Chapter 1: Vanessa Dorea Potter
My name is Vanessa Dorea Potter and I am the sister of James Potter and I was the sort of sister of Sirius Black, well not anymore, you'll see why.
I am supposed to be 22 years old but i died a 2 years ago when i was 20. I left behind a husband, a son, a brother and a best friend. My husband was none other than Sirius Black we had a son called Charlie and my brother was James Potter ( as you know ), and my best friend was Lily Potter. Even though i'm dead i can still share some memories with you, I will show you, me annoying my brother and Sirius, how Lily and James got together: even though she hated him. And ofcourse the Slytherins, the Order and ofcourse my death. So here you go, see my life from the safety of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to the horrible depth of death and destruction of the Wizarding world, first,I know it's in the wrong order but i'd like to show you my death first, then my years of Hogwarts leading up to my death, so that even though you'll see the horror first by the end you'll see how brilliant my life was . . .
The scene of Hogsmeade was covered by smoke, so dense you couldn't see a thing, only if it was right up close. A loud explosion went off and through the smoke I could see orange, one of the Hogsmeade shops were on fire.
'Why are the Death Eater's here?' I shouted to James.
'Dumbledore!' He said simply.
'Nessie I don't think you should be here, what about Charlie?!' Sirius shouted to me.
'He's with Lily, he'll be fine!' me and Sirius had been through this before.
'You should be with him!' James shouted as another explosion went off, I could see another shop on fire.
'James! You're the one who should be home with Lily, she's the one who's 2 months pregnant!' I called to him, he was so annoying sometimes, always siding with Sirius.
'Did you here that?' Sirius called suddenly.
'What?' I asked, fear taking over me.
'It sounded like more people were appa - Holy crap!' He shouted and I turned to see what he was looking at, the smoke had become clear and I could see about 40 hooded figures swarming Hogsmeade, I could see them sending spells into the crowd of students.
'We have to go now!' I screamed, I wouldn't let innocent children be killed.
'No Nessie, we have to wait for the signal!' Sirius shouted, grabbing my arm.
'I don't give a shit about the signal!'
'Mad Eye will kill us, if we disobey orders! And besides I'm not leting my baby sister go without me and Padfoot!' James shouted.
'I am not your baby sister, there's only a minute between us!'
'There's the signal!' Sirius screamed, a red spark went into the air and the Order members ran forward to meet the Death Eaters.
James nodded to me and Sirius then we ran forward into Hogsmeade. The Hogwarts students screams punctured through the air and they ran far and wide. I screamed as I saw a group of Death Eaters crowded round the students, torturing them. My wand slashed through the air ferociously that the Death Eaters fell with pain, even though I hadn't used the Cruciatus curse before. I turned back to try and see James and Sirius, James came running out of the smoke, clutching his face which was covered in blood.
'what happened?' I screamed.
'Voldemort!' he winced. Suddenly, a bang went off it blew back me and James, I fell on something hard and long, a human body. It was a little girl, she looked only in her third year, she had a tortured expression on her face.
'James!' I shouted getting up,'James where are you?' But I saw the sight of him, he was on the floor, half of his body was now covered in blood.
'James, you need to get back to Lily! Can you stand up?' He got up and looked at her disbelievingly, 'You really think I'm going to leave you here?'
'Yes! Please James, you're hurt!' I growled.
'Just stay safe, I can't lose you aswell' I knew what he was referring to mum and dad's death. He turned on the spot and vanished.
'Nessie, where's James?' Sirius voice yelled out, I whipped round to see him running towards me, not a scar on his body or a hair out of place.
'Gone, he was badly injured!'
'Sirius, come out and play!' a taunting voice called. Bellatrix Lestrange stood there, wand ready.
'Bellatrix!' Sirius growled.
'Sirius stay safe, I'll be right back! I love you!' I had to say it just incase. My only thought was to get all the kids safe so I ran into Honeydukes.
'Come with me! I'll get you back to Hogwarts!' I yelled to the students. They followed me to the celler and I lifted one of the floor boards and ushered the uncertain children into it. I ran out again, Sirius was still duelling Bellatrix but I had no time to go to him. It was now time to get Voldemort back for injuring my brother. He was very easy to find, he was just standing there looking as though nothing was wrong, this really infuriated me. I sent a killing curse at him, but it missed.
'Ah, who is this?' he hissed and smiled a lipless smile.
'You're worst nightmare!' I hissed back.
'No, no, no you're Vanessa Potter. Why I just had the pleasure of meeting you're brother' he laughed,'I've heard about you, you were the one who hexed all them Slytherins in, what was it your second year?, very good at duelling, pureblood aswell, you would make a brilliant Death Eater'.
'I'll join you when hell freezes over!' I screamed and then the duel began, I managed to weave and duck his curses, to his frustration, one of his killing curses missed me and hit an old man.
'You're sick, you don't care for the people you kill, for their families that will be torn apart!' I shouted.
'Avada Kedavra!' he shouted but I ducked out the way,'Crucio!' I jumped out the way again. I duelled him for what seemed like hours, most fights were finished, leaving only one of the duellers alive. I didn't realise that the Death Eater's were surrounding me and Voldemort said something I couldn't here. But I figured it out as they all screamed,'Crucio!' I felt pain I had never thought was possible, I couldn't breathe, it was killing me slowly, painfully. I felt myself slowly going insane, I wanted to die, I wanted the pain to end. I screamed a horrible hair - raising scream, I couldn't see anything as I opened my eyes. I could only see a blur.
'Nessie!' I heard Sirius scream, he was running towards me Bellatrix right behind him.
'Sirius! No leave! go!' I screamed out, he took out his wand ready to use it, but I gave him a pleading look, he didn't budge I was surprised Bellatrix hadn't done anything to him. I pointed my wand at him, a white light came out and Sirius was gone, I made him disapparate.
'Why don't we put Nessie out of her misery?' Voldemort asked his followers, over my screams of pain as Bellatrix cackled.
'Avada Kedavra!' I heard then my vision was swallowed by green, I felt no pain as it hit me, I was glad it was over, I looked up to see I was in Godrics Hollow. Was I dead? I had to find out so I walked to James and Lily's cottage. I rushed to the door, I tried to turn the handle but my hand went straight through. I wasn't a ghost, I was solid, I knew that I could feel my skin so I wasn't transparant but I could go through things. I glided through the door, where Sirius, James and Lily were. Sirius was being held back by James.
'I need to go back!' Sirius screamed.
'Padfoot what happened?' Lily asked, wide eyed and terrified.
'Nessie's still there!'
'What do you mean, Padfoot? - Why is she still there?' James cried.
'Voldemort and the Death Eater's!' he choked.
'WHAT?' James screamed letting go of Sirius. Sirius ran out and disapparated.
'James I'm sure she's alright' Lily tried to reassure him but she was shaking and was very pale. There was a 'crack' outside, followed by a scream. Sirius had burst into the cottage, holding my lifeless body. My face was worse than I could of imagined : My mouth was gaping open as though I was in mid-scream, my eyes were full of pain and my body was contorted weirdly.
'No, no, NO!' James screamed, collapsing on the floor, Lily screamed and held the table for support.
Sirius collapsed on the floor, hugging my lifeless body.
'No! Please! Please, wake up Nessie!' Sirius screamed.
'Dada' A boy's voice called and a hansome little boy entered the room,'Dada where's moma?'
'Charlie, mummy's in heaven' Lily said, trying to hide the tears from the little boy.
