It had been 10 years since seventh year at Hogwarts. Voldemort had been defeated and peace was once again alive in the wizarding world. There were Death Eaters here and there left, but they were too afraid to come out of the shadows or so it seemed.
The Ministry of Magic was stronger than ever especially their Magical Law Enforcement division. Leading the strong Aurors was none other than the Savior of the Wizarding World, Harry Potter. Many of his fellow classmates had followed in his foot steps; Ron, Ginny, Fred and George Weasley, Seamus Finnegan, and Luna Lovegood to name a few. They all had attributes that strengthened the law enforcement division. Harry was a natural leader and very powerful. Ron, although clumsy at times had a knack for getting out of tight spots. Ginny of course was beautiful and that fooled many criminals and not to mention she had a killer bat bogey hex. Fred and George of course have great sense of humors and seem to be goofing off all the time, but their inventive nature gets them out of some messy situations. Seamus had the charming accent that if he spoke fast enough confused the hell out of criminals. Then there is Luna who despite her spacey attitude is very clever and surprises everyone.
Hermione Granger became a Healer. She took her intelligence and knack for caring about people's needs before her own and became the top healer at St. Mungos. Neville Longbottom is of course a very famous herbologist and has helped out in every part of the ministry at one point or another. Draco Malfoy became a potions master and teaches at Hogwarts. He actually turned out to be quite decent after things settled down. However, he still has some strong Slytherin qualities that rear their ugly head once in awhile.
Who's married to whom you may be wondering? Well Ron and Luna got married. They have one little girl named Serena. She has the beautiful blonde hair of Luna and the bright blue eyes of Ron and not to mention lots of freckles. Despite their hectic work schedules Ron and Luna balance their time with Serena so she is not missing out on anything.
Hermione ended up marrying Viktor Krum if you can believe that. He treats her very well and keeps her high on a pedestal, but she doesn't take advantage of it. They have twins, a boy and a girl. Their names are Jasmine and Aries. They look very much alike. Jasmine has dark, bushy hair like her mothers and Aries has dark hair as well, but luckily missed out on the bushiness. He did however inherit his dad's weird nose, but hopefully he will grow into it.
Neville and Ginny ended up together. They haven't quite married yet as it took awhile for them to even get together. Harry and Ginny spent a few years being together after school, but they realized they were better as friends than lovers. Don't get me wrong, Neville was not a rebound guy. Ginny dated a bit and became closer to Neville in the process and eventually she realized how great he was.
Seamus married Lavender Brown and they spend all their spare time making love. They've got three children, rather close in age, as proof. Their names are Star, Orchid, and Lucky. They are great kids and very close.
Fred and George are the ultimate bachelors. They enjoy working their joke shop and spend too much time inventing and being Aurors to really settle down. This of course drives Mrs. Weasley crazy, but what can you do?
Lastly are Harry and Draco. I put them together because they are still single. They both had failed relationships with high school "sweethearts." As mentioned above Harry and Ginny; Draco and Pansy. Luckily for them both they separated from them on a good note and are still friends. Harry has thrown himself into his job as head Auror thus it being in the best shape in many years. He didn't spend much time thinking about why he and Ginny didn't work out, but soon enough it will start playing in his mind. Draco of course knew that him and Pansy weren't going to last. He knew why. His heart wasn't in it and Pansy wasn't the one he wanted to give his heart to. He didn't really know who his heart belonged to, but he will eventually begin to realize and will deny it.
This is a love story with some drama mixed in. Each relationship will grow throughout this story, but our focus will be on the budding relationship of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. It will start out a bit slow. Harry and Draco hadn't seen each other much in the past 10 years and both will do some serious reflecting on why they are still single. Considering that both are extremely attractive in their own right and loveable to the right person. They haven't crossed paths much because they work in separate places and have no need to cross paths other than an occasional trip into Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley. This story will however throw them into each others path more frequently as there is a disturbance inside Hogwarts and the surrounding area that will bring them together to reach a common goal. They will realize what they've been missing in their lives, but it won't be easy.
Sit back and enjoy the story and see where your broom takes you.
Harry sat amongst his friends at the Burrow. It was Serena's 5th birthday and everyone had gathered for the main event. Hermione and Viktor were there with the twins who were only a year younger than Serena. Seamus and Lavender were there deciding to take a break from their bed (they do spend time with their kids I promise). Their three little ones were running around with the others. They are 7, 5, and 4. Between Star and Orchid, Seamus had been a bit busy at work.
Bill and Fleur were there as well with their four children. They had been rather busy the past 10 years. They had two boys named Kristoff and John and two girls named Jacqueline and Cadence. They were 9, 6, 4, and 6 months. Charlie was there as well, still single. Percy was there with his wife Penelope, but they were both very involved in their careers and had no children. Fred and George of course brought lots of entertainment for all 10 kids so they would not get bored. Not that they would since they were all rather close.
