Epilogue: Part 2 : FINALE :
It has been 5 months since the Final Battle and the death of Voldemort and his Death Eaters.
Narcissa Malfoy was a happy woman now. She was enjoying every bit of freedom that she had.
She loved that her son and her daughter-in-law moved back into the house a few months ago. She loved Princess Hermione. She said that she always reminded her of her mother when she was younger.
Yes... Narcissa Black Malfoy knew Genevieve Riddle
Narcissa thought the only way to pay back Hermione for her husband's dark deeds was to do something nice for her. So, what she did was she made a nursery for Hermione and Draco's child, and her soon-to-be grandchild.
Princess Hermione and Prince Draco's room was hidden in the Manor and only Narcissa and the house elves knew about it.
It was hidden behind a portrait of a forest. If you watched the picture, you would be able to see a girl, looking similar to Hermione, in a thin, yet long, black dress, walking through the forest. It was a lovely picture, though it was kind of creepy, but Hermione and Draco choose it so no one would think of looking behind it.
Inside, the room was a nice dark green color. The trimming of the room was silver and the carpet was black. Off to one side, there were French doors, leading to a balcony that overlooked the beautiful garden and lake behind it. On the other side, there was a king sized, 4-poster bed. It had green silk sheets with a silver serpent. There was a mosquito net around it, giving it a nice, elegant look. On one wall, there were 3 bookshelves – all covered in books about everything magic. In the corner stood a spiral staircase that lead to an upstairs, where their master bathroom was.
Then, there was a portrait, next to the bed. It was a picture of two people reading in a library. Behind this, was the nursery Narcissa made.
The room was very colorful. Light blue, yellow, pink, purple, and green were spread across the room. There was, of course, a crib in the center of the room. In the corner, stood the changing table, and on the other side of the room, there was a rocking chair. There was also a wardrobe near a window. It was charmed, so if it's a girl or a boy, there will be clothes for them.
Hermione was sitting in the library that the Malfoy Manor had. She was reading a fictional love story, when she felt a sudden jolt of pain. It was overwhelming. Her vision blurred for a few seconds, and her hands instantly went to her enlarged stomach. A headache took over her head and her breathing started to go faster.
She couldn't believe this. It just had to happen today.
Today, she was supposed to finish 3 other books. Today, she had to go and have a meeting with Narcissa about what new flowers should be put in the garden. Today, she also had to go to the Ministry for a conference with all the other Ministers of Magic, to discuss how she was able to discover the counter curse to Avada Kedavera.
The Princess wasn't a very busy person, but today was one of those days. And it just had to happen today.
The pain went away and Hermione's vision came back. She looked to her left, where her wand lay on the side table, waiting to be used.
She grabbed her wand and muttered: Expecto Patronum
Though the Patronus was a charm to protect, she also knew it could send messages from reading while at Hogwarts.
She watched as her silver otter flew through the air to the destination she wanted with her message on it.
.: With Draco :.
Draco was sitting on his bay window in his study, looking over the early January day.
The sun was hot in the sixty-degree weather, just a little chilly but not too bad. The snow was glistening, and shinning brightly from being slightly melted. The trees were covered with snow and the lake was frozen solid.
It was a beautiful day.
Then he saw something from the corner of his eye. It was shimmering brightly.
He looked over to see Hermione's silver Patronus otter.
He got up questionably, and looked at the otter clearly. There was a silver note on its back, and he picked it up and opened it to see black writing.
"Im in labor" he said, reading the note aloud. "What does that mean?"
He looked down at Hermione's otter. Otter plus note equals Hermione
"Oh my gosh!" he said, eyes widening "Hermione!"
He ran out of his study, to his room, looking for Hermione. But he didn't find her there.
He went downstairs, into the kitchen, thinking since Hermione hormones were being screwed around with, that she'd be there. But he didn't find her there either.
"Where could Hermione be?" he thought clearly. "She had said something last night about a couple books she had to read and meetings she had to go to… BOOKS!"
He ran up to the Malfoy library and burst through the doors, yelling "Hermione!"
Hermione looked up at Malfoy and smiled, calmer than ever
"We've got to get you to St. Mungo's" he said, running over to her and kneeling in front of her.
She nodded, and smiled again
"Well, come on" he said, helping her up "We've got to go!"
He ran out of the library, getting their coats and calling his mother over.
"What is it Draco?" Narcissa asked.
"'Mione's in labor!" he said running around frantically.
