The Shield And The Sword
Harry Potter lay down on the floor, fast asleep and snoring. Everyone stared at Ari in shock.
"You told me she is a muggle." Cried Ginny.
"She is" said Scorpius simultaneously as Ari said "I am."
"Then how do you explain this?" Ginny barked.
James and Albus picked Harry up and placed him on the couch. Ari looked scared out of her brains. Scorpius couldn't look at her like this.
"We don't know what happened. All I can understand is that the spell bounded because maybe she feels threatened or she wished truly from her heart that she didn't want to be attacked by this spell." Scorpius tried to explain.
"Well that's one hell of a rebound." Said James. "Boy we should do this spell a lot often on dad. It'll solve his sleeping problem."
"Not funny James." Barked Lilly.
There was a knock on the door. Ginny opened and out there on the door step were two men and one woman from the ministry. They were from the muggle control department.
"It has come to our attention that there is a muggle here who stumbled upon our side of the world." The woman started speaking. "We are here to settle this situation and send her back from where she came from. Bartan, do the spell."
A tall, dark, healthy and clean shaven man came forward. He raised his wand and and summoned the same sleeping spell. Ari covered her face frightened. The spell rebounded again and the man fell on the floor fast asleep.
Everyone stared at Ari. Ari was so freaked out, a tear came out of her eyes. Scorpius got mad.
"Everyone back off. No one will do anymore spells on her." Scorpius growled at everyone.
"Scorpius. Arrange a place for her to stay tonight. We will take her to Dumbledore tomorrow. There is definitely something fishy here." Ginny shot with her eyes narrowed.
Ari was freaked out. She started crying. Scorpius put his arm around her. "Come on." He whispered softly to her.
"But Mrs Potter, we" said the woman as Ginny cut her down.
"I said what I said. We don't know what the situation is right now Ms Brown. You will go back to the ministry and not utter a single word. We have to know what happened." Ginny said sternly.
"Very well then Mrs Potter. If you don't mind me asking. Did the same thing happen to Mr Potter?" The woman said looking at Harry with concern. He was snoring at the couch. Ginny nodded. The woman nodded back and left.
Scorpius took Ari out of the house. Ari sobbed slowly. Once out if the gate Scorpius stopped.
" I'm sorry Ari. I don't know it would turn out like that. We didn't mean to freak you out." Scorpius said softly. Ari calmed herself down.
"What will happen now? Are they gonna put me in azkaban?" Ari asked scared.
"No one is putting you anywhere. You are a muggle who had accidental magic. We just need to figure out how that happen. I promise you I won't let anything happen to you."
"So what now?"
Now we have to settle you somewhere. Come at my place. We will give you a room. I'm sure father won't mind."
"Scorpius. Two problems."
"One, we left padfoot at the Potter's. Second, all my stuff is at my hotel."
"Oh my gid Padfoot!" Laughed Scorpius. "Let me tell you what, wait here, I'll get padfoot. Then we will go to your hotel and get your things."
Scorpius went over at the Potter's again. He got Padfoot while Ari waited outside. When he came, Padfoot started pouncing on Ari. Ari gave him a kiss. They all started walking. They walked a few minutes. Scorpius noticed Ari's expressions kept changing as if she was trying to decide something.
"Okay. What is it?" Asked Scorpius.
"Huh?" Ari replied.
"You obviously have questions so what is it?"
"Well, um... Is it true that you and Albus went back in time to get back Cedric Degree?"
"What? Where'd you get that idea from?"
"That explains everything." Scorpius replied sarcastically. "No such thing happened."
"So you and Albus never broke into Hermione's office to get the time Turner a d go back to get Cedric?"
"No ma'am. Mr Amos was hell-bent on getting Cedric back but it wasn't possible. Plus Albus and I wouldn't do such a foolish thing. Albus actually wanted to go in past though but Delphi set him straight. "
"Hmm. Okay this is going to be a but awkward but I have to ask. How did you feel when everyone called you voldermort's child?"
"Who called me what?" Scorpius blurted out in shock.
"Everyone?" Ari saod weakly. "The book said that people would stay away from you because you were rumoured to be voldermort's child."
"No such thing happened!" Scorpius exclaimed. "What book are you reading? If you really wanna know I actually had a good time at school. James, Lilly, Rose, Hugo, all were good to me. My dad, Mr Potter's family and Mr Weaseley's family all got close after the battle. My father apologized. He did what ge had to do. He has never been the same Rose says."
"I knew it. The cursed child seemed poor. Its the book. All books are amazing except for that one. So you were never in love with Rose as well?"
"Okay." Scorpius said blushing. "That part would be true." He paused. " Rose and I were always good friends. Things started heating up during her last year. Of course it was also a little weird as she is older to me but it was good. We were together for three years."
"Stuff." That's all Scorpius said.
Ari and Scorpius both reached Ari's hotel. Scorpius helped Ari check out. They then reached the Malfoy manor.
