Sequel - Dawn of the Phoenix: Cedric goes to Forks

Chapter 1: The Visitor

“Someone is coming to visit” Alice said, her eyes slightly unfocused. She was having one of her visions.

“Anyone we know?” Esme asked, nervously. It seemed that, in recent history anyway, those words were ominous… usually the beginning of trouble.

“No, nobody I recognize… Edward?”

I listened, trying to catch the thoughts of the approaching stranger… He knew Carlisle, or at least new of Carlisle. “Do you know someone called “Hagrid?” I asked Carlisle?

“Hagrid?” He replied… Hagrid… there is only one Hagrid I have ever heard of, and I wasn’t even sure if he was real… Could it be?

I puzzled over his thoughts. It was clear this was not someone Carlisle had met, but what did he mean that he wasn’t even sure he existed.

“Oh my… Oh my…” Alice’s face went blank again. I watched as she saw the stranger approaching… now noticing something was different, but it took me a few moments to figure out what. He was walking alone, but he seemed out of place, or wrong. Then I saw what it was – he was too big… Or the trees were too small. The landscape looked familiar – I could see the recognizable driveway up to our house, the familiar foliage lining the way… but this guy was huge in comparison.

“This Hagrid you knew of – was he… excessively large?” Alice asked.

Oh my, he is real… Carlisle’s thoughts alarmed me. “Esme prepare the house. I don’t know what to expect, but this is unusual. It is best to be prepared.”

Esme quickly flipped the switch that pulled metal shutters over the solid glass back of the house. Carlisle called us all down to the front room to prepare.

“We have a visitor – someone who, until now, I wasn’t even sure existed. His name is Hagrid – he his half giant, half human, or at least that is what the lore says. From what I had heard, he is friendly and is usually good hearted, but I don’t know anything for certain. As I said, until just now, I didn’t even know he existed for certain.”

The tension was high as we waited in silence, not sure what the night would bring. I was thankful that Bella was safely at home in her bed, though a part of me desperately wanted to have her by my side, just to know that she was safe with me. My logical side knew better. If things went terribly wrong tonight, it would be better that she was at home.

Thump, Thump, Thump… the knocking at the front door sounded like someone was trying to break it down with a club. Jasper, Emmet and I got in defensive positions around the door, prepared to jump in if needed. Alice’s face went blank as she focused on the immediate future. Esme and Roslie stood to one side, ready to attack if it came to that.

“It will be okay.” Alice finally said. We breathed a collective sigh of relief, “He has a message for Carlisle… and Edward. It affects us all.” Suddenly she was grinning. I searched her vision to see why.. Oh, this could be interesting.

“Well, I guess I should welcome our visitor,” Carlisle stated, not sure what Alice had seen but taking her word that there was no danger. “Good evening” he said to the stranger as he opened the door, “Welcome to my home. My name is Carlisle. Would you like to come in?”

“I’d be muc’ obliged.” A rough, booming voice replied back, as in walked the largest human we had ever seen. He had to stoop almost to his knees to clear the standard door frame and I wondered if, due to his width, he would fit at all. He was almost twice as tall as an average man and nearly five times as wide…

“Rubeus Hagrid’s th’ name. Everybody calls me Hagrid.”

“We’re very pleased to meet you” Carlisle offered his hand when Hagrid finally squeezed himself into our entry way. It was fortunate that our house was designed to be very open with high ceilings. As it was Hagrid had to sit on the floor to be able to carry on any type of conversation.

Carlisle then gestured back toward us… During the process of Hagrid’s entrance and settling in, we had all backed up considerably. Carlisle frowned slightly at what could be construed as our rudeness, as he introduced us, “Hagrid, this is my family: Esme, my wife, and our children, Edward, Rosalie and Emmet, Jasper and Alice. Everyone, come and meet Hagrid. He is an assistant to Dumbledore, a gentleman I was fortunate to have met some time ago.”

We all filed forward and greeted Hagrid in the order we were introduced.

“Well, then, the introductions are take’ care of… Down to business. Now where was me note…” he padded around his leather clothing, checking pockets and creases until he found was he was apparently looking for, “Ah, yes, here it is… An urgent letter from Albus Dumbledore.” He said as he presented an envelope to Carlisle.

