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.

3. Mummy Eu and Da

"Albus, we'd certainly be willing to put her up, it's no trouble," Mrs. Potter insisted.

"Euphemia, it is not that which I fear.  If what Hermione says is true, she is not to be born for another 8 years.  Along with that, she predicts a great war, two at that.  If this timeline is altered, it could greatly affect the outcome of our future.  The lives of ours and the future generation could be hanging by a fragile string." Dumbledore responded, calculating the situation.  "Miss Granger, you say that you were of age in your previous life, am I correct?"

"Yes, sir," Hermione said, quietly.

"And I assume you have completed your studies at Hogwarts?"

"I was due to begin my 7th year when we went on the run.  I haven't returned to Hogwarts since."

"We must enroll her, there is no other option." the Headmaster spoke, quietly.  "I assume a young girl of Miss Granger's current physical appearance would raise some questions if she was not sent with James."

"And what do we tell the boys?  Or anyone else who asks, for that matter." Euphemia questioned, assuming a young girl living in her home would not exactly "fly under the radar".

"You've just adopted a girl who needed a home.  I'm sure young James will be thrilled to have a sister."

Hermione's face felt hot, as she began to feel the nerves that accompanied the fear that Euphemia and Fleamont didn't want to take on the responsibility of another child.  Euphemia stood and took a seat next to Hermione, holding one of her hands in comfort.  

"I've always wanted a daughter," she said, smiling from ear to ear.  "And of course you'll need a mother while you're here, who else will keep you out of trouble?"  Noticing Hermione's continued discomfort, Euphemia wondered if it lied in the idea of having to call her "mum".  She did have her own mother, in her own time, it just didn't feel right.  "How about you call me ... Mummy Eu?  And this, of course, will be Da!  That's what the boys call us anyway."

Beginning to take comfort in the fact that the Potters will willing to accept her as one of their own, Hermione beamed.

"Perfect."
