CHAPTER 52: SecretsMature

Madame Pomphrey had gone to get Professor Dumbledore and Severus went looking for Professor Slughorn.  Alice was all alone in the hospital wing, and she was sweating bullets.  When they got back, she could see the anxiety in Snape's eyes.

"What happened?" Alice immediatly asked Slughorn.

"I-I don't know.." he said.

"I thought I wasn't able to get pregnant!" yelled Alice.  "Otherwise I would've used a contraceptive charm!"

"I thought you weren't able to get pregnant..but I wasn't completely sure.. I'd never used the potion on a woman before..."

"Well, you could've told me that!" screamed Alice.

Severus took her hand.

"Alice," he said, "calm down, it'll be okay."  His words were sincere, although Alice could see the same fear and stress in his eyes that she was feeling right now.

"We can't tell Draco," said Alice.  "He's too young to be a father and if he finds out, that's exactly what he'll want to be."  Snape nodded.  "Severus," said Alice.  "I don't care if when this baby is born it is, without a doubt, a Malfoy, we can't tell him."
