Author Note: I like the way this one turned out. I also think you should know that the chapters in this story are very short and it's meant to be that way because of the POV changes. Please be patient and don't say I didn't warn you.

1: Letter

Dear Severus,

You don't know who I am right now and there is a chance I won't ever send this, but in the off sort I do please don't attempt to find me if I leave this letter unsigned.

I am writing to tell you that I love you. I have felt this way for quite some time. I assure you this is no joke so you can stop sneering any time. Let me explain how I came to the conclusion that I love you.

It all begins with my childhood, which was horrific to say the least. I was beat, raped, and went weeks with only bread and water. No one has been told of my home life. It isn't anyone else's business but my own. I didn't know I was a wizard until I obtained my Hogwarts letter and finding out was the best thing to ever happen to me.

You are most likely wondering why I don't just come and tell you all these things myself, but I cant. I have been through too much to face another rejection once more.

It was a day almost a year ago that I realized my feeling for you were more than normal. I had just seen you in a bad mood, but no more than your usual. Suddenly there was this urge to make you smile. I don't think I've ever seen you smile. Something clicked for me that day and it's gotten so bad I can't stop thinking about seeing you smile.

Now that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is gone I feel I should at the very least inform you that one other person besides you has your best at heart. You are not alone.

Love Always,

I can't do it, sorry!
