Chapter 20 – Sister Versus Sister
Harry was feeling better by the day. He knew that his treatment only had a couple of weeks left. The group that decided to stay in the castle for the summer holiday decided to have a picnic. Ginny and Luna had graduated with passing grades. Ginny went to Poppy not long after and was impregnated with Harry and Draco's sperm. With a little luck, she would be giving birth on January first. She was delighted that she would be able to give birth on the first day of the upcoming new year. They were all sitting down and eating and chatting. Sybil Trelawney had been a minor inconvenience when it came time to tell the old fraud that she had to move. She was furious that she was being replaced by someone younger. Harry told her that she would always be asked to sit in as a substitute when Luna was ill or unable to fulfill her duties.
"What are you fussing about Sybil?" asked Harry. "You get to retire and still draw a paycheck. It isn't like you are going far. Hogsmeade is just down the path."
"So you don't hate me?" she asked fearfully.
"We don't hate you," said Severus. "It is for Luna's own protection that she stays in the castle. Don't you remember what you great grandmother Cassandra went through. While your seer abilities are good, Cassandra's were better. She was hunted for her gifts. Luna falls in that category. She will be hunted for her gift. You wouldn't want her to get hurt would you?"
Harry and Draco both had to turn their faces. They both knew that Severus was lying through his teeth, but he had Sybil's attention and she was buying it hook, line, and sinker.
"Besides," said Minerva smoothly. "Someone such as yourself has to keep your gifts solely focused on Harry Potter and his family. This way you will be able to better concentrate on that instead of having to worry about the entire student body and the staff to boot."
"Yes that is right," said Sybil. "I can totally concentrate on my visions of Harry and his family. Thanks Minerva and Severus. I am sure Luna will be just fine for the students. However, she can't hope to be able to help Harry Potter like I can."
Sybil ran to her personal quarters and started packing that evening. She was done by the following morning. By the next day, she was firmly in a small house in Hogsmeade. By the following day, Luna was sitting comfortably in the rooms that Draco helped her set up.
"You do realize that every time she sends me a letter telling me about my death and the deaths of my husband and children that I will forward it to you and make you compose a reply, right?" asked Harry.
"It got rid of her quicker didn't it?" returned Minerva. "She is a fraud and we both know it."
"She did make two true prophecies," said Harry in Sybil's defense.
"Look where those prophecies got you," said Draco. "Hunted, and then betrayed. Luna sees things all the time that can help. Besides, I like Luna. She knows her stuff."
"I agree with Draco," said Hermione running her fingers through Ginny's hair. "It doesn't take but a thought for her to get a vision and for it to be one hundred percent accurate. I have come to trust Luna's visions. They have not led us wrong yet."
"I never said that I didn't agree with you all," snapped Harry. "I just meant that I am tired of Trelawney predicting my death is all."
Harry stomped off before anyone could get a word in edgewise.
"What is wrong with Harry?" asked Ginny nearly in tears.
"The potions are hitting him the wrong way today," said Draco. "He is trying to be cheerful for you all and act stronger, but in reality they are still kicking his ass. Even though he still has just a few weeks left to go, the potions will be affecting him for a few more months. Today is just one of his bad days. He will cool off soon."
"Are you going to go after him?" asked Severus.
"No," said Draco. "That will make him feel worse. He will let me know when he is ready for me."
"Poor Harry," said Minerva as she played with Chyna. "I do feel bad for him."
"I think that is part of what he is upset about," said Tom. "He feels bad because you are all sad for him. Your pain for him is worse than the actual physical pain he is going through."
"What is he doing now?" asked Ginny wiping her tears away.
"He is talking to Lily Potter," said Draco quietly.
The group was sitting there when they heard Harry's voice rise up in song.
