The next morning Hermione got up early and walked down to the Great hall with a new respect for the woman who brought Harry in to this world. She walked in to the Great Hall with a smile on her face, and she noticed Harry sitting on the Gryffindor table.
"What are you doing up so early?" asked Hermione.
"I couldn't sleep, so I came down here to eat." answered Harry.
"Oh I see. Harry can I ask you something?"
"Do you remember your mom?"
"No, I wish I could, what I remember is what Im told about her."
"She must have been a wonderful woman."
"Because she brought you into the world."
The rest of the day was pretty uneventful until that night.
"Harry, Im going." Said Hermione getting ready to leave for her detention.
"Ok, do you want me to walk you down?" asked Harry, who was hopeful.
"No, its cool." said Hermione, who left.
Harry was sitting in the common room when Ron came over with a huge grin on his face.
"What’s with you?" asked Harry.
"Want to play a game of chess?" asked Ron.
Two hours later Hermione came back from her detention when she found Harry and Ron playing Chess, she walked over and sat down on the couch next to Harry.
"How many games have you been playing?" Hermione asked Harry.
"One, we've been playing this game for two hours." answered Ron. "I reckon he's finally getting good."
". . . Knight to e4. Well I got a lovely gift for my birthday, it was called Chess for Dummys. and I think it has had an affect on me." said Harry.
"Who gave it to you?" asked Ron.
"Me." Said Hermione Quietly.
"What!!!" asked Ron, who's face started to get red.
"Hey, Im no where near your chess level, its just my defense it good." said Harry.
"Pawn to d6. . . well what’s true." answered Ron who calmed down, visibly.
Hermione leaned over and whispered something in his ear. which made him laugh."
"Rook to A6. Check Mate." Said Harry. "Ha I win! for once."
"How'd you do that?" Asked Ron who was shocked.
"I studied, well good night. Im going to bed."Said Harry who got up, gave Hermione a hug and left.
"You told him, about the check mate. Didn't you?"asked Ron.
"Yes, well good night." Said Hermione as she ran out of the room. When she got into her room she sat on her bed and took out Lily Evan's journal.
September 18, 1980
With in an hour, I will be Mrs. Lily Potter, can you believe it! I can't wait! well i have to get ready, I will write more later.
Hermione was excited, she wished she was there to see it.
I did! I married James. Sirius, Remus, and Peter, where James' best men, but other than that it was so beautiful. Now we are on a plane going to America, for a honeymoon and our plane is about to land, I’ll tell you more later. Bye.
Hermione finished and laid there in her bed thinking. ‘Lily is a wonderful person maybe. . .no’ she thought and fell asleep.
*~*Flashback*~* (Hermione’s Dream)
“Dearly Beloved we are gathered here today, to witness this wedding of James Potter to Lily Evans, are there anybody who doesn’t wish for them to get married, please speak now.” Said the Pastor.
Hermione couldn’t believe what she was seeing, this is exactly what she imagined. She walked in and sat down next to a younger Dumbledore.
“This young couple wish to exchange their own vows. James you may go first.”
“Lily, I’ve loved you since the first moment I saw you but didn’t know it until our fifth year at school. I know I haven’t been the best person to get along with, but Im glad you can put up with my problems, or we wouldn’t be here today. I love you so much and I promise to protect you from anything. Im glad I am marrying you. You’re the only one I see my future with, the mother of my children, grandmother to my grandchildren. I love you, and I am glad to spend my life with you.”
Said James, Hermione had tears spilling down her cheeks, ‘well that’s where Harry gets his ability to say the right thing at the right time.’ she thought.
“Lily, its your turn.” said the Pastor.
“I can’t exactly tell you the moment I fell in love with you, James, maybe it was when I was a scared little girl aboard a train for the first time, or when we got in all that trouble, but I fell in love and was too scared to do anything about it until we bought that house in Godric’s Hollow. When you asked me to marry you it was like a dream come true. And I knew with out a doubt you were my soul mate, I love you James. And I am excited to bare your children and watch our children grow.”
Hermione was stunned, this was the wish of a lady who died protecting her son, and hopefully she would carry out giving the grandchildren they would never know.
“. . . I pronounce you man and wife, you may kiss the bride.” and that’s exactly what he did.
