Author's Note: Being that it's Memorial Day, I felt inclined to post another chapter...if it seems boring to you, stick with it and don't worry, it will get more interesting...Read, Review, & Enjoy!


Harry's eyes narrowed, his jaw tightened, and his hands balled into fists. Lucious Malfoy and Voldemort were sitting at a table, watching the band perform.

"Voldemort," Harry said under his breath.

Almost on cue, Voldemort's gaze went from the band on stage directly to Harry. Upon locking eyes, Voldemort grinned wickedly. Harry gripped the arm of the chair he was sitting in tightly. Ginny looked over and saw Harry.

"Harry, what's wrong?" Ginny asked.

Before Harry could answer, the image of Voldemort and Lucious faded. Confused, Harry relaxed his grip. "I thought I saw…him," he said.

"Voldemort?" Ron asked, "Where?"

"That's just the thing," Harry said, "I thought I saw them on the far wall. But they faded away. I must have just been seeing things."

"You haven't been getting much sleep," Hermione said, "I think tonight you should try to get some rest."

"After we get home from the concert I'll see about fixing up a sleeping potion," Ginny said.

"We got two more songs for you tonight," Jason said, "We'd like to do more, but with all the bands on the venue, we're limited to three. This next song is a bit darker. It's called New Disease. So let's get on with it. Draco."

Draco nodded and began drumming as Jason and Thomas joined in, followed by Paul.

Now I can take this, everything I know
Realize that I'm nothing I wanted to be
I can never change anything I've done
Because it's the only this I have left

Blame myself again for what I didn't do
Never even knew it was coming from me
It changed the way I felt, the worst is yet to come
Because I have gone too far now

Nobody (nobody)
Nobody (nobody)
Changed my mind
And it leads me to a new disease
Somebody (somebody)
Somebody (somebody)
Let it die
But it still becomes a new disease

As Jason played, Hermione noticed a faint grey aura grow around Jason. She'd seen the aura before every time Jason's anger got the better of him.

"The song must be about him," Hermione thought to herself.

Is this all worth what this has done to me
Watered down my senses and turned them on me
Fuck morality and everything I know
If I didn't hate this than I couldn't cope
Impersonate myself for what I used to be
Denial is all that's left now

Nobody (nobody)
Nobody (nobody)
Changed my mind
And it leads me to a new disease
Somebody (somebody)
Somebody (somebody)
Let it die
But it still becomes a new disease

Nobody (nobody)
Nobody (nobody)
Changed my mind
And it leads me to a new disease
Somebody (somebody)
Somebody (somebody)
Let it die
But it still becomes a new disease

Seething in my head
I'm suffering instead
I can't remember why
This meant so much to me

Doubt
Did I ever want this
It's all I could've been, it's all I would've been
Doubt
Did I ever want this?
It's all I've ever been, it's all I'll ever be

Seething in my head
I'm suffering instead
I can't remember why
This meant so much to me

Nobody (nobody)
Nobody (nobody)
Changed my mind
And it leads me to a new disease
Somebody (somebody)
Somebody (somebody)
Let it die
But it still becomes a new disease

Nobody (nobody)
Nobody (nobody)
Changed my mind
And it leads me to a new disease
Somebody (somebody)
Somebody (somebody)
Let it die
But it still becomes a new disease
But it still becomes a new disease
But it still becomes a new disease

Jason ended the song and the faint grey aura around him vanished. Thankfully, Hermione was the only, it appeared, that saw Jason's aura. Jason was still all smiles as the crowd roared its approval of the song.

"I'm gonna get a closer seat," Hermione said.

"I'll go with you," Harry said.

The two of them stepped over the golden rope and made their way closer to the stage. Harry constantly was looking over to the area where he saw Lucious and Voldemort. Nobody was there.

"It was just a hallucination," Harry thought to himself.

Jason looked out into the crowd and saw Hermione. His smile turned into a wide grin. Hermione knew that Jason could see her and she blew him a kiss.

"You guys have been excellent," Jason said, "We're gonna end on good note. This song should get your blood pumping for the next act. It's called Bleed It Out."

As soon as Jason finished his sentence, he began playing the guitar once more.

Yeah here we go for the hundredth time
Hand grenade pins in every line
Throw 'em up and let something shine
Going out of my fucking mind

Filthy mouth, no excuse
Find a new place to hang this noose
String me up from atop these roofs
Knot it tight so I won't get loose

Thomas began strumming his bass chords as Paul began playing heavy notes on his keyboard. Draco hadn't made a move yet.

Truth is you can stop and stare
Bled myself out and no one cares
Dug the trench out laid down there
With a shovel up out of reach somewhere

Yeah, someone pour it in
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out

With a twirl of his sticks, Draco began drumming out a beat.

Go stop the show
Choppy words and a sloppy flow
Shotgun opera lock and load
Cock it back and then watch it go

Mama help me I've been cursed
Death is rolling in every verse
Candy paint on his brand new hearse
Can't contain him he knows he works

Fuck this hurts, I won't lie
Doesn't matter how hard I try
Half the words don't mean a thing
And I know that I wont be satisfied

So why try ignoring him
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out

I've opened up these scars
I'll make you face this
I've pulled myself so far
I'll make you face this now

Hermione and Jason locked eyes as Jason played. Staring at her, his eyes reflected the savage look he had to him. She began to want him in the worst way.

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

I bleed it out
I bleed it out
I bleed it out

The crowd roared with frenzied applause. "You been awesome tonight, London," Jason said, "We are Firestorm. Good night!"

As Jason put his guitar on its rack to be taken off, he motioned for Harry and Hermione to meet him backstage. Hermione raced to the backstage entrance. Alice stood up from her seat.

"Come on," Alice said, "Let's go say hi to Jason and Draco."

Ron and Ginny stood up and followed Alice. As Ron walked, he noticed his right hand was starting to get warmer. Suddenly, a flame sprouted between his index finger and thumb.

"Bloody hell," Ron said.

Ginny and Alice turned to Ron and saw the flame. Ron snapped his finger and the flame went out. He snapped his finger again and the flame came back.

"That's certainly a new trick," Ron said.

Harry pushed through the crowd of people, trying to get to the backstage entrance. As he passed by the bar, something caught his eye. Harry turned and saw, on the wall and drawn in blood, was the Dark Mark. Harry tensed up. He frantically searched around the room for any signs of a threat. Suddenly, Harry felt a hand clap him on the shoulder. In a panic, Harry spun around and raised his fist only to see Ron.

"Whoa, take it easy, mate," Ron said, "It's only me."

Harry looked back where he saw the Dark Mark. It was gone. Harry looked around the area to see if anyone looked suspicious.

"Are you alright?" Ron asked.

"Yeah," Harry said finally, "You just startled me a bit."

"Well come on," Ron said, "Jason and Draco are waiting."

Harry nodded and followed Ron. As he walked, he shook his head of the cobwebs. "You're seeing things," he thought to himself, "You haven't had much sleep lately and it's got you seeing things. Nothing more."

As soon as that thought resonated in his mind, another, more frightening thought, entered his mind. "If they're not hallucinations," he thought, "Are they a sign of things to come?"


A/N: That's chapter 2, hope I've maintained your interest thus far...the songs were "New Disease" by Spineshank and "Bleed It Out" by Linkin Park...chapter 3 up next week at the earliest...