The envelope looked as though it had come from another time, one closer to when Carlisle was changed then the rest of us. The paper appeared to be parchment, the address written in calligraphy and having the appearance of being written with a fountain pen. It was bulky and as Hagrid handed it to Carlisle, I noticed it was sealed with wax.

“Thank you.” Carlisle responded as he took the letter.

“You sees, Dumbledore needs you to come to Hogwarts righ’ away. There’s an issue a brewing with Harry Potter – nots that there ain’t always something with Harry. That boy is cursed with bad luck.” I smiled as I recalled someone else with that particular ailment.

Carlisle smiled as this Hagrid recounted what was supposed to be in a private letter.

“I guess I shouldn’t ‘ve said that – well, it’s all in the letter…”

Carlisle opened the letter then, scanning it over at once, then reading to the rest of us.

My old friend Carlisle,

Very dark times are upon us, or I would not have risked sending you this letter. A very dark Wizard, Lord Voldemort, is gathering strength. He is using all his power to reappear as he once was and take control in the Wizarding world. This would have far reaching implications in the muggle world, as I am sure you can understand, affecting all creatures, magical and otherwise.

We have a young boy who is the key to our freedom, Harry Potter. His life is at great risk and I need assistance in protecting him. I have received a prophesy that Harry will be entered into the Tri-Wizard Tournament, though he is under aged and unprepared for such a battle. I fear this is the work of this wizard in an attempt on young Potter’s life.

There are few people I trust with such a task, and those I do trust, are already known to Lord Voldemort. I need someone who would be unknown to come to Hogwarts to help protect young Harry. I hope you will accept my invitation to teach at Hogwarts over the coming year. We have an opening in Herbology that I think you could fill given your extensive knowledge. I assume your family would also accompany you. We may have need for the services of your son, Edward.

There is much to discuss, and time is short. I ask you to consider this request with haste.

Your old friend,

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.’


There was a moment of silence then as we took in all that was said, realizing that we were not much more clear about what was happening then before the letter was read. Questions flooded to me all at once, as not only my own but the entire family’s thoughts penetrated my head:

“What, there are Wizards? Why hadn’t I heard of this before?”
“What is with this Harry Potter? Why don’t they just un-enter him from the contest?”
“Can I be in charge of protection? Wizard or not, I’ll bring him down” That one was Emmet.
“When did Carlisle meet this Dumbledore, and why is he asking for our help”
“Does this mean we have to move again? I’m almost done high school.”
“I wonder if I could take him… He is huge, but still, I am stronger… I wonder how strong half-giants are?” Emmet again.

“Well, then, there it is – so shall I tell the headmaster you accep’ his offer?” Hagrid said, hopefully.

We all looked up at him in shock. Was he serious? We were just wrapping our minds around the existence of a half-giant and Wizards… And now he was asking if we were ready to go to Hogwarts, whatever that was, to defend against a dark Wizard?

“Ah, Hagrid… I think my family may have a few questions. Do you have leave to respond to them, or do I need to take them up with Dumbledore directly?” Carlisle started.

“I’ll try me bes’ to answer what I can. I’m only the groundskeeper.” Hagrid responded, looking slightly disappointed that Carlisle didn’t answer in the affirmative immediately.

“All right. Thank you. Hogwarts – I am assuming that is Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?”

“Yes, that is right.” He responded as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.

“And Albus Dumbledore is now the headmaster of this institution?”

“Yes.” He began to eye Carlisle as though he questioned his intelligence.

Carlisle turned to us then… “I’m afraid I may need to fill in some of the gaps, here. Albus Dumbledore is a Wizard I came across once in my visits to England. Wizards are not immortal as we are, but do live much longer lives then normal humans, or muggles as they call them. I met him not long before I settled in Chicago, where I met you, Edward, he looked down at me. He was young then, almost thirty, but was already a very talented and well regarded Wizard.

“I did not know much about his world and, in fact, know very little to this day… However, he did tell me about the existence of Wizards and a school whether they developed their magical skills… This is the Hogwarts referred to in the letter.

