Chapter 2: Chapter Two
A/N: Thnks for reading!! The names are obvious, but I didn't want to change their first names. Anyway, here's the next chapter.
Dumbledore appeared at the door and ushered Hermione and me inside. My eyes found the guy who looked so much like me. Only his eyes were different. The boy was looking straight at me, but not in confusion like before. No, now he was watching me in delight and amazement. I tried to flatten my bangs on my forehead to hide my scar.
“ Professor, who are these boys?” Hermione asked, “ They appeared out of no where,”
“ These three had just been transferred here from Beauxaton. This is James Peterson, Sirius Burns, and Remus Lauder,” Dumbledore explained. Hermione and I shook each hand as the names were called out.
“ This is Harry Potter and Hermione Granger,” Dumbledore continued.
“ Of course you already knew Harry,” Hermione said with a smile. I flattened my bangs on my forehead again and James ran his fingers through his hair and made it messy. Odd, that habit was familiar.
“ Actually,” Remus said, “ We never heard of him before,”
Whoa. These people didn’t know me!? My dream has finally come true. Of course, now they did know me, so my dream is gone. Still, how did they not know me? I mean, come on I’m famous. I sound like a conceited prat.
“ You can catch up later,” Dumbledore said, “ Mr. Potter, Mrs. Granger, I’m asking you to show these new students around,” he brought up three pieces of parchment with his wand and turned toward the three boys, “ Here are your new schedules. Good Luck,”
Then Dumbledore pushed us out the door and down towards the Great Hall. Hermione and Remus immediately started a conversation. That was when it hit me.
Remus? James? Sirius?
If there were a Peter I would think the Marauders have come back to life as 17 year olds. Well, Remus Lupin was still alive, but I dunno, the magic world still surprises me. We were half way down to lunch when I saw a red headed boy hurrying towards us. My friend Ron.
“ Harry, Hermione! What took you so long?” He asked when he made was in front of us, “ I was in the common room for what seemed like forever,”
“ We have to show new students around,” Hermione said, “ They just transferred here. We have to show them around,”
“ Why would you transfer in your 7th year?” Ron asked, then without getting an answer he stuck his hand out, “ I’m Ron Weasley by the way. Who are you?”
“ I’m Remus Lauder, this is James Peterson, and this is Sirius Burns,” Remus said. I noticed he was stepping on James’ and Sirius’ toes.
“ Amazing,” Ron said, “ You have the same names as Harry’s dad and his friends. If only Peter were here,” Ron spat out Peter’s name like it was a disgusting food.
“ You say Peter like it’s a bad thing,” James said, “ Why? Did he do something?”
“ No,” I said sarcastically, “ He only sold my parents out to Voldemort,”
Ron winced at the name but I completely ignored him. If Peter hadn’t told Voldemort where my parents were, my life wouldn’t suck so bad. James was gasping at me.
“ Why?” he asked.
“ To be in his inner circle, you prat,” Ron snapped.
We were sitting down at a the Gryffindor table by now. James sat next to me and Sirius on the other side. Hermione, Ron and Remus sat on the other side across from us. I was very awear of the people looking at us.
“ Wasn’t Peter your parents’ friend?” Sirius asked.
“ You know that, but you have no idea who Harry is or what he’s famous for?” Hermione asked. I noticed a red headed girl heading towards us. My stomach flipped. Better be hunger.
“ Who doesn’t know who Harry is?” Ginny asked.
“ Ginny, go away,” Ron said, “ But yeah, how come you don’t know who Harry is?”
“ Dunno,” James said, “ What’d you do that was so wonderful?”
“ Voldemort murdered my parents and then couldn’t kill me,” I muttered. I pushed my bangs up to show my scar, “ This was the best he got of me,”
Boys can be so stupid sometimes. I mean, I took one look at James Peterson and knew that he was James Potter. First of all, they looked alike. Second of all, James couldn’t pull his eyes away from him. Third of all, he found out the news of his son and Peter Pettigrew quiet shocking. There is not a person in the Wizarding world that doesn’t know Harry Potter’s story. Since Sirius died, we’ve all known his story, too.
Ginny was looking from Harry to James. She saw it, too. She caught my eye and gave me a knowing look, I nodded and she gasped. Harry was playing with the food on his plate.
