Calling Me On
He heard her voice coming through the darkness, calling to him. He followed it gladly, having waited nearly twenty years to hear it again.

Another voice speared through the void. Severus! No siren's call, this. A raw shriek, filled with incalculable grief. Something he recognized intimately.
Severus paused. And turned back. Lily might call for him, wait for him, but Hermione...
Hermione needed him.
This was inspired by "She's the One", a song by World Party.
