Chapter 46

The wedding day had finally arrived. The second Saturday in May, to always remind them where it had all started. They had chosen to be married in one of the continents most beautiful botanical gardens. They had toured the ceremony room and the reception hall yesterday and it could only be described as breathtaking. The room for the ceremony was a huge dome shaped room that was completely glass. Huge displays of flower arrangements lined the glass walls and the wooden archway was completely draped in all white flowers. The aisle was lined with white petals from various flowers as well. White wooden chairs lined each side of the aisle, with large grey bows on the backs of each chair.

The reception hall was nothing short of grand. They needed a huge venue since there were to be so many people in attendance. Sheer white fabrics lined the ceiling with large chandeliers engrossed with flowers hung from between the pleats of fabric. Tall flower arrangements lined the walls and each table was set with a white table cloth and blue-silver napkins. Bright white plates and crystal goblets filled each table, and the chairs had the same grey ribbons on them. The centerpieces where simple crystal vases containing pink roses, representing June for Draco's birth month, and purple asters, representing September for Hermione.

So much had changed following the engagement announcement. It seemed practically overnight that Pansy's shops skyrocketed with business. Because of the extra attention and numerous shots Laura had provided of Hermione and Ginny wedding dress shopping Pansy was able to open her third shop in Italy, allowing her to be much closer to Charlie. They purchased a large warehouse space similar to the one in Pairs, with a full flat above it. All of the girls made a special trip to Italy and stayed at Blaise and Luna's vacation home for the grand opening of Pansy's shop.

Astoria and Ron had moved in together, with Astoria selling her shop to Draco and started her own wedding planning business, entering into a partnership with Pansy. They threw so much business at Laura to photograph their clients weddings that the woman was booking for two years out. Blaise, Theo and Draco had all invested in their new business venture. Ron and Harry quickly escalated to the best aurors in the department, solidifying two promotions each. Each of them were now head aurors and ran the entire division, making them the highest ranking aurors in the department right under the head of magical law enforcement. If they chose to they still went on missions, but the new positions allotted for a lot more time home.

Neville had moved Theo into his cottage at Hogwarts, where Mcgonagall and Percy had been able to set up a secure floo so Theo could head back and forth to the Ministry. They had a small ceremony where they exchanged rings and became married in every way that mattered, even though neither chose to change their name. Hermione and Theo still stayed the night with each other at his flat occasionally when Neville was busy at Hogwarts, or Draco was on a mission with the aurors.

Daphne and George had several conversations about getting married, but George just didn't know if he could have a wedding where Fred wasn't his best man. They married at the Ministry like Draco and Hermione did, with no other guests in attendance. They still lived in their flat above George's shop, and truly couldn't be happier.

Narcissa had moved out of the Manor, and into a smaller country cottage that was much closer to Draco and Hermione's. The Manor sat empty, neither Narcissa or Draco knowing when they would go back, although Hermione surprisingly had no problems with living there once they decided to have children. Their demons were behind them, and she knew that she and Draco could overcome anything. She knew that when they did decide to move back into the Manor, Narcissa would come and live with them, and Hermione couldn't imagine a better situation. It meant that any children they decided to have would be surrounded by even more love. They would put love back into those cold walls, she had no doubt.

Hermione and Draco had met her parents for morning coffee nearly every Saturday, and stayed most of the morning. Jean and Narcissa had become quite close due to the wedding preparations, and often found themselves shopping and dining together. Narcissa, much like Draco, spent the Malfoy fortune any way she saw fit, especially if she thought it would infuriate Lucius.

"What are you thinking about, dear?" Hermione's mother asked her softly.

"Hmm? Oh, just... everything that's happened recently. How much things have changed." Hermione shook her head to clear her thoughts and gazed at herself in her wedding dress.

Pansy had worked miracles on the dress. Narcissa, Hermione and Jean all had an opinion on what the perfect dress was for her, and Pansy had really outdone herself. It was bright white and vintage lace, with a sweetheart neckline that had small sleeves fall just off her shoulders. The dress had a detachable six foot train that she would wear for the ceremony, then remove for the reception. Her veil cascaded down her back and matched the length of the train. Her hair was done in a neat chignon and had a few tendrils framing her face. She wore a small comb that was embellished in diamonds and emeralds, her wedding gift from Draco. Her heels seemed to glow to match the brightness of her dress.

