A Timely Mistake

By Emma Albright



"I finally got it." Harry said mysteriously. He was in a broom closet under the stairs in the west wing. In his hands he held a golden necklace, with an hour glass, and words inscribed on the perimeter. "A time turner... Finally!" He whispered to himself. He put the necklace on and turned it. He felt time going backwards. He climbed out of the closet and ran to grab a book from the library. It was a time turner he stole it from Hermione to get a book from the library that he needed for his homework that was due tomorrow. Harry checked out the book and headed back for the common room where he would put the time turner on the table for Hermione to discover. On the way up the stairs the last person he wanted to see suddenly appeared in front of him.

"Potter" Malfoy's droned " what is that you have on; a necklace?" Malfoy smirked and picked it up off Harry's chest. Malfoy started to turn it.

"No!" Harry yelled.

Malfoy smiled at Harry's displeasure and spun it. He kept on spinning the time turner and once he stopped it kept spinning. Harry braced himself. He didn't know how far he would go. Sure enough time started to go back. He saw things happening around him. Students coming and going into the Gryffindor common room. Fred and George when they were young. Then Random people he didn't know. Finally time slowed down. No one was there. He started running down the stairs. Thinking that the time turner would look weird if someone saw him he took it off. Then "humph" he fell into one of the trick stairs. He was in such a hurry he thought nothing of it.

Then he heard a group of people coming that way. He tried to get up but he couldn't. The group was approaching quickly as he could now hear laughter. Soon the group was in sight. Harry gasped,it was his dad, Lupin, and Sirius. Sirius the man he just found out was innocent of killing Pettigrew. He was wondering where wormy was but he figured they often went out without him.

The gasp caught the attention of Sirius. He nudged his dad and Lupin. They headed his direction. "Need some help there?" Asked James. Harry nodded, still amazed. Sirius, and James got on either side of him and pulled.

"Thanks." Harry stated.

"No problem. I don't believe I know you. What's your name?" James asked.

"Harry, Harry Potter."

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention.

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.
