bad! From what you've told me she seems pretty cool."

Harry laughs. "Well.. You could say that, yeah."
