Challenge: Things you hide from me
Characters: Hermione, Severus
You wake screaming my name, clenching my hand tightly. Your dark eyes stare at nothing, desperate. It has been twenty years since the war and still you are not free.
You look at me. I see a thousand memories in your eyes, a million regrets; a desire to make right what cannot be made right. I kiss your hand. You turn away.
You tense, waiting for me to ask about it.
“Tea,” I say. You kiss me, relieved, and leave. You are not yet ready to let me into the darkness.
So I will wait for you.
