A thousand welcomes to you with your marriage. May you be healthy all your days. May you be blessed with long life and peace, may you grow old with goodness, and with riches.

The Open House - "Show of Presents"

Before Preethi is married to Lachlan, Sapna holds an open house for a traditional "show of presents." Similar to a bridal shower, invitations are sent to the women among those who gave wedding gifts to the couple. The wedding gifts are unwrapped and set out with the card of the gift giver. The occasion is an opportunity for Preethi to get acquainted with the wedding party members and guests before the wedding. After the show of presents, Preethi is dressed in long trains made of old curtains or other household materials. She is given a baby doll, a plastic potty with salt in the bottom, and other small items to carry. Her friends and guests escort her through her town, singing and banging pots and pans, heralding Preethi's upcoming nuptials. To gather luck, Preethi exchanges kisses for money, which is dropped into the potty.

The Stag Night

Lachlan gets taken out for a stag night which is the equivalent to the bride's taking out. Although stemming more from a British tradition than a Scottish one, Lachlan is dressed up and taken around town for his stag night by his male companions. Lachlan and his friends find a bar or party place to celebrate by drinking to excess. They may indulge in a great deal of (for the most part) harmless practical joking, of which Lachlan is the main target. When the wild night winds down, Lachlan is left in the street in front of his home partially or totally stripped of his clothes, and in some occasions tied up.

The Silver Sixpence

Preethi is given a Silver Sixpence to place in her shoe the morning of her wedding. this is given as a token of good luck!

The Wedding Procession

The following day the bridal party of Preethi's family made their way to the church, flower petals being thrown in front of Preethi. The first person they encountered was called the first foot and would be given a coin and a drink of whisky by Preethi. He would then have to accompany the bridal party for one mile before being allowed to continue on his way.

The Church

Just outside the church Preethi's family and friends would be met by the clergyman and make their wedding vows. Then a mass was held in the church, during which the clergyman blessed food brought by the guests. It was traditional for the clergyman, however shy, to kiss Preethi.

The Pipes

It would not be a Scottish wedding without the bride entering the venue and the Bride and Groom departing to the sound of the bagpipes. Most professional pipers know the routines of the ceremony and will know what to play and when to play it! Also, they are most always positioned outside of the venue to protect the ears of your guests.

Hand Fasting

In a modern ceremony, a hand fasting is incorporated into many wedding ceremonies in a way to honor their Celtic heritage. Lachlan and Preethi's hands are bound together in a cord or a tartan cloth during their vows. This is to show that from that point forward, they are no longer two, but are one!

Pinning of the Tartan

Following the proclamation of husband and wife this additional ceremony takes place,"The pinning of the tartan". This ceremony is customized to each family depending on whether the bride or the groom is being accepted into the clan. Preethi is marrying into the Macmillian clan, Catrìona Macmillian presents Preethi with the Macmillian clan's tartan in the form of a rosette pin or sash which is fastened with the clan badge. Often this presentation is pinned or dressed to the bride as acceptance into the grooms clan.

Presentation of the Family Sword

This is a beautiful tradition where Lachlan presents Preethi with the Macmillian family sword that will be given to their first born son

Traditional Scottish Wedding Cake

The traditional Scottish wedding cake consists of two tiers of brandy-flavored fruitcake. The cake was baked at the time of Lachlan and Preethi's engagement. Only one tier is eaten at the wedding celebration, while the other is saved to celebrate the birth of the Preethi and Lachlan's first born.

The First, Second and Last Dance

Preethi and Lachlan lead off the dancing with a traditional reel, and Preethi's second dance is reserved for the person of the highest rank among the guests which happens to be her stepfather Lucius Malfoy, the King Consort. The Sword Dance is usually performed at a traditional wedding in Scotland, which is similar to an Irish jig or a Highland fling. The guests gather in a circle before leaving the reception site and sing "Auld Lang Syne".

The Shaim Spring

It was the privilege of Preethi's to choose the music for the 'Shaim Spring', which she danced with Desiree Malfoy, Sorcha Macmillian, Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Penelope Clearwater, and Ewan MacGregor.

The Walk Home

The entire entourage escorts Lachlan and Preethi to their new home. Before Preethi enters her new home, an oatcake or bannock is broken above her head and a piece of the cake is passed around to everyone. Then Preethi is carried over the threshold by Lachlan. The Minister's blessing over the newlyweds, their home, and their marriage bed culminates the ceremony.

Druid Ceremony for Lachlan and Preethi

Catrìona and Braden smiled on as Preethi and Lachlan faced one another. Braden almost choked when he saw Lachlan place his hand over Preethi's heart and the Preethi do the same to Lachlan. The words that Lachlan spoke next, caused him and Catrìona to hold hands even tighter, and everyone else gathered in the Great Hall, felt the power of the words wash over them. Lucius and Sapna smiled on as Preethi and Lachlan faced one another. Lucius almost choked when he saw Lachlan place his hand over Preethi's heart and the Preethi do the same to Lachlan. The words that Preethi spoke next, caused him and Sapna to hold hands even tighter, and everyone else gathered in the Great Hall, felt the power of the words wash over them.

"If aught must be lost, 'twill be my honor for yours. If one must be foresaken, 'twill be my soul for yours. Should death come anon, 'twill be my life for yours. I am Given," Preethi says tearfully.

"If aught must be lost, 'twill be my honor for yours. If one must be foresaken, 'twill be my soul for yours. Should death come anon, 'twill be my life for yours. I am Given," Lachlan repeated as a lone tear slid down his cheek.

"It is with tremendous pleasure that I pronounce you husband and wife. Lachlan, you may now kiss your bride," Albus smiled.

Lachlan pulled Preethi into his arms and kissed her. Everyone rose to their feet and began clapping and cheering for the happy couple.

After their Scottish wedding, the newlyweds went to live in their new estate South Wraxall Manor which is a historic manor that is 252 acres. It cost 50 million Euros which is 88.5 million in dollars. Their new mansion is located on Mayfair Street in London. The grand entrance to the 28,000-square-foot house has a double staircase and a glass elevator. There is also an indoor leisure complex that has a swimming pool with a glass bridge, sauna and not surprisingly a Turkish bath that seats 20. The Queen Anne-style house has 25 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms and is set within 5.5 acres, which includes three gatehouses and a number of gardens. It was designed by the renowned Victorian architect Norman Shaw in 1875, and it continues to have commanding views over the River Thames towards Battersea Park from its second floor ballroom. 11 staff bedrooms, a dining room that seats 20, private terraces, air conditioning, a second-floor penthouse, and state-of-the-art security and hi-fi systems. Do not forget the cinema and parking for five cars. It also has an Orangery in the back garden, where there is also a croquet lawn and a coach house with two-bedroom suites. But it's not lacking in modern amenities: Jacuzzi, steam room, gym, floodlit tennis court, and billiards room. An underground tunnel connects the house to the three-vehicle garage, and outside there is a Japanese-inspired garden with a waterfall. Two 50-foot long ballrooms, a catering kitchen fitted out for banquets, a cherry wood-paneled library and gentleman's study. It is described as a "palatial residence for Europe's royalty and nobility." A newly restored Mayfair mansion, right in the heart of central London, comes with a sense of grandeur--check out the double-height, galleried reception room with chandelier.

Preethi and Lachlan wrestled on the bed for a moment, both trying to gain the upper hand. In the end, Lachlan came out on top. He pinned her down and stared into her green eyes.

"I love you Preethi,"

"And I love you Lachlan,"

Their lips met in a fiery kiss. It had been months since they had made love. Preethi wrapped her arms around Lachlan's shoulders, pulling him closer.

"Mmm," he moaned as she ran her finger tips down his spine.

Using her weight, Preethi rolled them over so that she was on top. The weeks and months of sexual frustration came to a steaming collision as Preethi eagerly slid herself down on Lachlan's hard cock.

"Oh god!"

"Sweet Merlin!"

Slowly, Preethi began to ride him, taking him deeper and deeper with each down stroke. Lachlan moaned as he took hold of her hips and released control over to Preethi. As she began moving faster, his hands slid up her body to take hold of her breasts.

"Preethi, you feel so good," Lachlan groaned.

"So do you Lachlan. Oh god, fuck me Lachlan. Please," Preethi begged.

Without pulling out of her, Lachlan rolled Preethi on her back and began to pound into her. He knew what she wanted. Her cries, moans and sighs of pleasure were like sweet music to his ears. He laid fierce kisses against her neck as he drove into her with unrelenting passion.

"Yes! Oh god Lachlan! More!" she cried.

"On your knees. Now." he ordered.

