When James Met Albus


James- 4 yrs.

Ginny sat in her hospital bed, holding newborn Albus Severus Potter. Harry sat on the bed to her right.

"Thank you." He whispered, "Thank you for always making me so happy. You always find new ways to make me happy. How did I get so lucky?"

Ginny smiled, "I could ask the same thing."

Just then, Molly and Arthur came in. Arthur was holding James. When James saw his parents, his face lit up.

"Daddy! Mummy!" He exclaimed. Harry stood up, went over to James, and took him in his arms.

"Hi James." Ginny said to her son with a smile.

"Ready to meet your brother?" Harry asked. Molly and Arthur took this as their cue to leave.

"Ok." James nodded his head. Harry carried James over to Ginny and Albus.

"James, this is your little brother Albus." Ginny told him as Harry sat down on the bed again.

"Can you say 'Albus'?" Harry asked James.

"Albs… Albs…" James couldn't quite get it and he had a look of determination and frustration.

"Or, you can call him Al." Ginny told her son.

"Al." James smiled at finally being able to say his name.

"Daddy?" James looked up at Harry.

"Ya?" Harry answered.

"Why is Albus so small?"

Harry and Ginny chuckled.

"It's 'cuz he's a baby." Harry told him.


"And you're a big boy. Your Al's big brother." Ginny told him


Then, James started poking Al.

"Poke! Poke! Poke!" James chanted as he poked. Al started to cry.

"James, stop." Harry gently pulled James' hand away, while Ginny tried to calm Al. But, Al only got louder. James shoved his fingers in his ears, and wrinkled his little face.

"Shhh…" Ginny cooed as she rocked Al in her arms.

James just sat there, in Harry's lap, with his fingers in his ears and his eyes shut tight. Then, James decided he needed to add to the noise.

"La, la, la, la, la, la, la…" He kept up the noise, growing louder with each 'la'.

"This turned out great!" Harry sarcastically told Ginny over the noise. She chuckled.

"We knew it would!"


A/N- Just a cute little one-shot that came to mind one time, while I was bored. (ok it was yesterday ) I love it, so cute, so James. If you read my, 'The Weasley/Potter Children Next Generation' then this little one-shot totally fits into James' personality. Plus, Daddy Harry makes me all melty inside, and Mommy Ginny. So, hope you enjoyed and don't forget to REVIEW!!! (niceness, constructive criticism, but NO FLAMES)
