Fred's NOT Dead

Fredell and Georgina Gryffindor are the twin daughters of Sadie and Augustus Gryffindor. When they receive their letters to Hogwarts, they are told they can not attend because there is no way the family can get to London, twice every year, and pay for their school supplies on their budget. Deciding they could not miss this chance, the girls make every effort to make it to the train before it leaves on September first. Meanwhile in London, Hermione is convinced she's found Fred. The Weasley twin was assumed dead after disappearing during the Battle of Hogwarts.

5. Chapter 5: Food for Thought

Hermione sat at next to her daughter Rose at the dinner table, Hugo sitting on her other side.

"So, how was it?" Ron asked, after swallowing his bite of chicken.

"Good. They really wanted to go into Weasley Wizard Wheezes though." Hermione said.

"Are you talking about those new girls your helping go to Hogwarts?" Hugo asked and Rose looked up as well.

"Yes, and they should be in your year." Hermione said.

"What was wrong with the joke shop? I was kind of looking forward to meeting them." Ron asked, returning the conversation to her trip.

"While I wouldn't have minded them meeting you, I was worried it might trigger something with George. Not to mention the man looks identical to their father." Hermione replied.

"Can I be excused? Albus said I could come over tonight." Hugo asked.

"Yes. Don't forget to pack your toothbrush, and I dug up some old photos I wanted to have you give to Ginny." Hermione said.

"Alright. I'll be in my room." Hugo said and left, dropping his plate in the sink on his way out.

"Can I go too?" Rose asked and Ron nodded. Rose hopped up and skipped after her brother.

"So you were worried about..." Ron asked and Hermione rolled her eyes.

"Never mind. I told them we could go at Christmas, by which time, they probably would have heard of George anyway." Hermione said and finished her food as well.

"I could have kept George in the back working on stuff while they were in there." Ron said.

"And what would you have done when the girls recognized some of the products as ones their father makes? I saw his shop. They are almost identical." Hermione said.

"Ok, you have a point. So are you going back over tomorrow or..."

"No, I talked to Sadie, and since we picked up everything today and Fred and George got an owl, she said she'd write if she needed anything, but I probably won't need to go except to apperate everyone over. Fleur sent over a chocolate cake, would you like a piece?" Hermione said, standing up.

"Yeah. Ok, so my wife will calm down and drop this whole obsession till September first?"

"August 31st. Their coming over the night before and staying at the Leaky Cauldron. But yes. I will drop the matter and spend my time with my family and help my own children prepare for Hogwarts." Hermione promised and cut two slices of cake. She handed one to Ron and sat down in Rose's usual spot next to Ron.

A/N: Sorry for the short chapter, the next one will probably be the second to last. So, unfortunately, this is going to be a short book, but I don't see a reason to explain what they do all summer leading up to leaving for Hogwarts, and well, you'll see when I publish the next chapter.
