Yolanda and I walked down to the greenhouse after I saw Harry and spoke with him for a few moments. I looked up at the sky to see there was a storm coming. I could feel the mist settling on my skin as I thought about the night that my parents died.
~After Aislinn's Herbology~
I walked back from Herbology on my own, since the other girls were preoccupied talking to their friends that we had class with. The rain was falling down in a light drizzle on my head, and the grass was wet. The sky appeared dark and gray, and the air was sticky and humid. The storm was definitely on it's way. I smoothed down my hair and glanced at the sky, pausing in my tracks as I recalled the night that my parents died.
Lightning that sounded like a whip grew louder as the storm progressed outside. A pale man wearing a cloak was nearing my parents. My father stood in front of him, hiding the second crib. I let out a cry as the man yelled out an incantation and my father dropped do the ground, a ray of green light filling the room. It came and went as quick as the lightning.
As the man heard a second cry filling the house, he drifted over my father's lifeless body and loomed over my crib. "Aislinn!" my mother exclaimed quietly, standing in the doorway to my bedroom. "Aislinn.." he began, sliding a wand down the side of my face, "what a beautiful name.." "Crucio!" he seethed, white-hot pain sliding out the end of his wand. I screamed, the thunder rumbling loudly and the lighting strikes filling the room.
As my mother approached him, he lifted his wand and the pain went with it. I squirmed, watching him back my mother into my brother's room and to his crib. I felt warm blood drip down the side of my face, dripping onto my bed.
"Avada Kadavra!" He yelled, but my mother jumped in front of him, a small flash of green light getting to Harry.
Strong arms then wrapped around me as screams filled my ears and my house erupted in flame.
~End of Flashback~
I gasped, realizing I had dropped my books on the ground. I quickly gathered myself as Yolanda approached me. "Hey, Aislinn! Are you okay? You just got really pale," she said, smoothing my hair with concern in her eyes. "Yeah, I'm okay, I just don't like storms is all." I said, wiping my books off and giving her a weak smile. She nodded understandingly and ushered me along, back to the castle.
Late that night, I was talking to Harry through the fireplace in the Slytherin Common Room. I was explaining to him what happened today and how I had a flashback to the death of our parents.
"But why would he only use the cruciatus curse on you? I don't understand why he wouldn't want to kill you." He said, his brow furrowed.
"I'm not sure Harry. But I am sure that neither of us should be worrying about it because there's no way for us to find out why he really did that." I said. I was trying desperately to reassure him and now I was almost regretting telling him, because I knew that he would absolutely tear himself apart trying to figure out why it happened the way it did. "We should both get some sleep, ok Harry? Just go to bed and try to not think about it. I'll talk to you tomorrow." I said. He nodded and I ended the spell.
Although it was nice to have someone who I could tell things like that, I had felt like shouldn't have told him because I knew that he wouldn't be able to just let it be. I knew that he wanted to protect me so desperately that he would go to any end to do it, but there's a point where I wanted to be able to tell him things and be able to just worry about myself.
Hi guys! I got rid of the cho chang chapter because she's not really relevant to the story and it was mostly just fluff. While rewriting this I'm trying really hard to make sure that I'm not throwing in a bunch of unnecessary information that will make the story boring. Please let me know if you like it better this way! Thank you guys so much!
