Day 20: Owls
Sorry this is so late, I was super busy! So instead of a drawing, I’ll write another short one shot for the theme today. Happy Fun Kiss Friday! For @drarry-halloween-fest
Harry Potter walked into the dark Owlery, determined to send his special package for his friends. They had gone to the Burrow to celebrate the Christmas holidays, and so Harry was hanging out with Draco, who wanted to stay at the castle rather than go back to the Manor. He was just done wrapping their presents and tying them to Hedwig when a blond diversion by the name of Draco walked in.
They had been friends since first year, and were in the same house, Slytherin. Although they were also friends with Ron and Hermione, who were in Gryffindor, the two were inseparable. The war was over, and all was well. Well maybe except for the fact the Harry had a huge crush on Draco.
“Hey Harry,” Draco said, offering him a small smile. “What are you doing up here?”
“Presents,” he said, smiling, but feeling an odd stirring in his stomach knowing that Draco would never like him back. “You?”
“Sending a letter,” Draco replied and turned to his eagle owl.
They worked in silence, a comfortable one, and after he had sent Hedwig on her way, he turned to see an eagle owl holding out a letter. He smiled, and pulled the letter off of the owl’s foot, and opened it. His heart seemed to stop there as he read the four words.
Can I kiss you?
Harry didn’t know what to do. This could finally happen, all he had to do was say yes. He turned to see a blushing Draco staring at the table, and smiled. Draco was worth it, he decided.
“Yes,” he said, and Draco’s eyes shot up to meet his, the blush darkening further, a blooming pink.
Carefully, Draco walked towards him, slowly, and Harry thought his heart might burst.
“I like you, Harry Potter,” Draco whispered, lips mere inches away from Harry’s own.
“And I like you too, you prat. But are you going to kiss me or not?”
Draco moved, or Harry moved and their lips brushed together, leaving tingles all over Harry’s body. Then Draco pulled back, and leaned in to kiss Harry harder, groaning as he pulled away.
“You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do that.” Draco said, smiling widely.
“I think I do,” Harry said, smirking and leaned in for another kiss.
