Challenge: Storm Front
Length: 100 words
A/N: This is dedicated to my dear friend stgulik. She didn’t beta this, so please don’t blame her. Title comes from a Tina Turner song, I’ll Be Thunder.
The flash of lightning lit up the night in a strobe of stark, blinding light. Hermione tensed, then jumped as its brother thunder boomed through the castle like a cannon’s roar.
Warm hands caressed her shoulders, making her jump again. “Steady, Granger,” a bemused voice murmured in her ear, its deep timbre carrying its own honey and thunder. “You’re not frightened of a storm front, are you?”
She smiled, then turned to her lover. “I’ve managed to weather everything you’ve thrown at me, Severus. What’s a little thunder after that?”
“Come to bed then, and we’ll make our own storm.”
