Harry's POV

A green glow covered the forest, the mark of Voldemort floated above the small manor. Only one life was lost…

Only one life was extinguished. And the Light made sure of that.

Ministry officials were shrouding me, badgering me with questions. Everything was a blur…

I didn't see, I didn't hear, I didn't even feel the rain pounding on my skin.

One thing was on my mind…

Draco…

I couldn't believe he was gone. I wouldn't believe he was gone.

Someone put a hand on my arm, I looked up to see Blaise, Hermione was standing behind him. His mouth moved, but I didn't hear his words. I didn't hear the words…

He was gone…

That's all my mind processed.

Nothing else…

I didn't care about anything else…

Just Draco…

And…he was gone.

I somehow was escorted back to Hogwarts…

It no longer held the warmth I normally felt within it.

And I had a feeling it no longer would.

The windows were like hollow eyes…no longer bright and merry.

I knew this was simply because it was Holiday…and almost no one was there…

But to me…the less people the better.

The fire crackled in front of me and yet it could not thaw the icy dread that had consumed my heart.

My fire…my warmth…

…Was gone…
