The Art of Letting Go – Harry Potter was getting married to Ginny Weasley. But how come his gaze keeps flickering to the blonde watching him swear his life to another person? And how come it hurts so much when he thinks about the past and what he could have had? HP/DM pairing.

The last chapter.
Chapter IV – Last Shot
What followed after was a chain of events that none of them had ever thought could actually happen.
Draco shook his head minutely and gave a sad smile. No one expected what would happen to him and Harry.
But then again, no one knew at all.
Draco looked at the tanned, muscular back of his lover and secret boyfriend, Harry Potter.
Harry was currently changing back into his robes, as Draco lounged back in the bed at the Room of Requirement, currently enjoying the view.
He was reminiscing the time where he finally admitted to himself that he indeed liked Potter more than as an enemy – and even more than just a friend. What followed was his pursuit of the Golden Boy, and to his immediate surprise, the hero happened to like him to.
The rush of events that happened soon after consisted of several lust filled sessions, hidden kisses, broom closets, and the floor of the Astronomy tower.
He sighed, smiling at the memories, and continued staring at Harry. Damn it if he was already falling in love with the Gryffindor idiot. He fished his camera from under the bed, and positioned it so he could take a picture of Harry.
"Hey," he called softly, and Harry turned around, "I think I'm falling in love with you."
He snapped the picture, and saw Harry's surprised and remorseful expression reflect at him from the camera's screen.
"What?" Harry asked, incredulous.
"I said I think I'm falling for you, Golden Boy. But I believe your thick skull can't handle that much information," he answered meanly, trying to cover up the small amount of hurt that he felt as he saw Harry's reaction.
"But what, Potter?"
"But you can't, Draco," he whispered brokenly.
"What do you mean I can't? I've been sleeping with you, helping you, joining the light side for you, and I'm your damn BOYFRIEND! Why the bloody hell can't I be falling for you?" he shouted, albeit a bit loudly, losing some of his Malfoy composure.
"You can't because," Harry's voice choked up, and he looked down.
"Because what Harry? And look at me when you're talking."
"Because I'm getting married to Ginny, Draco."
End of Flashback.
He looked back at the Minister of Magic and heard him say those last words,
"Harry Potter and now, Ginevra Potter, I now pronounce you man and wife!"
Everyone stood and clapped, the Weasleys and Granger being the loudest of them all.
All of them were smiling, yet no one noticed that he was there amongst them, crying inside.
"You may now kiss the bride!"
Catcalls and cheers erupted all around him, as Harry leaned down to kiss the person he would be with for the rest of his life.
Someone that he wasn't.
He smiled his sad smile again, hoping Harry could see him.
And he did.
Green eyes locked on grey, and Draco once again felt the traitorous love consume him, even as Harry leaned down to kiss Ginny.
Their lips met.
It was the perfect heartbreak.
Harry was no longer his.
So he took the last shot,
It was Harry's last request anyway, for him to be the photographer. And for the love of bloody Merlin, he couldn't say no.
He could never say no.
Not to Harry.
Grey met green once again, and Draco mouthed, Goodbye.
A tear fell down his eye.
And Draco Malfoy walked away.
