Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter or Twilight.
I know I said I wouldn't put up another story until Childhood Twilight was finished. But, this story is one I started many moons ago. In honest I had forgot about it. I never planned on publishing it. I just never really could find stories I wanted to read, so that was why I wrote this. I found this one hid in my documents. I'm glad I checked it out before I hit delete. I had it under HP.
This was before the idea of the sprite came to be. But, I think a few of you will like this. Maybe even better than Childhood Twilight.
Also, this story is almost finished. I have eight chapters. Eight very long chapters.
I had a lot of fun writing this one. I stayed totally in Harry's point of view.
Pairings are a surprise. You are most welcome to guess.
Also, this is totally AU.
Chapter One: Changes
Harry Potter was known to the world as a lot of things. The-boy-who-lived, seemed to everyone's favorite. He still saw himself as Harry, just Harry. At least, that was how he wished he could see himself. Mostly he agreed with his uncle. He was a freak. His awaking in the early morning hours had proved just that.
He still wasn't sure as to what had happened, or even how it happened. All he knew was that he awoke to pain. The pain had started in his toes and worked up to his ears. Inching, burning and a hard stinging pain that still surrounded his head.
Harry had done nothing different the night before. He had waited into midnight rolled in, so he could welcome his fourteenth birthday. He had done that yearly, so he really couldn't say that it was different either.
Only the proof stared right him. Surly the refection cast by his own body wouldn't lie. If that were so, then every mirror he had managed to sneak a good look in was wrong.
His messy hair settled into midnight, curls. Dark curls that surrounded a much smaller face, which even Harry had to admit, they went with his much smaller body. He was just happy that emerald eyes had stayed in place. His scar had even been replaced by smooth clear skin.
Now, what to do? Contacting Dumbledore had been his first thought. Something had held him back in doing just that. In all honestly, he simply wanted to run away. Only Harry Potter never ran. It wasn't in him to do something like that.
Harry Potter had people that depended on him. He had people that cared and some that even loved him. Moving from the mirror back over to his bed, he sat down silently. Would they now though? Would they still care? Would the ones that loved him, still be there for him? Those were hard questions, ones he was unsure of.
Nothing would be the same. How could it? He looked too different. Right now, if he could walk up to anyone of his friends, he would even bet that they wouldn't know him. He didn't even have to wear his glasses.
What to do? Hermione came to mind. She would most likely know what to do. Then again, she would be one to go straight to Dumbledore. Ron just flat out wouldn't understand. Shoot, he didn't even understand. He just hoped he wasn't the only one that went though changes.
Feeling another magic pull around his head, Harry glanced toward the mirror. He watched as his hair grew half way down his back before coming to a halt.
Harry was coming to a scary conclusion that Harry Potter would be no more. Even he could see that he was no longer human. He just wasn't sure what he was, and more important, how he got this way.
If he had to guess, he would say some kind of elf. Not a house elf, but one from a muggle book. His ears had been a dead give away. They had slight points to them. Yes, an elf, only he didn't know what kind. He had never heard of any other kind of elves.
That was what worried him. He was honest enough to admit it worried him a lot. Would they see him as a creature now? Would they look to him as they did Dobby? As they looked at the goblins? What would they see when they saw him?
He worried about the Dursleys as well. What would they say when they saw him? Harry didn't think that they would even know him. That gave him three hours. Three hours to decide what he needed to do and then do it.
Harry had managed to pack all his things. It wasn't like he had much. Clothes that he had worn at eleven now fit him. That alone was scary. He still had to keep them up by a tight belt.
He had already turned Hedwig loose and sent her to Ron. She would be safer there. A lot safer than if he took her with him. There was also the problem everyone knew her as his owl. That meant he would be safer without her.
Harry moved his trunk outside the door. He still was unsure as to where to head. Something still told him to stay away from the man. That didn't leave him with many options.
Something moved him toward Severus Snape. The thought alone scared him. Why was he being urged toward the one person that hated the ground he walked on? Even if he had wanted to go see the bat, he didn't have a clue as to where to find him.
Instead he followed the sidewalk. His hair luckily covering his ears, but that was all. Harry had nothing to cover his hair.
He followed where his feet took him. They lead him away from the house he grew up in. In fact they lead him away from everything and everyone. He let his feet lead him.
