A/N: Sorry about the rant last chapter... :( Okay, this chapter took so long because I could not find out where or how to get James Black's newspaper article out... Lol. I hope this works!
Chapter 10: September 8th
The golden book was still there the next morning when James came down to start a large breakfast. James didn't pay it any mind as he walked into the kitchen. The pack would be there soon, and Orion had even suggested asking the Cullens over.
James sighed as he pulled out the eggs, bread, sausage, bacon, and other ingredients for pancakes. Making breakfast, James heard the door bell ring. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw John open the door.
"Hello," John greeted the pack. "Come on in. We'll sit in the formal dining room, as it's big enough for all of us." He stepped aside and let the shape shifters in. Then he shut the door and led them all to the formal dining, except for Jacob who stayed behind to talk to James.
"Hey," Jacob said.
James glanced over and smiled. "Hey," he replied. He continued to cook the large breakfast.
"There's a new wolf. His name's Quil. He's almost 17, just a few months shy. He was recovering when we had the meeting." Jacob sat at the island and watched James. "We've already told him what will happen when he looks you in the eye."
James nodded and finished up the Breakfast. "Would you help me carry this food?"
"Sure." Jacob jumped up to help carry the heavy trays and plates of food. He walked behind the cute brunet, and tried not to slow down to watch James' butt. The doorbell rang again as they made it into the room where the others were.
"Orion, could you please get that?" James asked.
"Yeah." Orion jogged to the front door, and opened it. "Hi. You must be the Cullens. Please come in. We're all in the formal dining room." He stepped aside, and let the Vampires in.
"Thank you," said Carlisle. He and his family followed Orion into the dining room. The Cullens looked warily at the Pack, but didn't say anything.
While James got to know Quil a bit, before their important talk, a newspaper article was making it's way to every Witch and Wizard in England, except for four specific people.

Many would say that the Headmaster is the Greatest wizard alive, and that he could do no wrong. Well, listen to this! I have it on good authority, with proof, that the esteemed Headmaster has stolen from and lied to the Potter Heir. We all know that Mr. Harry Potter left Hogwarts after he found out about the Potter Engagement ring being stolen from his vaults (you heard right, vaults). While we don't know where he is, I hope he is finally finding love out there somewhere.
You might be saying, "Well, James Black, the stolen ring doesn't mean that the good Headmaster stole anything." Well, here's where I prove you wrong. My source, let's call them Mr. X, gave me a piece of parchment verified by Gringotts Bank that listed all the withdrawals that Headmaster Dumbledore made from Heir Potter's vaults. Here's the information I found. I won't even sugar-coat it.
§ Money transfer – Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – 200,000 galleons (from the Potter Vault) – Ginevra Molly Weasley
§ Item withdrawal – Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – Potter Engagement ring – Ginevra Molly Weasley
§ Item withdrawal - Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – Potions Notebooks (from the Evans Trust Vault) – Hermione Jean Granger
§ Money transfer - Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – 5,000 galleons/year (from the Potter Vault) – Hermione Jean Granger; to be Harry James Potter's friend
§ Money transfer - Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – 5,000 galleons/year (from the Gryffindor Vault) – Ronald Bilius Weasley; to be Harry James Potter's friend
§ Money transfer - Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – 5,000 galleons/year (from the Gryffindor Vault) – Ginevra Molly Weasley; to get close to Harry James Potter
§ Money transfer - Albus Percifal Wulfric Brian Dumbledore – 300,000 galleons (from the Potter Vault) – Ginevra Molly Weasley; bridal price
I ask you this: Why would the good Headmaster, Light Lord, steal from one of the most prominent family names? Why would he basically 'hire' friends for the young orphan boy? After paying Ginny a bridal price so high, why did he pay her 200,000 galleons more? Why did Albus "too many middle names" Dumbledore think he had the right to take items from someone else's vaults? He has been stealing from Mr. Potter almost since the boy's parents died, and no one wondered why Mr. Potter wore hand-me-downs?
I have to leave this here before I give my own opinions... I hope you all wake up and think for yourselves. Get the facts, and do the right thing!

"Here's the story," Orion started. They were all sitting around the formal dining table, and Orion was a little nervous. "My name is Sirius Orion Black. I lived in London all my life. When I turned eleven, I was accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There I met James Potter, Remus Lupin, and the traitor Peter Pettigrew. Of course, we didn't know then that Peter would betray Lily and James Potter after we all graduated."
The man they called John spoke up. "My name is Remus John Lupin. When I was a kid, before Hogwarts, I was bitten by a werewolf that my dad had angered too many times before. Growing up, I always thought I was a monster but having friends that later became Animagi helped a lot. I was away on a mission when Harry's parents were murdered.
James cleared his throat. "My name is Harry James Potter. I was raised by my muggle Aunt and Uncle. Muggle means non-magic. My bedroom- Well, let's just say it was small." He looked down for a moment, before looking back up. "I wasn't treated well, and when my Hogwarts letters started showing up, my aunt and uncle went a little crazy. They hated magic, and seeing hundreds of letters and about thirty owls, they packed us up and tried to outrun the letters. We ended up in a shack on a rock way out at sea. This giant man knocked down the door and gave me the shock of my life! I was a wizard! I was always told that magic didn't exist, and I was punished if anything freakish happened. However, there was this man telling me that my mum and dad were magical, and I was too. He handed me my Hogwarts letter, and the next morning, we left to go shopping for my school supplies. Imagine my surprise when I saw my Trust Vault... A huge pile of Gold, Silver, and Bronze coins!" Harry took a sip of his drink. "Being raised the way I was, I didn't want to spend all the money I had on clothes that would fit. I got the basic clothes and items for school, and Hagrid (the man who took me shopping) bought me an owl. I won't talk much about my time at Hogwarts, except that I had one adventure after another. Seven days ago, on the first, I found out that my Headmaster had been stealing from me for years and that he had set me up to marry the younger sister of who I thought was my best friend. So, the three of us decided to leave England for a while, and hide. Here we are."
