A/N: okay just a small fic that i've wanted to write. hope you enjoy.
I've changed the ages of some of the characters, so they go like this.
I think that's all of the weasley kids. in jk rowlings mind anyways :)
That is the only word to describe a young child's birthday party with the Weasley's.
Their entire family showed up on occasions like these. Yes, even Charlie came from Romania, and Teddy Lupin was always invited even though he was not an official member of their family. Yet.
It was now time to blow out the candles on Louis's cake, after a very loud rendition of "Happy Birthday". He blew out his nine candles with one breath, and everyone gave him another round of applause. His mother, Fleur, immediately engulfed him into a hug, while Bill, his father, prefered to ruffle his hair.
The music began to play once more, and everyone went back to mingling.
"I can't believe my baby brother just turned nine!" said Victoire, turning to face her secret fiance, Teddy Lupin.
"I know." he said, giving her a smile. "It's so weird being the eldest child here. Well, if you can call me a child anymore, but I've watched all of your cousins (including you) grow up."
"I didn't realise you felt like such an old fogie." joked Victoire.
"Whatever." said Teddy, rolling his eyes. He then scanned the crowd of people, as if looking for someone. He was in fact looking for someone. James Potter. But, as usual, Teddy couldn't find hide nor hair of him. It was extremely worring, and he couldn't see James' partner in crime, Fred Weasley, either.
"Who're you looking for?" asked Victoire.
"James and Fred." he answered in a worried tone. "And I'm also wondering what they're up to, and what I might be able to do to stop it."
"They're not that bad." said Victoire.
"You obviously haven't seen them in action."
Before he could add anything else, he felt a small tug on the back of his shirt. He whirled round to find a small red-headed girl holding a blanket, looking up at him, with big blue eyes.
"Hey Lils!" he shouted over the noise. He lent over, and picked up the little six year-old, and balanced her on his hip. "What's up with you, enjoying the party?"
She nodded with smile, holding the end of her blanket up to rub her nose like she always did when she was tired, nervous or scared.
"Tired?" asked Teddy.
She shook her head.
"What's the matter then?"
She paused, then whispered, "James and Fred are being naughty."
"What? How?" asked Victoire.
"They're playing in Grandad's shed, with Grandad's muggle things. Rose and Al tried to stop them, but they wouldn't listen to them. Hugo even tried to help, but they don't listen to little people."
"Come on then." said Teddy, swapping Lily to balance on his other hip. "You coming?" he asked Victoire.
"Yep, lets go!" she said, while she placed her drink down on the nearest table. She then gently took Teddy's spare hand and they all made their way outside towards Arthur's shed.
They had almost reached it when Albus and Hugo ran out to meet them.
"Thank goodness you're here Teddy!" said Albus, "Rose is still trying to stop them, but they won't listen!"
"Well they'll llisten to me." said Teddy, making his way inside, followed by Victoire, Hugo and Albus.
"Look, you two! You'd better stop now, or else Grandad will be really upset!" shouted an annoyed, bushy-haried girl.
"Rose it's okay." said Teddy. "I'll take care of it."
She turned round to face Teddy, and gave him a smile with her buck-teeth. "Thank you." and she turned back to the two fifteen year-old boys, and gave them a smug smile.
"Come on guys. Put down whatever you've got and let's go back inside before anyone can find out."
"Don't be such a ninny, Teddy. Live a little!" said James.
"I'm not being a ninny. I'm just being sensible."
"Whatever." said Fred, and he picked up a small gold object.
"Look, what if you break something? Grandad will be really upset, so come on."
James just rolled his eyes, and he then caught sight of the gold object that Fred was inspecting. Fred offered it to him to look and James took it.
"Guys, if you don't come I'll get Harry in here."
Both of them looked up.
"You wouldn't." said Fred.
"I would. Now it's either, go in now, and not get caught. Or me going to get Harry, and you two having to face the consequences. Which will it be?"
James and Fred looked at each other.
"It's a dirty game playing tell-tale." said Fred, putting down the rubber duck he was holding.
"I'm glad you're making the right choice." said Teddy with a triumphant smile.
James placed the gold object back on the table, but while he was walking around the table, the gold chain caught on his jeans. The object was yanked off the table and hit the floor, smashing into lots of little glass pieces.
Teddy sighed. "You see what you do!"
"It was an accident!"
"Whatever." said Teddy and he bent over to look at all the little glass pieces.
"It looks pretty." said Lily, who was still balanced on his hip.
"Don't touch it though, you'll hurt yourself."
"Is it me, or does that look like a time-turner?" said Victoire coming up behind him.
The shed then suddenly shook, as if there was a mild tremor.
"What the hell was that?!" asked a freaked-out Fred. Lily nuzzled her head into Teddy's shoulder.
Teddy stood up again, and took out his wand with his spare hand, as did Victoire.
Hugo ran over to Teddy. He was probably the best source of protection. Rose and Albus realised this too and they both ran over to Teddy.
James and Fred stayed put.
There was another tremor, but this time it was bigger and lasted longer. Teddy was watching out of the window. The Weasley house wasn't affected. It stayed still, and the party still carried on inside.
"What's happening Teddy?" asked Hugo.
"I don't know. But it has something to do with that Time-Turner that James broke."
The was a short silence. Then Lily's muffled voice was heard saying.
"I knew James was going to get us all in trouble."
There was a flash of light, and everyone that was inside the shed was whisked away.
