Chapter 1 - The Platform
As three families stood together on Platform 9 3/4 you could see the happiness of each parent's face to be sending all their children off to Hogwarts for the second time. "Athena Rose Malfoy!", called out Hermione, seeing her with her wand raised at Harry and Ginny's oldest, James Sirius, "At least keep the wand fights till after the train has left.
The 14 year old girl grinned, turning to smirk at James, who then pretended to be terrified. The Ravenclaw simply rolled her eyes and ran to hug her parents, causing Draco to laugh, "Athena, we'll see you in class."
The girl grinned and simply said, "I know.", before running to her Gryffindor best friend and proceeding to grab his hand and drag him on the train.
Hermione turning to her husband, "I think this is the year those two will finally realize their feelings for each other."
Harry overheard this and chuckled, saying back to his friend, "I think James already has during the summer, I've heard him muttering some things about Athena that don't involve their friendship."
Ginny rolled her eyes at the gossiping best friends, while Luna laughed at the conversation which had been repeated in many different forms since the two's oldest children were 9 years old.
Off to the side of the 6 parents, stood Albus Severus, who had also been made a Gryffindor, with Luna and Blaise's oldest, Letitia Greta, as they overheard their parents talking about James and Athena. Again. "Honestly", Albus said, rolling his eyes, "I hope James and Athena just kiss and get together already, so we wouldn't hear this every year."
Letitia smiled, "They would make a good couple. but you're right. I'm tired of hearing your dad and Hermione talk about it, they gossip more than the Hufflepuff girls in my dorm."
The two third years grinned at each other, before waving goodbye to their parents and boarding the train, escaping the same-old gossip.
This left three of the children with their parents, the closely knit group of Lily Luna Potter, Julian Scorpius Malfoy, and Steltella Amy Zabini. All had become Ravenclaws the year before and were called the "Second Golden Trio", though only two of the childrens' parents had been part of the original trio. The three second years had also become tired of the parents' gossip and quickly left to board the train, waving goodbye to their parents.
