Continued from hereFred wasn't sure what Hermione had in mind so she allowed her to lead. When both of them were lying on the bed, she smiled a little. "I think it's brilliant, sweetie," she whispered before parting Hermione's thighs.She knew there would soon come a time when she wouldn't be able to have sex. At her last doctor's appointment, the doctor had talked about the possibility of Fred having to spend the final several weeks of her pregnancy in bed. The thought annoyed her but she would do anything for their children.Leaning forward, Fred carefully ran her tongue through Hermione's wet folds. She always liked tasting the other woman and groaned. Running her tongue up further, she found Hermione's clit and eagerly started to suck on it as she pressed herself against Hermione's tongue."I love you," she softly whispered before going back to what she was doing. Fred knew she would love Hermione for the rest of their lives, no matter what happened.
Hermione groaned softly against Fred's inner thigh as she felt her wife's tongue against her clit. God, it felt so good when she did that. Squirming slightly, she shifted so that it would be easier for her then continued kissing her own way up to Fred's core. "I love you too. Always will," she told her, reaching up to take Fred's hand in hers while beginning to lick and suck. She hummed slightly, feeling the waves of pleasure from that vibrate through their connection.It felt right to have it back. It was right. Hermione knew she and Fred were connected and always would be, so to have it return on their wedding night, the first night of the rest of the lives together, was the best gift they could have received, save for the health and safety of their unborn children.With the connection between them, it wasn't long before Hermione felt the pleasure building within her in an intense way she hadn't experienced in months. Moaning, she tightened her grip on her wife's hand as her body began to tighten more and more. Soon, it was almost too much, and she felt like she might just shut down, unable to handle the sensations."Fred!" she suddenly gasped as her orgasm went rushing through her, causing her to tremble hard.
Fred shuddered again and laid there for a moment. It was perfect. Her wife was perfect. With a sigh, she moved around on the bed so she was face-to-face with her wife. Fred ran her fingers through Hermione's curls and smiled."That was pretty damn awesome," she murmured before capturing her lips. She groaned as she tasted herself and Hermione in their kiss.Breaking apart, she smiled. "Thank you for making me incredibly happy," she whispered.
"Hermione?""Hmmm?" she asked, opening her eyes and looking over at Rupert."Are you hungry? We can stop somewhere and get something to eat before we press on for home."They were heading back to Los Angeles after helping Buffy and the others to defeat the first. The spell casting had left them both knackered, especially Hermione, so it had been a while before they had been able to return home, even though they were missing Wesley and Fred desperately. They had also been worried about missing the birth of the twins. So far, no news, which they hoped was a good thing and meant that they'd be able to get home before they came."I am a bit hungry," she admitted. "Maybe we could--."Before she could finish her thought, Rupert's mobile started ringing. Since he was driving, Hermione grabbed it from the center console and looked at it, seeing that it was the house number. Flipping the phone opened, she answered it."Fred, love?""No, it's Wesley. Hermione, Fred's gone into labor. The babies are coming!""What - now?!""I don't now. Soon, I guess. Her water's broke. Where are you?""Fred's gone into labor," Hermione told Rupert, and she swore she felt the car speed up. "How far are we from home?""A little over an hour," he told her."We're about an hour out," she repeated to Wesley. "Although the way Rupert's driving now, we'll probably be there in forty-five minutes!""Okay. I'll tell Fred. Just be careful. We'd rather have you here late than not at all. We love you.""We love you too." Hermione hung up the phone and looked at Rupert, almost vibrating in excitement in her seat. "The babies are coming!""That they are, love! That they are!" he answered as they shot down the road.
