Warning: boy/boy (Harry/Severus). Do Not Read If This Offends You! NO FLAMES!!

"It was wonderful, I tell you!" Ron exclaimed as soon as Christmas break was over and the gang were eating dinner at the Great Hall with the rest of the students.

"Maybe next time I'll go to Romania with Severus," Harry said with a smile.

"Did you get our gifts that we sent you in owl?" Hermione asked.

Harry nodded, "Severus did as well. Thank you both for the wonderful gifts," he said as Hermione beamed.

"Harry!" A voice called out as the trio looked up and saw Neville walking towards them.

"Hey Neville, how was your break?" Harry asked smiling.

"Fine, until we got the Daily Prophet," Neville said as he sat down beside him.

"What happen Neville?" Hermione asked curiously.

"Grandma went into shock when she found out that Harry Potter is with the ex-Death Eater and a teacher, nonetheless!" Neville said smirking.

"Are you serious Neville?" Ron asked surprised.

Neville nodded, "How did you kept such a secret from everyone else?" He asked as he looked at Harry.

"I got help from high places," Harry said with a smile as he looked at his friends.

"How is Snape handling this?" Hermione asked him.

Harry rolled his eyes, "His the same as always," he said.

"You do realize now that this is out on the open, Fudge will be coming out to get you any time?" Dumbledore said as he sat beside Severus at the head table.

"Do I care? Fudge can do anything that he wants but he won't separate us," he said confidently.

"I'm surprise Severus. I thought you hated Potter," Minerva said smiling to his other side.

Severus huffed, "Things changes Minerva," he muttered.

"I knew something was going on between the two of you. I just couldn't put my finger into it," Minerva said as Severus raised his eyebrow. "The way you two act whenever you are in the same room," she explained.

"I'm the same as always but Potter is the one who might be giving you signals," he said.

"Well, at least Harry is off age or else will be having serious problems if he wasn't," Dumbledore said thoughtfully.

"If he wasn't, I wouldn't be here today," Severus replied which was the truth.

"What are you going to do at the end of the year, Harry?" Hermione asked one day as the trio was walking down the corridor.

Harry sighed, "Either work at the Ministry of Magic or be a Seeker," he replied.

"You'll do fine in any other way," Ron assured him but the trio stopped where they were walking as they were looking at three Hufflepuffs students who were staring at them. One of them was staring disgustingly at Harry.

"Let's go guys," the familiar Hufflepuff said as the three stared at the other three before walking past them without even a glance.

"Wasn't that the kid who joined our D.A.? What's up with him?" Ron asked surprised.

"Some people hate me and Severus because we are both guys," Harry said slowly.

"You mean homosexuals," Hermione said as Harry nodded.

"Just ignore them then," a voice piped up from behind them.

"M-Malfoy!" Ron cried in surprised as he jumped back a bit.

Draco ignored him, "Those people just don't understand the meaning of love. But you and Severus does and that's what matters," he said.

"I guess your right," Harry said slowly.

"Of course I'm right!" Draco said with a smile, "your lover is over there, aren't you going to hug and kiss him?" He asked smirking.

"W-What?" Harry asked surprised as his face was bright red.

"Malfoy, Harry doesn't have to do that unless he wants to!" Ron exclaimed.

"What? We can't have a little show?" Draco teased.

"You owe me," Harry muttered as he begun walking up to Snape who was currently speaking to Dumbledore as the group watched.

"Well, speak of the devil," Albus said as Severs looked up and saw Harry approaching them. "Harry, we were just thinking of you," Albus began but Harry ignored him.

"Harry?" Severus asked surprised.

Harry shook his head as he tipped up and kissed Severus on the lips as a shocked Severus just stood still on the spot. Every student stopped what they were doing at that moment and just stared.

"He actually did it…" Ron said as he was also staring.

"Didn't he know that I was teasing?" Draco lied.

Harry stopped what he was doing and looked at Severus who was a bit paralyzed until he caught on what the two were doing.

"Do you know what you did Potter?" Severus asked angrily as he looked around and began barking out at the students.

Harry shrugged as he quickly walked away and rejoined his group.

"That was sly Potter, now your going to get it," Draco said smirking.

"Eh, he'll forgive me later," Harry said smiling as he knew that Severus always forgives me if it was a good cause.

"Damn Gryffindor," Draco muttered as Harry chuckled and the group resumed the rest of the day as if nothing had happened at all.
