Chapter 8

(A/N: I strayed from my plan of having the next chapter written, and subsequentially, this is a very short chapter. I'm sorry I'm not updating my other stories, but I'm really hooked on writing this one right now. Plus, I'm having some major blockadge on BFTP and WYD and WTF else I'm writing. I just painted my nails and they look pretty.)

The next morning shone bright and early in the Potter household. Ginny made her way down to the kitchen to prepare breakfast for the horde of people currently in her home. Ginny hummed as she worked; she didn't really mind being a stay-at-home mother. Her only wish was to be much cooler than her own mother.

Sure enough, as soon as the bacon hit the stove, she heard the tell-tale sounds of hungry men. Footsteps banged through the large house as the four grown men ran blindly down the two flights of stairs. Harry, of course, was first, being closest to the kitchen to begin with. He landed right behind her, stopping just as she turned around with a giant plate of-

"PANCAKES?" yelled Harry, "WTF WOMAN WHERE IS TEH BACON??"

"Still cooking, numbnuts." Ginny rolled her eyes.

"Ooh, haven't been called that in a while…"

"Not since before the children, no. Feels good. Numbnuts." Ginny relished in saying the name and sighed, "It always was my favorite nickname for you."

"I, on the other hand, have missed calling you…" he whispered in her ear, his arms snaking around her from behind.

Twirling around, she replied fake-ly, "Why, Mr. Potter! That is quite inappropriate!"

"Eh, but you love it"

Spatula in hand, she pecked him quickly before returning to her work. "Eggs are almost done," she commented cheerily.

"Eggs?" James and Sirius' heads sneakily peered around the open doorframe. Ginny smiled and gestured for them to sit at the large table. Planting one last kiss on top of Ginny's head, Harry takes a place at the head.

"Enjoying the future?" Harry grinned and passed the plate of pancakes to Sirius. At this point, Remus and Lily joined the fun.

"Haven't seen enough of it at this point to tell, really," remarked Remus.

"That's going to change very soon," said Ginny, holding up a letter in Hermione's smooth script, "as we're all off to the Ministry of Magic!"
