Conviction

“‘I wish…I wish I were dead…’

‘And what use would that be to anyone?’ said Dumbledore coldly. ‘If you loved Lily Evans, if you truly loved her, then your way forward is clear.’

Snape seemed to peer through a haze of pain, and Dumbledore’s words appeared to take a long time to reach him.

‘What-what do you mean?’

You know how and why she died. Make sure it was not in vain. Help me protect Lily’s son.’

‘He does not need protection. The Dark Lord has gone-‘

‘The Dark Lord will return, and Harry Potter will be in terrible danger when he does.’

There was a long pause, and slowly Snape regained control of himself, mastered his own breathing. At last he said, ‘Very well. Very well….'”
