King's Cross station,1 September
The last two months went by in a blink of an eye. Blair managed to complete nearly all of the first yearbooks in this period of time, well it sucked to not be able to use his wand outside the school grounds, He will have to wait until he boards the Hogwarts Express. But right now
' Where the hell is this platform 9¾'
Blair was getting frustrated because he has been trying to find the platform for 15 minutes. The professor must have forgotten to tell him about something you had to do, Like the first time they entered Diagon Alley. He wondered if he should take out his wand and tap on things randomly.
As he was thinking about tapping his wand on random things, he noticed a group of people passed by his side. The group consist of A middle-age couple and an eleven-year-old boy. Both of the adults were wearing old fashioned black robes whereas the boy was wearing a grey sweatshirt and black pants. Looking at their clothing, Blair could tell that they were from the wizarding world.
"Excuse me, can you please show me the way to platform 9¾ "Blaire reached out to the trio and hoped that they are from the wizarding world.
" You must be a first year, it's quite simple actually, All you have to do is to walk straight at the barrier between platforms nine and ten" replied the middle aged women, Gesturing her hand towards the wall between the two platforms.
"Thank you, Mam, I have been trying to find the entrance for quite a while"Blaire expressed his gratitude while heading towards the barrier. As the distance between him and the barrier shorten, he closed his eyes and unconsciously waited for the impact, but the impact never came instead he kept on running. After waiting for a second he opened his eyes just to see a scarlet steam engine waiting next to a platform packed with people. After observing the platform for a while he started to look for an empty compartment. He kept on walking through the crowd until he found an empty compartment near the end of the train. Blair tried to lift his old heavy trunk towards the train door But failed to pick it up.
'Come on Blair, you are a wizard' he took out his wand and waved it towards the trunk.
"Wingardium Leviosa" Nothing happened.
'well the result was expected'
"Want a hand?" A voice came from his front, it was the boy who was with the middle age couple he just talked to. He was standing in the doorway of the train boggy.
"Please, If you don't mind" Blair panted
The boy took out his own wand and pointed it towards the trunk.
"Wingardium laviosa" After the chant, the trunk slowly levitated into the air and began to follow every movement of the boy's wand.
"neat isn't it" Said the boy while placing the trunk in the corner of the compartment. After that, both of the boys sat in the same compartment.
"Thank you" Blair thanked him while trying to imitate is action to levitate his old Trunk, But failed miserably.
" you are saying it wrong, you have to make 'gar' Nice and long, Take a look at this 'Wingardium Laviosa'"The trunk again began to float. Seeing this, Blair felt a little depressed, while the other 11-year olds were performing levitation spells, He hasn't performed a single basic spell yet. They were probably taught magical theories from a young age, It was unfair,
He knew how the world worked, There is no point on crying about it, The real question is what will you do about it?.
"I am Blair Bradley" Blair extended his hand towards the boy,
"So Alastor, you must have know quite a bit of magic" Blair said curiously while looking at the trunk which was floating a few moments ago.
"Not really, My Parents didn't allow me to use a wand until I was 11, using a wand too soon will cripple my potential," Alastor said nonchalantly.
'At least I am not that far behind in spell casting' Blair reassured himself.
As the journey went by, Blair found out about the wizarding world prejudices, and a recently formed terrorist group lead by a man named Voldemort, Who was trying to eradicate Muggleborns like him. After hours of talking, they heard a voice from outside.
"Everyone get ready, change your clothes if you haven't already, we are going to reach our destination in 5 minutes"
As the train stopped they got out of it. A giant can be seen in the crowd of students, Holding a lamp in his right hand.
"Firs' years! Firs' years over here! All right there"
