Red

Action / Adventure

Red

I know I should not be posting another story when I have so many I need to work on, but couldn't stop myself writing it and once the first chapter is written I can't stop myself from posting it.

Besides even if it takes me a year to finish the story at least it should bring attention to my Ron Crusade. Look on my profile to see what that is.

Prologue

Red

The man had rather long unkempt red hair. It used to be an orange red, but now as if stained by the blood of his enemies it was a deeper brighter red, a bloody Gryffindor red. Ron Weasley had never hated that color more. He stood in a battle field and he waited wand steady for the next one, but they did not come.

He scanned the area at chest height for anymore attackers and as he pricked his ears for a familiar sound. He didn't hear it and his blood ran cold. After Hermione had died years ago, he and Harry had never fought apart. If Harry wasn't fighting at his side it was because they were guarding each other's backs. He couldn't hear Harry breathing. He knew before he turned around.

Harry Potter lay just behind Ron guarding his back in a pool of his own blood, quite dead. This time Ron did not scream. This time he did not see red and feel red until he destroyed everything around him until he was red. This time unlike with Hermione he sank to his knees and took inventory.

Hermione was dead long ago as was Bill, Charlie, the twins, Percy, Ginny, and his parents. With Harry's death there was no longer a reason to live. The the last reason he had to stay on this earth was in a broken heap by his side missing some body parts no doubt. Was there another to live? Was there a mission to accomplish? Was there, he thought of the long dead Headmaster, a greater good to accomplish? No. This was the last battle. The last battle of the last people on earth. It was over.

He remembered something Hermione said once. Quoting someone. About the dying in the last battle, of the last war, from the last bullet. Something about how that was how true warriors wanted to go.

Ron smiled.

"You did that then. You won and got to home to them… What about the last man alive from the last battle, from the last war, on earth. What about him Harry. I get to die a coward's death then? No you would never think that of me. I'm sure no one will be anger at me. I'm sure no one will mind if I come with you just a little early."

"You should have waited you know. You should have waited for me to see you about to go and we could have gone together. Now I guess I'll to catch up."

He didn't use his wand. He used a knife and he slit his throat. As he went he tasted his own blood. As he left he left in red.

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
