Sean’s hand holding the letter was almost trembling, and he swallowed his saliva.
In the letter, Grindelwald used a large text to explain the principle of the Sorcerer’s Stone to create an immortal body, and one word kept appearing, Eternal Life.
Sean has not been exposed to things related to alchemy, and even if he can’t understand Grindelwald’s explanation, looking at it makes his body shake.
In the letter, he mentioned the experiment many times in an extremely calm and casual manner, and the so-called experiments will be carried out on living people. The end of the letter reads.
(Albus, I am very sorry about what happened to Ariana. But I’m sticking to my philosophy, which is the highest goal of my life, and the only one who can understand me is you, Albus.
(We’ve talked about the Sorcerer’s Stone so many times. I’m talking about a method with a high probability of success, which will make all of the efforts up until now.
This is the only thing I regret in my life, and it’s the first time I feel sorry for you. Because I will do my best to solve Arianna’s situation so you no longer need to carry this burden. Come on, my friend, be the person that I want you to be. A new era will start with us.
Best Regards, Gellert)
After reading the letter, Sean unconsciously took a deep breath. Much like what he had guessed, the conflict between Dumbledore and Grindelwald still broke out, probably related to Dumbledore’s younger brother Aberforth, and Ariana was drawn into the conflict.
The difference is that Ariana did not die this time because of an accident. Although they saved her life, she still suffered, and Dumbledore and Grindelwald broke up because of this.
Obviously, the relationship between the two has not completely broken down. It took Grindelwald a long time to find the idea of making a body from the Sorcerer’s Stone. He wanted to use this to restore Dumbledore’s trust and let the two do things together again.
Bagshot failed to fulfill Grindelwald’s last favor, and Dumbledore did not receive this letter. What Sean was even more curious about was that the letter was supposed to come with a package, but Bagshot couldn’t find that thing.
What’s more amazing, this is a letter that has an effect similar to a Pensieve.
In front of his eyes, the young Dumbledore and Grindelwald were having a great moment. The two talked about magic, ideas, and their dreams. Even Sean could hardly imagine the two being together.
He followed the two up to the second floor, during which he saw Dumbledore’s younger brother, Aberforth. He was not very kind to the two of them. He walked between them stiffly and bumped Grindelwald on the shoulder.
Grindelwald whistled, smiled provocatively at Aberforth, but was pulled away by Dumbledore. They came to an attic and sat down opposite each other in front of an unburned fireplace.
Sean blinked. He felt like he was about to get goosebumps just from watching this. The decoration here is familiar to him. When he went from the Vanishing Cabinet to Nurmengard, the room furnishings were exactly the same as now.
Grindelwald sat back on the chair and comfortably crossed his legs on the coffee table. His expression was lazy, “Albus, you are out of place in this family.”
Dumbledore didn’t refute but just explained, “Aberforth just thinks that I’ve paid too little attention to Ariana recently.”
Grindelwald smiled, “They have trapped you, trapped one of the greatest wizards of this century.”
“Don’t say that, Gellert.” Dumbledore tried to talk back.
Dumbledore has always been at home because of taking care of his sister. He is indeed somewhat dissatisfied. He felt trapped in a boring village with family responsibilities, and Grindelwald’s words captivated him.
Seeing Dumbledore’s expression, Grindelwald smiled slightly. He was very satisfied with the response and quickly changed the subject, “Albus, I got some news about the Elder Wand.”
Dumbledore’s eyes lit up all of a sudden, “Do you know where it is?”
“Of course,” Grindelwald switched legs, “Gregorovitch.”
“Gregorovitch?” Dumbledore asked, “I remember it was just a rumor. Like when we track the first owner of the Invisibility Cloak, Ignotus Peverell, and the rest of his family tree. But we haven’t found any clues.”
“I’ve got the exact information. Gregorovitch wants to use the Elder Wand to boost his reputation as a wandmaker. While most people think he’s lying, I’m sure that the Elder Wand is in his hands.”
Dumbledore deeply believed in him, and he became excited, “I’m looking forward for the Elder Wand.”
“It’s not just the Elder Wand, Albus,” Grindelwald licked his lips, “Remember that our goal is to find The Three Deathly Hallows. As long as we can obtain them all, we can remove the “Statute of Wizarding Secrecy”. When the time comes, Ariana will be able to live comfortably in the sun. Under the new order, every witch and wizard doesn’t have to hide in this kind of place anymore.”
Dumbledore’s breathing became heavier, and the two looked at each other with more and more smiles on their faces. Grindelwald reached out and waved. Two goblets filled with pale yellow liquid flew into their hands.
The two drank it down in one gulp. The smiles on their faces were full of admiration and expectations for the future.
“For the greater good.” Dumbledore spoke first, and Grindelwald firmly grasped Dumbledore’s hands.
Sean watched all this quietly. If all this went well, the world would be very different today under their management.
Does that mean that if the letter and the package were passed on to Dumbledore by Bagshot, the two would be reconciled? Will they still work together to achieve this goal?
Sean’s breathing became more and more heavier.
The letter that was not handed for decades may have changed the entire history of the wizarding world itself.
