The silent girl that returned was not the same as the one who had left, any idiot could see that and Severus Snape was no idiot.
(Any NonCon is NOT SS/HG)
It started off with a kick...how did it end up like this ? Post DH.
Hermione fights for a potions apprenticeship from Snape , as they both try to find their place in the world post the Dark Lord.
But what is wrong with Hermione ? How will she cope with what's to come ? And will Severus be there for her?