Mama, I found someoneLike you said would come alongHe's a sight, so unlikeAny man I've knownI was afraid to let him in'cause I'm not the trusting' kindBut now I'm convincedThat he's heaven sentAnd must be out of my mind
Mama, he's crazyCrazy over meAnd in me life is where he saysHe always wants to beI've never been so in loveHe beats all I've ever seenMama, he's crazyHe's crazy over me
And, mama, you've always said,"better look before you leap!"Maybe so, but here I goLetting' my heart lead meHe thinks I hung the moon and starsI think he's a living' dreamWell, there are menBut ones like himAre few and far between
"He is hurting worse than I thought," said Draco standing and heading back to the castle.
"Poor Harry," said Hermione with a sigh.
The group gathered up their picnic stuff and the twins and headed back to the castle. Each was lost in their, own thoughts about what Harry was going through.
"Poor itsy bitsy baby Potter," said Bellatrix, canceling her disillusionment charm. "He is too sick to even be nice to his friends. It would seem that I can do something about all of that. It's time to pay his healer a visit."
"Morticia Daniels please," said Jean Granger. "I would like to talk with her about my grandchildren's father, Harry Potter and I am to understand that she is his Healer."
"Yes that is right," said the medi witch behind the desk. "She is on the third floor. It's the Special Patients Ward."
"Thank you," said Jean Granger as she walked away.
When she got to the third floor she went to the ward named. She saw Morticia dealing with the Longbottoms. Smiling she walked into the ward and shielded it to prevent anyone from entering.
"Well Morticia," said Bellatrix cancelling her glamour. "Working for the Dark Lord still I see."
"I was wondering when you would come for me Bellatrix," said Morticia. "I am only doing my job."
"A little too well if you ask me," said Bellatrix sarcastically. "You have had Potter in your hands for months and you have allowed him to live. That is something that you will be punished for."
"You are going to kill me for following the orders of the Dark Lord?" asked Morticia stalling for time.
"Do you honestly expect me to believe that you do not know that the Dark Lord has broken the bond and left the services of the Dark Prince?" asked Bellatrix stalking closer.
Bellatrix gave the healer credit. She did not seem afraid of her. She raised an eyebrow when Morticia crossed her arms and glared at her.
"I may be branded with the Dark Mark," said Morticia. "However my first job and all instructions since then were to stay here and do what I am supposed to do."
Bellatrix pulled out her wand and she stepped closer. Morticia didn't even give it a second glance. With two rapidly fired spells, both Frank and Alice Longbottom were dead. Bella turned to face the healer and was met with a wand to the face.
"You DO NOT scare me Lestrange," said Morticia. "I am just as powerful as you are. Besides, if you kill me you won't have another healer to help any hurt Death Eaters."
The fight broke out then. The two witches whirled and danced with their deadly spells flying at each other. Bellatrix was a very powerful witch. Many witches and wizards had tried to bring her down to no avail. She was the best of the best and she knew it. Morticia held her own against Bella. She knew that even if she lost, Harry would recover. She made sure to let those that were important know the rules and what they should do if someone tried to change them. For well over an hour the two witches fought. Finally Morticia made a fatal flaw and Bellatrix ended her life with a spell right to the head.
A little while later, Jean Granger walked out of St. Mungo's with a smile on her face.
"Harry?" asked Draco. "Are you alright my love?"
Harry looked up to the loving and concerned face of his husband. He stood and flung himself into Draco's arms. Draco held on to him for dear life as Harry broke down and cried. Harry had not cried once during this whole fight. He had been strong, proud, and supportive. He made everyone else feel better when it was he that had the illness.
"Just let it all out," said Draco rocking him back and forth. "We know. Everyone sends you their love. They understand that you can not be strong all the time."
Harry fell asleep while in Draco's arms. Draco shifted him and carried him to bed. He gently laid Harry on the bed and covered him with a blanket. With tears in his eyes he went and sat down at Harry's desk. He turned to Albus who was also wiping tears away.
"I hurt so much for him," said Draco. "I just don't know what else to do."
"You are doing everything you can my dear boy," said Albus. "There really isn't anything more that you can do that you aren't already. Just stay strong for him."
