Declaimer: I don't own Harry potter
Rodolphus and Bellatrix Lestrange never wanted to have children to interfere with their work as death eaters, but they knew they had to for the sake of pure bloods to stay alive. On November 22 1975 their daughter was born, they named her Saphira Elladora Lestrange. Saphira grew into a beautiful child with long wavy dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her parents would often brag about their daughters' beauty to others. Rodolphus spoiled his little princess with toys and affection. Bellatrix on the other hand was more concerned with Saphira magical ability; luckily for Saphira she demonstrated when she was 2 by moving a toy with her mind. Bellatrix let Saphira practice magic with her wand and was delighted that Saphira had no problem doing so.
When Saphira was six at least since the downfall of Lord Voldemort 2 months ago, Rodolphus and Bellatrix Lestrange with Rodolphus's younger brother Rabastan spent most days looking for their master, leaving Saphira home with her Aunt Narcissa. Saphira never complained she loved spending time with Aunt Cissy and her baby cousin but she didn't understand why him parents would go away sometimes for over a week.
On the night of December 18 1981 when the Lestrange family was all home, they had sent Saphira to bed but she couldn't sleep because of the storm outside, her mother had told her now that she was six she shouldn't be scared of storms anymore so Saphira tried to put her fear of the storm aside and sleep. When the storm grew louder and harder, Saphira got up from her bed about half an hour after she was put to bed and put on her robe and slippers. Then she went to her book shelve and grabbed her favorite book along with her stuffed cat and quietly went downstairs. She passed though the hallway and went passed her fathers study and heard her father auguring with her uncle Rabastan. She waited for a few minutes to see if her father would come out and be able to read to her. When he didn't Saphira continued to the living room where her mother Bellatrix was sitting on the sofa,
Bellatrix turned her head when she heard her daughter entered the room.
"Saphira darling, what are you doing up," Bellatrix asked. Saphira come closer to where her mother sat.
"I couldn't sleep Mummy, can you read to me?" Saphira asked handed the book to Bellatrix.
"Alright, then off to bed," Bellatrix said and helped Saphira sit on the couch next to her. Half way though the book the candles blew out and a light came though the door
"Mummy," Saphira said scared of the dark.
"Rodolphus!" Bellatrix yelled standing up
"Mummy," Saphira said again
"Shh Saphira," Bellatrix said in angry tone. Saphira was scared by her mother's sudden anger. Rodolphus and Rabastan entered the room with two Aurors behind them.
Just as the door opened and 4 men came in then Bellatrix grabbed Saphira and got her off the sofa and put her in front of her knowing full well the Aurors wouldn't harm a child.
"Rodolphus, Bellatrix, Rabastan Lestrange you are under arrest for the use of the Cruciatus curse on Frank and Alice Longbottom," One Auror said holding his wand at them like the another Aurors were "Your daughter will be taken into the ministry's care,"
Bellatrix stroking her daughters check an actually scraping Saphira's check with her long fingernails but not enough to draw blood.
"What is she to you, she's just a child," Bellatrix said. The Aurors lowered their wands slightly to not alarm Saphira any more then she already was. Bellatrix smiled when they did this, then Rabastan and Rodolphus shot spells at the Aurors and Bellatrix pulled Saphira closer to the fire place with Rodolphus and Rabastan; when an Auror came closer to them.
"Avada Kedavra," Rabastan shouted and Saphira saw green light then the Auror fall not moving. Saphira very alarmed by everything that was happening stared at the man she knew was dead. Saphira felt her mother's grip loosen as Bellatrix used a spell on an Auror when she started to tighten the grip again to move closer to the fire place, Saphira dropped her stuffed cat that she'd been holding then ran from her mother's arms and out of the house and passed the Aurors who were moving to arrest her family she didn't even stop when she heard someone yelling her name...
Saphira stopped running after the Lestrange Manor was out of sight and she was at the edge of the woods. Saphira stopped by a tree and sat down. She looked around and realized she didn't know where she was. She was all alone. Saphira heard a noise coming from the dark.
"Hello," She whispered standing up. When she heard the noise again she ran out of the remaining woods to what she thought looked like a muggle neighborhood. Saphira looked around, she was cold, scared and lost and couldn't remember how to get back home Saphira wanted her daddy to hug her in his strong arm. Saphira felt something cold on her face and noticed that it was starting to snow it wasn't raining anymore. Saphira thought she better stay put and wait for her daddy and mummy to come get her. Surely they would come for her. Saphira looked up from the ground where she was sitting and saw the lights of a bus.