“Over the years, I have heard word from and about Albus from time to time. That is how I heard about Hagrid. It was really just a story in passing about a half giant who was working with Albus at Hogwarts. I don’t know much more then that. I also recall hearing about some sort of uprising that occurred roughly 13 years ago… It was very dark and there was concern it would have an effect on the entire world, but it died down. I didn’t ever hear why, but I do remember hearing the phrase ‘he, who shall not be named’. I am quite sure, however, I have never heard of the boy you speak of, Harry Potter”

“You’ve never hear’ of Harry?” Hagrid looked incredulously at Carlisle and then the rest of us. Finally accepting that we, indeed, had never heard of this Harry Potter, he launched into an explanation, “Well, Harry Potter is the one who defeated Volde… er, he, who shall not be named in the first place. When he was bu’ a baby, Harry was attacked along with his mum and dad. His parents die’, but when he, who shall not be named, attacked Harry, he survived, and he, who shall not be named, was killed. Or at least that is what everyone though’. He is famous – the most famous Wizard of all time.” He looked back at us all then – as if he imagined we would now recall that we remembered this Harry Potter, but, of course, we didn’t.

“Carlisle,” Esme started, the first of all of us to have actually spoken since the stranger arrived, “Why haven’t you ever mentioned any of this before?”

“The Wizards protect their identity as strongly as we protect ours. They do not, hastily, bring others into their world. It was only because I was involved in an incident that I came in contact with Albus at all. And, it was only because of what I am, that I maintained that knowledge – otherwise the spell they use on muggles would have erased the memory from my mind.” Carlisle explained, “There was never any need to share the knowledge – it was no more then a passing event in my long life… In context, until now, it was insignificant…”

I finally found my voice, “Why does he know about me, then?” I searched through my vampire memories which were as clear as the day they happened, but found nothing. No reason to believe that I had ever met this Albus Dumbledore.

“As I said, I met Albus just before settling in Chicago. We corresponded sparingly after we first met. In one of my letters I told him about my first attempts to create companions – you, Edward, and then Esme. We haven’t corresponded since then, and so I am sure he is unaware of the rest of you.”

“Yes, that’s true. He said I was to find Carlisle, Edward and Esme Cullen. He never mentione’ four more o’ you’s.” Hagrid piped in. “Had a lot of fun findin’ you I did. Not easy to track down… And this land is bloody huge, if you don’t mind me sayin’.”

I saw then, in his mind, that he had to cross the ocean by boat and then travel the country on foot. I guessed he wouldn’t fit on any commercial airlines and I couldn’t imagine a vehicle that would fit him.

“Well, I best be off” He said, suddenly. “What should I tell Dumbledore?” he asked Carlisle.

“Tell him I will consider his offer. I would, very much, like to confer with my family and, I am wondering, if he would consider meeting with me before I finalize my decision.”

“He thought you might say that. Here are airline tickets for the three of you to come to England. Dumbledore would be happ’ to meet with you and discuss the details. I’m not too sure of them all me self. As I said, I’m only the groundskeeper.”

“Do you want anything to eat or do you need a place to rest?” Esme added then. We had some food stocked now that Bella was a regular visitor, but I couldn’t see where we would be able to offer him a place to rest.

“No, I need to be on my way. I res’ when I need to… I’ve a long journey.”

I could only imagine, as he now had to walk back across the country and then travel to England by boat, how long it would take him. I wondered if we would make it there before he did – if we came at all.

“Thank you, Hagrid. Give my best to Albus. I’ll be seeing him soon.” Carlisle shook his hand and Hagrid stooped and squeezed himself back out of the house and started off down the path.

We all stood in the living room watching him go… for once, the shock and amazement did not flood me with thoughts – everyone was truly speechless in voice and mind.

I know - Cedric seemed like such a nice guy... When I read the book I kept thinking - if only Harry had been less nobel. Or if they'd made a mistake and Harry touched it first and Cedric was left behind... it would have worked out fine!

