DEATH SCENE

By Rashaka




Int.  Hogwarts, supply closet. 

Battle sounds, off-screen

Close in on Harry, sitting on floor, holding Luna with her head in his lap.

HARRY
I'm here.

LUNA
I'm glad.  I...  can see you.  I can see your face, and your hair, and your hands, but it's hard to--Harry, H-Harry!

HARRY
I'm right here.  I can see you too.  We can see each other, right?  So there's nothing to worry about.  It's like you said, as long as we can see each other when we look, then everything will be ok.  Luna, Luna--look at me.  That's right.  Look here, just like I'm looking at you.

LUNA
My chest feels hot, and...  thick.

She touches his face

LUNA
...  I wish you were smiling.  I like your smile.

HARRY
I know, I know-- see?  I am smiling right now.  I'm going to keep smiling, so you have to keep looking, ok?  Don't close your eyes.

LUNA
I love your smile, Harry.

HARRY
I love you.  All your smiles and all your parts and everything in between.  Don't close your eyes, oh please don't close them!

LUNA
It's okay, Harry.  Everything's going to be okay...  everything okay.

HARRY
I love you.

LUNA
I know...

Luna's eyes move slightly to one side, and her breathing slows.  Harry sobs and runs his hand through her hair.

HARRY
I love you...

Luna's no longer looking at him, and no longer moves.
