A/N: I am so sorry I have been gone for so long, school and midterms and spring break has been so over whelming the last few weeks I just havent been able to get back to the story. I am sorry. I am back for now, and here is a new chapter. I'm hoping to get another written tonight or this week, and get it up for validation.
When the girls woke up they saw that the boys were, oddly enough, sitting on the floor in front of them playing wizards chess. Draco had destroyed one of Blaise’s pawns, which was what woke the girls up. They looked at each other a little puzzled because neither of them had seen, or heard that the boys liked to play or that they even knew how to play.
“What are you boys doing?” Ginny ventured to ask leaning up on one elbow and rubbing her eyes. Hermione just sort of laid there and didn’t get up. She had developed morning sickness, which wasn’t only in the morning it was every time she got up from laying down. She made it a point to not get up to fast and to only get up when she was willing to go to the bathroom to be sick. It had started taking a toll on her, but that is, after all, one of the prices to pay for being pregnant.
“Wizard’s Chess. What’s it look like, silly?” Blaise sort of smirked at her when he said it. And shortly after got up and kissed her cheek before sitting back down and taking his turn.
Draco then stood up and asked “anyone care for a drink? I know Hermione made some tea this morning, although I’m not too sure how much is left. None the less, what would anyone like?”
“Just water for me dear, I’m not feeling too well.” Hermione said leaning up on a pillow with a hand to her stomach. “It’s strange, I can go all day doing all this stuff and then as soon as I take a nap, I get all light headed and dizzy and start to feel sick. This pregnancy thing is going to get annoying.” A semi huff came out of her mouth as she laid back down and closed her eyes.
No one else wanted anything to drink so Draco came back with a glass of water for Hermione and then sat down on the couch in front of her turned to face her. He stated rubbing her belly and slowly humming to her. She opened her eyes and saw that Blaise and Ginny had both disappeared. It was just her and Draco in the living room. “Hermione, my dearest wife, I love you more than anything in this world. You are amazing and I am beyond happy I get to spend forever with you and our child. The day that baby is born will be one of the happiest days of my life. Boy or girl, it doesn’t matter to me. I will love him or her either way. I love you with my entire heart angel.” He said while kissing her forehead. She couldn’t help but smile, she pulled his face down to kiss him on the lips and found herself pulling him down on top of her, he knew this was happening so he re positioned himself so that he wasn’t on the baby. She was slightly turned on her side with her head resting on his chest now. She had never felt so content than she did laying right there with him. It was in deed later than she thought; before she knew it she was drifting back into sleep. She wasn’t too far along in the pregnancy, but everything going on recently had in fact taken a lot out of her. She was exhausted from the day’s events, but her and Ginny both had their dresses, now they just had to coordinate with Fleur and Luna when they were both free to go get their bridesmaid dresses.
The next day Hermione woke up in her bed, making sure to get up slowly so she could make it to the bathroom. She didn’t feel as sick as she normally did, in fact she didn’t get sick at all. So she showered and got ready for the day. She then went down into the kitchen, after seeing that Draco had woken up and gone downstairs already. She saw him sitting down at the table with his back to her. She snuck up behind him and put her arms around his waist and kissed his cheek and smiled.
“Good morning dear” He said to her and he turned around and kissed her. “Did you get sick this morning? I didn’t hear you.” He pecked her lips again real fast before getting up and getting her a plate. He had made waffle mix and was messing around with their new waffle maker. One of their wedding presents was a Belgium waffle maker, which Draco loved because he loved cooking and baking, but not everyone knew that.
Hermione sat down after getting a glass of orange juice. “I actually didn’t this morning, I was sort of shocked. I normally do every morning, but not today.” She smiled watching him mess with the batter and pour it into the machine.
“One or two waffles, baby?” He asked looking back at her. “Two, but can I have one chocolate chip one?” She asked smiling.
“Of course you can. As soon as I take this one off for you, I will add chocolate chips to the mix.” He got the chocolate chips out of the cupboard and placed them on the counter so he wouldn’t forget and then walked over to Hermione who was cutting up some strawberries.
“Make yourself some waffles too darling, I don’t want to eat alone. If you haven’t eaten already that is.” He smiled at the look she had given him and kissed the tip of her nose. “Of course I haven’t eaten yet. When I woke up and heard you in the shower, I came downstairs and made some waffle mix because, well quite honestly, I wanted to play with the new waffle maker, but I wanted to make you breakfast this morning.” She giggled and kissed his lips just as the waffle maker beeped telling him her first waffle was done. He took it out and put it on a plate for her before he started making his own. “I’m going to put one of mine in while there are no chips in the batter. I only want one with chocolate chips, and then I’ll make both of our other ones.”
She took her waffle and started strategically putting butter on it and a little bit of syrup. Only a little bit. Too much of anything recently made her sick. Once she had finished her waffle Draco had finished his as well and he had started making her chocolate chip waffle. When it was done she was even happier than she was in the first place. She got her waffle and again, strategically placed the butter on it to evenly distribute it, but this time she put a little chocolate sauce on it with a tad bit of confectioners’ sugar and whipped cream. She then placed some strawberries on top and handed the plate to Draco, signaling she wanted him to eat it. He giggled as he took the plate “yes dear.” She then did the same thing to hers and the two sat down and ate together.
Just as they were finishing they could hear Blaise and Ginny walking down the stairs. Ginny had talked to both Fleur and Luna that morning and both of them said the only day they were completely free in the next week was today. So both girls knew they were going to be going shopping again. They waited for Fleur and Luna to get the Manor before Hermione dissapperated to the alley in London again just near the dress shop. “Now girls, please remember, this is a muggle shop so we must act muggle. I really don’t feel like wiping memories today. Okay?” Hermione asked while prepping the girls to go into the muggle shop. With the four girls walked into the shop to greet Michelle once again, searching for more dressing for Ginny’s Malibu Blue color themed wedding party
Thank you so much to anyone who has stayed with this story. It means a lot to me. While there is only a few chapters left. I am considering doing a prequel to this as well as a series. The prequel will, of course, come first and I will let you know if and when I decide to do that. Please keep checking back for updates and please keep reading. As always, thank you for reading and please review. I love any constructive criticism.