Harry felt himself stop on a street he had never been on. There had to something here, or someone, he just didn't know which one. He could feel it.
Harry scanned the crowd for someone, anyone he knew. There was no one, not a soul to be seen. He stomped his foot not caring if it seemed childish. Right now he didn't care if he seemed childish or not.
"How moving Mr. Potter." A cool voice spoke out behind him.
"Professor Snape!" Harry cried out turning around. "You know who I am."
"Is there a reason as to why I shouldn't know?" He asked crossing his arms glaring down at the small boy.
Harry felt the blush start at his neck, then it worked it's way up to his small tiny points on his ears. He covered his mouth with his hand. His voice now had a musical ring to it.
Severus pushed open the door he stood in front of. "If you will, it would appear, there are a few things we need to talk about."
Harry gave a slight nod before walking by his potions professor.
"Follow me." Severus murmured taking the lead.
Harry followed and hoped he wouldn't have to say anything. His voice hadn't been like that when he had set Hedwig free. He followed him into a stuffy room. A room that hadn't been used in a very long time. Dust stood a good two inches thick.
I wouldn't take a seat if I were you." Severus said turning to face the boy.
That was fine by Harry. Instead he used his trunk and perched up on it.
"Do you know what you are?" Severus asked.
Harry shook his head sending dark curls flying.
"You are a half-breed Mr. Potter, and do you know what that means?" He asked with a sneer.
Sadly Harry did know. He knew all to well. Slowly he nodded his head.
"Really?" Severus asked turning from him.
Harry cleared his throat. "I'll not be wanted."
Severus gave a snort. "Not hardly Mr. Potter."
Harry studied his fingers. He hated how small they had become. Much like his feet. His shoes reminded him of a clown he had once saw.
"Elves are the rarest of all; in fact, they are not even called creatures at all." Severus whispered.
"What about house elves?" Harry asked without thinking.
"You are not a house elf Mr. Potter." Severus smirked.
Harry was just happy he had the elf part right. He just didn't know what kind of elves Professor Snape was talking about. He had never heard of them before. Just the ones in the muggle books.
"Are you not curious as to how you became an elf Mr. Potter?" Severus asked still unmoved by the child before him.
Harry nodded sending his curls flying once more. That was one question he really wanted an answer to. From the smirk the professor carried, it would seem he knew the answer.
Severus nodded once. "The dark lord had someone in Hogwarts."
'No surprise there." Harry thought. Snake face always had someone in Hogwarts.
"He had someone to place a potion into the food. A potion that would wake any dormant gene a person could be carrying." Severus replied walking over to the window. "It has affected students and professors alike."
"So others have been changed?" Harry asked surprised.
Severus turned facing the young boy once more. "It has affected some badly. Some have turned out not as lucky as you have."
"Who?" Harry asked not caring about his voice anymore.
"That is not my place to say." Severus slowly answered.
"Why would he do that?" Harry asked concerned. "What reason could he have to do that?"
"The gain followers of course." Severus answered. "Followers in which he has gained, but in turn, he has lost some of his most important followers."
Harry wondered if he would tell him whom. He needed to know whom; he wanted to know who was affected as well. "Dumbledore."
"As I said, it is not my place to say." Severus remarked.
"There has to be away to fix this." Harry muttered crossing his own arms. He hated to feel helpless. Which, right now, that was how he felt.
"There is no fixing this Potter. There is no way to reverse this." Severus remarked. "That just can't be done."
Harry studied the dusty floor. Snape had in so many words told him that Dumbledore had been affected. He had told him some were affected badly. He was willing to bet it was Dumbledore. Snape had also said Snake face had gained followers, likewise, he had lost followers.
"Dumbledore, he is following Voldemort then?" Harry asked in a small voice.
Snape only gave a slight nod in answer.
"He wouldn't." Harry whispered mostly to himself. "He couldn't, not even if he wanted to, I mean he is light."
"He could." Severus said lowly, "and he has."
Harry felt all energy drain out of his body. "We are lost then, without him, it will be hopeless."
"It would seem." Professor Snape agreed. "But, that is not true. There is always hope."
"What good is hope?" Harry asked. What good was hope when all else is dead? "And Hogwarts, what will happen to Hogwarts?"
