Severus had not thought he would ever fall in love. That simply was not possible for one such as him. All his love was dead and gone, destroyed with the death of his child-hood friend.
And had he ever imagined love, it would never have been like this; watching a greying werewolf teach a pack of irritatingly noisy infant wolf-cubs how to play the games they had never learned growing up in the festering filth of Greyback's lair.
The sounds of laughter he heard seemed to unlock something trapped inside; sunlight gleamed like the werewolf's smile, and Severus was finally smitten.
