Lavender went over to her mother and Molly; Hyacinth pulled her into a tight hug. "Sweetheart, you look beautiful. I can't believe my little girl's married!"

Lavender raised her eyebrows. "You've been nagging us to get married for months."

"Well, yes," Hyacinth relented with a frown, "but it's actually happened now!"

Molly smiled at her. "How are you feeling, Lavender?"

Lavender shrugged. "Great. Still so excited." She bit her lip. "It almost feels that there's a part of my life that's ending today. But, you know, something even better is starting."

Her new mother-in-law gave her a hug, though not quite as tight as the one she had given her after the ceremony. "I know I don't need to tell you to look after my little boy." Molly sniffed slightly. "I suppose he's not really little any more, though."

"No," Lavender said softly, shaking her head. "Not really."

Charlie saw that Lavender had been hijacked by their respective mothers and sighed. He decided not to interfere and turned his attention back to Rosie, who was enchanted by Duncan’s sporran.

He relaxed into his chair and took a sip of the drink that Arthur had passed to him. Arthur smiled at him and said “The hard bit’s over now.”

Duncan agreed and tickled Rosie. Rosie gurgled with delight. “Has she told you about your honeymoon yet? She was running around like a blue arsed fly trying to organise it all whilst you were away,” asked Duncan, half looking up.

Charlie nodded. “She told me earlier. It was a bit of a surprise, to say the least.”

"What was a surprise?" Lavender had left Molly and Hyacinth talking to Bill and rejoined Charlie. She slipped her arm around his waist, resting her head against his shoulder.

"Hello, Baby Girl," Lavender said softly, waving at Rosie. "Are you looking after your granddad?"

Rosie smiled at her. "Gah!"

Charlie wrapped his arm round her. “The honeymoon. Your dad was saying you were running around like a mad thing organising it.”

He tugged her, so she settled on his lap. He laughed softly as he watched Rosie. “She’s liking his sporran.”

"I wasn't that mad!" Lavender protested, settling comfortably onto Charlie's lap. "Okay, a little bit," she relented.

Lavender smiled as she watched Rosie. "Dad's only half Scottish," she told Charlie, rolling her eyes.

"That's beside the point," Duncan said, adjusting Rosie when she wobbled slightly on his lap.

He wrapped his arms round her waist and settled her chin on her shoulder. Charlie smiled, "I think it's nice."

Arthur gave a small chuckle. "Adds a bit of colour really. I mean, you can't miss our side of the family." He stroked Rosie's hair and continued "Looks like she's got our colouring and all."

Rosie blew a raspberry and Lavender laughed, taking her from her father. Smiling in delight, Rosie threw up her hands with joy. Cuddle with Mummy and Daddy! Yay!

"I didn't expect anything less," Lavender said, dropping a kiss on Rosie's head, glad to have her familiar weight in her arms and Charlie holding her tightly, protectively. "I think her hair's going to get a little darker, but I definitely think there's going to be freckles."

Rosie reached up to tug on lavender’s neckline and Charlie absently stroked her arm. “She’s definitely have to stay out of the sun. Especially at the moment with the current heat wave.”

He frowned before smiling again. “We’re still not sure whether her eyes are going to change colour or just stay blue.”

Lavender teasingly pressed Rosie's nose. "Beep!" Rosie shook her head and blew a raspberry at Mummy.

"Well, I don't care if they change or not. She's beautiful anyway." Lavender relaxed back into Charlie's arms, a little relieved when Rosie yawned. She'd been awake for hours, so Lavender had a feeling that she'd feel asleep any moment.

Charlie asked “Are you all right holding her or shall we put her in her carrier thingy?” Duncan tilted his head. “She is about to drop off, isn’t she? Far too much excitement, probably.”

He smiled as Rosie gave another yawn and then wriggled a little to get comfortable. Arthur said “We have her carry cot for when we take her tonight.”

