Part Five: Mrs. Potter
After breakfast, Jade and Harry apparated off to the Three Broomsticks where Jade needed to check up on Madame Rosmerta. As soon as Harry and Jade walked into the pub, Rita and the rest of the waitresses ambushed Jade by hugging her tightly.
"You're an absolute God send!" Clarissa said in tears.
"What? What did I do?" Jade asked. They all squealed and Jade heard Harry sigh behind her.
"You sent Madame Rosmerta for her operation and paid for her entire treatment!" Rita said.
"What?" Jade asked.
She pushed through the crowd and went up the stairs with Harry behind her. They checked Madame Rosmerta's bedroom and found that her bed was made and the room was empty.
"I didn't send her for the operation, where did she go?" Jade asked Rita who frowned.
"But Dr. Ashcroft came in this morning. He said to give him a call as soon as you came into the pub." Rita said handing Jade a card.
Jade immediately dialed Dr. Ashcroft and waited for him to pick up.
"Dr. Ashcroft speaking." He answered.
"Dr. Ashcroft, this is Jade-"
"Jade! So good to hear from you. Yes it's good you called because last night we've had an anonymous payment for Madame Rosmerta's operation and weekly treatments. She is being prepared for surgery now so you will not have to worry about payment plans. You only have to worry about having to give her, her regular medication which is also free by the way-"
"I don't understand. Anonymous payment? Who paid for all of this?" Jade asked.
"I am afraid I cannot tell you Miss Weasley. We are supposed to keep their identity confidential." He said.
Jade ran a hand through her hair, feeling her throat tighten and the entire world lift off of her shoulders.
"All I can say that this person urged Madame Rosmerta's surgery to be taken immediate effect. I only need you to sigh a few papers and that will be all." Dr. Ashcroft said.
"Thank you…thank you so much Dr. Ashcroft, you have no idea how much this means to me." Jade said hearing him chuckle.
"Can you please thank whoever did this for me? I'm so grateful for whatever they've done and I know Madame Rosmerta is too." Jade said.
"Yes, yes I will Miss Weasley. You have no worries. She is in good hands." Dr. Ashcroft said.
Jade thanked Dr. Ashcroft once again before closing the phone. She covered her face with her hands and cried, feeling Harry wrap his arms around her.
"I'm so happy!" Jade squeaked in his chest. She pulled away and sobbed harder. "You have no idea how happy I am. I think I really have a guardian angel or something!" Jade said in a high pitched voice. Harry took her hand and started walking.
"Do you want to talk about it?" he asked.
Rita handed Jade a tissue and Jade blew her nose.
"Madame Rosmerta has stomach cancer and I had no money to pay for her operation or chemotherapy." Jade said. Harry nodded and Jade continued.
"I went to Gringotts yesterday for a loan and they denied me so basically I was in a complete mess until now where I just found out that someone paid for her operation and treatments." Jade said. Harry gave her a long look and crossed his arms.
"Why didn't you ask me?" He asked. Jade shook her head.
"You're unbelievable." Harry said getting up.
"Where are you going?" Jade asked.
"To the Ministry. There are a couple of things I need to clear up in the Aurseize Office and so do you." Harry said.
"I do?" Jade asked.
"Ron's looking for you." Harry said.
Jade scowled and walked out of the pub, apparating to the Ministry with Harry.
"I'm going to be out of the country for a couple of days." Harry said seeing Jade roll her eyes.
"Are you being nice because you're leaving for a few years?" Jade asked sarcastically seeing Harry lean against the elevator bars. The light over him highlighted most parts of his body that Jade loved to run her hands through.
"I need you to do something for me." Harry said. Jade smirked playfully and crossed her arms.
"I've been doing an awful lot of favors for you Harry." Jade said. Harry's pupils dilated and he pushed himself off with ease and cornered Jade.
"I'm all yours for payback babe." He said.
The elevator doors opened and Albert, Blaise and Draco stood there as Jade walked out, pale faced. Harry smirked and walked behind her, leaving Draco snarling.
"Looks like he was sucking the blood right out of her." Draco said seeing Jade walk into the Aurseize Office with Harry.
"If it were about sucking blood, it's supposed to be the other way around. You all right mate?" Blaise asked Draco who nodded.
Jade walked into the Aurseize Office to see Zane and Knox sitting on chairs and Parvati with Lavender.
"Jade! You busy little bugger, can hardly make the time for your friends these days." Parvati said. Jade smiled and took a few files from Parvati.
"I didn't ask how Cho was holding up." Jade said to Harry who signed off papers which Zane gave him.
"She's requested not to work for a few days." Harry said looking up.
"You should be making apprehensions without a problem." He said. Jade smiled and Knox handed Harry another packet of papers.
"The apprehension papers for Charlaine Wintuk." Knox said. Harry looked up at Jade and gave her the papers.
"You made that apprehension, you sign it." Harry said.
"Really?" Jade asked seeing Harry nod.
"You get half of the apprehension money." He said.
Jade grinned as she took the paper and quill from Harry's hand. She signed where it was crossed and gave it back to Harry who signed it off underneath her. He closed the papers and handed it back to Knox when all of a sudden, Jade and Harry's ring finger on their right hand started glowing.
"What the hell is going on?" Jade asked as a gold band circled her ring finger.
Parvati and Lavender stood up and everyone stared in horror as another gold band made its way around Harry's ring finger. As soon as the bands were done being made, they stopped glowing but everyone was still frozen and shocked to their roots.
"What does this mean?! Why is there a ring on my finger?!" Jade asked trying to take the ring off. Harry looked at Knox who paled under his watch.
Harry snatched the papers from him and flipped through it, landing on the page where Jade and Harry signed.
"I accidentally stapled my marriage papers on these documents." Knox said.
A grown man with muscles as big as Jade's head was trembling to death in front of her. Harry looked like he was controlling his anger, staring quietly at the piece of paper silently. Jade started to grow sick with fear. Usually when Harry was this quiet and angry scared the life out of her. She hated to see Harry angry, which by far was one of the scariest things she could ever witness. Draco on the other hand was loud when he was angry, which could also count as equally frightening as Harry's anger.
"Marriage papers? You've got to be joking." Jade said looking at the paper Harry was holding.
Harry handed Jade the papers and grabbed Knox by his shirt. With one swift motion, Harry pummeled Knox into Parvati's desk which broke in half. Parvati and Lavender both shrieked and bolted for the door. Ron got out of his office and saw Harry picking Knox back up again and throw him against the wall.
"What the fuck is going on?" Ron asked.
"Harry and Jade just got married." Lavender said.
Jade came between Harry and Knox, protecting Knox from being turned into dust by Harry.
"Harry you need to calm down." Jade said.
"Get out of my way Jade." Harry said quietly.
"Harry listen to me." Jade said holding his shoulders. She looked at Zane and the rest.
"Can you all step out with Knox for a minute? I need to talk to Harry." Jade said.
Everyone scurried out and Jade held onto Harry firmly, thanking the stars that Harry was listening to her. She knew she didn't have the strength or power to get Harry to listen or if he decided to push her off and rip Knox's head off with his bare hands. When everyone left, Jade turned back to Harry.
"We're in the Ministry right? We'll go up to the Marriage Bureau and get this thing annulled." Jade said.
