( This is after the 'Trial Scene' and it's mainly focused on Danielle and Snape. Duuuuuuuuh.... Now on with the show...er.. story.... o.O ack! I'm not awake yet. Need caffene :p)
Danielle backed away, her expression becomming cold once more. Colder than Snapes. A icy hand gripping her once warm and caring heart. " What's done is done. My journey has ended." she said to herself and exited Town Hall and away from civilization. Severus Snape watched her go and decided to follow her. He followed her into the Graveyard. Danielle took out the Pumpkin Blade and held it up to her heart, " I better make this quick." she said just as Snape snatched the sword from her. " No Danielle." he said firmly, yet his voice held a tinge of concern.
Danielle looked up at Snape. Pain, hatred and bitterness could be seen in her saddened hazel eyes. " Why not?!?!?" Snape looked into her eyes and spoke softly, " We've been through this Danielle." Danielle shrugged no longer caring, " So what. We're done with the trial and I'm not needed anymore! I've been through hell and back but does anyone care? NO!" fresh tears welled up in the young girls eyes. Snape gently placed his hand on Danielle's shoulder reasuringly, " I care Danielle." he said soothingly. " You do?" she asked sadly and he nodded. Danielle wanted to hug Snape but she stoped herself. Snape held out his arms greeting Danielle into a hug, she flung her arms around him as he held her comfortingly.
Danielle began to cry silently as Snape continued to hold her. He rubbed her back in small circular motions which seemed to calm her. " Shhh... it's okay now Danielle." he said softly. The Halloween sweet autum wind began to blow, Danielle pulled her robes tightly around her trying to knock off the chill. Snape took off his long black robes and draped them around Danielle. She gave him a smile of thanks.
The two then headed back into town, before they reached Town Hall Danielle stopped Snape. She stood on the tips of her toes and lightly kissed him on the cheek. She then turned and continued walking. Severus stood there for a minute or two quite speechless, a small smile spread across his face and he followed after Danielle.
Upon reaching Town Hall a horrible site beheld Danielle's eyes. Her good friend Nightmare was attacking Kade. She was horrified and decided to try and stop Nightmare as best she could only to be attacked herself. Danielle was thrown into a wall 'HARD!'. Severus trotted over to Danielle, he held out his hand to help Danielle up. The young turtlette revived and tried to go back after Nightmare but Snape stopped her. " I can't watch her kill him! I just can't!" Danielle said and broke free. She then pulled out her wand, " Forgive me Nightmare. EXPELLIARMUS!!!!" Nightmare is thrown backwards into a wall. The demoness soon gets up and goes to attack Danielle. Snape pushed her out of the way just in time only for himself to be attacked by Nightmare. Danielle struggled to get up and then pummeled into Nightmare, " LEAVE SNAPE ALONE!!!!!" she screamed. Danielle attacked Nightmare will all her might only to be kicked off. Snape got ahold of Danielle once more, " Leave he alone.. never intrude in a demon's fury." he said sternly in a kind manner. " I just can't let her kill someone..." she said.
Danielle watched Nightmare pull out her heart, " YOU SEE THIS KADE!!! YOU SEE IT? IT IS MY HEART! MY HEART WHICH YOU HAVE SHATTERED!!!" she screamed and threw it aside. " AND NOW BECAUSE OF YOU, I AM IN THIS UNBEARABLE TORMENT!!!" Danielle was now in tears, she fell to the ground and wept. " Please make this go away..please make this end... I don't want to see anyone else get hurt.." she said sadly.
Nightmare had reached for her demon blade, Danielle looked up and tried to block Kade from getting hurt but she was too late. Kade screamed out in pain. " NOOOOOOOOOO" Danielle beared her teeth in a full fit of rage. " Remove the blade now Nightmare or I'll make you!!!!" she demanded. But Nightmare ignored her, Danielle round housed kicked Nightmare so hard that it sent her flying into a wall. Nightmare soon recovered and attacked Danielle. Snape pulled her out of the way to prevent her from being hurt.
Joker then turned on Danielle trying to protect Nightmare only for his chin to be connected with Danielle's foot. She then turned back to Nightmare, " STOP THIS NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!" she screamed. Nightmare attacked Danielle once again and slammed her into the ground. Danielle cried out in pain, she got up quickly and pummled into Nightmare knocking her into a wall. Danielle then saw that Harley was holding Nightmare's heart.