Outtake - Breaking A Few of the Rules... (unedited - completely first draft - sorry for any mistakes)

It was two days since the third task: the maze, the graveyard, my death and return, and I had regain full use of my body. Truthfully I had regain full motor functions at two thirty eight the previous day, less then twenty-four hours after the incident, but the slight burning remained as, I assumed, some lesser used parts of my internal structure continued to heal. The burning had ended at eleven fifty-eight this morning. Not long after Esme decided it was time to check on progress at Venlaw.

“I don’t want you going alone.” Carlisle said protectively.

“She won’t, I’m going with her.” Alice chimed.

“Not without me!” Jasper suddenly appeared at her side.

“Nothing’s going to happen…” She insisted, but the look on his face said this was non-negotiable. He was going. Alice sighed.

Carlisle moved to take Esme’s hand, “It looks like you ladies are stuck with us.” He smiled. Esme knew him well enough that it wasn’t worth arguing.

“Rose, do you want to come too?” Alice called out at a normal tone.

“Emmett and I are going to say good bye to the Thestrals, and Hagrid… and Sirius said Buckbeak might be ready for a ride.” She smiled.

Sorry we are leaving you trapped inside, Esme looked at me sympathetically, but maybe you guys would appreciate the along time?

I nodded subtly… I realized we hadn’t been alone at all the entire year. Even when we shared a room, the house was full of the very sensitive ears of my family. In Forks, we had at least had the nights in her room, while her father slept much to soundly for her good. Not that I tried to hide anything from them, but there was a different sense of freedom to our conversation when I knew no one was listening.

And so, in very short order we were alone. It was an interesting dilemma, being along in Dumbledore’s sitting room – in a castle devoid of the usual distractions, like television, or DVDs… As Bella curled up at my side, I was certain we would find someway to occupy our afternoon.

“Edward?” I heard her soft voice beside me – that voice that made my heart sing. I turned to feast myself on her eyes.

“Yes, love.” I said, hearing the husky tone already present in my voice… The extreme circumstances of my perceived death and then my temporary paralysis had left me in need of re-familiarizing myself with her, as she had with me that first night. I knew this alone time was a gift, but it was also a temptation. It would be difficult to maintain control… I needed to find some relief. I spied the old record player in the corner.

“What shall we do with our afternoon.” She looked at my coyly… Yes a distraction would definitely be in order.

“Well, since the year has past, and our wedding is imminent…” Her face uplifted in expectancy. What did she think I was going to say? It suddenly occurred to me as her arms snaked up around my neck and she pressed herself to me. I almost took her right then.

“Yes.” Her husky tone matched my own.

“I was thinking we needed to practise for our first dance.” I chocked as I released myself from her grip and strode over to the record player. It took a second to recall the operation of such a machine. I recall owning one earlier in my existence. I glanced back noting her pouting lip and smiled – my angry kitten was back. And, for once, we weren’t in the midst of a serious life-threatening situation. Glancing through Dumbledore’s collection I was surprised to find the perfect selection, Clare de Lune… Her angry eyes and her pout lost their potency as she heard the scratchy music of the antique player fill the air. “May I have this dance?” I asked bending politely.

She hesitated for only a moment before rising from the sofa and taking my hand. In my mind she moved with the grace of a cat, though in fact she stumbled slightly as she stepped from the sofa. In an instant, my arms were around her as I pulled her up an onto my feet.

“I should feel silly, dancing like this – like a child.” She admitted, “but I sort of prefer it.”

“I couldn’t agree more.” I smiled as I pulled her closer, feeling her warm soft body heating the cold stone one she chose to bind herself to. I couldn’t imagine why or how she was in my life, but I was beyond caring. I only knew she was mine and would be mine forever. At some point, and I wasn’t sure when, I changed my perfectly trained dancer’s stance for a more modern option with both my arms around her body, in more of a swaying hug then a dance.

I felt the slight pressure on my toes and my shoulders as she reached up for a kiss. I very willingly helped her, pulling her to my level and capturing her lips with my own. Time seemingly stood still when I was kissing Bella. I had to concentrate very hard to moderate my pressure and the fervour with which I captured her lips – a feat that was becoming more and more difficult as she wrapped her legs around my waist for support.

