A/N: And here's the chapter! Warning: fluff at the wedding part!

I'll tell you a secret: I think I know what my next story is going to be about. I'm not telling all the details right now, but it will be a little darker than my other stories. My idea involves Death-Eaters and kidnapping... very angsty. I can't promise anything at the moment because I may still change my mind, but if I got you curious... here's a reason to "stay tuned" and wait for the next story. :-)

Moony's Angel: LOL!!! You're sweet! Thanks!

Rinuaula (Fred): Thank you!

Icorrectppl: LOL I like your nickname... Anyway, you're right about the age, but if we really get into details... In the end of Book 4, when Hermione and Harry were 15 or almost 15, J. K. Rowling said that Snape is 35 or 36. This means Sirius was also 35/36, because they were in the same year at Hogwarts. So 3 years later, Sirius is 38-39. I know it's not 40 so I said "ALMOST forty". About the 60-70 thing, you're right, and it was on purpose, because when people get really angry like Hermione's father did, they tend to exaggerate. Thanks for the correction, anyway. :-)

O inquisitive one: Well, originally it was PG-13, but after chapter 2 I changed it because of the part where Tonks undresses Remus. You can call it R just in case if you want. There's a note about this in chapter 2. About your question whether Hermione is a virgin or not, well, I don't think she is. She and Ron were together for two years, I guess she did sleep with him. But the end of chapter 9 is her first time with Sirius. And yes, Sirius is free now, I guess I should've mentioned it in the Background I gave in chapter 1. And he doesn't always stay in the house... in chapter 9 they go for walks, haven't you noticed? In his wedding he will definitely get out of his house... just wait and see. Thanks for your comments!


"I TOLD you so," Tonks said triumphantly. "I told you so – didn't I? Didn't I?!"

"Yes, you did," Remus replied, rolling his eyes. "You told me they were likely to get married soon. You told me so. And you were right. Blah, blah, blah."

"Don't make fun of me!" Tonks punched him playfully on the shoulder. "But you know I was right. You said it would probably take them at least a year, and I said that just because YOU'RE so slow..."

"Excuse me?" Remus cut her off.

"Oh." Tonks was taken aback. "Guess I didn't say it after all."

"What do you mean, I'm slow?!" Remus demanded.

"Well... we've been together for over a year now, and... you didn't really ask me anything," Tonks answered quietly, looking unusually embarrassed.

"Ask you?" Remus raised his eyebrows.

"Yeah, well, you know. You could have asked me to move in with you, at the very least, but... but you didn't, and those two have been together for like a month, and they're already about to get married."

Remus gazed at her.

"I'm not forcing you to do anything you don't want to," Tonks said quickly, "but... well... you asked." She looked even more embarrassed. "Don't panic or anything," she added when she noticed he still wasn't going to answer, "If it's too soon for you, there is absolutely no rush. Okay?"

Instead of replying, Remus suddenly gripped her face and kissed her long and hard on the lips. When he pulled back, Tonks gazed at him, stunned. "What the hell was that?"

"You were right," Remus replied hoarsely, "I'm slow, but that's not because I didn't want to do these stuff, I was simply afraid you would refuse. You know I love you."

They had rarely expressed their feelings for each other in words, and therefore, Tonks was astonished to hear him say that. She smiled at him: "I love you too."

"You know," said Remus, as if after thinking, "when you propose to someone, you have to use their first name. You can't say, 'Green, will you marry me?', or 'Wilson, will you marry me?', it sounds ridiculous."

"Do you think it would sound ridiculous in our case?" Tonks asked quietly.

"We could try, couldn't we?" Remus smiled. He then got down on one knee.

"Oh my God," Tonks said softly, as her eyes filled with tears (another unusual event).

"Tonks," said Remus, "I should have done this a long time ago, because I knew right from the start what I wanted, but I was too afraid of rejection. I hope you won't punish me because of that, because I've realized that the only thing that matters is how much I love you. Tonks, will you marry me?"

Tonks grinned behind the tears. "Yes, I will," she said, got down to the floor as well and kissed him.


Sirius and Hermione's wedding date was set to August the 28th, three days before the new school year at Hogwarts was to start. Ginny was supposed to go there for her seventh year. Harry, Ron and Hermione were planning to start their Auror Training around the middle of September, after Hermione and Sirius got back from their honeymoon.

