The release of Malfoy Manor house elves

"Dobby, are the others ready?" I ask.

"Yes Master Draco, Squeaky is now waiting for the signal in the kitchen." Dobby answers.

"Ok on the count of three I'll give the signal," I announce, counting down to three 'One…Two…Three' I flick the switch on the enchanted torch that rest in my hand signalling to Squeaky that Lucius has left the Manor.

(Down in the kitchen) "That's the signal." Calls out Squeaky to the others, only three minutes later the loud sound of house elves disaparating echo's through the halls of Malfoy Manor.(Back to Draco and Dobby) After the last pop I turn to Dobby.

"You need to go now Dobby, father will be here soon." I rush out.

"Young Master has done a very noble thing for us house elves, and I shell not leave you to be punished for the good things you have done, Young Master you must come with me, we can go to your god father?" I shake my head in disagreement, 'no we can't, that will only increase father's anger' I think grimly to myself. I look deep into Dobby's big doe eyes and tries to convince the stupid house elf to leave but to no prevail.

"Dobby you need to go now, you will only anger father more." I shout panicking.

"Dobby please, please go!" I say now at the stage of begging the house elf to leave.

"No Young Master, Dobby shells not go without…" Dobby is cut off by the screams that cause a knot to grow in my throat.

"Dobby you being here will only anger father far more than needed." I say trying to guilt the house elf to leave. Now the screaming has stopped and thunderous footsteps can be herd making their way to the door of the room that is situated on top of the kitchen.

"Draco Lucius Malfoy!" Yells father. I quickly look to the door and back at Dobby.

"Dobby please go." Now with father at the entrance of the door I am at the summit of my panic. Suddenly I have an idea. I reach out my arms aiming to shake some sense into the dense house elf but as soon as I come in to contact with the house elf he disappears. I gasp in shock but then relax whispering my gratitude at Dobby's sudden departure but as soon as the relief came it goes.

"You insolent little boy what have you done!" Lucius Malfoy says in his usual menacing voice. I look up at my father only to be met with the knuckles of Lucius's fist.

"You have disgraced the Malfoy name by helping those beneath you." Father spits unleashing his full anger on me leaving bruises everywhere his fists touch.

"I told you Draco, if you did not start acting like a Malfoy Heir I would punish you, you've left me no choice but to do as such, it is now my duty to put you in your rightful place… CRUCIO!" I scream in agony and falls to my knees writhing in pain beneath my father's calculating gaze with no pity, no regret and no look of despair at the sight of me his own son in pain, and this is what cuts the deepest. After about twenty minutes into the curse I just stop screaming like when you've been hit over and over again, you become so numb that you forget to feel and when you forget to feel you have no reason to scream. The pain is still immense, it feels like being whipped over and over again but you've lost your reason for screaming, no one's coming, no one cares and no one will hear you, so what's the point? The pain is now only a dull torment. I soon start to feel like I'm losing it, looking into my fathers lifeless cold grey eyes I forget why Lucius is doing this to me, what did I do? Why is father doing this to me? I start to scream again trying to beg father to stop. why is am I being punished what did I do? After what seems like a decade Lucius Malfoy finally decides to stop but before leaving the room he hiss's

"It will do you well to remember where your place is son" removing loose strands of hair from his face and turns with his robes whipping behind him. I lie on the ground with the pain flooding back in I try to remember what had happened before father had walked into the room, and suddenly it all comes flooding back, helping the hose elves to escape, Dobby disappearing, screaming, hurting and endless pain. I just lie there on the floor with dried tears and blood on my face and soon give in to the pain and drowsiness. I finally close my eyes succumbing to the dark.
