Part Seven: Voldemort Couldn't Kill Him
Jade ran out of the castle, looking at it for only a few seconds. It was a short and boxy looking castle with sharp and pointy stones on the ledges. She tried to apparate off with Sage but was unable to.
"We need to find a town or something." Jade said, pulling Sage along. Birds chirped everywhere around them as they passed the small stone house.
"Mummy!" Sage said, spotting Seamus running towards them from the castle.
Jade paled, wondering why she hadn't killed Seamus on the spot when she had the chance to. Now was the time to use that chance. Jade lifted up the heavy gun in her hands, seeing Seamus skid to a stop.
"Jade, don't do it. You've got the wrong person." He said calmly.
"I've had enough of your mind games Finnigan." Jade said, her voice quivering. Seamus stepped closer to Jade, his arms up.
"It's me babe." He said. Jade whimpered, feeling tears come to her eyes and Harry slowly placed his hand on her arm, lowering it gently.
"It's okay." He whispered.
Jade breathed deeply and hugged Harry tightly to her, smelling him deeply. Harry wrapped his arms around her and kissed the top of her hair.
"You need to take the Portkey out of here with Zane, he's-"
"HARRY!" Jade screamed when she saw a bloody nosed Seamus Finnigan in his real body stagger towards them, pointing a gun at Harry.
Before Harry or Jade could react, Seamus pulled the trigger and shot Harry five times. Jade tried to scream but she was so jarred, she felt her shock seize her.
Harry fell onto the ground and blood oozed out of his neck and seeped from his shoulder and arm. Jade's heart raced as she felt a sinking feeling in her stomach. She immediately tended to Harry, cradling his head in her arms, seeing his eyes closed.
"Please don't do this." Jade said, trying very hard not to cry.
Harry's warm dark blood ran down her arms and onto her lap, covering her everywhere.
Seamus grabbed the back of Jade's hair and pointed the gun to her head.
"I've had enough of you." he said.
Jade closed her eyes and heard a deafening shot. She was dropped and waited for the pain but nothing came. She heard another shot go off and two more along with it.
Opening her eyes, she felt her forehead. Smooth with and no gaping hole. She looked up to see Sage standing there with a gun in her hands and Seamus on the floor, dead. His brains were scattered all over the grass and his eyes were large as if he was just surprised.
"I'm not losing my Mummy again." She said.
She tossed the gun on Seamus and looked back at Jade. Jade could see that Sage looked highly upset of what she did. She started to cry and Jade took her into her arms, rocking back and forth.
"I killed someone! I did a very bad thing and now they're going to take me away from you!" Sage sobbed.
"You saved Mummy's life." Jade whispered, still looking at Harry who was bleeding out. She looked up to see Draco run out of the castle. In a few seconds he was in front of them, taking a quick glance at the scene.
"Are you both hurt?" Draco asked seeing them shake their heads. He immediately checked Harry's pulse.
"He's still alive." Draco said. He lifted Harry up with a struggle and told Jade and Sage to follow.
They saw Zane running out of the castle and he paled seeing Harry being carried by Draco.
"He's alive. We're taking him to St. Mungos, stay next to the body." Draco rushed. He left into the castle where there was a black kettle sitting on a wooden table inside the spacious stone castle.
"Hold on tightly to Mummy." Draco told Sage who nodded.
Jade held onto Sage and they all touched the Portkey. Jade felt the unusual feeling of being picked up by an imaginary fishhook and being flown around like a ragdoll. She landed roughly on her feet when she let go of the Portkey and Sage was sent hitting the ground.
"Ow." She muttered.
Draco grabbed Jade's hand and apparated immediately to St. Mungo's for Magical Maladies and Injuries. As soon as the Healers saw Draco running towards them with Harry on his shoulders, they presented a stretcher for him. Draco placed Harry onto the stretcher, his shirt dripping wet from the blood. They carted Harry into the emergency room and Jade stood there, holding Sage and crying.
"Hey." Draco said softly, wrapping his arms around her. "You did a good job." He said, kissing her forehead. He kissed Sage's head, smiling at her.
"You saved everyone. If he was still alive, he'd have killed everyone by now." Draco said gently to Sage who sobbed. Draco lifted her up in his arms, letting her cry on his shoulder.
"I love you both." Draco said, hugging Jade close.
"Harry…what if something happens to Harry?" Jade asked croaked, hugging Draco back.
"If Voldemort couldn't kill him, I highly doubt Finnigan would. He's the Boy Who Lived for crying out loud. In a few days he'll be up and about showing his stupid guns off to you." Draco said.
