Chapter 13: Babies Arrive

The castle had grown quiet and still, the Hogwarts Express had long sent the students back home. Hermione personally missed everyone, well not Sirius. He had gone back to reclaim his home and get it cleaned up. Personally if he thought that she was going to allow her babies to come over there then he was sadly mistaken. She was not going to have him brainwash them into thinking that Professor Snape was bad. She spent her time outside, enjoying the calm and peace that would soon be shattered when she gave birth.

She had gotten a letter from Gringotts, explaining that Dumbledore had set her up an account and she had full access to half of the Brown fortune, which was a lot. Her children wouldn't have to worry about robes and stuff when it was their turn to attend. The month of June ended and July started. Hermione sent Harry a gift at the end of July for his birthday. She hoped that he got it and that his Aunt and Uncle hadn't thrown it away. Hedwig had arrived at the beginning of August with a letter from Harry.

She opened it and read:


Sirius got me away from the Dursley's but he's acting like a stupid jerk. He says that you're wrong in making Snape godfather number three. Who died and made him king? Anyway, I hope that you're having a good summer and I can't wait to see you raising her hand in class, annoying the heck out of the others. Oh I heard that there's a Triwizard Tournament coming. Invite Snape to the Yule Ball just to annoy Sirius. Oh haven't heard from Remus yet, I think he's hiding.


"Oh when I'm done with him he'll wish he had stayed away," Hermione vowed.

A couple of days later Hermione entered the Hospital Wing, Snape right next to her, so that she could have her check-up. Even though the man hadn't been nice to her while she was in his class it was nice to have someone with her.

"Okay, let's see how you're doing and then I'm going to be leaving," Madam Pomfrey said.

"What do you mean your going to be leaving?" Snape demanded.

"It's only going to be for a week," she said, "We all know that she's not due for another two weeks so she'll be fine."

Snape muttered something that Hermione had a good idea wasn't a nice thing to say. Hermione was helped onto a bed and then examined.

"Do you know that I heard that babies come when they want to, not when you think they should," Hermione told her.

"Who told you that nonsense?" Madam Pomfrey asked.

"It's common knowledge, you damn woman," Snape snapped.

"Now, Professor, don't use foul language around my Princess and Prince's," Hermione scolded.

Snape glared at her.

Madam Pomfrey did a short examination, which told Hermione that she was fine.

"I'll be back well before their born," she said, "Nothing is going to happen."

Hermione had a bad feeling that she was wrong.

Of course, much to Hermione's amusement, Snape wasn't taking any chances. He stocked up on everything while those that lived in the castle left to visit love ones, or in the case of Albus Dumbledore, being yelled at by his brother. Still no Remus coming around and that made Hermione mad, so mad that she decided that she was going to name her children and none of her son's would have Remus name in it. No one messed with a Granger and got away with it.

A few days after Madam Pomfrey left Hermione woke up to fluid between her legs and her body racked with pain. Hermione screamed in pain and screamed "SEVERUS, I'M IN LABOR!" Those words brought one very tired looking, but alert, Potions Master running into the room. Suddenly she was glad that Dumbledore had decided to have her down in the dungeons.

"I told her this would happen," he said.

"Get Madam Pomfrey…now," Hermione ordered.

He left but then came back a couple of minutes later, telling her that she wasn't answering the Floo. Hermione screamed and knew that he was the only one that could deliver her babies.

If anyone told her that labor would be this bad she would have laughed at them but it hurt, really, really, badly. Snape changed into something that didn't make him look like a dungeon bat and ordered her to push. He had given her something for the pain but even with it, the whole thing still hurt and made her say words that she would have never said in her life.


Several hours later, and many 'push, Hermione, push' the screams filled the room as the first baby was delivered.

"It's the girl," Snape told her.

Hermione gasped for air, a smile on her face. And then the pain started again.

"The rest should be easy," he said.

"Easy for you to say, you're not delivering them," Hermione snarled and he told her to push again.

Ten minutes later all three of them were cleaned up and wrapped up. Hermione was being given something that would dull the pain and allow her to recover.

"You did great," Snape told her.

"Thanks but I'm never doing this again," Hermione told him, "Never, ever, doing this again."

"Want to hold one?" Snape asked.

Hermione nodded and the little girl was brought over. Hermione held her and smiled. Life was so sweet right now.

It took Hermione a week to recover from delivery and another couple of days before she could get out of bed without any help. A Healer had come to check on them and said that they were healthy.

