Summary: After a year-long relationship things should be easier than they are.
A/N: The title of this drabble comes from this anonymous quote: “The greatest distance in the world is the 14 inches separating the mind from the heart.” 

The Greatest Distance. 

Severus tenses as Harry finally approaches him. He’d ignored his lover’s suggestion to arrive together, and now wonders where they stand.

After a year-long relationship things should be easier than this, but loving Harry -loving anyone- feels like a battle to him. Sentiment is dangerous. It hurts most when it’s authentic, and Severus’ wary mind constantly undermines his heart’s kamikaze desire to give in, to have faith, to surrender.

There you are,” Harry greets. He’s soft eyes, worried smile, endless understanding; and Severus vows he won’t let his insecurities ruin this.

Yes,” He agrees bravely, wholeheartedly, “Here I am, Harry.”

This is exactly how I believe Severus would think, behave, and live: guarding his heart like a fierce wolf and at the same time yearning for it to be taken by someone who understands him, accepts him, loves him. I'm glad you give him Harry to fullfill this deepest desire. :)

Thank you, dear friend. As always, it's been a pleasure to read one of your stories. ^^

Trust them both to let their insecurities try to undermine their relationship-but perseverance and love will win the day!