He pulled out only long enough for her to move into the new position. Once on her knees, he slammed into he with renewed vigor. Screaming in rapture, Preethi thrust back against him, taking him even deeper than before.

"I can't...oh god yes...take much more," she panted as he used her hair as reins.

"Me either. Hang on baby. Oh yeah..." he growled as pounded his cock in and out of her.

Their movements became even faster, both wanting to come as one. Pulling her head back, their lips met as both of their bodies began seizing up in release. Preethi screamed into the kiss as she felt Lachlan exploding into her and her own vagina walls, releasing her juices around him.

"PREETHI! OHHHHHHH!"

"LACHLAN! SWEET MERLIN! YESSSSSSSSSSSS!"

They collapsed onto the bed in a tangle of arms, legs, and flesh. Gasping hard and kissing tenderly. Lachlan managed to move so he was no longer crushing her beneath him. A few moments later, Preethi laid her head against his chest.

"That was great," she sighed.

"Yes it was. Preethi."

Three days after their Scottish Wedding Ceremony, Lachlan and Preethi get ready for their Hindu Wedding Ceremony.

Sagai Ceremony

An astrologer will normally calculate the best date and time for the sagai - the first of many religious ceremonies in a Hindu marriage. This is considered the formal engagement ceremony. Lachlan and Preethi exchange rings. During a sagai, Preethi's eldest brother, Viktor Krum, or father, Lucius, place a tilak (a red mark) on Lachlan's forehead, and present him with a coconut, a gold ring or coin, and some other ornaments, depending on the financial status of Preethi's family. Gifts for other members of Lachlan's family may also be presented. Lachlan's family then presents Preethi's family with gifts. These include garments, jewellery, and cosmetics. They must include mehandi (henna), glass bangles, hair oil, and a comb

Tilak Ceremony

Generally, the male members of Lachlan's family like Ernie, Niall, or Braden put Tilak on Lachlan's forehead by using Kumkum (the paste of red vermillion). Tilak Ceremony is organized in the groom's residence or in temples. After the Tilak ceremony, Lucius offers gifts to Lachlan and to the other members of Lachlan's family. Clothes, fruits, sweets and many other gifts are offered during this celebration. Braden offers coconut, sugar, rice, jewelry, clothes and henna to Preethi's family members. Usually, the relatives of Lachlan's family carry all the things to Preethi's house.

Mehendi Ceremony

The Mehendi Ceremony is an important ritual and usually takes place one or two days before the actual wedding. The mehendi is the traditional Hindu color of auspiciousness, joy and celebration. But more than that it is the bridal herb par excellence. It evokes a world of beauty, leisure and sensuous womanhood. It exudes tenderness, softness and a mystery as mysterious as the heart of a woman. The reddish brown color of Mehendi - which stands for the prosperity that a bride is expected to bring to her new family - is considered most auspicious for all wedding-related ceremonies. Desiree Malfoy, Sorcha Macmillian, Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Penelope Clearwater, Màiri Macmillian danced the songs Mehendi Hai Rachne Wali from the Hindi movie Zubaida.

Sangeet Ceremony

The female members of Lachlan and Preethi's sides sing and dance to rejoice the occasion. Sangeet Ceremonies forms an integral part of the Indian wedding Ceremonies. Basically Sangeet Ceremonies are usually held after The Mehendi Ceremony. The women folk of the household gather around Preethi. This is followed by fun, frolic, dance and traditional weeding songs. The theme of these Sangeet Ceremonies revolve between the bride and groom- their love life, how they fell in love, how they met, and likewise. The dances are well choreographed and practiced. Desiree Malfoy, Sorcha Macmillian, Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Penelope Clearwater, Màiri Macmillian danced the songs Sayna Sayna from the Hindi movie BluffMaster and Sajna Ve Sajna from the movie Chameli. Sonia Malfoy, Lucien Malfoy, Jessica Malfoy, and Adam Malfoy danced Didi Tera Dewarr from the Hindi movie Hum Aapke Hain Koun. Desiree Malfoy, Sorcha Macmillian, Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Penelope Clearwater, Màiri Macmillian, Sonia Malfoy, Jessica Malfoy, Viktor Krum Fabien Prewitt Jr, Draco Malfoy, Ernie Macmillian, Niall Macmillian, Lucien Malfoy Adam Malfoy and Ewan MacGregor danced Koi Jane Koi Na Jane from the Hindi movie Aur Pyar Ho Gaya and Saajan Ke Ghar from the Hindi movie Lajja.

Haldi Ceremony

During this time, Lachlan and Preethi will also be anointed with haldi - a specially prepared paste. Traditionally, this ceremony of haldi is followed in each and every marriage ceremony, so that Preethi can have sparkling skin on the bright day of marriage. Moreover, it is a very interesting as well as fun filled ceremony where everybody actively takes equal part. This ceremony is celebrated individually in houses of Preethi and Lachlan. Mainly female relatives or friends take part in this ceremony. The ritual of haldi is intended to sheer Lachlan of nervousness and as a good sign of fortune and prosperity.

Introduction

The Hindu marriage ceremony is a highly auspicious occasion in Indian culture, conducted according to the 6,000 year-old Vedic Hindu tenets. According to the Vedas, the canonical Hindu scriptures, the Hindu wedding ceremony is one of the sixteen samskaras (sacrements). A Hindu ceremony consists of prayers, invocations, and vows. The Priest recites holy mantras in Sanskrit, the most ancient of Indo-European languages.

A Hindu Wedding is more of a community gathering or party than a quiet, serious event. The ceremony is a rite enabling two individuals to start their journey in life together, whereby their souls are brought into union spiritually, mentally, and physically in the sacred bond of matrimony. The wedding takes place under the Kalyana Mandapam, or wedding pavilion, which is adorned with flowers and decorations. The ceremony lays emphasis on three essential values: happiness, harmony, and growth. According to Hindu culture, marriage is a sacred spiritual partnership between two souls, who together shall lead a dutiful, virtuous, and noble life.

Traditional Nadaswaram music (Indian wind instrument) plays in the background as the ceremony takes place. For every stage of the ceremony the priest will use the following items:

Fresh flowers to signify the bounty of nature.

Coconut, a complete fruit containing food and water, signifying fertility.

Rice and grains to signify wealth, prosperity, happiness, and well being.

Ghee (purified butter) to feed the sacred fire, it is pure and gives energy.

Kumkum (red powder used for marking the forehead) a sign of good luck.

Barat The Arrival of the Groom

Relatives and friends join Lachlan by singing and dancing along the way to the wedding site, indicating the occurrence of an auspicious occasion.

Jai Mala & Pokhavum Greeting Ceremony

Preethi and Lachlan exchange garlands. This expresses the desire of the couple to marry each other. Lachlan's friends and family are formally greeted and welcomed at the entrance by Preethi's family and relatives. Preethi's mother Sapna, welcomes Lachlan. He is made aware of the hard work, and the world of bitter sweet experiences symbolized by curd, honey, ghee (clarified butter), and cotton seeds which are placed in an earthen pot representing the world. If Lachlan's ready to make the commitment and to deal with this type of world, he is asked to break the earthen pot and enter.

Gauri Puja

Preethi offers prayers to the goddess Gauri seeking the blessings of prosperity and a long and happy married life. This puja also includes Raksha Bandhanam for the protection of the Preethi.

Vighneswara (Ganesha) Puja

Vigneshwara is the remover of obstacles. Vigneshwara is worshipped first before the commencement of wedding rites. Lachlan prays to Lord Vigneshwara to bless him with wisdom and knowledge and to enable him to overcome all obstacles.

Kashi Yatra

For a higher spiritual purpose Lachlan is given a final opportunity to leave before the bride enters. He is asked if he would like to abandon worldly life and lead the life of an ascetic. Lucius requests Lachlan not to leave, but to stay and marry Preethi.

Madhuparka –Parents receive the Groom

Preethi's father, Lucius, gives Lachlan a chair to sit on, water for washing his hands and feet, and honey-water mixture for sipping. Lucius and Sapna wash Lachlan's feet. Preethi's parents than honor Lachlan with kumkum (red sacred powder), rice and flowers. Joote -in order to step into the mandap, Lachlan has to remove his shoes as a sign of respect. When he does so, Preethi's sisters will try to steal his shoes and hold them for ransom. Lachlan's brothers are supposed to try to protect the shoes from getting stolen in the first place. After the ceremony, Lachlan will have to pay off the girls with gifts of money and jewelery in order to get his shoes back. The whole thing is lots of fun and entertaining.

Kanya Agamana –Arrival of the Bride

An antarpat, a veil of white cloth, is held in front of Lachlan to prevent him from seeing Preethi. This signifies their separate identities prior to the union. Preethi is escorted to the mandap (wedding canopy) by her maternal uncle, Severus Snape. During Preethi's entrance auspicious music is played (usually nada-svaram).

