Harry was poised above Draco where he had tackled the blonde just as the beginning of the Leaving Celebration had commenced. Everyone, students and teachers alike stood in shock as they stared at the two life-long rivals on the floor between the benches. Snape had moved to pull them apart but McGonagall stopped him. She gave him a look that said "Just wait a moment." He reluctantly backed down, returning his attention to the two young men on the floor.
"Do you think I'm stupid?" Harry glared at him, his soft voice carrying to everyone. "I know you're trying to ferret your way out of it but I'm not going to let you."
"Potter, I don't know what you're on about now but get the hell off of me!" Draco scowled.
"I think not, Malfoy. You made a promise and you're bloody well going to keep it." Harry replied, fisting his hands in Draco's robe.
"I thought for sure you'd forgotten about it." Draco whispered so that only Harry could hear him.
"By using sex, Draco? That's low, even for you. But I did enjoy the effort, as did you I think." Harry smirked. The twinge in Draco's backside reminded him that he did. He risked a glance around the room.
"Please don't make me do this." Draco whined, causing those around him to gape. They'd never heard Malfoy say please to anyone before.
Bright green stared into sparkling gray before Draco released a put-out sigh.
"Fine." he acquiesced. Harry removed himself and helped Draco to his feet.
Draco looked around at his friends and family and sighed again.
"Hello everyone. My name is Draco Malfoy..." he paused for effect, "Potter."
"What?" came the predictable screech from Ron at Gryffindor's table.
"Harry and I pledged ourselves to one another in both a muggle and wizarding commitment ceremony one year ago today."
"What?" Ron exclaimed again, prompting both Ginny and Hermione to smack him in the head.
"And yesterday, I discovered that I'm..." he looked at Harry, who gave him an encouraging smile. He took a deep breath, "I'm pregnant. With twins."
There was stunned silence that was only broken by the sound of a body hitting the floor. Ron had fainted.
The applause started somewhere behind them and both whirled around to see Professor Snape clapping his hands with an odd little smile on his face. Professor McGonagall quickly followed his example, tears in her eyes. One by one all the professors stood and began to clap which soon carried over to the students starting with Slytherin, followed by Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Even Ron was smiling and clapping when he finally came to.
Harry looked at Draco with a smile.
"See, you worried over nothing."
"Yeah, yeah." Draco waved him off. Harry simply hauled him close and kissed him deep, drawing a few whistles and catcalls from the students around them. Draco hugged the man he loved close to his heart and whispered in his ear.
"Best year of my life."
"Indeed." Harry replied in kind.
