Mr. Obnoxious and Mr. Bossy
Dialogue Prompt No.2- " Try not to die " request by @everlydream | Sorry for taking too long| Fluff ( sort of )
“So i got a new mission report “ harry fake grinned in success as he entered his shared office room
“ oh is that so, what’s it about this time, missing cat?”draco raised an eyebrow at Harry in a returned sarcasm
“ oh no, no, that is your department, if i end up taking your work you’d be unemployed “harry tilted his head to the side with narrowed eyes and a fake smile
“ Well at least I don't steal credit, “ Draco rolled his eyes. Harry immediately reduced the distance between them, snapping his hand over the desk “ i did not steal the credit, he just happened to credit me for it “
“ And you didn’t deny, that is stealing the credit “ Draco taunted.
“ whatever you want to believe, i know the truth “ harry flatly replied
“ Yeah, like you stole my credit, “ Draco taunted again. Harry sneered at him, blabbering gibberish in the childlike argument. Draco chuckled as soon as Harry left the room with his case report file,mumbling to himself as an old lady.
They were enemies, of course, the one’s that had unknowingly been pining each other over for years and were obviously unaware of any said feelings and pretended every time that their hearts didn’t race whenever other entred the room, but every single one of their friends knew and had even tried teasing them about it but had always stayed in a state of denial. But then at the end, they weren’t enemies at all, they were just two oblivious people attracted to their so called nemesis.
As the days went on harry’s case report became more dense and called more for his attention, his time, resulting in him hardly spending time in his office and as much Draco enjoyed having the shared office room to himself, he kind of waited for harry to walk into the office and have the tiniest of arguments but that didn’t happen; Draco pretended he was fine with everything and proudly told everyone how much he enjoyed not having harry being a pain in the ass. Pity what the actual truth was. He could almost get used to not having Harry around once he gets the promotion he was bound to have but he found himself slightly displeased with the inevitable fact, it was almost as if he enjoyed having Harry around and rolling his eyes at him if he was ever clumsy and tease him for being the chosen one, he enjoyed the little quips every once in a while even when he didn't mention it to Harry. It was almost like he came to the office everyday just so he could pull Harry’s leg but ever since the case report, he had entered to a very lonesome office and he found himself staring into space a lot and more frequently at harry’s unused desk. He wondered if that’s what’d it be like once Harry actually gets promoted, whether he’d visit him casually or would he just be situated in the other wing of the office that he’d only pass by Draco’s wing if he ever needed a junior to talk to or get to the shitty canteen and if he’d ever come to tease Draco or not. It was sort of empty in the office since his report and he had not so subtly asked some colleague about harry’s whereabouts and learnt that he stayed more in the field and would disperse home as soon as his work was done. It sort of made Draco furious and he didn’t understand why, even if the answer was right there inside of him but was dodging off the truth because he was either too scared of it or he felt that it was unethical. He also learnt that harry started remaining in the other side of the office building because of the library a lot and old case reports office because he needed old files and Draco only wished to see Harry again, even if it was an eye roll, to him it’d be a relief to know that his unknown ritual of rivalry wasn’t all broken even when it recently felt forgotten. Draco was upset about it even if he didn’t admit it to anyone or even to himself but he most definitely was.
Upset and frustrated, he found himself not so subtly lurking around the library for 3 days just so he’d see harry even if he internally hated himself for it, he just reminded himself over and over again that he wanted to see that stupid round glasses idiotic prat, just once and so with not so much success he finally ran into harry.
What he didn’t expect though was harry to just offer a smile and pass by him swiftly into another section of the library. Draco was planted with shock as he watched harry busying himself in the other section, it was almost too frustrating that without having a trail of any thoughts, he stomped behind Harry into the aisle he was in.
“ Already sucking up people’s ass for promotion ?” Draco crossed his arms in front of his chest watching harry’s face turn into an amused reaction.
“um, excuse me but what i’m doing is called working so i can actually take credit for my own work, also, yeah i talked with Jenna, she’s gonna credit you for the Simmon’s case “ harry genuinely smiled at Draco then again dug into his works.
Draco huffed annoyingly as he took a few steps closer to harry.