Sumuhoortham

At the astrologically determined moment Preethi and Lachlan place a ball of ground cumin seeds and brown sugar on each other's head. The slightly bitter cumin and the sweet sugar when ground together turn into an inseparable mixture indicating that Preethi and Lachlan are to be inseparable through life's bitter and sweet times. The screen between them is removed signifying that the two separate individuals are united in marriage.

Raksha Bandhan

Raksha literally means protection. As the bride and groom embark upon the second stage of life's journey, Grahasta, that of the householder's, protective bands are tied on their wrists.

Kanya Daan –Giving away of the Bride

Preethi and Lachlan are united by the symbolic action of tying the matrimonial knot by a member of the family or by the Brahmin (The Priest). Lucius will ask Lachlan to treat Preethi as an equal partner throughout their lives. Preethi's parents then give her away to Lachlan through a symbolic gesture of holy water flowing from their hands to Preethi's hands into Lachlan's hands. A varmala, a ritualistic hand woven cotton thread, is placed around the neck of Preethi and Lachlan by her parents. This symbolizes unity and protection from evil.

Hasta Melap –Joining of the Hands

While the priest chants holy verses, Preethi's right hand is placed on Lachlan's right hand by her parents. According to Hindu tradition, when a man takes a woman's hand, he makes a life long commitment to her.

Gannath Bandhan

Preethi and Lachlan are joined together with a white piece of cloth. One end is tied to Preethi's sari and the other is placed on Lachlan's right shoulder, thus signifying a holy unification between Preethi and Lachlan.

Mangal Fera –Circling the holy Fire

Preethi and Lachlan walk around the holy fire four times representing Dharma (religion), Artha (wealth), Kama (love and family), and Moksha (salvation). Each walk is started by Preethi's brothers who fill their palms with rice as a symbol of good wishes and love. Lachlan leads the first three paths (Pradakshina) and Preethi leads the fourth and most important path. During the fourth circle, Preethi and Lachlan race to sit down, and the one who sits first is said to be the ruler of the household.

Maangalya Aasirvaadam

The Mangalasuthram (the auspicious thread symbolizing the bond of marriage) is passed around to the guests for them to bless it by Severus Snape.

Maangalya Dharanam / Sindoor Dhan

Lachlan ties the mangalasuthram around Preethi's neck. The 3 knots signify the three thrimoorthis: Lord Brahma (the creator), Lord Vishnu (the preserver), and Lord Shiva (the destroyer). Preethi and Lachlan exchange their wedding rings. Lachlan then applies sindoor, a special red powder in the parted portion of Preethi's hair. This symbolizes that they are now married.

Talambraalu

Preethi and Lachlan shower turmeric colored rice on each other desiring happiness, joy, and contentment.

Saptapadi –Seven Vows

Preethi and Lachlan exchange vows by walking together on piles of rice and betal nut (sopari). These vows signify the guiding principles of married life.

Arundathi Darshanam

The priest takes the couple outside to show them the star of Arundathi, the role model for women, and the couple seeks her blessings.

Akhand Sobhaghyavati

Married women from both sides of the family come together to whisper advice to the bride's ear and wish Preethi and Lachlan a long and happy married life together.

Mangala Harathi

The ceremony concludes with harathi (camphor light). The mangala harathi signifies the successful completion of the ceremony and wishes the couple harmony and prosperity.

Aashiwaad

The newlyweds pay their respects to God. At the same time, their parents, grandparents, and elders in the family shower their blessings on Preethi and Lachlan for health, strength, wisdom, prosperity, and longevity.

Vidai

Preethi now leaves her parent's home to build a new life with Lachlan. She leaves with tears of joy and sorrow.

Reception

A Wedding Reception Ceremony is one of the substantial Post-wedding rituals in India. It is nothing but a party held after the marriage ceremony is completed, in order to introduce the bride to the relatives and friends.

After their Indian Wedding, Lachlan and Preethi decided to go on their Honeymoon. They chose to go to a Caribbean Sandals Resort. They chose Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa. The average price per room per night at the Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and Spa is $828. The day that Lachlan and Preethi checked into their Honeymoon Suite they found champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for them in their suite of rooms. With 12 resorts in the Caribbean, Sandals has become a trend with honeymoon vacations. Couples love Sandals for many reasons.

He leaned down and kissed her. Preethi moaned. Causing a fresh gush of wetness to flood through her. Lachlan positioned himself over her, the tip of his cock at her entrance. Their eyes locked. Preethi just nodded. In one thrust, he was buried to the hilt inside her. Slowly, he began thrusting in and out of her. Her legs wrapped around his waist and her arms around his neck. She leaned her head up and began to kiss, suck, nip and lick along his neck and shoulders, causing shivers to ripple through him.

"God woman. You're driving me crazy." He whispered.

"Good." She giggled.

He began thrusting harder and faster. Preethi easily matched his pace. Lachlan rolled them over so that she was now on top. Without missing a beat, Preethi continued to move.

"That's it Preethi. Ohhhhh. So good." He sighed.

"You're so deep Lachlan. It feels so good." She moaned.

They began moving harder and faster. Both reaching their peak.

"Make me come Lachlan. Please." She begged.

He rolled them over and began pounding into her. Preethi's cries of ecstasy ringing in his ears.

"Lachlan! Yes!" She cried as her body locked up around him.

"Preethi! Oh god yes!" He roared as his seed spilled deep into her womb.

They fell to the bed holding each other as they came down from their sexual high. Slowly, he withdrew from her. She waved her hand and the sheets and their bodies were clean. He pulled her against him and held her tight.

"I love you Preethi." He said.

"I love you too Lachlan." She replied.

He kissed her temple. Slowly the couple drifted off to sleep. Both feeling at peace in each other's arms.

A Marauder's Death

A Marauder's Death calls
Us together
To celebrate a life lived
As brother, uncle, friend
Lived well
Though you left us Padfoot
Far too soon Uncle Sirius
You touched and shaped each one of us
With love

Candles lit the walls of the once esteemed house of Black. It had finally happened the day he had been dreading. Ever since the day Sirius had been killed he had never gotten a chance to say good bye, it still haunted his memory from day in and out. He really didn't want to come, but he knew it was his duty. Sirius was his only living relative and now he was truly alone, or so that was what he thought as he sat alone in another room. He couldn't bear to say anything to anyone around. It was too depressing for him. He grieved alone and shunned everyone else except Remus and Tonks away. As far as he was concerned he was alone again and alone he would stay. He tried not to cry, not to show off any sign of emotion that he was upset, but as the minutes went by it grew harder and harder not to stray away from his mask of being strong. As he hid behind it a tear slipped from his eye and fell onto his hand. He wiped it away after moving his glasses and placed his glasses down. No one seemed to know where Harry had gone off too, but they figured he would be the most upset over his death and he probably was. There was nothing to console him this time.

That was until she entered the building.

Everyone seemed to be else ware in another room talking softly and grieving for Sirius, but the woman seemed calm and motivated. She wore a veil over her face. Only her hazel colored eyes showed. Her clothing was unique and certainly not dressed for a lamented time such as this. She wore blue robes with pink clothing underneath it. The robes were accented in gold and trimmed with delicate embroidery of the finest and most beautiful fashion. It was almost in an Indian-Chinese fashion the way that the dress was embroidered. Her long hair was hardly seen with it being covered from the veil. She looked up at the clock. She only had five hours before she was to go back to Malfoy Manor. She nodded to herself knowing this day would have come sooner or later and she was glad it came soon. She could no longer keep the secret for she could no longer be this way anymore and have to hide beneath the veil that she wore on her face. She slowly started moving up the stairs to where Severus had said that Harry was at knowing that he would not be joining the other mourners. She slowly made her way down the halls avoiding any traps or surprises that may have been hidden in the old walls when she came across Harry.

