Chapter five

When Draco woke up the next morning, harry was still asleep. He quietly got up, and took a quick shower. His hand ran over his stomach, and felt the tiniest baby bump, and he smiled. although three children were enough, he couldn't wait for the new addition to their family.

When he got out of the shower, harry had already gotten dressed.

"I want to show you something" he said, as Draco got dressed.

"Ok" Draco said, with a smile. Harry took his hand and they dissaperated. They apperated in front of Madame malkins.

"Why are we here?" Draco asked, and harry smiled.

"Do you not remember this place?" he asked, and Draco nodded.

"I went here to get my robes for school." He said, and harry smiled.

"This is where we first met" he said, and Draco grinned.

"I remember that! You had scruffier hair back then" he said, and harry stuck his tounge out at his husband.

"I quite miss it actually" harry said, and Draco kissed his cheek.

"Come on, next place" harry said, and they took hands and dissaperated. They appeared at the enterance of Hogwarts. Harry had secretly contacted McGonagall to let them into the grounds. He took Draco to the lake.

"Do you remember the tri wizard tournament?" he asked, and Draco nodded.

"I wish I didn't, but I do. Why?" he asked, and harry smiled.

"To be honest with you, I was hoping I would see you at the bottom of the lake instead of Ron. Of course, I'd really miss Ron, but I figured I'd miss you more." He said shyly. Draco grinned. He kissed harry's blushing cheek and they dissaperated into London, in front of their old apartment.

"When we first moved in together. You asked me over breakfast, because you were so tired of watching me leave and go home." Draco said, and harry nodded.

"And what did you say?" harry asked, and Draco stuck out his tongue.

"I asked you if you were crazy, and if you were sure you wanted to live with someone as mental as me" he said, bumping his shoulder against harry's. harry wrapped his arm around Draco's shoulder.

"And I said, you may be mental, but I'm crazy for you" harry said, and Draco laughed.

"Cheesyist line ever." He laughed. They dissaperated again to Godrics hollow. This place was sad, and Draco could feel harry becoming sad.

"This was where I first met your parents" Draco whispered, walking with harry.

"I remember, when you first took me here, you talked to them, like they could hear you. You introduced me to them. Told them that we were going to be married. Can I tell you something harry?" he asked, and harry nodded.

"When you told them that, I felt an over whelming feeling of happiness. I couldn't explain it at the time, but I did some research" Draco said, and harry chuckled.

"Your turning into Hermione, you are. Continue" he said, as Draco rolled his eyes.

"It's said that ghosts, who have yet to pass on can give you positive or negative feelings. I think your mum was giving me a hug." He whispered, and harry smiled at him.

"I get that feeling when I come here as well. I just sit, and theres an over welming feeling of happiness. Like their comforting me or something. It's nice, but it's also sad." He said, and Draco rubbed his back.

"It's alright love" he said. they stayed for a moment or two longer and harry took him into Godrics hollow. He had not been back here since the war ended. He took Draco upstairs, Draco squeezing his hand tightly as they made their way into harry's bedroom. The walls were white, the whole where naginni had attacked him was still there. It looked exactly the same as when his parents died.

"Harry…" Draco said, as he looked around the room. Harry's toys hadn't been touched. The room still looked perfect.

"Are you alright?" Draco asked him, touching his arm.

"I'm fine. I'm… ok. It's nice isn't it?" he asked, and Draco nodded.

"Very. Would you like some time to be alone?" Draco asked, and harry shook his head.

"No one has fixed it up?" Draco asked and harry looked around the room, smiling very slightly.

"It's kept like this, as a memorial to my parents. As a reminder of voldemort's first downfall. It's here so I can remember. Fixing it would be a disgrace to their memory" harry said softly, and Draco felt tears coming into his eyes.

"I'm sorry… I didn't know…" Draco said, but harry kissed his forehead.

"It's alright love. I know." he said, pulling him into a hug.

"Harry, you're so loved, so loved. Harry, momma loves you. Daddy loves you. Harry, be save. Be strong…" harry whispered, and Draco hugged him harder.

"Is that what…" Draco whispered, and harry nodded.

"That's what my mum said to me before she died." Harry whispered, tears falling onto his cheeks. Draco took his hand and dissaperated to Malfoy manor.

"What are we doing here?" harry asked, wiping his eyes.

"Now it's my turn to show you something. This was the scariest day of my life" he said, and harry smiled threw his tears.

"When I saved you from lord Voldemort, and when I came out to my parents. Not the same time of course, but at the same place." Draco said, and harry nodded.

"I remember you freaking out when you came home…" harry said


"Harry!" Draco screamed, running into the house. He and harry had been dating for over three years now, and they had just recently got engaged.

"Yes love?" he asked, and Draco looked terrified.

