Zach mentally wanted to smack himself hard. Harry had to have seen him kiss Ron good-bye. "Love, I was saying good-bye to Ron. He's seeing that dragon bloke. I'm all yours. You're who I want. I bonded with you, remember?" His eyes begged his lover to remember how much he cared about him.
Sighing, he accepted the change of subject. "Yes. They look quite happy."
Harry turned to Zach and sighed. "I'm sorry Zach," he said softly, "I've never belonged to anyone before that didn't want anyone else. I tried not to feel jealous when I saw you give Ron that kiss but I couldn't help it. I'm sorry I shouldn't have gotten mad at you."
Zach smiled gently as he ran a hand through Harry's hair. "To be honest, I've never had anyone care enough about me to be jealous... There's nothing to be sorry about, love. You're all that I want or need." He leaned into the warmth of Harry's side.
Harry saighed against Zach as he leaned in to him. He could get used to this. He finnally found some one who really and truely cared. That wanted him and only him in their life. Someone that he could truely trust with his hopes and fears, with his fantasies and desires.
Zach leaned over and kissed Harry on the forehead. He could get used to all of this closeness. The more he got to know about Harry, the more he liked. It wouldn't take much before he fell totally in love with him. Loving Harry didn't scare him at all.
"You're welcome, love. There's really nothing to thank me for, though. Let me know when you want to seak out of here. I'd just like to be able to dance with you and enjoy showing you off."
Harry wanted to tell Zach that they could leave now, but they were here to support Charlie and Lavender's new life.
"Eat, dance, fuck... In that order please," Harry whispered into Zach's ear as plates of food began appearing with soft pops. "Then I want to go and play in the Room of Requirement. Please Zach?" Harry asked softly.
He wanted to make one of Zach's fantasies come true.
Zach shuddered as his body reacted to Harry's words. Part of him wanted nothing more than to haul Harry out of his chair and somewhere private. The reception was important to him, though. He never got to do stuff like his when he was at Hogwarts, so he enjoyed the opportunity to show off his hot partner...
"That sounds perfect, love. I'll be looking forward to the later as well." His voice was shaky as he swallowed hard.
Zach dug into his meal hungrily. He knew he'd need his strength for later.
Harry ate slowly as he watched Zach shovel food into his mouth as if he wanted the make time move as fast as he was eating. He smiled and focused on the plate in front of him. He couldn't wait until dinner was over and he and Zach could slip out unnoticed. After their dance of course.
Zach sighed in relief as the band started to play. He picked up his glass and took a large gulp, choking when the whiskey burnt on the way down.
Slices of wedding cake appeared at each place setting. He ate a bite, his eyes widening in surprise as he tasted it. Usually it was dry, but this was absolutely delicious. His eyes closed as he savored every bite.
Life was good. It made him worry about what could go wrong next. He hated the thought of how fragile and new everything was, of the idea that someday Harry n=might just decide that he wasn't enough, wasn't good enough...
Zach smiled and gave Harry a tight hug. "Thank you. I guess that its easy for me to forget."
He nestled his head on Harry's shoulder and sighed contentedly. "I can't wait until you move in, love. I'm looking forward to letting you take care of me. As soon as the dancing starts, we can take a spin around the floor. Do you lead?"
Zach laughed and held close in his arms. "Well I'm sure you've improved since then, love."
He moved them expertly around the floor, dipping Harry at one point. "I happen to know that you're graceful in other places as well, love." He murmured in Harry's ear, "Especially when we're making love in bed..."
"We do have time for a trip before the autumn term starts," Harry replied with a smile when he was upright again. "I don't think that Snape could say much about it as long as we had our curriculum's ready in a couple of weeks, at least before the letters are due to go out at the end of the month."
Harry really liked the idea of traveling with Zach, to be alone with him and spend days on some remote beach soaking up the hot sun and walking by moonlight hand in hand.
Zach smiled and laughed happily. "A trip sounds wonderful, love. Sre you looking to go somewhere exotic and mysterious for adventure or a nice, warm, tropical private beach? Anywhere sounds perfect, as long as you're with me, love."
