The upload rate is currently at 6 chapters per week, I may increase it in the future if I have more time. I do not have specific days or times for the uploads because my full-time job has an erratic schedule so I upload whenever I have the time. But you can expect 6 new chapters by the end of the week. Sorry for the inconvenience, I hope my readers understand. A.N - - No harem - There will be a lot of violence, so be warned. - The pacing will not be too fast, this is going to be longer than my previous fic so be patient.

Chapter 236: Wanna Dance?

"Hold your horses, redhead. I was going to ask Harry for a dance first." Katie Bell stood from her seat to get closer.

"What, Katie? You can go with one of the seniors," Ginny told her.

"Why should I? I'm only a year older than Harry. Isn't that right, Harry?" Katie asked him.

'Why did they have to make this a dance?...' Harry lamented.

"Oh… Lyra…" Neville called for his sister with a nervous voice.

"Yes?" She turned to look at the boy.

"Ehmm… this… could you…" He pointed with his finger.

"What is this?" Harry raised his voice. "What are you going to ask my little sister?"

Neville's eyes opened widely and he got even more nervous.

"Harry, stop! Don't scare poor Neville." Lyra glared at him with a deep frown.

"No… I…" Neville tried to point again. His eyes moved to the potato salad in front of Lyra.

"She is just in her second year." Harry huffed.

'If Neville thinks he can take advantage of my family…even if it's him...'

"So what? If he wants to ask me to the dance, he is free to do so!" Lyra snapped. "You were going to dance with Ginny, weren't you?"

"No one is dancing with Ginny!" Ron exclaimed.

"Shut up, Ron!" Ginny smacked his head hard enough to almost dunk his face on his plate.

"You know what?" Lyra turned to Neville.

"I would love to dance with you, Neville, thank you for asking me."

"Huh… ah… yes…" The boy sat back down and kept his head lowered.

"Neville," Seamus shook his shoulder. "Did you get the potatoes?"

"Shut up, Seamus!" Neville snapped at him.

"What?... what did I do?" Seamus looked baffled.


Once dinner was concluded, a music band appeared on the newly made platform and started playing music.

Students, professors, and other guests made their way to the center.

"Sorry, I know you don't like dancing that much…" Ginny said.

"I don't mind if it's just this much. I'm just… really bad at it," Harry told her.

"You are not that bad!" She hurried to say.

His green eyes went to a couple dancing close by.

Ginny saw this and grinned.

"You are very protective of Lyra."

"I just… I don't want anyone to hurt my family." Harry confessed.

"You think I am exaggerating?" He asked her.

Ginny shrugged.

"My brothers are the same. But I don't think you have to worry about anyone hurting your sister. Especially Neville… he is terrified of you."

"Yes, I was surprised he even asked her to dance," said Harry.

"Mmm… that was weirdly brave of him." Ginny chuckled.

"You know… not long ago, you were obsessed with his books. What happened to that Ginny?"

She lifted her amber eyes to meet his.

"Reality hit her in the face…"

"You didn't have the best Hogwarts experience, huh?" said Harry. In her first two years of school, this girl had already been attacked by some of the most deadly creatures.

"The Headmaster likes to say it's the safest place in the country… I don't know about that." Ginny chuckled. "But I was always saved in the end, so it's fine."

The song ended.

"I think I'm going to go sit with Luna for a bit," said Ginny.

"The other girls are going to lynch me if I try to keep you for longer."

"The other girls?..." Harry raised an eyebrow.

A group of girls were sitting nearby and staring at him.

"I thought most of the school was scared of me," Harry said.

Ginny smiled.

"The boys? Yes… the girls?... who knows… but I got the first dance." She gave him a playful wink before walking away.

"Tell Lyra to stay in the hall," Harry reminded her.

"It's my turn now!"

He saw Angelina Johnson approaching with a seductive grin.



When Pansy finally let him go, he felt a strong pull on his arm.

When he turned around, he found himself face to face with Daphne.

'She is mad…' Daphne always ends up calling him Potter when she is angry.

"What did I do?..." he asked.

"If you are done having fun with half the girls in the hall… I think there is something you should hear," Daphne said in a cold tone.

"That was hardly half the girls in the hall… and it would have been impolite to refuse," said Harry.

"What happened?"

The music started again. Harry realized they couldn't just stand there and talk, so he grabbed her arms and put them around his neck.

Daphne raised an eyebrow but did not complain and soon started dancing with him.

"The Minister has been whispering something to a few young men before they left the hall. Also, most of the seniors in my house are acting very suspicious… all of them are sitting down and looking around the room, like they are waiting for something to happen."

"Not bad…" Harry also noticed those things, but the difference was that he already knew that something was going to happen.

"You knew," Daphne stated.

"It's okay, I already know who the targets are. Just make sure that…" Harry stopped midsentence when he noticed someone was missing.

"She was here a moment ago… where is she?"

"Who?" Daphne asked.

"My sister, Lyra. She is gone…."

"She must be with…" Daphne's eyes narrowed.

"I can't find my sister either!"
