Chapter Six- Remembering, Forgetting and Getting Busted


I woke again, sitting upright and cracking my head- I could feel a bruise throbbing painfully. “Jamie?” My voice sounded child-like to me so I bit my lip.

I’m here, love... What did you see this time?” He asked, his voice filled with nothing but curiosity. I wrapped my arms round his neck, burying my face in his shoulder length hair.

I saw more of what happened to us” I mumbled as his arms appeared around my waist. “I saw Luna’s father look at us from over the top of a cabinet and then we were falling...

Yes, Hermione blasted a hole in the floor so we could get out... Ron and I were under the cloak, remember? Hermione Apparated us to that field” He said in a comforting voice.

Why can’t I remember what happened?” I was honestly worried about myself- I’d woken up inside the tent with no memory of how I had got there and no idea who Jamie was until he touched my face, his eyes full of worry.

You got hit in the head with that bust of Rowena Ravenclaw when that Enrumpment Horn blew the house apart and then you fell and hit your head once we were back here...” He said, smiling at me as I looked up at him.

Oh...” Was all I manage. He chuckled once before I heard Harry’s voice through the darkness. It sounded like he was arguing.

Don’t worry, love” Jamie said quietly, sweeping mahogany curls out of my face. “He’s arguing with Hermione again

Obsession?” I recognised Hermione’s fierce voice and climbed out of the bed, my hand wrapped in Jamie’s. “We’re not the ones with an obsession, Harry! We’re the ones doing what Dumbledore wanted us to do!” Ron was sitting behind Hermione, who was glaring at Harry.

The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death” Harry said calmly, his anger gone as he quoted his parents tombstone. Hermione raised an eyebrow.

I thought it was You- Know- Who we were supposed to be fighting?” Hermione retorted and I watched as harry shrugged and walked away, towards the mouth of the tent. “What is he thinking? Focusing on the Hallows as if they’re real...” I let Hermione’s angry whispers fade into background noise as I looked at the back of Harry’s head.

Alicia...” Harry said in a bored voice, half an hour later, turning to look at me. I grinned innocently and he gave me a small returning smile. I skipped towards him and dropped to the floor, handing him a plate of food.

I know how you’re feeling, Harry- I’ve been there” I whispered and he froze, the piece of sausage falling off his fork. “Your visions, I mean

I thought my visions were frowned upon?” He said, returning to his dinner. I bit my lip and glanced over my shoulder. Jamie was flicking through one of the books we’d brought with us, Hermione had her nose in The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore again while Ron was muttering to the radio in the corner again.

Forget what I’ve said in the past, Harry. Your visions are just as important as mine- we know how he feels, where he is and what he’s doing... It’s that old Muggle saying all over again, isn’t it? Keep your friends close but your enemies closer” I said quietly, sounding older than I actually was. “Wow, I sound like my mum...” He cracked a smile at me, which faded slowly.

But-

They’re not as clear as before? That’s happened to me as well, Harry” I said, putting my hand on his arm. “He probably knows what he wants but doesn’t know how to get it” I grinned evilly at him. “Like when you was constantly thinking about Ginny last year... I kept getting faint flickers of the two of you- not to mention certain dreams I never wish to have again, thank you very much” I added and he grinned impishly.

Sorry...” He muttered, his cheeks burning. I laughed and Jamie looked over at us.

I’ve got it! I’ve got it! The password was Albus! Get in here, you two!” Ron called, making us all jump. I heard the books hit the carpet before two pairs of feet walked across the small room.

We listened as our friends voices issued out of the tiny wooden wireless- Lee, Remus, Kingsley and Fred. I bit my lip, listening carefully. I remained silent as they listed the dead and then laughed as they mentioned Hagrid’s Support Harry Potter party. Then it turned to the subject I was interested in, making me lean forwards in concentration.

As our listeners know, unless they’ve taken refuge at the bottom of a garden pond or somewhere similar, You- Know- Who’s strategy of remaining in the shadows is creating a nice little climate of panic. Mind you, if all the alleged sightings are genuine, we must have a good nineteen You- Know- Who’s running around the place” Fred’s voice announced and I nodded my head once. Even here, on this windy little hill, I could feel the panic gripping at my heels.

Which suits him of course” Kingsley said and I pursed my lips slightly. “The air of mystery is creating more terror than actually showing himself

Agreed. So, people, let’s try to calm down a bit. Things are bad enough without inventing stuff as well. For instance, this new idea that You- Know- Who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That’s a Basalisk, listeners. One simple test- check whether the thing glaring at you has got legs- ” I started laughing, missing the rest of the report. I was still laughing as the lights went out from behind the screen and the radio fell silent. Jamie grinned as he swept scarlet curls over my shoulders. I kissed him quickly before Harry’s voice busted my happy little bubble.

But did you hear what Fred said? He’s abroad! He’s still looking for the wand, I knew it!

Harry- ” Hermione and I said at the same time. Her voice drowned out mine, loud with denial and disbelief.

Come on, Hermione” He said, cutting her off, not hearing my silent whisper of warning. “Why are you so determined not to admit it? Vol—

NO!” I shrieked, at the same time Ron shouted “HARRY! IT’S TABBOOED!

—demort’s after the Elder Wand!” He continued as I froze, fear locking my muscles into place while horror made my hair turn grey as it fell into my eyes, which closed slowly. I heard the victorious thoughts over the sound of our protective spells vanishing, the approaching footsteps and the spinning Sneakoscope. I heard Ron fumble for the Deluminator and opened my eyes, searching the sudden darkness for Jamie’s face. Fear crackled down my spine as a familiar voice broke the silence.

Come out of there with your hands up! We know you’re in there! You’ve got half a dozen wands pointing at you and we don’t care who we curse!

I bet you don’t!” I shouted through the darkness and I heard muttering from outside.


This is right now

I wondered why you skipped that part
Now, shall I just repeat what I said last time?

Though I felt bad for Harry and what the visions did to him, I always thought they were helpful... They let them know where Voldemort was, which is always a good thing.

And now the real fun begins. I'm curious to see how Alicia and Jamie will be adapted into Malfoy Manor.
Fantastic post, Abi! Please PAMS!

Chapter Seven – Found Out


Get. Off. Her!” Jamie and Ron shouted as we were wrestled out of the tent. I saw one of the Snatchers hit Ron in the stomach from the corner of my eye.

NO!” Hermione screamed as I started to fight back.

LEAVE HIM ALONE!” I shrieked as he turned towards Jamie. I caught the Snatcher holding me in the groin and jumped between him and Jamie. I was slapped across the face, nails cutting into my cheek. I hit the floor, hissing in pain, as Jamie was punched in the stomach and hit on the back of the neck, falling forwards too. Before I could do more than push myself up off the floor, I felt long nails dig into the top of my arm.

Delicious girl... What a treat... I do like the softness of the skin...” I stiffened, my back ram rod straight. The man who had me was Fenrir Greyback. My hair was suddenly short and black as fury trickled through my veins. “Hmm, a Metamorphagus... Lovely... Let’s hope your pretty friend here isn’t on my list” Fenrir purred in my ear, his eyes on Hermione. “Now let’s see who we’ve got” I was dragged towards Hermione, who shook with fear. “What’s your name, girly?

Penelope Clearwater” Hermione squeaked, terrified and convincing.

Blood Status?” Greyback barked and I narrowed my eyes.

Half- Blood” She squeaked and I was able to glimpse at her face before I was dragged towards Harry.

I’ll need Butterbeer to wash this one down... What happened to you, ugly?” Greyback asked and Harry remained silent, unsure on what to say. “I said, what happened to you?” The werewolf asked again, kicking him in the chest- he laughed as I shook with fury.

Stung- been stung” Harry muttered, barely able to see in front of him.

