In Light Darkness Prevails
"Deny thy father and refuse thy name..."
"Tis but thy name that is my enemy..."
be some other name!
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet..."
Things started out simple. Things seemed perfect. I was in love. Pure joy was all I felt. Every time he kissed me I felt bliss, nothing more, nothing less. The body on the floor soon ruined my bliss. I no longer felt what I had once felt. December 7th it ended. Us was over. No longer would we be one. All I had was one friend and a misunderstanding family.
I watched him stand there, wand in hand, out of the corner of his eye he watched me. I was safe hidden in the dark. The only light in the room was the fireplace, silently flickering. I held his cloak tighter to me. It was black velvet with a silver inside. I slowly twisted my ring out of habit.
"Falling for her! Of all people! Draco you know better!" His father yelled at him.
" I love her father! I don't care what you think!"
"You portray your own father for that mud-blood lover!"
"Humans are human! Not pieces of scrap to be judged by their appearance for their worth!"
"Mud-blood's are worthless! You know that."
"What I know is that they are capable of greater things then you'll ever amount to!"
"I wouldn't say such things if I were you." He grabbed Draco by his shirt collar.
"You're a coward! A weakling ! You're so scared of what would happen if you just let something different be! Something you knew could possibly be better then you ! Someone who's family that hasn't been working on it for generations! You can't do that Father! You can't work on it! It happens when it happens!"
"I am stronger then you boy!" A flash of red light burst from Draco's wand pushing his father against the wall. Another flash, Draco's wand flew out of his hand and landed a foot away from me. I stared at it thinking of what I could do. If only I hadn't sat and thought. If only I had done what I could've. Maybe today he'd still be here. Regrets are for only those who never want to live again.
Draco stared back at his father as if to dare him. A green light blasted from his father's wand. He fell to his knees silently. I could hear only my heart beating faster and faster. I opened my mouth to scream, but nothing would come out. His body fell to the ground empty and hollow. In a flash his father was gone. Tears welled in my eyes as a ran towards him. The cut on his cheek dripped down to his chin. I touched the blood with the tip of my finger. My ring glinted in the firelight. I gently touched his lips with the tips of my fingers. I outlined them. A drop of water gently fell to his cheek from mine.
You know, you always hear about the infamous Harry Potter. He who has risked is life for others and the world. You always hear about his sidekicks, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Hermione, the brains of the bunch who works through the logic like eating a piece of cake. Ron, the man who always has Harry's back. The trio to remember, that's what they call them at school. Everyone talks about them;
"Pst, did you here what they did? I know, how brave can they be?"
They watch their every move to see what will happen next. The girls swoon at Harry's feet. Some claim him in love with her , but he doesn't even know of their existence. No one wants anything to do with the sidekicks unless they're a girl just trying to get to Harry. They are called the keys to the forbidden lock. Some try to become good friends with Ron and Hermione , but none prevail. My brother is smart enough to see when a girl is using him and Hermione just scares them away with her intelligence and lack of a want to talk to strangers. So, Harry remains untouched until Cho breaks the barrier. She only lasts for awhile because she becomes too emotional and wants too much. He withdraws his cards and is surrounded by an even thicker barrier. No one can go through it only who he allows. Sirius dies and a silent black hole opens. He is sucked in and blames himself for it all;
"If I only I wasn't so stupid, if only I hadn't-"
Slowly his heart slithered away in the darkness. He never cried, never, he would die first. He was swallowed whole and none of his protectors could see it. Silently they stood back and watched their friend go under, not understanding what to make of it. Harry drew further away from the world, further away from his reality. He came to a place unknown to him there he found nothing, but peace. Still he never cried. He almost selfishly gave his life away just so he could be rid of the guilt. The after life forgets nothing and becomes worse out of loneliness. He realized he had a purpose and he needed to fulfill. Silently screaming he made it through the days finding friendship in surprising people. Depression was the link between us, both lonely, both in need of some one to just talk to and not have on your back all the time. The darker days came around again. Voldemort's power grew and with that, so did his army of Death Eaters. We fought and lost. Some said there is no help left, but hope is found in strange places. In the depths of the unknown it waits seeking its chance to attack and hurt others. If you get your hopes high all they would do is be squashed as you saw your mother unmoving on the ground before the hands of Voldemort.
I hate having boyfriends. They seem quite pointless to me. It's as if that you must spend every waking moment with them just because you live in the same bloody school! It's either you have to be snogging with them or just showing off that you have a boyfriend. Why show it off? I've been single before, I actually enjoyed it, but the way some girls whined about it I guess it's sort of rude to be more or less rubbing it in their face you have a boyfriend. I hate mine honestly, but the guy seems as if he is "so in love" with me I just don't have the heart to break his. He even says he does. " Oh, I love you , Ginny! You are so beautiful!" Soon enough, I bet he'll want me to sleep with him. Where are we supposed to sleep together? I've heard of people so desperate to have sex they do it in a broom closet! How do I know? One time Flinch found a couple in there. It tickled my funny bone. You've got to wonder, does anyone here actually ever find love here? Most sixteen year olds by now have found their "first love" and no one can ever forget the wondrous story of Harry's parents.
James and Lily loved and hated each other , wow much like Ron and Hermione, but I'm not getting into that. All through their years in Hogwarts they fought. In their 7th year Sirius, god bless his soul, went out with Lily. James never would admit he was in love with Lily to any one because guys are just like that. Lily just refused to accept her love for James and thought dating Sirius would cure her. Well it turns out Sirius figured this out before he started dating Lily, she didn't swoon at his presence and was always watching James when he was talking to her, and developed a plan with the rest of their mutual friends. It was to make James jealous enough he would admit his feelings and Lily to realize how much better James was compared to every other guy.
Well as all wonderful romance (gags) stories go it ended up the day after Sirius and Lily started "dating" Lily confessed and the lovers kissed. Blah, blah, blah, they got married and Harry came along. Honestly I think, no offense to Harry's parents, that Lily was pregnant before she was married. You never know they could be the ones who started the broom closet epidemic.
I doubt I'm ever going to fall in love.
Draco is such a prat! He keeps acting like an immature prat, who he is, but ,god forbid, he has this new tendency for following me. I mean come on man! You're in your seventh year! In the wizarding world you are considered of age! Of age to what? To act like a child!
Then again, he is quite easy on the eyes. Especially now that he has started washing his hair. His gray eyes seem to be more of a silver now. Even his smile is nice. shakes head That's insane! He is a bloody jerk and shouldn't be allowed to walk this planet. Especially as a good-looking, very nice bodied wizard... smiles sheepishly
