Once, Harry Potter was told that there were three unregistered animagi by his godfather, Sirius Black. But Sirius was wrong... there were four.


4. Chapter 4


After roaming the woods with my friends, we had to bring Remus back to the Shrieking Shack so he could become human again. I knew that my parents would want to hear that I had made it safely to Hogwarts. With all the rumors of attacks from dark wizards, they would be worried sick. I wandered up to the owlery, my invisibility cloak covering me. The cloak had been a gift from my grandfather; it had been passed down through the Potter family for years.

My owl, Athena, was out hunting, so I used one of the school owls. Then, a beautiful snow white owl flew in. But to my dismay, she didn't land. She changed. Her wings grew into arms, her talons into feet. Her body became human. And standing before me was Lily Evans. How had I never known that Sirius, Peter, and I weren't the only Animagi at Hogwarts? I had an urge to pull off my cloak and reveal myself, but I also didn't want her to know. Why was she out tonight? Did she go out every night? How did I never look at our map and see her flying around the grounds?

Then, I decided that I would tell her that I was there. I lowered the hood of my cloak, and undid it, letting it drop to the ground. Lily gasped, and spun around.

"James? James Potter?" she demanded, "What are you doing here? What did you see?"

"I saw it all, Lily," I explained, "How did you do it?"
"Do what? Become an Animagus? You did it. Sirius did it. Even Peter did it! Why would you think I couldn't do it?" she asked.

"I should of asked why," I retorted.

"I did it because I wanted to, James. Can we just leave it at that?" she sighed. I nodded, and sighed.

"Do you need a safe way back to the dormitories? There's plenty of room under my invisibility cloak," I offered. She nodded, and I covered us both while crouching as we slunk towards Gryffindor tower.
