As I've been following the plot of the books I thought I better add a 19 years later, or in this case 15 since 19 just didn't work.
Well, I hope you enjoy this last chapter!
"Daddy! Papa! Wake up!"
Severus let out a "oomph" when the weight of their youngest son, three year old Noah, landed on his stomach.
He cracked his eyes open to see the smiling boy leaning over him. Excited green eyes stared into amused black ones.
"Come on!" Noah shouted and began jumping up and down in his excitement "Get up, get up!" Severus cringed due to the uncomfortable weight on his chest caused by Noah's jumping and had to reach out and still his son.
The lump beside them groaned and rolled over. Then Harry's messy head of hair appeared from under the covers as he rubbed a hand over his face "What is it?" he slurred sleepily.
"Come on Papa!" Noah said stretching one of his small hands out to pull the covers away from Harry "We need to go!"
"Where are we going?" Harry asked sitting up.
"To King's Cross!" Noah shouted and his eyes lit up.
"We are?" Harry asked in mock surprise, King's Cross had been the only thing little Noah had been able to talk about for the last two weeks "I didn't know we were going to King's Cross?"
Noah gave him a wide-eyed expression "Yes you did Papa! We're going to King's Cross and we are going to get to see the big red steam engine. Isn't that right Daddy?" Noah looked expectantly at Severus.
"Yes," Severus said matter-of-factly "I believe so."
"Uh huh," Noah said "and it's gonna be just like mine but bigger."
"Oh…" Harry said "I remember now. Right, we are supposed to be going to King's Cross today."
Noah nodded enthusiastically.
"We should get ready then," Harry said "maybe you should go wake up Lesley and Al while we're getting dressed, to make sure they're ready too."
"Okay!" Noah said happily, rolling off the bed and running out the door. Harry and Severus could hear him yelling "Albus, Lesley get up, it's time to go to King's Cross!" as he ran down the hall.
"You know Lesley will be none too pleased with you for that" Severus said, but he had a small smile on his face.
"Well," Harry said "she did ask me to remember to wake her up this morning."
Severus grinned and leaned down to place a quick kiss on Harry's lips. "Come on," he said when he pulled back "we better get a move on before Noah comes back."
Harry's hand reached up and he pulled Severus down for a slightly longer kiss before he got up and made his way to the bathroom to have a quick shower.
Severus watched him with a grin, until he heard a door being slammed down the hall and Lesley's annoyed voice yelling at Noah to leave her alone, and decided he better get up and find his son something less intrusive to do.
"Lesley, Albus!" Harry called up the stairs "hurry up; you both need to have some breakfast before we head to the station."
"Coming Papa" Lesley called back and then he heard her coming down the stairs, pulling her heavy trunk behind her as she tried to maneuver it down the stairs.
Harry took out his wand and levitated it out of her hands "I'll put this in the front hall for you."
"Thanks Papa" Lesley said kissing his cheek before walking past him and making her way to the kitchen.
Harry spelled the trunk into the hall and then joined her and Severus in the kitchen. Severus was just placing a plate with eggs, bacon and fruit in front of Lesley.
"Where's your brother?" Harry asked as he sat down beside her "We'll be late if he doesn't get down here soon."
Lesley looked up "He's having some kind of hissy fit" she said and Harry shot Severus a worried look, Albus was the most levelheaded of their three children and he didn't get upset often. "I tried to talk to him," Lesley continued "but he yelled at me and said he wanted to be left alone."
"I'll go talk to him" Severus said and Harry nodded.
Severus walked up the steps and down the hall until he was standing outside of Albus' room, he knocked on the door.
"Go away!" Albus called from inside.
Severus shook his head and gently pushed the door open. Severus peered in and saw that Albus was sitting on his bed with his head in his hands.
Severus noted that the room was a mess, which was unusual for Albus as he normally kept his room spotless and organized. Clothes littered the floor beside the half empty trunk near the foot of Albus' bed and a few books lay open on the floor. Severus looked down and saw that there was a book lying near his feet, it looked as though Albus had thrown it.
