A Secret is Meant to be Kept

When Ron lashes out at Hermione and gets them into a sticky situation, Hermione transports herself back in time. But the Marauders Era was a bit farther than she expected. She must figure out how to reverse the spell, deal with falling in love all over again and fight against some of the most notorious Death Eaters, who are inside the castle's walls. Not as intruders, but as classmates.

44. You Can't Delay It

"Hermione!  Hermione!"  He yelled, as he ran towards the house.  "Hermione?!  Lily!!! Carressa!!!! James!!!!! Remus!!!"  He ran as fast as he could, and barreled through the front door, and stopped dead on his tracks as he saw a wand at each of the neck's of his friends.  

"Happy Christmas Eve, Sirius!" Said a high-pitched, cynical, cackling voice.  "Great time to be with family! Eh?"  Said the laughing voice of Bellatrix Lestrange, as she stepped behind him, and put her wand to his neck.

"Happy Christmas Eve, Bella." He sneered.  "I didn't think I was still considered family?"

"Aww.  Poor Sirius, disowned by his mummy?" She taunted.  "And what about you, Carressa?!" She said, yanking Sirius in her direction.  "I know our, last encounter, didn't go as well as I had hoped."  She said as she watched Carressa being restrained from tearing her head off.  

"Happy. Christmas." She coughed.  "But a bitch like you will be spending it alone, I suppose." She got out.

"Excuse me?!" She said, giving her the look of death, as the grip on Carressa was visible tightened, she threw Sirius on the ground, and as he gasped for air, she approached her.  "Need I remind you, Ms. Aislin.  I. Own. You." She said, whispering in her ear.  "You're in my control now dear, and that kind of language will not be tolerated from you!" She giggled.

"Bitch." She said, elbowing the man holding her in the face, and putting him in a body bind.  "Petrificus Totalus." She said with a breeze, happy to be free.  As she turned around, Bellatrix had her wand pointed at Carressa's nose.  

"Well, look what we have here?!" She laughed. 

"What do we have here?  A bitch crying out for mercy." She retorted.

"Quite the opposite, my dear."

"Oh really?" She said, and as she pointed the wand at Bellatrix's stomach, she spoke. "Crucio." Bellatrix crumpled to the ground, in pain.

Hermione was standing in the back corner of the room, being held by the strange black-haired man, just as she had last time.  Before she knew it, Sirius had appeared in front of her, attempting to set her free.

"I don't need your help! I'm not as much of a coward as you think I am!" She shouted.

"I don't think you're a coward!  I'm just trying to help!" He pleaded with her.

"Well don't!" She said, turning on the man holding her, stupefying him, with a flick of her wand.  "Move, unless you want to end up like him!" She yelled.  She shot jinxes at each of the people restraining her friends, setting each of them free in record time, the only one still conscious, being Bellatrix.  Hermione was amazed, yet a bit upset at Carressa's lack of hesitation to torture Bellatrix, even though Hermione had done it before.  She thought she had a reason, an excuse, but it all still felt so wrong in her mind.  She used a counter-curse, breaking the Cruciatus curse being used in Bellatrix, long enough to put her into a full body-bind, just before knocking her out.

"Grab your things, we have to go.  Now."  She said, running to get her possessions.  She did feel bad that all of Lily's hard work had been a waste, but not for too long, they would be back, safe this time.  As soon as they all had their things, Hermione transported each of the Death Eater's to a different place, stalling them for a while, and hopefully, sparing some of those in Godric's Hollow.  Hermione double checked all was in order, and they exited the home, off to devise a new plan.  

"Where do we go now?" Asked James.

"There's nowhere left to go.  They are going to find you anywhere you go.  A battle will happen, and you can't change that, and delaying it doesn't benefit anyone." A voice said from behind them.  Each turned upon the owner of the voice, extending their wands.  "They will be back.  You have nowhere to hide.  He's back." Spoke the voice.  The only thing returned were 6 awestruck expressions.  All surprised to see the face once again.  Bailey.
