Part One: Dinner With Harry and Family
Jade got dressed and walked into her living room to see Harry sitting on her sofa, looking at her pet turtle. She saw him more relaxed than he had ever been when she first met him. He was wearing a dark green shirt that enhanced his eyes and crisp black pants. His hair was much tamer and neater but a tad bit mussed.
Just like his hair, Harry's body had gone through a change for the better. She remembered to him to have an average build but thinner but his muscles were developed nicely, just like Draco's had. Harry looked like he could endure a muggle car getting run over him, of course Jade didn't wish that but that was just what she thought of Harry Potter; rock solid yet lean.
"You're in a hurry." Harry said looking at Jade. "I know. I need to go to my Dad's house for dinner. Do you want to come along?" Jade asked seeing Harry shrug.
"Sure." Harry got up from his seat and followed behind Jade as she closed the door.
"You should be careful. Especially now that you've got a psychopathic serial killer's attention who gift wraps a dead body in front of your apartment."
He took out his minimized broom and maximized it. It wasn't even probably out for the public to purchase.
"That's a nice ride." Jade said seeing Harry turn around. It was a wood finish in black, looking lethal. The thin and slender part of the seat had a delicate scripture in silver. 'Prestissimo.' The part where the bristles were supposed to be and Jade had a hard time trimming and cleaning was shaped into a round looking cone, glinting from its chrome finish.
"Do you want one?" Harry asked seeing Jade shrug.
"I'd love to but it's probably going to take more than Malfoy's money to pay that off." Jade said.
"Where's your old broom? I'll give that in and trade you for a better one." Harry said. Jade grimaced.
"I left my Cleansweeper outside when I tried questioning Pervnas and somehow he found it and broke it in half." Jade said.
"Rest in Peace Cleansweeper." Harry said, settling himself back on his broom again. He motioned for Jade to sit behind him and she did, trying to think of a way to put her arms around Harry without making anything awkward.
"Either hold on to me or fall from the broom because this one moves fast…either way it's your call babe." Harry said. Jade circled her arms around Harry's waist and the broom shot off the air.
Jade was so startled by the sudden jerk, she let go of Harry and landed on her arse on the ground 10 feet from the air.
"OW!" Jade yelled, turning over and rubbing her bottom. She heard Harry come back with the Prestissimo, doubling over in laughter.
"I told you to hold on tight didn't I? You don't listen Jade." He said giving her a hand. Jade got up to her feet and brushed herself off.
"Let's try this again." Jade said.
Harry and Jade arrived in Bilius Weasley and Aunt Muriel's home. While Harry was putting the broom away, Jade cautioned Harry about the current state of the house. Bilius opened the door and stuck his head out, seeing Jade and Harry on their front steps.
"Well if it isn't Harry Potter! Come in my boy!" Bilius said. They started walking in when Aunt Muriel blocked their way.
"Jade! You bought a man home? Is he your boyfriend? Good golly it's Harry Potter!" Aunt Muriel said, her smile stretching so wide, Jade could notice her dentures slipping.
"Jade's always shy to tell us when she has a boyfriend. You should have heard about her fiancé, he was a real-"
"Sshh! Can't you see grownups are talking?" Aunt Muriel asked. Jade raised her eyebrows and gaped at Aunt Muriel and Bilius who dragged an extremely amused Harry Potter for dinner.
Jade felt tense throughout the entire dinner and was highly uncomfortable of the fact that Aunt Muriel and her father kept pressing on the idea of Harry and Jade together.
"We're actually not together. We're strictly professional Aurseizes." Harry said. Aunt Muriel's shoulders slumped and she went back to stabbing her chicken.
"Jeez Jade you need a man." Aunt Muriel said.
"I don't need one. I'm fine on my own." Jade said.
"Can't have children on your own." Bilius muttered.
"I'm 25! What am I going to with a kid?" Jade asked.
"Sooner or later she'll be 40 and she won't be able to have any more children. Look at your cousins; they're all happily married with children!" Aunt Muriel said.
"My only daughter is 25 years old and I'm still not a grandfather." Bilius said shaking his head. Jade looked at Harry who tried to contain himself and exert his urge to laugh in his food.
"I'm sorry you had to see that." Jade said when Harry dropped her off in front of her apartment.
"I'm sorry to say this but your family is entirely nutters." Harry said seeing Jade nod and open her door.
"So I've been told a thousand times." Jade said. Harry said goodbye and left, leaving Jade to crash on her bed and fall asleep.
