Now, even Harry Potter had his secrets.
Things he felt were better left unsaid, or unmentioned, for the sake of keeping peace and calmness. Because back then, calmness was quite rare, and to be cherished.
And so, even Harry had his secrets.
Or should I say especially Harry had his secrets.
Harry was a fiercely loyal friend; everyone in the wizarding world knew that, and if they didn't, then they damn well better by now. The Boy Who lived was faithful, loyal, trusting, smart….
But you know that. I'm sure you know everything about the famous Harry Potter.
That's not the point I'm trying to make.
What I'm trying to say is Harry Potter was faithful, smart, and loyal enough to know when not to tell his best friend, Ron Weasley, something, and that's exactly what Harry did.
So Harry never told Ron what he saw Hermione do, that night at the Yule Ball.
And when Ron and Hermione married, he never dreamed of mentioning it to Ron.
Harry simply let it drift from his mind.
There was no point to say anything.
It wasn't of much importance, neither was it at the time it had happened. It had nothing to do with anything concerning Voldemort, and so it simply didn't make the cut as something to be worrying over. They had enough to worry about.
So, Harry kept his mouth shut.
But to be honest…it plagued his mind quite a while, afterwards. Things became a little clearer. He understand more. Things made sense.
Loyalty between two friends is rough.
But Harry did indeed choose.
And he chose to keep Hermione's secret.
So when James Potter came home from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the winter holidays, and announced to his father of Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy's dating, all Harry could think was,
"And so history repeats."
Then the secret Harry had kept so long, long ago, popped back into his memory.
And he wondered if Hermione remembered, too.
