Disclaimer: watches herself transform back into her normal body Damn… sigh Not mine anymore besides if I owned this then it would not be a children's book.

"Good morning everyone!" Seamus called from the doorway waving at the whole student population in enthusiastic bursts of movement. Several good mornings could be heard in answer to his greeting."Tell us who won!" Finally a brave young Ravenclaw yelled. His outburst was supported by many assenting noises and movements from those amassed."I thought I would wait until after we ate." Seamus ducked as biscuits, buttered and not, came flying his way. "Fine! Fine I…" Hermione jabbed him with her elbow. "Erm,... We will now announce the winner of our little contest!""Would Draco Malfoy please join us?" Hermione's polite request had the place stunned. Draco glanced at the four standing in front of the door warily. Curious whispers streamed through the tables. Slowly the Slytherin stood and sauntered over to the group. His silver eyes gazed calmly at the instigators of this inane competition."Get on with it." Draco's voice cut through the room like quicksilver."It was a close running. Hermione and I counted the votes twice just to make sure our numbers were correct.""The winner, who gets the prestigious spot of second place, is…Harry Potter!" Again Hermione's statement had an enormous effect on those gathered. The crowd went crazy and only Draco, Harry and Hermione noticed Ron go very pale."The loser, Ron Weasley, now is obligated to…kiss Draco Malfoy!" Finally Seamus got to announce something shocking. Absolute silence. Draco's eyes widened until you could see the white around the gray."Kiss me? That is what this is all about?" Angry murmurs ran through the students as they realized that most of them voted for Harry wanting him to win which made them realize that they just missed the chance of a lifetime to make Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy kiss.Thud.
A sickening sound in the best of situations was even worse now as Ron's skull came in contact with the cold stone of the floor. Hermione was with him in an instant levitating him and rushing him to the hospital wing."Well I guess that means Harry has to kiss Malfoy!" An anonymous shout had the students smiling with delight. A slow steady chant of, "Kiss him." Became the only sound heard in the Great Hall. Harry's eyes locked with Draco's and both boys were pushed closer together.As if in a dream Harry reached out and stroked the blonde's pale cheek stopping his fingers at Draco's chin tilting his head up. Harry inched closer to the pale pink of Draco's mouth. A hushed silence calmed the crowd. Draco flicked his tongue over his lips unable to tear his eyes away from the emerald they were drowning in.Five inches, four, three, two. One. Harry was almost there. He summoned up the dregs of his Gryffindor courage. A slight hesitation before the fiercest determination swamped his eyes. He closed the distance between Slytherin and Gryffindor in one swift movement. Harry had intended it to be a quick swipe of lip upon lip.Unfortunately things don't happen as we intend them. He could not think of one good reason why he should remove his lips from Draco's. His soul was joined. He was content. Harry felt arms wrap around him and he responded in kind. Neither Harry nor Draco noticed the raucous cheering and flashings from cameras and image capturing spells. The last coherent thought he had was simply, "What took us so long?"A/N: That is it. I hope you enjoyed it.