"Remus and Tonks are engaged!" Mrs. Weasley announced in tears of happiness on August the 27th, the day before the wedding. "We weill have another wedding soon! Tonks has just told me. Can you believe it?"

"That's great!" Hermione exclaimed.

"But when?" Ginny asked, disappointed. "It's not fair! I'll probably be stuck in Hogwarts on their wedding day. Do you think they'll let me off one day?"

"They're not going to get married until Christmas," Mrs. Weasley answered. "They decided they want a big, beautiful wedding, and it takes time to plan."

Ginny looked relieved.

"Hermione, dear," Mrs. Weasley said to Hermione, "have you written your vow yet?"

"Oh my God! I completely forgot about it!" Hermione cried, clapping her hand on her mouth. "I've got to write it down at once!" She ran upstairs. Next to her room, she met Sirius.

"Where are you running?" he asked.

"I've got to write my vow," she answered and opened her door.

"You haven't written it yet?!" he snorted.

Hermione frowned. "Why, have you written yours already?"

"Of course!" Sirius replied. "At least three weeks ago. Geez, Hermione, I thought you were more responsible," he said, kissing her on the cheek and going downstairs. Hermione rolled her eyes and entered her room to write her vow.

Two minutes later, Sirius found Remus in the kitchen and dragged him up to his bedroom. "Listen – you've got to help me," he whispered feverishly. "I told Hermione I've already written my vow when in fact, I haven't even thought of it yet."

"You haven't written your vow yet?!!" Remus called out loud.

"Shh!!!" Sirius whispered frantically. "She might hear you! Look, I completely forgot about it up till now. You've GOT to help me!"

"All right, all right. Relax. I'll help you," Remus replied and took out a roll of parchment and a quill.

"Thank you so much," Sirius said and took the parchment and the quill. He looked up at Remus. "Well?"

"Well what?"

"Go ahead, I'm writing!"

Remus gazed at him. "I'm not going to dictate your vow to you!" he shouted and punched Sirius. "I said I was going to help you, and by helping I meant assisting you in thinking what to write. I didn't mean I'll write it instead of you!"

"Fine," Sirius groaned and sat down. "Okay. Let me think. Hmm... what should I say? What... should... I... say?"

"God, you're hopeless," Remus sighed. "All right, I've got it. Write it down: 'Hermione, when I look at you, I see everything I had ever been looking for, my whole life'."

Sirius wrote that. "Okay, and?"

"Well, you should think of something too!"

Sirius gazed at the window. "Hmm... How about: 'I've been waiting my whole life for somebody like you, and now that I've found you, I could never let go'?"

"It sounds like she's going to be in jail after marrying you," Remus said.

"Okay, how about: 'Most people think they could never find the perfect partner that they have on their mind, but I did find my perfect partner, and she's standing right in front of me. I love everything about you'."

"That's good, just drop the 'I love everything about you' part, it's too... icky."

"Hermione's vow is going to be SO much better than mine," Sirius groaned.

"Hermione doesn't even have a vow yet!"

"I know!"


The wedding was to take place at the local church, and it was a beautiful one. They all left the house two hours before the beginning, because Hermione was incredibly tense.

"Calm down!" Ginny ordered as they all arrived, and Hermione, Mrs. Weasley, Tonks and Ginny went to the dressing room to help Hermione get ready. "You have to calm down, Hermione, there's still enough time. And your hair looks great!"

"No it doesn't, I know it doesn't, I knew my hair would go all bushy today. I knew it!" Hermione wailed, looking miserably at her reflection in the mirror.

"Hermione, your hair stopped being bushy about two years ago, so cut it out! Go on, get into your dress."

"Fine." Hermione frowned and wore the dress.

"You look lovely, sweetheart," Mrs. Weasley said. "But you're way too tense. Just calm down, okay? It's your wedding day, you have to be calm."

"Let's get your make up done," Tonks said, drew out some boxes and started to put make up on her.


Sirius was way too tense as well. Remus tried to calm him down, but it really wasn't working.

"Oh, get a grip of yourself," Remus snapped the tenth time Sirius got up to look out the window and see if guests were coming. "Everything is going to be all right. You're about to marry the woman of your dreams, you have nothing to worry about!"

