Chapter 6: Chapter Six
I adjusted to life in the future and with Harry. I was still totally pissed that I could have a son with James Potter. Yet, I wasn’t. You see, I have been having second thoughts on James since I left the train station last year. Big surprise, I know.
Anyway, I noticed that Harry and James were getting really close. A few times I spotted James helping Harry with transfiguration and Harry helped James with Defense Against the Dark Arts. I’ll admit that I got a little jealous. A part of me wanted to spend as much time as James had with Harry in the past two weeks.
I was doing my potions essay (Snape really wanted revenge on James, Sirius, and Remus) when I looked up and saw that everyone in the common room was gone, except for Harry. I tried to see what he was doing. I was caught when he looked up.
“ Hi,” I said as a blush snuck up my face.
“ Hi,” Harry said.
“ What are you doing?” I asked.
“ Potions essay,” Harry shrugged, “ He always makes it hard for us,”
“ No kidding,” I muttered, “ I tried to be nice to him and all he did was push me away,”
“ I know,” Harry said. I looked up at him.
“ How?” I asked.
“ I fell into a Pensive that Snape was using and saw you and Dad in 5th year,” Harry explained. I nodded to show I understood and went back to my essay. After about five minutes, Harry put his essay in his bag and stood up.
“ I need to go to bed,” Harry yawned, “ It’s after one in the morning,”
“ Good night,” I said. Harry smiled at me before climbing up the stairs to the boys’ dormitory.
I was almost done with my essay when I heard someone come down the boy’s dorms. It was James. He jumped when he saw me. I smiled. In his own way, I guess he was cute.
“ Hi James,” I said. James came and sat on the couch.
“ Did you just call me James?” he asked. I rolled my eyes and nodded.
“ You better not be changing your mind just because you found out about Harry,” James said suddenly. I looked at him and saw he was dead serious. I moved over and sat with him on the couch.
“ Not really,” I said, “ I sort of was feeling differently towards you since the end of 6th year, but I didn’t want to become one of those sick little sluts you always have hanging around you,”
“ They aren’t sluts,” James said defensively, I snorted and James said, “ Well, most of them aren’t,”
I looked at James with a smile. I suddenly felt very stupid and my stomach was flipping very fast. I barely remembered that I was in the future with my 17 year old son and that I was supposed to hate James. Only, I was glad that I didn’t remember any of that. I enjoyed being this close to James.
“ Are you seriously smiling at me?” James asked with a laugh.
“ I am,” I replied.
I couldn’t sleep with Lavender’s snores. I might have been sharing a dorm with her since first year but I never got used to her. Parvati wasn’t easy to get used to either. She would talk in her sleep. It was funny at times. However, tonight it wasn’t Paravti’s words or Lavender’s snores that really bugged me. It was James, Sirius, Remus, and Lily.
Why were they here? Why now? Harry has so much going on in his life right now. Dumbledore had to remember that they left. I mean, it’s not hard to notice that a student is missing if they’re missing classes and all. Harry also said that James and the other Marauders were very loud and not hard to miss.
I sat up in my four poster and stretched. I jumped when I saw that Lily was sitting on the side of her bed face in hands thinking hard. I turned on my light. I startled Lily so badly she jumped right off the bed and landed with a loud thud.
“ Oh, Lily,” I whispered, “ I’m so sorry,”
The other girls in the room moved a little, but didn’t wake up. I crawled out of bed and sat by Lily on the floor. She pushed some of her red hair behind her ear and looked up at me. My light cast a shadowy glow around the room.
“ Are you okay?” I asked, “ I didn’t mean to scare you,”
“ The fall I’m fine with. This whole future thing I’m not,” Lily muttered.
“ What do you mean? Your getting to meet your son! I haven’t seen Harry so happy for years,” I told Lily. I looked at the clock that hung over the door at the other end of the room. It was three in the morning.
“ I know. I love knowing Harry and all, it’s the fact that James and I get married. Hermione, I practically just told James that I like him down stairs a few hours ago,” Lily said. I raised an eyebrow. Uh, hello! She’s supposed to like James.
