How to lose your best friend
Step #3: Plan for Revenge
"So what are you going to do?" Anna softly asked. Harry turned to her surprised. His facial expression was enough for her to elaborate. "What are you going to do about your headmaster and all of those who betrayed you?"
"Well, that is where you come in," Harry told her with a grin.
"Oh ye little faith, I will tread only carefully for the time is quick. Ye will pay for what ye have done. Your time is slow in coming; I will take the time only needed to impart this important message on you.
"ALL OF YOU ARE IDIOTS! HE IS GONE AND ALL YOU DO IS DILLY DALLY AROUND TALKING ABOUT POTENTIAL LEADS AND DOING NOTHING! YOU CAUGHT A DEATH EATER TWO MONTHS AGO WHO WAS BOUND AND GAGGED BY NONE OTHER THEN ME! YOU IMBECILES ARE A BUNCH OF FRIED CHICKENS RUNNING AROUND WITH THEIR TAILS ON FIRE! A GOOSE, BY HIMSELF, WOULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB THEN ANY OF YOU! YOUR FAVORITE PUPPET HAS BROKEN HIS STRINGS BECAUSE OF THE BLASTED MANIPULATIONS AND LACK OF FAITH IN HIM! YOU HELPED SENTENCE HIM TO AZKABAN AND THEN SCOFFED WHEN HE TOLD YOU THE TRUTH!
"Ginny- can you move over? Oh yeah sure, Harry. Have at them. HOW IS THAT WHEN YOU WERE GIVEN MULTIPLE CHANCES TO REDEEM YOURSELF YOU HAD TO GO SHOVE IT IN MY FACE ABOUT HOW YOUNG I WAS, HOW NAÏVE I WAS, HOW UNPREPARED I WAS! IDIOTS THE LOT OF YOU! AGE DOES NOT MATTER IN A WAR, EXPERIENCE DOES! CONSTANT VILLEGIANCE! NAÏVE! HA! I HAVE NOT BEEN SINCE I WAS SENT TO THAT HELL DUMBLEDORE CALLED SAFE! I WAS BEAT, TORTURED, AND NEGLECTED! I LOST ALL INNOCENCE THE SECOND I WAS ON THAT DOOR STEP!
"PETUNIA COULD CARE LESS AS LONG AS THE FREAKS DIDN'T FIND OUT! HOW RIGHT YOU PROVED HER! SHE THOUGHT THAT ALL OF YOU WERE BUNCH OF NO GOOD PEOPLE AND IGNORING MY PLEAS FOR HELP JUST PROVED IT! ONE DAY SHE ACTUALLY ASKED ME WHY THEY HADN'T COME TO GET ME! THEY WERE BOUND TO KNOW; AFTER ALL YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTING ME! I ONLY DEFEATED THAT MONSTER CALLED VOLDEMORT BECAUSE FOR ONCE HE REALLY NEEDED TO PAY FOR KILLING MY PARENTS! DUMBLEY, I AM SURE THAT THE ORDER WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT THE PROPHECY YOU HAD THEM GUARDING WAS A FAKE!
"YOUR SUPPOSED SEER WAS SO DESPERATE FOR A JOB AND TOOK JOY IN TRICKING PEOPLE TO BELIEVE IN HER FALSE PROPECIES! YOU CAN'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR OR READ OLD MAN! OH LET ME LIST THE WAYS YOU HAVE RUINED MY LIFE, DEAR HEADMASTER! LET'S START WHEN YOU IGNORED MY PARENTS WILL! THEY EXCLUSIVELY SAID I WAS TO NOT GO ANY WHERE NEAR THE DURSLEYS! THEY GAVE YOU MANY OPTIONS, WHICH YOU IGNORED! YOU THEN DIDN'T CHECK UP ON ME AT THE DURSLEYS! THEN YOU SEND HAGRID, GREAT GUY, TO CONVINCE ME THAT SLYTHERIN IS BAD BUT IT IS NOT!
