He offered her a smile of consolation of sorts, because she seemed to have had it rough this term from when he'd found her cowering and hiding before she'd been sentenced to the room. "Ashley, hey. Jelly slug?" He asked casually, reaching into his bag to pull out a bag of the candy.
What was he doing this summer? "Uh ... getting a broom, i hope. And maybe trying to convince my mom to homeschool me but I doubt that will work." He grinned. "You ... feel okay?"

I need to replace my broom! Do you think I can get insurance money for the old one? It cost lots of money, and I think if it got blown up by a cult, that should qualify as something my insurance will cover. Otherwise, I'll have to pay out of pocket." She sighed and ate the jelly slug. Well, at least she could afford to replace it. She felt bad for the classmates who couldn't afford replacements- should she buy them brooms too? "Nah. Not very okay. But when I get back to Australia, I will. I'm going to go surfing, get a boyfriend, and hang out with Claudine for a day, and I will totally feel okay after that." Totally. She nodded convincingly, not quite convinced herself. "I can't believe I'm going back to Hogwarts next year." Like, was she TRYING to be sad? Because going to Hogwarts was a great way to be sad. She sighed. "I'm mostly only staying to make a point." Make of that what you will.
Isabella get onto the train in the back, hoping to find a compartment for herself. She had survived her first year at school and should be happy, but she wasn't not after this rough year. The evil cult had took away the fun so she wasn't sure if she wanted to go back for a second year. If Apollo went back then she would too she supposed, but reluctantly and with no expectations. Maybe a break would be good for her?

As if on cue Apollo's familiar head popped into view in one of the side compartments, holding out a bag of was that jelly slugs to Ashley? She had wanted to be alone. but the universe wanted differently. It was no use to argue so Bella walked up to the compartment, pushed open the door and stuck her black haired head in with a small smile pursing her lips. "Hey guys, have you got room for one more?" Gesturing to Apollo's bag of glorious sweets she pleaded. "Please say you have jelly slugs and chocolate frogs in that bag to share Apollo?"
