A.N. I'd like to have a moment of silence for the lives lost in the attack against America….
Thank you. My heart goes out to everyone who was affected by the terrorist attack.
Thank you all for reviewing!!!! I am aware that the Author Alerts aren't working anymore for everyone who doesn't have Support Systems, but I hope that you will still check for updates (obviously not on this story, because it's ending :-( But for other stories that I will have)
Harry ended up having dinner at Hogwarts. The Gryffindors begged him to sit at his table, and he agreed, so long as Ivy could sit there too. Harry was bombarded with questions all through his meal. Ivy and Hermione kept giggling together, and making Ron and Harry very apprehensive. In the middle of a conversation Harry got a message from Sarge.
"What was that all about?" Ron asked after Harry had finished talking.
"She's just reminding me that my sick leave is almost up," Harry said. "I'm supposed to return to work on Monday."
"So you're coming back here?" Ron said hopefully. Harry nodded.
"That's wonderful!" Hermione exclaimed. "We get to see you sooner than we thought!"
"I can't wait," Harry said.
"I missed this room," Harry said as he walked into the seventh year boy's dorm. There was still an extra bed.
"They never took your bed out of this room… I guess as a tribute or something," Ron said.
"Hmm…" Harry said, as he flopped down onto it. It smelled clean, and it seemed that the House-Elves had cleaned it recently.
"Heya Harry," Seamus said, coming into the room after them. "What are you doing?"
"Resting," Harry said, closing his eyes and pretending to snore. "You have no idea how hard patrolling the seventh floor all day can be."
"Ha ha ha," Ron said. "I bet it's no where near as hard as the tests McGonnagal has been giving us."
"Do you still have to take the N.E.W.T.'s, Harry?" Seamus asked. Harry gave a sly smile and shook his head.
"That's not fair!"
"Yes it is," Harry said. "Look at what we have to do everyday."
"Besides that," he said. "We have to risk out lives and (at times) get our asses kicked."
"Yeah, and then after that you get to go dancing and rock climbing," Seamus said. Ron had told the other Gryffindor boys about the Order.
"Yep," Harry said, smiling again. Seamus threw a pillow at Harry. Telekinetically, Harry sent it flying back at Seamus.
"Oh, that reminds me," Ron said, jumping off of his bed and running to his trunk. He flung it open and pulled out-
"My Firebolt," Harry said. He jumped off of his old bed as well and taking the Firebolt into his hand. "I haven't flown for… two years."
"You haven't?" Ron said, his eyes widening. "Do you have a broom at your house?"
"Yes, but it's a vintage broom and I can't fly it because it's worth a lot of money." Harry turned his broom over in his hand and said, "When is your next Quidditch Practice, Ron?
"It's tonight. Why?"
"Because, I want to fly again. And that Seeker of yours needs a little work," Harry replied.
It felt good to be back in the air. Harry did a couple of loopty-loops and started flying straight toward the ground.
"Harry! Slow down! You're making the rest of us look bad," Ron yelled. Harry stopped barely an inch away from the ground.
"WHOO HOO!" Ivy yelled from the stands, jumping up and down.
Harry rolled over on his broom and then jumped off of his broom.
"That was awesome," Ivy said. "I've never seen anyone fly like that. Of course… I never really saw anyone fly except for in that one Quidditch game…"
"I thought you said you were going to help me out!" Squeaked the Seeker from 30 feet above Harry.
"One minute," Harry called. He mounted his broom again and flew up so he was level with the Seeker. "Okay, one of the first things you need to remember is…"
It was dark when the Gryffindor team, Harry, and Ivy went back inside. They sat by the fire and chatted happily, and Jimmy and Ginny were busy doing homework, while they were actually playing footsie under the table.
"So, Harry," Ivy said. "Truth or Dare?"
Harry rolled his eyes and said, "Not this game again-"
"Yes, this game again. Just be happy that Celeste isn't here. Now… Truth or Dare."
Ivy got a disappointed look. "All right… hmmm. Have you ever done the nasty with anyone but Celeste?"
That answer was simple, "No."
"I can't believe that you broke up with Celeste," said Seamus, walking over.
"I can't believe that you've had sex!" Hermione exclaimed. "Harry James Potte-"
"Hermione, truth or dare?" Harry asked flatly.
"I dare you to magically put makeup, a curly blond wig, and high-heels on Snape," Harry said.
"On a teacher! Are you mad?"
"So you're chicken?" Ivy asked. "Buck! Buck buck buuucckkk!!!"
"I refuse to," Hermione said, crossing her arm.
"Herm, think of all the times that Snape has taken points off of Gryffindor. Remember that time that he made a crack about your teeth in our 4th year," Harry said. Hermione thought for a moment. Then she waved her wand and muttered something under her breath. Ron and Harry grinned at her.