Having a baby wasn't the most pleasant thing Fred had ever felt. Whenever a contraction hit, it felt like someone was ripping her insides out. It was horrible and she wanted to curl up on the bed and just cry, while hoping the babies just fell out.She'd been afraid it would feel like this but everyone assured her the pain was worth it. Fred knew it was going to be worth it. They were going to have two wonderful babies but at the moment, all she could think about was the pain."Rupert and Hermione are on their way and so is the witch from the coven," Wesley said as he jogged back into the room. "We need to get you to the birthing room."Fred nodded and allowed Wesley to walk her to the room they had set up for the twins' birth. She sat on the bed and let Wesley help her put on the special gown they'd been given. She then laid back on the bed."Does it hurt, love?" Wesley asked as he got into the bed with her. It was big enough for all of them so they could all be there for the birth."Yes," Fred whispered as tears came to her eyes. "What if I mess it up, Wesley?"Wesley lightly smiled. "You won't," he said as he pulled her close.Fred allowed him to hold her as they waited for their lovers to come home. The pain was still there but having Wesley there helped. And, when they heard the car pull up, both of them smiled."We haven't missed it, have we?" Rupert asked, jogging in."No," Wesley said."Hermione-ow!" Fred said as she was rattled by another contraction.
Even though she knew Rupert was going as fast as he dared, to Hermione, it still didn't seem fast enough. Her wife was in labor, about to give birth to their twins, and they weren't there yet. She knew Fred wasn't alone - Wesley was there - but it didn't feel right that they might miss this, not after everything they had been through together in the last several months. The four of them had been there for the conception. The four of them should be there for the births.Also, she could feel a ghost of the pain Fred was feeling with each contraction through their connection and wanted to be there to soothe her and hold her and do what she could for the woman she loved.Finally, they reached the area where their home was located. Hermione almost wanted to just apparate to the house from there, but she forced herself to stay still. The last block seemed the longest, but at last, they saw home and Rupert pulled up into the drive.Jumping out of the car, Hermione reached back and grabbed her bag with her wand, wanting it just in case. She followed Rupert into the house, hurrying back to the room they had set up for the birth and entering just in time to hear Fred call for her before crying out in pain. The contraction pain reverberated much more strongly through their connection now that they were in the same room, and Hermione let out a soft gasp."I'm here," she said, rushing over to the bed as Wesley slipped off so she could move into the spot where he had been sitting. Wrapping her arm around her wife, she kissed Fred's forehead and took her head. "I'm here, love. Share it with me if you need to, all right? I missed you so much. I'm glad we didn't miss this.""How long until the birther from the coven is here?" Rupert asked Wesley, reaching out to take his husband's hand and pull him close. It was the first time all of them had seen each other in over a week."Soon. I wouldn't think she'd be far behind you."Just then the doorbell rang."That must be her," Wesley said as he hurried to answer the door.
Fred threw her arms around Hermione and held her tight. She'd missed her wife a lot and was glad she was there. The pain seemed to lessen with her there and Fred knew it was because Hermione was taking some of it. It made her feel bad but at the moment, she couldn't control herself."It hurts," she whispered.Just as the doorbell, and Wesley ran out to answer it, another contraction hit. Fred moaned in pain and suddenly the bedside lamp exploded."Bloody hell," Rupert muttered before doing a quick spell to clean it up."Sorry," Fred said as tears came to her eyes. She didn't know she would break things during labor.Wesley ran back into the room, Alexandria on his heels. "I'm going to need you to roll to your back so I can see if you're crowning," she told Fred.Fred did as she was told as more pain shot through her body. She looked down at Alexandria and waited to see what she said."You're about ready to push. Sometimes twins come faster than single babies," she explained before clicking her tongue. "There's a lot of magic in the air. Hermione, I'm going to need you to absorb some of Fred's magic. Rupert and Wesley, you're going to catch the babies.""I-I..." Wesley started to stammer."It's all right, love," Rupert said before guiding him down to the end of the bed."She'll be ready to push with the next contraction," the birther said.Fred felt another one coming and she bared down to push.
"I know, love," Hermione whispered, holding onto Fred tightly as she took what pain she could into herself. She would gladly do anything for her wife and their children, so she didn't mind doing this, even if it wasn't much.When the lamp exploded, Hermione looked over it before turning back to Fred, shaking her head while Rupert handled clean up. "It's all right, Fred. We can replace that. Give me more if you need to." She gripped her hand tighter and glanced up when Alexandria came in with Wesley. Hermione stayed where she was as she examined Fred.At Alexandria's instruction, Hermione nodded and began concentrating on taking the pain and magic both within her and pushing it down as best she could. It wasn't easy, especially since the contractions were coming closer and closer together, but she dampened it the best she could. She knew she was going to need to cast several spells when this was over to get rid of the excess magic she was storing, but it didn't matter. Getting Fred through this did.As Wesley worried a bit over doing the right thing, Rupert guided him to stand with Alexandria, ready to catch the babies as they came out."I can see the head of one," Rupert said, looking up at them with tears in his eyes."Keep pushing Fred," Alexandria told her. "That's it.""It's a boy," Wesley said as he took the baby into his hands. "We have a son!""Oh, Fred," Hermione whispered. "Oh, he's beautiful."
