Southampton Harbor, July 29, 1999.
A passenger ship from Stockholm docked at the port, and countless travelers swarmed down from the passenger ship.
A weird man wearing a yellow-black cloak can easily attract the attention of other pedestrians… He holds a few tarot cards in his hand and a crystal ball hanging from his waist, looking mysterious.
Zacharys Smith is the name of this strange man.
It stands to reason that he, who graduated from Hogwarts two months ago, should be trained in prophecy at Durmstrang School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
But he appeared in London, and there is only one fundamental reason-
That is to attend a grand wedding!
Zacharias didn’t care about the gazes of others. He looked at a note in his hand and muttered to himself:
“Hampshire, Southampton, Eastleigh Road, No. 86… should be here!”
Zacharias, with his head down, accidentally knocked down with another person.
“Ouch!” Zacharias couldn’t help covering his forehead.
The person he hit seemed more painful, because the crystal ball hanging from Zacharias’s waist seemed to hit his lower body…
“It’s okay, sir…” Zacharias quickly stretched out a hand and asked with some concern.
Suddenly, his movements were frozen in midair, and the whole person was stunned.
“You are… you are… Professor Lockhart?” he cried out in surprise.
“Hush!” The man on the ground, a carp struck up, stood up, and made a “hush” gesture to Zacharias.
“It’s been a long time since I saw you, Professor Lockhart!” Zacharias said excitedly, “Are you here for the wedding too?”
“Of course…” Guidro Loha nodded, and at the same time whispered, “Don’t say anything, I’m a wanted criminal now…”
“Jon would invite you?” Zacharias seemed curious.
“My relationship with their family is very harmonious!” Lockhart said very proudly.
Then he swaggered into No. 86 on Eastleigh Road.
Mr. Zacharys Smith looked at Lockhart’s back while thinking about…
“I have to think about it, what is the amount of the reward for Guidro Lockhart?” he said to himself.
But Zacharias finally gave up the idea, after all, today is the wedding of his best friend Jon, so don’t cause him trouble.
What’s more, Guidro Lockhart should be the guest invited by Jon.
In the courtyard of No. 86 Eastleigh Road, a huge white tent has been erected.
In the tent, many musicians in white robes had arrived at the wedding site an hour ago, holding their various golden musical instruments in their hands.
Zacharias saw the magical light blue smoke floating on the scene, like a fairyland.
Behind him, you can see from the entrance of the tent, rows of exquisite golden seats are neatly arranged on both sides of the long purple carpet.
Moreover, the pillars of the tent are also decorated with colorful flowers.
A large bunch of golden balloons decorated the innermost side of the tent, above the place where the newlyweds were sworn into marriage.
Outside the venue, bees and butterflies in twos and threes are leisurely circling and playing in the lawn and bushes… everything seems extremely harmonious and peaceful.
Zacharias saw many acquaintances, such as the graduates of Hogwarts.
Every college has them, whether it’s Hufflepuff, Slytherin, or Gryffindor and Ravenclaw… Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley are standing together hand in hand, and Wei Several boys from the Sly family were beside him, Malfoy and Parkinson, Madeleine and Selwyn… all familiar faces.
Zacharias also saw Hermione Granger, her face was very bad, and her dress was not decent at all, and even a little messy… It seems that she is rumored to be working on the liberation of house elves , Has been eating and living with the house elves, maybe it is true…
“Hannah!” Finally, Zacharias saw Hufflepuff’s friends.
Hannah Abbot waved at him, and Neville Longbottom followed her behind her.
Ernie McMillan is still such a crap; and Cedric Diggory, who is still handsome, and Ravenclaw’s Cho Chang is standing with him.
Apart from the graduates of Hogwarts, there are still many faces of middle-aged and elderly wizards in the tent.
For example, the members of the Order of the Phoenix, they almost all arrived; they gathered around Aristo Moody and Kingsley Shaker.
There are also many high-level personnel of the Ministry of Magic, including Minister Amelia Burns and Director Rufus Scrimgeour.
And the teachers at Hogwarts, this need not be said.
In addition, there are the families of the newlyweds… Eric and Julie Hart, Mrs. Diana Greengrass, and the bride’s sister Daphne Greengrass…
In the most prominent position in the tent, there were two weird old men sitting.
I don’t know why, except for the bald head… Zacharias always feels that another white-haired old man looks familiar…
It’s just that the two sides are so far apart that they can’t be seen clearly.
Professor Minerva McGonagall, the vice president of Hogwarts, approached the white-haired old man, and she couldn’t believe her gaze.
“You…you…you are…” Professor McGonagall said tremblingly.
“Long time no see, Minerva…” Albus Dumbledore said with a smile.
“Merlin’s beard… you still…”
“Yes, I’m sorry I never told you, because I want to completely give up my past…” Albus Dumbledore said gently, “I was not dead at the time, and Jon saved him at the last moment. Under me…”
“…I didn’t intend to appear in front of you again… It’s a pity that Jon insisted on inviting me to his wedding and invited me and my friends to be his witnesses!”
Dumbledore seemed to think of something: “By the way, Minerva… I should introduce you to this. This is Gellert…”
The bald old man bowed gently to Professor McGonagall rather elegantly.
“Guy…Gellert…” Professor Minerva McGonagall was almost taken aback.
Her hands were shaking slightly.
Because she recognized this old man who seemed harmless to humans and animals… His true identity was the black demon who had never known how many lives he had in his hands.
The wedding officially began, and Zacharias stopped chatting with his friends.
“Ladies and gentlemen,” a very magnetic voice rang, the old man who Zacharias felt a little familiar just now, “all please stand up.”
Everyone present, whether it was a wizard or a Muggle, stood up.
The white-haired old man walked in front of Jon and Astoria: “Today we gather together to witness the god-given marriage between the two newcomers…”
“The bride is so beautiful!” Hannah whispered.
“Okay, Jon Eric Hart, please join hands with Astoria Alice Greengrass…” the gray-haired old man continued ~www.snovelfree.com~ in the front row, ha The handkerchiefs of Mrs. Te and Mrs. Greengrass were soaked in tears of happiness.
Daphne Greengrass, the bride’s sister, was also crying.
Sniffing like a trumpet also rang in the back row. Needless to say, the future Dean of Gryffindor College, Professor Hagrid, has taken out the iconic tablecloth-sized handkerchief and started sobbing.
Many girls have also become tearful!
“…Now, I declare that you are officially married!” The white-haired old man finally announced.
On the side, the bare-headed old man waved his magic wand over Jon and Astoria’s heads, and fantastic golden and silver stars rose and hovered around them.
As a round of applause rang, the previous golden balloons exploded, turning into happy birds and golden wall clocks floating in the air, and the sound of beautiful music immediately sounded.
The applause is like the Thunder version, endless.
The gray-haired old man and the bare-headed old man waved their magic wands at the same time.
A strange scene happened, the white tent immediately disappeared, and the seats they had just sat on also flew up.
They flew into the sky and turned into gorgeous golden vaults, which was breathtaking.
Afterwards, a bit of golden light spread out from the center of the original tent, and the situation began to change suddenly under their feet——
Finally it becomes a huge dance floor!
House elves popped up everywhere, carrying pumpkin juice, butter beer and Coca-Cola on a silver plate…
The bride and groom also walked on the dance floor arm in arm.
But they were not in a hurry to lead the dance, but hugged each other tightly—
“Jon, I love you!” Astoria said softly.
“Me too!” Jon nodded.
