Vor Emalek looked at herself in the mirror.

"I'll leave you two alone," Gelon whispered, disappearing out the door. Vor Emalek focused, closing her eyes in concentration. Opening them she smiled at the glowering reflection.

"Isn't it nice to be free... if only for a while?" Vor Emalek sneered. Emalek glared back, loathing radiating off of the mirror. Vor Emalek could sense it.

"You're going to die tomorrow..." Emalek whispered, her voice faint as she hadn't used it in a while. Vor Emalek rolled her eyes, shaking her fingers at the reflection.

"Tut, tut. We shouldn't be making empty threats. You know what Gelon's capable of. The Master will die tomorrow."

"Ron's going to destroy Gelon." 

The vile creature shrugged.

"What ever you say." 

They remained quiet for a moment, both lost in the war not yet past. Emalek decided to speak.

"Why me?"


"Why me? Why was I chosen as a host for you?" Emalek repeated in a vile murmur. Vor Emalek smiled.

"You don't know do you?" 

Emalek shook her head, a hand placed on the window between her and reality. Vor Emalek smirked.

"My host can only be the one in whom my master owns." 

Emalek frowned.

"Ron doesn't own me..." 

Vor Emalek looked upon her opposite with total disgust.

"He doesn't does he? Where do you think you got your name! My name! Emalek! He owns you!" 

The reflection shook her head, tears starting to flow.

"That's not true! Why would he own me?" 

Vor Emalek smiled.

"It's not you persay. It's what you have. This is your own doing..."


"Your love... he owns you because you love him..."

Ron stood on the steps, breathing in the crisp autumn air. It was the moring of Halloween, yet Ron wasn't concerned. 

He could hear Harry coming up and smiled.

"I was wondering where you were." 

Harry jumped at the voice. He still hadn't gotten used to Ron's strange little quirks since he had returned. One of them being the capability to identify people with out seeing them. It kind of creeped Harry out.

"You need to stop doing that, you know." 

Ron looked over at the raven headed boy.

"It's funny." He noticed Harry's funny glance. "What?" 

Harry shook his head.

"Nothing... it's just nice to see you smile. You've been all serious since you've gotten back..." They were silent until Harry spoke up again. "Is she ok?"

"Hermione... yeah... For now." 

Harry looked up at his friend.

"For now?" 

Ron nodded.


"I guess it's up to you." 

Ron snorted.

"Us... if I kill Gelon and you die... Hermione dies..."

"Why?" Harry asked, ignoring the refrence on his own future.

"Hermione's connected to Gelon. Hermione's connected to you... You die she dies."

"How's she connected to me. We're not related." 

Ron smirked.

"She loves you..." 

Harry frowned.

"She loves you too..."

"I know..." 

Harry still didn't understand.


"She loves you like a brother, Harry. That connection is stronger that any connection I could ever offer... You die, she dies." There was a twinge of bitterness in Ron's voice that Harry caught. He was silent for a moment then patted Ron's shoulder.

"I won't let you down." 

Ron smiled.

"Just do me one favor."


Ron looked at him.

"Don't do anything stupid." 

Harry smiled.

"You know me." 

Ron rolled his eyes, turning his back on the woods.

"That's what I mean," he said, taking one last glance at the woods. Looking up at the sky his visage grew serious. "Come on... It's time to go. All Hallow's Eve will be in a few hours. We should stay inside."

"ALL STUDENTS REPORT TO YOUR DORMS NOW! I REPEAT ALL STUDENTS REPORT TO THERE DORMS!" McGonagall's voice sounded on the speaker. Ron watched sadly as some others headed for the entrance hall, instead of their respective houses. He was standing next to a nervous Harry. He was about to head for the large doors when he was stopped by someones yelling.


Both boys turned to see Ginny running over to them. Ron groaned as Harry ran over to her, eyes wide.

"Gin! You have to get to your room." 

She shook her head.

"I want to be with you. I can't stay up there while you're down here!" 

He pulled her face to his, shaking his head.

"You need to go!"
She stood her ground.

"I'm staying here." 

Harry could feel his heart breaking as he tried to dissuade her.

"Please Ginny." 

She shook her head, tears pouring freely down her cheeks.

"I want to be there..." 

Harry kissed her lips gently and slowly, savoring the moment. Her tears fell faster at the contact.

"You promised me..." he mumbled against her lips. "You promised me you'd stay safe..." She continued to cry.

"I'm not leaving you," she cried. He caught sight of someone and called over to them.

"Dennis! Take her!" 

She looked over to the scared little boy then up to Harry.


Harry ignored her, placing her arm in Creevy's. He grabbed Creevy's arm tightly.

"Protect her!" 

The boy nodded, trying to lead Ginny away. She pulled away from him and grabbed Harry, pulling him into a kiss. Their lips moved desperately against each other, trying to get as much as possible before they had to leave. Harry pulled away, his green eyes gazing sadly into her brown ones.

"This isn't good bye," she whispered. He didn't answer. Harry turned and ran off, hurrying over to where Ron was waiting for him. The look Ron gave his sister was something she couldn't describe. He glanced from Harry to her then turned towards the now opening door. Ginny turned and fled up the stairs with many other students. Harry walked out onto the stairs with so many behind him. Ron beside him. He gasped at what he saw. On the grounds were thousands of deatheaters. All of them had there wands down. Waiting.

"Promise me you'll be there at the end," Harry whispered to Ron. They looked at each other.

"To the end..."

A/N: I know it took forever but I got it in didn't I!