"Always," said Draco.
He sat back in the chair for a few minutes. He let his mind wander. He slowly started to hum and then sing.
Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old daysSometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazyGrandpa, take me back to yesterdayWhen the line between right and wrongDidn't seem so hazy
Did lovers really fall in love to stayAnd stand beside each other, come what mayWas a promise really something people keptNot just something they would sayDid families really bow their heads to prayDid daddies really never go awayOh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Grandpa, everything is changing fastWe call it progress, but I just don't knowAnd grandpa, let's wander back into the pastAnd paint me the picture of long ago
Did lovers really fall in love to stayAnd stand beside each other come what mayWas a promise really something people keptNot just something they would say and then forgetDid families really bow their heads to prayDid daddies really never go awayOh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old daysOh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
"Has anyone seen Nagini lately?" asked Draco later in the day.
"She just left to go outside," answered Severus.
"Oh," said Draco. "Usually the only time she leaves Harry's side is to go hunting. I happen to know that she went hunting this morning. She told Harry she ate."
"Maybe she is just gong to do some looking around while Harry is sleeping," suggested Ginny. "I like her. She seems to like me as well."
"She does," said Draco. "Something just doesn't feel right. I have a feeling something bad is fixing to happen."
"What is my mother doing here?" asked Hermione as she was looking out of the window. "She should not even be able to see this place much less be able to walk up to it."
"Maybe an Auror fixed her eyes for her," said Draco.
"Well I will find out soon enough," said Hermione.
Hermione left the castle and approached her mother. The others went about their business. What none of them knew was that as soon as they walked away, Hermione hit the ground unconscious from a stunner to the face.
Jean Ganger smirked as she quickly hid Hermione's body. Ginny went outside to see what was going on and was quickly overpowered by a spell. She hit the ground before she could utter a sound.
"I will be back to finish you when I get to my prime objective," said Jean as she approached the entrance to the castle.
As soon as she entered the castle, the charm vanished revealing her true look. Draco came around the corner and was surprised to see his aunt Bellatrix standing there.
"Ahhh," said Bellatrix with satisfaction. "Let me make it even harder for Potter to get well shall I? If I kill you for your traitorous ways, then it will make it easier for me to kill an already sick Harry Potter."
"You would attack someone when they can not defend themselves?" asked Draco in disbelief.
"What did you think I would do with him?" asked Bellatrix. "Sing him to sleep after I tell him a bedtime story? You picked the wrong side nephew and now you are going to pay for it. When I am done with you, I will kill your mate. I will kill the others and then take your children to the Dark Prince. They will be the ones to finally crush the Forces of Light."
"I will not let you harm Harry or my children," said Draco. "We will stop you before you get another inch."
"You may be powerful," said Bellatrix. "You are no match for me."
"BUT I AM," said a voice behind her.
Bellatrix swung around and fired a spell at the figure and missed.
"You have to do better than that Bellatrix," snarled Narcissa. "How dare you threaten my family?"
"YOUR FAMILY IS FILLED WITH HALF BLOODS, MUDBLOODS, AND BLOOD TRAITORS," screamed Bellatrix.
"THEIR BLOOD STATUS IS UNIMPORTANT," screamed Narcissa right back. "You will not harm anyone in my family EVER again. Let's end this once and for all you BITCH."
"I didn't think you had the backbone sister," said Bellatrix with a sneer. "You were never one to stand up for yourself."
"I did not have to before now," said Narcissa. "My son and my true family were never in danger before now."
Tom, Severus, Minerva, and Harry came down the stairs. Draco cast a shield in front of Harry to prevent him from harm.
"TOM," screamed Narcissa. "Protect my family. This bitch will die by my hand today."
Tom and Severus threw up every powerful shield they could manage. Draco called to Harry through the link demanding that he go back upstairs and to protect the children. Harry wasted no time in listening. He ran back up the stairs and let his magic flare to life as he cast a shield around him and his children.
