Author's Note: Wow...I am soooo sorry...I noticed how long it's been since I've written something..I know this isn't much, but this is all I could come up with while on Benadril and listening to musicals for hours on end :P..Please enjoy this chapter and forgive me once again for how long it took me to get this up...
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter....Though I told Santa that's what I wanted this year..Dammit..
There is one girl and one boy
Both half blood by birth
Both robbed of someone they love
One has power to heal
The other the power to destroy
Together they will prevail
Separated they will destroy
Love is what they will find in one another......
Hermione woke in a panic. She kept hearing this deep voice repeating those words to her. She didn't know who it was, but it was familiar to her.
"Mione? Are you okay?"
She turned to look at Draco and smiled slightly.
"I'm fine. Just a bad dream."
His eyebrows furrowed in concern.
"Was it about Ron again?"
She shook her head.
"I'm fine. I promise."
He nodded as if he accepted her answer. She sighed in relief inwardly. She didn't want to tell him about the voice and what sounded like a prophecy. She knew there was more, but just as the voice would go to the next voice, she would wake up. She stood up and stretched. It was Christmas morning and the only ones up were her and Draco. She looked at the clock and saw it was 8 o'clock. She tiptoed to Harry and Ginny's room. She knocked softly before opening the door. Harry was on the bed, holding Ginny to his side. She smiled gently until she looked at his other hand. It was gripping the pendant she gave him tightly. As she looked closer, she noticed something like a bruise on his neck. She rushed over to him and shook him gently.
"Harry..Harry, wake up.."
Harry's eyes flew open and for a moment they were that beautiful cerulean blue color. Hermione gasped and jumped back from the bed. Harry blinked a couple of times and then his eyes turned back into their green color. Hermione held a hand to her chest as she began to breathe heavily. Harry sat up, rubbing his eyes.
"Hermione? Are you okay?"
She swallowed the lump in her throat and asked a question of her own.
"Why is there a bruise on your neck? That's too big to be Ginny's and too small to be Severus's. And since Draco was with me the whole time it couldn't have been him. Same with Narcissa."
Harry looked lost for a moment before he realized the dream he had last night.
"Oh..I had a bad dream.."
Realization dawned in her eyes.
"Ron has figured out a way to get past the pendant."
He nodded. He turned to look at Ginny as he felt the bed move. She sat up, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes. She smiled at Hermione.
"Happy Christmas Hermione."
Hermione smiled at Ginny.
"Happy Christmas to you, Ginny. Let's go open our presents."
Ginny nodded and smiled, jumping out her bed to get her robe. While she was in the bathroom, Hermione looked at Harry.
"We'll talk about this later."
He nodded. He walked to the bathroom as Ginny was coming out. Ginny furrowed her eyes at Hermione.
Hermione forced a smile and nodded her head.
"Go tell Draco to come here, would you?"
Ginny gave her look like she didn't quite believe it, but nodded anyways. She walked out of the room, closing the door silently. Hermione sighed silently. Ginny knew something was wrong. She wasn't a stupid girl, and soon she would want answers. Harry came out of the bathroom in a robe. He looked around the room before looking at Hermione again.
"Going to get Draco."
He nodded. He sat at the foot of the bed. Hermione went to sit beside him. Just as she sat down, Draco walked in with Ginny right behind him. Draco looked at Hermione then at Harry. He did a double take as he took a good look at the mark on his neck. He looked back at Hermione. She mouthed 'later' to him. He nodded. He walked over to Harry, inspecting his neck. He looked back up at Hermione.
"Why did you want me in here?"
She gave him a pleading look.
"Would you be able to fix it?"
Draco gave her a 'are you nuts?' look.
"No one is supposed to know I have this gift."
Hermione crossed her arms.
"Then tell me why the Dark Lord would want you so bad."
Draco nodded as if she had a point. Harry looked from one to the other.
"What's going on? What is he going to do?"
Draco looked at Harry. Harry turned his head and looked back at him.
"This won't hurt, okay?"
Harry arched a brow at him.
"And what exactly are you going to do?"
Draco looked up at Hermione then back at him.
"I'm going to heal the wound on your neck."
Harry looked down at Draco's hands.
"With what wand?"
"I don't need no stinking wand."
He raised his hand to his throat, laying it gently over the mark. He closed his eyes and called to the part of him that made him the way he was. As he heard a gasp from behind him, he knew his hand was glowing. He felt a hand close over his. He smiled as he felt the ring he gave her on his bare skin. As Harry gave a sigh of relief, he began to take his hand off of his neck. Just as he felt Hermione's hand leave his so he could remove his, he saw Harry's nightmare in his own mind's eye. His eyes shot open and he scrambled back from Harry. He didn't stop until he reached the wall, getting as far as Harry as he could. He looked down at his hand. He could still feel the evil on his hand. He looked down at his hand as though something were on it. He didn't notice Hermione in front of him, asking him what's wrong. He didn't see Harry's face in front of him, but he did see his eyes. And through Harry's eyes, Ron's. He saw Ron smile evilly and point at him. Within a blink of an eye, Death Eaters surrounded them. After that, everything happened fast. Harry and Ginny were stunned quickly. Draco was held at wand point, as well as Hermione. Hermione stared defiantly at the Death Eater who held the wand at her throat. Within a second, she was stunned then tossed over the Death Eater's shoulder. Draco called out for help. Footsteps running the the room was the last thing he heard before he too was stunned.
Severus heard the popping of someone Apparating from his home. He ran faster to the room where he heard Draco calling from. He flung the door open with a loud *BANG*. All he saw was Harry and Ginny, unconsious on the floor. He ran to Harry, reviving him. Harry blinked at him a couple of times before recognizing him. Snape took Harry's head in his hands.
"Where's Hermione?! Tell me what happened!"
Harry looked a bit dazed, but he began talking. He began with his nightmare, then Hermione coming to wake them and seeing the mark on his neck. When he got to the part of Draco healing him, he hesitated. Snape shook his head, trying to help him focus.
"Harry..You have to remember. I have to know where she is."
Harry looked up at him, horror on his face.
"They took her."
"Who? Who took her??"
Harry began to shake as he realized what he had done.
"The Death Eaters came and got her. Draco as well. Ron was able to see where they were through me...I think Draco saw him as he was healing me. They didn't come until after his hand had left my neck."
Snape let go of Harry. He stood up, slowly. The realization that she was gone was too much. He began to shake as the thought processed through his mind. She was gone. Just like her mother. Torn from his hands just as he had found her. His hand went to the locket she gave him not but hours ago. As his hand wrapped around it, he dropped to his knees and began to weep. He had finally found the family he never had..And it was taken from him once again...
