Hermione's POV

     It's the first day back at Hogwarts since the war and the defeat of Voldemort. Harry and Ron had decided to start their auror training. So they weren't going to be around to get into trouble with. It is just me, Ginny, Neville and Luna.

Today, we get our schedules. This I am dreading and there is only one reason behind that. I would have to take Defense Against the Dark Arts with none other than Severus Snape. Many people think he died in the Final Battle but Harry took pity on him and made me save him.

Professor Snape has been shut up in his home with no outside interaction. This of course was his own chose. Harry, Ron and I would visit him twice a month. I only went because Harry begged me to go. He and Ron soon forgave Snape but for some reason I Just couldn't and still can't bring myself to forgive him for the hell he put the three of us through.

Oh, well. Who knows maybe Snape will surprise me this year. Maybe he won't be a total jerk to all of us Gryffindors. Well, at least I don't have to deal with him until after lunch. Ginny, Neville, Luna and I have every class together.

Well, it's time to go to Potions with Slytherin and Ravenclaw. Then, Herbology with just Ravenclaw. After that it would be time for lunch. It's what comes after that, that I HATE.

Snape's POV

First day back. Oh, help me now. All the students here hate me because none of them know the truth. Well, that's not true Hermione knows. So, I'm sure that her friends know as well. To be honest I really don't care what all of them think. Again not true. I care about Hermione and what she thinks. After all she is the one who saved me. She gave me a second chance at life. She saved me when I had never done a thing to deserve it.

Well, here is my first class if the day, which mean that there is only 3 more hours until I can prove to everyone including Hermione that I really am a good guy. Harry and Ron both forgave me for the hell I put them all through. However, Hermione won't. I'm determined to get her to forgive me. I refuse to live the rest of my life knowing the person who saved it hates me.


Defense Against the Dark Arts. That class was a shock for them all. They all expected it to be like their third year, but it wasn't at all. Everyone walked in and there were no desk just a wooden man on wheels with a target on it. What shocked everyone the most was how relaxed Professor Snape looked leaning up against the target.

Once everyone was in the classroom, the doors closed themselves. That's when Professor Snape took out the his wand and walked in front of the class and began to speak.

"Welcome back students. You all may be wondering why you have to take this class even after almost all of you fought against Voldemort and his followers..."

"So you mean yourself,right?"

"Whether you want to except it or not, I was on your side!" Snape exclaimed.

"Then why dud you kill Dumbldore?"

"Enough Professor Snape was and still is on our side. He killed Dumbledore because Dumbledore asked him too. So that Voldemort would really trust him. So that he could provide the Order with information. So if you wouldn't mind I would love to hear what Professor Snape has to say!" Yelled Ginny.

"Thank you, Ms.Weasley. There are several spells that most wouldn't think to use as defensive spells, but I'm going to show you how to use them, correctly."

"So what are we learning today?" Hermione asked.

"Some things never change. We are going to be learning the Attraction Spell. Can you tell me what this spell does?"

"It attracts your target to who or whatever you want it to be attracted to. I mean its kinda in the name of the spell."

"10 points from Gryffindor and Ms.Granger, I expect to see you in here by 7 o'clock."


"Alright. Ms.Granger, we can make it a week of detention. Well, I'm in a good mood so if you can keep that mouth of yours under control then it will be just for tonight. Why don't you show us how to do this spell?"

"Attractatum..." She said then thought of the thing more like person she wanted her target to attract to but nothing happened.
The bell rang. "I want all of you to write an essay about what can happen if the spell isn't done correctly. Oh, and don't forget Ms.Granger, 7 o'clock."
