I rolled my eyes, "James, I need to decide what to wear."
I heard him get up and he walked into the bedroom where all my clothes were exploded onto the floor.
"Blimey Reese, it looks like the wardrobe threw up in here."
I gagged, "Please don't talk about vomiting right now, I haven't thrown up in two days!"
I started fist pumping and he raised an eyebrow at me. I ignored him; this is the longest I've gone without being sick. IT IS A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION PEOPLE!
He sighed and ran a hand through his hair, "Reese, we're going to be late, can you please hurry up?"
I folded my arms and grunted in annoyance, "Well, nothing fits me!"
He frowned, "But you're not showing yet." I nodded thoughtfully, yes I wasn't showing yet (thank Merlin), but my boobs had gotten bigger and when I put on a nice top or dress on, it was suddenly tighter around the chest area.
Most girls would love having bigger boobs, but at the moment, they hurt so much. I kept biting my lip but James picked a random dress and threw it at me.
"Put this on, it'll be fine." I rolled my eyes but when I saw it, I brightened. It was this cute little summer dress that had short sleeves and was pale blue.
Although when I put it on, my boobs were so obvious I had to push them down a bit. I left my hair down and walked out. James smiled at me and said, "Looks great. Now can we go?"
I nodded and grabbed some flats. When I looked at the clock, I saw the time. "James! It's 5:30! We're half an hour early!"
James rolled his eyes, "Yes, but it takes an hour to get to the bloody place and we're meant to be there at 6."
He just shook his head, "Doesn't matter, just floo to my parents’ house, I'll catch you."
I nodded and he disapparated with a crack. The healers told me I wasn't meant to be using floo powder, but for the first few months it should be okay. Obviously when I'm the size of a whale I won't be using it, but we'll deal with that when the time comes eh?
When I flooed to the Potter's living room, I saw all of them waiting for me. I smiled nervously, "Hello... sorry we're late."
Ginny shook her head and said, "It's alright; now let's get all that ash off you."
I nodded and she flicked her wand at me so all the dust flew into nothingness.
When I had been cleaned, I hugged Harry. "Happy Birthday Harry!"
He patted my back awkwardly and said, "Thanks. But we should really get going."
I nodded and muttered another apology. He just waved it off and threw James the keys. Lily stepped in, her eyes wide, "James is driving?"
Harry nodded and James rolled his eyes, "Lil, don't worry I'm a good driver."
Lily caught my eye and winked. Ever since Harry found out I was pregnant, he decided to teach James how to drive. Even though he's been able to drive since he was 15, he's never actually gotten his license. And now, actually having his license, Harry's making him drive everywhere.
We all get in the magically enlarged car and James starts to drive. Lily grumbles, "Why couldn't we have flooed? Or apparated?"
Al rolled his eyes from next to me and replied in a sardonic tone, "Because it's a muggle restaurant Lil. If you appear out of nowhere, they're all going to have heart attacks. And I don't think the Ministry would be too lenient on us breaking the Statute, even though we are Potters." Lily's ever mature response was to stick her tongue out.
When we finally arrived an hour later (Dom chose the restaurant saying it was good food, even though it was an hour drive), my legs went completely numb. I got out of the car and nearly tripped over straight away. Lily laughed loudly but when she got out, she did the exact same thing. She laughed even harder at this but Harry, being the sweet and caring father he was, helped her up and led her to the restaurant. James placed his hand on my back and led me inside the restaurant. When we entered we saw that everyone was already there. Seriously, we were the last ones to arrive.
Even Charlie was here! He was usually the one that's always late. Ginny apologises as we sat down. I sat next to James on my left and Rose was on my right, who mutely handed me a menu. After I said hello to everyone, I started looking at the menu. For some reason, I felt as if a lot of people were staring at me. Rose instantly turned to me when I looked up from the pastas and she started gesturing wildly with her hands, but still not talking.
"Um... Rose, I have no idea what you're going on about." I looked over to Al in confusion, who shrugged.
She leant over to me and whispered, "Reese! You're boobs! They look huge! They're even bigger than Roxy's now!" Automatically I looked at Roxy's chest area, another thing that was unfair, she got amazing boobs and no matter what she does, they will stay perfect at any time.
Okay moving on, I sound like a freaking lesbian.
I laughed and told Rose, "It's the pregnancy. And is it really that obvious?"
Rose looked down at my chest region again and then looked me square in the eye, "Yes Reese it's obvious. Everyone noticed! Even Nana Molly probably noticed it!"
I snorted and Rose conceded, "Well probably not, but they've grown!"
At this point Lily turned around from her conversation with Hugo and said, "What you mean Reese's tits? I know right! They're huge!"
And she didn't even say it quietly. The whole restaurant probably heard her. It was such an awkward silence and everyone stared at me. I self-consciously wrapped my arms over my chest, trying to hide my cleavage but probably only succeeded in making it worse. Rose burst out laughing and I could tell all the males of the family were looking awkward. Everyone was trying not to look at my boobs but failing immensely. After a few long awkward moments everyone finally returned to their conversations.
Lily and Rose were practically crying at this point. Hugo's ears were a bit red at the top and most of the other guys (sans Louis and Fred) turned a bit pink. Fred shamelessly checked out my apparently 'huge tits', shrugged and continued searching the menu. Louis stared at them for a full minute but stopped when he noticed James was glaring furiously at him.
When the waitress came I wanted to go on my knees and cry, 'MY SAVIOUR!' because really, this could not get any more awkward.
As soon as she came, she said in this over-cheerful tone, "Hi! My name is Cindy and I'm going to be your waitress tonight! What did you guys want to eat?"
