Elements: Magic

And here it is! The end of this series! Many thanks for all your lovely reviews, likes and follows!

He stood there on the podium, eyes scanning the room.

He looked at the enchanted floor, reflecting the sand beneath, but holding the chairs just right. He scanned the room for his best mate. Wasn’t he supposed to be there with him, giving him support?

He looked at the beach, and the setting sun. The sky left pink and purple traces, with grey clouds, just enough to leave silhouettes of the people walking across the arches. He looked at Dumbledore, sitting there, drinking his favourite Sherbet Lemon. He chuckled.

His eyes fell upon the candle-lamps spread across the hall, dangling midway, and giving every individual present an enchanted glow. He looked at the scarlet lace curtains and the golden sunflowers. He felt himself swell up with emotions.

He could see his mum sitting on the front row, near the enchanted plant of white roses. She looked at him, with teary eyes and smiled. He smiled back, unsure if it were okay for him to shed tears.

His dad stood there, grinning and making their guests laugh. He looked so at ease, as if it weren’t that big a deal. But he knew how nervous his dad actually felt. He thought of how similar they actually were.

And then, the music suddenly changed. His heart missed a beat, as an old man reached the corner, flashing a broad smile. To his right was the most beautiful lady he had ever seen. To his left was a heart beating rapidly.

As he saw her walk down the aisle, with the prettiest smile she had ever adorned, he calmed down, reflecting her smile, radiantly. She looked at him and gave him an excited, yet small nod, which cleared his head of all his fears.

As Lily walked down the aisle, with her green eyes sparking, and the train of ger gown behind her, James realized that the world was truly what he was told it would be. Just a small wink from her was enough for him to realize that his world, was indeed magical. And maybe spells and charms had nothing to do with it.

Thank you! I hope you liked it. Please leave me reviews!

Elements: Fire

So, here’s the sixth part. I am definitely a little disappointed that it’s going to be over in another one. Thank you for your reviews and follows! Makes my day, honestly!
                  Title: Young
                  Element: Fire

He could hear the water in the shower, and a light hum of a song he couldn’t recognise. He could hear the crackling of the fire, and couldn’t help but smile at the peace that his, their life now was.

She got out of the shower, in a gray bulky jumper that belonged to him, and a pair of black pajama bottoms. Her hair was still wet, and left huge drops of water at the back of her jumper. She shuddered, while drying her hair, and looked outside to see additional layers of snow accumulated, since she went in to have a shower. In a minute, she started trembling.

He laughed, looking at her trembling state, and motioned her to sit next to him on the armchair. She snuggled close to him, as he summoned a dragonskin blanket from his drawer. They sat there, not muttering a word, for a long time.

‘It’s nice to be away from all that drama, isn’t it?’ she broke the silence.

‘It’s bloody brilliant,’ he laughed. ‘I was thinking, once all of this is done with, I might want to play Professional Quidditch for a year or two. What do you think? Take those years off. Do what I’m good at, and what I can do, without doubting myself. Yeah?’

‘That’ll be amazing! You can go off and be who you are, no dark wizard to hold you off. Maybe I can be a Healer at St. Mungo’s. The years I spent healing you four every month,’ she laughed.

‘Healer! Why am I not surprised! You’ll have to apparate in for every match, though. What could I do without knowing you’ll watch me put the Quaffle in and beating everyone’s asses?’

‘Or falling off the broom because you saw a beautiful girl, most likely a Veela, sitting right in front of you?’

He laughed at that, shaking his head. She snuggled in closer to him. Her thoughts wandered off, thinking about meeting someone like him, getting to know him, being friends with him and falling in love with him. She thought of their ride in the Hogwarts express in the first year, and how if somebody would have told her she was going to be in love with him six years down the line, and sit with him on an armchair, in front of the fire in his room, she might have laughed at them, at the very least, if not break their noses.

He looked at her, her hair reflecting in the fire light, the only thing as bright as the fire in the room. He chuckled, as a voice in his head said, mine.

Suddenly, she felt him move, and try to get up. Her face fell, as she realized how comfortable she was. ‘One sec,’ he said, as he stood up, and crossed the room. ‘I’ll be right back.’ She heard him open and close a couple of drawers across the room, and wondered what he wanted suddenly, that he couldn’t summon. She saw him walk back to her, with confident strides, but a small blush playing on his cheeks. She looked on with a quizzical brow. He stood there, for about half a minute, looking at her, hands in his pocket. Her heart pounded, as she saw him, suddenly go down on one knee.

