Wake up Call

"Nergahley."

Huh?

"Hermalley?"

"Mmph."

"Hermione, wake up."

"Mmm… Severus?"

"Good morning, sleepy head."

I rubbed my eyes and sat up.

Severus was perched on the edge of the bed, smirking at me. "Are you quite finished playing the indulgent mother?"

I frowned, still half asleep. "What?" Looking at the bedside table, I saw it was only just 8 a.m.

"You don't want to miss her first Christmas do you?" Severus reached out and tucked a stray piece of hair behind my ear. "Come on, breakfast is ready." With that, he stood up and left the room.

I smiled after him. I would hardly say wanting to sleep a little past 8 a.m. could be considered missing Christmas. It seemed he was more eager for Christmas Day than our 11 month old daughter would be. I quickly grabbed my robe and tied it around my waist.

No, I didn't want to miss out.


This fic was born from a dream drakien had, as a few fics lately have come to be conceived. And also, it's almost Christmas. We put our tree up today and it seems that no matter how many other decorations we have up, it doesn't feel like Christmas until the tree goes up. Just have to get through finals and then I have four glorious weeks off. Good luck to everyone taking finals too. Hang in there!
