Chapter 1: Taken
Luna climbed onto the train whilst trying to untangle her Butterbeer cork necklace. She wandered up the corridor, staring into each compartment. She smiled as she spotted Neville longbottom and Ginny Weasley,
“Hi Luna” Ginny said as she walked in.
“Hello Ginny, Hello Neville. Do you feel Wrackspurt in here?”
They ignored her and started to talk about Christmas, Luna settled down with the latest Quibbler.
3 Muggle’s were reported dead in their home in Surrey yesterday, several ‘men in black cloaks’ were reported leaving the Muggle’s home. They were obviously Death Eaters but Muggle police are baffled. The two parents and their 5-year-old child were reported to have been tortured repeatedly and have several marks and scars that show they may have been held for at least a week. As we know You-Know-Who is getting stronger and just cannot help showing off his newfound power. This just proves evermore that the time is nearing to fight. We must unite, as has been proved many-a-time if to stand-alone we are powerless, but if we stand together we are powerful. Powerful enough to destroy You-know-who once and for all.
Which leads to the main point, Harry Potter, without him we would have no chance. Just remember he is out there fighting for us. Trying to free us from this terrible beast, we will be free, we must trust Harry Potter and should we ever see him in his quest, to help and support him on his way. This being the darkest of times for all good witches and wizards of the world we need to remember that it’s not over yet and You-know-who is going down. Just think soon we can dance again, and no matter that some of us are as different as can be we need to be getting along to stand up and fight for what is right and good in this world. Think of your children who can either grow up in a world full of fear and hate or grow up in a good, happy world. It is time for YOU to stand up and fight. We are not alone and rebellion is near, be ready for it. But in the meantime, protect the surrounding Muggles, do what you can to save the innocent and know in your hearts when all seems lost that Harry, our last hope will come through and we all support him in his quest to defeat evil for good.
Luna sighed, those poor Muggles, What did they ever do? She worried about Harry for a while, She wondered if he was okay, it was nearly Christmas and she hadn’t heard a thing about him since September.
Neville spoke up
“Are you okay Luna?”
Luna realised they had been watching her for some time.
“Oh yes, I’m okay. I was just wondering about Harry”
Neville and Ginny’s faces both drooped slightly.
“He’ll be alright, He knows what he’s doing” Neville said with a brave stab at confidence.
“They lapsed into silence for a while after that, just listening to the train rattling beneath them. Suddenly Luna said
“You’re the new Harry Neville.”
Ginny and Neville looked at her confused.
“What do you mean ‘the new Harry’?”
“Well you’ve kind of taken over from him at Hogwarts, With the DA and leading the students into rebellion and things like that”
Ginny looked at her with sudden understanding
“She’s right Neville”
Luna smiled and looked out of the window she then turned around and looked at Neville again,
“Your nose is turning red, I expect it’s an allergic reaction to the Wrackspurt in here”
Neville just laughed her and said
“I’m glad you’re here Luna”
In true Luna fashion she disappeared into a dream-like state but only for a few minutes because the train came to a sudden stop.
“Some-ones coming on board” Ginny said, she crept to the corridor to see several Death Eaters combing each compartment of the train,
“They’re looking for some-one”
All three of them pulled their wands out Neville nodded to them and they walked out of their compartment
“OI, BIGHEAD! LOOKING FOR SOME-ONE?”
The two Death Eaters heads snapped upwards simultaneously, the first one curved his mouth into a sick, evil grin that showed off his grotesque teeth.
“Actually yes” Before anyone could do anything they both shouted
“STUPEFY” And the force of the double spell sent Luna flying backwards. Ginny shouted out Luna’s name as Neville started firing spells at the Death Eaters. Another Death Eater appeared out of No-where behind them and grabbed Luna by her hair and started dragging her down the corridor. Ginny fired spell after spell but he just blocked them with a casual flick of his wand. Taking Luna with them, the three Death-Eaters disapperated.
Luna woke up 3 hours later in cold damp cellar, she sat up and rubbed her head trying to determine why her white-blonde hair was so sticky, she wiped the floor but it was dry. She ran her fingers through it properly this time coming out with something red and sticky she decided it was blood, though it was hard to tell in the gloom. She tried to stand up but just felt dizzy so she stayed where she was and tried to decide exactly where she was and how she got here. She thought back to the last thing she could remember, She had been on the train and it stopped and . . . she couldn’t remember anything after that. She looked at her surroundings, her eyes trying to get used to the lack of light she saw a pile of rags in the corner and a bowl of water and an empty plate. There was also the odd bit of rubbish on the floor but it was hard to decide what they were.
