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?"

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?"

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.