"Oh that's wonderful dear" she said with a smile.
"Yes… I've got to get to St. Mungo's" he said and disapparated.
She rolled her eyes. "Just like how his father was"
She walked up the stairs to where she knew Hermione was.
"Hello dearest" she said, as she walked through the library doors "I think we might have to cancel your meetings. Let's get you to St. Mungo's, shall we?"
Hermione nodded, as Narcissa went over and helped Hermione to the front door.
Narcissa grabbed the coat Draco dropped and put it on Hermione.
Just then, Draco apparated into the house, eyes wide.
"Im sorry, Hermione" he said, walking toward her. He gave her a quick kiss. "Let's go have this baby"
Hermione gripped onto both of his wrist as he apparated them both to St. Mungo's.
She arrived, feeling very weak in her knees, and fell in a wheelchair that a healer already had ready for her.
"Ready to deliver that baby, Princess? Or should I call you Mrs. Malfoy?" the healer asked.
"Just Hermione please" she replied, finally speaking.
The healer nodded and wheeled her to a ward, with Draco in toe.
"Just in here"
They turned into a ward, for one person only.
The healer gave Hermione a hospital dress and, after she changed, she helped her into the hospital bed.
"As the muggles say: The doctor will see you in a moment" the healer said and then left, laughing at the word doctor.
Hermione waved her hand and her book appeared in her hands, the one she was reading before.
"How can you be so calm?" Draco asked as he sat down next to her in a chair, hair disheveled.
She shrugged. "I guess it doesn't seem so big right now. But watch… once the pain comes, you'll wish you weren't here"
Draco shook his head no "I would never leave your side."
She smiled as he grabbed her hand.
Then a medi-witch walked in and looked at the couple.
"The Princess and her Prince expecting their first child…. True fairy tale" she said with a smile. "Lets check you out, shall we?"
She went over to Hermione, took out her wand, and said a spell.
A scroll appeared out of nowhere in front of her.
"Hmmm…" she said looking over the scroll. "Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Malfoy! It seems you are having twins… and your next contraction is coming" she glanced at her watch "…. Now"
Hermione felt the same jolt of pain, and squeezed Draco's hand, hard. She shut her eyes and took deep breaths, trying to think of another topic to drown all the thoughts of pain out of her mind.
Draco winced as Hermione cut the circulations to his fingers. He loved her, but the pain was unbearable
The medi-witch counted to ten and the contraction stopped.
"That wasn't so bad, now was it?" she asked.
Hermione glared. "Don't mess with me at the moment"
Draco stroked her hair "Its ok" he cooed.
She took more breaths "Sorry" she replied.
The medi-witch nodded. "It's understandable. Now… I think you guys should think of a name for the two that are to arrive in about" she glanced at her watch again "Give or take 5 hours"
Hermione nodded and the witch left.
"Two?" Draco asked.
Hermione nodded. "We're having twins, Draco"
Draco's eyes widened, then he passed out, falling out of his chair.
Hermione rolled her eyes. "Just like last year" she said and took her wand, muttering "Despierta" and water came out of her wand, splashing Draco in the face.
"What? Huh?" he said jumping up and looking around. "I just had the strangest dream… the medi-witch said we were having twins"
Hermione smiled and told him to sit "Well then, you weren't dreaming"
Draco's mouth dropped. "It's just like my dream" he said.
Hermione looked at him questionably, but shrugged it off and began reading.
Draco sighed and leaned back in his chair. He ran a hand through his hair, and blew out a long breath he didn't even know he was holding.
"What are you so scared about?" Hermione asked, looking at him with concern filled eyes.
He smiled. "Nothing" he got up and kissed her forehead "I'm going to owl everyone. Don't have those babies without me"
She smiled and nodded, then began reading.
Draco walked to the door, then turned to Hermione and smiled before exiting the ward.
Draco walked up to the Owlery (sp?) he knew the hospital had.
He started writing letters, one to everyone important..
If you wouldn't mind sending Ginny Weasley to St. Mungo's for today and tomorrow. I'm sure she would like to be there when Hermione has our twins. Thank you for your hospitality.
The Prince of Slytherin,
Then he wrote to Harry and Ron that were both at the Ministry, working as Aurors.
Dear Harry and Ron,
It has come to my attention that you two need to be here, at St. Mungo's. Hermione is in labor with twins. … I'm just as surprised as you two. Hope this letter doesn't get intercepted. See you two soon
The Prince of Magic,
Then he wrote one to his mother.
