i own nothing

The night I woke up here I had just escaped. I had been captured and tortured. I was bleeding heavy and I was ready to let go. I was ready to stop fighting."

The room was silent. Dean walked quietly out of the room and a moment later they heard his car speed off.

A loud popping noise sounded in the small motel room and both men stopped at Hermione's scream.

"Miss Granger."

"No. No. No. You're dead. Oh god, they've found me." Hermione was rocking back and forth on the bed and both Sam and Bobby rushed to stand in front of her.

"I don't know who the hell you are, but I suggest that you leave. You're scarin my niece."

"Miss Granger, I mean you no harm. I have been sent with a message." The surly man growled.

"If you're going to kill me professor just do it. Do not mock me." Hermione's eyes shone with tears but she head her chin high.

"I open at the close."

Hermione's eyes widened and she stood from the bed.

"What did you just say?"

"A message from a friend of yours. I assume there is a meaning of which I am unaware."

"Har…Harry? No. That's not possible. He's dead. Harry's dead."

"No, Miss Granger. I assure you he is not. He has been hidden, along with several other order members, by another spy within Voldemort's ranks."

"But. That's not.. No. Who else would have risked their life for the light? I don't believe you Snape. You're lying."

Huffing Severus took a few steps closer. "If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself." Lowering his wand Hermione watched as the shield behind his eyes dropped.
