Harry laughed and leaned forward to capture the other boy's lips. When they were millimeters apart, the door burst open. Hermione stood their gasping for breath.

"Harry, Draco, Lucius Malfoy escaped from Azkaban today and he said that he is coming to kill you both," she said.

"What do you mean?" Draco demanded.

"I mean exactly that. He left a note in his cell that said he was coming to Hogwarts to kill you both.

"Dumbledore sent all of the students back to their dormitories and told me to come and get you two and bring you to his office. I don't really see why they are making such a big deal out of this, he can't get into Hogwarts."

"Oh yeah," Draco said sarcastically. "My father is only trying to kill us."

"That is a big deal, but how is he supposed to get here? He doesn't have a wand, so he can't apparate into Hogsmeade and he doesn't have a broom, so how can he fly here? Besides, how is he going to get onto Hogwarts grounds?" Hermione asked.

Draco looked down sheepishly and shrugged his shoulders. He looked at Harry out of the corner of his eye and saw that he was trying to hold back a laugh.

"What are you so happy about Potter?" Hermione snapped.

Harry grinned and said, "I was just hoping that this would be the year where no one is trying to kill me. Alas, it was only a dream." He laughed and continued. "Voldemort is finally dead and all of his death eaters are put away for life and then one, who is my boyfriend's father, just happens to break out and threatens to kill me. Oh happy days."

The last line he sang quietly. He looked at the other two occupants in the room and told them that they should go to Professor Dumbledore's office. They agreed and they all walked up there in silence.

Hermione said "sugar quills" when they got to the statue.

"I'm going to head back to the common room now. I'll see you there in a little while Harry. Bye guys, and good luck."

Harry and Draco said their farewells to her and then proceeded up the steps. The office door was open and they walked through it.

"Hello Harry, hello Draco. How are you boys today? I'm quite good in fact. Now, I'm going to get down to it now so you don't explode."

He smiled at them before continuing. "I can assume that Hermione told you about Lucius so I don't really need to tell you about that. What we need to discuss is what we are going to do about the situation.

"Neither of you will be able to go into Hogsmeade or have classes outside until he is found. During those times, you are welcome to spend it in the great hall, library, or anywhere else you can find that is suitable. I know that it might not seem fair, but I think it's the best thing that we can come up with at the moment.

"I've spoken with Professor McGonagall and Professor Snape, and they both have different views on this subject. Minerva thinks that it would be best if you both stay in your own dormitories and Severus thinks that you should have your own rooms. I've thought about it and I think that it would be best if you both use the old head of house chambers in Gryffindor Tower for your sleeping arrangements."

Draco cocked his head to the side, thoroughly confused.

"Why can't we stay in the Slytherin Dungeon?" he asked.

"Some of the students with death eater parents could be in league with Lucius and we want the most safety for the two of you. I'm in no way saying that the Slytherins are dangerous to the two of you, I'm just saying that it could be a possibility. We all want what's best for our students and if it means that they have to share a room together in Gryffindor Tower, then so be it."

"What about my stuff?" Draco asked.

"It has already been moved. Now the room that you two will be staying in has already been situated for the two of you and if there is anything that you need, come and find me," Dumbledore answered.

"Okay," Harry said. "Where is this room anyway?"

"You know how there are stairs going to the boys dorms and the girls dorms?"

Harry nodded.

"Between those doors is a portrait of boy your age. The password right now is 'shadows'."

"Thank you sir," Draco and Harry said together.

"Your welcome boys. Have a good evening. If you have any problems, tell one of the portraits and they will find a way to help you."

Harry and Draco nodded their heads and said goodbye to their headmaster. They walked out of the office and Harry led Draco to their new home.

Once they reached the portrait of the fat lady Harry said the password ("Quidditch") and led Draco into the common room.

Harry looked at Draco to see his reaction and he found that his boyfriend was smiling.

"What is so amusing to you?" Harry asked.

"This place is very homey looking. I like it. The Slytherin common room is so boring and formal. This place is very welcoming even if it is a bit ratty."

"Well you're going to have to learn to live with it, now that you are going to be staying here," Harry said.

They found the portrait and Draco said "shadows" and it opened up to reveal a cozy looking room with two desks, two chairs; one red and one green, and a long couch in front of a fireplace. Draco sat down on the couch and laid his head back on the arm rest.

"This is quite the place, if I do say so myself. It's not at all like Malfoy Manor, but if it means that I get to share it with you, it's good enough for me," Draco said, gazing up at his boyfriend with lustful eyes.

Harry pulled Draco off of the couch so they could look at the rest of their new home. The next room that they came into was the bedroom. There were two huge four post bed, both with black hangings. Their trunks were sitting at the ends of each bed and there were also two dressers that were already packed with their clothes.

There was a walk in closet which held their dressing gowns and other garments.

Draco pulled Harry into the next room which happened to be the bathroom. There were two sinks, both with their names engraved onto them. The tub was enormous. It probably could fit up to ten people in it and even then it wouldn't be crowded. There was a shower stall next to it that had a glass door and a silver handle.

"We are definitely going to have some fun in here," Draco declared.

"You think way to highly of yourself. Whatever made you think that I would do any of those kind of things with you, and in the bathroom of all places," Harry grinned.

Draco smiled at him and said, "I was talking about having water fights Harry. What on earth has gotten into your mind? All you ever think about is sex."

Draco mock cried into his hands and Harry smacked him on the arm.

"Cut it out you big baby. And for your information, you are the one to make me keep thinking about sex. So it's all your fault."

Draco stopped smiling and Harry frowned.

"Draco what's wrong..."

Draco pulled him forward and kissed him soundly on the lips.

Harry pulled back and said, "you're going pay for that one. I thought something was actually wrong."

Draco grinned. "But you look so cute when you worry. Come on, let go and see if we can find anything to liven this place up a bit."

Harry allowed his boyfriend to pull him into the common room and was immediately bombarded by questions from Hermione.

"What did Dumbledore have to say to you?" she asked.

"He just told us that we're not allowed outside or into Hogsmeade until they can figure out what to do. It's okay though, we can find things to do here," Harry answered.

Hermione was about to say something but the portrait opened and Professor McGonagall came in and walked up to them.

"What's wrong professor?" Draco asked.

"I'm sorry to inform you, but your father is here at the gates Draco and he is demanding that you and Harry go out there and talk to him."

"What?" Hermione yelled.

"There is something else."

The three students looked up at her, waiting to hear the inevitable answer. The Gryffindor head of house looked down and her shoes, then back up at her students.

"He has an army of people with him."
