Harry entered the seedy pub and grimaced slightly. He'd been to worse places trying to find anything that compared to the night he had with hannah and Zach. He was hurt that niether one contacted him after that night.

A quick scan of the interior of the pub was all he needed to find several redheads clustered together. He started acrosss the pub and saw a very familiar blond standing woodenly just at the edge of the group with his eyes locked on to something that was obviously bothering him.

Harry made a quick decision and went up to Zach and pulled him into his arms and kissed him. His tongue slipped past Zach's surprised lips and he stroked Zach's tongue with his own. After a moment he released Zach and looked back to the group staring at them. Harry wrapped an arm around Zach's waist and pressed himself to the taller man's side.

"Hullo Charlie," he said with a grin, "Congratulations on finally tying the knot. Hullo Ron, long time."

Zach just stood there, in shock. The feeling of Harry's kiss and their night together were burned in his memories. He really wanted a relationship and it seemed like Ron wasn't interested or else didn't want him. Was it possible that Harry could be what he had been looking for all along?

After another few moments of thought, he leaned into Harry and whispered in his ear, "We need to talk later. But that has to be the nicest hello I've received in a long time." Zach blushed as he said it, his arm coming around Harry's waist as well.

Ron was admittedly a little relieved when Desi got her own seat, but he couldn't help but feel a flash of hurt when he saw Harry kiss Zach. Then again, Zach and Harry could kiss whoever the bloody hell they wanted. He hadn't exactly made a move on Zach, had he? Even with Zach's flirting he hadn't responded.

"Hey, Zach. Harry."

I'm fucked up, Ron thought, taking a long drink of his pint. Watching Zach with Harry, though, he was actually a little glad that he hadn't. Zach seemed to be the sort of person who wanted a proper relationship and Ron had never been good at relationships.

It was quite a relief to realise all this.

Sipping his drink and cast a glance at John. He'd be going back to Romania after the wedding. Hundreds of miles away. Ron frowned to himself as he thought about this. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

John had been watching all of this with mild amusement and finally turned to Ron.

"There I was thinking that reserve relationships were complicated. All this looks far too complicated to me - care to enlighten me on some of this tangled web?"

He satrted playing with the edge of his glass.

Ron sighed, tearing his eyes away from the sight of Harry and Zach. "I'm not sure I could untangle it," he admitted. "Not sure I want to."

A smile tugged at the corner of his lips. "Too many strings to sort out."

John looked up at Ron. "Maybe it needs more than one person to untangle the strings. No using chasing dragons on your own unless you have a death wish."

He saw that Ron's glass was empty. "Same again?" he asked as he squeezed out far closer to Ron than he needed to be.

"Maybe you're right."

Ron held his breath as John squeezed out from behind the table, his legs brushing against Ron's. "Uh, yeah." He paused for a moment, weighing up his options as he quickly glanced over at Harry and Zach.

"Actually, I'll come with you. I think Char needs another drink. Can't have the groom getting thirsty, can we?"

John heaved a faint sigh of relief. This was going well. They reached the bar and sent another drink over to Charlie who was busy mingling.

He leaned up against the bar and looked at ROn. "So will you be coming with Charlie when he next comes to Roamnia or will I have to talk you into it?"

Ron's lips curved into a smirk as he took his new drink. "Hmm. Maybe. Never been to Romania. Visited Bill in Egypt once, but that was years ago. Got forced into it by our parents." He laughed. "We tried to shut our brother Percy into a pyramid once."

He looked slyly at John. "And what would the benefits of going to Romania be? What would I have to look forward to?"

John fiddled with a stray cocktail stick and said "I can make sure the bedbugs didn't bite. I do a nice ittle line against bedbugs."

He gave Ron a sidelong look. "Of course, I could show you all the sights."

"I bet you do," Ron remarked taking a sip of his drink.

He grinned at John, enjoying the idea of flirting with someone and knowing that there would be no real repercussions because they'd both be going their separate ways in a week. "And what sort of sights did you have in mind?"
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: June 29th, 2006 08:20 pm (UTC) (Tags)
This was fun despite probably not lasting longer than a few weeks. These things happened and they weren't hurting anyone.

"Well, that would depend on what you would like to see. Some prefer appreciating the more natural sights."

He licked his lips. "Of course, there might not be time for sight seeing."

Ron considered this with a small smile. "I dunno. You're probably more knowledgeable than me," he said quietly.

He looked over at the table, frowning. "So who's bright idea was it to go to Spearmint Grindylows, then? Not exactly my scene." He eyed John. "Or yours, I'm guessing." Ron grinned. "It was Desi, wasn't it?"
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: June 29th, 2006 08:31 pm (UTC) (Tags)
John laughed. "It was Desi's idea but it's the sort of place that can be my place on the right day. Desi's as well." HE looked over at the table, following Ron's gaze.

"She's as safe as houses, that one," he said as he watched her plant a kiss on Billy's cheek.

"I'm glad you enjoyed it," Harry replied softly, as he let his fingers crawl under Zach's shirt to stroke the small strip of flesh that he'd uncovered.

Harry wondered what zach wanted to talk about. He caught a waitress' attention and ordered himself a drink. He sipped his drink while he surveyed the crowd around them.

Charlie nodded hello to Harry. "Nice to see you mate. Long time no see." He eyed where Harry's had was resting.

"Things have obviously been happening since I last saw you."

"Not as much as I'd like," Harry said with a wink, "Zach is hard to pin down some days if you know what I mean."

Harry shocked himself with the innuendo's spewing from his lips. He didn't know where they were coming from but he did know he was staking a claim of sorts.

Charlie threw back his head and roared with laughter. "So, there's pinning down on other days, is there?" he teased. "Lucky bastard."

He watched as Zach blushed faintly.

Zach blushed even redder and shook his head. "There really hasn't been much time up to now. I've been trying to get a large portion of my interviews finished and there was Ron before..." He looked down at his shoes before looking over at the bar where Ron and Charlie's friend were. "I guess that isn't an issue anymore, so I'm free."

It made Harry angry to see the hurt in Zach's face every time he looked in Ron's direction. Harry squeesed Zach a little tighter and looked up at him.

"We can go if you want," he whispered.

Zach signed and squared his shoulders. "No, its fine. I came to have a good time and to give Charlie a good send off into marriage. I had hints that Ron wasn't really interested and I chose to ignore them. I'll be fine."

He poured himself a full glass of firewhiskey and downed it in one large gulp. "I think I'm behind everyone else and I have some catching up to do..."

Harry hated throwing his weight around but he didn't want to be dragging Zach home pissed out of his mind. He grabbed Zach's glass and moved it out of reach.

"Charlie you have our best wishes but we shoud be going," Harry said, "We have alot to talk about. May you be blessed with a Weasley brood of your own and a lifetime of happiness."

He tightened his arms around Zach and apparated them both out of the pub.

Charlue said "Thank you." He looked at Zach and back at Harry. "And if it means anything, I don't think Ron meant to hurt you."

"Will I see you both at the wedding?"
freelance_wzrd From: freelance_wzrd Date: June 29th, 2006 08:20 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Zach nodded, "You and Lavender have my best as well, Charlie. Really, its alright. Ron needs to do what's best for him. Everything is fine, no hard feelings. I'll be there."

Before he could say anything else, Harry's arms were wrapped around him and the pub was vanishing...
