Chapter 13 – The Elf, The Rat, and The Owl

Harry woke the next day with a groan. Draco handed him the potions to help make his head stop spinning and hurting. Harry quickly drained them. When he was done, he headed for the showers to get cleaned up.

"Would you care to join me?" he asked Draco seductively.

""You know I would," said Draco with a laugh.

"By the way," said Harry. "Your anniversary gift will be delivered later today. I am sorry that I slept through our day yesterday."

"What did you get me?" asked Draco.

"You will have to wait to find out when it gets here," said Harry. "Your other gift is waiting downstairs with Hagrid."

"So you got me a pet of some sort," said Draco.

"Yes I did," said Harry. "It is the cutest little thing. We just have to convince Nagini that it isn't a snack. I am sure she will understand."

"She better," said Draco. "I was happy that she guarded your sleep when we saved her from Voldemort. She is a very well tempered snake."

"She likes you," said Harry. "She enjoys her freedom. She never bothered the students, and she is happy to be able to go where she wants. Hagrid feeds her rodents he catches in his garden. She visits him just about on a daily basis."

"I am sure Hagrid enjoys that," said Draco. "He is awfully fond of dangerous animals."

"Speaking of dangerous animals," said Harry with a sly look. "I have another snake for you to play with."

"Why lover," said Draco. "You are such a naughty boy."

"Why don't you come here and discipline me?" suggested Harry.

"I think I will enjoy that very much," said Draco.

Their love making session lasted well over two hours. Many of the other professor knew where the boys were as Dobby told them they were taking a shower together. Many smiled behind their hands at the wink the elf gave to them. Later when Harry and Draco appeared in the Great Hall, there were catcalls and whistles. Both men stuck their tongues out at everyone and sat down.

"How about we wrap up the staff meeting today so that everyone who wants to go home for a few weeks can," suggested Harry.

There was an echo of assent around the room. Only a handful of people would be staying in the castle. Among them were Harry, Draco, Minerva, Hermione, Luna, Narcissa, and Severus. Poppy was staying as well to keep the boys "from doing bodily harm to them selves".

"I have a proposition for the upcoming school year," said Harry. "As we know, we were able to secure a place for the pre Hogwarts schooling. I have four names I want to put out for your consideration to work there."

"What are the classes?" asked Minerva.

"Pureblood Relations, Muggle Relations, Magical Introduction, and normal reading, writing, arithmatic and things like that," said Harry.

"Who are you going to ask to help with those classes?" asked Severus.

"I was thinking that Neville can head up Pureblood Relations," said Harry. "Ron can handle Magical Introduction, Dudley can handle Muggle Relations, and Agusta Longbottom can handle normal schooling for reading and writing."

"That would give Gran something to do," said Neville. "I can talk to her for you. I am sure she will say yes."

"I would appreciate that Neville," said Harry.

"I will gladly help out," said Ron. "You know you can count on the Weasley family."

"I will help out also," said Dudley. "It sounds like you want me to work with Muggleborns to get them used to the idea of being magical."

"That is exactly what you will be doing," said Harry. "The goal behind the pre school is to let the children know that it doesn't matter if you are pure blood or not. It will help bring unity to the different types of witches and wizards that eventually will come to school."

"Minerva and Severus," said Harry. "I will need you two to handle the letters to parents explaining what we are doing and why. You have more experience with this than I do."

"That will not be a problem," said Minerva jotting down a note on the subject.

"I am also going to be rearranging the courses and electives this year," said Harry.

"Just give us the run down Harry," said Hermione. "We will let you know what we like and dislike when the time comes."

Harry glanced around the hall. He did not see Sybil Trelawney anywhere.

"I am going to dismiss Sybil at the end of the next school year," said Harry. "We all know that she is not a true Seer. She knows nothing that doesn't come from a book about the art of Divination. We all know that Luna is a true Seer. She has a natural talent for all forms of Divination. I need Sybil to remain long enough for Luna to graduate. That is if you are willing to accept the post."

Harry smiled in Luna's direction.

"I will be glad to Harry," said Luna.

"We need to keep this to ourselves until later," said Harry. "We don't want her quitting before Luna graduates. What NEWTS are you taking Luna?"

COMC, Divination, Charms, Potions, and Herbology," she replied. "I was going to continue with Transfiguration, but my visions keep getting in the way and the work load is too hard for me."

