1 | 2 | 3 | 4
To distract himself while the biscuits cooled, Teddy pulled out the eggnog. Perhaps the Malfoys would appreciate having some?
"Do you like eggnog?" Teddy asked.
Scorpius was still lingering near the pan of gingerbread, and looked up at the question. "Hm?" He turned, and Teddy felt another flutter in his at chest the sparkle in his eyes. "Oh…well…depends how much rum is in it, I suppose…"
Teddy turned away again, willing himself not to react to whatever was going on inside him. Scorpius was too young for him anyway. "We have non-alcoholic. Gran can't handle it like she used to…"
"Oh…" Teddy felt a rush of warmth when Scorpius moved to stand beside him. "Well…grandmother might take one. And me." He smiled. "And perhaps father as well." He paused for a moment, thinking, looking a bit worried. "When are the Potters expected?"
The Potters. How could he have forgotten that they were due to arrive at any moment? That wouldn't go over too well. Harry and Scorpius's father still didn't get on too well. "Um…well…they're usually a bit late…Lily always takes too much time getting ready, and James…" He frowned. "I guess he'll be coming on his own, this year."
James had just moved into his own flat, despite his mother's disapproval. Teddy thought it would be good for him, though. He needed a bit more responsibility in his life. Not that he was likely to get that, working with his uncle George, but still, it was a start.
Scorpius looked worried. "Maybe…we should just get going…"
Teddy shook his head. "Nonsense. You're family. Harry knows that." Even if he didn't like Malfoy, he'd still be pleased Narcissa was trying to reconcile. "We'll bring in a tray. If they don't want it, they don't have to have any," he said.
The smile Scorpius sent him brought him up short. Teddy had never thought of a bloke as beautiful before. Even those he thought attractive in the past. Handsome, sure, but Scorpius had a whole different quality. It was distracting enough that Teddy had to shake his head to get his mind back on the subject at hand.
"Can you pour while I serve up the gingerbread?" He put cups on the tray, then glanced at Scorpius.
"Of course," Scorpius said, still smiling.
Teddy watched for a moment as Scorpius began to pour the liquid, then turned to get the gingerbread.
