The Curse Of Artemis Essay

933 words - 4 pages

Severus entered the room slowly, half expecting Albus to be sitting behind his desk. It was exactly as Albus had left it, the annoying trinkets lining the shelves. Books left unopened on the desk. He moved closer into the room, his fingers trailing over the surface of the desk.
“This is your office now Severus.”
Severus ignored the voice, sitting in the chair he would usually sit in. He closed his eyes, slumping in it. “Just as you knew it would be. How did you know the Dark Lord would make me Headmaster?”
“Because he would want his followers in places of power, especially the person who killed Albus Dumbledore.”
Severus straightened in his seat and turned the face Albus’ portrait. “Harry’s gone, The Dark Lord has taken control of the Ministry…was this not the way you wanted things?”
Albus looked uncomfortable. “I never wished to cause you pain.”
“Save your excuses, I need to find the sword of Gryffindor. I believe Harry would have gone to Grimmauld place, everything is in place for me to join…and to keep Hogwarts safe.” Severus held a hand up as the old man went to interrupt.
“I knew Scrimgeour wouldn’t give it to Harry, was everything else passed on?”
“How would I know? You’ve prevented me from seeing him!” Severus snarled. “The last I saw the sword was in Bellatrix’s hand.” He pinched the bridge of his nose.

“Even as an oil painting you are full of magic.” The scorn fell from his face as he saw what was behind. “You made plans even this far into the future?” Severus shook his head at the tenacity of the former Headmaster.
“When dealing with someone as clever as Tom Riddle I planned for every eventuality.”
Severus held the sword aloft in his hand. “The other is a fake.”
“You need to get this to Harry.” Albus’ eyes met his as the portrait swung back.
“I will bring it to him when I meet with him.”
“I thought I made it clear that you were to stay here and look after the students.”
Severus shrunk the sword and pocketed it. “I have ensured the safety of the Hogwarts students as I promised.” Severus turned to face his former mentor. “My place is with Harry that has not changed.”
“Your bond has been destroyed.”
“You are correct, but he can still draw on my magic. You didn’t account for that variable did you Albus? You thought my magic would...
