In Harry’s blue and green spare room, Draco dropped his modest overnight bag on the wide, squashy bed. He turned toward the American-style quilts on the walls, the framed crayon art signed “Teddy,” the enormous bay window overlooking only moonless night.

Harry opened the door to the sparkling bathroom: long and thin, there was a door at the other end. Harry led through, and opened it. “My room,” he pointed. “I’ll be close by tonight.”

Entering, Draco saw Harry’s room and bed were the same size and shape as the guest’s. “A poor master bedroom,” he murmured, then blushed deeply.

“I know,” Harry answered, his own cheeks flushing. “But HillSide has everything I need. In a house, I mean. Including my staunchest wards.”

Standing tall, Draco looked Harry in the eye and took a calculated risk. “I value your professional skills, but I hope you won’t feel offended if I admit my nervousness remains.”

“I understand,” Harry rushed to reassure. “You’ve genuine concerns. People really are out to get you. But we’re out here, alone, completely cut off from the world, just the two of us. I promise you that.”

Draco did a poor job of hiding his scarlet reaction.

“I didn’t mean I’d take advantage!” Harry’s embarrassment leaked all over his face. “I’m only saying no one’s ever found HillSide, or broken my wards. People have tried, but they always do a poor job. You’re safe here.”

Draco blanched. “Are you sure? Death Eaters have tried? It would be easy to guess who I hired, where I am. Would you hear if I called out?” He wrung his hands once, then put his hands in his pockets. “Could we keep the doors between us open?”

“A worthy idea, but you make good points.” Harry stared at the ceiling briefly.

“Just opening doors might be inadequate. Someone talented’s clearly after you. Extra caution’s not wrong.” Harry looked sideways, apparently worried how Draco might respond.

“What are you suggesting?”

“You could share… my bed?”

“Harry?!” Draco gasped, hope and nerves warring to control his face.

“I won’t press my advantage!” Harry yelped. “I’ll show you!” He manhandled Draco into the bathroom and closed the door. Moments later he reopened it, and Draco saw his meaning. Harry wore heavy woolen pajamas; he was covered wrist to ankle.

“I’d be a poor guardian indeed if you were hurt on my watch,” Harry stammered.

“I, all right,” Draco said, flustered and hopeful. “I brought heavy woolen nightclothes as well. But I need to warn you, I’m a poor sleeper when I’m apprehensive. If I were sleeping alone tonight, I’d cast multiple charms to help me fall asleep. They might disturb your rest.”

“What charms?”

Draco looked at the floor. “Calor. Vapor. Mostly perdepso.”

“Oh!” Harry perked up. “Is that all? I give great back rubs, Draco! Much better than an old charm.”

He cracked his knuckles with relish, and Draco winced discreetly.

“By the time I finish your massage, you’ll sleep like a rock!”
