When they woke up in the morning it was a bright and sunny day a rarity at that particular time of year. When they finally managed to get up the energy to actually get out of bed they found that the robes that they had at their house were their including their dress robes. At another glance they noticed that on the table there were pastries and coffee which made the pair of them smile in amusement because of how much they needed their early morning coffee like others in the muggle world and how much people in the wizarding world usually loved their pumpkin juice. They got up had a bath and dressed James in red while Lily was in cream, they cast charms on the robes so they would stay the original colour and not fade or get muddy or dusty no matter what the environment was like. Then they sat down and ate the warm pastries that had had an warming charm on them to keep them warm until they were eaten.
The next step was visiting Minerva who was meant to be in her office, before leaving they put glamour charms on themselves resulting in James's hair sitting flat,, him becoming slightly fatter and slightly shorter, while Lily's made her eyes change to grey and her hair darken to a deeper auburn colour also she made the shape of her face shorter. They were completely unrecognisable and when looking at their appearances they almost laughed when they went to loon around to see who was being reflected. Amused and trying not to laugh too hard they left their rooms and went to find Minerva.
A moment after they knocked on Minerva's office door, her grumpy voice from within said "come in!" when they quietly opened the door, Minerva raised her eyebrows at their appearances, immediately they drew their wands and got rid of the glamour charms allowing her to see them as they were. She looked slightly amused. "Well Lily and James I've been expecting you, don't worry about explaining how you are alive Albus has already told me." They both felt relieved. Minerva then continued gesturing at the two seats in front of her, "take a seat." They sat down and she looked at them expectantly, they rose their eyebrows questioningly. Nobody spoke for a moment and there was a knock at the door. Minerva rose muttering "disillusionment charm" while looking meaningfully at them, they understood, rose moved out of the way and did the disillusionment charm.
In walked the Weasly twins looking as innocent as always. "What did you do this time?" Minerva almost yelled her lips were presses together in annoyance. "Well you see Professor we had potions this morning and well you see we did a simple charm on the class's instructions so that every student would make chocolate but they would be different types of chocolate like white, dark, peppermint, ginger, milk, lemon and so many more. We thought that it was going to be really cool but some of the cauldrons wasn't cleaned properly and when some of the Slytherins tasted their chocolate I think they had vanilla and hazelnut, anyway they ate it and offered professor Snape some anyway what they didn't know was that professor Snape was allergic to hazelnuts, he immediately started to have trouble breathing and as much as we hate the slimy idiot we couldn't let him die on us so we took him to Madame Pomfrey. It was a completely harmless prank we were trialing it to see if it would be a good idea to give the lemon ones to Professor Dumbledore as a Christmas present for next year. It seems promising but I think we'll have to ensure that the cauldrons are clean because also another few people in the class had to go to Madame Pomfrey because one of the potions last brewed wasn't meant to be consumed by humans. Then Professor Snape sent us here saying that since Professor Dumbledore is busy that you would deal with us." The two students seemed a bit worried but then they apparently thought of something else, "Professor why did we see someone who looked like an older version of Harry in the great hall after lunch yesterday? Does he have an older brother because that is the only thing we can think of because he didn't have green eyes and therefore wasn't Harry under a potion. The only other person who it could be is James Potter but of course he's dead so who were they?" The two of them just stood staring as they waited for their head of house and deputy headmistress to reply and or give them their punishment.
"Fred, George you have each lost a hundred points for Gryffindor, you both have detention for the next two months with Professor Snape every night. If I hear another incident your parents will be called. Any more rule breaking this year and you will be off the Quidditch team alright?" she looked annoyed but sounded as calm as if they were talking about the weather. They just nodded silently waiting to see if she was going to tell them about who those people were. She frowned and looked questioningly at the corner in which James and Lily were standing. James was finding it hard to prevent himself from laughing at how harsh her punishment was yet how lenient because of the lack of quidditch banning at the moment. If he didn't know better he would almost say that in the time since the marauders had left Hogwarts their old house leader had gotten a bit soft but with the loss of two hundred house points they were going to need all the help they could get to catch up again. He knew that she was asking them in the way of the look in their direction if they wanted the pair to be told the truth and James squeezed Lily's hand she returned it and they undid the disillusionment charm at the same time.
The twins just stopped and stared at them looking shocked, it wasn't every day that they saw people who were parents of one of their friends who were alive but were said to be dead. Their mouths had dropped open making them look like goldfish. James and Lily laughed obviously amused at the reactions. "Gentlemen may I suggest closing your mouths so that you don't accidentally consume a fly and so that you look less like goldfish unless you would like to trial the life of a goldfish?" they both snapped out quickly replying "No, no Professor we are quite happy as humans we are just a bit shocked. Mr and Mrs Potter?" at the nods they continued, "We like everyone else thought you were dead but we have to say it is an honour to meet you, we know your son he is a friend of ours and of our little brother. I hope you don't mind us saying so but we do hope that you don't ever let Harry go back to live with his aunt and Uncle which is where he grew up. We went to break him out well he hadn't replied to any of our or our brother's owls asking him to come stay with us you see so we borrowed our fathers flying car. They had bars on his window and Hedwig his owl was padlocked in her cage. It was horrible. Please sir, madam, you cannot allow him to go back there."
I know what a terrible way to end the chapter but well you see I mightn't have time to update for a few days and I thought you may prefer a short one which I left where I wanted to rather that the update previous to this one.
I may update again before I leave but only if I see some proof that there is more than just me who is updating this that is actually reading this story!
Yes that means a review. Can't you spare the time to just write a review at the bottom of a story. It seems so mean to me you all just go ahead and read the story and don't even give me any feedback. It almost makes me want to stop updating hmmmmmmmm maybe I'll do that and see how long it takes
