After quite a bit of paperwork Jari was finally allowed to leave the summer school for a family get together but of course he had to be "accompanied by an adult". Before this year he probably wouldn't of minded but after managing to survive Hogwarts nearly burning to the ground, being cut off from pretty much all but a handful of adults, and fighting monsters in the Gauntlet he felt less and less like he needed adult supervision. He felt he was more than capable of taking a port key and finding his way home all by himself but it wasn't really up to him. Despite how he felt he was still a minor and thus he had to be collected. All of his thoughts about being too old for the whole thing quickly washed away the moment he laid hazel eyes on his beloved mother. Rushing to her side and hugging her quickly Jari forgot for a moment that thirteen year old boys don't hide in their mother's skirt folds and squeezed her tighter.

Once they had finished the paperwork and traveled to the location of this summer's Trickett party Jari had almost immediately left her side to catch up with his cousins, Aase and Pixie and Vali had to be around here somewhere. Instead he found his father and younger sister by one of the fireplaces and he stopped to hug both of them. His father told him about the cabins and how they would be staying the night and especially about how clear the night sky was which meant one thing: he could watch for aliens shooting stars. The excitable Hufflepuff marched on to find himself a snack before feeling someone poke him in the shoulder. He heard the giggle and the patter of footsteps running away before he could turn around to see them and in a flash he was chasing after them. "Your it!" One of his many younger cousins shouted back to him as they ran through the room. He barely saw Freya before he was nearly crashing into her, not quite used to the power of his only slightly taller legs. It wasn't much but if he was capable of growing a couple inches in a couple of months it would be no time at all before he caught up with the rest of his classmates; just like his mother promised.

"Maybe." He shrugged with a bright smile in response to her question, aware of his new height but certainly not the type to brag. "I think their hiding," He laughed as another small cousin ran past him and he reached out to tag them on the shoulder just in time. "Your it," The smaller boy turned back to return the favor but Jari quickly followed up, "No tag backs!" And chuckled even as his voice cracked. Turning back toward Freya he smiled up at her and her glass of something fizzy. It was the same stuff the adults drank and then suddenly it dawned on him. She had graduated. She wasn't going to be there to protect them all and show them all the secret passageways next year. It would be so different with out her and the realization made him just a little sad. "Freya, do you think I'm too old to play tag?" He asked absently, still staring at her glass of Champagne.

It seemed like every where he looked the people around him were getting older and naturally that was supposed to mean he was getting older too but sometimes it didn't feel like it. Back at the summer school he had felt like he was too old to need his mother to take him home but now that he was back here, among all of his cousins and family, he felt like the same old Jari. He felt like safe and familiar at the kid's table, looked forward to his parents kissing him goodnight, and most of all wanted to play tag. It was like he was stuck between two pages of a book unable to commit to either.

He nodded when she replied to him, her words made sense, truly they did but it still left him wondering. "That makes sense..." He said as he began to shrug. "I don't know, its just... everything feels different now." He told her honestly and without much hesitation. He didn't want her to think he was complaining because it wasn't all bad but it was new. "Especially after everything that happened with the dome and stuff things like tag don't seem as important as they used to." He chewed on the inside of his lip as one of their aunt's laughter filled the room from behind him. Jari was supposed to be laughing and having fun but instead he was pulling Freya into this conversation, the young man felt bad for that.

"What's in the box?" He questioned, attempting to change the topic.

It was nice to know that she understood where he was coming from. That was step one in feeling better about something and Jari hated when he was worried about things. Life was so much easier when Aliens were the worst thing he had to worry about. Now he had seen real threats, real danger, real monsters and suddenly the aliens he dreamed about no longer even seemed frightening. It didn't mean he wasn't still going to wear his tin foil hat or anything but maybe he'd leave it off now and then. It was currently stashed in his back pocket for just in case they went outside at any point. Inside the big room he felt safe but if they were going out into the woods he'd definitely be putting it on. "Thanks Freya..." he said slowly, half smiling at her, grateful for the helpful advice.

