You wrung your hands as you waited for your boyfriend to come home. It was a half day so thankfully you were only left worrying for six hours instead of all day. You bit your lip, tasting blood, but you didn't blink an eye.

You screwed up. Big time.

You hear the swoosh of the fireplace, signaling Draco's return. You blinked back tears as you ignored the painful bubble of anxiety in your stomach. You just had to tell him. Not time to think about it and psych yourself out.

Draco let out a breath and ran his hand through his hair. Happy to be done with his meetings, Draco was ready to be home with you and not having to worry about much of anything else for the rest of the day. But what he wasn't exactly happy to turn the corner to find you looking at him carefully, your eyes brimmed red with unshed tears.

Draco put down his bag and took off his blazer, never taking his eyes off of you. You didn't say anything as he took your hands and brought you to sit down. You sat across from him, looking anywhere but at him.

You would open and close your mouth a few times but no words followed. You knew you were making him anxious about what you were going to say but you couldn't help it. This wasn't exactly an easy topic to bring up. Especially when you had already talked to him about it before and he was adamant on where he stood on the issue.

Draco leaned back on the couch as he tried not to let his worst fears come to mind. But just by watching you he knew this wasn't going to be as good of a day as he had hoped. He itched to just tell you to spit it out but knowing you that would only make things worse. So he waited; ready to hear about you not being happy with an ex-Death Eater.

You closed your eyes and let out a breath. It's either now or never.

You didn't open your eyes or look up at him as you opened your mouth, holding back a sob.

"I'm so sorry, Draco."

The blond's heart shattered at the sound of sorrow and desperation in your voice. But he kept quiet, his face void of emotion.

You sniffed and wiped back tears. "I know we have already talked about this and you have already made up your mind but there isn't anything that can be done now."

Draco let his brows knit in confusion. He doesn't remember talking about you leaving before or anything of that nature. Learning from past mistakes that lead to long, pointless arguments, Draco leaned forward and grasped your hand.

"Please (Y/n), I'm not upset."

Your head shot up and a glimmer of hope filled your chest. " What? I thought you would be furious." Your voice quieted as you looked down at his hand in yours.

Draco swallowed a lump forming in this throat. "I suppose I have every right to be furious but I don't entirely blame you."

You blinked at him. "Draco, I am to blame completely. I am the reason we won't be entirely happy. I know it's not an excuse but I just forgot myself."

Your words ripped at his heart. But deep down he wasn't surprised that you had found someone else that would make you happy. "No, (Y/n), I understand. I guess I just have poor timing. And I guess I haven't paid attention to you and your feelings." Draco thought to the small box he kept in his work bag at all times. The little box he was planning on giving you when he wasn't being such a chicken. "As long as you are sure of your desition and it makes you happy, it would be best if you left soon."

Draco stood and you stared up at him, open mouthed. "Wait! So you are kicking me out?! Yes, I know, forgetting to take the pills will cost us time together but I haven't exactly been myself since the funeral of two of my family members. I would think you would at least hear me out before kicking me on the streets!"

Draco paused. Pills? Wait.

He turned to you, sitting back down. "Hold on. Pills?"

You nodded, your face reddening. "I knew there was something I was forgetting to do each day but I couldn't put my finger on it. Ever since the first funeral, I have forgotten to take the birth control pills and now..."

Draco just stared at you, his mind working like cold molasses. You rolled your eyes and folded your arms.

"Pregnant Draco. I am pregnant with your child."

Child?

Draco let out a little laugh, your side of the conversation making sense now.

You looked at him with confusion as his little laugh turned into real, deep, soul lifting laughs. You couldn't help but smile, yet you were worried. Was he so deliriously angry that he just snapped?

After a few seconds, Draco calmed down. He beamed at you as he stroked your cheek. "Thank God. And to think..." he let out another laugh.

Your eyes widened. "What did you think I was talking about?"

"I thought you had found someone else. That you didn't want to be with someone like me."

You let out a breath. "My Lord, how many times do I have to tell you that I love you!" You smacked him on the arm, the both of you laughing a bit. But you sobered, looking down at your intertwined hands. "But I thought you didn't want children."

Draco shook his head as he pulled you to him so you were sitting on his lap sideways. He placed a gentle hand on your stomach, kissing your shoulder. "Of course I want children love, a whole army of them," you giggled, resting your head on his shoulder, "But I was hoping to get married first and have a more stable job so you didn't have to worry about working and caring for our little ones."

Draco held his breath. You two had only talked about marriage a handful of times and it was always with either one or both of you were drunk. But Draco never forgot nor did he want your hand to stay bare.

You smiled as new, happy tears fell. You turned your face up to kiss him under his jaw and up to his ear. Your smile grew as you felt him shiver under your touch. Draco looked down at you, taking in your radiant smile. He didn't know he could love you more than he did now.

"And yes, I am partially to blame for our child. It takes two."Draco winked. "Besides, I would be a fool to be furious about you holding our future Malfoy." 

You chuckled as you rested your head on his shoulder again. The two of you sat for who knows how long before you broke the silence.

"Spring."

"Hmm?" Draco looked down at you.

You moved to where you were looking at him straight on, his hands around your waist and your hands snaking up his arms. "I want my wedding in the spring. Whenever we get around to it of course."

Draco kissed you. Your body melted to him as he held you tight. You both knew communication was imoirtant so it wasn't hard to show how much you loved each other in the kiss. The two have you never felt so scared and upset in your life but it all faded away with the love and excitement your lives were undoubtedly filled with.
