Elian

The Truth Revealed

"MALFOY!" Ron roared as he charged forward, shocking everyone in the Great Hall. "GET YOUR ASS AWAY FROM HER!" Ron then roughly pulled Draco off of Elian, both too shocked to say or do anything other than stare at the raging ginger.

"Ron! What the fuck do you think you're doing?" Elian yelled at Ron, now attracting the attention of the entire Great Hall. Draco just stood there, an extremely shocked expression still on his face. "Well, Ron?" Ron opened his mouth.

"I-uh…I'm-sorry…um, yeah-" He stuttered looking around for some kind of support. "I, uh, heh. I'll be going now!" With that Ron ran back over to Hermione and Ginny, both of whom by the way were just as shocked as everyone else.

"I'll deal with you later in the Common room, Ronald Weasley! Don't you think I won't either!" Elian yelled after him, Draco cleared his throat.

"What?" She looked over at Draco. "Uh, sorry. What is it?" Draco raised his eyebrow quizzically, smirking slightly.

"Am I that great of a kisser?" he asked, causing Elian to blush and shake her head. "What?" Draco asked disbelievingly.

"Eh, I've had better…" She replied, still blushing. Draco scoffed loudly. "What you don't believe that?" Draco shook his head. "And why not?" She asked, Draco just shrugged in response then started to walk away.

"Maybe I'll tell you another time… see you around, Marshall." he said, waving behind him. Elian stood there staring at him walk away. "Oy, come on, Blaise!" Blaise looked up from the girl he had been making out with and saw Draco waving for him to follow.

"Do I have to, Malfoy? Can't you see I'm a little busy here?" he called to Draco, who nodded. "Then piss off!" Draco shook his head. "Arr! I'll see you later, love." Blaise whispered in the girl's ear, and then ran over to Draco. "This better be good, mate."

"We're going back to the Common room." Draco said simply. Blaise's face fell. "Yes, that's it. Now come on." Blaise nodded sadly and followed Draco out of the Great Hall and down to the Slytherin Common room.

"Students! May I have your attention please?" McGonagall said as she stood to her feet. "I regret to inform you, that tonight's ball must be cut short. If you wish, you may go to Hogsmeade village to continue the merriment, but if you do you must be back in the castle by one a.m., is this clear?"

The students nodded in unison. "Now, again I am sorry you can not continue here, but as Professor Alexander has informed me, it is now eleven thirty. Good night and be safe." The Great Hall darkened and emptied quickly after McGonagall said this. Elian and Ginny were ecstatic; Ron and Hermione on the other hand were not. They calmly walked into the entrance hall and then out onto the grounds.

As the four of them quickly walked across the grounds, Elian groaned slightly, Ginny looked over at her concerned. "Elian, are you okay?" she asked, staring at Elian, who nodded.

"Yeah, Gin. But, don't you think we should change?" Ron looked back at them. "What are you looking at, Ronald?" Elian asked him, raising her eyebrows slightly.

Ron shrugged. "Nothing at all. Why do you have to change? I mean, did you see how every guy in the Great Hall was eyeing you? You look drop dead bloody gorgeous!" he said, looking Elian over causing her to blush and Hermione to slap Ron on the back of his head. "Ow!"

"Oh, shut up, Ron!" she said angrily. Ginny and Elian raised their eyebrows at her. "Don't go there. We'll talk about it later."

Ron looked between the three girls confusedly. "Let's go!" Hermione grabbed Ginny and Elian by the hand and dragged them back towards the castle. "Meet you at the Hidden Dragon!"

Ron just stood there, a confused look still on his face. "Okay." With that Ron started for Hogsmeade. Once back at the castle, the three girls rushed up to Gryffindor tower.

"Mione, what's with the violence against Ron act?" Elian asked as they entered the Gryffindor Common room. Hermione shrugged and dragged them up to the girl's dormitories. "Mione!"

Down in the Slytherin Common room, Draco and Blaise sat in complete silence. 'Damn, mate. I could be having fun right now!' Blaise thought, glaring at Draco. "Come on, Malfoy! Let's go to Hogsmeade!" he suggested, Draco shook his head. "And why not? That Gryffindor chick Elian is probably going."

Draco looked up at the mention of Elian. "Really? What makes you think she's going?" Blaise gave Draco a somewhat knowing look and shrugged.

