Is the survival blessing or the curse for Severus Snape?
Darkness again. He is almost grateful for it. His body still hurts, but it is different kind of pain, one that runs through his veins like liquid fire. Is there no respite for him? Not even after his death? He paid his dues, he died for the brat. Isn't it the time that he is forgiven? To give him just a little bit of rest? If he is alive he would beg, he would scream, he would plead for just a moment of rest, pride be damned.
WARNING: Not for the faint of heart, the story has really DISTURBING MOMENTS, ABUSE, TORTURE,...
