The path you have chosen
A restless road
No turning back
One day you
Will find your light again
Don't you know
Don't let go
Be strong Lucius found himself standing in the centre in what looked like some kind of a square with a bowl and a small waterfall. He turned to see two women standing behind him. One of the women was very beautiful with long brown hair and brown eyes. She was glancing at Lucius with a sad expression on her beautiful face. The other woman had long blonde hair and blue eyes. Like the brown haired woman, she was looking at him but with a sympathetic look on her face. Then she spoke in a soft voice. “Hello, Lucius.” At first, Lucius couldn’t speak because of the lump in his throat. He swallowed and then spoke. “Who are you?” “I am Lady Galadriel.” The blonde haired woman replied as she turned to the other woman. “And this is Piper Halliwell.” The other woman, Lucius assumed to be Piper, waved at him with the sad expression still on her face. Before he could say something, Lucius heard a soft voice inside his mind that alarmed him but at the same time Do not let the emptiness of your grief consume your heart. What had happened to your wife is not of your making. Tears welled in Lucius’s eyes as the memory of Narcissa’s death hit him. “She died because I wasn’t there with her to defend her.” “No, Lucius.” Piper spoke up. “There was nothing you could’ve done had you been there. You would’ve been killed too and your son would lost both parents instead of just one parent. He’ll need you if you and your friends are to survive this.” Just as he was about to ask what she was talking about, Lucius heard Galadriel’s voice inside his mind again. War is coming, Lucius, and there is no stopping it. The dark wizard who betrayed you to Sauron will lead a group of his supporters and Orcs to do one thing. Destroy the world of Men. You are the only one who can convince anyone who is willing to listen of this. “I don’t know who will listen to me if I tell anyone what you have told me.” Then suddenly Lucius came up with the name of the one person who will listen to him when it came to threats about Voldemort. Dumbledore!! Then the memory of what happened in the Headmaster’s office replayed in his mind. When Snape burst into his office explaining to both him and the Headmaster about his nightmare about Sauron and the plans that both him and Voldemort had in mind for their alliance. He remembered how alarmed Dumbledore was when he finished listening to Snape’s story of his nightmare. Lucius turned to Piper and Galadriel. “How long do we have before he strikes?” “You will have only a few days before Sauron’s forces cross over to your home demension.” Galadriel replied. “They will arrive with not just Orcs but Men as well. They will kill anyone who will dare to oppose them. Sauron has already struck fear in the hearts of your people with the slaughter of innocents and with the rain of fire. Remember, Lucius, only courage and love make you strong and is your best defense.” “See you soon, Lucius Malfoy.” Galadriel said. Lucius struggled to see through the fog that was now blocking his vision. After a few moments, Piper and Galadriel disappeared into the fog … Follow your heart
Let your love lead through the darkness
Back to a place you once knew
I believe, I believe, I believe
Follow your dreams
Be yourself, an angel of kindness
There's nothing that you can not do
I believe, I believe, I believe
In you Lucius woke up in a haze of confusion and determination with sweat pouring down his face. Hands shaking, he pulled a strand of hair back from his face and took a deep breath to calm his pounding heart. Then he grabbed his robe at the end of his bed and walked out of his room. His walk then broke into a run as he rushed to Dumbledore’s office to tell the Headmaster what he had dreamt.
