Chapter 10: A Rough Start to the Summer
As soon as they arrived at the Burrow the problems started.
"Boys, Ginny, take your trunks to your rooms." said Mrs. Weasley.
"Where am I staying, Mrs. Weasley?" asked Jasmine.
"You'll be with Ron." said Mrs. Weasley.
"Mum, shouldn't Jasmine stay in my room?" asked Ginny.
"That wouldn't be appropriate." said Mrs. Weasley.
"Why not? She's a girl. I'm a girl." said Ginny.
"Well… she's not…" started Mrs. Weasley.
"I think she means to say that I'm not a real girl." said Jasmine.
"Is that what this is about Mum?" asked Ginny.
Mrs. Weasley stayed silent.
"I think your silence means exactly that and if I'm not wanted here I'll leave now." said Jasmine crying and running out the door.
Jasmine ran all the way out to the road and drew her wand causing the Knight Bus to appear in front of her. She told Stan that she wanted to go to the Diggory's and when she was asked for payment she was lucky that she had enough on her as she had left her trunk and Hedwig at the Burrow. When the Knight Bus stopped she exited to see a beautiful mansion and walked up to the gate where a House Elf appeared.
"I'm Tweedle. What is your business with House Diggory?" asked Tweedle.
"I'm Jasmine Potter. I'm here to see Cedric." said Jasmine.
Tweedle waved his hand and opened the gate.
"Please take my hand, Miss Potter." said Tweedle.
Jasmine took his hand and was apparated to a sitting room.
"Please wait here while I bring Master Diggory." said Tweedle.
Jasmine didn't have to wait long before Amos, Cedric and a woman came in. Cedric could tell that she'd been crying.
"What happened, Jasmine?" asked Cedric while guiding her to sit down.
Jasmine told them what happened at the Weasley's and that she didn't know where else to go but here.
"It's fine, dear. If you ever find yourself in any situation where you need somewhere to go do not hesitate to come to us." said the woman.
"Jasmine, this is my mum, Beatrice. Mum this is my girlfriend, Jasmine Potter." said Cedric.
"It's a pleasure to meet you, Mrs. Diggory. I'm sorry it isn't under better circumstances." said Jasmine.
"Don't worry, darling. We'll figure things out and please call me Beatrice." said Beatrice.
"I don't know what to do. How could Mrs. Weasley not think I'm a real girl? It's not about sharing a room with Ron. Ron's my friend and he'd give me the privacy I need, but it shouldn't have even been an issue. Me and Ginny already assumed we'd be sharing a room. I appreciate you saying that I could come here, but I know I can't stay here. It wouldn't be appropriate to live with my boyfriend would it?" asked Jasmine.
"No, but I don't think a few days would be too bad as long as you and Cedric can behave yourselves. I think we need to talk to the Weasley's though and see what the issue is." said Amos.
Amos floo called the Weasley's and Mr. Weasley invited them over for dinner. The four of them flooed over and the twins, Ron and Ginny all hugged Jasmine.
"Dad took care of everything." said Fred.
"He got right scary." said George.
"Your trunk and Hedwig's cage are in our room. Hedwig is hunting." said Ginny.
"Thank you. Ron, I want you to know…" started Jasmine.
"I know it had nothing to do with sharing a room with me. Mum shouldn't have done that, Jasmine." said Ron.
"When did you get so wise?" asked Jasmine.
"Well having two girls as best friends it was bound to happen." said Ron laughing.
"You should go in the kitchen. Dad wanted to talk to you before dinner." said Percy.
Jasmine, Cedric and his parents went into the kitchen and saw Mr. and Mrs. Weasley sitting down. Everyone sat down except for Jasmine.
"Mr. and Mrs. Weasley I want to apologize for running off like that." said Jasmine.
"Jasmine, you have nothing to apologize for. I should've came and seen you while you were still at Hogwart's and told you the truth. Arthur said that you could stay with us and I disagreed. I can see clearly that you are a girl, but you used to be a boy. I even at one point thought that maybe you would one day date Ginny and maybe even marry her. I told you that you'd be in Ron's room in the hopes that you'd go somewhere else. I wish I could apologize, but I don't think I have anything to be sorry for. It's just the way I feel." said Mrs. Weasley.
"Mrs. Weasley, it hurts me the way you feel, but I can't hold that against you except for the fact that you are wrong on one thing. I was never a boy. Physically I looked like one and had boy parts, but I've always been a girl. I won't stay where I am not wanted. I appreciate you allowing me to stay Mr. Weasley, but I will have to find another living situation. Mr. and Mrs. Diggory may I stay with you for a couple days until I can figure something out?" asked Jasmine.
"Of course, Jasmine." said Beatrice.
"I'll go get my things. I'm sorry, but I think for now that I don't want to stay for dinner." said Jasmine.
Jasmine left the kitchen and got her things and told the other Weasley's that she didn't hold anything against them. She also asked Ginny to send Hedwig to the Diggory's when she got back in.
Jasmine and the Diggory's flooed back to the mansion and Amos asked Tweedle to fix them a quick dinner. Jasmine ate a little, but was still upset and asked to be excused and shown where she'd be sleeping. Cedric showed her where the guest rooms were.
"Are you going to be ok?" asked Cedric.
"I'm sure I'll be fine. I just never thought that Mrs. Weasley would think like that." said Jasmine.
"I'm going to ask Mum and Dad to let you stay here." said Cedric.
"No, Cedric. Your family is great, but you're my boyfriend and I don't want them to constantly be watching us." said Jasmine.
"Where will you go?" asked Cedric.
"I'm going to get a room at the Leaky Cauldron like I did last summer." said Jasmine.
"Are you sure? I don't like the idea of you staying there." said Cedric.
