Hermione smiled happily as she watched her daughter. Sharon was now 23 and was getting married. To the son of Harry Potter no less. Harry's oldest son Michael was a year and half younger than Sharon, but they didn't care. Severus had welcomed the boy with open arms when he had asked Severus and Hermione permission to marry their only daughter.
"Mum, help me." Sharon said.
"Sure dear." Hermione replied.
Hermione walked over to her daughter and helped attach the veil. When the twins were five, Hermione and Severus renewed their wedding vows in a beautiful ceremony out near the lake. Sharon and Michael too were getting married in the same spot.
"You ready my little one?" Severus asked as he entered the room.
"Yes. Daddy, you all right?" Sharon asked as she faced him.
Severus was just staring at his daughter. She looked just like her mother did when she was 23. The only difference was Sharon had his black hair. She looked beautiful. Michael was going to be knocked off his feet when he saw her.
"I'm fine honey. You just look so beautiful." Severus answered.
"Thank you daddy." Sharon said as she walked over and hugged him.
Hermione left the room to take her seat. Sharon's older brother Shawn stuck his head in and announced it was time. Sharon placed her arm on her father's and they headed for the lake.
At the altar Michael Severus Potter stood nervously. Harry just gave his soon a reassuring smile as the music began. Michael nearly stopped breathing when he saw Sharon come down the aisle. After handing Sharon over to Michael, Severus took his seat beside his wife of nearly 24 years, Hermione.
"We are here to join these two souls in the state of matrimony. The vows of marriage are vows that are sacred. Sharon and Michael have shown their love and are ready to take the next step and join their souls and hearts as one and become husband and wife." Christian said.
Severus and Hermione smiled at one another. Harry held his wife, a young witch he had met on his travels to America by the name of Kay-Lyn. They married a year after Hermione and Severus. The ceremony was beautiful. Shawn watched happily as his sister kissed her new husband.
"I now present Mr. and Mrs. Michael Severus Potter." Christian announced.
Everyone got to their feet and clapped and cheered as the happy couple walked down the aisle. The reception was held at the cottage. The backyard had been transfigured into an outdoor ball room. As Severus watched Hermione dance with Harry, Sirius walked up.
"How does it feel to have a Potter for a son-in-law?" Sirius asked with a smile.
"Just fine Sirius. After all, the boy is my godson." Severus laughed.
"Yeah. I see Shawn dancing with Remus and Tonks's daughter April." Sirius pointed out.
"I have a feeling those two will hit it off." Severus said with a smile.
"Looks like things have come full circle then. Doesn't it my friend?" Sirius asked.
"It sure does. To tell you the truth, I've never been happier than I have these last 28 years. Ever since Hermione cornered me in the lab and told me she loved me." Severus answered.
"You've done what you were destined to do. You brought peace back to our world and it's a much better place. Now come on, let's rejoin the party." Sirius said as he placed his arms around Severus's shoulder.
Severus laughed as he and Sirius rejoined their friends and celebrated the love and happiness that Sharon and many others had found.
