Souvenir by Torina Archelda
Word Count: 200
Summary: Severus has something for Harry.
A/N: A response to whitecotton’s drabble challenge: write a drabble using the sentence “Severus unpacked his valise, carefully removing his rather special...souvenir.” Thanks to purpledodah for the beta!
Severus unpacked his valise, carefully removing his rather special...souvenir. He'd seen Harry's eyes rest upon it a bit too long in the antique shop, though he doubted Harry had had the same purpose in mind for it. He slid the tip of his finger across the surface of the cool metal band, tracing the intricate patterns. Runes for protection, love, serenity, friendship...the fertility rune was an irony, but one Severus could live with given how taken he could tell Harry had been with it. He'd taken his mastery in defense, but a short-lived relationship with the eldest Weasley boy had kindled in him a fascination with the ancient symbols. Severus' collection of potions books was now rivaled by his lover's collection of those on runic magic.
"Severus?" Harry called from the next room, and Severus quickly slipped the ring into his pocket. "Are you unpacked yet? Albus will be expecting us for dinner."
“Coming,” Severus called, stashing the ring in his bedside drawer. Tomorrow, he told himself firmly, heading to the sitting room to meet Harry. I’ll ask him tomorrow.
