Her group of friends were a strange and mismatched lot, Lydia thought with a smile as she adjusted her book bag on her shoulder and made a mental list making sure that she had packed everything in her now shrunk trunk before leaving her dorm. She was currently in Hogsmeade awaiting her friends coming from all of Hogwarts' four house to reenact the ancient custom of exploring the world, both magical and muggle, after one's graduation. They had decided to leave as soon as possible, just after their graduation ceremony as they were all extremely excited by the thought of spreading their wings and learning new things hand on instead of in a stuffy classroom like usual. It was going to be a blast, Lydia thought!
Sighing to herself, she decided that buying a better bag for the travel would be good and thus walked to Twillfit & Tattings to browse for a decent and, most importantly, not all beat up, travelling back for her next adventure. She took no time in finding what she was looking for and made her way back to the group's rendezvous point, the Three Broomsticks Inn.
Humming to herself happily, a brilliant smile never left her lips for the whole trip as her lacy casual robes twirled in the evening summer air. A new age was dawning, she could feel it!
