Chapter 1
Prologue

Andromeda Tonks' untimely death was a shock to them. Shortly after the Battle of Hogwarts, she had developed Dragon Pox and passed only months after receiving treatment. Little Teddy Lupin had been passed to an unready Harry, his godfather. Harry was not reluctant to take his godson. In fact, he was very determined to be a good godfather like Sirius had been, a good father like he knew his had been. But Harry wasn't prepared to be a parent having only lived 18 years. He's just a boy, as everyone said.

Of course Mrs. Weasley has loved Teddy like he was part of her family, much like she did Harry and Hermione. Harry was grateful he didn't really have to play the mother part of being Ted's one and only parent. Mrs. Weasley had done (pretty much) everything. Harry was also grateful, and admiring of, his girlfriend. Ginny was acting just like her mum had in the past, though she'd probably bruise you if you gave her this compliment. She was being a spectacular mother figure, and Harry couldn't help but picture the two of them with children of their own someday.

Mrs. Weasley would not stop pestering Harry about his upcoming school year. He, Hermione, and Ron were going back to Hogwarts to complete their final year and take their N.E.W.T.S. Mrs. Weasley insisted Teddy to remain at the Burrow, but Harry refused. He hated the idea of leaving his godson behind. He knows what it feels like to be left behind, to feel abandoned, and he would do everything in his power to make sure Teddy doesn't feel the same way. They were both orphans, and were connected as such. So, Teddy Tonks was going to accompany the trio onto the Hogwarts Express and Hogwarts.

"Harry, how exactly are you going to do this?" Hermione asked. Her eyes were fixed on the little creature sitting in her best friend's lap.

"To hell if I know." Harry said.

"Don't swear in front of him!" Ginny scolded.

"Sorry." Harry said, giving an apologetic smile. He, too, looked down at little Teddy Lupin. "You'll have to teach me how to be a parent between classes."


Yeah, short chapter. The idea just popped into my head in the shower when I should've been stressing over school (it's exam week!). Anyway, I haven't forgotten my other story, I'll just be multitasking because both stories intrigue me so well. Relationships will be Canon (as much as I don't like it sometimes) because otherwise, the second generation would not exist. No Albus or Lily or Rose or Scorpius. So yeah. Thanks for reading this little prologue. =)
