Hey! I'm back again!

First of all: Thank you all for the reviews for SoS!

Second: I've decided to throw SotP away, since I just can't bring myself to write it as I planned it. I hope that I will bring this here out the way I've planned.

Third: I know, it's a stupid title, but I wanted another SoS-combination ;p

So, much fun with the first chapter!

Oh, yes:

Chapter 1

Oh, the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" – Vonda Shepard (A Very Ally Christmas)

Hermione stood in front of the window in her Bedroom. She brought her arms around her in front of her chest and sighed. Today was the 24th of December. The sky seemed to almost touch the land, which was unfortunately still rather green than white.

"Mommy, do you really believe that it will snow until tomorrow?" Hermione looked down into the icy-grey-blue eyes of her son. Nathaniel looked at her so hopefully, that she simply had to smile. She stroke over his soft, blonde hair and lifted him up, so that he could sit down on the windowsill. And now, as mother and son were looking out of the window together, she kissed his hair and rested her chin on top of his head.

"Of course it will snow. You will see, tomorrow will everything be white. Your Daddy promised you, did you forget it?"

Nathaniel nodded.

"But he also promised that he'd be back until Christmas." Nathaniel whispered sadly. Hermione swallowed.

"He will be back in time, I'm sure." She whispered above her son's head.

"Have you finished decorating the living room?" she asked suddenly, and tried through this to change the theme as well as the mood. Nathaniel nodded slowly and continued to look out of the window.

"Do you want to show me what you've made out of it?" Hermione reached for his hand and the five-year-old hopped down from the windowsill and took his mother's hand. He led her down the stairs and into the living room. In one corner stood a large Christmas tree. This year they decorated it in white and silver. Everywhere in the room were candles and stars, snowmen and Christmas paintings from the children. 

When Hermione entered the room together with Nathaniel, she saw Felicitas bent over a piece of paper, a red crayon in her hand. Narcissa sat next to her and smiled down at the picture of the girl.

Felicitas looked up and smiled when she saw her mother.

"Mommy! Look what I've made!" she held the paper up to her mother and Hermione took it and looked at it. Felicitas had obviously made a picture of her family. There were Draco and herself. Nathaniel and Felicitas, Narcissa. And Damon and his girlfriend Tori. And of course Thora and Sean.

"It's beautiful." Felicitas smiled proudly up at her mother. Nathaniel whispered something to his sister. The little girl nodded her head and ran after her brother out of the living room. Hermione looked at the Christmas tree and felt a sudden pain in her heart. 'Oh Draco, I hope you manage to keep your promise!' she thought to herself.

She felt a hand on her shoulder and turned around to look into the warm eyes of her mother-in-law. Narcissa smiled reassuring at the young woman and squeezed her shoulder lightly.

"I'm sure he'll be back by tonight!"

"I hope so! I haven't heard anything from him since two weeks. And I have this bad feeling that the next thing I hear will be the message that he won't make it back for the holidays." Hermione sighed.

"You have to think positive, darling. He will be back in time, I'm sure! I'll go and make some hot chocolate for the two. Do you want one too? Maybe some Christmas biscuits with it?" Hermione smiled and nodded and watched Narcissa walking towards the kitchen.

She walked over to the window and looked out into the grey countryside. Only a few more hours until the day was over. She had hoped, that they would be able to go all together to the church this evening.

Damon and Tori were doing some last minute shopping, while Thora was called into the nearby village to help a young woman who was giving birth to her first child today. Sean was out in the forest, making sure all the animals would have a merry Christmas themselves.

But she was sure, that all of them would be back in time. But Draco… She took a deep breath and sighed dreamily. Even when he wasn't here could she smell him everywhere in the house. It helped her to not go insane when he was away.

She knew it was silly, but she loved him more with every day that passed. And each day that they were parted hurt like a century.

"AAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!" She was pulled back from her thoughts by Felicitas' screaming. She turned around and saw her two children running towards her.

"MOMMY!" They were hiding behind Hermione's skirt and panted heavily. Hermione looked confused down at them but before she received an answer  she saw a black figure standing in the doorway.

"Who are you?" She demanded, her eyebrows raised at the intruder while she felt that Felicitas was gripping the fabric of her skirt even tighter in her small hands. Instead of receiving an answer, the dark clothed figure came closer to her.

Hermione pushed her children in the direction of the kitchen and the two understood immediately. They took off out of the living room, Nathaniel holding his sister's hand tightly in his own hand.

"I'm warning you! My husband will be here any minute, and he won't be too happy about anyone trying to scare me, or worse, do our family any harm!" Hermione said to the stranger, her head held high.

But the only response she got was a dry laugh. And still was the gap between the two becoming smaller with every moment.

"What is there to laugh about?"

"You really think your husband will jump out of nowhere and attack me?"

Hermione swallowed and licked her lips. What could she answer without seeming totally stupid? And again this dry laugh.

"See, you don't even believe it yourself!"

Just a few more steps and he would be right in front of her. No way to escape…

"What do you want?" Hermione demanded when he was only inches away from her.

"You!" was his whispered answer as his hooded head bent down to her. Hermione took a deep breath just before his lips crushed down on her own.


"Grandma!" Narcissa turned around and saw her two grandchildren standing behind her. Their eyes were big and their breathing went fast.

"What is it? Can't even wait a few minutes until your hot chocolate is ready?" She smiled at the two. Nathaniel shook his head and took some deep breaths until his breathing had calmed down.

"He's back!!!" He smiled.


Hermione's hands went up under the black hood and ran over the smooth hair that she found there as the kiss deepened. The hood fell off from his head and the light got caught in his light hair, letting it shine almost silvery-gold.

