RP: It Is Nearly Time
Date: 12 October 2006 Characters: Rodolphus Lestrange Location: Five Ashes Private/Public: Private Rating: PG Warnings: None Summary: Rodolphus decides it's time... or almost time.
Rodolphus leaned over the table and examined the map of Hogsmeade. His gaze occasionally flickered over to his gleaming silver arm and every time it did a tiny smirk flashed across his face before he directed his attention back to where it should be. His plans were in place and everyone was ready. All that needed to be decided was the timing.
Bella had put her foot down, much to his amusement. She would not miss out on this. She completely refused to miss any battle that would be so decisive. As her was rarely left her hand these days, Rodolphus had chosen to take her seriously. She had hexed two house elves so seriously earlier in the week that they had still not recovered. One of the creatures may not recover at all.
So the timing was still up in the air. It would have to wait until after Bella gave birth since he refused to allow her to risk herself to close to her due date. That, of course, had not gone down well but he’d been prepared and shielded so she’d been forced to spend her fury against his shields and the unfortunate house elf who has responded to her summons. She was going through them at a shocking rate. Thankfully that would end soon enough and steps could be taken to replace what had been lost.
He looked down at the map then picked up a quill. He leaned over and began scrawling final dispositions of his troops on it. He’d set the battle for evening so that he could take advantage of his vampires and he would use them to slow any reinforcements from the school. The werewolves would be set loose to create havoc as they wished. Far be it from him to restrict Fenrir and Natasha’s fun. Each of his Death Eaters had specific targets. Once they achieved those, they were free to do what they wished. The attack would be savage, unexpected and decisive. And they would win. Of that he had no doubts.
