Summary: Alison Harriet, Harry, Potter disappeared at the age of twenty-one. Years later, a vampire, though no one knows it, appears in London with a striking resemblance to the Girl-Who-Lived. Yet she didn't come alone, as a man arrived with her. Now the duo must survive a normal life filled with challenges and plots to ruin their happiness. Can they pull through, or will one little fact destroy them?
Notes: As with some ideas recently, a female!Harry with a creature element has attracted me. The plot bunny appeared and I actually wanted to write it. The title comes from a plant that appears in the story and relates to Alison. Also, Harry will be called Alison in text and either Alison or Harry by the characters.
Epilogue: Life After
Alison hugged her daughter as her two children got off of the train from Hogwarts. Rosalita was growing into a very beautiful woman and had just returned home from her third year at Hogwarts. Vincent shook his head at what Alison was doing to his sister. Alison saw the shake of his head and immediately gave him his own hug. Vincent squirmed for a moment, though he did return her hug. Alison smiled at that.
She began to lead them towards the exit that led to the Muggle section of the train station. "I'm glad that you two made it through yet another year at Hogwarts. I always miss the two of you when you're away."
Vincent shook his head. "People aren't staring at us any longer." Rosalita giggled at those words from her brother. Alison got them to the other side of the barrier and the two quickly noticed Hermione. The brown-haired woman was holding a little girl in her arms. Rosalita smiled at the sight of the woman and ran over. She hugged the older woman carefully. Hermione returned the hug with one arm, though she had to adjust her hold on the girl in her arms first.
Rosalita looked up at Hermione and then over at the little girl. "Can I hold Carrie?" She stepped back to give them room to look at each other. Hermione handed the little girl over to Rosalita. Rosalita held onto the two-year-old toddler. The little girl looked at Rosalita and a smile spread across her face. Rosalita smiled back at the little girl.
The little girl then giggled and hugged Rosalita around her neck. "Rosy." Rosalita's smile became wider at the little girl's use of her name. Alison walked over at a much more sedate pace with Vincent next to her.
Alison shook her head. "So, are you, Carrie, and Draco going to be joining us at the restaurant?" Hermione took her eyes off of Rosalita and looked at Alison.
She then nodded. "Yes, we'll be joining you. Draco will be joining us at the restaurant instead of arriving with us. So, I take it that we should be going?" Alison nodded. Rosalita handed Carrie over to Hermione and the group began to walk towards the exit of the train station. Vincent handed Rosalita her trunk. The girl stuck her tongue out at her brother. He rolled his eyes and followed after his mother with Rosalita trudging behind him.
A Little While Later
The group arrived at the restaurant after dropping the trunks off at the Weasley residence. Alison smiled when she saw that Bill and Draco were already at the restaurant. Alison shook her head as they made their way over. Hermione smiled with Carrie still in her arms.
The group sat down. Draco reached over and took Carrie from Hermione's arms and kissed the little toddler. Bill saw that and smiled. He then looked at his children. "So, how was school?"
Rosalita and Vincent looked at each other before deciding to answer at the same time. "Fine." Alison laughed at the fact that the two had said the same thing at the same time. It was amusing. Bill shook his head and put an arm around his wife. Alison leaned into him. She was glad that he was there to support her.
Hermione looked at them and then at everyone else. She then shook her head. "You know, it has been a rather good few years." The other adults in the group nodded at that. After all that they had put up with years earlier, it was nice to have some years that weren't riddled with disasters. It was something that they could appreciate after all of the different things that they had to put up with.
Alison nodded again. "Well, it hasn't been perfect, there have been some bumps in the road. However, it's nothing like all of those years ago." Hermione nodded. It was something that they could all appreciate. Bill just squeezed Alison's shoulder. Draco nodded. They were all going to be in agreement on this one. After all, they were all appreciative of such things. Hermione didn't say anything else as she took Carrie from Draco and kissed the top of her head.
Draco watched them for a moment. "We would always do something for what we have now. I wouldn't give it up." The group fell silent. Vincent and Rosalita had been listening, but they quickly became involved in their own conversation. Adult conversations could be boring. It didn't matter what age they were, they still found the conversations that their parents had boring.
Alison shook her head. "I agree. Now, let's change the topic." The adults nodded and moved onto something else. After all, they had had enough of that topic. It wasn't their present. Alison smiled as a new topic took over their conversation. She was happy with what was happening. Her life was where she wanted it to be, and she would never give that up.
A/N: Well, here's the end of the story. So, I hope that you all enjoyed this story. Later.