"You did it?" Ron asked.
"Yep. But I added a tiara," Hermione said slyly. Everyone roared with laughter and kept laughing until Hermione said, "All right… Ron, truth or dare…"
The game continued late into the night, and it was about 12 o'clock when Hermione proclaimed that the next question was the last one.
"Harry, truth or dare?" Hermione asked.
"Dare," Harry yawned.
"I dare you to…" Hermione yawned for a moment, "I dunno… I'm too tired to dare you to do anything. Make up your own dare." Harry thought for a moment and then leaned over to Ivy. He kissed her passionately on the lips.
"That's it?" Ron said.
"It seemed like a good idea to me," Harry said.
"Yeah! Me to!" Said Ivy, who was clinging onto Harry's shoulder.
"We'd better get to sleep," Hermione said, pulling herself off of the ground. "Good night Harry, good night Ivy."
"Good night Jimmy."
Jimmy, who was curled up in the corner with Ginny, waved. Ginny had fallen asleep and Jimmy was on the edge of sleep as well.
"'Night everyone," Harry said.
When Hermione and Ron walked down to breakfast the next morning they found the Agents were milling around. Two or three Agents were taking down surveillance devices.
"Harry," Hermione said, walking over to where Harry was holding up Ivy while she took down another device. "What's going on?"
"We're leaving," Harry said. "Our job is done here and we are no longer needed."
"But-but-" Hermione sputtered. "You can't go!"
"I'm sorry Hermione," Harry said, as Ivy jumped down. "We have to."
"I'll see you soon! I promise," Harry said. "Remember, Ron's going into the Order after school. You'll see me loads!"
"It's just a few more months Herm," Ivy said, slinking her arm around Harry.
"I'll write a bunch. A letter at least once a week," Harry said. Hermione gave a smile and then threw her arms around his neck.
"I'll miss you s-so much," She said.
"I'll miss you too," Harry said as he pulled out of the hug. "We're going to stay for breakfast, but then we're going back…"
"You have to come and visit us sometime," Ron said. "We'll tell you when we're going to Hogsmeade, and when our Quidditch Championship is."
"Okay," Harry said, smiling.
During breakfast all of the students were saying goodbye to the Agents. One 1st year Hufflepuff actually ran up to Sphinx and hugged her. She looked slightly surprised and then hugged her back.
"Well, well, well, is Potter disappearing again?" Sneered Draco Malfoy, walking up to the Agents table.
"No, you are," Harry said. He snapped his fingers, and Draco instantly disappeared.
"Bring him back Harry," Sphinx said in a warning voice. Harry rolled his eyes, and Draco instantly reappeared in a heap on the ground.
"You'll pay for that Potter," Malfoy hissed. Harry gave a sarcastic smile. As Draco walked away, Harry flicked his wand and a "kick me" sign appeared on his back. Ivy snorted with laughter.
"I would like to propose a toast," Professor Dumbledore said, "To the Agents of the Order of the Phoenix, for protecting us and even giving their own lives for ours. For ridding the world of the Dark Lord, and for making us all happy. To the Order of the Phoenix.
"Once again, thank you," Professor Dumbledore said. Sphinx waved her wand and the Agent's table disappeared. She flicked her wand once more and the Mission Room disappeared as well.
"Thank you for this…experience," Sphinx said. "I hope to see you all soon. Farewell."
"BYE!" Bellowed the school. Sphinx shook Dumbledore's hand and Molecularized out of there. A few moments later most of the other Agents did to. Except for the three Agents that had gone to Hogwarts.
"Thank you for everything," Angelina said. "And I know that we nearly gave all of you heart attacks when we all reappeared, it's for the best."
Professor Lupin smiled and said, "Stay out of trouble you three."
"That's impossible," Harry said. Angelina and Cedric looked at him. "At least it is for me."
There was a small laugh that echoed around the room. Harry smiled and then disappeared.
Harry was pacing. Back and forth, back and forth. He nearly bumped into his father, who was also pacing.
"Remind me, why is it that mom doesn't want us in the delivery room?" Jimmy asked as he flicked through a magazine.
"She says it makes her uncomfortable," James mumbled, running a hand through his messy hair.
"You're as nervous now as you were the first time," Sirius said with a slight grin.
"Shut up Sirius," James said, sitting down next to him and putting his head in his hands.
"Yes, but remember, the first time he fainted," Remus said.
"You be quiet too," James said, peeking out between his fingers.
"Mom let us into the delivery room last time," Jimmy grumbled.
"And do you remember what happened last time?" James asked.
"Yes, we were all very civilized and then Mom had Olivia."
"You screamed "What is that thing coming out of her ass"," James said. Harry snorted with laughter.
