"Snape is the new headmaster?" Harry asked surprised as he was sitting with the Weasley family as he was about to start his seventh year at Hogwarts.

"I was surprised myself that the bastard is going to be the new headmaster instead of McGonagall," Ron said unhappily.

Molly scolded at him, "that's not a nice thing to say about to your teachers Ron!" She snapped.

"What? He is though, isn't he?" Ron asked as he received disapproving looks from the others besides Fred and George of course.

"But nothing has changed at Hogwarts though. Everything seems the same," Hermione said.

"Everything is normal now that Voldemort is gone," Harry said with a slight smile on his face.

"All thanks to you dear," Molly said as she put a comforting hand on him before moving on.

"Do you still want to be an Auror Harry? You could change your career still," Arthur suggested.

Harry shook his head, "there are some Death Eaters that had gotten loose out of the war that's still out there. I want to help in finding them," he replied.

"Fred dear, could you open the window for Harry's owl? I think those are the letters from Hogwarts," Molly said as Fred went to open it.

Harry took the letters from his owl as he got about four envelopes containing his letter, Ron, Hermione and Ginny. "What does yours say, Harry?" Ginny asked after looking at her letter.

Harry showed it to them as they read it.

Dear Mr. Potter,

Your class schedule will contain the following:

Defense Against the Dark Arts

Double Potions





Get the appropriate books at Diagon Alley for seventh years along with school supplies. Potter, I must see you a day early before the opening feast. Be at my office at three. Do not be late. You will be escorted from the train going to the school by none other then Minerva. When the remaining Death Eaters are in jail, you will be on your own. But for now, you will be escorted. Throw this letter away once you know what to do. Do not keep it. –Severus Snape

"A day early? What for?" Ron cried surprised.

"Who knows? Maybe it's something from Dumbledore," Harry guessed.

"Wait a second. You don't need Astronomy for an Auror or Herbology," Hermione said.

"I like Astronomy so I'm taking it. As for Herbology, I'm considering in for a career in Healing after I'm done taking down the Death Eaters," Harry replied.

"I wonder whose the new teacher for double potions," Ginny said.

"It's probably Slughorn since he was the teacher for Defense Against the Dark Arts," Hermione said.

"I hope so," Harry said hopefully since he was the one who taught Snape potions and is one of the very best.

"Do you know what this is about Professor?" Harry asked as he gotten out off the train and was walking along side Minerva as the two were going up to the school.

"Severus is a private man Potter. He doesn't say anything to me unless it's concerning about a member of my house," Minerva replied.

"Do you know whose the new teacher for potions?" Harry asked.

Minerva shook her head, "even if I do know, I would not tell you. You will see at the opening feast tomorrow," she said as this made Harry frowned.

"Is there anyone here at the moment besides me, you and Snape?" He asks.

"Do not call him that without the proper title Potter," Minerva scolded.

"Sorry Professor," Harry grumbled.

Minerva shook her head, "Eileen," she said to the gargoyle that opened.

Harry looked at it surprised, so, Snape made the password after his mother, he thought.

"Go in Potter," Minerva urged him as Harry left his stuff by Minerva as Harry went inside nervously.

He knocked on the door and Harry saw that it opened as he looked and he saw that Snape had his wand out to open it for him. "You wanted to see me sir?" He asked nervously.

"You do not have to be so nervous Harry. We've been so much together within the war that had taken place upon us," Severus said.

Harry became calm after hearing that as he sat in front of Severus, "Professor McGonagall wouldn't tell me what this is about," he said.

"I didn't told anyone that I was seeing you a day early besides her. I want to tell you who's the new potion teacher in the school," Severus explained.

"Hermione thinks it's Professor Slughorn," Harry replied.

"Does she? Who do you think it may be, Harry?" Severus asked with a slight smile on his face.

"I don't really care. Just hoping it isn't another Death Eater," Harry teased as he looked at Severus with a smirk. Harry frowned at the look he was getting from Severus, "it's another Death Eater?" He asked surprised.

"No, not another Death Eater but a former one," Severus said.

Harry blinked, a former one? But the only one that… he didn't finished his thought as he knew who it was. "Lucicus! You're making him the new teacher here?" Harry asked angrily.

"This isn't open for a debate Harry! I just wanted to tell you so you won't come running to me the next day when you see who it is!" Severus said angrily.

"But why Lucius? Everyone hates him in the school! Everyone except the Slytherins!" Harry spat back.

"He is the next potion master there is next to me. I am sure you will teach more with him then me. You are dismiss Harry," Severus said.

"This wasted my time," Harry murmured as he stood up.

"Potter, I expect you won't do anything foolish while Lucius is here teaching," Severus said.

"Everyone will know his going to favor Malfoy. There won't be any changes in that," Harry said as he left and he closed the door.

"Give it time," a voice said suddenly.

Severus sighed, "his a stubborn kid Albus," he said.

The portrait of Albus chuckled, "I wonder, why did you not tell him how you felt about him?" He asked.

"It is forbidden," Severus said quietly.

"It isn't forbidden if the student is off age and nobody could stop you two. There's something more, isn't it?" Albus asked.

"How will he react when he finds out that I slept with his father more then once? He would never love me then," Severus said.

"Did you sleep with Lily?" Albus asked.

"What? No! I was tempted cause she was attractive and she was my friend, but I was even more attractive to James. Harry would never forgive me for making James cheat on Lily without her knowing it. Lily must be furious with me in her grave," Severus said sadly.

"Give it time Severus. Harry will learn to trust you in the manner of speaking," Albus said as Severus nodded and hope Harry would forgive him.
