gay club, or any club for that matter. This couldn’t be called his

bodily harm if the news ever got out. The Profit would’ve had a field
day with the story. But now that Voldemort was finally gone he didn’t
care what they wrote - he had his own life and he was going to live
bouncers opened the door for him. One winked at him "Have a good time
cutie." Harry tried to hide the blush that had forced its way to
his duster to the coatroom attendant and taking his ticket, he took a deep
breath and walked to the bar. Glancing at his watch Harry saw that he had
20 minutes before his friend arrived. He ordered a shot to calm his nerves
then headed to the dance floor.

driving beat, letting it drown out his problems.

Aurors that were sent to assist them. For if Voldemort conquered
Harry spun around, almost going into fighting stance, but got control of
himself before anyone noticed. Well, at least Louie didn’t seem to.

was three but who was counting. "Oh by the way, Harry I would
like you to meet…"

legs, followed by an indigo blue silk shirt that hung dangerously open to
reveal smooth pale ivory skin. Jet-black hair framed the face of….
Snape!" Harry’s mouth hung open.
sneered. "I never seem to be able to get rid of you, can I?"
Harry’s mouth shut with a snap. But he recovered enough to reply.
Snape, Voldie tried for 20 years and I still came back like a bad bean in
a box of Bertie Bott's.”

anyway. Come on lets go get a table before they're all gone. It’s a
packed house tonight,” he said proudly.

minute. Harry loved Louie to death but sometimes he just needed to
shut up. But just like the saving bell, one of the bar tenders came up and
took Louie away saying something about them being out of rum and it not
coming in on the last shipment.
Louie made his apologies and left leaving them both sitting there with an
uncomfortable silence between them. The silence built and built till Harry
couldn’t take it any more and the words just popped out.
you like to dance Professor?"
had wanted to say ‘Do you like to dance?' but it came out wrong some
how. And once the words were said, there was no way his Gryffindor courage
would let him back out.
Snape raised an elegant eyebrow. But said nothing, his smirk firmly
planted on his face as he raised his glass to his mouth. It seemed to
Harry that the confident Slytherin didn’t even consider his offer worth
answering but in reality Severus’ mind was running a mile a minute and
he was just stalling for time.
did that boy ask me that? What is he after? Did he really mean it? Well I
guess he did if the current look on his face is any judge. That boy really
needs to learn how to hide his emotions better. Well it looks like he is
waiting for an answer. I guess it wouldn’t hurt. After all, this is the
Gryffindor golden boy and none of his friends are around, so this can’t
be a prank… ~
Severus got up and headed to the dance floor, leaving one totally confused
Gryffindor behind. Severus halted right on the edge of the floor and
looked back at Harry with an impatient look on his face. Harry scrambled
to his feet and followed that leather clad body into the crowd. After a
brief moment of uncertainty, they started to dance. As the music took over
they started moving closer to each other but still never touching.

from time to time but he never stayed put for to long. As the time passed,
the dance floor got more crowded, people bumping into one another
including Harry. Sending him into Severus who deftly caught him his arms
resting on Harry’s bare shoulders sending sparks through his body. Harry
looked up sheepishly, waiting for the inevitable sarcastic comment about
how he was graceful as always or some such rot. But he saw no such malice
on Severus’ face. To the observer it would seem that Severus just had
his usual mask on his face. But then Harry looked closely he saw something
in those black eyes, a fire that wasn’t there before. Severus’ hand
gently ran down his arms but as he reached Harry’s hand, Harry
captured it, and Severus gave no objections. They didn’t discuss it, but
all the tension between them was gone. At least for tonight.

boy-who-lived. Go figure.

about people judging him. He was dancing very close to a gorgeous man,

having to justify his every move to his friends. He never wanted this
moment to end.
using the hand he was still holding spun Harry around so his back was to
Severus’ front. Harry was intoxicated by the hard body behind him.
Severus chuckled in his ear. "Someone is waving at you Mr. Potter. It
would only be polite for you to answer in kind." Harry quickly shook
off the haze enough to see Louie waving and chuckling from behind the bar.
Harry waved, blushing, which only caused Louie to laugh harder at his

hand that had been holding his all night finally did release him but only
to resettle along with its twin on his hips, pulling him roughly back
against him. Harry could feel every inch of Severus Snape. Including
several inches he didn’t expect to feel.
that velvety voice was there again.
Was he alright? Yes, yes. ~
He said softly, then, he looked into those dark eyes that were now ablaze
with desire. He made his decision then. With his trademark smile he said
louder "Never better."

concerned the outside world didn’t exist. Then, out of nowhere, hands
grabbed Harry pulling him out of Severus’ arms and up against something
huge, sweaty and reeking of beer.

so he had no way of reaching his wand and wand less magic was too erratic
to use in such a closed and crowded space. Harry began to panic. The last
person to hold him like that was his Uncle Vernon. "Well aren’t you
pretty." The man drooled.

whole body was coiled, like a snake ready to strike. The man dismissed
Severus, not even raising his head to look at him. "Go away! This
little tart and I are having a dance."
said release him now!" Harry gasped at the wave of magic that
radiated from Severus. The man was startled, but didn’t release Harry.
He instead gripped both Harry’s hands in one beefy paw, spun him around
to face Severus and pulled his wand all at the same time.

as a shield. The man nuzzled his neck. "You're not much to look at

enough with being called little. "No."

