The day of the court date arrived and Harry was walking to the living room to get ready to say good bye and good luck to Dad and Draco. Yes Dad. He started calling both Buffy and Sev mom and dad about a couple weeks ago. It all started when he woke up from a nightmare about his parents murder. They stayed with him and talked with him about everything and made sure he was ok. All summer long they treated him as part of the family, as their actual son. They truly did care and love him deeply. Ofcourse he spoke with his actual parents about calling them that first before anything and they said it would be fine with them if he considers Buffy and Sev his parents since they could be there for him while they couldn’t. All they could do was talk to him via portrait.
And so harry was thinking all this as he walked into the living room where Buffy was standing getting everything prepared. She had gotten a big 76in flat screen LED tv so they could watch the whole trial on seeing as how powerful Buffy was to actual do it.
“Good morning Harry!” said Buffy cheerily. “How are you feeling today?”
“Im ok mom just wanting this trial to go by quickly so Dad and Draco can come home and we can all relax.” Replied Harry. “I know son, me too. I bet your excited to be going back to school the day after tomorrow huh?” asked Buffy.
“Yea I am pretty excited. Cant wait to see what new adventure this year brings.” sighed Harry. “Well if it helps any I have a surprise to tell all of you once everyone comes down.” smiled Buffy.
Harry looked at Buffy confused but just nodded his head and waited for everyone else. Everyone came downstairs about 10 min later. Sev and Draco were all dressed up and ready to go to the trial. “Well you two good luck today don’t worry to much about everything. It will all work out for the best.” Said Buffy. Draco nodded and Sev smiled at his lovely wife. “Also I have a few things to say before you leave which hopefully will cheer you up before you go.”
Everyone looked confused but waited to hear what she would say. “Ok well I just received a letter from Dumbledore and he has asked me to do a extra curricular class at Hogwarts so that way I am not separated from you all throughout the year. He said it will be fun to have something where I can teach the students new things or help them with any problems about school or not.” Said Buffy excitedly. “ Also we can finally after all these years especially since your mother will be safe Draco tell everyone about Sev and my marriage and our children who shall join you all this year!”
All the children were really ecstatic about the news and all gave her a hug and talked about how great it would be to have her there. Everyone that is but Sev. He looked pale and just a tiny bit angry. *What is she thinking? Thought Sev. We cant put our children in danger by telling the world about us and also doesn’t she think about her own life? She will be in danger from the other Death Eaters out there!*
Buffy looked at Sev and saw that he was deep in thought. “Babe? You ok? Aren’t you excited?”
Sev looked at Buffy and said “Sorry I was just thinking we are going to be late for the trial if we don’t hurry. C’mon Draco lets go.” And he grabbed Draco’s arm and apparated to the court. Everyone left behind looked at Buffy with a confused and concerned expression. “Mom.” Said Cyra, “Is daddy ok? He seemed not really excited about this.” “Well maybe he is just to stressed out about testifying in court. I know I would be.” Replied Dillon even though he too was concerned for his mom. He hoped his dad was not thinking anything bad. “Well kids I won’t know anything until he comes back so let’s not worry to much about anything and just send our love and support to Draco and Sev for today.” said Buffy. Everyone nodded and sat around the screen to watch.
(I am not very good at doing scenes with many visuals so if you have been to a court room just imagine one but bigger where all the Wizengamonts are there on one side, the people watching on the other, and the accused and witnesses in the middle.)
The prosecutor had read everything the Malfoys were being accused of. Everyone in the court room booed at them while a few didn’t have anything to say but watch. The first to be called to testify was Severus. He talked about being a spy for Dumbledore and everything he did was just an illusion spell someone had taught him to do very well. The Defense had things to say about how it was a lie until Dumbledore stood and gave his testimony on behalf of Severus and gave proof and Severus’s involvement of being a spy. So the defense had that taken away. Especially when Severus brought up how Lucius was the true evil one while his wife Narcissa was just a battered wife only doing things to make sure she can protect her son from the evil of his father. Dumbledore even gave proof for that also which tore up anything the defense had.
It was then Draco’s turn to speak about his parents. At first the defense thought they could get him to speak well of not only his mother but father as well. It didn’t go as they planned.
“So Draco, what have you to say about your parents involvement about this so called accusations being thrown at them?” asked the defense lawyer.
Draco stared at the man without flinching and stated “that man is not my father, he is a cruel, twisted man and I hoped and prayed my mother would leave him but she was too terrified at what he could do. I hope he stays in Azkaban where he belongs so he can not hurt any other innocent again!” an uproar was caused in the courtroom. Most people screamed in agreement while a few looked on in hate towards the young man vowing to get him for his betrayal against the Dark Lord.