She decided to try stand up again but just as she was trying to shift herself into a better position the pile of rags started to move. A hoarse voice came from within it
“Stay where you are”
A man started to unfold himself, he had obviously been here a while, and obviously not very well looked after. He had a long dirty white beard and his eyes had large dark circles around them. He had so many cuts and bruises on his arms and face; he looked like he had just come from battle. He got up and slowly hobbled to the water bowl, he picked it up and started to bring it over, his hand was shaking so much that a lot of the water was going on the floor. She took the bowl gratefully and drank from it.
Afterwards she felt so much better that she tried to stand up.
“Sorry, do I know you?”
The man moved into one of the few patches of light, and Luna suddenly recognised him.
“Mr Ollivander! I thought you were taken?”
“I was, I still am and so are you my dear”
Luna’s smile at recognising him faltered,
“Oh, The Death Eaters, on the train. They were there for me.”
She said it so simply that Ollivander looked shocked.
“You are not worried? Or the news has not sunk in?”
”Neither, Where exactly am I?”
Luna sat down again on the hard stone floor.
“Why are you here Luna? What could You-Know-Who possibly want with you?”
“That, Mr Ollivander is what I’m trying to understand.” She sat on the floor willing her brain to work. “I suppose it might be because of what I’ve been doing at Hogwarts but if it was that Ginny and Neville would be here.”
She frowned, then her brow smoothed out in understanding,
Ollivander looked at her questioningly
“Daddy’s magazine was against You-Know-Who, they want him to stop. Well and he has also found new evidence on the crumpled-horn snorcack. So they might want me to stop him releasing that.”
“A crumpled-horn what?”
“Snorcack, daddy and I go hunting for them in the summer holidays.”
“Oh, well . . .”
His speech was interrupted by the sounds of some one coming down the stairs.
“Back away from the door” a scared voice came from above, soon the pale face of Draco Malfoy appeared.
“Oh, Hello Malfoy”
Draco sneered at Luna,
“Great Loony’s awake, well I expect you know where you are”
“Your house, Its very dark down here, and I’m hungry” She said whimsically thinking of the lunch trolley she missed on the train.
He sneered at her again
“You’ll get food when you get food Loony, and while you’re here you might as well be useful”
“When can I leave?”
“When The Dark Lord says so, now as I was saying you will be put to work”
A new look had appeared in Luna’s eyes, it was one of rebellion
“I’m not working for you Malfoy” She said spitting out his name in a very un-Luna like fashion. Draco sneered again,
“Fine, I’m sure my aunt will be pleased.”
He left the room and locked the cellar doors behind him. Very soon maniacal laughter emanated from the floor above the cellar and some one was running down the stairs,
“Loony Luna, I’m coming to get you! Oh, I do love fresh meat!!!” A woman with sunken eyes and wild black hair appeared at the door. Luna recognised her from the ministry and the Wanted posters in Hogsmede. It was Bellatrix Lestrange.She blasted the metal gate open, grabbed Luna by her bloody, blonde hair and dragging her up the stairs into a huge room. Draco Malfoy had his back to Luna and was staring out of the huge window. His parents were wandering around glassy eyed, lost in their own thoughts.
"Now little girly, i'm giving you a chance. You help us out and we help you out."
Luna looked up at the crazy, wild woman who was standing above her and said
Bellatrix's eyes narrowed and she bellowed
"Fine, you had your chance. CRUCIO!"
Luna writhed around the floor in absaloute agony, sreaming louder then she had ever screamed before. After two or three minutes of this torture Bellatrix stopped and Luna sat up breathing heavily.
"Now, Now little girly are you willing to be a nice little baby-boo" Bellatrix said in a simpering voice
Luna looked up at her and smiled slightly as if amused.
"Oooh, and Draco here told us you were a placid little thing. Shame," Bellatrix examined her slightly more closley "YOU! You were at the ministry, you were one of Potter's friends" She spat out Harry's surname as if it was poison.