Severus caught him. Clutching him close. The man was nearly doubled over
with pain, cradling the hand that once held Harry captive.
then two bouncers showed up, taking charge of the whimpering man, dwarfing
him in the process. They must be half giants. Harry mused as he
burrowed closer to Severus.
emerged from behind them. "My friends, I am so sorry about this. Boys
get this trash out of my club!" The two bouncers dragged the still
whimpering man out of the club.
you alright Harry?" Harry nodded with a shaky smile. "Never
better. Nothing that a good bit of dancing won’t cure." Louie
nodded in understanding, but Severus had other plans.
I do believe that it would be better to get Harry away from this crowded
place to somewhere a little less noisy."
smirked at the implication before schooling his face. "Of course my
friend I have an apartment upstairs for those nights were I am here all
night and don’t get the chance to go home before I have to come in
again. It is even sound proof. My place is your place for as long as you
you. That would do fine." Louie pointed to a side door.

Harry didn’t want to go anywhere he wanted to stay and dance with
Severus some more. But before he could protest Severus was already leading
him across the floor.

wondered what he had done wrong as he was roughly pulled through the door,
into the elevator and slammed up against the wall.
objections were smothered by Severus’ lips.
kiss was rough and passionate just like the man. Harry whimpered when
Severus pulled away. "Mine. You hear me. You are mine. No one can
have you." Harry's answer was to try to kiss the man senseless in
elevator doors opened and Harry pulled them out and into the hallway still
not breaking the kiss. They slammed into the wall by the door to the
apartment. Severus reluctantly pulled away from that delicious mouth and
started to fumble with the key he was given. Growling when the door
wouldn’t open. "Alohomora" Harry said frustrated with the
delay, pushing Severus through the door and kissing him all the way in.
seeker nimble fingers were working desperately to get the few buttons open
and Severus’ shirt off. But his hands were shaking and the buttons were
so small. He growled with frustration and just ripped the shirt sending
little black buttons flying.
sound of ripping material startled Severus out of his pleasure-induced
haze. He pushed Harry away and bolted to the other end of the room.

can’t really want this."
I want you." Harry said gruffly.

Professor Binns class. I wanted you way before that behemoth grabbed

Severus up so his back was to the wall and he had no place to go. He stood
just a breaths way from the panicked potions master.

weight against the hard older body. "Grinding together." He
pushed his hips forward grinding their erections against each other. The
action caused a reluctant moan from the captured man. "You remember,
don’t you Severus." Harry started placing feather light kisses
along Severus’ neck trailing up to his ear, then, whispered.
"Don’t you." He latched onto the sensitive skin behind his
captive’s ear. That got the response Harry was looking for.
yes, ooohhh, please." Severus turned his head ashamed of his

face him "Anything."

anything under those erotic pants.

running up and down his legs, the sporadic squeezing of his arse, and the
throbbing of his cock. Then his senses overloaded, as he felt his cock
encircled by something warm and wet. He went crazy clawing at the owner of
the warmth. Trying desperately to pull it closer, to lose himself in that

lover’s enthusiasm. Harry reached up and rolled Severus’ sack as he
swallowed Severus to the hilt. Severus cried out convulsing as he came,
He looked down at the boy at his feet, staring at him with piercing green
eyes. He fell into those eyes, letting them claim him.

ever been so warm. There was no draft, and the arms around him pulled him

land of the living professor." Severus scowled and sat up mumbling
something about cheeky Gryffindor
looked down at the smiling boy currently lounging next to him. No, not a
boy, MAN, definitely a man. Severus thanked every God and Goddess he knew,
that Harry was still dressed. Albeit his shirt was hanging open
followed the long lean muscular stomach up to well-defined pecks. He
followed the line of muscles up to the boy's face. He was looking
longingly at him, his eyes flared with desire.
was that Gryffindor looking at him like that? Severus looked down. He
didn’t have a shirt on! He scrambled pulling the blanket to his chest.
How could a man, especially a gorgeous one like the-boy-who-lived look at
him like that or want to?
chest was littered with scars, both magical and man-made. Severus lowered
his head letting his hair veil his face. For he knew that all his masks
had fallen and all his emotions were showing. He was a man devoid of all
his protective barriers and now left vulnerable. He felt defeated.
he sat there and waited for the inevitable. Harry would be either,
appalled, or worse, sympathetic. Then Harry would leave, he wouldn’t
blame him. The bed shifted. His heart broke, he obviously didn’t rate
either. The pride he was desperately clinging to, left him.
then a gentle tugging at the blanket caught him off guard and it fell
away. Severus gasped as he felt lips start gently tracing one scar. A moan
tore through him when those lips followed that scar directly to his left
worried the nub with his teeth. Then soothed it with his tongueue. Severus
began to fall back into the warmth and security that the boy seemed to
radiate. But Severus couldn’t let it happen; he wouldn’t let it happen
again. He pulled loose from the
thralls of the alluring warmth, forcing himself into the cold of the room.
He fled into the bathroom, slamming the door. Leaving a very confused

thinking? Wait I wasn’t thinking that was the problem!" He pushed
himself away from the mirror disgusted with what he saw. "Maybe a
shower will get my thinking back up were it belongs."

