You looked around. It was so dark you couldn't make out the features of anyone around you but there were other people there. "Y/N?" a voice said. Luna's dreamy voice was unmistakable.
"Luna? What are you doing here?" you asked. You didn't know Luna too well but you had seen her around Hogwarts and heard people calling her Loony Lovegood. She didn't seem that bad in your opinion. "They took me because my dad is the editor for the Quibbler," she answered.
"Oh, I'm sorry. My parents thought that it was good that he was on Harry's side."
"Yeah..." she trailed off. You tried to look around and see who else was in there. There were two other people and a... goblin. "Luna?" you asked.
"Who else is in here? In this cellar I mean."
"Mr. Ollivander and Dean. And that goblin's name is Griphook. He doesn't talk much."
"Mr. Ollivander? Dean?" you called out. "I'm over here," a voice spoke. That had to be Dean. He was sitting in the corner of the cellar. The only other person was a figure slumped against the wall and sitting on the floor. That was Mr. Ollivander. Harry said he saw Mr. Ollivander being tortured by Voldemort. Something about a wand...
No one came down to the cellar which surprised you. Wouldn't they make sure you were still there? It had been hours since the two men brought you to the manor. No one really spoke. The dungeon was quiet and smelled like mold. There was no light either so you were basically sitting in absolute darkness. Every so often Luna would hum to herself or Dean would cough.
Finally, you decided to speak. "Do they bring you food and water? Do they do anything to you?" You asked the last question a little quietly, afraid of the possible answer. "They bring us food sometimes. And water. They haven't done anything to me. They tossed me in here and left. Just like they did to you. Mr. Ollivander hasn't gotten the same treatment. He's been down here for a year," Luna answered.
A year? Voldemort has kept him as a prisoner for a year? What if he does that to you? And what happened to Remus? They never brought him. Did... Greyback kill him? No, Remus can't be dead. He can't be. But what if he was? The thought of Remus being dead tormented your mind and kept you from sleeping that night. You wouldn't be able to live with yourself if Remus died. He was so important to you. The most important person in your life. You... loved him. There was no denying it. With the idea of never seeing him again your stomach lurched, making you want to puke your guts out even though you hadn't eaten. He had to be okay. If he isn't...
After spending so much time with Remus and developing these strong feelings for him you felt empty. What if you were all alone? What if you have lost the person you love above all others? Your parents died and now... Remus might be too.
You had assumed it was hours later, probably early the next day when someone came down there. It was one of the men that had taken you. He carried multiple trays of food and sat them on the floor and left without a second glance at any of you. He was carrying out Voldemort's orders. They were all his followers. You couldn't fathom why anyone would want to live that kind of life.
You all sat in that dungeon for hours. It was cold, so cold. And the air was damp. Dew stuck to your forehead. You had curled yourself into a ball and laid in the corner of the cell when you heard raised voices coming from upstairs. It sounded like... no, it couldn't be. Hermione?
Not but a few moments later the door to the cellar opened, casting in a sliver of light and down walked Harry and Ron. You couldn't believe it. How did they get here? As soon as the door shut again Harry and Ron turned to you. "Y/N! We heard you were captured! Remus was on the radio, on Potterwatch. He said they had taken you. He escaped from Fenrir Greyback. I can't believe it! Are you alright?" Ron rushed out.
The only thing your brain registered was that Remus was alive. He was alive. A wave of relief flooded through you. He was alive. But... would you ever see him again? "Y/N?" Ron said again.
"Oh yes I'm quite alright. I'm just glad Remus is okay. How did you two get down here? Is Hermione with you?"
"There's a Taboo on You-Know-Who's name. Harry over here said it and they captured us. They aren't sure if it's Harry though. The jinx has just worn off, but his face swelled. It was massive. And yeah, Hermione is with us. Bellatrix wanted her for some reason. She was on the list of muggle borns. We need to find a bloody way to get out of here," Ron huffed.
"First off, we can't do anything if we can't see. We need to get out of these ropes then you need to use the Deluminator. You have some light in there," Harry said.
Luna walked over and worked on the ropes with a nail until Ron told her to get the Deluminator out of his pocket so she could see. She clicked open the Deluminator and the cellar's torches were filled with light. You could see everything a lot clearer now. Ron and Harry both looked rough. Mr. Ollivander looked the worst. He resembled a skeleton. Hermione's screams could be heard from upstairs and Ron winced at the sound.
Eventually Luna had gotten them both out of their bindings. Harry began to look around until he started rifling through Hagrid's pouch. He took out the Snitch that Dumbledore gave him first, then a shard of mirror. He dropped it and began to yell at it for help. You didn't have any better ideas so you stood and watched.
Hermione and Bellatrix's screams could be heard from upstairs. Ron looked absolutely crestfallen every time he heard Hermione's voice. It was obvious they liked each other but they wouldn't realize it. Just like you hadn't realized, or didn't acknowledge, your feelings for Remus.
After another one of Bellatrix's shrieks, Harry hurried over to the goblin in the corner and pleaded with him to lie about the sword they had. There were footsteps coming down the cellar stairs and Draco yelled out for everyone to line up on the wall. Everyone moved over as told while Ron clicked out the lights with his Deluminator.
Draco rushed down and took the goblin then returned upstairs. A moment later there was a CRACK! Dobby was standing in the cellar. Ron clicked on the lights and tried not to yell. Harry asked Dobby some questions and then ordered him to take you, Luna, Mr. Ollivander, and Dean to Shell Cottage, where Fleur and Bill lived.
He obliged and stuck out his hands. You four held onto his hands and disappeared with a CRACK! The first thing you noticed was how fresh the air was and the sound of waves.
