Blah Flashback

Epilogue: Carpe Diem

Harry stared down at the destruction that he had caused. It was finally over. Voldemort was gone for good. He felt it this time, but for the life of him he just could not move. Any Death Eater that came now could easily kill him off, but he was past caring. A shadow fell over him, but he knew this person held no evil intent.

"It's hard to be mad at you when you look so pitiful."

"He's gone," Harry whispered seeking the comfort it seemed only Draco could offer him. Draco held onto Harry tight.

"You idiot Gryffindor. What possessed you? You scared the fuck out of me."

"I know. I'm sorry," Harry said breathing in Draco's scent. They sat there quietly in each other's arms managing to block out the world and their fate.

"Why haven't the Death Eaters found us yet?"

"My thoughts exactly." And that is when they heard it; the sounds of battle outside. Easily supporting Harry, Draco slowly made way towards the scene. Both were sufficiently shocked when it came into sight. Well, it did answer their questions as to why no Death Eaters were coming for them.

It seemed whatever Death Eaters there had been or there were going to be had been quickly rounded up by the collective Hogwarts students and staff as well as the ministry Aurors. Harry gasped in wonder.

"Wow," was the only word that could escape his lips.

"Well, when I began the scrolls, I didn't imagine this outcome," said Draco with awe tinting every word. Through Harry's awe, his mind managed to catch that small detail.

"You mean it was you!" he said in shock. Draco looked uncomfortable.

"Yes. Well… Luna helped too…err-"

"Luna?" Harry asked suddenly feeling faint.

"And I had to tell them about us… You aren't too angry with me, are you?" Harry looked out at the field, seeing how united Hogwarts was. Draco was sill trying to hurriedly explain his actions.

"Draco?" Harry said, interrupting the blonde.

"Yes," Draco said taking to wringing his hands nervously.

"I think this is the best New Year's I've ever had and not even the fact that all Hogwarts knows can ruin it." Draco breathed a sigh of relief.

"I'm glad." The two were silent for a while.

"Draco?" Harry asked breaking the silence, his face upturned.


"Kiss me."

"Gladly." The kiss was full of emotion. Relief being at the head of it all. It was relief that they had both survived and that they still had each other. When they had finished, the last Death Eater had been tied up and sent off. Any Dementors that there had been had already been dealt with by Harry earlier.

"No, Harry. It is done." Draco whispered.

"Not quite." Harry took Draco's hand and began pulling him up the stairs. Harry walked into the nursery which amazingly was still in pristine condition despite the destruction downstairs. Harry walked towards the middle of the room, where the child was still playing oblivious to the commotion going on and the defeat of his….father? He gently picked up the child.

"Harry?" Draco asked, very much confused.

"Meet Voldemort's heir, Draco. Can we keep him?" he said cooing at the giggling child.

"Harry! What—No!"

"Aww, Draco. He's just a child. He's not evil or anything and do you want to be responsible for ending an innocent life?" Harry said raising his eyebrow. The baby in his arms gurgled.

"Harry, this is Voldemort's child." Harry walked to Draco handing the child over. Draco looked into the baby's hazel eyes.

"Dada," the baby said laying his head on Draco's shoulder.

Draco crumbled.

"I suppose we can take him. But just for a little while," he cautioned. Harry kissed him.

"A little while," Harry repeated with the air of someone who knew far more than the person he was speaking to. Neither of them noticed the child's eyes flashing a deep blood red.

Reviewer Responses:

Dracoroxmysox: I love your name by the way… Have I told you this before? Anyhoo. How goes that scene? Mine was a bit anticlimactic but I like to think that I left a lot to the imagination. - G'luck and I totally have to read your story. I'm glad you enjoyed the one belonging to me and I hope I can entertain you in the near future.

Enchantressofthedark: Not much of a reaction? They rallied forces that have hated each other for centuries and the Aurors! That's a reaction if ever I saw one. Lol. But I know what you mean. Not the jaw on the floor for days kind of stuff or the faintings or the "OMG! HOGWARTS' TWO MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELORS ARE TAKEN…. BY EACH OTHER!" Lol. But I think that it would have been transparent and I love breaking the mold. Thanx for sticking with me thus far. I really appreciated it.

Imperfection Is A Bliss: I hurried! Aren't ya soooo proud of me? Lol. I hope this chapter answered any questions you might have had.

Jujube15: Yeah so true… but that sentence on the bottom about C… I don't know what it was about but I laughed so hard because it had me thinking about Cedric in the movie and his eyebrows were like caterpillars and it just amused me to no end thinking of him looking into a mirror with little tweezers… my thought process is weird. Glad you enjoyed the story and I hope you enjoyed the end as much as the beginning.

Elektra107: Preens I feel all flattered and stuff. Lol. This is the last. But now you have a poll and get to pick what I work on. Yay! Heh, I'm glad you enjoy my writing.


Oh and maybe if you have some time REVIEW