Looks like it... What’s your name?” Another Snatcher asked while the rest laughed. Greyback was looking over each of us careful, his thoughts making my skin crawl.

Dudley” Harry said, no hesitation at all. I felt the smile spread across my face at the name.

And your first name?” Fenrir ordered and Harry hesitated slightly, making the werewolf tighten his grip on my arm. The feel of the warm blood trickling down my arm made me nervous.

I- Vernon” Harry said after a second and Greyback backed away from him.

Check the list, Scabior” A blonde man with a sheet of parchment rolled into a scroll nodded and I was dragged towards Jamie, who was still on the floor. “Name?” I hissed as the man’s eyes glided over Jamie slowly.

Williams” Jamie spat, his eyes dancing with fire as they darted to my livid face, the marks on my cheek, the hand round my arm, the mans face and back again. “Emmett Williams

Blood Status” Greyback ordered and my hissing grew into snarls. Jamie threw me a warning look as he pushed himself up onto his knees- Fenrir would recognise my snarling.

Half- Blood” I was dragged along once more as Jamie was thrown to the floor again.

And what about you. Ginger?

Stan Shunpike” Ron said immediately and I glared at him. We were obviously in danger, having Fenrir this close to finding out who we really were, so using Stan’s name could be disastrous.

Try again, Ginger” Greyback sneered, hitting Ron in the face.

I’b Bardy” Ron said, spitting a mouthful of blood. “Bardy Weadley

A Weasley? So you’re related to Blood Traitors even if you’re not a Mudblood” I saw the fury flash across Jamie’s face as I hissed through my teeth in anger and pain. “And your name, feisty?” Greyback said, shaking my arm.

I spat at him. I saw Jamie smile at me quickly before it vanished quickly- Fenrir raised his free hand and slapped me again, cutting my other cheek. “What’s your name?

Sorry, I don’t think you’re my type” I retorted and he released my arm, throwing me to the floor. I knew that I was going to pay for being defiant, but I couldn’t help myself- this man helped Severus Snape kill Dumbledore, this man scarred Bill’s face, this man made Remus a werewolf...

What’s. Your. Name” Greyback rasped, each word punctuated by a blow.

Just answer him!’ I obeyed Jamie’s thought automatically.

Jayme” I lied, spitting blood and wiping my mouth. “Jayme Alicia Brand... Pureblood

What House you in?” The werewolf ordered and I raised my chin slightly.

Does it matter?” I answered back and the next thing I knew, I was on my back, sprawled across the dirt.

What House?

Slytherin, only one in the entire family and proud of it” I hissed and Greyback walked away.

Bind them up with the other prisoners” He ordered and I felt hands close round my arms, making me hiss in pain as they caught the marks from Greyback’s nails. They released me and I thought about running for half a second before a hand became wrapped in my hair. I gasped as I saw where we were being taken. A Goblin and a boy were tied together under a nearby tree. The boy- who was far too familiar- opened his mouth to say something but I glared at him. I was bound to the boys right side while Jamie was tied to my left.

Anyone still got a wand?” Harry asked in a whisper as the Snatchers walked away.

No- they ransacked the tent and took the damn sword too, listen” I said as they discussed it.

Alicia, we- ” Jamie started quietly but someone spoke over him.

Harry? Alicia?” The boy whispered, recognising Hermione and Ron but not Harry or me.

Dean?” Harry replied, his voice full of shock.

It is you! If they find out who they’ve got!” Dean’s sentence was cut short by my terrified gasp.

What is it?” Jamie said immediately and I ignored him.

No... Oh no! The paper! I can’t raise my hand to change it!” I said, fighting against the ropes.

’Ang on a minute, Greyback! Look at this, in the Prophet!” Scabior emerged from the tent and handed the newspaper to the werewolf. I felt the others round me stiffen.

What? What, Alicia?” Dean breathed silently, not knowing what was going on. My hair fell into my eyes, pure white. I focused on changing it but I could only manage a light blue curl that was still in my vision.

Hermione Granger and Alicia Starlight, the Mudbloods known to be travelling with Harry Potter...” At Greyback’s words, I felt Harry’s scar sear in pain. “You know what, this picture looks a hell of a lot like you, girly” He said, walking over and showing Hermione her own photo.

It isn’t! It isn’t me!” Hermione squeaked, terror shaking her voice. She spoke so quickly that it gave us away. The small clearing we’d camped in fell oddly silent.

Alicia Daniels, a Mudblood Metamorphagus known to be with Potter...” Greyback said, his eyes scanning the page. “I’ve met her before...” His boots creaked as he crouched in front of me. “Drop the disguise, Daniels” Greyback whispered and I spat at him, my hair turning scarlet. He laughed again as he stood up and I hissed through my teeth, fighting the ropes again. “Known to be travelling with Harry Potter...” I heard it click together in his head and stopped fighting, snarling under my breath at him.

Calm down, Alicia” Dean murmured quietly as Greyback moved towards Harry.

This changes things...” He muttered to himself as he glanced at the paper again. “What’s that on your head, Vernon?” I watched as Fenrir raised a finger to touch Harry’s painful scar.

DON’T TOUCH IT!” Harry shouted and Greyback smirked.

I thought you wore glasses, Potter?” He breathed and I hissed again, breaking the silence. Jamie made an angry noise as a Snatcher produced Harry’s glasses. “It is! We caught Potter!

TaDa!

Sorry about the weight... I was re-writing some chapters and working on N.F.A.A

Here you go...


Chapter Eight – Inside Enemy Lines


They say they’ve got Potter” Narcissa Malfoy said in a cold voice. I could feel Harry fighting to remain in his own head as Jamie shook with anger. I was rigid, torn between fury and terror. “Draco, come here” I glared as the familiar face drew nearer. I was abruptly grabbed by my hair and forced to turn so that Harry was in front.

Well, boy?” Greyback rasped, his hand still in my hair. I saw Harry and Jamie glance in the gilded mirror in front of them. Hermione’s terrified breaths started to reach my ears.

I can’t- I can’t be sure” Draco muttered, seeming scared to look at Harry as he kept a distance from the werewolf, who finally let me go.

There’s something there... It could be the scar, stretched tight...” I hissed angrily as Lucius came close to Harry’s face, staring avidly. “Draco, come here, look properly! What do you think?” Draco obeyed his father for thirty seconds.

I don’t know” And I stared as Draco walked away again.

We must be sure, Lucius, before we call him” Narcissa called in a clear voice- I guessed that her voice was just permanently cold. “Remember what he did to Rowle and Dolohov?

What about the Mudbloods then?” Greyback growled, sounding slightly put that they didn’t believe him. I felt his fingers in my hair again.

Wait,” Narcissa said quickly, her cold voice turning sharp. “She was in Madam Malkin’s with Potter! Look, Draco, isn’t it the Granger girl?

I... Maybe... Yeah” Draco said without turning round. For the first time in my entire life, I felt something other than hatred for Draco Malfoy.

We know this one is the Daniels girl” Greyback said, pulling my head up. “We’re sure on it” Draco spun round at my surname.

How can you be sure? Daniels is a Metamorphagus” He said quickly, his eyes looking me up and down.

Actually, there is something familiar in the face... Draco” Lucius said, making me bare my teeth. Draco stepped between his parents slowly.

I’m not sure...” he said, his eyes probing my face as a small frown appeared on his face. Lucius looked to my left- at Jamie.

This is the Starlight boy!” He said happily and he stared down at Jamie, who glared back darkly. My eyes were still on Draco’s face as I sent them a startling bright blue for a couple of seconds.

Thank you for trying to help us, Draco’ I thought quickly as his mother straightened up. ‘I won’t forget this’ He jumped as my words entered his head but then stared into my face. ‘They need to know who I am though- please, Draco, tell the truth’ A slight frown crossed his features.

