A/N: This is my second HP story inspired by Solstice Muse 's Lost. I read that and started wondering what would happen had Harry, Ron and Hermione not escaped in time at Bill's wedding.

"I now pronounce you husband and wife" finished Arthur Weasley. "Congratulations!"

Amid the claps and cheers, Bill and Fleur kissed passionately before turning to face their family and friends. Of course Fred and George cheekily gave their eldest brother a thumbs up, approving the fact that their brother had gotten himself a Veela wife.

As the newly wedded couple made their way back down the aisle they smiled and waved, greeting their guests. The whole of the Hogwarts' faculty minus the recently deceased Headmaster was there happy to see one of their brightest former students so content in his new life despite the physical scars he'd gained not so long ago. The entirety of the Weasley clan was present, not including Percy, Bill's second youngest brother, as well as the members of the Order of the Phoenix. Hermione and Harry (disguised as a Weasley cousin using Polyjuice Potion) were also there.

As the newlyweds gained the end of the homemade aisle, the guests dispersed to enjoy each others' company and to individually congratulate the now married couple. Predictably the first to reach the two was Mrs. Weasley. Throwing her arms around her tall son, the Weasley matriarch squeezed tightly and gushed

"Oh my little boy is all grown up now". She sniffled then continued, 'I'm so proud of you, William!"

Releasing her son, the mother sobered and turned to face her new daughter-in-law. "Fleur, I'm sorry we got off to a bad start. I realized just last night how wrong I was to treat you that way. Do you think we can start anew?" Nodding happily Fleur bent to kiss her mother-in-law on both cheeks. "Of course, Mrs. Weasley. All is forgiven and forgotten". Beaming while wiping her tears away, Mrs. Weasley turned and walked away, allowing someone else to approach her son and his new wife.

The next thing anyone knew there was an explosion of sound and light. Chaos erupted instantly.

TBC…

This is only my second HP story, third in total. I'm still new at this so any feedback, positive or negative is welcome.
