A/N: READ ME! This Author's note explains what this story is going to be! :P

I'm back! I was gone for awhile. I was out of town for the holidays. But now I'm not! Yay! It's good to be sleeping in my own bed again. It's better to be showering in my own shower again. XD It's all about the priorities, folks. :P

While I was gone, the guys that I live with came up with an idea. I had been complaining that I've had a bit of writers block lately when it came to my OTP and the good fluffiness that I really want to be writing right now. So, they decided that each day, they are going to take turns writing a new word and putting it on the fridge every morning. And it is my job to write a Severus/Hermione one-shot with this prompt.

Of course, the competitor in me said "Bring it on!" So for the next two hundred (or so) days, I will be (hopefully) posting a new one shot! Today's is "home", because I finally came home again yesterday!

I don't own HP. I also don't have a beta for these one-shots.



Severus stepped softly into the front room, depositing his bag onto the couch before carefully and silently making his way up the stairs. He turned the knob to the bedroom door, slipping inside and closing the door behind him. His fingers deftly undid the many buttons of his coat. He tossed it over the back of the chair in the corner. His outer robes quickly followed, as well as his shirt and trousers. He strode over to the left side of the bed and pulled back the covers, situating himself before pulling them back up again.

The warm body that occupied the right side immediately curled against him. She rested her head against his shoulder and wrapped her arm around his middle. He pulled her close, tangling their legs together and burying his face in her many curls. She sighed.

"Welcome home, my love," she murmured.

"It's good to be back, Hermione," he answered, kissing the top of her head. "It's very good to be back."

Aww. :3 Short, but sweet. A cute little drabble to kick us off! Some of them will be little ones like this, but many will also be much longer than this. Check back in tomorrow of the next prompt and the next one-shot!

Please Review! Thanks for reading!