Later in the dream Hermione found herself at the reception, she saw a lot of people she recognized like Minerva McGonagall who was dancing with Albus Dumbledore, Cornelius Fudge, the rest of the Marauders (those who aren’t married now) Arthur Weasley and Molly Weasley with Bill, Charlie, and Percy, she was obviously very pregnant with Fred and George. Then there was Severus Snape. ‘I wonder what he is doing here.’ thought Hermione. She saw Harry’s aunt Petunia, who looked almost completely drunk.
Hermione walked over to a table and sat down. She watched Lily and James dance, she was happy for them, even though she knew their fate.
After awhile of sitting down, some one came over to her.
“I don’t think I know you?” Said the man to Hermione.
“Oh. . uh. . Im one of Lily’s friends.”Hermione lied, which wasn’t really a lie, after all she knew Harry which was close enough.
“Really? Im Sirius Black, what’s your name?”
“Im Hermione . . uh Hermione McGonagall.” Hermione wanted to laugh, but decided to let it go on a little while longer.
“Really? Are you related to Minerva McGonagall?”
“Oh, she is my cousin.”
“Oh really? Did you go to Hogwarts?”
“No, I went to Kangaroo Paw, its in Australia.”
“Oh so you’re an Aussie?”
“You can say that.”
“Sirius, you have to do the best man speech.” Said a pale looking Remus Lupin.
“Fine, oh Remus this is Hermione McGonagall. She is from Australia.” Said Sirius matter-of-factly.
“Oh, and Sirius can you tell me where Australia is?” Teased Remus. Sirius had a blank expression. “I thought so. Now get going.”
“Fine, fine. Hey Hermione do you want to dance with me after?”
“Yes, that would be lovely, mate.” Trying to sound Aussie like.
Sirius stood on the table and started to give his speech. “ Good evening everybody. If you don’t know im Sirius Black, and you know James is the best friend a guy can ask for, and I’m happy that Lily and James got together and I have to tell you these two are the blindest people, anyone has met. They kept dancing around each other but im glad they got together, but what can I say I love you guys, have a good life together.”
When Sirius finished, he went to find Hermione.
“You owe me a dance.” said Sirius coming up to her.
“Ok.” answered Hermione getting up to dance.
After a couple of minutes of dancing James noticed Sirius dancing with a girl he didn’t know. He leaned over to Remus and asked. “Who’s the girl?”
“Hermione McGonagall. She’s from Australia, Sirius is absolutely wild about her.” Answered Remus.
The song ended and Sirius walked Hermione over to Remus and James.
“James this is Hermione, Hermione this is James.”
“Nice to meet you.” said James.
“It’s a real pleasure to meet you.” said Hermione.
“Well I have to go find my bride, its awesome meeting you.”Said James walking off.
Hermione walked around the reception, looking for nothing in particular until she saw the wedding guest book.
She walked over to the book and took the quill and began to write.
My name is Hermione Granger I know you don’t know my, but I know everything about you, you guys are wonderful! and I wanted to tell you thank you for everything you have done for you even though you never knew me. I know we will never cross paths again and tell Sirius, he is a good man. And I really like him. He is a honest, true man and would never do anything to betray you. Tell him I will see him again and he is in my prayers, good luck Sirius and James and Lily. And im sorry for lying.
With all my heart and soul.
With that Hermione walked out of the reception and out of Lily and James’ lives. Hermione started to walk away when Sirius walked over to her.
“Herm, where are you going?”he asked.
“Home, my time here is done.” she said.
“Will I ever see you again?”
“Yes, you won’t recognize me, but you will and that’s a promise.”
“Good Bye, Hermione McGonagall.” said Sirius sadly.
Hermione turned and gave Sirius a light kiss on the lips. “Good Bye Sirius.” She started to walk off and then Sirius grabbed her arm and pulled her to him and kissed her again, more passionately.
“You can’t leave me.”
“I have to.” With that Hermione left.
When Sirius walked back in Lily looked at James and asked. “Did he have a girlfriend and didn’t tell us?”
“No, he looks like he was turned down, by Hermione McGonagall.”
“Aw, she stole his heart.” said Lily. “Poor Padfoot. He’ll find someone else, I know it.”
And that was what ended Hermione’s dream.
Hermione woke up with Lavender Brown watching her. She sat up and yawned.
“Have a crazy dream?” she asked.
“You were talking in your sleep and you said something like good bye Sirius. And it was is an Australian accent. Are you seeing someone named Sirius and didn’t tell me?”
“No, Sirius is an old friend.”
Enjoy, I will add more later. Thanks for all the reviews.
