Chapter one: Dudley's Mistake
Harry kicked off his shoes and sat down on the edge of his new bed. It was soft and actually quite comfortable. He made a mental note to thank Charlie for his help. "So what can I help you with Dudley?" Harry questioned as he stretched out on his bed, placing his hands behind his head.
"Well…I know that I haven't…well…been the nicest person to you growing up. I w-w-want to apologize for being such a…a…"
"Sure that will work. I realize now that I was being stupid and childish. I let my parent's views affect my own when I should have tried to get to know you better. I am ashamed for what I did."
He stared at his cousin trying to see if he was telling the truth. Dudley shifted under his gaze, making him nervous. "Who is she?"
"What?" Dudley gasped confusion clear on his face.
"Well who is she? I've known you for years Dudley and it would take a woman to change your mind, especially after…fifteen years."
Dudley remained silent studying his cousin as well. "Her name is Jamie. She is a cousin to your friend Seamus. When I told her she almost killed me. I had no idea you were so famous Harry."
"Of course you wouldn't. Petunia and Vernon don't care anything about the wizarding world. I never wanted the fame, it was pushed on me."
"So I've heard. She told me what really happened to your parents and why you have that scar. That shouldn't have happened to anyone."
"Well it did and there is no way I can change it. I would give anything to have them back but that is only a wish that will never come true."
"Sorry," Dudley said quietly and the two lapsed into a silence. It wasn't an awkward one but one that was of understanding.
Suddenly the door opened again, revealing the petite figure of Ginny. She was dressed in a pair of jean shorts and one of Harry's shirts she had stolen over the year. "So that's where my shirt got off to! I was going to wear that today." Harry said with a slight smile.
"Well, you should have checked my trunk then."
"I would like it back."
"No can do." Ginny said as she moved to sit beside him on the bed. She turned her brown eyes on his cousin. He was smaller than what Harry had described him as. He was taller than Harry, that was a given, and he wasn't as built as Harry now was. She didn't say anything as she moved to lay beside Harry, wrapping her arm around his waist.
"I doubt that we will be able to spend much time together, I think Vernon would be furious if he found you talking to me."
"He works extra hours these days and he is rarely home, thankfully. I don't think he would appreciate having Jamie over, he doesn't like her."
"Why is that?" Ginny asked suddenly. She had been following their conversation in the shower and she wasn't too sure if she was going to believe that he had truly changed.
"She's…well she's a witch."
"How in the world did you meet her then?"
"She doesn't actually go to normal wizarding schools. She is home schooled actually. I met her on a class trip to…somewhere I don't really remember where. We became fast friends and when dad found out he freaked. He wouldn't even look at her or even talk to her, mom was a bit more understanding though I am not sure if she approves or not."
"Well this is news to me. Congratulations though Dudley."
"I have a small favor to ask."
"Which would be?"
"Jamie was wanting to meet you and she is coming over for dinner today, if that's alright?"
Ginny snorted beside him and he turned to glare at his girlfriend. "That's fine," he said after a moment.
"Thanks," with that he left the two alone in their room.
Gin, you don't have to be rude you know.
I was not being rude! I just snorted there is nothing wrong with that!
I meant when you came in. You just looked at him, you didn't even bother to say hi.
Why should I? I don't trust him Harry, not yet anyway.
He apologized though.
So! He still hurt you Harry and sorry only works for so much.
Gin, he is trying, you have to give him credit for that.
I don't have to give him credit for anything. He was too stubborn to realize or even stop what his parents were doing.
We were kids!
That doesn't mean anything Harry! He could have told a teacher or something like that, but no he went along with them. You were abused Harry and that isn't taken lightly in either the wizarding world or muggle world!
You are starting to sound like Hermione.
She's right Harry. They would be in Azkaban for abuse and the police would have them in jail for what they did.
So I could end up in a foster home? So I could live there!
Harry, Dumbledore would not have left you in a foster home.
