PART 6: IMMORTAL REALM
"This is the immortal realm. Both of you were originated from the Magic Realm. It's like an alternate world to your world. Another dimension… Only very few people knew of the existence of different realms. Luckily, Voldemort did not know of it. If he had known, it'll be most troublesome, don't you think?" Dumbledore explained. Instead of making them feel better, the explanation only made both Harry and Draco crook their eyebrows, probing more questions in their head.
Harry opens his mouth to ask something. Then he closes it back since he had had no idea which question he should ask first. Draco looks like he's lost in thinking too. Finding the right question, Harry fights the urge to scream at the man who claimed to be Dumbledore in front of him. "Why are we here?" He asked.
The young Dumbledore only smiles at him awkwardly, like he hates to answer the question. "You were chosen by the spirit of the oldest eldest to be here. Your original ones from this realm, or to say that the Draco and Harry from this realm,… Well, they had disappeared," he simply stated. Harry and Draco began to furrow their eyebrows even more. "It is a mystery how they were missing. The spirits are looking for them right now. They are millions of realms so the search is not going to be easy," He continued.
"Is that a problem to us? I don't think that have got anything to do with us. You need to sent us back to our realm this instance!" Draco demanded. He had this sort of worried look on his face. It was like he didn't like to be in this situation. It's almost like he is scared to be there.
"I'm afraid I don't have the power to do that. You see, your original ones here… they meant a great deal to us. They both hold the destiny to defeat Voldemort. The Voldemort from your realm is no more… so even without you there, your realm will be just fine," Dumbledore said as a-matter-of-factly. He sounds as if this whole thing is nothing and unicorns can definitely fly across rainbows right now because it's all good and as if nothing bad will ever happen.
"That is a very selfish statement coming from you. We have our families. What will happen in our original realm then? Are we missing in our realm too?" Harry found himself asking many questions at once. Yet, there are many more questions lingering in his confused head.
Dumbledore nodded, deciding that situation is getting a bit tense. He sighs. "Yes. But, no worries. 1 minute in your realm equals to 1 month here," He stated.
"Is that supposed to make us feel any better? We don't belong here! It's- It's weird here!" Draco exploded. "My parents are drinking muggle's blood!" He added. At that statement, Harry gulps and finds himself feeling disgusted at the vision he had in his head of Lucius and Narcissa drinking blood. They look so scary already. By drinking blood, it just adds to the creepy list.
"Well, if you get to defeat Voldemort here, you will be sent back to your original realm right away," Dumbledore said, trying to make them see that it's hopeless for them to go back.
Draco shivers at the mentioning of the name. He had escaped from him once but facing him twice, might just be the end of him and he didn't want to go there. "No way. I'm not going to face that monster! Harry Potter would! I was never a hero from where I came from," Draco said. Harry looks at Draco in disbelief. It's a wonder only now that Draco acknowledges him as a hero. How wonderful… in a cynical way of saying it.
"But you are one here, Draco," Dumbledore said. Draco makes a face like Dumbledore is being absurd. Harry chuckles a bit.
"What, Potter?" Draco sneered at Harry when he notices him laughing.
Harry quickly gets serious and shakes his head. He clears his throat. "Um.. Nothing," he lied. He actually finds it funny for Draco to be a hero. He holds up another laugh inside his chest and pretends to be serious.
Dumbledore only sighs looking at the childish them. "Look, I'll explain again and answer any questions to you later. For now, you need to rest. Come and see me again first thing in the morning. Oh, and also, you will be having dreams about yourselves. Your dreams are the memories of your original ones here. So, you can gather information about a thing or two of this world from the dreams, yes?" He asked, making sure of it.
"Dreams? So whatever dreams we dreamt are memories? Like it really happened?" Harry asked in a dreadful manner.
"Yes, of course. Now off, you two," Dumbledore chases them away to the door and shuts it before them.
Harry looks into Draco's eyes in disbelief. So does Draco. So the dream they had previously on the carriage, it really happened? Then, does that mean that the Harry and Draco, the original ones in the immortal realm, are lovers?!