It’s Daniels- watch” And he leant forwards as if to kiss me. Instead, he whispered in my ear. “I’m not doing this to help them- I want out of this whole thing” And then his voice rose so that his parents could hear. “We got to your family” My hair turned a sickly green colour. “Your sister, Rosalie, was screaming for you- so she was silenced

NO!” I screamed, making him jump backwards as I started to struggle with the ropes again. Jamie was pulling against the restraints too as I caught the two words in Draco’s head.

I’m sorry’ I spat at him, my hatred magnified.

And then that must be the Weasley boy!” Lucius said, elated at his son’s brutality and their new found discovery.

What is this? What’s happening, Cissy?” Bellatrix said as she entered the room and walked forwards, her dark eyes falling on Hermione. “But surely, this is the Mudblood girl? This is Granger?” I snarled at the woman fighting to get free. As I heard the thoughts in the Death Eater’s head, I fell silent and tuned out of the conversation, ignoring the evidence of our fate. I closed my eyes and concentrated on Ginny, praying that she was at the Burrow. I heard the laughter before I saw them.

Fred, George and Ginny were playing exploding snap. The laughter came from Sean, Jamie’s father, who watched as the cards caught Ginny’s long hair. Molly, Arthur and Sophie, Jamie’s mother, were talking quietly round the coffee table. I was suddenly self- conscious of the ropes that were still round my Astro- projection self.

It feels ever so lonely at ours with just the two of us... I kept expecting Jamie to come down the stairs or Alicia to appear in the fireplace-” Sophie cut off, her eyes flicking towards me as I stood in front of the fire. “You see,” She said sadly, waving a hand towards me. “I’m seeing her now” She finished and Molly followed her gaze.

ALICIA!” She screamed and everyone jumped. Ginny sprang to her feet, her head whipping side to side.

Where?” She shrieked before her eyes fell on me. “Alicia! What- How- Where- I miss you!” She ran at me but I shook my head.

Don’t panic, I’m Astro- projecting... Don’t mind the ropes; we’re just in a bit of a situation, that’s all...” My eyes flicked towards the adults. “You need to get everyone out- now. Go to Aunt Muriel’s or something- the Burrow isn’t safe anymore... Sean, Sophie, you need to hide too- go to mine if you have to but- take of my family for me, they got to them

Who did?” Sean said quickly, standing up and I smiled at him.

The Death Eaters, of course... You need to move now- there isn’t much time- they know we’re with Harry, hence the ropes...” I heard Ron and Jamie shout in my ears. “I’m sorry- I love you all” I said quickly as a sharp pain appeared on my hand. I opened my eyes and was back at Malfoy Manor, my hand throbbing from the pinch Jamie had just given me.

You can have me!

Don’t you dare touch her!

I opened my eyes as the shouts cut off. Bellatrix was stepping back from Jamie, who had a hand print on his cheek. I watched as the witch threw Greyback his wand and drew a silver knife from inside her robes. She stepped towards Hermione and I froze, dreading the worst, but she slashed through the ropes holding her to the rest of us and threw her into the middle of the room. She then turned and cut me loose, dragging me towards Hermione as the others were shunted out of the room, towards the basement.

I loved how she communicates with Draco... How come she told him to tell who she was though??
I can't wait to see what happens!! Great posts! Please PAMS!

Chapter Nine- Insanity, Terror and Torture


For the first time in the whole of my life, I was terrified. But not for myself- for the others. I wasn’t sure what would happen next but I knew it would be bad. Hermione was unconscious at Bellatrix’s feet and I was standing in the middle of the room, face to face with Draco.

I want the truth, Daniels, and you will give it to me. Draco will see to that” Bellatrix said as she stepped away from Hermione. I took the chance and cast a wordless protection charm round her just in case.

Alicia- ” Draco whispered and my eyes snapped to his face- fire dancing in them.

I thought I could trust you for a second back then- the way you were lying about us. I guess you can’t change a person over time, can you?’ I saw him flinch slightly but he began to stare at me in a way I’d only seen on Jamie’s face.

It wasn’t my idea, Alicia! It was Bellatrix! She thought that you would come running to their rescue but you didn’t- I wasn’t involved’ I let the frown form on my face as I met his eyes. I noticed that, for once, they weren’t’ full of hatred.

Swear on it’ I replied, narrowing my eyes slightly as I brushed scarlet curls out of my face.

I swear on Albus Dumbledore’s grave, Alicia, I wasn’t involved

I believe you’ I thought, feeling totally insane. ‘I’m going to help you out of this, Draco, but you have to do what I say’ Insaina must have sat in now.

Anything’ I heard before someone tutted nearby.

If you won’t act, Draco, I’ll let Greyback do it!” Bellatrix threatened and I smirked. Draco let a small frown cross his features.

Yeah, Draco, don’t you want to fight me? Are you too scared? Why don’t step aside, little boy, and make room for the big bad wolf” I said, laughter in my voice, and I heard Greyback snarl. Draco stood there for a second so I sighed. ‘You said anything- so attack me. I’m not going to be too hard on you- promise’ He got the hint then, pointing his wand at me and sending something my way.

After a few minutes of me dodging everything that Draco sent my way, Bellatrix got bored- bored enough to send the Cruciatus curse my way, which hit me square in the back, sending me flying face first into the carpet, screaming in pain.

What do you want me to do?’ Draco thought as the pain lifted. I rolled over, gasping for air.

Hurt me’ I replied before Bellatrix aimed at my chest, making feel as if my lungs were on fire. I heard Draco’s silent refusal under my screams and tears. ‘Do- it- Draco- I- want- you to- hurt me’ I thought round the pain. As I lay on the floor, I caught a glimpse of his face as he raised his wand again- it was full of disgust. Bellatrix didn’t lift her wand while Draco sent the Severing charm at me again and again.

That’s enough” Bellatrix said after a while, making Draco step back, his thoughts nothing but apologies. She raised her wand and I curled into a ball trying to breath. “Fetch me the Goblin, Draco” I watched from the floor as he ran from the room. Bellatrix wrapped her hand in my light grey hair and I gasped in pain as I was forced to my knees. I felt the warm blood run down my bare skin in little trickles, my shirt and jeans ripped open, showing my underwear. My vision flashed and I saw Draco enter the room in the basement. My eyes were locked on Jamie but I noticed that there were more people down here- Luna and Mr Ollivander. I watched as the prisoners lined up against the wall and Draco dragged the barely conscious Goblin from the room. I blinked to find myself face to face with Draco again.

Are you okay?’ He thought and I glared at him. His lip twitched slightly and he turned away from me. I caught his eye run down the length of my body.

I will kill you if you look at me in that way again- that is a promise’ I threatened and I saw his cheek turn pink as a loud crack met our ears. I concentrated on the basement room and caught Ron’s thoughts- Dobby had arrived to save us.

Chapter Ten – Over- reaction


And now, we call the Dark Lord!” Bellatrix said, triumph in her voice. I was face down on the carpet and screamed when her finger touched the ugly mark on her arm. Bellatrix laughed evilly. “And I think we can dispose of the Mudblood’s. Greyback, take them if you want them” I felt the werewolf’s glee spike before I froze in shock.

NOOOOOO!” Ron’s shout mixed with three sets of footsteps and I turned my head to the side to see Harry, Ron and Jamie run into the room. I tried to push myself up, forcing myself to help them fight, but I couldn’t- and it was already too late.

