Worth the Wait


Harry paced the hallway in front of the infirmary. “Will he make it, Hermione?”

“We’ll have to wait and see.” She clasped his arm. “Why are you so concerned about Snape?”

Harry blinked. “Nagini practically decapitated him!”

She sighed. “I know, but you hate him. Why are you so worried about him now?”

“I saw his memories.” Harry shook his head. “He gave up everything so I could defeat Voldemort--” He shivered. “But for him, we’d be dead and Voldemort would be destroying the Muggle world.”

Laying her head on Harry’s shoulder, Hermione exhaled. “Good point. I’ll wait with you.”


When Harry was finally allowed in to see Snape, he looked wan, paler than usual. “Potter,” he rasped.

“Hullo, sir.” Chewing his bottom lip, Harry moved closer. “How are you feeling?”

Snape raised an eyebrow. “As if I almost died.”

Harry smiled faintly. “Makes sense.”

They stared at each other for a long moment. “Why are you here, Potter?” Snape finally whispered. “Poppy says you’ve been haunting the place.”

“I wanted to see you were all right,” Harry said

“I’m alive,” Snape murmured. “I cannot claim more.”

Harry nodded. “You’ll get better.”

Snape shrugged. “We’ll have to wait and see.”


Harry visited daily. Snape accepted his presence with equanimity, although he kept shooting contemplative looks at Harry, looks that made something inside Harry tremble.

After the first few weeks, Hermione stopped questioning what he was doing. Ron’s questions persisted far longer, however. “This is just weird, mate. I know you told Ginny not to wait for you, but for her to see you visiting Snape daily and avoiding’s upsetting.”

Harry sighed. He had been avoiding her. “I know.”

“Just do something about it,” Ron advised, walking away. “I don’t want to be forced to hex my best friend.”


“You’re upset,” said Snape when Harry walked in.

Harry sighed. “Sorry to bring my problems in here. You need rest. Relaxation.”

Snape snorted. “I consider anything not involving Death Eaters or large snakes to be relaxing.”

Harry laughed, feeling better. “Well, Ron’s upset with me because of Ginny.” He blushed.

“Spending too much time with me, are you?” Snape smirked when Harry gaped.

“How’d you know?”

Snape smiled. “I’ve my moments. What’s your plan?”

Harry coughed. “To keep visiting. We’re friends, too. They’ll have to accept that, right?”

Snape inclined his head. “I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.”


“Anything you want to tell me, Harry?” Hermione looked at him expectantly.

Harry unsuccessfully tried not to blush. “What do you mean?”

She raised an eyebrow. “You’re moving Snape in with you. Usually that indicates something.”

“His house is ruined and I’ve more space than I know what to do with. It just...made sense.”

“And there’s nothing...else going on?”

Harry glanced towards Snape, who was directing the magical movers on the best places to put his boxes. “No.” Biting his lip, he looked back at Hermione. “Unfortunately.”

After a long pause, she smiled. “Don’t give up. Wait and see. Snape may yet surprise you.”


They’d lived together in Grimmauld for months, yet Harry was no closer to discovering if Snape was interested.

At least he doesn’t date, thought Harry. The only people to visit Snape were Hogwarts professors, none of whom showed any romantic inclinations.

It was Ginny’s visit, however, that brought everything to a head. “My mum told me to wait and see, Harry,” she said, tears in her eyes. “She said you’d come to your senses. But it’s been three months!”

Harry sighed. “I’d happily wait three years for him, Gin.”

“Actually,” interrupted a smooth voice. “The wait is over, Mr Potter.”


“Were you waiting for me to make the first move?” Harry asked once Ginny stormed out.

Snape sighed. “I hoped that you were interested in more than just friendship, but since that was all you spoke about, I thought I’d wait and see if anything more could result from our....association.”

“I wasn’t sure how you’d react if I told you how I felt about you,” admitted Harry.

“And how do you feel?” murmured Snape, moving closer.

Exhaling, Harry stepped into his arms. “Maybe it’s easier if I show you.”

“Show versus tell, hm?” Slowly, Severus smiled. “Very well. Proceed.”


Luckily, Harry didn’t have to show Snape too much. Rather quickly, Snape took over and several snogs later saw Snape had Harry on the sofa, entwined. “Shouldn’t we...move this...into a...bedroom?” Harry gasped in between kisses.

Pulling back, Snape stared intently at Harry. “I thought we’d wait and see how kissing went before...anything more.”

Smiling, Harry reached up, cupping Snape’s jaw in the palm of his hand. “We can if you like, but I know what I want. So, my room or yours?”

Snape smiled. “As my host, I defer to you.”

Harry’s smile deepened. “Hold on.”


They landed in the centre of Harry’s bed, naked.

“Clothing banishment during Apparation?” Snape smiled. “Very...advanced, Mr Potter.”

Leaning in, Harry kissed Snape. “While I missed my seventh year of school, I was with Hermione. I learned lots while we were on the run.”

“Indeed.” Snape’s arms surrounded Harry. “If you persist in discussing others whilst in bed with me, however, this shall be a short session.”

Harry laughed, stretching out atop Snape. “Fair enough.” Closing his eyes, he exhaled.

“What are you doing?”

“Savouring the moment.” Raising his head, Harry licked his lips. “But the wait is over.”


Snape’s eyes glittered avidly as he watched Harry stretch himself. “Do you require...assistance?

Harry shifted, guiding Snape’s cock to his hole. “No. I’ll do this.”

Snape’s hands were on Harry’s hips, steadying him as he sank slowly onto Snape’s erection. “Incredible.”

You’re the incredible one, Harry thought. “Just wait and see,” he gasped, rotating his hips. “It gets better.”


And it did. As Snape arched up to meet him, Harry started to take Snape deeper. Finally, he whimpered, “I can’t--”

With a growl, Snape sat up, dragging Harry closer to bite kisses onto his lips. “I, however, can.”


Snape was a ferocious lover. He filled Harry’s body and mind as they writhed together, yet Harry wanted more. Harry’d been aching for Snape for so long that he felt he couldn’t get enough. “More,” he gasped as Snape practically bent him in half. “Severus.”

Hearing his hame on Harry’s lips seemed to snap something inside Severus, who sped up, pounding his prostate. “Harry. Merlin--”

His fingers digging into Severus’ back, Harry arched and came. Moments later, Severus did, too, collapsing atop Harry.

Once he’d caught his breath, Harry kissed Severus’ shoulder. “Was it worth the wait?”

Severus chuckled. “Indeed.”


Hermione was beaming as she came through the Floo. Harry hugged her in greeting. “And to think you were worried about how things would turn out with Severus,” she said.

Harry blushed. “It’s worked out rather well.”

“I’ll say.” She walked with him into the hallway. “How was the honeymoon?”

Harry sighed. “Brilliant. We seriously considered moving to Spain.”

She snorted. “You’re both too English for that.”

Harry smiled. “Maybe. Maybe not.”

“Hermione,” Severus greeted Hermione.

“Severus.” She shot a mischievous look at Harry. “I hear you may be moving to Spain.”

Severus smirked. “You’ll have to wait and see.”
