Summary: While Hermione, seeing her marriage is at a dead-end, moves back to her parents with Rose and Hugo, Snape finds he is no longer alone in his apothecary in Knockturn Alley - her name is Ophelia and she's four. And Ophelia's his.

Like other works from this author, there are grammar and spelling mistakes and vanished scene separators.

But also, as in "Acquittal", there is a lovely slow-growing friendship which turns into romance.

What is most delightful, though, isn't actually Hermione's relationship with Snape, but Snape's relationship with his daughter Ophelia. Bit by bit, moment by moment, breath by breath, Ophelia and Snape travel from fear and bitterness to the point where each of them is the absolute number one person in the other's life. It is wonderful to see. And everything else flows from that.
