As quickly as everything had come, there was nothing left in the wake but doubts, and everyone felt it undeniably. Especially two black-haired, light skinned young men.

Harry Potter was the worse off wizard of the two. The luck of his wand core was not something that escaped him that easily. Nor was Cedric Diggory's fate, for that matter. Harry now had another scar from an encounter with Voldemort, but this one held an entirely different meaning for him. While the first was a reminder of his mother's sacrifice, the second was a reminder of his weaknesses and the harsh reality of his inabilties.