STOP OR SHE DIES!” I looked towards Bellatrix’s voice and felt fear stab my stomach. She had pulled Hermione off the floor and held the silver knife to her throat. I was only a couple of feet away from them- if I could just do something. “Drop your wands!” Bellatrix whispered dangerously. “Drop them or we’ll see exactly how filthy her blood is!” I was suddenly torn- tell them to listen to the crazed woman and let all of us die or tell them to fight and lose Hermione. I looked at my best friend, at her calm, emotionless face, and chose.

Do it’ I thought quietly. I felt Jamie’s eyes on me but didn’t meet them.

I said, drop them!” Bellatrix screeched, pushing the blade into Hermione’s skin. I saw the bead of blood roll down her neck.

NOW!” I yelled, my face screwed up in pain. I heard the wands clatter to the floor as Draco’s apologies sounded round my head again.

Good! Draco, pick them up! The Dark Lord is coming, Harry Potter! Your death approaches!” Bellatrix leered as I watched Draco obey his Aunt’s order. As soon as he had them, he hurried back to his family, standing close to my head as I struggled to push myself up.

Are you okay?’ He thought and I was suddenly amazed by him again.

I’ll be fine... Look, the fight is going to start again in a minute and I want you to take cover’ I thought quickly, my eyes on his Aunt.

Now, Cissy, I think we ought to tie these little heroes up again, while Greyback takes care of Miss Mudblood here, Draco can deal with Daniels” I felt Draco mentally cringe. “I am sure the Dark Lord will not begrudge you the girl- or girls, Greyback, after what you have done tonight

A grinding noise had suddenly started and everyone looked up. The crystal and gold chandelier trembled, creaked and began to fall. Bellatrix screamed, threw Hermione to the ground and leapt to the side. I screamed as it moved towards the floor, right on top of Hermione, Griphook and me. Narcissa had dragged Draco out of the way just in time.

ALICIA!” Jamie yelled as I screamed as it made contact with the carpet and us. I felt something embed into my side and the sudden warmth as the blood started to flow.

Stupefy!” I heard Harry shout as the sound of people digging in the wreckage met my ears. I saw Jamie’s face, pale with fright, appear and his hands helped me to my feet. The room pitched and rolled as my vision blurred slightly.

DOBBY!” Narcissa screamed, her wand pointing at the doorway. I saw Bellatrix freeze. “You? You dropped the chandelier?” I was engulfed in panic as the elf trotted into the room, a shaking finger aimed at Narcissa.

You must not hurt Harry Potter” He squeaked and sadness gripped my heart for some unknown reason. Jamie helped me limp across the room.

Kill him, Cissy!” Bellatrix ordered, her eyes darting from the house- elf to my face to Harry and back. Her sister’s wand spun across the room with a crack. “You dirty little monkey! How dare you take a witch’s wand, how dare you defy your masters!” Bellatrix shrieked, pointing her knife at the elf. Harry had wrestled the wands from Draco’s grip and shot a stunner at Greyback as he stalked towards Jamie and me.

Dobby has no master!” Dobby squeaked loudly. “Dobby is a free elf, and Dobby has come to save Harry Potter and his friends!” I was inside Harry’s head for a second as the pain pulsing through his scar blinded him- we only had seconds left.

Ron- Jamie, catch and go!” Harry yelled, throwing two of the wands into the air. I winced as Jamie snatched it from the air. He apologised and shifted me so that I wouldn’t be in pain. Harry grabbed the goblin and Dobby’s hand. Ron threw Hermione unceremoniously over his shoulder as the three boys spun on the spot at the same time. The last thing I saw before blacking out was Bellatrix throwing the silver knife at Harry and Draco’s pale face, his grey eyes locked on me.

Soo, what's going to happen with Draco and everything when the war is over? Or during the war?

I can't tell you...

BTW,
Just to say that I've finished this on paper and all I have to is type it up...
Unfortunately, I think I may have got too carried away nearer the end...


Chapter Eleven- Control, Grief and the Past


I knelt beside the elf’s still body, silent tears leaving tracks on my cut cheeks as I watched Harry, Ron and Dean work among flowers. Jamie was holding a lamp so that they could see what they were doing, his eyes trained on my face, calculating every miniature facial expression I made. Harry had related the death of Dobby to the loss of Dumbledore- but I couldn’t do that- I wouldn’t do that. I had added Dobby’s name to my mental list of people I hadn’t said goodbye to and was praying that it was the last, that Draco had been lying.

You won’t see anything” Jamie whispered, his voice barely a breath. “Not with that still hurting you” His words brought a small fraction of the pain I felt to the front of my mind. I was refusing help until I knew about my family, letting the blood stain my blue shirt and white jeans as it flowed from the large gash in my side- the twisted piece of chandelier still lay where I had dropped it, a single crimson stained crystal droplet swinging in the breeze.

Thanks for reminding me” I retorted, my voice barely a whisper, flat and emotionless, almost uncaring. Jamie’s eyes looked over my face once more before they moved towards the three in the flowerbed. I let mine drift over the cliff edge, towards the blackness that had consumed the sea. A faint, out of focus image flashed through my thoughts and I pushed it away- I didn’t care what was happening now- what Voldemort was doing. A small part of my exhausted brain noticed that the image hadn’t affected Harry, showing that Harry had finally gained control over his visions. Hermione would be proud...

We should close his eyes” Someone said from behind me, announcing the arrival of the others. I obeyed the voice automatically, sliding Dobby’s eyelids shut with two shaking fingers. As soon as I pulled my hand away, I felt the urge to run- so I did. I stood and turned my back on the small funeral, heading for the cliff edge, where I lay on my uninjured side, staring out into the darkness. I didn’t even notice the stars vanish.

Rosalie stormed past me into the kitchen, Emmett right behind her.

Rose, just listen for a minute!” He said in a persuasive voice, which didn’t work. Rosalie turned to glare at her twin.

No- you listen- I don’t want to leave or hide, Emmett! I
can’t!” Rose half- shouted, her voice close to breaking. “Every memory I have of her is here- in the house, in this street, in this tiny little town in the middle of the countryside! I. Am. Not. Leaving!” I watched from the doorway that lead into the living room as the rest of my family stood in front of me, watching the two siblings.

What are you talking about?” I asked, my voice echoing, making me frown. They all ignored me.

Rose, love, we’re going to have to, as a precaution” My dad said, stepping forwards.

We don’t! They won’t come here- we’re not witches or wizards! They have no reason-

Alicia- they’ll come here about Alicia!” Emmett shouted and I saw everyone wince at my name. I felt the guilt spread through me as I realised the pain I’d put my family through. “Look, the paper has her photo in it- she’s wanted by the Ministry- who are now totally in the power of those lunatics she’s afraid of!

She
isn’t scared of them! She’s brave enough to stand up to them and fight- twice!” Rose retorted and I was shocked at the amount of love she had in her face. We’d always hated each other- I’d never really seen how much my sister loved me before now. Emmett hit the table with his fist, making her jump.

You’re stalling, Rosalie! That’s what this is!” He roared at her. “She isn’t coming back- Alicia is
never going to come back!

She was perfectly fine at Christmas!” Rose shouted back. Emmett covered his face with his hands, ignoring her.

She’s dead, Rose” His whisper broke, letting the pain escape.

No, I’m not!” I shouted, reaching out to touch my mum’s shoulder, to let her know I was behind them. “I’m alive- ” I cut off, staring at my hand as it passed through my mum’s shoulder as if I were a shadow.

I’m not sure about that, but I know you are” I spun at the familiar voice as a curse flew over our heads and hit Emmett squarely in the face.

NO!” I yelled, turning to glare at Bellatrix, as she stood alone, in the center of the living room, her wand aiming at her next victim- Jasper.

I hope little miss Seer sees this and comes running to your rescue, just a little too late” She aimed again as Jasper dropped and Rosalie screamed.

ALICIA, NO-

NO!
NO!” I screamed, trying to run forwards.

