Draco woke up with a stiff neck, almost forgetting where he was. After seeing Potter off to Mexico with a few of his Auror friends, Draco, Teddy, and Andromeda when to Andromeda's house. Draco ended up sleeping on the sofa as he was keeping Teddy company well into the night and Teddy insisted he wanted to have breakfast together.

It'd been a taxing few days to say the least. He had done the last thing he'd ever thought possible. He'd expressed his feelings to Potter who had smiled at him in a way -- it made Draco think anything was possible.

Still, trying to forget everything and having a fun day with Teddy, Draco opened up the newspaper while Andromeda fussed over them. He read several announcements of Christmas babies being born and how some people were trying to hold onto the New Year until giving birth.

Draco wanted to roll his eyes but stopped himself. It was something his old self would have done, now, he could hear Potter's voice, telling him to be kind. So he decided to tell his aunt all about the birth announcements and she in turn, gossiped about the old families mentioned in them.

All in all, it was a good day.

After breakfast and before Draco took his leave, Teddy said he had a present for Draco. He ran into his room and then ran right back out to give Draco a box. When Draco opened it, he wanted to groan. It was nothing but an exact replica of the tiny dragon Teddy liked to drag around with him for the past few years.

"Uncle Harry said since it's your favourite dragon, you can have one too."

"Of course," replied Draco.

Even in his bloody absence, Potter needed to have the last laugh.