"Would you like private lessons?" asked Minerva. "I can make sure that you get all the help you need. You are making the required grade to continue with my class."

"No thank you," said Luna. "I think I have enough to do already. I appreciate the offer though."

"Just let us know if you change your mind," said Harry.

"What other things are you changing?" asked Pomona.

"Well your classes will be the same," said Harry. "I will have Remus teach History of Magic. It is time to get rid of Professor Binns. He is so boring that Hermione was the only one able to stay wake in his classes. "We will make Etiquette classes an elective. Third year and above can take the class. Narcissa will continue to teach the class. I will ask Bill Weasley to come and teach Arithmancy. When I viewed his scores, he had one of the highest I have seen except for Hermione."

"Yes I remember that," said Minerva. "What else are you going to add?"

"Well," said Harry. "I want to offer Healing as an elective. Poppy can you handle teaching it as well as your normal duties around the castle?"

"It should not be a problem," said Poppy. "We can always add a small classroom to the infirmary. That way they can learn as we go along. So the answer is yes. I will teach healing."

"Great," said Harry. "Severus I was wondering if you would be willing to teach Occlumency to anyone who wishes to learn it."

"That is fine with me," said Severus. "Just as long as they understand that I will not tolerate stupidity in the class."

"Well Occlumency is nothing to play around with," said Harry. "Minerva I want you to continue offering Animagus training. That class seems to go very well and the students seem to enjoy it. As we know not everyone can be an Animagus. Those like the first of us you taught caught on quick. You may continue to be lucky and others can master it quickly."

"Yes," said Minerva. "That will not be a problem. We are still just working with sixth and seventh year's right?"

"Yes I think anyone younger than that will be harder to get through," said Harry. "Last but not least I will be teaching Legilimency and Wandless magic. Again it will only be sixth and seventh years. I can teach all students interested using two days a week. That way it will not interfere with my Head Master duties."

"Everything that you have said sounds like a well thought out plan," said Pomona. "You have my support."

Slowly everyone around the table gave their approval of the ideas.

"I will have everything written up and distributed to the rest of the staff within a few days," said Hermione.

"Thanks Mione," said Harry. "Hagrid, can you please bring in Draco's Anniversary present for me please?"

"Would you also bring mine in also?" asked Draco with a smirk on his face. "Didn't think I would forget our Anniversary did you Harry?"

"Of course not," Harry replied.

He knew that Arthur and Molly were setting up Draco's other gift at that very moment. He made sure that Draco did not feel when the Weasleys passed through the wards.

"I have a second gift for you as well," said Draco. "It came to me as I was watching you in your sleep last night. Aunt Petunia helped me get the music and lyrics to the song."

"I am all ears," said Harry.

The rest of the staff looked immediately interested. Draco cleared his throat and twitched his fingers. The music came to life immediately and he started to sing.

I could stay awake just to hear you breathingWatch you smile while you are sleepingWhile you're far away and dreamingI could spend my life in this sweet surrenderI could stay lost in this moment foreverWhere every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep'Cause I'd miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never doI'd still miss you baby and I don't want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beatingAnd I'm wondering what you're dreamingWondering if it's me you're seeingThen I kiss your eyes and thank God we're togetherI just wanna stay with you in this moment forever, forever and ever

I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep'Cause I'd miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never doI'd still miss you baby and I don't want to miss a thing

I don't wanna miss one smile, I don't wanna miss one kissI just wanna be with you, right here with you, just like thisI just want to hold you close, feel your heart so close to mineAnd just stay here in this moment for all the rest of time

Don't wanna close my eyes, don't wanna fall asleep'Cause I'd miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never doI'd still miss you baby and I don't want to miss a thing

I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleep'Cause I'd miss you baby and I don't wanna miss a thing'Cause even when I dream of you the sweetest dream would never doI'd still miss you baby and I don't want to miss a thing

I don't wanna close my eyes, I don't wanna fall asleepYeah, I don't wanna miss a thing

Harry stood up and embraced his lover and husband.

"That was beautiful," said Harry. "I love you so much."

"I love you to Harry," said Draco.

"I have yer presents here," said Hagrid.

