Starting Over Title:Starting Over Character: Severus Snape Rating:PG Disclaimer:I own nothing and make no profit. Word Count:100 A/N:For snape100 prompt 444, clean slate~ Summery: Severus is not dead but paralysed. He realises no one has come to find what they think is his body, and takes the chance to escape.
It is several hours before the paralysis ends and Severus slowly starts to move his fingers. No one comes looking for what they expect to be his body, and he laughs bitterly when he finally gets to his feet. Darkness has long since fallen, and cheers tell him that Potter has done what Severus thought impossible. He wonders what sort of reception he would get if he returned, thinks of the past, the fact that he now has a future and then quietly leaves. A fresh start, far away from Hogwarts and whispers, is something Severus had only hoped for.
