“Well, huh… everyone seems awfully dressed up for a rehearsal dinner…” Blaise Zabini blinked slightly as he approached the bride and groom, before frowning slightly as he pulled out his invitation. “Did I miss something?”
Draco opened his mouth to respond, shut it again, then opened it once more as he glared at his friend. “The wedding’s over you bloody prat!”
“Wait, what?!” Blaise stared back at Draco his dark eyes widened in shock as he quickly opened up his invitation. “But it says here the wedding isn’t until tomorrow!”
“No, it doesn’t!” Draco shot back as he glared back at the man.
“Yes it does!”
“No, it doesn’t! I wrote that one out personally! I know what it says!” Draco argued back with a growl as he glared at the man.
“It says it right here!” Blaise countered back as he practically forced the invitation into Draco’s face.
“I’m telling you…” Draco snatched it out of Blaise’s hand and moved to point out the information before suddenly frowning. “Wait… This isn’t my handwriting.”
Different looks blossomed across the table as Daphne groaned aloud, Gabrielle spoke up with a bemused smile on her face as she turned her head and looked directly at an Astoria who was looking everywhere but at her husband and the man that was supposed to be his best man. “Astoria changed the invitation.”
“Wait, what?” Draco turned his head and stared at his wife.
“Well, it wasn’t like Harry would have agreed to being your first choice, is it?” Astoria offered up with an almost innocent smile on her lips.
“… You have to be bloody kidding me.” Harry muttered softly and groaned out as he hung his face in his hand.
“Wait, Potter… POTTER was your Best Man?!” Blaise spoke up, his eyes practically bulging out of his head before he stared incredulously from Draco to Harry, before he blinked as he noticed the way Daphne was leaning intimately against Harry. “Wait... What the bloody hell? Potter and... her?!”
“She does have a name you know.” Daphne spoke up with a roll of her eyes as she gave Blaise a patronizing look.
“Don't mind him, he's still upset with what you did to him back at Hogwarts.” Harry answered amiably as he lightly ran a finger through Daphne's hair.
“Why do you insist that was me?” Daphne sighed in frustration as she ignored the way Blaise had reflexively stiffened.
In response, Harry leaned in, and whispered into her ear. A moment later, Daphne's eyes widened as she pulled slightly back, staring at him incredulously. “Are you bloody well serious?”
“Mhm.” Harry agreed with a nod of his head and a smug little smirk.
“Well... Damn.” Daphne sighed slightly and slumped in defeat. “Fine. He's still upset with what I did.”
“Wait, did he just get her to finally admit to...?” Blaise spoke up, his eyes wide before he turned and stared back at Harry. “Did you just...?”
“He did.” Harry agreed with a chuckle and a twinkle of his eyes before shrugging slightly. “You're point?”
“... You know what? This is a story I think I've gotta hear.” Blaise chuckled softly as he pulled up a seat and smirked back at the rest of the group.
Author's Notes: Wow, finally done. Man, that thing turned into one helluva monster. It was only supposed to be something like 50K words or so.
For those of you that were wondering what was holding up my other fics... now you know.
Maybe one day I'll get around to writing a sequel involving how things turned out, but that's doubtful. As much as I want to write out the adventures of Sirius Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy... heh.
Well, hope you enjoyed the story. Got another one to work on now, cya around.
