Hiding from me would do you no good
for I would find you no matter what
Were you near or far, big or small
My holder would get you, whatever hood you’ve got
What am I?
Answer: Alastor Moody’s eye
My gleam catches every eye, although I do not shine,
I know you want me, no matter’s the cost, for I’m the best of my kind.
Answer: ‘Firebolt’ broomstick
I am the child of hatred and love,
And without either I would not have existed,
Back then I portrayed survival and hope,
But now I’m a reminder of tragedy and loss.
Answer: Harry Potter’s lightning scar
For you, for anyone, and anywhere you’d want,
The result of my usage stays immobile and waiting,
My task is pretty simple, yet beware,
A mistake would last a lifetime, so keep concentrating.
Answer: Everlasting ink
Many are those who are willing to pay,
But there is no price I’m afraid to say.
I alone choose those worthy of my gift
Which lies at the end of a journey
That wouldn’t be swift.
Answer: The Fountain of Fair Fortune
