19 years later...
Severus entered King's cross station, along with Harry and Ginny. They were followed by three children. James Sirius Snape was about to enter his second year at Hogwarts, while Albus Severus was about to enter his first year. Lily Luna was still a bit young for Hogwarts, but it would not be long before three Snape children would be learning about the wonders of magic. Albus looked at Severus as they came to the barrier. He had the same striking green eyes as both Harry and Lily.
"Together?" He asked nervously. Severus nodded.
"Together." He held onto Albus' trolley as the two of them crossed through the barrier to get to platform nine and three quarters.
Severus knew that Albus was nervous about his sorting. James had teased the boy enough about being sorted into Slytherin. Severus had assured Albus that he would find success in both houses. Albus looked up to Severus, partly because he was named after him, and there was no one that he confided in more.
Severus caught sight of the Malfoy family. Draco was embracing his son Scorpius.
"Why don't you go with your father Albus? I will be along in a moment."
"Okay Grandpa Sev." He wheeled his trolley over towards his parents. Severus walked over to meet with the Malfoys
"Good morning Lucius, Narcissa, and Draco. Just sent young Scorpius off then."
"Yes sir. Will you still be teaching Potions?" Draco inquired.
"Naturally." He replied coolly.
"So Severus, which house will young Albus be placed in? Maybe Slytherin with Scorpius." Lucius debated.
"I honestly don't know Lucius." He responded. He has both Slytherin and Gryffindor in his family so it could very well be either. I should get going. I have to say good bye to Albus before he leaves."
"We shall see you later then." Lucius declared.
Severus carried on to meet up with his family. Albus and Harry were kneeling.
"Dad, what if I am put in Slytherin?"
"Albus Severus Snape, you were named after two Headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them, your Grandfather, was a Slytherin and he is the bravest man I've ever known."
"You're right Dad. If get put in Slytherin, Grandpa Sev will be my Head of House. Thanks."
"No problem son." Harry embraced Albus. Severus came to hug Albus goodbye.
"You better not be calling me Sev when I'm teaching you or there will be trouble young man. You'd better go. The train will be leaving soon." He ruffled Albus' hair. The young boy headed through one of the side doors of the train and went to join his brother. Severus put a hand on his son's shoulder.
"Think he'll choose Slytherin then?"
"I know he will." Harry replied. "He idolizes you, after all." Severus smiled. As the train pulled out of the station and he waved goodbye to his grandchildren, he reflected on all that had happened in the last nineteen years. If anyone told him that he and Harry would ever get along, he would have told them that they were greatly mistaken. Yet, here he was standing beside his son and feeling happier than he ever had. He gained a family he never knew he had and he was free of the Dark Lord's influence. He saw Harry's hand move to his forehead.
Neither Harry's scar nor his Dark Mark had pained them in nineteen years. All was well.
Well, what did you guys think of that chapter? Let me know in a review. They are greatly appreciated. The story has come to an end. Thanks to the suggestion of a reviewer, who I can only thank an unnamed guest, I have decided to write a prequel to this story about Sev/Lily. It will cover the events from the incident in fifth year to just after the first fall of the Dark Lord.
Until next time, Ciao
