Authors Note: Here's chapter 28. Hope you like it and please review.
EXTRA: This chapter is dedicated to insane and crazy duoe for the longest
review I've ever seen or received.
"Harry, are you alright?"
Harry snapped out of his thoughts and looked at Ron and Hermione.
"Yes, I'm fine. Just a bit sad." He replied.
"It's alright mate," Ron said. "Everyone's a bit sad today. After all, it
is the last day, and we're leaving tomorrow. Well, I guess that the
teachers aren't exactly sad. They won't have to care about buggering
students for three whole months."
"And don't forget that Fred and George are leaving for good this time."
"I bet those two are going to do something major tomorrow. Who do you
think is going to take over after them?"
"I don't know Ron," Harry said. "I heard Dean and Seamus discussing it
last night, but neither of them are sure yet." He added trying to actively
be a part of the conversation.
'Cheer up Harry,' the voice said. 'You aren't leaving for good, just three
months. And remember, since you are a Pretender, you can scare the hell out
of the Dursley's.'
'The note that followed with the book said not to get too dependant on the
powers if you had them.' Harry replied. 'I'm worried that I'm using the
powers far too much.'
'Don't worry about that. Now, let me cheer you up. When you get home you
have the Animagi training, you have to watch Fudge, take care of Voldemort,
make Rex Chase escape the Order of the Phoenix, and scare the hell out of
the Dursley's. You know, that could be your new hobby. Oh, and lets not
forget planning the revenge on Malfoy.'
'You do know that you're crazy, right?'
'Why thank you, I try my best.'
'Yep, stupid and crazy.'
Harry chuckled and received concerned looks from Ron and Hermione. He just
smiled even more to them.
"I was just thinking about the revenge on Malfoy I'm planning for next
"You are evil Harry," Ron concluded. "Down right evil."
"Yet another year has come and gone," Dumbledore began his speech in the
same manner that year as all the others. "Hopefully you learned something
new this year, and now you have the whole summer to forget what you learnt.
Some of you won't be coming back next year," he looked at the Weasley twin
who both wore an innocent face, "and all I can say to those who it concerns
is: Good luck in the real world." Everyone clapped for the seventh years.
"Now, all that is left to say it tuck in!"
Harry was about to take a bite of a chicken leg when someone pushed him and
he lost it on the floor. Harry turned and glared at the person who turned
out to be Fred. He gave the Weasley a glare that could've batched
Voldemort's best glare, and turned back to his food. He was about to take a
bite but once again someone 'accidentally' pushed, this time from the other
side, and he lost his food. Harry turned and glared at the second Weasley
'I'm surprised that you didn't figure out what they were doing from the
first time they stepped into the Great Hall, Harry.' The voice said.
Harry looked around and then it hit him. Fred and George had strategically
placed themselves on each side of him, neither one of them were eating, and
the innocent faces they had been wearing under Dumbledore's speech
should've warned him not to touch anything on the tables. But why didn't
they want to play the prank on him?
As if they had read his thoughts, the twins turned him.
"We didn't want the main investor and co-owner of our shop to back out."
"And besides, if we play a prank on you you'd just return the favour ten
times worse." George continued before Harry could say anything.
"Hold it guys," Harry said. "Co-owner?"
"Yeah, that's the least we can do." Fred replied. "You get every new
product for free, and 10% of the money we make. An alright deal, don't you
"And we won't take 'no' for an answer," George added quickly. "Listen, you
can give us your reply on the train back tomorrow. Now lets just sit back
and enjoy the show."
Harry shook his head smiling. He leaned back against the wall and watched
the rest of the students and teachers in the Great Hall. Suddenly there was
a commotion from the Slytherin table and everyone turned that way. The
Slytherins turned with a 'pop' into frogs and started to jump about the
Great Hall. Girls screamed as the amphibians jumped on them and the Muggle
born students began laughing so hard that they nearly fell off their seats.
Snape was looking murderous while Dumbledore and McGonagall were
desperately trying not to burst out laughing. The rest of the teacher just
"It isn't over yet mate," Fred said. "Check out the Hufflepuffs."
Harry turned to the Hufflepuff table along with everyone else when a loud
'pop' came from that direction. Instead of the Hufflepuff students sitting
there, they were faced with small, cute, bear-like creatures.
"Wombats!" Hermione exclaimed and sent the Great Hall into another fit of
"Neat, ne?" George asked.
