“Harry, are you home?” Draco called out as he unlocked the front door of the house he and Harry shared. When he received no answer, he hung his traveling cloak up on a peg by the door and continued on into the house. “Are you still moping?” he asked when he noticed that Harry was curled up in a ball on the couch.
“Leave me alone,” Harry muttered, glaring at Draco.
“And let you do something stupid? I don’t think so. Come on Love, cheer up,” Draco said, pressing a kiss to the top of Harry’s head.
“Merlin, can’t I mope in peace?” Harry asked, rolling his eyes as Draco sat down on the couch beside him.
“Because it’s nothing to mope about; so you lost a quidditch match, it’s not like it’s the first time,” Draco said, squeezing Harry’s hand.
“No, I lost a quidditch match in the playoffs for the World Cup. The team and the fans hate me,” he said, closing his eyes and laying his head on Draco’s shoulder.
Draco sighed and rubbed his eyes tiredly. “No they don’t. You’re one hell of a quidditch player and one lost game isn’t going to make anyone hate you. So you had an off day, who cares,” he reassured him. “I got you a gift,” he said after a few minutes of silence.
“Why?” Harry asked suspiciously as Draco stood up.
“Just because. Stay here,” he said, disappearing up the stairs. “Because I’m tired of you moping,” Draco said, handing Harry a package wrapped in plain brown paper.
Harry smiled slightly as he untaped the package, his smile widening at the sight of a black leather photo album. “How did you –?” he asked as he flipped through the pages of pictures from his years at Hogwarts.
“I had help from Granger and the Weasel,” Draco admitted with a shrug as Harry stopped on a picture of the two of them sleeping naked in Draco’s bed in the Slytherin dorms.
“And this one?” he asked, looking up at the blonde.
“Curtosey of one Vincent Crabbe. He was playing around with his new camera and caught something he didn’t expect,” Draco said with a laugh as Harry’s cheeks tinged pink. “I’ve had the album for a while, I just had to find the perfect time to give it to you,” he said as Harry stood up and hugged him.
“I love it and damn you for getting me in a better mood,” Harry said with mock seriousness, his hands resting on Draco’s chest. He kissed Draco softly, deepening the kiss as he pushed Draco onto the couch. “Stay here, I’m going to go mope in the bedroom,” he said, planting a kiss on the tip of Draco’s nose before grabbing the photo album and heading towards the stairs.
“He’s insane,” Draco said, throwing his arms up in surrender as he watched the brunette disappear up the stairs.