He took out a young badger and handed it to Draco. It had a green bow around its neck. From there he handed Harry a lion cub. It had a silver bow around its neck. Both boys were delighted by the thoughtfulness of the gifts. Harry called for Nagini and showed her the young animals. He explained to her that they were now a part of the family. She answered that she would help keep them safe. Harry translated her words to the rest of the group. Harry transformed into his lion Animagus and talked with the cub. He explained what it needed to do and how to behave with humans. The cub responded by grabbing his tail between his teeth and pulling. Draco and the rest of the group all laughed at this. They thought it was a sight to see as the lion cub was yanking on Harry's tail. Eventually Harry swatted the cub away and transformed back into his human self. He was rubbing his bottom much to the amusement of the staff.

"Those that are leaving for vacation better leave now before I change my mind," said Harry wincing as he sat down.

The tone in Harry's voice told everyone that he meant what he said.

"Poppy," said Harry. "I think I am bleeding. Can you give me a quick checkup?"

"Yes," she said. "Better come with me now. We don't want an infection setting in."

Harry and the school nurse headed out. Twenty minutes later, Harry went in search of Draco.

"How about we have a dinner date by the lake like we did on our first date?" he asked.

"That sounds wonderful," replied Draco. "You go shower and change and I will talk with Dobby and Winky."

"I will take care of that," said Hermione. "You go and get ready as well. Why don't both of you wear the exact same outfit you wore on that date? It will make the memory all the better."

Both Harry and Draco were delighted by this. They went up and took a shower. Hermione thought it was amusing that they had already taken one. Draco was delighted when he saw his new desk and all of the new slots and things for his ink and quills. He quickly gave Harry a kiss on the lips and raced upstairs.

"I have never seen two people who enjoy taking a shower or bath as much as they do," Hermione said to Pomona who laughed.

"I think I will stick around until tomorrow," said Pomona. "They will sing again. I am sure of it. I want to hear what they will sing to one another."

"You do realize we act like a bunch of voyeur's right?" asked Hermione with a laugh.

"Who cares," said Minerva. "They have very beautiful singing voices and I for one hope they sing to each other until the day they pass from this world to the next one."

The other witches and wizards all nodded in agreement. Hermione handed out assignments and everyone rushed to get things set up for Harry and Draco.

"How are you feeling Hermione?" asked Narcissa. "You are now in your sixth month correct?"

"Yes I was inseminated on January first," she said. "So yesterday I entered my sixth month. I feel like a whale."

"You are very lovely," said Narcissa. "You have such a glow about you. I am looking forward to seeing the babies. I am sure that the combination of the three of you will be very beautiful in the babies."

"Thanks Narcissa," said Hermione.

Later that evening, Harry and Draco made their way to the location of their first date. Everything was exactly like it was on their first date.

"Shall we dance?" asked Harry recalling the conversation clearly.

"There is no music," said Draco playing along.

"That is easily fixed," said Harry continuing the memory.

He flicked his hand and the music started. He grabbed Draco around the waist and as the two started dancing on the spot. Harry started to sing his first love song to Draco once again.

Dancing in the dark, middle of the nightTaking your heart and holding it tightEmotional touch, touching my skinAnd asking you to do what you've been doing all over again

Oh, it's a beautiful thingDon't think I can keep it all inI just gotta let you knowWhat it is that won't let me go

It's your love, it just does something to meIt sends a shock right through meI can't get enough and if you wonderAbout the spell I'm under, oh, it's your love

Better than I was, more than I amAnd all of this happened by taking your handAnd who I am now is who I wanted to beAnd now that we're together I'm stronger than ever, I'm happy and free

Oh, it's a beautiful thingDon't think I can keep it all in, noAnd if you asked me why I changedAll I gotta do is say your sweet name

It's your love, it just does something to meIt sends a shock right through meI can't get enough and if you wonderAbout the spell I'm under, oh, it's your love, oh, baby

Oh, it's a beautiful thingDon't think I can keep it all inI just gotta let you knowWhat it is that won't let me go

It's your love, it just does something to meIt sends a shock right through meI can't get enough and if you wonderAbout the spell I'm under, oh, it's your loveIt's your love, it's your love

As they did that night, Harry and Draco quickly undressed and made love to one another right there on the bank of the lake. Once their passion was satiated for the moment, Harry grabbed their shoes just like he did the last time and they headed for the castle. Dobby and Winky quickly banished the items back to the castle.

Harry and Draco were locked into one another as they passed though the corridors towards their room. Hermione and Minerva giggled softly as they passed.

"It is just like the last time," said Hermione. "They are so into each other that they do not see anyone else."

"I hope to be around for those two for a very long time," said Minerva smiling. "They make me feel so young when they are around."