"Who is staying so far?" He asked curiously wondering if which of the cousins were staying with their parents. If Vali was staying he'd have to watch out where he slept, the young boy was a notorious prankster and more than once he'd been on the receiving end. Maybe this night would be different, if he could get Freya to help him that is. Maybe tonight he could be the prankster. It sounded like fun but honestly the young wizard had no idea where to start. "We should play a joke on someone, a nice joke though." He quickly added a bit more information to his proposal, voice cracking again as he rushed to speak. Jari didn't want anyone to get hurt, not even their feelings, that would just be the worst.

"You up for it?"

He smiled when she agreed to help him with the little plan and watched her hands as she moved to pass off the key box. He was excited to stay in the cabins, the tree houses were really cool and magical. When his mother said they had rented out a whole tree for the family party he was a little confused by what she meant. He'd heard of some pretty strange things growing up magical but renting a tree was a new idea. When they had finally arrived though he completely understood and was in awe by the whole thing. Glad to be here with family Jari let Freya lead him out onto the balcony and was once again impressed by the trees. They were high up in one of the bigger cabins.

The cool night air was a welcome respite from the warmness in the cabin and Jari smiled into it. It was breezy high up in the tree houses and he couldn't help but grip the handle tight and lean over it to take a look down. "Its so far..." He trailed off, excited by the adrenaline coursing through his body and then she brought his head back into the game. "Right!" He turned back toward her with a grin and rubbed his hands together in thought. He didn't want to do anything really mean so they would have to stick to the simple pranks. To be truthful he wasn't exactly a professional at pulling pranks. Actually he had never really pulled one only been on the other side of one.

"Um I don't really know?" He hoped she wouldn't turn around and decide he was too boring. He could tell her stories and be goofy all day but he may of bitten off more than he could chew with this pranking thing. "I guess jokes are more Vali's thing, I've never done one? Do you have any ideas?" He was excited to do something fun. "What if we hid a plastic snake somewhere? I know Aunt Astrid is creeped out by them?"

"Oh no then never mind! I don't want to make her cry lets not do that!" He immediately began to prattle on and verbally back step, the worry in his eyes was genuine. He was not made for this kind of thing. He was too warm hearted and not nearly mischievous enough but for some reason tonight he felt like doing something completely out of character. Jari was trying to figure out his place and who he was and doing things he wasn't used to sounded like a good way to narrow it down. Last year he had been so comfortable in his own skin, so sure of himself, but as he shot up in inches it seemed like he felt shorter than ever. He wasn't sure what he was good at anymore or what his purpose was. He wanted to know though. And more importantly he wanted to have a fun night so he took a second thought about their plan and then giggled. He tried to imagine what his sister @Janne Trickett would do if he dyed her hair a different color and then he shrugged. "What if we make all the cookies float?" Jari really was pitiful and pathetic at this pranking business. Not to mention he had the sense of humor of a thirteen year old boy, fart jokes and ridiculousness were pretty much his whole repertoire.

"I'm really excited to go back to Hogwarts, is that weird? With the dome and everything?" He second guessed himself but talking to Freya was easy and soon he was rambling on again in his usual way. As always when Jari got excited about whatever he was saying he began to wiggle around and use his arms to really emphasize his points. "I'm taking advanced astronomy classes at summer school but the telescope at Hogwarts is like way better." Nodding along as he grew more and more excited about the coming term Jari felt more like his old self. He was obsessive about the things he liked, he was an all in kind of Badger and he never stopped loving the stars. "Aliens can't hide from me forever Freya." And he meant it too. Committed to his cause one day Jari Trickett was going to discover life on a distant planet. He would be in the history books for all time, but of course he wasn't in it for the glory. He wanted to find the Aliens first, just in case they were mean, so the human race could protect itself. He hoped they weren't, but he was prepared just in case. His hands went down and slid into his pocket, fingers touching the smooth tin foil reassuringly.

