AN: Hay you guys. I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to update. I did have a brake through on one of my other stories, but then I got writers block for what felt like a year, but were only a couple of weeks. Sorry if there are any spelling mistakes, I sent this chapter to someone who was supposed to read it for me and it's been like two weeks so I figure I had better put the chapter up and just not worry about the mistakes. This will be the last chapter; it wraps everything up and talks about what happens for Harry and Hermione when they are adults. I want to thank everyone who reviewed chapter 8.

The next morning Harry insisted on carrying Hermione back down into the common room. She had protested, but Harry simply said "humor me" and she gave in.

"Like I told you last night I am perfectly capable of walking up and down the dormitory stairs." Hermione said when Harry set her down on the couch.

"I never said you couldn't walk up and down the stairs I just prefer doing it this way." Hermione smiled up at him and Harry leaned down to kiss her. Harry went over to check on Jove and found him sleeping happily on his perch; some of its feathers had grown in overnight so he didn't look quite so bad. He then went over to the message board and found a note to him and Hermione.

"Oy, Hermione Dumbledore wants to see us this morning."

"I wonder what that is all about."

"Probably about the fight with Malfoy, but hey now I don't have to go to Divination."

"Harry missing a lesson is never a good thing."

"This from the girl who walked out of a Divination lesson never to return."

"How long are you going to hold that over my head?"

"Only as long as you try to convince me that skipping Divination is a bad idea."

"Who's skiving of Divination?" Ron asked scratching his head and yawning as he came down the dormitory stairs.

"Technically nobody is. Dumbledore has asked Harry and me into his office so he's not really skiving off."

"You're too lucky for your own good mate." Ron said patting Harry on the back. "Well I'm off to breakfast. See you later." Since neither Harry nor Hermione were very hungry they decided to go straight to Dumbledore's office. When they got there they found Malfoy and his father standing in Dumbledore's office. Dumbledore motioned for them to sit down, but no once moved.

"Since you are all here I believe I can begin. Firstly I suppose I should address you Mr. Malfoy." He was speaking to Draco, but seemed to be looking at Hermione out of the corner of his eye. "What you put Miss. Granger through is morally reprehensible. If I could I would send you to Azkaban for it. However it is not within my power to send people to prison and I'm sure if I gave you over to the Ministry of Magic for a fair trial you father would put a stop to it."

"You right of course Dumbledore. I will not let a Malfoy go to prison, especially not my own son." Lucius said with a sneer on his face.

"As I figured. But it is with in my power to expel students from my school. Not only has he tormented other students over his five years, but his grades are substandard in every subject except potions. Erasing Miss. Grangers memory, convincing her she was in love with him, and taking advantage of her for two weeks were the last straw." Harry couldn't help but smile at what Dumbledore was saying. A Hogwarts without Malfoy. He looked away from the rest of the room until he could control himself. As he did Dumbledore got up from behind his desk and held out his hand to Malfoy.

"You think I am going to let you do this?" Lucius asked looking from Dumbledore to his son.

"You have no choice."

"Draco don't give him your wand, will take you to Durmstrang, no matter what your mother says."

"It doesn't work like that Lucius and you now it." Dumbledore pulled his wand from his pocket, pointed it at Malfoy and said "Accio Wand". Before anyone could stop it his wand was in Dumbledore's hands and he had snapped it in two. Inside his head Harry was cheering, he would never have to deal with Malfoy again. Malfoy looked shocked, but he didn't say anything. Neither did his father, they both stood their looking at the remains of Draco's wand.

"Go and get your things Mr. Malfoy, you are no longer welcome inside my school."

"We will get you another wand Draco, Dumbledore can't stop us from doing that." Said Lucius in a triumphant voice.

"I'm sure you will Lucius, somehow, but no school will take him in, new wand or not. Now leave my office and leave my school I'm afraid I have other business to attend to at the moment." The Malfoy's both sneered at Dumbledore and left his office. Harry and Hermione smiled at each other.

"Now I'm afraid I must also punish you Harry. You were fighting and not even the boy who lived is allowed to break that rule twice and get away with it." Harry looked at Dumbledore slightly afraid of what he was going to say next. "I'd say detention for you and Mr. Weasley, I now he was fighting too. That sounds fair to me, maybe helping Hagrid with something."

Harry's smiled returned to his face and he promptly said "yes sir, sounds fair to me."

"Good. Now you two had better get back to your lessons. Tell Mr. Weasley about his detention, when you see him."

"Yes sir," said Harry as he reached the door, but Hermione stopped him.

"Professor Dumbledore, why did you want to see me?"

"Simply to make sure you were alright. I am sorry for the pain you suffered these past weeks, I'm also sorry I did nothing to stop it, but there really was nothing I could have done."

"Thank you Professor."

"Your welcome Miss. Granger."

By the time they got back down to the main school the second lesson had started. Harry and Hermione hurried to the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom, apologized to the professor for being late, and took their seats next to Ron. Once the lesson was well underway, and they could talk without being noticed, they told Ron what had happened in Dumbledore's office. Ron cheered aloud when they told him Malfoy was gone forever and got told off for being so loud.

"But we do have detention for fighting with him." Harry added once the professor had turned away from them again.

"It was worth it. Just think no more Malfoy; we'll never have to put up with him again. I wonder what Crabbe and Goyle will do now that they have to think for themselves."

"I don't think they can think for themselves."

The Gryffindor common room was full of joy that night. To say that none of the Gryffindors would miss Malfoy was an understatement and though the exact circumstances of why he was kicked out weren't widely known they were greatly celebrated. For a few weeks after his departure some of Malfoy's Slytherin cronies tried to take his place and cause the kind of trouble he did, but it just didn't work. No one could make the kind of snide comments Malfoy had made or get away with them, so they stopped trying.

Harry, Hermione, and Ron got full marks for their project in Care of Magical Creatures and Hagrid insisted that they keep Jove since he was so attached to them. Harry and Hermione continued to date until the end of the year at which time Harry found out about the prophecy and lost Sirius. He needed time to adjust. But when they saw each other again over the summer at number twelve, Grimmauld Place they reunited.

Harry told Hermione about the prophecy before he even mentioned it to anyone else. They dated on and off over their finale years at Hogwarts. They broke up whenever Harry lost faith in himself and was sure that he wouldn't be able to kill Voldemort. But Hermione was always there, she never lost faith in him or their love. She reassured him that he was the true hero that would save their world. In the end Harry did defeat Voldemort and proved that he was the hero Hermione had always known he would be.

They married six months out of Hogwarts, moved into number twelve, Grimmauld Place which the Order agreed should belong to Harry since Sirius was gone, and had their first child a year after they married. Harry and Hermione settled into a comfortable life together. Harry became a professional Quidditch player which he was for years until his injuries caught up with him and he retired. During his Quidditch days Harry and Hermione had five more children, fours boys and two girls in all. Hermione took over the post of Transfiguration teacher when Professor McGonagall became headmistress and their family moved to a house outside Hogsmeade. They split the year between their two houses and were very happy.

AN: Well there it is guys. I know the end is kind of short but it does wrap everything up. I want to thank all of you who read my story and reviewed it. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
