When Hermione next became conscious, she was bound by magical ropes, on a boat, with Harry and Micheals. She tried to speak but found she had no voice.
“You’ll be happy to know,” Harry said, “well, not so happy seeing as you’re the one who tried to kill them, but all Weasley’s, with the exception of-.” He broke off, swallowed hard and continued, “Arthur, are recovering.” He was staring at her with hard, cold eyes.
“We’re taking you to Azkaban,” Micheals said, “We’ll be there shortly.” He glared at Hermione. “Arthur Weasley was a fine man.”
“She knows that, for eight years, they cared for her as if she was their own daughter. She almost was to. Ron was about to propose to her on her birthday.” Harry stared at her, “and you do this to him.” The boat hit the shore of the little dark island Azkaban lay on. “You’ll be in here for life Hermione.” He raised his wand and she levitated to her feet from the sitting position she was in.
She was led to a cell. There were no longer dementors, seeing as they weren’t trustworthy anymore.
“Guards will be on you at all times,” Micheals said.
Harry was about to speak when Kingsley Shacklebolt, Minister for Magic approached. “Micheals, leave us please.” He said in that low soothing voice.
“Yes Minister,” the young Auror said and walked off. As soon as Hermione was in her cell, the silencing charm that was on her was taken off.
“I was surprised when I heard about this Miss. Granger.” Kingsley said but was cut off.
“Riddle,” she snapped, “it’s Miss Riddle.”
“That may be, but you’ll always be known as Hermione Granger to me.”
“That’s what I tried to tell her Kingsley, I don’t know what caused this change in her. This was found in her robes.” He handed Kingsley the photograph and birth certificate.
“Unbelievable,” Kingsley muttered, “what do you know on the matter?”
“Nothing Minister,” Harry replied, “but I’m sure Hermione knows something.”
“Dumbledork didn’t tell anyone then?”
“He’s the one who took me, charmed me, placed me with filthy muggles!”
“I’m sure he had a good reason!” Harry defended.
“Because of my parents! Not a good enough reason to me!”
“Come Harry, let’s leave Hermione and speak to Albus. You’ll have a trial, Hermione, in a week’s time.” And they left.
Hermione’s trial date arrived very slowly, being alone in a cell. By the time it got there, Hermione was aloud a five minute shower to present herself for the trial. She attended, was given veritiserum and questioned. She told them what she could and then waited alone in a chamber while they came to a decision. The Weasley’s were present at the trial along with Harry. Hermione didn’t have any hope she’d come out innocent. She was also angry with herself that she didn’t complete the task she sent out to do and that Draco was killed during the process. All she could do was wonder where Nacrissa was.
She was called back in the court room and she sat in the chair that binded her.
“In the case of Hermione Jane Riddle, we, the Wizengamot, find her guilty and sentenced to a life sentence in Azkaban.”
Hermione grinned to herself, this didn’t bother her one bit. It gave her time to plan the deaths of Harry and Molly even better. She was sent back to her cell, Harry and Kingsley escorting her. She caught the sad, angry, surprised looks on the Weasley’s faces and grinned evilly.
“I hope you enjoy your stay in hell!” Ron yelled as she passed. She was back in her cell in no time, port key taken from the court to Azkaban.
“I’m sorry it had to come to this,” Kingsley said to Harry. “She was one of your best friends.”
“Best friends don’t turn on you because their heritage and appearances change. She’s not the best friend I had.”
They locked her in her cell and left, not saying a single word to her. The last thing she heard was, “but she’s right, this was all Albus’s fault.” The sad voice of the Minister.
I won’t be here long, she thought as two skilled Aurors stood outside her cell. And when I get out, there will be hell to pay. And that’s a promise.
