Grey Line of friendship
Chapter four the meeting
After the conversation with Ron, Harry felt a little dazed. Somehow, in some way, Ron, the guy with the emotional length of a wand, had just told Harry that he knew how Harry felt about Hermione. How did this happen? Was I that obvious? Oh no. What if Hermione found out? I doubt she’d be up for another relationship with her best friend. Damn it, Ron, you just have to ruin it, don’t you? At that moment, Ron tapped Harry on the shoulder, awakening him from his reverie.
“Mate, most of the Order is here already. Let’s find Hermione,” said Ron, stretching his long neck over the crowd, scanning for her. When he finally spotted her, he nudged Harry to follow him.
“Hi, um… Harry, there’s not much of the Order left, but I guess that will make it easier for you. I’ll just get their attention…” With that, she turned and nodded to Remus Lupin, who was settled in the chair in the back of the small crowd.
“If I could please have your attention everyone. Harry being the one to gather us altogether probably means it’s important, so please settle down,” said Lupin. He sounded tired and wasn’t in the mood to try to calm down a group of adults who probably didn’t care what a sixteen year old had to say. Harry scanned the crowd, never really liking too much attention for himself. He shifted uncomfortably where he stood. He glanced over at Hermione, who was giving him an encouraging look. He gathered all of his Gryffindor courage and cleared his throat.
“Um… hi… My name is Harry Potter.” Wow, Harry do you really think they don’t know that? Well, go on. “So I'm sure you’re all wondering why we are here today. Let me explain. We have stumbled into recent development over a new weapon that Voldemort has uncovered.” Most of the order gasped at Harry saying Voldemort’s name, but Harry tried to ignore it. He glanced at Hermione again, gaining some strength to continue. Well, you’ve gotten this far. He took another deep breath and continued, “Voldemort has discovered yet another killing curse. I am afraid to say that this one is indeed much worse than we could have imagined.
“The spell takes the form of a snake injecting the snake venom into the victim’s body. Unlike Avada Kedavra, which kills immediately, causing no pain, this spell lasts much longer, draining out the mind and soul of the victim. I can only imagine how painful it would be for the victim. This spell is called serpensaposeo. Since we are now aware, we are now on somewhat even playing fields with him. This may help us in the fights ahead. I really hope it does.” When Harry finished, the room became so still and quiet, it was like someone had frozen time. Harry walked over to where Ron and Hermione stood. He looked over to Hermione, expecting to see worry in her beautiful brown eyes. Instead, it almost looked like she was proud of him. Harry couldn’t help but smile to himself when he saw that. He was so caught up in Hermione he hadn’t notice Lupin stand up and move to the middle of the room. He only noticed when Lupin had cleared his throat.
“Thank you, Harry that was important information. We will look further into it. Now to discuss another matter. Since the recent death of Albus Dumbledore, we have suffered dearly. Most have of our members have left us, accepting defeat. Albus was a great man, and an excellent wizard. He would not want us to back down, and we need to stay strong, at least in his memory. Dumbledore was a leader, but now that he has passed we must move on. It has been hard, but it will only get harder. We most stick together. If not, how will we ever win? Albus was our leader and our stronghold. This will finally bring me to my next matter. We must elect a new secret-keeper, with that find another place to stay because of Severus; we must elect a new leader for the Order of the
“I and a couple other members have gotten together and come up with, what is, in our opinion, our best new leader. This leader got to know Dumbledore better than any one of us could imagine. Dumbledore trusted this person with his own secrets. This is why I believe we should have him lead us. But, of course, he might not be able to do it alone. If he had a high board to consult with his decisions, that would be great. This person will be our leader and our secret-keeper. I believe he is ready for it.
“The others-” At this, Mr. Weasley, Moody, Tonks, Mrs. Weasley, Charlie, professor McGonagall and some order members Harry didn’t know stood up. “-have decided to elect Harry Potter to be our new secret keeper and leader.” Chaos broke out. People were arguing, but Lupin continued. “Along with him, Ron, and Hermione, will join him in the board if you all agree. I believe they are ready, I know they are ready. All you have to do is agree, and then it’s up to them if they believe in themselves.” At the end of his speech, Ron and Hermione turned to Harry, looks of concern on their faces. Harry didn’t know what to do. He saw everyone turn to get a good look at him. Harry took a deep breath in. He kept hearing Lupin’s voice in his head, repeating those words.
“… Have decided to elect Harry Potter to be out new secret keeper and leader.” “… Have decided to elect Harry Potter to be out new secret keeper and leader.” “… Have decided to elect Harry Potter to be out new secret keeper and leader.”
