- - Trip on the Knight Bus

It was a warm evening for a late summer's day. Mosquitos flew with a lethargic buzz, dandelions drooped in the wind, and even the cat seems heavier on its feet. Somewhere on the cobbled streets of England sat an annoyed girl and her curly haired companion, the latter sitting on a rather bulky suitcase, moments from dozing off. 

"Do you know that you're a git?" 
Said girl punctuated her sentence with a kick to the trunk, watching in satisfaction as her companion's eyes jolted open in surprise.

"Oi, what was that for, lass?" Eric Goodman rubbed the back of his curly head and yawned leisurely. Unlike his companion, he seemed completely relaxed about being "stranded in the middle of nowhere". He wouldn't word it quite so strongly as the petite girl whose eyes were attempting to burn holes into the back of his skull. 

Frustrated at his lack of response, Opal lifted herself off the suitcase that she had been sitting on and paced the cobblestone sidewalk fretfully. On hindsight everything had been her fault, of course. When Mrs. Goodman kindly extended the invitation for her to stay with them for a couple of days in Diagon Alley, she was overjoyed. But in a spurt of what she would call 'stupid gryffindor bravery', she agreed to be adventurous and make her way there with Eric, meeting the Goodman family at the Three Broomsticks when they were to arrive. 

And thanks to this gryffindor bravery, they were now stranded. She aimed another kick at the boy this time, who had also stood up, but he dodged and it landed in a thistle bush nearby, successfully scuffing her new shoes and further angering the five foot girl. 

"If you would just hold your horses," Eric protested in his thick cockney accent, "I was waiting for a mate who said he wanted to tag along." 

"A mate?" Opal's brows knitted together in confusion, "I was under the impression that I'm your only friend in school. There's Charissa too, of course, but she doesn't like you, so."

"The dislike is mutual, lassie. But no, I'm a regular rockstar in the lion's den. You really should get out more."

A roll of her eyes indicated just what she thought about that statement. She watched with skepticism in her eyes as the curly-haired boy stuck out his right hand as he moved to the edge of the curb. 

"Well?" 

Opal had no idea what she was supposed to be anticipating, especially after her companion gave her a 'be patient' look. The air was the same, thick and heavy with the sleepy country breeze. She quirked an eyebrow when a distinct 'beep' of a vehicle cut through the air. The next thing she knew, she was staring at an atrocious purple bus like thing that looked like a giant brinjal came to a stop in front of them. She was almost expecting smoke to dissipate beneath the wheels with such a dramatic entrance. 

"This will be our transport for the evening. Opal, may I introduce you to the knight bus!"
