Reading Between the Lines

Chapter 2

Tears on this envelope

Albus studied the young man in front of him. On either side sat his parents. Currently he was fidgeting while playing with a thread on his robes.

"It is to my great sadness that I have to inform you of this," Albus gravely said as he peered over his glasses. "Young Mr. Potter – Harry, has joined his aunt and uncle in death. He did not survive the night. His injuries were far to great." The sobbing of Molly mixed with the tears of her husband, Arthur, was expected but the smile on Ron's face was not.

"We are here for the last will and testament of Harry James Potter," Arthur informed the goblin with a bow. The goblin gave a nod and led the three into what looked to be a conference room. Inside the room was Sirius (in dog form), Remus, Hermione, Hermione's parents, and a few unexpected people as well.

Draco, Narcissa, Bellatrix (in magical cuffs), Ginny, Bill, Fred, George, Percy, Charlie, Dudley, and Marge sat around the oval table. The door opened to reveal Minerva, Filius, Pomona, Filch, Severus, Irma, and Rolanda – but no Albus. The seven took their seats and the door opened once more to reveal the Tonks family. Once they were seated a goblin went to the front of the long oval table.

"I am Griphook and I am here to read the will of Harry James Potter," he informed the large group. "This is the last will and testament of Harry James Potter being of sound mind and body. I leave to Sirius Black a letter, a photo album, and a copy of James Potter's journal – use them well. I leave to Remus Lupin a letter and 20,000 galleons. I leave to Hermione Granger a letter and 10,000 galleons. Now, Hermione and Sirius make sure Remus gets himself nice clothes. To the Granger's I leave 10,000 galleons. I leave to Draco Malfoy a letter and 9,000 galleons. I leave to Narcissa Malfoy a letter, a way out of her marriage, and 5,000 galleons." Griphook paused for a moment..

"I leave to Bellatrix Lestrange a letter, a way out of her marriage, and 5,000 galleons. I leave to Fred Weasley a letter and 5,000 galleons. I leave to George Weasley a letter and 5,000 galleons. I leave to Percy Weasley a letter and 3,000 galleons. I leave to Charlie Weasley a letter, books on dragons, and 3,000 galleons. To Dudley Dursley I leave a letter, books for Muggles, and 4,000 galleons. I leave to Marge Dursley a letter, a building for your dogs, and 8,000 galleons." Griphook paused as Marge dried her tears and the older Weasley's shifted in their chairs.

"I leave to Minerva McGonagall a letter, books written by Godric Gryffindor, and 20,000 galleons. I leave to Filius Flitwick a letter, books written by Helga Hufflepuff, rare plants, and 10,000 galleons. I leave to Filch a letter, books on magic made easy, and 5,000 galleons. I leave to Severus Snape a letter, translated books of Salazar Slytherin, a copy of Lily Potter's journal, and 20,000 galleons. I leave to Irma Pince a letter, a 100 old and rare book, and 15,000 galleons. I leave to Rolanda Hooch a letter, 80 beginner brooms, 40 Firebolts, 10,000 galleons for the Quiditch program, and 30,000 galleons for her own use." Griphook paused as he drank from the goblet in front of him.

"I leave to Ted Tonks a letter, books on pureblood customs, and 5,000 galleons. I leave to Andromeda Tonks a letter, books on Muggle law, and 10,000 galleons. To Nymphadora Tonks I leave a letter, Auror books, training equipment, and 7,000 galleons. I leave to Molly Weasley a letter and 30,000 galleons. I leave to Arthur Weasley a letter, 30,000 galleons, and a choice of a vacation home – Griphook has the list. I took a lot of thought about this and originally I was going to leave Ron nothing but I leave Ron Weasley a knut – don't spend it all in one place!" Ron blew his top at these words.

"I deserve all that bastard had," Ron yelled. "He didn't deserve any of it and he has the nerve to give me only a knut!" A goblin near him glared at him menacingly and Ron sat back down with the whole room watching him.

"To Ginny Weasley I leave the rest of the contents of vault #628 and a letter. You were an amazing girlfriend and I wished that I had the chance to marry you. Alas, I do not. This is the will of Harry James Potter, so mote it be."

