Set on the platform for the NZ Express!
As Theia stepped onto the train platform, her heart felt overwhelmingly heavy and her stomach swirled with sadness. For her entire life she had anticipated boarding the train to Hogwarts and beginning the rest of her life. It was a step that would lead to the amazing witch she wanted to be, that symbolized the start of her learning and a step she always thought she would take as she held hands with her mother. But she was instead standing on the platform with the handle of her trunk in hand, and the rest of her family behind her. A realization that caused tears to form in her eyes. In the space of one year her entire life had changed and she reminded herself everything was different now. Even if she wished with every fiber of her being for her life to return to the way it once was, her mother was gone and she was made to take this step on her own. To move forward into a new stage of her life trying to be strong regardless of the madness happening around her.
Sniffling, Theia wheeled her trunk to a stop, and wiped her face with her sleeve as she turned to face her family. Boarding the train to Hogwarts was meant to be a happy moment, with proud families watching as their children left excited for their education. Despite her mother not being with her, and her expectation to be disappointed with the moment that was about to unfold, Theia wanted to feel like the rest of the children going to Hogwarts. She sniffled again as she looked up to her dad for guidance, ready to begin saying her goodbyes.
