16. Parseltongues and Heirs

"You're a Parseltongue, Harry!! Why didn't you tell us," Ron yelled at him.


"I'm a what," Harry asked.


"You can speak to snakes," Hermione explained. "So, apparently can she."


"Yah, I accidentally set a boa constrictor on Dudley once," Harry said. Ron's mouth dropped open and Hermione rolled her eyes.


"Anyway, it's not like it's uncommon. I mean she can do it," he said.


"That power is rare, Harry. It's almost impossible to have two parseltongues alive and about the same age not related," Hermione said. They were acting as if Lea wasn't even in the room, and it started to annoy her.


"'SHE' has a name, you know," Lea snapped angrily. "It's Lea."


"Sorry," Harry said sincerely.


"Oh be quiet. Who invited you into this conversation," Ron snapped.


"You followed me, idiot."


Ron was at a loss for words.


"How long have you known that you can talk to snakes," Hermione asked both of them.


"For as long as I can remember," replied Lea.


"For just over a year," Harry replied.


"Wait a second! I know who you are," Ron shouted at the top of his lungs. "You're the heir of Slytherin! You're going to try and kill all the muggle-borne in the school!"


The other two took a step away from Lea, realizing what Ron was saying.


"I most certainly am not! I'm a muggle-born thank you very much! Dumbledore told you that already," Lea exclaimed.


"You could have been adopted," Ron said.


"My mother has my birth on video if you'd like to see it. I was forced to watch it enough times to know that I was never adopted," Lea told him.


Both Hermione and Harry took another step back at the idea. Ron, who had no clue what a video was, was not convinced. It took a little explaining on both Harry's and Hermione's part to convince Ron that there was no further questioning needed.


After that was sorted out, Harry asked something that caught Lea off guard.


"Why did you play on the other's fear? You could have explained to them that you were muggle-born. Why have them fear you," he asked.


"A few reasons," Lea said after a quick thought. "1) It's fun, 2) they already hate me and if they're scared, they will most likely leave me alone, and 3) most would assume that I had fun making others afraid. It is better to know and start the rumors about you, than to be oblivious and never created one," she explained.


"That's a crappy rule of thumb," Ron said.


"No, it is not. It works in the muggle world and wizarding world," Lea said, exasperated.


"So if you're not the Heir of Slytherin, and Harry isn't, who is," Hermione asked.


"Finally, a good question," Lea nearly shouted. "Thank you!


"There are several people we can rule out. 1) Crab and Goyle, way to stupid." Everyone agreed to that. "We can rule out all the teachers, too. If they were the Heir they would have opened the Chamber a long time ago." The Potter gang nodded but the boys were less sure of the nod. They were thinking of the Head of Slytherin.


"It's Malfoy," Ron said. "I know it!"


"Possibly," Hermione said thinking.


"Most likely not," La said.


"Ron's right. It's Malfoy. Is there anyway for you to get near to him," Harry asked Lea.


"No, I'm a mudblood, idiot," Lea replied. Everyone flinch at the word. "Oh please, grow up."


With that the meeting ended. They planned another meeting for next week and went their separate ways. The Potter group never spoke in public with Lea and they were not friends. They were just trying to solve a mystery.
