All of You
Title: All of You
Word Count: 306
Summary: Severus loves all of Harry.
A/N: A response to: write a drabble using the sentence “Severus unpacked his valise, carefully removing his rather special...souvenir.” It seems that in my previous try I falsely promised Snarry. I hate to disappoint, so here you go (*ahem* Alisanne). No beta, because I can't seem to resist making an ass out of myself. These characters are not mine. I wouldn't know what to do with them if they were.
Severus waited until Harry had left the building. He walked into the shop and murmured a quick Accio. When the proprietor noticed him, he cast a mild befuddlement spell on the man and left quietly.
When he arrived back home, Severus unpacked his valise, carefully removing his rather special ... souvenir. He was in the process of putting the hair in the jar with the rest of Harry’s effluvium when he realized that Harry was standing right behind him.
“What in Merlin’s name are you holding?”
Severus froze. He couldn’t believe that he hadn’t heard Harry enter the basement laboratory.
“Is that what I think it is, Severus?”
“How should I know what you are thinking? I am relatively certain that not even you are aware of what is going through your head at any given moment.”
“You’re not going to be able to distract me with insults. I want to know why you have a jar full of my hair. And… other things.”
Severus considered lying. Then he realized that this was an awkward, but opportune moment to make a few things clear to his lover.
“I have always protected you to the best of my ability. That duty is not over just because of our changed relationship.”
“How is hoarding all that protecting me?”
“Do you have any idea how many injurious spells and potions can be made from your hair? From your fingernail clippings? You are constantly leaving the door open for any number of attacks on your person. I will not stand for it.”
“Alright. I see your point. Perhaps I am a bit careless. But why don’t you just use Incendio to destroy the, um, bits?”
Severus just looked at Harry. He couldn’t bring himself to say it.
Finally the penny dropped. Harry blinked back tears and grabbed Severus in a fierce hug. The jar dropped to the floor and shattered, forgotten.