"Hogwarts is still safe, and it shall remain safe." Severus answered.
Harry nodded in relief. "And is their anyone else sir?"
"We are checking on the students, I was on my way to collect you." Severus said looking out the window once more.
"Collect me sir?" Harry asked surprised.
"It would seem The Dark Lord has given Albus his first assignment." Severus answered once more turning toward Harry.
"Which is?" Harry asked.
"He is to collect you himself." Severus answered. Pulling Harry off the trunk, he shrunk it and put it in his pocket.
"I really need to learn that." Harry muttered.
"We must go, and we must be quick." Severus responded heading toward the door. "Hold on tightly to my robes now."
Harry closed his eyes and did as he was told. It felt as if someone was trying to rip him apart. Feeling sick to his stomach, he landed hard on his feet.
"Follow me." Severus remarked heading toward the castle. "And do not, I repeat, do not tell anyone who you are. Unless it is that Granger girl."
Harry had little choice in the matter. He followed right behind him wondering what would happen now. What had happened to his friends, and he couldn't help but wonder, if any of them had went over to the dark.
Severus led the way inside the castle. "Up to your common room until I sent for you."
"Okay." Harry agreed already taking off. He didn't have to tell him twice.
Harry walked into the common room, feeling more than relief flow through his body upon seeing Hermione standing by the fireplace. "Hermione?"
Hermione turned to get a closer look. "Do I know you?"
Harry smiled but couldn't help but notice how empty the room was.
"Harry! You have been affected." She cried out running to him.
"Not for the bad." Harry smiled, "well unless you call turning into an elf bad, then yeah, it's pretty bad all right. Snape also said not to tell people who I am. But, he did say, I could tell that Granger girl."
Hermione smiled wiping a tear out of her eye. "They plan on sending us away you know."
"Who?" Harry asked surprised. He looked surprised when Hedwig came flying in. She was to stay with Ron.
Hermione sadly nodded as if she knew what Harry had been thinking. "Ron, Ginny and Mrs. Weasley also have been affected, but not in a good way. They followed Dumbledore. The others are okay, the twins I mean. I think Percy followed as well, but that really isn't a surprise."
"Who else?" Harry asked.
"I don't know who all." Hermione answered.
Harry walked over to the fireplace. "What about you? Why are you here?"
"Professor Snape showed up at my house two days ago." Hermione answered. "He had Draco Malfoy with him. The death eaters came. Draco saved me Harry."
Harry stared down into the fire. It was hard seeing Draco in his mind saving Hermione. Not after all the fights they had been in. "what happened to your parents?"
"They were saved, they have been sent away." Hermione answered.
Harry looked over at her. "Why couldn't they just come here?"
Hermione took a deep breath to calm down her nerves. "Take a good look and me and me what you see."
Harry turned studying her. Her bushy hair was the same, so was her face. A face that seemed pale to him, but after this, who wouldn't be.
Reaching over she touched him.
"You're cold." Harry murmured looking her over.
"I'm a vampire Harry." She whispered. "Now tell me, what parents want a vampire for a child?"
"But how? I mean you were born to muggles." Harry asked surprised.
"My mother did say that she had heard talks of a vampire. He was killed according to her, but the gene still had been passed from one family member to another. I'm not the only muggleborn. Draco told me that." She answered.
"What does Draco have to do with this?" Harry asked surprised at the mention of his name once more.
"He is a Veela, as is his father." Hermione answered.
"So they have changed over?" Harry asked.
"It feels, as if we're in a nightmare, doesn't it?" Hermione asked returning to the fireplace. "I'm only half you know. I can still eat and all. I can even go into the sun it doesn't bother me. Draco is half as well."
"I am too." Harry muttered.
"Luna as well." Hermione looked sadly up at Harry. "She is here as well."
"What is she?" Harry asked.
"She is like me. A vampire, a human doesn't affect either of us." Hermione said with a slight grin. "There is also Blaise, he and Pansy are here as well."
"Do they know who put it in the food?" Harry asked.
"Nott." Hermione answered.
Harry turned to glare at the fire. Hermione was right; this was a nightmare, the scarcest one of all. He felt trapped with no way out, no way to awake.
"We are alike now you know." Hermione whispered.
