Background: Font color:
Harry, Hermione, and Ron walked to where everyone was standing. Sirius was to be buried in a magical cemetery, but to muggles it looked like a regular one. So they wouldn't attract attention, everyone was going by car. The mourners were also asked to wear all black, like the muggles do. Ron thought it was because Sirius' last name was Black.
The trio slid into the limo with Remus, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, Tonks, and various members of the Order. Everyone looked upset, but Harry and Remus were the only ones that looked depressed. People tried to make conversation with them, but they didn't feel like talking, so they were left alone. Ron and Hermione didn't talk much and it was because they were concerned about both Harry and Remus.
The cars pulled into a narrow road and they were at the cemetery. Harry and Remus both started crying silent tears again. Everyone got out of the limo and fallowed each other to a tombstone. Not just any tombstone. Sirius' tombstone.
They gathered around the stone, the trio held hands and gave each other supportive squeezes. A bunch of men from they parlor came and held the coffin on their shoulders. Then slowly, the lowered the coffin into the dirt. Sirius was now stuck in a box, six feet under the Earth. Remus walked up toward the coffin and said a charm that the trio couldn't hear and the Earth patched up. People stood near the grave and said their last good-byes. As much as Harry wanted to forget it, he knew that Sirius was gone forever.
And he was never coming back.
Harry turned to see Ron and Hermione looking at him. Concern etched in each of their faces.
"You okay mate?" asked Ron.
Harry opened his mouth to speak, but Hermione cut him off.
"If you say fine, I swear, I will hex you into next Monday."
Harry laughed a little.
"I'll live. This isn't really where I would have planned to spend the day, but I'll be okay.''
Remus walked over to the trio. He needed to know how Harry was. Remus was upset, but he wasn't depressed like Harry. Harry was blaming himself for the death. It wasn't his fault Sirius died. Nothing on the force of the Earth could have kept him away from the Ministry that night. Harry needed to know that.
"Are you gonna live?"
"Yeah, I'll be okay. You?"
"I miss him, but I know he'd want me to be happy, but I can't be happy yet. Right now I've gotta mourn before I get on with the rest of my life."
Remus walked away.
Harry made his way to the grave for his Final Good-Bye.
"Good-Bye Sirius. I'll never forget you. I love you."
Ron and Hermione watched as Harry said Good-Bye. Hermione cried silent tears for her friend and Ron held her hand. He whispered in her ear, "He'll be fine. Give it time."
How she wished that would soon come true.