“ Since you’re still standing I’m assuming you need something from me ?” harry raised his eyebrows at him.
“Well- if you had to be stuck with being a two goody shoes, you could’ve cleaned up your desk, its an absolute mess and its driving me crazy and i wouldn’t do it for you and you know that “ Draco rolled his eyes accusing him with pointed finger.
Harry smiled amused before he nodded “ i’d stop by the office after hours and clean it up if its such a mess “
Draco chewed the inside of his cheeks “ that’s be great “
“Okay “ Harry replied and went back to reading again whilst Draco almost turned around to go back when he shut his eyes and turned around with a whip.
“ And i also want don’t want your favor in getting the credit. I can get credit for my own self, i don’t need your help”
Harry frowned “ Okay then “
Draco watched as Harry again went back to reading and he wanted to go back but his feet were as if fixated to the place and he didn’t feel as if he was quite done just yet, so he spoke again “ and one of my file is missing, so you better check in your pile of mess and return it back to me”
Harry frowned again, sighing this time “ i said i’ll clean, alright. What’s the name of the file ?”
Draco froze trying to think of how to reply to his made up lie that would seem true enough so Harry wouldn’t figure out the actual reason he was here.
“ It’s uh- the file with- Amrontentia side effects “
“ You really need it? It’s a pretty old file, don’t you think?” Harry countered
“Yes- but I need it to sort my files in alphabetical order “ Draco stuttered.
Harry nodded " fine, If I find it, I'll give it to you "
And Harry was almost back into his reading when Draco interrupted him yet again that Harry shut his book and arrogantly looked at Draco " you done or is there more to your life I've somehow messed up ?"
Draco frowned almost wanting to tell him another lie but instead what came out was "you've stopped coming to the office "
Harry blinked his eyes shut before he reopened them again " and that is a problem because ?"
" be-because of the- because it's occupying a space for someone who might actually use it" Draco lied
" Fine, I'll change my office then, that's what you want ?" Harry sighed
" no " Draco immediately denied
" Then what is it that you want because you're clearly just standing here making up a bunch of bullshit " Harry frowned at Draco holding an expression of inability to gather Draco's intentions.
"I- " Draco swallowed " it bothers me that you stopped coming to the office, it's just empty"
" it's not Empty Draco, there's you-"
" yes, but there isn't you " Draco slumped down a little bit in exaggeration.
Harry frowned at Draco until his confusion turned into a soft laugh " And you have a problem with me not being there, thought you Always wanted me out "
" Well, yes but- I don't know. I just- it's empty and I sort of hate it being Empty because then I have no one to taunt to about the mess because you're not damning there " Draco sighed frustratingly
"Wow, I did not know it bothered you so much, guess I'll try to come and stop by then,whenever you're in the office then " Harry smiled amusingly at Draco.
Draco rolled his eyes " yeah, sure that's what I want. I don't know even know why I tried "
He had turned around to walk away when he pulled by the back of his shirt, almost collapsing into Harry's chest.
" You miss me then " Harry teased now facing Draco.
" I don't miss you, I just dislike that your obnoxious ass isn't in the office room anymore " Draco rolled his eyes to hide the faint blush of embarrassment hitting him.
" isn't that just a fancy sentence to say you missed me ?" Harry teased,again, this time stepping closer to Draco but enough to maintain the distance.
" I didn't miss you "
" you're blushing Draco, of course you missed me " Harry chuckled
" I'm not blushing " but he so was.
" come on, you lurked around here for 3 days so you could find me. Admit it Draco you missed me " harry laughed.
Draco swallowed the inside of his cheeks to keep himself from forming a smile and posing an eye roll again to lie " I did not lurk so I could find you, I just happened to be here- because I needed a book. So Harry James Potter, I did not miss you "
" You just used my entire name, you only do that when you're lying-"
" I do not " Draco narrowed his eyes
" Yes you do. You do that when you're lying to me " Harry grinned
"Fine, whatever you want to believe " Draco shrugged, his back hitting the shelf behind him as he crossed his arms in front.
" Oh yes, I do believe you missed me, you just don't want to admit it that you missed me " Harry pointed
" I did not- Merlin, I did not miss you-"
" it's okay Draco-"
" but I did not miss you " Draco snapped lightly
" then why are you here ?" Harry asked raising his eyebrows knowing Draco was lying
" because of all the reasons I told you before " Draco emphasised.
