Professor Severus Snape (9 January, 1960 – 2 May, 1998) was a half-blood wizard who was the son of the witch Eileen Prince and Muggle, Tobias Snape. During his lifetime, Snape was the Potions master (1981–1996), Defence Against the Dark Arts professor (1996-1997), and Headmaster (1997-1998) of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (which he attended as a student from 1971 until 1978). He was also member of the Order of the Phoenix, and played a very important role in both of the Wizarding Wars against Lord Voldemort.
The man walked to the school. His black robes billowed behind him. Glancing at the lake, he notices the dark ginger hair against the moon-glistened water. Curious, he walks over to the shape.
When he gets close enough, he sees it is a woman. She doesn't turn around but says, "Hello, Severus." Severus, suprised, stares at her. When he finally regains his composure, he asks,"How did you know it was me, Lily?"
Lily laughs and points to the water. There, the shimmering reflections of her and Severus stare back at them. Finally, she turns to face him.