She moved quickly, doing a series of backflips and handsprings over to Harley. She picked up Nightmare's heart and securely placed it inside her robes. She watched Nightmare attacking Joker, pinning him to the ground. ' I have to do something..I'm getting pretty tired and weak but I have to keep this up for a little bit longer.' Nightmare grabbed Joker by his collar and throws him aside and then attacks him again. Joker managed to kick her off, " I think you need that heart Nightmare..." Danielle dodged out of the way and got to an oppening. " HEY NIGHTMARE!!!!" she yelled. " Being unable to forigve those who have hurt you is the cause of pain!!! I know this because Splinter told me! Plus I was beaten by my uncle!!! You helped him Nightmare and you helped me!!! We LOVE YOU!!!" she yelled. Nightmare continued to attack Joker, gripping him with her claws. He managed to kick her away and stood quickly. Bleeding from a lot of places. Nightmare hissed, her mouth showing off her fangs. She moved to attack again but stops and turns to Danielle. She then charaged at the young turtlette. Snape was just about to move when Danielle pulled out her wand, " IMMOBULUS!!!!" she yelled. Nightmare froze in her tracks, Danielle moved quickly and replaced Nightmare's heart before the spell wore off. Nightmare began to calm down as he heart begins to beat.
Danielle backed away quickly and moves over to Snape, handing him a healing potion which she had just brewed in just a few minutes. Snape took the potion and drank it, he gave Danielle a small smile of thanks.
( I'm going to jump ahead, sorry but I dun feel like writing everything word for word.)
Jack had sent Harley, Joker and NIghtmare back to Gotham City and put a protetion charm over them and their hideout so as Batman couldn't find them, unless they did such a horrible crime. Snape looked at Danielle, " Are you ready to go home Danielle?" he asked softly. Danielle shrugged. Severus sighed softly and placed his hand on Danielle's shoulder, " Would you like to go back home to New York?" he asked. Danielle shook her head, " I don't belong there." she said quietly. " Hogwarts then?" he asked and Danielle nodded.
' I only hope that things don't go back to the way they were... I don't want to be treated horribly... I couldn't stand it..' Danielle's thoughts were interrupted as she felt Snape's hand on her shoulder. " Come Danielle, we need to catch the Hogwarts Express." he said and Danielle held onto him as they apperated on Platform 9 and 3/4. Once upon the train Danielle took a seat across from Snape.
Danielle looked outside the window and would every now and then glance back at Snape. He saw the girls saddened expression, he got up and moved to sit beside her. Slowly but surely he placed a arm around her, embracing her in a warm fatherly like hug. " Danielle... when you tried to thrust that sword into your heart... I thought I was going to loose you for good. I may have treated you badly before and I now see that and I apologize to you. I do hope you forgive me and my actions. I took 'Treating Gryffindors' badly a little too far. You are not just a Gryffindor or another one of my students. You are a loyal and true friend, a kind and caring young girl who has a heart of gold. Wether you know it or not Danielle everything that you have done has affected me. When you would say you wanted to die, that you were lonely and didn't have anyone... it would break my heart and all I wanted to do was to comfort you but I couldn't do it...not at Hogwarts at least. My dear child... please understand I never intended to hurt you in any form or fashion, not spiritually or emotionally and especially not physically. I know realize that you really do care and love me. No one in years has even thought of caring about me. Well besides Dumbledore but he's not my student." Slight chuckle.
Severus looked down at Danielle whose head rest against his chest, her eyes closed but still listening to him. Snape's heart beat contentedly, he hugged the young girl gently and placed a soft kiss on the top of her head. He vowed that he would forever protect her and make up for the times he had broken her heart. Danielle hugged Snape gently and whispered softly, " I love you Professor Snape." Severus closed his eyes upon hearing her kind and true words and for the first time in years fresh tears filled his eyes. He allowed them to fall freely and he cried silently. He hugged Danielle and pulled her head next to his heart. The two closed their eyes and drifted off to sleep listening to the gentle chugging of the Hogwarts Express.
