Chapter 4: Recovering From Death

Friday, September 13th, 1991

After Neville's accident in their first flying lesson the school brooms were all checked over to make sure that another accident didn't occur. Harry and Susan stood next to their brooms listening to Madam Hooch telling them what they were going to do.

"I don't know how we're going to do this. It's hard enough to walk with our vision." said Susan.

"I know, but if we asked either Professor McGonagall or Professor Sprout to excuse us people would wonder why." said Harry.

"Now mount your brooms and lift off slowly, not too high, and take a couple laps around the pitch." said Madam Hooch.

The first years all followed what she said.

"With us doing the same thing it doesn't seem…" started Harry.

"We need to land!" yelled Susan.

Harry and Susan both landed quickly and threw up. Madam Hooch flew over to them.

"Are the two of you ok?" asked Madam Hooch.

"I just got dizzy." said Harry and Susan.

"Do you need the Hospital Wing?" asked Madam Hooch.

"I don't think so." said Harry.

"I think I just need to get some water and sit down." said Susan.

"Ok, if you don't feel better after resting a bit go see Madam Pomfrey." said Madam Hooch.

"We will." said Harry and Susan.

Harry and Susan started walking back to the castle.

"Which one of us got dizzy?" asked Harry.

"Does it matter? We both have two vomit tastes in our mouths and it's making me want to throw up again." said Susan.

"Stop thinking about it or I'm going to again." said Harry.

"It's hard not to think about it. I think we're going to need more than water to get this taste out. We need Pumpkin Juice or something, but neither of us knows the way to the kitchens." asked Susan.

"We need to find Fred and George Weasley. I heard they know how to get in the kitchens." said Harry.

Harry and Susan hurried to the Gryffindor Common Room as that was the only place they knew to find Fred and George.

"We need to start looking for out of sight places we can teleport to." said Susan resisting the urge to throw up.

Luckily or unluckily Fred and George were in the common room.

"Fred, George. Can you tell us where to find the kitchens?" asked Harry.

"Look, George. It's Harry and his Hufflepuff "friend"." said Fred.

"What could two ickle first years want to find the kitchens for?" asked George.

"It's important." said Harry and Susan both looking sick.

"George I think we should help them unless you want them to get sick on us." said Fred.

"I agree my less handsome brother." said George.

Fred and George took Harry and Susan to the kitchens where the House Elves gave them all the Pumpkin Juice they wanted.

"Harry, since we helped you do you think you might be willing to help us by explaining something we've noticed since the first night we got here?" asked Fred seriously which surprised Harry.

"If I can." said Harry.

"Well you see, Harry we have a map that allows us to see everybody in the castle wherever they are. It's come in handy avoiding the professor's and Filch." said George.

"But since the night of the sorting we noticed little Miss Bones here joining you in your bed." said Fred.

"What are we going to do, Harry?" asked Susan.

"I don't know." said Harry. "Have you mentioned this to anyone?"

"You wound us, Harry. While we think it might be a bit early for you to be doing that sort of thing. We would never turn in fellow rule breakers." said George.

"We're not doing anything." said Harry and Susan blushing.

"Your red faces implies otherwise." said Fred and George.

"What we want to know is how. In the times we've seen on the map, Susan just appears next to your dot on the map. She doesn't walk from Hufflepuff to Gryffindor. She just appears from her dorm to yours." said Fred.

"I guess it couldn't hurt anything to tell them. We just have to make them give us their oaths." said Harry.

"Ok, but if anyone else finds out we might as well put an announcement in the Daily Prophet." said Susan.

"What just happened there?" asked Fred.

"You two looked like you were talking, but you didn't say anything." said George.

"We'll let you know, but we need to have you give an oath to not reveal what we tell you without our permission." said Susan.

"Is this that much of a secret that you need an oath?" asked Fred.

"Dumbledore agreed when my Auntie asked for an oath from Professor Dumbledore, McGonagall and Sprout." said Susan.

Fred and George both gave their oaths and Harry and Susan told them everything they knew about their connection except the part about them being married.

"So you both can teleport anywhere in the castle?" asked George.

"We haven't done it much except for when Susan teleports to my bed and the times we've shown Susan's Aunt and the professor's." said Harry.

"We also don't know what would happen if we teleported into a spot that someone else was and with us keeping this a secret we can't teleport where someone will see us appear." said Susan.

"If you agree to help us with some of our activities we'll let you have the map. That way you can see if anyone is around before teleporting somewhere." said Fred.

"That would be great." said Harry and Susan.

"The possibilities for pranking are endless." said Fred and George smiling before showing Harry and Susan how to work the map.