"Don't talk about Harry that way. He's my friend" Luna said, trying to get to her feet.
"Ooooh! What you gonna do blondie, With no wand against me" She laughed "CRUCIO!"
Luna was once again on the floor, Writhing in agony. Untill a voice cut in.
"Now, now Bella lets not play with our food" A man with snake-like features had swept into the room. He had almost red eyes and slits for nostrils. He wore a long black cloak and Luna watched his feet as he swept around the room.
"Who is this?" He said to no-one in particular.
"The Lovegood girl" Bellatrix said
"Ah yes, Shame, I hear your a very talented witch. Ravenclaw i believe. Shame, we could use people like you girl."
Luna looked up at Lord Voldemort with complete and utter hatred, A look that didn't often grace her whimsical features.
"I would never support You, And my father will never back down, I will always Support Harry"
Lord Voldemort tilted his head slightly as if considering something.
"Well, I suppose that was only to be expected. Bella take her back to the Cellar. Maybe send her father vial of her blood. No body parts though Bella. She might come in handy."
Bellatrix almost threw her down the cellar step and spat at luna
"I'll see to you later"
Luna sat down in the corner and considered what had just happened. She had said No to the most evil wizard of all time and come away still alive. She thought about her father. He would be so upset now. No-one would come home to him, No-one will be there to fish Fresh-water plimpies or pick the drigibles. Luna cried
Soon Ollivander came over.
"Are you okay my dear."
"I'm upset." She said through thick tears.
"Its okay. It'll be over soon"
Luna seemed to get into a routine over the next week. Get up, Wait for food. Play games with Mr Ollivander. Get dragged upstairs to be tortured by Bellatrix and sometimes Malfoy. Apparently he needed toughening up, It was alway worse watching Malfoy try to torture her, Luna felt sorry for him. She felt that he was getting tortured more then she was. Once she was tortured she would try and find things to do in the Cellar, or she and Mr ollivander would tell each other stories.
But after about a week it all changed. Bellatrix seemed more pleased then ever and Lord Voldemort was be waiting fto see her. He was seated at the head of a large, black table fingering his wand and glancing at it every now and again
"Hello Luna" He said
Luna lkoked at him with defiance in her eyes.
"Well,say hello you ungrateful girl" Bellatrix screeched
Luna looked at her then back to Lord Voldemort.
"Do you remeber a week ago when you said your father would never stop supporting Harry in his magazine" Luna Nodded "Well, look at this"
He held up a copy of the Quibbler with the words
Blazoned across the top and a picture of Harry. Luna opened her mouth then closed it again, with tears in her eyes.
"No" she whispered.
Lord Voldemort smiled.
"Now, I promised we would send you home if he did this. But i did something very bad, I lied. Because you wll go back to causing havoc under Snapes new order, and you father will go back to printing things in support of our little friend HArry. So you will be staying here."
Luna looked up at him and said
"Your lying, My father would never write that in our magazine"
"Oh, but he did. For you my dear. Now go back to your cellar like a good little girl and Draco can get your food and water"
Draco scuttled out of the room whilst Lucius Malfoydragged her back to the cellar.Just as they were leaving the room Lord Voldemort said,
"Lucius, Bring me Ollivander"
Soon Luna was left alone, she couldn't believe it, Her father couldn't have written that. He must be lying, Just to control her. Draco walked in with a plate with a small portion of bread and a bit of cheese.
He looked up at her, His mouth set in a firm line and his sunken eyes worn and emotionless.
"For what?" He sneered slightly
"FOr you having to be tortured like that"
"What are you on about?" He sneer was softening slightly and a sadness started to creep into his eyes.
"Your aunt and You-Know-Who, They shouldn't make you do this to me."
"Your worrying about my . . ." He struggled for the right word "Innocence, when you have just found out your father betrayed what you believe in"
"He did it for me, because he loves me. How can your parents love you and let then treat you like that?"
Draco's head snapped up at that,
"You don't know what your talking about Lovegood. So don't pretend you do." And with that he swept out of the cellar.
Luna stood up as Mr Ollivander staggered down the steps looking worse then ever. It was then Luna decided that as soon as she could she would get her revenge on all those people that had hurt her father, Mr Ollivander and even Malfoy. She would make sure they go what they deserved but for now she had to tend to Mr Ollivander and try to find a way to escape.