I would like it if you joined Hermione and I at St. Mungo's. It has been noted that she is having twins instead of one. If you want to change anything in the nursery, I think now would be the time.
Now he needed his best mate.
Hey man, 'Mione's in labor and we're having twins. Come to St. Mungo's, Ginny is going to be here and I'm sure you what to see her, don't you? Anyways, if not, then come for support.
He smiled. He had to write like Blaise for Blaise to be able to understand him. (Blaisezeniess)
He looked at his watch and then heard 3 pops. He looked up and saw Harry, Ron, and Blaise.
"'Ello Mate" Blaise said, smiling.
"Stressed yet?" Harry asked, beaming.
"That's what you get" Ron said, also smiling.
"Come on, we should get to the fireplace." Draco said and led them out of the room.
Once at the fireplace, Ginny came out instantly.
She dusted herself off and then looked up at them. "Ready for this?" she asked them.
They nodded "Lead the way, Draco"
He smiled at her. She always found a way to seem happy. He took them to Hermione's ward where she was starting a new book.
"Hey 'Mione!" Ginny said and ran up to her friend, and hugged her.
"Hey Gin" she said smiling.
"So you're having twins, huh?" Harry asked walking over to her, also giving her a hug.
She nodded. "I guess so"
Ron and Blaise walked over to her and gave her a hug too.
Hermione smiled and looked out the window. She saw her raven, sitting on the windowsill.
A puzzled look came upon her face, but she snapped her fingers. The window opened and the raven flew in and landed on her shoulder.
She took the note her raven had and began to read.
It has been a long time since I talked to you. 18 years to be exact. I would like to congratulate you and Draco for the twins. Your father is here, chanting "I'm going to be a grandfather!" all over Heaven. It's starting to get really annoying but that's why I love him. I would like to thank you for defeating my father, or your grandfather. I was never able to see the light of day because of him. Thank You. I'm proud to call you my daughter, Hermione. I hope you and Draco have a wonderful life with the twins. Enjoy Life
Genevieve Riddle, Your Mother
Hermione's eyes began to tear. She never got to meet her mother and this was the only thing close enough to her.
A tear fell and landed on the parchment. And soon, two gold chains appeared on the parchment. One for each child, the letter wrote.
Hermione looked ahead to see two ghostly figures, smiling and waving to her. She knew instantly who they were… her parents.
She smiled at them before another contraction came, making all the pain come back to her.
The medi-witch ran through the door and in front of Hermione.
"It seems my calculations were wrong. The babies should be here sooner than we thought."
Hermione counted slowly to ten and the contraction stopped.
"What do you mean sooner?" she asked, trying to stay calm.
"Maybe in 2 hours, we'll have two little babies instead of in 5."
Hermione nodded. "Just get them out of me"
The medi-witch laughed. "Don't worry, they'll be out soon. Just rest till then"
Hermione laid her head on the pillows behind her, relaxing, and taking deep breaths.
Draco watched his wife breath. Even though she might be all angry from the pain, he still thought she looked cute.
He stroked her hair as she calmed down. She kept her eyes closed. She soon fell into a slumber, but he knew she was going to wake up for a contraction.
He just stared at her, as she went through the final contraction. Then, before he knew it, the two hours passed and the medi-witch was giving Hermione a potion.
"This should help a little bit with the pain" the witch said.
Narcissa shook her head as she watched Hermione go through pain.
"Poor girl has to go through child birth twice in an hour. But it will be worth it in the end." She smiled. "I'm going to be a grandmother"
She took a seat and two ghostly figures appeared next to her.
She didn't flinch "I was wondering when you two would get here"
The woman shrugged. "It's hard to get past Merlin."
"I'm going to be a grandfather" the man was chanting.
Narcissa laughed. "I see you're just as happy as me"
Hermione watched as Narcissa talked to her parents. She thought it was only her that could see them but apparently not.
"I need you to push, Princess" the medi-witch said.
Hermione did as she was told. The pain was worst than the contractions. Lemon juice in her eyes seemed like nothing now.
She continued to push until the medi-witch said stop and she heard a baby cry.
"It's a girl"
A healer came out of nowhere and took the baby from the medi-witch. Hermione watched as the healer took her baby to a table and clean her off.
Draco was beaming. He was a father finally.
But then the smile faded when Hermione began crushing his hand again once the medi-witch told her to push.
The pain came back to Hermione.
