My next story! Yah! I finished 'The eyes of a unwanted girl' not to long ago and had so much fun writing it, that I am thinking on a squeal, but this is not that! This is a new story! It is a Lilly/Severus Affair story so deal with it!

((A/N: Disclaimer: I don't own any Harry Potter Characters, but I do own any new character!))

Chapter 1: Say Hello To Severus Little One.

She was in a hurry. She had to execute her plan just right or the little girl in the crib would be dead by sunrise. She packed the baby's things and threw them all into a bag that was at her feet.

" Must hurry. Gotta get Katherine out of here." The woman said, tears running down here face.

A cry escaped from the crib behind her and when she turned around, a little boy standing up, holding on to the railings, staring at the woman. The little girl was sitting up, clinging to the boy's leg.

" Mommy, where you going?" He asked, gazing up her.

" Oh, Harry dear, I'm not going anywhere, but I have to take Kat somewhere safe for right now." Lilly said, cradling her son's cheek.

" Where Kat going? Am I coming?" Harry asked, gazing down at Kat.

" Not right now, baby, but soon. Soon, you two will be back together. Come on, Kat." Lilly kissed Harry's head and picked up Kat.

" Bye, Kat." Harry kissed her cheek and hugged her.

" I will be back soon, Harry. Go back to sleep." Lilly kissed him again and laid him down.

When he finally closed his eyes, Lilly grabbed the bag and held Katherine tight.

" By' Har'" Kat called out just as Lilly apparated away.


She reappeared in muggle London, near a door that lead to a rather strange pub. But right now, Katherine was crying.

" Hush, baby, its ok. Your alright." Lilly whispered to the girl.

" How about I sing you a song? Will you calm down? Alright, lets sing."

"Please, please forgive me,
but I won't be home again.
Maybe someday you'll look up,
And, barely conscious, you'll say to no one:
"Isn't something missing?"

You won't cry for my absence, I know -
You forgot me long ago.
Am I that unimportant...?
Am I so insignificant...?
Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?"

Lilly was slowly walking towards the pub and stopped and moved into the shadows when she saw three figures come out of the door.

It was James Potter, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin.

'Crap.' Lilly thought.

James and Sirius didn't notice her, but Remus looked her way. She was quickly shacking her head and mouthed the words ' Please no' to him. He nodded and turned back to the others.

" Hey, Moony, you coming?" asked a drunk James.

" Yah, someone has to keep you two in line." Remus walked away.

As soon as they were out of sight, Lilly let out the breath she had been holding. As if sensing it was all right, Kat whimpered.

Lilly looked down and finished the song as she walked to the pub.

"Even though I'm the sacrifice,
you won't try for me, not now.
Though I'd die to know you love me,
I'm all alone.
Isn't someone missing me?

Please, please forgive me,
but I won't be home again.
I know what you do to yourself,
I breathe deep and cry out,
"Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?"

Even though I'm the sacrifice,
you won't try for me, not now.
Though I'd die to know you love me,
I'm all alone.
Isn't someone missing me?

And if I bleed, I'll bleed,
knowing you don't care.
And if I sleep just to dream of you
I'll wake without you there,
Isn't something missing?
Isn't something...

Even though I'm the sacrifice,
You won't try for me, not now.
Though I'd die to know you love me,
I'm all alone.
Isn't someone missing me?"

Lilly was glad that there was noone left in the pub but the owner Tom.

" Sorry miss, but were closed." Tom said when she walked through the door.

" Tom, it's Lilly. I need to the fireplace." Lilly said, pulling back her hood.

" Why didn't you just apparate?" Tom asked.

" I can only so much with Katherine in my arms." Lilly answered, looking down at Kat.

" So, I finally get to meet the little angel and it's on the night when you're not staying?" Tom said, giving a toothy down to Kat, who grinned back.

" I am afraid so, Tom." Lilly responded.

" Go ahead and use the fireplace. I'll see you later, Lill." Tom said, locking the front and back door and went to his room.

When Lilly heard the lock click, she dashed for the fireplace, bringing out a small pouch filled with a silvery powder.

She stepped in and held a hand over Kat's nose before throwing the powder down and yelling:

" Snape Manor."

Both disappeared in a burst of green flames.


Lilly came out of the fireplace in Severus Snape's study at a stumble and was holding on tightly to a side of his desk so she wouldn't fall on Katherine.

She didn't see the tall figure in the doorway.

" Lilly?" The figure asked, moving forward.

" Oh, Sev, help please. I don't want to drop her." Lilly said, her vision blurry.