Harry looked at Draco for a couple of moments before he stepped back, his hand defensively raised in the air as he shrugged "Alright then, I'll sort those things out "
" yes, you do that and we're sorted " Draco agreed. Harry nodded in head in agreement and placed the book back in the shelf leaving Draco alone to walk away or just silently be there watching harry.
In his humongous ego, he had almost walked off but he wanted to say one last time " just for the record I didn't miss you"
" alright, I know that now " harry shrugged.
" good " draco bobbed his head in confusion of how easily he dropped off the topic and decided to walk when something didn't feel right and he Walked back to harry.
" I really didn't miss you " Draco furrowed his eyebrows at harry as he was scanning the shelf for another book.
" yeah, I know that " Harry nodded.
" yes, I didn't-"
" Draco if you keep telling me the same thing over and over again, I'm pretty sure I'll assume you want to kiss me " Harry smirked.
Draco's mouth dropped open in exasperation as he said " I do not " but the blush that rose up in his cheeks was very much evident.
" alright " harry smirked, nodding at him and this time turning to face Draco " kiss me then and prove me that you don't want to "
" what? That's just- absurd- I don't want to kiss you " Draco replied in mocked shock not being able to believe that Harry had said something like that.
"Seems otherwise " Harry shrugged.
" what- no- you know what, I will prove you then that I so did not very much wanted to kiss you " Draco replied with each step taking closer to him and stood just before him, grabbed his collar and kissed him over the lips.
" there, I proved you, I didn't want to kiss you" Draco breathlessly replied after the kiss.
" seems like you wanted to otherwise you would not have kissed me " Harry smirked
" You just-nmph-" but the words were forgotten as this time harry leaned in and kissed Draco like he had always imagined it to be like. It wasn't chaste or soft or hard or rough, it was perfect as it was, appropriate and comforting. It was what it had to be and what they'd always imagined it'd be like yet it left them utterly breathless as minute by minute it grew more rushed and harder with Harry's hand against Draco's back pulling him closer and Draco's still loosely rested on his collar.
In erratic breathing when they separated, Draco immediately pressed his head against harry's neck, blushing furiously and faint smile pressed upon his lips.
" Seemed otherwise didn't it " harry mumbled with a smile.
" yo- you're still obnoxious " Draco replied putting his head from Harry's neck and looking at him with a smile.
" you're still bossy " Harry countered.
Draco rolled his eye but for once it didn't matter. It Didn't matter what quip it was or how sarcastic it was, the only thing that mattered was he finally kissed Harry.
" my case ends in a couple days, you can stop missing me then and I have field work tomorrow " Harry teased, his hand still around Draco's waist.
Draco rolled his eyes " Try not to die "
Harry chuckled a little too loudly in the silent library that Draco had to put his hand over his lips to shut him up.
" and you wonder why I hate you " Draco whispered rolling his eyes playfully.
" you don't hate me, you just kissed me " Harry whispered back grinning.
" if you're gonna boast about it, then we definitely shouldn't do this " Draco raised his eyeballs at Harry.
" please, I just kissed Draco Lucius Malfoy, I am gonna wear a sign saying that "
This time Draco chuckled " you're an idiot "
" an idiot you Just kissed " Harry teased again.
Draco shook his head with a smile " an idiot I just kissed "
Harry stared at Draco a little too fondly for a few moments making Draco blush harder for being stared at " stop staring "
" Let's go on a date " Harry blurted.
Draco should not had been surprised by such a sudden ask but he was " Okay "
" you choose the place, I'll pick you up " Harry added.
" okay " Draco smiled at harry.
And harry smiled at Draco " okay "
" we're gonna date then, you and me "Draco smiled
"yeah, you and me " Harry replied
" it's gonna be a disaster " Draco chuckled softly.
" eh, we always were a disaster anyway. It was about time " Harry casually frowned. Draco looked at him a minute too long before he erupted in little laughter, harry soon joining.
Yes, they were thrown out of the library for the context, but they did end up kissing, so they had their happy end.
