Chapter 18: Getting better and telling her?
The next morning, Hermione woke up in a good mood. She had a peaceful sleep and she hadn't had that in a long time. She looked over to her right and saw Severus sitting right next to her. She smiled. This was turning out to be a great morning.
"Good morning Sev." She said, causing Severus to wake up. He smiled at her. He bent down and placed a gentle kiss on her lips.
"Good morning love. How are you feeling?" Severus said.
"I feel much better. Though, I did have a little cramping last light." Hermione replied. Severus frowned at this.
"How so?" Severus asked.
"Well, it felt like my stomach was twisting and turning, it was like I needed to take a really big dump in the toilet. Sorry for that description, but that's how I felt. But it turned out that it was just a gigantic fart." Hermione explained. Feeling a little embarrassed about the detail. Severus did chuckle about the description, but new why it caused it.
"Do you need a pain reliever?" Severus asked.
"No, feel better. What's wrong Severus?" Hermione asked as she could tell something was bothering him.
"N-Nothing love. N-nothing at all." Severus tried to hide it. Hermione gave him a stern look.
"Severus. Tell me the truth. What's wrong?" Hermione asked.
"When Malfoy rapped you, Poppy checked over to see if you were alright. And, what she discovered, when she told me, I knew you would be devastated." Severus started to say.
"What? Do I have some kind of disease?" Hermione asked worriedly.
Severus gulped and hoped to any entity out there that she wouldn't cast him out for doing this. He was only looking out for her best interest, and keeping the baby would cause her trouble.
"When I tell you, please, please don't be mad at me." Severus pleaded. Hermione looked at him curiously, taking his hands into hers, she replied.
"I'm not going to be mad at you. I love you. Nothing will change that. Please, tell me." Hermione said. Severus took a deep breath. Then, he let the words flow threw his mouth.
"Poppy found out that you were pregnant. He got you pregnant." Severus said. Hermione's face paled.
"I-I'm pregnant?" Hermione said in shock.
"You were pregnant. I hate to say this, but both Poppy and I were thinking for your best interest. So, that tea you drank, contained an abortion potion." Severus said. He waited for her response. He knew this was the end.
"How….How….could you!" Hermione said. Tears swelling in her eyes.
"Poppy and I were thinking in your best interest. Neither of us thought that you would want to keep the baby." Severus said.
"Also, Poppy found out, if you kept the baby, there would be complications during your pregnancy. I couldn't let you suffer. Because of Malfoy." Severus said. Hermione sat up a little more, and flung her arms around his neck.
"I'm sorry Severus. I love you so much. Even though, I don't necessarily believe in abortion, but when you're raped, that's a different story. The only baby I'll ever carry would be yours." Hermione said as she sobbed against Severus chest. Severus sighed in relief. He wrapped his arms around his love and held her tight.
"I love you so much Hermione. You mean everything." Severus said and he kissed the top of her head.
"Thank you for telling me. It means so much. Even though I wish you would've told me before I drank the tea." Hermione said.
"I'm soo sorry my love. Please, forgive me?" Severus asked.
Hermione looked up, and she kissed Severus passionately on the lips. After kissing for what seemed like forever, they pulled apart.
"I forgive you Severus. It's okay really, I wouldn't want to have Malfoy's baby anyways. We don't need any more of them walking around on the earth." Hermione said. Both Severus and Hermione laughed. 'This was a good morning.' She thought.
