Chapter 7

A/N: This "-" means that the scene has changed. There are a lot of scenes in the chapter, don't get lost! haha

They fell into cold water. It wasn't deep so they could feel the ground under them. Eleanor got up slowly and tried to look around, but it was too dark to see the place. She tried to search for the others but only found Ron.

"Ron? Where are the others? Where's Harry and Hermione?" Eleanor asked, worried. She couldn't see him, but she could feel his arm around her wrist. "Ron?"

"Shh," he said, and Eleanor couldn't help but debut if it was him or not. "We need to get out of the water and find them, but be quiet!" he said, and Eleanor confirmed that it was him. They walked away from the water and realized that they were in a forest.

"Are we in the Forbidden Forest?" Eleanor asked him. She pulled out her wand and casted the lumos spell. It wasn't the Forbidden Forest. They were lost. Suddenly, they heard footsteps getting closer to them. Eleanor stopped her wand's light and got closer to Ron. The moonlight showed them two men, holding a girl by the arms, she was unconscious. They were Death Eaters. Eleanor covered her mouth with her hands.

"There's someone in here," one of them said, posing his eyes where Eleanor and Ron were. The man was about to walk toward them when the other stopped him.

"We don't have time for bullshit. Let's go back to the Malfoy Manor," the man nodded and left.

"Oh my God!" Eleanor whispered, trying to don't freak out. "Why did Dumbledore send us here!? Where is my brother?! And my mum! Oh my god I saw her before we were gone from Dumbledore's office. She was bleeding!" Eleanor didn't stop the tears. Ron stared at her and hugged her.

"We'll find them. I promise you we will," Ron said and Eleanor nodded, wiping tears.

"Where are we?" Harry asked, pointing his lightly wand around. It was a dark and big room. There was gold inside it.

"We're at Gringotts, aren't we?" Delphini said, worried. Harry stared at her confused.

"Where is my sister and my friends?" he asked her, looking around. "Where is she!?"

"I have no idea! I'm as confused as you are, and don't you dare to blame me for all this!" Delphini warned him.

"I just want to find my sister and leave!" Harry yelled, walking around, but all he could see was gold and a diadem? "What's that?" Harry asked and Delphini followed his gaze.

"It's a diadem, isn't it obvious?" She said, sarcastic. Harry rolled his eyes. "Oh my god! That's it! It's the diadem! Take it!" Harry did as she said, and when his hand touched the diadem, everything started to move and to hit them. "Open the door! Open it now!"

"What are we doing in here?" Draco asked Hermione when they realized that they were at the Ministry. "Shouldn't we be with the others?" Hermione didn't answer. She was too busy trying to understand Dumbledore's book.

"What's a Horcrux?" she asked him. Draco stared at her and then held the book in his hands.

"It's when you split your soul in objects," Draco explained her, and Hermione couldn't help but feel scared.

"Who would do that?" she asked him, sarcastic.

"The Dark Lord, Granger," Draco said, looking around. "If you haven't noticed yet, Dumbledore sent us to find his horcruxes. He's getting weaker while You-Know-Who is getting stronger. He's back for good and he won't stop until he kills you all,"

"Then why are you here?" she asked him, upset. He was a purebloood, he didn't need to worry about him being chased by Voldemort.

"Because I've changed, and this new me wants to protect to you," Draco held her hand and stared deep in her eyes. He had beautiful eyes, just like Ha-

"Oh my god! WHERE ARE HARRY AND ELEANOR?!" She yelled, getting worried sick.

"I still don't get it…Why did Dumbledore split us? We're better working together than by pairs," Ron said, walking next to Eleanor.

"That's it! Maybe he needs us to find things in a faster way and what a better way than to split us?" Eleanor said, feeling a little bit optimistic.

"Yeah, maybe…But it would be better if we had a clue of what we're looking for, don't you think?" Ron said, annoyed.

"We will find it, we just need to focus and keep searching," she added. Eleanor was as exhausted as Ron was. They needed to rest but where? They didn't have a tent nor a blanket.

"What's that?" Ron asked her, picking something from the floor. "It's a feather,"

"It's a Phoenix's feather," Eleanor said, excited and she knew that they were going the right way. All of them were.

"What does it mean?" Ron asked her, curious. Eleanor didn't say anything and kept walking until she saw a small house.

"Follow me!" She told him, and once they got into the house they checked it and noticed that it's been empty for months. "We could stay here until tomorrow morning. I'll be on guard tonight," she said, and Ron nodded, leaving her awake in the middle of the night in a forest that she's never been before.

"Take it off!" Severus yelled to Albus. "Take it off now! It's cursed, and it could kill you in a blink of an eye!" Dumbledore nodded and took the ring off. His hand was black and so was the ring. "You knew it was cursed…Why did you touch it?"

"I wanted to see someone, Severus, and I knew its price," Dumbledore said, staring at his black hand and then to the floating ring. "Give it to Narcissa, she will know what to do," Severus nodded and left.