"What do you mean?" Harry asked glancing once more at her.
"The four of us." She answered with a slight smile. "We are alike now, you, Luna, Draco and me. We are never going to die Harry. Draco will be able to age, but the three of us will not."
"Not age!" Harry shouted out.
Hermione shook her head. "Even you Harry, you'll never age, never grow old."
"So, you are saying, that I will always be a bloody child?" He asked crossing his arms.
Hermione gave him a good look over. "You are adorable did you know?"
Harry blushed staring down at the floor.
"So, what I have heard is true." Draco remarked walking in. "Harry Potter is an elf, My father said as such, but I for one didn't believe him."
"Leave him be Draco." Hermione said softly.
Harry watched Draco's face soften. A slight he never believed would happen.
He is a young elf." Hermione pointed out. "The baby in our small bunch, you might would say."
"I am not a baby." Harry informed them both.
"Ah, but you are." Draco nodded.
"I think you just proved our point, young Mr. Potter." Draco said with a smirk.
Harry politely stuck his tongue out.
"Be nice Harry." Hermione rebuked with a frown.
"He can't help it." Draco replied with a smirk. "Harry isn't the only reason that I took this journey into my enemy's territory."
"You have learned something?" Hermione asked eagerly.
"I have at that." Draco agreed.
"Severus will take over as headmaster." Draco informed them with a frown.
"What about the four of us?" Hermione asked worriedly. "Professor Snape told me that even though Hogwarts was safe, he said we still needed to be removed to somewhere safer."
Harry watched Draco mull over what he wanted to say next.
"Luna's father believes he will be able to protect her." Draco said slowly. "Our family will be moving to America, where I believe the two of you will also be headed."
"Why America?" Harry asked confused. "Why would he want us so far away?"
"It is smart really." Hermione nodded. "That would be the last place anyone would think to look."
"The only people that know Harry is an elf, is of course the two of us. Severus and my parents know, so we should be safe."
"But the war." Harry looked from one to the other.
"No longer matters to us." Draco replied looking over the small boy once more.
"Where will we go?" Hermione asked.
Draco looked around to be sure they were along. Something he had wished he had done before he had even opened his mouth. He had to stay on guard.
"Severus has also been affected." Draco whispered.
Hermione nodded. She for on had already guessed as much. "He is a vampire as well?"
Draco gave a nod.
"What does that have to do with us?" Harry asked pouting up once more.
"He has family. Family nobody else knew about." Draco answered in a whisper.
"This family is in America?" Hermione asked with a nod of her head.
Draco nodded. "You see, sense he has become headmaster, he has become Harry's magical guardian, now yours as well."
Harry studied this new Draco. "What does he plan to do to us?"
"He has already placed my father as your godfather." Draco started out slowly, waiting to see how Harry would take that news.
"And?" Hermione asked.
"He is planning on contacting his family, he knows they will take Hermione. It is you he worries about Harry." Draco answered.
"His family is vampires." Hermione said more as a statement.
"They drink from animal blood." Draco said with a grin.
"He doesn't have to worry about me." Harry crossed his arms staring back into the fire. "As long as Hermione is okay, I'll be fine."
Draco rolled his eyes. "Really, trust me, they will want to take you. I have met them once before, they are nothing like the vampires around here."
"So, they know about us? About magic?" Hermione asked.
"Carlisle, I'm sure he does. His wife may even know, but I don't think his children know." Draco answered thoughtful.
"Children?" Hermione asked confused.
Draco nodded. "He has adopted them."
"What is Carlisle to Professor Snape?" Hermione asked.
"Severus ran a heritage potion once." Draco answered. "Carlisle's name came up on it. Carlisle's father and Severus's great, great, great, great, great grandmother were bother and sister."
"It showed Carlisle alive? Didn't it?" Hermione asked
Draco nodded his answer once more. "Severus didn't know he even carried the vampire gene, this has come as a great shock as well."
"Why do we have to leave?" Harry asked not bothering looking up.
"The four of us are targets." Hermione answered.
"Out of the ones that have been affected, we are the ones, with the most power." Draco answered.
"What about Pansy and Blaise?" Harry asked.
"Both are Pixies." Draco answered.
Harry covered his mouth trying to keep the giggle in.