"I can't calm down," Sirius replied angrily. "We'll see what you will do on YOUR wedding day, eh? Then don't expect me, as your best man, to support you more than you're supporting me now!"

There was a knock on the door and Harry came in.

"Hi guys," Harry said. "How are you, Sirius?"

"I'm all right, I guess," Sirius answered. "I'm just so nervous about the wedding, but I'll be all right."

"Listen, Sirius," Harry said, walking over to him, "I just wanted to say that... if it was bothering you or anything... I'm really okay with you and Hermione. I really am. And I'm really happy for you two."

"Thank you, Harry," Sirius said, grinning and hugging Harry with one arm around his shoulders.


The pianist started to play the Wedding March. That made Sirius even more tense than he had already been. He gave Remus, who was standing next to him, a nervous look.

"Calm down! Here they come!" Remus whispered.

Luna Lovegood, Parvati Patil and Lavender Brown, the bridesmaids, came in with their long, bright-yellow dresses, carrying yellow roses in their hands.

"I'm even more tense now," Sirius whispered.

"Shut up!" was the answer.

Next came in Ginny, the maid of honor, who looked lovely in her satin lavender dress. She was carrying red roses to match her hair, which was as flaming as ever. She walked down the aisle and stood next to the bridesmaids.

And then the Wedding March changed, and all the guests rose up from their seats – the bride and her father had entered.

Sirius's eyes widened as he looked at Hermione. She was indeed the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. She was wearing a long, sleeveless, pearly-white dress, which was glowing in the evening light and appeared almost too beautiful to look at. She had white roses and her long, curly hair fell on her shoulders in soft waves. The veil was hiding her face, but Sirius could look through it and tell she was smiling. As she walked down the aisle, her hand in her father's hand, everyone in the crowd moaned in awe.

Hermione's father kissed her before going back to his seat next to his wife. Hermione was now standing in front of Sirius, smiling excitedly.

"Dearly beloved," said the Minister, "we are gathered to celebrate here today the joyous union of Sirius and Hermione. May the happiness we share with them today be with them always. And now, we shall proceed to the vows. Hermione?"

Ginny handed Hermione her vow. Hermione opened it and read loudly and clearly, looking at Sirius in the eye:

"Sirius, I've always thought my husband would at least be a prince, if not the King of Britain. But after meeting you, I realized the title does not matter at all. The only thing that matters now is that for me, you are the prince. You are my prince. I love you more than words can say, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you."

Sirius smiled at her as Hermione handed the vow back to Ginny.

"Sirius?" said the Minister.

Remus handed Sirius his vow. Sirius opened it and read:

"Hermione, before you and I got together I'd thought I could never be happy again. But you made me realize that old saying: 'Don't ever say never'. You are the most amazing woman I have ever met, and you make me happier than I had ever been before in my life. I want you to know that before meeting you I didn't believe in soul mates. However, I have met my own soul mate who is standing right in front of me now."

Hermione smiled through the tears that threatened to flood her eyes.

The Minister turned to Sirius again. "Do you, Sirius Black, take this woman as your lawfully wedded wife, in sickness and in health, until death parts you?"

"I do," said Sirius clearly, and Remus noticed his voice was not even trembling.

The Minister turned to Hermione. "Do you, Hermione Granger, take this man as your lawfully wedded husband, in sickness and in health, until death parts you?"

"I do," Hermione replied and smiled at Sirius.

The Minister handed them the rings. Sirius and Hermione placed them on each other's fingers.

"Sirius and Hermione have made their declarations," the Minister said, grinning, "and it gives me great pleasure to pronounce them husband and wife. You may kiss the bride," he told Sirius, and Sirius moved forward, cupped Hermione's face and kissed her. She embraced him as they continues kissing, and the crowd broke into applause.

Even Mrs. Weasley, who had been to many wedding in her life and was very sensitive, said that she had never seen a couple whose love was so evident through their kiss at the wedding. As Sirius and Hermione finally pulled away, they stayed close to each other for another moment. "I love you so much," Sirius whispered, carresing her cheek.

"I love you too," Hermione replied and kissed his lips again. Then she took his hand in hers and they both started walking back down the aisle, in the opposite direction this time, and everyone watched them as they opened the doors and went out together, the twilight sun beaming upon them.
