Summer Love

A retelling of Severus' first and only love, Lily Evans.


1. The Summer That Changed Everything

Lily Evans held her hand out to her sister, showing her the violet flower. It was the size of a quarter, totally, harmless, and yet Petunia stared at it as if it had fangs and wings. Lily felt like crying. "Petunia, look. Look what I made for you!" she said softly. "You're a freak," replied her sister. "A freak!" 

Lily's eyes pricked with tears. "But-"

"MUM! Lily... she's doing things she shouldn't be able to do! Help me!" cried Petunia, running to the cottage.

Lily sat down, dejected. "What's wrong with me?" she asked, to no one in particular. Her face was covered in tears. 

"Nothing, there's nothing wrong with you." a calm voice from behind her said.

Lily whirled around. There, standing off toward the edge of the cottage, was a boy. He was dressed in all black, with dark hair and pale skin. He stepped carefully out of the tangle of trees. Stepping towards Lily, he held out his hand.

"Who are you?" asked Lily.

"I'm a wizard. So are you. Well, you'll be a witch, but same idea." As Lily watched, the boy's hand was suddenly filled with a small purple flower, similar to the one Lily had made grown. "I'm like you, I can also do things that normal people can't do." 

"I'm- I'm not a freak, am I?" She sounded unsure. 

"No, you're a witch. There are many people like you. In fact, in a few years, you'll probably get to go to Hogwarts. It's a whole school for people like us. But you can't do magic outside of there. They'll let you go this time, because you didn't know, but after that, you'll have to be really careful not to do it outside of Hogwarts."

"Magic?" asked Lily.

"Magic," agreed the boy.
