Hey Guys! Here's the third part of A Time of Change. I'm sorry that I couldn't make this story longer, I know that a lot of you wanted me to. I just didn't have enough material. I might re-write it later and make it a lot longer, 10 chapters or so. Well, I hope you like the ending anyway, Enjoy! Btw, I fixed the error everyone was talking about. I actually knew I made it about an hour after I posted, I just couldn't fix it 'cause it was so late at night. Believe me, I do know that James is Prongs and Sirius is Padfoot.
"What!" Lily squealed, then felt herself roll off the bed and onto the floor. "That's impossible!" She said, snatching the picture out of Sirius's hands.
The picture was of a woman and a man holding their new baby boy, while smiling and waving towards Lily. The woman had long, fiery red hair, and emerald green eyes. And the man had jet-black hair, and blue eyes, hidden behind his glasses. The baby looked much like his father, except for his eyes. He had emerald green eyes, just like his mother.
"Well, believe it" Sirius said, pointing to the photo. "Aww, look, you have a baby!"
Lily glared at Sirius, as her face turned scarlet. Lily did have to admit, the woman in the picture did kind of resemble her. But she didn't want them to know that.
"This could easily be mistaken for somebody else" Lily said.
"Lily, it's you two!"
"What do you think, Remus?" Lily asked, ignoring Sirius.
Remus looked over Lily's shoulder and studied the photo. "There is quite a resemblence"
James appeared above Lily's shoulder, peaking at the photo in her hands. She looked up at him, but as soon as she caught sight of his eyes she looked away, blushing, as did he.
"Where did you find it, Sirius?" Remus asked.
"In this trunk" Sirius said, gesturing towards an open trunk behind him.
"Look" James said, closing the trunk and pointing to the name on it.
"Harry Potter" Lily read.
"That's him!" Sirius said, pointing to the baby in the picture.
"How do you know?" Lily asked.
"Who else could it be?" Sirius said. "I mean, why would he have a picture of somebody else's parents in his trunk"
"He's got a point" Remus agreed.
"But...it can't...that's just ridiculous!" Lily argued.
There was a short silence in the room as Lily and James stared deeply at the photo, before they heard noises down in the common room.
"Class is over! We've got to get out of here!" Sirius said, in a loud whisper.
James glanced at Lily one last time before heading down into the common room. The four steered clear until the common room was empty, then headed out of Gryffindor tower.
"Why don't we go and hang out by the lake?" Sirius said, winking at James.
"Sounds good to me" James agreed.
Remus and Lily followed Sirius and James out to the lake, then sat against the large oak tree to try and enjoy the nice, cool, afternoon breeze.
"This is so weird" Lily whispered to Remus.
Remus nodded. "I know"
"How are we going to get back?"
"Haven't got a clue" Remus said.
"Hey, whose that coming down here?" James said, pointing to three students heading their way.
"James! Get over here, we can't be seen!" Lily shouted in a loud whisper.
James, Sirius, Remus, and Lily hid behind the big oak tree as they watched the three students take a spot oposite of the four behind the tree. There were two boys and a girl. One boy had jet-black hair, the other had fiery, red hair, and the girl had bushy, brown hair.
"Come on, let's go" Lily said, as she began to inch around the tree.
"Wait!" James said, grabbing a hold of her hand. "What's that they've got there?"
The boy with jet-black hair had just brought a bare piece of parchment from his pocket, and began waving his wand in front of it.
"That's our map!" Sirius whispered, as ink suddenly appeared on the piece of parchment. "How did they get our map?"
"Are you sure it's our map?" Remus asked.
"I'm positive! Look at the writing on it!"
And the writing on the map was, indeed, very similar to the marauders map.
"We have to get it back!" Sirius whispered to James and the others.
"Sirius, no!" Lily said, grabbing Sirius by the arm and pulling him backwards, as Sirius tried to get the map back from the students.
"Harry, did you hear something" The bushy-haired girl said to the jet-black haired boy.
The boy turned and looked behind him, and in the direction of the four. James, Sirius, Remus, and Lily hid behind the tree, and out of site of the three students.
"Must have been your imagination" said 'Harry'. Then the three students turned back around and continued to fool with the map.
"James, did you hear what they called him?" Lily asked.
"And did you see his face?"
There was a short silence between the two before Lily spoke.
"He looks just like you" She finally said.
James looked to Lily and smiled. "Except for his eyes"
Lily blushed and looked to her feet. James then lifted her chin and kissed her gently on the lips.
"You know, we're still standing right here" Sirius said, gesturing towards himself and Remus.
James and Lily both laughed softly.
"So, is there anywhere else you want to see?" James asked Lily.
"Nah, I think I'll wait for the surprise" Lily smiled, then pulled the timeturner from underneath her shirt.
"Me, too" James said.
Sirius high-fived Remus, then the four of them took hold of the timeturner and traveled back to the past.
"Now I know you heard that" Hermione said, quickly turning towards the spot where the four just dissapeared from.
"Hermione, your probably just hearing..." Harry started, as he rose from the ground and walked towards the spot from where they heard the noise.
There was a piece of parchment on the ground, from where they heard the noise. Harry bent down and picked the paper off the ground:
Messrs. Padfoot, Prongs, and Moony would like to congratulate you on finding our wonderful treasure. Use it well. And Prongs and Lilyflower would like to say to make wise decisions and always believe in yourself. We'll see each other soon.
"What?" Ron asked, leaning in to see what Harry had found.
"Nothing" Harry said, shoving the letter into his pocket.
Some things are just too sacred to even show Ron and Hermione.
I hope you liked this story. I'm so so so sorry that it was so short. If I ever come up with more material then I will re-write it, I promise. PLEASE R/R!
