All Alone On Christmas


Harry sat in his small flat, some inane rubbish on the TV merely background noise as he read the letter in his hands.


Merlin I miss you so much baby, I hate that I'm not going to be there this year, I can't believe I'm leaving you all alone for Christmas, but I hope you have as good a time as you can without my amazing self. I was so looking forward to seeing you, to be able to hold you after nearly five months. I'm not sure I can do this anymore, spending so much time out here in Egypt while you're there in England, letters and the odd fire-call just aren't enough anymore. I'm going to talk to Gringotts tomorrow, try and get a job over there instead if not I'll see if there's anything going in the ministry, anything just to be with you. I'll be back on the 29th so we'll still have New Year's together but damn I wish I was at home for Christmas, especially Christmas Eve, our anniversary. Four years baby, even with us living miles apart for most of the year. I'm really proud of us you know? Anyway there are three presents that came with this letter, have you got them? The little one's for our anniversary and the other two are for Christmas. I hope you like them and I'll see you on the 29th, we'll have our own little celebration then if you know what I mean. I love you, more than you could ever know.

Bill xxxx

Harry sighed and kissed the parchment where Bill signed it. This was the closest he'd been to his long-time boyfriend for nearly five months and it was starting to take its toll, but it wasn't Bill's fault, he knew that but he couldn't help feeling a little bit angry at the red-head for missing their anniversary and for missing Christmas with the rest of the Weasley family.

Harry was leaving later today for The Burrow and had already packed everything, including the presents he'd bought Bill. There was no way he could leave his love without anything to open on Christmas Day when he was so far away from his loved ones so he'd have to go and fish one out of his bag later on and send it over with his letter, but for now he would just enjoy the few moments of quiet before the storm that is Christmas with the Weasleys.

So there's the next instalment, this idea will be continued on the 29th so keep your eyes peeled. Comments and constuctive criticism greatly appreciated.
