And so, here it is. Some more stuff...building. And such. More of an original chapter cause I didnt want to get the book. xDD
Timcanpy, the golden golem, was currently fluttering on a cool breeze, a bit of gold in the gray sky. He was scanning the sky, the grounds, the lake, the forest. He, Tim, was on a mission.
He had chosen to go on this mission himself. No one had told him to go. But he was going anyway. He was trying to find where the Akuma were.
But then he 'heard' an explosion and turned away from his mission and forgot about it completely. For he really had no mind and to keep more than one thing in something that doesn't really exist doesn't work too well.
And so Timcanpy, the golden golem, turned away and fluttered in the direction of the Quidditch field. That was the origin of the explosion. And although he had no eyes, he could 'see' a column of smoke rising.
Tim flew faster, 'hearing' his young master's voice. And another explosion. And silence.
The golden golem zipped down quickly, hovering over the heads of students and exorcists. He spotted white hair and fluttered down to land beside his master.
"Allen!" said Lavi, moving forward slightly. Lenalee was wide eyed, but had moved past him, looking for Miranda.
"Miranda," she whispered, kneeling down beside the older woman. She pulled her up and Miranda moaned.
"W-what happened?" she murmured, her eyes fluttering open.
"I…don't really know. The Akuma, it shot something at you and Allen. Are you alright?" Lenalee asked as she helped the other exorcist up into a sitting position.
"Yeah. Just a little dazed, b-but I'm fine," she said, looking around. Students had slowly crept over to them.
"W-what was that?!" asked one student, staring at the exorcists with wide eyes.
"It was a…" Lenalee drifted off, but before she had to answer, Professor McGonagall came running over.
"All students must proceed to the Great Hall immediately!" she said. The students, still looking frightened, nodded and headed slowly to the Great Hall. Another teacher rushed out as well, herding them inside.
"What happened? Was it Akuma?" she asked in a hushed voice as she neared them. Lenalee nodded, standing and helping Miranda stand as well.
"What happened to Mr. Walker?" Professor McGonagall asked, spotting him next to Lavi.
"He…got hit by something," said Lavi.
"We need to get him to the hospital wing!" and with that, she conjured a stretcher out of thin air. Carefully, Lavi placed his friend on it and followed the teacher and the stretcher. Lenalee and Miranda followed more slowly, because Miranda was still unsure on her feet.
Up at the Hospital wing, they were met by Madam Pomfry.
"Goodness Gracious! What happened?" she asked as they brought Allen in.
"Akuma," said Professor McGonagall, glancing around. "I have to be off. I'll tell Mr. Lee what happened."
"Don't worry. I'll tell him," said Lenalee, pulling out her wireless golem. She switched it on and contacted her brother as the teacher left the hospital wing.
"Brother, come the Hospital Wing, please!" she said once she had contacted him.
Her brothers' voice came over. "What happened Lenalee? Was there an attack?"
"I'll be there," he said and the line went dead. She put her wireless golem away and hurried over to where Madam Pomfry was checking Allen.
"How is he?" she asked the healer.
"He seems fine, I'll want to keep him here for a day or two though," she answered, turning to look at the other three exorcists.
"Then why'd he pass out?" asked Lavi.
Madam Pomfry was silent for a moment. "Well, I think he just got thrown back when there was the explosion. That's all." She moved back over to the bedside and pulled her wand out. She said something and Allen moaned, his eyes flickering open.
"Allen!" both Lenalee and Lavi said happily. Their friend sat up, holding his head.
"Ouch. My head hurts," he muttered, looking around. "Where am I…how'd I get here?"
"You passed out, remember?" asked Lavi.
"I don't recall passing out Lavi, or else I wouldn't have asked," he said, still holding his head. "Is everyone else alright? Did anyone get hurt?"
"Miranda was with you, so she would have been the one to worry about, but she said she was fine," said Lenalee. Miranda nodded, but Madam Pomfry looked around.
"Sit down, let me look at you!" Miranda sat down and Madam Pomfry looked her up and down, looking at her arms. She healed a few small cuts that Miranda had but cleared her. "You're fine. Mr. Walker though, needs to stay here."
"What?!" he said, looking around quickly. He swayed slightly, and Lenalee had the feeling that he had looked around a little too fast.
"You have to stay here," she repeated. "Is it just your head that's hurting?"
"Y-yes," he said, looking away.
"What else is wrong?" she demanded as the doors to the Hospital wing opened once more. The three other exorcists looked around and saw Dumbledore and Komui walking in.
"I'm fine!" Allen said, not noticing the new arrivals.
"Tell me what's wrong!" Madam Pomfry said, glaring down at him.
"Allen, what's wrong with your arm?" asked Lavi, noticing that he held his right arm tightly with his left.
"Nothing. I'm fine," he said quickly.
"Allen, stop being so stubborn. Show her your arm," said Komui. Allen looked around.
"O-ok…" he said and let go of his right arm.
Madam Pomfry hurried up to him and touched it gently.
She glanced at him. "Take your jacket off so that we can see your arm," she told him. He pulled his left arm out but couldn't pull his right out.
"…Hurts too much," he grimaced, trying again.
"I'll help you," said Lenalee. She walked around the bed and carefully pulled the sleeve off.
"Goodness gracious! Why'd you hide this?" she demanded, looked angrily at him.
He cringed away, looking down. "I dunno," he muttered.
His shoulder was out of its socket. Madam Pomfry frowned, glancing over at Dumbledore, who was watching calmly, then looked back at the Allen. "This is going to hurt," she warned.