Middle Earth As Piper opened her eyes, she nearly stumbled forward but Leo caught her before she hit the ground. Earlier that evening before everyone in the Fellowship settled for the night, the Elven queen pulled the Charmed One aside to ask her to accompany in a dreamwalk to communicate with a wizard who recently lost his wife to Sauron’s forces to warn him of the upcoming war. His name was Lucius Malfoy. Once she heard of what happened via another Whitelighter, she couldn’t help but feel sorry for the wizard. When she entered the dreamwalk with Galadriel and saw him for the first time, she saw the grief in his eyes when his wife was mentioned but she could tell that he was taking the threat just as seriously as herself and the Fellowship when Galadriel gave him the warning. Poor guy! It’s bad enough that he lost his wife to this bastard but now he has to bear the news of what’s happening to his people. I mean … Piper’s thoughts were derailed when she heard Leo’s voice calling out to her. She turned to her husband and she could tell from the look on his face that he was thinking the same thing she was thinking. “We should tell Aragorn.” Leo said. “Prepare him for more people joining us.” Piper was now confused. “More people? Leo, what’s going on?” she demanded. Leo had a grim expression on his face as he spoke. “I just got word from Sirius. His godson and several of his classmates were kidnapped by Orcs in a wizarding community called Hogsmende. Sirius is coming with us along with three people back home.” “Who?” Piper asked thinking that she already knew the answer to her own question. “The man you and Galadriel were just talking to, Lucius Malfoy and two other men, Severus Snape and Remus Lupin.” Leo replied. “They’ll be here in a few days at daybreak.” Piper felt a sinking feeling at the pit of her stomach as she realized how dangerous the mission was getting. She let out a sigh before she spoke again. “How is Sirius taking this?”
Later … “You have got to be bloody joking!!!!!” Leo winced at the tone of Sirius’s voice. He knew that the former wizard turned Whitelighter had bad blood with both Snape and Lucius over the years but he also knew that now was not the time for childhood grudges or pointing fingers as Cole and Spike pointed out. The demon and the vampire both gave each other worried glances before turning back to Leo and Sirius. “He’s not, mate.” Spike said. “I know you have bad blood with Snape and Lucius in the past. But now is not the time for schoolboy grudges or pointin’ fingers. They’re going to need us if we help them get your godson and his friends back.” “Spike’s right, Sirius.” Leo said. “Lucius and Severus are going to need our help along with Remus if we’re going to help them find Harry and his friends/classmates.” Sirius opened his mouth to say something else but then decided against it. As much as he loathed to admit it but he knew that Leo and Spike were right. Without Snape, Malfoy and Remus, he and the rest of the Fellowship wouldn’t be able to cover any ground without losing sight of the mission to get to Mordor to destroy the Ring. “All right.” He said. “But that doesn’t mean that I have to like it.” Leo gave Sirius a sympathetic look. “I know.” He said.
Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Three days later … “Absolutely not! Not a chance in bloody hell!!!!!” Lucius sighed in utter frustration and barely resisted the urge to punch Severus Snape in the face. Ever since the incident at Hogsmende which ended with the kidnapping of the Boy Who Lived, his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger and Draco, he was more on edge and became determined to rescue his only son before he met the same fate as his mother. But what was more difficult was trying to convince his best friend to come with him to Middle Earth to help him with the rescue regardless of his hatred for a certain wizard turned Whitelighter named Sirius Black. Convincing Lupin was easy enough. Lucius thought. Severus is so bloody stubborn when it comes to the Potter boy that it’s no wonder he hates him so. “Severus, you’re my best friend and I care for you.” Lucius said trying to keep his voice even. “But now is not the bloody time for a silly schoolboy grudge. My son is out there with those monsters and I won’t lose him like I lost Narcissa!!!” “He’s right, Severus.” Lupin said from outside the door. “Draco, Harry, Ron and Hermione are out there somewhere with those Orcs and this isn’t the time for pitiful grudges and bad feelings. We need you if we’re going to look for them in Middle Earth. Lucius is willing to work with me and Sirius in spite how he feels for us and so should you.” Snape looked like he was going to say no again but the angry expression on his face changed to a resigned look as he glanced at the faces of the two men. Then he sighed. “All right.” Severus said. “But that does not mean that I have to like it.” Lucius and Remus both gave each other esperated looks before they turned back to Severus and waited for the Whitelighter to orb them to Middle Earth. Well, what do you think? Please review and remember no flames. I will ignore them and I don’t have the patience for them. The song in this chapter is I Believe In You by Il Divo and Celine Dion.