The halls of the Daily Prophet were busier then ever before. Just an hour ago the death of Harry James Potter has been announced by none other than Albus Dumbledore. While the announcement was being made the will was being read at Gringotts Bank. From what they were able to find out a woman, his girlfriend at the time of his death, received the majority of what he had. It was apparently a surprise to everyone that Ginny and Harry had been going out as not even her family knew. When the 29 people came out of the bank Ginny wasn't standing with her parents. In fact, as soon as the press found out she had an announcement to make.

(You-Know-Who) and Where He Comes From:

His Story

"Your name is Orion Païens," Minerva confirmed as she looked down at the application. Orion nodded as he watched her look through the credentials he had. "Well, all seems to be in order. I would like you to take this test and then I will inform you later on this week if you are our new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher." Orion nodded and he began the test with what seemed no problem. After taking 2 hours he finally finished the test and left the room with a bow of respect. Minerva picked up the roll of parchment and unrolled it with a gasp and dropped it. She let the tears roll down her face. At the end of the parchment under the last answer was the words: Harry Potter just woke up from coma.

"How long have I been in coma," Harry asked Dudley as he helped Harry into some fresh clothes. Dudley sighed as he knew that he would have to answer.

"You've been in coma for 9 years," Dudley answered Harry once he was back in hid bed comfortably. Harry did not say anything in response immediately.

"Where is Ginny," Harry quietly asked Dudley as he tried to wrap his mind around the fact that he had lost 9 years and that he was 23 years old.

"She is stuck in a meeting at Hogwarts but she will come as soon as possible," Dudley informed him. "She is the Transfiguration teacher and Gryffindor Head of House – the youngest so far." Painfully a smile stretched across his face. His girl had gotten the job she wanted. At that moment a blur of red slipped through the door.

"I'm so sorry it took me so long to get here," Ginny said as she kissed Harry as though her life depended on it.

"How is everyone doing," Harry managed to ask once Ginny had comfortably snuggled into his side. Ginny looked up with a large smile as she played with his hair.

"Dumbledore retired," Ginny said as she went through her list of people that Harry would want an update on. "McGonagall took over as Headmistress. Snape is the Deputy Headmaster. Sirius was finally cleared and he is now working as an Auror in America. Remus married Nymphadora Tonks and they have a 4 year old son named Teddy. Hermione and Draco got married and they have a 2 year old daughter named Elle.

The Granger's retired and moved to America and visit their granddaughter whenever possible. Narcissa and Lucius got divorced and she got cleared of all charges of being a death eater. Narcissa and Severus got married and have a son named Tyler. Bellatrix got divorced and was cleared of all charges of being a death eater. She cleared her system of that potion and she is now working as a healer at Hogwarts with Madame Pomfrey.

Bill got married and they have a girl named Rene. Fred and George have started their own joke shop – Weasley Wizarding Wheezes, Percy married Penelope and is an adviser to the Minister of Magic – Theodore Tonks. Charlie is dating someone on the dragon reserve but he won't tell us who it is. You know how Dudley and Marge are. Filius and Pomona are still at the school. Filch is as well and Mrs. Norris had a couple kitties. Irma is still at Hogwarts and she loves you – those books you gave her are her babies. She got some more books for the school as well.

Rolanda completely revised the Quiditch program – you're going to have to see it! It's amazing! Andromeda is a lawyer in both Muggle and Magical worlds. Mom opened a local clinic and is a certified healer. Arthur is the Head of Muggle Communications." Harry laid there quietly as he realized that someone was missing.

"What happened to Ron," Harry asked in a dead quite whisper. Ginny froze in place as she knew that Harry wanted the answer and she get couldn't get around it.

"He passed away three years ago of heart problems in his home alone," Ginny informed him. "Mom found him when she came by to bring some food and nag him to finally get a job and to get somewhere." Harry wrapped his arms around her and pulled her tightly to him.

"I'm so sorry Gin," Harry whispered to her. "I'm so sorry."

"Ginny, can I please get out of this bed," Harry asked yet again. Ginny sighed.

"Fine but I am helping you," Ginny relented. She helped Harry out of his bed and they moved to the library. To Ginny's surprise Harry seemed to only be having a small amount of trouble walking. Once they got to the library Ginny helped Harry to a chair and turned around to examine the books.

"What do you want to read," she asked him as she eyed the shelves. She turned around to look at Harry only to see him kneeling on his knee with a ring box open.

"Ginerva Molly Weasley, my lovely Ginny – will you marry me," Harry asked her.