For her something old she had wrapped her grandfathers embroidered handkerchief around her bouquet of pink roses and asters. Her something borrowed was the opal necklace that her mother wore on her wedding day, to match the engagement ring. And her something blue were a pair of sapphire studded earrings and a matching bracelet from Narcissa.

"Are you nervous?"

"I'm already married, mom." Hermione said with a smile.

"I know that, but this is a big day. One of the most important days of your life."

Hermione took a deep breath. "I'm ready."

"Hermione, I just wanted you to know that I'm so proud of you. Of everything you've done."

Hermione turned to face her, tears threatening her eyes.

"You've grown so much, and I couldn't be any happier for you. The way you've overcome so many things, you're such a fighter. I know the man Draco used to be, and you've changed him, dear. He loves you fiercely. And I'm just so proud of the way you have truly changed the world. I love you, sweetheart."

"I love you too, mom." Hermione sniffed to keep the tears at bay.

"Oh dear, don't cry." Jean said, fanning her face making Hermione giggle nervously.

"Are we almost ready? It's nearly time." Narcissa said as she entered the room. "Oh my child, you look beautiful."

"Thank you, Narcissa. How is he?"

To Hermione's surprise, Narcissa actually snorted. "He's terribly nervous. He says you haven't answered him all day."

"I haven't, Pansy says it would add to the anticipation."

"Well he's about ready to storm in here and drag you down the aisle if we don't start." Narcissa laughed out.

With a nod Hermione and Jean left the room to follow Narcissa down to where her father and her bridesmaids were waiting.

"Hello, daddy." Hermione breathed out, making her father turn.

The look on the man's face was one that Hermione would never forget.

"Hermione, Oh angel, you look radiant. So beautiful." He whispered, trying to control his emotions.

"Thank you." She set her hand in the crook of his elbow and waited for everything to begin.

The bridesmaids wore simple blue-grey off the shoulder, floor length chiffon dresses with a draped neckline. Everyone was giddy with the ceremony starting in just a few minutes. Sami, Daphne, Astoria, Fleur, Pansy, Luna, and Ginny were all part of the wedding party. Soft music began to play and Hermione saw the groomsmen come over to walk their partners down the aisle. Theo, Neville, Blaise, George, Bill, Charlie, Taylor, Ron, and Harry had all been made groomsmen.


She turned to see Theo staring at her, slack jawed with amazement.

"Oh Love, you look beautiful." He came up to kiss her cheek.

"Thanks, Theo. I'm getting a little nervous."

"You should see him." Theo smiled. "He's a wreck."

"Okay! It's time!" Astoria said waving her hands. One by one she lined up the order in which they were walking, then took her place beside Ron.

She watched as her bridal party began to walk down the aisle, she and her father stood off to the side, to ensure that Draco couldn't see her until it was time. Theo had escorted Narcissa down the aisle first, then Harry walked Jean down the aisle, both coming back to walk their partners down as well. When the music changed she took a deep breath. It was time.

Draco couldn't take much more of this. He hadn't spoke to Hermione since last night, and he was more than pissed off she wasn't answering through their bond. Damn Pansy and her meddling. She had even insisted they stay in separate suites at their hotel! It was outrageous!

"Calm down, I can hear your brooding from here." Harry said to him, handing him a glass of firewhiskey.

"You just wait." Draco said as he slammed the contents of his glass. "Yours is coming next week, you'll see."

Harry just chuckled. "Somehow I think I'll be handling it slightly better than this."

Draco set his empty glass down and wiped his sweaty hands on his pants. He wore a grey suit with a white dress shirt, vest and tie. His gift from Hermione, a gold and ruby tie clip and matching cuff links competed his attire. The groomsmen wore the same colored suits, but with grey vests and matching ties to go with the bridesmaids dresses.

"If you wrinkle your suit anymore than you already have Pansy will have your ass." Charlie said to him.

"Pansy has been nothing but a thorn in my side since this whole thing started! I mean really, who does she think she is? Telling my wife that we shouldn't even speak to each other!"

"Hey, Mate. I know it's rough now, but it's worth it. It is so worth it." Blaise said from beside him.

