Chapter 10: Meet the Family
Hermione woke up the day before the trail. Well, she didn’t really wakeup because she hadn’t been sleeping. She threw her legs off the side of the bed and stood up. Looking over to the clock she saw that it was only five-thirty.
“Hermione, what are you doing?” Ron asked sleepily.
“Hermione, I know that you haven’t slept in days. Get back in bed and sleep.”
“Ron, I can’t! I’m too worried! Everything keeps running through my head. All of these horrid things keep happening! What if we don’t get Erin and they send her back to live with them? What if the Minister won’t hear our case and she gets sent back to them? What if ---"
Ron had walked over and embraced his wife, “Hermione, Malfoy is in jail. We have the pictures to prove that they abused her. They took Jami Potter and held her hostage. We are going to get her, okay?”
“Oh Ron, I just don’t know!” Hermione sobbed and leaned into her husband.
“Now, what did Healer Thomas say? No stress! Now you get your butt back in bed, okay?”
“Yes, Healer Weasley.”
“That’s better.” Ron smiled.
Hermione turned and walked back to bed. She laid down facing Erin. She looked so peaceful sleeping in the middle of the bed, her blonde hair allover the pillow. Hermione gently pushed the hair out of Erin’s face.
“I love you.” She whispered and faded off to sleep.
“Don’t wake her up, Daddy.”
“I won’t, I just need to get a shirt and leave a note, okay?”
Ron tiptoed into his and Hermione’s bedroom and over to his wardrobe. Pulling out a shirt quietly, she motioned for Erin, who had her head peaking in the door, to go back out. Hermione opened her eyes and squinted at the sunlight.
“Morning.” She said.
“Oh no, now she’s going to think I woke you up!” Ron said.
“Daddy!” Erin said marching into the room with her hands on her hips, “I told you to be quiet!”
“I.. I.. she just….” Ro stammered.
“Don’t worry, Erin, I was already awake.”
“Oh, okay.” Erin said and jumped onto the bed, “We were just going to Jami.”
“What she means is, Harry and Ginny want us to come over for lunch. Fred and George will be there, I’m not sure if they’re bringing the kids.”
“Oh, that’s wonderful! Wait…lunch? What time is it?”
“1 – 2 – 3 – 0.” Erin announced looking at snitch- shaped watch that she had gotten for Christmas.
“Twelve- thirty!” Hermione exclaimed.
“We didn’t want to wake you.” Ron explained.
“Ron! You know how I hate to sleep in! Think of what I could have done! Gotten the pictures in order—"
“Contact the speaker again and make sure everything is ready.”
“Done.” Ron said again, “I also, ordered a refill of you potion, wrote the Harry making sure he got his restraining order, cleaned the kitchen and cleaned out the owls cage and Crookshanks litter box.”
“And I helped!” Erin said proudly.
“Wow, you guys. So, should I get dressed for Harry and Ginny’s then?” Hermione said in awe.
“Yeah, we’ll be downstairs when you’re ready. Come on, Erin.” Ron said as the headed towards the door.
“Can you read me more of that book?” Erin asked as Ron shut the door.
“Sure, Quidditch Through the Ages, here we come.”
Hermione took her potion, a shower and then tried to pull her jeans on. She lay down on the bed, sucked her stomach in, she tried everything but the jeans just would not button.
“I need to see if Ginny has any of her maternity clothes,” Hermione said to herself as she gave up on the jeans and slipped into a pair of sweatpants.
“I’m ready, let’s go.” Hermione said, coming down the stairs.
“--- cobbing is ‘the excessive use of elbows to an opponent’. That’s really fun to do as long as the officials aren’t watching.”
“Ron, don’t be telling her to beat up the other players!” Hermione sighed.
“Hey! That’s the point of Quidditch, Hermione.” Ron answered.
“Rubbish, anyways, let’s get going, I’m starving.”
“Good idea.” Ron said. He stood up and picked Erin off the couch. He spun and was gone with a pop!.
“Coming!” Harry called from inside the house when they knocked.
“Bouncy Ferret.” Ron said. Harry swung he door open.
“Hey guys. Come in.” He said. Erin walked in and spotted Jami over I the living room.
“Erwin!” Jami screamed and started hobbling over to meet her friend.
“Hi, Jami.” Erin smiled.
“Look!” Jami said pointing to a small broom hovering about a foot off the floor.
“Whoa! A real broom! Can I ride it, Daddy?” Erin gasped.
“Is it safe?” Hermione asked.
“Of course, there’s no way they can fall off.” Ginny answered, entering from the kitchen.
“Hey,” Hermione said hugging Ginny, “How is she?”
“Oh, Jami’s fine.”
“Can she ride it?” Ron asked looking at Hermione in excitement.
“Yes!” Ron and Erin said at the same time.
“Mine!” Jami announce.
“Can I ride it?”
“Yeah, Jami can she ride it? I have candy!” Ron bribed.
“Ok.” Jami said taking a sucker from Ron.
“Sometimes I worry about them.” Ginny said as Harry joined Erin, Jami, and Ron on the floor.
“Me too.” Hermione agreed.
“Well, lunch is almost ready, just a few more minutes. Fred and George should be here any minute. They wanted to see Jami after what happened and meet Erin.”
