Before Severus could speak, the doorbell rang.
"Excuse me!" Harry said.
Severus hovered as Harry opened the door.
A woman wearing the most hideous holiday jumper he had ever seen stood in the doorway. That was saying a lot, considering he personally knew Albus Dumbldore!
"Mr Potter! I just wanted to check that you were joining us for our cookie exchange on Thursday!" The woman beamed at Harry.
"I... may have plans..." Harry said weakly.
The woman glanced up at Severus. "If that's your boyfriend, do bring him along!"
"Six dozen cookies, eight o'clock sharp!" She waved and left.
