Summary of this chapter: Albus comes out to his family, but he is not prepared for the response to his news

Setting: August 2021


"Albus, you have to do this, it isn't like auntie Ginny and Uncle Harry are homophobic or something" said Rose Weasley to her cousin who was fidgeting in the seat in front of her.

Scorpius nodded one arm resting above his girlfriends shoulders "I agree with her Albus, quit being dramatic"

"It is no dramatic Scorpius!, What if they kick me out or something?"

"They won't kick you out Albus" said Rose calmly "You are talking like you don't know your own parents"

"It isn't like you murdered someone!" Exclaimed Scorpius "You just like boys instead of girls, big deal"

The fact that Albus Severus Potter was gay was no secret between the three friends; the problem was that they were the only one who knew about the little secret. Albus had come out to his two best friends about a year ago, when they caught him staring at a Ravenclaw in the middle of the Halloween feast. Since that moment, both Rose and Scorpius were trying to make him tell the truth about his sexuality to his parents, to no avail.

"Can we talk about something else please?"

Rose and Scorpius looked at each other, and silently decided to drop the subject for now

"Alright we can"Scorpius started thinking about a possible new subject when suddenly a mischievous smile appeared on his face"Did you hear the match yesterday?"

Albus grinned and looked at his cousin who was getting pissed off.

"Well, it was a record. The Cannons scored ten goals! My mum was quite shocked."

Scorpius laughed quickly joined by Albus, Rose frowned and started telling them off. It was a while after that when Rose finally stopped talking about her favorite team.


Albus looked around the table, his cousin words ringing in his head. He had to tell his parents the truth; he could not hide it anymore. Looking around the table, he decided it was now or never.

All his Family was there. His parents, flirting with each other at the end of the table, His sister her face red, fighting with James , and his brother with his glasses askew, frowning at Lily, they all were there, it was the time.

Albus stood up from his usual place on the table and looked at his family.

He cleared his throat.

All of them looked up at him.

"I have something to tell all of you"Albus sighed and looked downwards"I'm gay"

The couple of seconds of silence were a dagger in Albus heart, he was scared, What he was supposed to do now? His parents and siblings obviously didn't approve. He was about to say something, he didn't know what, But before he could even say a word his mum jumped from her seat and started screaming in joy.

"I want to see those galleons Potter!"

Albus gaped at his parents, his heart still racing but de sadness and anger was quickly replaced by confusion.

"Al, I'm really proud of you and I am happy that you decided to finally tell us, but couldn't you wait two more weeks?"Harry accioed ten galleons that came flying form upstairs in a straight line"Here you go Potter, enjoy them while they last."

Ginny let out a victorious shriek and took the galleons from him, putting them on the pocket of her robes. Before he could ask them what was going on, James pumped out his fist and grinned at his brother

"To me it was the perfect time dad"He high fived his mother who was doing a little dance, the galleons tingling in her pocket"I'm really proud of you Albus" He was about to get up and join Ginny in the dancing but turned to look at him once again"The only thing I want to ask you is if you could verify that you came out today so I can collect my winnings later on."

"What the heck is going on in here?"

Ginny shock her head from side to side and took a seat on Harry's lap.

"You are just as clueless as your father dear"

Albus looked at his mother confused, to shocked to make any connections. Lily took pity of him and started explaining the situation to her brother.

"Its really simple Albus, our inmature parents made a bet, and I'm pretty sure James also made a bet with uncle George or Freddy"Lily made a dramatic pause and pointed to herself"I, being the best sister in the world and the more mature, didn't do any bets"

Albus ignored the last part of Lily's answer and stared at his family in surprise.

"All of you knew?"

"I saw you snogging some guy on a broom closet at Hogwarts"Said James with confidence"But I had known for a really long time before that, there wasn't any other explanation of your sudden interest in Dylan and his well being"

Albus turned to look at his sister who rolled her eyes

"Come on Albus you aren't really the subtlest person I know"

"Just like his father"sighed Ginny from Harry's lap, earning a playful glare from her husband

Albus turned to look at his parents and Harry answered with patience

"Parent intuition I guess?"Harry looked at his wife who shrugged"I don't remember how we found out, it was a really long time ago"

Ginny nodded"We are really proud of you Al"

She hopped off her husband's lap and ran to her son hugging him to her. Harry stood up to and hugged his son and his wife tightly, next was Lily who was followed by James.

Albus grinned from ear to ear. He was really lucky to have such a supportive family, even if his brother was sometimes insufferable, his sister annoying and his parents inmature.

He burrowed his head in his mother shoulder, excited to tell Rose and Scorpius, the good news.
