A Time for Change

Chapter 1 - Reflection

I never thought I would owe my entire life nor my son’s life to Severus Snape, especially not after what happened our fifth year. I met Severus just months before my first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; in fact he helped me make my final decision to go. Severus taught me all about his world, the magical world that I would soon enter. The world that I would eventually love and the world that would one day truly change not only my life but change the lives for everyone I loved and held dear. The one thing I do still regret about entering the wizarding world, my world, was losing my close relationship with Petunia. For ten years we had been inseparable, for ten years she had been my best friend and my rock. She never truly got over Albus Dumbledore telling her that unfortunately she could not attend Hogwarts with me.

If Severus had not convinced me how wonderful this new world was, when I got my letter I most likely would have turned down my opportunity to attend Hogwarts. If it had not been for Severus, I would have never met the wonderful friends Amelia, Alice, Remus, Sirius, and Peter. If it was not for Severus, I would have never met the one and only James Potter. I would have never hated him nor fell in love with him, and married him. It is so funny how close the lines are when it comes to hate and love. If it was not for Severus, I would have never met the most important person in my life, my son Harry.

I remember like it was yesterday, the many hours that Severus and I talked about Hogwarts before that first September 1st. I can remember playing around with that twig like it was a wand and just wishing that it wasn’t all a dream, that this was the real thing that I was really a witch.

For five years Severus and I stayed very close friends, true we never spent as much time together during school as we did on vacation. It was very difficult to spend much time with Severus during our times at school as he was a Slytherin and me a Gryffindor, and well the rivalry between the two houses are nothing but legendary. For years all my Amelia and Alice could never understand how I could be friends with Severus Snape, but they never knew me before I knew I was a witch.

I can still remember the day that Severus broke my heart. It was the last day of O.W.L.s in our fifth year, the day that James had hung Severus upside down. The day that I defended Severus, like I always did, but this time he turned on me just like Petunia. It is wasn’t like anyone had never called me a mudblood and it’s not like Severus had never called another muggleborn a mudblood. In fact I use to lecture him on how ugly that name was and how I wish he would not use it anymore. To hear him call me that name, well it was nothing but unforgivable.

That was the day that I ended my friendship with Severus Snape.