"I must be off." Draco said with a nod.
"Thank you for coming by." Hermione smiled.
With another nod, Draco went back out.
Harry looked over toward Hermione. "What happened with Ron and Ginny?"
"I don't know really." Hermione slightly smiled. "They don't even know what changed Professor Dumbledore. From what I've heard, he looks no different."
"Maybe it is a spell." Harry offered up.
"Or maybe it isn't." Hermione crossed her own arms. "All I do know is that they want us. Professor Snape is trying to keep us safe."
"And the war Hermione?" Harry asked.
"Can you beat Voldemort and Professor Dumbledore?" Hermione asked.
"No." Harry answered.
"It would be fruitless to even try." Hermione agreed. "Some people have already fled."
Harry settled into an overstuffed chair. "Hermione, what do you think his family looks like? Do you think that this Carlisle looks anything like him?"
Hermione gave a slight smile. "How do you think you will like living with them?"
"Why would they want me?" Harry asked.
"If you don't go, then I don't go." Hermione stated.
"You have to go." Harry said getting back up.
"Follow me!" A loud voice called out.
Harry spun around. He hadn't even heard Professor Snape walk in.
"What is this about?" Hermione asked taking hold of Harry's hand.
"I am to take you to them." Severus said with a nod.
"They have agreed to take the both of us?" Hermione asked surprised.
Harry stood in shock when Professor Snape seemed to actually smile. "While male vampires can reproduce, the females cannot."
"So?" Harry asked.
"You will be well protected there Mr. Potter." Severus said with a smirk.
Harry could feel his heart speed up. "Do they know I'm an elf?"
"They seemed pleased with that." Severus said thoughtfully. "It seemed like they were expecting it really, it didn't even come as a surprise when I showed up."
Even holding to Hermione's hand, Harry had to jog to keep up with them. "Could you slow down please?"
Severus stopped and looked over Harry. "We must hurry." He remarked lifting the boy to his hip.
"Just let me die." Harry murmured feeling a blush creep up to the points on his ears.
"We are trying to prevent that." Severus said heading outside.
"Where are we going?" Hermione asked grinning at Harry.
"Forks, Washington." Severus answered.
"What if Dumbledore finds us and takes us back?" Harry asked pretending he wasn't perched on his professors' hip.
"They have legally adopted the both of you." Severus said breaking into a dead run.
Harry felt sick. He wasn't even sure he had even flown this fast before. Before he could even call out for them to stop, he saw a flash of light, followed by a hard tug on his navel.
They managed to land at dusk, right in the middle of a large rainstorm. Harry didn't even try to get down. He was even fairly sure he'd sick up, or worst and fall on his face. Instead, he turned his attention to the house before him.
"Are we in America now?" Hermione asked.
"Yes, and this is your new home." Severus answered walking toward the door.
Hermione went to knock only to have the door fly open. A short dark haired girl stood before them with a bright smile on her face.
"I'm Alice." She said reaching over and hugging Hermione.
"I'm Hermione, and this is Harry." Hermione said with a small smile of her own.
Alice beamed at the sight of Harry. "It is a pleasure to meet you both."
Harry managed to work his way down. He could feel the embarrassment coming from his face.
"This way." Alice said holding the door open. "They are waiting on you."
"Thank you." Hermione smiled.
Harry smiled his thanks. He wasn't too sure his voice would work.
"Follow me." Severus said heading through the house.
Harry rolled his eyes. "I'm starting to think those are the only words he knows." He whispered over to Hermione.
Hermione got his hand and squeezed.
Harry nodded his understanding. Smiling or not, Hermione was nervous. They followed Severus, only Harry had taken to watching Alice. She seemed to be bouncing with every step she took. He liked her. Alice was one of those people you just had to like.
He found himself surrounded by people. This time he squeezed Hermione's hand just as hard. One question he had was now answered. Severus's family looked nothing like him.
"Harry, Hermione." Severus said pushing both children in front of him. "I would like you to meet Carlisle Cullen."
Harry smiled at the blond. Carlisle was much younger than Severus.
"We are all very excited to have you here with us." He said gently.
"We are just happy that someone would have us." Hermione said keeping her hold on Harry.
