"You're my uncle?" She asked.
He smiled at her. "Yes. I'm Severus' brother.Therefore your uncle," He beamed at her and took a step foreward. Before Hermione even knew what he was doing he pulled her to him and enveloped her in a bear hug. "I'm so happy to meet you," He said as he crushed you.
"Uh nice to meet yyou?" Hermione stammered as he squeezed even harder. "Um," She said trying to get away from him, "I can't breathe."
"Oh," He said letting go. "Sorry, it's just that, for so long I thought I'd never meet Severus' daughter." He laughed rubbing the back of his head.
Hermione's eyes bugged out. "Hang on, you knew he had a daughter?" SHe asked incredulously.
"Yes, of couse." He said on a laugh. "He told the entire family." Hermione's eyes got even bigger.
"Entire family?!" She practically screamed. The guy nodded. "Uh hu. There is me, Mom, Serena, she's my sister, Aunt Alex, Uncle Douglas, cousins James and Jason, they're twins. Um there is also Grandma and Grandpa, and ..." Hermione stared at him as he numbered off many more paople.
'Who knew Sna- Dad had such a big family.' She thought. 'Oh I guess they're my family too' "Um, " She stammered, cutting the guy off, "What's your name?"
"Oh," He said, surprised by the question. "I thought I already told you. I guess not. Well my name is Rupert Snape. Not very catchy is it?" He laughed.
"Now I guess I should tell you about me.Really Severus is my half brother, but we were so close we were like full brothers. Anyway my parents are Alex and Karen Snape. My mom died giving birth to me. On my first birthday my dad got me a knew mom." He smiled, "It's a strange gift, but he thought I would need a mother and I did. I don't really miss my real mother because I never knew her. About two years after Dad married Pam, Severus was born. Then a year later Serena was born. So me and Severus are around three years apart in age, Severus and Serena are one year apart, and me and Serena are four years apart.. Dad died when I was nineteen, Severus was seventeen, and Serena was sixteen. I've been the backbone and support of the family ever since. When Dad died Severus was devistated. He was at a point in life when a boy needs a father. And Serena was so young. Sixteen is an age where a girl needs her fathers support and love because she starts dating. And mom. She wanted to die. She loved him so much. If we hadn't of gotton her out of her depression before she got to deep into I don't know what would have happened." Rupert sighed.
"About two years later severus left and destroyed all ties to us. We occasionaly got letters and such on holidays or birthdays. And for about five to six years that was about it. Then he appeared at the door one day. HE was raving about how he'll never live again because the love of his life left, and she just sent him a letter that she had been pregnant when she left. There was a picture with the letter too, and Severus wouldn't let go of it. Soon he got better, or so we thought. He drew into himself and left agian. We then got a letter from him a few years later, telling us about his job at hogwarts. I had been married by then with my three children, Zane, Amanda, and Ella. Beta, my wife just died two years ago. So now I take care of my kids and the rest of the family, but I lost one member, a beloved brother, but I gained a beloved neice." Rupert smiled and tried to hug Herimone agian, but she stepped away, shaking her head.
"No, I'm sorry, but I just can't handle this, " She said looking down. Rupert reached a hand out. "Hermione, please. If you could just try-"
Hermione backed even farther away and screamed, "NO! Everything is happening way to damn fast!" Then she turned, grabbed her stuff, and ran towards the train.
Rupert stared after her thinking, 'What did I say?'
Then he heard a voice come up from the ground at him, "That was bloody brilliant mate."
