Fighting For True Love

Epilogue

"So what happened next mommy?" ten-year-old Piper asked eagerly.

"Just be patient little one. Let see, oh yes. Just after I had you Uncle Albus came and told us the great news. Uncle Harry, Uncle Draco and Uncle Lucius had defeated the evil Lord Voldemort once and for all." Hermione answered.

"And that's it? No huge celebration? What did everyone do now that he was gone? That couldn't be it." Piper began.

"There was a celebration. One week later. That was also the night your father and I revealed that we were married and that you were his child and not Draco's, like everyone was made to believe." Hermione said.

"How did everyone react?" Piper asked.

"Well, everyone was shocked. The Hufflepuffs and the Ravenclaws were fine with it. They thought your father and I were a perfect match. The Slytherins weren't happy. Well, those that were still alive anyway. And the Gryffindors. Oh, they all believed that your father had cast some spell over me, or that he had used an unforgivable on me.

"But, by the time graduation came along, everyone was used to the idea. As for what everyone did, let's see. Uncle Ron went off to play Quidditch for England, while starting college. Your Uncle Harry went off to the university and two years later he married Ginny.

"Uncle Draco became your father's apprentice. He's now the Potions Master at Hogwarts, married Susan Bones, and they had your best friend Narcissa and her two brothers. I went to the university and studied Arithmacy and Transfiguration." Hermione answered.

"And Uncle Lucius is now head of Slytherin and the Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor. Uncle Sirius and Remus run an Apocrathy shop in Diagon Alley. Uncle Albus and Aunt Minerva retired. And daddy is now the Headmaster and you're the Deputy Headmistress, Head of Gryffindor, and the Transfiguration professor." Piper said in a matter-of-fact tone.

"That's right little one." Hermione chuckled.

"All right Piper. Time for bed. You have a big day tomorrow." Severus said as he entered his daughter's bedroom.

"Aw. Do I have too?" Piper pouted.

"Yes. Now, lay down and go to sleep. Good night." Severus answered as he tucked her in and kissed her forehead.

"Night mom, night dad." Piper said.

"Good night little one." Hermione said as she turned out the lights.

Severus and Hermione headed to the room across the hall where Piper's twin sister and brother, Paige and Christopher, were sound asleep. They then made their way downstairs to their sitting room and sat on the couch.

"She loves the story of how we got together and defeated Voldemort doesn't she?" Severus asked as he pulled Hermione onto his lap.

"Yep. She thinks it's sweet and romantic." Hermione answered as she laid her head on his shoulder.

Severus, gently brushed her hair away from her neck and began to gently kiss her. Hermione sighed and tilted her head back, granting him further access to her neck. Hermione twisted in his arms, so that she was now straddling his waist. Severus quickly captured her lips in a passionate kiss.

Hermione threaded her fingers through his raven hair. Slowly she began to drag her hands down his body. As she moved them down his chest she undid the buttons of his shirt and pushed the garment off his shoulders tossing it behind her.

"I believe my dearest wife has evil intentions towards me this night." Severus whispered.

"You believe right. I plan on devouring every inch of you. My darling husband." Hermione whispered back as she captured his lips with hers.

Severus groaned as his wife became aggressive. She quickly yanked her shirt up and off. It joined his somewhere behind her. She waved her hand to take care of their pants and underwear. The two were blissfully nude. Hermione began to gyrate her hips. Bringing her wet center in contact with his rapidly hardening manhood.

"Oh Hermione." Severus moaned as she moved her lips down his neck and across his shoulders.

"Mmmm. Just sit back and enjoy." She whispered seductively.

Severus watched as she slowly began to kiss, lick, and nip her way down his body. She paid extra close attention to his nipples. Licking and nipping at them both. Causing her husband to hiss in pleasure the further she went. The whole time she was staring into his midnight black eyes. She smiled wickedly as she gave the head of his penis a whisper of a kiss.

"Hermione." He whispered.

Slowly she enveloped the head in her mouth. Inch by inch she slowly took his member into her hot, waiting mouth. Severus sighed in pleasure as he closed his eyes, tossed his head back and tangled his hand in her luxurious hair.