Ali, it’s okay! Alicia! Wake up!” Jamie’s voice made me freeze, suddenly disoriented. I was awake, wasn’t I? I was standing in the center of my living room at home, right?

She ‘az lost a lot of blood, Jamie, Zee wound was veery serious- let ‘er rest” Fleur? Suddenly, I was bolt- upright with a shaky gasp, my eyes wide open.

Alicia!” I felt Jamie’s hand on my arm as I gasped, tears spilling over my cheeks, which were healed. I flinched away from him, ignoring the shocked looks from the faces surrounding me. “Ali? What is it, love?” I ignored him, my tears slowly turning to sobs.

Alicia, sweetheart, you’re at Shell Cottage, remember?” Bill said quietly, leaning round Jamie, his voice paced slowly. I nodded, feeling my sobs become hysterics.

Family... Gone... Bell- Bell- Bellatrix... Draco... T- T- Truth... Mistake... Help...” I said, throwing the quilt away from me. I was wearing nothing but an overlarge t-shirt and my underwear. I could feel tight bandages round my waist.

I am cleaning all your zings, to get rid of all zee blood” Fleur explained in her accent and I guessed the top was Bill’s, who was pushing me back onto the pillows.

No, you don’t... Rest” He ordered, pulling a orange curl away from my face. I was suddenly tired, so I stopped resisting and flopped back down.

Jamie?” I whispered and I felt him sit on the edge of the mattress. “I’m sorry... I love you” I said and he took my hand, kissing it.

I love you too, Rainbow” He whispered, using my dad's old nickname for me. Fleur wrapped the duvet round me again and I drifted into a dreamless sleep.

TaDa!

You're being mean a lot in this fic. Umm, it's up to you; either way, I'm in.

Chapter Twelve- The Last Day of Safety


Shell Cottage was beautiful, with it’s shell- encrusted exterior walls and it’s ocean views. I skipped out on every meeting with Griphook, either sitting by Dobby’s grave, flicking at the green shoots or standing at the cliff edge, watching the waves roll towards me. Yesterday, during one of my ‘private times’, as Bill was calling them, I’d seen Sean and Sophie bury my family. I vowed to visit them after I was free from hiding.

Alicia?” I turned at Dean’s voice without a smile. “Are you okay?

I’ll be fine... Did Jamie get you to come out?” I asked, my eyes darting to the window with closed red curtains.

No... I was coming to say thanks, for getting us out of the basement... And to wish you luck with whatever you’re doing” He said, joining me at the very edge. I saw his eyes dart to my feet, where my toes were hanging over the edge. The ground was slowly crumbling away underneath them.

I’m not going to jump, Dean” I said calmly and he seemed to relax slightly. “We’ll see you after this is all over... Can you do something for me?” I asked without looking at him.

Course I will... I owe you a favour” He said, a smile in his voice.

Tell Ginny that I love her and that I’m sorry about skipping out early the other day... Tell her that I miss her” He agreed and then went back inside to finish packing, leaving me alone again.

I looked out over the ocean again, sighing. Plans were being made by the others to leave our sanctuary and break into Gringotts, leaving more hurt behind us. I had broken out the dresses again. I was wearing a red cotton dress, the wind blowing the skirt flat against my leg and blowing my long blonde hair over my face. I must have looked like one of those old school movie stars, who wait at the cliffs for her beloved to return home after a war. It made me want to laugh- I was hoping that my family would somehow return to me.

You will get ill, standing out ‘ere” Fleur’s voice scolded as she came up behind me. I turned and waved at Luna and Dean as Bill led them to the boundary line. “’Ow eez your side, today?

Fine, thank you... Look, Fleur, I know that you know we’re planning to leave again” I said and she sighed. The red curtain twitched, giving Jamie away. “We don’t want to hurt anyone else, so it’s for the best

You are not ‘urting anyone, Alicia! Zis eez where you are safe!” She said, taking my hands in hers. “We can look after you ‘ere!

I can’t let you do that, Fleur- what if someone found out we were here? You’d be in even more danger! If anything happened to you or Bill...” I couldn’t finish my sentence, swallowing back tears.

We look after ourselves, Alicia... I want to keep you all safe, too” Fleur pleaded and I tried to sooth her.

Okay... I’ll see if I can convince the others that we can stay here” I lied, knowing I wouldn’t even open my mouth. She smiled, leading me inside and asking if I wanted to help with dinner. I sliced up the raw steaks with a fake smile.

I kept quiet during dinner, sitting beside Jamie with my fake smile still on my face. Fleur kept glancing at the others and throwing looks in my direction. Bill glanced at me as if I were insane.

What do you want for dinner tomorrow? We’re going shopping in the afternoon” Bill said in an attempt to break the awkward silence.

Surprise us” I said in a flat voice, gaining every eye on my face.

Are you okay, sweetheart?” Bill asked, using the usual name and leaning forwards in concern. “You seem...” He paused, trying to find the right word.

Off” Jamie said helpfully, patting my knee in a reassuring way. Harry’s face said ‘Don’t worry, we’re leaving in the morning’. “Did you see something?” I looked up at Jamie as he tried to help me out of the corner and then at Bill’s worried face, nodded and felt tears pool in my eyes.

What did you see, dear?” Fleur asked kindly and I blurted out the truth- well, sort of.

I saw Sean and Sophie bury my family...” I whispered, using my vision from yesterday as an excuse. “Sorry...” I pushed my chair back, ran from the room and up the stairs, locking myself in the small room I was sharing with Hermione. I breathed deeply, getting control of myself before pulling my backpack out of Hermione’s charmed silver clutch bag. It was my favourite- shiny red vinyl in the shape of a corset, complete with the black lacing on the front- a present from Rosalie and Emmett when I had started Hogwarts. Unzipping it, I set about repacking everything I had bought with me- several dresses, shirts, jeans, heels, boots, a pair of black plastic welly boots, books, photo albums, the box of small mementos and the miniature dragon toy Jasper had given me before I had left.

Alicia?” Bill’s voice came through the door and I froze, my bed covered in my things. “Alicia, love, just hear me out for a minute” He said and I flicked a hand towards the door as I dropped onto the bed, my face in my hands. Bill walked in and didn’t mention my half packed bag.

It’s just too hard...” I explained and he nodded his head. “I hate goodbyes

I want to tell you something that I haven’t even told Fleur” He said, one arm round my shoulders. I rested against him, listening curiously. “Last year, when Greyback attacked me” I stiffened. I hadn’t spoken about the fight since it happened. “I thought I was going to die. I was ready for it- without saying goodbye to anyone... But then he got distracted” He said, nudging my slightly. “The brave woman sitting next to me said something that I remember to this day

Don’t you dare give up... You’re better than giving up” I said, remembering what I had shouted at him.

Exactly... Fleur told me where she found you this afternoon... She was worried about you- being that close to the edge...

I wouldn’t jump- I couldn’t do that to Jamie” I said quietly.

Well... Let me give you some advice... You’re better than giving up, Alicia, so don’t give up” I smiled and he nudged my arm.

I’m not giving up...” I said and he shook his head.

That ‘s what it feels like to you- to the rest of us, we can see that you’ve lost your fight... I want you to promise me something” He said and I jumped at the chance to do something for him before leaving.

Anything

Promise me you won’t give up... I may not be a Seer, but I know something’s going to happen... I want you to look after Jamie and Ron, you know how they are” I laughed and he smiled at me. “That’s the Alicia I want to see

I promise” I said, nodding my head.

That night, I thought about what Bill had said and was still awake when Harry’s thoughts ran through my head in the early hours of the morning.

