((life is just,,, too short not to enjoy good things,,,,))

Lucius Malfoy had been examining his cup of tea with such scrutiny, one could forget it had been made by his own wife, and had been served in the comfort of their shared home. He sat comfortably in the dining chair as he continued to turn the spoon in the tea, looking at the colour and clarity of it against first the white china and then, the silver spoon.
"We've decided it is time you entered a public relationship," he eventually spoke, effectively breaking the silence that had fallen on the table after the initial pleasantries had been exchanged over the proceeding lunch.
It was only then he raised his gaze, finally looking at his son to whom the statement had been directed. Well aware of the presence of his wife, both to his right and in his statement, he didn't consider her a true part of the conversation. For that matter, neither was Draco; after all, Lucius wasn't asking.
Once having spoken, Lucius' hand abandoned the silver spoon, leaving the tea otherwise untouched. Instead he folded his hands on the table top in front of him, eyes unwavering.
"I believe your public -" he paused, the act calculated and intentionally hurtful "- homosexuality could potentially bring in minority votes in the upcoming polls."

Being invited to tea at the manor was never really a pleasant experience for Draco. Sure, he enjoyed spending time with his mum, but being around his father was always awful and there was absolutely no way that tea at the manor wouldn’t be stilted and awkward.
Despite how often he had had to have his behaviour monitored closely by his father as to bring in more votes, there was no way he could have ever forseen what his father just said. His homosexuality had always been the source of great shame to his father, so hearing anything but him having to keep it a secret was quite a shock to Draco.
“I beg your pardon?” Draco asked, having to be absolutely certain that he had heard his father correctly. His gaze quickly went to his mum, wanting to see if her face gave anything away, but there was nothing to read there. He had no idea what his father was hoping to achieve with this, but he definitely knew that he didn’t like it.

Lucius looked at his son for a long moment, before eventually deciding it was beneath both of the to pretend Lucius hadn't expressed himself clearly enough, or that Draco hadn't perfectly understood him. The boy should, after all, be brighter than that. Instead, he continued, paying Draco's evident surprise no mind.
"Statistically, minority voters vote on other minorities," he continued, his voice proper and enunciated as he shifted his weight, crossing his legs beneath the table. He picked at his jacket lapelles, readjusting them in the new position.
"God forbid they should actually care about real politics, so I've been recommended to campaign for personal votes by -" he paused, finally meeting Draco's eye. His expression first and foremost indifferent "- publicly associating myself with a minority."
For the first time over the course of the conversation, Lucius smiled. The smile was both so controlled and so delayed it was transparently obvious it was a forced command. "Preferably a couple."

Even if Draco was fairly intelligent and that his father was expressing himself extremely clearly, Draco still didn’t understand what he was saying. There was no way in hell that his father would want Draco to come out in public like that, and it wasn’t something that Draco wanted for himself either.
He shot another look at his mother, desperately wanting to get this to make sense, but Narcissa’s expression was completely calm. It made Draco even more unnerved about the situation, seeing as that meant that it was something the two of them had discussed and wasn’t another one of his father’s whims.
“Hate to state the obvious, but you are married to a minority and have a minority son. I don’t know what more you want fro me here,” he stated with a shrug as he took a sip from his tea, desperately needing to not look at his father.

For the first time over the course of the conversation, Lucius turned to look at his wife. His smile had disappeared, and though he didn't frown it was evidently he was trying to match Draco's statement to Narcissa. With an unspoken yet visible comment about what he perceives as a real minority, he once again searched to meet Draco's eye.
"I want you to enter a homosexual relationship," he instead repeated. The smile reappeared onto his lips. "You are, otherwise, not seen as a marginalized minority in the public eye."
His attention once again wandered to Narcissa, his smile warming up, as if accrediting that fact to her and the old, British money of her family. The smile cooled once he again addressed his son. "I have found a man that goes over well with our minority focus groups. I want you to attend the party fundraiser this upcoming weekend as an established couple."

Even if Draco had always known that his father was rather uneducated on things that weren’t straight or white, it was still staggering to hear just how little he actually understood about his son’s identity. As a Korean, gay man he would never not be seen as a minority, but he also knew that there would be no point in arguing that with his father.
All thoughts of arguing his minority status however disappeared at his father’s next words. Lucius had had many terrible ideas to involve him in his politics many times in the past, but this had to be the worst idea he had ever heard before.
“And you thought that this was a good idea to just jump on me? Without having me involved in any of the planning?” He asked, needlessly because he already knew that his father already thought that it was. “How do you know that I’m not already seeing someone?”

The smile remained on Lucius' lips, but by now it had lost all of its meaning and now only served to tug his features into something of a grimace. In his eyes, there was look of satisfaction, and even though he managed to restrain himself, is impulse had been to glance at Narcissa, letting her answer what must have been a rhetorical question.
"I doesn't matter if you were, "because you aren't. The addition flashed across the upturned corners of his smile. "I have no interest in publicly endorsing an unfavorable couple. You're going to appear at the galla with the young man of my choice. As I've said, he has been run past our focus groups and he had been specifically chosen because he goes over well with voter groups, you alone don't attract."

“I’m glad that you trust my taste in men that much,” Draco said with a deep frown, clearly unhappy about the statement coming from his father. Sure, Draco hadn’t been dating anyone seriously since his split from Blaise, but he didn’t want his father to know that.
“And what if I refuse?” He asked as he put his cup back into the saucer with a slightly too loud clatter. He was clearly unhappy about the turn of the conversation and he did not want to go there at all. He wasn’t interested in helping his father gain more votes in any way, even if he knew that it probably wasn’t going to work the way his father wised it would. It still left a sour taste in Draco’s mouth and he wasn’t interested in helping at all.
“What if I don’t want to date some random dude you have found for me?”
