So, you know how times are getting darker around the Wizarding World? Well, they are, and Voldemort is rising, but little did I know today was going to happen....
"Hey Jasmine!" I look over at Sirius and smile,
"Hey, Padfoot!" I hug him. He became stiff, and when I let go he visually relaxed. "Uh, is everything okay? Padfoot?" he nods.
"So, Snowy, you know how the first Hogsmead trip is October 10?" I nod.
"Well, I was wondering if you wanted to, um.. go with me?" I laugh
"Pads, you, Prongs, Moony, Wormtail and I always go together."
He sighs. "I meant...Yeah sorry, I forgot," and laughs, almost fake.
"Are you sure you're okay?"
He gulps, and nods. I bite my lip and laugh,
"Sure, I would love to Padfoot, even though we go as a group." He smiles and nods.
I roll my eyes, "Well, it's about time for lunch, and it's the weekend, so want to come with me?" He nods. We meet up with James, and he has a knowing look.
We are all sitting, joking around, when the mail comes.
A letter with the Ministry of Magic symbol drops right in front of me. I grab it before anybody else could. I went pale as I began to read.
Dear, Jasmine and James Potter
We are very sad to inform you that your father, Charles Potter, has been killed two nights from the following. We liked to say he was a very great man, and we are sad to hear about his death during the rising of You- Know- Who.
Hoping you are well,
The Minister of Magic.
I throw the letter down and run out the Great Hall. I go to the Common Room, and went to James room. I grabbed the invisibility cloak, and ran.
When then cloak was over me, and I knew nobody would run in to me. I cried, and cried, and cried.
How could this of happened?
We were in the Great Hall for lunch, and a note fell in front of Jasmine, she read it and ran out. I sat there in shock, it left me, and I went to run out to look for Jasmine.
A hand gripping my shoulder stopped me, I look at Sirius.
"What the hell, mate?" he shook his head wide eyed. "Just read the letter James." I read it, and I felt like throwing up. My own father is gone, and I didn't even get to say goodbye.
I ran to the common room to look for Jasmine, I discovered she took my cloak. "Well, we could use the map?" I send a grateful look to Moony and grab it.
We just finished the map a couple of days ago, and it was amazing. I tapped my wand on the parchment and said "I solemnly swear I am up to no good." I look for Jasmine's name, and in a few seconds I find it.
I give Sirius and Remus a look and they follow me to the Black Lake. We hear sobs as we get to the tree, I reach out and take the cloak off. "Jas?" I croak out. She looks up puffy and red eyed.
"H-he's gone James," and she starts crying again. I sat next to her, she cuddles up next to me. "We didn't even get to say goodbye James!" she sobs into my shirt. I let a few tears out too.
We sat in comfortable silence for a few minutes, one of us sniffling ever other second. "What are we gonna do without him?" I look at Jasmine.
"He would want us to keep moving up, he loves us, and wouldn't want to us to waste a day of our life's crying over him." She smiles and laughs.
"He would wouldn't he?" I nod.
"Now, come on, you must be tired." I nod and yawn to answer his question. He chuckles and picks me up. We get to the Common Room, I mumble, "The new password is 'Muggle'," he laughs.
Once we enter the room, he puts me on the couch and everyone is sitting there.
They are only here because they feel sorry for you.
I ignore the voice, and I hug Lily.
"I'm sorry for your loss," she whispers, I nod my head and sit down. Everyone goes in to a conversation, even James.
He has always been good at masking his feelings.
Me, not so much; if something bad happens I break down and shut everyone out, it's just my thing.
Maybe that's why James has always been the golden child?
Anger fills up inside me, he must not even be masking his feelings! He probably couldn't care less! How could he? Tears sting in my eyes, half sadness half anger. I storm out of the room and walk to the astronomy tower as they started to laugh at a joke.
I sit down and look at the sky "Why did you have to leave dad? We need you, times are getting dark. I know it was your time to go, but I can't help but wish you we here. J-Just promise me you will always look out for me, James, and mom?" I hear foot steps and I go to the window ledge.
No, I'm not going to jump, I'm climbing to the roof. "Where is she Padfoot?" I hear James ask Sirius.
