AN: Characters are not mine, just the plot.

Chapter Fifteen

Today was Hermione's 25th birthday, and there was a huge party to celebrate. It was being held at the new Malfoy Manor. Draco had been planning it for weeks, with the help of Mrs Weasley.

Hermione sat in her back garden looking at the scene before her and realising it was the best gift she had ever received. All of the Weasley's were there, including partners and children, along with members of the Order, and friends from school.

She could hear the children laughing and screaming as they played, as well as the hum of conversation coming from the adults as they all caught up. She realised she was truly blessed, she had the best family in the world, and it was even better as it was one she had made herself.

Draco came up behind her kissing her head as he wrapped his arms around her.

"Happy?" he asked.

"More than you know" she answered, turning in his arms to kiss him, "thank you" she whispered.

He looked at her confused, "what for?"

"For being there, for being you, and most of all for showing me that you can make your own family, and for making one with me".

Tears were falling down both of their faces at the honesty and beauty of her words, "and its a family that is growing" she smiled.

Draco looked at her and then realised what she meant, "really".

She smiled and took his hand and placed it on her still flat belly, "its a boy".

Draco kissed his wife, feeling happier than had ever been in his life, he had a family of his own and it was the most loving one he had ever known.

Together they had found the perfect family, one that was all of their own.


AN: The end.