"Baby, what's wrong?" harry said, pulling him into a hug. Harry always seemed to do this whenever Draco was upset. It comforted him, since he never got much love as a child.

"My parents… they want me to come over for dinner… I told them I would bring someone…" he said, and ahrry's eyes widened.

"Please tell me you're kidding…" he whispered and Draco shook his head.

"Ok. We can do this Draco. I defeated Voldemort… you work with cursed artifacts." He said. Draco nodded and then shook his head.

"Maybe I should just go alone…" he said, but harry grabbed his shoulders.

"No. We've been together for three years. It's time" he said, and Draco nodded. They went into their bedroom to get dressed.

Draco had mentioned about a year ago that he had been seeing someone for quite some time, but he had refused to tell her. But now that they were engaged to be married, he had no other choice. He had to tell them.

Once they were dressed, they took hands and apperated to Malfoy manor. Draco was shaking like a leaf. Harry, calm and cool on the outside, but slightly terrified on the inside. When the knocked on the door, Narcissa's face was bright until she saw harry.

"Mother, I'm sure you know Harry" he said, pulling him inside.

"Yes. Draco, may I have a word?" she asked, trying to be as polite as she possibly could. He nodded, squeezing harry's hand and letting go as he followed his mother into the drawing room. Harry could hear everything they were saying.

"What is the meaning of this! you said you were bringing someone! Why is he here?" she snarled.

"Mum, he's who I'm bringing." He said, and she snuffed. Draco left his mother, and went back over to harry.

"It's ok" harry said, and Draco nodded. Things however, were about to get a lot worse.

"Potter! What are you doing with my son?" Lucius yelled, coming down the stairs.

"Father i…" Draco began but he wasn't able to finish his sentence. Lucius had slapped him across the face, and Draco hit the wall, and falling to the floor. Harry reacted in milliseconds. He grabbed Lucius by the neck and pinned him against the wall.

"Don't you ever, EVER, hit my fiancé again, or so help me, I will kill you" harry snarled. He let him go, and helped Draco up off the floor. He grabbed his face in his hands, and looked into his eyes.

"Baby, are you alright?" harry asked, and Draco nodded, trying not to cry. He wrapped his arms around Harry's neck for a hug.

"Baby, it's alright, I've got you" he said, rubbing Draco's back. Harry heard Narcissa sob, and leave the room. Harry took Draco's hand, and followed her.

"Narcissa wait… I'm so sorry, this probably wasn't what you were expecting… but Draco and I love each other. We'll take our leave now." harry said, and Draco kissed his mothers cheek.

"I love you mum" he whispered, and she hugged him, and harry.

"I'm so sorry…" she said, and they apperated. They arrived at their favorite pizzeria, and got themselves a table.

"Well, that didn't go as planned" Draco said, wiping his eyes. Harry chuckled.

"Understatement of the year." Harry said, and he made Draco smile.

"Thank you for standing up for me." Draco said, and harry took his hand.

"You are the love of my life. That's my job" harry said, and Draco grinned.

"Always have to play the hero" he said. They ordered pizza and ate together, just talking. Once they left, harry apperated to a grave yard.

"Harry, why are we here?" Draco asked quietly.

"I want you to meet someone" he said, and Draco took his hand and followed him. they walked past rows of tombstones of people that had died.

"Dray, I'd like you to meet my mum and dad" he said, standing in front of a big headstone. Draco looked at it, and back to harry.

"Would you like me to introduce you?" harry asked, and Draco nodded silently.

"Hi mum, dad. I haven't been here in a while, and I'm sorry. I want you to meet someone. I also need to tell you something. I'm… gay" he said, and Draco chuckled. The leaves russled on the trees, and harry continued.

"This is my fiancé, Draco Malfoy." The trees russled again. Harry smiled. Draco felt a warm presence come over him. He felt happy, safe, and secure. He smiled. He felt as if lily herself was hugging him. Even from beyond the grave, she had the ability to love.


"Draco!" he heard his mother call from the house. She was waving at them.

"Hi mum!" he said, running to greet her. He hugged her tightly and kissed her cheek. She invited them both inside for tea.

After James was born, everything changed. Lucius, had a heart attack in the middle of the night, and died in his sleep. Although Narcissa loved him, she was glad to finally love her son the way she was meant to. She was the most amazing grandmother, and she occasionally watched them if harry had to go overseas for quidditch games.

"How are you? I haven't seen either of you in ages!" she said, sitting down in the drawing room. It was true, they had been busy these last few months.

"Good. Were on our second honeymoon" harry said, and Narcissa smiled.

"You two deserve it. How are the kids?" she asked.

"Good. We actually have some good news" Draco said, grinning.

"Are you…" she said, and Draco nodded.

"Oh! That's wonderful honey!" she said, hugging her son. They sat and had tea and then left, with hugs. They apperated back to their hotel room, where they had room service, and went to sleep.
