Simply Irresistible Keeperoliver Chapter 1

A/N: Well, here it is, as promised. I hope you enjoy it. It will be an adult oriented tale, and the first chapter will be sad, but after it will lighten up. I fought with myself about pairings, and I wanted this to be a Harry and Luna pairing, but Ginny being with someone else just doesn't sit with me. So she will join H/L later in the story. How much later I don't know. It all depends on Luna. I will also be introducing a new character in this story. Richard Prewitt. He will have a familiar that is a werebit. A rabbit that eats raw meat. Not a killer, just a meat eater. This is for you Brother. As always, Ollie the Keeper.

The group of DA members sat in the RoR listening to Potterwatch. Lee had just finished his talk with someone codenamed silver streak. No one there knew who it may be. Lee had one more thing to say.

"I believe we have come to the moment we all feared. Before it starts I would like you all to hear a song of inspiration and hope. It is by a group named The Steve Miller Band. The title is 'Make The World Turn Around'. Please take it to heart.

I don't want to live in a world of darkness.

I want to live in a world of light.

I don't want to live in a world that's heartless.

I want to live in a world of sight.

Well you know, I want to make the world turn around.

Living in a world of justice.

Living in a world of shame.

Living in a world of freedom.

Living in a world of pain.

Well you know, I want to make the world turn around.

Turn the darkness into light.

Turn the hunger into life.

Turn the wrong into right.

Put an end to the strife

Turn the blindness into sight.

Save a human life.

Make the world turn around.

I want to live in a world of gladness.

I want to know what your heart is made of.

Don't want to live in a world of sadness.

I want to live in a world of love.

Well you know, I want to make the world turn around.

Living in a world of justice.

Living in a world of light.

Living in a world of freedom.

Living in a world of sight.

I want to send a message,

To every boy and girl.

I want to send a message,

About the world.

We've got to build it up,

Stop tearing it down.

We've got to build it up,

Make the world turn around.

Lee ended the broadcast by saying, "I know I am going to lose friends tonight, people who I care about and before that happens I want everyone who knows me to say a prayer for all who are about to expose them selves to the terror of the past twenty or so years. My heart goes with you. And Harry, if your listening, I have this to say. KICK THE BASTARDS ASS. Thank you and good night to you all.

Lee's words echoed in every ones ears as they cried over the dead. Colin Creevy, 16 years old, should not even have been in the fighting. No one knew how he got past the Professors.

Ernie McMillan. 17 years old. A member of Dumbledore's Army.

Fred Weasley. 19 years old. A brother, a friend and so much more.

Nymphadora Tonks Lupin. 26 years old. A friend, a wife, and a mother.

Remus John Lupin. 34 years old. A friend, a husband, a father. But most of all, a Marauder to the end.

The list went on and on. Fifty one in all. But to pay tribute to the fight the light side made, more than two hundred of the death eaters died, to include Tom Riddle, Bellatrix LeStrange. Rodolphus LeStrange. Rebastion LeStrange. Fenrir Greyback. Amycus and Electo Carrow. Once again, the list went on and on, much longer than the list of the light.

But the biggest question to the whole evening was why? What was the reason behind the whole war. Pure blood supremacy. That made no sense since Voldemort was a half blood. Malfoy knew this, so the rest of the DE squad should as well. So once again why? A play of power? An attempted take over of the magical world? Slaves? The truth behind it all may never be known. There would always be theorists. Always conjecture. Controversy. It was inevitable. One of them may even be the truth, but who would know?

The truth was that more than 250 people died that evening. None would be coming back. Families were left with members missing.

The final toll was the Longbottoms lost two. The Tonks lost two. Three if you count Remus. The Weasleys one, Fred, but Molly lost three with Fabian and Gideon Prewitt. However, Molly would find out shortly that Fabian was secretly married prior to his death, and that he had a son named Richard Gideon Prewitt.

Harry had lost the most, as he lost more than family. He did not even want to think about what he lost.

