A/N: Here's my second story. I hope you like it.


It was half past three in the morning and Harry was sitting at a table in The Restricted Section, in the library. In front of him lay a large old book. For the last hour, Harry had been reading the same page over and over again. The page described a potion, that could be used to travel back in time.

'I could use this to save my parents.' Harry thought happily. He knew it was a very dangerous and stupid thing to do. If he would save his parents, Voldemort wouldn't be able to try to kill him and wouldn't be defeated. But Harry didn't care much. He was tired of his life as 'The Golden Boy Of Gryffindor'. Everyone expected him to do great things, defeat Voldemort and save the world. He was never allowed to do the things he wanted to do.

The last months had been awful for Harry. He had found out that he was gay and had told his friends. The next morning it was in all the magazines and papers. Apparently he wasn't allowed to like boys. The people wanted him to marry and have lots of kids, who would be just as 'golden' as him.

The other Hogwarts students had accepted it, but avoided the subject. Harry was very lonely. He couldn't talk to anyone about his feelings, not even with Hermoine. At times like this, Harry wished even more he had a mother. He knew his mother would've helped him and would have given him advice.

When Harry, like almost every night, couldn't sleep, he decided to go to the library. He had an idea...

Professor Binns, once told about someone who had made a potion to travel to the past. After he changed the past and came back, he found his wife married someone else. And his children weren't even born. No one ever dared to use the potion again.

Quickly Harry grabbed his invisibility cloak and made his way to the The Restricted Section.

Harry studied the list with ingredients. The potion wasn't a very difficult one, if he started tomorrow, next week it would be ready for use. Harry grinned at this. The sooner, the better.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------

It had been a week since he found the potion and Harry had just added the last ingredients to the potion. He'd been brewing the potion in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom and had been working on it almost every night. Finally the potion was finished.

For a moment Harry just stared at the potion. In a couple of minutes he would finally meet his parents and maybe even save them.

"I wouldn't do it, if you asked me." Moaning Myrtle said, who had been watching Harry all week.

Harry just ignored her. "It's very dangerous. You might never be able to come back." She continued.

"I don't care." Harry mumbled.

"Well you can't say, I never warned you." Myrtle said.

"Would you just go away?" Harry said angrily.

"You're sending me away? I guess you forgot that this is MY bathroom. But fine, if you just want to kill your self or bring the whole world into trouble, then go ahead!" Myrtle yelled and flew away.

Harry sighed. Maybe Myrtle was right. What if the whole world was destroyed when he came back? 'No, don't think about that. I knew about the consequences. Besides, the potion is already finished and it would be a waste to throw it away.'

Harry filled a glass with the potion. 'This is it.' He thought and quickly drank the potion.

"Take me to 1980. The resident of Lily and James Potter." He said loudly and vanished.

A pair of eyes looked sadly at the place where Harry just had been standing. "Please let him return safely." Moaning Myrtle said softly.