"Glad to hear that," Hermione said.

"So what are their names?" the Healer asked.

"The girl was born first," Hermione said, and then looked at Snape, "What's your mum's name?"

"She's dead!" he stated.

"Then what was her name?" Hermione corrected

"Eileen," Snape answered.

"Then I'll name her Selene Eileen Granger," Hermione said. "Sound good to you?"

"Why are you asking me?" Snape asked.

"Because you helped me deliver them," Hermione answered.

"Sounds okay to me," Snape said.

She looked at the Healer and said, "That is the highest compliment that I'll ever get out of that man. It means that it's perfect."

The Healer wrote it down and then Hermione said, "The middle one will be William Alexander Granger and the youngest will be Romulus Severus Granger."

"What, you're naming the youngest after me," Snape said.

"Yes, and get over it," Hermione told him, "Honestly, that man acts like someone has rained on his parade."

The Healer laughed and wrote down the names.

If Hermione thought that she was going to get any sleep she was wrong. The babies woke her up at all hours of the night but thankfully one of the house elves was taking over and she was able to at least get some sleep. Hagrid as well as McGonagall, Dumbledore, and to her complete horror, Sirius, came to visit on the same day that Madam Pomfrey returned to work, upset that she hadn't been there.

"And the youngest wouldn't of been stuck with that git of a middle name," she said.

"Don't make fun of my baby's name," Hermione said.

"Oh they look so sweet," Hagrid said.

"They look like hairless monkeys," Sirius said.

"I bet you looked just like that when you were born," McGonagall said.

"I don't think so, I've always been good looking," he said. "Which one has the git for a middle name?"

Hermione chased him down the corridor with a ball bat.

"This is actually the most fun that I've had all week," Snape said.

Hermione wrote to the Weasley's, telling them that she had given birth. The next morning the nursery was filled with red heads and thankfully not Sirius. Harry was there, giving Romulus a pet snake.

"That boy doesn't need anymore toys," Mrs. Weasley said.

"I'm the godfather, I'm spoiling," Harry told her, which made Mrs. Weasley roll her eyes.

One night, Hermione woke up and went to the bathroom. When she came out she saw Snape holding Selene, a snuff doe floating over them.

"I see that someone has his favorite," Hermione told him.

"I don't like her," Snape told her.

Hermione grinned and said, "There's nothing wrong with loving someone. I just hope that they all grow up to realize what wonderful people they have."

"I'm sure this little princess will be reminded all the time," Snape told her.

Hermione smiled and said, "Oh I'm sure that you'll remind her."

"You better believe it," Snape said, "So when is Dumbledore doing the ceremony?"

"Tomorrow," Hermione answered.

"Well then you need to get some sleep," Snape told her.

Hermione nodded and headed to bed.

The next day Dumbledore had Madam Bones, Fudge, and several others there. No Remus, which Hermione wasn't surprised. All the staff was there as well as the Weasley's and Harry. Ginny was making faces at them.

"Members of the Ministry of Magic, Hogwarts staff, and selected guests," Dumbledore said to everyone, "Today we bring three new members of the Wizarding world into our mists. The book, Minerva."

The book magically appeared and Fudge looked at it.

"The first born's name is Selene Eileen Granger, the middle is William Alexander Granger, and the youngest is Romulus Severus Granger," Fudge called out, "Their names are in the book and thus they shall be allowed at Hogwarts free of charge as part of the right of all children born with magical abilities to strengthen and grow them into a set of skills."

Everyone cheered and Hermione grinned.

"Every adult witch or wizard, raise your wands," Fudge said and Hermione watched as everyone did just that. "Say after me. We, members of the Wizarding World, place a tracking spell on these three until they are fully qualified wizards and a witch. Let nothing remove this spell and let us cast our own to protect them when they can't do it themselves."

Everyone repeated it and a band appeared around their arms.

"Great, they can't hex me," Sirius said.

Selene giggled and there was a pop and Sirius disappeared to be replaced by a chair.

"Oh dear," McGonagall said.

She changed the chair back to a man, Sirius glaring at the bundle of pink flesh.

"Now let's have some fun," Dumbledore said, closing the book.

Everyone cheered.

Later that night, Hermione looked down at the three babies that had been given to her due to Lavender Brown's short circuit thinking. Even after all that had happened she wouldn't give them up for the world. And as she looked out the window she knew, no matter what, they would be a great witch and wizards.
