Study Time


It was a pleasantly warm day near the end of the year. Finals were right around the corner, but still children could be seen playing out on the grounds. In a secluded little area between some bushes and a pine tree sat the secretive couple of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. Harry laid on his back with his head in the blond's lap while Draco helped him study for final exams.

"Alright Harry, what is the most powerful love potion in the world?" Draco asked him.

"Amortentia," Harry answered. Draco smiled down at him, nodding.

"Ok, what is the colorless odorless potion that forces the drinker to tell the truth?" the blond asked.

"Veritaserum of course," the boy said, "You're giving me easy ones on purpose."

"Alright, alright," Draco responded, "What counteracts the effects of the Euphoria Elixir?"

Harry paused, obviously stumped.

"Umm…. Ummm…eye of newt?" Harry asked. Draco looked down at him with a slightly disgusted look. He closed his notes.

"You've been reading Muggle books again haven't you?" he asked, "How often do we actually use eye of newt Potter?"

"Not very often… but it's supposed to clear the mind so I thought maybe…"Harry was cut off.

"Pure Muggle speculation. Eye of newt makes a better garnish than anything else. It's a sprig of mint Harry," the pure blood said shaking his head. Harry pouted a little bit.

"I'm sorry…" he said softly. Draco shook his head, running his finger over the lightning shaped scar. In seconds, Harry leaned up and kissed his Slytherin lover. Draco blinked, but he didn't mind.

"Thanks for helping me with Potions…" the boy mumbled.

"I'd take any excuse to have you to myself," Draco whispered back.
