Chapter 21: Welcome Home Harry!

((They were on the platform and Harry was glaring at the gateway with unease. Anne walked up next to him.

" Ready for this, Harry?" Anne asked, grabbing his hand.

" As ready as I will ever be." He responded.

Anne turned and nodded to Jason, who at once disappeared.

" Then lets go and face the bull in the face." Anne said, pulling him forward.

" Keep your trunks shrunk. You wont be long enough to unpack." Anne whispered as they walked through the gateway.))


Anne saw him before he saw them, that beefy son of bitch. She longed to hurt the man that hurt Harry, but she wouldn't draw attention to herself right now. Maybe later, when they went to pick up Harry, maybe then she could hex him just once.

" Anne, I gotta go." Harry said, but made no inclination to move.

" I know. The fat manspotted us." Anne said, watching as Vernon approached them.

" Come on, boy. You have kept me long enough." Vernon said, stopping five feet from him.

" Yes, Uncle." Harry said, turning to Anne.

He pulled her into a fierce hug and after a minute, he slowly let go, only to be pulled off by Vernon.

" I said, lets go!" He said, gritting his teeth.

" Ok, I'm coming." Harry said, being pulled.

" Dammit, Harry!" Anne whispered.

"Memories consume
like opening the wound
I'm picking me apart again
you all assume
I'm safe here in my room
unless i try to start again
i don't want to be the one
the battles always choose
cause inside i realize
that I'm the one confused

i don't know what's worth fighting for
or why i have to scream
i don't know why i instigate
and say what i don't mean
i don't know how i got this way
i know it's not alright
so I'm
breaking the habit
tonight

clutching my cure
i tightly lock the door
i try to catch my breath again
i hurt much more
than anytime before
i had no options left again"

' HARRY! Remember; don't break down when you get home. I will be there not five minutes later to sweep you away. Stand up to the bastard once and for all!' Anne screamed at him through the mind link they had. ((A/N: Yes, just like her and Severus!))

' I know, Anne. I know.'

Harry answered, grinning half-heartedly at her.

"I'll paint it on the walls
cause I'm the one at fault
I'll never fight again
and this is how it ends

i don't know what's worth fighting for
or why i have to scream
but now i have some clarity
to show you what i mean
i don't know how i got this way
I'll never be alright
so I'm
breaking the habit
breaking the habit
tonight"

Anne waited until they were out of site before saying the incantation to take her home.


" Any word from Jason yet?" Anne asked, 2 hours later.

" No, but don't worry, owl. We'll hear from him soon." Finbar said, handing her a cup of tea.

She set it down without taking a sip.

" I know, but what if Vernon decides to take the car on a different path and we cant find him and…" Anne trailed off, tears pricking her eyes.

" He won't. He's a man of pattern and he drives the same way home every time." Jamie said, pulling her into a side hug.

Just then, Alice came running up.

" Lady Anne! Word from Jason! They are home!" She said, bowing at Anne.

" Thank you, Alice! Jamie, Drak, Tucker, with me now! We're moving out!" Anne said, grabbing her dagger.

She threw the dagger so that it hit a large diamond on a nearby Ash tree. It would signal Jake to begin his part of the plan.


They were across the street from 4 Privite Drive, watching as Harry walked in behind Vernon. They couldn't move yet because the ministry worker was still there.

" Come on, you dried up coot, move!" Anne yelled at the man under her breath.

Finally after about ten minutes, the man apparated away and Anne moved out, Jason, Jamie, Drak and Tucker behind her. She was just about to knock when a sickening sound came through the door. It sounded like a smack on wet flesh.

Anne sparked flames as she kicked down the door and saw Vernon standing over Harry's limp form.

" That will teach for trying to stand up to me you freak!" Vernon yelled at Harry.

" Step away from my brother." Anne said calmly, flames outlining her form.

" Who the hell are you?" Vernon raged, turning towards her.

" Your worst nightmare." Anne growled ((A/N: yes I did just use a Mulan reference)).

" Get the hell out of my house!" Vernon yelled, walking towards them.

But before the others could react, Anne had Vernon in tight grip around his neck with a fist full of flames.

