Summary: “Yes, this is what I want.” Harry whispers fiercely, embracing his prickly love with utter gentleness.
Harry hates Severus' need to unbutton his left cuff first when he's undressing. He'll stand beside the bed, back ramrod-straight like a proud warrior, and undo those two small buttons like a man throwing down a gauntlet: 'This is what you want. This marked, tainted, thing. This monster. This Death-Eater. This worthless creature who doesn't deserve you.'
Harry hears Severus' unvoiced challenge and dismisses it altogether by moving relentlessly forwards.
“Yes, this is what I want.” He whispers fiercely, embracing his prickly love with utter gentleness. “I want this marked, tainted, thing. I want you with all my heart, Severus.”
