Epilogue

Hermione took a deep breath. This was it, she couldn't believe it. She held the envelope in her hand, her heart racing. Unable to contain her excitement, Hermione ripped open the envelope.

Miss Granger, it is our pleasure to tell you….

Her eyes quickly scanned the article. She let out a squeal, jumping up and down.

At that moment, Blaise entered the Heads Dorm.

"Hermione?" he asked, eyeing her excited form warily.

Turning, Hermione flung her arms around him.

Blaise, still shocked, hugged her back. "Well? What is it?"

"My letter from St. Mungo's! I've been accepted into the Healer program, and because of my situation, meaning my marriage, I'll be able to complete the program fully in Romania!"

Blaise smiled. "That's wonderful! Hermione, I'm so happy you got in!"

"I know," she beamed. Today couldn't get any better. She had found out she was accepted into the program of her dreams, and she was graduating.

Hermione just couldn't believe it.


Hermione took her seat between Blaise and Harry. Harry and Hermione were now inseparable, having set aside all their problems. Ron was still being a prick, but he made an effort to be at least polite to Hermione.

Blaise and Ginny had been going steady, and Hermione knew he was going to propose any day now. Draco and Pansy were due to get married in a week, only a few days before Charlie and her's wedding.

There was a buzz of excitement in the air. Professor McGonagall took the stage.


"I did!" She cried, waving her diploma around. She ran into Charlie's arms.

He planted a kiss on her lips, holding her tightly. "I'm so proud of you," he whispered.

Hermione beamed. "And I've got even better news!"

"Oh?" Charlie raised an eyebrow. "What could possibly be better than finishing up at Hogwarts?"

"This!" she said, pulling out her letter from earlier and handing it to him.

Charlie's eyes scanned the letter. "Oh Hermione, this is wonderful!" He leant forward and planted a kiss on her lips. "I love you so much."

Hermione wrapped her arms around the red head, tugging him closer. "I love you Charlie Weasley."

"I can't believe you'd be willing to move to the Reserve with me," he said, a smile on his lips. "This is just unbelievable."

"Well, you better believe it," she said smugly. "Charlie, I can tell you miss the Reserve. You're my life now, and if you want to go North, then we'll go together." She gave his hand a tight squeeze.

"Together forever," he said, his lips hovering above hers.

"Forever and always," she replied, closing the distance between them.


"Mum, I can't do this!" Hermione cried, throwing herself onto the bed.

Jean shook her head. "Come on love, now isn't the time to get cold feet."

"It's not cold feet; my feet are perfectly warm, thank you very much."

"Ha Ha," her mother replied. She sat down on the bed next to her. "I can't believe you're getting married today."

Hermione bit her lip. "I can't believe it either." She could feel the tears welling up in her eyes. "I wish Daddy was here for this."

Jean sniffled. She wrapped her arms around Hermione, hugging her tightly. "I love you so much honey. Daddy would be so proud of you."

"I know he would," she said softly.

Ginny burst through the door, "Time to get ready!" she said excitedly. She froze when she saw the two of them hugging and crying. Slowly, she began to back out of the room. "I'll just come back…" she said awkwardly.

"Nonsense Ginny, you're more than welcome," Jean said, wiping her tears away. "It's time to Hermione get ready anyways."


Hermione looked over her appearance in the mirror. Her hair was pulled back into a loose bun, with a silver comb in her brown hair. Her wedding gown wasn't the traditional white, but a pale gold. There was a full skirt and a sweetheart neckline. She wore a small jacket that covered the scar on her arm. She sighed. "I look beautiful, thank you both."

Ginny smiled. "Mione, you're finally going to be family."

"Hey, I thought I already was family!"

Ginny smiled. "Well, now it's official." Ginny was wearing a dark blue dress, with a daisy in her hair. All the other bridesmaids were dressed like that, but with light blue dresses. She had chosen Ginny as her maid of honor, and Pansy, Luna, and Astoria. Astoria and Harry had started dating around graduation.

"I can't believe it's finally the day," Hermione said, checking over her reflection once more.

"I'm so proud of you dear," Jean said, dabbing at her eyes with a handkerchief.

"Mum, don't make me cry," Hermione said, taking a deep breath.

There was a knock on the door. "It's time," Arthur said from the doorway.

Jean kissed Hermione on the cheek, Ginny then doing the same.

Hermione looked up at her soon to be father in law. "Thanks for agreeing to walk me down the aisle."

Arthur blushed. "Hermione, we've always considered you family. It's an honor."

"Well, I appreciate it." She took his arm and he led her downstairs.

They stepped out onto the beach. It looked beautiful. Everyone was standing, waiting for her. They all looked perfect, dressed up nicely.

This wedding was everything she could have hoped it would be.


Charlie kissed Hermione's leg, inching higher with every kiss. "Charlie, stop," she said with a giggle.

"Oh, Mrs. Weasley, am I tickling you?"

She giggled. "Yes, you are, so stop it."

"Mmmm," Charlie pretended to think about it, "Nope!" he said. He pressed his lips to hers, continuing their honeymoon bliss.


"Mummy!" One of the twins cried, tugging on Hermione's arm. "Mummmy!" the other one cried.

"Come on," she said, pulling them forward. "We want to see Eleanor off to Hogwarts, don't we?"

"Yes!" the twins, Alfred and Eva, cried.

The three of them walked down the platform towards Charlie and Eleanor. It was Eleanor's first year, and their daughter was nervous.

"You'll be fine dear, don't worry," Hermione said, giving her daughter a kiss.

"I know Mum, I just-"

"You'll be fine El," Charlie said, rubbing his daughter's back. "James is going to be there as well, so you won't be alone."

Eleanor sighed. "Yeah, I guess you two are right." The train gave a hoot. She quickly hugged her brother and sister goodbye, and then her parents. "I love you all so much, and I'll write soon!"

"Oh, have fun El!" Hermione cried as her daughter jumped on the train.

Hermione felt a tear slid down her cheek.

"It'll be okay," Charlie said, wrapping his arm around Hermione's shoulder.

"I know," she replied. "Besides, we've still got these two."

Eva smiled up at her mother. Hermione scooped her into his arms while Charlie grabbed Alfred and threw him on his shoulders. The two of them grabbed hands, walking out of the train station.

Hermione had everything she could ever want from life. And she had never been happier.
