Katerina cackled. ”Nobody has ever captured me. I’ve already eluded your kind once. I can and will do it again. I’ve also eluded Death, don’t you know that? News flash, sweetheart: We’re not going anywhere,” she taunted. ”Lord Voldemort is back in the flesh - ha ha - and so are the rest of us!” While she had her selfish pride, it didn’t distract her from continuing to duel the petty girl. What did distract her, however, were the orders from the master himself, whispering words into her head to retreat. ”This battle is over,” she declared to Alexandra. ”For now. I look forward to seeing you in hell!” she said, before Disapparating into a whirlwind of black smoke.
Alex stood there, growling at the woman. Then she disappeared in a whirlwind of black smoke as all the others took off as well. And all around her were wounded or dead. So much carnage at a party that was supposed to be about celebrating the fact that the war was over. But now it was like it was starting all over again. That meant she’d just have to train harder. To make sure that things never got as bad as last time.
