Potter's room was dark. The hinges creaked as Snape pushed the door open, and he froze, waiting. Potter, a shadowy lump in the middle of the bed, didn't stir, and after a moment Snape slipped inside, closing the door behind him with a soft snick.


The lump quivered, then fell still again. Most likely, Snape thought, Potter had taken a deep breath.


A cloud shifted, and moonlight spilled into the room just as Potter exploded into motion, flinging one arm into the air as he rolled over onto his back. His face was pale and slack with sleep.

"Whozit?" he croaked, his eyes blinking slowly open.

Snape did not answer, but crossed to the bed on silent feet before Potter was able to focus.

"Ginny?" Potter whispered, and Snape dropped to the bed and crushed their lips together. Potter's mouth tasted of sneezewort and lovage as Snape's tongue swept across his palate. His skin reeked of it, an earthy fragrance spilling from every pore, more than enough to befuddle a cadre of Death Eaters, let alone one broken, lonely man. The Weasleys had tried, more than once, to break Potter of the habit, but the only one who could have succeeded was dead.

"Ginny," Potter said again, his voice stronger, more certain this time, yet still sounding as though Potter was somewhere far away. He rolled them over and draped his body on top of Snape's, rutting sluggishly against Snape's thigh. "You're back. Again."

"Yes," Snape said with a sigh, hands grazing down Potter's back to clutch at his arse.
