My Thanks To All My Readers And Reviewers...Enjoy-S.S

Malfoy Manor, Wizarding World...

Evening saw Snape and Hermione in the company of Narcissa and Lucius Malfoy. The bushy haired witch had known Lucius was leaning towards throwing Severus a bachelor party though she had not cared too much for the idea of some swotty harlot pawing all over her future husband, she had not made mention of the fact to him as she didn't want to come off being too possessive...well not at least until she became Mrs. Severus Snape that was. In truth, the witch had never been an a position such as this before. This was the first time marriage had been on her mind let alone marriage to her reclusive Potions Master boyfriend Severus Snape.

When it came to the meal, Narcissa had spared no expense...of course it had been all acquired on Lucius Malfoy's dime...something he had not had much of a problem with so long as he had final say over the wine. Grilled fish, with a side of salad and steamed vegetables as it turned out made for the perfect meal for the occasion as the three couples filed into the Malfoy sitting room.

Hermione sat with Severus on one of the pearl-white love-seats with gold trim, while Narcissa sat in her favorite armchair with Lucius moving about the room with a glass of wine in his hand. Draco and Pansy were cuddled on the sofa, which had also been pearl-white with gold trim.

The junior Malfoy looked over at his godfather at the familiar scene of Snape displaying affection to Hermione. Ordinarily Snape would have just sat there as if he had not been engaged to the bushy haired witch at all but he had enough wine in him courtesy of Draco's father to loosen him up tenfold. In fact, both Draco and Lucius had been a bit tipsy themselves.

Hermione giggled when Snape whispered sweetly in her ear and pulled her closer to him. She too noted his lack of inhibition when it came to showing her affection in front of the Malfoys. Narcissa smiled as she watch Snape come out of his self imposed shell noting that he behaved more like a hormonal teenager than even Lucius at this time. She had been quite happy for the dour wizard, all the years she had wished for him to have something of a life of his own did more than absolve her guilt for leaving him to marry his best friend.

"How are you enjoying this evening so far Miss Granger..." said Narcissa.

Hermione simply smiled.

"Call me Hermione...we are going to be family after all." she said smiling at the buzzed Potions Professor.

Narcissa smiled back.

"Only if you refer to me as Narcissa...all of this Mrs. Malfoy business is starting to make me feel old." she replied.

"That meal was fantastic!" said Lucius showing them all how drunk he had been.

Draco started smiling due to his own drunkenness.

"Mother...father's having one of his muggle moments." he said before bursting into a fit of laughter.

Narcissa looked over at her husband as he stumbled toward the old record player.

"Careful dear...you remember what happened last time." she said.

"Oh sod all that...I'm fine." replied Lucius taking off his coat and throwing it toward the armchair and missing it entirely.

Hermione arched an eyebrow at this new development.

"A muggle moment?" she asked looking over at Severus who had been reeling from his own drunkenness.

"Y-You'll see." he replied turning his attention to Lucius.

"It's much too quiet in here." said Lucius. "S-Severus...help me out..."

Snape let out a breath and got to his feet albeit with some difficulty at first then made his way over toward Lucius and the record player.

"Oh...you're in for it now Granger..." said Draco clearly as if he were anticipating something amusing.

Snape looked over at the player apparently having as little luck as Lucius in getting it going.

Pansy had been laughing as she watched them. Narcissa started to chuckle some as well. Hermione felt as if she had been watching as the two women were in on some joke that she had not been privy to.

The laughting Mrs. Draco Malfoy turned her attention to Hermione's lost expression.

"Lighten up Granger." she said still trying to keep from laughing. "This happens every so often around here...you'll get use to it...especially being married to Snape."

"I can't find the blasted switch." said Snape showing a bit of frustration.

"Get over here boy and help us." said Lucius glaring at Draco.

The junior Malfoy's eyes widened.

"Father, why do I always have to indulge your insane whims?" he wined as if he had still been that bratty kid back at Hogwarts.

Pansy laughed again and pushed Draco off the sofa and toward his father and godfather.

"Well get on with it Draco." she said still laughing.

The junior Malfoy rolled his eyes and made his way over to the record player. Hermione watched curious as Draco neared the player and flicked it on casually. She had still not known what he meant by Lucius having a muggle moment.

The record started playing and Lucius seemed to know exactly what to do as he started singing along with the tune. Hermione recognized it as the muggle song The Wanderer by the muggle singer Dion...her dad had been a big fan of it when she had been younger and it made her burst out laughing. Apparently Snape had not been the only wizard to have the notion to sing when he had been drunk.

"Oh, well, I'm the type of guy who will never settle down...Where pretty girls are, well, you know that I'm around...I kiss 'em and I love 'em...'cause to me they're all the same...I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em they don't even know my name..." sang Lucius making his way over toward Narcissa as she smiled looking up at him. "They call me a wanderer...Yeah, a wanderer...I roam around, around, around, around..."