"Fine, we'll go to fucking Hogsmeade, but we're going to the Hidden Dragon." Blaise jumps up and punches the air victoriously. "Idiot."

In the Gryffindor girl's dormitory, Elian and Ginny were patiently waiting for Hermione to come out of the bathroom. "Mione, come on! Hurry up; Ron will be with some other girl!" Hermione quickly opened the bathroom door.

"Fine, let's get going." Elian, Ginny and Hermione then quickly ran out of the dorm, out the portrait hole and down to the entrance hall, where Elian bumped into Draco, causing them both to fall to the floor. "Elian! Are you okay?" Hermione asked as she pulled Elian to her feet.

"Yeah, I'm fine. Jeez, watch where you're going, Draco." she said, looking down at Draco, a smirk on both of their lips. Blaise then extended a hand to Draco, and then pulled him to his feet.

"I see… you're being a smartass again, Marshall." Draco said, his smirk growing. Elian chuckled softly and nodded slightly.

"Well, I happen to find it very attractive…" Elian blushed lightly and turned her back to Draco. "Oh, a rude smartass, even better." he whispered softly in Elian's ear, causing her to turn around to face him.

"Gee, Malfoy, is that all it takes?" Ginny asked raising her eyebrows slightly. Draco nodded surprising Blaise and the three girls.

"Yeah, someone who can challenge me. That's all I want." Draco said as he winked at Elian, causing her to blush again. Blaise scratched the back of his head, chuckling slightly, Ginny looked over at him.

"We should be going… nice bumping into you Malfoy." she said pulling Elian towards the door. "See you two at the Hidden Dragon." With that the girls disappeared behind through the door, leaving Blaise with a smile on his face and Draco with a strange gleam in his eyes.

Down in Hogsmeade, Harry, Ron and Sirius were sitting silently in the crowded Hidden Dragon. Harry looked up at the door. "Where are they?" he asked, Ron and Sirius shrug and sigh heavily.

Outside the door, Hermione, Ginny and Elian were giggling and straightening their clothes. The door finally opened and the three silent men look up.

"Bout time you girls got here!" Sirius yelled upon seeing the girls. Elian quickly walked over to them. "Whoa, you're a knock out!" Sirius said looking Elian over head to toe, causing her to blush. Harry and Ron start laughing. "What? She is!" Harry nods in agreement.

"Yeah, but don't you think she's a bit young for you, Sirius?" Harry asked, laughter still in his voice. Sirius sighed and nodded sadly. "Aw, poor Padfoot..." Ron started laughing harder and more uproariously, soon joined by Harry.

As the four of them quickly walked across the grounds, Elian groaned slightly, Ginny looked over at her concerned. "Elian, are you okay?" she asked, staring at Elian, who nodded.

"Yeah, Gin. But, don't you think we should change?" Ron looked back at them. "What are you looking at, Ronald?" Elian asked him, raising her eyebrows slightly.

Ron shrugged. "Nothing at all. Why do you have to change? I mean, did you see how every guy in the Great Hall was eyeing you? You look drop dead bloody gorgeous!" he said, looking Elian over causing her to blush and Hermione to slap Ron on the back of his head. "Ow!"

"Yeah, but don't you think she's a bit young for you, Sirius?" Harry asked, laughter still in his voice. Sirius sighed and nodded sadly. "Aw, poor Padfoot..." Ron started laughing harder and more uproariously, soon joined by Harry.

"Leave Sirius alone, you guys!" Elian yelled as she gently placed a hand on Sirius' shoulder. Hermione and Ginny nod in agreement.

"Yeah, guys, all he did was compliment Elian… you act like he wants to shag her." Ginny said, glancing over at Elian who looked confused. "That means…" Elian's eyes widened slightly as Ginny whispered in her ear.

"Guys!" Harry and Ron started laughing. "That's not funny!" Elian's eyes slowly started filling with tears. Sirius looked up at Elian, concern filled his eyes.

"You two should really think before you act…Ginny…" Sirius said, pointing at Elian. Harry and Ron's faces instantly fell, and Ginny tightly wrapped her arms around Elian's shoulders.

"You prats! Merlin, you two are so reckless!" Ginny yelled angrily at them. Ron looked at Harry confusedly. "Oh, right you guys don't know…" Harry, Ron and Sirius nod in agreement.