She looked up at Draco, anger on her face. "This is your fault!" she yelled
Draco gaped. Narcissa laughed "Don't worry, honey, it's just her hormones"
Draco nodded and Hermione continued to push.
He was focusing on his purple fingers until he realized Hermione let go of his hand, and a baby cry could be heard.
"It's a boy" the medi-witch said before another healer came and took Hermione and Draco's son.
Hermione sighed with relief and laid back down, panting.
Draco smiled at his wife. "You did it!" he said, happier than ever. He kissed her forehead as she continued to breath deeply.
The two healers came over with their kids.
They gave the son to Draco and the daughter to Hermione.
"What are you going to call them?" Ginny asked.
"I'll pick his name if you pick hers" Draco said, still smiling.
Hermione nodded. "Everyone… meet Alexandra Genevieve Malfoy"
Hermione's ghostly mother smiled.
Draco looked down at his son… Just like my dream, he thought
He smiled "This is Jacob George Malfoy"
Hermione's ghostly father beamed, and started jumping around "My grandson is named after me!"
Genevieve rolled her eyes. She gave Hermione a smile, and then grabbed her husband, who waved, and they vanished.
Narcissa smiled "It was good to see them again" she said to no one in particular.
Ginny smiled and conjured a camera. "Get together you four" she indicated to Draco, Hermione, Alex, and Jake.
Draco climbed onto the bed with Hermione and wrapped his arm around her. They smiled down at their children and Ginny took the picture.
"Kodak moment" Harry said, smiling.
Hermione giggled. She was the only one who knew what he was talking about.
"Ginny, would you like to be their godmother?" Hermione asked.
Ginny beamed and nodded frantically.
Her best friend and my best mate, Draco thought
"Blaise, how about you… want to be their godfather?"
Blaise did the same as Ginny, beamed. He walked over to Ginny, grabbed her around the waist as he chanted, "We're their godparents!" Ginny soon joined in, as he spun her around.
Hermione and Draco laughed.
.: 5 Years Later :.
Hermione and Draco were 23 years old and had 2 lovely little 5 year old children.
Alex had taken her mothers beauty. She had soft brownhair and lovely brown eyes.
As for Jake, he had his father's platinum blonde hair and gray eyes.
They were a spinning image of their parents, and Hermione and Draco loved this.
It still made them wonder how on Earth could the prophecy say one child when they got two wonderful kids with the same power as them.
"No one said the prophecy would be accurate." Hermione always said.
Draco sat in a chair in the gardens of the Malfoy Manor, of which he now owned. He sat there, drinking a cup of tea, while reading the Prophet.
The day was nice. Very bright sky, birds chirping and flying through the air. The wind was gentle and carried a slight scent of roses as it flew by and ruffled his hair.
He loved days like this. Calm and soothing, until…
Two little children's voices came. He put down his copy of the Daily Prophet and saw a little boy about 5 with blonde hair and radiant silver eyes with a little girl about the same age with long brown hair and chocolate brown eyes.
He smiled upon their appearance.
"Hi Alex. Hi Jake. What is it?" he said calmly, the kids in front of him, beaming.
"Mummy's trying to make us go to bed for nap time" Alex said.
"We don't want to go to sleep yet" said Jake.
Draco's smile grew even wider. "Is she really?"
"There you two are" came a sudden voice, shocking the kids but not surprising Draco.
"Mum!" the little kids screamed in unison.
They turned around to find a woman who didn't even look like she had kids. She had long brown straight hair that went to the end of her back and she was wearing a black dress that reached the floor. It was tight around her torso, like a corset, but puffed a little bit after her stomach, giving it an elegant style. She wore a long sleeve, black sweater that was open like a jacket and went past her mid thigh and hugged her body in the right spots.
She leaned against the doorframe of one of the French doors leading to the 3rd living room/ ballroom.
"Did you two think you could hide from me?" she said to them.
Alex and Jake ran around the gardens, screaming with joy and laughing like there was no tomorrow. Their mother was running after them, enjoying her time with her kids.
Draco still loved days like this though.
He got up and went towards his wife. As she ran by him, he grabbed her by the waist and pulled her close to him.
"Run you two. I don't know how long I can hold her" Draco said to Alex and Jake.
They giggled and ran into the house and, from what Draco could see, up the curved staircase and vanished from their site.
He looked to his wife who was staring at him with a smile on her face.
"You know I'll get you back for doing that, right?" she asked.