He was most interested in passing out at the moment. He could no longer stand. He was beaten, bruised, scarred, sore, tired, and stinking to the point he could not stand to be around himself. He left for the area he called his second home, Gryffindor tower, hoping it was still intact. Upon entering the dorm he saw a mess, but it was intact. He made his way to the room where he slept. "Kreacher!' he called out.

With a pop, the house elf appeared, "You called Master Harry sir."

"Yes Kreacher. I was wondering if you could get me some clean clothes, and something to eat and drink. Then if you would burn these rags for me, I would appreciate it. I am going to take a long hot bath, then I am going to try and eat something, and then sleep for as long as it takes to catch up on what I have missed for the past year."

Harry heard Kreacher laugh. The first time he had ever heard it. He wouldn't mind hearing more of it.

"As you wish Master Harry. Kreacher will do as you have asked." and he popped out of the room.

Harry went to the lav and filled the tub while he finished undressing. Finally able to soak, he could feel the aches and pains of his body slowly subsiding. A few of his cuts stung when he got them wet, but it didn't last long. He got out of the tub, wrapped the towel around his waist and went to his bed to see fresh clothes, and a tray of sandwiches on the night table. He thanked Kreacher in his mind and snorted when he heard Kreacher say your welcome in his mind.

Harry slept for 36 hours. When he finally made it out of bed, he found the clothes that Kreacher brought to him and donned them. He then left to see who he could find. The only person in the common room was Ginny. He approached her and startled her when he told her hi.

"UH Hi Harry."

"Look Ginny I have to tell you..."

"Save it Harry. You don't have to apologize to me. I know why you did what you did. It took me a while, but I finally understood."

"So do you think we could get back together again then?"

When Ginny didn't answer right away, Harry knew what the answer was going to be when she did answer. "Harry, I don't want to be hurt again. I have another year to finish with school. I want to try out for the Harpies. I don't want to be tied down right now. So I think it would be best if you and I leave it as it is for now. Maybe later we could try, but that shouldn't stop you from finding someone else if you wish. I'm sorry Harry."

"Nah, don't worry about it Ginny. I'll survive, like I have for the past seven years. Excuse me while I go and try to find something to eat."

"Do you want some company?"

"No, I'll be fine."

"Harry We can still be friends can't we?"

"If that is what you want."

"That didn't sound very convincing to me."

"No, I suppose it didn't. Bye Ginny."

Ginny felt Harry didn't want to be just friends. She hated to do that but she didn't want to get back with Harry then leave for school. She knew he wasn't coming back to finish his last year. She couldn't take him leaving her again. Or in this case, her leaving him.

Harry didn't go towards the Hall. He went instead toward the only area in the school he knew would be unblemished. However, he did not get very far when he heard crying coming from behind some rubble. His first though being someone was hurt.

The rubble hid a a door to one of the unused classrooms.

What he found in there would be the last thing he wanted to see. Luna Lovegood hugging her legs, crying.

"Luna, what's the matter? Are you hurt? Is there something I can do?"

Luna wiped her eyes and her nose on her sleeve. "I'm alright thank you Harry."

"Please Luna, I just found you crying and shaking, while hugging your legs. Now please tell me what the matter is."

Luna lost it there. She threw herself at Harry for him to hug her. Her crying started back. For ten minutes she cried. Then her tears started to subside. She pulled slightly away from him but stayed in his arms. "Neville just told me he found someone else, Hannah Abbott. Daddy is being put in Azkaban for two years for turning his back on friends. Our house is gone. Harry I have no place to live, and no one to go to."

"What about the Weasleys?" asked Harry.

"I couldn't bother them with my problems after what has happened."

Harry knew she was right. Especially with Hermione going there to stay while waiting to go get her parents. "Then you will just have to move in with me. Kreacher!"

Once again the elf answered to his master's call.

"Kreacher, is Black Manor liveable?"

"No sir, it may never be there again. Death Eaters did much damage to it once you left."

"Damn, OK then can you take Luna and I to Gringotts. I have to get some money. We have to find a place to live."