Draco took a deep breath to try and calm his nerves. He hadn't the slightest idea why he was so nervous. He was already married to her, she was already his. They were just proving it to the world.

"Okay! Here we go!" Astoria nearly shouted as she burst into the room.

Draco took several more deep breaths as she led them down the hall to where they were supposed to wait.

"Draco, you have to go through this door. Stand up front where the Minister is, the rest of you follow me." She said with a wave of her hand.

"Won't be long now, relax." Theo said to him as he clasped his best friends shoulder.

"Right." All Draco could do was nod.

He pushed open the door and walked over to the Minister like he was told to.

"Draco." Kingsley greeted.

"Sir." He responded automatically.

"How are you fairing?"

"Fucking anxious." His eyes got wide as he realized what he said. "I apologize." He said quickly.

Kingsley chuckled at him. "No need, my boy." With a nod towards the other door at the end of the hall he whispered to Draco. "It's time."

Draco turned to see that the procession had started. He watched as his mother was led down the aisle by Theo, then Harry with Jean. He wondered if they had practically wore the same dress on purpose. His mother wore a silver boat necked style dress with long sleeves that had a slight mermaid silhouette and fell just passed her knees, while Jean wore the exact same dress in a pale grey blue with three-quarter sleeves and fell just above her knees. Both dresses were sequined from top to bottom, making them shimmer in the soft light of the room.

He then watched as Sami was escorted by Taylor, then Fleur and Bill, Daphne and George, Pansy and Charlie, Astoria and Ron, Luna and Blaise, Neville and Theo, then finally Harry and Ginny. He let himself smile when the music changed to signal the bride finally making her walk down the aisle. It was time.

The moment she came into view he felt like his heart stopped. His breathing hitched and the world stopped spinning. She was simply breathtaking. From head to toe, he couldn't have imaged anything close to way she looked right now. And she was his. His eyes got watery as emotions flooded through him.

Words can't describe how beautiful you are. I love you.

Draco's words made her smile. She locked eyes with him and knew that he knew she felt exactly the same way. The man standing at the alter was completely hers. The sexiest man in the world belonged to her.

She glanced around the room at the hundreds of people that showed up for the wedding. She let out a shaky breath.

"There's so many people here." She whispered to her father. "I don't even know three-quarters of them."

Her father just patted her hand. "All of that doesn't matter, sweetheart. All you need to worry about is that man up there, and boy does he look nervous."

Hermione tried to stifle her giggle. "I love you, Dad."

"I love you, my beautiful girl."

The walk up the aisle seemed to take forever, but when Hermione finally reached the end all Draco could think about was taking her into his arms. He had to keep reminding himself that he needed to wait until the ceremony began before he could even touch her.

"I love you." He whispered once she was close enough.

"I love you." She said softly with a smile.

They had chosen a muggle ceremony, since some of Hermione's family and their friends had came. Which was perfectly fine with Draco, they were already married, already bonded by magic. The ceremony was purely for her benefit, and he would give her whatever she wanted.

"Welcome family and friends." Kingsley began. "We have gathered here today to celebrate the joining in marriage of Draco and Hermione. You all have come here to witness this formal commitment they will make with one another, to offer their love and support of this union, and to allow Draco and Hermione to start their marriage surrounded by the people that are most important to them. The devoted couple before you thanks your for your attendance, and now asks you for your blessings, encouragement, and lifelong support in their decision to be married."

He addressed the couple standing before him. "Draco and Hermione. Marriage is the promise between two people to love each other, to trust each other, to honor one another in that togetherness, and who wish to spend the rest of their lives together. It enables two separate souls to share desires, joys and sorrows, dreams and memories. To help each other through all uncertainties in life."

"A strong marriage also nurtures each of you as separate individuals and allows you to maintain your own unique identity, and grow in your own way, together, throughout the years ahead. It is a safe haven for you both to become your very best selves. You are adding to your life not only affection for each other, but also the companionship and blessing of a deep trust. You are agreeing to share strength, responsibility and love. Trust in your hearts that you want only the best for each other. To stay dedicated and open to one another, to learn and grow, even when it is difficult to do so."

"Draco, please repeat after me."

