School's Out by AllOutOfBubblegum School's Out by AllOutOfBubblegum
Warning: language, mild drug use, implied sexual shenanigans.

Severus arms were crossed over his thin chest as he glared out the window in the compartment he and Lily shared. The scenery went by, each clack along the tracks taking him closer to a place he didn't want to go home to. It was summer, and while most students Magical and Muggle alike celebrated the day, it made Severus nauseous.

He touched the cig that was tucked behind his ear. He'd put it there before boarding the train and couldn't wait to get off so he could light it. He rarely smoked while at Hogwarts, but when he was back in Spinners end for summers he would've given the mill chimney a run for its money, had it still been actively spewing a dirty looking trail against the sky. However, the mill was shut down last year, so now it was just Severus pacing his room, chain smoking the way some people stuff themselves with food to deal with stress.

For now he would have to continue glaring as sourly as possible, out the window. He listened to Lily chattering beside him. Her voice was sweet and happy as a birdsong, but it didn't cut through his funk right now. He didn't want to look at his parents both deteriorating, didn't want to hear their endless rows, didn't want to stay in a house where the only conversation had with him were his father's slurred insults which were full of words like 'worthless', 'freak', 'trash', 'ugly' and 'bastard', and a good amount of 'fuck' in its varied and interesting forms.

"Sev, hey..." Lily nudged him. She was the only person who dare disturb him when he was stewing and brooding, let alone to touch him. "Are you listening to me?"

"Of course." He said, not turning from the window.

"Look, you're going to melt that window if you glare at it one moment longer. Let this cheer you up a bit--when we get off the train, we'll go home with my parents. I've a beginning of summer gift for you, and you can stay for dinner and we can play records in my room. You can sleepover if you want."

"That all sounds nice except--you know I don't like gifts." He just disliked them because he could rarely give one back. He hadn't the money for it, and it embarrassed him that he couldn't return the favor to Lily.

"You'll just have to swallow your pride Severus Snape, because I got you a gift, and I'm giving it to you. Understand?"

Severus arched a thick brow at her.

"No, I don't. I'm afraid I've forgotten the English language. Perhaps hieroglyphs would be clearer."

"You're an arse." Lily laughed, and sat herself on Severus' lap, gently gripping his chin and tilting his head away from the window, so he looked at her instead. "Stop glaring out the damned window. If you want to glare at something, glare at me. You look so very intense."

"I couldn't glare at you."

Lily leaned a bit closer, touching the tip of her nose to his.

"I know." She grinned, and then bounced out of his lap when the train came to a stop. "Ooh! We're here!"

"Huh--what?" Lily bent to grab her owl's cage, and Severus' eyes flicked to her backside clothed in a tiny pair of rust colored shorts that showed off far too much of her pale, freckled legs, than was proper. Ah, Merlin, they were beautiful legs. Did she have any idea how lovely she was?

"Come on, Sev!" Lily grabbed his hand, tugging him up from his seat.

"Hmm?" He almost forgot to grab his trunk.

"What on earth are you distracted about now, I wonder?" Lily asked, as she stepped down from the train, and looked around for her parents.

"I've no idea." Severus replied. "Too many legs. Pardon me, I mean people. You know, people who have legs."

Lily gave him a puzzled look.

"Most people do have them, you know...except pirates. Pirates have wood. You know..." Lily grinned, and it seemed to Severus that it was a rather naughty smile--or at least, it had made him blush. "...for legs, of course."

"Of course." Severus said, tilting his head down and allowing his hair to fall into his face to hide his burning cheeks. He was thankful when Lily spotted her parents and ran towards them. It gave him a few moments to collect himself.

"Sev, come on!" Lily called to him, waving her hand to beckon him over.

-x-

"So good to be home!" Lily exclaimed, as she and Severus made their way up the stairs and to her room.

Lily sat her trunk and owl's cage against the wall, and ran to her bed, and threw herself down upon the bed with a squeal of delight. She bounced on the bed a couple of times as Severus stood in the doorway feeling awkward, and trying not to look at her chest bob nearly out of her flimsy shirt as she hopped, and then finally settled down into a sitting position. Lily patted a spot next to her on the bed.

"Come sit, Sev." She said, a bit breathlessly.

He sat on the edge of her bed. Lily took her shoes off and urged him to do the same and get comfy. She padded across the floor and opened her trunk, returning to the bed with a small case in her hands.

"Here you are, Sev."

"Lily, you didn't have to."

"I know that. I wanted to. Anyway, you're going to share it with me." She sat on her knees, watching eagerly. "Well, go on and open it!"

"You Gryffindors are so bloody pushy." Severus opened the case, surprised at what was inside. It was a pipe.

"I bought it from a Huffnpuff--they have all the fun things." Lily said, using the common nickname for Hufflepuffs. "And that's not all, look!" Lily dipped her fingers into her bra--to which Severus covered his face with his hands--which made her laugh. "You can look, silly."

