ME: I sadly do not own the characters or places presented in this story. Only the strange and naughty plot.

HARRY: Wow!

SEVERUS: I'm glad she doesn't own me. I wouldn't last under her…. (writing?)

1: Confusion

I had just dismissed my 8th year potions class and was sitting at my desk grading some papers when I realized I wasn't alone. Looking up, I found intent green eyes staring back at me.

"Mr. Potter what do you want?" I asked as calmly as I could. Harry Potter shifted his feet and looked rather embarrassed. "Spit it out, Potter, I don't have all day."

"Well… umm… I was talking to Professor Dumbledore yesterday and he told me about how he survived and I asked him if he knew how you did it when the snake attacked you. He said all he knew was it had something to do with a potion and if I wanted to know I should ask. Will you tell me?" Harry stumbled a little at first, but once he was talking he couldn't stop. He looked down towards his feet even more embarrassed than before.

"Sit." I waited while he plopped ungracefully into the seat before my desk. "No interruptions." He nodded and I began. "The Headmaster was correct. I did use a potion. I let the snake bite my robes occasionally so I could obtain the venom off of them. I used that venom to find an antidote and took the antidote before I was summoned to the shack. Her bite hurt, but was not poisonous. Left a really nasty too. The effects of everything like the snake, you killing Voldemort, and me defying him caused my Dark Mark to vanish. I am as healthy as I've ever been."

Harry stood and stepped closer. "Can I see your arm?" he asked softly like he was afraid of being to expressive. Sighing I rolled back the sleeve on my left arm and presented the perfect skin for inspection. Soft fingertips trailed along my forearm causing a slight shiver. Harry smiled.

"I'm happy for you. You don't have to worry about that evil bastard anymore." Harry said quite calmly for someone who was obviously upset. I sighed visibly. "Umm… thank you for everything you did. Without your training these past couple years I never would have survived." Harry spoke so softly I almost didn't hear him.

"Oh, your welcome. I wanted Voldemort gone just as much as anyone else." I told him. "You best go, it wouldn't do to be late. Minerva would have my arse." I said laughing at the shocked look upon Potter's face.

"Yeah, see you!" He said leaving the classroom. I sighed again wondering why Dumbledore hadn't just told the boy everything. Why make him come to me for the answers he obviously needed to hear? I was so confused.
