Chapter 15: Furious
The whole school was alive with how Sirius Black had escaped again but how this time he'd left his side of the story.
"I can't believe you actually saved him," Neville grinned putting his arms over Blaise and Harry's shoulders.
"I can't believe we're going to have to face father again," Draco groaned.
"He's furious," Harry said happily.
"Why are you happy about that?" Draco demanded, questioning his brother's sanity.
"Because it means we've done something right," Harry sniggered. "He's always furious when we do something good,"
Draco thought about it and decided he couldn't actually find evidence to prove his twin wrong.
They walked through the corridor and they were aware that many of the Gryffindors scurried away from them.
Flint and the rest of Slytherin house had shown the Gryffindors just why not to get on their bad side while the Deviants were holed in the Hospital Wing.
"I can't believe Flint actually pulled it off without being caught," Blaise snickered.
"He did it when Sirius escaped so I'm not surprised," Neville chuckled.
"You never did tell us, Sly, did you manage to pull the change off?" Draco asked idly as they entered the common room.
Blaise grinned and nodded.
"Indeed I did,"
"We'll have to go for a run one night during the holidays," Harry said with a smirk. "Go terrorise a few people, go on a few adventures and maybe even break into a few places we shouldn't be,"
The other three chuckled at his plan as they sat on the couches.
"Did you hear, Hadrian? Professor Lupin is a werewolf, how dreadful is that? Just think we've been in the same room as him since the beginning of the year. I'm glad he's resigned," Daphne said snootily as she sat down on his lap.
"What do you mean he's resigned?" Harry demanded, gritting his teeth at her.
"Weasley was in the Hospital wing when Lupin was brought in after the full moon, he heard the professors discussing it. It's all over school. I know one thing for sure if Lupin would have come back next year I would have refused to go anywhere near that classroom," Daphne stated with her nose up in the air.
Harry couldn't believe that even after the memory charm Ron had still been able to cause trouble.
"Greengrass, Hades might have to put up with you but the rest of us don't so do me a favour and bugger off," Blaise snapped.
The blonde haired girl looked affronted and with a huff she stormed away from them.
"I'm surprised to say that she hasn't actually being that much a pain this year," Harry said shaking his head.
"That will change, no doubt father will have both the idiots over most of the holidays," Draco sighed.
Remus stood sighing deeply as he entered his run down apartment in London.
It was tatty but he was thankful he had somewhere to live.
He looked around and noticed a glass and a bottle of Scotch sat open on his table.
"Come out Padfoot,"
Sirius came from around the corner with a grim smile on his face.
"If you mind me being here I'll go,"
Remus shook his head.
"Not at all, it'll be good to have some company again," he sighed feeling guilty at the betrayal he'd dealt his friend over the last thirteen years.
The two of them sat around talking and catching up for the next few hours.
"I have just one question for you Padfoot," Remus said slightly intoxicated.
"Shoot," Sirius said downing a his drink.
"Since when were you Hadrian Malfoy's Godfather?"
Sirius looked at his only living friend and surveyed him. He couldn't lie to him. They'd fallen into the mess they were in because they hadn't trusted each other all them years ago. He wasn't about to let that happen again.
"How goods your Occlumency?" Sirius quizzed with a sigh.
"Fine, it has to be to be able to keep the wolf at bay all the time," Remus shrugged looking both surprised and confused at the question.
"Hadrian Malfoy is our very own Harry Potter," Sirius said deciding just to blurt it out.
Remus dropped the glass he was lifting to his lips to the floor. The glass shattered and the liquid sprayed the two Marauders.
Sirius nodded grimly.
"Lucius beat me to the house. He must have known Voldemort was going to be there and he was the first one on the scene after it all happened. Harry was creating havoc with his magic because he was so upset and when Lucius picked him up he decided he'd make a better life for his nephew. When I entered the house, he told me that he wouldn't let the world put their problems on Harry's shoulders. That he'd raise him and let him have a normal childhood while the rest of the world grieved over the loss of the young family. No one except, Narcissa, Lucius and now you, know that Harry Potter is still alive. Hadrian himself believes he is very much Draco's twin and until Draco's seventeenth birthday he will continue to do so much to my displeasure,"
Remus was absolutely flabbergast.
He would have never thought that such a Malfoy could be the little boy he used to sit and play with when he was younger.
"Why did you ask about my Occlumency?" he demanded feeling completely out of his league.
"Because since they were eleven, the Deviants have done nothing but throw themselves head first into magic," Sirius said shaking his head.
Remus was absolutely shocked.
Sirius chuckled slightly and poured his friend another drink.
"Easy does it mate, you can't afford anymore greys,"
The twins stood in their father's office looking anywhere but at each other as their father ranted at them.
"You said you wouldn't tarnish our name, you said you wouldn't cross the line!" Lucius snarled.
His sons were unbelievable!
"We didn't, well not our line anyway," Harry snorted looking firmly at the wall opposite him.
He knew if he looked at his father he'd most probably laugh and that wasn't the best thing to do while Lucius was so mad.
"Your line is obviously not the most defined line," Lucius snapped, his hand twitching near his wand. "Not only that but both Parkinson and Greengrass have been on my back about your treatment of their daughters,"
"Because they're hags, we don't want to marry then," Draco huffed.
Lucius glowered at them.
Their immaturity was starting to grate on his nerves. Why was it they could change from the sons he was proud of into the sons he could happily throttle within the space of one meeting to the other?
"They will be your future wives and there is nothing you can do about it. You will either treat them how they deserve to be treated when they're over in the holidays or I will make you regret it," Lucius snarled. "Now get out of my sight,"
The boys exited together, still not daring to look at each other.
They didn't need to speak to know that they both thought the summer was going to completely suck.
AN: Well that's another one down, Book 4 chapter 1 is already up so I hope many of you will continue to read and review :)
psychoyoshi79 - I know i've missed Blaise so much in this story but alas it was needed :) You know I actually didn't think of the memory thing that way but it is actually a rather good point and so very true. The trio in the canon books don't really have much interaction with memories until GoF but because the Deviants grew up in the heart of the wizarding world they did. Good point! :D I know Ashanti does indeed lack the dramatic flare but the Slytherins are more subtle so it works for them. Plus they didn't have the bond with Buckbeak like they did in the PoA so they went with what they knew of :) Yep I totally agree with you about Pettigrew and he will definately meet his end its just a matter of when rather than if ;) Thanks for the review! :D
Pig-Rabbit-Suk - I know the chapter was delayed but i got it out as soon as i could and at least with this update you get both this chapter and the first chapter of book 4 :) hopefully that will make up for my tardiness :) I don't really watch much TV either, my laptop is my life but I record the programs i like and usually watch them when i can Nikita as just started up again so I'm pretty hyped up since Criminal Minds finished a few weeks ago :)
Dragons-Twilight1992 - Haha I'm glad you're enjoying it :) Last chapter for this Book but the first chapter for the next book is already up :D
