Hey Everyone. I'm back with a new Story with one hell of a plot line. Not a Snarry either. It's a Lucius/Severus one with a twist that Harry is their son. Hope you like the read and this chapter is short, but others will be over 4000. I can bet you on that. I will continue on this one after I see the reviews for it. Hope you all like it.

Chapter One: Future History
Malfoy Manor, 31st July 1996
Around Midnight, Severus woke with a jolt. He was breathing far too hard for a normal nightmare. It was not the first time he had done so in the dead of night, nor was the reason for his waking new; it was the night his son was born and taken away so many years ago. He slowly came to his senses, his chest starting to rise and fall a bit slower as a hand made his way on to his torso.
"Severus?" Lucius spoke softly as he brought his partner close. He reached out a hand to brush the hair from Severus face.
"It's that time of year again, Lucius." Severus said as his throat tightened. He turned around in the bed and wrapped an arm around his lover. Lucius let out a sigh and buried his face in Severus's neck, running his hand through the potions master's dark locks.
"I know. I have nightmares about it too. It's always going to be like this Severus. No doubt about it anymore." Lucius admitted quietly, his heart aching at the thought. He shook his head and Severus sighed loudly.
"It's been fifteen years. It could have been so different, yet it's gotten so much worse." Severus said quietly as he closed his eyes.
"I hope my father went to hell." Lucius muttered as his free hand tightened into a fist.
"Hmm, I hope he did too. I just wish that I could have had the pleasure of killing Abraxas. It's just the irony of it that gets to me, Lucius. He did it with your sister. Then a couple of years later he did the same to us and stole our child, then died a couple of days later in the hands of the Dark Lord."
"I don't think you hated him Severus, you loathed him. He knew of our relationship before he forced me to marry Narcissa, not to mention the fact that she was in love with another man. I just wish I knew what he said to Druella and Cygnus that caused them to actually put forward that marriage contract. I still feel like I have cheated on you though." His face turned guilty and he couldn't look up at his lover. Severus lifted his hand and put a finger under Lucius's chin, tilting the blonde's chin up.
"Look at me. It couldn't be helped. You had to consummate the contract and you only had sex with her twice, Lucius. Narcissa is a very close friend and she was willing. She knew of our relationship beforehand and understood that it had to be done. You also gave her the child that she always wanted. Stop thinking that you committed adultery with her. I agreed to it, I may not have been happy with it, but you two were forced. The result for both of you could have been death if you didn't agree to the contract." Severus said as he placed his lips on to his partners, who gladly returned the kiss.
"Do you think he's alive and knows about us?" Lucius said as his lips hovered over Severus's.
"That is an answer I do not know. Your blasted father used the Rosier family magic on our son, and that is why we have failed to find him. Your mother never should have taught him their family magic." The blonde shook his head in disgust while Severus sneered. It went quiet between them, both thinking about their son, what it would have been like watching him grow up.
"I think it's time to tell Draco, Severus. He needs to know about everything. He asked me once why I slept in a different room from his mother. I just told him to mind his own business and walked away." Lucius said sadly. He has always hated that he lied to his son.
"Yes, the time has come. He is old enough to understand. Tell him he has a brother out there somewhere. Narcissa should be with us when Draco is told," Severus suggested and Lucius nodded. "I promise you Lucius that we will see Xeryus again. I will never give up on him." He whispered to his lover. Lucius tightened his hold on Severus.
"I hope so Severus, I hope so." Lucius muttered as he looked at Severus, who also let a tear slip.
What they didn't know at that moment was that Fate was watching them. It was time for secrets to be revealed. She hovered over the photo on the night side table, smiling at the little boy who was in the picture with his fathers. With an unnoticeable pop, she went to the boy who was not so little anymore. She smiled sadly at the boy, who had his bare back to her.
She noticed the silvery lines on his back that shown in the moon light. Her eyes trailed along them and shook her head in disgust. With a click of her fingers, she entered the boy's mind: walking into his unconcious.
So what do you think? It makes my day when I read your reviews. It makes me want to carry on writing.
