And the overgrown gardens were just part of the mess. The security spells were faint and weak. Draco didn't even have to do countercharms for him and Mia to pass through the gates. Just inside the doors, there was dust and cobwebs everywhere.

"Sodding hell, the Ministry must have just squatted on this. Too arsed to bother cleaning it?" He scowled as he commented to his wife, and poked a dust bunny with his walking staff.

"Strange they would just leave it," she says. "I mean, your world makes use of cleaning spells more than my world does."

Mia stretches her arms out and cracks her knuckles.

"Well, darling, you do what you can with your spells and I'll give it that supposedly-sought-after woman's touch."

"Probably because they didn't care. See it as only a place for Death Eaters." Draco then started zapping the dust, and beginning some cleaning spells.

Mia ties her hair back and starts cleaning where-ever Draco isn't.

"It's all right. We'll make this place a home again, a place your parents will want to live."

"I'll give you a proper tour once we've straightened up," He then focused more on cleaning. And the conversation turned only to point out which rooms needed to be covered still, and what spots were missed. Slowly the Manor was looking more in keeping with how it used to be as Draco's boyhood home.

Mia's doing what she can to help, but Draco and his magic make the cleaning so much faster.

She's busy dusting a window sill when she peers out and listens.

"Draco? I think there's an automobile outside. It's playing strange music."

"Strange music?" Draco drew closer to get a good look. Oh.

"Be right back, luv." He then went to step outside.

"What? I can't come along?"

She's already started to follow him.

"If you want to?" He waited with his hand out to her.

Mia gladly takes his hand and gives him a kiss before they continue to the automobile playing the strange music.

Outside, and down a little ways was the ice cream truck parked with large pictures showing ice lollys and various frozen treats.

Somehow, in spite of all of her time at Milliways, Mia has escaped knowledge of frozen novelties until now. Her exposure to ice cream was simply that: ice cream. If we wanted to get fancy, then she could tell you about the ice cream soda, but that's it.

"What are those pictures on the side, Draco?"

"Frozen treats, ice cream, ice lollys, and others."

"Ice cream? You mean this auto just drives around and delivers ice cream to people?"

She gets a tighter grip and tugs him so they can run over.

"Let's get some! We deserve a break after all of that hard work we've put into the house."

Mia stands to wait in line behind the gathered kids, trying to make up her mind about what she wants and getting out her purse.

"Good thing I brought some muggle money," she whispers to Draco.

Draco resisted the urge to facepalm.

"Yes, brilliant of you, Mia." He debated on what looked good. Maybe some frozen custard.

Why would Draco facepalm at his wife's brilliance?

The nearby children are watching as the adults go about making their ice cream purchases. Adults aren't supposed to like these things, right? They like mushy stuff and vegetables.

Mia gets a sundae cone with plenty of chocolate and nuts, paying for hers and Draco's.

"Mmm, this is really good," she says between bites, offering Draco a taste from the cone.

Facepalming at his own foolishness for not thinking of money. Good thing his wife's so practical.

Draco leaned forward for a few licks before leaning even closer for a quick kiss.

"Delicious." No he doesn't care that some of the children were staring and making face. They can bugger off for all he cared right now.

Not to mention the chorus of, "Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww!"

Mia giggles at them, and the kiss.

"Oh, you shouldn't be spoiling your dinner," she tells the kids before they walk away.

"Speaking of which, we should get to work on that soon. How about we practice making that filet mignon you want for your birthday?"

She walks back with him to the Manor, her arm in his.

Draco grinned, considering, "Sounds excellent."

"I'm sure my clever husband is going to impress me in the kitchen. Perhaps this time around, it will be my turn to distract you from cooking and cause you to accidentally char our food."

She takes a careless bite out of her cone, meaning she has to put her lips on top of the hole she's created to catch the ice cream.

Mia certainly means to be innocent, but it's not coming across that way.

Draco was going to respond but the way his wife's mouth moved over the cone... Well all the blood was going away from his brain at the moment, leaving him quite speechless.

She looks up at him once the potential ice cream disaster has been averted.

"Hmm?"

She blinks, recognizing that look.

"Oh goodness. It has been a little while, hasn't it? But remember, it's been a little while for me, too."

Mia leans closer to him, and says, "Perhaps I should wait for your birthday, and then you could..." whisper whisper whisper whisper "...for me, and then we'll..." whisper whisper whisper whisper "....and after that, I'll..." whisper whisper whisper whisper "...for you. How does all of that sound?"

Draco made a tiny noise in the back of his throat, before kissing her.

Mia kisses back.

.....and accidentally smashes the rest of her ice cream cone into Draco's chest as she does.
