A/N: Alright, here is the deal, due to some… less than flattering… reviews, that I have left posted, I am adding a split ending. Directions and choices are below… if you really want to read both… then have at it…

If you want the happy ending, if a tad unrealistic and a bit unbelievable, Go back a chapter… and read Redemption, and ignore the other…

If you want the more realistic and more brooding anger and upset anal arse… then you are in the right area and keep reading….

A/N: An Anonymous Reviewer stated, and I quote: "Congratulations, you have successfully emasculated Harry's character more than I thought humanly possible. The pussification of Harry is complete." If said Anon Reviewer would be pleased, I added this… Alternative ending, if you will… to make Harry a man again…

A Secret: Birthday to Remember

Ending Number Two:

Demise:

For the full mile back to the Manor, Albus and I talked. Everything that had happened was laid bare, and still I felt like nothing had changed. She had left me in The Dursley's care, hadn't stepped in at all during my school years, she was nowhere to be seen during the final battle, and even with the honeymoon she gave to Ginny and I, I still grew up without a mother. Why was she stepping up now, when I am fully grown and didn't need a mother anymore?

"Harry, you can't keep this bottled up inside you anymore. You have to tell her… whatever your decision might be." Albus said, as he paused at the gates of the Manor. "Do what your heart is telling you would be the best for you and your growing family." With that, he disapparated away.

I spent several hours deciding exactly what to say. Finally I figured out what needed to be said. I headed into my office, and grabbed a quill.

"Miss. Montgomery or Mrs. Potter…

I have full reasons and rights to never speak to you again… and I have a feeling that is what I will do. You had many chances to step up and make yourself known to me, and yet, you didn't. I do not wish to see you or speak to you again. It would do well for you not to contact me or my family again. I have no parents, they died Heroes, on Halloween night, 1981.

H. J. Potter"

With the final signing of my name, I looked over the letter. True, it was a bit harsh, but she had never shown me any mercy. After tying it to Hedwig's leg, I watched her fly off and once she disappeared from view, I sank into my chair.

"I have no parents, they died on Halloween Day, when I was one year old." I repeated to myself.


THE END

A/N: ok… so that is ending number two. This is the "Emo… he hates the world… not even like Harry" Ending. Now… if you have a problem with it… please feel free to message me and let me know what the problem is. I tried to be as realistic as possible… but this is FAN FICTION…

Anyways, the little button in the middle likes it when you click on it…
