Disclaimer: Ok you all know the drill by now Harry Potter is owned by J.K not me and I'm not making any money from this it is all in good fun.
A/N: I'm reposting this and one other one shot both of them unbeta'd mainly because I quite like them, I hope you enjoy.
Beyond the Veil
Cold, so cold
I push myself off the floor and look around
Everything looks the same but it's all tinted black
"SIRIUS" yelled out an anguished voice.
I look behind me and see the battle continuing
I look to the source of the voice
I can see he's distraught and crying
"But why" I think "I'm still here"
I see Remus stop Harry from running towards me
"Why did he stop him?"
I stand watching as Dumbledore turns up and ties the rest of the death eaters up
I watch as Bella runs
"She killed him" said Harry getting away from Remus "She killed him, so I'll kill her"
"Killed" I thought, then it struck "The veil" I turned back helplessly watching.
I watched as Harry ran after Bella
I watched as Harry tried to use the Cruciatus on her
I watched as Harry was possessed by Voldemort.
And I watched as Dumbledore told Harry what he knew for years, the prophesy
And tears of anguish fell down my face
I felt useless
I had failed Lily
I had failed James
I had failed Remus
And most of all I had failed Harry
The tears stopped as two hands fell on my shoulders
I turned and faced the owners of them and my breath hitched
Tears came again
"I'm sorry so very sorry I failed you"
I reeled back
"You have not failed us so stop blaming your self and just watch him" said Lily with conviction.
I turned again and watched again
I watched Harry become depressed
I watched Harry promise to avenge me, his parents and Cedric
I watched Harry train to win
I watched him have a real girlfriend
I watched as the two of them grew and trained together
I watched as Harry and she eventually won
And finally I watched him have a family
I smiled; I hadn't failed them after all I had been the catalyst he had needed to win.
