Chapter 26 Dreamwalking

It was two days later when we finally were able to meet at the Astronomy Tower with Lissi. I have to admit I was nervous about it, and Draco’s constant nagging hadn’t helped things. At one point I stopped listening to him and just nodded.

But, now it seemed to real not to be a bit freaked. “So you will go into my dream and suggest memories to come through?” I asked Lissi for the hundredth time.

Lissi shook her head, “No. Bella I will help you get to a level of relaxation where your mind will open up and allow me to enter. Once I’m in I’ll look around for her and try to decipher how she is linking herself to you. How her being around is triggering your memories. When I figure that out I’ll use it against her and try to pull her out onto the open.” She then stopped and looked at all those around us. “And like I said. When I figure it out and bring her out and into the open, there my roll in all of this stops. I can’t help Bella any further without exposing myself to a LOT of danger. So, she will need all of you at the ready to help her fight.”

They all nodded in agreement and I lay back on the floor. Lissi started chanting some words and I felt myself drifting. Then I heard the scream.


I opened my eyes and saw Draco standing above me. He then knelt beside me and gave me a quick kiss. “I’ll be here when you wake up. You’ll be safe.”

“Oh the sugar rush!” I heard Lissi say. We both looked at her and she smirked at Draco. “You are over acting this buddy. I am not going to put her in mortal danger or anything, I’ll just be helping her bring this woman out and on to the open.”

Draco then smirked back at her. “Just be careful Flint.”

Lissiana simply nodded and went back to chanting.

I felt myself once more drifting towards complete relaxation. All of the sudden I was standing outside of Hogwarts, I was in the woods and looking towards the castle. Lissi was there beside me. “Cool huh?” she asked and I simply nodded. So she went on, “From what I’ve seen so far she isn’t fully asleep. The link she has created is a really strong one.”

I was a bit confused and was about to ask when Lissi spoke again, “When she made a psychic link with you, she wanted to know how to get to you. So, probably out of paranoia, being scared of missing out on what was going on with you, she left it open 24/7.”

“You mean, she’s always in my head?” If she was I was really going to be pissed.

“Yup. Only, she can’t see what you’re seeing like we are seeing what she is seeing right now.” Lissi said.


Lissi shrugged, “Simple, she has no idea how strong she made the connection and she has no idea it works two ways. I got here a bit before you and I was already snooping through her head. She is sleeping, don’t get me wrong we are dreamwalking her instead of you, because she pulled us in automatically.”

“Oh.” I was about to say something else, when all of the sudden we were now in the inside patio at Hogwarts.

“She just fell completely asleep.” Lissi explained.

“Bella!” I heard Anastacia cry out.

Lissi and I both turned towards her. Her face was all contorted and I couldn’t make out a single trait that would help me identify her.

“You stupid little girl! If it hadn’t been for you I could have had it all!” Anastacia started saying as she made her way towards me. “He loved me and not your mother. That bitch stole him from me. But, I am done pretending. You are your mother’s daughter and you will pay for all of this!”

I looked at what should be her face and spat out. “You, you killed my mother! You probably even killed her just for pleasure!”

She let out a mad laugh. “Yes, I killed her and I would do it all over again. But, that day it wasn’t just her who I was aiming for. You should have died too, that way your father would have been free. Free and mine! Instead, I’ve had to go on pretending all this years.” Anastacia then stopped talking and her face was finally revealed. Only the face that I now saw I knew quite well.

“Hannah? How… how?” I tried to speak, but I couldn’t speak out a full sentence. She started laughing again and then I finally was able to speak. “You freaking coward! My mother trusted you! She was the one that made sure if anything happened to the two of them you would be responsible for me!” I shook my head to clear it a bit, I was still in shock. She had made a fool of my mother. My dad had been right. I instinctively then pulled out my wand to her. I was ready to launch at her when I felt Lissi’s hand stop me.

“You can’t duel her here.” Lissi said and I started to feel myself waking up again.

I opened my eyes and the first face I saw was Draco’s. I got up and hugged him. “It’s her. It’s Hannah, she killed my mother. She has always been after my father, and now she wants me dead.” Draco then tightened his arms around my waste and rested his chin on my head.

“Everything is going to be allright.” He said to me and then turned to Lissi. “How can we get to her before she attacks?” Draco asked her.

Lissi bit her lower lip. “She’s already here. While she was confronting B I walked around and poked at her thoughts. She is planning to attack B tomorrow. I don’t know how or when, but it will be tomorrow. Anastacia is desperate.”