"You sad not to be going back?" He wondered, an empathetic half smile on his face as the night breeze tossed his longer hair from one side to the other.

He was relieved when she said that he wasn't weird for wanting to return to Hogwarts school of magic. She seemed to understand where he was coming from and that made him feel even more comfortable talking to her. Despite all of the terrible things that had happened even during Jari's short career at Hogwarts he still felt at home at the castle. It had a way of becoming a big part of every witch and wizard's life that it touched. There was something truly magical about it, she had that right. "Exactly, and this year I'm going to pass potions." He said proudly, his chest puffed out just ever so slightly because he was working really hard at becoming better at not setting himself and his cauldron on fire. So far he was making improvements but he was far from getting a potioneer's award.

Jari was used to the less than enthusiastic responses he got to his alien obsession but he was far from insulted by it. He wasn't in this game for the glory or the recognition, he didn't need others approval or encouragement, he was doing this for them. He wanted to protect his family and the human race and all of the wonderful creatures that called Earth home so he kept one eye on the sky. He was prudent in his mission and it didn't matter of his sister was the only one who believed him. An army of two against and entire alien race, Hufflepuffs weren't exactly known for quitting when things go tough. "Thanks." He said with a warm smile but took it as a cue to move away from the subject. He could drone on for hours and sometimes he would but tonight he wasn't trying to alienate himself.

Listening to what she was saying and really thinking about her response the nearly third year nodded. He couldn't really relate because he was so far off from having to become an adult and find a job but he tried any way. "Oh yeah, does she let you touch the treasure?" He asked, having heard more than one tale from Erika about buried treasure and dives to sunken ships. In his mind their cousins wasn't just some Gringott's employee but a world wide explorer extraordinaire. She was a hero and now Freya was going to learn to be just like her and Jari couldn't of been more excited. "Have you gone on any treasure hunts with her?" He asked, jumping right to the fun stuff and accidentally brushing past her mentions of paper work.

Flinching at her words he moved to open his mouth and correct her but before the words came out she had already fixed it and Jari smiled up at her. "Yeah, not yet." He said with a bit of a grin, he was not really looking forward to when he had to take the big tests. He didn't do very well on exams in general and the ones he'd taken so far didn't really even matter. He sometimes wondered if they made them take them every year just to get them used to it for NEWTs and OWLs. He supposed it was a good idea to let the students know what they would be in for. He was two seconds away from falling into a deep worry about the tests he was going to have to take years from now, a worrysome look falling onto his rounded features, but then the train was successfully brought back on the tracks and they avoided the crash entirely.

He wiggled with excitement as she began to tell him about the treasures she got to work with. It was all to thrilling to hear about from Erika but it was even better from Freya. He had always really looked up to her, she had been there the first day they all arrived at Hogwarts what felt like forever ago now. She let him sit with her at the Lions table even though Aase and him were sorted into Hufflepuff instead. She showed them the cool passageways and secret doors behind paintings and she helped him get over his fear of the ghosts. It was not an over exaggeration to say that Jari might not of survived his first term with out Freya. He definitely wouldn't of thrived in the way that he did and he was thankful to her.

And happy that she got to do something really fun after Hogwarts.

"Really? No way? Really?" He answered in time with her tidbits of information, a mix of disbelief, envy, and enthusiasm dripping off of each of his words. "It shot out lightning?" He could barely believe it when she said it as his hazel eyes grew wider. "That sounds so awesome." He wanted to wave a magic sword and shoot lightning, who wouldn't? "Like the Pyramids in Egypt? How did you get there? Was it really hot? Did you see any Mummies or beetles?" He hadn't read too much into the country but Jari knew all the popular stories, most of which were incredulous but the preteen of course believed in one hundred percent. "Is the paper work boring?" He asked, shifting his weight from one foot to the other as they stood outside.