"I will tell you a secret," said Hermione. "You have to swear that you will not tell anyone else for now."

"I promise," said Minerva.

"I think I know who has caught the eye of Severus," whispered Hermione dramatically.

Together both women put their heads together to discuss what Hermione had witnessed. They laughed at the thought, but both knew that it was highly possible.

"Let's keep an eye on them and if they need it give them a nudge," said Minerva.

"Agreed," said Hermione. "Can you help me to my room? I am sure Ginny is waiting for me and my feet feel frumpy."

"No problem," said Minerva.

Together the two headed up the stairs to the twin tower of Harry and Draco's.

Dobby and Winky were sitting down and talking about Harry and Draco. Hedwig came upon the elves and was severely agitated. Both elves used their own brand of magic to talk to the bird. What they discovered was very disturbing.

"We is can catch him," said Winky. "Harry Potter's owl can fly around and grab him. We can bind him in his rat form and bring him to Harry Potter."

We is catching him," agreed Dobby. "We is taking him to Professor Snape though. We is not wanting to disturb Harry and Draco."

"You is leading us," said Winky to Hedwig. "Together we is catching us a rat."

Hedwig hooted in reply and took flight. The elves used their magic to keep her in sight. She flew for a few minutes until she saw her target. She dove out of the air and stunned Wormtail. He squealed and rolled over. Before he could do anything, he saw Dobby and Winky. He tried to transform into his human self.

"NO!" shouted Dobby. "YOU IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE!"

Winky snapped her fingers and a cage appeared around Pettigrew.

"You is NEVER hurting Harry Potter again," she said pointing at the squealing rat in the cage.

Together, they vanished with a pop and reappeared outside of Severus' room. They knocked on the door and waited until he came to the door.

"Dobby and Winky right?" he said. "What can I help you with? Harry and Draco are not here."

"We is knowing Professor Snape Sir," said Dobby. "We is coming to you because we is not wanting to disturb Harry and Draco."

"OK," said Severus. "What do you need? I will help you if I can. Is anyone ill?"

"No Professor Snape," said Winky. "We is wanting to bring you something. We is not wanting this to every hurt Harry Potter again."

She snapped her fingers and the cage with Wormtail appeared on the floor at Severus' feet. He bent over and picked up the cage. He gave a gasp when he realized who it was that was in the cage.

"You caught this vermin by yourselves?" he asked.

"Harry Potter's owl is helping," said Dobby. "We is figuring we should come to you first."

"You have both done very well," said Severus examining the terrified rat. "Both of you will receive a reward for this. Go get some rest. I will take it from here."

Both elves bowed to Severus and disappeared with a pop. Severus lifted his wand and sent a patronus to Harry and Draco's room.

"I hate to disturb you," said the raven to the boys. "It would be in your best interest to meet me in the Great Hall. The sooner you get there the better."

With that the raven disappeared. Harry and Draco quickly got dressed. They could hear Severus' magically enhanced voice calling all professors to the Great Hall. Within a few minutes everyone arrived in various stage of dress.

"What has happened?" asked Harry. "Is anyone hurt? I have not felt anyone pass through the wards. WAIT! Someone new IS here."

"Oh yes," said Severus. "I did not expect him to make the same mistake twice."

He lifted his wand and cancelled the spell on the cage. With a second flick of his wand, Wormtail was transforming in mid air. When the little man was standing there, Harry lost control. He jumped on the man and started punching him where ever he could get a hit in.

Neville, Ron, and Hagrid all grabbed Harry and pulled him off the man. Hermione used the freezing spell and caught him before he could run. Once Harry calmed down, he walked over and unfroze Peter's head.

"I ought to kill you for what you have done to me," snarled Harry. "First you betrayed my parents to Voldemort. That resulted in their deaths. Then you got my Godfather thrown into Azkaban for years for a crime you committed. With you returning and helping Voldemort come back to his body it helped contribute to his death. From there you have the audacity to sneak into my home and almost killed my husband. With all of that against you, why should I let you live?"

"Harry," said Ginny. "Call my dad. You are the only one with the power to lower the wards for the Aurors to apparate in. Let my dad handle this."

"How did you get him?" Harry asked Severus.

"According to Dobby and Winky," said Severus. "Between them and Hedwig they were able to spot and capture him. I have promised them a huge reward for this."

"Thank you," said Harry.

