Challenge: hp_may_madness 2016 Day #28: Blame, paint, owl, food smut
Author's Notes: Unbeta'd. Managed to carve some time out! Fingers crossed the next three days work as well!
"I think we may have gotten chocolate sauce on the walls," Draco said, his voice breathy and satisfied from his recent orgasm.
Charlie looked over at the wall Draco had gestured at. There was a dark splatter across the paint. He felt strangely proud that they'd been so vigorous as to hit the wall several feet away.
"Don't blame me, you're the one who wanted chocolate sauce."
"For ice cream, not for licking off my chest!"
Charlie rolled on top of Draco, pinning him down against the bed and bringing every inch of their naked skin into delicious contact. "I didn't hear any complaints earlier," Charlie murmured, staring into the soft grey of Draco's eyes as his lips hovered just out of reach.
Draco smiled and nudged his face up, pressing their lips together in a gentle kiss that quickly deepened into something slow and hot and mind-numbingly good.
"You know," Draco said sometime later, as he curled up against Charlie's chest. "The strangest thing happened to me today."
"I went up to find my eagle owl in the owlery, so I could send off my weekly letter to my mother, and I ran into Potter."
"And that was strange because…?"
"Because he was pleasant. We've mostly been staying out of each other's way this year, but today he actually stopped to talk about the weather and Quidditch. It was bizarre."
A slow grin spread across Charlie's face. He was sure that Harry had made the effort because of Charlie, because he'd realised what was happening between Charlie and Draco when they'd spoken all those weeks ago. It meant a lot to Charlie, knowing that Harry was so willing to move on and get to know Draco now. He hoped that it was indicative of how the rest of his family would take the news of his and Draco's relationship.
"But that's a good thing, right? Getting on friendlier terms with Harry?"
Draco nodded against Charlie's chest, his fingertip drawing patterns onto Charlie's skin. "Weird, but good."
"I'm glad. You know I want you in my life, right? For everything." Charlie felt awkward saying the unspoken words aloud, but he needed Draco to know that he was serious.
"Yeah," Draco whispered. "I know. Me too."
Charlie grinned broadly down at Draco. "It means you're probably going to have to interact with Harry more frequently. Hermione and Ron and all of my other siblings, too. You think you're up for the challenge?"
Draco's answering smile was filthy and sent a frisson of desire down Charlie's spine. "Oh, you know me, Charlie. I'm up for anything."
