“Pregnant?” Lee asked.
“Yes, pregnant,” said Remus.
“Pregnant…” repeated George, who had stood up, “But why would you go to help Harry?”
“I was going to help Harry because I didn’t know what to do,” said Remus, ashamedly holding his head in his hands.
“Not know what to do, Remus,” angrily replied George, “How could you not know? You take care of your family, Remus. That’s what you do.”
“George,” Rachel said, warning him softly.
“What?” asked George, “Why are you defending him now when you were the one asking him…?”
“George!” said Fred a little angry at his brother as he began rising up to eye level to his brother.
“Fred,” said Rachel, grabbing his wrist immediately before the tension got any worse. He looked at her and sat down again.
“Lupin,” said Rachel, “What do you mean you didn’t know what to do?”
“Werewol- My kind,” he said unhappily, “We don’t breed,” he said this disgustedly thinking of how it would be like if they did. “I know that I will have passed on this,” he gestured at himself, “This, disease. My child will become an outcast like me with my wife. I won’t let it happen.” At this Remus held a determined look on his future, staring into the distance.
There was a pause before “Remus you idiot,” was voiced by Rachel in a shocked, quiet state.
“What?” he asked, looking at her. Everyone else was shocked with him as Rachel had said something so unlike herself.
“I said you idiot,” she said with a kind of strength and at that she kneeled before him, held his hands and looked into his eyes, with an ‘honestly-you-idiot-didn’t-you-see-this-coming-look’, without breaking the connection. “I know the future and I’ve seen your child,” he looked at her surprised, “Your amazing, adorable child and Tonks and the baby are fine.”
“But you can’t possibly know…”
“Anything is possible in the wizarding world isn’t it?” she replied standing up and letting go of his hands, “Don’t you know that yet Remus?”
He smiled at her, stood up and hugged her.
A little ahem came from behind and Remus held Rachel by the shoulders and looked down at Fred behind her.
“I’m sorry to interrupt this happy moment but-”
“Alright, back to the important stuff-” said Remus but he was cut off by Fred again.
“Actually I was going to ask for my girlfriend back,” he said smiling. There was a huge pause as Lee and Remus looked from Fred to, a now deeply blushing and shocked, Rachel.
“You two…?” Remus asked looking at them wondrously, smiling, “Since when?”
“After the wedding,” replied Fred who Rachel could tell was beaming behind her as she felt it radiating into her back.
“He’s grinning, isn’t he?” she asked the others.
“A lot,” replied Lee, jokingly as she smiled a little.
Another knock came at the door.
“I’ll get that,” replied George as he walked to the door.
Fred sneaked his arm around his girlfriend’s waist and pulled her down next to him on the sofa. She sat down next to him, led her head on his shoulder, circled her arms around his waist and breathed deeply.
Abruptly, the peaceful moment was shattered, by Kingsley Shacklebolt entering the room.
“Well, what are we going to do?” he asked sitting down in the spare chair.