Time to go... Tell Hermione to drink up

Harry says time to go” I whispered, shaking Hermione awake. I dressed in tight black jeans and a short sleeved black shirt. I’d spent a good couple of hours drawing the Dark Mark onto my forearm with a permanent marker pen earlier. I slipped my feet into a pair of matt black, rounded- toes heels as Hermione took a swig of Polyjuice Potion. “That’s just creepy” I stated, looking over to see Bellatrix bent double on Hermione’s bed.

She taste’s nasty” She said, pulling a face. I laughed and threw some robes at her to change into before slipping out of the door. The boys were already outside waiting for us.

Nice...” Jamie said as I walked towards them in the faint light from the sunrise. I twirled and giggled as Ron pretended to vomit.

Like my tattoo?” I asked, flashing the Mark at them.

It looks real” Jamie said with a frown. I laughed and kissed him quickly. Ron mimed vomiting again.

I should hope so- it took me two hours and four permanent marker pens, not to mention cramp. Hermione’s just checking the bag” I said, screwing my face up.

Try shoulder length... Black? No, it still looks like you” Ron said and I changed the shape of my face, going for heart- shaped. “Better... Your hair, try longer... Longer... Longer... Perfect” He said and I opened my eyes. My black hair was now down to waist. I pulled at a scarlet ribbon that was tied round my wrist and pulled my hair out of my face. “I think your eyes should stand out... Like orange or something

I’m supposed to be a Death Eater, not a cat, Ron” I said, frowning at him.

Well... I think you should be different- look at Bellatrix, she sticks out ‘cause she’s insane” Ron countered and I pursed my lips.

All right... You’ve got a point... How’s this?” I asked, blinking and turning my eyes a bright yellow.

Weirdly, it suits you” He laughed and I went to punch him. “No, seriously!” He said, dodging away from me. “What about a name?

How’s Tiger Lily?” Hermione said, appearing in the doorway.

The Indian princess from Peter Pan?” Harry snorted, glancing at me. “Oh, I get it now... You do look something like her

What’s Peter Pan?” We ignored Ron and I started to transfigure Jamie. We’d come up with fictional characters for him and Ron. Jamie was to be Warren Peace, my husband. Ron was a Transylvanian who Bellatrix was supposed to be showing around. Harry and Griphook were going to be under the cloak.

Right, stories straight? Let’s go” I said, cracking my knuckles. Hermione threw the cloak over Harry and Griphook and we Apparated away from Shell Cottage.

Chapter Thirteen
Gringotts Escape

We’ve been discovered!” Griphook said as he looked up at the waterfall. I made an angry noise, pushing my self to my feet. Harry pointed his wand at the old goblin again as I shook out my black hair.

What now?” I snapped, kicking a pebble.

We keep going” Harry said as Hermione’s head snapped towards the tunnel.

Harry, I think I can hear footsteps!” She said, panic in her voice and making me roll my eyes, which Jamie saw.

Come on” Harry said, following Bogrod. The others started to move but Ron noticed that I hadn’t moved.

Alicia?” He asked, making the others halt. “Come on

I’ll catch up” I said absently, taking a step towards the oncoming danger. Jamie’s hand wrapped round my wrist tightly and I glared at it. “Let go

Don’t be an idiot” He said sharply, pulling me along. “You can’t do any good when you’re in Azkaban

Is this a female thing?” I said through my teeth, trying to yank myself free. “Do you think I can’t look after myself?

You know I don’t think that!” He said angrily, yanking me round a corner.

Right- so explain this sudden bout of protective behaviour then! Not letting me go to Godric’s Hollow, now this!” I tried to break free again and his grip tightened, making my hand go numb.

Look at what happened! It was a trap! Look at what happened to Harry!” He snapped, glaring at me over his shoulder as we turned another corner. The others, who were plainly ignoring us, saw the dragon and ran back round the corner.

If I went, that might not have happened!” I shouted, pushing my hair back over my shoulder as the dragon spat fire towards us. I raised a hand palm up towards it, making the fire part round Jamie and me as I glared at the blonde.

This is ridiculous!” Jamie yelled, throwing my wrist away. “You can’t prevent everything! Why are you trying to start an argument?

I don’t have to try!” I shouted back as the fire continued to roar round us. “Ever since Christmas, you’ve been treating me like I’m a porcelain doll- like I could break at any moment! It’s gotten worse since Malfoy Manor!

Maybe because I care about you!” Jamie shouted, his face red. “I don’t want to see you hurt anymore!” He made an angry noise and stormed away, meeting the others as they came back into the tunnel.

Don’t walk away from me!” I snapped and Ron glanced at us nervously.

Shut up, Alicia” Jamie said coldly, launching a pair of clackers at my head, hard. I snatched them out of the air, glancing and muttering angrily.

Both of you shut up” Harry said, his patience gone. “Find the cup- Alicia, try to find a way out

*


The dragon?” Jamie yelled as we flew high over London. “That was your great idea?

I channelled my inner Hagrid! At least we’re out!” I shouted back, looking over my shoulder. Harry was looking over the side of the dragon behind me, Hermione sobbing behind him and Ron swearing loudly behind her. Jamie was glaring at me over Ron’s shoulder.

If you’re going to start arguing, can you please do it later?” Harry yelled over the wind, making me smile and fall silent. Jamie turned to watch the land fly away underneath us.

Is it just my imagination, or are we losing height?” Ron shouted after a while, peering over the side of our scaly ride.

I really want to say it’s your imagination, but we are” I yelled, following it with a sleep deprived, hunger- fuelled, half- mad laugh that cut off dramatically when Harry said jump. In the fall, I somehow ended up in Jamie’s arms, clutching him tightly and squeezing my eyes shut.

We hit the freezing water hard, the shock making the breath fly out of my mouth in a rush of bubbles as I opened my eyes to see the green world we’d landed in. Jamie grabbed my waist and kicked us out of the mud, towards the surface. We emerged last, a bit of weed in my ice blue hair, making the others glance at me as I started to sob. Jamie laughed, pulling me towards the shore.

Why are you crying?” He asked as Hermione pulled a bottle of Dittany from the beaded bag and started handing out dry clothes.

I don’t know!” I cried as he pulled my shirt off, my teeth chattering and making him laugh. I wrapped my arms round myself as he pulled my shoes off and tipped the water out of them before yanking my jeans off and pulling a black halter neck dress with a skull and crossbones design on it over my head.

Come here” He wrapped me in a hug after he’d changed into a pair of dry robes, letting me cry into his chest. “It’s okay, we’re okay” He repeated, stroking wet hair, which was still icy blue. Harry glanced at me and I knew his thoughts- this was the colour my hair was when we first met. Hermione gave Jamie two bottles of pumpkin juice and he helped me open mine due to my shaking hands.

Well, on the up side, the lovebirds are friends again and we got the Horcrux” Ron said, watching his hands heal and not seeing Jamie’s rude hand gesture. “On the down side-

- no sword” Harry said, shooting a confused glance at me as I stopped crying and hiccoughed.

That double crossing little scab…” Ron muttered as I wiped my eyes with the back of my hand. Harry pulled the cup out of his jacket pocket and set it on the grass.

What’ll happen to it, do you think?” Hermione asked suddenly, staring across the lake at the dragon. “Will it be all right?

You sound like Hagrid” I said, smiling while Ron shook his head.

It’s a dragon, Hermione, it can look after itself. It’s us we need to worry about” He said seriously.

What do you mean?” Jamie asked, frowning at him as he pushed his hair out of his eyes and picked the weed out of mine.

Well, I don’t know how to break this to you, but I think they might have noticed we broke into Gringotts” Ron said, making us all burst into laughter. Once we’d started, it quite very hard to stop, but we managed it, all of us sprawled across the bank on our backs and coughing or hiccoughing.

