With a smile and a song life is just like a bright sunny day. Your cares fade away, and your heart is young.-Snow White
"Do you, Fred Gideon Weasley, take this witch to be your magically and lawfully wedded wife?" Percy asked the question in a serious voice, but his sparkling eyes gave away his excitement. I was smiling like an idiot, I couldn't get over the fact that it had all panned out, I was actually at the altar with Hermione Granger. She was marrying me because she loved me, I hadn't drugged her, charmed her, or even begged, she'd just said yes.
"I do." I said quickly, and extremely eagerly, which caused Hermione to smile even wider by my side. I loved her smile, it was the happiest smile in the world, like liquid joy.
Merlin, I'm getting sappy. However, after what it took to get Hermione to go out on a date with me, I think I've earned it.
"Do you, Hermione Jean Granger, take this wizard to be your magically and lawfully wedded husband?" She caught my eyes, her chocolate ones were full of tears and sparkling brightly.
"I do." She said quickly, her voice emotional and quiet. A thrill shot through me as Percy raised his wand and smiled. It had happened, she'd said I do. Hermione had actually said I do!
"Do you have the rings?" Percy asked. George stepped forward with a grin and handed me the ring. I held it with shaky fingers, and then to my greatest horror, I dropped the bloody thing. My eyes grew wide and I just stared at the grass in annoyance. How could I drop the ring? I'd finally gotten the girl to come to the altar, and I dropped the ring!
I knelt down quickly and started running my hands through the grass, but I couldn't find it. A hand on my shoulder stopped me and I looked up to see George holding out his wand.
"May I?" He asked with a grin on his face. I stood back up, blushing. How had I not thought of that? George grinned even wider and mumbled 'accio.' The ring flew up and he deftly caught it before handing it back to me.
"Okay," Percy said, fighting back a smile. "Repeat after me, Fred. With this ring I thee wed." I held the ring in still shaking fingers and slipped it on her steady hand.
"Hermione, repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed." She said the line and slipped the ring on my shaking hand with a little bit of difficulty.
"By the power invested in me by the Ministry of Magic, I declare you magically and lawfully wedded." He circled his wand over us and I felt the magical bindings put on us. It was neat, I felt a slight pull towards Hermione, it was like I now had internal compass, I knew where she was.
"You may kiss the bride." Percy said, finally coming to the part of the ceremony I had most been looking forward too. I smiled wickedly and leaned towards Hermione, wrapping my arms around her waist. Her eyebrows raised for a moment before she smiled and leaned forward. Our lips met and we sealed the vows and magic. Fireworks sounded all around us, earning a startled squeak from Hermione. We broke the kiss a moment later and Hermione instinctively looked up. It was a beautiful night, the moon was bright and thousands of stars lit the night. The firework display George and I had set up out shone them both though. Hundreds of hearts lit the sky and they formed two letters, and H and a F. George had laughed when he heard what I had planned but he'd followed through and helped me.
Hey, I was going all out, I was only going to get married once. Besides, Hermione was worth it. When she saw the fireworks in the sky a grin broke out across her lips and she let out a happy laugh. That was the best sound in the world. Percy even let out a laugh.
"I now announce, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Weasley!" He bellowed, and Hermione and I ran back down the aisle.
"I must say, Mrs. Weasley, you dance divinely." I said, grinning like a maniac as I twirled around with my wife. It was supposed to be a slow song, but I was spinning her around in my own silly dance and I was earning deep belly laughs from her on account of it. I was on cloud nine, I was married to the most beautiful witch, and she was happy. I hadn't even had to beg!
"You dace extraordinarily, Mr. Weasley." She replied, laughing when I dipped her. The song ended and I pulled her back up right, leaning in for a quick kiss.
"Might I have the next dance?" Harry questioned behind me. I winked at Hermione before spinning around and bowing to Harry.
"Why yes you may." I grinned again and grabbed his hand, spinning around with him. Hermione laughed behind me while Harry looked surprise. I dropped his hand after one moment and stepped back, letting him dance with my wife.
Merlin I loved the sound of that. 'My wife.'
"You are grinning like an idiot." George said behind me, his own voice betraying his excitement and happiness. I turned towards him, not bothering to suppress my smile.
"Of course I am, it's not every day that I marry a brilliant, beautiful witch, and beat my twin in a bet."
"What?" he asked, taking his eyes off Hermione and Harry's dancing forms.
"You heard me, I beat you in a bet." I replied, grinning mischievously. He raised his eyebrow and shook his head.
"I've no idea what you are talking about, Freddie."
"Come on, you remember. It was that day in WWW, the day I told you I was going to marry Hermione. You laughed and said no way." His eyes lit up in realization and he laughed again.
"You'd have laughed at yourself and said no way as well. You were pathetic and crazy." He said, waving his hand as though the matter was of no importance.
"Yeah, well this pathetic and crazy man got her to say hello and I do."
"Feel better?" he asked, smiling at me like he thought I was crazy. I nodded my head, fighting back a grin.
