The upload rate is currently at 6 chapters per week, I may increase it in the future if I have more time. I do not have specific days or times for the uploads because my full-time job has an erratic schedule so I upload whenever I have the time. But you can expect 6 new chapters by the end of the week. Sorry for the inconvenience, I hope my readers understand. A.N - - No harem - There will be a lot of violence, so be warned. - The pacing will not be too fast, this is going to be longer than my previous fic so be patient.

Chapter 207: Snape's Suspicions

"What is he doing here?" Snape frowned.

"It looks like he is on a date, but…is that girl?..." Lily stared at the black-haired girl accompanying her son. 

Of course, she knew who this was. Over the last year, she had heard her family name way too many times.

She only found it strange to see Harry with her. After all, she knew her son had only attended her party to gain some information on Lord Parkinson and didn't really have any interest in the young Slytherin girl.

"That is Pansy Parkinson, one of my snakes," Snape said. "What is she doing with Potter?"

Harry and Pansy went to find a table to sit down. Moments later, a large group of Slytherin senior students entered the pub and sat down at a nearby table behind Harry.

Not even a minute later, the door opened again, and Daphne and Tracey came inside and also sat down at a nearby table.

"Something suspicious is going on…" Lily said softly.

"No matter, there are some things I need to tell you, Lily," Snape insisted, not willing to allow this to distract him from his objective. He may not have another chance to speak with Lily like this.

She moved her eyes from Harry and back to Snape. "What is this important thing you have to say? And you mentioned it was about Harry?"

Snape leaned closer and glanced toward Harry's table for a moment like he wanted to make sure he was not going to hear what he had to say. "Haven't you noticed any suspicious behavior from him?"

"Suspicious behavior? You are going to have to be more specific than that," Lily raised an eyebrow. She could not comment on anything specific since she didn't know what Snape had found out. After his first year, her son wasn't being subtle about his abilities.

"Yes…I started to notice his strange behavior since his first year. There was something different about him, but I couldn't tell what it was until much later. He was always calm and collected, nothing like what you would expect from an eleven-year-old."

"Some kids are quieter than others…the youngest Greengrass, for example, would rarely speak more than two words in a row," Lily pointed out.

"That one is also strange….but this is not all. His grades were average, and he never got into trouble. If he wasn't your son, I would barely have noticed he was one of my students at all. At least until what happened at the end of the year…"

"Ah yes… the matter with the Defense professor who attacked my son," Lily said.

"Him and the Greengrass heir. He apparently attacked them for no good reason and then…he disappeared without a trace. No one has ever seen him again, and honestly, I'm convinced that he is dead."

"Well…good! How dared he attack my son," Lily huffed.

"If only that was all…but things got weirder in the second year. To begin with, his grades went from average to the best of the year in almost every subject, leading me to believe that his average performance from the previous year was done on purpose," Snape said.

"You think he wanted to get bad grades?...what about…he studied harder in his second year?" Lily suggested.

Snape ignored this and continued. "Then there's what happened during the first Dueling Club. He crushed the head of the snake that Malfoy summoned. He did it with one hand and barely reacted to it. Don't you think that is weird?"

"Yes, speaking of that…why did you even think it was a good idea to teach the snake summoning spell to a second year and then tell him to use it in a room filled with children?" Lily asked.

"I…" Snape was not expecting that question. "That's not the important part!"

"Isn't it?" Lily crossed her arms.

"Anyhow…his duel against Draco was also bizarre…he used very advanced techniques that a second year should not know even existed."

"Severus…so far you have only told me that my son is very mature for his age and has a lot of talent for using magic. And as you can already expect…I knew these things about him."

"It's not just that…" Snape could not speak about the events involving the basilisk and the Chamber of Secrets, even though he was convinced that Harry was somehow involved. But there was something else that happened that year. 

"Right, what about this? Your son came to my office dragging the wounded body of a fifth-year boy. He was covered in bruises, cuts, and broken bones."

Lily looked somewhat surprised. She had not heard about this, but she knew that Harry would not attack someone without a good reason. "Why wasn't I called to the school and informed of this?"

Snape made a troubled expression. He had forgotten why he and the Headmaster were trying to hide that affair. "Ehm…we couldn't make a big deal about it."

"Why did Harry attack him? And don't you dare tell me that it was for no reason. I will go talk with Dumbledore to get the details if necessary."

Snape felt Lily's angry eyes on him and became nervous. "The boy was…he was apparently in the midst of attacking some first-year girl when your son decided to intervene."

"A first-year girl?...who?" Lily asked in a cold tone.

Snape was now regretting bringing this up. "Some Ravenclaw girl….Lovegood, I think."

"Luna Lovegood," Lily added. "So, my son saved Luna and beat that student in the process…what happened next? Since you wanted to keep it on a low profile, I assume it was to protect the attacker and not my son or Luna."

"Your son threatened me! He told me that I should keep my snakes in line. And that if I allowed this to happen again, he said…he said he would take care of it by himself. You should have seen his face when he told me that. I can't forget about his eyes…" Snape froze when he saw Lily.

The look in her eyes right now was very similar to the one Harry had that day. Those cold green eyes…

Then Lily spoke in a tone that gave him shivers. "And yet…you allowed this to happen again, didn't you, Severus? You let my daughter and her friends be attacked because you didn't want to maintain order in your house. What do you have to say about that?"