"I, Draco, take you, Hermione, to be my wife. To love you as you are. From this day forward, I vow to be grateful for our love, to be generous with my time, my energy and my affection. To be patient with you and myself, to fill our life with laughter and our home with pleasure, to inspire you and to help you grow, and to love you completely."

Draco drew a shaky breath. "These things I pledge to you."

"Hermione, please repeat these words after me." Kingsley said turning to her.

"I, Hermione, take you, Draco, to be my husband. To love you as you are. From this day forward, I vow to be grateful for our love, to be generous with my time, my energy and my affection. To be patient with you and myself, to fill our life with laughter and our home with pleasure, to inspire you and to help you grow, and to love you completely. These things I pledge to you."

Hermione barely got her vows out before the tears were running down her face. Without thinking, Draco reached over and wiped the tears from her cheeks, giving her a reassuring smile.

"The rings please."

Theo came up from his spot next to Draco and silently handed Kingsley the wedding bands.

"Your wedding is a symbol of your promise to one another. The ring, an unbroken never ending circle, is a symbol of committed, unending love." He gave Hermione's ring to Draco and Draco's ring to Hermione.

"Draco, do you take Hermione to be your wife?"

"I do." He answered confidently, fitting the two wedding bands around her engagement ring and sliding it on her finger.

"And do you Hermione, take Draco to be your husband?"

"I do." She had meant to sound more confident than what came out, but she was so giddy with excitement it sounded more like a laugh, which made Draco smile.

He stared at his hand for a moment, the weight of the ring on his finger making him feel complete. He felt whole. They laced their fingers together and as soon as the rings touched he felt like their magic was singing, that the love that these two rings represented flowed through him and into her. That the long ago ancestors that started it all had somehow bottled up all of their devotion and love to each other inside these rings. He glanced up at her surprised face and knew she felt it, too.

"By the power of your love and commitment to each other, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Draco, you may now kiss your bride." Kingsley boomed.

Without warning, Draco smashed his lips against Hermione's. There was no room for subtlety on this day. He wanted her, so desperately, and he didn't give a damn who witnessed it. He heard cheers and clapping, and the familiar sound of a camera nearby, but in this moment, his entire world was Hermione.

Hermione threw her arms around Draco's neck, loving the feel of his lips finally against hers. When they had finally pulled away from each other they had joined hands and faced the crowd.

"May I introduce, for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Draco and Hermione Malfoy!"

The entire room of people stood and rejoiced as Draco and Hermione ran down the aisle, back towards the receiving room. Once there they both laughed with nervous excitement and kissed again.

"I love you." Draco said in a rush as soon as their lips parted. "I love you so much."

"I love you, Draco." She whispered to him, trying not to cry.

Their moment was immediately interrupted by the rest of their wedding party and Laura, who was frantically snapping photos. Astoria and Pansy had told them they were needed for pictures, and dragged them all around the gardens for different shots. An entire hour went by of constant pictures and poses before Draco and Hermione had a minute to themselves.

"If I have to stand for another bloody picture I think I'll snap." Draco grumbled.

"Oh, stop. It's all worth it later, when we can look at those pictures and remember how miserable we were." She joked.

"Okay! Get ready! They're about to announce you." Astoria said quickly before shoving them into place. She removed the train from Hermione's dress and the veil, giving her an entirely new look. Her dress was still floor length, but now only had a slight flair starting at her thighs.

Their parents, plus each member of the bridal party was introduced before them. When they had finally heard "Mr. and Mrs. Malfoy" they walked into the reception room, hand in hand and stood in the middle of the dance floor. Ginny came up to take Hermione's bouquet so they could have their first dance as a couple.

Everyone watched in awe as Draco spun her around effortlessly on the dance floor.

"I can't take my eyes off of you." He said once they were close enough to each other.

"You don't look so bad yourself." She teased.

"I guarantee that no one has even noticed me when when I'm standing next to you."

"You say that all the time."

"Because it's true."

He continued to spin her around, and even dipped her at the end of the song, earning them a few cheers and whistles from the guests. When they broke apart Hermione danced with her father for one song then Draco danced with his mother. After that they were seated for dinner, which was served by none other than the staff from Draco's winery. He refused to actually pay the fee to himself, and instead divided it up amongst the staff that were working the event.

