"It is not about understanding what he tells you, it is about understanding what he says about you," Minerva hushed, the wound still fresh. His governess had, over the course of the last few days, come to hold a grudge, and Harry couldn't blame her. However, both Greek startled silent by the sudden sound of horse shoes on cobble stone.
They both turned their heads in the direction of the sound, and both showed different degrees of surprise. Minerva, understanding the change in dynamics, stepped away from Harry, creating a bigger distance between her and the crown prince. From there, she bowed.
Harry, on the other hand, looked closer to gobsmacked. Harry hadn't seen the prince for days; his memory did the striking sight of the prince's fair complexion, next to his pearly horse, little justice.
Over the course of only a few seconds, a small smile had appeared onto Harry's lips - only to then immediately be washed away by an almost flustered look. Even this expression was partially hidden as he, too, bowed for the prince.
"Your Highness," Harry greeted in Latin, having caught on that the prince seemed almost unwilling to speak French to him.
Once Harry straightened his posture, the flustered look had disappeared into pleasant politeness. "I am sorry, I did not expect your presence."

Draco briefly nodded as an acknowledgement to their bows, still keeping his hands on the reins of his horse. He felt a little embarrassed by the fact that this was the second time he was caught off-guard in his riding gear by their honoured guests, but at least he was actually around his horse this time around which made it more acceptable. It seemed like they were on their way to a ride themselves as well, or at least it seemed like Harry was at least.
"Oh please, do not apologise. You are guests here and are as welcome to use the premises as I am," Draco stated with a kind smile, replying in latin as well, gently reaching out to clap his horse on the neck in an attempt to calm it down while he was stuck in conversation. He didn't want to appear rude after all and he found that he didn't much mind the delay to his riding trip. He owed their guests to be polite to them, especially now that his father seemed to refuse to do so.
"You going for a ride yourself?"

Instinctively, Harry glanced at the horse by his side. His expression open and bordering on surprised, almost having forgotten about time and space in the presence of the prince.
"Yes, your Highness," he said once his eyes once again found Draco. His smile relaxed, and so did his grip around the reigns; he allowed the leather to slip between his fingers, only catching it at the very end, fingers catching on the loop.
"He has rested after the journey here," Harry said with the soft contractions of the Latin language, referring to his horse yet not thinking about specifying it. Harry didn't want it to appear as if he had been forced indoors, though it had started to feel like that within only a few days. "Bartholomew has kindly offered to show me the city."
By his side, the horse shifted, though Harry made no attempt to restrain it; as the stallion stepped further away from Harry, Harry's arm thoughtless stretched out to accommodate it. Harry's eyes had not left the prince, and, likewise, his smile had remained. "Are you just returning?"

"Just leaving," Draco corrected their guest, finding it nice to actually get to do some smalltalk done with their honoured guests. He really wanted to get to know Harry better and learn about his customs, but he figured that that could come over time. It was all a little tense, seeing as Draco was the crown prince and thus a lot of things were expected from him; even from foreign guests.
"That is a very lovely gesture from Bartholomew," Draco stated with a kind smile, his sarcasm almost not shining through his voice. He knew that Bartholomew had been made to show the guests their kingdom and he also knew that there was no way that the royal advisor was happy about it. It made Draco very happy to know that someone was actually taking care of their guests and was making sure that they were entertained.
"I hope that you are going to enjoy our beautiful city then."

"Would you care to join us, Your Highness?" How readily Harry answered, offering a question as a response to the prince's comment, almost made it sound as if the beauty of the city depended on whether or not the prince was riding through it. Though, by second thought, Harry did think it would make a difference.
At no point did Harry seem flustered by the possible interpretation of his question, features still pleasantly open and interested. "Bartholomew has only offered to show me, and by his phrasing I worry he doesn't intend to tell me about it."
To say Harry was grinning might be a stretch, but his words were spoken with a clear intention. If Harry could persuade the prince to join him, he was certain he'd enjoy his afternoon that much more.

How readily Harry offered for Draco to join their ride surprised him a little. It probably shouldn't be as surprising as he found it, seeing as Harry was here to learn about the culture and learn about the people, which was easier to do when you actually had someone to talk with. He definitely thought that Harry was right and that Bartholomew was only going to be showing him the city and only answer questions if Harry insisted.
"Alright," Draco said in a soft voice, feeling slightly flustered by how eager Harry seemed to be to have Draco join him. There was something so honest in the way that Harry talked and behaved and it wasn't something Draco was at all used to. "If you don't mind me joining, then I would love to tell you about my city."

Harry's smile widened, feeling almost lucky to hear the prince address the city with such tenderness. "I do not mind at all, Your Highness."
Over the course of the first days at the Louvre keep, Harry had grown weary of he immediate signs of separation between the country and its ruler; Harry was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the prince had enough interest in the city itself to accompany them.
"Bartholomew," he called, eyes still lingering on the prince as he spoke. It was only after the name had left his lips that Harry turned in search for the adviser. The man was standing across the courtyard, already looking at Harry as the Greek met his eye.
The smile remained on his lips as he continued in his softly accented French, the pristine politeness of his Latin getting muddled in the translation. "The prince will be with us."
Even in spite of the distance, Harry could read the look of desperation that flashed across the royal adviser's eyes. It only took him a moment to compose him, taking a step towards the two younger men, yet making no signs of actually wanting to cross the full distance. "Certainly, my prince. Allow me to arrange for an escort before we depart."

The mention of an escort didn't really surprise Draco, he was quite used to that being a part of his life after all, yet he could still feel that his heart fell by the mention of it. He knew that he would have to have an escort with him, especially when he was leaving the castle with another noble man, but sometimes he just really wished that he would be able to go places on his own and not think too much about where he was going and who was with him.
"Right, thank you Bartholomew," Draco said, sounding a lot more natural in the way he communicated when speaking french rather than when he was speaking latin. He felt a little sorry about delaying the trip further though and he really hoped that it wouldn't make Harry change his mind about him tagging along.
He turned his attention towards the Greek again rather than the royal advisor, an apologetic smile on his lips as he switched to latin once more. "I am sorry about that. They get like that whenever I want to go anywhere."

Brief as it might have been, hearing the effortless French of the crown prince sent a thrill down Harry's spine. The moment the prince spoke, Harry's eyes had darted back onto the other man, though the prince was still looking at the adviser. It brought a smile to Harry's face.
It was with some dissatpointment that Harry had to face the fact that there was no getting around speaking in latin. His smile, however, remained almost unaffected as he shifted his stance to yet again face the prince.
"No apologies," Harry did say in French, the corner of his mouth discreetly tugging upward. The grin disappeared as quickly as it came, as the stallion to Harry's side stepped forward towards the prince's mare. With a circular movement of his wrist, Harry once again got a proper hold of the reigns, preventing the horse to step further forward.
"Were you intending to go on a secret ride, Your Highness?" Harry's eyes once again met the prince's as he, this time, phrased the question in Latin. There was almost a tentative tease to his voice, and a definitive one to the smile ghosting across his lips, as carefully testing if he could push what was considered the appropriate tone for their exchanges. "I hope I didn't foil your plan of getting past the guards unnoticed and unaccompanied."
