Invitation

~

Harry blinked. “I’m going away for how long?”

“You’re assigned to MACUSA for a month,” Robards repeated.

“Why me?”

Robards snorted. “When we surveyed your colleagues, several mentioned something about you having taught them defensive spells your fifth year?” He raised an eyebrow. “They all claim you were an excellent teacher.”

Harry coughed. “Okay—”

“The plan is to have you master the American techniques, and then teach them to everyone else when you return.” Robards handed him a thick envelope. “The assignment may be longer, but we’re starting with a month. Any other questions?”

Harry shook his head. “No, sir.”

~

“What a fabulous opportunity!” Hermione enthused.

Pensive, Harry nodded.

“You don’t seem excited, mate.” Ron leaned in. “Worried about Snape’s reaction?”

Harry sighed. “He doesn't know yet since I only just found out. But, yeah—”

“Why?” Hermione asked. “Will he be upset?”

“No. I bet he’ll be fine. It’s just…things are going great right now. Going away wasn’t in the plan.”

“There’s always the Floo.” Hermione winked.

Harry blinked. “You’re suggesting…Floo sex?”

“Oh bloody hell,” Ron groaned.

Hermione laughed. “I’m suggesting you do whatever it takes.”

Harry grinned. “Yeah, I guess there are ways to make long-distance work.”

~

Snape remained silent after Harry told him. “It’s quite the opportunity,” he finally said. “You’ll be away a month?”

“At least. Robards said it’ll be longer if things go well.”

Snape snorted. “They will. Everyone enjoys having you around.”

“Including you?” Harry murmured, clasping his hand.

“Indeed.” Snape squeezed his fingers. “I believe I prove that every night you visit.”

Sighing, Harry leaned on Snape’s shoulder. “We could apply for a secure Floo connection here—”

“No. That would draw attention to my presence.”

“I can’t manage a month without seeing you,” Harry whispered.

“Indeed.” Snape hummed. “We’ll think of something.”

~

Their lovemaking that night was subdued, but no less heartfelt, and as Harry sucked Snape’s cock, he could have sworn he felt it flex on his tongue.

Gasping, he pulled off, looking up at Snape’s face. His eyes were closed, his head thrown back, his expression…peaceful. “Did you feel that?” Harry whispered.

Snape opened his eyes. “As I’ve told you, I feel everything we do together.”

“Yeah, but—I thought…” Harry paused. Had he imagined it? Should he get Snape’s hopes up?

“What?” Snape asked.

Shifting, Harry slid up his body, kissing him. “Come away with me,” he blurted.

~

Snape froze. “You want me to go away on assignment with you?”

Harry exhaled. It’d slipped out, but the more he considered it… “Yes.” He smiled. “Consider it a holiday. I bet you haven’t taken one in ages.”

“I’ve never taken one. Even between school terms, I was either gathering information for Albus, or funneling false information to Voldemort. And after the war, I needed to support myself.”

“What about now?” Harry asked. “Could you take one now?”

“Perhaps.” Snape stroked Harry’s hair. “This is sudden. You should consider whether you truly want me along on this adventure.”

“I do.”

~

“Are you sure, Harry?” Hermione watched him pack his trunk. “This may not be the wisest move.”

Ron, perched on the end of Harry’s bed, eyed a Quidditch mag. “Are you taking this?”

Harry shook his head. “No, you can have it, mate. Meant to give it to you anyway. And yes, Hermione, I know this could be a mistake, but it doesn’t feel like one. Having Snape go away with me to New York feels…right.”

Hermione sighed. “Okay. Just…please keep in touch, yes?”

Harry nodded. “I will. And hey, maybe you two can visit.”

Ron beamed. “Brilliant.”

What? A month at least? O_o
Hm, so why should it be a mistake to take Severus with him? What would be the difference to what they have now? I mean, Harry has to work here and there so they will only see each other in the evenings - which, as far as I understood, they are doing already. So, yeah, why not follow his gut instinct? It seems to have done him good so far. :)

Also wanted to say that I love the little domestic scenes with Hermione and Ron.
