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.))


14. Voldemort's Bloodline

Suddenly, the dark green mist surrounding me faded away. I was back in the corridor where I was interrogating Hailey - now only to find her choking to death. Hailey was struggling on the floor, trying to pull something off her neck. That must be why I was freed from the dark green mist, since Hailey couldn't control the locket anymore.

The locket around her neck appeared as if it was alive, tightening around her neck on its own will. I quickly grabbed the locket and tried to pull it off Hailey's neck.

The locket's chain seemed unbreakable and it was getting titghter and tighter by every second.

"Foolish. Don't help her. She tried to destroy you." A cold and sharp voice boomed through the hall. I looked up and shivered.

A bald man was standing in front of me. He was wearing a black cloak and his skin was the palest color of white I've ever seen. And the worst part is - instead of a nose - he has two slits like a snake's for nostrils.

He looked just like the Dark Lord from descriptions.

I grabbed my wand tightly and pointed it at him.

"You must be the one doing this to Hailey! Tell the locket to release her neck!" I shouted, my hand shivering as I was holding the wand.

The man looked down at me sternly for a second, but then boomed into laughter.

"This filthy person right here...", he looked at Hailey in disgust, "She wanted to tormented you... She begged the locket for unimaginable powers and abilities in order to detroy you... And yes, the locket gave her the parseltongue and time-turning ability... But..."

He snickered.

"The power eventually backfired... She's just not the true heir to the powers..." The man continued.

The man knelt down to me and lifted my face up for a better view.

"You, my dear, are the true heir." he said.

I hit his hand off my face. His skin was the coldest thing, and it made me felt as if I was going to freeze at his touch.

I looked down at Hailey. Her face was turned pale and purple, and she was gagging for air.

"Release her." I said to the locket.

The locket suddenly stopped tightening and released Hailey's neck slowly.

It was insane. The locket actually listened to me.

The strange man stood up and smiled maliciously as he saw me successfully ordering the locket to release Hailey.

Hailey was finally able to breathe, but she immediately lost consciousness afterwards.

"Why... Why did the locket listen to me? What is this locket? What do you mean by me being the heir?" I gaped in terror, dropping my wand and backing away from the man.

"This is Salazar Slytherin's locket, my dear. It sees and makes people's worst fears come true. Just like you - you were able to predicted a tragic future and read your friend's darkest thoughts, secrets and fear..." The man said.

Salazar Slytherin's locket? I thought it was destroyed. How could Hailey get a hold of such an item?

"Tell me. If this locket does really listen to me - how do I turn back time?" I asked, looking at Hailey lying on the floor. I wanted her to forget everything about all the hatred and jealousy she had against me.

I wanted my friend back.

"Just command it. It's yours. You are the heir to everything that's left from me and the great Salazar Slytherin." The man said.

I pulled the locket off Hailey's neck and looked at it. Then, under my breath, I murmured the words 'Give me back my old life'.

Suddenly, in front of my eyes, everything was going backwards. Hailey standing up and walking backwards into the corridor, along with everyone else at Hogwarts walking backwards into the Great Hall for breakfast. The sun and the moon started swapping places, going backwards as well.

The bald, pale man with slits for noses was still standing there, in front of me.

"Time is turning back, my dear. And this time, just like you wanted, your friend will no longer know of any hatred towards you..." The man smirked.

Suddenly, the man slowly faded away.

"Who are you?" I asked before the man could disappeared completely.

"I'm dead, Julia. Killed by a Potter. I'm only a fragment of what's left in the locket..." He said.

And before he disappeared completely, he murmured some words loud enough for me to hear.

"I'm Lord Voldemort, Julia. And you are my great grand-daughter."
