Harry Potter and the Secret Treasures - H.P.S.T Chapter 671: Evan VS Barty Crouch Jr.
Evan waved his wand lightly, and several trees around him came to life.
They stretched ugly branches, writhing and turning into tree-men to block in front of Hermione, Ron, and Crouch.
“Come out, I know you’re here!” Evan shouted. His voice echoed through the woods and spread out into the distance.
Evan laid his wand across his chest and walked two steps forward, seemingly defenseless, without any body protection.
He was looking for the place where Barty Crouch Jr. could be hiding, ready to lure him out.
Barty Crouch Jr. was also looking for a chance to get rid of Evan.
“The people in the castle will arrive soon. You don’t have much time left!” said Evan, looking around.
His spirit was highly concentrated and Barty Crouch Jr. was unlikely to continue to drag on.
The next second, the battle began!
Evan swooped forward to avoid a Killing Curse coming from the side of the slant without any warning.
He quickly waved his wand, and the magic barrier with silver water waves rose abruptly from the thin air, colliding with the dark green light, creating bright sparks, accompanied by a strange sound of water flow.
In the interval between his opponent’s attacks, Evan waved his wand at where the curse came from.
A dark blue light came out of the tip of his wand and blasted to hit a big tree in the distance. The trunk of the tree was quickly eroded and withered to a degree visible to the naked eye…
Evan heard heavy footsteps. Barty Crouch had dodged his curse.
In the light of the surrounding fire, he saw a figure clumsily rushing into the distant trees.
Evan did not give him a chance to breathe. His wand was raised high, and a rising pillar of fire burst out of the trees, five feet high, with a blazing temperature. Barty Crouch Jr. could definitely not escape if he hid in there.
He had to give up hiding, and Evan saw Barty Crouch Jr. in the flames.
In order not to be seen, he had used the potion to change back from the image of Moody. A pale yellow mess, but also a pale, paper-like face with a crazy, perverted smile…
His body was burned by flames and there was no scream of pain, but a little excitement on his face.
This guy was really a madman!
Immediately, the pillar of fire turned into a fountain, and the splashes of water fell on the ground and turned into poisonous insects.
They made a clicking sound, crowded together, and rushed to Evan.
The circular ring of flame, centered on Evan, spread outwards. Burned by the fire, the insects screamed in pain and distortion, and then disappeared into wisps of black smoke.
At the same time, the wind blew, and the light and fire that Evan had placed around him went out quickly, and the darkness came back.
The two people were panting and did not continue to fight, quietly standing in situ.
The confrontation just now had allowed Evan and Barty Crouch Jr. to know each other’s general strength.
None of them could beat the other in a short time and they continued the standoff, which was undoubtedly in Evan’s favor.
Barty Crouch Jr. understood that, too. He didn’t expect it to be so hard to deal with Evan; and he became a little anxious.
Immediately, his gaze fell to Ron, Hermione, and Crouch, who were protected by the tree men…
As the battle continued, Barty crouch, Jr., dodged Evan’s attack and aimed at Ron and Hermione.
A green curse collided with the tree men, and the wood chips flew, making a horrible sound. Soon, they became a mass of powder.
Instead of continuing to attack him, Evan had to stay in front of Ron, Hermione and Mr. Crouch to defend them.
There was no need to beat Barty Crouch Jr., and he had just to keep going…
Just then, Mr. Crouch suddenly stood up, as though stimulated by the fighting between the two sides.
He returned to normal and pointed horrified at Barty Crouch Jr., not far away. His eyes were wide open and his body was shaking.
“My dear father!” said Barty Crouch Jr. quietly, licking his lips.
In the dim light, the cruel and eccentric smile on his face became more obvious, and he looked at Mr. Crouch with great interest.
“Help me … help me!” Mr. Crouch was trembling. He pounced on Evan, grabbed his robes, and shouted, “I have to see Dumbledore … my son … the Dark Lord…”
“Damn!” Evan struggled and a shield came out. “I’m helping you right now. Lie down there.”
Mr. Crouch was totally out of his mind and scared of his son. He was clinging tightly to Evan.
Bang! A flash of red light hit Mr. Crouch. Evan had to blow him away if he didn’t want to die here…
Mr. Crouch let go of Evan and flew backwards, hitting a tree trunk heavily, his head bleeding.
“The Dark Lord has become stronger. He has gained strong evil power!” He struggled to get to his feet, waving his arms and he ran screaming into the woods. “It’s all my fault … my fault … I have to tell Dumbledore … he can’t let the Dark Lord succeed…”
He soon disappeared into the dense woods, and Barty Crouch Jr. hurriedly chased him up.
Evan hesitated for a moment, looking at Ron and Hermione, lying on the ground, and did not follow.
Mr. Crouch was finished. Barty Crouch Jr. wouldn’t let him go.
Evan couldn’t save him if he caught up now. Instead, he might put Ron and Hermione, who were here, in danger.
Although he hated himself for thinking about this, it was in the interests of both sides to let Barty Jr. finish off Mr. Crouch.
He had to let the plan proceed according to the original script, and the identity of Barty Crouch Jr. could not be exposed.
Evan was more concerned about what Barty Crouch meant by his last words!
Voldemort had gained more strong evil power. What progress had he made on the evil god?!
And why did Mr. Crouch suddenly run to Hogwarts? Crouch Jr. apparently got the news and was waiting for him here.
Immediately, Evan thought of Caresius, or the result of the vampire’s fight against Voldemort.
It was to say, at this juncture, he really added a lot of trouble to both sides!
Evan checked Hermione and Ron, they had only fainted, and Barty Crouch Jr. hadn’t killed them.
“Rennervate!” Evan whispered, pointing his wand at Hermione.
Hermione opened her eyes, her face was blank and she felt she was lying on someone’s knee.
Then she saw Evan and struggled to sit up.
