Chapter 4: Past and Present

Blaise was skipping excitedly at Harry's side. Normally, he was very restrained and mature for his age, but he was very excited to see how his Lord and friend would prank the school and the whole world. It would also be quite difficult to outsmart the Sorting Hat, and that twice.

Once for Harry, and once for him. He hoped that Harry would tell him how to do that before they were sitting on the stool in front of the whole school and there was no way back.

"Calm down. I do think you are aiding our disguise, but I think you're overdoing it a bit. If you don't take care, you might be taken for a Hufflepuff.
You don't have to worry about the Sorting Ceremony. I'll tell Gordon to sort you into Gryffindor, as I, as one of the founders of Hogwarts, have the right to decide where some children fit better."

Blaise stared at Harry, who only smirked. He knew that this small detail would hit his friend unprepaired. This information, which Blaise now shared, could only be to their advantage.

Not only the portraits in Hogwarts wouldn't tell anyone about them, no matter what they spoke about, or where they were, but Hogwarts would actively help Blaise and him.

Of course, only when Hogwarts recognized him, but he was positive she would. If not, he would have to delay some of his plans, but there was a lot he could do without the help of his great daughter.

Why Salazar viewed her as his daughter? Because he, same as with his own children, was with her from her birth on. When the first magic was introduced to her and she gradually began to have her own soul and mind.

When she first moved her stairs, because Salazar was angry with Godric, because he had insulted him again, to let them stay apart. Every moment of her time he was there, the same as she was there for every important moment.
His marriage and his children's births happened here, in the Great Hall. The same with their burials, his children's and Richard's. When he found out who was behind the murders and who captured his son, Hogwarts was there to console him.

Also the following argument between Godric and him, as well as his suicide in the Chamber of Secrets Hogwarts had lived through with him, as did Kisha, his female basilisk, whom he had hidden down there.

He hoped Kisha was still alive. As Basilisks could live for over five thousand years she probably was, but without food even she could not survive.

All the guessing however did not give answers, and before Salazar could get those, he would have to arrive first. So he took Blaise's hand and greeted Hagrid, who was calling all eleven-year-olds to him.

Draco Malfoy did not understand. Blaise Zabini was from a neutral dark family, but he did not like Draco. When he had seen him, he just turned up his nose at him and walked away.

Draco was a Malfoy and he'd never seen a boy that rude who came from a good family.

When they were small, Blaise had played together with Gregory Goyle, Vincent Crabbe, Pansy Parkinson, Theodore Nott and him, before he refused all contact this summer.

After even his mother had not gotten an answer from the Zabinis, Draco thought it might have been some kind of misunderstanding. Maybe he took it for face value when Draco had said that the Dark Lord would come back and would never let him join.

He meant it as a joke, because he knew that the Zabinis weren't Death Eaters. But maybe Blaise wanted to join the Dark Lord like his other friends and was now sad he couldn't.

But when Draco wanted to explain everything on the ride on the Hogwarts Express, Blaise only had a disgusted glance for him. The worst was, for him, that later, he had seen him talking with the Golden Boy, Harry Potter.

As if they'd been friends for ages and were telling each other what kind of adventures they could get into at Hogwarts.

Draco would never say it aloud, but he was jealous. Jealous that the Golden Boy had taken his Best Friend from him in hours. If there was no Potter, Blaise would still be his friend, that he knew. Even his father talked more often about Potter than Draco thought was good.

Everytime Draco tried to gain his father's attention during such a conversation, his mother took him aside. His mother, Narcissa Malfoy, was despite the cold mask she wore in public, a loving mother who tried everything to let her son feel enough love and warmth.

Not that his father was not showering Draco with love and hugs, but recently he had been preoccupied with talking to old friends and making guesses on what happened to Potter instead of flying on his broomstick and playing Quidditch with Draco, like he usually did.

Blaise, on the other hand, was totally surprised by the information that his Lord had been one of the founders of Hogwarts. Who might he have been to still have that amount of power over Hogwarts in a new incanation?

Blaise guessed Salazar Slytherin. It might have been cliché that Salazar was a Dark Lord, but he thought that a Gryffindor would act differently and most probably would never have become a Dark Lord.

"Your thought process is very good, but you are not correct with your assumption that a Gryffindor would have never become a Dark Lord. Not only that we can disprove this theory, but I am a descendent of Gryffindor.
Also, you would think that Draco could become a Dark Lord if it weren't for his follower qualities, and that he is too arrogant to think about his future.

How I know about your connection to Draco Malfoy? Tell me, have you ever heard of Occlumency and Legilimency?" Blaise shook his head. He had never heard of something like that. "Ligilimency is similar to mind reading, but I can also do it with your memories and feelings.
Everything you have experienced I can find in your head, except when you have hidden them behind Occlumency barriers. As you have never heard of it you can correctly assume that only few people have heard of these techniques or can use them. Only people extraordinarily talented with mind magics take the time to learn it.