The brief reprieve of walking across the room to put on the record – that moment where I was able to calm the desires that rose within me was all that kept me from acting on the wishes of my body now. We’ll be married in a month, I reasoned… or less – depending on whether Bella held Alice to her promise to have the wedding the day of our return… That sounded nice actually. In less then a week we would be man and wife…

I deepened the kiss, daring to taste her mouth. She was delectable. But she was also out of breath I realized as her heart began to beat at an unhealthy rate. I broke away and kissed along her cheek and down her throat. Instead of tangling her hands in my hair and inhaling the scent of my hair as she usually did, she, instead arched her back, begging me to continue my journey lower. I swallowed back the venom as I considered the journey I might take… the vision of her naked body flashed in my mind. I quickly shoved it aside. That wasn’t going to help me maintain the control I needed…

I heard her soft moan as she broke away my downward pursuit and, instead returned to safer ground – her neck. How ridiculous that I would consider that safer now – that which was almost the source of my destruction. I revelled in her scent, her feel, her taste, as she quickly unbuttoned my shirt. Only part of mind noted her actions, and the larger part welcomed them. I marvelled at how such a flimsy piece of fabric could make such a difference in the amount of heat the now permeated my being. I wished I could feel her flesh against mind… I wondered – could I do that and still maintain control.

My hands at her waist seemed to take the passing thought as permission and began working at the blouse that was tucked annoyingly well into her pants. However, in a few seconds I had it loose, and without ripping I thought proudly, and my hands explored the tantalizing heat of her back. Her skin was like soft satin. Every touch blazed through my fingers, further igniting the heat that already blazed in more core. A corner lifted from the material at her waist and my body flared further as the skin of her stomach touched mine. I knew I was becoming dangerously close to losing control now. I remembered this that fateful night when we developed those silly rules. How ridiculous they seemed now – with her in my arms. She felt so right… It would only take a few seconds and I could feel her full body against mine… just a few buttons…

“Ahem” I heard behind me. In an instant I knew it was Dumbledore… I heard his low chuckle. “Lovely choice of music… I always thought the muggles had much more passionate expression of themselves through art… something some of my wizard contemporaries would never admit to…” he mused, humour in his voice.

Bella’s legs released their hold on my waist, her feet finding their way back to the floor as she sighed. I quickly tucked the back of her blouse into the waist of her slacks. It was a less then perfect job, but it would do to maintain her dignity. As she stepped away, I quickly refastened the buttons of my shirt, though I was sure we weren’t fooling Dumbledore in the slightest.

“Hi Professor,” Bella said as the flush I loved captured her cheeks.

“Ah, Bella… so glad the two of you are here.” He smiled warmly, with a hint of humour in his eyes. “We hadn’t much chance to talk, but when I heard the family was going to Venlaw, I wondered if you had decided you’d had enough of being cooped up in my residence… apparently I was mistaken.”

“It’s nice to just be away from it all.” I said, forcing calmness in my voice.

“Yes, well, I’m afraid you will have more of that. It isn’t safe for us to take any chances of your being seen by student, faculty or one of the other possibilities… so I’m afraid, I’ll have to ask you to remain here until after the end of year feast.”

“Of course, Dumbledore. I assumed as much.” I agreed.

“Thank you for the use of your home.” Bella added kindly.

“Well I see you’ve found something to occupy your time… the photograph hasn’t had much use in recent history.” He smiled at the unintended double entrée. “I realize we are not equipped with the traditional muggle means of entertainment – but I also have a viewer where you can watch old Quidditch world up matches replayed – he pointed toward a miniature version of a Quidditch pitch, with several sets of miniature players. He chuckled, “Sometimes they even come out with the same results as the original match…” he walked through the sitting room, “Of course you are welcome to any of the books. I’ve taken care to remove anything that might be dangerous… and then, well, you can always visit with each other.” He smiled a little more broadly, his eyes twinkling in a little more humour at that. “I’ve advised Bella’s professors and Gryffindor house that she is simply overcome with grief… Hermione volunteered to check on you from time to time, of course…”

Bella smiled beside me. That was a friendship she would be sad to leave.

“And well, that is that… you can return to… whatever you were planning to do this afternoon.” He chuckled again and left the sitting room.
