I do not own anything from HP!:D X
"It can't be-"
"But it is!"
"Maybe, maybe she lived-"
"No shit sherlock!"
Students and Professor's paused in awe as they watched Aurora sweep past with Serena clutching her neck happily. Snape was by her side, growling at any gaping student, demanding them to move.
"Are you sure-?"
"Positive." answered Aurora forcing Snape to stay silent.
"Why do you need Serena? It could be dangerous!" Aurora smiled as they descended into the Entrance Hall, following the small stoned path to the gates of Hogwarts where she would apparate.
"I promise, it won't be," she whispered and allowed Snape to kiss their daughter goodbye before she closed the gate with a clank. Snape stared after her darkly.
"Come back to me safe, Aurora." he muttered angrily. Aurora blew him a sarcastic kiss before winking.
"You know I will always come back, just look over your shoulder."
"The High Court and the Wizengamot is now in session. All rise!"
The wizards in the oval room immediately rise in respect as the Minister of Magic and high ranking members of the High Court entered the court room. Aurora, Hector and Gregori led the way, receiving many bows. A few murmurs and mutters bursted through the room as Aurora entered, clearly alive. Aurora smiled slightly at the confusion as she took the hot seat right in the middle of the room in front of the High Court and Wizengamot. The new Minister of Magic, Scrimegour peered down at her.
"Well, well, well, My Lady I was most gracious to hear that your death was fake!" He announced coldly. Aurora smiled.
"Thank you Minister." Scrimegour coughed politely.
"Now, you have called this meeting for a very important reason. Would you like to tell us what that is?" Aurora took a deep breath, fiddling with her wedding ring knowing that could raise some interesting legal issues. Hector nodded at her to keep going.
"I am here to propose that the High Court and the Wizengamot to put an end to the Royal Family of Russia and allow the Ministry to take full control of the country." There was a long horrible silence.
"Ex-excuse me?" called an elderly wizard.
"You heard me, sir." she answered confidently. Scriemgour looked at her incredulously.
"Why would we do that!?" Aurora breathed deeply.
"I have a story to tell. One which I think you should listen to careful. You gave my family the honour of protecting this beautiful country and for centuries my ancestors and my family have done what you have said. We have done well to protect this country from the wrath of He-Who-Must-Not-be-Named. Except, at the time he grows most powerful, the worst happens. My Mother dies suddenly, later joined by my older sister, Clarisse and her family. I had to experience that. Then, my youngest sister, Alexsandra was murdered cruelly, followed by my Father and my brother. Yet, the most shocking fact is that it was all done by an assassin, a follower of Voldemort. My stepmother. Helena, as you all know, tried to kill me. But thankfully she didn't-"
"How does this show that the Ministry should take control? You know why we didn't! Such a large duty could not be handled by the Ministry alone-we needed a small group of wizards to keep a beady, close eye on Russia. The Ministry has many duties and not enough hands to handle them alone-let alone a huge country-"
"So you would allow innocent men, woman and children die?" There was an eery silence.
"There is another reason-"
"This is illegal!" called another wizard.
"Excuse me? But it is not, sir," Aurora revealed a long sheet of paper, "By order of Declaration No. 23, A Tsar or Tsarina may terminate the line of the Royal Family if only there is a majority of voters at the High Court and Wizengamot. It is very much legal." The wizard pursed his lips, shaking his head. Scrimegour frowned and smirked, tracing his lips.
"Yes...you are correct in that area....carry on." he replied reluctantly. Aurora smiled.
"Thank you, Minister. I believe it is time to end the Royal Family. I have watched my family being murdered before my eyes. I do not think it is right to have innocent people die-"
