Severus was standing with Remus and the others. The girls were calm as they came back. Almost too calm and it had him a little unnerved. It was like they didn't have emotions or thoughts on what had happened. But he knew that wasn't true because he had seen how badly the girls had taken to Lucius' death and the battle they had had.
"So...this is meant to make use face our fears and to become quicker.. And to keep us on our toes and to test our wit? A good way to go.. But do you know fully what will be in this maze? Or will each challenge be focused on us as individauls?" He could not help asking as it seemed the others wouldn't. And he was trying to analyze their idea of this maze.. Only Blakely and Willow knew what it was they would be up against.
Sirius shrugged a little. The man offered a faint smile. "Well we knew this wouldn't be easy. And looks like we got a new challenge too. So since you two faced a basic of this maze, who is gonna be next?" He was wanting a turn to see it and how bad it was.
Almost did he flinch under the looks he was given. But he couldn't help that it was a new adventure and got his attention.
They were all gathered there in a strange form of silence. Remus hadn't experieneced anything like that before, Willow and Blakely returned so calmly, he had to wonder what they had gone through. They were so well trained and quick.
Willow and Blakely explained about the maze how it would be fears, weaknesses and strengths, once it was properly done with an escape in the center.
Remus looked to them. "Is that a good idea?"
"It is," Willow nodded. "They are devoted and will do what it takes. If we are held back by our fear there is no bloody way that we can do anything like this. We need to be more to not have a second war, if we have children they will be the ones that will suffer."
She had expected the maze to be difficult as she and Willow had decided to at least start practicing. It was better for them to test it first before letting the others near it. But when they began, Blakely was not prepared for the magic and traps that had been thrown their way. It was so very different and more complex than anything they had faced before. Almost dizzying and overwhelming to her senses. A couple of times she even thought she would lose it to the vampire in her.
When it became too much and even Willow gave in was when the shrubs retracted and became normal again. Her wand was slipped back into her jeans and she hugged the other girl. [b "I'm sure we'll get better as we go.. And I am too...There isn't anyone I would rather face all of this with. I love you too, sis."] Blakely whispered with a small smile.
Willow had always been someone she trusted. And someone who kept her sane. [b "Should we make sure the others haven't kill the other yet?"] She asked with a laugh.
There didn't seem to be a way to truly know was there? Willow was frustrated, but either way, there wasn't a true way of telling. The future would change with the smallest of changes. She let it go, for the moment, attempting to not focus on that for a moment.
"Let's go practice then..." Willow said, heading out the back. They couldn't get far but they could get started. It was rough to start off with but it seemed to help with them. When there was the polka dots she lost it before the shrubs went back to normal. "We're horrible at this magic...I'm so glad you're actually my sister..."
Hugging her tightly, Blakely would always be her soft place to go to, and she hoped she would be the same to her. "I love you, sis."
[b "We had been told that something else would arise.. A new threat of sorts. I just wish we knew what had been meant when that had come up... The only way to find out as you said would be working for the Ministry... I just wish I could do more to help.."] Blakely said softly and gave the other a sad smile. She knew that Willow was all over the place, but it was not something she could really help with either.
Green eyes went to the maze that was going up and a shiver ran through her. There was something forboding about it. But she snapped back to attention when Willow spoke, giving her full attention. [b "I know what you mean...and I didn't mean to be cruel or harsh..."] She whispered and nodded. [b "Yeah..we probably should."]
"If we play by these rules, finish him off, then there wouldn't be a second war. Right? The centaur did say a new threat would arise...I guess this ministry job is the only way to find out," Willow was everywhere. This haunted her though, it probably would for a long while before she looked to her and nodded.
"I know...but I don't want to go to their level...I keep thinking someone will go through the pain we do even if they are on the other side. I don't like that feeling," Willow rubbed her arms. Looking to the back window she saw the miserable looking maze before standing up. "Should we see what we can do before we contact Dumbledore?"
Green eyes were still skimming the pages within the book. Had that all really happened? It felt like another lifetime ago. Which was an ironic thought because technically it was. But looking at the pages and rereading made her recall all the more who they had been. Remember where they really came from. And she was ashamed of having forgotten because it had been so easy to fall into their new lives and roles.
Willow's voice was what brought her out of her thoughts. [b "It is...if we don't learn to be more cunning...braver...and faster we won't make it. We have to be able to face our fears and we have to step it up to keep up with the Death Eaters...today we had been lucky.."] The strawberry blonde said quietly. It was not her being rude, but honest.
For a second, Blakely looked back to where the others were dealing with Lucius. But she was quick to return her attention to Willow. [b "I know you didn't mean it...He was playing to kill...it was...as horrible as it sounds..'kill or be killed'.. And I really don't know how this rewrote the bits with Draco and changed it all."] She whispered
With a look in the book, it was not much on their part only that Cedric died and Harry emerged alone. It was in Snape's portion that was interesting, talking about the cup being enchanted to take him elsewhere when Voldermort was reborn. The description was fairly straight forward.
