Eleanor couldn't think clearly. Severus Snape was her father. Her real father. She hated him, and the woman who called herself a mother for all those years. She's been living a lie, and she knew it now. Eleanor was so absorbed in her own thoughts that she didn't notice the blonde boy in front of her.
"Watch out, you idiot!" she yelled, not looking at the person in front of her. "Why aren't you moving?! I need to leave!" She raised her eyes from the floor and saw a shocked Draco staring at her.
"Eleanor…" he said carefully, trying to wipe her tears away. Eleanor stepped back.
"You haven't seen me, Draco, and I haven't seen you," she said and left. Draco followed her with his eyes, and then shook his head.
"Eleanor!" He heard shouts coming from the hallway. "Eleanor!" It was Harry who was calling her. "Have you seen my sister?" Draco stared him, confused.
"What happened to her?" he asked him, with a tone of seriousness in his voice.
"Are family issues. Have you seen her or not!?" Harry raised his voice, and Draco laughed. "Do you think it's funny?" Harry stepped closer and grabbed Draco's collar.
"Get off me!" Draco yelled, and stepped back, pushing him away. "Screw you, Potter," he said and left.
"Hermione," Eleanor thought, while running to the girls' room. She needed to change it all. She didn't want to be the result of an affair of 'her mother'. She didn't want to be born in a lie… She would change it. "Hermione!" she yelled when got into the girls' room. Hermione was reading a book.
"Are you okay?!" she asked her, worried. Eleanor nodded and got closer to her.
"I need your help. No questions," Eleanor stared at her and then grabbed her collar and took the time turner off. Hermione opened her eyes and stepped back, trying to get her time turner back.
"Eleanor," she said, slowly.
"I need your help, Hermione…Please!" Hermione stared at her, scared. "I just need to change something,"
"You know that if something changes in the past, it will change in the future too," Hermione said, warning her.
"That's the point," Eleanor said, and Hermione couldn't believe what she was hearing.
"Eleanor!" shouts from the common room were heard. 'Harry' Eleanor thought, and put the necklace between her and Hermione.
"Why is Harry calling you? Why are you so hurried?" Hermione asked, nervous. "Eleanor!" the girl stared at her and the time turner. Everything got blurry, they were moving… but weren't alone. Before everything could disappear, the door opened, and revealed an old man. It was Albus Dumbledore.
It was a dark night in a small square. There was a young boy and a redhead girl, they were holding hands. Eleanor looked at Hermione, and then at Dumbledore. They kept quiet.
"You're lying," the boy whispered, and the girl turned to him and shook her head.
"I am not…Severus," Snape let go of Lily's hand and stepped back. "I care for you, I truly do and you know that, but…"
"Nice way to show how much you care for me. You're running away with that idiot, Lily! You're doing what the arrogant jerk wants you to do!"
"I…I have to do this, Sev. For us, for our future." Severus stared at her, and Eleanor couldn't believe what she saw. Severus Snape had tears in his eyes.
"Lily," he whispered.
"Since I married James, we've seen each other a couple times, but we can't anymore Sev. I need to think about my family. We can't do this anymore. The rumors say that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named wants you … and if someone see us together, you'll be in danger, and I care for you too much to let that happen!"
"Leaving your friend when he needs you the most shows me how much you've changed, Lily," Snape said, coldly.
"Forgive me, Sev, please," she tried to hold his hand, but he ignored her and looked away.
"Have a nice life, Mrs. Potter," Severus Snape said, and started to walk away.
"Sev…Don't leave like this! Please!" Lily followed him, but he walked faster. "Don't you see I'm in pain too?" Snape gave a cold laugh.
"You should go back to your husband and his friends Lily…or they could find out that you're with Snivellus," Snape continued walking.
"Sev…I love you!" Lily yelled, and Severus stopped for a moment before shaking his head.
"Lies suit you," he whispered back and kept walking, not turning back to her. Lily sobbed while watching him leave. Eleanor moved so she could get a better look of her mom, and then she froze. Lily was covering her face with one of her hands, while the other was across her growing stomach.
Thank you for coming back to the fanfic! I'm so glad that you're still here and I hope you guys enjoy Level two as much as I do! A lot of things are going to happen, be ready!
Let me know what you think about this new level in the reviews. See you! 😊
I read your question, Outofthisworldgal, and that's because Eleanor is more clever in some subjects than her classmates, and she can go to classes with the 'advanced' ones. I hope I answered your question!
