It's happening again. My old nightmare. I cannot escape it. Every once in a while it comes back but this time it's even different and even scarier than ever.
I'm camping once again with my parents along the cliffs. I always get too close to the edge of the cliff as always and my father tries to get me from falling but he trips on his way and ends up falling over himself. My mother, who's so saddened by it jumps after him.
Then everything changes.
I'm sat on a stool looking at the corpses of my parents and they're covered in moss and bugs and mould. The bugs start crawling out the coffins and start attacking me. I run and run and scream and scream.
I run down a corridor with many doors on my left and right till finally there's one in front of me.
In there is Harry and Ron. Both of them are making love and do not want to be disturbed. I keep running through the doors in front to rooms unknown.
In the next room is Cormac McLaggen. He runs up to me and tries to kiss me again. In the next are the three Malfoys and Bellatrix, all screaming deadly curses at me.
The bugs are still chasing me. I try to fire spells at them but they jump and break my wand.
I scream more and run.
Then there is always the final room. He's there. He's there again. Severus Snape. He's there again, kissing some other woman. He's there again making love to another woman. He's there again proposing to another woman. Then as always he turns his head towards me and gives me the biggest smirk.
That's the bit that wakes me up every time. Knowing the fact that he would do that to someone and not me. When I love him.
I always wake up screaming. I'm screaming now. Even though I'm 26 years of age. Even though I'm happily married. Even though I have two beautiful children with the man lying next to me.
"Shush, Hermione. My angel, shush, the children will awaken." Severus hushed me. "Was it the same dream again?"
I don't say anything. I nod and he pulls me close. He kisses my nose, my cheeks, my forehead and then a passionate kiss on my lips and I feel safe again.
I know the dream is not real. I'm actually on good terms with Narcissa and Draco Malfoy. Lucius hasn't really warmed to me but it's getting due to my marriage with Severus. Bellatrix is long gone. Thank goodness.
Also the fact that Ron is happily married to Lavender, Harry is happily married to Ginny and Cormac is in a happy relationship with Charlie Weasley makes it even more false.
I sigh and snuggle back up into my husband's chest and breath in his scent and drift off back to sleep and try to dream about my life with my husband, children and family.
Even if I have this nightmare forever, I always know I'll wake up to my amazing husband, who changed my life with just one kiss.
