Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Authors Notes: This was written for hd100's current challenge, secret.

He wakes up, and turns to see Harry lying beside him, every morning.

They smile at each other and kiss; Draco laughingly complains of morning breath, and they check if they have time for sex. They do, limbs entangled and mouths close.

It’s bliss.

Then Draco leaves for work. His colleagues snicker together; his boss sneers, though Draco knows he’s doing well; he goes and sits in the cubicle he still hasn’t been promoted out of, and reads Rita Skeeter’s latest bile. Moral degenerates who should be allowed no influence...

Draco secretly wonders if he should have stayed with Astoria.

Hm? I sorta don't get it. x) *bricked*

Like, is the secret Draco's relationship with Harry, or secretly wondering about Astoria? :o

D: But poor Draco. *snugs* It was a good slice-of-life drabble. :D

The secret is that he's wondering if he should have stayed with Astoria - he left her for Harry, and now he's having a hard time dealing with the consequences.

Oops! I commented in the wrong place, I totally meant to do it in your lj. Ahem. As I said...

Aw, hon! *sniffs* Don't do that to me! This was so sad, I just want to snuggle them both and tell Draco it's okay.

You are evil, evil, evil. How do you fit so much angst into 100 words?

Really? I didn't see it.

Sorry I made you sad! Well, no, not really. I'm sorry I made the boys sad, though.

How do you fit so much angst into 100 words?

Ahaha. It's a gift.

Fie on all of them!

Hee. Quite!

Ah. :( Too sad.

Draco should have a magic mirror he could look into and see how miserable he'd be if he had stayed with Astoria.

I actually love that idea. And I'm sure you're right. Not sure Draco believes it, though...

Okay, but where's Hermione in all of this? Should she turn Rita into something horrible and very very small?

Hahaha! Well, she's probably not hugely interested in protecting Draco, and maybe adult!Hermione is less willing to inflict blackmail and such :) But yeah, I totally reckon given time Hermione would go all FEAR MY WRATH.