" Tucker, get Harry out of here and to Meagan." Anne ordered, not taking her eyes off Vernon.

" Jamie, Drak, Jason, get Harry's things!" Anne yelled, the flames intensifying around Vernon's neck. They weren't burning him…. yet.


When the others had left, Anne dropped the beefy man and collected her anger, her eyes an icy red.

"Thumbing through the pages of my fantasies
Pushing all the mercy down, down, down
I wanna see you try to take a swing at me
Come on, gonna put you on the ground, ground, ground

Why are you trying to make fun of me?
You think it's funny?
What the fuck you think it's doing to me?
You take your turn lashing out at me
I want you crying with your dirty ass in front of me"

" You should be dead by now for what you have done to that boy." Anne said, in a voice that was not her own.

" Really? And what are you, a mere child, going to do?" Vernon spat, standing up.

" I am older then you see. I have lived countless lives, seen every war known to man. But what you have done to my brother goes beyond sick. You're insane! He was three when you first hit him and then you have given him chores that a normal adult can't do and expect it done. I should kill you." Anne/Liadan raged, the fire sparking again, causing him to be surrounded by flames.

"All of my hate cannot be found
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming

Thumbing through the pages of my fantasies
I'm above you, smiling at you, drown, drown, drown
I wanna kill and rape you the way you raped me
And I'll pull the trigger
And you're down, down, down

Why are you trying to make fun of me?
You think it's funny?
What the fuck you think it's doing to me?
You take your turn lashing out at me
I want you crying with your dirty ass in front of me"

" What are you gonna do to me?" Vernon asked, fear radiating off him.

"All of my hate cannot be found
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming"

" I am going to make it so you see everything I have seen since I was six, every memory, every scene of you beating Harry. You will either go insane, or kill yourself. Either way, you will regret hurting him." Anne snapped at him, dismissing the flames.

Vernon made a move to stand, but Anne pinned him down with ropes of fast, sharp moving air.

"All my friends are gone, they died (gonna take you down)
They all screamed, and cried (gonna take you down)

I've got my body, got my body back against the wall
I've got my body, got my body back against the wall
Gonna take you down

I've got my body, got my body back against the wall
I've got my body, got my body back against the...

I've got my body, got my body back against the wall
I've got my body, got my body back against the...

All of my hate cannot be found
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming
All of my hate cannot be found
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming
So you can try to tear me down
Beat me to the ground
I will see you screaming"

Anne raised her hands so that were flat over Vernon.

" Dome Etra Kalla Dinne Shakaka Shalla!" Anne chanted out in Vampiric Elfish.

A dome of deep gray surrounded Vernon and at once he was on his side, clutching his head in agony.

" Have fun with the nightmares." Anne said, walking out of the house.


Anne appeared beside Meagan and saw at once that Harry was awake.

" Anne!" he exclaimed.

" Hi yah, Har. How you feeling?" Anne said, sitting down next to him.

" A lot better. Aunt Meagan healed me and I don't even have the old scars." Harry said, sitting up.

" Aunt Meagan? Glad to see you're already comfortable. How do you like your new room?" Anne grinned, pushing a stray hair away from his eyes.

" I like it. It's big and its got windows without bars." Harry said, glancing around the room.

" Never expect them." Anne said, hugging him.

" Hungry, Harry?" Finbar asked bringing in a tray loaded down with food.

" What are you trying to do, drown him in food, Fin?" Anne asked, eyeing the tray.

" Well, I figured he might be hungry and I also thought you might be after your additional ten minutes in the Dursley household." Finbar answered, gazing up at her.

" What were you doing in there, Anne?" Harry asked, shoveling the potatoes in.

" Teaching Vernon a lesson in well behaved manners and how someone should treat a child." Anne replied, moving to the window.

" Like what?" Harry asked, lowering his fork full of food.

" Nothing you need to concern yourself with Harry." Anne said, kissing his cheek and walking to the door.

" Now eat, get some sleep and I'll see you in the morning." She said, closing the door behind her.


Sitting on the hill overlooking the lake, Anne's mind wandered.

