“I have homework,” Kendra informed Ofir.
She had orders to inform him about homework. She could lift her chin up and be firm about that. She had to do her homework.
Why, she had no idea. But in all the myriad of stupid orders he’d given her, she liked that one more than most.
“All right. Do you need the library?”
Her own copies of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban were tucked away in the box of stuff she’d hidden in her old room. She hoped the library had copies. She knew there were computers there she could use. “Yes, please. I need to do some reading.”
“Fine. I’ll walk you there. Get your stuff.”
It took only a few minutes for Kendra to be settled into the library, with Ofir’s firm and unneeded order not to leave until he came to get her. She settled the books beside the computer and started writing.
- S… S… Solange Carrieter sat in the corner of the compartment of the Hogwarts Express…
She had only been in London for a few months when her Aunt Taffy had given her the letter. “You should have gone to Esterwind, of course, but with your parents missing, I arranged things so that you could go to Hogwarts. I think you’ll like it there.”
Solange looked around again. Magic was real. She’d always known her parents were hiding secrets, but this… but magic…
A kind-looking boy with a round face peered into her compartment. “Oh, hullo. Have you seen my toad?”
