Quin Splintley twisted her way through the crowd, dragging her trunk and new owl(in a cage) behind her. As she saw the scarlet train through a gap in the bunch of people, she arched her neck and squinted over many heads before she spotted her parents, who waved and smiled as she boarded the train.
She waddled down the isle, weighed down by her trunk, and managed to slide open a compartment door. There she hauled her trunk into a luggage rack and sat down with her owl on her lap. It was only then that she noticed the two people with whom she sat.
