Love, secrets, and potions

Chapter 38


Chapter 8.

"Oh my god!" Delphini yelled when they left the dark and small room. "We were at my mom's chamber!" Harry gave her an annoying glance and started to walk away, slowly.

"If you don't want them to catch us, pretend that we're just visiting," Harry said, sharply. Delphini was walking next to him now.

"It's impossible to pretend that when your eyebrow is bleeding and our clothes are dirty. We have less than 5 minutes to be found, so think of a plan now!" She yelled, and looked around. Some people were staring at them. "Shit! They know it!" Delphini yelled again and grabbed Harry's hand. They ran through the corridors as the guards were called. They were screwed.

"Pull yourself together, Hermione, it's not like we're at the castle. We are at the ministry and that's what I wanted to tell you back in the castle…I knew what Dumbledore was up to…He wants us to find those Horcruxes so he can destroy him,"

"And how are we gonna find them? I have no idea of what they look like," Hermione said, scared. "What if we don't make it? And where are the others? I can't really focus knowing that they are in danger,"

"They are not. We've been split in pairs and we will meet again once we've got what Dumbledore indicated us," Draco said, putting Hermione's hair behind her ear. She gave him a shy smile. "And there," Draco said, whispering. "is our first Horcrux," he pointed to a woman dressed in pink.

"Her necklace?" Hermione asked him, confused.

"The necklace," he repeated, thinking about how to take it away from her without being noticed.

"If we only had Harry's coat," Hermione said, sad. Draco stared at her and smiled. "Did I say something funny?"

"I was going to steal his coat, but I didn't have the chance," Hermione rolled her eyes. "Let's just pretend that we are innocent kids and let's get that necklace."

"I swear to you! I saw something shinning! It was a silver light coming out from those trees over there!" Eleanor pointed to trees that were near them and Ron stepped forward.

"Was it a Patronus?" Ron asked her, while Eleanor was following him.

"Maybe…I don't know," they found a lake. "Maybe it was just a…"

"THE GRYFFINDOR SWORD!" Ron screamed, pointing at the lake. Eleanor stared at it and smiled.

"That's what Dumbledore wanted us to find?!" she said, excited. Ron was getting into the lake when a bang stopped him. Three Death Eaters were in front of them. Ron grabbed Eleanor's hand and took her to the lake with him. One of the Death Eaters yelled the cruciatus curse and almost hit Eleanor by inches.

Ron dragged Eleanor to the deepest of the lake. There was the sword, waiting for them. It was dark and dirty. A piece of seaweed grabbed onto Eleanor's ankle and she couldn't help but desperate about it. Ron did his best to go and get the sword. Eleanor pulled her wand out when she saw someone swimming towards them.

"Stupefy!" Eleanor casted, but the Death Eater was faster and blocked it. "Ron!" Eleanor tried to say, but the water was getting colder and deeper. Ron left her to get the sword and when he touched it, he stretched out his hand to get hers when everything went black.

"Stupefy!" Harry yelled, to one of the goblins. Delphini was running behind him, she was trying to stop the rest of the goblins from cursing them. "It's impossible to break into Gringotts! We need plan B NOW!"

"I know!" Delphini yelled back. She was as scared as he was, but they couldn't admit it now. Not when half of the goblins and guards were there.

"Cruccio!" A goblin yelled and the curse hit Delphini. She fell to the ground. Harry turned to see her, and his heart stopped. She was screaming and crying. His blood burned.

"Expelliarmus!" He casted and the goblin's wand flew through the air.

"How dare you to take a goblin's wand!? Cruccio!" Another goblin said, and Harry tried to block it, but he couldn't. He fell to the ground. "What are you doing here, Harry potter!? Were you trying to steal from us?!" The goblin was standing in front of them. "Answer me!" Harry tried to avoid the burning sensation and pressed the diadem against his chest under him. "Cruccio!" Harry screamed in pain and that was when the diadem hurt him, it was burning him. He didn't know what was going on. All he could do was look into Delphini's watery eyes and shook his head slowly. "If Harry Potter does not tell the truth, I'll hex him until madness!" Harry pressed the diadem under him once again and muttered "Hogwarts,"

"I saw her this way!" Hermione whispered, hiding behind a wall next to Draco. "We will wait for her in her office,"

"No way," Draco said, staring at her. Hermione rolled her eyes.

"Do you have a better plan? Because right now is not the moment to discuss!" Draco gave her a death glare and nodded. They got into the pink woman's office in a furtive way and luckily no one noticed them. Hermione opened the door and got in, followed by Draco.

"We made it!" Hermione said, excited and hugged him. They have been together for an entire day and it made her nervous, but now all she needed was to hug someone and express how anxious she's been…She hadn't seen her friends and she didn't know where they were nor even knew if they were alright or not. When she noticed it, she was crying.

"Granger," Draco said, stepping back to see her face. "Are you alright?" Hermione didn't answer him. They stared into each other's eyes until Draco stepped forward and his face was inches apart from hers. She closed her eyes, and she was expecting him to kiss her lips, but he didn't. He put each of his hands in both cheeks and kissed her temple. They stayed like that until a bang set them apart. They looked around to find a girl and a boy lying on the floor. They were wet and pale. Hermione looked closer and then threw herself over them.

"Ron! Eleanor!"
