The Wedding

It’s been one year. This year has gone by both quickly and slowly. We spent most of it making sure everything for the wedding would be perfect. I didn’t care about all the materialist things, but the fact I’m marrying my best friend, the guy who has been my best friend since we were in diapers.

We could get married in Potions or Dark Arts class and I would’ve been happy, but this is my dream wedding. I’m going to enjoy every second of it.

Skyra

“I can’t believe my best friend is getting married!” Pansy says excitedly

Ginny looks over, “I know, it’s amazing! She deserves all the happiness in the world”

“She’s getting married, to Malfoy. Draco Malfoy of all people!” Pansy replies

“I’m so happy” I give a giddy smile, “I never thought this day would come. I’m so nervous!”

I finish putting my dress, shoes, and makeup on

“Do you want to see my dress?” I ask them.

I walk out in a beautiful Black dress, with long sleeves, with smokey eyeshadow, curly hair, and a Green bouquet.

“You look absolutely amazing Sky!” Pansy yells

“So beautiful!” Ginny says

“Y’all look so amazing! How are you 2 single?!” I ask

They are wearing silk Emerald Green dresses with a slit at high thigh, with Gold heels and Snake necklaces and earrings

Pansy says, “LET’S GET YOU MARRIED!”

At that moment, dad walks in

“Sky, are you ready honey?” Dad asks

“Yeah dad, let’s do this!”

When he sees you in your dress, he looks at you in awe, trying not to shed a tear, because Severus Snape doesn’t cry.

“Malfoy is one lucky guy to get to marry you. If he hurts you, I will hurt him,” he says with certainty

You just look at him, “Oh stop. He hasn’t hurt me in the 5 years that we’ve been together officially. Other than the Granger bullshit.”

“Well, let’s get you hitched honey” he says

Draco

Today’s the day. I marry the woman of my dreams. Dumbledore is officiating the wedding, which is a shocker because the Malfoy’s and Snape’s would rather get the Dark Lord or someone to do it.

The music begins to play, and I get worried.

“Are you scared mate?” Blaise asks

I turn my head towards Blaise, “Of course I am. I just want to be the best man for her. I want her happy”

“You’re going to be the best for her. You’ve been together 5 years, no one else is going to be good for her like you. She loves you, and you love her. You’re the best one for her.” Blaise says

Blaise elbows me

I whisper to Blaise, “She’s absolutely beautiful”

“She looks great Malfoy. You’re a lucky git!” Blaise responds

I can tell Goyle is staring at her, but I can’t be mad. Everyone in this place is stating at her, including me.

Me and Sky make eye contact, and I can see her starting to tear up. I can’t help but tear up at how amazing she looks. She looks absolutely breathtaking, but that’s normal. Just a lot more than normal.

“You look so beautiful my love,” I tell her while grabbing her hand from Snape.

"Take care of my daughter Malfoy" he says, the words I have heard my whole life from my parents and her dad.

Dumbledore begins to speak

“Tonight we are here to celebrate two special people that have decided to dedicate their lives to each other.” Pauses, “They have written their own vows. Mr. Malfoy, you may begin”

I grab her hand, “Skyra Marie Snape, the past 5 years of dating you, has been perfect. Of course there was a few bumps in the road, but we made it through it. You have been my best friend since we were in diapers, and I have loved you since we were 9. You are my everything and I am glad I get to call you mine. I promise to always protect you from everything. I promise to love and care for you through it all. I love you more than life itself”

Skyra

As Draco says his vows I try so hard not to cry, but the sweet words coming out of his mouth is everything.

“Miss Snape, you may go” Dumbledore says

“Draco Lucius Malfoy... Where do I even begin with you, with us. You were my best friend in diapers, we grew up together and been through so much together. You are my best friend, other than Pansy, and you have been there through it all. I have been lucky to call you mine, officially for the past 5 years, and I can’t wait until forever with you. I will always love you, care for you, and protect you. I love you more than anything, and I’m lucky I get to marry you.”

Dumbledore looks at us, then the crowd, “If there are no objections, then

“Do you Draco Malfoy take Skyra Snape to be your wife?”

“I Do” Draco says with a smile on his face

“Do you Skyra Snape take Draco Malfoy to be your husband?” Dumbledore asks

“I Do” I say with a happy heart.

“I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride Mr. Malfoy” Dumbledore says.

Me and Draco have our first dance as husband and wife. Although we have danced so many times before, it feels different now, a good difference.

“I love you my beautiful wife” Dray smiles and kisses me

I can’t help but smile and kiss back, “I love you my handsome husband”

We finish dancing and the family walks up

“Welcome to the family sweetie,” Narcissa says, “Officially family”

“Congratulations, now we can focus on the task at hand” Lucius comments

Dad looks at him, “Lucius, let them enjoy their wedding night” shakes his head, “The Dark Lord has given them permission to take a few days off.”