"I think it's time to ask Dumbledore to help us build this. One that goes to the level of Death Eaters, possibly our fears, teaches all cunning, wisdom, bravery...all in one..." Willow said, they were away from the others, while they dealt with the body and whatnot.
"I didn't mean to...I just blasted him...what's going to happen? Draco must have some important part. According to Snape he was supposed to kill Dumbledore and instead he did..."
[b "You taking the job in the Department of Mysteries will shed some light on all of this..and you had always wanted to be a part of the Ministry..so it works both ways."] Blakely said slowly as she gave Willow a smile. She knew that had been a main part to why the other was doing this. It also gave her a way to use her wits and cleverness as well.
The strawberry blonde young woman once more let her eyes trail to Lucius' body and she was trying to think what to do about him. Quickly being called back by Willow's next words. [b "The final task... a maze that a boy had died during because..."] But she looked down. The more that was said, the more her memories were coming back.
[b "I think it's time we take that enchanted book out...the one we wrote it all in.."] She whispered as green eyes went around the group. They all had to know what had been and what was at stake once more.
They were fighting the future on not able to see the outcome. It was the first thought she had was what if they made it worse. It seemed it was good timing that she was offered a job at the Department of Mysteries. It would be the only way to have some indication.
"I think...we need to go in with our eyes both forward and backwards. I think Dumbledore pulled some strings and I'm offered a job in the Department of Mysteries, that I'm going to take," Willow said tearing her eyes away. "And...that our training isn't working...It's time to go Triwizard. Do you remember the last challenge?"
SHe didn't fully remember, only something shocking happened. But the maze was a perfect idea and with the right enchantment it'd get people to face fears and stay on their feet. She rose an eyebrow to see if that'd jog Blakely's memory.
"Willow is kind of freaking out. Severus is trying to get her to caom down." Sirius said as he had come over to the other three. His grey eyes were over on the tree the other two stood beneath.
Blakely nodded to Remus with a smile. She had not known how he had felt, which was silly since she was an empath. Or meant to be. But with everything it had been...hard to tell. And she had been so convinced with them being friends and close.
Sirius' words had her attention as did Mateo's. Green eyes looked between them all as she nodded slowly. Her hand had slipped into Remus' as they all went to see what had happened.
[b "D...Draco..."?] Blakely whispered. Almost was she sure that had been the name. But not completely. There were things she still knew, but other things not so much. Her eyes locked with Willow's and then she looked to Lucius' body.
[b "What do you want to do..? I..I think we rewrote so much more than we should have."] To most in the group they stood with it wasn't exactly a secret anymore. And she and Willow really did need to talk. Did need the help.of the others to figure out what to do.
"Really?" Remus asked, giving a soft laugh of joy, he had avoided that since he wasn't sure what she felt. Now there was something there, a sign. When Sirius came there wasn't a Severus or Willow. Instead they were hanging around an old tree.
Mateo frowned looking to Remus, "perhaps we should investigate, amigo."
Remus looked to Blakely and nodded.
By the tree was Lucius body slumped over. "He's dead, isn't he?"
Willow gave a nod before looking over to Blakely's confused. "Do you have any memories of that Slytherin boy? Hated Harry with a passion...I know there was someone...I just...I think I killed his father."
This would change everything in some way that was unforseen.
Willow seemed really off. Not that he could blame her. She had just killed someone and clearly had never done it before. Gently his hands rubbed her arms. "It was an accident, Willow...anyone of us could have done it.." He whispered to her.
Dark eyes again were on Lucius when she seemed to regain her composure. But something seemed wrong. She could not seem to remember his name. "We could bury him here...Or try and have him be half a vampyre as Blakely is..though that means she would 'baby sit'.." Severus said as his attention soon came back to the young woman at his side.
His head tilted as he would let her make the call.
In a flash there was those memories she tried to bury, the bodies gathered in the great hall, those of the people they knew and some they didn't. It hadn't happened for a while but seeing this body of Lucius brought it all back. "The war...I killed someone...I don't think I've done that before..."
She took a breath before looking to him. "We need to get back...there's a lot to do...there's only going to be one war, not two," she said finding her composure. "What do we do with him?"
No...what was his name...she couldn't think of it now. He didn't exist.
It hadn't completely amazed her that they had been able to pull off the small victory that they had. But it had still been amazing all the same. Each of them had their own talents and their own skills which had helped. And though this wasn't her, Blakely was able to switch between them when needed. And she had needed to in order to help those she cared about.
Her cheeks flushed a dark red when she had been pulled into the warm embrace and for a moment she let herself take in his scent. The sound of his heart. All of it was calming and seemed the only that did not call to the vampyre in her. [b "I'm glad you are too.."] Blakely whispered. And before she knew it, his lips were against her own in a kiss. Internally she was freaking a bit, but she found she liked it too. So she didn't pull back and had returned his kiss.
When the man had pulled back, her cheeks were a dark red. A small smile came to her lips and her heart was literally fluttering in her chest. [b "D-don't be sorry.."] She whispered
