This is my very first Time-Travel Crossover, so please bear with me :). All right now that, that is finished, ha-ha, I hope you will take the time to read this and review. Reviews are nice you know they help us write more and more.
This will most likely be a slow write because as you know I am writing my other story, The Child of Which No One Knew Part I and the sequel Part II & III, so this story will be a slow progress :).
Pairings will be noted in later chapters.

Chapter 2 – The Training
/Gaelic: The Picts language/
It had been four months since Hermione, Draco, Ron and Harry had been transported back to 117. Ron and Harry now known as Bilius and Cadmus along with Draco or as he is now known as Romulus were standing in a semi circle with another thirty seven other men waiting for their instructions.
"You all will run round this training area ten times. I want no whinging or whining, I will be monitoring you all and I will select only twenty of you for the next section of your training. Do you understand?" The group of forty men all shouted their affirmation.
"Yes General." He nodded and set them to the field. Bilius and Cadmus were running ahead of Romulus and they didn't seem to care.
"I think Ceana is getting to close to that Pict woman, they're always watching the other men and it's starting to irritate me." Bilius said. The two of them turned their heads slightly and caught a glimpse of Ceana and Etain throwing small daggers at a target that they'd set up.
"You see, look at that, the filth is teaching our Ceana her dirty ways." Bilius continued to rant about the two girls.
"Bilius, you're worrying yourself sick, just leave them alone. Ceana is training just as we are and speaking of training if Titus catches us talking one more time, I think we're going to be…" Cadmus never got to finish his sentence for Titus had indeed caught them and was now opening his mouth.
"Bilius! Cadmus! Get your sorry sacks over here, right now." The two of them looked at each other and ran over to the General.
"General, sir." They said in unison.
"You have been told time and time again to be quiet while training, yet there you are talking once again. I've had enough of this foolishness, its high time you two were punished for this. You will be flogged if I catch you again, this is my final warning. Dismissed." They nodded and ran back after been dismissed.
Ceana was just about to throw a small knife at her target when she was stopped by Etain.
"What is it?" Etain looked around and motioned for Ceana to follow her. She took her to a small stream and then sat down. Ceana followed her lead and she too sat down, she placed her knives on the floor in order of their sizes. After they had sat at the waters edge for a short while, Etain got a crazy idea. She tapped Ceana's shoulder and got her attention by pointing to a larger body of water further down from where they were sitting.
Ceana smiled and the two of them walked down to the river and slowly they stepped into the water. Etain put both her hands into the water and then without a second thought she flung the small amount of water into Ceana who not expecting it squealed as the cold water seeped into her clothes.
Etain was bent over in a silent fit of laughter and not concentrating on what her underling was doing, she got a huge fright when she suddenly found herself covered in water. The two of them were splashing water at each other and weren't aware that they were been carefully watched by a women with blonde hair.
"Etain stop it." Ceana laughed. Etain stopped and took deep breaths along with Ceana. They stood drenched in water for a few seconds and not long after Ceana was ridding herself of her clothes and placing them on the river bank in the hot sun. She was soon followed by Etain who too rid herself of her clothes. They both dove into the river water and restarted their water fight.
The two girls were having so much fun that they failed to notice that their clothes had long since dried. Etain finally stopped her ministrations and swam to the river's shore, she climbed out of the river and walked over to where her stuff lay. Ceana watched as Etain lay on her back to dry in what little sun was left and she also noticed that she was naked the only thing that she had with her was a piece of cloth covering her dignity. Ceana finally got out and joined Etain in the sun.
Romulus was scouting the perimeter when he heard giggles coming from where he new the river was, he followed the sound and came across two women floating in the river they had their backs to him. He could see light brown hair and dark brown hair and he knew that they weren't clothed thanks to the fact that he could see their clothes by the river's shore.
He watched for a while as they swam around and then started a water fight with one another, he left them and ran back to camp to get Bilius and Cadmus. After being away from Hogwarts for so long they had started to forget who they really were and had now started to believe the lie that they had told to Agricola almost five months prior.
Romulus arrived back at camp and was told to wash up for he would be going out again to scout later in the evening. Cadmus and Romulus were both to scout the Western territory of the camp while Bilius and Macros would take the South, while four others would take the North and East. They would scout the area for the night and then another team would take the shift of the day. Titus was wondering through the groups that were prepared for their scouting when he heard the sound of laughing echoing through the camp as the two women re-entered the camp.
He stood watching as they walked together, side-by-side all the way to the camp fire, where they both sat against a tree and somehow communicated with one another. Titus had noticed that the Pict was taking the girl under her wing. When he thought about it he also noticed that both of them was never without the other, it was like they were linked together with an invisible chain, he shrugged his shoulders and told his men to get to work.