heard the shower start. Well if you can’t beat them join them,
Harry mused, stripping as he went.
standing directly under the shower's spray, did not hear Harry enter the
room and was startled when the door to the shower opened.
"Potter what are you doing?"
you." Harry replied smirking slightly at his own joke.
I say you could join me?" Severus said, getting annoyed. Harry just
shrugged but he stayed at the opposite end of the shower. Harry observed
the cornered animal look on Severus’ face. He knelt down resting on his
heels placing his hands on his thighs.
replied dreamily "You, just you." Severus lowered his head Harry
could see he was deep in thought.
the boy really mean it? Is he truly offering what I think he is offering?
Could it work? Could we actually be …together? Well I am getting
nowhere. There is only one way I can answer these questions.
Potter." He offered him his hand and pulled him to his feet. "We
need to talk and I do believe a dryer location would be
preferable." Harry snickered at the joke as he stood.
stepped out of the shower releasing Harry as he went to retrieve towels
from a shelf. He turned to see Harry looking longingly at him. He through
a towel hitting Harry in the face, "Come on Potter we need to talk
and I will not let you distract me." He breezed by Harry, securely
wrapping a towel around his waist. Harry followed him with a sigh.
Harry entered the bedroom Severus was sitting cross-legged at the head of
the bed. Harry heaved a great sigh at the sight. "Why do we have to

call me by my first name."
conceded. "Alright, Harry… You see we both have issues we need to
flopped down on the bed. "Alright. Let's talk."
Severus nodded in agreement.
let's start with what you want from this relationship. Is this just a one
off or do you want something longer?"
rolled on to his back and closed his eyes like what he was about to say
was painful "I just want you, Severus; I don’t care for how long I
just want you. A day, a month, a year, whatever you let me have, I’ll
take." When he opened them he was greeted with the sight of endless
black eyes that for once didn’t seem emotionless but sparkled with
something he could not identify but Harry knew he liked it and would do
anything to keep it there.
gently ran a hand down Harry’s cheek. "You have me Gryffindor, you
have me." Harry launched himself at Severus but Severus skillfully
turned them so in landing, Harry was pinned beneath him. "Not so fast
my Gryffindor. I do believe that you were on top last time." And with
that he went to work proving that his mouth was good at other things
besides killing sarcasm and dulcet tones.
Harry finally came down from his euphoric high, Severus was staring at
him, smirk firmly in place. "Well Harry, finally decide to join the
land of the living I see."
ok." Harry said trying to sooth his lover.
can this be ok?" He said indicating the bruises. Harry smirked.
"Well if history runs true to form that guy will soon be checking
into the hospital with second degree burns on his hands." Severus
smirked back. "So he will be getting a painful reminder of what he
did to me."
lesson well deserved." Severus agreed, but something Harry had said
had confused him. "What did you mean ‘if history runs true to
Harry started to fidget and inch towards the edge of the bed, but Severus
grabbed him and pulled him back to him and onto his lap. Harry looked
around trying to find a way to escape.
uh Harry. You caught me when I ran, now it’s my turn. Now talk."
Harry was sulking but Severus was having none of it. He jiggled his legs
causing Harry to bounce and glare at him. But Severus just raised an
eyebrow. Harry sighed. "All right, fine. My uncle got mad at me one
day. Which is not a surprise he was always getting mad at me, for one
reason or another? But this time was different, he had not gotten a
contract he had been after and he said it was because they must have found
out that he had a freak for a nephew. I objected telling him that it
wasn’t my fault but then he grabbed me and threw me across the
room. And then before I could get up or defend myself he grabbed my wrists
pulling me up against him. I was so scared, then, it just happened."
Harry’s brows came together creating a cute little wrinkle between them,
but Severus didn’t comment on it. "All I truly remember is that he
had bad breath." Severus snickered. Harry looked up and smiled
had never seen that much hatred in his eyes before. They reminded me now
of Lucius’ during our final battle. There was blood on his mind. The
next thing I saw in them was pain. He screamed, dropped me and went
running into the bathroom, my aunt and cousin following him. He went to
the hospital that night diagnosed with second-degree burns on both the
front and back of his hands. The doctor said it seemed that he had been
burnt from the inside out. The upside was that he never touched me again
but the downside was when I went to bed that night they padlocked me into
my room I didn’t get out for two weeks. When they let me out it was only
so they could get rid of me." Severus held Harry close, squeezing him
tight as Harry snuggled deeper against him.
sorry Harry, I had no idea." Severus misjudged the boy from the
first. How could he ever make it up to him? He had been through so much.
But the man ever the Gryffindor (and for once saying it was not a put
down) just shrugged.
could you have known? Nobody really knew how bad it was. Not even Albus. I
kept it mostly to myself. I mean ‘Mione and Ron knew about the neglect
but not about the rest." Severus wondered about what rest Harry was
talking about, but figured that the man would tell him in time. So they
just sat for the longest time, Harry lost deep in memories and Severus was
just enjoying being able to hold his lover offering his comfort and
emerged from his past to realize that he was…sitting on Severus’ lap?
Yep definitely on his lap. When did that happen? Oh why didn’t he notice
this before? Oh well he noticed it now and he was going to take full
advantage of it.