"So, are you going to tell us?" Harry asked Ginny, who shook her head. "Why not?" Hermione and Ginny looked at him disbelievingly. "What?"

"We're not going to tell you because that's for Elian to decide whether or not you should know…" Hermione said. A slightly knowing look crossed Sirius' face, but Harry and Ron remained unenlightened.

"What's that supposed to mean?" Ron asked confusedly. Sirius shook his head and smacked Ron across the face. "Ow, that was kind of womanly of you, Sirius…" he said, staring at Sirius, who just scowled at him.

"Shut up. Don't inquire any further into this matter for the time being." Sirius replied, glancing at Elian who was now wiping the tears from her eyes. "Do you two understand me?" Harry and Ron nod. "Good." The door slowly started to open.

"Whoa, why'd you want to come here, Draco? This place is a dump." Blaise inquired as he and Draco entered the pub. Draco just shrugged and made his way over to where Elian and her fellow Gryffindors were standing and sitting.

"You know, Potter… a gentleman would have given up his seat so that one of these lovely ladies could sit." Draco drawled as he walked up to the table. "Why, Sirius? I thought you had left this mortal life…" Sirius looked up at Draco.

"Well, I do what I can to stay here…" Sirius replied. Draco nodded in agreement. "What brings you here, Draco?" Draco shrugged nonchalantly and glanced at Elian. "Oh, I see." Sirius said knowingly, chuckling softly.

"About damn time you got here, Draco." Elian said looking over her shoulder at him as Ginny finally released her. Harry looked up. "Was Blaise holding you up?" Blaise looked up upon hearing his name.

"No! Draco wanted to take his sweet bloody time! Said it was good to make them wait…ain't that right?" Blaise replied.

Elian raised her eyebrows and looked over at Draco, who shook his head. "You did say that! I heard you!" Draco just continued to shake his head. "Stop lying, Malfoy! It's not good for your health!" Elian started laughing, soon joined by Ginny and Hermione.

"Give it up, Blaise. He's never gonna admit he said that." Ginny said, still laughing softly. Blaise crossed his arms and closed his eyes in defeat.

"Okay, now then… what are you doing here, Malfoy?" Ron asked from his place across the table. Once again Draco shrugged nonchalantly. "Stop shrugging!" Draco smirked at Ron, and then glanced at Elian.

"Forget it, Ron. He's not gonna tell you." Elian said, leaning slightly on Sirius, who looked up at her.

'She has this beautiful light in her eyes…it reminds me of Lily.' Sirius thought to himself as Draco moved closer to Elian. Harry shot up out of his chair.

"Calm down, Harry…it's not like Draco's threatening her life or anything." Sirius said as he smiled up at Elian and winked.

"He's threatening her life just being around her! His father is a bloody Death Eater… and there is no doubt in my mind that he is as well!" Harry yelled, his face turning a bright red. Draco raised his eyebrows in amusement.

"Really? Are you so certain, Potter?" Draco asked, slowly wrapping his arm around Elian's waist. Elian looked down at Draco's arm in surprise, she then looked up at his face to see a sly smile on his lips.

"Malfoy! Get your filthy hands off her!" Ron yelled now shooting up out of his chair. Draco continued to smile and shook his head. "I said; get your filthy hands off her! Or don't you have ears?" Elian started giggling softly.

"Oh, you think that's funny, do you?" Draco whispered softly in her ear. Elian nodded and tried to contain the giggles that threatened to become full blown laughter.

"And what if I don't, Weasley?" Both Harry and Ron leapt at Draco in response. "You idiots!" Draco then gently shoves Elian away from him.

Elian sighs and gently flicks her wand. Harry and Ron froze two inches away from Draco. "He's right. You two are idiots…wouldn't you agree, Sirius?" Elian said her voice filled with amusement and befuddlement. Sirius nodded sadly.

"Dear Odin, I never realized… how could I not have seen this?" Sirius whispered softly. Elian looked down at him. "Of course she reminds me of her… because in a way she is her…" Elian knelt beside Sirius, a worried expression on her face.

"Sirius? Are you alright?" Elian asked as she gently laid her hands over his. Sirius looked up at her, tears in his eyes. "Sirius, what's wrong?" Sirius shook his head and pointed to Ron and Harry. "Damn, the spell is wearing off. Draco, can you handle that for me?" Draco nodded and winked at Elian.

