8. Year One-Chapter Eight
I fell to my feet.I was trying to be as quiet as possible following Quirrell.I stopped once he did.His head turned different ways before stopping he spun and turned to me."Tiger Lily Potter."He smirked.His stutter was gone.I nodded.He grabbed me and pulled me to him forcing me to walk.
"Will you shut up!"He yelled throwing me to the ground as we got to the room holding the stone."Foolish girl."He muttered."I'm less foolish than you."I say."Allowing Voldemort to rest on your head.Honestly.You're foolish."I say."Look into the mirror."I stood up and did as told.I smiled slightly as I saw my parents."Beautiful."My dad complimented placing his hand on my shoulder.I smiled."What,What do you see?" "My parents."I answer truthfully.My mom places a finger to her lips and hands mirror my the stone.Mirror me winks and placed it in the pocket of my jeans.She winks as well as dad and mom.They all place a finger to their lips.I hesitantly feel my pocket."Oh."I whisper,then the reflection changed."What!What now?" "I'm with my closest friends,happy,but a bruise is planted on my cheek."I say and just as I say that his hand came in contact with my face.I fell grabbing my cheek.I heard a yelp and looked to see my brother grasping his scar."You!"He said."No it..it can't be.Snape,he was the one."Harry said staring at Quirrell.
I watched as mirror me removed the stone from my pocket and handed it to mirror Harry.The reflection winked at Harry.I knew it was there but had to make sure that it was gone from me.My cheek was blistering and it hurt to talk so I've been standing hastily behind Harry.He gasped."What!What is it?"Quirrell asked."I'm shaking hands with Dumbledore.I've won the house cup."Harry said making up a quick lie."He lies!"I heard Voldemort's raspy voice.I jumped and closed my eyes hoping this would all be a bad dream."Let me speak to him." "Master.You're not strong enough." "I've got strength enough for this."Quirrell unwrapped his turba and turned his back to us revealing Voldemort's face."Harry we meet again."I winced."Tiger,for the irst time I see what everyone speaks about unnatural beauty."I stare at him."I''ve heard it around the forest."I nodded."Voldemort."Harry says stopping him before anything."Yes,You see what I have become? See what I must do to survive? Live off another. A mere parasite. Unicorn blood can sustain me, but it cannot give me a body of my own. But there is something that can. Something, that conveniently enough, lies in your pocket!"Harry and I turn to run."Stop them!"Voldemort runs right before fire spreads in a circle."Don't be fools! Why suffer a horrific death when you can join me and live?!" "Never!"We shout out in unison."Haha. Bravery. Your parents had it too. Tell me, Harry,Tiger, would you like to see your mother and father again? Together, we can bring them back."He said as our parents show up in the mirror.I held back a whimper."All I ask for is something in return."Harry removed the stone from his pocket.I gave him a 'don't do it' face."That's it, Harry. There is no good and evil. There is only power, and those too weak to seek it. Together, we'll do extraordinary things. Just give me the stone!"I looked in the mirror our parents had vanished."Liar!"I yell out and grab the stone from Harry."Kill them!"Voldemort yelled.Quirrell soars into the air and smashed into me, one hand on my throat. We fell to the steps. The stone fell out of my reach as Quirrell choked me.I strain and squeak.I place a hand on Quirrell's hand, trying to get him off. Smoke furls from under my hand.He pulled back "What is this magic?"He hand fell to ash."You fool get the stone."Harry walked over placing both his hands on Quirrell's face.Quirrell backed up, then his face, which is horrendously burned, crumbles as he walks forward. His whole body is ash. He falls to the floor. Harry gasps. He looks at his own hands and hurries over to me and the stone. He picks it up and sighs,Our ears perk at a noise.We slowly trn to see a dust clouds with Voldemort's face. The cloud rushes forward, running through Harry and I knocking us both back down.I let out a scream as I land on my blistering,bruising cheek.
