Honoured Information

~

“You saw Snape again,” said Hermione.

Harry looked up from lunch. “How’d you know?”

Ron laughed. “It’s her super power, remember? So, how’d it go?”

Harry shrugged. “We talked.”

Hermione nodded. “About?”

“Stuff.”

Ron rolled his eyes. “That tells us a lot.”

Harry sighed. “The war, my mum, you know— Stuff.”

Hermione raised an eyebrow. “So why don’t you seem happy about it?”

“It was…eye-opening,” Harry said. “In fact, I found out he’s—”

“What?” Ron leaned forward.

“I’m not sure I should say,” Harry muttered. “He honoured me with private information, after all.”

“Ah.” Hermione hummed. “So…he’s gay?”

~

Harry gaped. “How—?”

Ron coughed. “Remember what I said? It’s what she does!”

Hermione smiled. “There’re not many things you’d hesitate to tell us, Harry.”

“Why do I even bother to try to keep things from you?” Harry asked.

“No idea.” Hermione grinned as he glared at her. “So? Did you tell him you’re gay, too?”

“No.” Harry groaned. “It wasn’t the right time.”

Ron shook his head. “Bloke gives you an opening like that, you should take it.” He shuddered. “Even if it is Snape.”

“Ignore Ron,” Hermione said. “When the time’s right, you’ll honour Snape with that information.”

~

“Speaking of honouring him,” Harry continued after a moment. “I’ve been thinking. We need to clear his name.”

“His name’s already clear,” Hermione said. “He wasn’t charged with anything, remember?”

“That’s only because everyone presumed him dead,” Harry said. “If he came forward now, someone would want to prosecute him.”

Ron nodded. “I can see that.”

“But he was awarded an Order of Merlin,” Hermione said. “Surely that’s enough to show he was on our side?”

“This is the wizarding world we’re talking about, Hermione,” Harry reminded her. “It’s not as if logic always enters into it.”

She sighed. “Point.”

~

“So what do you have in mind?” Ron asked.

“No idea.” Harry shook his head. “If we reopen his case now it’ll seem weird, and someone’s bound to ask why.”

“So?” Ron shrugged. “You’re Harry bleeding Potter. You can do whatever you like.”

“He has to do this the right way, Ron.” Hermione gave him a look. “Think about it.”

Ron’s eyes locked with hers. “Oh, right! Okay.”

“What?” Looking back and forth between them, Harry frowned.

Hermione hummed. “We’ll think of something, Harry. We know how important this is to you.”

Harry scowled. He hated when they did that.

~

“I told you,” Snape said. “I can never return.”

“But you’re a wizard. It’s your world.” Harry sighed. “You must miss it.”

“Of course I do.” Snape’s hands never faltered in his stirring. “But I also enjoy my freedom.”

“But—”

“Potter.” Snape looked up, pinning Harry with his gaze. “Please. Honour my decision. I wish to stay away from the wizarding world.”

Slowly, Harry nodded. “Okay. I’ll stop pushing. But if you ever change your mind—”

Snape’s lips quirked up. “I’ll be sure to mention it. Now, was there another reason you stopped by?”

Harry smiled. “Dinner?”

“As you wish.”

Hm, I wonder what Hermione and Ron are up to. They seem to be plotting something... Ah, I guess I have to be patient and wait how things develop. :)

Thank you for your story, dear alisanne! ^^

(Realized I was behind when I read the latest one.)

I love it when Ron and Hermione are supportive friends! As it should be. And yes, no doubt Harry will tell Severus when the time is right. *g*
