Summary: The race for the Horcruxes is on, and Severus is determined that no matter what, he will come out a winner.
Tripping, running after him. Curses bubbling up, countered each time. ‘Blocked again and again and again until you learn to keep your mouth shut and your mind closed, Potter!’
Harry struggled to his feet, feeling the world fade around him until all he saw was Snape, staring at him. This was not how the dream normally went, but who was he to fight it? He had a chance and Snape at his mercy. He raised his wand, only to see it disappear in his hands. Snape stepped forward, a sneer on his face, his wand digging into Harry’s throat.
‘Think, boy. For once in your pitiful life, think!’
Harry tried to step back, but found he couldn’t move. He also couldn’t explain how calm he felt, meeting Snape’s gaze evenly.
Snape stepped back, lowering his wand. ‘Be ready.’
‘Ready for what?’ Harry shook his head as Severus slowly disappeared. ‘Ready for what?!’ he shouted, nothing but the soft echoes of his voice answering him.
