Once the carolers were dispatched, Harry returned to the interrupted house tour.
"This is my room," he said.
It was surprisingly warm and understated.
"Did you do this yourself?" Severus asked.
Harry laughed. "Merlin, no! Hermione and Luna took over before I could even mess it up. I certainly wouldn't have a dozen pillows."
"It looks... comfortable," Severus admitted.
"It's a great mattress," Harry replied. "It's charmed to be just the right temp and it's very inviting. Although I don't know why they insisted on a king size bed, since it's only me."
Severus thought that sounded a bit lonely.
