Platform 9 and 3/4 was already bustling with activity, and the train wasn't set to leave for another ten minutes, at least not according to Corey Lockwood's timing. She brought her fingers through her long mane of silken burgundy colored hair and smiled, allowing her chocolate colored eyes to take in the area around her. She was searching, in particular, for one person. Remus John Lupin. He was one of her best friends, aside from Constance, better known as Ida, Morris. Still, her family had allowed her to see Constance over the summer, but Remus was who she had to wait to see. She was getting anxious too. Most of it was probably from lack of sleep because her little "gift" had brought her nothing but endless nightmares all summer and all Corey wanted was to be with her friends. They always calmed her down.
She sighed, walking around. Her baggage was already in the baggage car and her backpack was on her back as she looked through the crowd for Remus or Constance or anyone she knew. Finally he came into sight, and she stopped and brought her hand over her heart. At the moment, all Corey was in was a white tank top and a pair of jeans tucked into a pair of boots, but she still took off running and promptly jumped on the unsuspecting Remus Lupin. "Remus!" she exclaimed, taking them both to the ground, but all Corey could do was laugh and look down at Remus. "I've missed you!" she said, quickly helping Remus to his feet and giving him a large hug. For a girl who was petite and barely stood over five feet, she could bring someone to the ground.
"Come on, we still need to find Constance and Sirius. I'm sure James and Peter will find us." she said, quickly grabbing hold of Remus' and leading him through the crowd as best she could. She couldn't suppress her excitement, despite her being completely and utterly exhausted really. She sighed, and looked around, jumping up occasionally to try and see over people taller than she was. She gave a look of defeat. "Remus, I can't see anything in this crowd." she pouted.
Sirius Black couldn't wait to return to Hogwarts. This last summer had been brutal. He left his parents' home and went to live with one of his best friends, James Potter, and since then he hit the ground running. He had set up his side of James' room that they shared, sent letters to his friends tell them where he was now, and he was visiting with all of his friends. Of course there were some he wanted to see more than other. Like Remus, Corey, and of course, Ida. Their single Hufflepuff friend with fiery hair and beautiful eyes. James often teased him about his thing for Ida, but Sirius couldn't help it. She was nice to him, and she was beautiful. She was a wonderful friend, and if not for that small fact he likely would have asked her out already.
"Looks like you, me, and Remus all have a thing for red heads." he could hear James from a discussion earlier that summer. It was no lie that Sirius was able to contain his crush for Ida rather well. Partially because he always had girls barking up his tree. James had been after Lily Evans since their second year, and Remus... Remus and Corey were best friends, but they could see something more. Harboring from more than one side. Corey was a fun-loving person who brought out the best parts of people, and in Remus. Remus was her voice of reason, and to watch them look at each other always made him smile.
Sirius had been so caught up in his thoughts that he smacked right into someone when he went to board the train. Constance Ida Morris. He smiled and helped her up. "Sorry about that, Ida. Been a bit too excited to pay attention. Can you believe we graduate this year?" he asked her with a smile before his brilliant blue eyes caught sight of Remus... And then Corey. He waved to them and then looked back to Constance. "Come on, let's get a compartment before everyone else boards." he said to her.
