Harry smiled the moment his toes curled into sand. He looked up and took a deep breath. First time on a beach since the war; there was something in his mind screaming at him to get out, to get away, but he focused on the present, pushing aside those memories for now.
Too often they had disturbed his sleep, Severus' sleep, but today, in fact their whole week, was about relaxing and having fun. The war still haunted most of England, and rather than stay there to mourn through the third anniversary celebration, they had left for a holiday. Harry wasn't sure where they were other than an island in the Caribbean since Severus had picked their destination, but with blue waters and white sand, he didn't care too much where they were.
Especially since this week included their two year and six month anniversary.
Severus wrapped an arm around Harry's waist. "It's a beautiful day."
Harry nodded. "Not a cloud in sight."
Severus sighed and stepped back. He removed his own shoes and tied the laces together. "I thought you wanted to enjoy today, Harry."
Harry frowned. "What?"
Severus rolled his eyes and put his shoes over his shoulder. He held out his hand. "There is no faster way to ruin a day than to comment about the nice weather."
Harry rolled his eyes and bumped his shoulder into Severus'. He slipped his hand around Severus' and squeezed his hand. "Even if it does start to rain, I won't mind. We're wizards after all."
Severus only hummed to that.
Naturally, no sooner had they sat down to lunch, it started to pour. Severus lifted his eyebrows pointedly. Harry looked at his wet sandwich, at the sky, and then at Severus.
"Sorry?" he offered quietly.
Severus put their soaked food in the garbage bag they had brought as Harry helped him to finish picking up. Severus was silent on the walk back to their rented cottage and Harry thought for sure he'd completely ruined the day. If they had put up a barrier before opening their lunch, it would have been nice. The beach had looked peaceful despite the pounding rain.
Severus held out his hand when they were almost to the cottage and Harry grinned as Severus pulled him close. "I am sorry."
"I know." Severus smiled softly and kissed Harry. "You're forgiven."
Harry smiled back and tilted his head back for another kiss. Severus of course gave him as many as he wanted, even as they stood in the rain.
