Harry potter was a simple man, really. He lived in a small muggle town, was an artist and a chef, and owned a small bakery in town. After the war, he quietly moved out of sight, where he would not be well known. After the war, he wanted a quiet, simple life. That is however, not what he got.
One morning, he awoke, not to birds, or a rooster, but the doorbell. He put on pants and an old painters shirt, and went to the door. A ministry official was standing before him.
"Can I help you?" he asked, and the officer nodded.
"You are Harry James Potter Correct?" he asked, and harry nodded, the officer moved aside to show Teddy Lupin standing behind him, looking tired, and quite upset.
"Teddy!" he exclaimed, scooping the five year old in his arms and bringing him inside. The ministry official followed.
"What's happened?" he asked, setting teddy down on the couch, where he promptly and almost instantly fell asleep.
"His grandmother passed away this morning Mr. Potter. He has no where else to go" he said sadly, and harry ran his hands through his hair.
"Does he have his things?" he asked, and the officer shook his head.
"No, he called saint mungo's saying that 'nana wouldn't wake up.' she had passed in her sleep, from old age according to the hospital." he said, and harry nodded.
"Well, thank you for letting me know, I really appreciate it." he said, shaking his hand. He left, and harry shut the door softly behind him. Harry picked up teddy and led him to his bed, where he tucked him in. Harry thought about going back to sleep himself, but after the news he had just recived, he needed to talk to someone. He went back into the living room, and started the floo, and called Hermione.
"Harry, it's seven in the morning. What in the world could you possibly want at seven in the morning?" came Ron's face through the fire.
"Andromeda passed last night. The ministry just brought me teddy, he's sleeping in my bed." he said, and Ron's eyes widened, and he called Hermione over.
"Oh harry, I'm so sorry…" she said, and he nodded.
"She passed from old age, so at least it wasn't painful? I don't… I'm a parent now you guys. I'm in control of a five year old" he said, and Hermione smiled kindly at him.
"You've taken teddy since he was a baby, and he's great with you. You two will be fine." She said, and he nodded.
"Yeah… I have to go and get his things from andy's. Do you think one of you could floo over while I go?" he asked, and Hermione nodded.
"I'll get changed and come over ok?" he asked, and he nodded. He ended the call and went to get dressed. when he came back downstairs, Hermione was waiting for him. she brought him into a big hug and kissed his cheek. He apperated to andromeda's house where he slowly packed up everything of teddy's and placed it in an expandable backpack. When he arrived back at his house, Hermione was sitting at the table with teddy, who was eating breakfast.
"Uncle harry!" he exclaimed, and rushed to hug him.
"Hey sport. You doing ok?" he asked, and teddy nodded.
"Harry, what happened to nana?" he asked, and harry sighed.
"Nana… nana was very old, you see. And when people get old, they… well, at a certain point, it's time for them to pass on. They have lived their lives, and now it's time to move on to the next great adventure" harry said, and teddy nodded.
"Will she ever come back?" he asked, and harry shook his head.
"No buddy, she won't. I'm so sorry teddy" he said, and teddy nodded.
"It's alright uncle harry… she's happy now right?" he asked and harry nodded.
"Yes teddy, she is very happy." He said, and teddy nodded, and went back to sit with Hermione. when she left, harry took teddy up to the second bedroom in his house. This was where he usually slept if he spent the weekend.
"I got all of your things from nana's house, so we can decorate your room" he said, and teddy nodded, grabbing things out of the bag and placing them where they belong. Teddy had a twin size bed with sports bedding on it. He had a toy box, which harry placed in the corner, and he helped teddy put his clothes in the closet and wardrobe.
When they finished, they went downstairs, and harry made him a sandwhich, and they watched a muggle television show that teddy loved. During the program, the doorbell rang, and harry went to answer the door. Draco Malfoy was waiting for him.
"Draco, today isn't a good day…" he said, but Draco came in anyway.
"Cousin Draco!" teddy yelled, and rushed to hug him.
"Hey mut! How are you?" he asked, and teddy smiled slightly.
"I'm ok." he said, and Draco ruffled his hair.
"I'm glad. I heard about what happened teddy. I'm so sorry about nana" he said, and teddy nodded.
"Uncle harry said that she's happy." He said, and Draco nodded.
"Yeah, I bet she is. I need to talk to harry, ok?" he asked, and teddy nodded, going back over to his tv show. Draco and harry walked into the kitchen, where harry leaned against the counter.
"What is it that you wanted to talk to me about?" he asked, and Draco pressed his lips to harry's lightly.
"This, and a few other things. Mum was deeply saddened when she heard the news about andromeda's passing." He said, and harry nodded.
"I bet, not every day you lose someone you never cared about" he said, and Draco sighed.
"Harry, my mum loved her sister. Did you know that they reconnected? That's why I know teddy so well? I went with her whenever she went to visit, which was every week." He said, and harry nodded.
"Draco…" he said, and Draco brought him in for a hug.
"Listen, we'll make it through this ok? I know how hard this must be, but… god harry, I just…" he said, and harry smirked.
"You want to move in with me" he said simply, and Draco's head shot up.
"That would be nice yeah" he said and harry grinned.
"Tell you what, let me get teddy settled first, and we'll talk about it again" he said, and he saw Draco's face fall slightly.
"I'm not saying no. I'd like more than anything for you to move in with me. I think we should talk about it with teddy. He's the one that's going to be most affected by this, and I think he deserves to have a say" he said, and Draco nodded.
"Let's talk about it next week then, after the funeral?" he asked, and harry nodded. He kissed Draco again before they went into the living room where teddy was grinning.
"You know, I can hear things. I'm not a baby" he said and Draco smirked.
"Oh? And what did you hear?" he asked.
'You and uncle harry want to move in together. But you want to make sure it's ok with me. I'd really love, more than anything for you to move in cousin Draco. I know you like harry." he said, and he blushed slightly.
"And ive heard uncle harry say your name in his sleep, so I know he likes you too. So yes, it's ok for you guys to move in together" he said, and harry grinned and ruffled his hair. His godson always knew what to say.