Hermione and Draco had copied Blaise and Luna and had a sweetheart table all to themselves, avoiding a head table completely. The bridal party shared one long table.

"You know that since we didn't do a receiving line after the ceremony, Astoria wants us to go around and greet each table right?" Hermione said to him during dinner.

"What? Seriously? There's over three hundred people here! Do you even know how many tables that is?"

"Thirty seven." She answered. Draco just laughed at her, clearly not expecting and answer to what he thought was a rhetorical question.

"We only have to spend a minute with each table."

"That's thirty seven more minutes than I want to be spending on this."

"Draco!" She scolded, but ended up laughing. "This is important! All of these people came here to see us get married, we have to thank them for their time."

"They're here because their nosey and enjoy gossip... Alright, fine." He caved when she tried her best to glare at him. "One minute at each table. I will be timing you."

After dinner was served and Hermione decided it was time to greet their guests, he did his best to move her along, but after the first six tables he gave up on the minute per table idea. Hermione was friendly and vocal and truly eager to thank literally every guest for coming. Nearly hour later they had finally made their way back to the front tables, where the wedding party and their parents were seated. Thankfully the guests had been occupied with dessert while they had tirelessly thanked each person for coming. Draco sat in a vacant chair between his mother and Hermione's mother, downing whatever drink was in front of him.

"Don't be so dramatic, dear." Narcissa said to him.

"He's pouting already. It didn't take Wesley long either." Jean commented.

"Nor Arthur, we had a rather large wedding as well. Nothing like this, but we didn't know half the guests that came." Molly explained.

"Neither did I." Narcissa agreed.

"I just want some time with my wife, is that too much to ask for?"

"That's what the honeymoon is for, my dear boy." Narcissa reminded him.

"Oh yes." Draco drawled. "The honeymoon we can't even go on yet because of Potter's wedding."

"I think it's very nice of you two to stay for their wedding. I realize your in it, but to be able to help with the preparations the week before is wonderful." Jean said sincerely.

"We'll be leaving the same they they are." Hermione said to her mother.

"Any plans for Denmark?" Arthur asked.

"Oh, Yes! There's several museums I want to visit, and also one of the worlds largest libraries is located there!" Hermione said in a rush.

Wesley just shook his head. "I hope you get something out of this trip, Draco."

"Oh, I do." He smiled. "Have you ever heard of Legoland?!"

"It's about time you made it to our table!" Theo practically shouted at them when they finally made their way over.

"We had to greet each guest, Theo. It would be disrespectful otherwise."

"Your husband looks thrilled." Theo said with a laugh.

"I'm just ready to have my wife to myself for a while." He pouted.

Hermione just rolled her eyes. "He's just being dramatic." She looked around at the table and jumped with excitement as she laid eyes on the man sitting next to Taylor.

"Oh! You must be Bryce! Oh, I'm so sorry I didn't get to meet you earlier than this!" She rounded the table and he stood to give her a hug. She had to admit, he was a very good looking man. His dark hair and chocolate eyes were quite the attractive combination.

"Tay is always talking about you, it's an honor to finally meet you."

"Oh, I just adore him! He's so sweet." She motioned to Draco. "My husband, Draco."

"Pleasure to meet you." Draco said automatically. "Nice to put a face to a name. Thank you for coming, it really means a lot to my wife and I."

"Wouldn't miss it." Bryce smiled at him.

"Oh, how nice of you to finally stop by." Hermione heard from behind her. She turned to see Sami walking up with a man carrying drinks.

"Here we are." He said as he handed Theo, Taylor and Bryce glasses.

"Pritchard?" Draco asked in surprise.

"Hello, wasn't sure if you'd remember me." With a smile he shook Draco's hand.

Hermione had to admit that he wasn't too bad to look at either, blonde hair and bright green eyes.

"Hermione, this is my boyfriend, Graham Pritchard." Hermione's eyes got wide. Sami had never talked about having a boyfriend.

"He's younger than I am." Sami said, trying to read her thoughts. "He actually was in the same year as Laura."

"Oh, no kidding! She's very sweet."

"This explains the way you can be absolutely Slytherin at times." Draco said to Sami.

"I've picked up a few things." she replied slyly.

