HOW DID SLYTHERIN’S LOCKET GET INTO THE CAVE
Regards to my elders
Greetings ladies and gentlemen
Lumos Friends. This post is from the last installment of the Harry Potter series, about how slytherin’s locket got into the cave. This instance is not described in the movie but is told in the novel. J.k. Rowling’s ‘ Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows ‘ remains to be the fastest selling book on the very first day of release. The book was released in 2007. HOW DID SLYTHERIN’S LOCKET GET INTO THE CAVE
Sirius has been killed Bellatrix by the ‘ Avada Kedavra ‘ curse. Harry is in deep grief after Dumbledore himself saves him from the Dark Lord. During the start of the sixth year he grudgingly takes the possession of the Grimmauld Palace, Buckbeak( hippogriff) and Kreacher. The house-elf who betrayed Sirius to the Dark Lord. Now when Harry is seventeen and does not want to complete his final year. He decides to hunt horcruxes the truth about which is revealed by Dumbledore and the only way voldemort can be killed.
Harry is back in Grimmauld with Ron and Hermione tracing R.A.B. They find out that R.A.B is Regulus Arcturus Black, Sirius’s brother. Harry summons Kreacher and asks him about the connection between Regulus and the locket and where is the original locket as Harry had a fake one.
Kreacher tells them the whole story with weeping and whining of course. He tells that Master Regulus joins the dark lords army willingly as he feels the same way about wizards only being pure blood. One day Regulus came back and told Kreacher that Dark Lord required his service and that he must come back after completing that service. Kreacher and the dark lord go to the cave near the sea. There was a cavern in the cave and in the cavern was a lake in the middle of which was an island with basin with a kind of potion in it. Voldemort and Kreacher reach the small island via a boat and then the Dark Lord makes Kreacher drink that potion and as he drank he saw terrible things and called upon Regulus to save him. Voldemort takes no pity on him and laughs maliciously and when the basin is empty he puts the locket in it refilling the basin again with the potion.
He sails away and leaves Kreacher back at the island. Wailing and crying he tries to drink water from the lake. Bad Decision. The inferi pulls him into the lake but he apparates back to his masters place as he had told him to come back. Elf’s magic is different from wizards ,thats why he is able to apparate within the cave in which normal wizards can’t. Voldemort overlooked this. When he reached Grimmauld palace, master Regulus tells him to stay hidden. One night, Regulus comes to Kreacher, I think after finding how Voldemort is so cruel and he is meant to be killed, and tells him to take him back to the Cave. Kreacher takes him to the cave with him and to the same spot where he and Voldemort had once been. He tells Kreacher to switch the locket in the basin with a fake one, go back to his house and make every attempt to destroy it once master Regulus has drunk all the potion. Regulus drinks the potion and kreacher apparates back to Grimmauld as it is his masters command. The read of this chapter was really heart touching.
Rowling describes how far an elf can go to follow his master commands. Kreacher knew that his master loved him so much that he didn’t want Kreacher to drink that potion when he could easily have made the elf do it. This way Kreacher proves how he was loyal to the Black’s even if he betrayed Sirius who was never kind to him by passing information to Bellatrix who is cousin to Sirius and a Black.
I hope you liked it. Do share with Potter Maniacs.
