"Careful there," Draco said, helping his wife, Mia, along. He glanced over at his mother-in-law, Lemia, to make sure she was all right as well as they approached the front gate of the Malfoy Manor. Already there was the familiar screech of the white peacocks strutting around, much of the place now back to how it was prior to the war.

Closer to the gate, and upon recognizing Draco's magical signature, the metal gate swung openly easily. The traps and hexes dissipating for the time being.

"It's just up the walk here."

Once the gate was open, Lemia walked just a little ahead, mostly to look at the peacocks.

"Such pretty creatures," she says, looking at them with a warmth enough to melt the winter chill.

"Draco had talked about bringing some to Vane," Mia says, gladly accepting her husband's support.

"Has he? Will they be adaptable to the change in location? And they will be fine with the family, right?"

"Mother, you're going to encourage him."

Not that Mia seems to mind this now, as her last statement was said with a light laugh.

"I can certainly convince them and make arrangements," Draco replied winningly, happy at his in-law's excellent good taste.

"I was meaning more that they will be fine with the newest addition to our family," Lemia comments. "I've no intention of taking your parents' peafowl."

"I'm sure we can work something out if we wish," Mia replies.

In the meantime, there's the matter at hand, as it won't be long before they've reached the Manor door.

Draco looked nervous, "Well, they were wondering when they would be grandparents last time we spoke."

He no sooner reached the door that it opened to Narcissa standing in the doorway. She immediately came forward to draw her arms around her son.

"Draco darling, it's been too long. How are you? Are you eating well?"

He rolled his eyes, "Yes Mother, it's mostly been my own cooking in fact, along with Mia." He then stepped back, "Mother I think you remember Lemia from the wedding? Mia's mum and the previous Guildmaster of Vane?"

"I was talking about the peafowl," Lemia explains. "They will be all right to keep around with a child about?"

But it's right after these words leave her mouth that the door opens to Narcissa.

It's obvious that Draco's eating well. He's been getting something of a sympathy belly.

"I'm very happy to see you again," Lemia says to Narcissa. "Has your family been well?"

Mia's carefully stepped aside so that mother and son can have some time together. Hey, she imagines, once Cepheus is grown, she would like to have such moments for affection as well.

Though she'll probably want to go inside soon. She feels rather hot in the big fluffy coat Draco gave her.

Narcissa gave her a cool if civil glance, and nodded, "My husband and I are well, thank you."

She glanced down at Draco, briefly surprised that he actually look slightly stout for the first time in his life. She also fretted over his high hairline.

"Dear, you're not pulling this are you? You don't want to be like your great uncle."

Draco fumed, "I'm not, and can we come inside. Mia needs to sit down."

His mother nodded, and stepped back, "Very well. Your father will be joining us later."

Mia still has no idea why everyone fusses over her husband's hair. Or his waistline, for that matter. He's still as handsome as ever.

"Could you help me get my coat, dear?" she asks Draco as she steps inside, Lemia following some steps behind.

She'd rather not wrestle her way out of it if that's all right. No need to put even more strain on her back.

Draco headed over to her, and took care of her coat once they were inside.

Only to hear a sucked in breath.

"...Draco darling. Is there something you need to tell us?" Narcissa finally asked sharply.

"Oh yes, well, Happy Christmas, and in a few months, you can be expecting your grandson Cepheus," he simply remarked as he sent Mia's coat to be hung up, so he could focus on supporting her.

"Actually, more like ten weeks," Mia says, her hands on her belly as Draco helps her to a chair.

Draco remarked, "Well that would be a few months. It's still a little over two after all," He replied, standing near her.

His mother blinked at this.

"Draco, is there a reason you couldn't have Owled us this? How are we supposed to prepare."

"I wanted to tell you in person, and I didn't know how you would react." He was worried they wouldn't want to accept the grandchildren, or question on whether they would be wizards or not.

"A few sounds like more than just over two, though."

She carefully slips her shoes off.

Lemia, meanwhile, is looking at the young couple and finds herself sympathizing with Narcissa.

"Wait, so I knew all this time and your own mother didn't?"

Mother-in-law shakes her head a bit at Draco.

