Love, secrets, and potions

Chapter 21

Chapter 21.

"It's time," the blonde girl said, standing up from her bed. "No one will notice it until tomorrow morning." She made her way to the Gryffindor common room.

"Are you sure?" a voice inside her head asked. She nodded and checked her arm. Her dark mark was burning. She had to do this, for her father and mother. They needed her. "What about Narcissa? She can help me" She thought. Then she remembered her mother's words; No one can know, Delphi. It's yours and only yours mission.

She moved to the boy's room and searched for Harry. He was sleeping and she couldn't help but notice his nice and long eyelashes.

"Imperius!" Delphini casted the curse to Harry. The boy opened his beautiful eyes and stared at her. She left the room and Harry followed her. Once in the common room, Delphini noticed that they weren't alone. Eleanor was holding a glass of water in the stairs.

"Harry!" The girl screamed, walking towards her brother. She knew that something was wrong. "What are you doing here!?" she asked, turning to Delphini.

"Go away! I don't have time for this!" Delphini yelled, and Eleanor took her wand out.

"I won't ask twice!" Eleanor yelled at her, pointing her with her wand. "Expell-" Harry stopped her. Delphini ordered him to shut up his sister. Delphini knew that after casting the curse she had some minutes before the Headmaster or someone else got there, so she hurried up and took the Potter siblings out of the common room.

She was scared, she was just a 11 years old girl, but she wanted revenge and revenge was powerful. It could blind people. She got to the Astronomy Tower and saw some Death Eaters.

"Good evening," Lucius Malfoy greeted her. Delphini smiled and waved him. "What is she doing here?" Harry was holding his sister in his arms.

"I can take care of her, ya know?" She turned to find Fenrir Greyback smiling.

"Of course not!" Delphini yelled. She hated him. "Let's go before it's too late." The Death Eaters nodded and some of them took Harry and Eleanor, disappearing.

"Lucius!" Lucius Malfoy heard his wife's voice and turned to face her. "What are you doing here?! What's happening?!"

"Narcissa, I can't tell you." He said, coldly. Narcissa stared at where Delphini was.

"What have you done!? I'm the one in charge!" She said, upset. She was confused, actually.

"It's time, aunt," The blonde girl said, smiling and pointing at the dark sky. She saw The Dark Mark in the sky and covered her mouth.

"What are you talking about!? I have to protect you!"

"Go and check on Harry. See you later, auntie." Delphini said, and she disappeared.

"Take care and protect Draco," Lucius said, and disappeared. Narcissa ran to the Gryffindor common room and went to the boy's room. She reached for Harry, but he wasn't there. She went to the girl's room and couldn't find Eleanor. She took them. Narcissa thought.


Narcissa, Lily and Severus were in front of Albus Dumbledore. He called them to a private meeting.

"Why are we here, Headmaster?" Snape asked him, serious. He was mad at Lily and he wanted to sleep.

"Delphini and the Death Eaters kidnapped Eleanor and Harry," Albus said, staring at Lily and then to Severus. The woman was in shock.

"Delphini? The new Slytherin girl?" Snape asked, worried. His daughter was in danger. Narcissa stared at them and covered her face.

"Tell them, Narcissa," Dumbledore said, and Narcissa nodded slowly. "Tell them what you told me."

"Delphini Riddle is Voldemort's daughter," Narcissa said, nervous. She was betraying the Dark Lord. She was going to pay for it. She knew that. "She kidnapped your children." Lily stepped back and turned to see Narcissa.

"You!" Lily yelled. "It's your fault!" She was going to hit Narcissa, so Severus grabbed her wrists and held her.

"It's not her fault, Lily," Dumbledore said, slowly. "Narcissa is here to protect them."

"I bloody know that, Dumbledore!" Lily said, trying to control herself. "We need to rescue them!"

"And we will," Severus said, coldly. "Cissy, I want you to stay here. It's too dangerous for you to come with us."

"Where are you going?!" Narcissa asked him, worried.

"To rescue my daughter," Severus said, taking Lily's hand and disappearing.

"That's why you wanted me to protect them, right?" Narcissa asked, shocked. Dumbledore nodded.
