It's hard to resist a new beginning- september 1 1971

Post  Lily M. Evans Potter on Mon Aug 10, 2015 11:36 pm

It was a new thing for me, my sister hated me my parents were proud I was me. I met a new friend before hand. Severus was with me and showed me he knew how to do magic too! How exciting wa sthat I know another wizard! I had everything packed as my parents said goodbye to me at the station. I was told it was platform nine and 3/4. I was so confused it had to be somewhere. Severus told me about running through something but what?

I was really nervous.  Dad and I were on the platform.  It seemed really odd not to have Mum there with us for such an important time for me.  I pushed forward my luggage and Dad had a hand on my shoulder.  I looked up at him and smiled.  He was older than most dads, but I did not mind.  I saw everyone in such neat clothes and looked down at myself.  Yeah, Dad was a published author of a couple of different books, but most everything went to helping me -- and we did just buy the new place away from everything last year.  I felt even more self-conscious than I did before.

I looked around King's Cross Station and followed Dad as he led the way to Platform 9 3/4.  We passed a red haired girl pushing a trolly with a trunk on it.  I smiled slightly at her as we walked towards the platform.  I took a deep breath.  "Just run through it, right?" I asked, wanting to make sure it would only take me once to cross to the proper platform.

I walked with James and our parents.  I was so jealous.  I still had two years before I went to Hogwarts.  I was stomping slightly as we approached the platform, but we were going through the portal and I knew that I just could not wait until I went to school.  It was different than going to other schools or anything.  I was practically bouncing while Dad spoke to James about things.

"I can't wait until i can come," I complained.

I ran a hand through my hair that never wanted to behave.  Mum had kept trying to make it smart looking, but it never worked.  I could not stop grinning.  I was talking dad's ear off.  "So what if I end up in Ravenclaw?  I mean, I'm not that smart.  I really want to get into Gryffindor, though.  Like pretty much everyone in the family, yea?  I hope that I make many mates.  I mean, I've always been able to get mates, so I'm not that worried about that."

I smiled at my son.  "Yes, just take it at a run since you're nervous and you'll be fine," I said to him quietly.  "I'll be right behind you."  There was no need for him to be so nervous.  He was clearly magical and Dumbledore himself assured my son and I that he would be welcomed at Hogwarts.  This was coming true for my boy and I could not be happier.

My mum and I were on the platform facing the Hogwarts Express.  I was not entirely sure how I was going to do at school, but I was excited.  I was worried about Mum, though, being by herself and all.  "I'll use the school owls -- hopefully they have some we can use -- and write you as often as I can," I said to her.

"Okay," I said to my dad.  I walked towards the brick wall and took it at a run, just like dad said.  I knew that I was not going to stop.  I went through and found myself looking at the huge train.  I moved forward so I would give room for Dad to come through.  I felt a bit sad while looking at the train; Mum would have loved to see me be able to go to school.   I shook my head; I told myself I was not going to think about that.  I made my decision and so did Dad.  we were protecting her.

I felt a hand on my shoulder and I Jumped lsightly; it was just Dad.  "This is it," I said to him nerovusly.

I laughed at my son for the way he was talking, but I understood.  "James, you will be Sorted where you belong," I said to him calmly.  "Though, yes, everyone in the family has basically been a Gryffindor -- we had a few Ravenclaws, however."  I could see our daughter being a bit mopey.  



"Ems, you'll join your brother in a couple of years," I added to her.  I looked over at Tabatha and grinned.  "They are always so excited to get to Hogwarts... what are we goign to do with them?"

I looked at Remus and then the train.  I remembered embarking on my first trip to Hogwarts.  "You don't need to be nervous," I said to my son.  I bent down so I was at eye level with him.  "I know that you aren't like the other students here.  Do not let that deter you, though, son.  You are allowed to learn and enjoy your time here.  if Professor Dumbledore thinks you can be at Hogwarts, then you belong there, okay?"

I followed a boy and what about appeared to be his father. I took a deep breath as I said goodbye to my parents. " I'll write when I can." I promised. Turning back towards the wall, taking another deep breath as I started running then I came out the other side. Seeing everyone bustling around I went with the masses as I went toward the train.

"I better be Gryffindor," I said to my dad.  "I don't want to be one of the nerds."  I chuckled and shook my head.  I wanted to be just like my dad.  "I bet I could make plenty of new mates, too."

I was happy that Dad had given me some attention, too.  I grinned.  "I know... but I'm going to have no one to play with at home," I said.

I chuckled at my daughter.  "I thought that you couldn't stand James being around all the time?" I inquired playfully.

I found a compartment on the train and sat down.  It looked like there was no one else in there, but after saying goodbye to my mother, I was not going to stand out on the platform any longer than that.  This would be hard on her because it was basically just me and her.
