This chapter continues where the other left off. Sorry it took so long. Oh yeah I don’t own any of this stuff.

“Oh, Harry, Is that what your worried about?” Hermione said as she walked slowly over to him and rested her hand on his arm.
“ Hermione, I can’t let Duncan grow up like that. He can’t go back to the Dursleys. He might not have any one to love him. Hogwarts might not be as easy for him as it was for me.” He half turned to go when Hermione reached for his other hand and faced him towards her.
“ Did you really mean it?” she questioned searching his eyes.
“ What?” He asked forgetting what he said a moment before, his thoughts were still on the Dursleys.
“ That you love me…” She trailed off hoping against all hope that he meant it.
“ Yes. More than anything.” He was mad at himself, this was not how he planned to tell her about their circumstances with the adoption. He wanted to ask her to marry him, not for her to feel pressured into it.
“ Harry what is it?” She asked after seeing the hesitation and momentary anger flash across his face.
“ Lets sit down. I have something to tell you.” He held her hand as he led her over to the couch.
“ When I met with Dumbledore I asked him about the adoption papers,
“ What did he say? Are they ready yet?” she asked with excitement.
“No. Something else needs to happen before we can sign them. In both the Muggle and Wizarding worlds.” Harry’s head dropped.
“Whatever it is I’ll do it. I just want him to be ours for good. I want the first words out of his mouth to be mum and dad, and them to be at us.”
Harry’s head shot up. He looked into her eyes, and when she looked back at him he said:
“ Will you marry me?”
She blinked in amazement, then turned questioning eyes on him.
“ Are we allowed to? We arnt even of age… I mean, I have thought about it, a lot actually… but are we actually allowed?”
He lowered his head and tried to find a different way to say it he cautiously looked up at her and said
“ We have to.”
“ What? Why? Is it Duncan?”
“ Yes, the laws say that a person wishing to adopt a family member must either be of legal age to do so or have consent of their guardians to be married so that the child will have a chance at a more normal childhood.”
“ I agree, but did you just ask because of that?” Hermione asked as realization of the situation hit her full in the face.
“ No, it’s been on my mind for ages. I was going to wait till we were out of Hogwarts so that we could have some sort of normalcy the next two years, but Dumbledore said that it was required or Duncan would have to go back to the Dursleys.”
“NO!” Hermione said now as she started to cry. Harry leaned over and took her in his arms
“ This is not how I wanted it to happen, I wanted to make you feel like you are the person I see you as. Just because we have to get married now doesn’t mean I don’t love you. On the contrary, I love you more because you have a very hard decision to make.”
“ Oh… Harry, I do love you. But what if my mum and dad say no?” She said backing away and looking him full in the face.
“ They can’t, we cant let them.” He said as though fighting against their no already.
“ But how?”
“ We’ll ask Dumbledore if on the next Hogsmeade visit we can go to London with him instead. Duncan will come with us and if your parents and the dursleys see how much we love him they just cant say no.”
“ Can we talk to Dumbledore now?”
“ I don’t know, Hang on…” Harry said, as he pulled out his wand.
“ Accio Map” In a moment the map was in his hands and he opened it saying
“ I solomny swear that I am up to no good.”