So? What do you think about this? Please leave a review, and/or recommend. Always appreciate it.


Elements: Earth

              Title: Knight.
              Element: Earth

‘James!’ she called out. ‘JAMES!’

He looked around, with an expression so cold, it knocked out the air in her.

‘James, please!’

He continued running. She ran after him.

‘STOP. PLEASE!’

He stopped suddenly, as if by instinct, and she ran right into him, as his arms instinctively wrapped around her. ‘Please. Don’t do this. It’s not right. It’s not safe. It’s-‘

‘Lily. Please go back. Let me do this on my own. You’re inviting death for yourself by coming with me. Go back to the safety of your dorms. Please!’

‘No. I won’t. I’m coming with you. I will be there for you. I can’t let you go alone!’

‘Lily. As much as I love the fact that you’re feisty and everything, this is not the right time. They won’t even blink before they…’ James choked.

‘I know. But you aren’t any safer than I. Your parents have fought against him. You’re a Blood Traitor. They’re as bad as us, Muggleborns!’

‘Lily…’

‘Don’t. Please.’

‘I need to go. I need to see who all has he recruited. I need to see what he wants from me. If he had intended to kill me, he wouldn’t wait for me. He’d have done it before, right? So, stop thinking I’m going to die.’

‘I’m not thinking that you’re going to- uh… I’m just worried, alright? Please take me with you. I want to know you will be alright.’

James sighed. He took out a cloak from his backpack, and gave it to Lily. ‘Don’t EVER remove this. And run, if they try to attack. Get some help. Don’t, please, don’t fight all by yourself.’

‘What? You think I’m that stupid, huh?’ said Lily, cracking a broad smile. James couldn’t help, but smile back.

 ……………

‘Oh look who it is! James Potter! Welcome, welcome my boy. Have a seat.’

He conjured a chair out of thin air, and shoved James into it. ‘Ah, potential head boy. Brilliant mischief maker, plotter of plans, and a natural leader! Full access to the student body, and the insides of the castle. Just what I needed.’

James looked around, trying to recognize people around him. Bellatrix Black. Regulus Black. Lucius Malfoy. Yaxley. Goyle. Crabbe. Brilliant.

‘Potter. Let me introduce you to some of my followers, here. We form a society to kill the Mudbloods, to wipe out the impurity of the Magical Race. We form the Death Eaters.’

 

Lily looked through the thickets of the trees, wondering what Riddle is talking to James about. Honestly, she was a little frightened. She couldn’t, wouldn’t be able to stand it if anything happened to James, especially since she was in close proximity to him. She thought of what a great friend he had turned over the past couple of months. She smiled thinking of what a great team they formed, perfectly able to anticipate the other’s course of actions, perfectly supplementing each other’s skills and interest. She knew, at that instant, that she wouldn’t be able to bear it if she lost a friend. Don’t kill him, please.

Suddenly, she saw a flash of red, and James writhing on the ground with pain. She tried to see harder what was going on, and she tried not to scream. Her instincts told her he was going to be okay, so she waited. Soon, she heard eight faint pops and Riddle and his friends disappeared.

She assumed it safe for her to walk ahead and check on James.

‘James?’ She whispered. ‘James?’

She heard a quiet moan and rushed towards him. He was left, half buried into the grounds. He had mud all over him, as if he was pushed into a muddy stream. He had grass stuffed into his mouth. And he refused to open his eyes. Lily looked at him and panicked. The more she stood, the more he went into the ground. She sent red sparks into the sky, hoping someone would see her. Then, she conjured up an parchment, and quickly wrote to Dumbledore. She didn’t want to try any counter-curse on him. She urged him to keep breathing, and not to give up.

 ……………….

The next thing James knew, was waking up to a comfortable, white bed that was not earth. He dared to open his eyes, which weren’t stinging anymore. He put on his glasses, and looked around to chocolate frogs, cards and bouquets. He picked up the one closest to his spectacles, and smiled as he read the name of the sender. His smile grew euphoric, as he read the actual content.

You know that place between sleep and awake? The place you can still remember dreaming. That’s where I’ll be waiting.
