Slowly, carefully, Severus dragged his fingers across Harry's shoulder, along his collar bone, and up the curve of his neck. An instant later, he felt the tremor that ran through Harry's body, heard his shuddering exhalation of breath. With no candle flame or moonlight to illuminate the scene, their dungeon chambers were pitch black.
It mattered not.
Severus had long since memorized the expression that crossed Harry's features when he was wholly caught up in the moment -- the way his eyes fluttered shut as his mouth opened, tongue darting out to swipe across his bottom lip; the tiny wrinkle that formed between his brows as he reached for Severus and gasped his name; the way his unruly hair fell across the pillow as he arched into Severus' touch.
Leaning down, Severus poured all the intensity of his feelings for the impossible imp into one searing, breath-stealing kiss. In the dark of night, he could pretend that he was someone else; someone handsome and noble and deserving of Harry. In the dark of night, he was able to do things, to say things that he would never consider by light of day.
