“You were looking for me?” Harry asked Gwen as he stepped inside Dumbledore’s office.

“Yes Harry. Come with me.” She said before taking another glance and Dumbledore. He nodded and she walked past him. Harry and Ron both followed her to the door.

“Mr. Weasley, could you please tell Hermione that Harry wont be back until morning.” Dumbledore said.

“Morning?” Ron asked looking back. Harry also looked back bewildered. “When in the morning?”

“Early. Before she will wake up.” Dumbledore said. Ron nodded and left the office. "Harry, when you get back to the common room to see Hermione, please tell her that her father has been released from St. Mungo's."

"Yes Professor." Harry smiled. He was finally all better.

“Anyways, Gwen has something to show Harry that cannot wait any longer. Now you better hurry.” Harry followed Gwen out of the office and down the halls.

“What are you going to show me?” Harry asked as curiosity ran through him.

“You’ll have to wait.” She said smiling slightly.


“Hermione!” Ron yelled in the common room. He waited a few seconds before yelling, “Hermione!” again.

“What?” She said angrily coming out of her room. She was in her pajamas and already looked half asleep. “Where’s Harry?” She yawned.

“Gwen wanted to show him something. Dumbledore said he wouldn’t be back until morning. But early enough to get a couple hours of sleep.”

“It takes that long to show him something?” She asked angrily. “Thanks Ron.”

“Your welcome. Good night.”

“Night.” She went back into her room and sat in her bed for a few minutes before going into Harry’s. It was clean but empty. A few photos were out on his desk and a few books were on his desk but everything else was in his trunk. She got into his bed and fell asleep.


“How much further is it?” Harry asked dragging his feet behind her.

“Oh come on Harry, not too long.” Gwen said laughing at his impatience. They were in a tower that must have been on the opposite side of the Astronomy tower. He had never been this way, but it didn’t look like many had. There were not classrooms down the hallway, only stairs that led to a room. They walked up so many steps Harry was beginning to get tired. “Just a few more.” She reassured him. Just as she said, a few more steps and they were in front of a door. He opened the door slowly waiting for what was inside to come out. He saw Sirius standing in the middle of the room in front of something big and draped with a off white sheet.

“What’s this?” Harry asked walking towards him. Just then Lupin came out from behind it and walked towards them.

“Let me show you.” Sirius said taking the end of the sheet and pulling it off. It was a huge picture with a beautiful golden frame. The picture was a painting of a luscious room with fluffy furniture and paintings. There was a fire that was moving in the background, but where were the people?

“What is it?” Harry asked confused.

“Who’s there?” A woman asked. “Sirius, is that you again?” She came into the picture and looked at Sirius and Lupin, then took a double take and looked at Harry. She had beautiful red hair with emerald eyes. “Harry?” She asked emotionally. Tears ran down her cheeks. “James! Come here! It’s Harry!”

Harry was too shocked to say anything. Gwen moved to his side so that she was in view of James and Lily. “Is that my boy?” James asked. “He sure has grown.”

“He looks just like you James.” Lily said.

“Mom? Dad?” Harry said slowly taking in what was in front of him. “Is it really you?”

“Of course it’s us Harry.” Lily said smiling. “It’s so good to finally see you after all these years. Sirius has told us quite a few things about you.”

“I can’t believe you attacked a Troll your first year.” James said. “Good job.” He received a slap on the back of his head. “Hey, what was that for?” He asked looking towards Lily.

“He could have been KILLED!” She said.

“Oh right. Give him a little credit dear, he did save his friend.”

“Girlfriend.” Lupin corrected him.

“Girlfriend you say? I would like to meet this girl.” Lily said smiling. “Is she nice, is she smart?” She asked sitting down and pulling James down too. “How come she didn’t come with you?”

“She was going to sleep.” Harry said blankly. He was still in shock over seeing his parents. He could finally talk to them. “She’s nice, she’s wonderful.”

“That’s great honey, I’m so proud of you.” Lily said smiling.