"Elian, we need to talk…in private." Elian nodded as Sirius stood up. "Follow me." Elian and Sirius walked off to a more secluded part of the pub.

"What's up with Sirius?" Ginny asked as she walked them sit down. Hermione shrugged and smiled slightly. "What?" Hermione pointed at Draco. "Yeah, looks like things are going pretty smoothly." The two girls started giggling.

"What's up, Sirius?" Elian asked, looking Sirius straight in the eyes. 'Wow, his eyes look exactly like mine…' she thought as Sirius smiled somewhat sadly.

"Now this may come as a really big shock, Elian…but your parents, Syrus and Alexis…they're not your birth parents." Sirius said softly taking Elian's hands in his own.

He could see the tears forming in her eyes. "Elian, I am your father…and your mother was Lily Potter… so, you and Harry are brother and sister." Elian gasped and looked back at Harry. What was she going to tell him?

Elian looked back at Sirius. "But, how is that possible? I'm a year younger than Harry, plus James and Lily died when he was one…so, I don't get how I can be her daughter." Sirius shook his head.

"All of that is true…for the most part. Harry is actually eighteen, and you're seventeen. So you were born a year before your mother and James died. I'm not proud of what I did, but I am proud of you." Elian sighed heavily.

"So, I guess that explains why Dad never talked about Hogwarts or you…" Sirius nodded. "Harry, doesn't know any of this does he?" Elian asked, looking back at her brother. Sirius sighed heavily.

"No, he doesn't. The only ones alive who know are you and I. If your mother was still alive you probably would have grown up knowing all of this, but seeing as you're Harry's sister and Lily's daughter you were also a target for Voldemort." Elian nodded. "Is any of this making sense to you, Elian?" he sighed heavily again.

"But, if I'm a target for Voldemort and if Draco is a Death Eater…wouldn't it be his duty to hand me over to Voldemort?" Elian asked him, Sirius nodded.

"But, Draco's not a Death Eater. Everyone just thinks he is…kind of like me." Sirius laughed softly. "But, don't worry I won't tell him if you won't tell him." Elian smiled slightly.

'My hero is my father…how many kids can truly say that?' she asked herself, unaware that Harry, Ron, Draco, Hermione and Ginny were walking over to her and Sirius.

"Hey, is everything alright over here?" Harry asked pulling Elian out of her thoughts. Elian looked up at him smiling slightly. "Hey, Sirius, what did you do to her?" A shocked looked crossed Sirius' face.

"Absolutely nothing! Why would I ever do anything to my dau-" Sirius stopped himself, Elian looked uneasy. Harry looked over at Ron. "I mean, why would I ever do anything to Elian?" Draco looked at Elian; he could tell there was something she and Sirius were hiding.

"Elian, what did Sirius tell you?" Draco asked his voice had a slight hint of concern. Elian looked up at him and smiled.

"Nothing…nothing at all." Elian looked back over at her father, who nodded and smiled reassuringly. "Um, I think I should be going. I still have to study a couple of things before tomorrow." Elian said as she stood up, then walked over to Sirius hugged him tightly and kissed his cheek softly, then walked to the door and disappeared through it.

Harry looked at Sirius, a quizzical expression on his face. "Okay, what was that about?" he asked, Sirius just smiled and shook his head.

"You'll either find out or you won't." Sirius replied mysteriously.

"Draco, would you do me a favor?" Draco nodded slightly, indicating his willingness. "Will you walk Elian back to the castle?" Harry and Ron looked at Sirius disbelievingly.

"Of course." Draco said turning towards the door. "Oh, just send Blaise back when he's done…" he pointed over to a corner where Blaise and some girl were making out. Hermione nodded, Draco then walked to the door and he too disappeared through it.

"Sirius! What are you thinking?" Ron asked, still staring at the door. "Letting Malfoy be alone with Elian? Death Eaters could swoop down on them!" Ron yelled waving his arms in the air. Sirius tried to stifle his laughter, but failed.

"You should really consider a career in comedy, Ronald…" Sirius said, laughing hard. A sour expression appeared on Ron's face. "Seriously, there's really good money in comedy." Harry started laughing softly, as did Ginny and Hermione.