No he left me here! He left me like this! He didn't bother to come look after me. What am I supposed to do? Dudley is apologizing and that is better than it used to be.
Harry! It's only one person! He wasn't the one who caused you that much pain it was your Uncle. Forgive him if you want, forgive them all but I won't! I will never forgive them for what happened to you. Ginny sat up and moved off the bed. Her eyes were dark with pent up fury. She had seen what had happened to him while he was in this house and it made her physically sick.
She could never figure out what had possessed them to do those things to him. What had made Dumbledore leave him in a house like this! It was widely known that Petunia and Lily had never gotten along and just because of the blood protection he was stuck here!
Her power spiked and shattered one of the picture frames. "Damn it," she grumbled as she picked up the broken pieces of glass.
"Ginny…" Harry said cautiously.
"Don't talk to me Harry, just don't." With a wave of her hand the pieces fixed themselves and she slid it back into the frame.
Harry watched her sit against the wall and slide to the ground. Her head fell into her hands as she attempted to control the anger that welled up inside her. He could feel her power growing around her.
He knelt in front of her. "Ginny, everything will be fine," he whispered quietly.
"No it won't be!" Ginny snapped, her power spiking again, throwing Harry back a foot from her. "I've been getting them again Harry, nothing is going to go right!"
Suddenly things seemed to click in his mind. "Why didn't you tell me?" Harry asked as he moved back to her.
"Tell you what? I can't tell you anything! I don't know what is going to happen! I just know that something is going to happen but I don't know what it is."
"Ginny, calm down your power is spiking." He pulled her into his lap, holding her closer to him. She buried her face in his chest wrapping her arms around him. "If something happens, then it happens, we can only be on our guard and that's what those are meant for."
"I know but I can't stand having them so fuzzy. I can't stand it. Cedric almost died, Sirius, Dad, you." Her voice broke. She curled up into him more trying to control herself.
"Gin, no one is going anywhere, not yet any way. We have to enjoy the time we spend together and that's what matters. There isn't a point in second guessing the past or what could or could not happen in the future. We need to focus on now." She could only nod her head.
A loud knock on the door brought them out of their silence. They could hear Dudley head down the stairs and head to the door. "Your fan is here," she mumbled into his chest.
"You should be going down there."
"I'm not leaving you like this," he mumbled.
"I'll be fine, I promise."
"But you're not fine so I am not going anywhere."
Ginny groaned and got to her feet. She pulled Harry up and kissed him. "I love you but we have a guest to meet."
"I love you too," he said as he led her down the stairs. Dudley sat beside a small blonde. She was just about the same size and height of Ginny, her blue eyes were sparkling. "Hello," Harry said suddenly.
The two jumped and turned to look at him. A smile appeared on both of their faces as they got to their feet. "Jamie, this is my cousin Harry and his girlfriend Ginny."
"It's nice to meet you," Ginny said with a bright smile. The two girls shook the other's hand.
"Nice to meet you," Harry said as he shook her hand. He registered her power just like Ginny had done.
"You are pretty powerful, I am surprised you are not in a wizarding school," Ginny said thoughtfully.
"Well I was offered to go to Hogwarts but my mother wouldn't let me go. She spoke to the Ministry and got permission to teach me at home."
"Why didn't she want you to go to Hogwarts?" Harry asked after a moment's thought.
"She doesn't like Dumbledore. She won't tell me the particulars but she really dislikes the man."
"Do you live right here in England?"
"Yes about ten minutes from here."
"Is it just you and your mother?" Harry questioned.
What is it love?
I think something is off here.
What do you mean?
I am just wondering, she looks like someone I've seen before.
"Yes it's always been us. We used to live in France but we moved back here when I was ten."
"What is your last name?"
"Smithson, well it's my mum's last name that is."
"Do you know your fathers?" Ginny questioned. Jamie shifted slightly, catching the glint in Ginny's eyes. Ginny met her eyes and realized she wasn't going to be telling them.
