Chapter 22: Owl Post Again

Harry was glad when term had ended and they were all ready to head back home. James had written to him, telling him that he would pick Harry up on his birthday and that they would be going to the Quidditch World Cup.

"Are you coming?" Harry asked Hermione.

"I don't know," Hermione said, "I mean, I really want to spend time with you but I'm afraid that Ron might be there."

Harry was starting to see red but his logical mind told him that he would probably serve detention for that when he got back.

"Well let me know if you're coming?" Harry said.

"No problem," Hermione said.

The results of the exams came and Harry was happy to see that he had passed, despite the fact that Malfoy was trying to fail him. Hufflepuff won the House Cup and that meant another defeat for Slytherin. The feast was great because Slytherin hadn't won and Harry could forget about his return to the Dursley's. The next morning everything was packed up and put in Harry's trunk and that's when he noticed a small box. He saw a note, telling him that Malfoy had brewed the potion for him to take during the summer and that the vials were shatter proof.

"Thank God for small things," Harry said and put the box in with his other things.

The students all crowded the entrance hall to head either to the carriages or to the boats that would take them back to the train. Harry quickly joined Hermione and Justin, Ron not too far behind.

"Are you going to write, Harry," Justin asked.

"Sure," Harry said as they climbed in.

Thankfully Ron failed to get into the same carriage as they were in.

"Are you going to the Quidditch World Cup?" Justin asked.

"I want to but I don't know if my godfather will be able to get tickets," Harry said, "But if I can then I'll see you."

Justin grinned at him and then turned to Hermione. "Going too?" he asked.

"I don't know," Hermione said, "But I'll try."

They all boarded the Hogwarts Express and sat down. As soon as the train started to move Justin told Harry and Hermione that Professor Lupin wouldn't be returning. Both of them were a little sad that he wasn't coming back but Harry, deep down, knew that it would be for the best if Lupin and Hermione were separated.

"Do you think we'll see him again?" Hermione asked Justin.

"I don't know but anything is possible," Justin said and after that no one talked about Lupin again.

As the train headed nearer and nearer to London there was a knock on the door. When it opened Harry was sure that it would be Pansy and her stupid friends but it turned out to be his Godfather as well as Sirius Black.

"Hello, you three," Sirius said, grinning at the group, "Could we join you?"

"Sure," Harry said and they moved aside to let them sit.

"So why are you here?" Hermione asked them.

"Well we wanted to make sure that you go to London in one piece as well as give you something."

He pulled out an envelope and handed it to Harry. He opened it and saw tickets to the Quidditch World Cup

"I'm also inviting Miss Granger," James added and Hermione went pink.

"I think it will be a lot of fun," Justin said, "And it looks like I'll see you after all."

The train came to a stop at Kings Cross Station and everyone slowly got off. The old guard had to make sure that they went in two's and three's so that they didn't scare the muggles by going out in one big group. When Harry and Hermione appeared Harry was surprised to see only Uncle Vernon standing there.

"Come on," he growled.

Harry gave Hermione a kiss on the cheek and then went over to Uncle Vernon's car.

"Wait," yelled James and he ran over to where they were. "You must be Harry's Uncle."

"In a manner of speaking," Uncle Vernon told him.

James placed his face right up to Vernon's. "If I find out that you're causing him any problems I'll personally make sure that you're sent away. Got that, sir."

Uncle Vernon went white and Harry knew that he was scared of him.

"Got it," Uncle Vernon said.

"Good," James said and then he helped to load Harry's trunk into the trunk of the car.

They all got in and Harry waved at the group as they left. He knew that he would have a better summer then last.

A/N: Sorry but this is the last chapter. I really enjoyed writing this and I was happy with the reviews that I got. Thanks everyone and I hope that all of you enjoy Harry Snape and the Goblet of Fire. Once again, thanks.
