PART 13: THE REASON TO LIVE ~Original Ones' Memories~
Harry stood alone in the dark forest. His eyes are filled with hatred. It is unknown as to whom the hatred is for. All he knew is that he hates everything, everyone…. He even hates his own life. He wanted so badly to take his own life. The boy who lived, is it? His parents die because of him. Why is he living? He does not deserve this. He wanted to die.
Silver bullets won't work for him. Stakes also won't work on him. He's a hybrid. If he knew how he could die, he would be more than happy to kill himself. Right now, he's depending on Draco to find the answers for him. They made a contract with each other. Draco will find out how to kill a hybrid and kill Harry once he finds the answer while Harry get to give Draco the victory of killing him for his Dark Lord, Voldemort. So, it's a win-win situation for both of them.
Only that, things had gotten more complicated for them now. They started to have feelings for each other. They've had sex with one another. At first, they did it just for the sake of trying something new that is forbidden. It was supposed to just be sexual pleasures for them and no strings attached. But Harry is beginning to get possessive while Draco is becoming a jealous freak. So it's just obvious for them now. They did not comment anything about it to each other but they both knew that they both are aware of it.
"Dark, isn't it?" Harry heard Draco's voice whispering from behind him and later felt his hands wrapping around his waist.
"You're late," Harry said, pushing Draco's wrapping hands away from his body and turns around to face the sweet innocent-looking Draco. Draco smiles sweetly at him. Harry did not smile back. He's still wearing that same blank indifferent expression on his face.
"I'm sorry…" Draco apologized, trying to sound clingy and cute.
Harry dismisses his effort with a perturbing question. "How's your research going?"
Draco frowned. He did not answer. He only looks away to the darkness of the forest ahead of him. His eyes are writing sadness as it seems because that question is about his research on how to kill a hybrid. How to kill Harry…
"You're not backing out, is it?" Harry asked in a serious manner, folding his arms as he leans against the tree. He is looking at Draco with a piercing look in his eyes. 'Bad boy' is written all over his attitude.
Draco clenches his fist in anger. He looks at Harry furiously and lunges forward to throw a punch straight to Harry's face. Harry only smiles as he receives the blow to his face. He knew it was coming. He just refuses to make any effort to avoid it. He chuckles after the blow, wiping the drops of blood away from his lower lips. He can't help but think it's funny for Draco to punch him. Because there's no use in it… He likes pain. He likes to be hit. And Draco knew about it. So why is it that Draco still wants to hit him? Why is it that he is angry at him? Harry had no idea. So, he just laughs at it… until his lips healed and the pain gone. "You're a bloody idiot!" Draco cursed angrily and hurriedly trying to leave the place. But Harry pulls his hand, as if he's trying to steer him clear of his intention to run away. Draco then feels that warm drops of tears forming in his eyes.
"Shhh…" Harry shushed Draco when he realizes that he is going to cry. He pulls Draco closer to his arms and holds him close.
Draco sobs. "You're a bloody idiot," Draco repeated his curse but in a despairing manner. Harry only smiles that curse. He knew in his heart that Draco didn't want to do it. He no longer wants to kill Harry. Harry was actually quite glad but at the same time, he's also sad that Draco won't kill him.
He kisses Draco's forehead and pulls his face to look into his teary gray eyes. Draco cries even more when Harry does that. He's in love with Harry. He feels frustrated that he cannot accomplish Harry's wish which is to die and he's also very sad that Harry still wanting to die even when he now had someone who loves him very much. Why is that? Why can't Harry appreciate life more? "It's okay…" Harry said. "It's okay…" he repeated as he looks into Draco's eyes. Harry is displaying his broken smile.
Draco could not hold it back any longer. He pulls Harry's face closer and they kiss. He invades Harry's mouth with his tongue and licks every inner part of it. Harry can feel all the emotions from Draco with that kiss. He pulls Draco's body closer to him. He almost feels like he can tear that small fragile body apart.
Their fangs started appearing now. That would happen when they are sexually excited. Harry tries so hard to control himself. His claws are coming out too. The werewolf part of him wanted to rip Draco to pieces but his vampire side wanted to caress Draco endlessly. It's contradicting. Yet, it is exciting…
"I love you," Draco whispered in Harry's ears. Harry pushes Draco down to the soft, wet ground. They both stripped down the lower part of their body. Harry started to insert his harden loins into Draco. Draco moans in pleasure with his fangs glistening from the moonlight.
When they finished, they both lie down on the soft ground, looking up at the night sky, panting from the previous pleasure. Draco started to frown again. He only thought of one thing in his mind… When will this end? He didn't want it to end but he knew that this will end. Sadness stabs his heart. He didn't want to lose Harry. "Draco…" Harry called.
"Yes," Draco replied.
"I should tell you this," Harry said. Draco can smell hesitation in Harry's manner of speaking but he didn't say anything. He waited patiently for Harry to speak. "You're my reason to live…" Harry finally said, looking into Draco's eyes with a smile. Draco didn't know how to respond. He's happy. He's very happy with those words from Harry. His eyes are sparkling with tears of joy and he immediately pulls Harry close to him for a hug. He keeps on hugging Harry in that cold night, crying. Harry also cries, hugging him back. Maybe… Just maybe… Now they will not have to think of 'when will this end?'.
*NOTE: Yes. The original ones from the Immortal Realm are very different in their attitudes to the real Harry and Draco. Harry is the loner, indifferent type that everyone fears while Draco is the naughty, cute type that everyone loves. And oh yeah, in this story, Harry is the Seme (Top) and Draco is the Uke (Bottom) for original ones. But the real Harry and Draco from the magical realm is OPPOSITE to that. Just so you know…
