CHAPTER 1: MUFFALETTA

King’s Cross station was an absolute nightmare. Amongst the bustling crowd of business men, students, and scores of tourists in the like, a family of three was rushing through the station like their lives depended on it. Oswin Sodhi had no chance to speak to her muggle friends in the chaos of leaving, and she immediately regretted it. She had woken up late this morning, and her parents in their frantic schedule had almost forgotten what day it was. She gripped on her mother’s hand tight and looked ahead, her father heaving all her trunks down the narrow stretch of concrete on the platform. He walked in long, steady strides with a determined frown on his long face. Getting a good look at him, no one would think he was Arun Sodhi: Celebrated Author and part-time professor at the New Delhi Academy of Magic. This man who was so well renowned looked a right mess. His dark hair was sticking out on all sides from bedhead, and his shirt was buttoned unevenly. His round, thick-rimmed glasses hung on the end of his rather largish nose, and a dark brush of facial hair spread across is lower jaw and neck. Her mother, Odilia (although everyone called her ‘Delia’), was looking far more put together. Although she wore minimal makeup and a simple long-sleeve and jeans, the most attention went into her hair. Her thick twist braids were pulled up to a simple top knot bun with a few strays in the front hanging down to frame her face. The girl herself always admired her mother and her talent for braiding, which is why she didn’t object to having her own hair styled the same way in time for school. Her own braids hung low to the middle of her waist, and they bobbed every which way as she sprinted towards platform nine and three-quarters.

From the corner of her eye she saw Navinia, a third year Ravenclaw carry her screech owl in a cage far bigger than she was. Her twin brothers Rob and Simon were at her side hauling the trunks. They were older by three years, and they finally looked the part. The summer had treated them well. They went from two scrawny, scrappy looking boys to distinguished, cunning-looking men. They were kind enough to give Oswin and her parents a wave as they rolled by with their carts.

“Ozzie, focus please,” Her father couldn’t help but chuckle as she visibly flinched. She had grown out of that nickname, for sure. “Books?”

She gave a solid nod and patted her trunk. “Check.”

“Clothes?”

“Check.”

“Uncle Jenkins’ postcard collection?” Her mother asked.

The girl opened her leather messenger bag to show the wooden box tucked neatly inside.

“Wand?”

She opened her jacket to reveal her wand pocket.

“Good,” Her mother said with a nod, “Now your father and I will be away in India so I’ve stuck the new address inside your trunk, it’s that slip of parchment placed at the very top.”

“Okay,”

Don’t lose it,”

“I won’t!”

“Money for Hogsmeade has been placed in your vault as well,” Her father gave her a cheeky grin and nudged her with his elbow, “Go easy on the Butterbeer this year, aye?”

Oswald couldn’t help but roll her eyes and nudge him back just as hard. They got into a little nudging match, but stopped when Mrs. Sodhi gave her husband a knowing look and ushered them along. The two of them kept a gentle hold on their daughter’s hands all the way into the station.

Planning a trip to your beautiful New Orleans. What do you suggest that I see/do?

If you will be staying in the French Quarter here are some things to do. I don’t know how long you will stay but here is a quick rundown.

Drinks - Need to go to tropical isle for a hand grenade, get it on the rocks. It’s stronger haha. Pat O Briens - Go to the piano bar and have some hurricanes. Another place for amazing burgers is called Port of Call and they have a drink there called the Monsoon. Enjoy.

Food - Deanies has piles of seafood and crawfish. If you want a Po Boy you can find them anywhere in the French Quarter. Tujagues (pronounced Two Jacks) & Crescent City Brewhouse are good spots. If you want a famous Italian Sandwich and aren’t afraid of Olives go to Central Grocery for a Muffaletta. So good. You can split a whole one. Cafe Du Monde for Cafe Au Lait and Beignets (they only take cash). The French market has food in it along with shopping for anything in a flea market style but those are all in walking distance in the French Quarter.

Sites - Jackson Square, St Louis Cathedral, Bourbon Street, I love walking down Royal street, They have hnoc.org museums on Royal for free also. If you aren’t scared I would go check out a cemetery. All graves are above ground. They are like mini monuments of random people. I would say don’t go alone and go during the day. Street car ride is fun down St. Charles Ave. Camellia Grill is great down that way. You can see the garden district and the Audubon Park and Zoo are great. Casino if you want to. It’s like a normal casino with a New Orleans theme. Canal Street is nice also but don’t go too far up Canal Street, stay closer to the river.

Hope this helps. :-) thanks for following.

Any followers have more suggestions for her?
