"Scorpius, open up! Oh fuck, fuck, fuck!" Lily screamed as she pounded on the door. "SCORPIUS! Open up, you little--!"
"Young lady, these are not the hours to be screaming in a building filled with familes." An old lady stuck her head out the door of the flat next to Scorpius'.
"Yeah, well, if you only knew how I fucked up, you'd--"
"Lily? What happened?" Scorpius voice interrupted her.
"Finally!" she screamed when she saw him in just his pants, before entering his flat without an invitation.
Scorpius gave Mrs. Hughes an apologetic smile before going inside. Lily was pacing back and forth across his tiny living room bumping her knee into the arm of his sofa each time. Choked sobs escaped her lips as she tugged at her red locks in anger. She muttered an occasional 'oh fuck' between cries.
"Lily, I'm freaking out here. What's wrong?" She stopped dead on the spot, and turned to look at him, eyes red with fury.
"Oh I'm so sorry, Mr. Malfoy. I didn't mean to freak you out but, you see, I'm fucking freaking out here too!" she yelled as she threw a portrait against the wall. It was the picture of Scorpius with the whole Weasley-Potter clan in his fourth year that was usually over the small chimney. Then, her demeanor changed abruptly. She sighed, defeated, and looked at Scorpius. "I'm pregnant, Scorpius," she whispered.
Scorpius was shocked. He didn't know what to do, what to say. He couldn't move. He just stood there, mouth open wide as Lily sobbed uncontrollably over his ragged couch.
"Well? Say something!" she demanded of him.
"What do you want me to tell you? I'm still processing the information." Her sobs increased and she choked on her own saliva. "Shh... it's okay. It'll be okay. Just... just breathe," he cooed in her ear as he held her in his arms.
"I can't do this. What are Dad and Mum going to say? I only graduated last week, for Merlin's sake!" Scorpius' bare shoulder was getting covered in tears and other gross things he preferred not to think about at the moment. "You know the- the first th--thing I thought when...when I discovered I was p--pregnant?" She hiccuped as her brown eyes locked with his grey ones.
He shook his head feeling sorry for her as he caressed her hair.
"I thought...the father should know. No matter what I decide to do, he must know..." Lily looked intently at the floor as silent, sporadic tears escaped her eyes.
Scorpius gave her a warm smile. "Then what are you doing here? You should go tell Hugo."
"Yeah... but I thought one of us should be calm when I tell him." She smiled sadly.
"Everything's going to be just fine, Lily. You'll see." He hugged her.
"Thank you, Scor. I knew you would understand, like always..."
A/N: People, I've received two reviews with the same. I know Hugo is Lily's cousin. That's why there's a big Warning sign at the beginning saying "counsincest" which is the fusion of cousin + incest. I did it on purpose. I like cousincest in Harry Potter fanfiction. I discovered it a while ago and I like it. We all have different kins. And to each its own, right? That clarified, thanks for reading and reviewing (if you do).