"Yes Master Harry, Kreacher can do that." then the next thing Harry and Luna knew they were standing in the middle of the banks main room. Harry felt sick the moment he looked up. It had been cleaned up since he last saw it four days ago. It was still damaged however. Then he felt the stare coming from the Goblins as they walked up to a teller. "Please tell you manager that Harry Potter is here to make restitution. I assume full responsibility for all damages made to the bank, and will accept any punishment they wish to present."

The Goblin nodded with out saying a word and left them standing there. It wasn't long before they were approached by a well dressed Goblin with the look of importance flowing from him.

"You take a very bad chance coming here Mr. Potter. The Goblins are not happy with what you have done."

"I know sir. But I have to face up to what I have done. However, before you pass sentence, would you please allow me to draw money out of my vault and help Miss Lovegood find a place to live. She is alone and has no funds to work with."

"I am sorry sir, but not until you hear what we have to say. Please follow me."

He led them to a chamber in a hallway where this Goblin had his office. He sat at a large desk. He had Harry, Luna and Kreacher take a seat. "Mr. Potter, We have tried to find you for the past year, with no success."

"But sir, I just did this four days ago. Before that I had never done anything to warrant a search."

"Mr. Potter, forget the damage. It has already been payed for by the Ministry as a casualty of the war. We have three wills that need to be read to you. Your family, Sirius Black, and Albus Dumbledore."

"I have Already received my part of Professor Dumbledore's will sir."

"That was a second will set up by Mr. Dumbledore should he die prior to you completing your education. This is his original will. It has already been read, and yours is the last part to be filled. In it, he left you with his home in Sudsbury. The keys to the home are right here. He also wished to pass on his regret for not being fully open with you about what you had to face. Next is the Black Family will which has also been read. In it, he left you with everything. He did however ask that you bring Andromeda and Nymphadora Tonks back into the Black Family. He also left you Black Manor." He looked up and saw Harry crying. "Is something wrong Mr. Potter?"

"Nymphadora Tonks died two days ago sir."

"I'm sorry Mr. Potter, I didn't know. Please forgive my callous words."

"You couldn't have known sir. Please continue with what you need to get done."

"As you wish sir. Finally we have the Potter will. Since it has never been read, I shall do so now."

"This is the last will and testament of James Charlus and Lily Marie Potter. Being of sound mind and Body we express our wishes that everything we own be passed on to our only living heir, Harry James Potter. It is nothing compared to what we were not able to give him, our love. We say this as we wrote it preparing for could be a possibility. Not being there for you as you grew Harry. We are sorry for not being able to be there for you when you first entered Hogwarts. For everything you encountered in your life. Just remember that we both loved you Harry, very much. Please take care of yourself, and find you someone to love and adore you. To share you life with you. To bear your children. Good bye my precious Harry. James and Lily Potter." and the will was folded and handed to Harry.

"Now if you will look over these documents to see what you have Harry, we can get you out here and you can find a place for Miss Lovegood to live."

Harry checked both His parents and Sirius' will. He found three residences. Potter Manor was the one that caught his attention. It was in the middle of London. He also saw that his total in the bank amounted to over 35 Million Galleons. He took the keys to all four properties, even though only one had the possibility of livable. Grimmauld Place and Godric's hollow would never be lived in again. Dumbledore's home was maybe an option if Potter Manor was not liveable. That would be their next stop.

Kreacher took them to an area he knew that would keep them from being seen. It was about a fifteen minute walk to the Manor. Kreacher used his magic to make himself invisible. When they neared the location, Harry and Luna couldn't believe the homes they were seeing. If Potter Manor was half the home these were. They would be pleased. They walked past an empty lot and found themselves in front of a huge mansion. But the number on it was wrong. Somehow they missed their home. They walked back to the empty lot and then Harry remembered what he needed to see his home. "I welcome myself,Harry James Potter, Luna Selena Lovegood and House Elf Kreacher to Potter Manor."

