They put me in a small room with only a bed in it. They didn't give me anything for my wounds and barely fed me any food. I didn't fear for my life as much as I did for my baby. My stomach did hurt from time to time from it moving around a lot but soon the baby calmed down. There wasn't even a toilet and I had to hold everything in until they let me use one.
I gripped my necklace constantly, remembering how that brought Ron to me before when I needed him. But it didn't work, either he couldn't feel it or they used a spell to keep him away. Whatever the case was, I was caught between on what to do with myself. I, of course, wanted him to come and save me but if he did, they might get his hands on him and kill him. And also the others. I'd rather die than to have that happen.
As I sat on the other side of the room as I heard the door open behind me. I didn't bother to look as I figured that they were leaving me some more shit they called food.
He ran up to me and lifted me in his arms. He carried me out of the room as I clutched onto him tightly. This had to be a dream; he couldn't be here with me right now. I noticed there were bodies on the floor of the Deatheaters that captured me and Hermione was at the end of the hall. How could I not hear them fighting?
"Kris, oh my god!" Hermione exclaimed as she took off her cloak and placed it on me.
"How did you....?"
Hermione fell down to the ground screaming as Kelly came up from behind her with her wand. She immediately pointed it at Ron but he didn't put me down.
"Give her to me."
"No," Ron said simply.
"You want her to die?"
"Do you want to die?"
"How dare you!" Kelly raised her wand and prepared to shout a curse but then she fell to the ground.
I looked down and saw that Hermione had gripped on Kelly's ankle and pulled her down. She reached for her wand but Kelly was too quick for her.
"NNNNOOOOO! HERMIONE!" I screamed as the green spark hit her chest and she fell to the ground. This can't be happening, I knew what that spell meant but Hermione couldn't be dead. She just couldn't be.
I lunged at Kelly, causing Ron to drop me and fall right on top of her. I slapped her wand away as I beat her in the head silly. Everything started to go dark and I realized that I was still weak and used the last of my energy on Kelly. She was unconscious after a while so I looked up at Ron and he picked me up again without saying anything.
"What about Hermione?" I asked tears forming in my eyes as I looked at her lifeless body.
Ron closed his eyes and stayed silent. I soon felt a jolt in my stomach and then nothing, I had fainted.
I woke up feeling very sweaty everywhere. I saw that Ron was sleeping right next to me like he did when I got shot. I shook him slightly and he woke up smiling at me.
"Yeah, I don't feel that way. Where am I?"
"At the hospital."
"What happened to Hermione?"
"She's in the other room right now. It turns out that the girl Kelly didn't know the killing curse good enough to actually kill, but enough to do some damage."
My eyes swelled up in tears, everyone was getting hurt just because of me.
"Don't cry, everyone else is fine. Harry is outside in the lobby and Draco is in the room with his fiancé."
"How long was I gone?"
"Too long. About three months"
"Three months? That means that I'm six months pregnant." I felt over my stomach but noticed how flat it was. That didn't fell right. Women six months pregnant don't have flat bellies.
He looked down and said, "I'm sorry Kris, but you lost the baby."
"No...." I whispered as the tears came down my cheeks.
"When I brought you back you started to bleed a lot down there. And the healer found out that the beatings affected the baby deeply and scarred it. There was no way we could save it."
"But..... the baby was just fine before you got me.... how is it possible....?"
"I'm so sorry, Kris."
I looked into Ron's eyes. He had to be joking, our child couldn't be dead. But the tears in his eyes said it all. Our baby was gone forever. Right before I broke down he pulled me into his chest and let my cries of pain flow into his body. It wasn't long before he broke down with me.
I stood outside our apartment wearing a white, thin sun dress with matching flats. The scars on my arms and legs were gone thanks to the potion the Healer gave me. But it didn't get rid of a few on my stomach and back. The ones on my back didn't bother me but the ones on my stomach reminded me of what Ron and I had lost.
It was slightly sunny but had a nice cool breeze come in from the west. My flimsy dress easily moved with the wind along with my hair. I stared as the sun lit up the sky with a fusion of colors while it set.
It was so beautiful.
I could hear footsteps walking behind me and I knew it was Ron. He wrapped his arms around my waist and rested his chin on my shoulder.
"You feel a little cold," He stated.
"When will you come inside?"
I turned around and raised my arms to his shoulders. He placed his hands on my back and pulled me into his chest. This was the first time we've held each other since I was kidnapped. After I lost the baby, I closed off myself from everyone, especially Ron. I was afraid at first that my cutting him off would affect our relationship but he stood by me and gave me the space I needed.
"I love you Kris," Ron said hugging me tighter.
"I know, I love you too."
We held onto each other until the sun was gone and the air chilled. Without warning Ron lifted me up in his arms and walked towards the apartment.
"How's Hermione?" I asked.
"Getting better by the second."
I smiled slightly. Even though the killing curse didn't work to it's full potential, she was still in a coma for a while. Then when she woke up, she was very weak and could barely move. But with the help of her Healer and especially Draco, she was recovering.
I stopped smiling thinking that she was hurt because of me. Everything bad that happened to them was my fault. All because I fell in love with someone seven years younger than me.
"What's wrong?" Ron asked putting me down inside the doorway.
I only stared at him. I could never lie all that well and I would never dream of lying to Ron. But I couldn't tell him what I was thinking.
"Please Kris," He placed his soft hand on my cheek and I closed my eyes.
"Make love to me Ron," I said softly.
"Kris...." I silenced him by kissing him softly.
"Please... I need you."
And with that he pulled me close to him and kissed me deeply. I moaned softly, missing the taste and smell of him. He lifted me up and walked quickly to the bedroom, not bothering to turn on any lights. He laid me gently on the bed and lifted my dress over my head. I closed my eyes and savored the feelings that Ron and me experienced for the rest of the night. Physically and emotionally.
I lied awake in the early hours of the morning, listening to Ron's gentle snoring. I wanted to get up, no, needed to get up but I felt too comfortable in his arms. Plus even though I knew he was asleep, if I got up he would wake up.
I quietly and tenderly moved away from his arms and to the edge of the bed. His eyes opened slightly as he pulled me back to him.
"Where are you going?" He asked half sleep.
"To the bathroom," I lied. And it hurt really badly to do that.
"Okay," He said in the cutest matter and kissed me on the forehead. I got out of the bed quickly before I punked out and stayed with him. I quickly went into the bathroom and picked up my small duffel bag with the necessities that I needed. Before I left the apartment I placed the necklace he gave me and a letter right beside him on the bed. I looked away knowing that I would stay if I lingered any longer.
I walked out of the apartment Ron and I shared and into the car. I didn't bother looking back at what I was leaving and made my way down the road to my future.
I can't be around you anymore. All I cause you is pain and suffering and I can't hurt you anymore. I must stay away from you so you can have a normal life. Well, a normal, magical life. Hopefully you will move on and find someone else to be with. I know you must be thinking I don't care but I care so much about you, I know this is the only way for you to be safe. I am giving you back the necklace because I know you will use it to try and find me. I kept the ring though because I need some part of you with me. I hope you're not mad about that. Tell everyone what happened and tell them I love them. Also tell Hermione that I'm sorry for almost getting her killed. I love you Ron. Please don't come looking for me, I don't want you to waste your time when you could be living your life. I will love you forever no matter what you do.
With all my heart and soul,