It brought a frown to her face, a rather sad expression to see him like that. He looked as though he had been crying the whole day from what it sounded like. She took a few silent steps in before Harry sat up. "Don't come any further please, I said that I wanted to be alone." she froze, not sure of what to say to disarm him. She sighed. "Harry, I need to talk to you." She said in a soft and musical British accent. He turned around, not recognizing who the voice was. "Who are you?" he asked. She shook her head. "Oh Harry, it's been long, too long since we have seen each other and I do apologize it's been my own fault." She removed her veil to expose her long black curls. Harry looked up to gaze at her. "Who…?" she shook her head. "It's a long story, Harry but I can't hold it in anymore. It's been a secret for the longest time. Harry I am your aunt." She said. Harry shook his head. "You…you can't be." He said. She smiled. "And why not? You don't even know who I am. My name is Sapna Jessica Aishwarya Celestina Potter." She replied with delicate hazel eyes in concern. Harry nodded slowly and said, "You can't be my aunt." She shook her head. "Harry I am your aunt and Albus is your great grandfather." She walked over and placed her hands on his shoulders. "I know that you're confused, Harry; but I want you to know that you're not alone. You still have friends and family still here with you. Please don't alienate yourself in this time because we are all here for you." "Remember Harry that you are not the only one who misses Sirius because we all miss him and loved him." She said with a growing smile. Harry thought for a moment and nodded slowly. Harry said, "If you don't mind I would like some more time to myself. I need to think about all of this, Aunt Sapna." She nodded and cried while hugging him. "I understand that Harry. It is a lot to take in when you though that you were all alone after Siri's death." She spoke patting his back before exiting the room. She placed her back against the door and looked at the veil in her hand. She was glad to have finally gotten that off of her chest. It had been a secret that she wasn't sure how much longer she was going to be able to keep it. She now knew that he knew and perhaps in time they would be able to be there for each other and she would be able to support him as an aunt should.

My Heart Will Go On

Every night in my dreams
I see you. I feel you.
That is how I know you go on.

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never go till we're one

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

There is some love that will not
go away

You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Missing You

We miss your woof of a bark

Your eternal vigor

Your valiant bravado

We miss your incessant plotting

Although we weep not for long

since you are someplace that you fit in

with James fantasizing

that once again

the Loyal Marauders will jaunt once more.

Chapter 8: Harry's secret family

Sapna slowly started moving down the stairs to where Severus and other Order members were sitting. When Severus sees her he gives her a big hug and says, "How is my darling sister doing today?" She says, "I am doing fine because I finally told our nephew that I am his aunt." He said that he needed some time to get used to the news that he is not alone in this world. "Sev, I really miss Siri, Lily, and James." "I know Sapna, I miss them too and I hate making our nephew think that I hated them when James is our brother." Little did they know that when they were talking about this their nephew had come down the stairs and heard every word that they said, "WHAT THE H***, HOW IS SEVERUS SNAPE MY UNCLE?" "I'm sorry but Severus is your uncle and I'll tell you how if you please sit down with us right now." "Okay, Aunt Sapna I'm ready to hear the story but I am hungry so can we please eat something?" "Yes, Harry we can eat something, in fact, I'm glad that you asked because I am starving too and I'm pregnant." Sapna asked, "Pinky, can you please get some lunch for us three?" Pinky said "Yes, Mistress Sapna." Harry asked, "Aunt Sapna, did you say that you are pregnant?" "Yes, Harry I'm pregnant but first lets eat and I'll tell the story." Pinky then appeared with their lunch: Roast beef sandwiches with horseradish sauce. After they finished eating, they sat down in the parlor of Grimmauld Place and Sapna told the story:

"Once upon a time there was a handsome wizard named Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore who married an Indian princess named Sapna Damini Patil-Prince. They had four children: two boys and two girls. Their eldest daughter was named Eileen Sapna Prince Dumbledore Snape Potter and eldest son was named Anthony Prashant Dumbledore. Their youngest two children were named Deepti Whitney Dumbledore Mckinnon and Shaan Bastien Dumbledore. Eileen and her Hogwarts sweetheart Charlus Potter decided to get handfasted for a year. Eileen gave birth to her eldest children Sapna Jessica Aishwarya Celestine Potter and Sofia Jahnavi Alexandra Chandana Potter on December 24th, 1954. Eileen Sapna Prince Dumbledore met and married a Muggle man whose name was Tobias Snape. Within two years of their marriage, she had already given him two sons. His sons were Severus Tarun Snape and Evan Dev Snape. One year after Evan was born Tobias cheated on Eileen and his whore gave him three daughters. The three daughters were Jennifer Snape Flint, Maria Snape Zabani and Jackie Snape Wood. Tobias started getting drunk and violent so Eileen decided to go home to her parents for a while. She divorced her husband on the grounds of adultery and left. Eileen never knew about her ex-husbands three illegitimate daughters. She went to a house party at her best friend and cousin Jessica Dumbledore's estate where she met her soul mate Charlus Potter. Charlus had just lost his wife Dorea Black from cancer and he had a son named James Charlus Potter. Charlus and Dorea also had two daughters named Sapphire Dorea Potter and Pearl Violetta Potter. Charlus and Eileen had an affair while at the party and decided to get married. They find out they were pregnant the day after their wedding. Nine months later on December 24th, 1960 Shreya Ebony Aruna Celia Potter, Ethan Sameer Potter and Shriya Emerald Aditi Celeste Potter were born. Shriya married into the Indian Pureblood Shah family and Shreya married into the Indian Pureblood Patil family. Throughout her childhood her parents had many more kids together named Joshua Manan Potter, Deepa Jane Potter Greengrass, Diya Jade Potter Goyle, Malini Jenna Potter Crabbe, Jeanine Maya Potter Prewitt, and Jeffrey Mithun Potter. When I was 10, Eileen was found murdered by Tobias Snape and I raised my younger siblings. I also became the thread that kept James and Severus from fighting. When I was 11, I started school at Hogwarts and I was in Gryffindor my first two years. I was in Slytherin my second three years, and in Ravenclaw my last two years. During my years at Hogwarts, my father remarried for the third and last time. This time he married a Muggle woman who was a part of the British Royal family. Her name was Princess Marie Christine Anna Agnes Hedwig Ida von Reibnitz and it was her third marriage, too. She gave birth to Christina Jacqueline Potter Diggory, Alicia Ida Potter Davies, and Marie June Potter Krum. When I turned 14, both my father and my stepmother were killed by Tom Marvolo Riddle. I took care of all of my younger siblings and kept everyone in the family together." "I'm sorry but Harry can we take a break please." Sapna cries and runs away. "Uncle Severus, why did Aunt Sapna start crying?" Harry asks. Severus says, "I'm sorry, Harry but it's not my story to tell you." About ten minutes later, Sapna returns with Viktor Krum and a girl whose name was Preethi Victoria Patil. "Harry, Viktor and Preethi are here because the next part of this story is their birth." "A month after our parents were murdered, Tom Marvolo Riddle struck again but this time he didn't kill anyone he actually raped someone. He raped me and got me pregnant at the age of 14. I didn't believe in abortion so I decided to keep the babies and when they were born I named them Viktor Prashant Krum and Preethi Victoria Patil. I believed that I was going to raise Viktor all by myself but little did I know that I was going to fall in love with Fabian Prewitt. When I was 15, I married Fabian and we had a happy life until he died two years later. We had one daughter Penelope Prewitt Clearwater Romanov and one son Fabian Prewitt Jr. When I was 17, I got remarried and his name is Lucius Abraxas Malfoy. We have had six children together and I am now pregnant with our seventh child. Our children's names are Draco Raj Lucius Malfoy, Desiree Sofia Jahnavi Malfoy, Adam Gopal Scorpius Malfoy, Jessica Aditi Celia Malfoy, Lucian Chirag Darius Malfoy, and Sonia Damini Jade Malfoy. All six of our children are three groups of twins. Draco and Desiree are both your age but Desiree goes to Beauxbatons. Adam and Jessica are starting school this coming school year at Hogwarts and Salem School for Witches. Lucian and Sonia are four years old but are taking magic classes. I know that you believe that Lucius is a Death Eater but he is not loyal to nor ever has been loyal to Tom Marvolo Riddle." "Thanks for listening to my story about my life and our family, Harry." "I love you but I've got to go home and eat dinner with my family." "I'll be back tomorrow afternoon but Severus will stay with you." "Aunt Sapna, thanks for telling me this story. I know it was hard to tell me all about this tragedy. I love you and would like to get to know my family better. Goodbye and have a good night." "Harry, you're welcome and I would love to have you at Malfoy Manor for dinner or lunch one day. Goodbye and sweet dreams, my darling nephew."

You Raise Me Up

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

There is no life - no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

Chapter 9: Tragedy and Love

Harry Potter was downstairs talking with his uncle Severus Snape when Severus's arm started burning. He could see that his uncle was rubbing his left arm and was in a lot of pain.

"I'am sorry Harry but I have to go now because Tom is calling me." Severus says.

"Take care of yourself, Uncle Severus." "I don't want to lose you when I've finally found you." Harry says after hugging his uncle goodbye.

Ron comes downstairs to hang out with Harry and they talk about what he found out earlier in the evening.

"So, Harry I heard that Aunt Sapna was here?" Ron asks.

"Yes, Ron she was here and she told me about my family." Harry says. "Ron, how is she your aunt?" Harry asks.

