Harry picked a selection off the bookstore’s shelf at random. Secrets of the Zodiac the title read.
Harry began to flip through the pages until he found his birthday under the heading ‘Leo’ and saw a lion. He smirked. A snort from behind him rustled the hair along his neck.
Harry looked back and saw Severus was looking over his shoulder, his normal disgusted expression magnified tenfold.
“Gryffindor, through and through,” Harry said, chest bursting with pride.
Severus pinched the boy’s arse in retribution, startling Harry, and allowing Severus the opportunity to steal the book for his own perusal.
“Give that back!” Harry whined, but Severus merely smirked, and began to flip through the pages, lazily.
Severus browsed the pages quickly, his smirk transitioning to a scowl.
“Bugger this book.” He dropped the book to the floor and stormed away.
Harry called after him. “You’d rather bugger me.” Severus stopped, fists clenching at his sides, but continued on without a word.
Harry picked up the abused book, straightening out pages, and looked to where it was open.
‘Capricorn: the mountain goat.’
Harry burst out laughing, happy to see his lover was not a snake. That would be too cliché.