"I must go, before someone finds out that I have left." Severus said looking down at Harry and Hermione. "I except you to remember that you are in their home, and you could act accordingly."
"This is their home now as well." Carlisle said with a slight smile. "I hope in time, that they will come to feel it as such."
"I'm Esme." A smiling woman said coming forward hugging Hermione as well. She smiled got down to get a better look at Harry. "I hope the two of you will become very happy here."
Harry nodded hard sending his hair flying once more. Above Esme, he made out a big burly boy. The boy was smiling down at him.
Esme followed his eyes. "That is our son Emmett, next to him is his wife Rosalie."
Harry smiled at the beautiful blond. Rosalie wasn't really what you would call smiling. She looked as if she was in some sort of pain. Not as much pain as the other blond boy that had taken to standing by Rosalie.
Esme stood beside Harry. "That is Jasper, and you have met Alice."
Harry nodded in agreement.
"I'll walk Severus out." Carlisle said with a smile.
"He looks like Cedric." Hermione whispered.
Harry looked over to last of the bunch. Hermione was indeed right. He did look like Cedric.
"That is Edward." Esme said still with a smile on her face.
Harry hid a yawn behind his hand. By all rights, this had been the longest day in his life. He had awoke to a new him, a new life, and from the looks of it. A new family.
Esme smiled. "I think I'll show you two where your rooms are. It looks like someone could use a nap."
Harry once more nodded his agreement. Sleep would be good. And as far as food went, he still was pretty sure, he'd sick up.
Hermione smiled. "Thank you, I'll stay with him until he falls asleep."
"This way then." Esme smiled heading for the stairs.
Harry yawned once more. He didn't notice the big airy room he had been lead into. All he took notice of was the soft warm bed.
Harry awoke to darkness and no pain. He really liked the no pain part. Lying in the bed he watched the sun rise above the trees outside his window.
"I thought I heard you." Hermione said walking in.
"What about Sirius?" Harry asked turning toward her.
Hermione sat on the edge of the bed. "Before you came, I heard them talking, Moony and Padfoot both went somewhere in Russia."
"Why would they go to Russia?" Harry asked.
"Like most, they are running." Hermione answered.
Harry pushed the blankets off of him. It didn't seem right, they shouldn't have to run. "We have to do something."
"What? What do you think we should do?" Hermione asked.
"We could sneak back in, take one out at a time." Harry answered.
"We could." Hermione agreed with a nod. "Only, we still would have Dumbledore and Voldemort to deal with."
"Then we take them out." The bright eyed boy said. "Just like the rest of them, one at a time."
"How Harry?" Hermione asked.
That seemed to be the top problem. How? How could they do that? "What are their weaknesses?"
"Lemon drops." Hermione answered with a grin.
Harry rolled his eyes before jumping up. "You know, you could be right. He does have a weakness, even if it is something muggle as that."
"What do you mean?" Hermione asked.
"Dumbledore loves Lemon drops; he is all the time eating them." Harry had begun pacing in front of Hermione. "So, what we need is a potion. We need a potion that would put him to sleep for a very long time."
"Even if we could do that." Hermione said standing. "What good would it do to put him to sleep?"
Harry smiled. "We go after Voldemort while he is out. I mean as far as we know Voldemort has no body, not yet anyway."
"He is powerful." Hermione pointed out. "You seem to forget that."
"I haven't forgot." Harry said with a pout.
"And you have forgot the Cullen's." Hermione pointed out.
"Who?" Harry asked.
"Does Carlisle and Esme ring any bells?" Hermione asked.
Harry stared down at the floor. Maybe they had slipped his mind. They could pose a problem, he just wasn't sure. "I've never had parents before. Well, other than when I was a baby, but I really don't remember them."
"I don't think they will just you run off to fight dark wizards." Hermione whispered.
"Why not?" Harry asked crossing his arms. "Even Draco said we were the most powerful out of all, and the others Hermione, the ones that haven't run. How are we being fair to them?"
"You're not thinking this through." Hermione stated. "We have no way of training; we don't have enough people to see it through."
"Yes we do." Harry muttered fighting the urge to stomp his foot.
"Do you see Mr. Weasley fighting his wife or children in a duel? A duel that could lead to death?" Hermione asked shaking her head. "Do you think you could duel Ron or Ginny? Harry it won't be easy to find people to help us."
