Harry and myself made idle small talk while packing. We did make our plan, though. I would go down and get Hermione, and he would fight off Voldemort.
We packed our wands and his Cloak, which I would use to rescue Hermione, and then she would use to get the hell out. Then, I would stay and fight more Death Eaters. We wanted Voldemort as weak as possible for the Third Wizard War we all knew was going to happen. And soon.
I insisted on walking into Voldemort's castle, as he would just expect us to Appearate. Harry wanted to Appearate all the way, so we decided that we would Appearate just outside the castle, where I would put on the Cloak, and Harry would get ready for battle.
I grabbed Harry's arm and we Appearated. I felt that moment of being sucked through a tube, almost. But then it stopped and there we were, just outside of Voldemort's castle.
"Ready, Neville." I grab the door handle and open it when Harry screams in pain.
Behind him is Lord Voldemort, looking vicious and angry.
And Ginny Weasley, a defiant smile on her face.
"What are you doing here?" I was glad to see that both me and Harry were confused.
"What am I doing here? The same could be said for yourself. Roscoe is dead, by the way. "
"Who killed him?"
"Me." Ginny shrugs like this is no biggie.
"Ginny, why'd you do it?"
She lifts up her left sleeve. Yes, there it is. The Dark Mark. "My Lord? Should I touch it?"
Behind me, I feel Harry stifling sobs. This hurt me as well. Ginny and Ron, his soon-to-be wife and best friend, were the enemy. "Yes, Ginny. We need them all here to witness Harry's death."
Ginny reaches down and touches the Mark, smiling evilly at Harry.
While no one could see me, I put on the Cloak and ran inside. I took it off once inside, soon all the Death Eaters would be outside, and I had no use to go around invisible.
I run into Malfoy, who glares at me. Then glances back. "Neville!"
"Take me to the dungeons. I'm here to get Hermione out."
We were about halfway there when Malfoy felt himself being Summoned. "Take a left, then a right. Then go straight. You'll see it."
"Why are you telling me this?"
"Because I'm on your side. I'll do everything I can to get Harry out alive. Tell Hermione I love her." And with that, he was gone.
I took a left.
I took a right.
I went straight, and kept going that way.
Just when I was about to call what Malfoy told me off, I felt the atmosphere get cooler. The prison! I'd arrived!
I went down, until I saw a living prisoner.
The first one was Hermione!
"No, Hermione, it's me, Neville."
"What are you doing here?"
"Getting you out."
I pick the lock and open the door. "Come on! Harry might die out there!"
Her face goes even more pale.
"Harry? Is he okay?"
"No. You'll see it once you get out there. Now listen, no matter what happens, do not take off that Cloak, even if he dies, you keep that on. Okay?"
"Okay." She swings on the Cloak.
"Malfoy wanted me to tell you that he loves you."
She smiles slightly, and we move.
Once outside, we see that Harry is weakening. Death Eaters are swarming him by the hundreds. He can't hold on much longer. "Have you got your wand, Hermione?"
"No, Voldemort took it."
"Stay here, then."
I took off, going to help Harry.
I hear the words of the Killing Curse muttered, and turn just in time to see Harry crumple and fall.
Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived, has died.
I'm so sorry for killing Harry! I just felt that it needed to happen for plot development, and yes, I did cry. And thanks to hermione-granger for the evil plot twist, making Ginny a Death Eater was awesome!
I hope you guys are enjoying my story do far. I'm so sorry about the short chapters, my app keeps crashing so I can't really write long ones.