Hermione had been stunned taking notice of Snape and Draco providing backup vocals She had been further impressed by Lucius apparently being a gifted dancer as well. He was unbuttoning his long sleeve white shirt as if he had been some sort of muggle rock-star and gyrated his ebony trouser clad hips like the muggle singer Elvis that Hermione's mother had played so much when she was a kid. Was dancing a Slytherin thing?

Despite his drunkenness Lucius had been moving pretty good as he did little things to entice Narcissa as the music continued. Snape and Draco had been doing pretty well also given their own individual drunkenness. The bushy haired witch could not stop smiling as she noted how Snape got into the performance not taking his eyes off her while Lucius continued singing. His obsidian eyes had a glint of heat behind them as he kept in step with Draco.

Given that all three Slytherins had been clad in all black and singing as well as dancing in key one would have believed them to have been a muggle music group.

"Oh, well, there's Flo on my left and there's Mary on my right...And Janie is the girl, well, that I'll be with tonight...And when she asks me, which one I love the best?...I tear open my shirt and I show "Cissy"on my chest..." sang Lucius masterfully changing the original lyric for "Rosie" into the nickname of his wife as he continued to dance and sing like a muggle rock-star...even tearing open his shirt on cue. "'Cause I'm a wanderer

Yeah, a wanderer...I roam around, around, around, around."

Pansy smiled at Draco whom had been less than enthusiastic about his participation but given the amount of fun he seemed to be having...he quickly got into it taking off his own shirt and gyrating his hips like his father making his wife blow him a kiss as he pretended to catch it and place it on his chest near his heart.

Hermione thought the display had been rather cute especially coming from Draco of all people. She thought it amusing that Snape had not adopted the strange dancing style of the Malfoys even if only for her benefit. She wondered just what either of the witches beside her would do if he had given his reserved nature.

Of course her mind had been changed when Snape suddenly came up to her and pulled her out of the chair. She couldn't help but giggle as he just how adept he was at Lucius Malfoy's style of dance preferring to do so when there had been good enough incentive.

"Oh, well, I roam from town to town...I go through life without a care...And I'm as happy as a clown...I with my two fists of iron and I'm going nowhere..." sang Snape taking the lead this time as he danced about with the bushy haired witch. "I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around

I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town...And when I find myself fallin' for some girl...Yeah, I hop right into that car of mine, I drive around the world..."

Lucius smirked watching Snape as he continued to dance singing along as he made his way back toward where Draco had been dancing with a look of shock and amusement filed across his face as he watched his godfather dance with Hermione.

"Yeah I'm a wanderer...Yeah, a wanderer...I roam around, around, around, around." sang Lucius once again taking the lead as Snape made his way back toward Draco as well.

Hermione sat down unable to keep from smiling as Snape's heated obsidian eyes were on her once more. She had known all too well just how aroused the Potions Master had been given his brief dancing session with her...she found herself feeling a bit heated as well as she watched him sing back up along with Draco as Lucius continued the rest of the song.

"Oh yeah, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around...I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town...And when I find myself a-fallin' for some girl...I hop right into that car of mine and drive around the world..." sand Lucius getting back into his rock-star persona. "Yeah, 'cause I'm a wanderer...Yeah, a wanderer...I roam around, around, around, around, around, around..."

His gray eyes flickered with a kind of heat as he looked over Narcissa whom had not stopped smiling since their little performance began. At the conclusion of the act the three witches that had been watching their respective muggle rock-stars got to their feet and clapped for a job well done. Draco wrapped his arms around Pansy straight away and she pulled him into a heated kiss.

"You may just get lucky tonight Mr. Malfoy." said Pansy as she continued to kiss the junior Malfoy.

Draco had apparently liked the sound of that as he continued to return her heated kisses.

Lucius had been no better having pulled Narcissa into his own embrace and began to nearly devour her on the sofa forgetting possibly slightly that they were not only entertaining guests and that Draco had been present.

Snape made his way over toward Hermione. Much to her disappointment, he had not been completely lucid enough to participate in a snogging session with Lucius Malfoy in the same room. Though she could still see the heat behind his gaze.

The Potions Master simply kissed her on the hand preferring to ravage the witch in the privacy of his own quarters. They excused themselves and made for the floo but stop short as Lucius called to them over the sofa.

"Granger one thing before you go." he had said looking up from his evident business of devouring Narcissa.

"You have my attention Lucius." said Hermione wishing the sod would hurry and speak his mind so that they could get to more pressing matters.

"Welcome to the family." he said with a smile. "It's not everyday that someone such as yourself witnesses something so personal from one such as myself...drunk as I may be."

Hermione smiled back briefly.

"Well Lucius...your secret is safe with me." she said.

With that he turned his attention back to his needy wife and Snape pulled her through the floo. Clearly he had been ready to continue their pressing business. As Hermione stepped through the floo and into his familiar Slytherin quarters, she thought it interesting that her future husband still knew how to have fun given his age and his friends had enjoyed the concept of fun as well. Unlike her previous assumption that she would have been stuck with Ron Weasley for the rest of her life, it seemed to her that marriage to The Potions Master was indeed going to be an adventure all it's own.
