A tall black man ran through the halls of the ministry. Above and around him the ceilings and walls groaned. Explosions and screams echoed in the distance. He ducked just as a red bolt of magic struck the wall next to him, shattering it to pieces. Without a moment of hesitation he returned a stunning spell in the same direction.
The Auror turned around to see pink haired lady approaching him. "Tonks," Kingsley shouted.
Tonks reached Kingsley's side, pulling him away just as a piece of rubble came crushing to down where they were once standing. "We have to get out of here!" she said. "There are Death Eaters everywhere, I don't know how they managed to get into the Ministry, but they're killing people left and right!"
A grim look set on Kingsley's face. "I know," he said, gripping her arm. "Go on ahead. There is something I must do."
Tonks gave him a bewildered look. "Did you just not hear me? There are Death Eaters everywhere. Nothing right now is more important than your life!"
"It is more important than my life," Kingsley said. He pushed Tonks into the fireplace. "Go."
"Kingsley!" Tonks shouted just before the green flames whisked her away.
Kingsley ducked under another stray spell, finally reaching his destination. He summoned forth a malicious anger within himself. Then with a wave with his wand he cast the spell. Roaring, billowing sound filled the room as flames began to form. Mutated shapes of creatures raced off, destroying the room. They consumed Kingsley, killing him before spreading throughout the Ministry.
The world would never know it, but Kingsley had given his life to take the first step in saving the world.
