Mysterious Ways


Harry was quiet when Severus got home.

Naturally, Severus sensed something was wrong. “It’s a mystery to me how Ms Weasley continues to invade our lives,” he said once Harry broke the news.

“Me, too.” Harry shook his head. “All I know is, she arrives next week.”

“And is she living here?”

Harry blinked. “Merlin, I hope not! Can you imagine?”

“No.” Severus sat beside him. “Because if they decide she is to stay here, I’d have to find my own lodgings.”

“What? No.” Harry grabbed Severus’ hand. “Not a chance. You’re not going anywhere.”

Severus smiled. “I hope not.”


“Severus,” Harry whispered after they’d made love. “Would it be so bad if Ginny found out about you?”

“You mean a second time?”

Harry laughed. “Yeah.”

She’s the one who said she couldn’t be trusted.” Severus sighed. “For what it’s worth, I believe she’s trustworthy, but she’s the one who has to decide that.”

“It’s just…I don’t think we can keep you a secret from her. You know how she gets when there’s a mystery. That’s what messed things up last time.”

Severus hummed. “You could be right. I’m still not living with her, however.”

Harry chuckled. “That’s fair.”


“Do you know the cadet coming next week?” Penelope asked Harry the next day when he reported to MACUSA.

“Yes. We’re friends. Her brother’s my best mate. She’s practically my sister.”

“So you know her very well.” Penelope smirked. “Is she cute?”

Harry laughed. “I suppose. We dated once or twice.”

Penelope’s face fell. “She likes men? Damn.”

Harry hummed. “Looking for a girlfriend?”

Penelope winked. “Always. We’ve no rules against dating within the department, but it’s not encouraged. A hot visiting Auror trainee, though…” She sighed. “Ready to solve the next mystery?”

“Absolutely,” Harry said, mind racing. “Let’s go.”


“We are placing Trainee Weasley in the same building,” Robards said when Harry Floo-called him the following day with questions. “But we’re not insisting she live with you in the same flat.”

“Right. Good.” Harry exhaled.

Robards raised an eyebrow. “Is there something I should know about your living arrangements, Potter? Some…mystery?”

“No, sir!”

“Good, because I’d hate to discover you’re doing anything unauthorised.”

Harry coughed. “I did bring a…companion, but the paperwork said—”

Robards waved a hand. “Oh, that’s fine. That’s why your living allowance’s so generous. New York’s expensive for…families. Is that all?”

“Yes, sir.”


“Well, that’s a relief, at least,” said Severus over dinner, when Harry related what Robards had told him. “I’d visions of trying to hide in our flat.”

Heart swelling at the casual way Severus referred to the flat as theirs, Harry smiled. “I know. It was a relief to me as well.”

“Any idea what day she’ll be arriving?” Severus asked.

Shrugging, Harry shook his head. “No clue. That’s still a mystery.”

“I hope she doesn’t just show up at our door one evening,” Severus murmured, sipping his wine.

“Oh, I bet we get some warning.”

Severus hummed. “We’ll see.”


“New potion?” Harry asked when Severus produced a phial containing red liquid.

“This one’s for both of us.”

“You think I need a sex potion?”

Severus laughed. “No. This one…enhances both our experiences.”

Harry licked his lips. “What should I do with it?”

“Apply it to both of us once I finish with this one,” Severus instructed, pulling out the potion with which Harry was familiar. Stroking himself, Severus closed his eyes.

“That’s working faster these days,” Harry said. “Soon you won’t need it I bet.”

“Perhaps,” said Severus, reaching for him. “That’s a mystery to solve another day.”


They kissed, writhing together, skin to skin. And, as always when Severus was involved, Harry was soon at the edge of coming.

“Wait,” Severus whispered, rolling onto his back. “Ride me.”

Straddling Severus, Harry savoured the burn of Severus’ thick cock opening him. “Godric,” he whispered.

“Gorgeous,” said Severus, eyes blazing.

Leaning down, Harry kissed him, speeding up. When he came, he pressed his face into Severus’ neck. “Brilliant.”

“Time for the enhancements,” Severus purred, rolling Harry onto his back. “Notice anything?”

“I’m still hard! How?”

“Mystery ingredient.” Severus undulated his hips, making Harry’s eyes cross. “You object?”

“Fuck, no!”


Ginny arrived the following week, and was waiting at MACUSA when Harry arrived. “Harry!” she cried, hugging him.

Stepping back, Harry looked her over. “You look great, Gin.”

She laughed. “Look who’s talking! You look years younger. Have you cracked the mystery of eternal youth or something?”

Harry grinned. “Clean living.”

“And sex,” said someone behind them. “I’m pretty sure he’s getting laid regularly.”

Spinning, they saw Penelope standing there. Ginny’s mouth dropped open. “H-hello,” she stammered.

“Hello, yourself,” murmured Penelope, stepping forward.

And as they stared into each other’s eyes, Harry exhaled. Looked like his hopes had come true.

I remembered I hadn't commented! I like this distraction for Ginny. *g* Perhaps having her there won't be soooo bad after all.

Had to snigger when I imagined Ginny living with Harry and Severus sneeking around. Poking his head out of the fridge after breakfast and asking if 'the girl' had gone to work already. Or coming out of the bath in the middle of the night, dripping water everywhere and shivering, after having hidden in the shower when Ginny needed the loo at half past three. :P
