It was not the answer Harry had been expecting when he had steeled himself and asked how many Severus had killed for the Dark Lord before he turned spy. He'd braced himself for dozens.

"Just one? Do you... regret it?"

"It was why I switched sides."

Harry's eyes widened. He had thought his mother's death sentence triggered Snape's defection. "You were close to this person?"

"I hardly knew the man. Nobody on either side was sorry when he died."

"Then why...?"

"It was my potion. An invisible killer. Despicable." Shaking his head, Severus muttered, "Dragon pox, at his age."

Severus still thinks about what might have happened had he failed.

He had asked, naughtily, what Harry wanted for his birthday. The half-joking shrug had offered the choice of smirking at the reply:

"I want you to tell me you love me."

Yet Severus had seen doubt in Harry's eyes. That mistrust was more unpleasant than swallowing his dignity and uttering the banal endearment.

Now he imagines the consequences had pride prevented him from speaking. Would Harry have left him, craving the certainty of that phrase?

The words still come reluctantly, but Severus says them. They are, after all, true.
