Two days later Nathan, James, Peter, Jessica, Lily, Narcissa, and Samantha gathered in the Gryffindor common room to go into Sirius dreams. They had no idea what would happen and Nathan and Peter were the only two that were a little scared about the whole trip. However, the rest knew that this was important and so Nathan and Peter joined them.
"How long do you think we'll be in his dreams?" Peter asked.
"No idea," James answered. "But we've got to try. Too many things are going to happen to let this chance pass up."
Everyone knew what James was talking about. And so muttering the spell, they all disappeared.
When they all reappeared they faced a huge wall. Everyone looked at each other, confused.
"And what's this suppose mean?" Jessica asked.
James became thoughtful.
"I, um, think that this is a mental wall," James said. "Either Sirius put this up or the Dream Demon did."
"So how do we break through it?" Narcissa asked.
Peter at once transformed and flew away. James watched him get smaller and smaller until he was gone. A few minutes later he returned and changed back into himself.
"The wall goes for miles," he reported. "Both up and across."
"Let me have a shot at it," Nathan said.
He extended his hand and suddenly a huge hole appeared. And then it started to heal itself.
"NOW!" James screamed.
Everyone shot forward and just managed to get through before it closed up.
Everyone looked around and saw a huge tree that had three boys under it. They were laughing as though the world was right. Suddenly the turned and transformed into hideous beasts. Jessica and Narcissa both screamed in terror, but James transformed into a huge raptor and they all ran away.
"What was that all about?" Nathan asked when James returned to normal.
"I don't know, but I think were having an easy time getting through the mental blocks because Sirius hasn't encountered something like us."
"Well I'm glad we've got some handle on this," Narcissa said. "However, how do we find Sirius?"
They thought about this until Peter yelled.
"Look at that," he said, pointing to a large archway that was on the other side of the small bit of space.
It stood at least ten feet high and had the look of age. They all walked across to it and then through it. That's when they dropped.
They landed on a hard floor that looked dirty with age. The moaning of other people could be heard and they all swore they heard the sound of cloaks.
"What is this place?" Nathan asked.
"Azkaban," James answered. "It has to be."
"Hay look over there," Samantha said, pointing to a shadow that looked human.
"What do you think it is?" Lily asked.
"I don't know, but let's follow it."
They moved forward, but they had gotten as close as they could when the ground started to shift. Spikes started to come out of nowhere along with a loud laugh.
"You're never going to save him," said the cold voice. "He will die, die, die."
"What are we going to do?" Peter asked.
"Follow me," James ordered.
He transformed into a long bridge and connecting to the other side, everyone ran across to the other side. James soon joined them.
"Let's get out of here before something else happens," Lily said.
They all bolted.
They continued on their journey, the sounds of prisoners moaning coming at them at all sides. And then the arms came at them. Rotting arms, their flesh hanging off and the smell of death everywhere.
"Get me out of here," Lily screamed.
And then they finally found Sirius.
Sirius Black was screaming in a room full of the rotting dead. None of them were moving, but the smell was everywhere. The laughter was back and it was driving most of them mad.
"You think that you can rescue him," it said. "He's going to stay here and die in his mind."
"I don't think so," James hissed.
He transformed and managed to rescue Sirius from the room. Everyone was impressed, but not the Dream Demon.
"No, you can't have him," it screamed.
"Oh blow off," Jessica muttered.
She brought her hands up and a huge gust of wind went through the entire room.
'Let's get out of here," Nathan said, taking hold of Sirius.
And they all bolted out of the room, past the rotting hands, past the spikes, through the archway, across the space, and into the light. When they all woke up, Sirius wasn't with them, but Nathan sensed that he was alright.
"Well I see that you're all awake," said the voice of Professor Dumbledore.
And that's when they noticed that they were all in the hospital wing.
