Wednesday, February 15th ~ Morning
Ginny woke to a slight tremor in the mattress beneath her. Slowly opening her eyes, the sight of her gown from the night before tossed on a chair across the room brought a smile to her face and the memories of how the night had ended to the forefront of her mind.
Looking over one shoulder, she fought to suppress a laugh at what she saw. Severus silently battling wills with his hell- Claudius. Obviously the mutt had no intention of getting off the bed, despite Severus' best efforts.
Tempted to continue to watch them, his bare back within reach was far more tempting. She silently reached an arm over to graze the pale skin, as she sat up behind him. Using one arm to press the bedsheet to her body, she rested her chin on his shoulder and smiled down at the canine intruder.
"I don't blame him for not wanting to move. It seems I stole his regular spot last night." Ginny's lips grazed the lines of his shoulder, whispering against his skin. "I'd be a bit grouchy if I wasn't allowed to sleep next to you."
She placed a slow and lingering kiss at the nape of his neck.