What are we going to do, though?” Hermione said as I wiped my face, leaning against Jamie’s stomach. “He’ll know, won’t he?” Her words seemed to trigger my ability because my vision blurred and I was jolted sideways as the blue sky vanished, being replaced by a dimly lit room.

Voldemort was standing in front of a group of Death Eaters, a terrified goblin kneeling between them and their master.

What did you say to me?” Voldemort said, his voice high and cold, making me narrow my eyes. I glanced around, spotting Bellatrix in the crowd, her face bruised and pale as she stared at the trembling goblin. “Say it again!” Voldemort murmured, but the creature stayed silent. “Say it again!

M- my Lord” The goblin stammered and I saw his wide, terrified black eyes glance up quickly. “M- my Lord… We t- tried t- to st- stop them… Im- imposters my Lord… Broke- broke into the- into the Lestrange’s V- Vault

Imposters? What imposters?” Voldemort questioned as Bellatrix turned completely white. “I thought Gringotts had ways of revealing imposters? Who were they?

It was… It was… The P- Potter b- boy and the- and the Da- Daniels girl and th- three accomplices…” The goblin stuttered. I stared at Voldemort, wondering why he was interested in me and watching as fear rippled across his face quickly.

And they took?” He said loudly, the fear entering his voice, making it higher and colder. “Tell me! What did they take?

Don’t answer, don’t answer- please don’t sat it!” I said, glad I wasn’t able to be seen or heard.

A- a s- small golden c- cup, m- my Lord…” The goblin muttered, visibly shaking.

Voldemort let out a terrifying scream of rage, the Elder Wand slashing through the air. The gobbling fell and the Death Eaters scrambled for the door quickly as the Wand fell again and again, some of them falling with each flash of green. I watched as Bellatrix and Lucius, who looked slightly battered too, threw people behind them in their hurry for escape.

What are you thinking?” I said as Voldemort stopped killing and began to pace through the dead. His snake-like face contorted in thought. He changed direction, striding over bodies to the door and into the garden, where he said something in Parseltongue. I cringed as Nagini came out of the shadows beside me, slithering towards her master.


I sat up, gasping, and head butted Jamie in the nose, making him lose his worried expression.

Sorry! Sorry!” I said quickly as he swore, clutching his nose. Blood trickled through his fingers and I apologised again as he moved his hand for me to fix it. “Episkey… I really didn’t mean to do that” I added, waving a hand over his face. He winced as his nose reset before speaking.

I know… What happened?” I asked, glancing round to find Ron and Hermione leaning over Harry.

Same thing as you, I guess… it’s only just happened” Jamie said, tapping his nose nervously. “What did you see?

You- Know- Who finding out about the cup… it was scary” I said, grabbing the beaded bag and thrusting my entire arm inside in, routing through the mayhem inside. “You know, I still don’t like that snake of his…” I shivered as I pulled out my backpack by one of the wings.

Why did you bring that thing?” Jamie asked, frowning at the red plastic heart shaped bag with black leather wings.

In case of an emergency, I packed a few things of my own” I said, dropping the beaded bag next to Hermione and walking away from the others, Jamie following me.

What sort of emergency?” Jamie frowned, watching as I pulled out a pair of black leather trousers and a black leather corset top, which I changed into. “Alicia, what sort of emergency?

A really big emergency where a dress would get in the way… Can you tighten that leg for me?” I said absently, motioning to the laces up my left leg. He did as I asked, still frowning. I then pulled out a pair of heels that had buckles high up my thigh, which I fought with for a second.

Stop” He said finally, catching my hand as I reached for the bag again. “I want you to tell me what you know” He said, putting both hands on my face, making me look at him.

I told you- I saw him find out about the cup” I said, not looking at him directly. His fingers smoothed the skin behind my ears, making me glance at his face.

I said what you know, not what you saw” He said patiently. I sighed and decided to dodge the answer.

You know, while you were in that vault, I had another vision” I said slowly, watching the light shine behind his eyes. I knew that it would always be there whenever he looked at me and it made my heart squeeze. “When we find the Horcrux, that only leaves You- Know- Who and his creepy snake… We’ll go after them… it’s really dangerous

Have you seen someone die?” He said, jumping to the worst conclusion.

No!” I said quickly, shaking my head. “Nothing like that… But, if they was to happen, what would you want to do before?

I don’t get it” He said simply, staring at me. “Are you talking about…” He raised an eyebrow at me and I felt the smile tilt my lips slightly.

Naughty…” I said, tapping his nose lightly. “I meant something that was permanent… that you haven’t had yet” I said, watching him carefully. He seemed more confused than before and I giggled. “You know… something that’s linked to that ring in your back pocket” I added and he sighed, pulling it out.

Can’t keep anything secret…” He mumbled, looking at it. “Fine… you can have your surprise early then” He slipped the band onto my third finger on my left hand. I ignored it, cold against my skin and wrapped my arms round his neck, pulling him closer.

Well… If we find the Horcrux quick enough…” I smiled slyly and he kissed me roughly, making me giggle again. He let me go as Harry sat up, sweat pouring down his face. He explained that he’d seen what I had, also saying that the last Horcrux was at Hogwarts. I pulled my longbow and a quiver of arrows from the bag, strapping them to my back before covering them with a light weight black cloak with a large hood.

Chapter Fourteen
GOing Back Home

Right then, we need to think of the best way to get you out of here” Abenforth Dumbledore said after we’d finished the bread, cheese and mead he’d given us. “Can’t be done at night, you heard what happens if anyone moves outdoors during darkness: caterwauling charm’s set of, they’ll be on you like Bowtruckles on Doxy eggs- I don’t reckon I’ll be able to pass off a stag as a goat a second time” I stared at the man sitting opposite me, so like his brother, not understanding what he was saying. “Wait for day break, when curfew lifts, then you can put your cloak back on and set out on foot. Get right out of Hogsmeade, up into the mountains, and you’ll be able to Disapparate there. Might see Hagrid” Abenforth added, glancing at me as a scarlet streak appeared in my long black hair. “he’s been hiding in a cave up there with Grawp ever since they tried to arrest him

We’re not leaving” Harry said calmly and I nodded.

We need to get into Hogwarts” I added, watching the man as he laughed at us.

Don’t be stupid” He said and I raised an eyebrow at him, making Jamie put a hand on my knee.

We’ve got to” Harry said, his voice still calm.

What you’ve got to do is take your friends, including miss Centaur foal there” Abenforth said, jabbing his thumb in my direction. “And get as far away from here as possible

Have you heard anything about the Centaurs?” I asked quickly and he shook his head. I slumped in my seat, making Jamie take my hand. Harry took my left hand and glanced down when he felt my engagement ring. “Later” I said sadly, answering his unsaid question.

You don’t understand” Harry said, letting my hand go and leaning forwards. “There isn’t much time. We’ve got to get into the castle. Dumbledore- I mean, your brother- wanted us-

My brother Albus wanted a lot of things done...” Abenforth started and I stood up, excusing myself to the bathroom. I stared at my reflection in the grimy mirror, thinking about my remaining family. Jamie and the others were trying to argue their way into Hogwarts. Hagrid was in a cave somewhere in the mountains with Grawp. Ronan, Magorian and the other Centaurs were playing happy herd in the Forest, not giving a care about what was happening. Firenze was actually inside the castle, where who knows what was happening.

Ali? You still in here?” I jumped, clutching my throat as Jamie’s voice came through the wooden door. He cracked the door open, glanced inside, and walked up to me, snaking an arm round my waist. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you” He said, studying our reflection in the mirror.

I was lost in thoughts… What is it?” I asked, twisting in his arms to face him, wrapping my arms round his neck.

What were you thinking about?” He asked, watching my face as he swept a lock of black hair out of my face.

