Summary: Their first holiday together.
A/N: Thanks to my beta, mahmfic. All remaining mistakes are my own. There are 4 parts to this; I tried to get them ready earlier, but the internet ate my email to my beta and I only just got some of these back. (They will be posted by tonight! ...I hope.)
Harry lit the candles with a wave of his wand and dimmed the house lights. Nodding, he checked the insect and weather ward -- he didn't want a repeat of the beach, nice as Severus' forgiveness had been. He set a warming charm under the food and went down to the bedroom to wake Severus.
They'd enjoyed a bit of fun in the shower after coming in from the beach and then some more in the bedroom. They'd decided to nap afterward since they were already in bed and when Harry woke first, he knew exactly what he wanted to do that night. Especially since Severus had made their lunch which had gotten ruined by the rain.
He sat on the bed, next to Severus' hip and bent to kiss him awake. Severus hummed into the kiss and kept it going for a few minutes, holding the back of Harry's head. "Evening."
Harry smiled. "Dinner time."
Severus sighed and looked Harry up and down, at the nice clothes he was wearing. "Much as I would enjoy stripping those clothes off of you, I would have to say food first. I do need my energy after all."
"Get dressed and come up to the roof," Harry told him. "I've got a surprise for you."
Harry shifted in his seat again. What was taking Severus so long? Harry only said to get dressed, not take another shower. He looked at the stairs leading to the roof, biting his lip. He turned to the food which was being kept warm, but no one liked food that was kept warm for too long.
"Harry," Severus called.
Nearly toppling out of his seat, Harry faced Severus and his mouth dropped open. Severus was wearing a button down shirt, untucked, and loose knit pants. He'd been wearing his usual shop clothes -- a looser version of his brewing robes -- ever since they had gotten to the island. Harry could count on one hand the number of times he'd seen Severus in anything except black robes.
Severus smirked. "So it is a special occasion?"
Harry swallowed hard. "It can be?"
Severus' smirk deepened and he elegantly sat in the chair opposite Harry. "Is this to make up for earlier?"
Harry nodded absently. He was a bit distracted by Severus' neck which was on display between the unbuttoned collar of his shirt. Severus uncovered the dishes and breathed deep. "My favorites. If I didn't know any better, I'd think you were seducing me."
Those were the exact words that Severus had used when he'd finally sussed out that Harry was courting him. Harry had invited him to his flat and set up a dinner with Severus' favorite foods, the same as tonight. Except that tonight Harry knew exactly what he wanted to be doing later and he stood a high chance of it happening.
"I think I can safely say that I don't expect tonight to end with me wondering what I did wrong," Harry teased back.
Severus smoothly sat back. "I'm not quite that sure of a thing, Mr. Potter. In fact, I would work hard if I were you. My nice anniversary lunch was ruined after all."
Harry licked his lips. "Would you like me to improvise or to direct me?"
Severus looked Harry up and down slowly, considering. "Improvise. And well or you'll be sleeping on the couch."
Well. Harry coughed a little and decided to do what he did best: surprise Severus.
