Chapter 88: Evolving Conspiracy

Chapter 88: Evolving Conspiracy

 

He knew that if he was to be just a follower, he had to pick his master well.

 

Peter Pettigrew had a strange smile on his lips. If his companions were all killed by the Dark Lord, who could know that he had betrayed them?

 

His plan seemed foolproof. He began to sell the information about the Order of the Phoenix to gain the trust of the Dark Lord. Although Dumbledore doubted him, James, Sirius and Lupin testified for him, even though he was humblest member in their small group.

 

Peter Pettigrew knew too much about his three friends. They didn’t believe him completely, but the pride and blind arrogance blinded their eyes. Even if they didn’t trust him, they would still support him in the face of Dumbledore’s inquiry.

 

As long as he was still a member of this small group, the three of them will unconditionally support him.

 

“Stupid Gryffindor. They’ providing me with the perfect cover!”

 

After knowing that Dumbledore began to doubt him, Peter Pettigrew would no longer leaked information because he was not sure whether or not they were a trap by Dumbledore. He knew that he had to endure and wait for an opportunity that would allow the Dark Lord to fully trust him.

 

He still remembered that rainy night twelve years ago, when Sirius, James, and Lily found themselves in a pinch, and they asked him to be the Secret Keeper of James and Lily.

 

That was based on Sirius’s recommendation. Voldemort would be sure to come after Black, but he shouldn’t pay attention to such a weak, talentless one like Peter.

.

That was also what they have always thought of him, a humble, weak, stupid companion who had never dared to refute them. They considered him the most appropriate secret keeper.

 

They did not tell anyone about this matter. Even Lupin and Dumbledore didn’t know it. It was just a secret between the four of them.

 

That night, Peter felt he both happy and sad!

 

He had always waited patiently for his chance, and now he’s become Potter’s secret keeper! When he determined that Harry that the Voldemort had been looking for was in the house, he could not wait to find the Dark Lord.

 

He bowed down and sold James and Lily out to the Dark Lord. As expected, he obtained the trust he had always dreamed of. The Dark Lord was also told the way into that place, the ancient relic he had found together with James, Black, and Lupin in the forbidden forest.

 

There was a strong dark power hidden in that relic. The Dark Lord must have been there during his school days.

 

It was said that there might be a strong source of strength for the Voldemort himself, certainly not all, but Peter was not greedy enough to want to be powerful black wizard like the Dark Lord.

 

As always, as long as he had his hidden spot in the backstage, he was satisfied. Before in Hogwarts, he relied on James, Sirius, and Lupin to get that position. Now, the Dark Lord, a far more powerful wizard, will help him find his place.

 

Peter Pettigrew thought so, but who could think that the Dark Lord would actually fail and lose against a newborn baby?

 

For some time, he used to think that he was very close to success, and that he was able to see power and status before beckoning to him. However, this dream instantly shattered, and he had no alternative but to flee.

 

Peter Pettigrew had no choice. Apart from Sirius’s unending wrath, he had to avoid the chase of other Death Eaters.

 

The method he chose was to fake his own death. When the curse of Sirius hit him, he used a spell to make the whole street explode, leaving only one finger and letting everyone think he was dead.

 

Sirius Black took his spot as the chief culprit of the whole incident. Like he imagined, the proud Sirius did not explain to others. He felt that he had killed James and Lily by recommending Peter as a secret keeper. He wanted to go to Azkaban.

 

He managed to escape and his mother lost her son but received a first-grade Sir Merlin Medal, although he should have received much more than this.

 

Peter Pettigrew had seen with his own eyes that his mother had buried this medal and his own finger at his father’s tomb. On his tombstone was engraved: A brave and fearless soldier, a deserved Gryffindor, who gave his life against the dark forces of evil, making his parents proud.

 

Yeah, from his mother’s point of view, he finally became someone like his father, and for such a foolish reason she should be satisfied with her life.

 

Peter Pettigrew closed his eyes in pain. From now on, he has to hide in the Weasley’s house as a Rat. He knew he had to keep in touch with the magic world so that he could know the Dark Lord’s movements whenever he returns.

 

In the previous year, he saw the Dark Lord again in Hogwarts.

 

The once powerful Black Wizard had become a weak shadow. To tell the truth, Peter had been very disappointed. He couldn’t understand what was going on. If Voldemort was no longer strong enough to be scary, what was the significance of his own betrayal?

 

He did not immediately reveal himself. He decided to observe at Voldemort and see if he was as strong as before.

 

Pettigrew was thankful that he had done so. In the next two years, he witnessed Voldemort’s failing twice.

 

After seeing Voldemort fail again and again, Peter Pettigrew was in fear. He did not understand why the Dark Lord had failed. He obviously was incredibly powerful. But against a child, he kept on failing

 

It seemed that the tide had really changed; perhaps he should change camps again!

 

Peter Pettigrew awakened from his memory, something was moving outside. He quietly stretched his head and gave it a look. The time had already arrived at 3 o’clock in the middle of the night. Outside was the house-elf, called Dobby, who was packing things.

 

Peter Pettigrew narrowed his eyes as he felt like they were in similar positions.