"Well, you know her first husband was Fabian Prewitt and he was one of my mom's older brothers." Ron says.

"Oh, that is so cool because that means that we are cousins." Harry says.

"Yes, it is cool but you know that I think of you as my sixth brother." Ron says.

"Thanks for always being there for me, Ron." "You are the best friend that I could have ever had." Harry says.

"Thanks, Harry." "I'll be back after getting some dessert."

A few minutes after Ron goes into the kitchen for dessert, Albus comes into Number Twelve Grimmauld Place and asks after Severus.

"Hello, Harry." Albus says.

"Hello, Great-Grandfather Albus." Harry says.

"So, Sapna finally told you." "That's really good." Albus says.

"Yes, Aunt Sapna told me about our family." Harry says.

"Did Severus come here?" Albus asks.

"Yes, Uncle Severus was here until ten minutes ago when he was summoned by Tom." Harry says.

While they're talking in the front parlor, they hear Nymphadora Tonks and Hestia Jones, bringing in someone who was crying. They walk out of the parlor and what they saw shocked them. Hermione Granger aka Hermione Lucinda Jane Dolohov was sobbing and she had blood all over her dress. Hestia Jones and Nymphadora Tonks were holding two newborn babies. The newborn babies were Hermione's baby siblings Lila Jane Dolohov and Alan Jack Dolohov. Hermione's parents were Lucinda Malfoy and Alexander Dolohov. They had just been killed by Peter Pettigrew, Bellatrix Black Lestrange, and Rodolphus Lestrange. Hermione had been crucioed for one minute but was otherwise unhurt.

"Mia, what happened?" Harry and Ron ask.

"My parents were killed by Peter Pettigrew, Bellatrix Black Lestrange and Rodolphus Lestrange." Hermione says while sobbing.

"We're so sorry, Mia." "Your parents were awesome and so kind." Harry and Ron say.

"I'm so sorry for your loss, Miss Dolohov." "Lucinda and Alexander will be missed." Albus says.

"Mia, why did Albus call you Miss Dolohov?" Harry and Ron ask.

"Harry and Ron, my name is not Miss Granger because my parents were purebloods with the name of Dolohov." "Yes, my grandfather was the one that cursed me at the Department of Mysteries and his associates killed my parents tonight." Hermione says.

"Why did you never tell us who you really were, Mia?" Harry and Ron ask.

"I could not tell people who I really was because my parents were asked to be Death Eaters but turned Tom Riddle down." Hermione says.

"Hestia, have Sapna and Lucius been notified about the Dolohovs' tragic deaths?" Albus asks.

Meanwhile at Malfoy Manor:

The Malfoy's had just finished having dinner together as a family when Lucius got a summons from Tom Riddle. Lucius kissed everyone goodnight and left to see what Tom wanted. After Lucius left, Sapna left Draco and Desiree in charge of the children while she was called by Hestia Jones. Hestia called Sapna for doing her duties as the Queen of the British Wizarding World. Sapna went and the Aurors came to pick up the Death Eaters. The Aurors gave the Death Eaters to the Queen. She had her soldiers interrogate them with Veritaserum. She first had three Death Eaters executed as traitors to the Wizarding World. The three Death Eaters who were executed by the Queen of the English Wizarding World for being traitors to the Wizarding World were Bellatrix Black Lestrange, Rodolphus Lestrange, and Peter Pettigrew. After having these three Death Eaters executed, her Aurors brought four more Death Eaters who needed to be executed by Queen Sapna. The second batch of Death Eaters consisted of Nott, Travers, Avery, and Antonin Dolohov, Sr. She had her soldiers interrogate them with Veritaserum and after that had them executed as Traitors to the Wizarding World. After having these three Death Eaters executed, her Aurors brought four more Death Eaters who needed to be executed by Queen Sapna. The four Death Eaters were Delores Umridge, Cornelius Fudge, Madam Edgecombe, and Avery Senior. She had her soldiers interrogate them with Veritaserum and after that had them executed as Traitors to the Wizarding World. She then wrote a pardon for all crimes that were supposedly committed by Sirius Black. She took her pardon and all the confessions to the Ministry. The Ministry approved of everything she had done. She had all the Ministry employees checked for Dark Marks. She found some and had them executed for being traitors or she checked for Imperioused people who had Dark Marks. She took the Imperious Curse off of those people and had them go back to Tom as her spies. She told them that there were many Death Eaters who were loyal to her and she told them to go help them spy. All of the Imperioused Death Eaters went back to Tom except for Antonin Dolohov, Jr. Antonin was under shock that he had been Imperioused and forced to watch his parents die. After that she finally decided she had to go to Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place and console her neice Mia. She took Antonin with her so he could console his sister and tell her that he was under the Imperious Curse.

Back at Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place:

"Hestia, doesn't have to tell either of us about Lucinda and Alex's deaths." Sapna and Lucius walk into the house with Severus. Antonin Dolohov and Rabastan Lestrange came into the house with Severus.

Seeing Severus, Mia runs into his arms and kisses him on the lips.

"Mia, what happened?" Severus asked. "How did Lucinda and Alex die?"

"I had just fed the twins dinner of spaghetti and meatballs. After feeding the twins', I took them upstairs and tucked them in their cribs after singing lullabies to them." Mia says.

" I sang Aunt Sapna's favorite lullaby: So Ja Chanda." Mia says.

So Ja Chanda

So Ja Chanda, Raja So Ja

Chal Sapnon Mein Chal

Neend Ki Pariyaan Pahenke Aayi

Pairon Mein Paayal

Tujhko Apne Naram Paron Par Lekar Jaayengi

Sone Ka Ek Des Hai Jiski Sair Karaayengi

Dharti Se Kuch Door Kahin Saat Samandar Paar

Aakaashon Ke Beech Hai Sapnon Ka Sansaar

Voh Zameen Hai Pyaar Ki, Vahan Sirf Pyaar Hai

Mere Chaand Jaa Vahan Tera Intezaar Hai

So Ja Chanda, Raja So Ja

Chal Sapnon Mein Chal

Neend Ki Pariyaan Pahenke Aayi

Pairon Mein Paayal

Jin Pariyon Ke Husn Par Jannat Ho Qurbaan

Un Pariyon Ke Des Mein Hoga Tu Mehmaan

Hai Nayi Kahaaniyaan Jo Tujhe Sunaayengi

Tere Saath Naachengi, Tere Saath Gaayengi

So Ja Chanda, Raja So Ja

Chal Sapnon Mein Chal

Neend Ki Pariyaan Pahenke Aayi

Pairon Mein Paayal

Tujhko Apne Naram Paron Par Lekar Jaayengi

Sone Ka Ek Des Hai Jiski Sair Karaayengi

"Alexei washed the dishes so that Mom and Dad could relax. After Alexi washed the dishes, he went to his room upstairs so he could get ready for his sleepover at Sajan's house the next night. We had just sat down to watch TV when suddenly there were four Death Eaters in front of us. Before we could do anything mum, dad, and I were bound. Dad and I were forced to watch as they as they beat and raped mum." Mia says while crying.

"Then they did the same thing to dad. They then made me watch as the decapitated and gutted my parents. Then, for some reason they removed their masks. It was Bellatrix Black Lestrange, Rodolphus Lestrange, and Peter Pettigrew. The fourth Death Eater was my brother Antonin but it seemed like he was under the Imperious Curse. Then Bellatrix Black Lestrange grabbed my hair and said, "You're precious Order and Harry Potter are next." Mia says being hugged by Sapna.

"Crucio!" Bellatrix Black Lestrange hissed venomously as she cast the Unforgivable at me. Then everything went black. I guess she knocked me out." Hermione explained as the tears fell from her eyes.

Ten minutes after the Malfoy's came to Headquarters, Remus Lupin and Kingsley Shacklebolt were bringing a second batch of survivors of tonight's Death Eater attacks. The Death Eaters that killed Shreya and Sagar Patil were Travers, Avery, and Antonin Dolohov, Sr. These survivors were kids of Shreya Ebony Aruna Celia Potter Patil and Sagar Arnav Patil. They were Parvati Bianca Patil, Sajan Liam Patil, and Padma Kaya Patil. Parvati and Padma were Hogwarts students that were in the same year as the Golden Trio but Sajan Arya Patil was starting at Hogwarts this year. Sajan Liam Patil has revolutionary looks, macho body, dimples, and a nice character. He has black hair, is 5' 1"tall, sea-green eyes. They had an adopted sister who was actually their aunt Sapna's daughter Preethi Victoria Patil.

