AN: Sorry if I took long. It's just that I'm kinda running low on inspiration for writing. (And it's getting annoying). So I hope this chapter makes up for it. Enjoy.
Harry woke up in a cold sweat. For the umpteenth number of times he couldn't remember. It was always the same nightmare. His parents, Cedric, and Sirius. It would be too much. Seeing them die again and again in front of his eyes.
Then his thoughts faded elsewhere. It took him a minute to realize where he was. He hadn't wakened up in that "Room" in Number Four. He was on the floor of some house. He suddenly jumped to his feet, wand pulled out. He scanned the room for any threats but found none. He looked around. The house had looked like it had been deserted for awhile. Then pain started to set in. his ribs started to hurt. His breath started to sound shallow. The gash on his forehead has started to bleed a little again. But thankfully there was only a dull pain he felt in the back in the head where the bottle struck him.
Where in the name of hell did peirs get that bottle? Harry thought.
Then he gasped in pain. His ribs felt either cracked or bruised, he couldn't tell. He had reached for the recliner that was to his left and sat down. A fine film of dust rose as he sat. It caused him to sneeze. That caused even more pain.
"Bloody hell. I'd never thought I'd be glad for wanting to be in the hospital wing." He gasped.
He shifted. And as he shifted there was a soft thud. He looked over the couch to see a wand, not his, on the carpeted floor.
He reached for it. It was dark colored wood. 16 inches, but he couldn't tell what kind of core it was.
As the pain subsided in the area near Harry's ribs, Harry pocketed the wand. There was a draft of cold air. Harry's curiosity had won the best of him. He wiped the blood from his forehead and limped towards the opening hallway. He looked towards his right. At the end of the hall there was a door blasted opened. But it had looked like it was done a very long time ago. But it still had Harry on edge. So he decided not to take any chances in his current state. He pulled out his wand.
Nothing happened. Meaning he was alone. At least that calmed him a bit. And then he felt a draft of air come from behind him. He turned to see a staircase. And again his curiosity won. He painfully and slowly. Then he reached the top. He looked to his left. A hallway with closed doors. Then the draft hit him again. He looked to his right. The hallway ended not two feet away from him before it opened into the outside. Everything that was supposed to be there was gone. No walls. Just open air. The only thing that gave resignation of walls being there was the skeleton of the door ways. Harry limped his way into that area. When he got closer he saw the skeleton of a cradle. It looked weird. The cradle looked like it was blown outwards from the inside. And on the floor underneath the bed was a plush leg sticking out. Harry painfully got on his knees and reached for the toy. Once he pulled it out he realized what it was.
It was a plush stag. Prongs
Then it all hit harry. This was the very place that ended his freedom of having a normal childhood. (Or as normal it can get for a wizard.)
He was home. He was in Godric's Hollow.
The order was hysteric. They were searching every possible location that Harry knew. Dumbledore had ordered the weasly's to check the burrow and every surrounding places for Harry. He had sent Kingsly Shacklebolt along with Hermione, Ron, the Twins and young Ginny to search Hogsmeade. McGonagall to check every nook and crany of Hogwarts castle. And Mungdungus Fletcher to search all of privet drive. The Headmaster himself had looked all over diagon ally. And yet no clue as of where young Harry was. Then a thought came to mind.
"Miss Tonks!" he called.
Then, in tragic way, she came running down the stairs falling down the last flight. But that didn't seem to stop her because she immediately got back on her feet.
"You called sir?"
He nodded "Yes, I want you to go to Godric's Hollow. Check everywhere in which Harry would hide. You may want to start at the potter's old cottage."
She nodded in a reply. She walked out of the doors on Grimmauld. She walked deep into the park in front of the house and dissaperated.
Harry felt more depressed than ever. He was lying in the remains of his old room. The room in which started a war. All because he wouldn't just die. Then a song came into mind. It was one that Dudly usually had blaring in his room.
Wake in a sweat again
Another days been laid to waste
In my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like ill never leave this place
There's no escape
I'm my own worst enemy
I've given up
I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
Tell me what the fucks wrong is wrong
Harry felt that this song had described his life. Every day he wakes up in a cold sweat. All because of nightmares. He's his own worst enemy because everyone he knows is in danger just by knowing him. And every time he loses someone close to him he feels like there's something fucking wrong with him.
The only thing that he wants is peace. But that'll only come if he's dead. Maybe that's it. If he's dead. He quickly ran; or rather limp quickly, to get his bag that he left downstairs. He climbed back to his room. He opened his bag, pulled out a notebook, found a pen and wrote a letter.
I'm sorry. I couldn't take all of this anymore. I have suffered enough. I have no reason to keep on fighting. It's all too much. Consider this my will because I leave everything I own to all my friends. I leave Remus Lupin in charge of dividing it all up.
To Ron I say sorry. I wish I could have been stronger not to do this but this is good bye mate. You were truly the best mate I ever had.
To Hermione I say sorry. I wish I was stronger but I'm afraid I was always weak. But it was your book smarts that helped me stay alive. And to this I thank you.
To Ginny I say. I'm sorry. I never had any real feelings towards you. Only because I thought you were in love with The Boy Who Lived. Bye
And finally to Nymphadora Tonks. I Am Truly Sorry. I have had a secret that I've held in for awhile. I Love you. Not as a friend. I Love You Nym. I have ever since I met you last year. You may think otherwise. But I am telling the truth. This was no puppy-love crush. No this was bigger than that. Even if you don't love me I will always love you.
Harry slipped the letter into his Jacket pocket. He limped to the ledge. He glanced one last look at the surrounding town. This would be his last image to ever see. And it was ironic. The Boy Who Lived to die in the place he was created.
He was about to jump when he heard her angelic voice.
"And what do you think you're doing.?"
He turned to see Tonks there. She had a scared look on her face.
"I'm saving every one the trouble."
She had a confused look.
"Of dying for me. I'm the one that needs to die. Oh and Nym. I'm sorry for Sirius."
And then he took a step forward. The only thing he felt was her body on his and her Screaming Harry's name. Then came darkness.
