Fifteen-year-old Severus awoke late on Christmas morning. There wasn't enough money for the train fare to go home for Christmas this year, so he decided to make the most of his holiday by studying. Pulling his school robes on over his nightshirt, he was surprised to discover two gifts at the foot of his bed. One was from his mother--a hand-knit, hunter-green jumper. The other box contained a pair of green and gray mittens. The card read:

Dear Severus,
I know you can't hold my hand in public, but hopefully this will be close enough. Happy Christmas.
Love,
Lily