Harry could only nod. He kinda felt sorry for the Ravenclaws. God knew what
the Weasley twins had planned for them. He laughed when an albino frog
jumped in front of him and glared as best as it could before jumping off
towards the Slytherin table. Yet again there was a loud 'pop' and at the
Ravenclaw table sat dozens upon dozens of turtles. In every imaginable size
or form; small, big, thin, fat, you name it the Ravenclaw table had it.
Suddenly a thought occurred to him, and he turned to Fred.
"Fred, you didn't do anything to the Gryffindor table, did you?" Harry
"Harry! How could you think such a thing?" Fred exclaimed.
"We didn't do anything to the Gryffindor table," George continued.
"Good," Harry said. "I was beginning to get worried."
"We didn't only do the Gryffindor table," Fred said after a while.
"We did something to the teachers table too." The twins said at the same
"WHA-" Harry didn't get further as all the Gryffindors around them turned
into lions. Real life lions with manes and tails the waived about. The
lions looked at themselves, but didn't seem to get panic. Instead they
looked over to the Slytherin table, and every single one got an evil glint
in their eyes. The frogs at the aforementioned table looked worriedly at
each other and started to jump towards the doors; the lions attacked as if
they were one mind and one body. "You two are crazy and in sooooo much
trouble." Harry said as he watched the wombats and turtles hurrying over to
see what was going to happen next.
"Correction, you're in trouble too." Fred said. "You were the only one,
along with us, who didn't turn into a lion."
"Now, the crown of our career as troublemakers." George said and snapped
A second later instead of teachers, the Head table was occupied by
different kinds of animals. Sprout had turned into a kangaroo with an
apron, Flitwick into a canary with a tie, Trelawney into a royal penguin
with an extremely big, pink hat. Snape had turned into a black raven and
was holding a scythe and a sign over him said 'The Grim Reaper', McGonagall
into her Animagus form with a hat and boots, and Dumbledore had turned into
a cheetah with long silver beard. Cassar had turned into a wolf with a
huge, pink, purple and light-blue bow around his neck, Imir turned into a
bear in a yellow skirt and rings in the ears, and Madisa turned into a pink
flamingo with a red cape where a big, golden 'S' was placed in the middle.
All Harry could do was stare with open mouth on the whole scene. This was
the proof he needed. The Weasley twins were now officially stamped as Crazy
as Hell, and should be sent to St. Mungo's as fast as humanly, and
inhumanly, possible. He didn't doubt that even Voldemort would be afraid of
'I'm beginning to wonder if giving them that TriWizard money was a good
idea after all.' Harry thought as he watched the animals turn back into
humans. Every student and/or teacher that had been walking about were now
sitting back in their respective seats as though nothing had happened.
Everyone pinned the Weasley twins and him with death glares and Harry
wished that the ground could open and swallow him whole.
"Well, that, was a new way to end the year." Dumbledore said after a
while. "And since it is the end of the year, Misters Weasley and Mr Potter
will not get punished, nor will they loose any points." Snape glared evilly
at Dumbledore while McGonagall blinked a couple of times, then smiled
sweetly to the Potion Master. "In fact, for that brilliant plan to work
they must've used almost all their free time to study. I award 30 points to
Snape's mouth dropped open and over at the Slytherin table Malfoy banged
his head repeatedly on the table. McGonagall seemed to be keeping herself
from jumping up and down like a maniac, while the rest of the Gryffindor
table cheered like crazy. They had been tied with Slytherin this year in
the house points and now they were the winners! Hermione hugged everyone in
sight, Neville and Sakura did a high-five then decided to help Hermione and
started hugging everyone in sight too. Ron and Ginny congratulated their
brothers, and generally everyone were happy except the Slytherins.
"What a way to end the year!" Lee Jordan exclaimed. "Wohooo!"
Nothing happened on the train back to King Cross the next day. Hermione
read, Ron was telling Harry about Quidditch, and Harry was trying not to
fall asleep. A perfectly normal ride. On the station Hermione, Ron, Harry
and the rest of the Weasley children were almost chocked to death by Mrs
Weasley when she gave them the yearly Welcome-Back Hugs.
Harry quickly excused himself and left the station, but not after promising
to write regularly. He hurried out of the station and hid in a deserted
alley. There his appearance changed. It was time to begin the last part of
Blaise gladly stepped off the train. She had had to listen to Pansy
Parkingson jabbering about her newest dress, and who she wanted to snag
next year. God, that girl could bore the hell out of everyone and
everything. Blaise looked around. She was looking for the person who was
going to take her to her parents. The only problem was that she had no idea
how the person looked like. A tiny detail Potter had forgotten to mention.
