First day back was absolutely fab! I got up and me dad was home from his new job and he wished me a good, safe year and I told him I'd be home for the hols's but he shrugged me off. Will and Bret drove me there; Luken was in the back seat with me; he kept turning to me, like he was gonna say something, but he just sat there, looking like I had died...So! We got to King's Cross, and Will and Bret gave me loads of hugs...then they 'mysteriously' disappeared. This is the convo that struck up:
L: I'm gonna miss you, Maggles.
M: Yeah, I'll miss you too, Oliv- I mean Luken.
L: Can I...I mean...that is...only as friends and stuff..but I'll REALLY miss you n' all...
M: (???) What are you talking abot, Luken?
L: *clears throat* I'm going to kiss you now, Maggie, and there's nothing you can do to stop me!
Well, I guess you can imagine what happened next. It was wet and short, because we were both crying...I've never seen a teenage boy cry like that...It was amazing...
***So anyway, when I got on the train, I bumped into Luna Lovegood, and we had a right talk about Snorkaks and radishes, then I found a compartment with her and Ginny and Neville, and we laughed it up for a bit. Then it got all quite, until me started jinxing each other, THEN it turned to a bunch of laughs. Then I saw Wood and Gwen, and I said 'Hello'...then George and Mari...then Ben waltzed by and kissed my hand and said he was glad to be back with his ladies. I asked him about Grace, then he blushed and ran off with his friend Boston...When I got there, I said hi to Tasha and Izzy and sat with them...Then I heard this shriek from the Ravenclaw table and I turned and saw Tatum waving at me like a lunatic. After supper, (which was fab) I went up to a pink, leopard-spotted dorm, which was AWESOME!!! So, after my conversation with Ron...I went out for a walk around the corridors, got scolded at by Filch for 'prowling for victims' (yeah, like HE wasn't doin' the bloody same thing), and then I just FOUND myself by the Ravenclaw portrait...I knocked on the picture (which swore at me a good bit) until Terry Boot came out:
TB: Whadda YOU want?
M: Umm...is Tatum Devonshire in there?
TB: Yeah. Oi!!! TATUM!!! IT'S MAGGIE LONGBOTTOM WHAT COME TO SEE YOU!!!
Then, me and Tatum had this TOTAL reminiscing time and we ended up in tears about how stupid we were (laughing tears) and then I went to bed:) And now...lessons again! And its OWLS this year, too...Boy, am I nervous!
