Chapter 1 – History repeats itself







‘Hermione!’ the sound of Ginny’s voice rang through her head ‘Hermione, mail’s arrived!’ she ran down the stairs of Ginny and Harry’s new house. Hermione had stayed the night after being too drunk from Harry’s birthday party and awoke with an alarming headache ‘maybe one too many firewhiskeys’ she thought calmly to herself.








‘Here’ Ginny handed Hermione an ivory envelope as well as taking one for herself and handing Harry one. All three of them hastily opened the letters and read their contents with wide eyes.








Ms. Hermione Granger







I would like to invite you to return to the re-constructed Hogwarts to retake your seventh year and NEWTS. I would also like to appoint you Head Girl nevertheless like returning you do not have to accept you may decline and I will fully understand however if you wish to return please reply via owl.







Minerva McGonagall                                                                                                                                 Headmistress of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry







(Attached with the letter was her book list and Head Girl duties.)







Hermione stared at the letter for a minute taking in the context; the only sound was the clock ticking and the steady thumping of 3 shocked hearts. She turned to Harry, who was sat at his kitchen table, ‘well did you get it? Head Boy?’







Harry looked at her after staring out of the window and finally replied ‘no, did you get Head Girl?’














Hermione was confused she was almost certain Harry would get Head Boy but much like before when she thought Harry would be made a prefect she was wrong.







Ginny took a seat at the table and turned to Harry, tears building around the rims of her eyes ‘I...I...I don’t think I can go back, there’s too many bad memories there; it’s been two years and I still can’t face the fact that he won’t walk back through the door.’ She began to sob, the tears falling over the edge into Harry’s chest that sat her down into an armchair and held her into him.







‘Ginny, if you don’t want to go, no one’s going to force you, I’m sure Professor McGonagall will understand.’







Hermione let Ginny cry some more before comforting her ‘I know you still find it hard but no matter what we’ll always be there for you every step of the way. If you tell McGonagall you’ll go and when you get there, if it gets too much Harry can bring you straight back here.’







Harry brushed a few tears of Ginny’s cheek while nodding in agreement.







‘You’re right’ Ginny sniffled and wiped away an escaped tear, then gave a tiny smile ‘I’ll write to Professor McGonagall now.’ Hermione joined Ginny and wrote to McGonagall accepting role as head girl but this left her a big question: Who’s Head Boy?








The quiet clinks of cutlery echoed in the dining room of Malfoy Manor, however stopped when a small barn owl flew through an open window. It swooped low and dropped the ivory letter into the lap of Draco Malfoy. His mother, who was sat opposite him, paused from eating her breakfast to look up at her son.







After the war, Lucius Malfoy was sent to Azkaban, but Draco had been pardoned for his actions and with the information from him and his mother, they helped Aurors to capture the remaining Death Eaters.







All this had meant that Draco, Narcissa and their house elves had been left without Lucius in the mansion.







Draco looked at the seal which had the Hogwarts crest stamped on it, immediately his heart began to race, with shaking hands Draco opened the envelope which concealed a neatly written letter.







Mr. Draco Malfoy







I would like to invite you to return to a re-constructed Hogwarts to retake your seventh year and NEWTS. I would also like to appoint you Head Boy nevertheless like returning you do not have to accept this position however I would be delighted if you would accept this role, if you would like to return please reply via owl.







Minerva McGonagall                                                                                                                                                                 Headmistress of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry







(Attached to the letter were his book list and Head Boy duties)







Draco’s pale face turned a sickly grey; since the war Draco hadn’t returned to Hogwarts out of fear, after all he had lost his aunt (no matter how mean she was) and close friend within the castle walls.







Narcissa, now very worried, walked alongside the long table to where Draco was sat. She snatched the letter from him and carefully began reading.







After a minute or two of silence she turned to Draco ‘well, would you like to return to Hogwarts?’







Draco continued to sit in silence.







‘I’ll go, I’ll be Head Boy and finish my NEWTS.’







Narcissa’s face began to glow she handed him a quill and some parchment and gently encouraged him.







Draco quickly began to scribble on the parchment accepting position of Head Boy then tied the reply to the leg of the small barn owl and sent it on its way.
