"Here they come," Ron said holding my hand.
I smiled as they came up with four children with them. Hermione was holding onto their youngest, Nia who was only six months. Skyler, who was three, was hopping around his father with his two friends, Raven and Jaden.
"Have fun?" I asked them as I let the rowdy kids in the house with the parents behind.
"Always, we need the exercise anyway," Hermione said smiling.
Hermione grew more beautiful after she had given birth to two kids. They had no complications with Skyler and Nia and they came out as soon as she went into labor. Skyler and Nia both had their father's icy blue eyes but as Nia had his blond hair, Skyler had his mother's curly brown hair. They both were growing tall as their dad and most likely going to be annoyingly smart like their mother.
"Guess what I made everyone?" I asked looking at the hungry kids.
They looked up at me in anticipation and waited until finally Jaden asked, "What did you make us to eat?"
"Tacos!" I yelled as the kids jumped for joy. That was their favorite lunch besides pizza.
"That's the third time this week they had tacos," Draco said smiling.
"Gotta give them what they'll eat at this age," Hermione said holding Nia and walking to the kitchen with the others.
We watched the kids as they prepared the tacos themselves. Raven and Jaden were both five so they knew how to make tacos without destroying the kitchen. Skyler loved it when Jaden made tacos for him since he looked up to him. Raven made hers perfect just like the girl she was and stuck her tongue at Jaden's not so perfect taco.
"Don't start," I said firmly and Raven put her taco in her mouth before she said anything else.
After the kids finished they ran into the den and turned on their Playstation 3 and played on a team in a role playing game. We all sat on the couches behind them and watched them carefully so they won't start arguing.
"So," Draco started quietly. "Raven and Jaden haven't had a problems?"
"No, if anything what they have been through made them stronger." Ron said holding my hand.
"It's almost as if they weren't even born prematurely," I said smiling.
"That's wonderful. What are you going to do for their sixth birthday?" Hermione asked.
"We'll think of something," Ron said and smiled at me.
I grinned back knowing what Ron was thinking. It wasn't only going to be a surprise for Raven and Jaden.
I brushed Ravens' long wavy hair into two buns on top of her head so it won't be in the way while she was swimming. Her hair was as black as mine and while I kept mine short down to my shoulders, her hair was down her back to her behind. She had Ron's piercing blue eyes, which to me glowed brighter than his because of the contrast against her hair.
When I was finished she kissed me on the cheek and ran out onto the porch and into the white sand where Jaden and Skyler were already making sand castles. Jaden had his father's brilliant red hair and we let it grow long just like his fathers to his shoulders. He didn't have his eyes though; they were honey brown like mine but a little lighter.
Our present to them was taking them to an island and just having fun. We knew that Jaden wouldn't go anywhere without Skyler so we brought him also. This trip was also our present to Hermione and Draco since their anniversary was on the same day as our twins' birthday.
Hermione came out of the bathroom with Nia in her arms wearing a red bikini that matched with Nia's one-piece. I myself wore a blue one that of course matched with Raven's.
"You are soooo cute!" I said playing with Nia and she held her arms out for me to hold her.
"She is the most friendliest baby I've ever seen," Hermione said as I played more with her. "Skyler wouldn't let anyone hold him until he was seventeen months. My arm was killing me holding him all the time!"
"Most boys are really mommy dependent."
"Thankfully he has Jaden around to play with. I was afraid he was going to be a wuss."
"Yeah, Jaden hardens him up."
As we walked out onto the pouch we saw Draco and Ron playing with the boys and there was another kid there. A dark haired boy with really messy hair and bright hazel eyes.
"Who is that?" I asked trying to pull my hair out from Nia's death grip.
"I don't know, but the weird thing is, he looks just like...."
We turned around to see Harry standing on the porch behind us. We laughed as we went to hug him. We haven't seen him for a couple of months because he said he had to leave to take care of something private. He still looked the same, crazy hair, green eyes, and glasses; he never got rid of them no matter what anyone said.
"Yes," Hermione said letting him go. "That kid does look like you."
"That's because he's my son."
"WHAT?" I exclaimed and Nia covered my mouth. She always did that when someone screamed around her.
"Yeah, it's a long story and when everyone is done playing, I'll tell you," He said and walked with us to the sand where the others were.
