Platform 9 3/4 September 1st - 10:30 AM (Train leaves at 11:00 AM) "Mother! I'm perfectly fine. I have Mashi and I'm sure my lovely friends will be here soon. I should go save them a seat, don't you think?" Haley Gilmore spoke with Daisy in a impatient tone. Her father, brothers, and grandmother could not make it to the train to watch Haley leave for the year, so of course Daisy was trying to make up for it by being everyone at once. "Now, Haley. Don't rush me off. I want you to be safe and have fun. Learn a lot!" Daisy kissed Haley on the forehead, her bags were already in place on the train and Haley held her cat in a small cage next to her. Haley's anxiety made it hard for her to do certain things and sometimes leaving her mother and getting on a train made her anxiety act up, so Haley would bring her small brown cat on the train to calm her down. Though it seemed her three best friends were just as good as Mashi in the category of calming her down. Haley quickly got onto the train and headed for second to last seating area on the train, on the left side of course. This is where they always sat-Annellisse, Alice, Holland, and herself. This is where they met when they were just tiny little 1st years. Haley was the first to arrive, she sat down and let Mashi out of her cage to sit on her lap. Haley sat with her ankles crossed, starring out the window, and mindlessly stroking Mashi who purred and slowly fell asleep. Haley's brown hair is naturally curly, but today she tamed it and threw it up in high pony tail. So the brown mesh of curls fell along the middle of her back. Her newly pressed uniform was as comfortable as always. "I can't believe it's year three. We have electives this year, Mashi. And I think it'll be nice." Haley spoke softly to herself as she continued to stare out the window, letting her mind drift off to imagining this year.
