AUTHOR'S NOTES: Here comes the fluffiness… Anyway, thanks for those who stood by this story…I enjoyed every word, every line, every paragraph…huhuhuhu!
"Before I announce the first runner-up, I'd like to make it official that the Ms. Congeniality jinx has been proven false and it never existed. We would like to extend our apologies to all those who have been victimized by that petty rumor especially to Miss Eastwick who's the winner of the Miss Congeniality award." The crowd gave a polite applause. Diana nodded at the emcee.
"So, Ladies and Gentlemen, the first runner-up of the Miss Magic competition is Miss Diana Eastwick!" Hermione's jaw dropped while Amanda and Diana jumped up and down, hugging her and congratulating her. "Ladies and Gentlemen, give it up for our new Ms. Magic, Miss Hermione Granger from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry."
"Holy cow, Hermione won!" Ron yelled. The Hogwarts crowd was ecstatic. Pansy, Lavender, Pavarti and the other girls are all cheering and jumping giddily while the guys are whistling.
"She did it!" Zabini shook hands with Harry. Fleur and Pierre are both crying in the corner. Malfoy was standing near the stage entrance, wide eyed.
"Alright Malfoy, Hermione's like my sister and as it pains for me to say this especially knowing who you are, you make her happy more than anyone. So if I ever hear one sniff from that girl because of you, I'll tear your arse apart. Got it?" Harry said as Zabini brushed Malfoy's suit.
Hermione saw her parents who are kissing and hugging. Narcissa Malfoy is wiping her eyes and cheering her on.
"Oh my God, how the hell did that happen?" Hermione whispered in Diana's ear.
"You got to be kidding me! You're Hermione Granger, of course you win!" Diana smirked at the Gryffindor.
"Alright Ladies, please back up for a moment so we can proceed with our symbolic awarding of the crown." The candidates who are greeting Hermione went behind the new Ms. Magic.
"This crown has been passed on to different ladies who carried the title and today, we are going to honor that tradition as we crown Ms. Hermione Granger. We must note that to validate her position, the crown must accept her as its true wearer. The last time that the crown flew out was a couple of in 1822 and the winner was left to live a life of shame and dismay." Hermione's jaw dropped. What if the crown didn't accept her? That would be the most embarrassing moment ever.
Three men who are wearing suits with red sash appeared, carrying the crown that Harry, Ron, Malfoy and Zabini presented to Salem Institute during the opening ceremony.
Hermione's parents are holding each other tightly while Andromeda is sitting on her seat, calm and collected unlike Narcissa who's starting to become a mess due to her surging nerves.
The men placed the tiara on Hermione's head and everyone was surprised when the diamond studded tiara glowed and the white pearl pieces in the tiara changed colors, some are pink while others are yellow.
"Does that mean anything?" Romilda Vane asked the older girls.
"It means everything. The crown not only tells if the person deserves the title but it also tells the character of that person." Lavender said with amusement.
"Pearls symbolize innocence and purity while the color pink is for Healing, friendship, tender romantic love and yellow is for creativity, mental power, wisdom, scholarship, generosity, prosperity, success, cheerfulness." Padma Patil said.
"Those are everything that Hermione is and what she believes in." Ginny said,
"Congratulations Miss Granger, you are officially our new Miss Magic." Hermione sighed deeply. Harry and Zabini are standing behind Malfoy who's gazing at the new beauty queen intently that it gave Harry an idea.
"Go get her!" Harry pushed Malfoy to the stage, much to everyone's surprise. The audience gasped at the sight of a flustered Draco Malfoy. Hermione's face suddenly went warm and she couldn't stop herself from shaking.
"What the hell is he doing?' Ron said.
"Mind your language, Ronald Weasley!" Mrs. Weasley said.
Draco turned back to face Harry who's giving him a two thumbs up. "I hate you." He mouthed which made Zabini and Harry laugh.
"Young man, you're not supposed to be on the stage." The emcee told the Slytherin.
"It's alright, please let him stay." Hermione quickly said to spare Malfoy the embarrassment of being driven out of the stage.
"He's right, this is your moment. I'll just go." Malfoy said, half-heartedly.
"Please, stay." Hermione walked towards Malfoy and hit him on the back of his head.
"What did you do that for? That hurts!" The blonde Head Boy retorted. Everyone is watching the two with great enthusiasm.
"That's for being an idiot!" She said. Malfoy is rubbing the back of his head.
"That's all that I'll get? After all what - " Before he could get anymore words out of his mouth, Hermione cut him off with one of the most passionate kisses he has ever received in his young life.
"That is so sweet." Pavarti squeaked.
"– More like cheesy." Seamus received a glare from the girls.
"Shut up Seamus!" Ron said.
"You know what could make this even more interesting?" George asked the Hogwarts crowd.
"KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS" The students chanted and even Hermione's parents joined in.
"KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS"
"KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS, KISS" Hermione blushed madly while Malfoy is grinning at the crowd.
"We better give them what they want then." He cupped Hermione's cheeks and gave her a snog that made the girls giggle and the men whistle.
"Ladies and Gentlemen thank you for joining us and we'll see you again next year in Hogwarts." The emcee said. Hermione and Malfoy are still snogging the living daylights out of each other. Some of the audience went straight to the exit doors while the Hogwarts crowd rushed towards the couple.
"Andy, you owe me!" Narcissa told her sister.
"I know!" Andromeda smirked at her sister.
"Why do I get the feeling like I'm in a sappy love story?" Neville muttered, earning a creeped out stare from everyone.
All was well for everyone. Amanda Spellman took over her father's foundation and released a line of 'Child Security Dolls' named Amanda, Diana and Hermione. Diana Eastwick began her career as a model for Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes and ended up creating some products of her own. She and Diana are closer than ever. Rolf Scamander became a naturalist and is currently keeping a steady relationship with Luna Lovegood.
Harry became an auror as he waits for Ginny to graduate. On their return, he began training and a series of screening from all of Ginny's brothers.
Blaise Zabini got an invitation to join the organizers of the Ms. Magic competition but wisely declined for a much higher position as a diplomat.
Fleur gave birth to a stunning baby girl while Pierre went to design clothes for Hermione's clothing line.
Narcissa Malfoy had to endure months of paperwork to get her husband out of Azkaban. When she finally did it, she took the reigns in the family.
George expanded Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes and became the first Wizard to hit the 9-digit mark at age 30.
Ron went to live with Charlie and try out raising dragons but went on to become a curse breaker like Bill.
Hermione and Draco graduated at the top of their class, Hermione being the valedictorian, to no one's surprise. After graduation, they moved in to Hermione's house that she won from the competition. Draco is training as a Healer and goes home everyday to his pregnant wife. Hermione became an author while on her maternity leave from being a well-respected Magical law consultant.
As for Agatha Spellman, let's just say that she's sweeping it all off…as a janitor in Salem Institute.
