What They Won't Tell You

Harry Potter isn't what you'd call an ordinary man. In fact most people that know him would tell you that he is an extraordinary man. His friends would tell you that he is the most kind, loving and giving person they know. His in-laws would tell you that her is the most perfect person for their girl, their sister, that they thank God everyday that Ron sat in his compartment on the Hogwarts Express on that fateful day. His colleagues would tell you that he is a firm but fair boss. His children would tell you that he is the best dad in the world and if you ever saw them with him you'd understand why they say that. His wife would tell you that he is the greatest man in the world, her hero, her man, her world and her life.

He on the other hand would quite happily tell you that he was an ordinary person that was dealt a really bad hand that suddenly turned good. What he wouldn't tell you is that he has nightmares on an almost nightly basis. That the woman who calls him her hero holds him as he weeps and if she ever even thought about leaving him he would die. He cant be the best dad in the world because he has to leave his children almost weekly so he can keep the world just that little bit safer. That he wants to give his family everything because he can't bear the thought of losing any of them. He doesn't know what he's doing at work, so lets his colleagues tell him what they'd do and most of the time goes with what they say. He'll give his friends anything they need because he's Terrified that if he doesn't, they'll disappear. He doesn't see what they see.

She would tell you that she got lucky when her brother decided to sit next to a certain green eyed boy on the Hogwarts Express. What she wouldn't tell you is that she can't write in a diary, that she hates them so much she wont let one in her house. That she is terrified the man that thinks she's his rock, will one day open his eyes and notice that she is just a skinny ginger girl and leave her. She can't be the best mum in the world because she can't live up to her own mother, she can't even boil an egg. That she learnt how to use her wand so well because she never wants to feel as helpless as she did her first year ever again. That she will never be what her parents want her to be, because she is simply just a woman and in no way, shape or form special. She always jokes and laughs the loudest because she's a Weasley and it's what's expected of them. That she was an adequate chaser and worked so hard to be better because no matter how good she was, she was still plagued with stories about the fact that she only got her place on the team because of who her family and husband are. She doesn't see what they see.

He would tell you that he somehow managed to get great friends and live of their shirt strings.
