And here's the last Chapter. Chapter Twenty Two! :)
Dumbledore led Harry and Melissa to the hospital wing to have Madam Pomfrey take a look at them. Once they got there they saw that Fred, George, Ron, and Hermione were waiting for them. Dumbledore went up to Madam Pomfrey to talk to her and their friends ran up to them. Fred pulled Melissa into a comforting hug. When they parted she felt tears start to come out of her eyes and George put his arms around her. She put her arms around him and she started to cry. Hermione gave Harry a hug and Ron patted him on his back.
"You gonna be okay mate," Ron asked in a quiet voice.
"I will be," Harry told his friend.
Hermione turned to Melissa with tears in her eyes as she watched Fred and George try to comfort her. After a few more seconds Melissa and George parted and Hermione rushed over to hug her friend. When Hermione and Melissa stopped hugging Ron came over to give her a hug.
"Don't worry," Ron said when the two parted. "We're here for you guys."
"Yeah," Hermione said. "We're not going anywhere."
"Thanks," Melissa said. "That means a lot."
"Yeah it does," Harry said as he walked over to his sister and he put his arm around her.
Dumbledore left the hospital wing and Madam Pomfrey examined Harry and Melissa. They weren't seriously injured but she insisted that they stay the night so she could make sure that they were alright. Harry's and Melissa's friends stayed with them until they were shooed out of the hospital wing so the twins could get some rest. They laid down in their beds and after some difficulty they finally fell asleep.
The next day everyone was gathered in the Great Hall listening to Dumbledore talk about what happened to Cedric. Melissa was sitting up front in between Fred and George. Tears were coming down her face and George put his arms around her to comfort her. She laid her head on his shoulder and Fred looked at her with a sad look on his face. He hated to see his best friend like that. Harry was up front as well sitting in between Ron and Hermione. He turned to his sister and saw that she was crying again. Neither one of them had gotten over what had happened at the graveyard and Harry knew that it would definitely take some time before they started to.
"Today we acknowledge a really terrible loss," Dumbledore finally said. He then got to his feet and walked up to his podium. "Cedric Diggory was as you all know, exceptionally hard working, intricately fair minded. And most importantly a fierce fierce friend. I think therefore you have the right to know exactly how he died. You see Cedric Diggory was murdered, by Lord Voldemort. The Ministry of Magic does not wish me to tell you this. But not to do so I think would be an insult to his memory. Now the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me, reminds us that while we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one. In the light of recent events the bonds of friendship we made this year will be more important than ever. Remember that and Cedric Diggory will not have died in vain, you remember that. And we'll celebrate a boy who was kind and honest and brave and true right to the very end."
Later that day, Harry and Melissa were sitting in the Common Room talking with Professor Dumbledore. They were the only ones in the room seeing as how everyone else was outside saying goodbye to the Durmstrang students and the Beauxbaton students.
"I put you both through terrible danger this year," Dumbledore said. "For that I am terribly sorry."
"Professor," Melissa said. "When we were in the graveyard there was a moment when Voldemort's wand and our wands sort of connected."
"Priorium Contatum," Dumbledore said. "You saw your parents that night didn't you? They reappeared."
Harry and Melissa didn't speak they just nodded.
"No spell can reawaken the dead," Dumbledore told them. "I trust you two knew that. Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy. You two are not alone," when Dumbledore finished the last sentence he got to his feet.
Dumbledore then started making his way back to the portrait hole but stopped and turned back around to face them.
"Oh and by the way," Dumbledore said. "Fred and George are waiting outside the portrait hole for you Melissa. Shall I send them in?"
Melissa nodded and Professor Dumbledore turned and walked out of the portrait hole.
"Harry let's give the winnings to Fred and George," Melissa said. "I don't want the galleons. And they need it."
"I agree," Harry said. "I don't want the winnings either. I'll run upstairs and get it."
Just as Harry rushed up to his dormitory Fred and George walked in through the portrait hole. Melissa smiled when she saw her best friend and boyfriend walk up to her.
"Hey Melissa," the twins said together.
"Hi," Melissa said.
"How are you doing," George asked Melissa as he sat next to her.
"Yeah we haven't really seen much of you since well you know," Fred said trying to carefully word what he said. He didn't want to upset her because when he last saw her she was crying and he didn't want to see her cry again. Melissa was like a sister to him and he hated to see her like that.
"I'll be okay," Melissa assured them. "Thanks for being there for me guys."
"Hey I see you as my sister," Fred told her as he sat down next to her. "So that makes you family. And family looks out for each other."
"And you're my girlfriend," George said with a smile on his face. "I care about you a lot and I'm not going to let anything happen to you."
Melissa smiled and she gave Fred a hug and she kissed George. Just then Harry walked down the stairs carrying a large coin sack in his hands.
"Hey Harry," Fred and George said.
"Hi guys," Harry said as he walked over to them.
"What's that," George asked.
"The Triwizard winnings," Harry told them.
"We want you two to have it," Melissa said.
"What," Fred and George said in a shocked voice as they got to their feet.
"We can't take that," Fred said.
"Yeah that belongs to you guys," George said.
"That may be but we don't want it," Harry told them. "Plus we don't really need the money. And you guys need quite a bit of money to start your joke shop right?"
"Well yeah but we don't feel right taking it from you guys," Fred said.
"Okay how about this," Melissa said. "You two and I were planning on opening a joke shop correct?"
"Yes," Fred and George said.
"Well think of this as my personal start up fee for the shop," Melissa said. "I'll eventually be putting in money towards the shop anyway. Might as well start now."
"But we still don't," George began but Harry cut him off.
"Look if you two don't take it I'll hex you," Harry said. "Ginny taught me how to use the Bat-Bogey Hex and I'm not afraid to use it."
"Okay, okay we'll take it," Fred said.
"Yeah Ginny already threatens us enough with that hex," George told them.
Melissa chuckled and she kissed George. "Well if you wouldn't have been so stubborn he wouldn't have threatened to use it on you," Melissa told him.
Harry, Melissa, Fred, George, Ron, and Hermione were now walking outside through the courtyard. George and Melissa are walking together hand in hand and everyone walked together in silence just enjoying the beautiful weather.
"Do you guys think we'll ever have a quiet year at Hogwarts," Ron asked breaking the silence.
"No," Hermione said with a chuckle.
"Somehow I don't think so," Harry told his friend.
"We'll never be that lucky Ron," Melissa said.
"Besides quiet is boring," Fred said.
"You're right there Fred," George added.
"Everything is going to change now isn't it," Hermione asked.
"Yes," Harry and Melissa said together.
"Promise you'll write," Hermione told her friends. "You will write won't you? The three of you I mean," Hermione asked Harry, Ron, and Melissa.
"Well I won't. You know I won't," Ron said with a laugh.
"But Harry and Melissa will," Hermione said. "Right?"
"Yeah," they both said.
"Every week," Harry told her.
"And you two had best write to," Melissa said to Fred and George.
"We'll write every week to," George said as he put an arm around Melissa.
"We promise," Fred said giving her a smile.
The six friends walk over to the balcony and they watched the sun set behind the mountains in the distance.
And that's the end of the Potter Twins and the Goblet of Fire. If you guys would like to see the Potter Twins deal with Umbridge in the Order of the Phoenix let me know. :)
