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?."

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?”

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?"

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.”

"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."

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.”

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.

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.

"Da!" Rosie reached out her hands, straining against Lavender, who sighed and passed her over.

"I think it'll be a while before you have to give any talks to her, unless you count 'wands are not toys'." Lavender smiled, watching Rosie bury her head against Charlie, sucking her thumb.

"As for John... yeah, I think he definitely offers something that you don't."

Charlie bliked and gave a wry smile as h cuddled Rosie and dropped a kiss on the top of her head.

"I think I will just tell her if she plays with my wand, I'll feed her to the dragons." He looked round as people were begin to finish their food.

"Shall we cut the cake before people start getting antsy?" he asked.

"She'll probably just laugh at you if you tell her that," Lavender teased.

She nodded, taking Charlie's hand. "Okay. Cake-cutting time, it is."

They went over to the cake, all attention turning onto them. Lavender picked up the knife, looking up at Charlie. "Which bit shall we cut?"
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 4th, 2006 10:08 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie wrinkled his nose in thought. "The bottom bit. Stop it from collapsing for the minute and then people will be able to choose which bits they want."

They cut the cake with the flash of people's cameras almost blinding them and Charlie coughed slightly from the smoke. Molly bustled over and satrted to organise the cutting of the rest of the cake. The band struck up a slightly jaunty tune and some brave couples started to drift onto the dance floor.

Lavender picked at a few crumbs of cake, discreetly telling Molly to save as much of the chocolaty top layer for them as possible.

She grinned at Charlie. "Come on," she said, taking his hand. "I think we need to go and have our first dance."
