It is late in the evening, but Severus Snape is finally ready to sit back in his chair beside a steaming cup and contemplate. Because Merlin's beard, is there a lot to contemplate. He finally lets himself feel the emotions churning mutedly inside him as he stares into the flames hissing in his hearth. Nothing that happened today is what he expected, and he is not prepared, not at all prepared, for a Potter in his house...

"Why does it have to be a heart anyways?" the boy whined, holding his chin with the palm of his hand.
"Because that's how some people express their love."
"By giving their hearts?" Harry traced his chest in fright and Severus rolled his eyes.
"Metaphorically." he informed the pale looking child and drew his wand.
"I don't understand, why would I give my heart to someone, but not really give it to them? It doesn't count if I trick them into believing that I gave them my heart... When I still have it."
"It doesn't quite work like that, Harry." the potion master said.
"Then how does it work? Why can't it be a circle if it's not really a heart?"
