An ominous ten-minute warning whistle screamed through the twice-yearly chaos of Platform 9 3/4s. There was a collective increase in the volume; imminent departure made parents' voices go higher in anxiety and students' in frustration or fear, depending on the grade and house. Some hassled Hufflepuffs shoved their luggage up into the train; a boy lay on his stomach near-off the platform trying to drag a salamander back to his pocket, and while a first-grade girl looking pale tried to recover out of tumbling out of the wall, her older brother slapped her lightly on the shoulder and said confidently not to worry, Harry Potter had done it loads of times.
The inexperienced coughed and squinted through the steam and owls screeched out loud declarations of their discomfort, and amidst all of the chaos excitement ran high and palpable in the air: it was time to go back to Hogwarts.
