What If: A Harry Potter Fanfiction

Most people never knew that Sirius Black had a daughter. Understandable, because Meadow Black was kept in an anti-aging spell for 36 years. Finally, she has awoken. Finally, she is off to Hogwarts. Finally, her life has begun. But will it end soon after beginning?


21. Dust to Dust

The custody court battle dragged on. Several times Meadow thought she would fall asleep and judge the conclusion based on where she woke up. However, she forced herself to stay awake in case she needed to testify.

Suddenly, a silvery owl flew into the room and landed on Johnson's shoulder. It said something that only he could hear, and he looked at it with wide eyes before telling it something. The owl flew out again.

"We have a surprise witness, it seems. Ms. Kaia Amanda Mason, biological mother of Miss Meadow Bellatrix Black, has come to testify." Johnson announced.

Faint murmurs ran wild in the room. A murderer? Here? In the Ministry of Magic's courtrooms?

Surrounded by guards, the barely-recognizable Kaia Mason was led into the room.

Kaia was in her mid sixties and had graying brown hair (A/N: she'd had Meadow at the age of 17, and since Meadow is chronologically 47 years of age at the moment, that makes Kaia 64 years old). She was skinnier than when Meadow had last seen her, and all traces of a smile had long since left her face. She was clad in tattered robes. She looked at Meadow with a small smile, however, and the look in her navy blue eyes told Meadow that her mother was almost the same.

Kaia made her way to the witness stands, and the guards stood off to the side with their wands pointed at her. Meadow felt so odd seeing this. Her face was a cherry red.

"My daughter has stated in letters that she is not happy living with my friend Vivian Kendricks... if I can even call her a friend anymore. I entrusted this woman with my only child that I carried for the only man I ever even looked at twice, and I have never regretted anything more. She is happy with the Potters. And the only thing I want for my child is for her to be safe and, above all, pleased with the life she has. That's the reason I put her under the anti-aging spell. I knew she couldn't be safe and happy after her father was accused of killing Padfoot and I arrested for my own crime. As a mother, if I can, I would like to shift custody of my only daughter to Harry and Ginevra Potter." Kaia announced. "I apologize for all the confusion this has caused. If I could have come sooner, I would have."

"Thank you, Ms. Mason." Johnson replied as she finished."You can say hello to your daughter outside." he nodded to Meadow, who was already stumbling over her feet to get out.