"Hey! I was thirteen then," Jimmy snapped. "I'm 16 now. Big difference."
"Jimmy, I was more mature than you when I was three," Victoria said. Olivia, who was sitting on Victoria's lap held up three fingers. She was just now getting the hang of numbers.
"Excuse me," said a nurse from the room.
"Yes!?" James exclaimed, jumping up from his chair and rushing over.
"Your wife is screaming for you," the nurse said.
"JAMES POTTER GET YOUR ASS IN HERE!" came a shriek from the other room.
James rushed in.
"Wait! Sir, you're going to need-"
Jimmy burst out laughing.
"You are such an idiot," Victoria said.
"Who asked you?" Jimmy snapped.
"Well, shut up."
"You shut up!"
Sirius stood up and pulled Jimmy away from Victoria.
"Jeez, you two are like three year olds."
"TWEE (three)!" Olivia squealed. Harry chuckled slightly. There was another shriek from the room.
"I thought those rooms were supposed to be soundproof," Remus said thoughtfully.
"They were," Sirius said with a sly grin.
Twenty minutes later everyone was extremely nervous (except for Olivia, who had fallen asleep, curled up in a chair) Harry was still pacing, Sirius was drumming his fingers on the armrest and Victoria was nervously biting her nails.
Suddenly the doors burst open and James ran in.
"It's a boy!" All of the people jumped out of her seats. Olivia simply rolled over and tried to get a more comfortable position in the arm chair.
"Can we see him?"
"What's his name?"
"Can I have your autograph?" Harry turned in surprise to see who had said the last comment. It was the nurse who had told James that he was wanted.
"Er-sure," Harry hastily scribbled his name on a piece of paper in her outstretched hand before turning back to his father.
"Can we go and see him, Dad?" Victoria asked, putting on puppy-eyes. "Pretty please."
"In a little while," he said. "Your mom needs to rest. And she wants some private time with the baby."
"Have you decided on a name yet?"
"No," James said. "We thought that we'd let Harry choose the names. First and Middle."
Harry looked stunned for a moment.
"Pick Abercrombie," Jimmy whispered into his ear.
"Pick Franklin," Victoria whispered as well.
"TWEE!" Cried the newly-awaken Olivia.
"While you deliberate, I'm going back in there," James said. "Sirius, Remus, Lily wants to see you two as well."
Sirius and Remus followed him into the delivery room.
"So, what's it going to be?" Jimmy asked. "The ever-cool Abercrombie, or boring old Franklin?"
"Neither," Harry said. "I choose Sean."
"Sean?" Victoria said, wrinkling her nose slightly.
"Sean! Good idea!" Jimmy exclaimed. "I'm sure that Sean's ghost will be happy!"
"Now, what are you going to have for the middle name?" Victoria said. "Franklin…"
"I'll let you two decide that," Harry said.
Harry gently knocked on the door of the delivery room and entered when he heard his mother's tired voice say, "Come in."
The three men were crowded around Lily, who was holding a bundle of blankets. Harry slowly walked over and saw a tiny face peeking out of the blankets. It had curly black hair, and its little eyes were closed.
"He has brown eyes, like James," Remus informed Harry. "He just went to sleep."
"Have you decided on a name yet?" James asked.
"Yeah, I chose Sean," Harry said, looking down at his little brother. "Victoria and Jimmy are choosing the middle name." Suddenly the two of them went rolling past the room, scratching and punching each other.
"ABERCROMBIE!" Harry started laughing silently. They all crowded around the baby once more until Victoria and Jimmy came in.
"We chose," Victoria said.
"Drum-roll please," Jimmy said.
Victoria rolled her eyes and said, "We chose Aberlin."
"Aberlin?" Lily said, raising her eyebrow.
"It's a combo of Abercrombie and Franklin," Jimmy explained. Lily smiled, and then she started laughing.
"Well, at least we got them to agree on something," James sighed. "Too bad it had to be this."
"I'm only joking!"
"All right-" barked another nurse, coming into the room. "Everyone out!This woman needs rest! Out!"
She pushed them outside into the hall, but they continued to look through the windows.
"What's going on!" Olivia exclaimed, for she was too short to see into the windows.
"They're taking Sean away from Mom," Jimmy said. "She's going to sleep."
Harry leaned down and picked Olivia up so she could see.
"That's my baby brother!" She said loudly, pointing through the glass. Harry smiled and put Olivia onto his shoulder.
"This is one of the happiest moments of my life," James said. "Well, you know… besides the other 4 times it's occurred."
"This is one of the most happiest moments in my life too, dad," Harry said. "Definitely."
He smiled at his family and friends, before turning back to the window where the newest edition of his family could be seen.
