I live for Harry flirting with Malfoy to fluster him. For him getting more and more cocky about it. To the point it’s a joke to everyone else, but he can’t stop, because the ability to throw Malfoy off-balance has his heart racing. It’s like flying.
Until one day, Malfoy has had enough. With barely any words, he turns it back around. Steps close, lowers his tone, softens his expression. Suddenly, he’s speaking to Harry the way Harry had been talking to him. And Harry wants to deny it, he tries, but Malfoy’s standing too close, and he’s looking at him like that, and those words he’s saying sound familiar.
And Malfoy smirks, claims victory, and saunters off.
But Harry is still standing there, leaning against the wall off a corridor that’s out of the way. Breathless. Heart racing. And why had he followed Malfoy into that corridor anyway?
And he realises, he’s turned on. And disappointed. Disappointed that Malfoy walked away.
For weeks, Malfoy ignores him. Not a glance, not a word. Harry can’t catch his eye. He can’t tease and taunt him. He becomes bored. Restless. He’s being mocked for it, and he get’s angry, but he realises now that they’re right.
And he can’t stop thinking about how close they were standing, when Malfoy turned it around on him. And he can’t stop staring at him. All the time.
Christmas break happens, and when he comes back, he does something stupid, drastic. He manages to get Malfoy’s attention again. Only this time, this time, the flirting is deliberate. He catches Malfoy’s gaze, he holds it, and he makes sure Malfoy knows that he’s absolutely aware of what he’s doing.
And his heart is in his throat. Because it’s Malfoy, and there are so many reasons to not do this. But it’s Malfoy, and he never feels more alive than when he’s looking at him, and Malfoy is looking back.
Septum Ring: The easiest probably, just push/flip it up! (It’s easier if you get a black one but it’s still unnoticeable either way) Lip Piercing: Get a stud with a flat back, put it in so the ball/stud is on the inside of your mouth (Not the most comfortable but it works) and the flat end is on the outside then just cover that with your foundation Cartilage piercings: Okay I lied, this is the easiest, just a smaller sized ball and cover it with your hair/hats when you’re allowed. You can do this with a normal sized stud too, I have a larger stud that I’ve had for like two years and some people are still just now realizing I have them! Smiley Piercing: When they first do it they should have a straighter bar than the typical u-shaped one and if you keep that and switch between them that works. An eyebrow bar will also work because they’re pretty straight too so your lips will hide it. Stretched Ears: Not technically a piercing but if you don’t stretch them so it’s really noticeable (My friend who hid hers had like ½ inch or 1 inch) you can just only wear plugs and say that they’re fake (They sell fake tapers too). Obviously this is harder to hide and if you’re hiding them from someone really strict they might make you take them out to make sure and then, well, you can hide a hole in your ear. Tongue Piercing: Get a clear or pink ball so it won’t be so noticeable against your tongue. The lisp you’ll get will be harder to hide, if you get one, but if you start eating ice cubes that will help because it’ll keep the swelling down and if your mouth is full you’ll have an excuse for the lisp. (Doing it on a Friday and then going to a sleepover would probably be ideal since the lisp doesn’t last long) Eyebrow Piercing: Get a clear acrylic retainer, this will keep the piercing open without really showing (You should be able to get one of these for most piercings too, by the way)