But also some others do to gain advantages in conversations or to discover secret informations.
The whole journey on the Hogwarts Express I have looked at your thoughts and memories. As I am a Master Mind Magician you do not have to get angry or fear I manipulated your memories.
I only got an overview of your life, your dreams and wishes as well as the spells and techniques you already know. Now I can estimate better what you need to learn and how fast you learn. For example, I will now begin to teach you Occlumency and also the privacy-sphere-spells that surrounds us at the moment so that no one can overhear us talking. I am assuming that you will need about three weeks to learn Occlymency and will be able to keep my secrets without me having to bind them with secrecy spells. Until then I have left some of myself in your thoughts so that every information about Hogwarts or me that you gain through me is protected.

Now use your happy, boisterous Gryffindor mask and act as if I just told you a joke. We have reached the boats and therefore the end of our conversation.

As if on commando, Blaise began to laugh and laid an arm over Harry's shoulders.

"Oh Harry, the things you tell me. One could really get the impression you know what you say. How can you stay that cool? I'm only just keeping myself from breaking down!

Please stop telling me such things. Or I won't be able to stop myself. That was really the most unbelievable thing I've ever heard. But with the Boy-Who-Lived I shouldn't be surprised, right?"

Harry nodded and tried everything to not start laughing himself. How Blaise managed to keep his mask up even with what he told him was a mystery to him. But he was relieved that Blaise was not taking his intrusion into his privacy amiss.

"Take the boats, only four into each! Everyone seated? Good, let's go to Hogwarts!"

Blaise and Harry sat next to each other in one boat. Opposite was one of the carroty heads and the excessively know-it-all muggleborn who was the whole time lecturing the boy next to her, Ronald Weasley, about the importance of learning and the right treatment of books.

Blaise rolled his eyes and mouthed 'Ravenclaw' to Harry, who nodded to that judgement of his friend and started a conversation with the redhead.

Ronald was full of awe when he got to know who was sitting opposite him and wanted to see Harry's scar while he asked questions that were not only inappropriate and insulting but also hurtful and tactless.

Questions like 'Did you really see your mother die?' and 'How did it feel like to kill You-Know-Who?' were starting to make Harry livid with rage.

Trying to maintain his Gryffindor mask Salazar answered his questions as good as he could, even though most of his answers consisted of 'I don't know!'.

Hermione Granger, muggleborn and walking book extraordinaire on the other hand began to quote her knowledge about Harry from books and that she would be very disappointed if Harry really was only a small boy and not a big hero like the books said.

Then she got the notion that books are never wrong and that Harry was hiding his true brilliance and knowledge behind a façade of a small boy.

Harry would never admit that she was partially right, but that he was the hero of the wizarding world and British nation he would deny. He did not think, however, that if he tried to explain everything to her, that he was a Dark Lord on his way to restore the Balance, that she would believe him and not grass on him to a teacher.

Blaise was amused with hearing the excuses Harry had to make. Salazar, on the other hand, was not amused at all. If he had foreseen that he would encounter such brainless children in Gryffindor, and he was positive that Weasley would be one, he would have overthought his decision to be sorted into the house of his rival and ancestor.

But before he could determine the repercussions it would have on his plans if he was sorted into Slytherin, a feeling engulfed him that warmed him to his bones. With only a smile he showed how much the acceptance and pleasure to see him again touched him. As soon as he got near her wards, his daughter had recognized him and greated him back home.

Immediately Hogwarts let him feel how much she'd missed him and how much his death had hurt her. Also, she let him feel her confusion about Godric's reincarnation and also her happiness to see him again.

That was bitter for Salazar, because even though he could understand her feelings, once he had thought alike and loved him over everything, but after everything that happened, he could no longer share those feelings. Everything he now felt for Godric, not Draco as he did not know anything about his former life, was hate, disgust and surprise how someone could be that blind.

Hogwarts, with a small mental poke, let him come back to the present and let him know that she wanted to show something to him. That it had to wait she knew, because the funny creatures first had to find their sleeping places through Gordon, but she would remind him someday soon, when he did not have to be in the rooms with the grown-up creatures.

Salazar on the other hand told her that he would remember and tell her when it would be the best time to talk to her, as it was not know. The other occupants of the boat were already looking at him strangely.

With a warm feeling of joy and shelteredness Hogwarts said goodbye to her father. She was looking foreward to showing what had happened after his death and what happened to her other father to make him hate and detest his best friend and brother in everything but blood.

But until then she was relieved and content that her fathers were back.
