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?


18. Together



Meadow looked up from her Muggle book - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - to find Albus standing in front of her.

"Yeah?" she replied.

"Is it true that Mum and Dad are gonna adopt you?" he asked her, sitting next to her.

"Yeah." Meadow replied. From what she'd heard, the adoption process was very long and complicated. She was going to take an extra week off from Hogwarts so that it could be completed. Professor Slughorn, head of the Slytherin House, and Professor McGonagall, the headmistress, were to help her catch up. She wouldn't be able to spend actual family time with the Potters until Easter, since Scorpius was arriving the next day and staying until after Christmas hols.

"That's . . . great." Al said with great reluctance.

"What's wrong with it?" Meadow was hurt, and her voice had become very quiet.

"No . . . it's great you're gonna be my sister. I just . . . there's not much of an age difference, and I don't want a twin sister." he was trying to recover from delivering such a low blow.

"There's an age difference. I'm . . ." she stumbled a little bit before finishing with "two months older. That's a lot of time to be in labor."

It was true, physically. Albus's birthday was in August, Meadow's in June. Meadow just didn't want him to be freaked out that his new sister was 36 years older than him.

"But it's not a big age difference." Al whined.

Meadow sighed. "Look, Albus, you're my little brother now, and I promise to be a good big sister. Want me to hold your hand?" she replied jokingly.

Al caught on. "Otay, sissy."

Meadow laughed and gripped his hand, blushing a little, then let go after a while.

Harry came up to the attic and stuck his head in. "You two want to watch a film?" he asked.

"What's a film?" Meadow asked.

"You'll find out, come on!" Al replied as Harry left, dragging Meadow to the living room.
