Chapter 37: Headmaster's Plans
Godric was busy teaching Ash some of the theory behind Charms. It was one of the few theories that he seemed to understand well enough to explain it to his son. The two of them were in the library and they were both as alone as they could get. There were a few seventh years that were working on their N.E.W.T.-level projects. Godric stopped talking and crossed his arms. His mind was trying to focus on something else. He looked at Ash. The boy was staring at him. He wasn't used to his father falling silent when teaching. Godric shook his head.
He gave Ash a smile. "Sorry, my mind was a little distracted." He then shook his head. "Come on, let's go and see if the Charms teacher is free. He might have some time to help you with a bit of the theory. I do understand it, but we know I'm better with Magical Creatures." The boy nodded and stood up. Godric led him out of the library. He did see that a couple of the students were looking at them as they walked out. He kind of wondered if they had realized what he had. That thought caused him to stop in his tracks.
Ash quickly realized that his father wasn't walking next to him. He turned around and looked at him. "Are you okay?" Godric seemed to start when Ash spoke to him. He blinked and shifted his stance. He shook his head and smiled at Ash. He hoped that Flitwick was free. He felt that he had to plan for when people learned that he was Harry Potter. He hated that thought. In fact, he downright wanted to deny it. Yet, he had learned that the lightening-bolt scar on his forehead would eventually reveal the truth to everyone.
He began to walk and ruffled Ash's hair. "Don't worry, I was just thinking of something that I hadn't realized." He led Ash off. He wasn't about to elaborate on what he was talking about. He glanced to the side and saw that Ash was scowling at him. That wasn't the most unusual look for him to see.
The two of them walked in silence as they made their way over to the Charms classroom. Ash stopped in his tracks. It was Godric's turn to stop and look at his son. He frowned at the rigid stance that Ash had taken on. The boy was looking straight ahead at something. Godric followed his son's gaze and saw what had caused the boy to stop. Standing a good distance from them was Severus Snape and Albus Dumbledore. Godric scowled at the sight of the headmaster of Hogwarts. There was something about the man that he didn't like.
Dumbledore walked up with Severus following behind him. The potions master was scowling as well. Godric stepped back and put his arm around Ash's shoulders. He didn't want to let the boy stand on his own against the headmaster of Hogwarts. Dumbledore smiled at Godric with a twinkle in his eyes. "Hello Lord Gryffindor." Godric scowled. He was getting tired of people calling him that. However, the headmaster held up a hand before Godric could say anything. "Please, let me speak first." Godric nodded. He would wait and see what the headmaster was going to say. The man waited a bit before he began to speak. "Lord Gryffindor, I know that you don't wish to join the Order, and I do understand that. However, I have heard from Severus that the Dark Lord is going to come after you. I wish for you to go with Severus to a secure place. I wouldn't normally do this, but I wish for your safety and the safety of the students. They could get hurt." Godric scowled at the man.
Godric crossed his arms and watched Dumbledore. He had an idea of what the man wanted to do. He wanted to get Godric on his side. He thought that protecting Godric was a good way to do that. Godric shook his head. "Headmaster, there's a reason that I know that the students are safe. I may not have been one of the people that opened the school, but I do know the wards. Helga, Rowena, and Salazar made sure that I understood them. If you plan to try and get me to go with what you want by doing such a thing, you've got the wrong man." He then walked off.
He led Ash away. Severus went and followed them. Godric looked at the potions master. Severus looked at him. "How did you figure that the headmaster was attempting to manipulate you?" He seemed a little surprised at Godric's response to the headmaster.
Godric sighed. "It's really quite simple. I don't remember the man beyond my interactions here. The only real memories I have are of you and of a few random ones. He's trying to tell me that I have to be taken out of Hogwarts for my own safety. The truth is that I do know how to defend both Ash and myself. I also know that the Founders made sure that I know everything about these wards. One bit of information is that the wards are kept active by a ward stone. That means that they won't be breeched as long as the castle recognizes the need for the wards to be strong. After all, the castle is somewhat sentient." He walked towards the dungeons. "And, if worst comes to worst, there are escape tunnels built by Salazar Slytherin to get the students out. So, his manipulations only work if I was ignorant. My friends made sure that I wasn't." He then nodded to Severus and went into his rooms with Ash. He knew that he should have continued on to see Flitwick, but there wasn't as much of a point with the headmaster being in the area. He sat Ash down. "Now, let's get back to work." He picked up from where he had left of, which was exactly what he needed to do.
