The zoo is a splendid way to interact with the muggles. Just imagine what trouble we can get into. Tom was excited at the prospect of seeing real animals as opposed to devil dogs and fluffy.
"I hope they will let us ride some elephants." exclaimed Ginny "I tried that once but the animal was way too large and I was afraid of heights."
Harry looked at his wife quizzically. "So what did you do?"
"I shrank it, but I got caught and they kicked us out. Dad was madder that spit and that's when they sent me to Hogwarts."
"Very well! No shrinking allowed." This from Hermione, "I want to enjoy the day."
With that the Potters zapped there luggage back to their flat and the foursome took off.
Upon arriving at the zoo entrance the friends reviewed the rules. no hocus pocus, and behave like the other muggles unless of course something desperate happened.
Ginny rode an elephant and enjoyed it thoroughly from upon its back she could see for miles, and snapped a few photos with her digital camera. Next they went to the monkey house and saw the apes and gorillas having a blast for their audiences. They stopped for tea and crumpets in the rare bird sanctuary. A parrot landed next too Harry.
"Awk Hogwarts." It said.
Harry tried to look nonchalant but the colourful and annoying bird kept squawking at them.
"Witches and Wizards at 3 o'clock."
"I was born on a pirate ship. Do some magic Harry."
Harry tried to shush the bird before people started to notice the commotion.
"Be quiet you noise box or I'll have you plucked and stuffed!"
"Gonna have to catch me first! Harry Potter is a wizard. Awk."
The muggles were starting to look their way. The group was looking concerned; if someone figured out their secret all hell would break loose.
"Desperate" asked Tom?
"I would say so." Harry looked at Ginny and Hermione and they in-canted the disappearing spell.
If the devil be at your back.
Nod your head and
fade to black.
Poof, and the foursome disappeared. They reappeared in front of the movie theatre and were scratching their heads, wondering how the parrot knew who they were.
"We were mugglish and the silly bird figured us out anyway." Tom was clearly confused.
"Way too close for my liking." Hermione exclaimed and Ginny nodded in agreement."
Harry spoke up next. "Let's go see the hunger games before something else happens."
