We have reached the final chapter. Thank you so much for reading. I hope you have enjoyed the story. And here's a fun little fact...I found out that the name Lucius means "light". I think Luna and Lucius are just meant to be...when you combine their names you get "Moonlight".
Severus rolled on his side and propped his head up with his hand. He sighed heavily as he watched his young wife pace rapidly across the bedroom floor.
"I thought you said you were tired."
"I am." She said, tossing an irritated glance in his general direction.
"Then why don't you stop that bloody pacing and come to bed." He groaned.
"I can't. I'm worried about Luna."
Severus flopped heavily on his back and stared at the ceiling. "The only thing you need to worry about is whether she'll be able to walk once Lucius is done fucking her senseless." He muttered under his breath.
"I suppose you think that's funny." Hermione said, whirling around to glare at him.
"Actually I do." He said, rolling back on his side and holding his hand out to her. "And if you would stop pacing and come to bed dear wife, I'd be more then happy to fuck you senseless as well."
"Oh Severus." She said, flopping down on the bed next to him. "I just won't feel right until I talk to her and know she's okay."
"Well then you're going to be worried for quite a while." He sighed, reaching up to run his fingers through her hair.
"What's that supposed to mean?" Hermione demanded.
"It means that the Malfoy's are leaving first thing tomorrow for their honeymoon. They will be gone for a fortnight."
"What? Where? How do you know? Why didn't anyone tell me?"
Severus chuckled low in his throat. "Lie next to me Wife." He pulled her down and cuddled her to his chest. "Just relax and I will tell you everything. Here," he teased, drawing her hand down his stomach and wrapping it around his semi hard cock. "hold this for me."
"Oh you." But she squeezed him gently and began to run her hand up and down his shaft.
"Lucius is surprising Luna with a trip to Hawaii. He told me right before the wedding. Oh that feels good." He moaned when she squeezed the head of his cock.
"Why didn't anyone tell me?"
"Because my darling." Severus whispered, pushing her gently to her back and positioning himself between her legs. "Lucius is under the impression that you do not like him nor trust him and he was afraid you would tell Luna, thus spoiling the surprise."
"I don't trust him or like him." Hermione muttered.
Severus chucked darkly and pushed his cock into her center. "And that is why no one told you." He thrust himself slowly in and out eliciting a gasp from his young wife.
"Mmmmm?" He moaned.
"Why didn't we have a honeymoon?"
"Because I am a dreadful and horrible husband." He grunted, grasping her hips and thrusting deeply into her.
"No you're not. You're a wonderful husband." She moaned, running her hands down his back.
"Oh. Then it was because we were both teaching at the time. Now if you will kindly shut up and come. I will promise to take you wherever you'd like when the school term is over."
Severus and Hermione sat at the High Table eating a late Saturday breakfast. He rolled his eyes as Hermione picked at her food. "Starving yourself will not bring Luna back any sooner my dear. You should eat."
"I can't help it." She sighed, pushing at her eggs with her fork. "What if he's sacrificed her to a Volcano or something."
"Do you really think Lucius would risk soiling his custom made Italian loafers just to toss Luna into a Volcano? Come now, look up. Here's the mail." Severus turned his eyes to the ceiling watching as a myriad of owls delivered letters and packages throughout the Great Hall. A large tawny owl dropped a pile of correspondence in front of him. Setting aside his knife and fork, he began to shift through the mail. "Hermione." He said, extracting a postcard and handing it to her. "You can stop worrying."
Hermione snatched the card from his fingers and breathed a deep sigh of relief. Turning it over she read;
I hope this finds you well. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write, but we've been so busy. Luci and I have been staying at a private resort in Hawaii. I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful it is here. We've gone horseback riding, swimming in the ocean and even took a boat ride out into the ocean to whale watch. You should see us, we are both so tan from the sun. I'm sure you've been worried about me, but you needn't be. I am happier then I've ever been. I love you and I'll see you soon.
