When he woke up he felt groggy, he opened his eyes slowly and he noticed saw his parents asleep with their heads on the end of his bed. "Mum? Dad?" Harry said. At the sound of his voice their heads shot up. "Harry that was a very brave thing you did but please, don't put us through that again!" Lily said "I'm sorry Mum but nobody would believe us" Harry said then another thought occurred to him "What happened with Voldemort and the stone!" then Albus Dumbledore came striding into the room. "Hello Harry, it's good to see you awake" he said cheerfully

"Sir the stone!"

"Harry, it is alright the stone has been destroyed"

"But Flamel will die without it"

"You know about Flamel" he said happily "He and his wife have enough elixir to set their affairs in order then yes they will die."

"Who is Flamel?" asked James

"He is a very old friend of mine who made the philosophers stone" Dumbledore said "Now I must leave you to get your rest. I have to send an advertisement to the newspaper for a new defence against the dark arts professor" he turned around and walked back to the door. James and Lily stayed for a little while longer talking.

A couple of days later he was walking into the great hall. The banners were all Slytherin green, due to Harry being in the hospital wing they were badly defeated by Ravenclaw so Slytherin took the cup by 170 points. Dumbledore announced the house points then "Yes, well done Slytherin but I have a couple of last minute points to award first to Mr Ronald Weasley I award Gryffindor house 50 points for the best played game of chess Hogwarts had seen in many years" Ron went scarlet when everyone at the table started clapping him. "Next for Miss Hermione Granger for the use of pure nerve and outstanding logic I award Gryffindor house 50 points" Hermione had momentarily disappeared behind her hair in embarrassment at the cheering. "For Mr Harry Potter" the hall had gone silent "for sheer bravery and outstanding courage I award Gryffindor house 60 points" people who could do maths were yelling out "We're level with Slytherin" everyone was cheering loudly. "and finally Mr Neville Longbottom, it takes a great deal of courage to stand up to our enemies but sometimes even more to stand up to our friends. I award Gryffindor house 10 points" the cheering and applause from all the tables apart from Slytherin was deafening. Neville had disappeared under a pile of hugs. On the way to kings cross Harry, Ron and Hermione were enjoying the last few hours of being able to do magic. At the end they all left the train together and met up with their families. Mrs Weasley gave Harry a hug and he said "Thanks for the mince pies and the jumper Mrs Weasley."

"It's my pleasure dear" people were saying "Bye Harry" or "Bye Potter" James and Lily noticed this and was about beaming with pride at him. The little family of three left the station together. When they got back to the Potter house Sirius and Remus were there waiting for them to arrive.
