Meanwhile at Hogwarts.......(i own nothing you recognise from the series and there's a fair amount of cussing and some ooc so you have been warned.....)
Roxanne snuck down the halls behind her brother. It was a bit frustrating to her that he always kept her in the dark and lately he's barley spoken a word to her since she met her nephew. It's not that she didn't believe them, but it seemed fishy. Lucius came to a stop in front of a bare wall. He seemed to just be staring at it for a few seconds until a door appeared. She backed up quickly when he looked down the corridor. Once he was sure no one was there Lucius opened the door and went inside. She ran from her hiding spot towards the door. Almost instantly the door vanished as if it was never there.
"Damn it..." She muttered. Roxanne stood there for few moments unsure of what to do next. Every time she followed him here she could never find a way inside the door. It was almost as if the door was purposely not showing it's-self to her.
Footsteps came from behind and she turned around. A familiar mop of black, greasy hair was making their way towards her. As the boy got closer she recognized him. 'Snivellus' she thought.
"Snape, what are you doing here?" She questioned him, her eyes narrowing.
"I could ask you the same thing, Malfoy. Though it is hard to see you this close to the Gryffindor's little lair. People might think you're up to something." Severus said coldly. She rolled her eyes.
"As you can see I'm merely standing in front of a wall thinking about the meaning of life. What could I possibly do? And shouldn't you be with your little death eater friends plotting your next move or something like that?" Roxanne said with sarcasm pouring into her voice.
"Shouldn't you be babysited by your brother?" He retorted.
"That was weak. Come up with some better insults, Snivellus."
"At least I don't throw a fit whenever I don't get my way."
"Go play with you potions kit and leave me alone." She glared at him.
"I don't think I will, Malfoy. See I, unlike you, actually have business here. And I, very much unlike you, am not a spoiled brat."
"Your 'business' requires you to be where the Gryffindor common room is? Seems odd to me." She raised an eyebrow.
"Sod off. It's none of your bloody concern."
"Expain to me why your friends with my brother, cause I don't understand why he'd want to hang out with a slimy little prat like you." She snapped.
"And I don't get why he'd want a whiny, stuck up bitch for a sister." (totally ooc for him, i know but he's been pushed pretty far in life to his limit so I'm gonna let him blow off some steam.)
Roxanne took two strides forward and punched him square in the nose
"Don't you dare say that about me." She spoke deadly soft then walked away cursing him.
Severus stood there clutching his nose in pain. He checked to make sure it wasn't bleeding, but luck was not on his side for the day. His nose though was throbbing, but it didn't feel broken.
"Well there's my happy thought for the day." He muttered.
"She got you pretty good." A voice came from behind him.
"How long have been you been there, Black?" Severus turned around and faced him. Regulus had a smirk on his face very similar to his older brother's.
"Long enough to see the show." The 14 year old replied.
"Why did you need to meet me here anyway?" He scowled. Regulus looked down at his feet.
"It's my parents. They're starting to push me to join him. I need help." He said after a few moments.
"What could I do?"
"You're friends with that Evans girl right?" Severus narrowed his eyes at him. He and Lily haven't spoken since he called her the 'm' word in a fit of rage because of Potter and his friends last year.
"Not anymore thanks to your lovely brother and his friends." He answered darkly.
"Can you please ask her something for me though? I need her to tell Sirius I need to talk to him. I need someone on myside. I don't want to be one."
"Why don't you do it yourself?"
"He won't talk to me. He hasn't spoken to me since he ran away." He looked down at the floor.
"Ask her yourself. Lily will here you out at least. Then it's up to her to tell your brother or not. Now if you excuse me I have to go clean this up." Severus said and walked away from the hallway.
"Were you followed?" Draco asked his father as he came in. He shook his head.
"No one was there. Is everyone here?" He asked looking around.
Narcissa, Blaise, Seamus, Lavender and Pansy were there waiting at the table that had appeared in the room. At the moment the room looked like a small section of the library where the tables were. The walls were white and there were a few lights hanging from the ceiling.
"This is everyone that's going to map out the manor?"
"Everyone else was busy." Pansy answered. "Besides in our time me, Blaise and Draco spent alot of time exploring around Malfoy Manor when we were younger."
"Well as you three probably know the manor consists of 3 floors, the library, a basement and an attic. The library however is hard to get into. Father made sure only a Malfoy could get in. Knowing him that's where he put Tom's diary."
"My sister Bellatrix has joined him about a year ago. Already she has become his most faithful follower. I found out that he's keeping something in our family vault the last time I spoke to her. That means only me, Andromeda, Bellatrix, Regulus, Sirius and our parents can get in."
"Did you find out what it is?" She shook her head.
"All she said was that it was extremely important to him."
"It be either the locket or cup. He wouldn't keep his snake there." Draco said.
"Over the winter break is when we'll have to get them. I'll be home so I'll be able to look for the diary. Cissa will be able to go to Gringotts at that time probably with somebody so it doesn't look odd."
"Why can't we come along?" Blaise asked.
"You shouldn't be seen by anymore people outside of school. If Voldemort or his death eaters find out about you and where you all come from he's going to want answers and we aren't letting him get them."
"Inferi!" Lily shouted. Bodies of men, woman and children were coming towards them. James and Sirius started shooting curses at them, but more kept coming to replace them.
The floor from upstairs had given away and took Ginny down with it. She laid on the floor un-moving. Neville was defending her and Luna as Luna checked for a pulse. Harry, Ron, and Hermione rushed back up quickly to join the fight. Harry froze as he saw Ginny there on the floor.
"Harry!" His father's voice rang out. He snapped back into reality and started shooting stunning spells. They began to over ride the Inferi as the others began to shoot the same spells at them.
"We have to get her out of here!" Ron shouted.
Hermione pulled a small object out of her pocket. "Dumbledore gave me this case we had to make a quick escape! Everyone move to Ginny!"
As they fought their way over to here James was badly scratched by one of the corpses. He tripped and fell right next to Ginny. Hermione put the glass vial in her hand and grabbed Ron with the other.
"Join hands!" As Harry's fingers closed over Lily's wrist he felt a swooping sensation, as if he was taking the floo network.
