Tempest sat in St. Mugo's in the Hospital bed. She had several broken bones, her muscles ached and her body was too soar to even move, let alone eat, which she had to do now."

Tempest touched her dulled fangs. She was longer immortal, she was mortal . . . and sleepy.

"Knock, knock," came a voice.

Tempest looked up at Harry Potter who entered closing the door behind him.

"Hi Harry."

"How are you?"

"That's a dumb question, but a considerate one. I'm a bloody wreak."

"I'm sorry about your cousin."

"I should've known, should've guess." Tempest wiped away her tears. "It took eight years to destroy him, eight years and I still fell for his stupid tricks."


"You can call me Tempest, its okay." She smiled at him sadly and so did he.

"At least you're awake again. You were out cold for almost a week. Everyone . . . they were scared."

"Yeah, they frighten easily." She laughed. "Harry can I tell you something and trust that you'll keep it to yourself for years to come."

"Why me?"

"Because, you're going to be my partner as Head of the Defence section in the Ministry, I need to know that I can trust you."

"This has to do with the future?"

"Yes. Can I trust you." Harry nodded and Tempest looked at her engagement ring. "After I killed him, something happened."



Tempest walked through Azcaban, followed closely bu a now mortal Louis, Heather and Cassandra. They wanted to say their goodbyes to Astrea. Astrea was standing there staring at Louis and Louis alone.

"Hello Zeph," hissed Entia, a sneer appeared on her face.

"He's dead," muttered Janessa.

"Yes, he's dead," said Tempest. "But you're not." Tempest pulled out three vials of opalescent water. She saw the light return to their eyes.

"These are for you," she said tossing them into the cell. They each caught one respectably both with grace and speed that would never leave the,. Tempest watched each one drink them quickly before gasping in pain. Each vial shattered onto the ground. Astrea was the first to regain herself.


"I cam e to say that I loved yo." Tempest could see the pain in his eyes. "I've always loved you, always will regrettably. I came to say goodbye Astrea."

"Louis, I love you."

He snorted. "Yeah, you had a funny way of showing it. Goodbye Astrea Sanguina. " Louis turned her back to her and Tempest held his hand.

"We came to say goodbye too," said Heather.

"You were like a sister to is," continued Cassandra.

"But you betrayed is. We'll always care for you but we will never forgive you." Heather and Cassandra turned their backs and swallowed hard. Tempest stared ay the pain and hurt on Astrea's face. Her eyes never left Louis as They walked away. Tempest looked at Louis and knew that she was going to have to tell him about what she sae sooner rather than later. Louis looked at her and stopped walking. Tempest simply stared at him sadly.

"I truly did love her." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a finely carved engagement ring. He saw the engraving and hugged him tightly. Louis sobbed on her shoulder.


Tempest stood at the edge of the tower, her eyes closed, her arms outstretched. She let the suns warmth wash over had and let the wind play sway with her. Tempest smiled and opened her eyes. She still had her vampiric senses and heightened speed and strength. Tempest looked don and wrapped her arms around herself.

"Be careful Mistress, you're mortal—"Tempest stepped off the ledge and stared ahead at the horizon.

"You'll catch though won't you Aidan?"

"Of course."

"I knew could trust you."

"Well you tell Draco?"

Tempest shook her head. "No. He already thought once that we had so little time together. He doesn't need to know about my death. We'll treasure everyday. He doesn't need to know."
Tempest closed her yes and listened to the wind rustling the her hair. Tempest heard the door opened and turned around to see Nila and Void.

"Temp, come on," called Void.

"Yeah Vlads about to take our picture. The Daily Prophet photographers also want group photo."

"Yeah, I'll be down in a few. Go on."

They smiled at her and left. Tempest looked back at the horizon and looked to her side. In her sight, she saw Blake, all grown up, standing there like herself with Aidan. Tempest wished she could be therefor him, watch him grow up. Tempest took a deep breath before leaving.

As she walked down the stairs, she thought about her life. The first time she met Nila on the train. Chad's first stumble, Divina's first scolding glare. Void's first show of arrogant brilliance. Zoltron's first transformation and Hydra's first threat. She wanted to make sure her son, her child would see what she saw. She thought about writing it all down. A smile crept on her face, that sounded like a brilliant idea, she thought.

As she continue and neared th entrance courtyard, she began thinking of a title for her memoir that would be for her children and them alone once she passed away. Tempest opened the door and saw everyone smiling and laughing. She watched Edana wrap her arms around Adrian as he laughed. Hydra and Zotlron were laughing together growling playfully at each other playfully. Divina and Chad stood opposite Nila and Void. Jason had his hand on Isolde's bulging pregnant stomach. Selene and Oliver stood with them laughing. Harry was the first person to see her, next was Draco. Everyone soon topped talking and she smiled at all of them as she made her way towards Draco. His smile brightened up her life. He didn't need to know, she thought as she kissed him and wrapped her arms around him. Master Vlad and mistress Starlet called everyone together. Tempest looked all around and smiled as Draco leaned his chin on her head. As the lights flashed form various angles, Tempest figure out the title for the first book of many. The Crescent fo Merlin.