the groan that followed. And he complained loudly about being removed from
easy." Severus sooths the annoyed man. "You may be 22, but I
surely am not. I was surprised I managed the second time." Harry
started to pout, but Severus was not to be swayed. "Come, lay
down" He said as he settled in. Harry continuing his pout looked
longingly at Severus’ lap. "In the morning I promise to be fully
recovered. Now will you lie down?" Harry heaved a huge sigh and laid
down, settling for snuggling as close as he could get to the welcoming
body beside him.
awoke slowly in a haze of sleep. He arched as the delicious ache of
morning after sex, the ache felt so good. It reminded him of the night
before. The feeling of a body pressed against him. Severus’ body. He
moaned at the memory. The feeling of lips on his skin. Warm breath
ghosting over his body, drifting downward towards his acing cock.
bolted upright when that dream mouth swallowed him to the hilt. He looked
down into mischievous black eyes. "Good morning Mr. Potter. I
do believe that I made you a promise last night." Harry’s eyes
rolled back so engrossed in pleasure that he didn’t even bother to scold
Severus on his use of his surname.
had to stifle a scream as Severus deep throated him, swallowing
continuously, massaging his tip in the process. It nearly blew the top off
his head when Severus began to hum. His orgasm came so fast and so hard
that he didn’t have a chance to warn his lover.
could he have done that? Be that caught up in his own pleasure not to have
known? Severus will never forgive him.’
was confused one moment he was giving his lover one heck of a good morning
blowjob complete with humming and he had hoped followed by good morning
sex. But instead Harry was whispering over and over again. "I’m
sorry. I’m sorry." Severus didn’t know what to make of it. He
took the distraught man into his arms.
what is it? What’s wrong?" The man clung to him.
sorry Severus. I should have warned you. Should have told you."
Told me what?" Severus was getting worried.
I was going to… to … So you wouldn’t have to …" Harry
couldn’t get the words out he was so embarrassed and scared about
took Severus a minute to decipher what Harry was trying to say and when he
did he couldn’t help himself he just started laughing. He laughed harder
then he had laughed in a long time. He was laughing so hard he fell back
taking Harry with him.
it was Harry’s turn to be confused. Severus wasn’t mad? Well he
didn’t sound mad. Harry pulled himself up and looked down at the still
laughing face. Nope definitely not mad. But now Harry wanted to know what
was so bloody funny. Harry never liked being laughed at.
glad you think I’m so bloody funny." Harry tried to pull away but
was stopped by two strong arms.
Severus was fighting the giggles that were still trying to break loose.
"Harry I am not laughing at you." Harry snorted. "I’m
not!" Severus said more forcefully. Finally gaining control over the
laughter. "It was just you had me so worried, wondering what I did.
And I thought I might have triggered a memory of your damned uncle. But
then when I found out you were just embarrassed about cumming so fast that
I just couldn’t help myself. I was just so relieved that I started
lowered his head, this time embarrassed for a different reason. "I
spoiled everything didn’t I?" Severus reached out hooking a finger
under Harry’s chin.
I took it as quite the compliment." Harry didn’t understand.
"My bringing you to completion so fast was a testament to my
abilities as a lover." Harry blushed, and Severus smiled again. But
this time Harry was of a mind to notice what a beautiful sight it was.

pressing against his stomach. Then it clicked he was lying directly on top
of Severus. How did he get in these most delicious positions without him

something to be said for having your most hated Potions Monster underneath

his neck. Working his way up to that delicious spot he had discovered just
the night before. Oh the sounds Severus was making, they were triggering
sparks all though Harry.

enjoying the attention of the hand mapping out his body. That hot little
mouth right where he most wanted it to be. But there was something else, a
fire starting, it was becoming something he needed more of and he just
couldn’t wait any longer.
arched up, grinding himself against Harry. Spreading himself wider. “Is
there something you need Professor?” The boy had the nerve to ask.
damn you!” He growled.
Professor. That’s 5 points from Slytherin.” Severus groaned, the fire
was becoming all consuming and if he didn’t get that dratted boy in him
soon it would be all over for him. (And Severus didn’t care if he was
being melodramatic.) In fact he didn’t care about anything other than
getting that hardness that was grinding against his prick in him.
Harry, please now.” The sentence was low and breathy. One Harry
whimpered as the delicious weight left him and he felt lost without that
mouth on him.

