HP drabble: More Than Mere Hospitality [Harry/Neville, general]
Title: More Than Mere Hospitality Author: celandineb Fandom: HP Pairing: Harry/Neville Rating: general Summary: Harry's a guest at Neville's first party. Note: For coffee_n_cocoa who wanted Harry/Neville, eggnog.
"Wine punch? Hot buttered rum? Eggnog?" asked Neville.
Harry hadn't intended to come; his breakup with Ginny had left him bruised and unsocial, but Hermione and Ron had complained that they never saw him and it was Neville's first-ever party.
"Which do you recommend?"
"The eggnog is my gran's recipe."
"I'll try that, then."
Watching Neville ladle out the creamy drink, Harry had a vision of those hands caressing warm skin.
When Neville handed him the cup, their fingers brushed. Harry trembled. He dragged his gaze upward to meet Neville's, and to his surprise, found his own desire echoed there.