"Oh Merlin's beard. Yes. Just like that. Oh...don't stop." He moaned as she began to move her mouth faster.

She reached up and began to massage his balls as she twirled her tongue several times around his tip.

"Sweet Merlin! Hermia...so...oh you're...a...oh yesss...goddess!" He cried.

Hermione smiled. She felt a great power surge through her, knowing that she could bring this powerful, dark man, to his knees.

"Time to really have fun." She whispered.

Before Severus could even take a breath, she deep throated him two, three, four times. Each time causing him to gasp in rapture. She then popped his member out of her mouth, only to take it in her hand and begin to lick and suck his balls.

"Hermione!" He cried.

Hermione quickly alternated between her mouth and hand. She knew he was close to exploding with ecstasy.

"I'm gonna...oh...HERMIONE!" He yelled as he came.

Hermione quickly covered him with her mouth, not wasting a single drop. Once done she slowly licked him clean. She then sat back and watched her husband regain his breath.

"You are a temptress. A wonderful, beautiful, temptress." He whispered as he stared at his wife.

"Yes. But I'm your temptress." She said.

Severus then pounced. He had her pinned to the floor in the blink of an eye. Ravaging her mouth mercilessly. She wrapped her arms and legs around him. Trapping him between her legs. His left hand snaked down her body and began to rub her sensitive nub. She moaned into the kiss. Several seconds later he thrust one then two fingers deep within her.

"Yes!" She cried.

"You want to come. Don't you?" He whispered into her ear as he thrust his two fingers in and out and rubbed her clit with his thumb.

"Yes! Make me...oh gods above...make me...come!" She cried.

Severus began moving his fingers and thumb faster and harder. Within seconds her inner walls clamped down hard, almost trapping his fingers deep inside her. Hermione shuttered underneath her husband as he slowly withdrew his fingers. She then used her body weight to roll them over, so that she was now on top and back in control.

"Now, I want us to reach ecstasy together." She whispered as she impaled herself on his waiting member.

"Severus."

"Hermione."

They froze. Just savoring the feel of them being joined as one. Since his wife was calling the shots, he let her initiate movement. Hermione only waited a minute before she rocked her hips into his. Severus hissed in beauteous rapture.

"Is this what you want? Is this how you want me?" She asked seductively as she moved slowly on him.

"Oh yes. Just like this." He answered.

Hermione leaned foreword slightly. Both groaned at the new angle. Hermione began to steadily speed up her movements. Soon both were gasping for air.

"Severus...take me...from behind. Hard...fast...and deep." Hermione begged.

"Bend...over...the couch." Severus ordered.

Hermione quickly got to her feet and leaned over the couch. Severus wasted no time. He thrust hard and deep into her. Hermione cried out in pleasure.

"Is this how you want it? Hard. Deep. Fast. My balls slapping your ass? Huh? Is that how you like it?" Severus whispered huskily in her ear.

"Yes! Fuck me hard...and...deep!" Hermione answered.

"I'm so close! Please!" She screamed.

"Me too! Yes! HERMIONE!" Severus yelled as his body locked up in orgasm.

"SEVERUS!" Hermione screamed as she shuddered with their joined climax.

Severus collapsed against her back, both shuddering and sweating profusely. Slowly he withdrew and they managed to lay on the couch. Hermione waved her hand they were cleaned of their lovemaking and covered with a blanket. Over the years, Hermione's wandless magic had gotten stronger.

"Mmmm. That was wonderful." Hermione sighed.

"I agree. Now, I think we should head upstairs. After all, tomorrow you are taking Piper to get her things for her first year at Hogwarts. Right?" Severus said.

"Yes. All right, let's go to bed." She replied.

The two apparated into their bedroom and climbed into their king-size bed. After turning out the lights they wrapped their around each other and kissed one another good night.

"We really are blessed." she sighed.

"Yes. We have each other, three wonderful children and our friends. We are blessed my dear. And it all began in a detention." Severus replied.

The End