"I know" he bent down and gave her a gentle kiss. He released and looked into her eyes "But you know you love me"
His wife smiled. "Yes… I know" she said truthfully.
He smirked "I love you, Hermione"
"I love you too, Draco"
They kissed passionately until
"Hehe... Mummy and Daddy are kissing!" the heard a voice say.
They looked up to see an Alex giggling and a Jake, grossed out, looking over one of the many balconies.
"I love days like this" Draco said.
Hermione nodded. "Me too" she looked at Alex and Jake at the balcony. "We need to start getting ready for the corrination"
Draco nodded "Yes, Yes, of course"
Draco and Hermione walked to Alex and Jake's room and readied them up.
Alex was wearing a small black dress with shoes that laced up like a goddess.
Jake wore simple black dress robes with the family crest on his the left corner of his chest.
Both of them wore black cloaks that reached the floor. On the back, there was an 'M' for Malfoy.
Hermione didnt have to change. She was already wearing what she had to wear.
Draco smirked, She forgot about their nap time, he thought.
He too dressed in black dress robes with the family crest.
Hermione and Draco wore their crowns and robes.
Hermione picked up Alex, while Draco picked up Jacob.
They both apparated to Hogwarts, since they were the only ones who could, and were greeted with a large crowd of people, cheering, clapping, and whisteling.
They continued to walk until they got to the Great Hall.
A red carpet was placed on the floor, leading to the Heads table.
Dumbledore stood at his pediom, smiling, and the twinkle in his eyes.
He began "We are gathered here today to promote both Prince Draco and Princess Hermione to King and Queen. Their children, Alexandra and Jacob, will become the new Princess and Prince of Magic"
Jake and Alex gasped. They were wondering why they were so dressed up, and why their parents were wearing crowns like in the stories they had read to them.
Hermione and Draco continued to walk with the children in their hands.
Once to the front, they kneeled before Dumbledore, and bowed their heads.
Dumbledore took their crowns and placed them on top of Alex and Jake's head, Alex - silver, Jake - which turned silver.
"I here by announce, Alexandra Genevieve Malfoy, Princess of Gryffindor and Magic, and Jacob George Malfoy, Prince of Slytherin and Magic"
Then, Madam Pomfrey came out with a new pair of crowns on a burgundy pillow, like 5 years before.
"Princess Hemione Isabel Granger Malfoy is now, and forever known in the History of Magic, as the Queen of Gryffindor and Magic" he placed a new gold crown, similar to hers before but slightly bigger.
He walked to Draco
"Draco Gregory Malfoy is now, and forever known in the History of Magic, as the King of Slytherin and Magic" he placed the new gold crown upon his head.
Draco and Hermione stood, children still at hand.
People began to cheer all around the Malfoy family.
Hermione and Draco saw in the crowd all of their friends. Even Pansy, who was smiling and clapping, with some French guy.
"Let us Celebrate!" Dumbledore said and the four long tables appeared.
"You four will sit at the Heads table" Dumbledore said and led them to their spots.
Draco and Hermione sat in large, gold plated chairs, with Alex on Hermione's left, and Jake on Draco's right.
Draco leaned in to whisper in Hermione's ear. "Something good always happens when we're here"
Hermione nodded. "Is that good? or bad?"
Draco smiled and gave her a quick kiss. "Good"
She smiled and placed a hand on his cheek "My King"
Draco let out a small laugh and placed his hand on hers, "My Queen"
And they ended this story with a passionate kiss.
"Mummy and Daddy are kissing again!"I have stuff to say
I named the children after Draco's dream. At the time i was going out with this one kid, but me and him are over now so the name kinda had 2 stick cuz i wanted it 2 b just like Draco's dream which is y he kept saying "its just like my dream". (Dont jump to conclusions Kate D.)
As 4 y i didnt make Hermione and Draco king and queen b4... that was bcuz when Dumbledore was registering Hermione and Draco as royalties at the Ministry, he knew they were going to have kids, after hearing the prophecy, so he made them Prince and Princess so that they can be promoted, like their kids. It didnt seem formal to me so i had 2 add it. They also seemed young to be King and Queen at the age of 17. But then again... Hermione being pregnant at 17 seemed to young too.
There is also the fact that there will be no sequel to this, cuz then it would b Hermione and Draco's kid's life and i dont want that. I'm more into Dramione fics... not their kids going to Hogwarts and finding adventure, love and terror. Not me. Sorry to disappoint everyone.
Thanks to all my reviewers... Im glad u liked my story.