His hands went down to her waist and he pulled her closer to himself. Oh Merlin had he missed her! Three weeks had been way to long to be away from her! Now, as he smelt her sweet sent again, as he saw her beautiful brown eyes, as he felt her soft black hair underneath his hand…

Oh yes he had missed her!

 "I love you Mya!" He whispered in between his kiss. He felt Hermione smile against his lips and broke the kiss to lift her up and carry her to the couch in front of the fireplace.

He sat down on it and placed Hermione in his lap, holding her close to him. Hermione laid her head on his shoulder and played with the fabric of his cloak.

"I've missed you! Promise me you won't stay so long ever again!" he chuckled softly and kissed her on the top of her head.

"When did you know it was me?" He asked silently against her hair.

"As soon as you entered the house!" He raised his eyebrows and though she couldn't see it she knew he did it.

"That's the perfume I got you for last Christmas!" he chuckled again and shook his head slightly when he looked around the room. It was decorated perfect. Everything was held in green, red, silver and gold. Yes, Christmas was the perfect holiday for them.

"The tree is beautiful!" Hermione smiled against his chest.

"Your mother decorated it with Nat and Fee."

"DADDY!!!!" As soon as the word was heard two small figures jumped onto the couch and hugged their parents tightly.

"You made it!" Nathaniel exclaimed happily and Draco stroke over his son's head.

"Of course I did!" He smiled.

"I feared you wouldn't be back in time for Christmas!" Nathaniel admitted. And sat down in his mother's lap. Draco laid his free arm around Felicitas' shoulder and pulled her into a sitting position next to him.

"I would never lie to you." Draco promised and kissed first the small blonde and then the small black head.

"So, who wants some hot chocolate and biscuits?" Narcissa asked when she entered the room, a tray with chocolate and biscuits in her hands.

Nathaniel and Felicitas jumped up from the couch and ran to their grandmother and Draco arouse to finally greet his mother.


A few hours later, everyone was dressed and ready for church. Draco and Damon were carrying Nathaniel and Felicitas while Thora, Narcissa, Tori and Hermione were walking after them chatting about the different Christmas presents they had bought, carefully not to let the two men nor the children hear it.

Sean was outside with the carriages, waiting patiently for the rest to arrive.

Once they had reached the church and stepped outside a small white snowflake hit Nathaniel's nose. He and Felicitas looked up at the sky and saw that seemingly out of nowhere it started to snow.

"Oh! Look, Mommy, it's snowing!" Felicitas exclaimed and took her mother's hand. Hermione smiled at Draco who gave her look that said "Didn't I tell you?"

"Well, if this isn't the perfect start for a merry Christmas." Tori exclaimed and interlaced her fingers with Damon. Hermione smiled at her brother and his girlfriend when Damon bent down and kissed the top of Tori's head. History Larissa Gweneve was 26 years old and inseparable form Damon since three years. She had dark brown, wavy hair with dark red streaks in it every now and then that reached the middle of her back. Her eyes were a dark blue right now, like every time she was happy. Now, as she smiled up at Damon you could see the light getting caught in her tongue-piercing. Hermione remembered very well how some people had reacted when they had seen her at first. Both her ears pierced some times (Her right ear was three her left one four times pierced), a tongue-piercing and another piercing in her navel. And to top all of this was History also a metamorphic. To bad she wasn't able to control it yet.

'At least Damon knows exactly how she feels' Hermione thought with a smile when she sat down next to Draco in the church, Felicitas sitting on her lap.

"Mommy, will Lee and her father come over again this Christmas?" Felicitas whispered to her mother.

"Yes. Her father promised to come for tomorrow evening." Her mother replied.

"Has Alex already answered?" Draco whispered to his wife just before the music started to play. Hermione barely nodded and mouthed 'too' which meant that Alexander Everdeen would also be coming the next evening together with his wife and their five years old son.

"And I really have to put up with Weasley on Christmas again?" Draco inquired when the pastor started the service. Hermione narrowed her eyes playfully at him and hit him on his leg.

"Just like the past few years! You'll survive it!" Draco raised his eyebrows at her and opened the songbook like everyone else.

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him

O come let us adore Him

Come and behold Him

"I can already see it, one day he will be part of the family!" Draco joked in a whisper. Hermione glared at him when a thought hit her.

"Why not? I always thought that Nat and Aishleen would be a cute couple…" She smirked at her husband.

Draco raised his eyebrows and was about to open his mouth again when they sang the next song.

From heaven above to earth I come,
To bear good news to every home,
Glad tidings of great joy I bring,
Whereof I now will gladly sing.

To you this night is born a Child
Of Mary, chosen mother mild;
This little Child, of lowly birth,
Shall be the joy of all the earth.

Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto us His Son hath given!
While angels sing with pious mirth,
A glad New Year to all the earth.

"You know that Christmas is the time of love and peace, right?" Draco teased his wife.

"Exactly, and that's why you will be very nice tomorrow evening!" Draco sighed and obeyed to his destiny.

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavely hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Saviour, is born!
Christ the Saviour, is born!

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.

As soon as they sat in the carriages to return home, Nathaniel and Felicitas were fast asleep, dreaming about the Christmas tree, Santa Claus and their presents.

Outside it was still snowing, the earth was by now covered in a white blanket.

Okay, I have to go now, I have to change, have to set the table for dinner and then we're going to have the giving of Christmas presents (I'm so glad to live in Germany when it comes to these kind of things :D) and go to church tonight, so as you see, I have a lot to do tonight. So…

Merry Christmas to all of you!
