Hermione and Harry stepped into Kingsly’s office and closed the door behind them. Kingsly went and sat at his desk, motioning them to sit in the leather chairs in front of his desk. They sat in silence for a while, listened to him shuffling papers, and the Aurors leaving the meeting room. Then, Kingsly cleared his throat and went straight to the point.
“I’m sorry to put this on you, Hermione. You didn’t have to do that, and Harry I know that you’re upset about this, but you have my word Hermione will not be harmed in anyway.”
Hermione glanced at Harry, who was staring at Kingsly with an odd expression of worry and sadness.
“Harry are you ok?” she asked gently.
He nodded curtly and found his voice, “I’m ok Hermione it’s just that I’m in shock, I can’t believe that you’re actually going to marry Malfoy… I mean it’s not real.
Kingsly chuckled at that, “Yes well it’s a shock to everyone, and now that’s settled, let’s talk about this assignment.
He glanced at Hermione and spoke “So Hermione you will need to go to Malfoy Manor as Draco’s faithful and loyal wife, and must not let him know that you are spying on him for us.”
Hermione nodded wordlessly.
Kinsley continued, "This is a very dangerous assignment Hermione, you must play your part well, with feeling, and meaning. If not I fail to think about the consequences and knowing the Malfoys, it will be severe. So I shall ask you one last time, are you positive you want to do this? You understand that… this is a marriage contract; binding clearly “till death do we part”. Moreover, if broken, Death it is."
Hermione nodded, "Yes I am sure I want to do this Kingsly."
Kingsly nodded "Very well, Harry are you ok with this?"
Harry looked at Kingsly, and then Hermione, “No I am personally not ok with this Kingsly but if Hermione wants this than I wish her the best of luck, and I will support her decision no matter what. But if Malfoy or any of his cronies hurt her in any way there will be trouble.”
Kingsly nodded solemnly “Wise words Harry, and don’t worry if Hermione gets hurt in any way Malfoy will be sent straight to Azkaban along with his cronies faster than you can say Help. Would do you think Hermione,” He asked looking at her.
Hermione smiled her thanks at both of them. Harry shook his head smiling, and faced Kingsly.
“I’m glad that’s settled then,” continued Kingsly. Now I am going to explain the aspects of this Assignment, and Harry will need to know this as well, for he is top Auror. What I am disclosing right now is strictly confidential only between the three of us and only us. Is that understood?"
Harry and Hermione merely looked at him showing him that they understood the seriousness of this Mission. Kingsly obviously must have been very nervous about this part, for he went straight for the Kill.
“The reason why Draco wanted me to find a Muggle- born witch is because he has a son. [Ha-ha I waz gonna leave this as a cliffhanger but I’m not that mean lol.]
Harry and Hermione could only stare at him. Malfoy has a son, Hermione thought flabbergasted How’s that possible? She glanced at Harry who looked as shocked as she did.
“What!” he managed to say.
Kingsly on the other hand seemed perfectly calm and even half amused by their reactions. “Well I trust this has come as a big shock to both of you,” He said in his calm booming voice. “So I’ll need you both to listen very carefully while I explain this to you.” Harry just stared at Kingsly gaping, and Hermione was looking expectantly at him. Kingsly was getting anxious so he took a deep breath and began.
“A couple of years ago, after the war; 20- year old Draco Malfoy married his betrothed Astoria Greengrass, as that was his parents’ last request before their deaths. Well a couple of month’s later Astoria gave birth to Draco’s child, Adrian Malfoy. She died shortly after that, due to complications during the birth. And since then Draco has been raising the child on his own, but now that Adrian is growing, Draco needs a wife to help him raise the child. Also, the reason why he choose to marry a muggle- born is unclear, however we have a strong suspicion the he wants us to realize that he has changed and never had the Dark Mark.”
Kingsly finished, catching his breath, looking at Hermione and Harry. “So Malfoy wants his name cleared by marrying a muggle-born, and he gets a mother for his child,” Harry concluded
“Yes I believe so,” Kingsly said looking relieved Harry had grasped the message so quickly.
“And that’s a perfect opportunity for me to marry Draco and spy on him at the same time.” Hermione stated, her mind trying to comprehend every detail.
“Exactly, you got it Hermione, Kingsly said beaming, and now that you know about the aspects of this mission. I want you go home and prepare. I will be sure to let Mr. Malfoy know that we have found a willing candidate. I’ll let you know tomorrow when he will pick you up. Any questions?”
Harry and Hermione shook there heads.
“Alright, you both are dismissed then.” Kingsly said cheerfully.
“Thanks Kingsly,” Harry said smiling as he and Hermione left Kingsly’s Office.
