I still don't own anything.
"Wait. One. Second. You…and Draco? Draco Malfoy?" Harry whispered and glanced worried towards Ginny's brothers, he knew how much they all hated Malfoy and everything in his way. Luckily, they were all out except the twins and Bill.
"Yes me… and The Draco Malfoy." Ginny answered and sighed. "Can you imagine my face when he announced his love? It was unreal, and yet it was wonderful. Please Harry don't freak out! You got to believe me when I say, that Draco isn't who you think he is. You know, I was so surprised when I realised who I saw in him."
"No Harry, not Snape, but you. Believe it or not but he's just like you."
Ginny saw that Harry was in real doubt, and she didn't blame him for it. It took long even for her, although she loved Draco, to really trust him and believe that the way he was acting was how he really was. But yet she was relieved, Harry seemed to accept it.
"So," Harry said, his fingers playing with her hair, just as Draco's always did. "How long were you two dating?"
"Until a week ago." Ginny answered and smiled as Harry's eyes enlarged. "Yes, for almost 2,5 years, it's a long time. We managed to keep our relationship secret, knowing that if it came out, both of us would be living in a hell. We had our secret spots were we met, mostly during the nights. And we owled each other several times per day. When you all graduated, we kept in touched in the same way, the only difference was that I was the only one sneaking out and that he waited for me."
"So, what happened," Harry asked looking very concerned. "why did you break up?"
"I… We had a fight. I told him something… Oh Harry, I was so happy and I thought he would be as glad as I was. But he… went crazy. He stormed away an hour later after blaming everything on me, saying that… that he never wanted to, to see me again."
Ginny burst out to tears and threw herself into Harry's arms. Harry just held her tight and kept on telling her everything was going to be alright, he knew this was the only thing he could do to help her. None of them really noticed how everything went quiet and how eyes were fixed on them, the only one who didn't really seemed to notice them was Hermione, she just nodded and went out in the kitchen, knowing her fiancé would be able to comfort Ginny. Mrs Weasley, though, didn't seem to agree. "Ginny honey," She yelled and ran to them, trying to grab her daughter in her arms. "What's wrong dear? Please, tell Mum!"
"Mother," Ginny whispered, she had managed to stop crying and was, with a little help from Harry, wiping her wet eyes. "I, it's nothing, I'm fine now."
Her mother didn't looked very convinced, but she had no time to protest, because in the very same moment the outer door flung open and Charlie came in, carrying a body in his arms. Behind him came Percy holding a furious Ron in his arms. A chaos came up all until Hermione returned into the living room; Her eyes widened as she saw the limp body on the sofa, and both Harry who held Ginny and stopped her from try to see what was going on, and Ginny saw the anger grew in Hermiones eyes.
"RON WEASLEY!" She yelled and pointed at the red faced young man who was still being held by Percy. "YOU…..What have you DONE?"
"And I'm going to marry her…" Harry mumbled to Ginny.
"Can you please take the children out of here, Fleur and Alexia?" Hermione said as she kneeled by the sofa. "Not good, not at all…" she said to herself and sighed. "Charlie, can you please tell me what happened?"
"We had just chopped the wood and were about to bring it in… When he suddenly was there. Ron went crazy, he sent some spells I've never even heard before on him…"
"Didn't he defend himself?"
"I…no, actually, he didn't."
"LET ME GO!" Ron hissed, still trying to get loose. "Let me go and I'll kill him! That filthy BASTARD, he's a shame of the whole wizard world!"
It wasn't until then Ginny managed to figure it all out. She twisted herself out of Harrys arms and ran to the sofa were the sight she'd dreaded made her sink to the floor.
"No," She whispered and shook her head. "Ron…what have you done you…you. I hate you!" She crept to the sofa were she put her hands on Draco's chest, the tears rolling down her cheeks. "Hermione, what has he done with him?"
"I'm not really sure, I've never seen this before. I think we should take him to…" Hermione became quiet and looked down on Draco who was letting out a deep moan. He took a deep breath and the life seemed to come back to him. The grey eyes opened, filled with life as always, and fixed Ginny. He gave her a smirk. "You're still not convinced about that heart thing Weasley?"
"Malfoy, you git! What are you doing here?" Ginny exclaimed.
"Hey, who's thrown a bucket of water over you? You're all wet." He laughed and sat up in the sofa inspecting the room with his eyes. "Well, it's not like Malfoy manor, but, I guess if you like to have no privacy at all and enjoy some dust in the corners, it's lovely. So, will you get me a eggnog or something. I'm all dried out."