right through him burying itself to the hilt. Harry didn’t give him much
chance to recover latching himself back on to Severus’ neck and started

difference. All he knew was that he was flying, floating above the world.

constant pounding. Every thrust a direct assault on his prostate.

encircled his cock, moving to the rhythm of his world. It didn’t take
long for the whole experience to become too much. Severus screamed his

neck and that incredible hardness was still inside him. “I’m glad your

already abused prostate was hit with every stroke, creating fireworks
before his eyes.
hand griped him again and to his surprise he was hard again. How could it
be? He was never hard that soon after cumming. But all rational thought
flew out the window as the driving pace got impossibly faster. Severus
gave a horse cry as he climaxed for the fourth time in 24 hours. The
clamping of his muscles causing Harry to finally cum, shouting Severus’

was visibly shaking with aftershocks. “You’ll be alright. You were
wonderful. Just beautiful. All I could ask for.” Harry whispered
whatever came to his mind to calm the man, while running a hand lightly
from hairline down his lightly scared back to perfectly round arse and
over the abused opening and back.
Severus would yell at the boy for rambling but he was willing to forgive
him as long as he never stopped. The soothing sounds and that soft touch
slowly brought him down from his euphoria and lulled him into an exhausted

I didn’t give you a chance to protest.”
I wanted you to stop you would have known it.”
I was too rough.” Harry lowered his head.

searchingly, looking for any sign of regret. Seeing none, he released a
breath he didn’t even know he was holding.

accomplishment and started to stand up.

taken without any preparation. At least his lover had used lube on himself
laid down pillowing himself on his arms and spreading his legs nicely,
pulling one up to give Harry better access. That was when Severus saw the
jar of gel in Harry’s hand. “What is that?” He said with distaste.
Harry showed it to him. He smelled it. It was a generic heal-all salve.
Massed produced. Only a wizard with absolutely no potions skills would buy
such a thing. But it was one of the better ones so he let him proceed.
Making a mental note to supply him with one of his own later.

to bad. Harry whispered a spell that warmed his finger to speed the
healing of the gel.

do you think you are doing Mr. Potter?”
smirked. “Getting dressed.”

notice the look of concern when he gave a slight wince.

the morning came, their last full day together. Severus
woke to a feeling of dread.

apparate with you to Hogwarts and while you are getting ready for your
upcoming classes I will head over to my place and pack a few things and
meet you back at your rooms later.” Severus for once in his life was
speechless, mouth agape. “Un…Unless you don’t want me to move in

they would return during the winter holidays. Then they apparated together

Severus breathless with want. Then when Harry finally entered him there
was nothing Severus could say to make him speed up the long smooth
strokes. Severus had his legs wrapped around him, hands clawing at his
back. But Harry kept on.

shorter. By the time diner came all four houses were down a total of 150
points each and all the children were scurrying to get out of his way. The
teachers were swearing to never let Harry leave the school again! Or at
least without taking Severus with him!
when a large white owl flew into the great hall the whole room held it’s
breath. Severus was hesitant about taking the note. But the dratted owl
wouldn’t go away. So resigned to the situation he sighed and opened

gasped. The inside looked like it was taken out of The Arabian Knights.
Pillows covered the floor, silks and muslin flowed from the ceiling. And
standing by the fireplace was his love. Severus couldn’t breathe. He was
in deep indigo silk pajama’s that flowed around him. He closed his eyes
from the sight. It was all too much. He was dreaming. He had fallen asleep
at the head table and everyone was laughing at him. That was it, this was
a dream. And just like in a dream the second he stepped in his clothes
changed a mirror of his lover’s only in black.
then strong arms encircle him. Pulling him against a wonderfully hard
body. He melted into the embrace. By Merlin did he miss this man. “Do
you like my surprise Severus?” Severus looked into sparkling green eyes,
as he was pulled into a bruising kiss.
they finally had to separate, Severus answered. “I do indeed.” He ran
his hands up and down the muscular chest enjoying the feel.
He wasn’t the only one enjoying the sensations. “You know what I
realized while I was gone?” Severus didn’t know what to say. It
didn’t seem like the man had regrets about their relationship or at
least the scenario Harry had going wouldn’t let him think so. “I have
been neglecting my duties as a lover.” Now that Severus had not been
expecting. Harry slowly sank to his knees before him. “It is
unforgivable.” Severus didn’t know what Harry was talking about, but
if it put him on his knees before him it couldn’t be that bad. “I
haven’t had your cock in my mouth in almost two weeks. Unforgivable.”
Severus watched as the man before him slowly, teasingly, lowered his
pants. The feeling of silk brushing his straining cock was nearly mind
at me Severus.” His eyes popped open.
stop!” Potion stained hands threaded themselves through ruckus hair
pulling it almost painfully. He watched as a pink tongue swiped across his
tip, followed by a stream of cold air. He couldn’t breath. Harry leaned
in. Severus braced himself for the warmth of that glorious mouth. To his
anguish it merely brushed the tip and glided down the side placing a kiss
at the bottom. He growled pulling painfully at his lover’s hair but only
receiving a chuckle for his protest.
Severus, patience. Good things come to those who wait.” Severus glared
but loosened his grip but didn’t release his hold. He felt hot kisses
being scattered all over the base of his cock and his balls. Then, warm
moist heat engulfed his sacks, rolling them and gently tugging.

