Summary: Secrets abound in the wizarding hospital named St Mungo’s. One of the biggest secrets was a patient who had been dropped off as the Battle of Hogwarts ended. He was being kept hidden while a young witch worked to save his life.
He had been left for dead. Everyone in the wizarding world thought he was dead. No one knew who had dropped him off at St Mungo’s. Through luck or divine intervention, he was under the care of a witch who not only knew wizarding medicine, but Muggle medicine as well. This combination may just save his life.
Elizabeth Haymen knew that she may not be able to save this man. She didn’t know why she was trying so hard to save him when she knew what he had been accused of doing. She knew what he had been like in school, but still she had to try.
