Chapter 12.

"Narcissa Malfoy?" Lily asked, worried. Severus nodded. "What is she doing here? She's a Death Eater."

"No, she is not," Severus stared at her. "Her husband is, but she's not."

"How do you know that?" Lily asked, confused.

"We've been friends since our…fight…And I know her as well as she knows me. She supports her husband but she's not a Death Eater," Severus said and Lily tensed. "And I know her as well as she knows me." Lily got upset.

"We cannot trust her," Lily said, coldly.

"I trust her, Lily," Severus said, and met her eyes. She was afraid. "She's a good person."

"Stop defending her!" Lily raised her voice, avoiding his gaze. "Maybe you know her, but I don't! I don't want her near my kids."

"I shouldn't be telling you this, but," Severus started, slowly. "She's protecting your children." Lily turned to face him. She was shocked.

"She is what?" Lily asked, confused.

"She's protecting your children. I don't know why, but Dumbledore says that he can't tell her the reason, at least not now." Lily rolled her eyes and bit her lip.

"Do you know what it is?" Severus asked her, but she didn't answer. "Lily?"

"I can't tell you now, but I will soon," she said, and made her way to the kitchen. "It's 3 pm, Sev. You should be going to your class."

Potion's chamber.

Gryffindor and Slytherin were together in the classroom. All of them were commenting about the new DADA teacher.

"I can't wait to be in DADA," A boy from Gryffindor said. "I wanna see our sexy teacher, actually."

"Have you seen her? She's super hot!" A Slytherin said, and Draco turned to face him.

"Are you talking about my mother?" Draco asked, upset. The boy stared at him and smiled.

"And what if I was talking about her, Malfoy?" Draco was going to punch him in the face, when Severus got in.

"If I hear comments about Professor Narcissa in my class," He said, staring at the Slytherin. "You'll have detention for two days and a test tomorrow. Is that clear?" Everyone nodded and Draco smiled at his godfather.

"I thought that he was going to be upset," Ron whispered to Harry's ear. "But he's not. He's defending her."

"Maybe he likes her," Eleanor whispered, and Harry and Ron turned to face her.

"What are you talking about, Ms Potter?" Severus asked them, getting closer to them. His eyes met Eleanor's and she looked away.

"Nothing, professor," Eleanor lied and Snape nodded.

Snape was upset, so he made the class impossible, but once it was over, he turned to Harry and Eleanor.

"See you in my office at 8 pm. Bring your notebooks and wands." Severus said, and the siblings nodded.

"Professor," Draco said, walking towards Snape. "I have detention with you too."

"What did you do, Draco?" Severus asked, rolling his eyes. Before Draco could answer, Hermione spoke.

"I have detention with you too, professor," Hermione said, blushing.

"I wanna hear a good explanation," Severus said, taking his books from his desk. "But not now. See you at 8 pm." He said, and the four of them left.

"Why do you have detention, Hermione?" Harry and Ron asked her. Eleanor didn't say anything.

"Malfoy, Eleanor and I had a little…argue," Hermione said, but before Harry could yell at his sister, Hermione added. "It's not Eleanor's fault. She was helping me."

"Eleanor!" Harry said, upset. "It's our first week here and look at you, two detentions!"

"I know….and I'm sorry," Eleanor said, playing with her hands.

"Just wait until our parents know about this!" Harry said, and they made their way to the common room.

"Today is Thursday, Harry. Tomorrow is Friday," Ron said, trying to calm down his friend. "It's almost weekend."
