A bit of thought flashed across Sean’s mind about Slughorn.

He tucked his hands into his sleeves, turned around, and saw Slughorn, who was originally smiling, standing in the middle of the room.

It was still Slughorn’s appearance, but his eyes became different and colder, his chin was slightly raised, and he looked down at Sean.

“What’s the matter, sir? Is there anything else I can help you with?” Sean showed a puzzled expression.

Slughorn’s eyes stared straight at him. He was silent for a while and then said in a soft voice, “A first-year student with Occlumency…”

Sean’s body tensed immediately, and the wand in his sleeve slipped into the palm of his hand.

“I advise you not to act rashly, Wallup.” Slughorn looked at him differently.

“Professor Slughorn, can I still call you that?” Sean asked with his smile.

At this moment, his mind was frantically thinking about dealing with this situation.

Who is this man disguised as Slughorn? Tom Riddle was the first person to come to Sean’s mind, but he immediately dismissed it.

Voldemort’s lifelong pursuit is immortality and power, and he will never take risks to sneak into Hogwarts when there’s Dumbledore unless he has to.

Is this one of his Death Eaters? Slughorn was a potions professor, and someone that would disguise as him, needed to know a lot of knowledge on that part. There was only one person left in Sean’s mind.

Severus Snape.

Coupled with his arrogant and disdainful attitude, Sean is even more certain.

His face was quite sour. If the person he was facing at this time was really Snape, he would be in big trouble. He is powerful, and he can’t take him by surprise.

“Wallup, you’re as smart as he said. Unlike any wizard who just entered school.” Slughorn said.

“Who are you really?” Sean smiled again.

His eyes don’t change, “Wallup, you are indeed different. You are still growing, but have you ever thought about something?”

He got a little closer and looked at Sean condescendingly, “The calmer and better you behave, the more trouble it will bring you.”

“I think I’ve seen it now,” Sean smiled wryly, then shrugged, “but I think it’s just my natural talent to act like that, Professor.”

“Talent?” Slughorn frowned slightly.

“If it wasn’t for my plan, do you think you are worthy of that note?”

Sean glanced at his mouth. He was sure that the person in front of him right now must be Snape.

“So, Professor, you have another thing for me in your plan?” He squinted at Slughorn’s face, which looked comical.

“You dare to take advantage of a person who is a lot more experienced and stronger than you, Wallup.” His tone became more and more serious.

“So, what are you going to do with me?” Sean shrugged and then showed a smile.

“Think about it…” He said menacingly.

Sean clenched the wand in his hand and smiled slightly, “I guess it’s not a good thing, Professor Snape?”

His pupils shrank slightly, and his eyes became more and more dangerous.

Sean stood still and continued, “Professor Snape, have you ever wondered why I agreed to come to your office tonight?”

Even though he knew that Sean was probably wandering around and making up all kinds of reasons. The fact that he called out his name already gave him a bad feeling.

He saw Sean show a surprised look, “You’re here, Professor Dumbledore!”

Snape’s body stiffened, but he didn’t turn around. If Dumbledore had appeared here, he would never be so calm. Therefore, this boy must be lying. Although Snape reacted, his attention was really distracted for a moment.

Sean immediately took out his wand, “Protego Diabolica!”

A blue flame immediately enveloped his body. He didn’t choose offensive spells. When facing Snape, his proficiency with those spells was too low, just like anyone would cast an offensive spell, which only resulted in a small injury if they were not proficient at it.

Sean can’t guarantee whether Snape has any defensive magic. In this case, protecting himself first is the most important thing. Seeing the blue flame rising, Snape showed a look of disbelief in his eyes and then pulled out his wand.

A red light shot at Sean, but when the blue magic flame blocked it, the light dissipated.

Looking at the flames, Snape’s eyes narrowed slightly, “So it’s true.”

In the flames, Sean had already pulled out his pistol. He didn’t dare to confirm whether Snape was the double agent or not. But if he was loyal to Voldemort, he would be in danger today.

The gap between his own magic and Grindelwald is too big. Although the flame can stop his spell, it has a limit. After this limit is exceeded, the flame will explode to devour the enemy. By then, Sean would have no means of defense.

Sean narrowed his eyes. He saw that on the opposite side of the flame, Snape’s eyes flickered a few times.

He frowned. Snape’s hand holding the wand moved down slightly as if he was about to put it down. But at this moment, he raised the wand again and then cast several consecutive spells at Sean again.

The red light was swallowed by the flame again, and the flame trembled more violently.

At this moment, a voice sounded, and he laughed nervously, “Severus, you’re at your end.”

“No need to worry about it.” Snape looked gloomy.

That voice showed a mocking tone, “Let me help you.”

Sean’s eyes widened. He saw something that passed through the flame and flew to his hand.
