A/N I salute you, JK Rowling!

Chapter five

A week later, Sept was introduced to the Order. Every pair of eyes widened on seeing his forehead, and Professor McGonagall went pale at the waves of power his natural form emanated.

His dark eyes traveled the room, pretending awe.

Suddenly Remus Lupin flicked another glance at him, then, quite openly stared. Mad Eye too was looking at Sept with a strange look on his face. It was a cross between grudging respect and downright disbelief.

Sirius was the first to break the silence. "So, you're Sept Weasley, are you?"

Sept looked at him for a long moment. During this time Sirius had a very disturbing thought.

"You went back in time…" he mused.

"Yes I did, it was the only way to save my family."

Sirius froze, his eyes shocked and looked at Sept sharply. Did you just say what I think you said?"

"What?"

"Family… The way you said it, you sort of, choked it out, like you couldn't say the word."

"It's difficult, I'm fighting a curse. A certain idiot decided it'd be funny."

"I've done that before."

Sept rolled his eyes, "Yeah," he said sarcastically, "to me!"