“Have you done it?” James asked. Lily punched him in the arm and scolded him.

“He’s too young to have done it already and that’s not a question you should be asking your son.”

“So are you saying you were too young when you first did it?” He asked smirking. This made her shut up and turned away from him. “I thought not.”

“How come I was never told about you guys?” Harry asked smiling at his question but avoiding it completely.

“Actually, we were just moved here. We were at Godric’s Hollow for a long time in the basement before anyone found us. Thankfully they did, I was growing quite tired of seeing the same thing all those years. It was nice to finally get out. Now we can talk with people and catch up on some news we missed while we were gone.” Lily said.

“How long have you been here?” He asked.

“For a couple days.” Gwen said. “It took us a while to get them here. I actually went into Godric’s Hollow, which has been vacant ever since. I went to collect some books when I went into the basement and found them there.”

“That leads me to another question, how come I’ve never been there?” He asked.

“It’s too dangerous to take you there. Voldemort knows about it and where it is. It hasn’t been fixed since the accident.”

“I’d like to go there sometime.” Harry said.

“You will go there, I promise.” She said smiling.

“So how come we have to be stuck in this tower, away from everyone?” James asked.

“Because you cause trouble.” Sirius laughed. “Actually, if it’s all right with Harry, we would like to move it into his common room. That way you can be there.”

“I don’t think he wants us around all the time. After all he is 17, sharing the same room with his girlfriend.” James said. “Oh yeah, congratulations on making Head Boy.”

“Thanks.” Harry smiled.

“Tell me, where is Kate?” Lily asked changing the subject.

“She’s still in the hospital.” Lupin said. “I’ve been around to check up on her, she’ll be okay in a week or two. She just needs her rest.” Lily nodded. It was a family reunion Harry had dreamed of. His parents were finally there.

“I would like to meet this girlfriend of yours.” Lily said.

“You’ll meet her.” Harry said smiling. “I’m sure she’ll want to meet you.”

“Are you close with her?”

“Yes, very. She’s been there for me more times then I can count. I love her.” They all smiled as their Harry was growing up. They talked for a few more hours, catching up about issues, family, friends, school, and teachers. They also talked about the war and what Harry had been through.

“Snape is teaching?” James said choking. “I can’t believe it. What’s he teaching.”

“Potions.” Harry said sneering. “He always takes points away from the Gryffindors and then takes points away if you don’t know the answer. I swear, the man has it out for Gryffindors. He doesn’t like me either. Ever since I came here.”

“Really?” James asked.

“Yeah, he even had to teach me Occlumency which didn’t work at all.”

“That slime had to teach you Occlumency. That must have been awful.” Lily said. “That man was the worst. I hated him.”

“Anyways, Harry should probably get going. He needs to get some sleep before tomorrow.” Gwen said.

“Good night Harry, we love you.” Lily said blowing kisses. “We’ll talk some more later when you have time and not so late in the night.”

“I love you guys too.” Harry said smiling and getting up from his seats that Lupin conjured up.

“I’ll have some house elves take you down to Harry’s common room.” Lupin said.

“Thank you.” They all walked out of the tower and down the stairs.

“Good night you guys.” Harry said going into his common room.

“Night Harry.” They all said back to him and continued their way. The common room was dark and the fire was almost gone. He went to the bathroom to take a quick shower and then made his way to his room. It was past 2 in the morning and he was tired. He went into his room and found Hermione sleeping in his bed. She looked peaceful and beautiful. He smiled as she was hugging the covers to her. He put on his pajamas and got in the bed. He pulled the covers from her grasp and wrapped his arms around her.

“What time is it?” She yawned and opened her mouth.

“Late.” He said.

“What did Gwen want you for?” She asked snuggling closer to him and closing her eyes again.

“I’ll tell you in the morning.” He said kissing her forehead. He also decided to wait and tell her that her father was better until the morning.

“Good night.”

“Good night love.” He closed his eyes and sleep took him quickly.
