The Battle Part 2
Chapter 39: The Battle Part 2
Harry was transported to the place where he sent Voldemort.
"Well, well. Potter. Fancy seeing you here. And I was thinking you just sent me away to save Hogwarts."
"I did. I just wanted to finish this once and for all."
"So, you want to join your parents?"
"I can do that when I get back to the castle." Harry said grinning.
"What are you talking about boy? Your parents are dead. Your mudblood mother died trying to save you."
Harry whipped out his wand. "Never insult my mother."
"CRUCIO!" Voldemort shouted.
Harry dodged behind what looked to be once a chimney and sent the disarming curse at his opponent. It missed and Voldemort reacted with the Imperious. Harry fought it off and decided it was time.
"I must admit, you've gotten better." Voldemort said.
"Well, I have you to thank. If you hadn't killed my parents and marked me as your equal, I wouldn't have practiced as much."
"So that was the other part of the prophesy." He said as he sent another Crucio that hit it's mark.
"How come you're not trying to kill me yet?" Harry managed to ask.
"Have you forgotten already about what happened at the Triwizard Tournament, Potter?" referring to the connection.
"No. Amor Caritas!" Harry said.
"AGGGHHHH!" Voldemort screamed in agony.
"Wow. You do have a lot of evil in you." Harry said.
"What was that?"
"A Gryffindor spell. It won't work for you. If anything, it will heal me."
"Where's Harry?" Lily asked frantically.
"I'm sure he's alright." James attempted to calm her down while trying to calm himself.
"How can you be so sure?" Lily asked.
"It's alright." Dumbledore made an attempt. "His wand and Voldemort's are brothers. They can't harm each other."
"What type of wand is Harry's?" Lily asked curious.
"If I recall correctly, an eleven inch Holly and phoenix feather." Dumbledore told her.
With all of the talk of wands, James looked to see how much cleaning his Mahogany wand needed. However, when he saw his wand, he got a terrible feeling in his stomach.
"Professor. I think we might have a problem." James said as he showed them the Holly wand
"AVADA…" Voldemort started not fully recovered.
"LAPIS GORGONIS!" Harry beat his rival to the punch.
The green spell hit Voldemort and he started to go ridged and grey. Voldemort was now a stone statue.
Harry took some deep breaths as he regained his composer.
"And just so you know," he told the statue, "my parents are alive again."
"He went behind the place where he dodged the first curse and said, "Dirumpus"
The statue exploded into millions of tiny pieces.
"I guess I better get Dad's wand back to him."
Harry stood up and grabbed the nearest object.
With that, he was transported to Hogwarts.
"Harry James Potter!" Lily yelled at him when he reappeared. "Where in Merlin's name have you been?"
"It's alright. He's gone." Harry told her.
"What do you mean?" she asked him.
"I'd rather not talk about it." Harry said.
"Come with me Harry." Dumbledore said to him. "You 13 may join us if you'd like." He added to the other unregistered animagi.
They all looked at Harry before agreeing.
When they got to the office, (Dumbledore had already fixed the hole)
"Now Harry, I'm going to ask you to think about the battle you just had with Voldemort."
"Alright." Harry said reliving the terrible hours.
Dumbledore touched his wand to Harry's head and pulled out the memory. After that, he placed it in Harry's Pensieve.
"When did that get up here?" Harry asked.
"Sorry mate. Dumbledore asked for it while you were gone." Ron told him.
"Do you mind if we look? It is your memory." Dumbledore asked.
"Sure Professor. It's probably better that way." Harry said as the others plunged in.
When they came out, Lily wrapped her son in a very tight hug.
"Where did you learn those spells Harry?" Hermione asked.
"The book Dad gave me." Harry answered.
"Why did You-know-who scream at that one spell?" Ron asked.
"Because that is a spell that lets the victim feels what it is like to be loved." Dumbledore answered. "Voldemort had so much evil in him, it caused him pain."
"That's new." Sirius said.
"Actually, it's old." Melissa corrected. "It's one of the Lost Spells"
"I have a question though." Lily said. "Why did you choose that location dear?"
"And why are you still holding that Portkey?" George added.
Harry gave George a look, "I just feel like it." He answered the twin. "As for why I chose that place, well, it felt right. I mean, Godric Hollow was where Voldemort's first downfall was."
"Hopefully, for the last time." Spica said.
"What are we going to do with Snivellus?" Sirius asked.
"I believe I will leave that to the Minister." Dumbledore answered. "Sara, would you do Hogwarts the honor of being the new Potion's Master?"
"It would be my pleasure."
"Oh. Here's your wand back Dad." Harry said giving the wand to his father. "Sorry I took it."
"It's alright. You only did that so you can get rid of Voldemort."
"At least it's over." Lily sighed.
"Actually, it's only beginning." James told her.
"What do you mean Prongs?" Sirius asked.
"Well, with Voldemort gone, we are able to go back into the open. The press and many others will constantly be on our tails wanting the story." James told him.
"Since when did that bother you?" Melissa asked.
"Since I had a family of my own." James answered.
"What about Potter Manor?" Sirius asked.
"Yes. If I recall correctly, Potter Manor has many wards on it." Remus added
"I've read about it." Hermione said, "There are so many wards, that not even the best of wizards can get in."
"So much for visiting." Ron said
"Ron, how big do you think the Manor is?" James asked.
"There's enough room for both of your families and the Marauders/Maraudettes." Remus told Ron.
"With plenty of room to spare." Sirius added.
"We would love to have your family over." Lily put in her say.
"Yeah Ron. C'mon." Harry said to his friend.
"There's a Quidditch field" James told him.
"In that case, when does the Express leave?"
"Not for another month Mr. Weasley." Dumbledore answered.
"C'mon Harry. Let's see your Portkey. You haven't released it since you got back." The twins said begging in the common room.
"What did you do? Use the Permanent Sticking Charm" Hermione asked.
"No. It's just, this was mine before I became a hero to the world." Harry answered finally revealing the small stuffed stag.
"Prongs?" Ginny asked.
Harry nodded. "Things will never go back to normal, will they?"
"Depends on your definition of "normal"." Fred said.
"Probably not, but we're in this together." Ron added.
"All for one…." Hermione started.
"…And one for all." Harry finished.
The Weasleys stared.
"Muggle saying." They said together.
"Oh. Well, I don't know about you guys, but beating up Death Eaters wore me out." Ron yawned.
"Yeah." Harry agreed "and I did most of the work."
"Goodnight boys." The girls said as they went up to their dorms.
Ginny stopped about halfway up the stairs and came back down.
"I forgot something." She said.
With that, she planted a very passionate kiss on Harry's lips. Enough to rivals Ron and Hermione's kisses.
When they released, they noticed the twins and Ron glaring.
"Uh." Harry started.
"We're just kidding." The twins said breaking into smiles.
"Welcome to the family Mate." Ron added. "However, there are some things we'll need to discuss if you're going to date my sister."
