Ch.24 Epilogue!

Four and a half months later!

Hermione woke, not realizing that she had fallen asleep. The book that she had been reading fell to the floor, making her jump and wake. "Finally awake." Draco said from beside her on the couch. Hermione smiled, still half way asleep.

She stretched, feeling strange. When she did, she doubled over in pain. "Hermione! Are you okay?" Draco asked, coming to stand by her. "I don't know, but I think the baby is coming." Hermione said, putting her hands around her stomach protectively.

For a moment, neither one of them moved, not knowing what to do. Hermione felt another contraction hit, and knew that she really was in labor.

"Get Madam Pomfrey!" She cried, trying to make her breathing even. Draco jumped into action, rushing over to the floo. He had a quick conversation with someone Hermione couldn't see, but then was by her side again.

"McGonagall and Madam Pomfrey are on their way. Can I get you anything?" Draco asked, excitement coursing through him.

"I need to get to the bedroom." Hermione said breathlessly as another contraction hit. Draco didn't even think about it as he picked her up into his arms completely

He carried her into the bedroom, laying her on the bed, trying to help her get comfortable. Hermione smiled up at him, the excitement starting to settle in. Their baby was on his way!

At that moment, Madam Pomfrey and McGonagall came bursting through the door. McGonagall looked excited, as did Madam Pomfrey. "Okay, just try to relax Mrs. Malfoy. I am going to check you, see where you are at right now." Madam Pomfrey said with a smile.

Hermione nodded, knowing that this was going to be a long day and possibly night. She was pleased when she found that she was almost dilated to six already. She looked over at Draco, knowing that this may not take as long as she felt another contraction hit her.

"How much longer is it going to take!" Harry said from the couch. "This does take some time Harry." Ginny said with a smile. "I know, but we have been waiting for hours now." Harry said, looking out at the now dark sky.

Ginny came to sit on his lap, kissing him softly, "Don't worry, Hermione is fine. It wont be much longer now." She said softly.

Draco came down the stairs, a smile on his face that seemed to not want to go away for the rest of his life. Harry and Ginny both walked up to him, waiting with bated breath. "He is here!" He said happily. Ginny squealed, hugging him tightly. "We named him Scorpius Malfoy." Draco said happily. "Hermione and he are both doing just fine, you can go up to see them both if you like." Draco said, distractedly, already on his way back up the stairs.

Harry and Ginny both raced up the stairs, wanting to see their friend, and Scorpius. When they entered the room, Hermione lay in the bed, looking tired, but fine, holding a small bundle.

They slowly made their way over to the bed, anxious to see the new baby. "Oh you guys! He is so beautiful!" Ginny squealed, seeing Scorpius for the first time.

He had Hermione's curls, but they were light blonde, and he had his daddy's silver eyes. He had Hermione's nose, and Draco's chin. "He is perfect." Hermione said, cooing at the baby.

"Yes he is." Harry said, a soft smile on his lips. Looking at the baby, he realized for the first time, that really, all of this was worth this. They had brought another person into the world.

"Congratulations you guys." Harry said, shaking Draco's hand and kissing Hermione on the head, making her giggle.

"We want you to be his godparents, if you will." Draco said, looking from Ginny to Harry. They looked at one another for a long moment before smiling at both Hermione and Draco, "Of course! Thank you so much!" Ginny said.

After that, they spent a little more time there, then leaving, promising to return early the next day. After they said their goodbyes, leaving only Hermione, Madam Pomfrey, and Draco, Madam Pomfrey left the room, giving the new parents time to themselves and their son.

"He really is perfect." Draco mumbled, holding Scorpius close to him. "I know he is." Hermione whispered with a smile. He looked over at her, a smile on his face, "And so are you." He said, kissing her softly.

"I love you Draco." Hermione said, looking at him seriously. "I love you too." He said, kissing her again. As they looked at each other, they both realized that the past did not matter. Everything, since they were kids, up to that moment, none of it mattered. They were together now.

They had made a life together, and for that, they would always have each other. No matter what came their way, they would be able to face it together. Nothing was ever going to change that.