 

They were all so humble, so weak. The elf used to be the Malfoy’s slave, but he was now the servant of the boy Evan Mason.

 

Perhaps he could, like Dobby, turn to Harry Potter and take refuge with this savior who defeated Voldemort several times.

 

This was not impossible. The events of that year were only known to Sirius Black. As long as Sirius is dealt with, he would be able to reappear in front of the crowds as a hero.

 

The situation had completely changed. Since Voldemort had lost his power, his party members and the Death Eaters who had not been caught in Azkaban should not pose any trouble to him. It was time to return to the magic world. .

 

The only trouble now was that of Sirius Black. As long as he was eliminated, nobody should know what happened.

 

Peter Pettigrew had a new strange smile on his lips. He thought about it. He could tell the others that he had endured the burden of humiliation for many years. He had guarded the only legacy of his former friend and protected Harry from the evil forces.

 

He could re-emerge as a sad hero. He was the greatest hero who defeated Voldemort. He could even apply to become the only guardian of Harry.

 

Even if Dumbledore and Lupin were skeptical, they had no valid reason to object.

 

This was really wonderful. Maybe the Ministry of Magic would consider re-awarding him with a Medal of Merlin. And then, he would be able to get back the power source hidden for him deep in the forest. Those honors, powers, he should get it all back.

 

Peter Pettigrew knew he needed a plan, a plan to get rid of Sirius Black completely.

 

First of all, in order to ensure the smooth implementation of the plan, he needed to disappear from the crowd.

 

He wanted to avoid the pursuit of Sirius Black and the cat named Crookshanks, and he could not explain why, but Peter could feel that the boy named Evan Mason seemed to doubt him. He had to be careful. After all, he was able to beat Voldemort despite his young age. As he knew, Evan did not rely on luck or Dumbledore’s help as Harry did. The boy was totally on his own and he defeated Voldemort by his own strength and wisdom.

 

This was terrible. Peter was afraid that Evan already knew something. He should hide first.

 

Then he needed a wand.

 

Of course, those two things were not too difficult!

 

The hard part was that he wanted to know Sirius’ position. If Sirius was found, someone in the castle would be willing to help him deal with him.

 

Pettigrew suddenly remembered that he had once made the Marauder’s Map with James, Sirius, and Lupin. This map could help him. He remembered that the Marauder’s Map was confiscated by Filch in their seventh grade.

 

If there was no mishap, it should still be there.

    Are you planning to regularly update this?

    • ExquireKurumi

      Can’t you see it at Novel Updates?? And please do read the previous posts and their comments instead of asking things that already got clarified earlier ~ _ ~.

      • Ben McDaniel

        lmao, I don’t use novel updates and it was a simple question. Get blocked retard.

        • ExquireKurumi

          woww… great that you start saying ‘retard’ when you are the retarded one, lol.
          I didn’t disrespect you when I replied, good thing to know that you are such a ‘great’ person, haha. such a ‘great’ person that you can already pass away.

          • Nithroel

            Oh piss off. First you come at me with some superiority and the post that smarmy “OOH its ALREADY been posted you should read next time (insert emoticon its okay bro im just saying)” Then you act like you were just trying to help me out, and trying to moral grandstand. Fuck off prick and stay blocked retard.

          • ExquireKurumi

            oh yes, you are so great, haha, don’t reply if you really think you are so ‘right’ haha.
            Just from your words, it can be seen that you have great upbringing.

          • ExquireKurumi

            if you are being playful, just reply that you are being playful, why bother adding others? digging your own hole. I’m not being superior, just that if you use your brain and some time and little effort, you can easily see the answers from your question, but oh well, I do understand not bothering searching for it, since others will answer. Guess it’s the difference in perspective.

    • Translating_Wizard

  • Reinari Va

    sadly with the speed of 10 chapters per month it will take around 10 years to catch up with current chinese chapter

    • Translating_Wizard

      Hey, here in Translatin_Otaku, we all know that this novel has more than 1.6K chapters. Don’t worry, the plan is to translate it at a much faster pace. But until the month ends, expect daily chapters! 😁

  • Marty

    A million thanks for taking on this novel, I was severely disappointed with Library of Time, after bringing it back since I put so much hope on them and then they took over a week to translate a chapter. Anyways I developed some sour grapes about them for letting us readers down after promises.

    Anyways my point stands super thanks for picking this up and giving it some life again, can you offer some form of schedule like maybe one or 2 chapters a week or whatever? I’d really appreciate that just to keep it on mind.

    • Translating_Wizard

      My pleasure ^^
      1-2 chapters a week? it would take me a lifetime to catch up with the novel with that pace! I’m working hard with J_Otaku now (He’s doing the editing), and we will try to give you daily chapters until May ends. After that, we’ll give you a schedule of 15-20 chapters (still to be determined), and we’re working on launching the account in Patreon where you’ll get even more Chaps!

      • Marty

        I bow to your majesties, we ain’t worthy =D

      • raol

        Thank you!!!

  • Sexy Smile Man ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • Sr. Thief

    I’m so glad you taking this fanfic, but my English is not so good to read and I’m limited in many important points. So I decided to abandon this novel. :/