"Maybe she ran...We left the map back at Gryffindor. You should go look around the Shrieking Shack and the Lake." I hear footsteps and knew James left.
"Jasmine, were are you? Can you please come out?" I get down slowly and stand in front of him. He wipes a tear off my cheek.
"Why did you leave?" I shrug.
"Maybe because you don't care."I glare at the ground.
"What do you mean Jas?" I laugh bitterly.
"You don't care my fathers dead, or that I'm upset by it, you aren't sad." He looks shocked.
"I do care! I know what you are feeling Snow, just don't shut us out." I glare.
"You have no idea what I'm feeling! My dad is dead! Yours is alive and healthy, so don't say you know what I'm feeling, because you don't!" I snarl.
After I screamed, his next actions shocked me.
He hugged me.
"Jasmine, please don't talk like that, you are just angry and upset. Just calm down, and then we can talk, okay?" My anger just disappears after he hugs me, I nod, we sit down on the ground in comfortable silence.
"Sirius, I miss him," I say, breaking the silence. He looks up at me and smiles sadly.
"So do I, but we can't be upset that we don't have anymore time with him. We should smile about how we did have memories with him at least."
I nod and lay my head on his shoulder "Sirius, you're really good at this."
He chuckles lightly. "At what?"
I look up at him. "Comforting people. I'm surprised you haven't got a girlfriend."
He stares at me for a moment, and shakes his head.
"I just haven't met the right girl." I sigh.
"Try to get a girlfriend that is real, and doesn't just like you for your looks, but your personality and looks." Hesmiles softly.
"Do you like my personality?" I raise an eyebrow.
"Of course I do, you're my best mate. I mean the player title is a throw off, but other than that your alright." He rolls his eyes and smiles.
We get up and walk to the Common Room. I smile at everyone when I walked in. They all gave me pity smiles. I hate pity.
I go upstairs to sleep and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.
When I fall asleep, I have a dream. I look around and see a girl..... She looks like me, but older, and then the guy in a cloak, the same guy I saw from my vision with Lily.
"Where is she?" My older self laughs, evilly almost.
"Who, my daughter?" I snap at him.
"Don't act foolish with me little girl! You know where she is! You know she has the power to destroy me! Tell me where she is or I will kill you!"
Cloak man snarls.
"Is that a threat?" I ask, raising my eyebrow. Even by the dream, I can tell the cloak man is important; evil, but still important.
"Think of it as a promise." He raises his wand to my neck. "Now tell me where your daughter is or I swear you will be dead in the next second."
My future self starts to cry "You think I know!? I left her! She was just a baby, I left her with somebody and I don't know where they are!" I pause for a second, "And would you really think I would tell you?!" I start to snarl. "You out of all people? The person who would kill her in a second? THE PERSON I LEFT MY DAUGHTER TO KEEP SAFE?!" I scream the last part, not out of anger, but out of desperation, and sadness.
The cloak man clicks his tongue. "Such a pity, to waste blood like yours." He pauses, "To think I almost cared about what you said..." he trails off, even though it was a dream I shivered knowing it might not end well.
"Well, I guess you must die, if only you fought for the right side. Any last words?" he laughs. I nod.
"I just wanted to say, I'm fighting for the right side, I know my side will win. Even if I'm not there to see it. People die in war all the time, what makes you think my death will be any different, you think my friends and family will just break down because I'm dead? Well, your wrong, of anything they will fight harder, and stronger, so my death wasn't in vain, so my death is reason to win the war."
The man pauses for a second. "You have a smart mind Miss Potter, but you're still a foolish girl to think your side will win." I roll my eyes.
"You are just a man eager for power, you're scared." He laughs.
"I'm not afraid of anything."
"I don't think that's true." He gives me a look to go on, "You have been living your life without an identity, powerless, I bet you were even bullied." I pause to look at his reaction, and then continue, "You want power so bad, you will kill anyone in your way to stop them, even if they were family. You scared to be powerless....To be defeated."
He doesn't respond, he just raises his wand. I know what he is going to do, but in the back of my mind I'm hoping he isn't. "Such a shame to lose someone with powers like yours....AVADA KEDAVRA!"
I wake up in a cold sweat, breathing unevenly. The first thought to come to my wind was; What was that?
