Hermione and Hagrid had a small burial ceremony. Hermione received regular punishments from Voldemort. The fact that Harry was dead was all over the news. People called him a false hero and some said that it was all so sudden, and many people blamed Hermione. For the next few months, people taunted Hermione about it endlessly.

"Draco?" Hermione asked one night as they lay in bed.


"I don't know..."


"We need to work on living arrangements..."

"You can come live at the manor."

"But I want to have a house of our own..."

"Okay... We can look at them at the end of the year."

*** (AN - This is now the end of the year, I'm copying it from the main story)

It was nearing night that Thursday evening. The two went to bed, sleeping soundly and waking up early the next morning. The day seemed to go on forever as everyone waited for the last trip to Hogsmeade. Hermione woke up very early Saturday morning, and made Draco get up. The two got ready and left for Hogsmeade early.

"This house looks nice," Hermione said pointing to a yellow house in a brochure they picked up.

"Yes. We need to find the realtor, so we can check out some of these houses," Draco said. Hermione looked through the pamphlet and found an address.

"They are just around the corner," Hermione said and began to walk faster. Hermione walked up to a large brick house and entered through the main glass doors.

"Hello, how may I help you?" a blonde woman asked behind a desk.

"We'd like to buy a house," Hermione said as she walked up to the desk.

"Aren't you a little young to be buying a house?"

"I guess, but we are married and need a house," Draco said to the woman, whom he found was extremely annoying and fake.

"Who are your parents?" the lady asked.

"Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy, my father-in-law is Severus Snape," Draco said.

"Oh! Mr. Malfoy! How can we help you, then?"

"We'd like to buy a house," Draco repeated Hermione's words, getting extremely annoyed.

"Ah! Okay, what houses would you like to visit?"

"This one," Hermione pointed to the picture she had shown Draco.

"Okay, one moment," the woman said and rang a bell.

A man all of a sudden appeared and escorted Hermione and Draco to the house. Hermione fell in love with it, and Draco already knew he would have no say in whether they bought it or not. It had three bedrooms, two baths, two floors, a living room, and kitchen/dining room. Hermione smiled and looked at Draco, pleaded silently to buy the house.

"We'll buy this house. How much is the cost?" Draco asked, much to Hermione's delight.

"We can negotiate," the man said. They walked into the kitchen, which already had a table and chairs, and sat to talk. They eventually came up with a good price, and Draco was able to pay in two payments. Hermione searched the house over a few times then left with Draco to go back to school.


It was the last week of school, and there was much excitement. Draco and Hermione left for their new house in Hogsmeade the last day of school.

The End...