Once the eight soldiers had gone to work he joined his men by the camp fire and took a swig from his drink. Thax stood up from his seat and in his drunken state wondered over to the Pict women and her protégé and began insulting the two of them. When no forth coming remark was said Thax hit the protégé across her cheek and accused her of treachery. The Pict women was glaring at Thax but she did nothing to protect the girl, not that said girl really needed protection after been trained endlessly by Etain herself.
Titus returned back to his drink and meal when he got tired of listening and watching Thax goad the two women on, but it wasn't long after when he returned back looking depressed.
The following morning saw a man riding into the camp carrying a scroll, he stopped near a few other soldiers until he came to stop beside Titus who had just dunked his head into a barrel of water to clear his hung over mind.
"You there! I'm looking for General Titus where is he?" Titus was busy wiping his face on a piece of cloth when the man shouted at him once more.
"I asked you a question soldier, now answer before I have you flogged." This caught Titus' attention.
"I suggest then that you get off that horse soldier and address me properly before, I. Have. You Flogged!" Titus shouted back, authority ringing clearly within the immediate area. The soldier slid of his horse and in an almost submissive manner kneeled by the General's leg before standing and handing the scroll to him.
"Apology's, sir." The General waved him away while reading the notice.
There were 50 men who were to march out in the early morning and they had to get to the fort in which the Governor had gone to nearly five weeks prior. They had prepared the previous evening and were now on the move.
Etain had sent word to her tribe that she and another female would be rejoining them soon. Ceana was to ride along side Etain and the two other scouts that were going to be riding with them.
They had been walking for a long time when Titus finally told the two scouts men to take Etain and Ceana with them to scout the area for any Picts. The two men nodded and rode off only stopping to nod to Etain and Ceana.
The four of them rode out into the fog and disappeared from view. Etain and Ceana nodded to each other and they each split up and circled the two men. When they came around in an arch they both killed them, Etain and her trusted spear killed the one man while Ceana and her special dagger killed the other. They rode up the side of the mountain to join the chief of the Brigantes tribe.
"Ah Etain I must congratulate you on your success in herding those fools. I see you brought your friend, Ceana I believe it is." Gorlacon said with a smile. Etain smiled slightly at the chief and Ceana looked at them in a confused manner.
"Forgive me please but, I don't understand, sir." Gorlacon smiled again and motioned for Ceana to sit down.
"I'm sorry my dear, I forgot that you are new. I am Gorlacon, chief of our tribe and I was simply congratulating Etain on her success in herding the Roman fools. I also see that she brought you, her friend, with her." Ceana smiled at him.
"What were you speaking? Can you teach me to speak it too, please?" Gorlacon nodded.
"It is Gaelic and yes, I will teach you our language young one." Etain smiled and pulled Ceana into her side. Together the three of them stood and watched the Pict army destroy the Roman's in one foul swoop.
"Etain, bring Ceana back with you. Aeron and Vortix will join you in searching for any Romans that are alive." Etain nodded and started to walk away but Ceana stayed.
"What do we do with the ones that are alive?" Gorlacon looked at her searchingly.
"Kill them. If you find one that looks ready to speak bring it back with you. I must warn you though; Etain is a fierce woman so do what she wants." He smiled when she nodded before running after Etain.
"Etain, wait!" Ceana shouted. Etain came to a stop and looked down at Ceana in a questioning gaze.
"Gorlacon said that we could bring some back if they look ready to speak." Etain nodded and then reached her hand out to Ceana. She took her hand and they quickly walked down the hill side to where the Romans lay. They searched and searched, but found none alive save for one, the General lay with a spear in his chest and glare in his eyes.
"You traitor, I trusted you. You, you were with her?" His glanced at Ceana and she sneered. Etain took one look at the Roman and left him to die, but Ceana could see that he was still going to live so she motioned to Vortix to take him to the Pict camp; he nodded and left with Aaron. Ceana and Etain were left alone amongst a few hundred dead men. Ceana watched how Etain stalked around, she was just like a wolf on its hunt, and Ceana felt her heart flutter when Etain looked at her and smiled. She felt her cheeks heat and she looked away. Unbeknownst to her, Etain's heart had also fluttered when she'd seen Ceana's flush. Not knowing what that had meant she shrugged it off and continued to search.
Ceana saw movement out the corner of her eye and she looked around for Etain, she could not see her so she did the only thing she could in order to attract Etain's attention. She let out a howl like that of a wolf, when Etain's body appeared she pointed to where the movement had come from. Etain nodded and the two of them slowly crept forward until they came to a stop near a long ditch where even more bodies were laid. They could not see anything.
"Perhaps it was an animal. Let us go, Gorlacon will want us back soon." Etain nodded and the two women ran off in search of their horses. Neither knew that there were in fact ten men hiding beneath the dead bodies of their fellow men.
