Love and Anger

Work Text:

“Merlin, Potter,” Draco said, voice hoarse. “I can’t do this any longer. Fuck. I thought I'd lost you during that damned raid. You must know that I love you. Have done for ages.”

“I know,” Harry sheepishly admitted, wincing as the familiar agony of Skele-Gro knitted his bones back together. “The feeling’s mutual, Malfoy.”

Draco flushed, joy fighting with irritation. “So sorry I’m late for this conversation. Why didn’t you say anything? Spare me my misery?”

“Knowing would have made you vulnerable,” Harry replied. “Took your eyes off the fight. You’re far too important to me to risk your safety.”
