She would have said that he would have seen the fire in those gray eyes. Well, he had seen it. That still did not answer his question.

Why was Draco kissing him in the middle of the corridor for everyone to see? Why was he not pushing the man, who was supposed to be his nemesis, off of him? Why was he letting him kiss him in the first place?
