The shoddy flat reeked of alcohol and Harry wrinkled his nose as he slipped through the decaying wards. He felt like he'd stepped back into his godfather's house, empty bottles and despair littering the floor.

"Potter!"

Harry jumped. Snape's voice hadn't lost any power at least. He eyed the man sprawled on the couch in the most unSnapelike pose imaginable; he'd once imagined those buttons were welded closed, and could never gape open, never show a long pale throat he hadn't known existed.

Harry snatched the bottle from Snape's loose grip. "What are you doing?"

"I could ask the same of you." Snape's bloodshot eyes blinked up at him. "Breaking and entering as a career now? As I recall, you could have taken a NEWT in it in school."

"At least I'm not pissed at nine in the morning."

Snape looked at him oddly. "Pity."

Harry sighed, and crouched next to the soft, bottle dangling between his knees. He noted Snape's gaze flick down. "Mind telling me what you're doing?"

"I wasn't aware I needed a keeper." Snape's voice had gone petulant.

"Neither was I," Harry said, setting the bottle out of sight, "or I would have been here sooner."

"Always the bloody hero," Snape muttered, but he didn't object when Harry offered him a hand up.

Awwweee--sweet! Love how Snape stays prickly and spikey even he's caught with his pants down, so to speak.
