"If you are not feeling ready yet, we'll wait. All I want is for you to be feeling good, love. We'll have all the time of the world."

Hermione snuggled in her husband's arms, feeling so warm and loved. It had been just a couple of weeks since she'd had their first baby, and she'd her appointment with her healer that morning; she'd said that Hermione and Ron could started living their intimate life together as usual again.

She felt so happy, for their Matthew that was doing so well and her own recovery was fast as well. She only had a little scar that Ron said was her sexy tattoo. Only her beloved Ron would call a scar in her belly something sexy!

Hermione smiled nervously. "I know, love. I want it like you do. The point is that maybe we just need to be…" She felt her face getting flushed.

Ron winked. "A bit less enthusiastic?"

Hermione arched an eyebrow. "And can we be? I think not."

"Have I mentioned you are the most beautiful woman of Magical and Muggle worlds?"

Hermione pushed Ron's body against hers and let the love roll between them.