"I will lower the wards and keep a look out for intruders," he continued. "While I am doing that, someone contact Arthur and Kingsley. Hurry though. I don't want the wards down any longer than necessary."

"Lower them now," said Minerva pointing her wand and sending a patronus.

Harry raised his hands and lowered the wards. Immediately there were several pops as Arthur, Kingsley, Moody, and Tonks apparated right to the Great Hall. Once they were there, Harry let his hands fall and felt the wards back into place.

"Remind me to teach you how to do that," Harry said to Draco.

Severus and Minerva were telling the Aurors and Minister of Magic what was going on. After apologizing for disturbing them so late, the whole story unfolded. Moody and Tonks were circling Pettigrew.

"I think he should be changed back into a rat and kept in a cage that will not allow him to leave or for anyone to rescue him," said Moody.

Nagini came into the Great Hall to see what all the noise was about. With her were Hedwig, Apollo, Artemis, Chaos, and Nicky. Harry had decided to name his lion cub Chaos and Draco decided to name his badger Nicky.

"We have a zoo," said Moody pointing to the animals.

"This is our extended family," explained Harry. "Salazar and I managed to convince Nagini that she would be safer and healthier here."

"You mean this snake used to belong to Voldemort?" asked Tonks.

"She is a delightful being," said Minerva. "She does very well with the students and she is best friends with Hagrid."

"I can imagine," said Arthur with a chuckle. "We will trust you on this Harry."

"I will let you go from the freezing spell," said Harry to Peter. "It is not wise for you to run. You can not apparate out of here, and we have all the holes and tunnels blocked. If you try to run, it will be all the worse for you."

Peter Pettigrew looked around. He still had a trick or two up his sleeve. Potter may think he could not get away, but he would as soon as he was in his rat form.

Harry quickly released the freeze spell. Immediately Wormtail transformed into his rat form and tried to flee. With one quick strike, Nagini bit him. Her venom flowed though his rat form quickly. Everyone watched as Wormtail started to transform out of his rat form and into his human self. He twitched and started turning blue. With a second strike, Nagini bit him a second time. Every human sat there with a shocked look on their face. Within a few moments, Wormtail died from the venom in his veins.

"He was fixing to escape using magic from my former Master," she hissed to Harry. "I could not let him escape to cause you more pain."

Harry translated to everyone what she was saying. When he was done, Harry knelt next to the body and began to search it. When he got to Peter's throat he saw a silver collar looking device. With a quick incantation, the collar started to glow blue.

"It is a portkey," said Harry. "I can do one of two things. I can let it take him back to Voldemort as a warning, or I can stop it. The choice is yours Arthur."

"Let him go back to Voldemort," said Arthur. "Let it be a warning to him."

Harry waved his hand and let the magic speed up. In moments, Wormtail's body was gone. Harry knelt and waited. He held out a hand to Severus and Draco. Within moments, he could feel the wrath of Voldemort pounding in his head. Draco pulled out a vial of potion while Severus opened Harry's mouth. When Voldemort was this angry he could still hurt Harry. The potion was designed to triple his shields on his mind. Harry swallowed the potion and sagged against Draco.

"I hate when he does that," said Harry.

"Well at least this time he didn't knock you out cold," said Severus.

"I am a bit shaky, but other than that I feel fine," said Harry. "Poppy if you could check to make sure, I would appreciate it."

She nodded her head and pulled out her wand. She ran it over him and to her relief there was no damage.

"You will probably have a head ache in a few minutes," she said. "Thank goodness Draco always keeps a supply for that on hand."

"I trust you will handle everything from here?" Harry asked. "I would really like to go lay down for a bit and enjoy the rest of my Anniversary.

"Go," said Hermione and Ginny. "We will deal with everything."

"I will owl you the reports tomorrow," said Kingsley. "All you have to do is read them and sign them."

Harry nodded his head and Draco and he left the hall. After taking a potion to prevent the head ache, Harry and Draco spent the night in pure ecstasy.

AUTHOR'S NOTE – I will end this chapter on that note. The moral of this chapter is that no matter how big or small you are, no matter what size and shape you are, that anyone and everyone can be a winner. I personally wanted to see someone small and inconsequential do something great in this chapter. The fact that Dobby, Winky, and Hedwig caught Wormtail shows the strength in places that you least expect it. Having Nagini kill Wormtail tells everyone that even those that were once considered evil can do great things. Sorry about not telling you who Severus is interested in. You will find out soon enough.
