"So," Anora began as they finally settled onto the last train they needed to arrive.


"Do you speak Romanian, Charlie?"

Charlie's eyes grew wide as he glanced over at her. She smiled before bursting into laughter.

"We did not plan this through at all!" Anora said.

"But that's the whole point of having an adventure," Charlie told her. "It's no fun if you plan it all the way through. The surprises are the best part."

She nodded. "Yes, but speaking the language would be nice too."

"Yeah, I really didn't think of that." He scratched his head awkwardly.

"It's alright." she said. "I guess we'll just have to wing it together."

"We can do it. We've gotten ourselves out of stickier situations."

"If you are referring to the time back in second year, I am still not taking full responsibility for that!"

"You're the one who thought it was a good idea to sneak up on the porlock."

"I did not sneak up on it, I simply approached it quietly." Anora crossed her arms.

"And you nearly got yourself killed in the process."

"Oh I did not! He came around after a few minutes of charging at me."

Charlie shook his head. "And now I'm going to be bringing you around dragons. Just don't sneak up on one, Anora."

"I thought the saying was never tickle a sleeping dragon."

"That too."

"We should still do it. Just to see what happens!"

"No, Anora, don't you even think about it."

Iggy meowed.

"See? Iggy agrees with me." Charlie said.

"Oh you two can be so dramatic. I wouldn't approach a sleeping dragon." she said. "I still want to tickle one though."

Charlie clapped his hand over his face. "I'm going to end up bringing you home in a box, aren't I?"

Anora shrugged. "Maybe. We'll see."

"Am I going to be allowed to apparate us to the sanctuary?" Anora asked Charlie, she watched his face become uncomfortable. "Oh come on Charlie, I'm pretty good at it. You'll be fine."

"I just don't like it, it makes my stomach twist and I feel like I'm going to throw up after every time."

She sighed. "Well, you can walk then." she said.

"Anora! You're just going to leave me?"

"I offered you to piggy back with me."

Charlie groaned loudly.

"How's about this then, I'll make you a deal. I give you a muffin and you let me apparate us to the sanctuary when we get there."

Charlie made a face. "Where are you going to get a muffin?" he asked curiously.

"I already have said muffin."

"Where did you get a muffin?"

"At the last stop." she replied simply.

"They had muffins and you didn't tell me?!"

"It's not like you asked."

Charlie narrowed his eyes at her. "What kind of muffin?"

"Does it matter? You love all muffins."

"Yes, but some are better than others."


"Fine, when we get there you can apparate us...but I want that muffin now."

"Deal." she said digging into her bag and pulling out the muffin for him. "If I had known it was this easy to convince you with food, I would have offered you a muffin in Hogsmeade so we could have gotten here sooner."

"But that would take away from the whole adventure."

"The whole adventure of us chasing the last train down?"

"I told you the train was running early, we were on time!"

"Easy, just eat your muffin." she smirked looking out the window. "Do you think Fred and George snitched on us?" she asked him.

"I would hope not, you bought them a load of stuff to keep them quiet."

"It's Fred and George we're talking about, I think they would use that in case they got in serious trouble."

Charlie shrugged. "It's too late now anyways, we're already here pretty much. I'm just wondering what our professors think about our premature departure."

"I wouldn't be surprised if McGonagall was already at the sanctuary ready to take us home by our ears."

"Yeah I'm sure she's pretty upset about your departure." Charlie said to her. " I mean, you were her little prize."

Anora rolled her eyes. " Was not."

"Oh yes you were darling! Look everyone, see how Anora is doing it. Anora, well done. Anora-"

"Shut it!" she laughed at his impression of McGonagall. "Jerk."

"You know it was true."

"Like you weren't Kettleburn's favourite? Charlie, my boy, you've got a knack for these creatures. You're a bright boy with a lot of potential, I just wish you would show up on time rather than sleep!"

"Okay, I already arrived to class late only a couple of times."

"A couple of times my arse. You are the king of tardy. That's why we almost missed the last train."

"We were on time!"