There before them stood the largest Manor on the block. Three floors high in the middle and four high on each end. Harry had to catch Luna as she passed out in his arms. Kreacher hopped with excitement as he popped out of their presence. He was exploring before Harry and Luna even made their way to the mansion. Harry wondered what he would see when he entered.

As he made his way up the path to the mansion, visions of breathtaking beauty filled his mind. Splendor and a regal look. He opened the door to the manor, and holding Luna up, he entered the home.

It was not what he expected. The first room they entered was gray and bleak. It showed where tapestries once covered the walls, as did armor, banners and shields. What had happened to the coverings, he didn't know.

Harry set Luna down on a seat, after he removed the material that covered it to keep it free from dust. For some reason, the furniture was still in excellent shape. Once Luna was settled, Harry called for Kreacher. "Yes Master Harry?"

"Kreacher, is the rest of the house like this?"

"No sir. The rest of the house is bright and colorful. There is one room that Kreacher is not sure of it's use."

"I will look at it when Luna snaps out of it. Did you find the things that covered the walls in this room?"

"No Master Harry. I have checked every room, and found nothing."

"Thank you Kreacher. Why don't you check to see if all the furniture is serviceable in all the rooms."

"I have already done that sir, and all is fine."

"Once again you have done a fine job Kreacher. Why don't I try to wake Luna, then you can join us as we check out the rest of the manor." and Harry used the Ennervate on Luna and woke her up. "Luna, are you OK?"

"I'm sorry Harry, but the manor was a little more than I expected. I'm fine really."

"It was a little more than I expected as well. Then when I entered, I walked into this emptiness of a room. Kreacher told me that the rest of the house is fine, except for one room he didn't know what the use of it was."

"Well then, maybe we should go see for our selves. Surely there must be some explanation for it."

The three of them made their way through the manor, checking each room as they passed. It was as Kreacher said. The rest of the manor was beautiful. It was as if the first room was some sort of conference room for battle or strategic planning.

When Kreacher brought them to the room that he didn't understand, he opened the door, and Harry and Luna looked in to see a room that was bare of any furniture and was round like a cylinder. Harry asked Luna to stay where she was, while he checked it out. Once he stepped into the room, it began to move.

Harry had to walk to keep from falling on his face. The faster he moved, the faster the room moved. Harry had to slow his pace in order for the room to slow down. Once it stopped, he left the room with a huge grin on his face. "It's an exercise room. Looks like I'll be able to build my strength back up, with out worry of the weather dampening my spirit. What say we go back down stairs and think about what we have here."

They got back to the room where they started their tour. "Kreacher, why don't you and Luna see what you can do to liven this room up some. I will grant you access to my vault and purchase what ever you and Luna need to complete this. In the meantime, why don't we all go get something to eat back at Hogwarts. I seem to have built up quite an appetite." And they left for the school.

Harry went to Professor McGonagall to explain what his plans were, and she wished him luck, and thanked him for everything he did. He also told Ron, Hermione, Molly and Arthur what his plans were. Molly was upset that he would not be staying with them, but she understood his reasoning.

Once back at the manor, Harry bid Kreacher good night and he and Luna walked back upstairs to the bedrooms they had selected. Harry hugged Luna, and she kissed him on the cheek. "Thank you Harry for all you have done for me. I don't know what I would have done if you hadn't helped me."

"Luna, There is no need to thank me. I did it because I care for my friends, and you are my friend. Now good night, and I will see you tomorrow. I have things I have to do, so I may be gone when you get up." and Harry left for his room. Luna walked into her room, and leaned back against her door, smiling at her good fortune. Harry had called her his friend, but she felt like more than that. He was more her knight in shining armor. She went to bed wearing the same smile.

A/N: Hello my friends. I know what you are thinking, I have already done this, but I had to remove the M rated version to protect myself from being removed from writing. This will be my T rated version, ans will have suggestions of the past version, without the content. I will try to fill the gaps with more story. I hated to drop this story, so I am going to correct my mistake, and put back to print one of my favorite stories. As always, Ollie the Keeper.