Ron and Draco gave Harry a small embrace as if they already knew he was going to be there. They went back to building sand castles and then soon we played in the ocean. Harry's son was named James and he was a very happy kid. I noticed that he had some red streaks in his hair and the same freckles that Ron had.
I perceived that no one had their wands around and that was because we didn't want to practice too much magic around the kids. They showed no sign of them being magical but there were times when Raven and Jaden were Nia's age and they would blow things up around them all the time.
When we were tired and dirty we came back into the large cabin and cleaned up. Ron and I took a shower together and as he rubbed my back he said, "You know, when was the last time I told you I loved you?"
"Ten minutes ago," I said and he turned me around.
He kissed me gently and said, "I love you."
"I love you too."
"When we the last time I showed you I loved you?" He asked as his eyes darkened with passion.
"An hour ago."
"Far too long," He said and kissed me on my neck.
"Mommy how come you and daddy toke so long in the bathroom?" Raven asked when we finally emerged.
"Um...." I started blushing, I was never good at lying and I never lied to my kids.
"Because they have to make sure they didn't have any sand in their bum-bum," Draco said poking her in the tummy and she laughed.
"Now go in the other room so you can join the others in Twister," Ron said and Raven hopped over to the den.
"Now I know you all are angry with me," Harry started.
"Oh of course not," Ron said sarcastically. "We completely expected you to pop up after a few months of no word with a kid that looks just like you and Ginny."
I put my hand on Ron's and he calmed down slightly.
"I didn't know about James until a few months ago either," Harry explained. "I knew Ginny was pregnant but I thought she had a miscarriage when she went away for a while. Turns out she did have James and had him stay with Padma and Seamus."
"Why would she do that?" Hermione said feeding Nia a bottle.
"Because she knew that she was in danger. She knew that the Deatheaters were after her."
"Why didn't she tell us?" Ron asked.
"Because she believed that she was protecting us. Protecting me," Harry pulled out a letter. "Everything is explained here. I found it cleaning up the house in her box of things. It was meant for me to see it when she died but it got lost when I packed her clothes and things up."
"This is weird," Draco said. "So in short Ginny had a baby and had him stay with her friends because she knew that she was going to get attacked and never told any one?"
"Yeah, pretty much," Harry said sadly.
"What will you do now?" I asked.
"Take care of James. It's been pretty hard the last few months since he is still so young and he was used to being around Seamus and Padma. But they made sure that he didn't think they were his parents. He didn't open up to me at first but maybe he knew in his heart that he was my son and he's been calling me daddy ever since."
"That's great Harry," Hermione said and burped Nia. Everyone laughed since Nia burped like a grown man.
"I'm sorry to drop all of this on you so suddenly," Harry said sadly.
"Don't worry about it," Ron said. "At least you get to spend time with James."
Everyone nodded their head and stayed quiet until there was a large shriek in the other room. We all rushed to see what happened and all of the kids were tangled up on the twister board giggling.
"Mom, Jaden cheated," Raven said.
"Did not! It's not my fault you can't stretch your leg out!" Jaden countered.
"Don't start," Ron said and they both quieted down.
"Let's all eat since we know you guys are hungry," I suggested and their faces brightened up considerably.
"Yes! Come on James and Skyler!" Jaden said and pulled them towards the door. Raven just stood there looking like she was about to cry. Jaden stopped at the door and turned to Raven. "Come on, you too Raven."
She smiled brightly and ran after the boys. I shook my head and said, "I feel sorry for her, now she has three boys to compete with."
"It'll make her stronger," Harry said.
"Yeah, and harder to get boyfriends," Draco said.
Ron snorted, "She won't have a boyfriend until she's twenty one."
I woke up feeling well rested after an all-nighter with Ron. I turned over to see nothing beside me except for a large dress bag and a note.
"Put on the dress and come outside," I read the note out loud.
I went to the bathroom first and cleaned up. I assumed I should do my hair nicely so I just straightened it after washing it and let it flow around my face. I put on only rose-colored lip-gloss since Ron likes it when I kept it simple.