"After the honeymoon we have to get together so we can get to know you." Hermione said to Graham. "And Tay and Bryce, too!"

They made their way down to the other end of the table then Harry shot up and hugged Hermione.

"He's had a few firewhiskeys." Ron chuckled from behind him.

"A few?" Blaise smirked from the middle of the table.

"Enjoy it now, Potter. Next week you'll be dragged from table to table thanking people you don't even know for coming to your own wedding."

"Try not to sound so bitter, Draco." Ginny said as she shoved his arm.

"Should've done what we did and just eloped... oh wait, you did that already!" George laughed. "You wanted to give her the wedding, Mate. You can't complain about it now."

"Enough pouting from you." Astoria scolded. "Let's get the dancing started!"

Later on as Draco watched his wife make a fool of herself on the dance floor surrounded by her closest girlfriends, he was surrounded by their significant others passing a bottle around the table.

"So, is it everything you wanted?" Theo asked him.

"It's perfect. She's been so happy all day, that's really all I wanted."

"Stori did and amazing job with this place, she really knows her stuff." Blaise commented. Draco had to agree, he couldn't think of a better place to be married. "Hey, Weasley, you plan on marrying her anytime soon?"

"What is it with you nosey gits, that's the third time I've been asked that tonight!"

"People always ask that at weddings." Charlie said waving his hand.

"I'll marry her when you get married." Ron smirked.

Charlie, who ever backed down from a dare, who had tamed the un-tamable Pansy Parkinson, grinned at his little brother and pulled a small box from his pants pocket and set it on the table.

The stares were priceless.

Ron, who was always underestimated, reached over his chair into his suit jacket pocket, and pulled out a matching small back velvet box.

"Holy shit!" George said in shock and amusement.

"Tonight." Charlie and Ron said at the same time, still looking at each other.

"This is it, then. We'll all be married." Neville said to them as he moved to slap Ron on the back. "To Slytherin's!"

"Funny how things work out." Ron joked.

"Right? I always assumed Neville would end up with Luna!" Harry said with a laugh.

"And Blaise would be a bachelor forever!" Theo said with a smile.

"Look who's talking!" Blaise laughed.

"And Malfoy would end up with Parkinson." George said.

"No one thought that." Draco rushed to say.

"Yes they did." Harry and Neville corrected.

"I guess the only ones that aren't a surprise to anyone is Potter." Draco said with a smile.

"I cant help that I knew what I wanted before the rest of you." Harry said smugly.

As the music changed to a much slower song the girls made their way to the table where they were sitting. Hermione grabbed Harry's hand and dragged him to the dance floor with a smile, while Ginny tore Theo away from Neville.

"I've never seen you happier." Harry whispered to her as she wrapped her arms around his neck.

"Oh, Harry, I couldn't ask for more. This is... everything's perfect."

"You deserve perfect. I love you, you know that?"

"Love you too, Harry. Are you excited for next week? This will be you in no time!"

"I cant wait." He grinned.

As Draco spun Sami around on the dance floor he caught a glance at his wife. Her eyes were glistening and he knew it was from happiness.

"You know, when you first came around I hated you."

"No." Draco said in mock surprise.

Sami just giggled. "I guess you've moved up to alright."

"And you've moved up to tolerable." He winked.

It was at least a dozen more dances before Draco got to hold his wife in his arms.

"When's the earliest we can get out of here?"

"Mmm. Got something else you'd rather be doing, do you?" She said playfully.

"I have a few ideas." Draco winked. "I only have you to myself for tonight and tomorrow, I have to make it count."

"After Harry and Ginny's wedding we'll have two wonderful weeks of just us." She said breathless.

"I'm counting the seconds." He spun her around and then dipped her, giving her a kiss as he pulled her back into him.

The reception lasted until midnight, crushing any hopes Draco had of getting Hermione to himself early. Hermione's eyes filled with tears as she parted with the last few guests, even though she would see them all later that week. She spent a few extra minutes with her parents and Narcissa, and of course Theo who spun her around as he hugged her.

"He doesn't hug me like that." Neville said to Draco.

"I think she has smiles that are reserved just for him." Draco couldn't help but smile at the relationship that she had with his best friend. It just made him love her more. They walked over hand in hand and parted so she could hug Neville, while Theo gave Draco a crushing hug.

