PostSubject: A quiet train ride   Sun Jul 15, 2012 12:14 am

It wouldn't be long now. The people were mulling into the train. Kaila's trunk lay at her feet, Pollux was out of his cage. She was in a compartment at the very end of the train, were hardly anyone ventured. She didn't want a repeat of the train ride back from fifth year. Early, she had passed the Weasleys while they busily loaded onto the train. Lately, Percy was acting odd. Odder than usual at least. He didn't reply to her owls, he flaked on their plans, and even when she had been at his house, he practicly ignored her. She figured it was just the stress of starting a new school year. What else could it be? Even when she stopped to say hello to him and wish Ginny a good first train ride, he barely acknowleged her presence. Now though, she looked down at the book she reading, not really paying attention to the things around here. It was quiet here, on this part of the train.

This was Tor's first year at Hogwarts, being recently transferred from Durmstrang he already saw the difference between the two schools. He milled about the station in stone washed jeans and navy blue shirt. He did not care that the other witches and wizards looked at him with either disdain or curiosity, wizarding robes was not his cup of tea. He deftly lifted up his trunk and owl cage with his snow owl Sinclair inside. Before boarding the train he brought Sinclair over to the animal carriage and tied his cage securely to the train. Making his way from the animal compartment he went off in search for a compartment that was unoccupied. Since he was new and not a first year though he felt like one he didn't want to bring too much attention to himself. Walking down the corridor he glanced into every compartment and in nearly everyone there was more than two people. He kept on walking until reached a compartment with only a girl sitting inside. He knocked softly on the door before partially sliding it open. "Excuse me miss, would you mind if I sit with you? Everywhere else is occupied."

Kaila had been lost in her own world of the book in front of her. She supposed she should have sought Olliver at least for company. But where he ventured, other roudy, noisy boys followed. A quiet knock and the sound of the door opening drew her from her own little world. "Oh, of course not. Come on in." She gestured to the open seat. "Um... I hope you don't mind cats. I can put him up if you'd like." The quidditch captain stroked the tabby in her lap, who had, in record time, fallen alseep.

He smiled gently at the other girl who he knew was called Kaila and lifted his trunk into the overhead hanging. "I do not mind cats at all Kaila." He sat down opposite her and extended his hand. "I apologize about the time at the Leaky Cauldron being suddenly called away like that. I'm Tor Odinson, transfer student from Durmstrang."

Kaila knew this boy. She remembered him from a brief encounter at the Leaky Cauldron. It was a bit odd to hear him use her first name. Only Pumpkin, Olliver, Percy and now Ginny used it. She was relieved though to hear she wouldn't have to stow her cat. Pollux got nervous and anxious during train rides. She wished there was another way he could get to school. She smiled and reached forward to shake the boy's hand. "Oh, that's ok. It's nice to meet you officially." She frowned a bit and looked down at her own hand. "Oh... I'm... I'm sorry, I think I got cat hair on you..." She felt embarassment flush her cheeks.

He shook her hand gently and smiled at her flushed face. "Don't be. I worked part time at pet store on Diagon Alley so I'm used to fur, feathers and scales." She looks cute when she blushes. "If you do not mind me asking, what year will you attending and what house have you been sorted into? I'm apologize if I'm invading you privacy."

"Really? That sounds interesting..." She supposed, next to working at Flourish and Blotts, that working at the pet store would we a dream job. Getting to see all thoose cute little animals. "Oh, no you aren't invading at all. This is my sixth year, I'm in Ravenclaw." She smiled timidly, gesturing to her blue and bronze tie.

"Ah I see, I should have noticed that before." He smiles and leans back into the bench. "I do not need to get changed into my robes yet do I?" He gestures to his muggle attire. "I do not like walking in robes much so I try to keep it off my body until I absolutely have to wear it." He runs a hand through his hair it being a habit of his.

