Harry Potter and the Secret Treasures – Chapter 40 The Unforgivable Curse

Chapter 40 The Unforgivable Curse

After Ron heard what Ivan said he jumped up and stared at him.

You say I purposely cast a curse that I have never heard of, shouted Ron

Thats funny, youve just used a powerful corrosion curse on me and youre telling me youve never heard of it. said Ivan as he flicked out his wand and pointed it at Ron, Unfortunately Ive seen this spell in a book about dark magic before and the description is exactly the same as the one you used.

Ivan, calm down! said the others quickly as the stood to their feet.

Haha, thats hilarious. said Ron as he drew his wand, I finally understand, it must have been that book that gave you the illusion that I was attacking you with dark magic.

Im calm and I know what Im doing.

Ivan calmly said, Give it up, Ron, if I go find Dumbledore


I dont know what youre talking about, no matter what Im not going with you. Im going to bed.

Everbody saw Ron lower his wand and head to his room.

He had just taken two steps when he suddenly stopped in place, his wand lightly quivered. The common room suddenly turned gloomy.

Ron, are you all right? asked Harry, worriedly

There wasnt an answer, there was just an eerie silence.

I dont think Ivan meant anything, he just..

Before Ivan words were finished Ron turned and pointed his wand at Ivan, it produced an eerie green light. But before the spell was fully cast Ivan subconsciously fired a spell, interrupting it.

Ron slowly fell down making everyone else dumbfounded.

After a few seconds Ginnys scream echoed in the common room, she quickly ran towards Ron.

Ivan what did you do? said Harry while panicking, You attacked Ron.

He attacked me first, you should have seen the green light that his wand was producing.

What was it? asked Hermione eagerly.

If Im not mistaken, it was the killing curse, he was trying to kill me, said Ivan as he recalled the green light which made him think of the Avada Kedavra curse.

An unforgivable curse, thats impossible!

Hermione gasped while the others were confused.

Hermione, what do you mean by an unforgivable curse?

I have read in books that there are three unforgivable curses, The Killing Curse, The Cruciatus Curse, and The Imperius Curse. explained Hermione, They are extremely evil, dark magic, once used, you will get a one-way ticket to Azkaban.

Azkaban?! said Colin with a trembling voice, Ivan said Ron was about to attack him with the Killing Curse.

I dont think it was Ron, something must have been controlling him!

Since being attacked by Ron in the Great Hall with the corrosive spell, Ivan knew that this wasnt a spell that a second year could master especially one with a broken wand.

Was it a coincidence?

But even if there was a mutation, there should be a limit.

Think of Ron spells in the past, except for catching a few thing on fire, or making him vomit slugs for a week, he cant do much.

When dueling with me, he suddenly produced a powerful dark magic, its too suspicious. But if Tom Riddle was controlling him, everything can be perfectly explained.

As a student, Voldemort must have read countless dark magic books.

This also explains why Ginny didnt know anything about the diary.

Ivan sighed, If all goes well the Chamber of Secrets will be settled soon.

There wont be any more attacks, and Riddle wont control Ron in front of Dumbledore. When he wakes up he will know where the diary is hidden. The Mandrakes will mature soon, Snape will use them to brew an antidote.

But I dont understand who would control Ron? said Harry cautiously, And what is his relationship with the chamber?

That doesnt matter, the question is what do we do now?

Hermione was looking at the door with anxiety. Ivan was holding his wand, Ron was laying on the floor like a corpse, and Ginny was crying beside Ron. If someone else saw this how would they explain it to them?

Let us go to Professor McGonagall or Dumbledore, they will know what to do.

In the hospital, Dumbledore stood in front of Rons bed with an unusually serious face.

Beside him was Professor McGonagall and Snape, who was bending over examining Ron carefully.

Albus, Weasley, this is. said Professor McGonagall, Worried.

A powerful curse is cast on his soul, poor child, he must have not known what he was doing, said Dumbledore as he gazed at the still resting Ron.

Obviously, this is why Weasley with that empty head of his can suddenly cast such a powerful corrosive curse. said Snape as he looked up in disgust, But luckily he hasnt been cursed long enough to become an idiot who knows nothing.

Snape took out a bottle of potion from his bosom and poured it down Rons throat.

At the same time, Ron awoke, he stared at them with a confused expression.

Where an I?

Then he noticed the Professors standing beside him and with a surprised tone said, How are you, Professors..

Thank goodness you awoke, Weasley! said Professor McGonagall, You were under the Imperius Curse!

Imperius Curse?

Yes, it is a very wicked dark magic, the people who are put under this curse loss their free will, it allows one to control the minds of others.

But I dont remember anything, what did I do? asked Ron as he shook his head.

You used a corrosive curse on Mason, and afterward you tried to kill him with the Killing Curse. Snape said with a slight sneer, But you obviously didnt succeed, with your poor magic strength, even if it hit him, I suspect it will only give him a slight nosebleed.

But I

Mr. Weasley, it isnt your fault, even some powerful wizards are susceptible to the Imperius Curse.

Dumbledore said with a dignified expression while looking at Ron and gently said, But I must ask you, do you have anything you wish to tell me?

No, no! said Ron while looking pale, he didnt know what to say, and hesitated for a long time before he softly answered, I dont remember anything, Professor!
