It was an ordinary day in July. Harry and his pregnant for the second time wife, Ginny, were sitting in their favourite place (or second as they say) Rowena’s tree house, with their two year old daughter Gabby (gabby had blue eyes and auburn hair) when the most extraordinary thing happened that would change their lives forever.
“Daddy” said the two year old.
“Yes hunny” replied her father.
“What is this knocky thing for”?
“What knocky thing?”
“This one here, silly”
Harry was confused at what his daughter had said, but sure enough there was one were his daughter was standing. Now he was even more confused, would he not have came across this knocker when exploring this tree house, then again it was pretty big, three floors with a common room and five bedrooms on each but the bottom floor also had another living room, a kitchen and a playroom for all the children to play in.
This tree house was the first home Ginny and Harry had together on their own.
“Harry sweetie come here for a moment will you”? Said Ginny#
“What is it? Are you two ok? What about the baby”?
“Yes we’re all fine but look what we found”
“The horn!! You mean to say it has been here all this time and we have never seen it”?
“Well that’s what it looks like doesn’t it”
“Get Ron and Hermione here quick” said a startled Harry. He was very annoyed that he never found it before, because that would mean the war would be over and everyone would be safe from the monster that is Voldemort.
“Ok Hun whatever you say” said Ginny as she walked towards the fire to floo her head to Helga’s Den. She stuck Her hand in the floo powder and let it go in the fire shouted her destination then stuck her head in the fire then came back out again and within minutes they were here with tiny pops. Ron was holding three year old Millie and Hermione was holding one year old Jill, together they put down their daughters next to their cousin and went to Harry and Ginny.
“What is this about the horn”? Asked Ron
“Well Gabby was playing by the sofa, where she is now, when she found a knocker that was attached to a trap door, Ginny and her looked inside this trap door and found the horn” said Harry” The weird thing is the trap door was never seen before today”
“That’s very weird,” said Hermione, speaking for the first time since arriving.
“Yes isn-” started Ginny, but she didn’t finish as someone had let out a gasp behind her.
“Gabby don’t touch the horn it might not be safe to touch,” said Ginny.
“But it has my name on it” replied her daughter.
“Yes but-wait did you say what I think you said.”
“What? That it has my name on it? Yes look it says ‘ property of Gabriella Ester Potter’”
Ginny looked at the horn (but didn’t touch it) sure enough it had her daughter’s name in Blue and Silver.
“Hermione, some help, please” said a scared Ginny
“I think I’ve read something about this,” said Hermione “infact, I think I’ve got the very book at home, I’ll go get it shall I”?
“And make it snappy, will you ‘mione”? Said Harry, Who was also getting scared.
“Right” and with a pop she had left
Harry had a scared look on his face; Ginny could tell there was something wrong so she asked him.
“Harry are you ok”?
“Yes, but I have realised that she has got at least one of every hogwarts founders qualities; loyalty from Hufflepuff, bravery and courage from Gryffindor, smartness from Ravenclaw and being a Parseltongue from Slytherin” replied Harry
“Oh my god Harry! What do we do”? Asked Ginny, who was now terrified at what would happen to her little girl.
“Well first you are going to sit down, all this stress cant be good for the baby can it? You’re only five months pregnant. As for the next thing, I don’t have a clue” At this Ginny sat down, but just as she got comfortable.
“HERMIONE! DON’T DO THAT EVER AGAIN!” shouted a now very annoyed Ginny
“Sorry Gin” said a very scared Hermione.
“Well, what did you find?” said Harry and Ginny in unison.
“Well I was looking for the book, when I found it this fell out” she showed them the piece of parchment in her hand. “It’s like a prophecy type thing, listen to this”
“The first child of a ‘half blood’ and of a ‘blood traitor’ will combine qualities of
Four witches and wizards widely known.
It will be first chosen for all four.
Together with its father it will destroy all evil.”
“Roughly translated it means that Gabby will have at least one of every hogwarts founders”
“We already knew that” Said Ginny.
“She will also be chosen for every house at the same time and will be, along with Harry, be the downfall of all evil”
“And that means what exactly”? Asked Ron
“It means that Gabby will have to contribute to killing Voldemort”anwsered Hermione.
“WHAT”? Shouted Harry He couldn’t believe what his best friend was saying “SHES NOT DOING ANYTHING OF THE SORT”
“Ok well I am not going to argue for the sake of the children and for time” Said Hermione. “On to the next thing. The book says that; you must be an heir to find anything that belongs to Rowena Ravenclaw, it also says that the heir must be thinking about it or something to do with it and be very close to it to find it”
“Harry what have you been saying to her”? Asked Ginny
“Only a story about an adventure her dad went on to find it,” answered Harry
It was the only explanation for it but it still made Ginny more nervous than she already was.
“So it is safe to say it was all his-ARRGH” Ron started his sentence the felt a sharp burning pain on the middle of his back, but as soon as it came it had left.
“Ron are you ok,” they all asked in unison (apart from Ron obviously).
“Yeah I’m fine now” As he said this he turned around to find his eldest child, Millie, holding a ball of fire, and his youngest child, Jill’s hands glowing with blue light.
“What the-” started Ron, but Hermione’s shouting drowned him out
“Ronald, not in front of the children”
“Ok but look at your girls its scary”
“Right now I’m really scared”
“Lets go home Hermione, Harry and Ginny have enough on their plates without our two as well”
“Good idea Ron, best one you’ve had all day”
So they said their goodbyes and left with Millie and Jill. They had only just realised it was almost teatime and would have to make something for gabby’s tea before she fell asleep.
Harry, what are we going to do? What if she gets hurt”? Asked Ginny.
“As long as I’m alive no harm will come to either of you” replied Harry “Like Dumbledore once said” Harry then pulled out a memory from his head with his wand and put it in a pensive. It was a memory of the wisest of men and greatest headmaster Hogwarts had ever seen. The guy with order of Merlin first class and chief of the wizengamot. In this particular memory Dumbledore said the words;
These words were Latin for hope and faith. It was one of Harry’s favourite sayings, but he had no idea what it meant. It was just another thing to put on his list of things to do.
Harry and Ginny went to bed. They were shattered but neither could sleep, they both had a lot on their minds that they would probably deal with tomorrow. But for now they had to forget about it and at least try sleep. Or they could figure out what to get Mrs Weasley and gabby for their birthdays (which were the same day surprisingly enough), or in Ginny’s case her daughters mothers and husbands as his was only three weeks away and she still had no Idea what to get any of them.