The two sisters circled each other with hate in their eyes. One wanted the other dead and the other wanted everyone dead. One was beautiful inside and out while the other was insane with the beauty of power.
Soon spells were flying. The two were locked in a battle to the death. Harry was watching the battle through Draco's eyes using the link. He wanted to go down to help, but he knew that if Bellatrix got past the group downstairs, that he was the only one to save the children.
The fight between the sisters escalated. Soon it took everything that Minerva, Severus, and Draco had to keep misfired spells from hitting them. Harry winced every time a spell tore a piece of the castle floor or wall apart. The two were tired but they did not rest in their pursuit to destroy the other. It was after they were dueling for an hour when Bella finally made the tiniest of mistakes. From there, it was all she wrote for Bellatrix. Narcissa fired a Disarming Spell at her and watched in satisfaction as the wand flew from Bellatrix's hand. She hit her sister after that with Petrificus Totalus and watched as Bellatrix fell to the floor. She flicked her wand once more and caused her sister to rise to an upright position. Bellatrix's eyes grew wide with alarm as she watched her sister summon the sword of Salazar Slytherin.
"So much for the queen of darkness," said Narcissa and swung the sword in a wide arc severing the head from her sister's shoulders.
Once Bellatrix died, the rest of the group went into action. They spread out to make sure that everyone was ok. Hermione and Ginny ended up in the infirmary for the night. Neither had been hurt, merely knocked out for later torture. Harry summoned Arthur Weasley from the Ministry of Magic and gave him a recount of what happened. He was looking harassed.
"Harry," said Arthur sadly. "Hermione's parents were found dead. All signs point that it was Bellatrix Lestrange that did it. Also Morticia Daniels and the Longbottoms are dead. We have to tell Hermione and Neville."
"I will do it," said Minerva. "I will tell Neville myself. Severus, you will sit with Hermione and tell her. Draco you will stay here with Harry and make sure he doesn't go into a depression about this. The results could be damaging to his health."
"Severus," said Tom. "You go with Narcissa and make her comfortable. I will talk with Hermione and let her know."
"Are you sure?" asked Severus.
Tom only nodded in response and walked away. He knew his father had lots to answer for.
Harry and Draco sat in their room that night talking until the wee hours of the morning.
"This is all, my fault," said Harry.
"Just how do you figure that?" asked Draco. "She is not your relative. She is not your wife, mother, child, or anything else. You can not expect to fight every fight there is. She followed Tom when he was dark and then when Tom moved to the side of the Light, she followed someone else. This is NOT your fault. It is time for you to stop playing the martyr. No one person can control everything, even if that person is Harry Potter."
"How is it that you always know what to say to make me feel better?" asked Harry.
"I am your husband, soul bonded, and your lover," replied Draco. "It is my job."
"I love you Draco," said Harry. "I love you so very, very much."
"I love you just as much," said Draco.
They leaned back together and sat their listening to their hearts. They watched the sun rise and saw the beauty of the new day. They were not the only ones that watched the sun come up that day. Hermione and Ginny were also sitting together watching as the first rays hit the castle. Neville and Daphne were also in Hogsmeade sitting together giving comfort to each other for the loss. The war had taken a turn for the worse and then for the better. Narcissa Black finally rid the world of a deranged killer. Things could get better now.
Say you, say me; say it for alwaysThat's the way it should beSay you, say me; say it togetherNaturally
I had a dream I had an awesome dreamPeople in the park playing games in the darkAnd what they played was a masqueradeAnd from behind of walls of doubt a voice was crying out
Say you, say me... (chorus)
As we go down life's lonesome highwaySeems the hardest thing to do is to find a friend or twoA helping hand - some one who understandsThat when you feel you've lost your wayYou've got some one there to say "I'll show you"
So you think you know the answers - oh no'cause the whole world has got you dancingThat's right - I'm telling youIt's time to start believing - oh yesBelieving who you are: you are a shining star
Say it together... naturally.
