Summary: Draco enjoys the sounds of his home


There were very few sounds Draco Malfoy enjoyed after spending three years wandering the countryside of England. The contemplative silence he often found amongst fields of daisies spoke volumes about the nature of mother Earth and her wonders; it was something that he could appreciate as a potion maker, owner of an Apocathery, and someone at peace with himself.

Going back to wizarding society hadn’t necessarily being hard, he did manage to blend in rather well, but the constant humdrum of owning a business in Diagon Alley often grated his nerves and calm demeanor. He avoided Ministry functions as much as possible, and enjoyed spending his days at his shop or at home.

Home.

There was one place where its inhabitants could be as loud as they wished and Draco wouldn’t mind one bit.

He loved hearing the joyous laughter that rang throughout the walls of his spacious house. He would smile warmly at hearing the odd tumbles and screams of his children as they fought, or the light footsteps of running down the hall when playing hide and seek. He wasn’t too thrilled to hear the shrill screaming from his daughters whenever they whined, or cried, but it was still much more enjoyable than the shrill complaints of customers.

Draco enjoyed listening to his wife attempt cooking every evening; her colorful language was always amusing to say the least. He loved hearing the pots and pans clanking together and the noise of the Floo being used constantly as she’d would ‘call Mum Weasley just one more time to double-check.’

He loved the scribbling of a quill on parchment whenever he was alone in his office. And the sound of the crackling fire warmed his heart. He loved the creaked of the door opening to find one of his children standing there, asking to be read a bedtime story.

The silence of thoughts and words of love left unspoken weighted heavily over the home he made for himself and children. But if anyone took any time to listen to the silence they could hear it as well. There was love in this household.

And, of course, there were certain sounds he enjoyed hearing much more in the privacy of their bedroom. The soft gasps, low moans, and shrieks of pleasure he gave his wife always made his chest swell with pride. It was silly, really to be so proud of giving his wife an orgasm. But Draco Malfoy loved it. He loved reducing his wife to a blubbering pile of pleasure.

Then there were the much more intimate and much less carnal sounds of lovemaking. Soft grunts and sighs, the unsaid thoughts they shared through their eyes, and the sweet-nothings they whispered in the middle of the night.

But in the end there had been few words and moments in his life that had sped his heart up more than he could control, or manage than an ‘I love you’ from his wife’s sweet lips.

Of course, the ‘I’m pregnant’ made his eyes bulge and faint but they don’t speak of that because Malfoy’s don’t faint.
