First and Last Declaration Title: First and Last Declaration Author:lemondropseven Pairing: Severus/Harry Rating: R, just to be safe Word Count: 100x2 Warnings: None. Summary: Established relationships have many firsts and lasts. A/N: In this series, the 'first' and 'last' double drabble are from the same universe, story, whatever you want to call it, but each pair are not related to each other. I hope that's clear.
They'd fucked long before they ever made love. Even when their weird unspoken relationship became something more than fuck-buddies, it wasn't love.
And then, suddenly, one day, it was.
Harry wasn't sure exactly how or when he'd fallen in love with Snape, but as they lay tangled together, thoroughly satisfied, he had to bite his tongue on the words that wanted to burst from his chest; Snape wouldn't want to hear them.
Soft lips tenderly kissed his shoulder, and hope gave his impetuous bravery--he really needed to work on that particular Gryffindor trait--the push it needed.
"I love you, Severus."
Severus froze, heart pounding, fingers clamped down hard on Harry's arm. "You what?"
"Um. Well...I..." Harry's response was less than eloquent, but not unexpected. He bit his lip, green eyes alight with hope and love, waiting for a response.
Deliberately relaxing every muscle, Severus melted against Harry, kissing his shoulder again. Then his collarbone, throat, jaw, and finally his lips. He could taste Harry's relief. When they parted, Severus nibbled his way to Harry's ear and whispered, "And I love you."
They never spoke of it again--they didn't need to--each secure in the knowledge that his love was returned.