"Yeah, that's a good idea," Lavender agreed, giving Rosie another kiss before she put her in the carrier that was sitting at Arthur's feet. Rosie yawned, blinking sleepily. Just as she was about to put her thumb in her mouth, Lavender found the dummy that was attached by a cord to the carrier's handle, popping it into her mouth.

Lavender settled back in Charlie's arms, covering his hands with hers.

Charlie absently stoked her belly as Lavender settled back on his lap. Arthur looked round and said, “we had a look round before the ceremony. It looks like Hogwarts is ready to reopen. It’s nice to see it feeling alive again.”

Charlie smiled as well. “We thought it would be nice to have something happy here again after everything’s that happened.”

"This place needs lots more good memories to make up for the war." Lavender twisted to smile at Charlie, kissing his cheek.

"I think it's fitting," she said. "Hogwarts is starting a new life, and so are we. So are a lot of other people."
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 5th, 2006 02:02 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie shrugged. “It’s a start on the happy memories.”

He looked round the room and a few people that he would never expected to see together. Cho and Fred were talking about something that involved a lot of arm waving. Fleur looked a lot happier with this new fella then she ever did and Ron and John were still looking fairly relaxed. He smiled quietly when he saw Draco and Hermione – two people he never thought he’d see together.

"End of an era, start of a new one. And we can help make more happy memories," Lavender murmured, her eyes half-closed as she enjoyed Charlie holding her.

Lavender felt safe and love and happy, and there wasn't really anything else she could ask for.

Charlie carefully reached for his glass and then took a sip of his champagne. He then kissed Lavender’s neck. “Don’t fall asleep on me,” he teased gently.

Arthur and Duncan laughed at that and then stood to rejoin their respective wives by the band.

"I won't," Lavender promised as Duncan and Arthur left. She smiled and ducked down to lift Rosie's carrier onto the table. The baby was fast asleep, though still sucking her dummy.

Lavender turned to kiss Charlie, tasting champagne on his lips.

Charlie smiled against her lips and smiled. “What kind of kiss is that?” He traced along her side and kissed her again.

He looked up at her and gave her a half smile. He then blew a raspberry on her front.

Lavender gave a slight squeal, wriggling on his lap. "Charlie!" When he raised his head again, she kissed him thoroughly, fingers tangling in his hair.

"Better?" she asked, kissing the side of his mouth and not particularly caring if anyone was watching them. It was their wedding, after all.
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 5th, 2006 02:53 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie nodded and said “yep. That’s a lot better. You have to keep kissing me regularly otherwise I’ll come over all faint.”

He nodded seriously. “And we can’t be having that, can we?” He ran his hand up her back.
gyromancy From: gyromancy Date: July 5th, 2006 02:55 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"I'll bear that in mind," Lavender told him, kissing him again. "Don't want you coming over all faint on our wedding night." She smiled and stroked his hair from his face.

"My poor, delicate husband," she teased between kisses, eyes alight with excitement.
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 5th, 2006 03:11 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie sniffed. “I’m awfully delicate. I need a lot of tender loving care.” He licked her neck and then remembered they were in public.

He looked up at her and asked half seriously, “Any special considerations I need to bear in mind for my lady wife?”

"Not that I'm aware of," Lavender told him, pressing a kiss to his temple. "I like how things are. Don't think being married changes anything. Except my name. And that's a fantastic change because it makes me feel closer to you."

She sighed contentedly, resting her head against his.
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: July 5th, 2006 03:28 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie gave a contented sigh and kissed her throat again. “I will have to call you Mrs Weasley for a while so that you can get used to it.”

He smirked slightly. “Of course that will be after I have my way with you on several occasions”
gyromancy From: gyromancy Date: July 5th, 2006 03:34 pm (UTC) (Tags)
She let out a long breath as Charlie kissed her throat and Lavender started to wish that they could leve right then and there.

"Oh, of course." Lavender's smirk matched his as she looked at him. "In fact, I would be very disappointed if you didn't have your wicked way with me."
