As Voldemort tried to shove her away, Lily had a terrible thought: She didn’t have to die. She could save herself.
“It makes me feel better, doing something,” Lily admitted. “And, I… I want to avenge their deaths. I won’t stop until I do.”
“Killing Voldemort isn’t as straightforward as killing anyone else…”
|4||The Deathly Hallows
The Invisibility Cloak… the fabled Elder Wand… and, lastly, the Resurrection stone: The one that had most captivated him, and had evaded him longest.
|5||The Dark Mark
It was the hideous skull and snake, chillingly familiar, tattooed into his pale skin.
“The hard times are over. The enemies are defeated. The Order of the Phoenix is all but destroyed. They have no rallying point now that their false-savior, the boy, is dead. No hope. No chance.”
“I want you to know that I could kill you and get off scot-free. There’s so much chaos around these days, who would notice? Who would miss you?”
“Voldemort grew up in an orphanage. The building is in ruins now, but I think if were to go there… you might find something. It certainly couldn’t hurt.”
“I know a bad lead when I see one. There are no Horcruxes here!”
“Do you know why the Dark Lord targeted your family and Harry in particular?”
|11||The Hunt Continues
“I will not claim to know there is a Horcrux there, but there’s a good chance,” Dumbledore said.
In the bottom of the basin, clearly visible through the liquid, was a locket. Salazar Slytherin’s locket… one of the Horcruxes.
“Who’s R.A.B.?” Lily asked, snagging his arm as he passed. “Sirius, who is it?”
“Well, I was thinking,” Sirius began in a conspiratorially low voice, “we can’t very well find a person who speaks Parseltongue to open the locket for us, right?”
“I daresay the Dark Lord must be more careful about whom he trusts,” Bellatrix said.
“Now we’ve got to figure out how to break into Gringotts. I don’t know if anyone’s done that and lived to tell the tale.”
“Someone broke into my vault!”
|18||The Order of the Phoenix
“For the past few months, we have been on a special… mission. And now we need your help.”
|19||Where Everything is Hidden
Only a few seconds had passed, and Voldemort was circling Severus and ready to strike. Lily didn’t have the time to think—she had to act.
|20||The Master of Death
“Severus wasn’t the only one who knew about your Horcruxes. And the cup and Nagini aren’t the only ones that have been destroyed. We’ve got all of them. The diadem, the locket, the ring and the diary. They’re all gone. You’re a mortal man once more. There’s nothing to keep you from dying when I strike.”
