Harry woke up smiling, his head pillowed on Severus' shoulder. He shifted and Severus' arm around his shoulder tightened. "Not going anywhere," Harry told him around a yawn.
Severus hummed, but he did loosen his grip. "Morning."
Blinking, Harry looked across the bed to the beach. It was just about dawn and the sun was laying an orange path toward them. "Been awake long?"
"Depends on whether you consider an hour long," Severus teased. "Come here."
Harry shifted just enough for a gentle kiss. "You could have woken me up."
"I liked it," Severus told him. "A little bit of time to think. I often do some of best thinking with you asleep in my arms."
Harry narrowed his eyes. "I'm not sure if that's creepy or not."
Severus chuckled. "It isn't. That breakthrough on my potion before we left? I got that idea when you fell asleep before me on your first Saturday off since you began training."
"That's good," Harry said with a smile.
Severus kissed the top of his head and rubbed his thumb across his shoulder. "I was thinking about a quote I read when I was a boy. I hated it because it meant that I'd be alone, but now? I think I've changed my mind."
Harry tilted his head. "What is it?"
"Summertime is always the best of what might be," Severus whispered. "If that's true, Harry, I'm hoping we'll have a lot more summers, each better than the last, so I'll know our life together will the best choice I ever made."
Harry shifted to give Severus a deep kiss.
Harry looked around the cottage, happy to be going home. Yet, he was sad to be going. Their week here had been amazing and relaxing. They'd had sex in every room, several times. There had been quiet moments, reading together, and one time, Severus read to him on the window bench. They'd taken turns cooking, but more often had cooked together.
Arms wrapped around his waist and he leaned back. "Sorry."
Severus kissed his neck. "Nothing to apologize for. This was a good holiday. We should do it again."
Smiling, Harry turned around and wrapped his arms around Severus' back. "I was actually thinking. We should do more of this when we get home. I don't think we've cooked together since I moved in with you. And I liked it when you read to me. I love your voice."
"Maybe we could put in a bench by the back window?" Severus mused aloud. "We've already got two chairs there. It'd be easy enough to add a nice bench there. Maybe move the chairs closer to the fireplace?"
"I think I'd like that," Harry teased. "A lot."
"So many things I've found out about you this week," Severus said. "And so many things to experiment with. Have been experimenting with."
Harry shivered at the purr in Severus' voice. "And will continue experimenting with."
Severus kissed him. "Let's go home. We have our whole future to look forward to."