Preethi Victoria Patil was born on February 14th, 1969 and was a Hogwarts student from 1980 to 1988. She has exotic looks because she was born to a mother who was twenty-five percent Indian and seventy-five percent Saxon but her father was a full blooded Caucasian. She has black hair with henna highlights, blue-green eyes; red lips, and is 5'5" tall. She also has a small nose and beautiful white teeth. She loves to sing, dance, read, watch television and movies, hang out with family, and chill with friends. She is married to Lachlan Alistair Macmillian and is expecting her first child.

Preethi was actually at Headquarters helping her husband Lachlan Alistair Macmillian, the older brother of Ernie Macmillian, with Order of the Phoenix business.

Lachlan has a deep tan, shoulder-length blonde hair, smoldering green eyes, is 6' 1" tall, has a deep husky voice, is a gentle man even though he is very muscular, is very loyal, brave, loving, noble, brooding, loves kilts and is the eldest of five children. Lachlan was born on February 14th, 1966 and was a Hogwarts student from 1977 to 1984. Lachlan and Preethi met at Hogwarts before becoming Hogwarts Sweethearts.

"What happened Parvati and Padma?" Harry and Ron ask.

"Our parents were killed by Travers, Avery, and Antonin Dolohov, Sr." Padma and Parvati say while sobbing.

"Shreya, why did you have to die?" Sapna says while sobbing. "Isn't it enough that I already lost Sapphire, James, and Sofia?"

"Great-grandfather Albus, is Preethi Didi here?" Parvati asks.

"Yes, she is here." Albus says before he leaves the room to go call Preethi and Lachlan.

"Mia, is Alexei here?" Sajan asks.

"Sajan, Alexei is here." Mia says.

Alexei and Sajan are best friends. They are both starting Hogwarts this year. They run to each other and finally break down sobbing in each other's arms.

"How did Shreya and Sagar die?" Sapna asks.

"Sajan washed the dishes so that Mom and Dad could relax. After he washed the dishes, he went to his room upstairs so he could get ready for Alexei coming to his house the next night for a sleep over. We had just sat down to watch TV when suddenly there were four Death Eaters in front of us. Before we could do anything mum, dad, Parvati, and I were bound. Dad, Parvati and I were forced to watch as they as they beat and raped mum." Padma says while crying.

"Then they did the same thing to dad. They then made Parvati and I watch as the decapitated and gutted our parents. Then, for some reason they removed their masks. It was Nott, Travers, Avery, and Antonin Dolohov, Sr. Then Nott grabbed my hair and said, "You're precious Order and Harry Potter are next." Padma says being hugged by Sapna.

"Crucio!" Nott hissed venomously as he cast the Unforgivable at Parvati and I. Then everything went black. I guess he knocked us out." They explained as the tears fell from their eyes.

Goodbye's The Saddest Word

Mamma
You gave life to me
Turned a baby into a lady

Mamma
All you had to offer
Was the promise of a lifetime of love

Now I know
There is no other
Love like a mother's love for her child

And I know
A love so complete
Someday must leave
Must say goodbye

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

Mamma
You gave love to me
Turned a young one into a woman

Mamma
All I ever needed
Was a guarantee of you loving me

'Cause I know
There is no other
Love like a mother's love for her child

And it hurts so
That something so strong
Someday will be gone, must say goodbye

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

But the love you gave me will always live
You'll always be there every time I fall
You are to me the greatest love of all
You take my weakness and you make me strong
And I will always love you 'til forever comes

And when you need me
I'll be there for you always
I'll be there your whole life through
I'll be there this I promise you, Mamma

Mamma, I'll be
I'll be your beacon through the darkest nights
I'll be the wings that guide your broken flight
I'll be your shelter through the raging storm
And I will love you 'till forever comes

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

'Till we meet again...
Until then.
Goodbye

Sorcha Macmillian, Màiri Macmillian, Ernie Macmillian, and Niall Macmillian come into the Order of the Phoenix after seeing their parents be killed by the Death Eaters Delores Umridge, Cornelius Fudge, Madam Edgecombe, and Avery Senior. They were brought into Grimmauld Place by their brother and sister-in-law Lachlan and Preethi Macmillian. After hearing about the tragedy, their godparents come to console the boys until their older brother who is their new guardian arrives. Sorcha and Màiri were the two daughters of Braden and Catrìona Macmillian. After lunch that day, they went shopping with their godparents Ewan and Fiona MacGregor. The reason that Lachlan and Preethi weren't able to come as soon as they heard about the deaths of Braden and Catrìona Macmillian is because Preethi's adoptive sisters and brother lost their own parents just an hour earlier.

"What happened Ernie?" Harry, Ron, Hermione, Parvati, and Padma ask.

"Our parents were killed by Delores Umridge, Cornelius Fudge, Madam Edgecombe, and Avery Senior." Ernie says while sobbing.

"How did Braden and Catrìona die?" Sapna asks.

"Niall washed the dishes so that Mom and Dad could relax. After he washed the dishes, he went to his room upstairs so he could get ready for bed. Sorcha and Màiri were out shopping with our godparents Ewan and Fiona MacGregor. We had just sat down to watch TV when suddenly there were four Death Eaters in front of us. Before we could do anything mum, dad, and I were bound. Dad and I were forced to watch as they as they beat and raped mum." Ernie says while crying.

"Then they did the same thing to dad. They then made me watch as the decapitated and gutted our parents. Then, for some reason they removed their masks. It was Delores Umridge, Cornelius Fudge, Madam Edgecombe, and Avery Senior. Then Avery grabbed my hair and said, "You're precious Order and Harry Potter are next." Ernie says being hugged by Lachlan.

"Crucio!" Avery hissed venomously as he cast the Unforgivable at me. Then everything went black. I guess he knocked me out." He explained as the tears fell from his eyes.

Into The West

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come to journey's end

Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away

Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?

Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come
To carry you home

Dawn will turn to silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time

Don't say
We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?

Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come
To carry you home

And dawn will turn to silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West

If I had only known

If I had only known
It was the last walk in the rain
Id keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand
Like a life line to my heart
Underneath the thunder wed be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain

If I had only known
Id never hear your voice again
Id memorize each thing you ever said
And on those lonely nights
I could think of them once more
Keep your words alive inside my head
If I had only known
Id never hear your voice again

You were the treasure in my hand
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware I foolishly believed
That you would always be there
But then there came a day
And I turned my head and you slipped away

If I had only known
It was my last night by your side
Id pray a miracle would stop the dawn
And when you'd smile at me
I would look into your eyes
And make sure you know my love
For you goes on and on
If I had only known
If I had only known
The love I would've shown
If I had only known

Candle in the Wind

Goodbye Englands Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
You called out to our country
And you whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And the stars spell out your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along Englands greenest hills
Your candles burned out long before
Your legend never will

Loveliness we've lost
These empty days without your smile
This torch well always carry
For our nations golden child
And even though we try
The truth brings us to tears
All our words cannot express
The joy you brought us through the years

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along Englands greenest hills
Your candles burned our long before
Your legend never will

Goodbye Englands Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
Goodbye Englands Rose
From a country lost without your soul
Wholl miss the wings of your compassion
More than you'll ever know

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And you footsteps will always fall here
Along Englands greenest hills
Your candles burned out long before
Your legend never will

"Severus? I'm afraid you're going to have to tell me what to do," she whispered helplessly. "I've never done this at all." He looked at her silently for a moment, as if he was absorbing her acceptance of him, and then began stroking her lightly with the tips of his fingers. She concentrated on where he was touching her and noting how the different kinds of strokes felt for a while, but soon gave herself up to the pleasure of his explorations. Tentatively she began to tell him what she liked best, and when he intensified those attentions she began to understand why he had suggested moans and whimpers rather than means of communication where it was necessary to be coherent. She heard him take a deep breath and then suddenly felt his mouth on her neck, kissing and licking her with his slightly rough tongue. She gasped at the sudden assault, then giggled and sighed, and then gasped again when he nipped lightly at her earlobe. When he had reduced her to speechlessness once again, he pulled away from her and smiled with satisfaction. Then his face took on a rather predatory look that made her shiver as he lowered his mouth to one of her breasts. Soon he was eliciting pleading little moans that made him chuckle against her and her hips began to grind a little involuntarily. He took advantage of her movement to nudge his knees between her legs, pressing one of them up against the warm junction of her thighs, and she was embarrassed to feel a slippery wetness against his skin. Was that supposed to happen? But his mouth was her other breast now, and she lost any ability to feel embarrassed as she moaned and gasped out her pleasure. Now his mouth had moved between her breasts and began to kiss a line down across her abdomen, as his hands stroked her sides soothingly. He'd moved his body down as well, and suddenly his mouth was... good heavens! Hermione felt a shock of pleasure and a rush of wetness.

