The night was clear and warm under the twinkling starts. A slight breeze ruffled the leaves on branches. The moon shone big and bright as it’s rays found its way to earth, it’s rays landed on a girl wandering around the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
This girl’s name was Jaiden Spencer. It was her seventh and final year at Hogwarts, she was Head Girl, everything seemed to be going right, she was second in her class, and her boyfriend was terrific so, sweet, and kind, she couldn’t be happier.
She was walking along the shore of the lake at Hogwarts. The giant squid surfaced a little ways out from shore, making Jaiden pause for a moment. The splash was loud against the silent night.
Voices sounded from a patch of trees to her right. Curious, she inched closer. Keeping her 5’2” frame to the shadows she inched closer. The voices became clearer, her sapphire blue eyes already accustomed to the darkness, could just make out three figures standing in the center of the patch of trees. One was crouching down, while the other two were standing shoulder to shoulder looking down upon the crouching figure.
As Jaiden got nearer the voices became clearer. One of the voices sounded familiar to her, while the other gave her visible shivers.
“ What should we do with him My Lord? ” The more familiar one asked the other.
“ I am thinking… ” Came the high and cold reply.
They were silent for a moment then the cold voice spoke again.
“ As I was saying you were over heard by me faithful servant here passing valuable information to the muggle loving fool Dumbledore, ” The cold voice accused the crouching man.
“ B-but M-my Lord, ” The man on the ground stuttered, “ I-its not t-true, h-he is l-lying, ”
“ Your stuttering tsk, tsk, tsk, ” The cold voice mocked, “I think that it is you who are lying, ”
“ N-no I’m n-not, ” The third man stuttered again, “ I s-swear My L-lord I-I’m not, ”
“ Crucio! ” The man with the cold voice hissed pointing his wand to the man on the ground.
The man screamed horrible, making the patch of trees echo with the terribly wound. Jaiden flinched at the pain in his voice.
“ Do not swear to Lord Voldemort, ” The cold voice said dangerously.
Jaiden let out a soft gasp. Realizing that the sound came from her, her hands flew to her mouth.
Voldemort however did hear it, gazing around him; he whispered something to the man standing next to him. The second man nodded and searched the outer edge.
Jaiden sank back if possible farther into the shadows, as he came closer. A raven landed on the branch next ot her face, it glowered at her, Backing up she stepped on a fallen twig, which cracked like a gunshot. The man jerked at the sound, turning in that direction and started right towards her.
Jaiden turned and booked it, the man saw her and gave way chase, she ran as fast as she could, she heard the pounding footsteps behind her as the man quickly caught her, catching her around the waist and both tumbled to the ground.
The man turned her around to face him and in this gesture, Jaiden finally saw his face.
“ No! ” She shrieked, “ How could you, ”
“ How could I what? ” Ron Weasley asked with malice in his husky voice.
“ I trusted you! ” Jaiden yelled hurt poured through every word.
“ Never trust guys you don’t know very well, ” Ron said maliciously.
Dragging her to her feet, Ron grinned at her, with his left arm he began to pull her towards the patch of woods. Jaiden looked down at his wrist and saw the dark mark burned into his skin, with a cry she started to struggle, that not only got her a tighter grip but also a slap to the face.
A few minutes later they were standing before Lord Voldemort.
“ Well, well, well what do we have here? ” Voldemort asked.
“ A little eavesdropper, ” Ron replied.
“ We can’t have that now can we, ” Voldemort said in a mocking voice.
“ No we can’t, ” Ron said.
Jaiden glared at the tow of them, causing Voldemort to let out a high cold pitch laugh. Lifting a long pale hand her grabbed her chin roughly and lifted her head up so she was staring into his face. Jaiden tried to jerk her head from his grasp, but he held fast.
“ Oh feisty, ” Voldemort observed
“ Let go of me, ” Jaiden snarled, ripping her head from his grasp.
Jaiden jerked her arm from Ron’s firm grasp, and tired to run but she only got a few steps when Ron grabbed her shirt and pulled her back. Jaiden slammed against his chest with her back, she felt his arm encircle her chest, while his other hand found her throat, His face next to hers, his lips next to her ear.
“ Never… ” Ron whispered dangerously in her ear, “ Do that again, ”
“ I don’t think she will, ” Voldemort said, “ If she knows what’s good for her, ”
“ Go to hell, ” Jaiden whispered, she felt his hand tighten on her throat.
“ Now as I was saying to Mr. Thomas, ” Voldemort said turning his attention back to the man on the ground, “ I do not tolerate traitors, ”
“ I-I’m not a t-traitor, ” Dean Thomas said.
“ Liar, ” Voldemort hissed, “ I am through dealing with you, ”
“ What should we do with him now? ” Ron asked roughly keeping a firm grasp on Jaiden.
“ I have and idea… ” Voldemort said aiming his want at Dean again, “ Avada Kedavra, ”
Jaiden screamed as Dean Thomas fell to the ground dead, and struggled against Ron. Ron’s hand covered her mouth to stifle the scream while his hand stayed on her throat.
“ Be still and be quiet, ” Ron said dangerously.
“ Well that’s been taken care of, ” Voldemort said.
“ Want me to take care of the body? ” Ron asked Voldemort.
“ That won’t be necessary, I’ll deal with that, ” Voldemort replied, “ I want you to take her back to the castle, do anything you have to, to keep her from talking, ”
“ This’ll be fun, right sweetie, ” Ron said with malice.
Jaiden tried to say something but his hand muffled it. Ron grinned and bid his master good night, and began to walk towards the castle keeping Jaiden in front of him at all times.
