Chapter 4: I Wasn't Beautiful
Beautiful chapter graphic by FairyQueen from the DarkArts and the Ron/Hermione manipulation by the gorgeous Oppugno!
-3 years later…-
“Mommy! Where is my bow? I wanna wear it now!” a light shout was heard all through the house.
“Just a minute Liza! For a three year old, you are so talkative!”
“Fine! But Me and Cwis are uppose to be at the pway hous by now”
“Okay. I’ll just get my coat.”
Liza was Hermione and Ron’s only child. She had curly brown hair and had the cutest dimples. She was very beautiful and really talkative. Chris, or Christopher, was Ginny and Harry’s son. He looked a lot like Harry except the freckles on his nose. Chris was the eldest of the 3 children. There was Chris, Haylie and then Ricky. Hermione got Liza into the car and headed for the Potter residence.
“Hermione! Hey there Liza!” a pregnant Ginny greeted the two girls.
“Auntie Ginny!” Liza’s hair tossed on her shoulders as she ran to give Ginny a hug.
“Over there by the kitchen. He’s been waiting for you.”
Liza runs all the way to the kitchen with a big smile on her face.
“So? How was the doctor yesterday?” Ginny asked Hermione as they walked into the living room.
“It was fine. We would be getting the results in this week if I am still fertile—wait. Who told you?”
“It was Harry, just before he left for the Auror’s convention. Ron told him.”
“Oh. I told him to keep quiet about that.”
“Where is Ron?”
“I don’t know. I haven’t called him yet.”
Hermione picks up her cell phone and calls Ron. She called a dozen times before Ron finally picked up.
“Hey Ronald! Where are you?”
“Oh um… I’m at the o-o-office”
“What took you so long to answer? I was calling a million times!” Hermione joked
“I-I-I left my phone on silent. We were ha-ha-having a meeting.”
“You seem tired”
Hermione laughed and hung-up. She was greeted by a staring Ginny.
“Seriously Hermione, what’s up with you and Ron?”
“What do you mean?”
“When was the last time you had sex?”
“Ginevra! You do not need to know about my personal life! Especially my sex life with YOUR brother!”
“Seriously! You have one kid which happened during the honeymoon. Me and Harry are about to have four!”
Ginny was right. Hermione and Ron only had sex during their honeymoon and Hermione was quite drunk at that time. Hermione buried her tears with shots of tequila and 3 people practically dragged her to the room.
-during the reception-
”Hermione! Why are you so wet?!” Ron ran up to her.
“I was.. um… chasing a check we were given for a gift and um.. I was chasing it until I got out side.”
“Well, look at you! Your mascara is all over your face and your lipstick is smudged. You look awful!”
Ron laughed and led her to the bathroom. Hermione cleaned herself up, but she was still depressed and she saw the bar. She walked up to it and buried her sorrows with the dozens of shots. Ron, Seamus and Dean carried her to her room and she lay down in the bed. Ron was in the room holding her hand, worried what was to happen to her. Suddenly, Hermione squeezed his hand and said, “Let’s do it Ron! Please!”
After that night, neither one experienced that ever again. Hermione never wanted to sleep with Ron, and they never did. They were close and during her pregnancy, Ron was there to support her. Hermione was seven months pregnant when they received the news…
”Excuse me. Mrs. Weasley, we have a problem.”
“What is it Dr. Winston? What’s wrong with Hermione?”
“She has to go in labor now.”
“WHAT?! I can’t do that! I’m seven months pregnant! It’s too early!”
“I’m sorry, but your child will die if you don’t go into labor now.”
“What are the risks?”
“Early birth may make her smaller but that would be the only problem, except maybe a few side effects like a rash, or something.”
“Ron, be with me!”
Hermione pushed and pushed and the pain was unbearable. No matter how hard she held Ron, she wanted something else.
Finally, the baby was out. Strangely, she wasn’t small, but weighed a healthy 7 pounds. Since it was an early birth, Liza’s skin was a bit pale and her eyebrows were very few, but she grew up well, and living at a house by the beach tanned her skin a bit.
After a few hours, Hermione decides to go to Ron and surprise him. She jumps in her car and waves Ginny goodbye. She drives to Ron’s office and sees Seamus.
“Hey Hermione! Have you seen Ron?”
“Um.. No. I was going to ask you the same thing.”
“He didn’t log in today. I thought he was sick.”
Hermione ran out the door leaving Seamus speechless. She got in her car and searched everywhere. She was fuming that Ron would lie to her and what scared her most was if Draco was right. All these years, Draco was always on her mind. She never thought much of him, but she did. She may have not thought much, but she thought of him a lot of times. She passed every block in search of Ron’s car until she finally found it at a café. She sneaked her way to see where he was, and she spotted him with an unknown female who was thin, brunette and had an amazing smile. “He’s cheating on me?!” Hermione thought and she decided to wait for Ron to get home. She wanted to know where he was when she called, and why he was at the café with that strange girl. She calls up Ginny telling her what was up and Ginny volunteered to baby-sit Liza for the night. Hermione got home and sat on the couch. She sobbed and cried. She was hoping Draco was not right. She was at her ultimate low and all she could do was read. She grabbed a book and read. She read every page until Ron got home.
“Hey Hermione! I’m home! Liza! Come to daddy! Hermione? Are you home?” Ron walks around the house searching for Hermione since no one responded to his call. He finds her sitting on the couch.
“Hey Herm. Where’s Liza?”
“What do you care? You don’t care about us.”
“What the bloody hell are you talking about? I love both of you!”
“How could you say that you bloody jerk! You are the most perverted, sick man I have ever met! You could never love us!”
“I do! You don’t!”
“I don’t love you? What the bloody hell is wrong with you!?”
“More like what’s wrong with you?!”
Everything went silent. Hermione was mad, but she didn’t know why. Was it because Ron cheated on her? Or was it because after everything she had gone through, Draco was still on her mind. Hermione looked up at Ron with watery eyes and she mumbles, “You didn’t tell me I was beautiful.”
“That bloody night! You told me I looked awful!”
“What are you talking about Hermione? I always said you were beautiful! Is this why you’re mad? Because I didn’t say you were beautiful?! For once Hermione, don’t be that vain and self-centered!”
“THAT NIGHT! YOU TOLD ME I LOOKED AWFUL! DURING THE RECEPTION!”
“When you were drenched?!”
“But you were all messed up! You were messy and your make-up was everywhere! You were awful!”
“So that’s what you think about! Draco--”
Hermione stopped dead on her tracks. Was she comparing Ron to Draco? How could she do that?! She jerked her hands towards her mouth and gave a gasp.
“What? Draco? What does he have to do with this?”
“It slipped okay! This still doesn’t change what you’ve done!”
“Oh? So now your mad! What happened to Draco?! I’m your husband Hermione and I deserve to know what goes on in my family, most especially my wife’s life!”
“Oh! It’s my fault now? How dare you!? And I thought you love your daughter!”
“SHE’S NOT MY DAUGHTER!”