“ Maybe this is what made you see that James and you are meant to be,” I suggested.
“ Possibly. It’s just that–and I mentioned this to James– what if I only like James because I want Harry to be born?” Lily asked. I shrugged.
“ According to Sirius and Lupin,” I replied, “ You guys were in love before you died,”
“ Really?” Lily asked. I nodded.
“ Great,” Lily continued, “ Thanks Hermione. I think I’ll go to bed now, good night,”
“ Night,” I said. We crawled back into our beds and I turned out my light. I fell asleep quickly. I answered my question: James and Lily are here to fall in love and make Harry happy.
“ Geez, Care of Magical Creatures isn’t as safe it used to be is it?” James asked me as he cradled a burn he had received from the creature Hagrid had provided for them that day.
“ Hagrid has a love for dangerous creatures,” Hermione replied, “ Has anyone seen my quill?”
“ Here,” I said passing her the quill she had dropped. She shoved it into her bag.
“ Thanks Harry,” Hermione smiled. We said bye to Hagrid and started off to lunch. That was until Malfoy and his goons stopped us half way to the castle.
Of course, he wanted to try and provoke us to get into trouble and do something stupid. They’re were only students around, no teachers.
“ Hello Potter, Weasel, Mudblood,” Malfoy said, his eye rested on my parents, Lupin, and Sirius, “ Who else do we have? Another Potter? Black is alive once again? Someone wolfish? And, oh! Another Mudblood!”
James lunged forward to punch Malfoy. Crabb and Goyle stepped in front of Malfoy to protect him while Sirius and I held James back. Malfoy pushed Crabb and Goyle to the side and stepped forward.
“ I forgot,” Malfoy smirked, “ James Potter here has a little crush on the Mudblood, doesn’t he? No wonder why his son likes the Weasleys,”
“ Get lost Malfoy,” Ron snarled. Remus and Sirius were holding him back. Hermione and Lily stood glaring at Malfoy with much dislike in their eyes.
“ Potter, I’m just curious,” Malfoy drawled slowly, “ Have you told Black here about his little trip to Azkaban, yet? I mean, you were quick to tell him about my father’s,”
Everyone stared at Sirius. His face had drained of color and he had dropped Ron. Lily and Hermione were now holding Ron back because Remus couldn’t hold him. ( Full moon in a few days). Sirius looked at all of us.
“ Well, better get to lunch,” Malfoy said, “ Crabb, Goyle,”
They stocked off. When they were out of sight we all let go of Ron and James. He looked at Sirius and then back at me. I knew what they were going to ask. Before James even opened his mouth I had started to explain.
“ Peter Pettigrew framed you, Sirius,” I said, “ He sold out Mum and Dad to Lord Voldemort and then ran for it. You, Sirius, knew what he had done and tracked Pettigrew down. He faked his own death after blaming Mum and Dad’s deaths on you. He killed 12 people and he was thought to be dead for 12 years. He changed himself into a rat and Ron’s family made him a pet. You escaped from Azkaban in my 3rd year to kill Pettigrew. I stopped you and he got away. He’s currently with Voldemort,”
Sirius stared at me. Everyone was. I shrugged and gave a weak smile.
“ Wait, what do you mean I escaped?” Sirius asked, “ No one can escape dementors,”
“ You didn’t lose your mind because you knew you were innocent,” Ron explained, “ You changed into a dog and came up here. Harry kept seeing you and thinking you were the Grim,”
“ I remember that,” Hermione said, “ That
was stupid. Trelawny was a fraud,”
“ Hey, she had that vision about Pettigrew escaping,” I pointed out, “ And that one about me having to kill Voldemort or him killing–” I stopped. I just slipped up about the Prophecy. Ron and Hermione were going to make tell them.
“ Harry what?” James and Lily asked. They were looking at me with worry. I stared and backed away.
“ I-I-I have to go,” I stammered. I spun around and ran.
