Once he was out the door, he flew off in the direction of England, delivering the envelope to its recipient, Ginny Weasley.
"Never underestimate the great Sophie Autumn Palmer," she whispered as she slid the scrapbook into her backpack.
"Have we met before?" the man questioned curiously, his brows knitting together.
"My parents are my parents, Jake. I don't care what you have to say, or what's supposed to plausible. No one else out there could be my parents."
"And what do you think they did down there, Palmer? What did you do about that?"
"I promise I didn't do anything to the food, it's safe," Louis reassured.
"I think you're ready to really fly now," Louis said. She shook her head at him quickly. "Oh, come on, you've done great this far. It'll be fine, I promise. I won't let anything happen to you."
Standing up, she grabbed her bag and made her way towards the exit of the changing room. Before she could leave, Fred stopped her and said, "You're not going to be alone in dealing with this. Louis and I are going to be there, and you have your whole family, right? It's not going to be easy, but we're going to make it a little less hard."
All of the air that had filled Sophie's lungs escaped her. Her throat was dry and tears welled in her eyes. Her heart was beating wildly as she began to feel sick, and the color in her face drained.
Her eyes opened and she looked around in befuddlement. Harry helped steady her, and he eyes landed on Sophie again, her stare scrutinizing as her brows knitted together. Sophie bit her lip and looked away from Ginny.
"Will you shut up?! Just shut up!" she suddenly screamed, her emotions now overcoming her. "Don't you think I've been questioning my decision after all these years?! Do you think it was easy lying to you?! To my family?!"
"We're already a family. I'm not going to let this girl ruin what we have. Now, if only I could figure out how I'm going to do that…"
"If you were honest from the beginning things may be completely different!" Ginny shouted as she stood from her chair.
"A guest? Of course. The standard guest practice would be letting the owner of the house his or her plans, as to just disappearing for hours driving them bloody insane."
"I better get going."
As soon as Sophie finished, Professor Trelawney let out a shaky sigh and patted Sophie's shoulder. "I wish I could say that you had the sight, but I really can't. Unfortunately, I can only see great misfortunes coming your way. Be careful what you eat, my dear, it could be the thing that haunts you."
"Y-You mean?" Mrs. Weasley started, not able to finish her question.
"What are you doing here?" Ginny asked as she pulled the curtain further around the bed.
"No, I don't have to."
"What would you call it?! There's been lies inside of lies inside of lies! Can you even find your way out of them?!" Again, he didn't respond. "Just get out of here, Harry. Get out of my face. I don't want you. I can hardly even look at you!"
"I've had a couple short months, not even that, with her, to get to know her. Then I come to find out that you've seen her and continued to see her through the years! You've had time with her that I should've had! You've had time with her that I will never have or could possibly ever have with her!"
You two have Sophie. Get yourselves together, work together, and make sure that you BOTH are there for that little girl. Merlin knows that she needs all the support and love she can get. She doesn't need two of the most important people in her life to be bickering.
"It's not going to happen. Take a deep breath. No one's going to be able to link you to anything. It's just her word against yours. There's no evidence to prove you had anything to do with it."
"What is done can never be undone, but the secrets behind them can certainly be unraveled."
At her words, Draco pulled away, stood, and helped Ginny up. He then took her hand and led her inside, closing the door behind them.
"Do you love her…?"
"Why did Mum do it?" Scorpius asked quietly, his eyes on the floor.
"All of those years ago when I made that choice of your or Draco..." She paused and swallowed the lump that had formed. "I chose the wrong man..."
"To new beginnings."
"I'm just scared… I can't lose her again, Draco…"
The five of them became silent. Sophie looked at the four and how upset and defeated they seemed to be. After a couple of minutes of a silent debate with herself, she cleared her throat, and whispered, "Maybe you don't have to."