pillowed floor. He felt himself be arranged with his legs spread wide and
a pillow placed strategically under his hips.

didn’t know why he was blushing. It wasn’t like Harry hadn’t had him
in this position before, but his brain wasn’t exactly functioning
rationally. But as long as his lover stayed between his legs he didn’t
care. Then to his dismay his lover moved lower instead of higher as he

before he could truly consider it, the dexterous muscle at his entrance
left. Causing him to moan at it’s loss. He needed it back, and started
to fight to get it back. But through his pleasure educed haze he could
hear a soothing voice. “Easy Severus, easy.” A hand was soothingly
rubbing his stomach. Then he felt it. A slick finger circling his
entrance. He sighed, and shifted spreading his legs wider in what he
hopped was a subtle hint.
Severus you are so gorgeous spread out before me.” Severus moaned and
writhed as another finger was added stretching him deliciously. “So
inviting, begging me to plunge into you.” Severus arched nearly
splitting himself in half as those fingers massaged an explosive part of
him. “Do you want me Sev?” He writhed in response. “Hmmm… Do you
want me Severus? You have to tell me or I won’t know what you want.”
Severus was sure that if he had his wits about him he would have been

gladly complied. Pounding his lover for all he was worth. Each stroke
faster and harder than the last.
their intense climax Harry reluctantly rolled off of his lover and smiled
down at him. He saw the face of a well shagged man. Harry couldn’t
resist, “So you missed me ha?” Severus glared at the smug man then
through himself on top of Harry knocking him back down before snuggling in
for a well deserved nap.

that we won’t be available tonight. So we can stay here for a while but
I am not spending the entire night here!” Harry looked down to the man
on his chest. “Severus?” Nothing. “Severus?” Damn it the man was
already asleep. Oh well, can’t beat them, join them.”

birthday present for Severus.

no it was Minerva who mentioned it. He felt like such a heel for not
knowing when it was. ~
informed him that Severus probably figured that the less time Harry had to
look for a gift the less expensive it would be. Harry
made a vow then and there, that he would find the most perfect present and
he didn’t give a DAMN how much it cost.

yell. “HARRY POTTER!!” Harry cringed.

didn’t slip away.
entered the shop and headed strait for the nearest waitress. He turned on
the charm really pouring it on thick. Telling her that he really needed
the most secluded spot in the place. She smiled understandingly at him and
nodded, leading them to a small room in the back. She took his order for
tea and left. Hermione and Ron sat down hesitantly. Now not sure they
wanted to know but the Gryffindor in them not letting them back down.
stared into the cup of tea that popped in front of him. He sighed and
picked it up, hoping that somehow it would give him the strength to get
through this conversation.
Well…” He looked up and he saw not the Spanish inquisition but his two
best friends who were always there for him.
He could do this. He was not ashamed and they deserved to know. ~

your guy?” Harry nodded. “So
why haven’t you brought the bloke by for a visit?”
you see Ron as it turned out that wasn’t the first time I’ve met this
you knew him before.” Harry nodded again. Man his tea cup was
interesting. “Did you meet him during the war?”
I knew him before that, but we did work together during the war, quite
closely in fact.”
you two um…” Harry shook his head.
Ron definitely not. When we worked together it was just business, not even
looked confused. “So if you didn’t like each other before, why are you
dating him now?”
started to say something but then stopped and reconsidered. “Truthfully,
I think that once we realized that we didn’t have to hate each other and
that it was ok for us to be ourselves. It just fell into place.” Harry
smiled, as he thought about those first few days. “We spent the whole
vacation together. Louie even gave us the use of the apartment over his
club” He couldn’t help the wistful look that clamed his face. “We
spent the days exploring the city, then we danced every night away, it was
just…Heaven.” Harry took a sip of his tea. “Then when it finally
ended neither of us could stand the thought of being without the other. So
we just decided that I should move into his dungeons.” Harry watched his
friends eyes widen.
Harry!” Ron shouted, for once, figuring out something before his wife.
Ron it’s true.” Ron’s head was shaking so hard Harry was afraid that
it was going to come off. “I am in love with Severus Snape!” A
crashing sound echoed through the room as Hermione’s cup hit the table.
you said that it was just a school boy crush. You said you were over him

shrugged. “That’s what I thought. Then I saw him in the club and we
just clicked. And he… he saved me.”
caught Hermione’s attention. “Saved you from what?”
blushed. “We were dancing when this ogre grabbed me and tried to force
me to dance with him. Severus saved me from him, took care of me.”
this is just a grateful thing?” Ron looked hopeful.
I care for him like no other. He is the love of my life.” Harry sighed
at his friends faces. He closed his eyes to wait for the explosion, but it
didn’t come. He opened his eyes at Hermione’s sigh, just in time to
see a meaningful look pass between the couple.
Harry, this is your choice, your life.” Harry looked at Ron who just
looked resigned. “You will bring him over for dinner tomorrow.”
Hermione’s voice was firm, reminiscent of another Mrs. Weasley.

