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."

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."

"nah. Pink really doesn't suit me." Charlie stroked the back of her hand. "Ypo, on the hand, it suits very nicely."

He gave her a cheeky grin. "And some for being a etase."

Lavender pouted and blew him a kiss. "I love you, too," she teased. SMiling slyly, she added, "If you like me in pink, just wait until you see my new bikinis for Tabago."

She turned over her hand so that she could hold his, linking their fingers.

Charlie rubbed his thumb along the side of her fingers before he said “Well, I do prefer you in nothing at all but,” he then shrugged with a slight leer. “These things can’t really be helped.”

He sipped his champagne and then said “Tell me about these bikinis. Exactly how much do they leave to the imagination?”
gyromancy From: gyromancy Date: July 4th, 2006 01:49 pm (UTC) (Tags)
She blushed slightly. "I prefer being in nothing at all, too. Maybe it'll be too hot for clothes. Don't really think my bikinis count as clothes. Little tiny scraps just to preserve my dignity. Had to get some new ones; all the bras were too small."

Lavender ran a finger around the rim of her champagne glass. "Did I mention that we have a pool all to ourselves? A private, secluded pool?"
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 4th, 2006 02:02 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie looked vaguely amused as he straightened Rosie’s dress. “You certainly didn’t mention that bit about the pool.” He took a deep breath just to settle himself.

“I suppose you did have to get some new ones. You do have a lot more cleavage now, which is very much appreciated.”
gyromancy From: gyromancy Date: July 4th, 2006 03:42 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"Yes, I'd be practically spilling out of my old ones," Lavender agreed, wondering if she should pack one anyway. She stroked Rosie's hair. "You've got this one to thank for my cleavage," she joked.

Lavender took a sip of her champagne, looking around the Great Hall. "Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves."
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 4th, 2006 03:50 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie smiled and let Rosie make a grab for his fingers. “You could call it an added perk. I’m definitely liking it.” He looked round at the Hall where there was a buzz of conversation.

He saw Ron and John seemingly deep in conversation. He nodded towards them. “They certainly are.”
gyromancy From: gyromancy Date: July 4th, 2006 03:54 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Lavender grinned when Charlie pointed out Ron and John. "Aww, bless. It's nice to see him looking so happy for a change." She adjusted Rosie and said, "Looks like Uncle Ron's got a boyfriend, doesn't it, Baby Girl? What do you think of that?"

Rosie looked up at Mummy and blew a raspberry.

Covering her mouth with her hand to try and stifle her giggles, Lavender asked, "And where did you learn to do that, Miss Weasley?" Rosie just smiled gummily at her.

Charlie looked a little sheepish. “That might have been me.” Rosie threw his tags down onto Lavender’s lap and Charlie retrieved them and put them back round his neck.

He looked amused about Ron. He leaned forward and said in a conspiratorial whisper, “A little bird told me that he might be going to Romania fairly soon for a visit. Something he never managed when I was out there.”

Giggling, Lavender looked over at Ron again. "Really?" She gave a snort of laughter. "Bloody hell. He moves fast." Looking down at Rosie, who was now happily sucking her thumb, Lavender said, "I think Daddy's going to have to give a if-you-hurt-my-brother talk to John-boy."

She grinned at Charlie, trying to imagine what would happen if that conversation ever did take place.
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 4th, 2006 04:18 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie shuddered. “Or not. They’re both big boys. They can look after themselves.” He smiled. “Presumably, John offers something that I can’t. How much sight seeing will be done is debatable. I’m already dreading having to do it for this one.”

He tickled Rosie gently under the chin.
