The boys finished their lunches, said goodbye to their friends and headed for Professor Dumbledore's office. They stepped up to the spiral staircase together after Harry told the gargoyle the password, and were both surprised to see Sirius and Remus sitting in the headmaster's office waiting on them.
Both men stood up when the boys walked in, and both looked confused. "I thought you boys despised each other?" Sirius asked.
"Ah, Sirius that's what we're here to discuss." Dumbledore said before Harry could think of anything to say. "Do let us sit down."
The headmaster conjured two chairs for the boys, identical to the ones Sirius and Remus were occupying and the boys sat down.
The headmaster began to explain the dilemma that both boys had come to him with, and the reasons that he had found for their problem. Harry took over from there explaining the weeks following their discovery and how they were now seeing each other. Draco sat quietly, waiting to be hexed or something.
Remus surprised them both by getting up and hugging Draco and then Harry. He congratulated them both, and asked when they were going to tie the knot.
"Slow down there Remy, they're not even of age yet." Sirius said, eyeing the boys, still unsure of what to think.
"Ah, Sirius, when a veela and his or her mate come together, they can marry whenever they choose, even if they are but 10 years old." Dumbledore said gently.
Harry saw the look on Sirius' face and assured them that they weren't even thinking that far ahead yet, so he'd have plenty of time to get used to the idea before they walked down the aisle.
"The reason that I called everyone here is because I'm going to move Harry and Draco into their own quarters at the base of Gryffindor tower. I have noticed the looks that they two have been getting, especially Draco from many of the members of Slytherin, and I don't wish any harm to either boy, so I think having their own dorm would be safer." Dumbledore explained.
Sirius started to protest but Dumbledore put up a hand to silence him. "There will be two regular dorm beds in the bedroom; the boys can sleep however they wish. I am not trying to push them to move their relationship along, I just wish for their safety. I'd hate to see one of them hexed in their sleep."
Remus put a hand on Sirius' arm. That and the speech from Dumbledore seemed to calm him, and he finally managed a smile for the boys. Dumbledore invited Remus and Sirius to stay in a guest suite for the night, and the men accepted.
Everyone got up to leave the room, Harry and Draco headed for their new dorm, having been told that their belongings were already moved for them, and Remus and Sirius followed.
They found the painting of a sleeping lion with a snake curled up beside of it, and gave it the password that Dumbledore had told them. When they entered they walked into their own private sitting room that was decorated in blue and silver. They walked to the door on the left side of the room and found a large bathroom with a giant tub and separate shower. The door to the right was their bedroom, and just as the headmaster had promised there were two dorm beds complete with curtains. One bed was done in green and silver and the other in red and gold. The walls were a neutral gray cinder block, as the walls in the dungeons were.
Sirius pulled Harry off to the side and asked him if he was really happy about this.
"I wasn't at first. I mean I thought 'ugh it's Malfoy,' but Drac's a pretty great guy once you get to know him. I am happy, Siri." Harry looked up at his godfather with hopeful eyes.
Those eyes always made Sirius' heart melt, and he wrapped his godson in a tight hug. "As long as you're happy, then I'm happy, ok cub?"
"Thanks Sirius." Harry said with a smile.
The two walked back to where Draco and Remus sat, and Sirius held out his hand, and shook Draco's when the platinum haired boy took it. "Take care of my godson. Hurt him and you'll wish I was kind enough to send you to the dementors."
"I'm kinda fond of him, so I promise you I'll take care of him," Draco said, looking Sirius in the eyes.
Remus pulled Sirius away, and out the door toward their own quarters, reminding him that they needed to let the boys settle in so that they could get to their next classes.
As the portrait swung shut, Draco wrapped his arms around Harry. "You know I meant what I told him. I am pretty fond of you, and I'll always take care of you. No matter what else happens in this world, I'll always take care of you."
Harry rested his head on Draco's shoulder. "It feels nice to know that someone wants to care about me. It's nice to hear it."
"Then I'll tell you every day."
