On with the story-
Narcissa strode through the great halls of Malfoy Manor, everything was silent accept for the light click of her heels on the marble flooring. The only other people in the Manor were her husband, Lucius and some house elves. Draco had decided to go back for his eigth year at Hogwarts and wasn't due back home for another couple of months. She was currently searching for her beloved husband, but so far she had had no luck, she had something to tell him and she was nervous to say the least.
It took another ten minutes of searching before she finally found him in the small study room on the third floor. She cautiously knocked on the door of the small room and waited, Lucius had been in a terrible mood for the past couple of days. She heard movement coming from behind the door and let out a breath she didn't realize she was holding.
He opened the door, Narcissa noted that he looked incredibly tired and he probably hadn't slept for a long time. He let her through the door and she went to sit in the small sofa in the corner of the dimly lit room. He hadn't moved from the spot at the door, he was simply staring at her.
"Lucius, I need to talk to you" She said calmly, hiding her nervousness extremely well
A few moments of silence passed before he answered.
"And what is it that you would like to talk to me about, Narcissa?" he said cooly
"You may want to sit down"
He did as he was asked to do and sat down next to his wife of the small sofa. She immediately took her hand in his and looked up at him nervously.
"I- I don't exactly know how to say this, but you remember the other day, our date?" she started hesitantly
"Yes, I do. But what does that have to do with anything" he questioned
"Do you remember what happened after said date?"
"Yes" he stated simply, smiling at the memory
"Well, I don't know how to say this, so I'm just going to say it. Lucius I'm pregnant" she blurted out suddenly
She felt his hand go limp in hers and he looked away. Narcissa let a lone tear role down her pale cheek.
"Lucius, say something" she whispered
He stood up and began pacing the small room. Never looking her in the eye once.
"What am I supposed to say, Narcissa? We have our heir, Draco is out heir!" he said, his tone getting progressively louder and angrier
"Lucius, this isn't my fault. I know we already have Draco as our heir, but I didn't plan this; however I do think that this will be good for us. It'll bring us together, after everything that has happened, I was starting to miss the man I fell in love with." she cried, tears freely falling by now.
Upon seeing the sight of his distressed wife, Lucius immediately sat down on the sofa next to her and wrapped his arms around her small frame. She leant into the embrace and buried her face in his black shirt. She felt soothing circles being rubbed on her back and craned her neck up to look at her husband.
"I know this isn't your fault, Narcissa. But you have to understand my shock, after eighteen years I wasn't planning on becoming a father for a second time. I am pleased to hear the news, Narcissa I really am. And I am truly sorry for drifting away from you, I never meant to, I was under so much stress and I feared for our lives-" he was cut off by a pair of soft lips against his own.
"I know you're sorry Lucius, and I forgive you. I love you and I always will, no matter what happens. I too was not expecting to become a mother again after eighteen years, it was a great shock to me too. I had to muster up quite a bit of courage to tell you in the first place, I was so scared"
"And I love you too, more than words could ever express, and we'll get through this together. This child will be loved and cared for completely" he whispered
"I had no doubt in my mind that he or she wouldn't be well cared for and loved, what do you think Draco will say?" she asked
"If I'm being honest I don't think he's going to like it at all, at first at least but he will come round eventually. We'll just have to give him some time to get used to it"
"Yeah, I suppose" she whispered before kissing him softly again "we'll get through this as a family"
