3. The Letter
I went and sat on the floor. I missed my Momma, and Daddy. I haven't seen him sense the night at our house. It was so puzzling, and I was only three. I didn't deserve this. I didn't want this to be my life. I just had to know it was practically killing me.
"What happen to y Daddy?" Mrs. and Mr. Weasley looked worriedly at each other.
"Do you remember that creepy guy that came here the other night?"
"Uh-huh." Mr. Weasley took a big breath.
"Well he... Came to your house that same night... Your father tried to save you and your mother... And.. And is gone because of it.." Tears slid down my cheeks. So that's why we came here. That's why my Mom was crying, that's also why I haven't seen Daddy. I couldn't believe it. The man that I resembled, the man I wanted to grow up to be.. Was gone. I would never see him again. Ever. The Weasleys all gathered around me and hugged me and said things like " we're so sorry" or "it'll be alright Nev". It made me fell better and I then left and went to my room, where I fell asleep.
It was dusk when Mrs. Weasley woke me up.
"Neville, you Mum's letter's arrived." I got up and rushed down the stairs. I saw it on the table, and relieve washed over me. Mommy was still alive. It would be okay in the end. I ripped the parchment open and handed it to Percy to read. He read, "Dear Neville, I'm sorry that I had to leave you. I just want you to know that you're not the cause of it. I am afraid that if I stayed You-Know-Who might come for you. I want you to stay at the Weasleys where I know that you are being well cared for until I figure a few things out. I love you to Neptune and back, Mommy<3. And that's all it says." Percy said.
"Shanks, Perce," I told him.
"Well it looks like we have a new member of the family now, Molly. Neville if you would like, you can call me and Molly your Aunt and Uncle." Uncle Arthur smiled. I smiled back. It was good to know that my Mommy and the Weasleys loved me.