look didn’t change as she stood wagging her finger in his face. “Fine,
you will bring him for lunch on Saturday. No excuses Harry Potter!”
Harry smile covered his entire face. He really had great friends. She gave
him a fierce hug before she stormed out of the café. Ron gave him a
hesitant smile and gave his shoulder a reassuring squeeze before heading
out after his wife.
dropped his head to the table with a resounding thud. Focusing on trying
to get his breathing back to normal. Harry looked up as he felt someone
set a glass by his hand. It was that waitress again with a shot of scotch
which Harry downed gratefully. Harry left the café, but not before
praising the girl as the greatest witch in the world. Causing her to blush
furiously as she shooed he out the door.
was nearly five hours later before Harry returned to Hogwarts with what he
found to be the perfect gift for Severus. Not to mention a few smaller
gifts, like chocolate and the like. But nothing that even remotely comes
close to the main gift.

stack of scrolls. His lover smirked at him over the lot. “Have a nice
glared, “You great bat! You should have told me your birthday was coming
up!” The man just chuckled unrepentant. But then became worried at the
look on his lovers face. It was just evil. “Oh by the way,” His lover
said sweetly. “Guess who I ran into today? Ron and Hermione.”
Severus’ face was unreadable but Harry carried on. “They want us to
come over for dinner tomorrow night.” Severus sputtered. Like hell he
was going to spend his birthday with a couple of Weasley’s even if one
was only by marriage! Harry couldn’t contain his laughter any more. He
was laughing so hard he fell onto the couch. Severus looked indignant.
a few moments Harry got his laughter under control. “Relax Sev, I told
them it was your birthday and we had plans.” Severus looked relieved.
“So they made me promise we would go over for lunch on Saturday.”

awoke to the unmistakable feeling of his lover between his legs. “Happy
Birthday my love.” Severus just writhed in response. Harry basked in
knowing that he could reduce the normally articulate man speechless.
Severus clawed the sheets, clenching his fists as he felt the pressure
was overwhelmed by the sensations. And just when he thought he couldn’t
take any more the explosion hit, rocking him to his core. He opened his
eyes as he felt Harry climbing up his body. He really wanted to glare at
the self assured look on Harry’s face, he really did, but he was to

the last fork full of chocolate tort Severus moaned closing his eyes with
bliss. “Hey you’re only supposed to make that sound for me!” Severus
laughed at the fake pout. “Just for that I don’t know if I should give
you your presents.” Severus shrugged in fayed nonchalance. Then Harry
bolted out of his chair grabbing him and dragged him over to the couch.
With a wave of his wand Harry revealed four packages.
had the man had time to get him not just one but four presents? ~
picked up one box, offering it to him. Taking the top off the box to
reveal … chocolate? He looked at it warily. “These don’t turn you
into anything do they?” Harry just picked one up and offered it to him.
closed his eyes to better saver the sensation. Only opening them to
protest the sweet heaven from being put away. Harry laughed handing him
one more before putting it out of reach.
next package he picked up was heavier then it looked. Severus raised an
eyebrow at Harry’s shit eating grin. “Um this is a present that is
more for me than for you but I couldn’t resist.” Severus knowing the
anticipation was killing the younger man slowly peeled off the paper one
section at a time. Fending off all attempts to make him go faster. When he
finally got to the white box beneath his companion was about ready to
strangle him. He slowly shook off the lid to reveal…”Leather PANTS!”
Severus shook them out giving his lover an incredulous look. “Potter
what about me gave you the idea that I require leather pants in my
wardrobe?” Harry still had that unrepentant look to him.
I said Sev, these are more for me then for you. I know that the ones you
were wearing in
nodded. “Oh yes, whenever you wear them you can make me do anything for
you as long as I get to see you in them while I do it.”
that so. Hmmm.” He considers the pants. “They might have some
redeeming qualities after all.” Severus began to fold them and place
them in their box ignoring the look of disappointment being directed at
him. “I might be persuaded to wear them on occasion.”
then reached for another package only to have it snatched away from him,
and another passed to him. Severus glared at the package Harry was
cradling but gave up and went to open the other one.
gasped as he pulled out new potions robes with what seemed to be an
unlimited about of protection and preventative spells on them. These were
priceless for a Poisons Master. They were pricey. That’s why Severus
only had the one set. But Harry had bought him two, both black but each
had different embroidery on it, one in silver and the other in green.
Severus just stared at them. Harry hugged him tightly with one arm pulling
him close. Severus stood to hang them up with reverence, smoothing out the
nonexistent wrinkles. He then reluctantly returned to the couch eyes never
leaving his prize.
only the kiss Harry place a kiss on his cheek drew his attention away.
Harry knew that his love was speechless so he just placed the remaining
package on his lap.

