Strange Can Be Good
Chapter 13: Happy Ending
(6 Years Later…)
"Daddy! Mommy! Wake up! Wake up!" a cute little voice called, followed by a light weight getting on the bed and jumping up and down. Harry groaned a little before opening his green eyes, rolling over onto his back and sitting up a little. He grabbed his glasses and put them on his face, looking and smiling at seeing his youngest child and daughter, Pandora.
Harry and Luna had gotten married six months after he proposed to her and it had been a lovely wedding. Harry and Luna had gotten Hermione and Ginny to plan the wedding, which they later agreed was probably a mistake. Hermione kept saying that they needed to wait a year, whereas Ginny kept saying they needed to get married right away. Those two finally compromised by letting the wedding happen six months after the proposal. Harry and Luna were fine with that arrangement; they were already in love and truthfully couldn't wait to be married. The wedding had been lovely and Luna had been dressed in a beautiful made of literal swan feathers and Harry in formal wedding robes. The wedding was beautiful and the reception was just as lovely.
Two years into Harry and Luna's marriage, Luna found herself pregnant for the first time. It had been an exciting time for Harry, Luna, James, and Albus, and they were even more elated to find out that the baby would be a girl. However five months into Luna's pregnancy, Luna suddenly began having really bad stomach cramps and began bleeding. Harry immediately rushed Luna to St. Mungo's and had her checked out, fear in both of them that they were losing their baby. It turns out that Luna did almost miscarry, but thankfully she didn't and their baby was still alive inside of her womb. She was put on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy until a week before her due date, where she would then be taken to the hospital. Needless to say the rest of the pregnancy went off without a hitch and Harry and Luna were blessed with their little girl. Luna named her in honor of her late mother because of her blonde hair and grey-blue eyes (like Luna remembered her mother's eyes), making Xenophilius shed several tears.
Now three years later, Luna was pregnant again with her second child (Harry's fourth), and it was once again a girl. Luna hoped she had Harry's hair and eyes, but Harry hoped she would be the spitting image of Luna. It didn't matter, though. All they really hoped for was a healthy baby.
Reaching up Harry grabbed Pandora, settling her down onto his lap and giving her a kiss on her golden locks. With a smile he said, "Good morning, Panda."
Pandora giggled at her father's nickname for her before saying, "Good morning, daddy." She looked over to the other side of the bed and said, "Good morning, mummy."
Luna sat up with a hand on her six month pregnant stomach and replied with her usual serene smile, "Good morning, my love."
"We see Jamie and Al today, right?" Pandora asked, crawling out of Harry's lap to settle herself between her parents.
"That's right, and they will tell you all about what they learned when they get back," Harry said, laughing when his daughter cheered. James and Albus were away at Hogwarts, James in his fifth year and Albus in his third. Those boys absolutely adored Pandora and told her everything that they learned at school, making her excited to go to school. James had been sorted into Gryffindor House, and Albus had been sorted into Slytherin House. He had been worried about that the moment the Sorting Hat had called it out and had written his father, mother, and step-mother about the matter, and each letter in return told him to be confident and that it didn't matter if he was a Slytherin. His true friends would present themselves to him and to trust his gut if everything else failed. Albus had befriended Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius and he was enjoying his school days much better, much to the relief of Harry, Ginny, and Luna. Harry and Luna had a going bet that Pandora would be either in Ravenclaw or Gryffindor, but Harry had a feeling his little girl would be in the house of blue and bronze.
Harry got out of the bed and told his wife and child that he would go and prepare breakfast before they had to leave for the train station to pick up the boys for the Christmas holidays. Picking up Pandora, Harry carried her downstairs to the kitchen and allowed her to help with small things for making the breakfast for them and Luna. Even though they were small, they were big and important to Pandora and he felt good when she felt she was making a contribution to anything. Thirty minutes later breakfast was on the table and Luna emerged from the staircase to sit and eat with her family.
After twenty minutes of eating and talking, Luna smiled and said, "She's moving, Harry."
Harry smiled and nodded, telling Pandora to feel her sister moving. Pandora frowned when she couldn't feel anything in her mother's stomach, but when Luna moved her hand to wear the kicking was happening, Pandora erupted in a fit of giggles, making both of her parents laugh. Luna waved her wand and all of the dirty dishes flew themselves to the sink, and then said, "Let's get dressed and go get our boys."
At Kings Cross Station, Harry and Luna stood underneath the Platform 9 ¾ sign, Pandora bouncing eagerly in between them. Her little grey-blue eyes darted around, watching all of the other parents and children waiting for their own siblings. But what she was listening for was the train whistle to signal the arrival of the Hogwarts Express. And finally, the loud whistle was heard.
Pandora continued to bounce in excitement as the huge steam engine pulled its way into the station, watching as the doors opened and Hogwarts students began to pile out with their luggage. It wasn't long before she spotted two familiar boys that she identified as her brothers.
"Jamie! Al!" Pandora yelled as she took off into the crowd towards them. Harry called after her and he and Luna walked after her, trying to not lose her in the crowd.
Harry let out a sigh of relief when he saw oldest scoop up his little sister in a tight hug before giving her to Albus to do the same. Luna smiled up at Harry and winked at him before walking over to their children to greet James and Albus. And as Harry stood there and watched the scene in front of him, he couldn't help but be glad he took the chance of dating Luna. She may have been strange, but he was certain his life would've never been as great as it was without her. And best of all, he was happy. So long as he had his wife and kids by his side, Harry was the richest man alive.
