Despite Dumbledore's death, his promise of help still held: the Order whisked me to safety.
I lie hidden, snug as a mouse, winter-curled in its nest. My protector cradles me and my confessions, my misdeeds, in his arms. He knows it all. My tongue traces the words onto his skin; my fingers whisper along the contours of his body. I want to slot myself into his soul.
"Fidelius... " I murmur into the sooty softness of his hair. "Forever faithful, Harry... my Secret Keeper... my love."
In the dark of the night I teach him some new secrets, just for two.

Harry laughed. “I trust you.”
Ron sighed. “You’re sure this is the only way?”
Harry looked at Draco, surrounded by luggage. He sent Harry a weak smile. Harry turned back, his face set. “You know it is. At least for now.”
Ron did know. The press was relentless, the public disgruntled. Their hero should marry the girl. Ron just wished…
He extended his hand. Harry lifted his wand, murmuring Fidelius.
“You know where to find me.”
Ron nodded. They embraced, then Harry went to Draco.
Ron Apparated so Harry wouldn’t see his tears.
