Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams?

Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family,
I wonder what would you name your babies?

The next morning, Ron walked Hugo to school. They chatted most of the way, trying to avoid the subject of Rose for a while.

"So, how is school, anyway?" asked Hugo's father.

"It's alright. I like drawing and painting."

"Just like Rosie."

Hugo looked down at the ground, but carried on walking.

"Hugo, you shouldn't be very sad about Rose. We should think happy memories of your sister. Remember, you said to me the other day, and Lily, Rose is happy, having fun and riding white horses."

"Ok. She is, isn’t she? Happy Rose Angel. I’ll be happy if Rose Angel is." the little boy said, starting to smile.

"And she's Rose. She is an angel, but she's still Rosie."

"That's ok too."

They stopped at the school gates.

"Ok, son. Time to go in."

"Bye bye Dad." said Hugo, hugging him.

 Ron smiled, and waved to his son, as he ran, happily into school. At least she wasn’t forgotten, he thought.

On the walk back, Ron thought.

Back at home, Hermione was cleaning the kitchen.

"Hermione? You know how when the kids were born we quit work?"

"Mmmhhmm." the women replied, continuing to wash the counter.

"I was thinking of going back. Rose was always asking why I didn't go to work. She said I should."

"That'd be good, dear. You don't really need to stay at home now that Hugo has gotten a bit older and Rose....."

"Yes. That was what I was thinking. I’m going to go and see Harry about a job, later on." replied Ron, a look of gladness sliding onto his face.

"Good luck, but I doubt that you'll need it. Harry's your brother in law; he’ll give you the job. And even if that doesn't happen, you’re one of the best aurors. He'll be glad to take you back."


Ron arrived back in the house at 5.15pm.

"Hello! I'm home." called Ron, with a slight amount of cheer, which Hermione could tell that he had gotten the job.

"Dad? Did you get it? Did Uncle Harry give you the job?" asked Hugo, running up to him.

"Yes, my boy! I got it. I was dead nervous that Harry was gonna say no, but he didn't! I start tomorrow!" Harry said, picking his son up.

"That's brilliant! Congratulations, darling!" Hermione replied, kissing Ron.

"Eww! That's yucky!" said the child.

"Just wait 'til you get older, it won't be so yucky then."

Ron put his son down.

"Anyway, you’re just in time for dinner. And I invited Harry, Ginny, James, Al and Lily over." said Hugo's mother.

The doorbell rang.

"That'll be them."


They sat down to dinner. The Weasley’s and The Potter's were quiet.

"Rose would've liked this." said Albus, sadly.

"Al!" James elbowed him in the ribs.

"No, it’s alright. She would have." said Hermione.

The families were silent for a few seconds.

"My Dad said that we should think of good memories of Rose. That she's happy, having fun and riding white horses. When we think of Rose, we shouldn't be sad. She wouldn't want us to be. Be happy, she’d like that." Hugo said, a smile sliding onto his face at the end.

That touched all of them, especially the parents. Throughout the dinner, everyone was happy. Though the thoughts of Rose had not left their heads, they were good memories.


At the end of the night, Ron and Hermione talked again.

"What do you think Rose would have done in the future, Ron?" asked Hermione.

"I think she would've gone to Hogwarts, loved it, got straight A's, passed her OWL's and NEWT's with flying colours and gotten a great job. Then she would've travelled the world, and met a nice guy who she married and had kids with. And lived happily." replied her husband.

"I wonder what she'd have named her kids? Or what job she'd have? All the questions, I wish I'd asked."

"Last time I asked, she said she was going to be a ballerina or a princess. Princess Ballerina Rosie."

"She's ok, Ron. She's ok.”