"YOU HAVE HIM CONVINCE ME IN HIS INNOCENT WAY THAT ALL DEATH EATERS COME OUT OF THAT HOUSE - THINK AGAIN OLD MAN, WHAT ABOUT PETER PETTIGREW? COULD YOU HAVE BEEN DENSER THEN I THOUGHT? TO TOP IT ALL OFF YOU GIVE ME TESTS WHILE I AM TRYING TO GET THROUGH YOUR SCHOOL!
NOT TO MENTION YOU LET WEASLBEE IN THE ORDER WHEN YOU TOLD ME I WASN'T ALLOWED AND THEN YOU ALSO LET HIS FUTURE WIFE IN, TO TOP IT ALL OFF YOU ALLOW SOMEONE YOUNGER THEN ME IN, THAT'S RIGHT GINNY TOLD ME! WELL SEEING AS I AM GETTING TIRED AND I HAVE A LIFE THIS IS THE END… FOR NOW!"
"You ready," Harry asked his wife softly. She nodded. Her hand wrapped in his and then she let go. She took a deep breath in and then pushed forward the doors. Her icy glare turned to the headmaster in a second. Harry stood in the hall waiting for his cue.
"Oh ye here I come with a little story," Anna began singing. "Many years ago a wee baby was born, happy as could be. But lo at last it was not meant to be. His parents murdered in front of his loving eyes, so gracefully was he taken from the scene! To be placed into hell so carelessly and so grievously! He had no protector but himself against the people that shared his blood who then spilled his so many times!
"So innocent was he that he did not notice the trickery, the lies, and the manipulations of the man who in his eyes were his everything - his protector and his mentor. A lie he lived according to the lines of an old strung lie of someone so desperate. Put in a picture frame so carelessly nailed to the wall! No one listened when he said the truth instead the wail of guilty and so he was framed! What a way to treat a supposed friend he says! Not a year, lo it goes, goes by when the siren of war is rang!
His enemy, slain down to the ground – to be forever fallen, proves him innocent. What luck he comes by when an ally comes and knows the truth! Disappear he does with two to only reappear to be repaid for everything in vain! It has been some years and he is back again, oh he is not pleased. He will be heard! His vengeance will be sweet as a canary cream! For now, I his wife, step aside to let him in." Anna kneeled down and everyone's eyes turned to the doors. Standing in the door was none other than Harry Potter.
"The headmaster now believes you to be dead," Ginny informed him. "The Wizarding World is soaking in his words like he is water and they are the sponge." A tug on his lips indicated Harry was pleased with this information.
"Well then I guess we'll just have to prove him wrong," Harry said with a wicked grin. Anna and Ginny exchanged looks but knew better than to question his sanity.
"Dr. Potter, your patient is ready to see you," a nurse said as she handed him the chart. Harry nodded as he accepted the chart. He scanned the chart and he almost chocked when he read what was on the chart. The patient appeared to have undergone multiple Crucios over a long period of time. With a snap of the chart he headed into the room and was shocked at what he saw. Despite the fact that the man in front of him was mangled badly, he knew immediately who it was.
"Draco, what has he done to you?" Harry whispered sadly.
"How are you today, Draco," Harry asked as he checked the medical bags and Draco's vitals. Draco looked up from the book Harry had charmed for him so that he could read even if Muggles were around. The title would fluctuate so they didn't notice he hadn't changed books.
"Better," Draco finally answered. "I'm still sore but it seems like I'll be out of here soon." Harry nodded as he made notes on his clipboard. Draco than eyed his former enemy. "Why'd you do it?"
"Do what?" Harry asked as he looked up at Draco.
"Help me," Draco told him. "You could have shoved me off on another doctor but you helped me heal as fast as you could without making it seem strange. You could have let me suffer. Why did you help me?"
"Because I was once in that bed," Harry said before he turned around and left.
"Do you Harry James Potter take Anna Marie Walker to be your lawfully wedded wife," the man asked him.
"I do," Harry answered.
"How have you been headmaster?" Harry coldly asked.
