Return of the Dead



Nightmares
 





It was dark and cold. A snake slithered into a graveyard. A man looked at the graves of Lily and James Potter. This was his chance to redeem himself. He poured the metalic blue liquid onto the graves. The snake let out a slow hiss. The man turned around. Fear was shown in his eyes. Little did he know that miles away a boy had been watching.
 

"Harry wake up."

Harry was shooken awake by a worried and slightly dishelved Ronald Weasly.

"What happened?" Harry asked. He reached for his glasses on the nightstand next to him.

"Two in the bloody morning and I wake up to you talking in your bloody sleep. You wouldn't shut the hell up so I decided that if I can't sleep you can't either. What was that all about anyways, mate?"

"Thanks Ron." Ron didn't make any sign of response. Instead he waited for Harry to explain. Harry sighed.

" I saw Wormtail. He was pouring something over my parents graves. There was a snake I think it was Nagini. You know, Voldemort's snake. Anyways, Wormtail turned around and saw the snake. He looked frightened. Like he was doing something he shouldn't have been."

Ron's mouth hung open slightly. "Wow Harry that was ...wow. What do ya reckon Pettigrew was up to?"

"No clue."

"No clue about what?" a girl with mousey, brown hair had entered the room unnoticed by the two boys.

"Bloody hell, Hermione. You scared the life out of me."

" I doubt that. If I had, you would have stopped screeching." Ron threw a pillow at her.

"Ha. Ha. Very funny Hermione."

"Whatever Ronald. No one answered my question."

" Harry had one of those dreams again. " Hermione turned towards Harry, expecting some kind of explaination. So Harry went into detail about his nightmare. They spent the majority of the morning interregating Harry over every little detail.

"Harry, are you sure the snake was Nagini? If Peter was serving Voldemort, why was he scared when he saw Nagini? Are you sure it..." Hermione was cut off by Ronald.

"Hermione, calm down. Let a man breathe." Hermione looked annoyed but silenced all the same.

"All I know is that I have to visit my parents graves and soon." No one said a word. All were thinking the same thing. What if the nightmare was real?

"We've been talking for hours." Hermione said. Apparently trying to lighten the mood. Phlegm has probably tried to run Mrs. Weasly out of the kitchen by now. Breakfest is probably ready." Hermione sped out of the room.

"What's her problem?" Ron asked heatedly.

"She's had an overdose of Phlegme. That's all."

"So you too. Honestly, Harry, can anyone call her Fleur?"

"Lets think about that. No!"

"Why does she hate Fleur so much?"

" Oh come on Ron. Fleur prances around like she owns the place half of the time. Fleur is a nice person but she is a bit shallow."

Ron stayed silent. Lost in thought he sat down next to Harry.

"You know Harry, I...I th... I think a like Hermione more than a friend." He mumbled quickly.

Harry grinned. He had guessed Ron wanted more than friendship from Hermione. He was just glad Ron realised it.

"About time you came to your senses."

"W...What. You mean you knew and you didn't tell me."

"Would you have listened?" Ron made a face. Then sighed.

"I would have told you that you had lost it."

"Exactly." Harry got up to go down for breakfest but Ron grabbed his arm.

"What if she doen't feel the same? What if she likes someone else?"

"Trust me Ron, she feels the same."

"How do ya know?"

"Think about it Ron."

Harry made his way to the door and down the flight of stairs, leaving Ron to think things over.

"Harry it iz so good zhat you have come." said a tall, slim girl with silvery blonde hair. The girl pulled him into a quick hug.

"Nice to see you too Fleur."

"Oh 'Arry, always so sweet. Molly and I are cooking breakfest. Sit." Harry did as he was told and sat across from a rather annoyed red-head.

"Phlegme bother you much?" The red-head asked.

"No Ginny. Well yeah just a little. Think you can manage Hogwarts without us?"

"Who said I was going to Hogwarts?"

"You're not?"

"No. I'm going with you lot. It took me a while to convince mum but there is nothing anyone can do to stop me."

"But Ginny. I don't want you to get hurt." Harry pleaded. The two had dated for a while. No one knew the mysterious reason for their sudden break-up. The reason being that Voldemort would come after Ginny if he found out they were dating. Ginny didn't care but Harry did.

"You have nothing to worry about. I won't get hurt. Please Harry. Just let me help you."

"Ginny, I love you I don't want to see anything happen to you but there is nothing I can do to stop you. Is there?"

Ginny smiled. " Nope."

She wasn't just smiling because he won't try to stop her but because he said he loved her. She had been unsure the reason he broke up with her was because of Voldemort. Now she knew.He loved her.

Hermione heard their conversation and smiled to herself. She was glad Harry had admitted his feelings instead of hiding them from everyone. She glanced at Ginny. Ginny never had looked so happy.

Molly Weasly came to the table some how managing to balance five plates of food in her arms.She set them down with gace and ease in front of each person. She looked at Ginny and wondered why she was smiling.

Ron climbed down the stairs that led to the kitchen. He look around everyone was smiling. Why? Well Fleur was always smiling so he won't bother asking her. Hermione and Mrs. Weasly kept looking between Harry and Ginny. Something was up. Ginny and Harry kept stealing glances from each other.

"Good morning." he said as cheerfully as possibly. He had moped around for weeks because of a fight with Hermione. Ron looked Hermione straight in the eye and winked. Hermione blushed a shade of crimson. Arthur Weasly sat enjoying his breakfest oblivious to everyone's strange behavior.


I know  Harry gives in to Ginny  wanting to come along a bit too easily. Its pretty sappy at times as well. It gets better I promise. At least, I think it does. Please review.
