Love, secrets, and potions

Chapter 40


Chapter 10.

"Harry!" Eleanor yelled when she saw her brother and ran to him, hugging him. "I was so worried! Are you okay?"

"Yes. Are you okay!?" he asked her, worried. She nodded and gave him one more hug before stepping back. Harry stared at the other four and smiled. Hermione couldn't hold it anymore and threw herself over him.

"Hey," Harry said, hugging her. "I'm okay, we all are okay," he tried to calm her down, and he made it. The girl stopped crying and stepped back.

"I'm sorry, I was so worried for you all," she said, standing next to him and looking around. Her eyes found Harry's and he gave her a warm smile. Draco rolled his eyes and looked away, finding his mom.

"Mom? What are you doing here?" he said, scared. Narcissa smiled at him and hugged him. "Are you okay?"

"Yes, I am. Are you okay?" Draco nodded, and Narcissa hugged him one more time. "I was telling your cousin that I need you all to ask for the Room of Requirement and please don't leave the room until one of us get to you. Can you promise me that?" they all nodded. "This is a war and Death Eaters don't have mercy, be careful and protect each other, doesn't matter what. Leave now before it's too late," she said, avoiding everybody's eyes but Draco's. She kissed him in the cheek and muttered an 'I love you'.

"Okay, guys, here's the plan," Harry said, walking to the others and forming a circle. "We're in the middle of a war and there's no time for arguing nor anything. We get to Hogwarts and we look for the Room of Requirement and then we're planning how to destroy the Horcruxes. Is it clear?" they nodded and grabbed hands, disappearing.

"Listen to me, Bellatrix," Voldemort said coldly to his follower. "if you see Harry or Eleanor Potter you bring them to me and same about the Mudblood and the redhead. You don't kill them until I say so," Bellatrix nodded and looked around.

"What about Severus Snape and the Mudblood mother, my lord? Can I kill them?" she asked, playfully.

"You can kill the Mudblood if you wish, but don't touch Severus," Voldemort said, playing with his wand.

"Yes, my lord," she said, and left the room with a laugh that could give chills to the bravest person.

"No one can see us," Harry said, when they got into the castle's lands. They nodded and hid behind the wall and looked around trying to find a safe entrance to the castle. Eleanor saw some Death Eaters in the front doors, so it wasn't an option. Hermione was next to Harry.

"Harry," she said in a whisper. "I-I'm scared," Harry turned to her and put a lock of hair behind her ear. Hermione gave him a shy smile.

"Everything is going to be okay. Trust me," she nodded and held his hand. Draco was next to Ron, watching the 'sweet' scene between them. He grabbed his wand and pointed Harry. Delphini saw it coming and tried to stop him but the curse hit him.

"Cruciatus!" the curse hit Harry's shoulder and fell to the ground. All of them stared at Draco and Hermione ran to him.

"What the hell is wrong with you?! We're in the middle of a war and you're casting curses like if it was nothing!" Hermione went mad and was about to hit him in the face when Harry's screams brought her back to reality. "Eleanor! Watch around and tell me if someone's coming here!" she ran to Harry and casted some spells to stop the pain. His screams could bring Death Eaters around and that wouldn't be good.

"Harry, I know it hurts, but please stop screaming. They're going to catch us," Hermione said with tears in her eyes. Ron went to Draco.

"GET OUT OF HERE," Draco stared at him and the girls, and then ran away. Delphini was about to follow him, but she couldn't. Three Death Eaters were coming their way.

"Guys," Eleanor said, getting closer to Hermione and Harry. "We've got company," the Death Eaters laughed and one of them spoke.

"Well, well, well," he said, walking toward Delphini. "look what we've got here!" he raised his hand and was about to put it over the girl's cheek when Ron grabbed her wrist and took her with the others. The Death Eater stared at him.

"Are you scared?" another Death Eater asked them. Hermione and Eleanor shared a look.

"The Dark Lord wants you all," the Death Eaters were surrounding them, while taking their wands out.

Hermione grabbed Harry's hand while grabbing Ron and Eleanor's hands. Ron didn't realize what she was trying to do until Delphini grabbed his hand. All of them were holding hands. Hermione closed her eyes.

"Stop them! They're trying to disappear!" the Death Eater screamed but it was too late. Harry, Hermione, Eleanor, Delphini and Ron were gone.

"I told you to hex them as soon as we saw them!" one of the Death Eaters yelled, hexing some students that were trying to escape.

"Don't worry," said the Death Eater next to him. "I'll get them, and I'll bring them to him," he said, leaving them and getting into the castle.

"We need to take Harry to the nursery!" Eleanor yelled, once inside the castle. It was a mess; the paintings were in the floor and some walls were as ruined as the windows. "Let's go this way," she said, and all of them followed her. Someone grabbed her hand. It was a Death Eater. She opened her eyes in shock while trying to escape.

"Don't be silly," he said, and Eleanor knew that voice, but how? "I'm not going to hurt you," Eleanor was about to freak out when Hermione noticed what was happening. The girl took her wand out and was about to hex him when he took his mask off.

James Potter was standing in front of them.

And again, I'm so sorry for taking so long! I had to quit my job, so now I'm gonna do my best and update at least twice or three times a week.