Ginny looked at Draco, he was making himself at home looking as convinced only a Malfoy could. She turned her gaze to her family and trembled, they were all blood red in there faces, the anger was boiling in the air and she knew that if Harry and Hermione hadn't been there, they'd all exploded a long time ago. It was then she noticed that one of her brothers was missing. In the same moment she felt a hand grab her arm and pull her up on her feet. She turned around and find herself facing her youngest brother.
"Ginny, what is This?" He hissed and gave Draco a glare.
"This, dear brother." Ginny answered calmly looking straight into his eyes. "Is Draco Malfoy, your dearest enemy I reckon."
"I know who he is! What I want you to tell me is why he's here!"
"Well, if you'll let me go, maybe I can find out."
Ron loosened his grip reluctantly and let Ginny turn around and kneeled in front of Draco. "So," she said. "what do you want Malfoy?"
"Ouch, that hurt, Weasley."
"I'm waiting…" she crossed her arms and gave Draco the look she knew he couldn't stand. And just as she'd thought, it gave results; He sighed and looked deep into her eyes with a look she'd never seen before; he looked so truthful.
"Ginny," he said softly. "I'm so sorry, please forgive …"
"Excuse me? You're bursting in here, insulting my home and my family, and you want me to forgive you?"
"Well, actually, I had planned to take the front door. I was even going to knock, really. But your dear brothers stopped me as you might know." He turned to Ron. "Did you really think your silly spells would do me any harm Weasel? Wouldn't you know a Malfoy makes sure he's protected against wizards like you?"
"Wait a minute." Ginny whispered. "The parchment!"
"Yes, it has protected my family for ages. You can't reckon what I went trough to steel it for you." He gave the surprised Ginny a smirk. "Where was I? Oh right; I'm sorry. Gin, I don't know what happened, why I freaked out. But I know, that I haven't slept one second since…well you know."
"Remind me?" Ginny said with a teasing tone in her voice. She took his hand and squeezed it tight. Draco didn't seem to notice that she was teasing him. "…Since I said I never wanted to see you again…I'm so, so sorry, that's all I can say. If you want me to find more words I'll have to make them up myself…"
"Draco, hush, I understand; you're sorry. I could forgive you, but not if you still want me to…"
"No, I don't, no not at all! I…I got scared Ginny, really scared. I didn't think I was ready, but this week I realized that I am. I told my parents this morning and they threw me out."
Ginny was taken aback. He'd told his parents? She nodded and rose to face her family. "You heard him, he's hear to tell me he's sorry and asking me to forgive him." She said and looked them all in their eyes.
"Ginevra Molly Weasley!" Her mother bellowed and approached her daughter. "What does this mean young girl?"
"I'm sorry? Well, it means you…"
"Don't try to be funny Miss! Spit it out, we're all ears."
Ginny glanced from one of her family member to another and swallowed, then she turned to Harry who nodded definite. She opened her mouth slowly, and in the same second she felt a familiar hand grab hers. The confidence flowed into her and she knew just what to say. "I love him Mother." She whispered watching her family almost faint. Mrs Weasley opened her mouth. "No Mum, I know what you're about to say, but I don't want to hear it. I will not discuss this, not with anyone of you." She sighed. "I guess I'm not wanted here anymore. Come Draco, lets leave."
"I can't believe you just did that!" Draco said and gave her a hug as they trudged through the deep snow on their way from the house. "I can't bloody believe it."
"I love you more than anything else, and right know I believe us are more important than the Weasleys and the Malfoys."
"You're completely right. Hey pumpkin, I've got a surprise for you."
"Yes, a Christmas present. Close your eyes and apparate yourself with me."
Ginny did as he said and very soon she stood indoors and felt the warmth spread around her. She opened her eyes and found herself in a hall. Draco smiled and took her hand and lead her out in a big living room where a table was set for two.
"Draco, where are we?" Ginny asked stunned. "I… I don't understand?"
"This, is Enchanted Alley number 3." Draco answered and showed her to the table which was weighed down with Christmas food. "You know I'm not a good cook so I hope this, from La Fée, will do." He looked at the stunned Ginny with a shy grin, waiting for her reaction.
"I…wha…who…encha…?" Ginny stuttered, everyone of her thoughts coming out at the same time. She closed her eyes and composed herself. "Enchanted Alley? Draco what are we doing at London's finest street? And this food, La fée? Are you crazy? It must have cost a fortune."
"Well," Draco said and kneeled down opposite to Ginny. "To answer your first question; here, read it." He gave her a parchment.
