A Hogwarts Chapter

Sofia has always thought she was just strange, But she soon finds that's not the case when she meets a certain wizard after a dreadfully rainy night...

Are you ready for a Hogwarts adventure?


10. Strange Horses?

We reach our destination and haul our bags off.

"Hey, Harry." I look over to him.


"Why is your owl so quiet?"

He smiles. "She's just very tame, I guess."

I shrug my shoulders and concentrate on evening my backpack straps out.

I look around, through the milling students, breathing in the fresh air. Most of the station is bricked. There's a small, cottage-looking building at the end of the platform, and a large red arch that goes from one platform to the other. The greenery surrounding us gives me a sense of peace.

We walk for a few minutes and reach some carriages. "Is this how we're going to get there?" I look at Hermione, my mouth open in awe.

She smiles at me, raising her eyebrows. "Yes, it is."

Harry, Ron, Hermione and I get inside a carriage. A few other students try to get on but they're stopped by some kind of invisible boundary.

"It looks like Professor Dumbledore placed a spell on the carriages." I hear Hermione say next to me, as I watch students rebounding in confusion and walking away to find other carriages.

We look around, and all the carriages are much fuller than ours.

"How strange." Hermione whispers.

I look over the front to find what'll be pulling the carriage.

"Oh, don't worry, you can't see anything there, it's a... Spell."

"What do you mean?" I ask in confusion, pointing forwards. "Then what are those strange-looking horses doing there?"

I look back at her, and I see all three of them looking at me strangely. "Seriously, what?"

Hermione sighs slightly, seemingly gathering the mental strength to say something.

"They're called Thestrals, and one can only see them if they've seen death."

Images fly through my mind, I bite my lip and look away.

I can't cry. Not now, not in front of them.

Nobody says a word for the rest of the journey.