Severus bent down and picked up the book, before walking farther into Albus' room "Al?" he asked softly "What's wrong?"
Albus looked up at him with a frown, their eyes meeting. Alone of their three children Albus had inherited his eyes and they looked at him defiantly for a moment "I couldn't figure out what to bring."
Severus knew that was a lie, Albus had been packed for weeks and all his stuff had been organized neatly in his trunk the night before.
He placed the book on Albus' desk and took a seat beside him on the bed "What's really bothering you?"
Albus sighed and looked at his feet. Severus studied him for a moment, out of all of his children Albus was most like him and Severus found that they connected better than Harry did with him. Whenever Albus had a problem he was more likely to seek Severus out, that wasn't saying that he loved Severus more than Harry, just that he felt more comfortable with him.
"Hey," Severus said gently, placing his hand on Albus' shoulder "you can tell me."
Albus looked up at his dad, his eyes slightly watery "What if nobody likes me?" he asked, his voice was barely audible.
Severus squeezed Albus' shoulder in a comforting way and said "Albus, you are a friendly, smart, charming young wizard; there's no way people won't like you."
"You think?" Albus asked.
"I don't think, I know." Severus said "It's hard to go to a new school and make new friends but every other first year will be feeling the same way. They might not show it, but I guarantee that they all will be feeling a little insecure about making friends, and what to expect at Hogwarts.
"Besides you won't be alone," Severus said "Lesley will be there, and so will Teddy and Rose."
Albus bit his lip, something he picked up from Harry, and said "I almost forgot about Rose.
Severus nodded "I'm sure she'll be just as nervous as you are, I'd bet she'd like to have your company on the train ride there, unless you're planning to stay here which might just be the case if we don't hurry and get going."
"No, I'm coming," Albus said "thanks Dad."
Severus gave Albus a one armed hug and the gestured to the clothes and books on the floor "Now let's get this cleaned up shall we?"
Albus nodded and hopped off the bed.
Noah pulled on Harry's hand as they approached the barrier at King's Cross, his eyes kept darting around as he looked at all the trains in the station but none seemed to hold his interest for long. "Are we almost there Papa?" he asked excitedly.
"Yep, just through here," Harry said as he pointed to the wall "Lesley why don't you go first?" he called to his daughter.
Tossing her long black, mid-back length hair over her shoulder, Lesley nodded and ran with her cart into the barrier and disappeared through it.
Albus looked back at his parents before following his sister through the wall.
Severus, Harry and Noah followed him.
When they got to the other side Noah let out a cheer and jumped up and down "Papa look! There it is! There it is!"
Harry sent a grin at Severus as they both watched their overeager son's face light up as he pulled Harry towards the train.
"It's soo big!" Noah said as he stared up at the train, his eyes as wide as saucers.
"Harry!" Harry heard his name being called from the other end of the platform and saw Ron and Hermione with their children Rose and Hugo.
"Come along Noah," Harry said taking the little boy's hand, "let's go see Auntie Hermione and Uncle Ron."
Noah pouted for a second; he didn't want to move away from the train.
"They're near the front of the train Noah; maybe we'll get a look at the conductor?" Harry said.
"Really?" Noah asked excitedly, and then just about dragged Harry to the other end of the platform before Harry could answer.
"Hey," Harry said when he got to Ron and Hermione, he had to stop Noah from running straight past them and told the child that they would go up to the front in a few minutes before the train left.
Noah pouted and crossed his arms over his chest, but after one sharp look from Severus who had followed them, he didn't attempt to complain.
"Hey," Albus said to Rose, a look of relief showed on his face as Rose beamed at him.
"How was the drive?" Harry asked Ron and the other man snorted.
"Almost ran off the road before we could get here," Ron said "Damn muggle contraptions, makes you wish we still had dad's old magical car."