I unzipped the dress bag and saw a shimmering silver gown. On the floor beside the bed were matching high-heeled sandals and on the dresser was a beautiful flower clip. I pulled on the dress and its thin straps clung to my curves and flowed down to the ground. I clipped the flower to the side above my ear and fastened on some amber chandelier earrings that matched the necklace Ron had given me. I slipped on the sandals and walked outside off the porch.
At first I didn't see anything but the blue ocean and the lovely sunset that filled the sky with purple and orange hues. Had I really slept that late?
I looked down and saw there was a white and red rose trail leading behind the cabin. I followed it and saw that a few feet away it was everyone dressed in formal clothing, including the children.
I walked up to them and saw that there were butterflies flying around with silver wings. Different colored petals were scattered on the sand and blew gently against the soft winds.
"What's going on?" I asked walking up to Hermione. She was standing with Draco and Harry on one side while the kids stood in a line on another side.
"You look beautiful," She said and kissed me on the cheek.
"Why is everyone acting weird?" I asked and got no response.
"Mama, look!" Raven said pointing behind me.
I looked to see Ron walking towards me in a button up white shirt and matching pants. He had the same flower clip but it was on his chest. He came to me and led me to the space between the others.
"Ron, what's going on?" I asked, a little scared that no one was telling me anything.
"In all these years of us being together, we've never made anything official," He said and suddenly there was popping everywhere. Dumbledore, Remus, Molly, Arthur, Bill, Fleur, Charlie, Fred and George, even Snape was there standing behind us. The biggest surprise was that my mom, Aiesha and Tony appeared also. A preacher appeared before us and he starting saying the marriage ceremony.
"Ron...." I started but he hushed me with his finger.
I couldn't believe it; Ron had arranged everything so that we could get married. We never really talked about it ever since we had the twins. We just went on like a married couple. And it never bothered me; as long as I was with Ron and my kids nothing else mattered.
"Kris?" Ron said bringing me out of my daydream.
"You didn't answer the question."
I looked around and saw everyone's eager faces, "Oh! I'm sorry." I blushed brightly since I completely missed the whole 'I do' thing.
"And now I pronounce you, man and wife. You may kiss the bride."
Ron pulled me toward him and pulled me into his breathtaking kiss. I felt the tears coming down my eyes as everyone cheered around us. I pulled away and rubbed my nose against his, letting everything out.
"Don't cry," He whispered. "I promised myself I would never let anything make you cry."
"I love you so much."
"And I love you, Mrs. Ronald Weasle,." He said kissing me again. "Damn, that sounds so good to me."
Raven and Jaden came up to us jumping with joy and we picked them both up.
"So are we a real family now?" Jaden asked.
"We've always been a real family sweetie," I said to him.
"I just wanted to do this for your mother," He said kissing Raven on the cheek.
"Daddy you're so romantic," She said giggling.
"Oh yeah?" Ron said and started to tickle her.
"NOOO!" She screamed laughing and ran away.
Ron gave me that look and started to tickle me and I had to put Jaden down before I dropped him. I laughed hard and pushed him away as Raven and I ran to the ocean. We trip and fell into the water as Ron and Jaden participated in getting us completely wet. But it didn't matter, soon Skyler and James joined in then eventually everyone was playing in the water ruining their clothes. Except for Snape, he of course stood to the side looking creepy as ever. But I was glad he came in the first place.
So that's it, this is what happens to a girl who dated someone seven years younger than her. Not only that but a boy who ends up being a wizard who lost someone close to him and came alive when he was with me. And I'm sure you all want me to end it with 'and they all live happily ever after.' but no, that's not how I'm going to do it.
What I'm going to say is that we didn't just live happily ever after; all that matters is that we lived.
So there you go, the end of this story. I hope everyone enjoyed it and I know you are all happy that this last chapter was fluffy. I got tired of making so many bad things happening. Please leave all of your thoughts and comments because I would love to hear if you liked the ending or not. Not like I'm going to change it but I want to hear my fans reactions. A friend of mine said that the last quote sounded familiar to her but she couldn't place it. If it does then it wasn't intentional. It just came to me and sounded right.
Since I am ending this story two new ones will be coming out. Actually they aren't that new but I'm reposting them so be on the lookout for a comedy for people who don't take stories seriously and a romance based in the Marauders time. Thank you all again for your support and hopefully I'll see you all again reviewing my other stories. *hint* Prophecy of a Millenia *hint* :)
