Ensnared Chapter Eight: Down by the LakeA Snarry Fanfic
Harry awoke early on Saturday morning to sunlight streaming through the windows. He groaned and stretched, grasping clumsily for his glasses that sat on the bedside table. He checked his watch, which showed half past seven. Despite the earliness of the hour, Harry felt quite energetic, so he slipped quietly out of bed and padded over to the window. From there he could see the castle grounds stretched out before him, the bright sun glaring off the lake, the nearly cloudless blue sky; it promised to be a lovely day. Perhaps he would have an early breakfast and go for a walk around the grounds.
A few minutes later Harry was fully dressed and heading towards the Gryffindor table. The Great Hall was fuller than he’d expected it to be so early on a weekend. As he had no wish to talk to anybody, he sat at the far end of the table, away from all the other Gryffindors. Then he grabbed a handful of toast and began spreading them with butter and jam.

But now here he was, descending the stairs to the dungeons without trepidation.
Ever since their inexplicable relationship had started, Harry had been going to visit Severus in his office almost every night. He found it surprisingly difficult to stay away, and Severus certainly wasn’t complaining. Usually t

“Because I will hurt you.”
Severus’ words echoed in Harry’s mind, dredging up the seeds of doubt that still sat waiting in the back of his mind. But in almost the same instant Harry realized that he could never have expected anything else from the Potions Master. Of course he would hurt Harry! Harry would probably hurt him back, quite honestly. really, Harry thought, that isn’t anything new to us. He let the flames of passion burn the seeds of doubt away, and vowed to never let them grow. Harry reached out and grabbed ahold of the front of Severus’ robes, pulling the man close to him, so that they were nose to nose.
“Pain never frightened me,” he said. And that was true.
The cold and calculating eyes glittered, and Severus smiled; a true smile, though small and hesitant.
“Nor I,” He said.
Harry’s grip on Severus’ robes tightened. Images of that awful memory still