The trial passed by in a blur for Draco and Severus and at the end the Wizengamont decided to let his mother go, but his father had to spend the rest of his life in Azkaban. Everyone cheered, and reporters were flashing their cameras at Lucius being taken away screaming “I’ll get you all!” and letting Narcissa go free. Dumbledore and Narcissa walked to where Draco and Sev were standing to speak a moment before he had to take her to hiding. Narcissa gave her son a huge hug while she cried a little on his shoulder. “Im so sorry for everything my son but I am glad your with Sev who will protect you.” Draco hugged his mother and said “its ok mother everything will be ok. This war will be over before you know it and we can be together again.”
She smiled and hugged him one more time before hugging Sev and asking him to make sure Draco stayed safe before leaving with Dumbledore to her new home. Sev placed his arm around Draco who looked pale and tired. The trial had taken all day, it was now nighttime. It was time for dinner. So with one last look around Sev apparated the two of them home.
“ok everyone they will be coming home any minute lets make sure to give them both some time and space atleast for a little bit since they have had a long day ok.” said Buffy to all her kids. “Yes mom.” They replied. They heard a distinct pop which told them Draco and Sev were home. They all ran to give them a hug and take them to the dinner table to eat. “Draco dear if you want some time alone it will ok. We all understand it was a very hard day for you and you may wish to relax seeing as how tomorrow is your last day of summer before school.” said Buffy. Draco looked at her and smiled a small smile. “Its ok Buffy I am a little tired but being surrounded by all of you makes it all better.” he said.
Sev was talking to everyone during dinner but they could all see he had something on his mind. Buffy was planning on confronting him tomorrow about it seeing as it was a long day today. Everyone went to relax in their own ways before going to bed. The next day after lunch Buffy went to speak to her husband. She found him in the back by the waterfall. “Babe?” Sev looked up at the sound of his wife calling him. “Yes?”he asked.
“Well babe I was wondering what has got you thinking so much? You have been a little withdrawn since yesterday after I announced I was going to teach at the school. Don’t you want to spend time together?” she asked. “of course I do sweetheart its just I don’t want people to know about our marriage or that our kids our well a Snape.” Buffy sat there stunned. She couldn’t think for a moment. Then all hell broke loose.
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT OUR MARRIAGE OR THAT OUR KIDS OUR YOURS!!!” yelled Buffy. “LOOK ITS JUST I DON’T WANT THOSE DEATH EATERS GETTING TO OUR CHILDREN OR TO YOU FOR THAT MATTER!” yelled Sev right back.
“OH REALLY?!? AND DID YOU HINK MAYBE I COULD TAKE CARE OF MYSELF? I MEAN YES TOM GOT ME ONCE BEFORE BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN’T THINK HE WOULD ACTUALLY TRY TO BREAK THE FAIRY LAWS BUT STILL!!! HOW COULD YOU DENY YOUR CHILDREN THAT WAY!!” “IM NOT DENYING THEM YOU SILLY GIRL I JUST DON’T WANT THEM HURT!”
“WELL MAYBE IF YOU PAID MORE ATTENTION YOU WOULD REALIZE THEY COULD TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES AND ARE PERFECTLY SAFE AT HOGWARTS WITH BOTH OF US THERE!!! SO WHATS THE REAL REASON HUH?!?!? YOU DON’T WANT ME THERE CAUSE YOUR SEEING ANOTHER WOMAN IS THAT IT?? COULDN’T HANDLE A WIFE LOOKING LIKE SHE IS 21 ALL THE TIME??”
Sev just looked at Buffy like she was insane. “WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? THERE IS NO OTHER WOMAN. IM JUST SAYING IT WOULD BE BETTER IF PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW UNTIL IT WAS SAFER!”
“WELL HOW ABOUT PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TO KNOW SINCE THERE IS NOTHING TO TELL!!” Sev did not like where this was going. “What are you saying?” he asked quietly. “YOU KNOW WHAT IM SAYING YOU STUPID ASS JERK! SINCE YOU DON’T WANT TO HAVE THE BALLS TO BE A MAN IM THROUGH WITH YOU!” and she stormed off disappearing in a cloud of smoke. *Oh no what did I do?? Thought Severus. I’ve really messed up now.*
The children who were inside heard everything and couldn’t believe what just happened. Buffy just left Severus. What is going to happen now?
A few minutes later while Severus was still outside thinking about what had happened Buffy appeared before the children. “ Well I know you all heard what just happened and im sorry about it all but your father needs to realize a few things before anything can be fixed.”
“It’s ok mom we get it.” Said Dillon. “we don’t agree with what he did and wish we could’ve gone with you.” Said Mia. “no its better if you stay here especially seeing as how school is tomorrow. The only reason im here is to apologize to you all about everything and to say none of it is your fault this is something between me and your father.” Everyone nodded. “Also I found out something that ive been wanting to say for as a surprise to you all but seeing as how your father just acted im not going to tell him and neither are you am I understood?” everyone nodded again wanting to know what else she had to tell them. “Well everyone I found out that im pregnant!!” she squealed in delight. All the kids jumped up and down and hugged her all excited to be big brothers and sisters….