"But you're willing to?" Harry asked.
"I don't think I can." Hermione whispered. "Not Ron, he was one of us you know."
Sadly, Harry did know that. He didn't even see himself fighting them either.
"Unless," Hermione murmured to herself.
"Unless what?" Harry asked.
"Unless we did find a potion, one that would put them to sleep, one that nobody but us could wake them from." Hermione answered looking at Harry.
"How would we get them to take it?" Harry asked.
Hermione smiled. "Dumbledore does like his Lemon drops, Ron likes about anything. Joke or not, we might be on to something there."
Harry nodded. "We just have to find the right potion, one that will work."
"Then figure out away to get it to them." Hermione stated.
"Christmas." Harry grinned.
Hermione smiled. "Good. That might really work. That leaves us enough time to find the right potion, we could go over this with Professor Snape, he might even know a potion."
Harry nodded. "We could do that; we also need to find out who has been affected, and what part old snake face has them playing."
"Draco should know." Hermione nodded.
Harry grinned at her. "It sounds as if someone likes him."
"Do you want me to punch you?" Hermione warned.
"You do!" Harry stated surprised. "I was just kidding you know."
"I do not, thank you very much!" Hermione retorted.
"Go check out the closet." Hermione whispered.
Harry looked around until he saw a door. Pulling it open he stared at the roll of clothes.
"Alice, the one who answered the door, is a seer of sorts." Hermione said walking over. "She saw us coming over a month ago. Edward, the Cedric looking one, he can read your mind, so be careful around him, Jasper feels and can control how people feel."
"Is there anything else I should know?" Harry asked surprised.
"Carlisle is a doctor." Hermione said thinking.
"They can hear everything; a whisper doesn't get by them." Hermione said with a grin.
"So, does that mean they have been listening to us?" Harry asked.
"I warded the room." Hermione grinned.
Harry looked over the clothes. "That is good I suppose; only what am I supposed to wear?"
"Let me help you with that." Alice said coming in.
Harry glared at Hermione. "You said you warded the room."
"I did." Hermione said surprised.
Alice smiled. "Severus placed wards around the house before he would bring the two of you. He said you two might try a silencing charm."
"So, I guess everyone heard us." Harry remarked with a pout.
"They are out hunting." Alice smiled pulling out a green silk shirt. "They should be getting back soon."
Harry slipped on his shirt.
"If a person wanted to talk without being over heard, they would need to take the path until you came to a small field." Alice remarked handing Harry a pair of jeans. "Put them on so I can fix that hair."
Harry felt his face flame. "Close your eyes then."
Hermione put her hands over hers. Alice closed hers with a giggle.
"Girls." Harry muttered pulling on the jeans.
"Good." Alice nodded with a smile. "Now, let's do something to that hair; it is beautiful you know."
Harry crossed his arms feeling Alice start jerking on his hair. "How old do I look to you?"
He listened to both of them mutter an answer. "Huh?"
"It is really hard to tell." Hermione answered.
"What does that mean?" Harry asked.
"You are an elf." Hermione answered thoughtfully.
"So?" Harry asked.
"It takes elves hundreds of years to reach adulthood. The problem with you, is that you came to yours by someone waking up the dormant gene. You could very well stay the age you are. Which would be about twelve." Hermione answered.
"Twelve?" Harry asked. "I can't be twelve, I just can't. That is stupid."
Hermione held up her hand. "Now, there is no use in fussing over it. What is done is done, you know we can't go back and change that."
"We have before." Harry pointed out.
"That was different." Hermione protested.
"How?" Harry asked crossing his arms. "Tell me how that was different."
"I'll not get in to this with you now Harry." Hermione crossed her own arms.
"Because I'm right." Harry murmured walking by her.
"Why would you think that?" Hermione asked getting in front of him.
Harry stuck his tongue out.
"If you're not careful, I'll let Professor Snape use that tongue for one of his potions." Hermione warned.
Harry crossed his arms. "I'll just do it all on my own."
    
Honestly, what do you think? If you want I can wait until Childhood Twilight is finished, and then put it up between the sequel of Childhood Twilight. Or I can put up what I have. I'll put up a chapter a week.
So, yes, no? The choice is yours.
