Warnings: Minor language?
Author's Notes: I wrote this during AP Language as part of a character study thing for extra credit. It's really repetitive for a reason, and I intentionally leave out names until the end because I felt like the names took away from it and the confusing parts of it are a part of the plan. Anyways, I'm rambling, so I'm just going to shut up and let you read.
He looked for them for weeks. He looked and looked and looked. He tried to go back- he immediately regretted leaving.
How could he? How could leave his best friend- his brother- and the girl he loved?
They were his whole world and he left them alone. He left them alone to struggle through the hunt for the Horcruxes.
And he searched desperately for the family he had abandoned. He searched and searched and searched and he hardly rested, for they were not resting either, so why should he?
And then, he found his brother. His brother appeared, black hair glowing in the moonlight. His brother stripped and jumped in the lake and he held his breath, because his brother wasn't coming back up, and really, the younger teen should have come up by now. Air bubbles were escaping desperately and he was scared. And then… the bubbles disappeared.
And so, he jumped in, fully clothed, and he pulled him out. He retrieved the Sword of Gryffindor. And then, he spoke.
"Bloody hell, Harry."
