A/N: Sorry for the long update. And like I said, this story has been finished for awhile. I am just posting the chapters. I might go back and re-do them in the future. This is a short chapter. It is just tying it together.

Chapter Seven: Arguments

"Mommy! Mommy!" North came running and jumped into my arms.

"Hey, baby, did you have a good time at the park?" I asked as the others came in.

"Yeahhuh. Uncley Harry is funny," Ariel laughed. "He falled down the slide."

"He did?" I looked at Harry and raised my eyebrow. "And what was Uncle Harry doing on the slide?"

"I was just helping Ariel," Harry shrugged.

"Nuhhuh, Uncley Ron said you couldn't fit and you wented up and tried." North said from my arms. I laughed and shook my head.

"Remind me again why I trusted children to watch my children?" I asked, jokingly.

"Because you love us," Harry kissed me on the cheek and walked on into the kitchen.

"Mommy, your hair is wet," North felt of my newly wet hair.

"Yes, I know, honey," I said sitting down. "Mommy just got out of the shower."

"Mommy, can we go to the zoo tomorrow?" Ariel asked.

"If you want to," I replied. "I am free tomorrow."

"Okay," North nodded. "Uncley Harry tolded us they had bigger snakes there."

"I don't like snakes," Ariel whined.

"That is because you are a dumby head," North said sticking out his tongue. I opened my mouth to say something, but didn't get it out.

"She isn't a dumby head." A voice said coming down the stairs. "Ariel, you don't have to go by the snakes if you don't like them."

"Draco!" North yelled and fled from my arms and jumped into Draco's arms. "We are going to the zoo tomorrow… will you comed with us?"

"Absolutely," Draco nodded firmly. "We can go see the snakes while the girls go and see the lions or something."

"Yeah," North said excitedly. What did Draco think he was doing?

"North, Ariel, why don't you guys go and pester Uncle Harry for ice cream before dinner." I suggested. Normally I wouldn't want to ruin their appetites, but I had to talk to Draco and Harry wouldn't give it to them… hopefully.

They both squealed and went off into the kitchen. I looked over at Draco and folded my arms. He smirked, something I hadn't seen in forever. He walked closer to me.

"I don't think it is a good idea if you come tomorrow," I said blankly. "I don't want them getting attached to you."

"Why not?" He asked, the smirk staying on his face.

"Because you don't believe you are their father and we will be leaving in a couple of weeks. I don't want them to want to stay here because of you." By the end of this he was inches away and getting closer. He waited till out lips were centimeters apart before he spoke.

"And what about you? Do you want to stay because of me?" He breathed, his breath tickling my lips. I pushed him away.

"Draco, don't," I turned my back to him, knowing I couldn't look at him.

"Don't what?" I could hear the smirk in his voice.

"You know damn well what," I didn't turn around. I could feel him getting closer.

"Hermione, I love you. I never stopped. I mean, yes, it bothers me that you are trying to lie and say these kids are mine, but I still love you…" before he could finish I walked on and into the kitchen. It really pissed me off that he still didn't believe the kids were his. I heard him follow me.

"Hermione, I wasn't done," He started.

"I was," I turned to look at him.

"Something wrong, 'Mione?" Ron asked as he dipped ice cream out.

"No," I shook my head. "Don't eat ice cream, Ronald, you will ruin your dinner."

"It isn't for me. Ariel and North wants some." Ron said stupidly.

"Ron! Don't give my kids ice cream before dinner!"

"They said you said it was all right!" Ron jumped into defense mode.

"And you believed them without checking with me first?" I asked and Ron just sighed. He put the ice cream back into the carton and put in into the freezer. I couldn't help, but laugh. I saw Draco open his mouth and I held my hand up to silence him. I motioned for him to follow me up to my room. He did so.


"You didn't let me finish," he explained.

"What else could you have to say? You just called me a liar and a slut." I folded my arms.

"Slut or liar never came from my mouth," he protested.

"No, but you don't believe those kids down there are yours. That means that I would have to have lied about them being yours and slept with another man while I was still with you to get them."


"Save it, Draco," I shook my head. "I knew coming here was a bad idea. Listen, you can come to the zoo with us tomorrow, but after that we are gone. I don't see why I even thought I could come back to this place. If I had known you were going to be here, I wouldn't have."

"You really think that is what you should do?" He questioned.

"No, I know that is what I should do. I refuse to let you hurt my kids." I stated firmly.

"Hermione, I would never do anything to hurt you or them."

"Now look who is lying," I said and turned and walked out the door. I was tired of talking to him. What happened between us shouldn't have happened. Not that I regretted it. He chased after me.

"I am not lying," he said walking close behind me.

"You already have hurt me," I said as I stopped at the stairs.

"Oh really?"

"Yes," I turn to face him. He looked angry.

"Well, for someone who has been hurt so much by me, you sure were eager to get my pants off." He noted coldly.


"Right, now you don't have an excuse. Maybe you should think things out before you go and say something to someone." He then pushed past me and walked down the stairs. How did I lose that argument?