"It'll be ok. Besides we'll still have a few days together before then and we still have the World Cup to look forward to. You'll be able to see me anytime you want also." said Jasmine.
"I could see you anytime if you were here also." said Cedric.
"You know your parents wouldn't let us be alone. They'd always want to keep an eye on us." said Jasmine.
"Just think about it. I still want to see what they'll say." said Cedric pulling Jasmine into a kiss.
"Ok. I'll think about it." said Jasmine.
The next morning Jasmine was woken up by Tweedle.
"Miss Potter, Mistress would like to see you in the kitchen." said Tweedle.
Jasmine got up and dressed and went to the kitchen.
"Good morning, Jasmine. Would you mind helping me with breakfast?" asked Beatrice.
Jasmine started working on the bacon.
"Sometimes I like to give Tweedle a break on cooking. He absolutely hates it though." said Beatrice grinning at Tweedle.
"Whatever makes the Mistress happy." said Tweedle.
"I thought we'd talk about some things. Just us girls. You know that Cedric asked us if you could stay last night?" asked Beatrice.
"Yes, he told me that he was going to do that. I told him that I didn't think it was a good idea since we're boyfriend and girlfriend." said Jasmine.
"I'm sorry if this is too personal, but how far have you two gone in your relationship?" asked Beatrice.
Jasmine blushed at the question.
"We've made out, but nothing further than kissing and touching over clothes." said Jasmine.
"But you want to do more?" asked Beatrice.
"Yes." said Jasmine quietly, but Beatrice still heard.
"Amos and I talked last night and would like to offer for you to stay with us. I understand the urges you are having, but I would ask you to please restrain those feelings. Have you been given the talk?" asked Beatrice.
"Yes. Madam Pomfrey went over everything with me." said Jasmine.
"Well Amos and I won't be watching you all the time, but making out or snogging, however you want to call it is ok, but we would prefer if other activities didn't happen. However should they occur I would appreciate not becoming a grandmother so soon." said Beatrice.
Jasmine was really blushing now.
"I think snogging will be fine for now. If you and Amos are sure I would like to accept staying here." said Jasmine.
"Wonderful. Now let's get cleaned up so Tweedle can bring all this food into the Dining Room and we can go eat with the boys." said Beatrice.
The food was already on the table when the two of them entered the Dining Room.
"Did the two of you have a good talk?" asked Amos as they sat down.
"Yes we did. Jasmine has accepted our offer to stay here. Cedric, after breakfast why don't you help Jasmine pick out a room on the family level." said Beatrice.
"Ok, Mum. I'm glad you changed your mind, Jasmine." said Cedric.
"Me too." said Jasmine taking a bite of her bacon.
"Don't forget to save some of the bacon for Hedwig. She'll never forgive you if you don't." said Cedric laughing.
"Where is Hedwig?" asked Jasmine.
"She's in the mail room with Persephone. She arrived last night after you went to bed." said Amos.
After you choose your room she can join you in there if you want. We have a perch you can have for her." said Beatrice.
"Thank you. Hedwig never liked being caged at the Dursley's." said Jasmine.
"Cedric has told us some things, but how is it that you ended up with the Dursley's?" asked Amos.
"Well I don't know everything, but I have been able to piece some information together. My Godfather, Sirius Black was sent to Azkaban so Hagrid took me to the Dursley's on Dumbledore's orders since my Aunt Petunia was my mum's last living relative. I don't know if there are any other Potter's from my dad's side though." said Jasmine.
"I'm sorry, but there aren't, but I know there are several families who were allies of the Potter's that would've taken you in, but perhaps Dumbledore thought it best for you to be with blood relatives." said Amos.
"Yeah." said Jasmine.
"Cedric says that you're Seeker for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team. He also said that in your last match that he caught the Snitch in unfair conditions. Nasty things those Dementor's. What would you say to a small Seeker's duel? A kind of rematch between the two of you." said Amos.
"That sounds great." said Jasmine with Cedric agreeing.
"Excellent. Now normally a Seeker's duel requires two Snitches, but your mother is looking forward to a shopping trip today so we will have one Snitch and once released the two of you will wait two minutes before going after it." said Amos as they all went out back.
Tweedle brought Jasmine and Cedric their brooms. Amos pulled Cedric aside.
"As an incentive if you win I'll get you a Firebolt also." whispered Amos knowing he was still loud for the others to hear.
"Don't count on getting that Firebolt, pretty boy." said Jasmine giggling.
"We'll see." said Cedric.
Jasmine and Cedric mounted their brooms and Amos tossed the Snitch in the air. For the two minutes Jasmine and Cedric kept up the trash talk but at the two minute mark they both sped off towards the direction they saw the Snitch go. Both of them should've know it wasn't going to be that easy as the Snitch had already disappeared so they started searching for it. Jasmine thought about trying a feint, but with the area the Snitch could be in being so large she didn't want to start one only for Cedric to see the Snitch for real and have her be out of position.
It was then that she actually saw the Snitch. It was hovering above Amos' head and he was trying to get Cedric's attention. Jasmine shot forward just as Cedric finally saw his dad and the race was started. The Snitch sensing the two of them shot up and it was just like their Quidditch game. They went higher and higher in the air, but this time with no Dementor's Jasmine snatched the Snitch out of the air.
"I guess you'll just have to stick with borrowing my Firebolt, Cedric." said Jasmine when they landed.
"I don't know about that. You both did amazing, but I think I want my son to have as good of a broom as his girlfriend and competition.
"Well next year we'll have to see who is the best on the Firebolt." said Cedric.
"It's not just the broom, but the rider, pretty boy." said Jasmine while pulling Cedric into a kiss.
Amos and Beatrice just laughed.
