Chapter Text

Severus coaxed Harry to bed, who slept heavily through the night.

There had been a cold snap overnight, which meant the slush that had started to melt was now solid ice.

Harry drank his coffee looking out the window to their back yard, feeling better and thinking about the papers he needed to get done this weekend. The standing water looked frozen solid, although Harry suspected that was more of an illusion than anything.

"Feeling better?" Severus asked, sitting down at the table.

"Yes, thanks," Harry replied.

"Remind me when your classes are finished," Severus prompted.

"Another ten days," Harry sighed. "And I have three more papers to finish before then." He finished his coffee and put the cup in the sink. "But I should be able to finish one today, thanks to a good night sleep."

Harry leaned into Severus for a soft kiss. "Thanks."