"Severus... You don't have to... You shouldn't... Oh!"

He looked up at her, concerned, absently licking at the corner of his lip. "Have I hurt you?"

"No, not at all," she reassured him, gasping for breath. "But isn't that a little... icky?"

"Not to me. I enjoy it. But if you really find it unpleasant or disturbing, I shall stop and try something else. So you must tell me honestly, do you like it?"

She thought for a moment and then drew a deep breath. Courage. The courage to be honest. "Yes, Severus," she said very softly. "It's sort of embarrassing, but I liked it a lot. Keep doing it. Please"

"All right. I won't stop now, even if you cry out, unless you say stop, so hold on."

And he didn't stop, she did hold on, her fingers clutching his shoulders, and eventually she cried out, begging him for she knew not what, and then finally she fell apart completely, moaning and gasping, and calling his name to his obvious satisfaction. And when she had quieted, he turned her on her side, lay beside her, and held her very tightly for a while.

"That was amazing. I had no idea," she whispered.

He smiled. "You are going to be a wonderful lover, Hermione. I am enjoying this even more than I had hoped. You see, I had no idea, either." He kissed her lightly on the lips. "Are you ready to go on?"

"Yes, please," she gasped, still a little breathless.

She found herself both a little frightened and rather eager, and nodded at him shyly. He knelt again between her legs and she smiled at him, nervously keeping her eyes on his face and away from the swollen thing that she had felt against her when he held her.

"That's my brave girl. But first let me worship you a little more."

He began stroking and kissing her thighs again. This time, he caressed his way up her body, and as he reached her face, supporting himself on his elbows, he kissed her very gently on the mouth, barely brushing her lips at first, then licking and kissing them lightly, then with more pressure. She tasted the salty taste of herself again, as she kissed him back, and then she gasped and saw stars when his tongue penetrated her mouth. He pulled away slightly and smiled slightly at her responsiveness and her arms came around him to pull him back to her and he chuckled.

"Greedy, aren't you, Hermione?" he said in that rough voice that made her shudder. He resumed kissing her thoroughly as he positioned himself to thrust into her. But at the last moment, he controlled himself and entered more cautiously instead, with agonizingly slowness. After they had moved together very gently for a while, he lifted his mouth from hers, looked into her eyes, and saw... adoration. He gasped, hardly believing it possible that anyone could look at him in such a way. He took a deep breath and began moving against her rhythmically, keeping his strokes smooth and controlled. They rocked together silently for a little and then began to move a little faster. Suddenly, Hermione gasped.

"Are you... all right... Hermione?"

"Oh yes, I'm far better than all right, really, and Oh, you're wonderful. I love this. Oh, Severus, You make me feel... This is brilliant.... I had no idea! Oh, wonderful. Oh... oh... oh... Merlin! Good heavens! Something's.... Severus? I think.... Oh! ....OH!"

As she lost control, her eyes wide and amazed, so did he; and his movements became erratic for a few moments. Through the waves of her own pleasure she heard and appreciated his groans, rejoicing in her power to give him such pleasure. After a few moments, he collapsed onto her chest, breathing hard, moaning her name. He lifted himself quickly, apologizing, as she began to fight for breath, and lay on his back beside her, breathing hard. When he had recovered his wits a little, he repositioned the pillows beneath her hips and reached down and pulled the bedclothes over them both.

"Thanks for comforting me!" Hermione says. "I needed this and I needed you."

"Making love is a part of life like death is a part of life." Severus says. "You needed to know that you were still alive and I needed to know that the love of my life is alive."

"I love you, Severus." Mia says.

"I love you, Hermione." Sev says.

And she suited her actions to her words, following his example, and moving her hands and mouth around his body, teasing him here and there, brushing lightly against places that she knew he wanted her to touch. He surrendered himself entirely to her caresses, moaning and gasping in a very pleasing way, and, when he could control his voice, telling her exactly how she was making him feel, what he'd like her to do, and from time to time how much he was looking forward to doing to her what she'd been doing to him, which made her shiver.

She moved on to his most private parts and was soon delighted with her ability to reduce him to a moaning, whimpering, begging jelly. After a while he coaxed her to straddle him. She quickly realized what he wanted, and they both gasped with pleasure. After rocking in a way that she found immensely satisfying for what seemed like forever, she felt the backs of her legs begin to tingle and she involuntarily picked up her pace. He began to raise his hips to meet her, whispering, "Harder, please, harder!" and their joining suddenly turned frantic and almost violent and then abruptly she was lost, writhing and digging her fingernails into his shoulder, and he kept pounding into her and her climax was repeated until his moans and gasps and shouts joined her own, and they rocked together for a while, coming down slowly. And then suddenly she was lying, panting, against him, with her head on his shoulder and her arms clinging to him like a limpet, and he was stroking her hair as he looked down at her with a soft smile, noticing the tears on her face, her gasping breaths, and the happiness and complete trust in her eyes.

"Merlin!" he said, softly. "What have I done to deserve this? The most brilliant, passionate, and loving woman I have ever encountered is not only in my bed, but she is my fiancée. Thank you, Hermione, for convincing me to do this. Everything will be all right. We've done the right thing, and we're going to have a wonderful marriage."

Chapter 10: The Will Reading of Sirius Black

Before going to bed, Harry Potter was in his godfather's room with his uncle Severus Snape. They were talking about the killings that Lord Voldemort had done this week. A few minutes later, Remus Lupin walks upstairs calling Harry's name and they hear him calling so they tell him that they are in Sirius's room. After Remus joined them, they turned the radio on and started reminiscing about Sirius Orion Black aka Padfoot. They were listening to I Will Remember You, Photograph, and Wake Me Up When September Ends.

I Will Remember You

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Remember the good times that we had?
I let them slip away from us when things got bad
How clearly I first saw you smilin' in the sun
Wanna feel your warmth upon me, I wanna be the one

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so tired but I can't sleep
Standin' on the edge of something much too deep
It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, but we can't be heard

But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories

Photograph

Look at this photograph
Everytime I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red
And what the hell is on Joey's head

And this is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we'd ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneaking out

And this is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must have done it half a dozen times

I wonder if it's too late
Should i go back and try to graduate
Life's better now then it was back then
If I was them I wouldn't let me in

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, god, I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

Remember the old arcade
Blew every dollar that we ever made
The cops hated us hangin' out
They say somebody went and burned it down

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we know
We said someday we'd find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

Kim's the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She's had a couple of kids since then
I haven't seen her since god knows when

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, god, I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

I miss that town
I miss the faces
You can't erase
You can't replace it
I miss it now
I can't believe it
So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it

If I could I relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

Look at this photograph
Everytime I do it makes me laugh
Everytime I do it makes me...

Wake Me Up When September Ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when september ends

like my fathers come to pass
seven years has gone so fast
wake me up when september ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when september ends

summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when september ends

ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when september ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when september ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when september ends

like my father's come to pass
twenty years has gone so fast
wake me up when september ends
wake me up when september ends
wake me up when september ends

Remus left the room to talk to Tonks about tomorrow morning's will reading for Sirius at Gringott's. Severus said good night to Harry and reminded him to wake up early so that they all could get ready to go to Sirius's will reading. Harry went to sleep and woke up early the next day to get ready for what he knew was going to be a very emotional day.

"Good Morning, Children." "There are eggs, bacon, sausages, grilled tomatoes, toast, black pudding, and hash browns for breakfast." "There are pumpkin juice, orange juice, tea, and coffee to drink." Molly spoke cheerfully to her children, not wishing to remind them that today was the will reading. Arthur nodded to them and both the children smiled. Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred, George, Ron, Ginny, and Harry uttered good morning. Fleur, Audrey, Jodhaa, Angelina, Alicia, Viktor, Elizaveta, and Aleksander uttered good morning.

"Good Morning, Uncle and Aunt." Penelope said as she took a seat.

"Good Morning, Molly and Arthur." Tonks said while sitting down.

"Are you ready for breakfast to be served, Mistress Weasley?" asked Winky.

"Winky, we are ready for breakfast to be served and thanks for waiting until everyone was in the dining room."

They all sat down and ate breakfast.

"Mother, can you please pass the sausage platter?" Bill asks.

"Here it is, Bill."

"Father, can you please pass the eggs?" Ginny asks.

"Here they are, Ginevra."

"Tonks, can you please pass the bacon?" Charlie asks.

"Here it is, Charlie."

"Viktor, can you please pass the toast?" Hermione asks.

"Here it is, Hermione."

"Everyone, what would you like to drink?" Molly asks.

The boys asked for pumpkin juice. "Here are your pumpkin juices, boys."

Arthur and Viktor asked for coffee. "Here are your coffees, Arthur and Viktor."

