Severus was sitting in the headmaster's office waiting of Hogwarts school of which craft and wizardry. The Headmaster wanted to talk to him as soon as everyone had gone home for the summer.

"I wonder what he wants to talk to me about" Severus said to himself. At long last Albus came into his office. "Severus my dear boy I'm so sorry to have kept you waiting" he said.

"Oh that's not a problem Albus" Severus said. "Albus what is it that you wanted to talk to me about?" he asked. "Severus I'm afraid your not going to like what I have to tell you" he said. "Just tell me Albus" he said. "Severus it pains me to tell you this but Tina is being abused by the Dursley's" Albus said.

Severus's eyes darkened in anger. "I knew something like this would happen, you should have let her stay with me, I was her foster father when she was two, I love her!" Severus hissed angrily. "I know my boy, I know" he said. Just then there was a knock at the door. "Come in!" Albus called.

The door opened and in stepped Fred and George Weasley. "Oh are we interrupting something headmaster?" Fred asked. "Oh that's quite all right Mister Weasley what can I do for you" he asked. "Well we thought you might want to see this recent picture of Tina" George said handing Albus a photo of a smiling ten year old girl. Albus looked at the photo and smiled before handing it off to Severus.

Severus looked at the photo and tried to hold back his tears. "She looks just like her mother" he said. "She misses you Severus" Fred said. "I miss her too" he said. "Boys now that you're here I need to ask Severus for a favor" Albus said. "What is it Albus?" he asked.

"You and I both know that some of the kids aren't safe at their homes this summer because Voldemort is targeting Harry, so I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking Harry, Ron, Fred, George, Draco, Hermione, Ginny, Luna, and Tina with you when you go to your parents house in New York for the summer" he said. "Of course I'll take them Albus" Severus said. "Boys not a word to the other's about this" Albus said. "Oh Please headmaster we may be in Slytherin instead of Gryffindor but we're not tattlers" George said. "Thank you boys now run along, I need to talk to Severus about one more thing" Albus said.

"What is it Albus?" Severus asked as the boys left the room and closed the door behind them. "Severus I know you love Tina so I was wondering would you like to adopt her?" he asked. "Yes of course I want to adopt her Albus I love her!" Severus cried happily. "If this is all headmaster I need to go and get things I need for the kids before I pick them up" he said. "Very well my boy off you go" Albus said.

"Goodnight headmaster" Severus said and apparated away.
