"I can't do this anymore, Severus."

"What do you mean?"

"This. This never knowing if you're 100% with me in this relationship. I can't."

"Hermione...how can you not know?"

"How can I not know? You've never told me. I need more from you Severus. Merlin knows I love you. I love your mind. I love your body. And I love your soul. I just wish you'd let me in. I just...I just..."

"You what?"

"I just don't know if you love me."

"Hermione."

"Don't touch me. Once you touch me I won't pack up. I won't go."

"Wait then. My whole life I've been waiting for the right time to share something like this. And I apologize if I haven't told you how I feel. To tell you how I need you. How I'm so lost without you."

"So what are you going to do? Tell me. Please Severus."

"I want you to know that I need you here with me. I'd be lost be lost without you. I love you. And I know this love is real. It just confuses me."

"How?"

"Since you came along everything has been alright. Fantastic. And I'm.."

"Yes?"

"I'm afraid if let the world know how much I love you that you'll disappear."

"I would never disappear. You're part of me as much as I'm part of you."

"Before you….I had nowhere to run to. Nothing to hold on to. I came so close to giving up. But then you came along. So please change your mind. Don't leave tonight. I'm not scared anymore. I love you Hermione."

"I love you too Severus."

"I'm sorry for anything that I made you feel before. Any insecurity's or any doubt. I don't plan on ever letting you go. Stay, please?"

"Severus..I…"

"I want to marry you."

"What?"

"You heard me. I want to marry you. I want children with you. I want to grow old with you. I want all of you."

"You want all those things?"

"Only with you. So will you stay?"

"Yes. I'll stay. I'll stay with you Severus…. Are you going to kiss me now?"

"My pleasure."

"So was that a marriage proposal?"

"Yes. Do you accept?"

"Always."

"Merry Christmas Hermione."

"Merry Christmas Severus."
