Harry woke up on the next morning and opened his eyes. Ron
was shaking him vigourously.
"Get up. Kingsley is waiting for you in the gardens. He
wants a word with you."
"Kingsley?" Harry said, perplexed.
"Yeah. He's the new Minister of Magic, isn't he? Get up
now!" Ron said.
Harry got up and dressed in full speed; then he descended
down the stairs and saw Mrs. Weasley beaming at him. She ruffled his hair
lovingly and George winked at him. Harry looked at Ron questioningly. He
shrugged and came into the gardens with him. Hermione followed them.
As soon as Harry entered the gardens, he saw Ginny playing
with Crookshanks near the hedges. She didn't look at him. He turned and saw
"Hello, Harry! How are you?" he said in his deep voice.
"Hello, 'm fine." He replied.
"I came here to inform you that the Ministry for Magic has decided to honour the people who fought in the battle in Hogwarts against… Lord Voldemort." Kingsley said and took out a piece of parchment from his robes and read aloud. "Mr. Harry Potter, Ms. Hermione Granger and Mr. Ron Weasley will receive Order of Merlin, First Class."
Hermione let out an audible gasp.
"Wow! That's great! Thank you very much!" said Harry. He
hadn't expected such an honour, and judging by the look on Ron's face, nor had
"And-" Kingsley continued, "- following people will receive
Order of Merlin, Third Class - " He read out the names of people who fought in
the battle. "So, do you think the judgment is fair? Do you have any suggestions
Harry was on the verge of saying, "No." but then he suddenly
He had only told Ron and Hermione about it. Of course he had
told Voldemort before their final duel, but everyone who heard him had thought
it was a lie. He had to tell Kingsley now.
"Actually, I have. Minister, you might think I'm mistaken
but trust me. Er… Dumbledore was not wrong in trusting Snape. Snape was indeed
a spy for us, not a death eater." He said slowly.
Kingsley frowned disbelievingly. Ginny took a step closer to
"We have proof, Minister," Hermione said promptly. "Professor Snape gave Harry some of his memories just before he… he died. We still have them in the Headmaster's study at Hogwarts."
Ginny was looking at them intently, though she avoided his
gaze. Kingsley opened his mouth to ask something and, to Harry's astonishment,
it was Ron who answered before he could ask.
"Of course, you might think why he killed Dumbledore then." Ron said knowingly.
"But Dumbledore had already planned his death with Snape. He
had actually ordered Snape to kill him because he was already seriously
weakened by a curse on a Horcrux while trying to destroy it. He knew he
wouldn't live over a year."
Ron paused. Kingsley was looking bewildered.
"Snape was on Voldemort's side before… before he
eavesdropped on the prophecy about Harry and Voldemort and informed Voldemort
about it. But then Voldemort started hunting down Harry and… and he was…" Ron
broke and glanced at Harry.
Harry continued the story and explained everything he had
seen in the pensieve that night. "He loved my mother immensely and so, he
turned on our side, you know… to protect me. You know, we used Polijuice Potion
to shift me safely to The Burrow… he had suggested the plan to Mundungus
Fletcher. Imperiused him."
Kingsley was shocked. Ginny was staring at Harry. Ron
finished the story for Harry.
"So, I think… we think that Snape deserves Order of Merlin,
First Class as well." He said and glanced at Harry and Hermione.
Harry nodded. Hermione was staring at Ron, half-surprised,
half-pleased and continued to stare until Kingsley was gone, promising to check
out the memories of Snape. Then she walked to Ron, whose ears were red.
She reached him and mumbled something no one could hear. The next second, Ron seized her and kissed her at once. She kissed him back.
i know it's a short part but it had to be... hope u understand!
