"Stay in? Hmm. I think I could live with that." Lavender grinned. "Of course, I've got the rest of my life to get used to it."

A few people waved at them when they came into the Great Hall and Lavender blushed. "Shall we get some drinks?" she asked.

Charlie squeezed her hand and nodded. He waved back at the people who had waved at them. They headed to the bar before heading towards their seats at the Head Table.

He whispered in her ear, “I wasn’t expecting so many people to turn up.”

Lavender giggled, sipping her champagne. "Probably wanted to see if Charlie Weasley really did get married," she said in a teasing whisper, although she had just as many friends at the reception.

Looking around, she remarked, "It's so nice to see so many people in the Great Hall. Like the school has some life back. And they're here for us. To share this with us."

Charlie made a face at her. “Oi cheeky. The same could said for you.” He looked round again and looked up at the ceiling. “Even the sun’s shining. What more can you ask for.”

He nudged her. “I think people are wanting eat. Time for speeches?”

Laughing, Lavender leant over and kissed his cheek. "Don't think there's anything more I could ask for. Got everything I need."

She nodded, glancing around the hall. "Yes, time for food, I think. I'm starving all of a sudden." She frowned a little. "Speeches, too, I suppose."

Charlie shrugged. “Might as well get it over and done with.” He stood up and cleared his throat. “I’d like to thank you all for coming. My wife and I” he stopped whilst people cheered, “really do appreciate you all coming. So, please eat drink and generally be merry. And please remember that there are beds available around the school.”

He grinned and sat back down.

Lavender laughed when Charlie referred to her as his wife. It was true, but there was something about it that was ridiculously funny. She stood up, still grinning, her hand reaching for Charlie's.

"Like Charlie said..." She rolled her eyes when there were a couple of catcalls. "Like my husband said," she corrected, blushing, "thank you so much for coming today. It's amazing to see so many people here supporting us. The food is just being served now and the bar is well-stocked, so please enjoy yourselves."

They both sat down and Charlie kissed her knuckles. Molly and Hyacinth bought Rosie up to the head table and Charlie settled her on his lap.

The waiters started bringing the food around and it smelt wonderful.

Lavender put down her glass of champagne, thanking the waiter who brought their food.

On Charlie's lap, Rosie flapped her hands excitedly. "Ung!"

Laughing, Lavender stroked her cheek. "You can't be hungry. I saw you having a bottle just now."

Rosie flashed her a gummy smile, twisting to look up at Charlie. "Da?"

Charlie beamed as she said that. “Aren’t you a clever girl? Yes you are.” He gave her a napkin to play with and she clung onto it with an expression of concentration.

He frowned and looked up at Lavender. “She hasn’t been talking with you, has she?”

A little sadly, Lavender shook her head. "No, not really." Rosie giggled, playing with the napkin, and Lavender had to smile at the expression on her face.

"However," she said with a grin, "yesterday she rolled over all by herself." Lavender giggled slightly. "Kept doing it, too. I had to put a spell on the bed to stop her falling off."

Charlie laughed. “Atta girl,” he told Rosie. She gurgled and took a swipe at him. He patted Lavender’s knee and then reached for a piece of bread.

“She’ll start with you as well. I promise.”

Lavender sighed, picking up her glass and taking a sip of champagne. "I know she will. She's still only little, anyway."

"Bah!" Rosie told her in all sincerity, making Lavender giggle. She looked up when she heard the sound of a camera, to see that the photographer had snapped a picture of them. He smiled at them and wandered off to take some more pictures of the guests.

Lavender stroked Rosie's red hair. "Besides, we always knew she'd be a daddy's girl."

Charlie took another mouthful. “It should be a nice photo though.” He watched as the photographer circled the room.

He grinned and teased Lavender “And you’re saying that like’s a bad thing. Being a daddy’s girl isn’t a bad thing at all.”

Lavender pouted playfully. "I never said there was anything wrong with being a daddy's girl." She gently stroked Rosie's red hair with a small smile playing on her lips. "I'm a daddy's girl, too."

She gratefully took a bit of food, suddenly realising just how hungry she was. It felt as though she hadn't eaten all day, which was mostly true as she had been too nervous to eat earlier.

Rosie dropped the napkin and then made an attempt to grab Lavender’s bracelets. Charlie took off his tags and let her play with them.

He started to eat his food. He grinned and asked “have you actually eaten today at all?”

Lavender frowned. "Erm, not really. My stomach was feeling all jittery earlier." She took another bite of food, watching Rosie jangle the tags in delight. "Definitely got my appetite back now, though," she added, not wanting Charlie to worry about her.

"Think I might have a bit of a sweet tooth, too," she said. "I'm looking forward to cutting the cake later."
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 4th, 2006 11:10 am (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie grinned. “There, I knew it would eventually rub off on you.” He looked down at Rosie and nearly got hit in the mouth by Rose, who was waving his tags.

He glanced over to where the cakes were sitting. “What kind did we decide on in the end again? Fruit or sponge?”

Lavender licked her lips, looking over at the cakes. Charlie's sweet tooth had definitely rubbed off on her and she had a feeling that Rosie would inherit it, too, when she started on solids.

"Couldn't decide," she admitted, looking at the three-tiered cake, iced in a similar colour to her dress with a few sugary white roses that looked amazingly realistic. "So... the bottom layer is fruit, the middle is sponge and the top..." Lavender grinned wickedly. "The top is this chocolate toffee thing."

Charlie suddenly felt very hungry when she told him that. “It does look very good, doesn’t it?” Rosie had stared sucking his tags and Charlie kept half an eye on her.

“At least people will like some of it.” He gave her his best smile. “Do we get to keep the top bit for ourselves?”

Leaning over, Lavender kissed the side of his mouth. "That was the plan," she murmured before sitting back in her seat. She smiled and continued to eat her food, watching Rosie out of the corner of her eye.

As soon as Lavender put her fork down, Rosie cried, "Gah!" reaching out her arms. Laughing, Lavender took her from Charlie and perched her on her hip. "Mummy's got you now, Baby Girl." She kissed the top of her head. "You're having a sleepover at Nana Molly's house tonight, aren't you? Yes, you are."

Charlie raised an eyebrow and smiled slowly. “I don’t think anyone mentioned that either. And we all know what happens to people who keep secrets, don’t we?”

He finished his plate of food and then leaned back in his chair and sipped his champagne.

Lavender smirked, reaching for her champagne with her free hand. "Hmmm. What happens to people who keep secrets from their husbands? They don't get punished, do they?"

She jigged Rosie on her hip, Rosie giving a squawk of laughter. "It's a practise run for Mummy and Daddy's honeymoon, isn't it?."
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 4th, 2006 12:01 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie tickled Rosie and she gurgled again. “They do get punished. How did you guess? I don’t keep those handcuffs in the drawer for kicks and giggles.”

He smirked at her as he sipped his champagne.

Lavender practically shivered in anticipated when Charlie said that. "Really?" she asked softly. "Because I thought that was exactly what we kept them for." She licked her lips, already looking forward to going home.

"Mmm. Secretly planning a honeymoon and sending our daughter off to her grandparent's for the night... I think that might need quite a bit of punishment."