" Wonder what Dumbledore will do once he finds out I am not where I should be?" Harry's voice said behind her.

" You're supposed to be sleeping." Anne said without looking at him.

" I can't sleep when I am worried about you." He said, sitting down next to her.

" Worried about me? Why?"

He didn't answer, just stared at the stars.

" What did you do to Vernon?" he said finally, looking down at her.

" I am making him relive every vision I got of him beating you since I was six. He will either go insane or kill himself. Either way, he'll deserve what happens. It was bad enough for me because every blow I felt, every insult I heard, every moment of hunger I felt and I stored it because if I let it out: the pain, the anger, the resentment, I would blow my home, take out have of London. I transferred all of those visions to him. Let him see what he did." Anne said, standing up and staring out at the lake.

She felt arms go around her.

" Did I tell you thank you for saving me?" he whispered into her ear.

" No, but I could tell. You don't need to say it." Anne answered, holding on tight to him.

" now, this order is an order Harry. Go To Bed. You look bone dead tired." Anne kissed his cheek and pushed him forward.

" You gonna go to bed to?" He asked.

" I need to clear my head, but yah I will. Don't worry, big brother, I sleep. Goodnight Harry."

" Goodnight, Anne."

Anne sat back down and began to sing as she watched the stars move.

"2 Am and she calls me cause I'm still awake
Can you help me unravel my latest mistake
I don't love him winter just wasn't my season.
Yea we walk through the doors so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
Hypocrites you're all here for the very same reason.

Cause you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable and life's like an hourglass glued to the table,
No one can find the rewind button girl
So cradle your head in your hands.
And breathe, just breathe, ooh breathe just breathe

May he turned 21 on the base of Fort Bliss
Just today he sat down to the flask in his fist
Ain't been sober since maybe October of last year
Here in town you can tell he's been down for while
But my God it's so beautiful when the boy smiles
Wanna hold him, maybe I'll just sing about it

Cause you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass glued to the table,
No one can find the rewind button boys so cradle your head in your hands
And breathe, just breathe, ooh breath just breathe

There's a light at each end of this tunnel you shout cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made
You'll just make them again if you'll only try turnin' around

2Am and I'm still awake writing a song
If i get it all down on paper it's no longer inside of me threaten' the life it belongs to.
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary screamin' out aloud
And I know that you'll use them however you want to.

But you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass glued to the table,
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand...and breath
Just breathe, ohho breath, just breath,(fading) ohho breathe just breathe."


((Couple days later))

Anne was standing on her balcony watching Harry and Drak spar when the fire behind her roared to life and a platinum blonde came out.

" Hey Draco." Anne said without turning around

" Hey, watch ya doing?" Draco said, coming up beside her.

" Watching Harry work control over the skills and powers he gained." Anne answered, staring down at the group in the courtyard.

" Skills and powers he gained? How did he gain them?" Draco asked, staring down at the group as well.

" My Aunt Meagan magically adopted him. Gives him more right to stay here so Dumbledork cant come in here demanding that he be taken back to Vernon and Petunia Dursley. Not that I would allow him to be taken; Albus would be dead before he even left the courtyard if he forced Harry out of here. This is Harry's home now and there is absolutely nothing that Dumbledork can do about it." Anne explained, lightly tapping her foot to the tune playing on the radio. " Damn, he looks more elf then I do." She added, looking down at her brother with his otherworldly hair and graceful body.

" Hey, can I turn this up?" Draco asked.

" Yah, go ahead." Anne said, grinning at her friend.

Draco headed up and cranked the volume so that even twenty feet down in the courtyard, it could be heard.

