Ficlet: Wake Up Soon (PG-13, SS/HG)  
Title: Wake Up Soon
Prompt: 23: Secret Kiss – SS/HG
Characters/Pairing: Severus Snape/Hermione Granger
Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~165 words
Summary: She reads to him a little every day.
A/N: For miamadwyn.

He lay on the bed, pale and barely breathing. His neck was bandaged from the snake bite. Madame Pomfrey still wasn’t certain if he’d live. Hermione sat at his bedside, quietly reading out loud to him from a potions journal. She read him a couple articles a day. It couldn’t hurt, and she hated to see him lay here all alone. Very few people checked in on him, and most of those were dreadfully official looking.

She finished the article and slid the journal closed, her time for today finished. She rose and slipped it into her bag before reaching forth to smooth his covers. “Rest well and wake up soon, professor,” she told him quietly. She hesitated and looked around; she was alone in the corner, privacy curtains around them. She leaned down and brushed her lips against his cheek, which was daring in its own right.

“This new world needs you, Severus Snape. Now don’t take too long in getting back to it.”

So sweet and touching. To me, this sounds exactly what she would do. It would be the wedge that eventually pulls her and Ron apart, because he wouldn't understand it, and she would find herself falling for her Potions Professor even as she read him back to life.

*sigh* Yep, that's exactly how I think it happened. Just like you said! ;)

Yes! It would probably happen just like that. Reading him back to life - books are definitely a magic that can do that!

:D *grins* So glad you enjoyed.
