Three years later
I walked along the shore thinking about how my life had changed so much these past couple of years. Draco and I got through our last year without too much more drama, though we did have our fights we always made up in the end. We married midway through the year and surprisingly most of Hogwarts came together as one. Amazing huh?
"Maddie your father here." Pansy said as she came and handed me my flowers.
"Okay." I said shakily.
"Yeah, what if he decides he doesn't want to go through with it?" I rambled
"Maddie, that would never happen and you know it. Besides Draco's worried you'll be the one doing that." I frowned and looked down at Pansy who was fiddling with my dress.
"Why?" I asked.
"He thinks you'll change your mind about accepting the truth about being a pureblood. He thinks you might regret not telling Potter and the rest of them." I nodded and turned my head to look out the window.
Three hours later I was standing at the entrance of the church. Instead of having butterflies in my stomach I had hornets instead. They were going crazy.
I watched nervously as the guards were about to open the door but I frowned when my father stopped them.
"Daddy what's wrong?" I asked. Many thoughts were running through my head and I hoped that none of them were real.
"You sure you're ready for this?" My father asked me. I smiled a small smile before nodding not trusting my voice to speak.
I remember walking down the isle and getting passed over to Draco.
"I didn't think you were going to show." He said quietly as the minister started talking.
"I didn't think you would have either." I looked at him from the corner of my eye. I saw him smile as he did the same.
The rest of the wedding pasted like a blur really. I remember hearing congratulations a lot through out the night, but that was to be expected.
It seemed that not everything turned out the way it was planned. The war came in our last year of school. Draco and the rest of the boys went to fight but they made us stay at Hogwarts where it was safe from too much harm.
I remember the last day of the battle too well. Draco and the boys came back in one piece and then they told me the news. My father had died. I remember not talking or eating for a few weeks but the news of my pregnancy and Draco's threats brought me back to my senses.
"DAMN IT MADISON!" I flinched and shrunk backwards into the wall. Draco barely used my full name and when he did it was scary because I knew he was mad at me.
"What do I have to do to get you to eat? Maddie I'm worried. It's no good for you or our baby. If I have to I'll force it into you. Now think really hard, do you want me to have to do that?" I shook my head and started crying.
I waited in the corner and watched him come over to me. He picked me up and tucked me back into bed. He covered me up before lying down next to me. Pushing back the hair that was on my forehead and wiping away my tears.
"I just want you and the baby safe. I know you're upset about your father, but you can't blame yourself for this. Promise you'll start eating again?"
"Good. Now go to sleep, I'll be here when you wake up."
We still keep in touch with everyone that was in our year in our house. Mostly just the close ones, Blaise and Pansy mainly. Pansy's a healer at St Mungo's and Blaise works for the Ministry. We have dinner over at there house every Saturday night.
It's been a long time since I had seen those that I once thought of as friends but being away from them made me see them for who they really were and to be honest I can't believe I hung around them for years.
I sighed and tucked a piece of hair that was flying around my face behind my ear. I stopped and looked behind me. There was Draco and our little girl holding hands and playing in the surf. I smiled during the pregnancy Draco wouldn't let me out of his sight. For a while I felt trapped but after the hormones calmed down a bit I started to realize that he only wanted me safe. After a while though he did calm down and stopped being so protective, then after Hannah was born he fired up again.
"Draco if you two stay in there any longer you're both going to get sick." I said as I walked over to them.
"I guess we better get now Hannah. We don't want to make mummy mad now do we?" I watched Draco talk to the 1-year-old in a baby voice. It was times like these that I knew I would never regret being told the truth.
"So Maddie, what do think?" I was snapped out of my thoughts by Draco voice.
"Huh?" I heard Hannah squealing as her Draco spun her around.
"I said we should go get some ice-cream." He said as he put Hannah on his shoulders.
"Hmmm, I don't know has someone been a good girl?" I asked as I tickled her from behind.
"Yea mummy, yea." I smiled and laughed as she yelled that she had been.
"Well then I guess we could."
"YAY!" I laughed as I watched Draco start running towards the shops. I looked towards the ocean and smiled. Yeah things had been good these past few years. I looked up once at the sky thinking about how much I missed having my father around. He would have made a good grandfather. As laughable as that sounds it's the truth.
I love you daddy, I wish you still here.
I sighed before running after Draco and my daughter who were yelling at me to hurry up.
I'm so sorry to those of you who wanted this to be longer but I think its run its course and I'm stuck for ideas now. So this is the end i started this back in 2006 and its now 2011. Thank you to those who have stuck with this story until the very end and thanks to all the reviews.
Bye for now,
Princess of Darkness17
I sighed and swung my arms back and forth. Things had definitely changed since then.
