Chapter 6
The End

Harry cried as the seconds passed, unaware of the presence behind him.

"Hello Harry."

He looked up quickly and saw a woman in white. "Who…who are you?"

"I'm your mother Harry."

"But you can't be! My mother's dead."

Lily just smiled, amusement in her eyes. "I am dead. Well sort of. I am only here until my mission is completed. And it has been."

"And all that means?"

"Never mind. Right now, the important thing is to revive Draco. Incase you haven't noticed dear, the rose has lost its last petal."

Harry turned around, and sure enough, the rose was dead, all the petals gone.

"Now, how do I do this again?"

She waved her hands in the air several times before something actually happened. Suddenly, beams of lights appeared, a bright burning light that seemed to touch everything before they all combined into one and struck Draco, lifting him into the air.

His cloak curled around him, like a rose about to bloom, the light starting to shoot out of his fingers and toes which turned back into human ones. It finally ended when Draco's head tilted back, his silver blonde hair giving him a halo.

He drifted back onto the ground, then Draco stood up. He gazed in wonder at his once again human body. Then his gaze turned to Harry, Draoc walked toward him then clasped his hands in his.

"Harry…it's me."

One wonders how Harry wouldn't know this, seeing as how he did transform in front of him, but let's just write it off as Harry being denser than usual.

He fingered a silvery strand and then ran a hand over Draco's cheek. Then Harry stared into those beautiful eyes that had captivated him so long ago. He grinned widely.

"It is you!"

Then he ran right into his arms and kissed him soundly.

Around them, the whole castle changed, fireworks erupting, and the darkness replaced by light. Everyone changed back to their original forms, Hermione, Ron, and Mrs. Weasley all celebrating from their viewpoint.

"I hate to interrupt the little love fest boys, but I need to talk to you two first."

Harry blushed, hiding his face in Draco's chest while Draco laughed then went slack jawed at seeing Lily standing there.

"You're…you're the Enchantress."

She smiled dryly. "Correct. I can see my work here is done. You better take good care of my son Draco. Or I'll turn you into a beast permanently." She waved at them, disappearing in a flash, and suddenly they were all in the ballroom.

Harry and Draco were dancing, oblivious to everything but each other.

On the sidelines, Mrs, Weasley, Ginny, Ron, and Hermione were watching.

The latter two were having a very nervous conversation at the moment.



Then they said at the same time, "Why did you kiss me?"

"I…uh…Because you saved me. Why did you kiss me?"

Hermone smirked. "Because I felt like it. You didn't have to kiss me."

"You didn't have to kiss me back."

More tense silence followed. Then…

"So…does this mean we're dating?"

Hermione grinned brightly. "I guess it does."

They leaned in to kiss when Fleur walked by at that moment. Ron's eyes followed her walk across the room. Unfortunately, Hermione noticed the movement.

"Ronald Weasley!"

Hermione stomped off angrily.

"Wait! Hermione! Come back!" Then he ran after her.

"Mum?" Ginny asked.

"Yes dear?" Mrs. Weasley said looking down at her.

"Does this mean they're going to live happily ever after?"

She smiled down at her.

"Yes Ginny. Yes, I think it does.
