Together In Life And Death.

It is the last year at Hogwarts for Harry, Ron and Hermione. With Dumbledore gone, no one really knows what this year is going to be like. One thing they know for sure is that like every year, something is bound to happen. Especially now that Voldemort is back and more powerful then before.
I hope you'll enjoy reading this fan fiction and any kind of feedback/constructive critisism will be taken on board :) don't be shy to let me know what you think.


8. Occlumency

"Who was it? Lucius or Bella?"

"Neither. It was my mum." Malfoy had turned back to himself.

"Alright. Mr Weasley, care to be next?"

Ron's ears went red "I thought I'd try after Harry. Just to see how he will do. Yeah."

"Suit yourself. Mr Potter, please, the stage is yours." Kelly smiled to her.

Harry walked in front of the classroom. He remembered Hermione's words : "Focus. You know how to do it, it's in your blood. Just like Quidditch."

"Here goes" he said with a smile. And in a matter of minutes he was a stag.

"Like father like son" McGonnagal mumbled.

"Very good, Mr Potter. 20 points to Gryffindor. Oh, and 20 points to Slytherin as well."

"Now, Mr Weasley. Ready?"

"Umm, ah. Yeah.Sure." Ron muttered to himself while walking up front. He still hadn't picked the animal. He hesitated between a dragon, an owl and a dog. Which made him end up still as Ron, but with a hounds ears, a dragons tail and an owls beak. He started to panic and Harry and Seamus had to hold him down, before Kelly could use a counter spell on him.

"Lucky I didn't panic" he said, being back to normal.

"You must be certain and focused, Mr Weasley. You can't think many thoughts, cause this is very hard magic. I hope you understand that." McGonnagal had looked frightened through the whole thing.

After that Lavender and Blaise earned both 20 points to their houses Gryffindor and Slytherin. Lavender had been taught by his uncle in the summer, so she could easily turn herself into a Dingo. Blaise had a little trouble, but he finally took the shape of an anaconda. "No wonder" thought Kelly "he is a deatheater still." and Seamus couldn't change himself into a lion.

"So that's it for today. I advise you, not to use your animagus forms without permission. Until we have registered you, ther is no need to use it outside the classroom. Miss Granger and Mr. Finnigan, we'll try with you again tomorrow."


*Ron's occlumency lesson*

Ron arrived in McGonnagals office 5 minutes past 8.

"You're late, Mr. Weasley. Again!"

"Sorry, professor, I fell asleep."

"Oh well. I hope you understand, that you're not here for fun. Everyone who are in the order, must now occlumency atleast a little bit. Are you listening to me" McGonnagal raised her voice, seeing Ron's blank look.

"Uh, yeah, yeah, I am" he muttered.

"I wan't you to close your mind to everything and consentrate on blocking it. Don't let me see your deepest fears" McGonnagal wanted to test him momentarily.

"Umm, professor, I don't think I can do it tonight. I'm hungry and it's hard not to think about anything, when I'm hungry."

"Mr. Ronald Weasley, it's not something to be made fun of. You'll learn it today, I don't care, how hungry you are!" McGonnagal's voice echoed from the walls. Ron jumped on her seat and seemed terrified.

"Yes, ofcourse, professor" his voice shivered.

When Ron left an hour later, he still hadn't learnt it fully, but he had made progress, by being able to keep McGonnagal out of his head for 2 minutes.


*Hermione's lesson*

Hermione got to the Room of Requierment and waited for Matt. Matt came running with a smile on her face.

"Sorry, I was late, I was playing with my pet kneazel Kira. So, are you ready?" she asked Hermione.

"I guess so" Hermione smiled.

"You just have to focus on closing your mind and not thinking about anything else."

After an hour, Hermione was fully capable of closing her mind and she was half way to being able to do it, while attacing the person opposite of her. Matt had been so proud of her. When she walked to the common room, she thought how Harry and Ron had done.


*Harry's POV*

Harry climbed up to the Astronomy tower and saw Kelly standing there looking outside the window. 

"Khm, professor Black?"

"Oh, hi Harry. Wanna have a seat?"

Harry sat down and looked at Kelly.

"So, I heard you've already had occlumency with professor Snape and I also heard, it didn't go quite well."

Harry thought back to when Snape had forced him to leave the classroom and swore not to teach him ever again. 

"Yes, it was kind of a catastrophe."

"Well, I hope you'll do better with me" she smiled at him. "Let's give it a go then, you know what to do." She started to attack her mind, she wanted to see memories of Sirius. She wasn't as rough as Snape though, so Harry could really try and block her, but he had too much circeling his mind, to do it fully. 

"Harry, consentrate more. Don't think about Ginny and try not to remind yourself the conversation in Dumbledore's office. It won't help you one bit.

He tried again. Now Kelly could see glimpses of Sirius, Cho kissing Harry and the bright green light with the manical laughter. That made her back off.

"Harry, you're not focusing" she said strictly. Harry's scar hurt so much, he didn't bother to answer.

When he left later, he was just as smart as before, not knowing how to close his mind and knowing, that Kelly had learnt too much about him. He hated the fact that she saw his memories of Sirius. He left Kelly up in the tower, thinking about what she had seen.
