    Priam Lestrange's children and wards were brought to the gate of Hogwarts via carriage, where Meta was separated with her relatives. Her sisters and her cousin took off on the carriages to the castle, whereas Meta was escorted to a growing group of other first years. Meta felt somewhat lost in the crowd. She couldn't see any of her friends that would also be starting at Hogwarts that evening!

    She finally spotted some familiar faces when they were ushered towards the boats. Meta was torn - she was at the front of the group, so she could get to one of the boats sooner. That would also mean that she'd have to leave her friends behind - at least until they reached the castle.

    Eh, getting to Hogwarts sooner rather than later was more of a priority to Meta!

    She jumped into a boat randomly. When she realized who the other passenger was, Meta got an awkward desire to leave, but it was too late. The boat had already embarked.

    Where was Alcyone?

    Maddy craned her neck to look for her cousin as she sat at the bow of her rowboat. This, she decided, was the downside to her friend living in Hogsmeade—after all, had they ridden the train together, they would be together now!

    She gripped the wooden sides as the boat began to rock, looking to see if it was Alcyone who had joined her. Nope, she realized with disappointment, face falling, it was a stranger.

    Correction: it was the bratty girl from the park!

    No sooner had the brunette opened her mouth to ‘invite’ the girl to find another boat when theirs took off, leaving them with a literal and figurative half-empty situation. Maddy closed her mouth, looked away, and did her best to mind her manners so as not to make the situation worse. Regardless, though, this was not how she wanted to start her time at Hogwarts!

    The brunette from the carnival didn't seem too pleased with Meta's presence. At least she didn't start lecturing her on how impolite it was to just jump in someone else's boat, or whatever!

    In fact, the other girl didn't say anything. Meta had nothing to say either. Awkward silence, it would be!

    The brunette had gotten the front, so Meta stuck to the back. She placed a hand in the water and waved it around as they sailed. That was until she caught a glimpse of something down there! She lurched forward to get a better look!

    The rude girl’s abrupt movement shook the small rowboat, and Maddy had to fight to steady herself.

    “Careful!” she snapped.

    It didn't take long for the other brunette to start acting like a governess again!

    "I saw something in the water!" Meta snapped at her boat-mate. She turned around to glare at the girl. "You know, legend says that there is a giant squid that eats insufferable people before they can get to Hogwarts." She gave her an antagonistic smile.
