THE GODSON IN LAW
The Next morning
Harry woke up feeling kind of groggy, which Severus immediately noticed.
"I do believe it's time for you to go to the hospital wing, you must find out what you are contaminated with, at least for my sake, you know how I worry about you."
"Are you saying that I'm worrying unjustly? Because I'm simply not the type, as you well know." and Harry did in fact know.
"No you aren't the type, but I'm the exception to every rule."
"Not to the rule where I spank you for disobeying me."
"In that case I'm defiantly not going to the hospital wing." Harry said with a very sensual look on his face. Severus merely glared at Harry.
"Harry you are ill and have been for days."
"It's just some sort of bug it will be gone in a day or two."
"Harry you realize what a dangerous line of work potions brewing is do you not."
"Of course I do what dose that have to do with anything?"
"Well if while I'm making one of my more dangerous, highly fatal potions and I can't concentrate; do to your illness, well…"
"Alright, I'll go, only for your well being." Harry muttered know that he was expertly manipulated. And Severus only manipulated him when it was serious. Of course Harry didn't really plan on going to the hospital wing, he already knew what was 'wrong' with him. Now all he had to do was tell Severus, and he had no idea how Severus would take it, as they never talked about this sort of thing. Although if they had it probably wouldn't have happened, so Harry thought that that was the upside. 'The staff' wasn't wrong when they said that life was full of beginnings, but Harry wasn't sure if he was ready for a new beginning, not one to this caliber anyway.
Harry sighed, and decided that heading to breakfast early would be a good idea. He could figure out how to tell Sev better if he had a full stomach, he hoped. He wasn't really ready to tell Severus yet but Hogwarts walls have ears like you wouldn't believe, in Harry's opinion it would be five days tops before his news was all over the media. To Harry's delight potions was his first class of the day their, were only a few people in the Great Hall. Which meant this would be as close as alone until the day was over, and boy was he counting the seconds down, until he could be in his lover's strong arms.
"So Harry what's it like being married to Snape?" Seamus asked Harry trying and failing to hold a snicker.
"Don't ask questions you don't want the answers to." He shot back with a smirk.
"Ewe." replied both Seamus and Neville
"You know Seamus your one of the last people I'd expect to be close minded."
"Theirs a difference between being gay and dating your ugly, greasy, Potions Master."
"Hey, he is not ugly, and there is no -"
"So Harry what's it like being married to Professor Snape?" Dean Thomas asked as he sat next to his boyfriend, not caring in the slightest that he was interrupting their conversation.
"It's great on both counts. But I can't really go into details, I promised not to ruin his reputation."
"As being a creep?" Seamus asked in voice as disbelieving as Deans.
"He likes having a reputation for being a mean git?"
"So how's the sex?" Seamus and Neville nearly choked to death when dean asked, but he was as surprised that asked as everyone else. It was like the question just popped out, of his mouth.
"Your seriously want to know?"
"Yeah." he replied as though he was asked if he was really 17.
"Ok-" Harry said cautiously
"It was just, alright? I'm not really surprised, I mean he's like 65."
"I was saying ok, I'd answer the question."
"Oh, sorry, please continue."
"It's absolutely amazing!" Harry said getting lost in a flashback of the honeymoon
"Well give us some details; we are your dorm mates after all."
"Ok on the honeymoon we made love 42 times in 5 different positions, over the course of two weeks." Harry said grinning widely. After his statement he heard a variety of swear words, all
All the way from blimey to bugger. This only made him grin harder. Dean looked at Harry in total Awe, while Seamus looked totally grossed out.
"Hey Ron, Hermione."
"Hey." they replied
'About time the mail got here." ton stated while Harry was writing something.
"Harry you have got two howlers!" Hermione said in a worried tone. But before Harry had the chance to look up both letters erupted into flames, yelling things like 'perversions' and 'brainwashed' 'too good for such a lowly form of wizard'. When the howlers that had been sent to Harry had finely stopped, more shouting erupted from the teachers table, right in front of Severus. Unfortunately for Severus the letters opened just moments apart instead of altogether which would have neutralized all of the potions and acids. Their were over thirty letters, for everyone that Albus vanished there were two in its place.
"Bloody hell did you see all of those Howlers?" But Harry had already left Ron's' side, to tend to his injured husband. After about twenty minutes Harry came back declaring that Severus would indeed be fine, after some rest. It seems that one of the letters contained acid that could only be preformed by dark magic, but other than the acid Severus only suffered from small cuts.
"He has to act all grown up now that he's married." Everyone was talking about the howlers this morning till Severus and Harry walked though the door of the potions lab. It went so silent that you could hear a pin drop.