The next morning while everyone was eating breakfast the doors to the Great Hall slammed open and Professor McGonagall and Professor Snape stormed in. Professor Snape's yell of, "WEASLEY'S!" got everyone's attention and they saw that instead of their normal robes the two professor's were wearing very long T-Shirts with writing on them. Professor Snape's said, I Love Pussy and had a picture that looked like Professor McGonagall's Animagus form. Professor McGonagall's said, I've Got An Itch That Only Snape Can Scratch.

September and October went by. Classes were going ok, but it was getting to be very boring since they were essentially doing the same classes more than once. They talked to Dumbledore about it and he said that they would see if there was anything to do that wouldn't raise questions, but they might just have to deal with it.

Harry and Susan woke up on Halloween feeling depressed. Susan tried to comfort Harry at breakfast and she could feel that he appreciated it, but he wouldn't cheer up.

In Charms class they were learning the Levitation Charm and Hermione and Ron were sitting at the table behind them. Harry and Susan had talked to both of them a couple times, but didn't hang out with either of them much. Hermione was trying to tell Ron the correct pronunciation for the spell and Ron was refusing to listen. He finally yelled at her that if she knew so much for her to do the spell which Hermione did perfectly earning five points from Professor Flitwick.

When class ended Harry went with Ron, Seamus and Dean to head towards Transfiguration and Ron said how Hermione was a bloody know-it-all and that that's why she had no friends. Hermione heard him and she ran off crying. Harry was already in a bad mood and while not one of his friends, Hermione didn't deserve that.

Harry grabbed Ron by the robes and slammed him into the wall.

"Harry!" yelled Susan, but Harry ignored her.

"What the hell is your problem, Weasley!? All Hermione did was try to help you and all your stupid arse can do is make fun of her!" yelled Harry.

"Harry, calm down and let him go. Please." said Susan.

That time Harry listened to her and he walked away from the others.

"I'm sorry, Susan. I don't know what got over me." said Harry.

"I just felt you get really mad and it made me mad as well. I thought you were going to hurt him." said Susan.

"I thought I was too." said Harry.

Hermione didn't show up the rest of the day and when Harry and Susan got to the feast they didn't see her either.

"Go sit by Lavender and Parvati and see if they know where she is." said Susan.

"I wish I didn't have to sit away from you." said Harry.

"It'll be ok. We'll leave the feast as soon as we can and go to bed early." said Susan.

Harry asked Lavender and Parvati if they knew where Hermione was and they said she was crying in the girl's bathroom on the second floor.

The feast went on for a little while, but was interrupted by Professor Quirrell barging into the Great Hall yelling about a Troll being in the dungeons. Dumbledore ordered the prefects to take the students back to their houses. Harry was about halfway to Gryffindor Tower when either him or Susan remembered that Hermione didn't know about the Troll.

"Head to the bathroom and I'll teleport there as soon as I get away from everyone." said Harry.

Harry tried to get away but Percy caught him and he had to go all the way to the Gryffindor Common Room. Susan got Hermione and they were about to leave the bathroom to go to the Hufflepuff Common Room when the Troll entered the bathroom and tried to crush Hermione and Susan. As Susan and Hermione tried to get away from the Troll, Harry ran upstairs and teleported as soon as the door to the dorm room shut and appeared behind the Troll.

"How did you…" started Hermione when she saw him appear.

"Later, Hermione!" yelled Susan.

Harry started throwing debris at the Troll to distract it which made the Troll come after him.

"Susan, grab Hermione and teleport out of here!" yelled Harry as he dodged the Troll's club.

Susan wanted to argue, but grabbed Hermione's arm and disappeared. Harry took his eyes off the troll for a second so he could teleport to Susan and the Troll's club hit him in the midsection and he was slammed into the wall head first.

Hospital Wing

Harry opened his eyes and saw that he wasn't in his bed. Susan was laying on him like she always did, but the bed wasn't as comfortable and there were others around him. He tried to find his glasses, but realized that he could see perfectly without them.

"Susan, wake up." said Harry.

"Mmm. Don't wanna." said Susan cuddling into him more.

"We're not alone, Susan." said Harry.

"Fine." said Susan.

"Can someone tell me what happened?" asked Harry as Susan got up.

"I'd like to know that too, Mr. Potter." said Madame Pomfrey.

"As would everyone here." said Amelia.

"Mr. Potter if you would give us permission to discuss this we need to bring Madam Pomfrey up to date." said Dumbledore.

"You have my permission, Professor." said Harry.

Dumbledore explained to Madam Pomfrey about their connection as briefly as possible.

"Thank you, Professor. That explains some things. Mr. Potter what is the last thing you remember?" asked Madam Pomfrey.

"I told Susan to teleport with Hermione and then I tried to teleport but was hit by the Troll's club. Then I woke up here. How long have I been unconscious?" asked Harry.

"You've been here for 12 hours Mr. Potter, but you weren't unconscious when you arrived. You and Miss Bones were both dead." said Madam Pomfrey.

