Loud Silence - Severus x Reader
The crackle from the fire that warmed up the room, was the only sound you could hear. There was nothing you enjoyed the most than that particular sound, as you sat comfortably in a loveseat, a book on your lap, and a generous glass of fire whiskey in hand.
If you allowed yourself to be completely honest, it actually wasn’t any of those things that made you smile. But the man sitting at his desk across the room, his always harsh features focusing on grading every parchment on his hands.
That was how you usually shared your days. Alone together in his office, drinking whiskey, grading papers, reading, or sometimes chatting about everything and nothing at all. It was usually potions and the Dark Arts, since Severus loved to learn and discover everything he could about those subjects.
That particular Friday afternoon, however, you couldn’t have been more annoyed.