Allen nodded, gritting his teeth. She pointed her wand at his shoulder and said something. Allen jumped, left hand clenching the bed. There was a loud pop and Allen let go of the bed, rolling his shoulder in a large circle.
"Not to bad," he said. "Thank you."
"Thank you for saving the students," said Dumbledore, walking up to the exorcists.
"No problem!" said Lavi, smiling.
"They won't remember though. So I do hope you refrain from talking about it," said the Headmaster, smiling as well. "They're getting their memories modified at the moment."
"Y-you can do that?" asked Miranda, surprised. Dumbledore nodded.
"We won't mention it."
"And don't say anything to Professor Umbridge either. She left before the attack, which is good."
"Why'd we tell that old to—"
"We promise not to tell anyone," said Lenalee, cutting Lavi off.
"I know you won't," he said, then added, in a quieter tone, "you may talk to Harry and his friends about this, but no one else. They are involved with the Order, along with the rest of the Weaslys, so they have a right to know what's going on."
They all nodded.
"Komui, have you heard from Kanda?" said Allen, rolling his shoulder again. Komui looked at him, silent for a moment.
"Yes, I have. You don't have to worry. He's alright," he said, smiling. "Well, I'm glad that all of you are ok. I'll see you later, at dinner." He turned and started to walk.
"I wish to talk to you Komui. If you could come with me up to my office," said the Headmaster, and strode across towards the Black Order chief. Together they exited the Hospital Wing.
"So…can I go?" asked Allen, pleading.
"Allen, its ok. Stay here, you need to rest. We'll come back later," said Lenalee and smiling, headed out with Miranda. Lavi stayed behind.
"What happened when there was that explosion?" Lavi asked quietly, once Madam Pomfry had left. She was satisfied that Allen wouldn't run away once she left.
Allen concentrated, thinking back.
"I was…standing by Miranda. And then…I looked around. And I saw…" he paused, thinking hard. "…something coming at me."
"Something coming at you?"
Allen nodded, and rubbed his right arm. "Yeah. It was…I can't remember. Then I remember getting up and seeing the Akuma holding a student. I shot it. And…then I don't remember anything else."
"You sure you're alright?" the older exorcist asked.
"Yeah…I'm fine. I already told you that," Allen said, smiling.
"Yeah, and you had a dislocated shoulder."
"I'm ok though," said Allen. "I think I'm gonna get some sleep. I haven't been sleeping very well lately."
Lavi stood up. "Ok, I'll come back later with Lenalee. Hope you can get some sleep." He walked away from Allen, heading out of the Hospital Wing. Just before he left, he glanced back. Allen was still sitting on the bed, staring at the sheets and rubbing his arm. Then he flopped down and Lavi was out of the Hospital Wing.
As soon as Allen lay down, he fell asleep. It was as if sleep had been waiting for him. He hadn't even been that tired. But he fell asleep now.
And he dreamed.
This one was different than the one haunting him before.
Allen looked around. Everything was bright, the colors more brilliant, the sunlight warm and welcoming. He smiled, walking through the grass.
"S-stop it! Stop it!" Laughter rang through the air. Allen looked around again, trying to find who was laughing. He saw a clear lake, a sandy beach…his friends.
"Lenalee, Lavi!" he yelled, waving and running towards them. They waved back, smiling.
"Hi Allen!" said Lenalee as he reached them. She was in a two piece bathing suit, her hair gleaming in the sunlight.
"Hey Allen," Lavi said, pulling him into a one armed hug.
"What're you guys doing?" he asked.
"Playing of course!" said Lavi, laughing.
"But what about the Akuma?"
"There're no Akuma here!" said Lenalee, laughing as well. She glanced at Lavi, then back at Allen and ran away from them.
"Lenalee!" called Lavi.
"Watch out!" cried Allen. Lenalee looked at him questioningly. "Akuma!"
She looked around. "There's no Akuma here. I told you before!" she giggled. "Are you joking?"
Allen stared at the ugly creature that was standing beside Lenalee. She turned to look at where Allen was looking.
"Oh he's not an Akuma!" Lenalee said. Lavi laughed too.
"I understand that you don't like him, but to call him an Akuma!" said Lavi. Allen looked back and saw Kanda standing there, leaning against a tree, glaring at him.
"Oh…but…" he frowned.
"Allen, just have fun!" said Lenalee, running down towards the water.
The ground and sky around Allen changed so suddenly that he staggered. Rubble lay in piles, bodies on top of that. Black and white dominated this world. Red was in it too, seeping down the rocks, the trees, filling the lake.
The colors blinded him.
"Allen!" He looked around and saw Lenalee and Lavi standing, staring at him.
"What happened to you?" asked Lavi.
"I don't—" he noticed that Lavi's arm was around Lenalee, and hers around Lavi.
"What?" asked Lenalee, looking at him, concerned.
"You…both of you?"
"Oh yes," said Lavi, something evil glinting in his green eye. He leaned forward and kissed Lenalee. She kissed him back, moving closer to him. Lavi's hand pulled her even closer.
The colors flashed. The black and white blinded him. He looked around yet again. The rubble pile and the bodies, the stone and the blood were the same. Except one thing. In the center, standing on top of the rubble and bodies, were two figures.
They stood close together, lips touching.
It was Lenalee and Lavi. They broke apart, looking over at Allen and grinned evilly. Their cloths were covered in blood, and he saw that Lenalee was holding a slender blade in her hand. It dripped blood.
"Mr. Walker! Mr. Walker!"
He opened his eyes and with a jolt, fell from the bed.
