3. New Beginning

Almost a year later, Fred and Hermione Weasley were happily settled into their new home. Over time they had grown to love each other. On this particular day, they had invited all of the Weasleys (and Ginny, who was now a Potter - the law stated that all witches had to be married while they were aged 20. They had never worked out why it didn't apply to wizards) as well as Hermione's parents. Hermione waited until everyone was seated around the table and then she and Fred put their arms around each other.

"Everyone?" she called nervously. Nobody heard so Fred smiled down at Hermione.

"Oi!" yelled Fred. "We're going to have a baby!"

There was an instant silence as everyone stared at them. Hermione hid behind her bushy hair. Then everyone started talking at once.


"Do you think we're doing the right thing?" Hermione asked after everyone had left.

"Yes." said Fred. "Hermione, I love you, OK? And I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't."

Hermione felt tears pricking her eyes and buried her head on Fred's shoulder. "Fred, I'm scared." She whispered, and instantly felt him put his arms around her protectively.

"Sshhh, Mione, it's OK. I won't let anything happen to you, or the baby. You know that."


Hermione realised, later, just how strong her love for Fred was. She would trust him with her life and she was glad that the baby - their baby - would be raised by him. His love was limitless and she knew he'd do anything in his power to protect her and their child. Hermione smiled.
