"I still don't understand…so you're married?" Mrs. Granger asked pacing in their living room. "You were married, then you took our memories, found out you were pregnant, your husband almost died in the war, on the same day you gave birth…and you married your professor?"
"That about sums it up, yes." Hermione nodded.
"So…Severus…was really Severus Snape, your potions professor?" Mr. Granger asked, his brow furrowed as he attempted to sort all of the new information their daughter had just dropped on their laps.
"Yes, he was here on orders from the Headmaster." Hermione smirked.
"He's much older than you." Mrs. Granger stopped pacing long enough to pick up her grandson, who had just learned to walk.
"Well that's nothing!" Mr. Granger waved his hand. Mrs. Granger rolled her eyes. "So where is this husband of yours?"
"He had to be in court today with Harry." Hermione explained.
"Court?!" Mrs. Granger exclaimed.
"It's nothing, mum. Harry needed him there." Hermione shook her head.
"How exactly is everyone…in…errr…your circle accepting this whole thing?" Mrs. Granger had to put Alan down; he was beginning to fight against her for confining him.
"Daaaadeeeeeee!" Alan squealed.
"Come here, love." Hermione held her hand out to her son who eagerly took is. She hoisted his chubby little body up onto her lap. His hair was still the same color as his fathers, only slightly curly like his mothers'.
"Well I have to admit…he is adorable." Mr. Granger smiled at his grandson.
"Some people don't understand Severus and I being together. But we love each other, and we love Alan. We'll love the next one, just as much." Hermione bit her lip.
"Next one?" Mrs. Granger asked.
"Yes, and they'll be here in about six months." Hermione kissed Alan on the top of his head before letting the squirming toddler down.
"Two grandchildren!" Mr. Granger exclaimed. "Excellent!"
"Thanks, Dad." Hermione laughed. "Well I need to get Alan home, it's almost dinner time, and Severus should be home shortly.
"You'll come back for dinner, Sunday? Bring our son-in-law with you." Mr. Granger stepped forward and kissed his daughter good-bye.
"We'll be here." Hermione replied scooping up Alan. "Come along Alan, Daddy will be home soon."
"Dadeeeeee!" Alan exclaimed clapping hands.
"So how did it go?" Severus asked as he came through the front door.
"As well as I could expect. They were confused of course." Hermione replied walking into the foyer to greet her husband. "Even more shocked when I told them I married you." She laughed.
"Indeed." Severus replied pulling her into his arms. "Did you tell them we were expecting another child?"
"I did." Hermione kissed him, pulled back and smiled.
"My Dad is rather pleased with the idea of being a grandfather again." Hermione replied.
"Yes, well I figured he would take the news well after what he said to me that night you were cross with me." Severus raised his eyebrow.
"What did he say?"
"That you had the hots for me." Severus smirked. "He also said he was happy with the idea of you and I, rather than you with Weasley."
"Severus." Hermione smacked him lightly.
"You do in fact have the hots for me, you cannot deny it witch." He pulled her to him once more and kissed her soundly.
"Yes I do." Hermione agreed.
"Daaaaadeeeeee?" Alan came around the corner and ran into his father's arms. Severus scooped him up embraced him. "Top it!"
"Top it?" Severus asked.
"He means stop it." Hermione laughed as she made her way back into the kitchen.
"Did you miss me?" Severus asked the boy.
"I miss you diss much!" Alan smiled and held his arms out as wide as he could get his tiny arms.
"That much? That's an awful lot." Severus laughed.
"Lot! Lot!" Alan clapped. "Love you Daddy." Alan kissed him on his cheek.
"I love you too, son." Severus hugged him again, smoothing his hair. Hermione walked up and took Alan from Severus and sat the boy in his high chair. Severus pulled Hermione onto his lap, and kissed her. She laughed and put her arms around his neck.
"I love you." Hermione sighed smiling.
"I love you too. If someone would have told me five years ago you and I would be married, to Hermione Granger…with a son and another child on the way I would have had them admitted to St. Mungo's. But, I've never been happier to be wrong." Severus shook his head.
"Me either." Hermione laughed as she got up from his lap and started to serve dinner.

"Alan Snape?" Severus asked as he raised his eyebrow.
"Yes, Alan Severus Snape. I can't have two Severus' running around, now can I?" Hermione laughed.
"Alan Snape. I like it." Harry interjected. They all laughed, Severus rolled his eyes.
"I love you." Hermione stood on tip toe and kissed her husband.
"I love you." Severus replied.
"Sybil are you ill?" Albus asked as the woman peered up at him, her eyes magnified about a hundred times larger than they should be. "Did you see something?"
"I had the strangest vision, headmaster." Sybil responded, "Very odd."
"Here, have a seat dear, your trembling." Minerva guided her slightly alcoholic peer to the nearest chair. Sybil eased herself down, moving her skirts and scarves from beneath her.
"Would you care to share your vision?" Albus asked as he came around and sat on the edge of his desk, leaning forward slightly, his hands on his knees to steady himself.
"It was about Severus…it was very odd…very odd." Sybil was shaking her head slowly as she repeated herself. Minerva looked at Dumbledore and rolled her eyes.
"You seem to be having a night for visions, my dear!" Albus smiled kindly. "Let us discuss your earlier vision then, whilst you decide if you want to share your most recent…event with us. You were saying that Miss Granger will be in danger at some point on her summer holiday?"
"Yes." Sybil nodded her head, pushing her glasses back up onto the bridge of her nose.
"Well, certainly we can send someone home with her Albus! We can't keep the poor child here all summer!" Minerva exclaimed pursing her lips.
"No, no, we can't do that. Yes, I will make arrangements for someone to go with her." Albus nodded his head slowly as he played with his beard, deep in thought.
"Perhaps I can talk Severus into protecting her, he won't like it but it needs to be done." Albus turned back to the two women.
"Severus will not agree to this, he can't stand her!" Minerva exclaimed. Sybil sat quiet for a moment looking at her hands that were folded in her lap. Her mind played over the vision she had just had. Severus would go, and he would marry Hermione.
"You can't send Severus." Sybil finally found her voice.
"Why not?" Minerva asked.
"That was the vision I had, if he goes…Hermione will die." Sybil looked away from them and into the fireplace.
"Well then, perhaps I can speak to Arthur and Molly…I will find a way to keep her safe. Thank you Sybil, you may go." Dumbledore walked around his desk and sat down in his chair. Sybil stood up and slowly made her way out of Dumbledore's office. She walked the long path back to her private quarters thinking to herself.
"I've tried to get him to notice me for years…"Sybil thought to herself, "I'll be damned if that ill-tempered girl will have him. That's what she gets for making a mockery of me in my own class, she doesn't deserve him. And that's what he gets, he can die alone and unloved." She smirked to herself as she made her way into her room and poured herself a sherry. She smiled widely, very proud of herself.
*DON'T KILL ME! Lol, I just wanted you to see how I was going to end it originally, but don't worry it wasn't a vision, and they did end up together! 3 hugs!*
