I looked at her. She seemed to be at least a few years younger than me at this moment. I never knew my father had a sister. He never brought it up at all. So where had she been all these years?
"What the bloody hell is going on here Lucius?" She asked him. He just paled.
"...but I thought you knew about her."
"Should I? Because I don't. I never even heard her name mentioned until right now." I said. She seemed hurt confused and angry. I looked at Granger. She seemed just as confused as I was.
"I think I'll just go." She picked up Teddy and walked out. I watched wanting to go with her, but I knew I had to stay.
"How did you get here?" She asked me. It took a few minutes to explain everything to her.
"So you really are from the future?" I nodded my head. She got up and whacked my father on the back of his head.
"Ow! What was that for?"
"That's for keeping me in the dark! This is for never mentioning me! And this one is because I want to!" She did it two more times before she sat down again. I could barley control my laughter. His face was as red as Weasley's hair.
"Anyway nice to meet you finally Draco."
"Nice to meet you too."
"Roxanne you have to go to your common room now."
"But it's late! And I can't be out there by myself!" She whined. Lucius rolled his eyes.
"You should've listened to me earlier that way this wouldn't happen." I slowly backed out of the room leaving them.
I walked down the hall and stopped when I heard something close. I went to follow it but saw nothing there. Just a statue of an old witch.
The next morning
We needed a plan. The diadem was already gone, so all we needed to get rid of was the ring, diary, snake, cup, locket and me. Well not actually me just the horcrux inside of me I mean. I sent a message to everyone to meet me in the Room of Requirement. We had to start planning where and how we were going to get them.
I walked in front of the wall three times. When I stepped inside they were all there except Fred and George. It was arranged like the Gryffindor common room only smaller. Ron, Hermione and Ginny were on one couch, Malfoy, Pansy, and Zabini were on another, Neville and Seamus were playing wizard's chess, Lavender was sitting on an armchair and Luna was looking out the window that had materialized on the wall.
"You'd think no natural light could get in, but this room is truly a mystery." She said dreamily.
"Where are Fred and George?" I asked.
"They uh..might have went to Hogsmeade..."
"That's what I said! But you know them and how they are. They said they'd be careful, but won't make any promises." Ginny said.
As if on cue the door opened up and they walked in.
"Speak of the devils...." Lavender muttered.
"If by that you mean 'devilishly handsome' then-"
"Thank you." George smirked.
I rolled my eyes. "You wish." They sat down on chairs they made appear. Harry cleared his throat and we all turned to look at him.
"We all know why we're here. We have to track down the last horcruxes. The diadem is gone so that means we 6 more. The hardest ones to destroy will be the snake and me."
"Well we already know where one is. Malfoy Manor. The tricky part will be finding it." Hermione said.
"I could help with that. I know the manor well and could help locate it. I just need to know where it could be."
"That's would be good if you could go in looking like you. It's too risky, Draco. We have to find a way in without giving our indenties." Pansy said.
"I remember that the ring was in the Gaunts house. Dumbledore had gone to the house before the start of 6th year. If I'm correct it must be there right now."
"Then let's go right now! Dumbledore wouldn't mind would he?" Lavender asked.
"It's not that simple. There could be all kinds of enchantments on the house and-"
"We'll never know until we try!" She stood up. "For all we know he could be out there right now destroying more lives and we're just sitting around!" She stormed out of the room. It was silent for a few minutes.
"There's a reason she goes by her mother's last name." Seamus spoke up. We all turned and looked at him. "Her father was killed in a supposed 'gas leak', but really it was caused by the dementors. You-know-who had sent them to terrorize muggles. Her mother had been pregnant with her for 4 months when this happened. She was heartbroken when she found out. Her and her mother both."
"She never told me." Ron said.
"She didn't want anyone to know." Seamus got up and left the room.
"Maybe we should continue this tomorrow." I said and got up and left.
"I'll be in the common room. I'm afraid Sirius will be trying to levitate Teddy off the ground again despite what Remus says." I said getting up a few moments after Harry left.
"I'll see you all later for dinner. I need to speak to him." Ginny said as she left the room. Her brothers exchanged looks, but didn't speak.
Everyone strated to walk off either together or in separate groups. I heard footsteps behind me and turned around. Malfoy was a few steps behind me.
"Hey." He greeted sounding a bit distracted.
"Hello." I replied. I slowed down enough so we were walking side by side.
"Are you heading to the common room or...."
"The common room." Malfoy answered.
"Must be strange about your aunt being here." I said breaking the silence.
"Very. It makes me wonder what happened and where she's been all this time."
"Maybe here you'll find out," I stopped in front of the door and looked over at him.
"Maybe." He said quietly. There was a silence between us, but it wasn't the awkward kind. It was more relaxed. Suddenly the wall opened followed by a couple yells.
"MAKE HIM STOP! MAKE HIM STOP!" They heard Sirius yell as they saw him run around the room. Teddy was crying and it seemed as though everything was in chaos. Diapers were thrown everywhere, toys were all over the floor and there were food stains on the couch and on their clothes. Teddy's face had some food on it meaning they must have tried to feed him, but failed. It seemed as though the four boys had a hard time taking care of one child.
James and Peter were trying to clean up things quickly as they saw us walk in, Sirius was running around the couch where Teddy was crying shouting and covering his ears and Remus was trying to calm both of them down.
"Everybody stop!" I yelled. They all froze except for Teddy who was trying to escape Remus's hold. I went over to Teddy and lifted him from Remus's arms. He also seemed to be needing a wash since his clothes are messy as well.
"I can see you boys had a little trouble." I said as Teddy began to calm down and rested his head on my shoulder.
"No way! He'll calm down for you, but not us?" Sirius exclaimed.
"He probably likes me better." I laughed. "I want the four of you to start cleaning up. And take a shower too. It looks like you all had a food fight and lost. Malfoy can you help me clean up Teddy?"
He nodded and followed me to the bathroom. I filled the sink with warm water and undressed Teddy to clean him. I put him in and held him carefully. Malfoy got a clean small towel so I culd clean the food off his face.
"Remind me to never leave him in the care of Sirius Black." I said as I washed Teddy's hair.
"Will do." He laughed. I couldn't help but notice that he seemed different when he smiled. Almost as if he was a different person. I smiled.
(gonna be a time jump with a little bit of info in between)
That night was silent for everyone. Their meetings happened once a day. They managed to find a way to get to the Gaunts house and through the protections. There was no possible way that these spell would work the way they wanted to, but like Lavender had said they had to try.
Dumbledore had shown their parents their memories. Some of the couples couldn't wait to see what was in store for them in the future, but the future Parkinsons were worried. Pansy had been a little distant with them. How do you tell your parents that the daughter they hadn't have yet would die?
Fall was soon coming and part one of their plan will have to be done soon. They all grow closer together and are slowly learning to trust one another. Not to mention that sparks are flying....
