WHO: Severus Snape and Lily Evans
WHEN: December 2nd, 1pm
WHERE: The closet with student’s potions ingredients
Severus made quick work of the walk through the dungeons. One of his favorite things about being sorted into Slytherin house was the easy walk to the Potions classroom. Severus had always liked the dungeons. Many complained about the darkness, or how the walls always seemed damp. Severus, on the other hand, very much enjoyed the morbid decor. It was fitting, for him. He slipped inside of the classroom. It was empty, but that was to be expected. It was the weekend, so Professor Slughorn was probably off somewhere in the village. The door to the student cupboard was open an inch and he headed straight towards there.
Severus yanked open the door, and as he did so, Peeves appeared. He must have been hiding, invisible to Severus’ eyes. Severus didn’t have time to react. Peeves shoved him forward into the storage closet with a cackle and slammed the door shut behind him. Severus could hear the lock click into place and something told him that a simple unlocking charm just wouldn’t do the trick. He sighed and turned around. This was when he noticed that he was not alone. Standing there before him, in all of her lovely glory, was Lily Evans. He froze in place. No. No. This was not good. And then. Wait. Yes. Yes. This is good. It was Lily, standing in front of him again. He knew this interaction wouldn’t be pretty. She still hated him. (She probably always would.) He swallowed the lump in his throat, unsure what to say. He did, however, offer her a tentative smile.