Severus moved quickly and had Katherine in his arms while Lilly sat on the couch.

Severus was examining Katherine to make sure she was ok when he heard Lilly chuckle.

" What?" He asked, looking up at her.

" That is just how I thought you would look like in our sixth year; holding our child, holding her carefully, lovingly." She answered, standing up.

" Well, that was before the all hell broke loose." Severus said, moving to hand Katherine back.

Lilly shook her head. " You hold her for a while."

Severus pulled Kat back into his arms and gazed down at her.

" Why Lilly?" Severus asked, while playing with one of Katherine's fingers.

" Why what?"

" Why do you want me hold her? Why are you here? I mean, I love that you're here, but why?" He responded, sitting down next her.

" Ok, to answer the last question, I have to answer the first. She's yo-ours, Sev. And because James found out, I fled. He wanted kill her and I don't want that man near her. I couldn't bring Harry because James is his father, but not her's." Lilly said, her eyes on the mantel.

Severus was quite for a few minutes, but his eyes never left Katherine.

Finally, he spoke up.

" Lilly?"

" Yah?" She responded, looking at him.

" What's her name?"

Lilly grinned and fingered Kat's dark hair.

" Katherine Ann…. Snape. Harry and I call her Kat for short." She answered, pride glowing from her eyes.

" How did you manage to name her Snape with James killing her?" Severus asked her.

" I filed her real birth certificate before James filed one with her last name as 'Potter'."

" Ahh, I see, so the one he filed is void." Severus said, brushing the soft hair on Kat's head. She barely moved in her sleep, but she did move her head toward him when he touched her.

" Basically. Listen, I am going to go and get Harry and come back here. I plan on divorcing him. I don't want him any where near my children any longer." Lilly said, standing up, pulling the pouch out of her pocket.

" Lilly, be careful." Severus said, standing up.

" I will Sev, but if the worst should happen, protect her, love her, spoil her, train her and just be the father James would never be." Lilly said, tears rolling off her cheek.

" I will Lilly, I promise."

" One more thing. Teach her everything you know, limited to the dark arts. Make her better then Dumbledore would ever expect." Lilly said, tears gone as she picked Kat up.

" Well, didn't we plan that originally for our children?" Severus asked, moving closer.

Lilly turned to face him. Tears were racing down her face again.

" Right. I better go if I wanna beat James home." Lilly kissed Kat's head. "Bye baby. Mommy loves you and you better be good for your dad. I'll kick your butt if your not."

She handed Katherine back to him, headed back for the fireplace and turned back around.

" Sev, I always loved you, I never stopped. Protect her. Leaky Cauldron!"

She was gone and Severus stood there holding a sleepy child.

" I love you too, Lilly." He whispered, a tear rolling down his cheek.

He gained control of his emotions again and held Kat up above him and had her giggling.

" Some Halloween, huh Kat? Come on, you can sleep with me tonight until I can fix up a room for you."

He walked up the stairs with Kat already sleeping against his chest.


(11 years later)

(( ok it's going to sound corny, but ever since Severus has had Katherine, the house hasnever been thisbright in its attitude. It's a very loving home.))

A very disgruntled preteen stood at her mirror while dressing.

" Just like dad. I ask him to wake me up early and what does he do? Lets me sleep until eleven. But, what am I fretting for? He is finally home. I can't wait until I go to Hogwarts. At least then I wont have to wait ten months for me to have him all to myself. I don't like sharing my dad." Kat said, brushing her hair. Her hair was now black with red highlights everywhere you looked and was so long, it was down in the middle of her back. She was grateful if wasn't frizzy or super curly. It also seemed her eyes went through several changes throughout her life so far and for the last two years has been set on a very odd mix of Ebony and Emerald. Her dad adored her eyes and told her often.

After magically gathering her hair in a high ponytail, she abandoned the mirror for her closet and was singing along with her stereo that Severus had bought her. It was a muggle one and he charmed it for her birthday two months ago.

"An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought...it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought...it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think
A little too ironic...and yeah I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought...it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out"


Satisfied with her outfit, Kat bounded out of the room and into her dad's study. She stood in the doorway with her hands on her hips, glaring at the man who had his head down to her, writing on a piece of parchment. At last, Severus seemed to acknowledge she was there and smirked at her glare.

" Morning love." Severus said, standing up.

She didn't hear the footsteps on the stairs behind her, nor did she see a certain blonde creep up behind her. Nor did she notice the small movement on the ground by Severus's couch.

Her glare lessoned but she still held it.