Lily shook a baggy in front of his nose which poked out from between his hands. Severus lowered his hands, and saw what she was dangling.

"Perfect way to kick off the summer, don't you think Sev?" She dropped the baggy into his lap. "Go on and put it together, I'm going to get my records out."

-x-

Severus and Lily sat on her bed, mellowed in a sweet haze of smoke and music. Lily had been right, this was a great way to start the summer. Severus would not have minded to spend the entire summer like this. He slipped the tip of the long, slender, pipe stem between his lips, and inhaled deeply, savoring it awhile before slowly exhaling and passing the pipe to Lily.

"Ooh...this is so good, Sevy." She said, tilting her head back and exhaling smoke at the ceiling. She giggled. "Sevy. That's so funny. Soooo funny! Sevy Sevy Sevy. It doesn't rhyme with anything. It should rhyme, that would be good if it rhymed."

"Levy." Severus said, watching Lily stare off at the ceiling. "It does rhyme with levy."

"Oh Sev, you're soooo smart."

"And heavy."

"You are not!" Lily jabbed a finger at his ribs. "You're a beanpole! Oh--do you know what rhymes with beeeanpole? Hmmm mole." Lily passed the pipe back to Severus. "And d'you know I've got one of those. Look, I'll show you. It's on my..."

Lily shrugged out of her vest and slipped the straps of her tank and bra down her arm, revealing one of her perky breasts.

"Buh--agh." Severus choked out smoke. "Lily you--your--er...fff..."

"Don't you see it?" Lily poked at her breast, seeming to inspect it for the elusive mole.

"Buh--huh--see what was it you were looking for?"

"Oh, maybe it's the other one." Lily threw her shirt and bra off completely, looking now at the other breast. "Do you see the mole, Sevy-Levy?"

"Nnn...I...you..." Severus grabbed one of record covers and held it up like a shield in front of Lily's chest.

"Sevy, I don't think Hendrix can find my mole any better than you or I can. Hrrm...maybe it's not here. Are you sure you don't see it?" Lily plucked the record cover out of Severus' hands, and sat it aside.

"I...er...s-see...skin. Skin which has like, a bazillion freckles all over it and looks really soft and..."

"Maybe it's on my bottom!" Lily exclaimed, and shed the rest of her clothes. "Do you see it now?"

"You're n-na-nothing on!" Severus squeaked, his face so hot and red he was sure it would melt off.

A thought floated through his mind, as his glassy eyes roamed helplessly over and over Lily's skin, with not a mole in sight; 'who was it who decided to make men's pants so tight?' That question was really a mystery, as it was very illogical even in Severus' altered mind.

"You're naked." He repeated, the words seeming to glide around and mingle with the music, though he wasn't sure now what was playing other than they heavy thump of his heart.

"Stupid mole. Maybe one of my freckles ate it!" Lily giggled.

"You. Are. Quite--very--not clothed. There aren't any clothes. They're gone. Where did they go?" Severus fingers twitched, wanting to touch. "You're naked." He repeated, quietly, not sure if he believed it.

"Oh. Oh my! Oh I am naked Severus!"

Lily fell back onto the pillows laughing madly, as if she had just noticed her nudity, despite having looked herself over quite well for the mole. Tears trickled down the sides of Lily's face as her chest heaved with uncontrollable giggling. Finally she gained a bit of control, and looked over at Severus, who was just staring as if he had never seen the world before, and had just been born new into it, and everything was a wonder to behold.

"You know, that isn't fair." Lily said, crawling over to him. "If I'm naked, then you should be too." She slid her hands beneath his shirt.

-x-

Severus was shaken awake hours later. He jerked up when he realized his face was planted onto Lily's bare chest. In fact, they were both naked. The room was dim, and smelled of a lingering sweet smokiness along with a bit of muskiness. The needle on the record player was making a scratchy noise, as it had long ago played through the record and was now just idly spinning along the hairline grooves in the vinyl.

"What's wrong?" Severus asked, in the dim of the room. He glanced up at the owl clock on Lily's wall, and squinted at it through sand papery eyes, seeing that it was past 3am.

"Severus." Lily sat up, the rainbow afghan swaddled around her, red hair in a raging, tussled mane. "Oh Merlin--I am so fucking hungry."

It seems you played along with a recent comment on Snape's T-Shirt - it's Pink Floyd now :)

Where on earth do you search for these patterns? And what's NEHI (the bottles) - lemonade or sth. more ... rich in content? Clearly they're not a bit off their rocker because they drank coke ... looking at that pipe:XD: Very sophisticated, my dear.
Just like Yhu: I love the contrast between Lily's childhood pal going "Ooooh, why you naked?" and pure bliss. No comment on Lily ... 'moles' :XD:

AllOutOfBubblegum Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012
Lol Lily was such a mynx. Nehi is a type of cola with many flavors, usually fruit flavors. [link] It's not as popular now as it used to be. I'm trying to figure out if it was an American thing only, or if it was available in UK too. I probably should have looked into that before putting it in the picture. D:
