Hermione rested her hands on top of her bulging belly. She was sitting in a room surrounded by her friends and family. All around her, everything was blue. Her mother-in-law had gone all out for the occasion, getting blue banners, blue lights, blue balloons, and even going so far as temporarily turning the furniture blue. She smiled as she rubbed her belly and let out a contented sigh.
"Sighing at your own party?" Draco said as he came up behind her and kissed her on the cheek.
Hermione smiled up at her husband. "It was a sigh of contentment, thank you very much." She answered cheekily.
Draco smiled at her warmly. "Good, just want to make sure you aren't worrying yourself. The baby is due soon."
"I'm aware. Trust me; he won't let me forget it." She said, thinking of all the kicking she had to endure for the past month.
"Hello Hermione!" Harry said as he came over to her from across the room.
Hermione went to stand so she could hug him but found herself having trouble getting up. She could hear her husband snickering next to her when Harry came up to her side quickly.
"No, no, stay seated. No need to get up for me." He said as he helped her back in her seat. He gave her a quick peck on the cheek before continuing. "Sorry Ginny couldn't come by. She's just as pregnant as you and can barely stand. But she sends her love and she says she can't wait for our children to be playmates."
Draco rolled his eyes but chose not to say anything. Harry gave a quick nod in agreement but Hermione was too busy trying to get comfortable to notice.
"Oh, Harry. Thank you so much for coming." Hermione said, finally settling back in her seat. "Have you seen anyone else?"
"I've just arrived but I think I saw Ron back there." He said, pointing in the general direction from which he came. Over the past year, Hermione was able to truly forgive Ron for what happened and let him back in her life. Not as much as before certainly, but he was there as a friend.
They all looked the way Harry motioned to but when they saw the red head, they noticed he was chatting amicably with a shorter black haired girl. In fact, it looked like it was friendlier than just amicable chatter. Hermione's eyebrows knitted together and she saw a look of shock on both her companions faces.
"I didn't know he was friends with Pansy." Harry said, staring at the couple.
Draco nodded his head. "Me neither. I didn't know they even got along."
They all watched as Ron took the witch's hand and give her a kiss on the cheek. Hermione smiled at the scene before her. "Well, Pansy has been divorced for 6 months now. Maybe it's a good thing." She said as the couple made their way over to them.
"Hey, 'Mione." Ron said with a lopsided smile. "Congratulations and all that."
"Thanks Ron." Hermione said sincerely.
"Oh Hermione! I'm so happy for you!" Pansy squealed. "Have you decided what you're going to name him?"
Hermione looked at Draco, both of them remembering the first argument they had about baby names. Draco bent down to take her hand and she rewarded him with a brilliant smile.
"You see, Hermione wanted a more muggle name for the baby." Draco started to explain.
"And Draco wanted to continue with the family tradition of being named after constellations." Hermione continued. "So, we managed to find a compromise."
"So, what is it? What have you decided?" Pansy asked impatiently.
Hermione smiled up at her husband. "Leo. He will be Leo Malfoy."
Harry smiled warmly at the couple. Never in a million years did he think the couple in front of him would have come so far. "That's a perfect name." He replied and he meant that sincerely.
