A Secret is Meant to be Kept

When Ron lashes out at Hermione and gets them into a sticky situation, Hermione transports herself back in time. But the Marauders Era was a bit farther than she expected. She must figure out how to reverse the spell, deal with falling in love all over again and fight against some of the most notorious Death Eaters, who are inside the castle's walls. Not as intruders, but as classmates.


45. Always

Each stood, dead in their tracks, unsure of whether to jinx her or hug her.  But Hermione had one thing circling her mind.

"I'll take my chances."  She spoke coldly.  Her words hung in the air, voice as icy as the wind.  She turned around, and as she put her head down, she spoke once more. "I don't need another one of Sirius' ex-girlfriends telling me how to live my life, or at least what's left of it."

"Look, I dunno what your problem is, but if you want to get back to your time, you would listen to me." Said Bailey.  Hermione contemplated her next move carefully.  She turned on her head back to face them.

"How did you know?" She asked softly.

"I'm not stupid Hermione.  And I'm quite surprised you haven't found your way back yet!  What with the impending battle, going back would be in your best interest, would it now?" She inquired.

"I don't think you would know what's in my best interest!" She snarled.  "Besides.  I'm not a coward."

"I wasn't suggesting you were.  Only that you may wish to go home, see your friends again,  family.  Get your old life back."

"You don't know anything about me.  Who knows?  Life here might be even better than home.  Fighting the same man.  But in this time.. He's less known, weaker.  I might have a chance of surviving in this lifetime." She said harshly, longingly.

"Give me a break!  You're acting like you're doing this on your own!" Said Sirius.  He looked saddened, tired, and the usual sparkle in his eye was gone.

"I am.  In more ways than one.  You.... You don't know what I've been through!" She shouted.  "You don't know what it's like!  I gave everything I had fighting this war!  I've obliviated my own parents, made them forget me, forget who I am, forget our lives together.  I've watched my friends die!  I've watched my professors die!  I was inches away from death, so many times!  You couldn't even count." She screamed at him.  "When you experience that!  When you live through that!  Then, you can judge me.  But until then, I invite you to leave at any moment."  She said, finishing softly.  "All of you!" She barked. "If you want to go, go now.  I beg you." She sighed, a tear streaming down her face.  

"We will never leave you, Hermione."  Said Remus, putting a hand on her shoulder.

"As long as you need us, we will be there." Said Lily.

"Hermione, you are our family now." Said Carressa.

"You'll stay with me?" Said Hermione looking up at them.

James met her gaze, before speaking. "Always."