"It's probably still running around the Dark Forest," Harry said "saving rule-breaking children from giant spiders."
Ron shuddered at the thought and Hermione who had been listening to their conversation shook her head.
Lesley ran up to them then "I just got my trunk put on the train," she said and then smiled at Ron and Hermione.
"Hey Squirt," Ron said and Lesley turned bright red.
"Uncle Ron, I've told you not to call me that in public!" Lesley ground out.
Ron looked apologetic "Sorry, old habits and all."
Hermione was shaking her head in amusement as Lesley rolled her eyes "Well don't let it happen again."
"I swear this place gets busier every year" The group turned to see a haggard but happy looking Remus, with Tonks and Teddy following him.
"Teddy!" Lesley shouted and flung her arms around him, Teddy was blushing when she pulled away but Lesley didn't notice.
"It's just the kids getting taller," Harry said as he patted Remus on the shoulder "Or maybe you're shrinking…" he teased.
Remus shook his head but he looked amused.
A whistle sounded and everyone looked towards the train "You four better get on the train," Hermione stated as she looked back at the children.
"Right," Lesley said leaning up to give both Harry and Severus a kiss on the cheek "See you at Christmas," she said to them and then grabbed Teddy's arm after he had said goodbye to his parents, and began pulling him towards the train.
Albus bit his lip as he looked over at the train but after a reassuring smile from Severus he gave both his parents a hug and then hurried off with Rose to get on the train.
Harry placed a hand on Severus' arm and said quietly "He'll be alright."
Severus looked at his son's retreating form and stated "I know he will."
Then the moment was broken by Noah shouting "Papa! It's going to leave!"
Harry laughed and hurried over to his youngest son; he picked Noah up in his arms and brought him over to the front of the train so that they could wave to the conductor.
Harry plunked down on the couch next to Severus and let out a deep breath "It's been a long day" he stated.
"It has," Severus agreed as he placed a letter in Harry's hands "This came while you were putting Noah to bed."
Harry opened it and smiled when he recognized Albus' neat handwriting.
"Shall I read it?" Harry asked.
Dear Dad and Papa,
You were right about Hogwarts, it's amazing. I'm already having fun and it's only the first day.
I thought you'd want to know that I was sorted into Slytherin. I was surprised at first because I thought I'd be put in Ravenclaw like Lesley. I'm sort of glad I wasn't though; I don't think it would have been the right house for me.
Rose was put in Gryffindor, though that was pretty much a given. We still plan to hang out though, like on the weekends and stuff.
I've already made friends and my dorm mates are pretty cool.
Well I've got to go; Scorpius and I are going to play a game of exploding snap before we have to go to bed.
"Scorpius?" Harry asked after reading the letter "As in Scorpius Malfoy…oh brother."
When Severus didn't respond he turned to look at him, the man was smiling. Harry grinned at him, there was obvious pride coming off of Severus in waves.
"I knew he'd be fine," Severus stated "…and in Slytherin" the man's eyes gleamed.
Harry laughed and moved closer to his husband "Well with our genes it was bound to happen sooner or later."
Severus just grinned at him until Harry added "I bet Noah will turn out to be a Gryffindor."
"Heaven Forbid," Severus said pulling Harry towards him "I already have my hands full with just one Gryffindor."
Harry laughed and kissed Severus lips languidly, their lips moving slowly together.
Severus pulled away after a moment and whispered "I love you."
Harry just grinned and kissed him again.
A/N: Yeah so it's finished :)
Thank you everyone who has stuck with this story until the end and especially to the reviewers who kept me motivated with their kind and inspiring words.
Though I am going to miss this story I'm so glad that I've finally finished it, as it was the first ever fanfiction I started writing and I feel accomplished as I post this later chapter up.
In other news, I've closed the poll which I had up and the results are posted on my profile. I will now be working on 'Time Altered' and 'The Bachelor'; you can also find more information about it on my profile.