peered over the edge of the box to see... A kitten?
pulled it out by its scruff, looking at it with a critical eye. “It is
scrawny, and undersized.” Harry just sat back and smiled as the kitten
swatted at his lovers nose not minding being dangled from his new owners
fingers. “I guess I can put up with you as long as you behave and do not
destroy my stuff.” The kitten looked undisturbed by Severus’ gruff
pronouncement, reaching out and licking his nose. Severus, to Harry’s
surprise, leaned back on him, stretching out on the couch. It was the most
relaxed he had seen Severus, outside of the bedroom. Severus laid the
purring kitten on his chest.
looked down at him lovingly. “Did you have a nice birthday love?”
Severus nodded tipping his head up for a kiss which Harry lovingly
spent the rest of the night cuddling quietly before the fire. The only
time that the silence was broken was when Severus named their new addition
Black. Even after Harry tactfully pointed out that Black was a grey tiger.
But Severus shrugged it off, and snuggled closer. So Black it was.

he owed him BIG! Which wasn’t helping Harry’s panicked state.

out of the dungeons. Then Severus stopped, claiming that he had forgotten
something and would meet him at the apparition point.
only had to wait a few minutes before he saw Severus coming towards him.
But Harry couldn’t see anything in his hands.
could he have forgotten? ~
“Sev? What...?” Then Harry saw it, Black’s little head popping
out of Severus’ pocket. Harry laughed but knew better then to comment,
especially with the glare that was directed his way.

out of the house with plates and trays of food.
laughed, “’Mione there is only four of us not the whole of Gryffindor.”
She set down the plates in her hand and ran to hug her friend. Pulling
back from him she spotted the taller man. “Professor Snape welcome to
our home.” She smiled at him.
Mrs. Weasley, Severus.” He bent bowing over her hand to brush a kiss
over the back of it. Harry smirked at Hermione’s blush. Severus was
really poring on the charm.

cold.” They all took a seat around the table.
conversation flowed freely and happily as did the wine. But Harry could
tell that Severus was still uneasy in the presents of his former students.
But Harry knew that this is just their first meeting as equals so he
shouldn’t expect miracles. Hermione went to get desert as he Ron and
Severus talked about the Ministry’s overhaul.
gasped when he saw Hermione coming out of the house. For in her arms was a
large birthday cake. To say Severus was surprised would have been a
massive understatement. But when Hermione and Harry started singing
‘Happy Birthday’ he started blushing. It was just a faint coloring on
his cheeks but it was there. Harry bound up calling back over his shoulder
on his way into the house that he would get the plates and for Hermione to
start cutting the cake.

speech he said “You didn’t have to do this. I know I am not your
favorite person, but I understand that you’re doing this for Harry.”

Ron supplied. Severus smirked and nodded.
then Harry came out the door. Severus suspected that he had been waiting
until they had came to an understanding.
What is that!!” Ron was pointing down to the bottom of Severus’ robes.
He looked down.
Mr. Weasley is a birthday present, other wise known as a kitten.”
Severus said not even looking up from his desert.

cat. Trying to wrap his mind around the fact that his most hated professor
was carrying a cute kitten in his pocket. “What’s it’s name?”
gave him a look that said ‘What do you think I would name a pet?’
Hermione and Harry looked at each other, then were all rolling around on
the ground shaking with laughter. Severus’ only reaction was to raise an
eyebrow and cut himself another piece of cake.
that night Harry climbed into bed smiling uncontrollably at his lover, who
was ignoring the “idiotic” grin and buried his nose back in his book.
“This was a great day.” He sighed cuddling up to the taller man.
Severus grunted his agreement but didn’t look up. “You know we’re
going to get a howler tomorrow from Molly demanding that I bring you over

Harry said nonchalantly.

pleadingly at his lover.
nodded much to Severus’ dismay. “There are two types of people that
get invited to the Weasley family Christmas celebrations.” Severus
looked at him questionably. “People who are adopted family or people who
are going to marry family.”

he saw it, a little box clutched desperately in Harry’s hand. “Severus
Octavian Snape, you are my life and my heart. I want you mind, body and
soul. Will you do me the honor of becoming my Husband?” He opened the
box to reveal a beautiful antique ring.

notice that his hand was shaking uncontrollably.

that a yes? Sev?”

body. A hand held his head tightly as a pair of lips appeared by his ear
to whisper. “Yes Harry. Oh yes. Forever yes.” The velvet voice cracked

Severus’ response was just to hold him tighter. “Severus I need to be

his fiancé over, straddling the laughing man. Severus folded his arms
behind his head. Looking up lovingly at the smiling man above him.

as long as they were together they could handle anything.
