HELLO, Readers!

I am back for this story. Sorry it has taken so long. I've been writing my new stories and kind of forgot about these others ones especially with my new story The Malfoys. I hope you read it. Anyways thank you too: SunStar989 for reminding me about this story. I just notice that this story hasn't been updated as normally as the others have.

I will be taking into account the ideas you have given me.

Chapter 11: Friends and Trouble: Draco's Father knows

Harry looked at Sirius. They were now standing outside Severus's classroom. They could here Severus having a stern talk with Draco about being out after curfew. They stood outside the door for a good ten to fifteen minutes before Sirius told Harry to knock on the door, when Remus came around the corner with a not so happy Hermione Granger.

"Hermione, why are you here?"

"Ask him." Hermione said crossing her arms and glaring at Remus.

"Uncle Remus?" Harry asked looking at Remus.

"We'll talk about it later. Does Severus know you're here yet?" Remus said looking at Harry then at Sirius.

"No. Harry was just about to knock on the door, when the two of you came around the corner." Sirius said.

"The door is open." Came Severus voice from the other side.

Remus and Sirius looked at each other.

"I still don't get why I have to be here. I've got better things to do."

"Like what, 'Mione? You've already got all the assignments done from last week and the ones for this week." Harry said.

"How about studying for his theory test that's next week?" Hermione replied.

"'Mione, we've made and then re-wrote notes for that and then had the Prefects quiz us. I'm going, Uncle Remus." Harry said as Remus pushed him in

Remus turned to Hermione. She sighed and went past him to go into the classroom.

"Don't push it, Sarah Jean." Remus whispered into her ear as she pasted him.

Arms still crossed Hermione only nodded her head in acknowledgement. Severus and Sirius both heard Remus.

"You told her?" Severus asked.


Hermione and Harry sat in the back of the classroom as Draco came over to them. Draco sat on the other side of Harry with his arms crossed. Severus, Remus, and Sirius went into Severus's inner office telling the teens to stay there.

"What's up, Drake?" Harry asked.

"Father knows."

"What?" Hermione asked.

"How?" Harry asked.

"Yeah, um… he and Uncle Severus have known for about a year."

"Wow, well at least we don't have to worry about telling him over Christmas break." Harry said.

"Yeah, but why didn't he say anything this summer? He had three months to tell me."

"Maybe he wants you to tell him, you know. When you're ready to tell him." Hermione said.

"What am I going to tell him, Hermione? 'Father, I just wanted you to know that one of my Friends is Harry Potter. We've been friends for a while now. Oh and two of his friends are also my friends as well.'?" Draco said.

"Why thank you for telling me, son." Came a voice from the front of the room.

"FATHER!" Draco shouted before falling off the bench.

Draco quickly got up off the ground and looked at his father. Harry and Hermione looked at Lucius Malfoy both of them silent.

"Good morning, children." Lucius said looking at the other two teens.

"Good Morning, sir." Was the reply.

"Father, why are you here?"

"Your mother found one of your books and thought you might need it so I came by to give it to you. Tell me, why were you out after curfew?"

"Umm…I was…"

"It's my fault, Mr. Malfoy. I didn't turn up last night after dinner and he, Ron and Hermione came looking for me." Harry said.

"I see." Lucius said.

"Father, are you staying for the morning?" Draco asked.

"I am. Harry, Severus wants you in his office." Lucius said.

"Yes, sir." Harry said moved past them and into the office shutting the door.

"Miss Granger, how do you like Hogwarts?"

"Very well, sir."

"That's good. Is my son behaving himself?"

"Father…"Draco mumbled out.

"Yes, Sir." Hermione said.

"Draco, I've talked with the Professor Dumbledore already and you and Harry are coming to the manor this for the weekend this weekend."

"Harry's coming? What for?"

"Sirius want to get Harry started on Wizarding Eittquite so he's ready to claim his heir rights when he's sixteen."

"Oh, Is Mother teaching him?"

"Yes, she is. Sirius, Severus, and I will be explaining the duties of an heir."

"You're not mad that Harry and I are friends?"

"No. I just wish you told me sooner."

Draco nodded and they started talking quietly. Hermione went over to the window that was charmed to look out above the lake. About twenty minutes later the office door opened and a teary eyed Harry came out. Lucius looked at Harry then at Draco. Harry had a pouting look on his face.

"What's wrong Mr. Snape?"

"Don't want to talk about it." Harry said as he sat way from them.

The three men in the office came out and noticed the changing mood.
