Disclaimer: If you actually think that this belongs to me, than you're insane, cause I'm not brilliant enough to have created such impeccable characters.
A/N: To everyone who has reviewed this story, thank you so much! It means more to me than you'll ever know. I originally started this to release anger I would keep deep inside, or when I needed to get away from my life and escape everyday pressures. It wasn't until I had written a few chapters that I decided to actually try to make a plot, and even though I write first and foremost for myself, it was you guys who inspired me to keep writing, even when I felt like leaving it. So I kept at it, and just for y'all. So let me once again say thank you for supporting my writing of A Time For Everything, my first story, all grown up now! Well, enough of the sentimentality, onto the epilogue!
The flight over was long, but not boring in the slightest. Hermione, Draco, Ginny, and Deimos were all in a row together in business class. They spent the trip finalising details and going over their plans. Their id's said they were all 21, because of course, they needed to be legal age to purchase a car and a house, and they thought people might be suspicious if they were only 18. They could all pass as being that age, so they didn't feel bad about lying.
Arriving in Charlotte, they walked outside and hailed a taxi and went to the nearest car place. They didn't want to be dependent on taxis any longer than they had too, they were so expensive. They arrived at a car dealership, and began to meander through the aisles and aisles of cars.
"Oh, look at that Juliet!" Draco called to Hermione as he stood drooling in front of a Hum-V, "That's what I want!"
"I don't think so Lance, not with the twins coming soon," Hermione said coming over to stand next to Draco, "We're getting a nice, sensible mini-van."
"Aw, do we have to?" He put on a puppy dog face.
"Yes, and don't argue. Maybe in a few years after we get settled and the kids are older," Hermione said rubbing her hand over her swollen belly.
"Okay, so we're getting the Chrysler Mini-Van. What are you two getting?" Draco asked Deimos and Ginny.
"We're just going to get a Honda Accord. Nice and sensible for when the baby arrives," Ginny replied.
"Yeah, although I still want a Hum-V." Deimos grumbled.
"You too, huh? I wanted one, but Juliet said no, we're getting a nice, sensible mini-van," Draco imitated Hermione.
"Yup, that's along the lines of what Dakota said." Deimos replied as Ginny swatted him on the arm. "Sorry, sorry, let's go get the cars."
So they went to the main office and had their car orders taken down. They would be constructed with all the special features, and taken to a Carmax in South Nags Head. They couldn't purchase they cars until they had a place of residence, so going back out, they took a taxi to the nearest bus station and purchased tickets for South Nags Head.

"Wow, it is beautiful!" Hermione exclaimed as she stepped off the bus and looked around.
"Did you ever doubt me?" Draco said stepping off behind her and kissing her on the cheek as they moved away from the bus and turned around to meet Deimos and Ginny.
"All right, well according to the bus driver, there's a Realtor's just down the block, so we can walk and get that settled and then go pick up our cars, which they said would be ready in a week I guess, so that will give us time to furnish the house a bit, and we need to do that quickly." Deimos explained as he and Ginny made their way off the bus holding hands. "Now before we go to the Realtor's, do we want to buy our own houses, or do we want to share one? They have some huge houses here, so space wouldn't be a problem. I don't really care."
"Neither do I, so I guess it's up to you girls," Draco agreed.
Ginny and Hermione exchanged a look and a smile, but shook their heads.
"We've talked about this before, and as much fun as it would be, we would rather have separate houses. That was when Minerva and Albus come we don't have to worry about keeping you guys up during the night or anything, although you won't have too many peaceful nights before too long." Hermione said smiling. "And besides, we have different tastes in furniture and decorating."
"True," Ginny continued. "However, we would like houses either next to each other or across from each other if possible. In the same neighbourhood at least."
"I think we can do that, so now that that's settled, let's go." Draco said as they walked down to the Realtor's.

The four were in luck. Two houses on South Colony Drive had just gone on the market, and they were right next to each other. Both were medium sized wood houses. Draco and Hermione's had four bedrooms, two full baths, one half bath, a sun room, porch, living room, nice size kitchen, carport, and an outdoor shower. It was close to the beach also. All they had to do was cross the street behind their house and walk up the beach access road. Ginny and Deimos' house was slightly smaller. It had the same things as Draco and Hermione's house except they only had three bedrooms. Both couples were converting one of the bedrooms into a nursery. Ginny decorated her house with lots of antiques and country accents. Hermione used more modern things, but both houses were very homely and comfortable.
Later that week, only the day after they finished decorating and had gotten their cars, Hermione's water broke and she went into labour. On March 2, after several hours of having to wait, Draco was allowed in to see his wife. She was sweaty and red in the face, and her hair was a mess, but holding their babies, she couldn't have looked more beautiful.
"Come see Lance. Our children, Albus James Williams and Minerva Lea Williams," Hermione said as she looked up at him, her eyes shining.
"Wow, their perfect. And you're beautiful," he said kissing her before pulling back to look at their twins once more in awe.
Minerva and James were identical looking. Both had a pale gold fuzz on top of their heads, and were looking at him with bright blue eyes. They'd probably change later on, and darken to a blue-grey, much like Draco's.
"Do you want to hold them?" Hermione asked. At Draco's scared look she laughed. "They won't break, I promise, now hold out your arms."
Draco did as he was told and sitting on the edge of the bed, took Minerva in his left arm, and James in his right.
"Mind their heads now," Hermione cautioned as she smiled.
"I just can't believe they're so beautiful," he said, his eyes glistening with unshed tears.
"I know. Now go out there and show Ginny and Deimos their god-children. And yes you can walk with them, it won't hurt them," Hermione said as Draco stood up and went to show Deimos and Ginny.
"Hey guys, I want you to meet your god-children, Albus James and Minerva Lea." Draco said as Ginny and Deimos stood up to meet him. Ginny immediately scooped up Minerva and Deimos took Albus.
"Absolutely precious, aren't they Anthony?" Ginny said smiling.
"I'd have to agree with you Dakota, they are gorgeous," Deimos replied. "And just think, in September, that'll be us."
At that moment, Albus let out a shriek, and Minerva soon followed, causing Draco to jump and look afraid.
"What's wrong? What do I do?" He said, almost panicky.
"We take them back to your wife so they can eat. They're just hungry Lance," Ginny said as he followed her back to Hermione's room.
Hermione took the babies and began to breast feed them. Ginny and Deimos gave their congratulations once more before going back home. They'd see Hermione the next day when she'd come home.
"We are so lucky, to have the children, Anthony and Dakota, and each other, aren't we? I just can't help feel how blessed we are," Hermione said as the babies were dozing off.
"Neither can I love, neither can I," he said kissing her on the lips before climbing onto the bed next to her where they watched the babies fall asleep, safe under the protective gaze of their parents.
A/N: Okay, that's the end, and final end. I will do a sequel, but don't expect it for a while. I'm going to try and write at least some of it before I begin posting, so you can begin checking back around, October maybe? No guarantees though. Once again, thanks to all my reviewers, and I hope you've enjoyed reading this as much as I've enjoyed writing it!
