5. Credes Mihi?


Hermione had only a few minutes in which to finish getting herself ready.

She made sure that her usually roughish curls were pinned into place neatly. She checked that her make-up was in place, simultaneously spritz-ing some perfume onto her neck.

Deeming herself acceptable, she walked out of the bathroom, careful not to trip in her new silver shoes.

Sirius had promised to take her out for dinner. The location was a surprise, but he had told her to wear something fancy.

She heard a voice call out to her from outside the flat.

Hermione opened the door, walked down the flights of stairs to the street level. She carefully watched where she was placing her feet, and moved out onto the street.

She was greeted by a pathway that snaked up a good portion of Diagon Alley. It was made entirely out of pink rose petals. On either side of the path there were hundreds of little flickering tea lights that cast a warm glow across the street. At the very end of this pathway was Sirius. He was down on one knee, waiting for Hermione to arrive.

Hermione felt her jaw drop open in shock, but she quickly shut it again when Sirius beckoned her forward.

When she reached him, she still felt stupid with shock, but she was aware enough to know what he was saying to her.

"Hermione Jean Potter, I have loved you from the first moment that I laid my eyes on you. Would you do me the tremendous honour of becoming my wife?"

Although she was still relatively stupefied, Hermione let out a squeaky 'yes', before wrapping her arms around Sirius, and pulling him up from the ground.

'Yes, of course I will marry you!" she gushed.

He pulled her into a searing kiss, only to break it off abruptly. He pulled her left hand towards him, and placed a diamond ring with a platinum band on her finger.

"I love you," he whispered.

"I love you, too," whispered Hermione.

They stood, swaying in the dim light for a few minutes before Sirius suddenly spoke again.

"Do you trust me?"

Hermione trusted Sirius, but not the mischievous glint in his eye.

"I guess," she said, a little uncertainly.

"Good," said Sirius with a massive grin lighting up his face, "hold on!"

Hermione felt the crushing darkness envelop her, and together they travelled to their secret destination.

When the darkness ceased, and the couple landed they were greeted almost immediately, by the roar of a small crowd.

"SURPRISE!" they yelled.

Hermione looked around at the familiar faces, that she knew to be all of their friends and family.

"Happy Engagement Party!" was all that Sirius was able to say, before dozens of well-wishers stepped forward to give their congratulations.