"You know how busy we've been!" Draco exclaimed to Lemia, and added to his own mother, "I have a great deal of duties and responsibilities now, Mother. It's not that easy for me to just go through the door and Apparate over."

"There is no need to shout at me," Lemia replies with a soft kindness. "It wasn't so long ago that I was working the same job."

"Do we really need to do this now?" Mia asks.

From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
Draco sighed, "No dear."

Narcissa continued to glare at him, "You still could have Owled, you obviously don't do so enough."

"I thought he had," Mia admitted. "You did let your parents know that we were coming, didn't you?"

"Now look," Lemia starts. "At this point, what's past is past and the stress of worrying about it isn't going to do us or it any good. Why bicker when we can focus on our grand-?"

And then what Draco said earlier catches up to the former Guildmaster.

"Grandson? You know already?"

Perplexed Lemia is Perplexed.

From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
"Oh he did mention the visit and there would be big news. He just neglected to give us a hint of what it would be."

There was a sniff from his mum about her drama king son.

Draco glanced toward Lemia, "Yes well, we had an idea that was later confirmed shall we say?"

"Well, we thought the news itself might be a pleasant surprise since you had asked about grandchildren the last time we visited," Mia comments.

Which, if Narcissa remembers, was definitely less than nine months ago.

"Confirmed?" Lemia asks. "I remember Mia saying that you were both hoping for a boy, but how?"

"The pictures we received from Doctor Sandhu," Mia chimes in. "My ultrasounds."

"Wait, those 'ultrasound' things the both of you and Rabastan have been talking about are actually pictures of the baby?!"

Pardon Lemia. She has to go collect her brain cells. She'll be right back.

"I know it sounds rather odd. It's one of those Muggle devices, but it worked well I suppose."

gorgonfondness: (alien fetus!)
From: [personal profile] gorgonfondness
"How?" Lemia asks, still perplexed.

"It's kind of like an echo?" Mia says, getting out the most recent ultrasound. "The device is put against me and it makes sounds that bounce off of the baby. It then takes the information it gets back and makes the picture."

Lemia goes over and looks at the picture with her daughter, not able to suppress a little gasp of amazement.

"Oh, look at him," she whispers. "He's just perfect..."

Mia smiles and, looking up at Narcissa, asks, "Would you like to see?"

Date: 2009-12-26 04:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
Narcissa blinked with confusion, and gestured to it.

"See? That Muggle picture? Is that why it doesn't move?"

Draco explained, "Yes, they don't move on that, but when you look at the screen while the scan is happening, well I could see our son moving."

Date: 2009-12-26 04:49 am (UTC)
gorgonfondness: (alien fetus!)
From: [personal profile] gorgonfondness
"Pictures that don't move are muggle?" Lemia softly asks.

Mia just gives a shrug and answers back, "Well, Blue Star magic is different from Lunar's magic."

The former Guildmaster accepts this and goes back to admiring her grandson.

"What was it that you called him again? His name?" she asks.

"Cepheus. Draco and I want to name the baby Cepheus."

Mia puts a hand to her belly, feeling him kick.

Date: 2009-12-26 05:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
He explained, "Wizard pictures have special Charms and spells used so they can move. Our paintings interact with us."

He then came closer to Mia, "Is our Cepheus awake then, darling?"

Lemia will have to study this. It's all very new to her and she's intrigued.

"He is," Mia says, smiling at her husband. "I wonder if he knows there's someone here to meet him."

Date: 2009-12-27 02:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
Narcissa commented approvingly even as she found the ultrasound picture odd, "A proper name for a Malfoy." She glanced at it along with Lemia.

"Well, still I trust he should be in good health when he is born?"

Draco gestured to his mum, "Mum, would you like to meet him?"

She raised a pale eyebrow at that, but then approached. She then carefully placed her thin pale and manicured hand gently on Mia's stomach.

Date: 2009-12-27 02:41 am (UTC)
gorgonfondness: (alien fetus!)

"The doctor said that he looks just fine from the ultrasounds and I haven't had any health problems."

Mia smiles at her mother-in-law while the baby kicks towards her hand, feeling around with what magic he has for his grandmother.
