She could not believe that it had been 10 years since she had been
a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was now working as a teacher there.
When she got the job, she had been living with Harry, Ron and Ginny. She, Hermione Granger, was going to be a teacher at Hogwarts! They were all so happy for her, but they knew that her happiness would come at a price. She would have to live at the school. Meaning no more late night talks, or no one to make breakfast in the morning.
She moved out and started her new job, but she always kept in touch with her friends. She loved them dearly and missed them all the time.
She read that Ron had tried out for the Chudley Cannons and had made it. She was so happy that he was finally able to live his dream.
She was heartbroken for Ginny as well as herself when she learned that Harry, who was an Auror, was sent off on a dangerous mission to capture some death eaters trying to reincarnate He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
Ginny had little time to be sad though. She worked in the emergency room of St. Mungo's hospital. Her life was always stressful and hectic. Their lonely flat, that was normally filled with love and laughter, was now empty. Ginny was the one that visited it occasionally, but only to get a couple of hours of sleep and a quick bite to eat only to return to work.
Lavender sat at her desk chewing on the end of her pen. She was still thinking about that piece of mail that was in her mailbox last night. An invitation to her Hogwarts 10 year class reunion. Should she go? She didn't know.
She knew that she had a deadline coming up and her boss at the Daily Profit would want her article on this years cloaks to be on her desk in about an hour. She hadn't even started it yet. But that's not the idea that scared her…
Seamus sat staring at the invitation. He wasn't going. No way. No how. He couldn't face them. Not after that fight. He slowly let his eyes close and he remember that fateful day…
"SHE'S DEAD BECAUSE OF YOU!" Seamus screamed at Dean. It was hours after the funeral. Both boys were red-faced and screaming in the middle of the common room.
"YOU DON'T THINK THAT I KNOW THAT?" Dean screamed back. "I LOVED PARVATI WITH EVERYTHING IN ME, AND IT KILLS ME TO KNOW THAT SHE DIED FOR ME!"
"Hey, guys, lets just" Harry said, trying to break it up. This wasn't something that the whole common room needed to know.
"SHUT UP HARRY! IT'S HIS FAULT!" Seamus yelled.
"DON'T YELL AT HARRY!" Ron screamed. Hermione came up and grabbed Ron's hand, tugging him away.
"YOUR BOTH TAKING HIS SIDE? I CANT BELIEVE IT! SHE'S DEAD BECAUSE OF HIM AND YOU'RE TAKING HIS SIDE! WELL THAT'S FINE! I NEVER WANT TO SEE ANY OF YOU AGAIN!" With those words, he stomped out of the room, never to be seen again.
END OF FLASHBACK
He couldn't go, and yet there was something in him, telling him, pleading with him to go.
It was two in the morning before he returned home. He could barley see straight. Good thing that the officer didn't stop him. He was so drunk that he couldn't walk a straight line if his life depended on it. He had no idea how he was going to be at the office in five hours.
He stepped on the mail as he walked in the house. Walking to the kitchen he looked through it. Junk. Junk. Bill. Junk. Bill. Bill. Hogwarts crest. Bill. Ju- wait. Hogwarts crest? He mind reeled. He went back to the letter and opened it quickly, and read:
You are cordially invited to
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's
10 year reunion!
Please RSVP to Padma Patil by January 20th.
Patil. With that one name he felt like he was falling. The room was spinning. Parvati's face was the last thing that he saw before he fell to the kitchen ground, sound asleep.
