"You don't have to look so terrified," Potter said to Malfoy as they walked in the garden behind the manor. It was, in fact, a beautiful day out. If Potter hadn't shown up to his house, Draco was probably going to spend his day indoors reading.

Not that he was now going to thank Potter for this suggestion or anything.

"I'm not terrified," Draco said frowning. "It's a nice day. I wondered if I needed—"

And without a word, Potter placed the sunblock charm on Draco. "Don't want you to harm that beautiful skin of yours. Not until I've seen it all for myself, that is."

Draco shook his head. "You're quite crass. Are you aware of this? It isn't polite to suggest such intimacy only after one date."

"Ah, so we are admitting it was a date."

Draco made a face as he'd not intended to refer to last evening as a date but the words had escaped him before he knew what he was doing or saying. Then, Potter reached over and took Draco's hand in his.

"I'd like to try to have better behaviour for our second date."

"This your way of telling me there will be a second date?" Draco said, challenging. "You think I'd agree?"

Potter smiled and they stopped walking. With Potter face-to-face with him, and his hands in Potter's, Draco knew escape wasn't possible.

"It's my way of asking you out for a second date. And I hope you'll agree." Potter bit his lower lip, looking more nervous than Draco'd ever seen him before. "I have a picnic planned, by the way. If you were curious to what we were going to do tonight."

"Tonight?" Draco asked, surprised.

"It'll be a nice night. So a picnic and wine…that sounds good, doesn't it?"