"Harry, love, would you excuse me for a second." Before he could reply she was already upstairs and in their room. Harry frowned and shook his head.
"Sorry, Ginny is slightly spontaneous so I have no idea what she is going to do."
"It's alright," Jamie said after a moment.
She laughed. "I know his cousin but it really is my mother who has told me a lot."
Ginny appeared at the doorway again her eyes meeting Jamie's. Dudley and Harry looked at each other, slightly confused by all of this. The two girls nodded their heads in a silent understanding as Ginny took her seat again.
"Dinner is ready," Petunia said as she came into the room. "It's good to see you again Jamie."
"It's nice to see you again as well."
The five of them headed into the kitchen. Harry moved to start setting the food but Petunia flagged him off. With a shrug he sat down beside Ginny.
It was almost a two hours before Jamie left. Ginny and Jamie had become fast friends. They sat and talked for most of the time while Harry was teaching Dudley about Quidditch. Once she had left the three made their way back upstairs. Ginny crawled into the bed pulling the covers up around her shoulders.
"What was that about earlier?" Harry said as he pulled his shirt off.
"Nothing at all," Ginny said with a sly smile that he didn't like.
"I don't believe you."
"Then don't." She shrugged and he shook his head. He moved into the bed beside her, wrapping his arms around her waist.
"I'm home!" Jamie called as she walked into her house. She kicked off her shoes as she headed towards the living room.
"Hello sweetheart," her mother called from her seat on the couch.
"Hello girl," Sirius said from beside her.
Jamie smiled as she sat down between the two. "She knows," she said simply.
"I'm not surprised, she is smarter than that godson of mine." Sirius said with a shrug.
"Are you going to tell them the truth?" Anna asked from the other side of her daughter.
"I will, eventually of course. Right now, I just want to keep you two safe." He mumbled as he hugged Jamie to him.
"Ginny promised not to tell him. How did she figure it out so quickly?"
"I bet Harry was thinking something was off and Ginny just figured it out. They do that a lot but that's what makes them so perfect."
Jamie sighed and hugged both of her parents. "I am off to bed, see you in the morning."
The two watched her go. Sirius pulled Anna back to him and she snuggled closer to him. "We should tell them, they all think I am gone." Anna mumbled to herself.
"I know but we still have to get the last spell."
She nodded her head and tilted her head to look up at him. "Are you going to find him?"
"I will after what he did…"
"I know I want to get to him just as badly. Things will change, soon, very soon." Sirius smiled down at her and kissed her lightly.
"We should probably get to bed, we still have a lot of work to do." The moved and headed up the stairs.
"Well that wasn't expected," Ginny said to Harry. The two were looking down at the bowl in front of them. The two older versions were slightly confused.
"I had no idea he even had a kid!" James said from behind them. "That sly dog!"
"Well James you should have paid a bit more attention to the world." Lily said with a sigh.
"I was too busy paying attention to my beautiful wife and our son, can you blame me?"
"I should but I won't. Jamie has grown up quite a bit, she looks so much like Anna."
"What spell are they looking for?" Ginny questioned.
"I'm not sure but it must be something important. I don't blame Anna in the least for not letting Jamie go to Hogwarts. I would take Harry out in a heart beat after all of this!" Lily snapped to no one in particular.
James hugged his wife, kissing her cheek. "I know love but Sirius and Remus have been training him just like he should have been. We can only hope that things will improve."
"Sorry to bust your bubble but I think something is going wrong," Ginny pointed out.
"What do you mean?" Harry asked her.
"Well for one, Ginny is having her fuzzy visions again and it's not because of me. I really think something bad is about to happen and I think it has something to do with the Dursleys."
"What?" Lily and James said at once.
"I just have a bad feeling and it only increased when I got there. If there is one thing I know, I know when things are about to go from good to bad."
"What could possibly happen?"
"I don't know but someone is about to die…" Ginny said a little sad. The four of them remained silent, thinking of the possibilities of what would be happening soon.
