Summary: I’m not looking for an expert, Severus.

No Expertise Required.

Severus approaches Harry’s table slowly, all tense limbs, pinched expression and wary dark eyes. He stills beside the unoccupied chair and whispers “You're still here” in a tone that brims with disbelieving wonder.

“Where else would I be?” Potter answers oh-so-softly.

“I’m fifty minutes late.”

“I know that.”

Then why are you still here?”

“Because I’m waiting for you.”

Severus fidgets uncomfortably. “You think I want it. This so-called fresh start of yours.”

“You’re here, aren’t you?”

“It’s a bad idea, Potter. I know nothing about love.”

“I’m not looking for an expert, Severus. I’m looking for you. Just you.”

Aww. Poor Severus. He's so ready to sabotage himself.
Harry's patient, though. <3

So painful yet you can feel the hope-from both of them. So how long was Severus in the shadows waiting for Harry to leave? Thank you for sharing.

Silly Severus, doesn't know yet he is absolutely worth waiting for...

You captured the tenderness in this scene expertly. A lovely drabble:)

This was a test, wasn't it? To see if Harry was serious about starting fresh. And Harry is right - Severus wants it, too. He came to meet Harry, after all. And isn't it a nice way to start,by learning about love together?

Thank you for your sweet drabble, dear friend. ^^ As you can see I'm catching up with old notifications in my inbox. I'm glad I found this one today, as it makes a bleak day brighter and warm.
