Crookshanks just wants to find some place to sleep and rest his weary bones, but Ron and Hermione won't let him.
Written for Staff Challenge 5 at HPFF, where you had to base your fic on someone else's. I chose Georgia_Weasley's story 'Time to Go,' which can also be found here on Gluttony.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
I stared at where the wedding photo used to be, trying not to think of this as the last time I would sleep in this bed. The last time I would see this room. The last time I would sleep next to my wife. No, it wouldn't be the last time, because I would come back. That was the whole point of leaving, wasn't it?
"I'll find you somewhere
I'll keep on trying until my dying day
I just need to know whatever has happened
The truth will free my soul" - Within Temptation : Somewhere (Songwriters: Westerholt, Robert; Den Adelt, Sharon)
After the fall of Voldemort, the Dursleys were ready to return to their normal lives and to put that whole magical nonsense behind them. However, when a package arrives for Harry at their home, Dudley can't help but be curious about it more than ever since his experiences at the Ministry of Magic. But is even Dudley prepared for the can of worms that he has opened? Will he be able to handle the rather large consequences of his curiosity or will the fur start flying?
The prologue and first two chapters of this story intertwine with the last two chapters and epilogue, (covering, roughly, the last two weeks of term), of my sixth year story ‘What Goes Around…Comes Around…Lost And Found…Love’. If you haven’t read it, you’d better go through that one, or none of this story will make any sense.