The girls and women had tea. "Here are your teas, ladies." Molly decided to have tea, too.

They finished eating breakfast and in groups went off to Diagon Alley. Tonks and Harry were meeting Remus at Gringott's. They entered Diagon Alley and went off to Gringott's. Remus motioned them over towards a door that Remus and the goblin was heading towards on the right side of the bank that seemed to host a series of doors. The goblin showed them through the door and said, "Just walk through the next set of doors and have a seat. The reading will start in a few minutes once the last remaining parties have arrived."

The three of them entered what appeared to be an observation room. The room was fairly small with a few chairs around a rectangular table. One of the walls of the room was made of glass. Harry stood still for awhile watching all the people that were waiting in the next room.

Harry saw that the entire Weasley family was there along with Hermione Dolohov, Professor Snape, Sapna Malfoy, Lucius Malfoy, Professor Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall, Mad-Eye Moody, Kingsley Shackelbolt, Tonks, Hestia Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Tonks, Petunia Dursley, Dudley Dursley and a few other people that he did not recognize. It was at that moment that Harry realized that he forgot something. He asked aloud to nobody in particular, "I thought there was a memorial for Sirius prior to the reading of the will."

Remus answered him while also staring into the same room that Harry was looking at, "There was a change of plans at the last minute due to security concerns. There will be a small gathering later on at headquarters instead of where it was originally planned because we got word that there was a high probability that there was going to be an ambush during the ceremony."

"I see. Why didn't we use the memorial as an excuse to set up a trap for the ambush?"

"We can't really use that as a trap because there would be too many innocent people around along with the fact that we don't know how big of a force that Voldemort will send."

"I don't know if I'm ready for this. If I hear Sirius' will, than he really is gone."

"I know what you mean. We can wait in here for a while longer until the Wizarding attorney shows up to execute the reading."

"How do we know he is really gone? I mean, how do we know what's beyond the veil?"

Remus turned Harry to face him and pulled out two chairs and sat down facing each other with Tonks standing behind Harry. Remus said, "I know that you want to believe that there is a way for him to be alive but there isn't. Nobody returns after crossing the veil. Even if only part of the body falls across the veil than that part of the body is lost forever."

Tonks crouched down behind Harry and wrapped her arms around Harry and whispered in his ear, "It'll be alright."

Harry sighed and was almost immediately interrupted by the door to the main lobby of the bank opening up again. This time a wizard that Harry did not recognized walked into the room. The wizard turned around and said, "I'm Andrew Blake. I'm Mr. Black's attorney. Are you all ready to join everybody else for the reading of the Will?"

Harry blinked a few times sighed, then reluctantly said, "Yes sir."

At that moment Mr. Blake recognized Harry by his scar and stared at him for a few seconds and said, "Please follow me into the next room and we can proceed."

As they opened the door into the room where everybody else was gathered, everybody in the room stopped talking or doing whatever they were doing and looked at who was coming in the room. The room had small chairs lined in rows with a center aisle that was in the middle of the room which led to a small table with a chair at the front of the room. Mr. Blake proceeded to walk to the front of the room and sat behind the table and pulled out some documents and placed them in various stacks on the table.

Tonks walked in first than Harry who was followed in by Remus. Hermione, Ginny, Ron, and Mrs. Weasley were getting ready to rush towards Harry but stopped once Tonks raised her hand to tell them not to approach Harry. Harry was thankful to Tonks for doing what she did because he didn't know if could say anything to them face to face yet.

Everybody sat down and didn't say another word. Harry felt bad for not greeting anybody but all the energy that he possessed earlier seemed to vanish once he made it into Gringott's. A small image of Sirius formed above the silvery surface. Harry suddenly realized that his eyes were prickling.

"Sirius," he whispered.

"Hello, everyone. I'm Sirius Orion Black, and this is my Last Will and Testament, recorded January 12th, 1996." The image paused, presumably skipping the parts not related to the three in the room.

After a moment of utter silence, Mr. Blake stood up and started to read aloud the will. When Mr. Blake begin to speak, Harry didn't pay much attention because it didn't seem important and just a mere formality.

Shortly afterwards, Harry was brought back to reality when Tonks nudged him on the side to get him to pay attention. Harry started to hear Mr. Blake again at some point prior to Sirius' actual will. Mr. Blake continued to read.

I, Sirius Black, of sound mind and body nullify and void all previous wills that are in my name. The following are my wishes for the distribution of the possessions and holdings of the Noble House of Black.

To Remus Lupin, I leave you 10 million galleons. I know that you don't like charity and this in fact is not charity. You've been my friend for a very long time and managed to do certain things that I was unable to fulfill for a very long time which was watch over Harry. I can never thank you enough for what you've done so far and ask that you continue to watch over him. Take the money and have some fun with it. We all know that you need some new robes so now there's no reason for you to be wearing tattered robes. Have fun my friend and never forget that.

To Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, I leave you each 10 million galleons. You've been great friends to Harry and he's always said that with out the two of you than he would've been lost a long time ago. Continue to take care of him and watch out for each other. Ron, never forget that laughter is a great form of medicine. Hermione, keep Harry out of trouble especially since we know that he always gets tangled up in some.

To the Weasley Family, I leave you 30 million galleons. I'm not sure you realize it or not but Harry has always seen you like his family. The amount of love and care that you've given him over the years can not be matched by all the galleons in Gringott's. I thank you all for taking care of him.

To Nymphadora Tonks, my lovely cousin, I leave you 5 million galleons. I hope that you find happiness and manage to trap a certain wolf that we all know you have a thing for. Don't worry, he's too thick to realize anything but never let him go. You should go ahead and make the first move and don't let him use excuses to get out of anything.

There were snickering in the room when Mr. Blake read the part about Tonks.

To Albus Dumbledore, I leave you 50 million galleons. Thirty million galleons is for a group of over aged protectors that I think you know what I mean, ten million is for the school and ten million is for you. I know we have not always agreed on various subjects but I also owe you a great debt of gratitude for protecting Harry all these years. I still believe that he should be told much more than what he is told now and I think you know why.

To Severus Snape, I leave you 25 million galleons. Help Sapna, Lucius, Remus, and Tonks take care of our Prongslet. I'll tell Lily and James that they are missed. I love you, my brother. Thank you for being my third brother of the heart. Hopefully, by now, you have told Harry that you are his uncle and that he is not alone as he thinks he is. Take care of yourself and marry your beloved Hermione.

To Sapna Potter Malfoy, I leave you 50 million galleons. Thank you for being my beloved and beautiful sister of the heart. Hopefully, by now you've told Prongs Jr., that you are his aunt and that he is not alone as he thinks he is. Take care of yourself and your beloved children. Continue to live you're life and I believe that your side of the war will prevail over Moldyshots.

To Ginerva Weasley, I leave you 5 million galleons. I think most of us know of how you are taken by a certain individual. Continue to live your life but just like Tonks, you might have to make the first move. After all, I haven't had the chance to give him the talk yet. Don't ever give up on your dreams.

Ginny blushed as a few people in the room turned to look at her. Harry was wondering who this person could be since Ginny was obviously over him.

To Harry Potter, my godson, I am so sorry that things are turning out the way that they are. I hope that I went down fighting for the light and especially protecting you over all else. Most of your friends along with myself are probably safe in assuming that you are blaming yourself for what happened but don't. This just shows one of your greatest qualities as an individual and as a wizard, which is your heart. Always follow your heart but let your mind guide you. I know you probably don't want or need anything but I want to just make sure so, I will be leaving you everything else that has not been distributed yet. This should be about 500 million galleons along with Grimmauld Place along with the business investments in the muggle world which should be about 200 million pounds which is in addition to all the money in the various muggle banks.

There is something else that I intended to give you upon your seventeenth birthday but I guess I won't be able to. So, I will give it to you now. The instructions are in a letter that will be given to you once the reading of this Will is complete. In summary with the combining of both the Potter and Black family vaults and fortunes, you are one of the richest person in the world both muggle and wizarding.

There is one more thing that I wanted done. Harry, I'm pretty sure right now there are many people gathered in the room that would be more than willing to watch out for you and take care of you. I want to make sure that you're being taken care of by somebody that has the means and opportunity to do so. It's not an easy decision for that I apologize to you but I believe that what ever decision you make that it will be fine with everybody involved. I want you to be happy with my choice of guardian.

After hearing that he had a new guardian, Harry felt like the wind was knocked out of him.

I have chosen Sapna and Lucius to be your guardians.

I guess this is where the Will is going to end. But remember these last words, "Whenever you need me, I'm going to be in your heart. Never give up and always try to have fun."

"This is Padfoot, signing off."
