Characters: Severus, Hermione
A/N: Unbetaed. This was my first post to the comm and now it is my first post here in my fic journal.
Disclaimer: I own nothing. No money is, was or will be made from this work of fiction. All characters belong to JK Rowling and her imagination. This is a work of fiction. All characters are of the age of consent in this fic. I just like to play in the sandbox. I promise to return them in good working condition. (mostly)
“Stop fidgeting Severus.” Hermione whispered tenderly in her husband’s ear.
“Hermione you know how much I abhor these gatherings. There are much more important things we could be doing at this very moment.”
“It’s important to remember the past Severus. You know how I feel about it. You almost died for it.”
Severus turned to look at her with a smirk firmly in place. “Almost. I forgot to mention this morning, it’s ready.”
“What?” Hermione said a little too loudly. “Why didn’t you say something before?”
Still smirking he replied, “Because I do know how you feel about your friends.”
Hermione stood abruptly, grasping Severus’ hand pulling him roughly out into the hall. “More important things indeed! You do realize what this means for us, not to mention so many other couples?”
Sensing a long lecture from his crazed wife, Severus put a loving but firm finger to her lips silencing her.
“We’ve waited so long for this a few hours means nothing if the potion is successful. We will have the rest of our lives to reap the benefits. One day spent with your, our friends will not stop the potions chore Hermione. Tonight we will explore new horizons.”
Hermione blushed at the implication of his words. Severus noted the flush of her cheeks and pulled his wife into his arms, kissing her fervently.
“Tonight the potion is ours and ours alone.”
“I can’t dare to believe it will work. So much is at stake. Ten years of research and effort and if it fails, Severus I won’t go through all of this again.”
“You won’t have to. It will work this time.” Taking her arm, Severus apparated them home.
Two blue vials waited on the cabinet beside the bed.
“Have you thought about any names yet?”

If you do read this, then let me just say Thank you for reading it at all. You will not at this point in time find my writing in any archives except this one. I write for myself as enjoyment and a creative outlet for all the daily goings on in my life. I realize that it should be beta read and if anyone would like to volunteer to beta read my fics I would be very much obliged and grateful to you, otherwise this is just my writing as you see it. I want to improve my skills as a writer but it is not my goal in life to become a writer. Writing is purely entertainment for me.
