“If you’d just try
“Maybe I’m sick of trying,” Draco shouted back. “You’ve no idea – or you wouldn’t give me this bollocks about trying
, like that fixes everything – ”
“I know trying isn’t everything,” Ron stormed, his face scarlet. He was looming-close, but Draco refused to back away. “But you could make an effort, show some loyalty – ”
“You’re one to talk about that – everyone knows you ran away from Potter in the woods!”
Ron’s eyes went flat and dull. “Fuck you.” He slammed out.
Draco stared at the door with dry eyes and felt ice flood his body.~*~
He stood in his flat for twelve minutes, shivering. He shouldn’t have said that, what if Ron never came back –
He ran out, determined to Apparate after Ron, and tripped over him. He was sitting on Draco’s doorstep.
Draco couldn’t speak.
“I ran away because I couldn’t take the isolation,” Ron said, staring determinedly at his hands. “I’m used to a big family, I need the energy of something always happening.” He looked up, and pinned Draco with his blue eyes. “You have that same energy. All by yourself.”
Draco collapsed next to him. Ron put his arm round him.
