Severus, Blaise What:
Apprenticeship, Take Two Where:
Headmaster's Quarters & Severus' potions lab When:
Morning after Dude, where's my stuff
Blaise woke slowly, stretching. He panicked for a moment, when he didn't recognize his surroundings. Looking around the room, he spotted Harry in the bed. Sighing with relief from his place on the couch, he smiled. If it had been another time and other circumstances, he would have been interested in the complex and fascinating wizard. His life was much too complicated already and adding Harry to his romantic issues would have spelled disaster.
He got up from the couch and found some parchment, a quill and ink to leave Harry a note.
Thanks for the company and listening ear. I appreciate it and the place to sleep more than you'll ever know. I can only hope that this is the beginning of a friendship. One can never have too many friends.
Blaise left quietly, rewarding Harry's quarters as he left. It didn't take him long to get back to his own rooms and take a shower. A quick look in his medicine cabinet had him groaning. He had forgotten that he needed to make both hangover and pepper up potions. He didn't have enough time to make them now. It wasn't like the hangover was terrible. He wanted to impress Severus though, and he wasn't sure he could do it like this. Sighing, he dressed and got his notes and other items for his apprenticeship. It didn't take long for him to be outside of the gryfforin. Blaise stared at it for a few long moments. He knew that his relationship with Padma was clearly lacking in some important areas, but he wasn't sure that his love for Severus could be repaired, no matter what Harry said. The mere thought made Blaise chuckle. Severus would choke if he knew that Harry had put in a few good words for his case. Still smiling, Blaise ignored the pounding of his head and said the password, Simaruba. Walking into the Headmaster's quarters, he called out, "I'm here, Severus," and tried not to wince as the strength of his own voice made his head pound.
