-1Shimmering Memories

((A/N: Hey! It me again and I've been thinking on what I could do with my two stories 'Eyes of a unwanted girl' and ' Discovery of one's self' and I know I said that I didn't plan on doing another sequel, but guess what? I am, so sit back and enjoy))

((A/N: As I said in the bonus chapter of Discovery, Harry and Draco are married now. Somehow, I forgot to explain why Albus was back in his position as headmaster, but this story will, I am severely hoping, not take place around Hogwarts, so it doesn't matter))

Ok! Yes, there will be songs! Always have been, always been, only this time, I will be putting them at the end of the chapters, saves my sanity in many ways.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Harry Potter or any names associated with it and I do not own the SevenWaters trilogy or any name associated with it, BUT I do own any character I come up with, including the names and the environments.

This is normal talk

This is thought

This is wolf

This is raven

This is a vision

Chapter 2: The Pain

Lyra had yet to wake and this caused Finbar to worry, as it was too close to the full moon then he would have liked. She hadn't awoken yet, but still the visions came, sending her body into spasms. She never stopped crying, an unknown cause of grief racing through her mind.

Kyle sat by her bed, his cousin's hand tight in his.

' She's too young to deal with this. We're just kids.' He thought as the spasms started up again.

'The boy stood there, cowering before the massive man before him. He was being yelled at for not finishing the chores he had been set to do since dawn. He begged the man for more time, for the sun had not yet set and he could still finish them. The fat man grew angry and slapped him, sprawling him across the room, knocking his head against the wall. He was bleeding. The man became even angrier as the boy still begged. He marched towards him and dragged him into the hallway by his hair and through him into a little cupboard. The man screamed that he would receive no food for a week…'

" No…not him…" Lyra whispered out as she screamed as the pain ran through her body. " Leave him alone…get away…"

Harry had her other hand tight in his as well, sadness overwhelming his eyes.

" Lyra, please, you need to wake up. Your stronger then this." He pleaded with her.

She whimpered in her sleep and her head moved towards him, but she remained dead to the world.

' The man stared down with a snarl. The boy standing up to him glared back, earning him a curse that tore through his small body.

'You will learn to obey, Draco' The man said, his voice ice.

Draco convulsed in pain as he tried not to scream.'

Lyra bolted up screaming, two huge black wings hanging from her back. The tears were still running as her eyes remained a dead black. As if sensing her uncle at the foot of the bed, she reached until the blonde grasped her hand, tears in his own eyes. Slowly the tears ceased, the wings retracted and her eyes shifted back to normal.

" Uncle Draco?" She whispered out.

" Yes Lyra, I'm right here." Draco replied, pulling her into a gentle embrace.

He held the girl until she fell asleep again, only it seemed the vision marathon had passed for now. Only Harry remained in the room, Lyra's hand held in a weak grasp and his head resting on the bed, soft snores filling the room.

" Lyra." A voice whispered in her ear.

Said girl opened her eyes and sat up, looking around for the source of the soft voice. Seeing a figure on the balcony, she crawled out of bed, careful not to wake Harry. Once she was closer, she at once notice that the figure was that of a woman with long black hair that bore wild red streaks and had the deepest of eyes; auburn/ebony. She was smiling at Lyra who was walking closer.

" Mum?" She asked hoarsely.

" Yes. My dear Lyra, you've grown into a fine elf." Anne's spirit answered.

" How is this possible? What are you doing here?" Lyra said, standing next to her mother's ghostly figure.

" I am here because you need me. One cannot be a healthy seer is one is not trained. I had Liadan and I fear Finbar will be of little use. Sweetling, I am going to give you all the Liadan gave me. Close your eyes and open your mind." Anne ordered.

Lyra did as she was told and soon felt her mother's touch crisscross her mind until she felt a veil fall over her mind and a sense of peace over take her. When she opened her eyes, she saw Anne turned towards the room, a smile on her lips.

Lyra turned to see Harry awake, staring at his long dead sister. He took small footsteps forward until he stood five feet from the spirit.

" Anne?" He croaked out.

" Hello Harry." Anne responded, a smile on her face that seemed to light the room.

Harry's heart clenched and he felt the tears slide down his face. The last time he had seen that smile was the day before Conor died.

" Do not worry for me brother. I am at peace. The minute I was rejoined with Conor, I was happy again. I must ask you, who killed Conor?" Anne's voice was suddenly very tense.

" It was Ron Weasley. Turns out he and Hermione were Death Eaters. I swear, Severus nearly killed them. If the dementors didn't get them first, he would have." Harry replied.

" Weasel, I never did like him. Ha, yes, father was always very protective. I don't have much longer. I was only given enough time to give Lyra the information that Liadan gave me all those years ago. I love you Harry. And Lyra, no more chocolate cake on Draco's head, I fear I might see you all too soon if you do." Anne whispered.

" That bloody well wasn't my fault. Kyle wanted to learn it. If anyone should be to blame it's Uncle Jamie. I mean, bloody hell, he's the one who taught me everything he knew. He did this because Maggie refuses to let him teach Niamh and Aisling. I swear that man gets a twitch when he knows he is not allowed too but tries to anyway." Lyra huffed, giving a half hearted glare.

The sun was peeking over the horizon and Anne smiled before she faded, a secret wink towards Harry who smiled. Lyra made her way over to the photo album and sat back on the couch with it, a small smile on her lips.

" What a shame we all became such fragile, broken things.
A memory remains just a tiny spark.
I give it all my oxygen,
So let the flames begin.
So let the flames begin.

Oh, glory.
Oh, glory.
This is how we'll dance when,
When they try to take us down.
This is what will be.
Oh, glory.

Somewhere weakness is our strength,
And I'll die searching for it.
I can't let myself regret such selfishness.
My pain and all the trouble caused,
No matter how long
I believe that there's hope
Buried beneath it all and
Hiding beneath it all, and
Growing beneath it all, and...

This is how we'll dance when,
When they try to take us down
This is how we'll sing it.
This is how we'll stand when
When they burn our houses down.
This is what will be.
Oh, glory.

Reaching as I sink down into light.
Reaching as I sink down into light.

This is how we'll dance when,
When they try to take us down
This is how we'll sing it.
This is how we'll stand when,
When they burn our houses down.
This is what will be.
Oh, glory."

OOOO

' She ran as fast as her feet could carry her, never letting the pain stop her. If she did, she would allow him to catch her.

" I am the daughter of Conor Rache! I will not allow scum like him ruin me." Lyra hissed, stopping on the edge of the cliff that dropped into the icy water below.

Crashes had Lyra spinning around, facing the creature the had been chasing her.

" Oh mother, what did you do?" Lyra whispered.'

Lyra opened her eyes as blood red tears fell. A sudden anger raced through her mind and she sat up, walked to the balcony and collapsed as the moonlight pulsed around her.

" You lie silent there before me
your tears they mean nothing to me
the wind howling at the window
the love you never gave
I give to you

Really don't deserve it
but now there's nothing you can do
so sleep in your only memory of me
my dearest mother

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
goodbye
goodbye

So insignificant
sleeping dormant deep inside of me
are you hiding away lost
under the sewers
maybe flying high in the clouds
perhaps you're happy without me
so many seeds have been sown in the field
and who could sprout up so blessedly
if I had died
I would have never felt sad at all
you will not hear me say I'm sorry
where is the light
wonder if it's weeping somewhere

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye"
