Chapter 14

Snape's POV

Severus Snape was setting in the Great Hall when Professor Flitwick brought in the line of new students. The sorting hat sang its annoying song and then they waited for each student to be sorted. When one of the students ended up in Slytherin he clapped for them, as he was still loyal to his old house. Voldemort had finally been defeated and once again Horus Lupin was haled a hero.

"Lupin, Lily."

The girl that made his life hell went over and the hat was placed on her head.

"HUFFLEPUFF!" the hat shouted and the Hufflepuff table cheered as she went over to their table.

"Lupin, Morgana."

"HUFFLEPUFF!" the hat shouted again and she went over to join her sister at the Hufflepuff table.

"Lupin, Raven."

"HUFFLEPUFF!" the hat repeated again and she went over to join her sisters.

Later that night Snape wrote to Horus and told him which house his pride and joy had been sorted into. When the owl left with it he turned to the painting of Lily Evens that he had made.

"Lily, I'm going to get life insurance for myself," he told the painting, "Because seven years with the triple terrors is enough to send me to the grave."

The next day Snape went to the bathroom and landed in the hospital wing. The toilet had exploded. Snape knew who had done it and he told himself that he was going to get back at them. Once he was back in his office he wrote the following note to Horus.


The Puff Puffs have attacked me and if you don't take care of it I'm going to puff them into little popcorn and keep them as an example.

Severus Snape

Puff puffs, yep, that was the perfect nickname for the three trouble-makers.

And guess what, everyone, the nickname stuck.


A/N: Well that's the end of the story. I'm glad that everyone reviewed and kept my spirits up even when I wasn't writing new chapters. Thanks again for reviewing.
