Welcome Home

Lily was being discharged from St. Mungo's today, and she was finally going to be going home with little Harry. James was very excited; he could finally be with his two favourite people in the whole world. He hadn't liked Harry being in a room with all the other little babies, only being allowed to come out when he needed feeding, but rules were rules, and James wasn't a rule breaker anymore.

"Hey Lils! Hey Harry! It's time to go home!" said James in excitement as he picked up his wife and son from St. Mungo's. "Wait until you see your room Harry, your mother and I spent a lot of time working on it."

"James, slow down." Said Lily with a laugh. "I know you're happy to see us, but I am not running all the way back to our house. Where did you park the car?"

James, who had been doing a slight skip in his excitement, slowed down obligingly and held his arms out to hold Harry. "Fine, but can I hold Harry then?"

Lily handed Harry to James as they walked towards their car. They weren't going to apparate, because Lily was too protective of Harry and didn't want anything to happen to him. Not that anything was likely to happen, thought James. But he wasn't going to argue with Lily; he didn't know how long it would be until her hormones returned to their normal level.


Upon arriving at their cottage in Godric's Hollow, James bounded out of the car, grabbed Harry in one hand and Lily's things in the other, and basically ran inside, with Lily following behind, chuckling at her husband's behaviour. Once inside the cottage, Lily felt a wave of calm wash over her. She'd only been away from the house for a few days, yet it seemed like forever, and she was just glad to be back in familiar surroundings.

It felt great to be home again.

A/N: Merry Christmas everyone! I was going to post a Lily/James Christmas one, but I couldn't think up any good ideas for one, so I decided the sequel to my other fic, 9 Months 333 Days 7992 Hours would be a good enough substitute yeh? I know this is a really short chapter, but please let me know what you think!

Thanks to tasha27 for beta-ing this for me!
