Background: Font color:
Curses, hexes, and spells illuminated the fallen, the falling and the standing. Neville, had just come out of a duel with Goyle Jr, with Goyle lying motionless on the floor. Not that Neville had killed him or used Dark magic, Goyle was petrified and couldn't move.
Bellatrix stalked the battle picking off unwary defenders of the Light. She spotted a confident looking boy and headed towards him. The boy's wand ignited and she was surprised to see that it was Neville Longbottom.
"So Longbottom, you are still alive?" Bellatrix taunted.
"Yep," came the reply before a slashing curse flew past Bellatrix's arm.
"Now, now Longbottom you shouldn't be here you could get hurt," mocked Bellatrix in a babyish voice.
Neville calmly side-stepped the Cruciatus Curse and flung a disarming jinx towards his foe.
Bellatrix flicked her wand almost lazily and Neville was flung backwards. Neville scrambled to his feet and pointed his wand directly at her heart. He muttered a curse under his breath and immediately Bella started to scream in agony.
"That's not even the Cruciatus curse Bellatrix." Came Neville's voice.
Bella pointed her wand at Neville and muttered a curse under her breath. A hugh cut crossed Neville's right cheek and another ripped his robes over his chest.
"Furnunculus, Densaugeo, Expelliarmus, Incendio" roared Neville.
Bella was able to parry the first three spells but was hit square in the chest by Neville's Incendio. Bella crawled about, screaming in pain, to try and stop the flames and only stopped the flames by casting a water charm on herself.
Neville kept his wand pointed at Bella and walked casually over to her. He picked up her wand and threw it into the darkness. He released Bella from his curse and told her to stand up.
Bella looked warily at Neville and shot a remark at him.
"You don't have the guts to get revenge for what I did to your parents."
"Really?" replied Neville calmly.
"You're weak just like your mother and father. You Grandmother didn't put up much of a fight either; come to think of it."
Neville's face contorted with anger. He raised his wand. Bella looked shocked and scared for a moment before a sneer played across her face.
"I dare you," she sneered.
Neville roared one word.
Bella screamed in agony. She had never felt anything like it in her life. Even when she had accidently disobeyed the Dark Lord, he had never put her in so much pain. She screamed herself hoarse and after the curse had been lifted she begged for forgiveness.
Neville thought about giving her to the Ministry for a moment, before anger flooded him once more.
"You never let my family go, so why should I do the same for you."
A bolt of blinding green light hit Bella directly in the chest and she crumpled to the floor. Lifeless.
Neville walked over to Bella's lifeless form and kicked it softly. It had fully sunk in that his parent's torturer had finally been stopped. He picked up her wand pocketed it and turned on his heel, to re-join the battle.
