Snape and Draco Story Contest


For months Snape had been offering to help Draco design his dark plan for Dumbledore's end; and although at that time we believed this to be evidence of his treachery against Dumbledore, we later learned that Snape only acted out of a desire to protect Draco and a determination to keep promises that he had made to both Dumbledore and Draco's mother.

Once the deed was done, no doubt the Dark Lord was delirious with joy, but what about young Draco and Snape who, because of their actions, were forced to flee in the middle of the night to a location unknown? In 1000 words or less, write a story about where Snape and Draco apparated to immediately after fleeing Hogwarts and of the events that transpired there.
