Ode to Joy! Christmas Day, Way in the future.
"Harry, it's almost time," Scorpius said loudly but with a monitored tone.
"I'm ready," Harry replied as he made his way down the stairs. The carved walking stick, a recent but necessary addition, clicked on the wood stairs.
Scorpius couldn't help but smile. The retired Auror still made a presence when he entered a room.
Harry snuck a wry grin at Scorpius as grandkids raced through the house and pounded up and down the stairs. Scorpius returned the gesture with a smirk, knowing that they both adored the sound now.
"Potter, would you like some more tea?"
Harry glanced over at Draco and nodded. "Yes, but only if you spike it."
"As if," Draco drawled, and then reached into his robe and pulled out a silver flask. One that Harry had given him for Christmas years before.
"Draco!" Astoria commented as he poured a healthy amount into each of their cups.
"Well hells bells, Astoria, how can one make it through Christmas with all of these children? You'd think we were part Weasley."
Harry laughed generously as he noticed seven of the ten small witches and wizards terrorizing the house carried the blood of Malfoy and Black in them.
"Grandfather, don't be a curmudgeon," Cy said as he sat down next to Draco.
Draco grimaced at him. "Cy, I am an old wizard that spreads joy to all that I encounter."
Harry lifted the flask and added a little more to Draco's cup. Scorpius nudged him in the side and more trickled in.
"You've been reading Dickens again, haven't you, Grandfather?" Ella yelled from across the crowded living room. "Did Great-grandfather come visit you in your dreams?"
Harry coughed trying not to laugh. Al and Lily showed less restraint. Al's wife frowned at all three of them.
"And for this, I suppose I should thank you, Potter, for saving my life." Draco sighed as he leaned back and sipped his tea.
The room became silent, even the Christmas tree fairies stilled.
Harry put his arm around Scorpius' shoulder, nervous fingers played with the long blond locks.
"I believe you saved mine, too, Malfoy."
"Phhht, it wasn't the same," Draco mumbled.
Harry looked at the old white-haired wizard and pulled out his holly wand. Astoria gasped. Harry reached over and poked Draco in the leg.
Draco swatted it away. "So we're even, old man?"
"I suppose so, Father-in-law."
I will be reposting these in Chrological Order soon. I'll send a post out. Thank you for reading!