"Blaise! Blaise dear! Over here!" she looked in the direction of the
voice. A woman was almost jumping up and down, waiving her hands about. She
had long, black hair and kind, brown eyes. Her robe was deep-forest green
with golden leaf patterns. "Blaise, over here honey!" Blasie headed that
way. "I'm sorry about your parents," was the first thing the woman said.
She picket up the teens trunk. "Come along then, you're going to stay with
me this summer."
Blaise blinked and quickly followed the woman into the Muggle part of the
"What do you mean by that?" she demanded. "I thought tha-"
"That your aunt was coming?" the woman cut her off. The brown eyes held a
warning. "Sorry dear, but we couldn't find her, she must be out of the
country. Now, come along."
The Slytherin girl decided to keep quiet and followed the woman out of the
station and into a back alley. There the woman began to search for
something through all the seemingly endless pockets in her robe.
"Aha!" the woman held up a crystal statue of a lily. "Now, hold on."
Blaise touched the flower and felt the tell tale sign of a portkey. "Wow,
easy there!" the woman said and helped Blaise get her balance back when
Blaise looked around. They were in an old forest, high trees surrounded
them and very little light managed to reach the forest floor. It all looked
magical and unnatural. The black-haired woman had set off in a direction,
Blasie's trunk floating after her.
"Wait!" she called and the woman turned, patiently waiting for Blaise to
catch up. "I don't even know your name."
"Oh, how could I forget my manners!" the woman looked shocked. "I'm Lily
Joyleaf. And if you call me 'Ms' or 'Mrs' I'm going to hex you into
"Where are we going?"
"To your parents."
"But I thought you said-"
"We were in the middle of a crowded station with dozens of witches and
wizards around. You do the math." Lily replied kindly, her brown eyes
twinkling in a Dumbledore-like way. "Now, I think that you want to meet
your parents." And suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, a little cottage
appeared in the clearing in front of them. "Go on, they're waiting. Just
remember that Rex will drop by later tonight."
Blaise had been looking in wonder at the little house, and then remembered
her own manners. She turned to thank Lily, but the woman was nowhere in
sight, only Blaise's trunk on the ground. The Slytherin girl slowly started
walking up to the cottage, but before she could take more than a few steps
the door opened and out came her mother and father. Blaise ran right into
their waiting arms, laughing and crying at the same time. Somebody had to
remind her to thank Potter next time she saw him.
'Thanks for the help voice,' Harry said as he packed away his things. He
was back at Privet Drive, and the Dursley's hadn't changed one bit.
'Just don't expect me to make an illusion of you every time you snap your
fingers.' The voice replied. 'How can you stand these Dursley's? Why don't
you just turn into Rex Chase and blow them up?'
'That would attract unwanted attention. And it isn't as bad as it was the
past four years. At least this time I'm allowed to keep my things in my
room and do homework in the day-time.'
'You've a bit too much patience for my taste.' The voice complained.
'A few days ago you said that that was a good thing.' Harry reminded it in
amusement. The voice began mumbling something about a plot against it.
Harry just chuckled.
Harry looked at the clock in his room and sighed. It was time to play Rex
Chase again and get the Zabini's to their new house. He stood up and felt
the change take over him. A second later instead of a fifteen year old boy
standing in the room, a grown man had taken his place.
Harry apparated with a pop, and appeared again on the doorstep of the
cottage. He knocked on the door three times and waited patiently until Mrs
Zabini opened it. Before he even had time to open his mouth, he was
engulfed into a vicious hug by the woman.
"Thank you so much for everything you've done for us." She whispered.
"Don't thank me yet," he replied. "There's still a few more steps to
complete before you're safe." The woman released him and stepped back.
Harry entered, nodding quickly to Mr Zabini and Blaise. He went over to the
fireplace and sat down into midair. "Now, lets get down to business." He
began. "Have a seat." He mentioned to the couch. "As I said last time I was
here, there still are small, but significant things to take care of. First
of all your new names. I hope you don't mind that I've picket them out,"
the three Zabini's shook their heads, "good. Now, you Ms Blaise will be
Cynthia Thatcher. Mrs Zabini will be Cornelia Thatcher and you will be Dave
Thatcher." Harry looked at them. "Now, the rest of the information you'll
need to start a new life is in this folder here." He produced a yellow
folder out of thin air and gave it to a surprised Blaise. Then he took out
an old teacup and stood up. "Just touch this and we'll be on our way."
