All he could manage was to nod and even that took a lot of concentration for some reason. He wanted to tell her that she looked wonderful, that her outfit was perfect and she was perfect in it.

It was suddenly impossible to contemplate her any other way and over all, Leo felt like his brain had melted. The traitor.

Half drunk and feeling incredibly awkward he joined her on the couch, placing one arm smoothly around her shoulders in way that even Troy would be proud of. He set the adverts rolling with a rather sloppy flick of his wand and settled into her, trying desperately to think of anything that wasn't her.

              He wanted to...and she wanted to and it took every ounce of his well practised self control to pull away from her. Especially when his hands were already half way there, never mind the rest of him,... more
