Not My Baby
Auther's Note: Hi guys, the story I'm about to tell is one where Fred doesn't die, and it's because of Hermione. So now, he needs to find a way to repay her, and what better way to honor his motives than to take care of a child with her? Let's find out!
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter (That would be great though,) and the only characters that are mine are the baby, a woman named Judy, and her husband, Carl. Enjoy!
Fred: They should enjoy it, I mean, come on! It has ME in it.
Hermione: You are SUCH a narcissist!
Fred: Hey! I'm not a Malfoy, nor am I a girl!
Hermione: *growls in frustration*
Chapter 1: When Babies Fly
"Beauty lies in the eyes of a beholder…yet the heart "sees" more than the eyes do most of the time…and this is why we close our eyes whenever we are kissing."-------Anonymous
Business was booming at Weasely's Wizard Wheezes in the middle of August. Kids were making last minute visits to the joke shop before they were sent off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After all the renovating and trauma were over, it was time to set things as close to normal as normal could be after recuperating from a war two years previous.
Fred Weasely looked at his surroundings, and smiled. To this day, he still thinks of what might've happened if Hermione Granger hadn't yanked him out of the way before the wall came tumbling down on him from an explosion. Still, he didn't go unscathed (like many people didn't during the war), for he now had a permanent limp on his leg from when some debris came crashing down on him as he made a getaway. Oh, but how it could've been so much worse. If Hermione hadn't alfread fancied his brother, or even if Ron hadn't been standing right there, the smart, young Gryffindor would've wound up with Fred's tongue down her throat! As it was, she was neither his, nor had Ron left the premises without her. He felt like he owed her something, however.
He didn't know that he would in a very short amount of time. Unbeknownst to him, Hermione and Ron had decided that they were fighting more in their relationship, that they had as friends. They had also decided that they could feel nothing but friendship, and so, broke up a month ago.
Suddenly, someone tapped his shoulders.
"Erm…excuse me…I need some help finding a gift," Came a voice behind him.
He turned around to see Harry Potter standing there before him. "Well, if it isn't the Great Harry Potter, the boy who lived, and lived, and won," he shouted theatrically. Harry cleared his throat nervously at realizing that everyone was now staring at him as Fred continued. "Such an honor to bask in the presence of the Chosen One!"
"George, cut it out," Harry whispered nervously.
"Cut what out?" asked the real George, looking confused as he walked away from the Skiving Snack Box collection to join his twin and Harry.
Fred feigned shock and horror.
"George! The famous Harry Potter, the 'boy-who-lived-and-is-currently-dating-our-dearest-little-sister' can't even remember our names!" he wailed mockingly.
"What shall we do, dearest brother?" cried a joking George.
"We must dye our hairs different colors and take on different accents!" Fred replied dramatically.
Harry rolled his eyes and muttered, "yeah, when babies fly…"
Suddenly, before either twin could rely, a baby had indeed found one of the "Miniature Brooms" on display, had somehow got its hands on the toy, and was now barreling towards Harry, Fred, and George!
"Get out of the way!"
"Someone stop it!" were the cries of the customers in the shop.
Fred, George, and Harry tried every spell to no avail.
Suddenly, a long, slender arm shot out of the crown, grabbed the baby's foot, and yanked the baby girl free. She proceeded to sail into the air, when the owner of the arm jumped, caught the baby, and landed with a loud crash behind the counter. The three boys walked slowly over to the crash sight behind the counter when they had heard the little girl cry. What they saw made them gasp! There, cradling and soothing the baby girl in her arms, was Hermione Granger!