"Two, three, four

(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)

Well my heart knows me better than i know myself
So I'm gonna let it do all the talking.
(Woo-hoo,woo-hoo)
I came across a place in the middle of nowhere
with a big black horse and a cherry tree.
(Woo-hoo,woo-hoo)

I fell in fear, upon my back
I said don't look back, just keep on walking.
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)
When the big black horse that looked this way,
Said hey lady, will you marry me?
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)

But i said no, no, no,no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me
No, no, no,no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me

(ooooo,woo-hoo)

And my heart had a problem, in the early hours,
So it stopped it dead for a beat or two.
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)
But i cut some cord, and i shouldn't have done that,
And it won't forgive me after all these years
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)

So i sent her to a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)
Now it won't come back , cause it's oh so happy
And now I've got a hole for the world to see
(woo-hoo,woo-hoo)

But it said no, no, no,no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me
No, no, no,no-no-no
Said no, no, you're not the one for me

(ooooo,woo-hoo) (not the one for me, yeah)
(ooooo,woo-hoo)
Said no,no, no,no, no, no, no
You're not the one for me
Said no,no, no,no, no, no, no
You're not the one for me

Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there cause they've all forsaken me
Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there cause they've all forsaken me"

Anne was singing along and had Draco laughing.

" Draco Malfoy, what is so funny?" Anne asked, her hands on her hips.

" Something about that song and you singing it makes me laugh." Draco said, in between fits of giggles.

Anne glared at him before smirking.

" You know who The All-American Rejects are?" Anne asked, moving to the stereo.

" No, why?" Draco answered, sitting up.

" Then you wont know this song." Anne put the CD in and skipped a few tracks and pushed play.

"Let me know that I've done wrong
When I've known this all along
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away
Find out games you don't wanna play
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret

Who has to know
When we live such fragile lives
It's the best way we survive
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away
Find out games you don't wanna play
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret

Who has to know
The way she feels inside (inside)
Those thoughts I can't deny (deny)
These sleeping dogs won't lie (won't lie)
And now I try to lie
It's eating me apart
Trace this life out

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret)

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret
Dirty little secret
Dirty little secret

Who has to know
Who has to know"

The song went to the next track as Anne moved to the couch where Draco was sitting.

"Hope dangles on a string

Like slow spinning redemption

Winding in and winding out

The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in

So mesmerizing, and so hypnotizing

I am captivated

I am

Vindicated

I am selfish

I am wrong

I am right

I swear I'm right

Swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed

But I am cleaning up so well

I am seeing in me now

The things you swore you saw yourself

So clear

Like the diamond in your ring

Cut to mirror your intention

Oversized and overwhelmed

The shine of which has caught my eye

And rendered me so isolated, so motivated

I am certain now that I am

Vindicated

I am selfish

I am wrong

I am right

I swear I'm right

Swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed

But I am cleaning up so well

I am seeing in me now

The things you swore you saw yourself

So turn

Up the corners of your lips

Part them and feel my fingertips

Trace the moment, fall forever

Defense is paper-thin

Just one touch and I'd be in

Too deep now to ever swim against the current

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip against the current

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

Vindicated

I am selfish

I am wrong

I am right

I swear I'm right

Swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed

But I am cleaning up so well

I am seeing in me now

The things you swore you saw yourself

Slight hope

Dangles on a string

Like slow spinning redemption"

" So, Draco, what brings you to my cozy home?" Anne asked.

" I-I needed to get away. My father is being a prat like usual and my mother is nowhere to be found like usual, so I slipped away while my dad was busy in the basement." He said, leaning back.

" Well, you can stay for as long as you need to." Anne said, placing a comforting hand on his shoulder.

" I would rather move in." he said under his breath.

" If you need to, then you can." Anne told him.

"What?" he looked up at her.

" Friends help each other and right now, you need help. So, it is my home, and you are welcome here whenever and how ever long. I don't like to see my friends hurt. If I can keep you horrid father from turning you evil, then I did my job as a friend." Anne hugged him and he hugged back.

" Thank you. You know, you may be my only true friend." Draco said, after pulling away.

" Well, I am honored." Anne smirked.

The door opened and Harry walked in.

" Hey Harry. How was the match?" Anne said, watching him as he eyed Draco, who was eyeing Harry.

" It was good. Hello, Draco." Harry said stiffly.

" Potter." Draco said, just as stiffly.

" Ok, enough with the tension. Harry, Draco is my friend and guest. I don't want fighting and I know there wont be any, because I know that you two are hiding a friendship that you don't dare reveal to Hogwarts because of prejudices. But here, you're free to be friends, in the open." Anne said, standing up.

