Summary: There is only one thing more beautiful than a beautiful dream, and that’s a beautiful reality.
Harry’s mouth trembles as Severus’ retreats. Warm, tea-flavored breath fans across his kiss-swollen lips as Harry simply sits there, eyes tightly closed, trying to hold on to the moment.
“Look at me.” Severus pleads, but Harry’s eyelids tighten instinctively.
“I can’t. I—What if I’m dreaming all this? What if you aren’t really here?”
Severus gasps, “I’ve never been anyone’s dream before,” he whispers wonderingly, shattering Harry’s crippling fear. Harry’s eyes flutter open, he stares and sighs, instantly enraptured. He’s never seen anything as gorgeous as Severus’ candid delight.
“You’re not my dream anymore,” he says, “You’re my beautiful reality.”
