Hey everyone, I finally decided to start up this story again. I'm really sorry my updates are so slow. I'm just so busy all of the time. You try going to high school and making sure you get straight A's so you can get valedictorian. Not only that, try going to collage at night! I have no free time! Oh well, enough wallowing in self-pity. I have a fic to right...
Of course, I don't own Sailor Moon or Harry Potter. If I do ever go to some big Ivy League school and start making billions of dollars, I will see what I can do about buying them...
Oh, and one more thing... I've completely changed the entire Sailor Moon time line. No Silver Millennium or Negaverse... don't worry, you'll see how everything works...
Harry was entranced by the mysterious portrait. Staring back at him was the most beautiful sight he had ever seen. Serena.
Slowly, the silver goddess came to life. Harry gaped as he saw a slender foot step out of the portal. He backed up as she was presented to him.
"Harry?" asked Serena cautiously. "How did you get here?" Her voice held confusion and fear.
"I... well... the book, it brought me here," he replied, still gawking at the lovely princess.
Serena looked him over. Her eyes finally rested on the open book in his left hand. It was open to a star with a single point glowing, it was clearly directing him to her... Serena smiled brilliantly and once again met Harry's gaze. "I knew it. You are the one."
"The one from the prophecy!" Serena exclaimed.
"Serena, what are you talking about? You're confusing me." Harry was trying desperately to make some sort of sense of what she was telling him. "Please, I know I hurt you and I'm sorry. You can trust me. Tell me, what are you hiding?"
Serena's smile faded as she took on a new expression. It was one full of sympathy and compassion. She slowly raised her hand and placed it on his cheek. Harry closed his eyes as he reveled in the feeling of the angel's touch. "Harry, I'm not hiding anything. All of the secrets I possess are just waiting for you to come along and uncover them." Serena then removed her hand and walked out the door, leaving Harry even more confused than he had been previously.
The next day all of the students were sitting at their respective tables eating breakfast and chatting loudly. The owls swooped down to deliver their letters and packages, but the students attention rested on a different bird. It appeared to be a falcon. In it's talons rested an object that most of the students couldn't make out because of the light's glare. Many curious eyes watched as the bird landed. Serena smiled sweetly as it made its way to her. She softly petted the falcon as it pecked at the food in her hand. "Thank you for finding this for me." Serena palmed the object in her hand. She was now one step closer in achieving her destiny. She gazed at her new gem. It was the same size and shape as the jewel of Neptune. Serena then took notice of its color. Sandy yellow. Her eyes filled up with tears as she realized who she would be reunited with next.
"Serena? Are you okay?" came Ron's concerned voice. Serena turned and looked at him, startled.
"Yes, of course. I'm fine." She knew she didn't sound too convincing. It didn't help that she had to reach up and wipe away the small droplets that were now sliding down her cheeks. "I... I just remembered something I forgot to do. I got to go." Serena hurriedly picked up her things and started to leave. However, she never made it away from the table, for Harry had grabbed her wrist. He held her firmly but not overly so.
"Serena, that's a lie and you know." Harry accused.
Serena sighed. "Harry, I told you already. I..."
"Don't give me that. We're supposed to be friends. What is the big deal? I just want to help you!"
"Friends? Don't talk to me about being friends! I tried to be your friend! I tried to tell you everything!" Serena screamed, allowing her tears to cascade down her porcelain skin. "You were the one that betrayed me!" The entire room was watching intently. All eyes were eagerly awaiting for the drama to unfold.
"Serena..." Harry whispered softly. You could feel his guilt radiating off of him.
"Don't 'Serena' me! I don't want to hear it! Just like you didn't want to hear what I had to say the first day of school! Couldn't you tell how much it meant to me for you to listen?!"
"I have other friends you know. It's not like I'm just going to blow them off whenever you are in need of attention!" The moment the words escaped Harry's lips he regretted them. His heart shattered as he looked into Serena's hurt filled eyes.
"Attention? Do you really think I'm that shallow?" Serena's voice was soft now. You could feel the pain dripping from her lips. "I didn't know that was how you pictured me. Maybe I was just kidding myself. I just thought I meant more to you, but obviously I was wrong. You're not who I thought you were." Serena picked up the topaz gem and slowly treaded towards the large doorway of the Great Hall. She could sense everyone watching her back. Right before she left a thought struck her. She turned around to see Harry's intense gaze. She gave him one last smile, though all could tell it was forced. "You might as well burn the book, Harry. It's useless now. The prophecy is impossible." With that she turned and walked away from the one that held her heart captive.
Once Serena rounded the corner, she slumped down into a pitiful heap. She sobbed softly into her hands. Serena then registered that someone was watching her. She looked up to see a figure knelt down in front of her. His eyes were cold and cruel, but she was not afraid. They stayed that way for what seemed like ages, searching each other's eyes. Finally, Serena threw her arms around him and settled into his awkward embrace. It wasn't that she didn't feel comfortable with him. It just felt like he had never held anyone this close and was unsure of what to do.
"Who are you?" Serena asked, not even bothering to look up at him. She needed this closeness. She was hurting and needed someone to be there for her.
The figure looked down at her and smirked. Her head was nuzzled safely against his chest. "The name's Draco Malfoy."
Well, that's all for now. Sorry it's so short, but I never force my writing. I just write whenever I feel like it. If I tried to make myself write then it wouldn't be fun. So, I guess I'll write more soon. For real this time. I really don't have to tell you to review. Every author loves getting them.
IMPORTANT!!! Do you want a Harry/Serena fic or a Draco/Serena fic? I've made it to where I can do either of them. There will be romance with both guys but I need to know who you want Serena to ultimately end up with. Please tell me in your reviews!
