“I say he should be expelled! Imagine if he told someone other than Lily! He swore not to tell to both Remus and you professor!” James protested to the Hogwarts headmaster; Albus Dumbledore.

“Or you know kicked out of the country completely...”Added Sirius.

“I don’t think that shall be necessary Mr Black” Dumbledore chuckled “But Yes Mr Snape will have to be addressed accordingly.”

“I don’t think expulsion is necessary either professor, a firm talking to, possibly a detention yes but nothing too drastic” I butted in.

 I can’t believe I just said that! I know deep down Severus is a good guy, he needs help but that doesn’t mean I should be wrapping him in cotton wool and covering for him. I risked a glance at Remus; after all this was all about him. But he just sat in the chair next to me seeming unconcerned, lost in thought.

“You can’t be serious!?” James and Sirius rounded on me.

“She’s right you guys. Everyone deserves a second chance; if anything the poor bloke was probably trying to reform his friendship with Lily... though he didn’t go the right way about it.” Remus said quietly coming to my rescue.

“I can assure all of you Mr Snape will be dealt with, that’s a personal promise. But now it is time for us all to make our way down to the great hall for dinner, yes?” Dumbledore said, drawing our meeting to a close.


“Is it just me or does Snivellus seem nervous?” Black mumbled through a mouthful of chicken. I grimaced.

 “Would you please stop calling him that! And don’t talk with your mouth full!” I hissed.

“Can’t we just forget about him and eat in peace?” Remus pleaded. We all nodded.  “Thank you”

“What’s up wormtail? You’re awfully quiet” James commented, nudging Peter.

“Nothing, I’m just tired” He stuttered, James shrugged and went back to having dinner.

I could have sworn that out of the corner of my eye I saw Pettigrew exhale in relief and turn to look toward the slytherin table.


Severus’s punishment was to personally apologize to Remus; face to face and also be was banned from the next trip to Hogsmeade. Which both Remus and I thought was reasonable. James and Sirius of course didn’t agree but soon managed to get over themselves... well James did anyway.

“You’re coming to Hogsmeade with me!” He stated as we sat in front of the fire in the heads room.

 “Yes Potter. I am going to Hogsmeade with you and Sirius and Peter and Remus. As Alice is on a date with Frank and Remus said I could join you” I replied.

“This is going to be great! Padfoot and I will have to take you to Zonko’s joke shop and I’m sure you’ll want to go see...” He began excitedly but I cut him off.

“James... I have been to Hogsmeade before. I have seen the entire village. The trip isn’t until just before Christmas in December and it’s only November. It will be freezing out and no doubt we will probably go Christmas shopping and then stay cooped up in the three broomsticks.”

“Aw!!!!!!!!!!!” he whined.

“Well do you not want me to get you a present?”

“You’re going to get me a present?” He asked happily.

“Yes, seeing as we’re friends now... unless you don’t want me to....” I teased.

“No! I mean yes! I mean... I don’t know what I mean; yes I want you to get me a present. That means I get to get you one too!”

“You don’t have to...”

“Hush! I am so going to get you a present and you are going to love it!”

Oh Merlin what have I gotten myself into...
