Chapter 101: Truly The End

It had been a hard day for Harry. He had to expel three students for doing something that should never be done. How they were able to turn someone inside out he had no idea. He laid back in his chair, in his office, and thought over what he thought about most of the time; all the things that had happened to him. He remembered the war, Dumbledore, Lily coming back from the dead, helping Riddle get his humanity back (Riddle died thirty years ago), falling in-love with Hermione, having a job and family, and going through the ups and downs of life.

Crystal and Teddy were dead, along with Ron, Hermione, Ron's wife, all the Weasley's (there was only one Weasley left and it was a girl), and many other people. Severus had died last year, which still hurt, and the only child that he had left was Hugo. He sighed and closed his eyes.

"Honey," came a voice that Harry hadn't heard in a long time.

Harry opened his eyes and found himself looking at Hermione. She was young again and wearing a really beautiful dress.

"Come on, we're going to be late."

"For what," Harry asked.

"For the ball you idiot man," Hermione answered, smiling at him.

Harry stood up and followed Hermione, not noticing that he had left his body behind.

He followed her down the corridor, down the stairs, and into the Great Hall. They were all there, all the people that he had lost. Everyone smiled at Harry as he passed them by.

"Where are we going," Harry asked.

"We're going to a place where we can live happily ever after," Hermione answered.

"Hello, Harry," said Severus Snape.

Harry went over and hugged him and Severus returned it.

"Welcome back, Harry," Remus said.

And they disappeared into the stars, everyone following suit. Harry was home, at last, with Severus, Remus, his own son, Crystal, Teddy, and everyone else. Everyone was happy and it was finally the end, at least for Harry.

He had done it. What started out as a boy proving that he belonged to the Wizarding world had been one huge adventure, one that Harry would never change?


"I hope that your happy dad," Hugo said as they buried his father.

Of course he knew that his dad was and he hoped that someday he would see him again. He turned around and headed back to the castle, a phoenix that hadn't been seen in a long time singing one last song.



A/N: Well this is the end of the story. I hope that you all liked it and once again thanks for the reviews. I thought that I would have trouble putting out a story this huge but thankfully nothing bad happened to the story and it didn't get deleted or anything like that. I've got another story that I'm working on and I will be posting it soon. Thanks again.
