HP ficlet: Hot [Draco/Harry, general]
Rating: general (but innuendo)
Length: 260 words
Summary: When Harry complains about the heat, Draco has an idea of how to cool him off.
Note: For sassy_cissa, who wanted Harry/Draco, "sweltering".
"This room is positively sweating," Harry grumbled, using the previous week's copy of the Quibbler to fan himself. He pulled up his t-shirt so that the breeze could reach more skin.
"Sweltering," Draco corrected him absently as he filled in an answer on his crossword puzzle. "You are sweating, the room is sweltering. Although you could be sweltering too, I suppose."
"The point is, it's hot."
Harry's voice had grown louder. Draco looked up. Harry had a petulant expression on his face, but his sweaty bare chest was more inviting than his expression was off-putting.
"I can cool you off," Draco offered.
"How? We've both cast all the cooling charms we know, and they've hardly made a difference." Harry scowled.
Draco put aside the Daily Prophet and stood up. "Come on." He led Harry to their bedroom.
Very shortly they were both naked. Harry stretched out on the sheet that was the only covering on the bed, in this weather.
"This is cooler," he admitted, "but still pretty warm."
Draco pulled a silk scarf out of a bureau drawer and tied it around Harry's eyes. "Just wait a minute."
He slipped out to the kitchen and put a dozen ice cubes in a bowl, using a tea towel underneath them so Harry wouldn't hear the telltale rattle. Harry was sweating and fanning himself with his hand when Draco returned.
Ice, they found, could be heating in its own way. By the time the last of it had melted, both of them were quite warm indeed, but even Harry wasn't complaining.
