Love, secrets, and potions

Chapter 34


Chapter 4.

"Who is it?" Snape asked, opening the door, and revealing Eleanor. Eleanor took a deep breath and spoke.

"I'm sorry for the way I acted when I found out about you being my dad. I'm sorry for being so selfish. You make my mum happy and I love to see her that way. We have been apart for years and I don't wanna waste more time, but don't expect me to call you dad from one day to another…I still need time," Eleanor said and Snape nodded.

"I don't know how to be a dad, but I'll do my best to find it out, Eleanor," They shared a gaze and Eleanor walked to the door.

"Good night, professor," she said, opening the door. Snape followed her.

"Out of the classroom you can call me Severus," Eleanor nodded and left.

"I told you that she would come to you," Lily's voice came from behind him. Severus turned and hugged her.

"I'm glad she did…and like she said, I don't expect her to call me dad from one day to another. I'll give her time and I'll win her respect," Lily smiled and kissed his lips.

"I love you," she said, kissing him again and again. They stared at each other's eyes and Lily held his hand, taking him to his bedroom.

"Potter," Delphini said, when they were outside the DADA'S classroom. The class started 5 minutes ago, and they knew that Professor Malfoy hated when her students were late. Harry stared at her and rolled his eyes, pushing her from the door so he could get in, but Delphini didn't move.

"Move," Harry said, losing his temper. He hated her, she was the responsible for Sirius' death.

"No," Delphini answered, raising an eyebrow and staring deep in his eyes. "I've changed, Potter, and I don't care what you think about me, I don't give a shit about you calling me a murderer," Harry stepped back and Delphini walked toward him. "It's my turn to say what I think, and wether you like it or not, you're going to listen to it! I love my life and I'm gonna live it as I want to, and if I wanna be a Death Eater I will," Harry opened his eyes when she mentioned 'Death Eater' she couldn't be serious. "If I wanna be a normal girl with a dark past, I will, because all of us have a dark past, even you. I know that I did wrong at wanting revenge and I apologized already. If you take them good for you. If you don't, then screw you." At this point, Delphini and Harry's faces were inches apart. Harry could feel her breath on his face. They held their gazes for some seconds and then Delphini walked away, leaving an upset Harry behind.

The DADA class was over and the students left. Hermione was acting nervous, like if she were afraid of something or someone. Eleanor, Ron and Hermione made their way to Harry and then to the grounds. Everything was perfect.

"Eleanor," Neville's voice came from a group of Revenclaw's students. He was holding a notebook. "You left this in the classroom," Neville held an old diary that Eleanor knew pretty well. Eleanor stared at Harry and Hermione and took it from his hands.

"Thank you, Neville," Neville gave her a shy smile and left. Eleanor opened the diary and found blank pages. "I thought I had lost it,"

"So did we," Ron replied, taking the diary from her hands. Harry and Hermione shared a look before looking back at the diary.

"I never thought that you'd have a 'Dear Dairy', Weasley," Draco Malfoy said, staring at Ron. Eleanor took the diary from his hands.

"Shut up, Malfoy," Harry said, upset. Hermione was standing next to him, giving him a death look.

"Or what?" Draco asked him, giving a step closer to Harry. Hermione held Harry's wrist, stopping him from moving. Draco's eyes fell to her hand and something in his eyes changed. "Oh, I see…You've got yourself a girlfriend to defend you," Malfoy said, and Eleanor couldn't help but remember Lily's and Snape's story. She knew that her brother wouldn't call Hermione like that. He couldn't.

"At least I have someone who cares for me and who would defend me…Sadly you cannot say the same, can you, Malfoy?" Harry said, and Hermione didn't know how Harry got free from her hand, but she fell to the ground, and saw how Harry and Draco were pointing at each other with their wands.

"Stop!" Eleanor screamed, while Ron was helping Hermione to stand up. Harry had pushed her so he could take his wand out to defend himself from Malfoy. "I SAID STOP!" Eleanor screamed again and put herself between her brother and Draco. Hermione stood up and walked to Draco, pushing him. Draco fell to the ground with Hermione over him.

"Stay. Away. From. Us." She said, sharply. Draco realized what was happening and couldn't help but blush. Hermione gave him one last glance and stood up from him, so did Draco. "Let's go," she said, avoiding Draco's eyes. The rest of them followed her and sat down in a bench.

"Ouch!" Eleanor yelled, staring at her hand. "It's burning!" Eleanor stood up, and the diary fell from her lap to the floor, opening itself. All of them stared at the brightly diary.

"Look! It's writing something by itself!" Ron shouted, shocked.

"There's no revenge if there's not sacrifice by both sides.

Phoenix and Eaters,

We all have a weakness and his was her…Until now,"

"What does it mean?" Harry asked them, staring at Hermione and something weird happened, the girl shrugged.

"I have no idea."

Get ready, my dears...War is coming!