My mouth would hurt from all that smiling. But Cindy the Waitress seemed to actually enjoy her job. I know I wouldn't like it. So many people were so rude and with a clan like ours, it would be awful taking all their meals at once. And it was a muggle restaurant so she wouldn't be able to use magic to send them all out at once.
But, Cindy the Waitress loved it and I swear, when she was reciting the specials, she looked like she was going to burst into confetti from excitement. And then when we order, she was practically skipping her way back down to the kitchen!
Roxy looked at her in disgust and said, "How can someone be so happy all the time? It would make me want to shoot myself." I laughed because that's what I was just thinking.
Rose commented dryly, "So sweet of you Roxy." Roxy gave her a smile that would make most men faint from being too horny.
When the table next to us got their food, the smell of fish was drifted my way and it made me want to throw up.
I will continue this streak of two days!
It settled a bit, but another smell is wafted my way and I know I need to get to the bathroom. I stood up and said, "Sorry, you'll have to excuse me for a moment." I grabbed my bag and tried to walk fast without looking like a maniac. When I finally reached the bathroom, I ran to the nearest cubicle and threw up in it.
A muggle teenager looked at me in disgust and I resisted the urge to shoot her the finger. Bitch, I'm pregnant, I can be sick wherever I want to be.
Luckily Rose came to the rescue and after I washed my mouth out, she fished me a mint out of her purse. I gratefully accepted and told her, "I hate being pregnant. I'm sick all the time."
She nodded and said, "Well at least it's healthy for the baby."
I rolled my eyes. "Then this baby will be the healthiest baby in the history of all babies because I spend all bloody day in the bathroom!"
Rose smiled slightly. "Are you okay though?" I nodded and she threaded my arm through her own. "Well we better go back to the table," I nodded again and she continued, "Seriously Reese, your boobs are huge! You should be thankful!"
I laughed, "Rose, they are so sore, you have no idea." She rolled her eyes and pushed the door open. When we got back, I noticed everyone was staring at me again.
Immediately I checked to see if a bit too much of my chest was showing. But no. I glanced back up and smiled nervously at all of them. After a while everyone returned to their conversations and James leant towards me.
I nodded, "It was nothing, don't worry." He raised his eyebrows and his expression clearly read 'I'm not stupid'.
Well I beg to differ, if you weren't stupid, I wouldn't be in this position at the moment.
He kept giving me that look until I gave in. "Fine. I was sick. Happy?"
He frowned adorably, "Why would I be happy that you were sick?"
I rolled my eyes, "No you twit, I'm asking if you're happy that you know?"
"Oh. Yeah, sure. Anyway did you need to go home or something?"
Naw, he was cute. "Nah, I'm okay. It's just the pregnancy."
He smirked and whispered, "Just like those?" and gestured to my chest area. Arse. I slapped him and he laughed at my pitiful attempt. "So am I going to be introduced to them tonight?"
I'm pretty sure my face bloomed bright red. I shake my head and tell him, "No way. They hurt and you are not going to be 'introduced' to them."
James then shot me this adorable look and I couldn't seem to say no. If my child inherits that look, then he or she will be the most spoilt child to ever walk on this earth.
I tried to keep my ground but it didn't work. "No." More puppy dog eyes, "Probably not." No! Stop pouting! "Indefinitely. Stop that!" He smirked and I got butterflies.
It's probably the pregnancy.
No! I'm serious! Apparently I should feel some fluttering or something.
So it has nothing to do with James.
My argument is fool proof. You cannot argue.
I'm right. Stop trying to prove me wrong.
James laughed a bit, which made me worry if he could read minds, but he quickly pecked my cheek and returned to his conversation with Fred, who hadn't even noticed James wasn't paying attention.
Rose raised her eyebrows suspiciously and asked, "What was that about?"
I tried to shrug innocently but she narrowed her eyes at me, "Reese, your face is as red as my hair. Tell me."
I shook my head and said, "Nope. Not even if you give me a lifetime supply of peanuts."
She looked taken aback but I continued thoughtfully, "Wait no. I take that back. If you give me a lifetime supply of peanuts, I'll tell you."
James groaned and I smirked. I've been having really bad cravings for peanuts lately; it's been driving James insane. All I do is eat peanuts. When Louis found out, he called me a 'nut-muncher' and said, "Yes, that was supposed to be dirty."
What a prat.
Anyway, odd ramble aside. We all ate our food (I stayed clear away from the fish), sang a chorus of 'Happy Birthday' to Harry and then ate the massive cake Mrs Weasley made.
Seriously, it must have been about three feet in diameter.
But then I thought about it. There was 27 people at the table, 25 of those 27 are Weasleys, one person is half werewolf and the last person is pregnant with a quarter of a Weasley.
That's a lot of food.
So I guess it all worked out.
When we got back to the Burrow, my wand flew out from my bag. Immediately Louis grabbed it and pretended to throw it in the fire.
I put my hand over my mouth and said in a snobby voice, "THAT IS MAHOGANY!"
I started laughing at my own joke, but sadly, no one got it. When I tried explaining that it came from the best book series of mankind, they rolled their eyes.
We all got together in the extended dining room so Harry could open his presents. He mostly got clothes and some cologne. Although Ron and Hermione gave him a pair of mismatching socks and some very odd vintage dress robes.
I don't think he'll be wearing that very often.
After another round of cake (I think Mrs Weasley made about seven. You know, just in case the other six got trampled on by a horde of hippogriffs), we all started to head back to our own homes.
As soon as I came flying through the grate, James caught me and twirled me around.
However it lost the romantic effect because I had to go running to the bathroom.
5 points for trying?
Thanks for reading guys! I'm sorry for the slow update but I have so much school work :( I don't own the 'THAT IS MAHOGANY', that goes to Suzanne Collins and Gary Ross :p anyways, I'll try to update here and there, but in the meantime, please leave a review :D
