A.N. Last chapter everybody! Sadly I have a small confession to make. After someone reviewed guessing the rest of the story I went back and made a small teensy little change to the ending. Without beating around the bush I am an evil person and ended the story with... well read and find out. And feel free to review and tell me just how evil I am. ; ) Goes to practice her evil laughter. (I am open to people persuading me to write a sequal fyi )
Rose sat up in bed, looking at her bemused roommates, who were staring at her.
What the hell?
"Rose Weasley!" came the shout again.
Rose slowly made her way out of bed and down the stairs to the common room where a red faced Scorpius Malfoy was standing, Genevieve Zabini and Hallie Jenkins behind him. She ignored the other students who had followed her down.
"What's going on?" she asked bewildered.
"Why don't you tell me?" Scorpius hissed at her. Rose glanced behind him to see Genevieve smirking.
"I don't know," Rose faltered at the look on Scorpius' face.
"Gen says that you used a memory charm on the father of your child!" Scorpius shouted. Whispers broke out. "So the father of your child has no idea that it's even possible-" Scorpius broke off, staring at his best friend for a moment.
"Who is the father of your baby, Rose?"
Rose paled, "Scorpius," she took a step toward him, flinching when he stepped back, anger covering his face.
"Do you even know?" he asked angrily, "or do you wipe the memories of everyone you sleep with?"
Gasps broke out, Genevieve was openly grinning now.
Anger flashed over Rose's face, "Of course not!" she shouted back, "I'm not her," she gestured at Genevieve, "I'm not a slut!" The smile left Genevieve's face as everyone giggled.
"Why would you erase someone's memory Rose?" Scorpius asked, his hands clenching at his sides. He waited for a moment.
Rose stared at him, "It's complicated," she whispered, her eyes filling with tears. Scorpius stepped back, shaking his head.
"It's like I don't even know you anymore," he said softly before turning on his heel and leaving the Gryffindor common room.
Rose burst into tears.
Albus stepped next to his cousin staring intently at her. Rose refused to meet his eyes. "You need to tell him the truth you know," he said following her gaze to Scorpius. The blond was talking to another boy in his house, ignoring the girl he was in love with.
"I know," she said miserably.
Scorpius shut the compartment door behind him. He never imagined he'd spend his last train ride leaving Hogwarts by himself, and yet there he was. He sat down, sighing as he leaned his head back against the seat. He glanced over seeing the door open before turning away.
"We need to talk Scorpius," Rose said stiffly.
"Don't bother. I owled Gavin letting him know he could be the father and just not remember it," Scorpius shot back, keeping his head turned away from the girl.
"It's not Gavin," Rose said warily sitting down next to Scorpius. Scorpius turned and looked at her for the first time in days. She looked pale and tired, hands resting on her rounded belly.
"What happened that night," Rose began before hesitating, "I was drinking. We both were. I thought- " her voice broke off, "I had- have feelings for this person and I thought that what happened that night was his way of saying he had feelings for me too," Rose laughed harshly, "stupid I know. Just because you have sex with someone, doesn't mean there are feelings there."
Scorpius watched Rose's face intently.
"We had sex and the next morning was when I realized that I- I had told him I loved him. But he didn't say it back," Rose whispered softly. There was silence.
"I guess I panicked and so, I performed a memory charm. I didn't mean to keep something like this from him," Rose said indicating her stomach.
Scorpius nodded, his jaw clenched.
"So if it's not Gavin, who is it?" The young man forced himself to ask. No matter what Rose had done, Scorpius couldn't find it in himself to stay mad.
Rose was silent for a moment. A painfully hard moment during which Scorpius found himself struggling for breath.
"I-" Rose cut off before sighing, "It's you Scorpius, you're the father of my child."
Scorpius stared at her, "What?!"
Rose reentered the room after talking with Gavin. She couldn't recommit to him. It would be too difficult considering her feelings for… She swallowed hard. She looked around the room looking for her friend and froze. Scorpius was pressed up tight against Genevieve Zabini, snogging her like there was no tomorrow. Rose felt as if a frozen ice block dropped into her stomach. She turned away and picked up the nearest drink she could find. An hour and numerous drinks later Rose found herself giggling with Ian Somerhold. He leaned down and began whispering in her ear as his hands traveled to her waist.
"Hey! Rosie," Scorpius threw his arm around Rose's shoulders and turned to glare at Ian.
"Can we help you with something," he snarled at Ian. The boy hesitated for a moment and then turned and left.
"Hey Rosie, wanna go somewhere else?" Scorpius slurred, winking at Rose. Her heart began beating harder.
"Okay," she giggled.
The two made their way to the Slytherin dorms, giggling and occasionally stopping to kiss. They made their way into the boys' dorm still kissing. At this point, driven by lust and alcohol their kisses were sloppy. Scorpius had Rose pressed up against the wall of the boys' dorm, only feet from the bed. She smiled as she felt his lips on her neck, hands sliding up the back of her shirt. She pressed back against him, he pulled away looking at her. She grinned back at him before shoving him, gently, onto the bed before climbing on top of him. This was really going to happen. She had wanted this with him for a long time now. She swooped down and kissed him again, as he worked on getting her shirt off of her.
Scorpius stared at Rose, "I think, I think I have some vague memories about that night," he said slowly remembering the dreams he had been having.
Rose nodded slowly, "I think my memory charm wasn't the best. I felt guilty," she said not looking at Scorpius.
"I do, you know," he said softly staring at Rose. She looked up at him questioningly.
"Love you. I have since I was 12," he confessed. Rose stared at him, a smile slowly overtaking her face as Scorpius leaned in to kiss her. Pulling away after the kiss he then put his hand on her stomach.
"Hey there," he said softly, "I'm your daddy."
Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy are pleased to announce the birth of their daughter Lyra Iris Malfoy born 13, July at 11:52 am weighing approximately 4 kilograms, 60 grams and measuring .54 meters long*.
Gavin Woods closed the newspaper after reading that announcement biting his lip. He knew he shouldn't have lied to Scorpius and oblivated Rose's memory, but of course when the girl you just had sex with burst into tears and admitted she was in love with someone else, what else could be done? Of course now neither Rose nor Scorpius knew that it was possible that Gavin was the father of Rose's baby.
*To my American friends, if I did it correctly, that's about 8lbs and just over 21 inches long.
