First chapter of my short Harry Potter fan fiction staring Lily Luna Potter and Scorpius Malfoy plus the rest of the Next Generation gang. I don’t own anything, all credit goes to Mrs. J.K. Rowling for creating this wonderful world and giving me this characters. Hope you guys like!
Chapter 1: Summer
“What did Olivander tell you when you got yours?” Roxanne’s hazel eyes looked at me exitedly, “he said mine is going to be great for charm work!”
I took out my wand from the back pocket of my jeans and showed it for the hundredth time, “he said mine is going to be great for transfiguration.”
“I can’t wait until we actually get to use them” Hugo was reaching for his when Grandma Weasley caught us.
“Put those away, you are not even supposed to have them with you yet!”, her face had turned dangerously red, “I’m going to get the cake when I come back I don’t want to see those wands around.”
We put our wands away quickly, we didn’t want to get Grandma mad. Suddenly I remembered that the cake was for me! We were celebrating my birthday a day early because tomorrow was September 1 which meant TOMORROW WAS MY FIRST DAY AT HOGWARTS!!! Fi-nah-lly! I’ve had to see all my cousins and brothers go while I stayed behind at home with mom and dad.
“So, you guys ready for tomorrow?” Teddy asked us.
Hugo, Roxanne and I nodded excitedly. Looking around at all my cousins I got even more excited, most of them were going back with me tomorrow.
Molly, uncle Percy’s oldest daughter, was going back for her last year and just like her dad she was already studying for her N.E.W.T.s even though they were at the end of the year. My brother James and my cousin Fred were going to their fifth year, they had O.W.L.s exams coming so they weren’t as excited about going back, they aren’t the studying type. Also Lucy and Dominique were starting fourth year and Rose and Albus their third year.
“I wonder what house we’ll get sorted into..”
“Well you and Hugo will probably end up in Slytherin since you both are so nice” I said sarcastically, Roxanne laughed at that, she knew that her and Hugo were the least likely to end up in Slytherin.
“That’s not funny! My dad would kill me if I end up in Slytherin” Hugo looked over at uncle Ron nervously. I just laughed and told him not to worry I would make sure everyone went to his funeral but that just made him look more scare.
Everyone was having their own conversations while finishing the amazing food grandma Weasley had prepared.
“Are you nervous about tomorrow?” I heard Teddy ask Victorie.
“A little”, Vic had just finished Hogwarts and was starting healer training at St. Mungos tomorrow.
I saw mom and aunt Hermione telling each other how much they would miss us, “The house is going to be so empty”, mom cried.
Lucy and Domi were talking about what to wear tomorrow while Rose and Albus discussed homework. Sometimes I thought Rose and Albus were more like siblings than Albus and me.
Grandma Weasley finally brought the cake and everyone sang Happy Birthday. After everyone had eaten their fair amount of cake, it was gift time! Most of my uncles, aunts, and cousins gave me sweets, books, new quills, and my favorite Weasley’ Wizard Wheezes products but one gift really surprised me.
“No way!!” I screamed as I saw my brand new Nimbus 4000. I ran to give my mom and dad a hug. “Thank you, thank you, thank you.. “
“We know you won’t be needing it until next year if you make the team but you could start practicing on your own broom”, mom smiled at me as she leaned against my dad.
I smiled back, “Of course I’ll make the team next year”, I was confident. I had not only inherited my dad and mom’s temper but also their Quidditch abilities.
Everything was wrapping up and everyone started going home. We were traveling home through floo powder. I stood on the fire and clearly said Godric’s Hollow. Once we were all home and ready for bed I heard Teddy call me, he’d been living with us since he started going to Hogwarts.
“So I have something I want to give you”, Teddy had his hands behind his back, “Happy Birthday”, he gave me a piece of empty parchment.
“Thank you?” I said confused.
He laughed and took out his wand, he tapped the parchment and said, “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good”. Words started appearing everywhere. At the top it read
“Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs
Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief-Makers
are proud to present
THE MARAUDER’S MAP”
I was in shock and so so happy.
“You are giving me the map?” I asked.
He winked at me “I thought it would be more useful to you right now than to me”, a hint of mischief in his voice, “you know how to use it right?”, I nodded my head yes but he explained it anyways. “To get it to show you tap it with your wand and say ‘I solemly swear that I am up to no good’ and to hide its content you say ‘Mischief Managed’”, we both said together at the end.
“I thought James had taken the map?”, that’s what he had told Albus and me.
“Nah. He tried though, but I’m too smart for him”, we laughed and then it got quiet. I looked at the map, now just a piece of parchment in my hands, and looked up at him, “thank you so much Teddy, I know how much this means to you”. This was one of the few thing he had left from his dad and he was giving it to me.
He just smiled at me, “you are welcome Lilypad, just promise me you are going to put it to good use.”
I smiled mischievously already thinking of all the things I could do. There was no doubt I would put it to good use.
We both went upstairs to our respective rooms saying quick goodnights and with thoughts of the best birthday ever I drifted off into a peaceful, dreamless sleep.