“Oh, great! Are Katie, Angelina and the kids coming too?”
“ I think so, we still haven’t seen the twins.”
“Oh Merlin, they must be two months old by now! I feel horrible! I totally forgot!” Hermione said. With all of the confusion and worry, Hermione and Ron had forgotten that Angelina had had her twins.
“Don’t worry, they understand completely.” Ginny laughed.
“Hey, sis.” Fred said opening the front door holding a baby car seat in his other hand.
“Fred!” Ginny said hugging her brother, “And who is this?”
“Chris, here, take him.” Fred said holding out the car seat with a little red- haired baby in it.
“Hey Angelina!” Hermione said as Angelina walked in, “Here, let me help you.” She said and took the car seat that she was carrying.
“Hi peoples!” Nina said as she came through the door after her mom.
“Nina?” Ron said from over in the next room. He appeared in the hallway, “Hey guys!”
“Uncle Ron!” Nina said jumping into Ron’s arms.
“Hey, how’s my niece?”
“Tired! These two won’t be quiet!” Nina said pointing to her twin brothers. Ron laughed and put Nina down.
“Fred, how’s business going?” Ron said shaking his brothers hand.
“Booming like always.”
“Why don’t we all go into the living room?” Harry suggested as he too entered the now- crowded hallway.
“Good idea.” The piled into the living room and all sat down.
“Where are Jami and Erin?” Hermione asked.
“They went to play with the broom in Jami’s room.” Harry answered.
“I’ll get them.” Hermione volunteered handing the car seat with Reed in it to Ron. She walked down the hall and into Jami’s room, “Hey, Jami, Twin is here.” Jami’s eyes lit up and she toddled past Hermione and down the hall.
“Who?” Erin asked.
“Well, you see, Daddy has a lot of brothers and today, two of them are coming to meet you. Their names are Fred and George but Jami called them Twin because they are twins. Do you want to come and meet them?”
“I don’t know.” Erin answered shyly.
“They are really funny and nice.” Hermione said.
“Okay. I guess.” Hermione took Erin’s hand and they walked back into the living room together.
“Everybody, this is Erin.” Hermione introduced.
“Hi, I’m Nina and I am almost six.” Nina announced.
“Hey Erin, I’m Angelina and this is Fred, Reed and Chris.” Angelina said pointing to the babies.
“Mommy is going to have me a sister.” Erin said looking at the ground.
“Oh, really? How come Ronnikins never told us?” Fred asked and Ron turned pink.
“Come here and let me take a look at you.” Nina said.
“Go on.” Hermione whispered. Erin took small steps until she was right in front of the red-haired girl.
“Do you like Quidditch?” she asked.
“Yes!” Erin said looking up.
“Then we are going to get along just fine, come on.” Nina said and led Erin down the hall.
“Well, looks like they like each other.” Ginny said.
“Now, let me see little Reed.” Hermione said sitting down next to Angelina..
“Go ahead.” Angelina said handing the baby to Hermione, “I hear you’ve been busy.”
“Very, the Trail is tomorrow.” Ron answered.
“Wow. She’s so tiny! You’d never guess she was four!” Angelina said.
“I know.” Hermione answered.
“So, how have things been for you two?” Harry asked.
“Sleepless, man. I do not know how Mum did it with all six of us.” Fred said with a yawn.
“And even with Nina spending the night at Katie’s house at least once a week we never get rest.”
“See what great things you guys have to look forward to?” Harry said patting Ron’s back.
“Let’s go again! Let’s go again!” came an excited voice from the fireplace.
“No, Edan, come on, your dad and Kealyn will be here soon.
“Will they squash us?” Edan asked his mother in awe.
“They will if we don’t get out of here!” Katie said and stepped out holding her son’s hand.
“Hey guys, sorry we are late, Kealyn wouldn’t wear anything but her blue shirt so we had to find it and then it was dirty and … well you know.” Katie explained, “GO to Jami’s room and play with Nina.” Edan let go of his mother’s hand and ran down the hall.
“He’s getting so big!” Hermione said.
“I know! How are you guys?”
“We’re still here.” Hermione sighed.
“Uncle Ron! Aunt ‘Mione!” Kealyn said as she ran and gave everyone a hug, “Where is the little girl?”
“Erin? She’s in Jami’s room with Nina and Edan..” Ron told her.
“Ok.” Kealyn said and she too disappeared down the hall.
“Tin!” Jami screeched and jumped off of Fred’s lap to wrap herself around George’s leg.
“Hey Babs, feeling better?”
“Oh yeah, she’s better.”
“Well, I’d better go check on lunch.” Ginny announced.
“I’ll help.” Katie, Angelina and Hermione said. Hermione handed Reed to Fred and followed the rest of the ladies into the kitchen.
“Merlin, to think this isn’t even the whole family is kind of scary.” Katie said.
“Really.” Hermione laughed.
“Hey, you guys were the ones stupid enough to marry into it.” Ginny pointed out. Everyone laughed.
“Must be the red hair.” Angelina said.
“I guess.” Ginny sighed.
“Here, I’ll get the carrots.” Hermione said.
“Aunt Hermione!! Aunt Hermione!!” Nina gasped as she came running into the kitchen.
“What’s wrong?” Hermione asked.
“Erin… she’s all blue and making weird sounds!”
