Summary: Severus and Harry, Christmas 1988
Little Harry series.

Severus walked down the aisle of Harrods' toy section, trying to find something special for Harry. The child asked for so little, Severus wanted the perfect gift. He stepped to one side as a man, arms loaded with toys, came down the aisle. The man juggle them, one toppling, and Severus grabbed it as it fell.

"Oh, thanks!" the man said as Severus silently set it back on the pile. "My son has a Christmas birthday and insists on double presents."

"My son is amazingly thankful for everything he receives," Severus said without thinking.

"You're a lucky bastard!"

"I am."

Harry looked out at the garden, covered in a new layer of fallen snow. Aunt Minerva came to stand beside him, putting a hand on his shoulder.

"Looks lovely, doesn't it?" She said softly.

Smiling up at her, Harry nodded. He wished that they could go out, but knew Severus wouldn't be back before dark.

"What say we wrap up warmly and go clean off the steps."

Harry grinned, bounding into his room for his jacket. Outside, Aunt Minerva waved her wand and the snow disappeared from the steps and the walkway.

"Now, have you ever made snow angels, Harry?"

Severus Apparated onto the front steps of his house, smiling when he saw that they'd been cleared. Seeing snow angels in the snow-covered garden, Severus knew how Harry and Minerva had entertained themselves. Harry was reading Minerva a story as Severus stepped inside.

"Sev'rus!" Harry jumped up and threw himself at his guardian.

Severus patted his back as Minerva gave him a pointed look. "It looks like you were busy this afternoon."

"We had a lovely time." Minerva assured him.

"Good," Severus said, bending down to hand Harry a bag. "I brought a treat for tea."

"Fish and chips!"



Aw, sounds like everyone had a good afternoon.
