I began to question Ron as to who he sent to fetch Harry, Hagrid had gone, I knew that much. I think he sent Bill and Charlie too, at least I knew he was in good hands, I just hoped that the people who were holding him didn't put up too much of a fight. We weren't to know when they got him or if they'd get in any trouble, they reckoned they'd be about an hour, and that's all we had to go by. It had already been half an hour, and we'd heard nothing. I had everything crossed, as did everyone else.
After another 15 minutes Bill appeared back on his own, asking for back up, and me. This terrified me, I was excited as I'd get to see Harry, but what did they want with me? Me, Kingsley and a large group of others apparated together from Hogsmeade to Borgin and Burkes, I'd forgotten how cold and unwelcoming Knockturn alley was. Bill told everyone but I to wait outside, and he lead me through the front door and down a set of rickety stair cases, into a small dark room, we went through another door, and I saw a sight I hoped I'd never witness. Harry was bound to a pole in the middle of the room with ropes, he had a piece of cloth stuffed in his mouth and he looked a state. The pure shock of what I could see sent me straight into tears again, there much have been about 10 or 15 'death eaters' surrounding him. Charlie and Hagrid were stood either side of Harry, when I walked through the door he pulled the cloth out of his mouth, so Harry could actually talk. He smiled when he saw me, this made me smile in turn, and for a moment I forgot about the situation, until I looked up and remembered the situation we happened to be in. I didn't know any of the 'death eaters' that were there, and certainly none of them had been mentioned by Zabini, unless they were relatives of the Carrows and Blacks. One large, intimidating man was staring at me grinning, this was soon followed by a deep booming voice speaking to the rest of the room, completely objectifying me as of I wasn't there. "We have what we wanted men, we have the pretty girl, you may take Potter, in return for the fitty, we'll return her, when we're done" this was followed by a cackling and approving nodding from the other men, Harry looked purely horrified and it clearly wasn't what Bill, Hagrid and Charlie thought I was wanted for. I was now so confused and shaking to such an extent, even though I still had my wand on me, I was in no fit state to perform magic. Hagrid looked outraged as if he was about floor the whole lot of them, and as for Bill and Charlie, I've never seen brothers look so protective, I may be very nearly 18 but I was still their little sister, however intimidating this man was, he had said that in the wrong company.
That's when Bill shouted, 'NOW' and all of the backup Bill had dragged along charged into the room, wands raised, each taking on an individual. Within no time, all were on the floor, in the capable hands of Hagrid. I accioed Harry's wand and released him, handed him his wand as he collapsed into my arms. I didn't know what to do, but before I could even think Ron grabbed hold of both me and Harry and apparated straight to Hogsmeade, Mum and Hermione were waiting for us and helped both me and Harry up to the castle, while Ron was on lookout with his wand.
It turned out Harry wasn't in the finest of ways, he didn't look like he'd eaten much in the time he's been missing, he was dirty and his clothes were torn. But he was safe now, we had him back. Madam Pomfrey came back to Hogwarts especially to attend to him. She gave him some sleeping potion in order for a bit of undisturbed rest, and to aid his minor wounds' recovery. She then gave me a vile of potion claiming it would calm me down. I was still shaking and shocked into silence. I didn't know what to say or how to deal with the whole situation, fortunately I couldn't have been in better company. When Ron told mum what had happened (they could even hear the voice from outside!) I've never seen her so outraged, I think if she could, she would personally kill that man outright. We nervously waited for the others to return. Night fell and still no one returned, I tried to get some sleep, however even though Harry was back and safe, no matter how hard I tried, I still couldn't sleep, I was worried about the others and traumatised about how I had been spoken about and objectified. We were safe now, but the rest of my family were still out there, there was no way I could sleep knowing that.