The three Zabini's did as he told them to and they disappeared in a bright
flash of light. Not much later they were standing in the middle of a flat.
The streetlight from outside gave them enough light to see around the room.
There was a couch against the wall beside them, opposite the couch there
was a TV, a shelf and a palm-plant in the corner. There was also a coffee-
table in the middle of the room. Everything was covered by white sheets.
"Where are we?" Mrs Zabini asked. "I mean what country and town?"
"New Orleans, America." Came the reply. "Now, in the folder you'll find a
couple of Visa cards and their like, and a bank account has been set up;
school and jobs are taken care of." Harry turned to Blaise. "Ms Blaise, I'm
afraid I must perform an Elf-spell on you. That time you listened in on a
private conversation between Mr Potter and the Elf, Minour D'xin, the Elf
didn't know it and didn't perform the spell on you. It's just in case,
nothing else. I suggest that you sit down when I perform the spell." Blaise
looked surprised that Harry knew about that, but did as she was told. Now
came the hard part. Harry had to think like an Elf to manage this spell,
and that meant that he had to forget everything he had learned at Hogwarts.
Mr and Mrs Zabini watched in fascination as the young man preformed the
spell. Almost no one, not even Dumbledore, could manage to think like
another species. Their daughter swayed a bit, but then she opened her eyes.
Chase seemed to be a bit dizzy himself, but he didn't sit down. Instead he
began to roam through the pockets of his coat after something or other, and
in the end he took out a glass vial with a pure golden potion in it.
"Is that what I think it is?" Mr Zabini asked, watching the thick,
sparkly, golden liquid in the vial.
"If you think that this is the potion for the Fidelius Charm, then you're
right." Harry replied. "Now, I need something from each of you, it doesn't
matter what it is, and I want you to put it in here," he mentioned to the
vial. The two grown ups put their wedding rings into the potion and Blaise
put a couple of hairs into it. Harry put some of his magic energy into it,
then he conjured four glasses and poured a bit of the potion into them; he
then handed each of the Zabini's their glass. "I must warn you that this
will hurt a bit, and you'll feel as though you're floating. Just try to
ignore that feeling. Ready? Here we go." All of them drank the potion at
the same time. That it would hurt a bit was an understatement. To Harry it
felt like he was under the Cruciatus curse again, then suddenly he felt
like he was flying. It reminded him of the effects of the Imperius curse.
He managed to drag himself back to reality, and discovered that the three
others were doing the same. It took them some time to look around and
realise where they were. "That was a new experience." Harry commented.
"Well, now that that's taken care of, I'll be on my way. No wait! There's
one more thing." He took out a letter from a pocket and handed it to
Blaise. Then he was gone.
Blaise looked at the letter. She didn't recognise the crest, but it was
addressed to her so she opened it and nearly lost it when she had read
through the letter.
"Mum! Dad! I've been accepted to the Slayer Organisation!"
"Really?" her mother asked, took the letter from her daughter and read
through it. "Oh God! You are!"
"It is an honour to have a daughter that's accepted in the Slayer
Organisation." Her father said. "But why do I have a feeling that either
Rex Chase or Harry Potter had something to do with that?"
"They probably did." Blaise said. "But I'm not complaining."
Her parents laughed and they set off to explore their new house.
When he came home Harry collapsed at once into his bed, not even bothering
to take off his shoes. God, how he hated to take portkeys, no matter the
Harry looked around. He was standing somewhere, but there was nothing that
could tell him where. The whole place was made out of pure, white light. As
far as he could see there was light. He might be in a thick fog, but he
didn't think that was the situation. The light was endless. This was one of
the weirdest things that had happened to him.
Suddenly he heard footsteps coming towards him, and out of the fog, or
whatever it was, a figure took shape. It was a tall man. He was wearing a
white robe that seemed to be made out of the same light as the rest of this
place. His hair was white, but the man wasn't old. On the contrary he
seemed to be somewhere around Sirius' age. The ocean-blue eyes twinkled
with wisdom and amusement.
Harry did the first thing that popped into his head. He bowed. When he
looked back up the man was standing right in front of him. The man was
smiling. He put his hands on Harry's shoulders.
"You did well Harry." The voice was soft, powerful and patient.
Harry smiled in his sleep.
Well, what do you think? This is the last chapter. ::sniff:: I hope you
enjoyed the story as much as I did writing it. Look out for Harry's 6th
year. It'll be out soon.
