"Draco, your hands are colder than a snowball…" Potter whispered in Draco's ear as Draco stirred in bed.

"Mmm…" Draco moaned. "Not again," he said and turned in bed but the hands on him felt firm.

"Not what again?" Potter's voice whispered again, his hot breath on Draco's skin.

"Go away, Potter. I'm tired of dreaming—"

"You dream about me?"

Draco arched his back and his body molded into Potter's. This dream felt more real than the others. "Just don't leave me tonight…" Draco mumbled and fell asleep again.

"I'm not a dream, sweetheart."

When Draco woke up in the morning, he realised there was someone in bed next to him.

"What…" He almost gasped when he realised Potter was next to him. Was this still a dream? Or had he travelled back in time without realising it?

"Hey, you're awake," Potter said, pulling Draco close to him. "So tell me about these dreams of yours."

"Potter, what are you doing here?"

"It's New Year's Eve," Potter said, "well, day but it's New Year's Eve tonight."


"And, I'm here to spend it with you."

"What about…Mexico?"

"Believe it or not, they give us the evening off," Potter said with a chuckle. "We were all required to settle in, get to know our fellow students and then we have two days off before starting the actual training. Many of my classmates went back home to spend time with their friends and family, so I came to see you."

"How did you—" Draco realised he never changed the spells for his home for Potter. He had raised the wards for the night before when Potter was leaving but he hadn't changed the magic. The wards recognised him and allowed him in.

"Are you seeing your friends and fam—"

"No. I'm here to see you."

"And what else?" Draco asked.

"What do you mean?"

"There has to be a catch, Potter. You won't just show up back here for two days, allow us to torture each other, and then what? Leave again?"

Potter laughed. "And here I didn't think you knew anything about me," he said. "You've started to get to know me well, Draco."

"What's the catch, Potter?" Draco asked.

Potter pulled him closer still, wrapped his legs around Draco's waist and kissed his nose. "Let's enjoy this for now, and then I'll tell you my crazy ideas later?"

Draco decided to drop the subject for the moment. He kissed Potter, glad to have the man in his arms and it not be a dream, and then eventually dragged him into the shower with him.
