Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
everyone’s here
everybody’s watching you now
everybody waits for you now
What happens next?


Harry lay on the hard ground, wishing the day was over. The low clatter of feet, the loud voices of the students and the ramblings of teachers lay forgotten in his head.  His hands lay beside him, smudged with blood. He wasn’t there anymore. He didn’t exist. The night before, he had lost the closest thing to his parents. Sirius. Harry closed his eyes and inside, everything hurt.

A hot tear rolled down his cheek. He pushed it away. The door opened and Ron crept in. “Um Harry, dinner starts soon” he said. Harry didn’t reply. Ron sighed and left. As old memories of Sirius he had filed away in his brain began to float around inside of his head, he lost it. He began to cry, fully. He didn’t realise a small person had walked in and lay beside him, on the hard stone ground. 

“He’s gone, forever” Harry choked. Luna sat up and attempted to pull   Harry into a sitting position. “Sshhh, it’s ok” she said in a light voice. Harry heard a small, thin voice inside his muggy, dirty thoughts. Harry raised his tear-stained face. He looked at Luna’s fourteen year old face. Of her mother, and how she had dealt with the loss. Nothing mattered any more, though. 

 
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before


 

Harry felt Luna’s hand grip his. He let her hold it. More tears ran down his face. “I know how you feel” Luna said sadly. Harry heard what she said, and it cleared a small path in his muggy, slushy brain. 

From beside him, Luna still kept hold of his hand. “The hardest thing to realise  is that their not... here, with you any more” she said, a tear slipping down her face. Harry took a breath, his hand still entwined with Luna’s. “She does know” Harry thought. For a while they both lay there, on the ground, in silence.

 

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
Between who you are and you could be
Between how it is and how it should be


 

Harry opened his moth, and then closed it. “You have a choice” Luna said. “You either choose. With who you are now, or who you could be” she said quietly. Memories and thoughts still swirled through Harry’s head. 

Harry seeing Sirius for the first time, as a dog. The firebolt for Christmas, the entire past summer, locked in a house cleaning... Sirius’s broken body falling through the veil. Harry opened his eyes as he began to cry again. He would never see, he would never hear, he would never hug, he would never see...

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

 


Luna opened her eyes. Her left hand still clasped in Harry’s right hand. She pulled herself halfway of the floor. Harry looked at her. “Harry, you can it here, and I’ll be with you or, I’ll dare you to move” she whispered. 

Harry made no movement to get up. Luna sighed inside her head. As she stood, a hand grabbed hers. “I’ll come with you” Harry said, his voice shaking and tears sliding down his cheeks. Luna smiled and kissed his cheek. 


Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

 

Harry stood and walked out of the room, holding on to Luna’s hand. He would never say goodbye, fully or completely. Harry now had to hold his head high. Luna, she knew how he felt and she had the same experience. She had dared him to lift himself of the floor of despair and to choose between now, and then. “Luna, thank you” Harry said. Luna gave him a smile. “Today hasn’t happened before; start fresh” she said. 

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before...



Harry couldn't help but to agree.


*By the way, If any body is a Nickelback fan and likes 'If evryone cared' go on youtube, watch the videos and comment. Because many people don't care, no offence to those who protest and march etc. but the state our world's in, it's disgusting*
