This is the story of Severus Snape and Lily Evans in seven 100 word drabbles told from Severus's point of view.


The first time he saw her, at nine years old, she was everything a little girl should be. Running and playing with her sister, laughing as they both swung as high as they could on the playground swings. Her red hair whipped across her face as the wind hit her.

She fascinated him, captivated him.

She loved her sister, he could see that clearly and he ached for that bond.

She turned in his direction with a smile on her face. She couldn't see him where he was hiding but he could see her perfectly.

His heart skipped a beat.