Dear Mr Malfoy,
I do hereby announce that the property at Enchanted Alley number 3 has, as you wished, being ascribed to the names you asked for and is thereby owned by
Mr. Draco Lucius Malfoy
Miss Ginevra Molly Weasley
I hope you will enjoy your new home.
Mr. Jeremiah Haven
"I bought it three months ago." Draco said as Ginny looked up with an astonished look. "I can change it if you want to, but Gin, it would be an honour if you wanted to live here, with me."
"Oh, Draco." Ginny cupped his face in her hands. "How could I deny?" She leaned forwards and kissed him slightly. "and what about the food?" She continued.
"You are indeed a Weasley." Draco said disappointed. "I know the owner, he gave me a fair price." he lied and sat down on his chair next to Ginny. "Lets eat now."
It didn't took long before every single crumb was eaten, so they cuddled up in each armchair in front of the warming fireplace and sat there all quiet, just watching each other. If someone had seen them there he would probably thought they were two statues, right to the moment when a snow white owl came flying in trough one of the windows.
"Hedwig!" Ginny exclaimed and grabbed the parchment from the owl. "Draco, give her something to eat please." She said as she opened the letter.
It has finally quiet down here after a few hours, Ron is still outrageous of course, but the others has calmed down.
Right after you two left Mrs Weasley fainted, nothing serious though, it was just from the stress. I'll put her on some anti stress potion and…Oh, sorry. Harry doesn't think I need to tell you that, and as always he's right.
Anyways, we hope you are alright, both you and Draco. Ron wanted to burn your presents Ginny, but we managed to save them in last second. Just give us an address and we will transfer them there.
Oh, and Ginny? I didn't have to time to ask you, but do you want to be my maid of honour at the wedding? I'd really appreciate that. I think you will get the more detailed invitation sometime next week, and of course Draco is invited too.
Harry and Hermione.
Ginny smiled and gave Draco the letter so that he could read it as she wrote an answer;
Dear Harry and Hermione,
I'm happy to hear that my family are well under the circumstances.
Please tell them that I love them very, very much. But I can't live without Draco, I just can't. You Hermione, know I've never believed in such silly thing as love at first sight and that there is one for everyone, but this time I had to give in. Draco is my other half, that's just the way it is.
Well, enough of that. I'd really like to be your Maid of honour Hermione, it would be an Honour.
Thank you for saving my gifts. And Harry, as you transfer them here, could you please do the same thing with my belongings (Hermione should know what I want with me). You see, Draco has asked me to move in here.
Here comes my new address:
Enchanted Alley Number 3.
My best wishes for the both of you,
"Now it's done," she said as she rolled up the letter and gave it to Hedwig. "They will send my belongings here tomorrow. I can't believe it Draco, I really can't. It's too good to be truth."
"No. what is, is that you forgave me." Draco answered and put his arms around her waist. "Admit it now, you do like that cardigan!"
Ginny looked down and laughed, but stopped quite abrupt when a thought crossed her mind. "Oh Draco," she whispered. "You know what this means? Our baby will grow up without any grandparents…" a tear rolled down her cheek.
"Hey honey, you are your parents only daughter, your brothers only sister and the youngest sibling too. They'll talk to you again. We've got 9 months, right?"
"Something like that, yes."
"You know what?" Draco continued and gave her a smile. "I've got another surprise for you."
He pulled her trough the apartment until they reached a door where he stopped. "Go on," he said, "Open it."
She gave Draco a confused look as she put her hand on the handle and pressed it down. Slowly she opened the door. The sight that met her took her aback, this had surely been a night full of surprises, but this was above her imagination.
"Yes." Draco answered and showed her into the room. "I wanted to show you that I'm really serious, that I'm ready for a family."
He had decorated a room for their baby, the baby she was expecting. Ginny had never seen a more beautiful baby room in her entire life. Not that she'd seen many, but still. The walls were painted in vanilla white and light green that went with the sheets in the petite bed in the middle of the room. By the wall on the opposite of the door he'd placed two bookshelves and filled them with books and toys and just in the corner on her left stood an old wore down rocking chair. Ginny let out a slight squeal.
"If you don't like it I can…" Draco began, but were interrupted by Ginny.
"Like it? Oh no Draco, I love it!" she exclaimed and threw herself into Draco's arms kissing him deeply until they had to separate due to the lack of air. Ginny smiled mischievously and leaned forwards so that her mouth was next to Draco's ear. "Hey Mr Malfoy?" she whispered and ran a hand trough his hair. "What about showing me our bedroom now?"
Oh, it's finished and I will not add any more chapters to it. But if you want to know what will happen to them you maybe should read, first´'I will, I do', and then 'If you could only see'.
