Chapter Fifteen: With Hope In Our Hearts, and Bricks In Our Hands We Sing For Change
Harry woke up to blurs around him. He tried to speak, but all that came out was a groan. Apparently that was enough for a blur walked towards him and put his glasses on his face. Dumbledore smiled at him. "Quirrell! The Stone!" Harry began to panic.
"Do not worry, I've taken care of the stone and Professor Quirrell."
"So you came? You found us? How? Where's Star? How did I get the Stone?" Harry asked rapidly, like the reporters would.
"Yes I found you. I saw you leave your common room and I could only guess where you were going. Star is fine. She and Miss Hermione have been waiting for you. As for the Stone, I'm very proud of that one actually. See, I made it so that whoever wanted to find the Stone, find it, not use it, would be able to." Dumbledore explained everything.
"How long have I been out? Where's the Stone now?"
"Three days. It has been destroyed."
"Wait, then won't Nicolas Flamel and his wife die?"
"Yes, they will. But 'To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.' Now, get some rest. You're going to need it."
"Wait, sir. Can I see Hermione and Star?"
"No Harry, but I can get Ron if you want."
"No thanks." Harry said while he rolled over and went to sleep. Dumbledore frowned at him. He needed Ron to be his friend, not Hermione, and defiantly not Star. They would show him how to be independent, and Dumbledore couldn't deal with an independent pawn.
A few days later, Harry was allowed to leave the hospital room for the end of year feast. When he left, everyone was already down there. When he got there, everyone looked at him and began cheering. Apparently the whole school knew what had happened down there. Ron tried to wave Harry over, but Harry went to sit at the Ravenclaw table with Hermione, Star, and Neville and his friends. They were all glad to see he was okay.
After the cheering died down, Dumbledore stood up and made an announcement. "I believe it has come time to award the house cup. The points are as follows, Gryffindor in fourth place with 312 points, in third, Hufflepuff with 352 point, in second, Ravenclaw with 425 and in first, Slytherin with 472" The Slytherin table cheered and stomped their feet. "However, I have some last minute points to hand out. First, to Mr. Ronald Weasley, for the best played game of chess Hogwarts has seen in many years, I award you fifty points." Gryffindor cheered. "And to Mr. Seamus Finnegan for the use of cool logic in the face of fire, I award you fifty points. Lastly, to Mr. Harry Potter, for pure nerve and courage, I award you sixty points." Those who could add were cheering madly, except for Harry, Hermione, and Star however. They knew that those people had nothing to do with what happened. Dumbledore was only giving then points because they were in Gryffindor! "There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies but just as much to stand up to our friends I therefore award ten points to Mr. Dean Thomas." Everyone but the Slytherins cheered. Gryffindor had just won the house cup! "I believe a change in decoration is in order." Dumbledore waved his hand and all the Slytherin decorations changed to Gryffindor.
All throughout the feast, Harry was seething. How dare they get all the points for something someone else did! Hermione and Star were mad as well. The nerve of that guy!
The next day, they had to go back home. In the morning they went to the Great Hall one last time for breakfast. Harry, Hermione and Star sat with Neville at the Hufflepuff table. Dumbledore tried to get up from his chair to speak, but found he couldn't. Unknown to him, Star had covered his chair in superglue before he sat down. After that, she triggered the water balloon that she had hung right above his head. It fell onto him. The purple die seeped all over his hair and clothes. Everyone in the Great Hall laughed as they figured out what was happening. Dumbledore was furious. Although, he managed to hide it during his speech in which he told them to have a good summer, blah blah blah.
On the train, Harry sat with Hermione and Star, enjoying their company more than anyone else's. They were the only ones he could trust right now.
Lily hadn't maintained contact with James, so Harry had no idea what Star's life was like, and she didn't know about his. They exchanged questions and answers the whole train ride. Apparently, Harry's life was more about publicity than actually having fun. He had anything he could ever want, but he never really had any control, the one thing he craved. That was why he loved Hogwarts. There weren't any interviews of autographs or photo shoots.
Star had nothing but fun really. Sure, she went to muggle primary school and all, but James and Remus were fun loving people. They had regular prank wars. Sometimes, they would jump into the floo network and just say something random, seeing where they would end up. Whenever James was working, Remus and Star would hang around and read. James couldn't sit still long enough to enjoy reading. It was funny to watch him try. He was like a five year old in a thirty five year old's body.
"You know," Star said as silence descended upon the compartment, "you probably have a right to see dad sometimes. He and Lily are supposed to have joint custody of both of us."
"Really? So I could come see you and Dad and Remus sometimes?" Harry asked hopefully. He was beginning to think his mother had lied to him about everything.
"Definitely. I think you'd enjoy it." Star smiled at him. Soon the train stopped and they had to leave the station with their parents. The twins waved goodbye to each other. Lily saw this and scowled at Star, who stuck her tongue out at her. James laughed and stuck out his own tongue. As glad as they were to be home, neither of them could wait until next year.
A/N: Okay, I'm sorry, I suck at endings. I'm going to write the sequel soon, but school is starting in two weeks, so I don't know how much time I'll have for it. Expect longer waits in between updates. Sorry, but I'm starting High School and I didn't take Study Hall, plus I have a lot of work for my electives. Anyway, thanks for sticking with me to the end! I'm not sure what to call the sequel yet, I'll post something once I have an idea. I've closed the poll on my profile. Three people voted and it was unanimous that I should write a sequel. And for Deviant-Little-Angel, I hope that's what you meant by learn more about Star. If it's not, then I'll try to do that in the sequel.
