Chapter 4 Bad Dream
Everything was dark. Harry was being woken by the sound of someone calling his name. His eyes bolted open as the voice became clearer. He gasped when he saw the person standing at his bedside.
"Ginny?" Harry asked.
She was older, but Harry surprisingly didn't think anything of it. Everything came back to him. Their wedding… their kids. Ginny smiled and straightened up. Harry then realized that it had all been a bad dream.
"Harry," Ginny smiled.
He outstretched his hand to touch her face.
"Is this a dream?" Harry asked.
Ginny smiled and took the hand that Harry had on her cheek.
"If it was, would I be able to do this?" she asked.
She leaned Harry back on the pillow and kissed him.
"What's the matter?" Ginny asked.
Harry didn't really know how to react to the kiss.
"I just had a weird dream last night," he said.
"What was it about?" Ginny asked.
Harry sat up as Ginny sat on the bed.
"It was about when we went to the Ministry that year to save Sirius," he said.
Ginny put her hand on Harry's shoulder.
"Oh, Harry. I know it most be hard to think of him," she said.
Harry shook his head. Ginny have him a questionable look.
"No, that's not it. Ginny, you were the one that dies that night," Harry said.
She looked down. Ginny couldn't say anything for a moment. All she could do was rub his shoulder.
"It was just a dream, Harry. Now come on, the train leaves at eleven. You don't want Lily to miss her first year, do you?" Ginny asked.
Harry nodded and got up.
"Give me five minutes," he said.
He turned to the door as a boy's voice came from the staircase.
"Mum, have you got Dad up yet?" the boy asked.
Harry smiled and pulled on a pair of trousers.
"I'll be right down, Albus," he called back.
Harry straightened up to find Ginny smiling at him. He too smiled and pulled her into his arms.
"To think he was scared his first year. Now he can't wait to leave to go," Ginny said.
Meanwhile, downstairs, their kids, James, Lily, and Albus were all sitting at the table waiting for their parents.
"Watch out while in the forbidden forest now. There are all sorts of creatures in there," James said.
Lily's eyes grew as Albus rolled his eyes.
"I thought students weren't allowed," Lily panicked.
Albus put his hand on his sister's shoulder.
"Don't listen to him, Lily. James is just joking," he said.
Lily looked down and sighed.
"I'm glad I'll have Hugo with me," she said.
Albus bit his lip, knowing how Rose was.
"Hope Rose hasn't given him a rough time," he said.
They all turned as Ginny and Harry entered the room.
"Speaking of the Weasley's, are Ron and Hermione meeting us here, or at the station?" Harry asked.
"Station… that is if Ron doesn't get into an accident," she said.
Yay, I'm done. Hope you enjoyed the twist.
