Lily's Lie, Severus' Secret, and Harry's Surprise
December 1st, 1979
I watched as she sat up in bed. She kept the blanket pressed against her body. The moonlight flitted through the window, transforming her beautiful auburn hair into a luminous white. She turned her face to look out the window. "We can't keep doing this, Severus." She didn't even look at me as she tore my heart out with her words.
I sat up and put a hand on her shoulder. "Why? Lily, I love you!"
She finally looked at me. Her green eyes showed no emotion nor did her beautiful face. "Sev, I love you, too. But...I'm marrying James tomorrow! I can't keep sneaking around with you like this, it isn't fair to him! I'm ending this!"
I grabbed my boxers from the floor and pulled them on hastily. I stood from the bed and glared at Lily. "Merlin, Lils! What do you see in Potter? He's an arrogant toe rag who isn't worth your time of day!"
Lily stood from the bed, dragging the covers with her. "Don't you dare! Don't you dare say that about my fiance!"
"Me?" I scoffed. "You used to say that all the time in school! Up until..." I trailed off, not wanting to continue.
"Until what, Sev? Until you ruined our actual relationship by calling me a 'mudblood'?"
I didn't answer. I just stared at my bare feet. "Or," she said, her voice ice cold. "was it when you went and got that disgusting Mark on your arm?"
My onyx eyes met her emerald ones, "You know that I'm not loyal to him!" I hissed through clenched teeth. "You know that I'm a spy for Dumbledore!"
"Like that makes up for all of the things you've had to do!" She started to frantically grab her clothes off of the floor. She then began to get dressed. "For the things you've done! It doesn't make up for the Unforgivables you've used! It doesn't make up for the murders you've committed, either!"
I didn't have anything to say to that. I just looked her. Lily shook her head and walked towards the door to my apartment. "Good bye, Sev."
About Three Months Later, The Leaky Cauldron
"Well, Mrs. Potter. To what do I owe this wonderful surprise?" I sneered at Lily, trying to mask my broken heart.
Lily glared at me. "Cut the crap, Sev. I'm pregnant."
I just stared at her. "Well," I snap coldly. "Congratulations. I'm sure Potter is thrilled!"
Lily looked up at me. "He is-"
I couldn't contain my emotions any longer. I screamed, "I can't believe you, Lily! I can't believe that you'd break my heart, tell me you're never gonna see me again, and then, to cap it all off, you come waltzing in here saying 'I'm pregnant' and you expect me to be happy for you and Potter! I-"
"Sev!" She screamed at me, effectively cutting off my tirade. "It's yours!"
We stared at each other for a moment or so. Finally, I broke the silence by stammering, "W-what?"
"It's yours, Sev," she sighed.
"How do you know?"
She sighed again. "I did a paternity spell."
I took a good long look at her. "You don't seem too happy about this."
She looked at me with cold eyes. "Because I'm not."
"You're not gonna...you know...?"
"Abort? No. James and I are going to keep it."
I nodded, then what she said finally clicked. "What do you mean 'James and I'?"
"James is my husband. We are both going to keep our child."
I blanched. "You're not going to tell him that that child is mine?!" I shouted, outraged.
"No, Sev, I'm not! He was so happy when I told him I was pregnant that I couldn't tell him that he wasn't the father!"
I stared at her, stunned. "You're unbelievable!"
She averted her gaze. "Do you wanna know the sex?"
I flung my hands in the air. "Sure. why not?"
"Am I at least allowed to see my son?"
I stood up to leave. "Just bloody fantastic. I hope you and Potter and my son have a great life." And with that, I left the inn.
August 10th, 1980
I couldn't stop smiling. I looked down at the picture of my newborn son. He was so beautiful. His wide green eyes looked up at me and if I looked close enough, I could see flecks of my black in those emeralds. His hair was a dark ebony that stuck up in all directions just like mine did if it was kept short. Thankfully, he had Lily's nose.
I turned the picture over and saw that Lily had written his name for me on the back. It read, "Harry James Potter. Born the 31st of July, 1980." I glared at the writing and flipped the picture back over so I could look at my beautiful son again. I kissed the picture softly. Picture Harry scrunched up his face and smiled up at me. I conjured up a frame and put the picture inside of it. I sat down on my bed and just watched as Picture Harry yawned and fell asleep. I set the frame gently on my bedside table and turned out the lights in my bedroom, magically. Turning on my side, I looked at the picture of my sleeping son once more. I brushed my fingers lightly over the glass. "Good night, Harry. Daddy loves you." With that, I fell asleep.

Dark Lord Vanquished
By: Rita Skeeter
Last night, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named arrived at the Potter residence in Godric's Hallow. This reporter believes that Mr. James Potter, a well known Aurorat the Ministry, told his wife, Lily, to take their 15 month old son, Harry, to try to leave while he distracted You-Know-Who. Unfortunately, Mr. Potter was subjected to the Killing Curse, moments later. Mr. Potter's remains were found in the entrance way, while Lily's were found upstairs in what we believe to be was young Harry's nursery.
Young Harry, now an orphan, has been sent to live with the only relatives that are still alive. The relatives are his mother's sister, Petunia Dursley, and her family. They are Muggles. Merlin only knows how the entire Wizarding Community will...(for the rest of the story, turn to page 12)
I stared at the paper, feeling numb. My son, my little boy, my infant son, was going to live with Muggles! Harry should be coming to live with me! I'm his father!Not that anyone knew that I was Harry's father. I grabbed my one and only picture of my son. "Harry," Picture Harry looked up at me and smiled. "I swear to you on your mother's grave, I will save you from those Muggles. You will be with your Daddy."
A/N: Yes, I know, not all of my stories are finished. But I really wanted to get this up. I promise, Hush, My Prince and Welcome To My Lifewill continue to be updated.

Ok, Read&Review. Bye!:D