Teddy Lupin was also there. He was 10 now and getting rather close to his first year at Hogwarts. He still lived with Andromeda, but saw Harry as often as he could. Harry was like an older brother to him. He didn't mind not having a fatherly figure when he had Harry.
It was a very joyous occasion for many reasons. Harry sat back and watched all the kids running around. He felt sad watching it all. He loved his nieces and nephews, but watching them made him think about what was missing in his life. He looked over at Ginny and pondered what would have happened if they had worked things out. Would they have a couple of kids like everyone else? Would he be the one who was celebrating his daughter's 5th birthday like Ron? He sighed and looked away for a moment.
Harry had noticed over the past few months that he had become more depressed about his current situation in life. He had tried dating since Ginny, but no one really struck his fancy. They were all too complicated and even when he thought he was really attracted to them and he actually kissed them he felt nothing. It always ended the same way; the girl would get mad that he wasn't reacting and storm out. He had finally given up.
"Harry, are you alright?" Hermione asked taking a seat next to him and resting her hand on his arm. Harry jumped a bit.
"Oh, uh, yeah just a bit tired with work is all. You know, it's been a bit crazy, lots going on," Harry replied fumbling over his words. Hermione looked at him and shook her head.
"Harry, I know that's not it. You can't fool me. I've known you far too long," Hermione said shaking her head once again.
Harry sighed and looked at her. Her brown eyes were looking at him with such love and care. He looked away and didn't see anyone within ear shot. He cast a Mulfiato charm around them just in case. He turned back to her and she looked at him expectantly.
"I have just been feeling a bit depressed over the past few months. I mean being here today and seeing how happy all of you are and how wonderful all your kids are just makes me feel like I am missing something in my life. You know I've dated several women, but none have sparked anything inside me and I'm just afraid I'm destined to be alone for the rest of my life," He explained feeling his eyes begin to water. Hermione smiled at him and wrapped her arms around him. He returned her embrace and willed himself to not cry.
"Oh Harry. Don't worry. You won't be alone forever. There are plenty of women out there, you just haven't found the right one and who knows maybe it's not a witch that's out there for you, maybe it's actually a wizard," Hermione suggested.
Harry pushed back and made a disgusted noise. "Are you nuts? Why on earth would you suggest that?!"
Hermione shrugged and looked out to the kids playing. "It was just a thought Harry, I'm sorry." She patted his arm and stood up and walked over to Viktor.
Harry sat back and watched her leave. He shook his head. She has got to be mental or something. There is no way that I could possibly be interested in a wizard, he thought. He made a disgusted noise again and shook his head. He walked over to the buffet table and grabbed some food. As he was turning around Ron was standing up and trying to quiet everyone down.
"Excuse me everyone, I, well, Luna and I just wanted to say a couple of things to all of you," Ron began. Everyone quieted down and turned to look at Ron and Luna. Harry sat down at a nearby table and turned his attention to them as well. Teddy sat next to him at the table and snuck a strawberry from Harry's plate. Harry glanced at him and smiled and then turned his attention back to Ron.
"Great, okay, well first of all I wanted to thank all of you for coming to Serena's party and all the wonderful gifts you've given her. Luna and I wanted to also give Serena one of her gifts from us right now while we are here with everyone," He said. Ron motioned for Serena to come over to him and Luna. She looked at them shyly.
"Serena, honey, what we have for you won't be here for a bit, but we thought we'd let you in on the secret. Serena, how do you feel about being a big sister?" Luna asked. There was a collective gasp from everyone and Serena's eyes went wide.
"I'm going to be a big sister?!" She exclaimed. Her parents nodded. Serena let a loud yippee and threw her arms around her mom and dad. She stopped and stepped back and looked at them the smile falling from her face.
"This isn't my only present is it?" She asked suspiciously. Everyone started laughing.
"No, honey, you have a few more at home," Ron replied. She jumped up again and smiled. She gave them each a strong hug and a pat on Luna's belly before she ran off to sit with her friends. Everyone was shouting congratulations to Ron and Luna when Ginny stood and cleared her throat.
"Well, congratulations guys. I guess I will also take this time to make an announcement that I'm sure you have all been waiting for. Neville and I are getting married!" Ginny cried with a big smile on her face. She flung out her left hand as all the women swarmed her. Neville blushed a deep crimson and took the congratulations from everyone else.
Harry sat back, his face went blank and he threw his arms into the air. Great, this just makes me feel fantastic, he thought.
Authors Note: Okay so this is my first Draco/Harry fan fic. I hope you guys will all like it. Please read and review. Also I might want a beta for this to help me get ideas and edit it. I have not abandoned my other story. This one was just playing around in my head so I wanted to get it written.
