Chapter One: Beauty From Pain by Superchick

Harry sighed softly looking out upon the lake glittering under the light of the full white moon. Light touched everything giving it an ethereal glow, Harry was no different. His soft smooth moonlit skin glowed, his solemn expression beautiful and sorrowful in the light, his eyes of the most beautiful color that could shame emeralds with their intensity glowed with an inner wisdom that spoke of years more that his body had experienced, his body slender and gorgeous, and his hair appeared soft as feathers in the soft glowing light. He opened his full blood red Cupid's bow lips and began to sing from his heart unaware of the man watching just a short distance away far to enthralled to interrupt.

"The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know I'm alive but I feel like I've died
And all that's left is to accept that it's over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that i made
I try to keep warm but I just grow colder
I feel like I'm slipping away"

Harry looked up to the melancholy hanging moon as tears gathered in his enchanting eyes collecting upon his long perfect lashes and he continued to sing.

"After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today,
Someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain"

A rather sad smile stretched his lips and he gaze became slightly distant thinking of someone only he could see in his minds eye and he continued a tear slipping down his rosy soft cheeks.

"My whole world is the pain inside me
The best I can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I'll wonder why God lets me walk through this place
And though I can't understand why this happened
I know that I will when I look back someday
And see how you've brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames"

The smile became sadder still and more tears slipped from those beautiful eyes making the man's heart ache for his forbidden love and treasured beauty as young Harry clutched at his heart and continued the song in the amazing voice that would shame any siren into silence.

"After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today,
Someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain"

Harry allowed his tears to flow freely as his painfully gorgeous smile remained upon his lips and continued the words etched into his torn and bleeding heart held together by the shadow of hope to come.

"Here I am, at the end of me
Tryin to hold to what I can't see
I forgot how to hope
This night's been so long
I cling to Your promise
There will be a dawn"

Harry looked out a helpless and hopeless look causing the watching man's heart to break for him and cautiously step forward as the song continued.

"After all this has passed, i still will remain
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today,
Someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain"

Harry looked up and locked his hopeless gaze upon the man as the last words left his lips in the end of his song. The man held out a calloused hand a solemn promise on his lips.

"I will bring you hope if you will allow my love." The man said softly. For the first time in months the man saw the beginnings of hope in those ensnaring eyes and allowed himself a soft smile when Harry took his hand and allowed himself to be pulled into the man's embrace. "If you will allow me, I will love you Harry." The man vowed. Harry smiled into the man's chest melting into the warm, comforting, and protective embrace.

"I will. Please love me, as I love you Professor." Harry spoke softly into the man's chest. The man smiled pulling him back enough to gaze into his wonderful eyes slowly coming to life with hope for a better future, a future together.

"You may call me Severus, Harry." The man told him softly. Harry nodded allowing Severus to wipe away the last of his tears with gentle hands.

"Thank you Severus." Harry whispered gratefully leaning in and kissing Severus hard thin lips so lovingly in made their hearts ache with joy when Severus returned the kiss just as lovingly. Neither knew what the future would hold as they stood there embracing but they both held hope for the dawn of a new future together.
