Chapter two

(Really the only reason for chapter one was to show you how much Ginny hates Hermione. Just to let you know.)

Chapter two

Musical Background

It was the last night that Harry would be at Hogwarts. He sat on the couch in the common room staring into the fire with Ginny and Ron. Hermione had gone out with her friends and was due back any second. She had been avoiding them for a while now but she had stayed true to her word and had spoken to Harry the day after he had found her in the common room.

The door to the common room opened and Hermione walked in talking with Colin Creevey.

"Hermione!" Ron shouted making both Colin and Hermione jump and fall back.

"Is there something you would like Ronald?" She asked as she got to her feet and brushed herself off.

"We need to talk." Ron said as he patted the spot next to him. Hermione let out a sigh and shook her head before turning to Colin.

"I'll talk to Mark and I'll see what we can do." She said with a smile.

"Thank you Hermione." And with that he ran off. Hermione smiled and walked to a chair and sat cross legged as she stared at the three across them.

"Is there something you need because I really need to go pack my things." Hermione said.

"Hermione, we didn't know that you played the guitar." Ron said. Hermione burst into laughter and smiled.

"Yes, that was quite clear when I saw the look on your face at my guitar. But yes, I have played since I was seven along with the piano and violin." She said with a small smile.

"Why haven't you told us?" Harry asked. Hermione's face turned into one of thought before she looked at them and answered in a calm voice.

"Well, I guess I could start with I stopped playing when I first came to Hogwarts because I didn't have the time to practice. But over the summers I have played in many orchestras. I really didn't feel the need to tell you and I had Cassie and Isabel to talk music to. They understand it better then you would." Hermione said with a shrug. "Really they have been begging me since third year to come back and play at them. And so when the talent show came up they took the opportunity and got me to play with them. I guess I just never felt the need to tell you." She said.

"That is awesome!" Ron said "I mean where did you get that guitar? Those things are so expensive." Ron shouted and Harry and Hermione laughed.

"My farther brought it for me for my 12th birthday." Hermione said as she smiled. "Now that that is all settled I should really be going. I'll see you soon."

(we are going to skip a lot right to Harry's birthday and remember that Lily and James are still alive. Oh and after they graduated from Hogwarts Harry was offered a job as a seeker which he took and Hermione was offered a spot in a world famous symphony. She will be attending Julliard in the fall)

Harry walked downstairs early in the morning when he heard noises from the kitchen. When he reached the bottom of the stairs he was surprised to see his parents sitting at the table drinking cups of coffee.

"Mom, Dad what are you doing awake?" Harry asked as he walked toward the kitchen.

"Harry you need to know something. Please sit down dear." Harry thought that something bad had happened but what he did learn he wasn't expecting.

"Son now that you are turning 17 your senses will become heightened to find for Mate." Harry looked between his mother and farther trying to figure out what in the world they were talking about.

"What are you talking about mum?" He asked

"You are a Veela Harry." James said.

"A what?"

"Now Harry I don't want you to freak out. This is a perfectly normal change. So just listen to what your father has to say."

"Veela's are very attractive people. Remember the Quidditch world cup and guys were trying to jump out of the stands?" Nodded, "Those were Veela's. They attract the opposite sex. But they only want to protect and please there mate. Harry your senses will be heightened, so that you can find your mate."

"Ok what if I don't find her?" Harry asked.

"Then you shall die with a broken heart"

"Thanks for letting me know." Harry said with a soft smile before heading upstairs to go back to sleep.

Harry woke up that morning and walked down stairs to see his mother, farther, godfather, uncle and girlfriend in the kitchen. Ginny smiled and quickly jumped up and ran to kiss Harry.

The whole Weasly clan was in the living room chatting amongst themselves and the each wished Harry a happy birthday as everyone sat down. Harry looked around and was hurt that Hermione was not there when she had promised that she would come. They had patched things up so there really wasn't any reason for her not to be here.

"Mum, where is Hermione?" Harry asked Lily. Harry their was extremely overwhelmed by the sweetest smell.

"Right there dear." She said as she pointed to the door where Hermione was grumbling to herself. "Something wrong Hermione?" Lily asked as she got up and helped Hermione with her violin case.

"They bloody wake me up at 4 in the morning because some person wants to hear us play. I swear if they weren't paying me so much I would gladly quit." She said as she took of the light jacket that protected her dress from the rain and handed it to Lily.

"Do you mind if I change?" She asked. Lily smiled.

"Of course not, but you might want to reassure Harry that you're here" Hermione laughed and walked into the living room with her backpack in her hands. Fred and Gorge made catcalls when they saw Hermione in her knee length slanted dress and her bushy brown hair up in a loose bun.

"Look in good Hermione" Fred making Hermione blush. Hermione smiled and leaned down to kiss Harry on the cheek and wishing him a happy birthday before leaving to change into her clothes. Harry was in a daze as the sweet smell began to fade and he didn't want it to.

Hermione quickly changed in a pair of ragged old jeans and a white tank top and began to help Lily in the kitchen with lunch. As everyone began to move into the kitchen James, Remus, and Series watched Harry closely to see what he would do now that his veela powers were in full motion.

Harry had left to play some quidditch with Ron and some of the other Weaslys as the rest sat and talked and Hermione and Lily made lunch.

As Harry walked back into the house with his broom in hand he instantly dropped it and he fell back into his daze when he smelt the sweet smell once again. He followed the sweet smell and when Ginny tried to kiss him he simply sidestepped him and continued forward. James, Remus and Sirius watched as Ginny became enraged and Harry walked to Hermione who had her back to him and wrap his arms around her waist making Hermione gasp.

