"Voldemort knows Bell....." Belladonna lay motionless in Harry's arms. How did he know? Bellas mind went blank, she couldnt think of anything, what was there to think about. She had been cast out by her own father and Voldemort knew about Loretta. "Harry." Bella muttered in a hushed tone
"Yes?" she looked up and into Harrys eyes,
"......take me away.." Harry hugged Bella and looked up promptly when he heard his name being boomed by Dumbledore. "Harry and Belladonna, Voldemort knows that the baby is to be taken to the Weasleys so I have made the decision to move her to the house of the order." Bella nodded and then gazed out beyond Dumbledore and to Loretta who was gurgling in Mollys arms.
"Teeellll meeeee Lucious......How could you not know your own child was pregnant let alone with Harry Potter." Voldemort had made his way to the Malfoys as soon as he heard the news. Nobody knew how he had found out, but he had and somebody had to pay the price. "My ......m.......my Lord..........I was deceived as long as you have bbeeen and I have reason to believe that Dumbledore aided my.....the girl."
"My lord." Narcissas calm voice broke the hostile air that was lingering around the conversation. Narcissa was heartbroken since Bella had been forced out by Lucious and was finding it difficult to not confess about her part that she had played. "what may I ask are your intentions?" Voldemort glared at Narcissa and then sat down with Nagini by his side.
"I contemplated killing the child, just as my intentions had been for Harry Potter..But then I thought.....why kill what could be useful to me." Narcissas heart began pounding. "I am going to find and keep the child...BUT..Belladonna shall answer to what she has done." A small tear fell from Narcissas eye, and Lucious looked at his wife out of the corner of his eye to make sure she didnt try to do anything stupid. "now death....its almost the easy way out hahaha no no no i will not kill Belladonna. I will cause her the greatest pain that she will ever know. I will take her baby right from her...and I will watch her heart break in complete satisfaction. Tell me Narcissa whats it like to loose a child.." Narcissa couldnt stop the tears, nothing pained her more than knowing how much pain her child would be in. "Narcissa Malfoy I want you to take the child away from her and hand it to me."
".....................yes.....my lord." Voldemort glared at Lucious and Narcissa and snarled "I will be back." Voldemort vanished leaving Narcissa and Lucious. "Lucious!"
"I.....I cant do that she....shes my baby....I can't hurt her like that!" Lucious for the first time since he had kicked Bella out looked devastated. Deep down Lucious had lost the will to live. He missed his only daughter more than anything but he knew that for the safety of his own family he had to act as though he wanted nothing to do with his daughter. But for some reason watching the love of his life crumble before him caused his heart to crumble along with the anger he had towards Bella. Lucious grabbed Narcissa and engulfed her in his arms. She wrapped her arms around his waist and cried onto his chest as Lucious wept with his chin resting on her head. "I know baby, I know."
"Sirius? How comes your not on the family tree on the wall?" asked Bella as she put Lorettas stuff down in the room.
"It doesnt matter...." Sirius smiled and left Bella alone to settle Loretta. Harry then walked in and looked down at Loretta who was being tucked in. "Is she safe harry?" Harry held Bella and whispered, "I don't know any more."
"HARRY BELLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" There was a loud crash in the kitchen and shouts and screams began to surface above the loud crashing noises. Suddenly Voldemort appeared face to face with Bella and Harry. "Hello Belladonna.....Malfoy." Bellas heart was beating faster by the second. "I just came to collect a certain someone. " Voldemort looked over Bellas shoulder and into the crib, where despite all the loud noise Loretta was sleeping peacefully. Bella staggered slowly backwards towards the crib, "P....p..p...please my lord.....not...not..."
"SILENCE! be greatfull it isn't your life that I am taking!" At the door Lucious was standing holding his wand at each member of the order all of whom knew not to make an attempt to save Loretta. Narcissa passed by Lucious and moved towards Bella. Light tears began to roll down Bellas face. "Now." Voldemort hissed. Bella stood motionless as she watched her mother pick up Loretta and pass her over to the dark lord. Once safe in voldemorts arms, the dark lord disappeared leaving the order, Bella,Harry, Lucious and Narcissa standing in what felt like years of silence. Narcissa turned and held her daughter, they both still in each others collapsed and sat on the floor sobbing. Then finally Narcissa broke the silence, "Im...so..so sorry"
