Harry had managed to avoid a confrontation with Voldermort right up until he saw Buffy rushing up the tower. When his interest was drawn to her, Voldemort seemed to bypass everyone around him and was suddenly standing in front of him with a creepy smile on his face.
Harry could only back up and make a strange gulping sound come out of his mouth. According to the prophecy he had some power the dark lord knew not, but he didn't know what that power was so he had no clue how to activate it.
Voldemort merely raised his wand in a gesture of impatience and said "Surely the Great Harry Potter isn't afraid. This is your chance to rid the world of me. Raise your wand."
Harry raised his wand slowly, his mind racing for a spell, going through the wand less magic to the wizarding magic he knew. He couldn't seem to grasp one thought before it was too late and Voldemort had sent a curse in his direction. He rolled out of the way; executing a move Buffy had taught him in the first week of lessons.
But the next curse was more sudden and didn't leave him enough time to dodge and he took it full on. The pain from the crucio curse is not something meant for a 15 nearly 16 year old and Harry could only grit his teeth as the familiar pain washed over him.
Voldemort stopped to let him stand but didn't look in the least bit worried as he said "And to think, you're supposed to defeat me…….. Surprised Potter, yes I know a little of this prophecy, but it is of no concern to me anymore. Tonight you die, along with your filthy mudblood friends."
Harry glared at him and using wand less magic pushed him and made him stagger as he raised his wand and sent out a disarming spell. However Voldemort merely raised a shield and sent another crucio curse at him. He rolled away again and sent a cutting curse which drew a slight gasp of pain from Voldemort.
He grinned triumphantly but it vanished when Voldemort starting laughing and said "Is that it, Potter. I expected more. Crucio. Not even a remark about this being for your parents. Crucio. They at least begged for your life. You really are a disappointment. Crucio."
Harry was starting to black out, and all he could think about was the prophecy. This power he had, he couldn't find, and it was going to cost the world, all because of his failure. As he lay there withering he noticed the sky was opening up and what looked like lighting was streaking across the sky. A glance around saw his friends fighting for their lives. His breathing was laboured as he once more stood up but this time on legs that were shaking.
Voldemort looked at him amused and said "Finally have something to say. Let's hear it then."
Harry looked once more at the platform high up and bit back a gasp as he saw someone fling themselves into the portal. He looked back at Voldemort and said "You killed my parents and tried to kill me but yet here I stand. You tried to kill me again in my first year, my second year, my fourth year but yet here I stand. I am just a teenage boy and yet you haven't defeated me, what's that say about you?"
Voldemort let out a cry of fury and he said "Avada Kevada" which because he had no energy to move, he stood there with his eyes closed waiting for it to hit.
If he had opened his eyes he would have seen what Voldemort had seen and that was a green energy consume the curse and then that energy suddenly consume him.
He opened his eyes at the exact moment the energy was in him and he smiled at the knowledge he now processed. He took a breath and said "Tonight your reign on my world ends. Tonight you will find out exactly why my parents died for me." With that said he opened his palm and muttered "necto" which cause Voldemort to suddenly stop moving much in the way a freezing charm worked. Harry smiled again and said "Any last words." When he didn't speak but his eyes were looking around frantically Harry said "Whoops forget.. loquor"
Voldemort looked at him in anger but said "You may have beaten me Potter but I will never be gone."
Harry smiled and said "En Quatre I think you will find with this next spell you will literally disappear."
Voldemort looked at him with disgust and said "You do not have enough power for that."
Harry simply smiled again and walked up to him and said "Hey Voldy want to know a secret." He then proceeded to go right close to ear and whispered "It's not just Harry in here anymore."
Voldemort eyes widened but Harry just backed up and smiled again and said "Buh bye. Defluo"
And every death eater fighting suddenly turned in horror as they saw their leader burst into a million pieces in front of the teenager. Harry turned to them and said "Your leader is gone, ether give up or run. Stay and fight and you will find out just how powerful I have become."
Much to the amazement of everyone there, most death eaters seemed to admit to defeat and put their wands on the ground. However the select few apparated out of there.
Harry turned and saw Buffy standing at the foot of the tower with tears running down her face. He turned and saw Dawn staring at her sister with a mask of horror and Harry suddenly felt like he was trapped in the back of his mind as his body starting moving at its own accord.
As he watched Dawn run over to Buffy he moved slowly toward them, ignoring the people trying to talk to him. He heard Dawn demand to know what happen and when Buffy told her he heard her protesting and saying she was lying before breaking down and crying in her arms.
He didn't understand how this was happening but he knew why and he had precious minutes before he would be gone. He stood in front of the two girls with tears running down his face and they both looked at him in confusion.
He took a deep breath and said "It's me. I don't know how long I can stay in this body but I need you to know that you guys are going to be ok."
Buffy looked at Harry in confusion and said "What?" Dawn however was all he was looking at and she suddenly burst into fresh tears and wrapped her arms around him and said "No don't go." Buffy seemed to become even more confused and he chuckled and said "Are you serious? You're not that blonde, well come to think of it I have seen you dye your hair so you're not blonde at all."
Buffy's eyes widened in shock as she said "Cay Cayden? How….?" He smiled at her and said "I was holding your wand, the core was Harry but this is only temporary. I needed to say goodbye and let you know it was meant to be." He felt Dawn's grip tighten and she said "No! Please, Cay, don't go. I need you. You're the other half of me." He smiled and said "It's too late, Dawnie. I am already gone. Harry has his whole life to live; I can't just take over it. Dawn, listen to me, you need to help him. He's going to go through some rough stuff; he's had a hard life and needs a family. You guys are my family; even though I wasn't really real, so show Harry what you showed me."
Buffy felt more tears run down her face but she put her arm around both her siblings and said "He's already part of this family." He smiled and said "I love you guys." And with that a flash of green and Harry was once again Harry only now he had two females hugging him tightly. He blushed in embarrassment and tried to escape only to have both girls say "Hey."
He ducked his head and said "Err sorry." Buffy looked at him like he was an idiot and said "Don't be a dumbass. You're our brother, as much as Cayden is, er was. He's right, you're part of the family."
Dawn sniffed and said "Yeah. Cayden wanted that."
Harry smiled slightly and said "Yeah. I guess."
Buffy smiled at him through her tears and said "Yeah and now that you've kicked Voldy's butt you can finally get rid of those relatives of yours, and join your real family."
Harry smile increased ten fold as he looked at them and the implications sunk in as he said "Yeah a real family."
They started walking off together when the ministry of magic officials suddenly appeared looking around them in shock at the death eaters that were now tied and gagged.
Buffy smiled wickedly when she saw two people standing glaring at her. She turned to her family and said "Just a sec, got something I need to do."
She walked over to the two and smiled sweetly and said "Little late aren't you?" She pulled back both her fists and swung with all her might. She watched satisfied as both Umbridge and the Minister went down like sacks of potatoes.
She then turned walked back to Harry and Dawn who were looking at her shocked and said "That felt good."
Couldn't help but put that in at the end. Hope you liked and aren't too disappointed in me. I really needed to finish this story and it took me forever to work out how I wanted to end it. This is how I pictured it ending so I hope you like it. Feel free to review and tell me what you think. Really curious if it is up to the par in your eyes. Oh and the Latin words are necto which means bind, loquor which means speak and Defluo which means disappear. Hope you liked, can you tell I am neverous about this. Oh well.