"Sit." Severus commanded to Harry
"Yes sir." Harry said not being about to hold in a small smile. He took a seat between Hermione and Ron. Hermione Ron, dean, Seamus and Harry were the only ones that made it to newt classes. Though some miracle Gryffindor managed to not loose any points, and at the passing periods everyone was talking and gossiping about what happened during potions. And as usual Harry sat at the Gryffindor table with his friends, whom he was speaking quite animatedly with when Colin crevy came and sat across from Harry.
"Harry, since you're married to Snape, I mean Professor Snape how come you don't like to sit with him during meals?"
"Colin it's not that I don't like to sit with him. It's just that I like to spend time with my friends, just because I'm married it doesn't change who I am."
"Are their marital problems? It's ok you can be honest with me."
Colin asked sadly.
"NO!" Harry exclaimed
"Well don't" Ron exclaimed loudly to his annoying underclassmen.
"The last thing we need it you opening your big mouth and jinxing their marriage." he said shooting some dirty looks that would challenge some of Severus' worst glares.
"Since when did you start caring so much?"
"Since I realized how miserable you are without him. This war is a big deal, and he can be their for you in ways that we can't. I love you mate and I'll do whatever I can to see you happy."
"I forgot my transfiguration book; I'll be back before you can say Quidditch finals."
"Yeah yeah hurry up mate, we'll meet you there." Ron said grinning at Harry while he watched him scramble away towards the dorms
"Shouldn't you be in class?" Severus asked with a raised eyebrow
"I forgot my book." Harry said with a suggestive smile.
"Then I suggest you get to class." Severus said trying to scowl at his husband however he was failing miserably
"Yes sir," with those as his last words he continued his run to transfiguration.
"Sorry I'm late I forgot my book." Harry said slight panting as he walked to his desk
"Five points from Gryffindor for your tardy Mr. Potter."
"Yes, professor." as they were leaving Ron asked Harry what had taken him so long for him to get to class, and Harry replied,
"I ran into Severus."
"Harry, you can't skive off classes to snogg, husband or not." Hermione reprimanded.
"We weren't, he just asked me why I wasn't in class yet."
"Then why were you panting when you entered the lesson?"
"Because I was running in an attempt to make it to class on time, but as you can see it didn't work very well."
"Insufferable men." Hermione mumbled under her breath.
"Oh I'm sorry Harry."
"It's alright 'Monie."
"Besides I know that we can't do stuff like that anymore now that were married, things are just different. I mean what I do will affect his image and his career.
"That sucks!" Ron said trying to sound comforting.
"Yeah well I knew it would be that way before I married him. And it didn't make me want to marry him any less. When you have someone that you love as much as love Severus things like that just don't matter. As much as I want to be with him every minute and can't I'm ok with it because he's worth the wait. And snogging in places where others can see lessens it. Dose that make since to you guys?"
"Merlin Harry that a lot of pressure."
"I'm with Ron on this one. As amazing as that sounds I don't think I could deal with that kind of pressure."
"I'm used to pressure in fact Severus makes me feel like were the only ones around, he makes all of the pressure and tension in my body disappear." Harry said fondly thinking of his husband.
"Where's Harry?" Ron ask 'Monie
"Hey sorry I'm late." Harry said breathing heavily, looking very flushed.
"Where were you off to, I was worried" Ron asked only to get elbowed by 'Monie in the ribs. She then proceeded to give him her 'get a clue' look. After Ron had returned to his normal color he turned to Harry then to Hermione then back before he chose to sit down. Harry opened his mouth to say something but he could think of nothing to say without embarrassing himself.
"Come on were late for dinner. And theirs no way I'm going to do well at Quidditch practice if I don't eat."
"Heaven forbid that you stop thinking about food for five minutes."
"You're just jealous because if you tried to eat as much as I did in one day you would be the size of hippogriff." Hermione smiled at Ron trying to shoot a glare at him, but his funny faces but a halt to what little anger she had towards him for that comment.
"I thought we were going to dinner."
"I'm with Harry. Merlin I'm so hungry I could eat a hippogriff." before he even finished that sentence Hermione punched him in the arm as hard as she could.
"Oh sure 'Monie just what I needed a new bruise." Ron said playfully. Harry couldn't help but roll his eyes, if they didn't kill each other they'd get married.
As they walked to the walked to the Gryffindor table, Severus was walking to the teachers table. Sev glanced at Harry and threw him a quick smirk, before seating himself.
"Tuck in." Harry folded a letter into an origami bird and cast a floating spell over it, telling it to go to Severus. After Severus read it he did everything humanly possible to keep a neutral expression, but he finally gave in putting his napkin over his mouth, before a rose from the table glancing at his husband, the look on his face was totally illegible, even to Harry then he swept out of the great hall.
"What did you put in that letter?" asked Ron "or do I not want to know."
"You don't want to know."
Well that's the last chapter of this story stay tuned for the sequel where we will find out what was wrong with Harry(as if you haven't figured it out), what was in the note, and how Severus will act to it all. It I get enough reviews reminding me to start the sequal I'll start it in a week or so.
