Ron took the drinks from the barman with a grateful smile. "Thanks." It was a bit of a novelty having a bar in the Great Hall and Ron couldn't help but wonder if they could make it a permanent feature. For staff use only, of course.

Turning to take the drinks back to where Cho and John were talking, Ron came to a halt, completely unable to walk when Zach came over.

"Er, hi."

Zach flushed as he saw Ron. He placed his order at the bar and then turned toward the other man.

"Hello, Ron. I'm glad that you found what you're looking for." He looked over at the man from Charlie's bachelor party and back to Ron, keeping a smile on his face.

Ron was a little taken aback by what Zach said, but he nodded gratefully. "Thank you," he said gratefully, not just for what Zach had said but also for not getting pissed off that Ron had basically turned him down and he was still being polite.

"I'm guessing you found what you wanted, too." He glanced over at Harry. "Which probably means it would never have worked between us because... well, I'm nothing like Harry."

Zach smiled sadly. "No, you aren't but then I was attracted to you for a different reason, Ron. One has nothing to do with the other."

He took the glass of wine and one of firewhiskey from the bartender, giving him a large tip. "Part of me wishes that things could have been different, but in reality, you did me a great favor. Thank you for leaving me available for what may be the best thing to ever happen to me."

Zach gave Ron a kiss on the cheek. "You're a wonderful man, Ron Weasley. I wish you all of the best. I'm sure we'll be seeing quite a bit of each other, being that you and Harry are such good friends."

Ron nodded. "Good. It looks like things worked out for the best."

He blushed slightly when Zach kissed his cheek. "Yeah, we will. Although maybe not so much this summer. I'm thinking about doing a bit of travelling." A trip to Romania was almost definitely on the books.

Zach smiled at Ron and nodded. "I really think it did. Please don't be a stranger, Ron. I know how important you are to Harry."

He looked over at his table and his Harry. "I'd better be getting back. Safe travels, then. Take care of yourself." With that said, he walked away, anxious to get back to Harry.
