Author’s Notes: Yet another late challenge, this one for rondracodrabble.

Ron bent to tie his shoelaces, then stood. Draco was still reclining in bed. Used to Draco’s tactics, Ron carefully avoided his sultry gaze; he could only take the afternoon off so many times.

“Ron...” Draco’s voice wasn’t seductive or playful, but carefully blank. That made Ron look up into serious grey eyes, and sigh.

“I’ll confess tonight that I’m seeing you.”

“Is that how you think of it? Confessing? I’m a sin, a vice to be purged?” Draco’s voice always trembled when he was hurt.

“I didn’t... I’m sorry.” Ron leant to kiss Draco, but he turned his face away.


Ron’s shoulders sagged a little, and he left. Draco remained naked amongst the silk sheets; usually a sensual delight, now simply reminding him that Ron wasn’t sharing them.

Ron was an excellent shag, and over long weekends when Ron pretended he was on assignments, they played chess naked (later finding pawns in the bedsheets) and ate foreign foods their mothers disapproved of.

But the thought that soured Draco’s heart kept intruding: Ron would never leave his warm, cosy, conservative family.

Twenty minutes later, Ron shot back through the Floo. “So,” he panted, singed but grinning. “Can I stay here tonight?”

Ooh, I like this and I love the phrase "sensual delight."

Thanks! Yay for you liking that phrase - that sentence was messed with SO MUCH so I could get it to 100 words.

Jumps up and down. Sweet! Loved the ending.

Heh, thanks! :D

Love, love, love. And he definitely is a sin. Excellent.

Thank you! *grins* And Draco is definitely a sin to be committed (to)!

Awwww!!!! I'm so glad Ron didn't just leave my poor hurt Draco to brood over that. *pats Ron*
Vice = no. Sinfully delicious = hell yes!

:D Thanks! Ron is clueless sometimes, but he's not so bad as to leave poor Draco all hurt.

Vice = no. Sinfully delicious = hell yes!

So sweet. I can just picture Ron standing there in front of the floo, hair standing at odd angles and soot all over his face. &hearts

And yes, Draco is most certainly a sin. The most delightful sin. XD

Excellent work as always.

*grins* I love silly-looking!Ron, it's really sweet.

Why do I fail at replying to your comments? I don't know, but it's nothing personal! (Azkatraz was awesome, but taught me a lot about the possibility of Accidental Hurting of Feelings.) Also, I am so nabbing an R/D icon off you. Desperate times, m'dear. :D

Awww, that's sweet on Ron's part. I agree with the above comment, about being able to see Ron's head in the Floo!
Poor Draco for part 1 though. No wonder he didn't want to kiss Ron goodbye!

:D Thanks, babe! And yes, poor Draco. But Ron made it all better!
