Voldemort is gone and Harry's relatives had no desire to keep Harry for long, so he was placed into an orphanage until he was adopted by a family. But when they pass away a few years later, he is placed into the custody of another who had just moved to Spinner's End. That is when Severus first saw the boy without even knowing who he was. The little boy, seven years old, who was always forgotten, uncared for and treated like filth. Severus watches this boy and sees a reflection of his own childhood. And when they meet, Severus vows to offer kindness where no one else does, in the form of a simple piece of food the boy lacked or a warm blanket for the cold days ahead. And when things get worst, he even offers shelter to the child the world had forgotten and cast aside.
The boy Severus now wants to save.

“This is the story that didn't make the papers, didn't make the history books and certainly didn't make a shred of sense to those involved in it. I won't lie nor will I sugar-coat things, however I've been known to exaggerate at times so you'll have to deal with that. What I have to tell you is true, although by no means factual; I shall tell you what I know and have sometimes guessed at, but make of it what you will.
My name is Albus Severus and I am here to share with you a secret that the world has never known. This is the real story of Harry Potter and Severus Snape.”
