In the carriage where Victoria is, the wand fire is fast and furious and the dark wizards land but are repelled immediately. Edward has been hit by debris and only has use of his right hand, and the Auror beside him is down. The students look out their doors to see what's happening and then a seventh year student steps out to back Edward up, firing his wand over Edwards shoulder. Victoria's carriage is taking a large number of hits and she hears the children screaming. She sees the seventh year student is hurt and the other students are taking care of him. There will be a breach if the attack keeps going, but for some reason the dark wizards pull back to redirect their attack. Jack asks the students to help move Arthur to the next carriage, as the defence is spread too thin. As soon as everyone is out of the last carriage he fires several Reducto spells and cuts the last carriage away from the express. He moves reinforcements to the other carriages and Jack goes forward to to check the downed Aurors. He is sick to see so many down, but he reaches Victoria and stands with her. The remaining dark wizards fly in for a final assault, but the attack area on the express is smaller, and there are reinforcements, taking out wizards as quickly as they try to land. Jack steps over and fires a Expulso spell out of the express into the dark wizards and it takes out several. The word goes out to the Aurors to fire Reducto spells into the forming dark wizard and the number of enemy is quickly reduced. Finally the few remaining give up and fly away. Edward is the senior Auror and he goes through the carriages to check out the injured and dead and is sickened to see so many Aurors down. The students faired much better as there is only one serious injury, but many cuts. The healthy Aurors are helping the injured, and Victoria finds Cedric passed out on the floor and she hurries to stop the bleeding and tries to revive him. There is little room in the compartments as one carriage is missing, so they lay the injured in the passageway. Edward sends a Patronus message to Harry to let him know they need everyone at the station to help injured. Jack checks Victoria and he can see the fear in her eyes, and tries to help Cedric by applying pressure to his bleeding shoulder and head. Edward walks back and sits beside Cedric as he has lost so much blood he's becoming dizzy. The express pulls into the station and there are healers and stretchers everywhere. The professors and stronger students help carry them off the train. Harry is helping now but Ginny knows that later he will be in trouble to see so much carnage. He and Ron carry Cedric to the first carriage and assist him up. They help to load the severely injured into the carriages to get them to the castle. Arthur wasn't hurt as bad as some, but he has a bad concussion and Edward has lost a lot of blood. Stewart and Lily are there now, and are helping whoever they can, but Stewart counts the carriages sees one is missing and his heart skips a beat. He grabs Jack and asks him what happened, "I made the decision to move Arthur into the next carriage and reinforce the other Aurors. I destroyed the coupling to keep the dark wizards from having a base to fight from." Stewart pats him on the back and lets him know he made a good decision. After a few hours the train is unloaded and the students have been removed to the school. Jack is bent over as his adrenalin begins to return to normal. The uninjured Aurors give their memory strings to the Law Enforcement agents, and they are free to go to the school. Victoria hurries up the hill and to the hospital to see Cedric. The healers have gotten some potions in him to replenish his blood and closed his wounds, and this time he may live. The carriages are in terrible condition, and another engine will have to be dispatched to push the last carriage into Hogsmeade to be destroyed, and in fact a number of the carriages will have to be destroyed. Jack finds Emily and she's crying, as she thought he was one of those injured, so he holds her trembling body while she cries. The students are sitting around the great hall in shock, many are crying to relieve the stress, and when Harry walks in he flashes back to the first battle of Hogwarts and the scene is the same as he looks around. Ginny grabs him and holds him tightly, "My Harry, this isn't your doing and the children need you to be strong." His demeanour changes and he sits down with the other professors who are in shock. But they will not let the children see them this way and each give a good face. The headmaster says there is food for those who want to eat, and the others may retire to the dorms. He is splitting the first year students into four equal groups and for tonight they will go to the designated dorm to sleep. Tomorrow morning there would be a sorting exercise and everyone will return.
Victoria is sitting beside Cedric's bed, and Arthur and Edward are in the next beds down. The wireless is carrying the attack, but they are saying the attack came in retaliation for arresting their benefactors. It seems the future of the nine ex-members of the Wizengamot just got worse as the news has made the body determined to make examples of them, as terrorist attacks on children will not be tolerated. At Hogwarts the injured are cared for and the less serious are released. Two Aurors are dead and their bodies are returned to the Ministry until their families are notified. Jack sits with the students in the common room and does not remove his uniform as he walks around and lets them know that everything will be fine now and they can relax. Ginny and Harry walk to the hospital to check their children. Harry's hands are shaking to see three of his grandchildren seriously injured. He walks to each and kisses them on the head and tells them how much he loves them. Ginny is holding Victoria, who is sobbing as she thinks she may lose the man she just married. The healers tell the family if Cedric survives the night, he will make it. Harry and Ginny sit in chairs nearby with Victoria, and they wait. Stewart and Lily return to the Ministry and report the attack to the Minister who sits at his desk with his head down.
