Background: Font color:
Harry and Hermione left Gringotts and made their way around Diagon Alley buying things they thought that they would need for the castle and some things to give to the Weasleys.
“Mione, do you want to stay in Gryffindor Castle or at Godrics Hollow?” Harry asked Hermione.
“Anywhere love, as long as I’m with you.” Hermione replied, wrapping her arms around Harry’s waist.
“Then I think that we will go and stay at Godrics Hollow, that’s if it’s not totally destroyed.” Harry told Hermione and she nodded.
They looked around Diagon Alley and bought many things for themselves and the Weasleys’.
For Ron, Ginny, Bill, Charlie, Fred and George, they bought each of them a new broom. The Lightningbolt was the latest broomstick out in the market and was the fastest broom available.
For Mr and Mrs Weasley, they got both of them many things from the muggle market that would make their lives much easier instead of doing things the way they did.
When Harry and Hermione reached the Burrow, they saw that there was a whole group of Death Eaters approaching the house with their wands raised, ready to attack the house.
The two of them immediately raised their wands and put a shield in front of the Burrow that would prevent the Death Eaters from entering the house. Once they had put the shield up, they started firing curses at the Death Eaters to distract them from the house and give the Weasleys a chance to escape. Suddenly, Harry had an idea. Instead of firing a curse at the death eaters, he pointed his wand up in the sky and shouted Phoenicreo! A red beam of light shot out from his wand and formed the shape of a phoenix in the sky. Almost immediately, a whole group of Order members including Dumbledore, Remus and McGonagall appeared behind Harry and Hermione and started firing curses of their own at the death eaters.
Surprised by this move, the death eaters started backing off and tried to escape but they were foiled by their own stupidity of using an anti-apparation ward that prevented them from apparating away from there. Harry used their momentary distraction to his advantage and fired a curse at all of them STUPEFY MAXIMUS! Almost immediately, the whole group of death eaters fell to the ground unconscious. The only one left standing was Bellatrix Lestrange who had protected herself from the curse Harry had sent at the Death Eaters.
“So we meet again Bella. This time, I am going to avenge Sirius’s death and you better watch out, because my powers have doubled and I am much stronger than what I was before.” Harry said, his voice full of confidence.
“How childish of you baby Potter, to think that you, a fifteen year old, could defeat the Dark Lord’s most faithful servant. But either way, double the confidence, double the fall.” Bellatrix replied Harry.
Before Bellatrix could even utter a single word, Harry had already shouted EXPELLIARMUS! Bellatrix had to jump to the side to avoid that curse and in turn sent a killing curse at Harry.
Hermione gasped as she saw the green jet of light coming towards Harry. Harry simply waved his wand and a silver orb appeared in front of him. When the green jet of light came into contact with the silver orb Harry had produced, it simply fizzled out.
“IMPOSSIBLE! NO ONE IS ABLE TO BLOCK THE KILLING CURSE! WHAT DID YOU DO BOY?” Bellatrix screamed at Harry.
Harry merely laughed and retorted, “I told you my powers had increased, but yet you did not believe me. Would you like a taste of a quarter of my powers? This was merely a warm up exercise for me.”
Bellatrix looked at him in fear and dropped to her knees and threw her wand down to Harry’s feet and said, “I surrender, I pledge my allegiance to you.”
Everyone around Harry looked on at the scene in shock at what had just happened before their eyes. Hermione was the first one to reach Harry and wrapped her arms around him.
“HARRY JAMES POTTER! DON’T YOU EVER DO THAT TO ME EVER AGAIN!” Hermione shouted at Harry.
“Harry, you have done very well. I am very proud of you.” Dumbledore told him as he approached him.
Harry nodded at everyone who was there and motioned for Bellatrix to follow him. Hermione started to follow him but Harry shook his head and said, “Mione, I need you to stay here now. I have to deal with this myself.” She nodded and watched Harry lead Bellatrix away.
Meanwhile, Dumbledore was addressing all the Order members. “I think it is time to induct Harry and Hermione into the Order. They have shown a lot of potential in this battle, especially Harry. By joining the Order, I believe that it would be easier for us to monitor his growth in power and be able to help him develop them properly. Does anyone have any objections to this?” Dumbledore asked the Order members in front of him.
“Albus, I believe that we should discuss this with the whole Order before making this decision. I have a feeling that Molly will have a strong objection to this so it would be easier if you explained your reasons to everyone instead of just us.” Remus replied Dumbledore.
Dumbledore nodded and they dispersed to check the house for any fatalities.
“Bellatrix, I did not kill you for a simple reason. If you have really pledged your allegiance to me, then the first thing I would like you to do is to tell me Voldemort’s latest plans. What he is planning now and where he is staying now.” Harry told her.
“The Dark Lord is planning to attack Diagon Alley tomorrow. He thinks that by attacking here, we could have damaged the Order’s strength to fight back to us. His force will include 100 death eaters and another 50 dementors. He thinks that the people will be too slack to think that he would attack Diagon Alley.” Bellatrix said.
“OK. Now, I want you to go back to him and tell him that the Order interfered with all of you and all of the death eaters that were there were captured except you as you managed to escape in time before we apprehended all the death eaters. After that, I want you to come back here and tell me what he tells you.” Harry told her.
She nodded her head and he dismissed her with a wave of his hand.
