10. The Forbidden Forest
I led everyone to the clearing and told them to cover their mouths. As we entered the open they first saw Voldemort. His snake like face and flat nose stood out a mile off. We watched the memory in silence. The forest was dark and cold and the circle of Death Eaters were looking scared. Many minutes passed before another sound was made. I heard the kids gasped as a green light engulfed us and we began spinning again.
Once back in the burrow, I asked again if they understood. Again they did. So I began.
"When we enter this memory you are to understand that some of my decisions may seem radical in the present light, however they were both necessary and heroic at that time. This memory is mine from when I had just been killed. A Death Eater called Narcissa Lestrange lied to the Dark Lord telling him I was dead. She carried me to the castle knowing full well that I would probably kill Voldemort. Her actions were heroic but I did not survive by chance." I paused. "I lived because Voldemort had created a horcrux in me. When he killed me he killed the horcrux. This means that I can now kill him forever or he can kill me. You now of the prophecy?"
"Yes," the others answered.
" Well," I continued. "Shall we enter the memory?"