Harry and Draco looked at her with amazement.

" How did you…"? Harry began.

" Know that?" Draco finished.

" Oh, for me, it wasn't that hard to tell. You two are crazy about each other. I wish you the best of luck and just know that if anyone at Hogwarts gives you problems, send them to me." Anne grinned as both boys blushed.

" No one here is going to judge you. You are safe to love eachother in public." Anne kissed each boys cheek and walked back to the balcony.

" Hey Anne, you know your right when you said he looked more like an elf then you." Draco said behind her.

She laughed and turned around.

" You think so?"

" Yah, I do." Draco answered, stroking Harry's hair.

Anne stood there for a few minutes before quickly turning around to face the group in the courtyard.

" Meagan, get your elf butt up here!" Anne yelled down.

" Why?" Meagan yelled back up.

" Because you need to help make Draco a sexy, sexy elf!" Anne yelled back.

Meagan grinned and nodded.

Anne turned back around to see two surprised faces.

" Anne, darling, what are you doing?" Harry asked.

" Making Draco part of the family. This way, after you both are turned, a year before me I might add, you can both be immortal together." Anne said, grinning at them.

" Don't worry, Dray, the ministry won't know that you have two moms and personably, I think that you will like Meagan much more then Narcissa." Anne said when she saw a worried look on Draco's face.

" Oh, I am sure I will, but I am worried about what I might look like when I am made an elf." He said, looking at her, a grin plastered on his face.

" Don't worry, it only enhances features on you, like it made Harry's hair seem other worldly and gave him the agility and grace of the elves, a skill that don't tend to use often. But with you, it will be the same, but I think your already piercing gray eyes will be even sharper and you hair will blinding." Anne joked as Meagan walked through the door.

" Let's get this party started." Meagan said as she moved towards Draco.


A couple hours later found the three down in the courtyard around the bonfire.

Draco had come out just as Anne predicted. But, he did gain wild black streaks through his blonde hair, made him seem more like the rebel he was. Harry loved the new him and told him every time he could.

It seemed that now that they could be together in public, Draco and Harry would never leave each other alone for to long and that sent Jamie into fits of laughter because it reminded him of Anne and Conor. He told her that.

" And what is wrong with that?" Anne asked from Conor's arms by the bonfire.

" Nothing, sis, nothing." Jamie said, calming down.

" Anne, sing something!" Draco yelled from Harry's arms, gaining a glare from her.

" And what if I don't want to?" She asked.

" Ummmm…. I don't know, but for me please? Sis?" Draco responded.

" Oh, sweet talk…damn you Harry, you had to teach him that?" Anne said, getting up.

"Yah sorta had to. I don't keep secrets from him." Harry smirked up at her.

" Sure you don't. Alright, let me think of a song!" Anne caved and walked off.

She came back after a few minutes and hoped up onto the nearest stump.

" Ok, boys. Ready?" Anne asked.

They nodded and she drew a deep breath, closed her eyes and at once a tune began to play.

"Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your head.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer but when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.
I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bear my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow."


Sitting at Liadan's tomb early one morning, Anne told her everything that happened.

" I think I am gaining complete control, mother. I can even make a tune play whenever I want. But guess what? Harry is with us and he is really happy now wit Draco. I am too. I love that my brother is happy and I am ecstatic that I was able to bring a smile back to Draco's lips. He hasn't smile truly in so long, I thought he forgot how." Anne said, lying next to the grave marker and the great oak.

" Mom," she said, referring to Lilly, " you would be so proud of us. We have stopped Albus from controlling our lives and…as corny as it sounds, the future looks brighter, the shadows lessening. But there is still a shadow. That worries me." Anne sat up and ran her hand over the carvings and tears pricked her eyes. Harry had carved Draco's initials into the oak and Anne had carved Conor's.

" Mom, we miss you. Mother I miss you. I promise you both that no one will be hurt because of Dumbledore again. I will make sure that dad doesn't spy for him anymore. If I have to hide him, I will. I Just want him safe." Anne stood and turned form the tree.

" I promise you I will."

Anne walked away towards the village and towards an uncertain future.
