Dec21, Harry Potter, Draco/Harry, In the Bleak Midwinter
Title: In the Bleak Midwinter
Fandom: Harry Potter
Note: Drabble written for strigoia for holiday 2007.
The minutes turn into hours as Draco sits alone in front of the fire. Harry should be here with him, but Harry isn't going to come. Their quarrels have worsened over the past months, and when Draco returned home yesterday it was to find Harry's things gone. There was no note, no message of any kind. Draco refuses to be the one who breaks down and pleads again. He has sent an owl to his parents, pleading illness, to avoid seeing them this Christmas Eve, and simply sits, turning the ring that Harry once gave him endlessly in his fingers.