Bellatrix smiles, “Congratulations you two. I wish you all the happiness. Skyra, you can call me Aunt Bella if you would like”

Everyone is whispering about Bellatrix Lestrange being at the wedding. Mainly considering she escaped from Azkaban a few months ago. But she is Narcissa’s sister and Draco’s aunt.

“Thank you everyone. I’m glad to be officially a Malfoy, and apart of the family.” I say as Draco smiles and grabs my hand

Draco

I just married the most beautiful and perfect girl in the world. The one who loves me with my flaws and all. After the wedding we head to the hotel at the beach where we will be for the next week.

“Y’know, I never thought that I would be married to Snape’s daughter. And the fact he didn’t kill me for dating you.”

Sky giggles at you, “He wouldn’t kill you, maybe hurt you though. I never thought I would marry a Malfoy, but here we are”

I kiss her forehead, “I wouldn’t want it any other way darling”

We both get a shower. It took Sky forever to get the makeup off her face and the hairspray out of her hair. She bolted for my sweats and my hoodie after she showered, and she jumped on the bed next to me.

“Hey babe?” She asks with her little sneaky voice

“Yes my beautiful?” I question

“Can we go walk on the beach for a little bit?” She asks with a big smile

I smile at her, “Anything you want Mrs. Malfoy”

We go walk on the beach and find a big boulder to sit on and stare at the stars, listening to the waves crash on the sand.

“It’s so beautiful and peaceful out here” she says

“Not as beautiful as you baby girl. I love you so much Skyra. I don’t tell you enough, but I promise I will never make you feel like you are unloved. I will show you everyday the love I have for you. Regardless of everything,” I convey to her

She sits on my lap, wrapping her legs around me, “Baby, you never make me feel unloved. You always make sure to tell me you love me and show me the love you have for me. I love you and I’m so glad I got to marry you. I wouldn’t want life with anyone else.”

We sit there until 2 AM, and we realize it’s late and it’s getting cold. I can feel her shaking from being cold.

“Let’s get back to the room, it’s late and I just want to cuddle with you” I presume

“Okay babe, I’m getting cold anyway” She says just as smiley as ever

We get back to the room, I carried her bridal style the whole way. I lay her under the covers and cuddle up next to her. She lays her head on my chest and within 5 minutes, I figured she was asleep by the way she was breathing.

I whisper softly, ” Goodnight my beautiful wife. I love you so much. I will protect you with everything I have, with this upcoming war”

She rustles a little, getting comfier, me thinking she was asleep, she says back, “We will make it through the war babe, don’t worry. We will protect each other. Please stop worrying and get some sleep. I love you Dray”

We missed classes for the next week while we were on our honeymoon. We get back to school and know that we have to start focusing on the tasks.

Our mission is to make sure the vanishing cabinet is ready to use to bring the Death Eaters into Hogwarts. Me and Sky have talked so much about not wanting to do this, but we know we have to do this, we were chosen to do this. We have to protect our families and not to disappoint them.

Skyra

“Now that Sky and Draco are back at Hogwarts, it’s time to start preparing. Harry Potter will be ours,” the Dark Lord proclaims

Lucius steps in, “We need to make sure these two are safe. With Sky’s powers, her and Bellatrix are the greatest chance we have of winning.”

I stand up, “We have been practicing our spells and hexes to ensure we are at our best.”

Aunt Bella looks at us, “With Sky with us, me and her alone can handle it all. We have to be sneaky with her, not to blow her cover.”

“What about the invisibility cloak? Could she possibly put that on that stay hidden?” Draco asks

“That would be the best way to make sure she’s safe,” Narcissa adds

“NO!” I yell, “If you guys aren’t wearing a cloak, then neither am I! I’m no better than any of you!”

Dad looks at me, “Sky, we can’t afford to lose you. You are the strongest witch of your time; your powers stronger than Bellatrix’s.”

“You will be under the invisibility cloak and that’s final!” The Dark Lord says, “You and Ms. Lestrange are our greatest hopes of winning.”

“You have to think of yours and Draco’s future. Your children will be the heir of the Malfoy’s. We need you safe.” Lucius interrupts

I sigh and roll my eyes, “Okay. I will do it on one condition. Draco doesn’t get hurt”

“I will be by your side the whole time, I promise baby. Nothing will happen,” Draco reassures me

Before Draco can finish his sentence, the Dark Lord says, “Draco, you will be under the cloak as well. Double the strength, the better. Now back to work everyone. War will be soon.”

Me and Draco go to the Room of Requirements to work on the vanishing cabinet

“Babe...” I say

“Yes love?” He asks

I look at him with worry in my eyes, “I have to tell Pansy about what’s going on. That’s my best friend, I don’t want something happening to her”

He grabs my hand, “Let’s talk to our parents about it. I’m sure they will be fine with it since Crabbe, Goyle, and Blaise know. Plus whom her dad is. She will need to get it eventually anyway.”

