Slytherin Subtlety


“There you are, old friend, it appears congratulations are in order.”

“Lucius. I knew I’d see you here. You do love Ministry events.”

“One must keep one’s hand in. Are you going to pretend you didn’t hear my question?”

“Did you ask one?”

“Dear me, you’re being slippery tonight. I noticed your arrival with Potter. I take it things between you are…cordial?”

“What are you suggesting? Potter and I are colleagues and happened to arrived together. It was a coincidence.”

“You sound defensive. There’s nothing wrong with taking a younger lover. I’ve considered it.”

“And then you realised Narcissa would have your guts for garters?”

“Oh, she’s understanding.”

“She’s not that understanding.”

“You always were wise beyond your years. But back to you and Potter. Would you mind if I approached him?”

“Approached him?”

“Well, yes. He’s…attractive, and since you’re not involved, we wouldn’t be in competition. An relationship with him could be advantageous…Severus? Why are you looking at me like—? Merlin!”

“Dear me. I’ve never seen formal robes rip like that. Surely they weren’t a rental?”

“How dare—?”

“Everything all right here?”

“Potter. Yes, everything’s fine. Lucius was just leaving.”

“Tsk, Severus. You used to be subtle.”

“Goodnight, Lucius.”

“What was that about?”

“I believe Lucius had too much to drink.”

“Funny, he looked fine to me.”

“You’ve made a habit of watching him, have you?”

“Severus, are you jealous?”

“Don’t be ridiculous. And should you be standing so close to me? We are in public view.”

“I don’t care if people know we’re together. Plus, maybe then people will stop flirting with you.”

“Flirting? With me? Don’t be ridiculous.”

“Malfoy was standing rather close.”

“Now who’s jealous?”

“I’m not afraid to admit it.”

“No, I suppose you’re not.”

“Why are you shaking your head?”

“Because a year ago…I’d never have pictured my life the way it is now.”

“And now?”

“And now I can’t picture it any other way.”

“You say the most romantic things.”

“Probably because you’re inspiring.”

“You’re inspiring me right now. Let’s get out of here.”

“People may talk. Lucius was already suspicious.”

“Let them talk, I don’t care.”

“Indeed. I find we’re in agreement. Come.”

LOL. Lovely! It's hilarious that Lucius managed to make them both jealous in one fell swoop. Harry is right though, they need to let people know they both are taken, so they can skip all these misunderstandings. Very romantic and funny, I enjoyed this little gem a great deal. :)

I don't think Malfoy was serious about making a move on Harry ... just stirring things up. :)