Hagrid, Firenze, the herd, you…” I shrugged, turning back to face the mirror.

We’ve got a way into the school” He said quietly, making me pause as I watched the candle light flicker off our faces. “It’s a tunnel behind that painting of the fireplace

You sound like it’s a bad thing” I noted, meeting his eyes in the mirror.

You’ll understand in a minute, come on, we’re ready to go” He said, offering his hand. I pushed it out the way and clung to his side, making him smile. We walked back into the main room and I froze in the doorway.

Alicia? Is that really you?” The new arrival said, staring at me. “Wow. That’s all I have to say, wow

N- Neville?” I stammered, rendered completely silent. He laughed at my gobsmacked face and I ran forwards, tackling him in a hug so hard he took several steps back. “What- how- when…” I said, refusing to let him go.

Ali, let him breathe” Jamie said in a worried voice and I stepped back, looking at Neville properly.

What, in the name of Merlin, happened to you?” I snapped, frowning as I let my fingers hover over the injuries on his face.

This is nothing, you should see Seamus” Neville said, batting away my hand and shrugging it off. We followed him into the tunnel, listening to the brief pieces of information he gave us and answering what questions we could as mysteriously as possible.

Nev, what about Firenze?” I asked, unable to stop myself.

“He’s fine, now” He said, walking backwards to look at the five of us. The heat was quickly sucked from my body. “I mean, he’s fine, Alicia” Neville backtracked quickly, seeing Jamie’s hard look.

What ha- happened?” I asked shakily, making Jamie and Ron grab my arms. Neville looked at Jamie awkwardly and I shook my head. “Tell me, Nev, please” I pleaded, staring at him. “He’s part of the little family I have” My words seemed to have swayed him, as did the little nod from Jamie.

The Carrows happened” Neville said darkly.

Those Death Eater teachers?” Jamie asked, still leading me forwards.

Yeah, that’s them” He retorted, spitting. “When they first started, everything was almost normal- apart from Snape and them and people missing, obviously- then, one day they heard Ginny and Luna talking at breakfast, wondering where you lot were and if it was safe to try contacting you, Alicia- and the Carrows went overboard with the punishment, torturing them for information… Firenze exploded into the Hall, fury clear on his face and pulled the girls away, rearing and shouting at the Carrows- nearly took Alecto’s head off, too” I smiled weakly, seeing it play out in my head. “They decided to focus on him, then- it wasn’t pretty, I’m telling you… Someone must’ve gone for Snape, because he burst into the hall next and tells the Carrows to stand down” He turned to look at my shocked expression.

Snape? The Snape?” Ron asked, clearly shocked too.

The one and only… He told them ‘stand down! The Dark Lord wishes the Centaur remains unharmed!” I stumbled as Neville spoke, making Jamie wrap an arm round my waist.

Keep going” I said faintly, closing my eyes as things slowly started to become clearer.

Firenze didn’t like that, shouting at Snape about being a disgrace and a traitor and no matter what he does, her blood will always be on his hands” Neville gave me a questioning glance, but I just shrugged weakly. “Snape turned even paler than normal and glowered at him. It looked like he was going to let the Carrows continue, but he said ‘do not bring up the past, Centaur, especially one you know nothing about- your Alicia wouldn’t be grateful if her soon- to- be remaining family member is killed, would she?” Neville said, imitating Snape’s voice for a second time. “Firenze bristled and snapped something at him- all anyone could make out was your name, which was the first he’d even mentioned you, by the way. Snape just smirked and came out with the best part of the argument- ‘we’ll see how long it takes before little Alicia’s heart draws her back to you, then she’ll do the Dark Lord’s bidding

Never” Jamie snarled, pulling me closer. I felt my legs shake as I clutched him to me tightly, never wanting him to let go. Neville’s eyes caught the glimmer of the ring on my finger and I nodded absently at his unspoken question, willing him to continue.

Firenze’s exact reaction, but Snape just laughed… Said something like ‘she’ll do as she is told for once- especially with you and her precious Starlight in the equation’- Alicia!” He stopped, worry on his face as my legs gave out and Jamie and Ron caught me before I hit the ground. “Sorry!” I wouldn’t sure if the apology was to me or Jamie.

It’s okay, Neville, she would’ve made you tell her anyway” Jamie said, waving the others on. “I’ll carry her, don’t worry” He held me close, swinging me into his arms as he followed behind the others through the tunnel. “So, at least he’s still alive, right? We didn’t know what we were walking into, did we?” He seemed to be talking to me, but his voice was quiet and far away.

So. He wanted me to his dirty work for him. He knew the only way to get to me was through those I cared about the most. He’d killed my parents to flush me out of hiding. Well. He had done his homework on me. He knew all my buttons. Threaten my friends and family, and see me flip out and do something stupid.

Snape’s right” I whispered eventually and the colour drained from Jamie’s face as he stopped talking quickly. “If Vol- You- Know- Who wants me, he certainly knows how to get me… I’d never be able to abandon you, or Firenze, or even Hagrid- they know I’d come back to them, with you right beside me

Ali, please” He whispered, the sound pained.

Think about it… With me as his prisoner, he wouldn’t need Death Eaters on lookout- he’d use me. He wouldn’t need to torture people to get inside their heads- he’d use me. He wouldn’t have to use different Death Eaters as spies- he’d use me. He wouldn’t even need an army- he’d just use me” I felt him flinch underneath me every time I whispered the word me.

He can’t have you” He said after a while of silence, making me jump slightly even though the words were barely a whisper. “He can’t have you” He repeated, his voice slightly louder as he locked his eyes on mine. “You’re mine

I will always be yours” I whispered, unhooking an arm from his neck and touching his cheek lightly.

You’re good, and kind, and loving, and… And… I won’t let them touch you” He said, looking up, away from my face as we reached a set of stairs.

I’ll walk now, love” I murmured and he set me on my feet, taking my hand and paying with my engagement ring, still not looking. “Sweetheart” I said softly, using my still raised hand to gently push his eyes back to mine. “I know you won’t let them touch me” I said, brushing my finger- tips over the corner of his lips. “He’d never get me, anyway” I said in an attempt to lighten the mood. “He wants me alive, they’d have to kill me to capture me

Not even remotely funny” He said, pulling me in for a kiss and shaking his head seriously.

Sorry” I managed to whisper quickly, before I was effectively shut up. Neville said something loudly that I didn’t quite catch and then pushed open another hidden door and jumped out into a roar of noise. Hands appeared from the other side and Harry, Ron and Hermione vanished into the noise too. Curiously, we neared the place and were sucked into the room beyond by more hands.

We were immediately separated, Jamie being pulled to the left while I was hauled forwards, into hugs and laughter. I knew the people round me, but shock at seeing them all together like this robbed my voice, just like with Neville. I hugged the huggers, and answered the callers, my eyes darting quickly round the head of blonde hair I would recognise immediately, and spotting it in the crowd, next to another familiar blonde.

Guys, I- er- I’m going over here” I said, pushing my way through the crowd, who seemed to know where I was heading, and split quickly, earning my gracious smile. “Catch me!” I yelled, popping out of the crowd and leaping on Jamie, who did as I said and spun me round, forgetting Lavender beside him and kissing me hard and long. The crowd whistled, making my hair turn scarlet and tumble into our eyes.

Jeesh, you act like you can’t be separated for a single minute” I broke free, gasping for air and glanced round at the voice.

Well, funny you should say that, Lavender” Neville popped into existence beside the girl, smiling broadly as his eyes told me not to start any trouble. “Alicia and Jamie are engaged!” More whistles and shouts erupted in the room and Lavender crossed her arms moodily, sulking into the mob of people that began it’s weird tug of war with us again, this time making sure we were together, until we ended up under the doorway we’d just been yanked through.