“ Hey, mate, if your not gonna eat that can I have it?” Ron asked with his mouth full. Harry pushed his plate towards Ron. I rolled my eyes.
“ Hermione, can I talk to you?” Ginny asked me. I nodded and we walked out of the Great Hall and
out towards the lake.
“ Is that really James Potter?” Ginny asked.
“ I think so, Harry hasn’t noticed yet,” I replied, “ I bet you that Sirius Burns, is really Sirius Black and Remus Lauder is Remus Lupin. It’s obvious. They could have at least changed their first names,”
“ I know,” Ginny said, “ Boys are so stupid. They won’t notice it either. Actually, I take that back. Harry would if he was so droopy and sad,”
“ I guess. Ron is totally helpless,” I shrugged.
“ Both of you are in the romance section,” I heard Ginny muttered. I gave her an odd look and she smiled sweetly.
I ran up to the Gryffindor common room. Potter was no where to be found. Neither him or Lupin or Black. I’ve looked around the whole school. I’ve asked people but they have no idea either.
Hesitant, I rushed to Professor Dumbledore’s office. I said the password ( I’ve been here quite a lot to complain about Potter and his Head Boy power) and went up the stair case.
Dumbledore was at his desk writing. I ran up to his desk and he looked up. The twinkle in his eye was torturous. I was so worked up at the moment. I have no idea why.
“ I can’t find James Potter, Sirius Black, or Remus Lupin anywhere,” I gasped. I was out of breath from running.
“ Of course you can’t,” Dumbledore smiled, “ They are in the future,”
“ What?” I asked.
“ They touched something they weren’t supposed to and now they are in the future,” Dumbledore explained, “ I’m writing letters to their parents to inform them that it will take awhile to get them back,”
“ What year?” I asked. I had to know.
“ 1997,” Dumbledore said, he looked me straight in the eye, “ I think that you should go into the future, Miss Evans,”
“ There’s something and someone, you need to know about before this year ends. I suggest you go now. I’m going to perform a spell on the school tonight. They’ll forget about James, Remus, and, Sirius until they come back. I’ll need to make you in the spell, too,” Dumbledore said. I wasn’t going to argue with Dumbledore, so I nodded.
He gave me the odd clock with the years on it and twisted it to 1997. After pressing the blue button, I was flying through time. I landed in Dumbledore’s office and found him looking over me.
“ Lily, welcome to the future,” Dumbledore said. Have a traveled at all? I thought. Dumbledore helped me to my feet and looked at me.
“ You are now Lily Everheart. In time one or three kids will find out that you are Lily Evans, but for now, don’t let anyone know. You know where the Great Hall is. Considering Mr. Black’s appetite, that’s where everyone should be,” Dumbledore pointed me out the door and I walked off.
“ Pr–I mean, James,” Sirius said, “ Look who followed us,”
I turned to where he was pointing. Remus, Harry, and Ron turned as well. I gasped. Lily was walking straight towards us. Her green eyes were–her eyes were just like Harry’s.
I turned to Harry just to check. I practically screamed with joy. I marry the girl I’ve been obsessing over since 1st year. Lily sat next to us.
“ Hi,” she said. She didn’t grab any food but looked over my shoulder at Harry.
“ Are you another exchanged student?” Ron asked. His mouth was full. Just like Sirius would act.
“ Uh, yeah, why not,” Lily said, she looked at Harry, “ Who are you?”
“ Harry Potter,” Harry said, “ You didn’t know me either. France mustn’t really get around, do they?”
I think that was the most pleasant things that Harry had said since I got here. I mean, I found out one of my best mates allowed Voldemort to kill me and, well, Lily, too. I wanted to know more about the subject, but I couldn’t bring myself to talk.
Hermione and Ginny had come back into the Great Hall. They were still talking quickly, like they were trying to finish their conversation. They succeed and sat down. They looked at Lily.
“ Are you Lily?” Hermione asked. Lily looked surprised and I smiled. Hermione, who reminded me of Moony, knew who we were. That didn’t take long.
A/N: Yes, it takes Harry a long time to figure out who the "new kids" are but he has a lot on his mind. Please Read!!!!
