Disclaimer: Unfortunately I do not own anything from the wonderful world of Harry Potter. I make no money from this , the only thing I get out of it is the pleasure of having Snape do what I want him to do.

A/N: This takes place during Hermione's 7th year and they have already had the war. Voldemort is dead. Severus and Dumbledore are alive. To renew the population the ministry has set a marriage law into place, forcing Snape and Hermione to marry. Please excuse the grammar and any other mistakes.

Snape and Hermione were in the dungeons, they had discarded their robes and were sitting on the side of his bed. She sat in the middle and he at the very foot, both looked rather uncomfortable. They had married a few hours ago and had until midnight to consummate the marriage or they would both end up in Azkaban.

"We can not delay this much longer Miss Granger we have half an hour until midnight," he said as he glanced over at the clock.

"You mean Mrs. Snape," she forced herself to smile.

"Yes…..so do you just want to get this over with…short and quick. I just need to …penetrate…..we don't have to….finish," he said.

"….if that's what you want. I've never …done this ….so I'll leave it up to you, " she watched her hands twitch in her lap.

'Bloody hell…she's a virgin,' he thought.

"I actually haven't done this in a long time," he admitted. Though he had no idea why.

"Are you nervous?" she asked.

"Don't be ridiculous…I'm not a teenage boy," he replied. 'then why am I feeling like one?' he asked himself.

"What about a contraceptive spell or.. potion I know we are required to have a child within two years but that's a while…I'm not ready yet."

He moved so he was sitting beside her, he took out his wand and touched her stomach without saying a word. She felt warmth spread through her body.

He put his wand away and slowly leaned toward her, he gently pressed his lips to hers. He could feel her tense up in response to his touch. 'Was she that repulsed by him?' He thought. He broke away from her.

"If you would rather, we can skip the…foreplay and just warm everything up magically," he suggested.

"I would rather …do it the natural way you know…since I've never…Unless you need to …that's fine," she said.

'Am I that unattractive?' she asked herself.

His face turn cold and angry. "I don't need to…are you implying… I'm too old to get it up," he spat angrily, as he got up from the bed.

"No…I didn't mean it that way," she stammered.

They didn't speak for a while. He stood with his back to her. Asking himself why he had went along with this. He thought he should have just went to Azkaban, it was what he deserved after all those years with Voldemort but he had done this for her, he could not stand to see someone with her potential go to Azkaban over some stupid law imposed by the ministry.

She did not move from her spot on the side of the bed. Tears started to form in her eyes.

"I just meant…if you weren't…aroused by me …..and you would feel more comfortable with magic…then that would be fine with me," she broke the silence . A tear fell down her cheek.

He looked back at her as she sat on the edge of his bed with her head hanging down. He walked back over and sat beside her, he raised her head up with a finger under her chin.

"I'm a man, you are a beautiful young woman, of course I'm aroused by you. I…just figured you wouldn't want an old ugly dungeon bat like me, touching you," he wiped away a tear and put his hand down on his leg.

She blushed a little. "Your not old….and I do find you attractive. I've just never really thought about you…that way before."

"You don't have to lie," he said uncomfortably.

"I'm not lying, you have known me for seven years I'm sure by now you can tell when I'm not telling the truth."

"Yes actually, lying is the one thing your not good at," he smirked.

"Its just a little weird, even though we are married I still see you as my professor. I only know you as Professor Snape, I know nothing about Severus. Maybe if we had more time to get to know each other before…we had to have sex."

"Indeed…but we only have 20 minutes…we will have to deal with the weird for now and start getting to know each other tomorrow."

"Ok," she nodded as he tucked a curl back behind her ear.

He put his hand behind her head and pulled her to him, meeting her halfway he pressed his lips to hers. He stopped , pulled his head back and looked in her eyes searching for something,…acceptance….attraction. He does not see repulsion so he moved to her again. This time he lightly tongued her lips asking for permission to enter. She opened, his tongue slipped into her warm mouth sliding over her tongue. His let his hand drop from her head down her neck,…arms and then glided up and down her side coming to rest on her hip.

She timidly started to move her hand up to his chest but stopped…started again…and stopped…again. He noticed this, grabbed her hand with his and placed it on his chest without breaking the kiss.

It felt good to touch him. She moved her hand up and down his chest. They stop kissing as she started to unbutton his white dress shirt…seeing the scars on his chest as she pushed it down his shoulders.