“Okay, let’s go” I say

We apparate to Malfoy Manor and go to the office

“We need to talk to you about something” Draco says

“What is it Draco, Sky?” Lucius asks

“You know Cassius Parkinson, correct?” I ask

Lucius looks confused on why I’m asking, “Yes, what about him?”

“He has a daughter, Pansy, my best friend. Can we get her the mark, so she will be safe? She’s bound to get the mark anyway” I say to him

The Dark Lord replies, “Bring Miss Parkinson here, and we will get her the mark”

I apparate back to Hogwarts and bring Pansy back with me

“Sky, what’s going on?” Pansy asks me

“Pansy, you have to get the mark. It’s for your own safety, please don’t argue with me right now. I will explain everything later. I promise,” I tell her

Pansy sticks her arm out as you hold her other hand. The Dark Lord gives her the mark. She flinches but handles it like the bad bitch she is.

Narcissa looks at her, “We will protect you, but you must listen to Sky and Draco at all times.”

You and Pansy are in the Room of Requirements and you tell her about the mission

“Pans, listen I only wanted you to get the mark because I needed you safe”

She looks at me, “I know. I’m not mad, my time was coming anyway. What do we have to do?”

Blaise, Goyle, Crabbe and Draco come in

“What is Pansy doing here? She can blow the whole mission Sky!? Blaise says

She pulls her sleeve up and shows them

“Oi, welcome to the crew. When does it start Malfoy?” Goyle asks

He looks at me, “Ask Sky, the Dark Lord put her in charge of the mission. Before you say anything; no I’m not mad. I know she’s the best for the job and I trust her.”

Blaise glances at me, “Well Sky, what do you need from us?”

“Blaise, you stay with me and Pansy. Dray, Goyle, and Crabbe, go to the spot and bring the stuff. Take the cloak so you don’t get caught” I announce

Draco kisses my forehead, “Be careful love. We won’t get caught unless these two dumbasses find food.” He snickers, “Blaise, you take care of my woman and Pansy.”

Blaise snickers back, “More like, your wife should be protecting us. Just kidding mate. I got you”

Pansy

I knew the day would come that I had to get the Dark Mark, and the fact my best friend wanted me to get it to be safe, I couldn’t be mad at her.

“So how does this work exactly?”

Sky takes the cover off of the cabinet, “We have been using different items, putting them in the cabinet and they transport to Borgin and Burke’s. They do something to the item and send it back. The cabinet will be used to get everyone into Hogwarts the night of war.”

Blaise says, “When Draco misses classes, this is what he’s doing.”

“Why didn’t you do it Sky? You could’ve done it in a day.” I ask her

She giggles at me, “I wanted Draco to do it so he can learn to have some patience. Something so complex as this needs time to be done. It gave him practice with his spells too. There’s a reason I do things the way I do Pans, you know this.”

“He has become more patient from this for sure. There’s a reason you were put in charge. Do you think anyone has suspected anything?” Blaise asks Sky

“No, they just think the sneaky Slytherin stuff, doesn’t help that not only am I the daughter of Severus Snape, but I am now a Malfoy. More people are scared of me, which is fine by me. Less Gryffindorks messing with me.” She says in a calm but funny way

Draco, Crabbe and Goyle return and of course the two dumbasses have food

“Don’t say anything my love. Goyle and Crabbe were hungry as usual.” Draco tells Sky

Goyle looks at Sky, “I brought you back a cupcake Sky. It’s your favorite kind”

“I’m not mad, but let’s finish this shit. I’m tired as hell and want sleep and cuddles.” She says looking at Draco

I really hope I find a love like they have. Only person in this group I could ever think about having somewhat of a relationship with would be Blaise. But that’s a short thought.

Draco

You and Sky get back to the dorm after a long night of getting Pansy up to date

“You look stressed love. Massage?” I ask her

She looks at me before rolling on her stomach, “Yes please. I just hope I don’t screw anything up, to put us in danger.”

“Hey, you’re doing amazing. You won’t screw anything up. You’re a perfectionist, and everything is going to be fine. We all trust you and believe in you. More than you do yourself, princess” I let her know

“Why do you always know the right things to say to make everything better?” she says with her head in the pillow

“Because I know you and know how to cheer my baby up”

I was massage her back and within 3 minutes she was out like a light. I cover her up and cuddle next to her.

Skyra

I fall asleep from the massage Draco gives me.

I can feel the worry in how he is holding me. You know he’s worried for your safety. He doesn’t care about his safety, but mine. He loves me more than anything.

Draco Lucius Malfoy loves me. A boy with broken memories from his childhood. Maybe that’s why we always got a long and we fell in love. We have more in common than anyone realizes.
