The Next Heir

Julia Springforth was someone to be envied at Hogwarts. She was beautiful and had friends who were famous like Rose Weasley, James Potter and Scorpius Malfoy. Despite that, she never felt proud of herself for being a half- veela, thus she kept it a secret. All her life, she asked herself why she was abandoned by her father and then her mother afterwards, but never got any answers. And then, she soon found herself having abnormal abilities… even for a witch.

((The story will start with Julia being in the first year but there will be a timeskip bringing them to the main story - the fourth year.))

22. The Chase Begins

My eyes were heavy.

 

"Scorpius? A Death Eater?" James' voice was raging.

 

"Now is not the time to discuss. The adults have already started chasing him." Teddy's eyes was glowing with anger, his hair turning into a dark shade of red.

 

He looked back at me, at my powerless body lying on the floor.

 

"Who are you?" Teddy asked. 

 

Suddenly, a burst of green flame shoot across the tent, collapsing it to one side and reveal the starry night sky above. There were a Death Eater mark hovering above the clouds.

 

Again, I felt the pain surging through my body, something burning on my left wrist.

 

"James! Look out!" Teddy shouted, throwing his body forward to push James away from the green flame that was lunging at him.

 

Get up. I told myself.

 

Julia. You need to get up.

 

Not this time. You're not going to be helpless this time.

 

"Teddy!!" James' voice cut through the night. My eyes immediately focused onto another ball of green flame than was rocketing towards Teddy.

 

"Expecto Patronum!"

A surge of energy burst through my wand. Even if I couldn't concentrate onto a single happy memory, the magic still went through.

 

After all this time, I was always the one letting everyone else help me.

 

The white serpent - my patronus - blocked the attack that was aiming for Teddy in seconds. I sat up with much effort, my wand still firmly in my hand, directing the giant serpent towards the attacker.

 

In front of me, was a Malfoy.

 

I didn't know which Malfoy, but I knew that in fact it was a Malfoy judging on his clothing.

 

"Death Eaters... To be reunite... You... united... them..." Voldemort's voice crept into the back of my mind again.

 

The Malfoy has lifeless eyes. That was the first thing that came to my mind. As if his mind wasn't his anymore - it was taken over by something else.

 

I looked down at my left wrist. A Death Eater mark was tattooed there.

 

The mark took over Death Eaters' minds. Was that what's going on?

 

"Julia..." 

 

I looked at James. He seemed astounded to see my patronus.

 

"Teddy!" Victoire quickly ran over to James and Teddy, helping them up. Hailey ran over to my side.

 

"Julia, are you okay?" Hailey's voice was breaking as if she was frightened with what was going on.

 

And then, I knew what I had to do.

 

"Hailey, which direction did Rose and Scorpius go?"

 

"Towards Hogwarts." Hailey replied.

 

Hogwarts? Convenient.

 

I stood up and made sure the Malfoy that attacked us was unconscious under my white serpent. The white serpent slid back into my wand.

 

James and Teddy also got onto their feet as well, Teddy's eyes looking at me like an enemy.

 

"Where are you going?" James asked as he saw me walking into the backyard of the house. A hint of frustration and confusion was in his eyes. He was struggling to trust me. But he still decided to do it.

 

I looked back into his eyes, hesitant about everything.

 

"I'm going to follow Scorpius and Rose. It know it sounds crazy and I own everyone an explanation." My hands grabbed a broom and I steadied myself onto it.

 

"But I can't explain right now when we're running out of time. I just have a feeling I can... stop this whole thing."

 

Teddy, Victoire and the youngers kids entered the backyard. Teddy stood still.

 

The broom started picking me off the ground when James and Hailey got onto their own brooms as well.

 

Hailey nodded at me as if to say 'We're coming with you', and I looked to James, his eyes saying the same thing.

 

"You guard the house, Teddy. Quidditch genius' gonna save the day." James grinned and joked around, obviously trying to loosen up the tension and fright in Hugo and Lily's eyes. 

 

My eyes finally met Teddy's.

 

"You owe me the biggest explanation, Julia. So come back soon." Teddy said, his arms wrapping around Victoire and the kids, his fist clenching his wand tight.

 

James, Hailey and I set off.

 

I was determined to stop Voldemort. Stop him from using my body as a vessel, to vent his anger from the past.