" What is with the glare, Katherine?"

" I wanted up at seven today. I was gonna spend the whole day with you." Kat said, the glare dropping.

" I'm sorry Kat, I was just really tired." Severus said, walking closer to her,

" I am just glad your home!" Kat said, wrapping her arms around him and he hugged back.

" Glad to be home as well. Even though I just saw you two months ago, I am sure to you it was forever." Severus grinned.

" It was too long. But you got home early yesterday, so what could have made you so sleepy?" Kat asked, stepping away, giving her father a questioning gaze.

" Draco came late last night and is still here." He answered while moving backwards.

" Draco's here and you just now decided to tell me? Where is he?" Kat asked, excitement entering her eyes.

" Right behind you." Came his voice.

She spun around and smirked.

" Hey sleeping beauty." Draco said, smirking back.

Kat grinned, jumped at him and he caught her in a bone-crushing hug.

" Missed you, Dray." Kat whispered.

" Missed you too Kitty Kat." Draco whispered back.

" I'm sorry Kitty, that I wasn't here for your birthday, but you know, I had family stuff." Draco said after they pulled apart.

" You know I understand cousin. Did you at least bring a belated present?" Kat joked, smiling at him.

" Why would I forget your present. Come and sit down and I will give it to you." Draco said, grabbing her hand and dragging her into the study.

After he had her sitting, Draco had Kat close her eyes and after a minute let her open them. Sitting in his lap a little black and tan puppy.

" Dray, is this what I think it is?" Kat asked, looking up.

" It is your very eight month old Shiba Inu. He's house trained and ready fro you." Draco said, handing the puppy over to her.

" Oh, Dray I love him. It was worth the wait." Kat leaned over and kissed his cheek and hugged him.

" Glad you like him Kat. There is something special about him. He will always know when you are in trouble and when needed, can use very old magick that is known in his breed when they are bred in the magical world. You will have your own personal fuzzy bodyguard."

Kat giggled and stood up while whispering to the pup. " Fuzzy bodyguard."

" Dad?"

" Yes, Kat?" Severus answered.

" Can I forgo our day together to play with the puppy?" Kat asked, halfway to the door.

" Alright, but…"

Kat bolted out of the door.

" Kat!" Severus called, but no answer.

" Katherine!"

Still no answer came.

" Katherine Ann Snape!" Severus growled.

Kat's peeked around the corner.

" Yah dad?"

" Be back by nightfall." He said, sitting down again.

" Okay dad, love you, love you Dray." Kat said, bolting out again.


((OUTSIDE))

Kat had let the pup down and at once it was exploring but never to far from Kat.

" What should I call you, pup?" Kat asked when he passed by her feet again. He stopped and turned towards her and padded up to her side before crawling into her lap.

" I know, I'll call you…..Hades! Try not to live up to your name to much pup. Dad will have a fit if he finds the house destroyed and I will be paying for it, not you." Kat said, scratching the pup.

"How about a song, Hades?" Kat asked as they both got up to move around. Hades began to explore as Kat began to sing, picking random herbs as she went.

"Once upon a time there was a girl
You really wouldn't call her typical
Had her own definition of cool
She lived in her own world
She had her own style her own rules
She played along like it was usual
Nobody really even knew her name
Her life was one big game

She got her head up in the clouds
Sharada, Sharada
Don't know when she'll come down
Sharada, Sharada
She can't get to bed
Sharada, Sharada
She's got this song stuck in her head
(her head, her head, song stuck in her head)

Dreaming all day
That's all she did
Ever since she was a little kid
All the teacher's thought that she was slow
She was just dreaming about her show
And when they told her she's delirious
She didn't care
She's just oblivious
She likes to make everyone curious
One day she's gonna be famous

She got her head up in the clouds
Sharada, Sharada
Don't know when she'll come down
Sharada, Sharada
She can't get to bed
Sharada, Sharada
She's got this song stuck in her head
(her head, her head, she's got this song stuck in her head)

She got her head up in the clouds
Sharada, Sharada
Don't know when she'll come down
Sharada, Sharada
She can't get to bed
Sharada, Sharada
She's got this song stuck in her head
(her head, her head)

She got her head up in the clouds
Sharada, Sharada
Don't know when she'll come down
Sharada, Sharada
She can't get to bed
Sharada, Sharada
She's got this song stuck in her head
(her head, her head, her head, her head, her head)"

((A/N: Ok I know it seems that I use songs to much, but I have music in my soul and so my characters must have it in them! So what do you think of my new story?))