Kaila was wearing her muggle clothes, though her tie found it's way into every outfit she wore. Her big indigo jacket was pulled over on her, a clean, white shirt underneath. She wore faded blue jeans and sneakers. She knew from experience how cold it could get at night outside Hogwarts when they arrived. "No, it can wait untill we get to school. There'll be time there."

He nodded politely at her. "I must say that I enjoy watching you play quidditch. Your games that you have played against Durmstrang were impressive." He rests his head against the coolness of the glass.

She chuckled a bit. "You saw those, huh?" She smiled. Kaila was quite proud of her role and abilities in Quidditch. It was her third dream job. The thing wanted to do and be most was a Auror. The next favorite thing of her's would be Professer. And after that, professional Quidditch player. Maybe I could teach Defense Against the Dark Arts and Flying... She mused to herself. Dream on.

He nodded. "All of the games you played against Durmstrang I have attended." He would not admit that he admired her, not being afraid to go at great speeds up in the air with relatively no protection if she would fall. He shook his head in wonder. The wizarding world would never cease to amaze him.

She blushed a bit again. No one, not even her father, uncle, or any of her friends could say they'd seen all of her Durmstrang games. It was thoose games she played the hardest, wanting to represent her school more than her house well. And the Durmstrang boys were quick, quicker than she thought. She remembered her first game against them. She remembered not believing the bludger was coming that quickly at her untill it really hit her. Literally.

He couldn't help but grin at the blush. She really is cute when she blushes, note to self: Make her blush more.

She rubbed her shoulder at the memory of that game, of the broken and dislocated shoulder. She was fine in a few days though, thank magic, and was back on the pitch in no time. Suddenly she remembered where she was and felt another flush at having gone suddenly quiet. "So, are you excited to be coming to Hogwarts?"

He saw her rub her shoulder and reached over towards her, concern written all over his face. "Is something the matter with your shoulder? And regarding your question about Hogwarts I shall answer that when I'm convinced that nothing is wrong with your shoulder."

The sudden concern sent another tinge of pink to her cheeks. "Oh, I'm fine. I was just remembering my first Durmstrang game. My shoulder gets a little stiff is all." She gave a small nervous laugh. "Those Bulgarian boys sure do pack a punch."

Her explanation placated his concern momentarily. "Has a healer looked at it?" He remember the time when he was playing football and snapped his Achilles heel and didn't look after it properly. There were complications because of his carelessness. He tilted his head and smiled. "That they do."

"Oh yes, not only the medic at the game but Madame Pomfrey, Hogwarts's medical witch, looked at it when we returned. It was a long time ago anyway." She gave a meek smile, flexing and moving her arm as if to prove she was fine. She was glad to have her nimble Nimbus, or she would have never left the pitch. Said was underneath her bench now, behind her feet.

He smiles gently. "That is good to know, and this Madam Pomfrey, is she a good healer? I haven't had the time to do all of my homework about Hogwarts."

Kaila noded, smiling. He was such a nice boy... "Madame Pomfrey knows what she's doing. I've yet to seen something she couldn't fix."

He adopted a thoughtful expression. "What about an old injury? I have been careless in the past and it has cost me quite a bit. I apologize if I was too patronizing before with my inquisition, I just do not want people to pay the price I have for not getting injuries properly attended to and looked after." With his right foot he absently let it rub his left Achilles heel.

She noded. "Of course. She knows what to do with everything. Plus she's been around for a long time. I mean, not like Dumbledore, but a long time." She said with a shrug. "What injury did you get?" She asked, looking down at the ankle he was rubbing.

She saw her glance down at his ankle and followed her gaze noticing that he was subconsciously rubbing his ankle. "Oh this? It is just an injury I sustained whilst I was playing the muggle sport called football. I snapped the Achilles heel but did not look after the injury properly so now I cannot play any sports." He looks forlornly out the window wishing he could turn back time and take better care of the injury.

"Football?" She had heard of this game before. Somebody had once tried to explain it to her. The Ravenclaw was quickly frustrated with all the rules and names and roles. She never did finished learning. "I'm sure Madame Pomfrey can help you."
