14. An Unexpected Guest

Once the Easter holidays were over classes were as usual. I’ve started to become a favourite of Professor Binns. I’ve always loved History and History of Magic was no exception. Hermione’s started to get a little jealous but she’s still the smartest girl in our year.

 

But a week before summer strange things started to happen. I was walking through the courtyard with Harry, Hermione and Ron when Harry stopped for a minute. He looked like he was in pain. “What is it, Harry?” Hermione asked. “It my scar,” Harry croaked, “It’s stinging.”  Then an unusually cold breeze blew. Suddenly a man in a black cloak appeared.

 

As the four of us turned to run, the man shot at us with his wand. This spell he shot at us was a relocation charm because we found ourselves in the Astronomy Tower instead of the courtyard. “Harry Potter,” the man said “We meet once again,” Then the man took down his hood to reveal a bony, pale face with two slits for a nose.

 

“Is that…” I began. “Yep,” Harry said “Lord Voldemort.” I shivered as Harry said ‘Lord Voldemort’. Over the year I learnt about how Voldemort killed Harry’s parents and know he want Harry dead. “If you want to kill Harry, you’ll have to kill me first.” I demanded. Hermione looked at me as if I was crazy but I knew what I was doing.

 

“You stupid girl. Stand aside.” Voldemort said. I stood in front of Harry. “No.” I said ignorantly. This made Voldemort angry so he pointed his wand as me as shouted “Avada Kedavra!” When the spell hit me, instead of killing me in an instant, it made my legs collapse from under me. I landed on my side and made it look like I was dead.

 

I was listening to their conversation. I could hear Hermione and Ron struggling. “Now Harry,” Voldemort began “If you hand yourself over, I’ll let them live. But if you don’t they’ll die.”  I knew what Harry was thinking so I decided to shuffle quietly behind the telescope. “OK,” Harry said, “I’ll do it. Just let them go.” 

 

Voldemort lets go of Ron and Hermione. He pulls out his wand and points it directly at Harry. Once Voldemort cast the curse I jumped in front of Harry and cast a hex of my own. “Sectumsempra!” the killing curse faded and before my hex hit Voldemort, he disappeared.

 

After Voldemort disappeared, I turned to Harry, Ron and Hermione. “You saved us.” Ron said. “Don’t do that,” Hermione said sternly “You scared me.”

“Just because you forgot I can’t die.” I giggled. Then Harry walked up to me and gave me a hug. “Thank you.” He whispered into my ear. “Your welcome.” I whispered back.
