12 The Tortures of Waiting

As he walked by Valora felt him press something small and thin into her hand.

"Did you know she was still alive?"

15 Making the Choice

"Didn't you hear what I said? He's going to try and kill you. You embarassed him, mocked him, eluded him for years. You managed to trick one of the greatest wizards in history. Doesn't that mean anything?" Severus asked. Valora shrugged.

"I guess it means I'd better watch myself." she replied with a smile.

22 All We Have Is Now

"Sirius, don't. I'm sick to death of hearing your Snape conspiracy theories. You've been creating them since first year and you'd think at 36 you'd have given up on them but no, here you sit, with a new one for me all the time." Valora said, with an exasperated sigh.

23 Love Will Lead Us

"You, me and Potter. One big, happy family. That's how you want it?" Severus asked, looking skeptical. Valora paused and rested her hands on his chest so that she could feel his heartbeat thrumming steadily beneath her fingers, then she looked back up into his grey eyes.

"Yes." She said finally. That is exactly what she wanted.