"Perhaps it would be best if I showed you the memory of when you were found." said Dumbledore.

"The memory is mine, Mr. Potter." said Professor McGonagall while placing the memory in the Pensieve.

Memory Start

Minerva, along with Severus and Quirinus ran into the bathroom and quickly dispatched the Troll and were about to start repairing the bathroom when she saw the body by the wall. Minerva ran to the body and noticed immediately who it was.

"It's Potter! Severus, get Poppy immediately!" said Minerva.

She didn't know that many medical spells, but she did know the diagnostic charm. She cast it and refused to believe what the results told her.

Severus returned with Poppy and she got out of the way so Poppy could do her job.

Poppy ran her wand over Harry's body several times before saying, "I'm sorry, Minerva. There's nothing I can do. He's dead."

Poppy levitated Harry's body and they started towards the Hospital Wing when Hermione ran to them crying and yelling for them to help her. Minerva followed her and found Susan laying on the ground not moving. Minerva levitated Susan and told Hermione to follow her to the Hospital Wing.

When they entered Poppy had already placed Harry on a bed. Minerva placed Susan on the bed next to Harry and Poppy checked on her and told her that Susan was dead also. Minerva tried to get Hermione to tell her what happened to Susan, but Hermione was hysterical and Poppy had to give her a potion to put her to sleep.

All of a sudden a crackling noise brought their attention back to Harry and Susan. Sparks were shooting through their bodies and out their fingers. Minerva told Poppy to get the Dumbledore. Harry and Susan started to convulse. Minerva quickly expanded Harry's bed and removed Harry's robes and shirt finding that the sparks weren't dangerous to her. She then picked up Susan and placed her on Harry's bed. Harry's and Susan's hands instantly connected and a dome surrounded them as Susan curled up onto Harry's chest.

Minerva, Dumbledore and Poppy watched in amazement as Harry's injuries including his head, which was smashed open, healed themselves.

Memory End

"The dome disappeared about thirty minutes before you woke up. It seems that you have found another ability in this type of healing magic from your connection. It even healed your eyesight as you noticed, Mr. Potter." said Dumbledore.

"But why did Susan die? Why were we able to be brought back when we were both dead? There's more questions than answers, Professor." said Harry.

"Until we know what this connection is and what caused it we're always going to have more questions than answers, Mr. Potter, but I think it's safe to say that Miss Bones died because you died. As connected as you are I should've considered this. I don't understand how you were brought back, but I am very grateful that you did." said Dumbledore.

"Is Hermione ok?" asked Susan.

"She's fine, but she has a lot of questions for you." said Dumbledore.

"I'm sure she does. So when can we get out of here?" asked Harry.

"Mr. Potter, since you and Miss Bones just recovered from dying you'll at least be staying until tomorrow morning." said Madam Pomfrey.

The professor's left and Madam Pomfrey went to her office. Amelia came and sat down next to Susan's side of the bed and started crying.

"Auntie?" asked Susan.

"You almost died. No, you did die, Susan." cried Amelia.

"I'm fi…" started Susan.

"Don't say you're fine, Susan. This is anything, but fine. You died! Because of him! You were dead, Susan! Do you understand that!? Dead!" yelled Amelia.

"Madam Bones…" started Harry.

"Harry, don't." said Susan.

"Madam Bones, Susan means everything to me. Yes, it's probably because of our connection, but it doesn't make it any less true. I care about her as much as you do and I would do everything I can to make sure she's safe. I told Susan to take Hermione because I wanted her away from the danger. We had no idea this could happen and I'm sorry that it did. If it makes you feel better to blame me I don't care." said Harry.

"Knowing what happened and the result, would you do it again?" asked Amelia.

"I would." said Harry without thinking.

"Harry, that's not what she wants to hear." said Susan.

"It's the truth." said Harry.

"Harry, I'll be honest with you. I don't like you. For the simple fact that you are in every sense of the word connected to my eleven year old niece, who for all intents and purposes is my daughter. I might, as you said in our previous meeting, have to get used to you, but I'm not there yet and I don't like you. However, as Head of the D.M.L.E. I like your answer and you'd make a good Auror when you're older. I was considering telling Susan that I wasn't ready to deal with her sharing a bed at home for the holidays, but after almost losing her, I want her home. So I am inviting you to spend the holidays with us. I won't promise that I'll be ok, but I'll try my best." said Amelia.

"Thank you, Madam Bones." said Harry.

"You can call me, Amelia." said Amelia.

"What about, Auntie?" said Harry and Susan giggled.

"Call me that and you won't leave this Hospital Wing for a month." said Amelia.

"Your Aunt is scary." said Harry.

"You haven't seen anything yet." said Susan.

"Are you talking about me?" asked Amelia.

"No." said Harry and Susan.
