Lol, ich hoff es ist okay so. Razz

Knockturn Alley

Darkness, nothing but darkness surrounded me. Not only just the darkness of night! No, life itself was filled with darkness. I lived in dark times after all, unfortunately. I had realized and accepted this fact faster than the others, as was often the case. That was why I stood here in this damned alley and tried, even in the darkness, to blend in further with the shadows.
I pulled the hood of my black robe far down over my face, to avoid any chance of being recognized. I was hurrying purposefully towards my goal over the worn cobblestones, like all the other disguised shapes.

No one here was interested in anyone else because everyone had something to hide.

Tonight, I would implement the first part of my plan. Afterward, I could begin to carry out the rest of my life plan, step by step. It would not be easy, but what ever was, in life?

For he was back!

Him, embodiment of ultimate evil, who had been on our heels since our first year at Hogwarts. Now a lot was about to change.

Poor Harry!

I still felt awfully sorry for him, as he had been chased by him from the very beginning. And Harry had played a major role, had been cast in the lead, as it was his blood that made the reincarnation of Voldemort possible. As for me, I would not be Hermione Jean Granger if, from the first moment Harry reappeared from nowhere with Cedric’s dead body, my brain had not kicked in.

Yes, I was sad, even devastated by the events, but I never took the time to grieve. In the end, it did not help in any way and it certainly did not bring Cedric back from the dead. I still could not grasp it, Cedric, the good and handsome Hufflepuff, was no longer among us. Later that evening in the hospital wing, Harry had given Ron and me a summary of everything that happened at the graveyard, but I did not allow myself to mourn. Rather, I had to spring into action! He had gathered his loyal followers around him and would soon be getting back to his old strength, and that was why I was standing here, at midnight, in Knockturn Alley, trying to become one with the darkness. A new era had begun, now that he had returned. Nothing would ever be the same as during the past fourteen years! Our time of peace and quiet was irrevocably over!

Now it was time to prepare for the fight, the war coming. Time was running out and I was willing to use however much I could grasp. A smile appeared on my lips, as my thoughts wandered towards anyone who could claim to know me. I imagined how all of them, the Weasleys, the professors, the other students, their parents, and Harry, would have a heart attack if they knew where geeky little Miss Gryffindor roamed about at this time of the day.

Here, you could get everything your heart desired, if the price was right.

Anyone who dared venture into Knockturn Alley knew that they walked on forbidden, illegal ground, and also knew the consequences. I was aware of that as well and I was ready to take the risk, because I knew I would never get what I desired the legal way. Indeed, what those who believed they had known me for years did not, in fact, know, was that I was not as good, dear, naive, and compliant as they thought.

My grin became downright nasty.

I knew how to conduct my questionable activities under the cover of darkness, often late at night and always in secret. NO ONE ever noticed me. If they knew they would be truly shocked by my actions, since in people's perception Harry and Ron were the two driving forces of our trio, the ones who started the dangerous and forbidden actions, not me, the prim and proper Hermione.

Not even Harry and Ron knew about my activities inside Hogwarts. They did not have the tiniest clue what was going on because I would bet my right hand they would also not approve. But enough of that, I needed to continue further, way deeper into the alley. I tried to go ahead as discreetly as possible.

I could not suppress a little shiver, for the environment was too surreal, too squalid. Here drifted the vermin of the magical society. Thieves and murderers. It was a dangerous path to tread. The vermin felt so comfortable here that it was as unsafe in the daylight as during the night. The dark alley, which was bigger than one would have thought, was showcasing everything that Diagon Alley offered but in a broader variety, and what I saw in the displays fascinated me very much. I would return at another point, when I had more time, as I could really use some of those products.

I carefully moved towards my target. Since I had never been here, I allowed my senses and my research to lead me. I had been planning this excursion for the past two weeks, and yesterday I had prepared myself explicitly for this late night shopping spree. I did not want anything left to chance. It was way too dangerous. Although, in the last few years, I had shown that I attracted danger as well as adventure, and I loved it ; otherwise I would never have developed such a close friendship with Harry Potter, who was a guaranteed magnet for such situations.

Yes, carrying on alongside Harry was good practice. But to be able to cope with this situation alone and on my own, and to be successful, that required careful planning and preparation...