"Harry what are you doing?" Harry didn't answer but just continued to smell her. She tried to get out of his arms but he wouldn't let go. "Let go of me" She laughed. Ginny was furious that Harry was holding Hermione and was kissing her neck. But everyone that knew about Harry was instantly happy that Harry had found his mate so fast, and that it wasn't Ginny. Ginny was far to possessive and they all knew that she was after the Potter fortune.

"Harry James Potter get you hands off her!" Everyone looked at Ginny and Harry growled as Ginny stepped forward to pull him away from his mate. This scared Ginny and she took a step back. That was enough to make Hermione push Harry away and go behind Lily leaving Harry looking very, very hurt.

"What's wrong with him?" Hermione asked. Lily sighed and put her arm around Hermione.

"Hermione, Harry is a Veela and your kind of his mate." Lily explained to a very confused Hermione. Hermione was shocked but Ginny on the other hand was dreadfully angry.

"Hell no! Harry is my boyfriend and I intend to keep it that way!" Ginny tried to give Harry a passionate kiss but he pushed her away making her scream with rage.

Hearing the youngest member of the clan scream the whole Weaslyfamily ran into the room to see Hermione blushing under Harry's intense gaze, and Ginny shaking with rage. Molly quickly went to his daughter's side to see what was wrong.

"That bitch is trying to steal my boyfriend!" Ginny yelled. Mis Weasly had been trying to force Harry to marry her daughter because of the large fortune that it would bring upon the poor Weasly family.

"That isn't the truth Molly!" Remus tried to defend Hermione.

"Shut up you stupid wolf I don't want to hear anything more about that mud blood."

Hermione couldn't take it anymore. She ran as fast as she could and apparatedback to the house she shared with Mark, Jacob, and Cassie. Harry saw her run and went after her as did Ginny and Ron (Ron was on Ginny's side)

(/)

Hermione ran into the house and into the kitchen where she knew her roommates would be eatting lunch.

Hermione ran into Mark and when he saw his distraught friend he hugged her waiting for her to calm down. Harry, Ron, and Ginny ran into the room. Harry quickly went and pulled Hermione into his arms allowing her to cry on his shoulder as he rubbed her back.

When she had calmed down Harry lifted her chin and kissed her fully on the lips. Hermione was shocked to say at the least and she gasped giving Harry the chance he wanted to slip his tongueinto her mouth making her moan. Behind them Ginny was screaming with rage as the rest of the people from the party walked into the house. Mark smiled as well as Jacob and Cassie.

Molly marched over to Harry and pulled him away from Hermione pushing her back into Mark who caught her without spilling a drop of his coffee.

"Just what I need." Hermione said as she took his mug and began to drink off the terrible head ace that was coming on.

Ron walked up to Hermione as he watched Harry struggle to get free and pulled the glass away and kissed her making her drop the mug and shatter on the floor sending hot coffee everywhere. Hermione pushed him off but he had just done one thing that he shouldn't have.

Mark and Jacob both cracked their knucklesand glared at Ron. Ron backed away from the two men but bumped into Harry who was standing behind him with narrowed eyes.

"Don't you ever touch my girl again." Harry threatened as he pushed Ron away.

"Anyone that dose not live out!" Cassie said as she pushed everyone into the living room. Harry quickly bypassed Cassie and picked Hermione up in his arms and hugged held her there.

"I love you Harry Potter" She whispered

"I love you to"

"Harry, take her up to her room. It is the third one on the right." Jacob said as he moved toward the living room to calm everything down. Harry took Hermione by the hand and led her to her bedroom and laid her down on her bed.

When Harry went back downstairs he stared Ginny, Molly, and Ron down.

"If any one of you even dare touch my mate again you shall pay dearly." Harry threatened as his eyes grew dark.

"Stay out of our house Molly, you have hurt us all enough." Lily said.

"But that whore tried to steal my daughter's future husband." Molly said.

"What ever gave you the idea that my son was going to marry your daughter?" Lily asked with narrowed eyes.

"I'm going to go take Hermione out. She dosen't need this." Cassie said as she walked up stairs. It wasn't long before Cassie and Hermione came back down and headed toward the door.

"Where are you going darling?" Mark asked Cassie.

"I'm taking her to the bakery up the street." Mark nodded and Cassie and Hermione left without another word. Harry frowned but knew he had other things to do.

"If someone will please tell us what is going on? You start to worry when your best friend comes running home crying." Mark said.

"Harry is a veela." James said. A look came upon Mark's and Jacob's faces.

"Oh and she's his mate." Mark finished.

"Yeah."

"And these two are trying to pull them apart." Sirius said with a frown.

"Dude this is sad. You guys can stay here and figure this out. We are going to go join the girls for some coffee." Both Mark and Jacob shook their heads and left the room in utter shock.

"I know how to solve this, Molly, Ginny stay away from me until you have come to accept that I love Hermione. Ron stay away from my mate." Harry said. With that he left to join Hermione and the others. Ginny, Ron, and Molly in rage and everyone else left to go do their own things.

A/n: Ok so there is the second chapter.

Molly really just wanted Harry to marry Ginny because Harry's family is like the richest in the whole world and her family is really poor. And Mark, Jacob, and Cassie all got a house after graduation and Isabel got engaged to Neville.

Next chapter is when the whole family gets together.
