Chapter 15: Freedom
"TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!" Procyon shouted to the world.
"Can't you a least wait for the Daily Prophet article to be published before you announce it to the world?" Romulus asked as Jim transformed himself into James Potter.
"Are you kidding Moony? I've been waiting almost 14 years for this day!" Procyon said as his grabbed Spica and started to dance with her
"At least transform Padfoot. I think you're scaring Spica." Romulus said before he transformed himself into Remus Lupin.
"Remus?" Melissa asked.
"Hi Mel. It's been a while."
"Yes. No thanks to my parents."
"Your parents? I thought…"
"No Remus. It had nothing to do with you being a werewolf." Melissa told him.
With that, the second pair of lovebirds from their class embraced.
"You know, you're the only one still in disguise." Spica told her dance partner as he was spinning her around.
"Oh. Right." He said as he turned himself from Procyon White to Sirius Black.
"I had a feeling it was you." Spica told him.
"What gave it away?" Sirius asked her.
"Hmm. Let's see Padfoot, the fact that your best friends are here, the fact that you're free, the fact that you chose me as a dance partner. It doesn't take a genius to figure out."
"Did you always believe my innocence?" Sirius asked her remembering what she had told Hagrid.
"Innocent when it came to the Potter's death? Yes. Even though I had only known about it for a couple of years."
"Thanks Spica." Sirius said when he embraced her.
"Ahh. Uncle Padfoot has a girlfriend." Harry teased.
"Be quiet." Sirius said ruffling Harry's already messy hair.
"How are you doing Harry?" James asked his son.
"I've been better. But I've also been worse." Was the answer Harry gave his father.
"You might want to go see Madame Pomphrey." Dumbledore suggested.
"Right." Lily agreed with the Headmaster.
"I'll carry you." James offered.
"Can you Dad?" Harry said.
James picked him up before answering, "I shouldn't be able to. But the fact that I can means you have not been eating a lot."
"Dudley has been on a diet, so the whole house has been to."
"I want you to steal food from the kitchen every night for the first month of school. We'll pick it up from there."
"James Andrew Potter! Don't you DARE give MY son ANY ideas!" Lily told him off.
"Alright Dear." James said to her.
"I'll just pilfer the food and bring it up to you." He whispered into his son's ear after they left the office.
