Anora didn't bring them directly to the Forney household but down the road from the home.

"And yet you make fun of me for missing my target." Charlie scoffed playfully at her.

"I purposely brought us down here, Charles." Anora said. "I figured you didn't want to just show right up at the door."

"Oh." Charlie said. "Thank you."

"You're welcome," she chuckled. She held onto his hand and rested her head on his shoulder. "Do you know how we're going to go about telling them?" she asked.

"I say we just throw it out there...right before dinner. We sit them down and just say " Surprise, you're pregnant and I'm the father."

"Who else would they suspect the father to be?" Anora said looking up at him.

"Good point, leave that last part out then." he told her.

"So you just want to blurt it out?"

"Yes."

"Charlie, I know you're not going to do that."

"Well, you can do it then. I'll hide behind the sofa."

"They're not going to kill you!"

"You don't know that! Your parents are both incredibly strong, those years of quidditch didn't leave them weak!"

Iggy meowed from where he rested in Anora's bag. She glanced down at the cat.

"I know, he is being very dramatic." she said before walking down the road towards her home.

"If you want dramatic, I'll show you dramatic!" Charlie called after her.

"Just come on."


As the couple stood outside, Anora gave Charlie a look before knocking on the door. Simone, of course, was the one who answered it and welcomed them happily. She hugged Anora first before hugging Charlie. Iggy pulled himself out of the bag and walked into the Forney household towards the living room to get to his favorite spot on the sofa.

Gerald showed up in the hall and greeted his daughter.

"It's always so good to see you." Gerald said as she hugged her tightly.

"It's always good to see you too, Dad. I missed you."

"I've missed you too. I always wish that you would come home to visit more often."

"I know and we're going to Dad, I promise." she said, "Especially now."

"Especially now?" Gerald repeated. "Why's that? Are you two thinking about coming home? Moving to a closer sanctuary?!"

"No, Dad." she smiled," but um...we do have some news."

The Forney's looked at each other before Anora pushed her father in the direction of the living room. She sat him on the sofa beside's Iggy and held her father's hand while Charlie allowed Simone to walk into the living room first. Simone sat in an arm chair and Charlie stood behind her, fully prepared to make a bolt to the door if they turned on him.

"What's going on, Anora? I'm scared." Simone said. "Is everything alright? Are you two in trouble?"

"No Mum, it's nothing bad. Relax. It's good news...at least I think it's good news."

"Well that last part wasn't very reassuring." Gerald said squeezing his daughter's hand slightly. "What's going on, sweetheart?"

"Well, Dad...Charlie and I..we're...well I'm...we're..we're expecting." Anora said.

Gerald looked at his daughter but said nothing, but the look on his face made it seem like Gerald was waiting for Anora to continue her statement.

"Expecting..." he finally said.

Suddenly, Simone screamed out causing Charlie to duck and Anora and her father to jump.

"What...what's going on?!" Gerald looked around.

Anora smacked her forehead as her father was completely clueless as to what she was announcing, but her mother was already in tears.

Charlie peeked over the back of the armchair as Simone looked to her husband.

"Oh for the love of Merlin, Ger, Anora's pregnant! They're expecting a child!"

The woman stood up from the chair and pulled Charlie towards her in a happy hug as she jumped up and down in place.

Gerald turned his head to face Anora, his eyes wide and she could see he was nearly shaking.

"Dad.."

His eyes looked down to her stomach and then back at her. 

"You're pregnant?"

She nodded.

Charlie and Anora both waited for one of two reactions. He was either going to faint or he was going to hex the hell out of Charlie.

"Oh sweetheart," the man said suddenly before he pulled her into him, hugging her again. "I don't know what to say, but I'm so happy."

She heard his voice crack near the end and after a couple of moments, Anora realized her father was crying.

"Dad...no don't cry!" Anora said patting his back.

"No, I'm crying because I'm happy. I'm so happy for you and..." He released her and stood up, walking over to Charlie. Simone released him to let Gerald hug him.

"Congratulations." he told Charlie. "To the both of you!"