Yours, Mrs. Luna Malfoy
Hermione flipped over the card and smiled at the picture on the front. Lucius and Luna stood in front of a beautiful ocean, his arms were wrapped lovingly around her, their blonde hair blowing in the breeze.
"Better?" Severus asked, smiling down at her.
"I'm fine." Hermione said, taking a large bite of eggs. "I don't know what you're going on about."
Severus' cape billowed behind him as he ran down the stone corridor. Reaching the classroom door, he swept his long hair out of his face and pushed through the door.
Hermione paused in her teaching and looked at her husband's frantic expression.
"Luna is in St. Mungo's. Go. Minerva is waiting for you in her office. You can use her Floo. I'll finish your class for you."
"But…." Hermione stuttered.
"Just go." Severus said, pushing her towards the door.
Hermione stepped from the Floo into the quiet hall. Looking to the left, then to the right, she hurried to the nurses station. "I'm here to see Luna Malfoy."
"Of course." The nurse said, shuffling through some parchment. "Mrs. Malfoy is in room 315."
"Thank you so much." Hermione said, turning to walk quickly down the hallway. Pausing outside the door, she pressed her ear to it. She could hear soft murmuring coming from inside. Pushing the door open, she stepped into the darkened room. As her eyes adjusted to the dim light, she could just make out Luna's blonde head on the hospital bed's pillow.
"I was wondering when you'd arrive Mrs. Snape." Hermione jumped in surprise and spun around. Lucius Malfoy sat in the shadows of the room, the rocking chair he sat in rocked silently to and fro.
"I didn't know." She whispered. "I've only just heard. Is she alright?"
"She's fine." He whispered softly. "Just a little tired."
Hermione took a tentative step towards the rocking chair. She stared at the man in the chair for several moments before speaking. "May I?"
Lucius lifted his steel grey eyes to her, his face impassive. Glancing back down, his eyes softened. "Of course you may, Mrs. Snape." He turned the bundle in his arms to face Hermione. "Meet my daughter, Hope Uriella Malfoy."
Tears welled in Hermione's eyes as she gazed at the sleeping baby. White blonde hair covered her tiny head. "She's gorgeous."
"Of course she is." Lucius said, leaning down to press a kiss to the top of her head. "Would you like to hold her?"
Hermione reached out her hands. Blinking back tears she took the tiny girl from his arms. "Welcome to the world, Miss Hope." She whispered softly. Rocking the baby gently in her arms, she looked up and met his eyes. "Mr. Malfoy." She paused as her voice cracked with emotion. "Lucius, I owe you an apology. I have been unfair to you. You have clearly changed and you have been a wonderful husband to Luna and I just wanted to say I'm sorry for how I've acted, for everything."
Lucius gazed at the woman holding his daughter, a small smile playing at the corners of his lips. "In all fairness I am quite certain I earned any mistrust you may have had for me. I accept your apology."
"Does this mean we're all friends now?" Luna's voice called sleepily from the bed.
"Yes, my darling. We're all friends." Lucius gazed lovingly at his wife.
"Good. Then ask her."
"Ask me what." Hermione looked from Lucius to Luna.
"As I am sure you are aware, Severus is Draco's Godfather."
Hermione nodded her head.
"Well Luna and I have discussed it and we would be honored of you and Severus would agree to be Hope's Godparents as well."
Hermione gaped. "Are you sure?"
"Of course we're sure." Luna smiled.
"Then I would like nothing better." Hermione said, smiling down at the infant. "Did you hear that Hope. I'm going to be your Godmother." Handing the baby to Luna, Hermione smiled happily. "Well I'd better go tell Severus the happy news. Congratulations to both of you."
Lucius stood as Hermione left the room. Moving to the bed, he lowered himself beside Luna. Moonlight streamed through the window bathing the little family with a soft glow.
"I love you Lucius." Luna whispered.
"I love you too, Luna."
