“I can’t see my feet but they feel huge are they huge?” I asked Sirius as he put on my favorite Beatles song.
Sirius chuckled. “Not Charlee they’re not huge.” Sirius said he took my right foot and started to massage it.
“That feels amazing!” I complimented. “It’s almost as good as sex!”
“Is that so?” Sirius smirked.
“Oh don’t go getting a big head,” I warned him.
“My cousin Andy is coming over today she wants to meet you, I had written to her telling her that I got married and I explained what the circumstances we’re and she wanted to come and meet you, and I want you to meet her and her husband Ted, she’s got a daughter too.”
“Are you sure?” I asked worried. What if she didn’t like me? What if she thought I was a harlot? Okay so being pregnant has made me a little irrational. Would a harlot marry the guy who got her pregnant, I think not!
“Yeah, she’ll love you,” Sirius said. “She was slightly disappointed that she wasn’t invited to the wedding, I assured her that we would have loved for her to come but we had a small ceremony because it was more convenient, I also told her that we sort of got married in jeans, so it wasn’t an extremely dressy occasion.”
“How’d she take that news?”
“I don’t know she kind of seemed a little put out that we were too lazy to get dressed up,” Sirius sighed. “She’s been disowned like me, because she married Ted, he’s a muggle born,” Sirius explained. “good man too, he makes her happy, and I do mean happy, I’d never seen her truly happy until she met Ted.”
“Aw….” I said.
“I still don’t know how I fell in love with you, I mean nothing wrong with being a pure blood I just thought that you know I’d be kind of like my cousin.”
“Sirius, if it’s any constellation, my family, isn’t entirely pure blooded a lot of the people in my family married muggles and some even married muggle born’s like Andy. So even though my family is the oldest my family is also the biggest offenders of you-know-who and his groupies as Mr. Potter so delicately puts it.”
“Yeah, kind of like the Potters.”
“I wouldn’t be so sure of that,” James said. “It’s sort of only my intermediate family I mean I’ve got a couple of great uncles that could care less but a lot of my family are just into that blood status thing, they don’t argue with you-know-who and they join him but they are pretty big pure blood fans!”
“Right…” I said slowly.
His cousin was due to arrive in two minutes I had done my best to not look as crazy as I’d looked for the last few days I actually took time to look presentable, unlike my usual shower and just letting my hair dry a mess I brushed it and pulled it into a loose ponytail and then I put a tiny bit of make up on when I was trying to put eyeliner on, the baby kicked. “Oh god,” I said. “You almost put my eye out kid!” I said to my stomach. So here we sat in the Potters living room waiting for Andy and Ted. Sirius held my hand rubbing circles on the back of my hand lovingly. A short woman appeared in the Potter’s fire place she held a little girl that looked to be about five. She was followed by a tall man that towered over her.
“Andy,” Sirius greeted happily. “Nymphadora!” He said to the little girl as he let go of my hand and took her out of Andy’s hands.
“I don’t like my name!” the little girl huffed.
“what do you like then?” Sirius asked.
“Tonks,” She answered, Andy rolled her eyes.
“Hey Ted,” Sirius held out a hand to shake his. “Guys I’d like you to meet Charlee, my wife.” He smiled putting an arm around my shoulders.
“Wow, Sirius you seriously weren’t kidding when you said she was pretty, described her so well even.” Andy smiled. “It’s really nice to finally meet the girl that has made Sirius settle down.”
“It’s nice to meet you too.” I said, she pulled me into a hug, I was shocked at first but got over it.
We sat and talked for a while, I played with Nymphadora for a bit, she was excited that I was going to have a baby she Told me that if I gave this child a weird name like Nypmphadora she would not like me anymore. I laughed at that, Sirius and I hadn’t given any thought to baby names. I promised her that I wouldn’t give my baby a weird name!
“Thank you!” She smiled and hugged me. When they left later that evening just before dinner, Sirius and I sat in our room staring at each other.
“What did Dora say?” Sirius asked.
“Oh, just that if I gave the baby a weird name she wouldn’t like me anymore!” I said. Sirius chuckled, “We should disscuss baby names, I don’t think we can call it the baby when it’s born!”
“How about a gender nutral name?” Sirius suggested. “That was when we talk about the baby we can actually uses a name!”
“Like Alex?” I asked.
“I like that name,” Sirius said. “It’s perfect, actually it has a sort of ring to it Alex Black.” I nodded in agreement I liked it, I think that it was masculine enough that if it were a boy he wouldn’t be made fun of yet just feminine enough for a girl. “When the baby’s born we can determine then if it’s short for Alexander or Alexandra.”
“I like it,” I said. “Alex it is then?”
“Yeah sure,” Sirius smiled he kissed me.
“So after this one can we have more?” I asked I truly did want more. “You know we could have our own messed up family!”
“Sure we can have more as long as you don’t kill me when you go into labor!” Sirius said. the potters had gotten a TV last year and this summer Sirius was watching all kinds of movies and stuff about pregnancy and usually the woman giving birth was exahsted angry and in pain three things that should never be part of a woman at once two of them together is understandable all three of them is hell, and poor Sirius I wasn’t sure what I’d do to him when that day came.
“Just remember when I go into labor I might take it differently then those wemon on the Tele.” I told him. I totally wanted to make him laugh and be grossed out at the same time. “I’ve had shits bigger than those baby’s heads during this pregnancy love,” I smirked he thought about it for a second really grossed out and then started laughing.
“I love you!”
“I know who doesn’t?”
