So this is it, last chapter! I would just like to say thank you to ElphieThroppDG28, Rhiannon the Mage, wolfergirl and Hexact for reviewing my story and thank you to all my other readers!

Neville lay in bed whilst his wife Hannah flurried around him getting his medication sorted. At this moment in time he was running a very high temperature and was feeling worse for wear due to his long battle with scrofungulus. He had been growing weaker and weaker and was now wholly dependent on his wife. He hadn't been able to get out of bed for the past 6 days. Neville knew his time was near.
He had been fighting this disease for well over a year now, long enough to see two of his three grandchildren travel to Hogwarts and be sorted into Ravenclaw and Gryffindor, long enough to witness his wife's 85th birthday and their diamond anniversary. He had seen a lot in his time but there was still so much more he longed to see yet he knew that he did not have long left.
'Hannah…' he croaked
'Neville what's wrong? Are you too hot, feeling nauseous?' she questioned
'No I'm fine, it's just' he broke off due to another coughing fit
Hannah managed to prop him enabling him to breathe more easily.
'Thank you. I just feel that its time.'
'Oh Neville you know I hate it when you say that.'
'But it's true'
'Neville, listen to me. You've been saying that for the past few weeks and you're still here. You have much more fight it you'
'No Hannah, this time I know it's time. I…'
'Please, let me finish. I just wanted to say I have had the most wonderful life with you. You've made me so happy, given me two wonderful children, a beautiful family and so much more. And I love you Hannah, I just want you to always remember that.'
'Of course Neville, I love you too now sleep now dear, you're exhausted' Hannah whispered
Neville closed his eyes, exhaustion crashing down on him, and just like their very first kiss Hannah caressed his face and then pecked him on the cheek, hot tears rolling down her cheeks. In that moment Neville drifted away.
And done! Please review, even if you are reading this months or years after I have written it! :)