"It means a lot to me that you've been there for me all these years." Theo said quietly. "I can't tell you how happy I am that you found her. She completes you."

"I was made for her, I just know it." He looked at his best friend. "Thanks for never giving up on me." Draco hugged him again.

"What the hell, you two never cry over me?" Blaise said as he walked up to kiss Hermione's cheek.

"Who's crying?" Theo said as he wiped his eyes.

Once Hermione finally told Draco they could leave he couldn't get her to their hotel suite fast enough. They stood outside their door and without warning he picked her up and carried over the threshold, making her giggle.

"Your mom told me I had to do that." He set her down gently, holding her to him. "Was it everything you dreamed of?"

"It was more. Draco, everything was perfect. You didn't have to do all of this."

"I did though. I want to give you everything."

"All I need is you." She whispered against his lips.

"There's times where I still can't believe you're mine." He turned her to carefully help her out of her dress, kissing every bit of exposed skin he could as he did so.

She sighed from the soft kisses, making her stir with pleasure. Once she was free from her dress Draco removed what felt like five different layers before they stood in front of each other completely bare. He picked her up and she wrapped her legs around him as he carried her to the bed, laying on top of her as he did so. He trailed kisses from her lips to her stomach, giving her goosebumps as he did so.

"You took your potion this morning, yes?"

"Mhm." She hummed. Draco had made a contraception potion she only had to take once a week, since she claimed it was annoying she had to take it so often after he came back from Australia.

"Good girl." He whispered against her skin. He moved down so his face was nuzzled between her legs, making her shiver with anticipation.

"I've waited all day for you. I've been dying to have you beneath me."

"I know the feeling." She panted. Her fingers found their way to his hair, begging him to taste her.

"I will never get enough of you." He said just before he licked her.

Her sharp intake of breath make him smirk. She was more than ready, but he couldn't help but prolong it. It only tortured them both, yet he just couldn't resist. He licked and sucked until she was crying out his name. Even after her climax, he continued to lick her sensitive folds, then slowly made his way back up her body. He positioned himself at her soaked entrance, pushing in slowly.

"Draco, please."

"Please what, my Love?" His attempt at control was laughable, he was barely containing himself from driving into her. And hearing her beg for it was his undoing. Before she could answer he was already buried deep inside her. "Hermione." He panted.

"Move, please. I need to feel you." Her hips were pushing up against his, the friction from the skin to skin contact making her moan.

Draco wanted this to last, so instead of giving her what he knew she wanted he moved his hips in small circles, rubbing himself against her body. She was still sensitive form her first orgasm, and knew she wouldn't last much longer either. She arched her back into him, giving him perfect access to her neck. He kissed and licked and sucked on her skin as he set an excruciatingly slow pace.

Her nails her digging into him as she tried to force him to go faster. The feeling of it sent shivers through him, and he couldn't hold out any longer. He propped himself up on his elbows and began slamming into her without warning, loving the screams she was making at the fast pace she had begged him for.

"Hermione, please. I cant-"

His plea was completely drowned out in her cry of ecstasy, sending him over the edge. As they crashed down together, the world was spinning around them. He collapsed on top of her, rolling them both onto their sides to face each other. He joined their left hands, looking at their rings.

"Did you feel it?" He asked, still panting. "During the ceremony?"

She nodded. "What was it?"

"I don't know. I think it was the magic that was held within the rings. Maybe it was released when they were finally joined together."

"By true love." She moved in to kiss him, her eyes shinning. "I love you, Draco."

"I love you, Hermione."

Exactly fifteen years later, Draco and Hermione followed the tradition of getting new rings for their anniversary. Although they were sad to depart with them, they put them back in with the Black family jewels, to be passed down to their son Scorpius when he wished to wed, and he would then wear his father's ring. Draco was happy to pass along the tradition, knowing that the love that he and Hermione shared infused itself in their rings, making the magic they held even stronger. Knowing that he and Hermione were the ones to finally bring the Granger and Black lines together always made his heart burst every time Scorpius asked to hear the story.

After years of watching and learning from the love that his parents shared, when he asked Rose Weasley to marry him and slid his mother's ring on her finger nine years later, he knew that he had gotten it right.
