Figuring It Out

Disclaimer: I own Emily Abigail Black.

Lady Geuna: Yes, yes I did do that on purpose :-D

Im no muggle: You'll have to wait and see…

Alligator355: I know I am :-P Sorry I didn't make your morning!

LM: He he, I've never had a reviewer call me a little shite before, not to mention never being called a muggle brat before. Does the 'LM' stand for Lucius Malfoy, by any chance?

Celi: He he, yup, evil, Moi.

Sarahamanda: Thanks for reviewing!

ThouandI: I don't mind threats, some of them are quite funny :-D You're right though, a caesarean section would probably have been more plausible for a man to give birth but its been and gone now, so it doesn't matter too much.

Inumoon3: Yes it would suck if it was someone else all together, which is why it isn't. You know, I think this story is on my Group…

Marauder-Magick33: Thank you!

Sasami Tombo: Funny, I've always been able to see him as a dad, with a little daughter that he can spoil rotten…

Brunette89: Yes, evil! I know :-D

Really-big-HP-freak: I'm sorry! But shaking me isn't going to help matters… ;-D

Thank you to everyone that reviewed and eh…threatened, its nice to know a story is so wanted!

Chapter 10: And the Daddy is…?

"How is she?" Asked Remus two days after Sirius gave birth.

Sirius smiled as he cradled his daughter in his arms, he was sitting in an armchair in his common room, "She's fine, well, she's not any trouble yet."

Remus smiled back at his friend, "So, do you know yet? The other three sent me to ask as you apparently told them all to bugger off."

Sirius sighed, "Yes, I do know. But Madame Pomfrey doesn't want me to jump to conclusions in case I'm wrong, that's why she took a swab from each of you."

Remus nodded and sat down, "Fair enough…Hang on, if you haven't seen the DNA results yet, how can you be so sure of who it is?"

"Her eyes." Replied Sirius quietly. "Her eyes are the dead give away, but every time you lot have turned up, she's been asleep. They're not blue like a normal new born baby's eyes should be."

"Have you named her yet?" Questioned Remus curiously. He knew Sirius was struggling to come up with a good name for his daughter.

"Yeah, I've come to a final decision and it's not a star." Replied Sirius, he shifted slightly. "Can you pass me her bottle?"

Remus picked up the bottle of milk off the coffee table and handed it to Sirius, "And?"

"Thanks." Sirius took the bottle and shifted the baby as she woke up so he could feed her with the warm milk. "Emily. Emily Abigail Black."

Remus raised his eyebrows, "Abigail?"

Sirius smiled and nodded, "I always liked your sister… You don't mind do you?"

Remus shook his head smiling, "No, I think its sweet."

………

It was late the next morning; there were only two days until school ended for the year now. Sirius, Remus, James, Severus and Lucius were all in the Infirmary waiting for the DNA test results to be given out. Madame Pomfrey had called the five of them in so they could all find out who Emily's other father was.

"Why is she always asleep when we're near her?" Asked James as he watched the little bundle in Sirius' arms sleep soundly.

Sirius smirked, "Well, she's lazy…that's a Malfoy trait." He winked at the scowling Lucius. But it was true, the Malfoys paid people to do things for them and they had a whole legion of House-Elves. "But then she's also quite nocturnal…"

Madame Pomfrey reappeared from her office before anything else was said, she had four folded bits of parchment in her hand. "Here are the results." The sheets of parchment were named so she handed each one to its rightful owner. "I'll leave you boys to talk." She turned and went back into her office.

Sirius settled himself back on the bed he was sitting on with Emily; "Do you want me to leave?" Right at this point, he really didn't want to know what the DNA results said as he was pretty set on who he thought the father was and he did not want that little fantasy ruined if the DNA told him otherwise.

"No, you should stay." Replied Lucius as he started to unfold his parchment.

"Wait." Said James suddenly. Lucius stopped and raised his eyebrows at the messy haired Gryffindor. "Maybe we should open them at the same time…"

Remus and Lucius nodded in agreement, Severus, on the other hand, had already gone ahead and unfolded his parchment, which he was now staring blankly at.

"Okay, scrap that and let's get this over with." Said James as he unfolded his parchment. Remus and Lucius followed suit quickly.

Why aren't they saying anything? Thought Sirius worriedly. He gazed between the four other boys in the room who were staring silently at the parchment in their hands. Please don't say I got it wrong and none of them is the father…oh god… "Guys?" He cuddled Emily close, they still weren't saying anything and now he felt like crying.

Finally, the other four looked back at him, all of them looked a little shocked.

Oh god…she's a hybrid of all five of us isn't she? Thought Sirius, his blue eyes wide as he gazed back at them.

"It's not me." Said James at last.

Sirius couldn't help but notice that his best friend looked a little disappointed about this. "Oh…okay…"

Lucius looked to Sirius and shook his head, a frown on his aristocratic face. "Not me either."

Sirius nodded, he turned his attention to Remus and Severus who were yet to say anything. Lucius and James followed his eye line.

Remus only answered by folding up the paper and turning his head to look at Severus.

"I guess that would be me then…" Said Severus quietly as he looked back at Sirius.

………

"You don't have to do anything you don't want to do, you know?"

Severus looked back to Sirius from his seat on the couch in Sirius' common room, "…I'm in love with you, Sirius, I'm not leaving."

Sirius gave a small smile, "Really?"

Severus moved so he was right next to Sirius, "Really." He put a hand up to the side of Sirius' face. "I want you to come home with me for the summer, with Emily."

Sirius frowned, "Ar-are you sure? I mean, would your parents mind?"

Severus shook his head, "I owled my mum after we got the results, it was actually her idea…" He shrugged slightly. "And my father doesn't live with us anymore so, we don't have to worry about what he thinks."

Sirius smiled, "Then I'd love to."

"I was hoping you'd say that." Said Severus; he leaned in and kissed Sirius gently on the lips.
