It was close to dark, and the boy was looking worse for wear. Yet again, he had pissed off Stephen good and gotten one of the worst beatings in a while, plus well, this time, it was time locked in the basement without food before getting kicked out of the apartment for the rest of the night. Max was limping through the streets, swallowing back cries of pain, and turned to the crosswalk, heading across it to curl up in the safety of the station's benches.

He wanted to drink. The sober life was getting to him and, even though it'd been more than a year since he'd touched one, he craved to have a bottle in his hand, forgetting his own name. Of course, he couldn't but...nights like these made him nostalgic. He hadn't told anyone back at the house where he was going. Why should he? Though, even if he was asked, he wouldn't have been able to give an answer. He didn't really have a location in mind. However, he found himself at King's Cross station, maybe to try and go back to a more innocent time, when he was eleven, before his life really took off the way it did. He sat down on one of the benches after an hour of wandering around and, like the boy next to him, curling up didn't seem like a too bad idea. Maybe Logan could sleep his cravings away. He took a look at the kid, didn't seem too old, a teenager maybe, but what took his attention was the bruises and the dried blood. "You know, there are warmer places to go," he noted after a moment. "Aren't you cold?"

He started nervously, eyes flicking up at Logan nervously, a faint purple tint forming and vanishing from his eyes. "K-K-Kingsley?" Max's voice was almost gone, a distinct rasping tone was all that was left. "N-N-N-No s-s-sir."

He raised an eyebrow at his name and wasn't sure if he was stuttering due to nerves or cold but he let it go. "You know who I am?" He asked, running his eyes over his face to see if he recognised him, but didn't. Though, he couldn't really get a good look of his face for obvious reasons. Reaching into his bag, he pulled out a water bottle and a packet of tissues and offered it to him. "For the blood and everything," he said, "though you should get an icepack. Do you have a home?" He frowned at that, realising the possibility Max is just a homeless kid, though...potentially a wizard. "Anywhere you can go to clean yourself up?"

He shook his head slightly, wincing at the waves of pain that swept from that simple movement. "I-I read you-your aura s-signature. S-Similiar t-to Leo a-and D-Dom's." Max explained slowly, eyes fixed on Logan. He reached a shaking hand for the water and tissues, searching his expression for a reason to trust him. "M-Me? F-For m-me?"

He grunted in realisation and understanding before taking another look at the boy. "Where does it hurt?" He asked, "I would have thought the serpents wouldn't let anyone of theirs touch you like this. Were you mugged or something?"

He was surprised by this. His sister, if he knew her well enough, wouldn't let something like this continue and she wasn't exactly known to follow other peoples wishes. Maybe she didn't know the full extent of it or something. He pulled out his wand, shifting to get a better view of him. "Can I see your ribs?" He asked, though it wasn't really a question.

When he did, he pointed the tip of his wand onto Max's skin, muttering 'Brackium Emendo'. Unlike his siblings, he wasn't the best wizard out there and hadn't mastered nonverbal spells but he was good enough to get what he wants.

The pain grew, then vanished slowly, allowing the boy to regain normal breathing patterns and relax slightly. Max adjusted his position on the bench, before wincing and attempting to stand. "T-Thank y-you, s-sir."

"Uh...call me Logan," he said with a small frown. Sir didn't sound right, Logan wasn't that good of an authority to be called it. "Hey, mate...are you sure you should be standing up?" He asked, raising up from the bench, worried the kid might fall.

He watched him with cautious eyes before shrugging, collapsing back into the seat. "If you say so," he responded, "so why didn't you go to the serpents? The poison apple or that burrow of theirs? Or yours, I should say. Why head here?"

He grunted at that before standing up. "Well then, better get started because I am not in the mood to drag you there and see my sister," he responded. That was cruel of him, he didn't really mind his infamous sister but...he tried to stay away from her when she's in he territory. "Do you have any other broken bones?"

An odd nostalgia had come over Brielle after she had waved goodbye to Aqua and to the kids; this was the same-old, yet it had been so long since she had done it, she wondered if the way was still the same. Of course it is, they haven't changed the lighting from torches in a thousand years, why would they change this? The voice in her head piped up, but she shoved it aside.

Glad to finally be rid of her suffocating family, Aline was hanging idly around the entrance to Platform 9 3/4. She wasn't quite ready to resign herself to another year of detention yet, and she was certain the teachers wouldn't be any more interesting than usual so why rush?

The station had Wi-Fi, but she'd been forced to leave her phone back at the apartment, because otherwise all the magical students would have sent it haywire. There was a while yet to go before the train departed, and Brielle found herself wishing Aqua had stayed, if only for the company. Rain, or Mateo, or anyone she might have known was either invisible or not there. That said, she just idled with little else on her mind, rather bored.

She glanced at the clock, vaguely registering the other girl but not paying her any heed. There was still an hour left until the train departed, thankfully, but she decided to keep an eye out for a time when there were less muggles milling around. What did they see, when someone went through the barrier? There were too many muggles for none of them to notice the teenagers running into a wall and vanishing, after all.

At some point she began to hum, absentmindedly, an old jingle from a commercial - there was little to do, so she watched the few people disappear through the wall.

He was at King's Cross with his parents... who had gone off chatting with some other friends of theirs. It seemed strange to him that his Dad would mingle in a Muggle area... but he ignored it for now.

Merlyn had demanded she got to walk through King's Cross on her own, kissing the cheeks of her mother and grandmother at the entrance before she started pushing her cart along. Moving slowly and cautiously, she started to feel like she should've gotten help.

Merlyn moved around the cart, making it where she was pulling it instead of pushing it. It helped with navigating around corners and pillars she couldn't see. Despite obviously struggling, she tried to play it off as she attempted to find where she was trying to go.

Merlyn's mother had tucked her collapsible cane in a trunk somewhere, having meant to walk her daughter to the platform. Otherwise, this wouldn't have been as much of a problem. After giving up, she moved her cart to the side and plunked down beside it with an audible huff, not being aware of anybody sitting around her.

Merlyn had felt like everybody recognized it as a symbol for the visually impaired. Perhaps it was just a problem with children, no matter how close they were to being teenagers. They were still children, at least by the sound of him. "It helps me get around without running into walls or tripping over curbs," she said simply, smiling down at him. "I'm blind."

Merlyn grinned, visibly excited. It didn't root from never meeting another person like her. Her elementary school had been a Muggle one meant for blind children. It was just something she didn't expect. "Really? Well, not all visually impaired people are going to be friends because they have troubles seeing," she said, a bit grouchy now that she realized he suggested that.

Merlyn finally settled on sitting next to him again, collapsing her cane and tossing it on top of what she knew to be her trunk. "Maybe. Anyways.