He went back to kissing her, his hands travel up to her breast fondling them over her shirt. He moved his kisses to her neck and his hand slipped up under her shirt. He heard her moan softly. When he stopped and looked her in the eyes he almost smiled but not quite. He pulled her shirt over her head and watched her blush, as her hair fell back into place.

"You can keep that on if you would feel more comfortable," he aid looking down at her black lacey bra but he gave her a lust filled look that told her he really wanted her to remove it.

Keeping eye contact, she reached behind her back and removed her bra, throwing it to the floor.

"As you can see,…" he looked down at his trousers. She followed his eyes down to his tented trousers. "…You are very arousing, Hermione,"

He looked back up at her perfect breast….. and then reached out and softly squeezed one, rubbing his thumb over her nipple. She let out a moan and bit her lip as his eyes went back to hers. She started thinking to herself how weird this was having Snape touch her and what as even weirder is that she seemed to like it.

They continue to undress until both were naked and lying on the bed next to each other. He took a nipple in his mouth and rubbed the other with his thumb. Then that hand found its way down between her legs. When he got to her outer lips he found she was already wet, he gently slipped a long finger inside her. He let a groan slip passed his lips as he thought how tight she was. He added another finger and slowly began pushing his fingers in and out as he moved his thumb over her clit.

Its was not long before he felt her walls start to tighten around his fingers and her legs quake. Her mouth opened but nothing found its way out, before he covered her mouth with his and kissed her as she reached her climax, moaning into his mouth. When she came down from her peak he started to kiss his way down her body until he was sitting between her thighs.

"You don't have to do that ," she said nervously, when she realized what he was about to do.

"I want you ready for me….I don't want to hurt you," he said then flicked his tongue over her clit.

"Oh gods!" she arched her back up off the bed. She had never felt anything like that. He ran his tongue from the bottom of her slit up to her clit stopping to suck on it.

To have THIS man in such an intimate place…who would have thought he could be so nice, gentle…this is not the man she has known for the last seven years. She started to grab his hair in her hand but stopped and grabbed the sheets instead. He slipped his tongue inside her wet heat causing her to grab a bigger fistful of sheet. He replaced his tongue with those wonderful long fingers…then looked up at her .

"Are you ready?" he asked. She nodded yes and he made his way up her body and placed himself at her entrance.

He looked down at her as he is propped up on his hands hovering above her. "It is going to hurt slightly when I break through you maidenhead."

"I know," she whispered, as she placed her hands on his back.

He pushed slowly inside her and paused as the magic switched around them to confirm the consummation. He continued to push in, inch by inch feeling her hymen stretch around him and then…. break. She made a face and a little whimper but that was all…he pushed the rest of the way in.

"Am I hurting you?" he asked, he looked down at her big brown eyes.

"No, just a little…different…weird…but good," She reassured him with a smile and opened her legs wider. He started moving slowly in and out of her tight wet heat.

"Very good," she said with a moan, as she tilted her head back.

He groaned from above her as he looked down where they were connected. He watched as he slowly disappeared inside her. When he looked back at her he found her gazing where his eyes just left. Her mouth stuck half open.

She felt his eyes back on her, looked up to meet those black eyes. For the first time she saw pleasure in his eyes, she found him extremely attractive this way. She pulled him down for a kiss, exploring his mouth with her tongue. She moved her hips up to meet his thrusts, which picked up speed. He allowed her tongue to keep exploring as it started to match his penis moving inside her.

He could not believe he was inside this witch…the little Gryffindor know it all, he was surprised at her responses to him. He had been afraid she was going to be all …clinical about everything, spilling out stuff she had read in a book about sex, she found in the self help section. He left her lips and began nipping and sucking on her neck. He took a nipple in his mouth, his teeth grazed the peak, gently biting down. The slight pain increased the pleasure. He looked down at her, watched the pleasure over take her face. He sped his thrust as she climaxed.

"Oh Severus !" she shouted as she came.

Hearing his name from her lips brought him over the edge and he spilled into her with a soft grunt. They both stayed still, out of breath. He raised up off her chest and looked into her eyes, she looked beautiful, her face flushed , hair sticking to her face, his head started down toward her lips but he stopped. He didn't know if she wanted to kiss now that the deed was done. Seeing his uncertainty she pulled him down for a deep kiss.

"Thank you, Severus," she said.

"For what?"

"For thinking about me , taking the time and making it wonderful my first time."

He looked down at her. "I'm not a monster, despite what everyone says about me. I will never intentionally hurt you," they just stared at each other for awhile, neither sure about what to say.

"I guess we should get some sleep we have classes tomorrow," she reminded him.