Fred whimpered out in pain, knowing Hermione was taking some of it from her. It didn't hurt as much as it did before but it still hurt. "I love you," she whispered as she looked at her wife before more pain ran through her body.At Alexandria's urging, Fred pushed as hard as she could. Soon the room was filled with the cries of a baby. "A boy?" she asked. Wesley set the baby on her chest and Fred looked down at their son. "Hello, little one."She stroked his cheek a few times before Alexandria took him to clean him up. She was about to finish when her head popped up and she looked over at them. "Your son is a wizard," she said."Pardon?" Rupert asked, moving over to where Alexandria was standing."I'm sensing magic from him. A natural wizard. I wondered if one, or both of them would have magic, considering Hermione's and Fred's connection," she explained.Fred was about to say something when another pain shot through her body. She automatically pushed, glad Rupert had moved over to catch the second baby."Push, love," Wesley said with a grin.Fred pushed and soon there was another cry in the room."It's a girl," Rupert said as he stood with the baby and placed her on Fred's chest. "We have a beautiful daughter also."Fred looked up at all of them and gave a watery grin. "Am I done now?" she asked as she stroked their daughter's cheek.
Hermione looked up from where their son was sitting on Fred's chest to Alexandria when she said that she sensed magic from him. "Are you sure?" she said before she could stop herself, knowing that of course she was undoubtedly sure. It made sense.She looked over, touching the baby's head as Alexandria used magic to cut the cord. When Fred started pushing again, she quickly took him off her so she could concentrate on delivering the second baby and continued to take the pain and magic with her as best she could.When the second baby arrived, Hermione felt tears coming to her eyes. A boy and a girl. They had a boy and a girl. Oh, both of them were so amazing and tiny, and they looked just like Fred."Almost, Fred," Alexandria told her after cutting their little girl's cord as well. "We just have the afterbirth to take care of. Perhaps Rupert and Wesley could clean the babies up while Hermione helps with that."Hermione nodded, letting Wesley take their son, and she helped Alexandria with the final step, using magic to get rid of the afterbirth and clean Fred up. She could still feel magic buzzing through her, but she could handle it for now."Are you all right?" she asked her wife, kissing her head as Rupert and Wesley brought the babies, clean and wrapped in blankets, back in. They moved to sit with them on the bed while Alexandria excused herself to give them a bit of privacy. "Oh, they're so perfect."
Fred frowned when Alexandria said she wasn't done yet. All she wanted to do was sleep and hold her babies. Nodding, she handed their daughter over and helped as Alexandria and her wife got the afterbirth cleaned up. She was still sore but the use of magic made her feel a little better."I'm tired but good," Fred said, answering her wife's question.She grinned when Wesley slipped their daughter into her arms. Oh, she was beautiful and perfect. Both of them were. And, it suddenly dawned on Fred what had just happened. She'd given birth and was now a mother. "Oh," Fred whispered as tears came to her eyes. "I'm a mother. Oh, God, I'm a mother. I never thought I would be because...but I'm a mother now. They're going to want things from me like...breast milk. What if they don't work?""Fred, love," Rupert said as he reached out and softly touched her temple. "Take a deep breath. It'll be all right. All of us are here to help so there's nothing to worry about, all right, love?""They don't even have names," she whispered."Then we can name them, sweetheart," Wesley said with a smile.Fred looked down at their daughter and studied her face. She giggled a little when the baby yawned. "I've always liked the name Brennan for a girl. And, she sorta looks like a Brennan." She looked up at all of them. "What do y'all think of Brennan?"
Hermione leaned her head against Fred's as she worred about being a good mother and giving them things. Rupert was right - they'd be there to help each other. And she knew that Fred was going to be a wonderful mother. She wished she could help her more, wondered if there was a way.But they could start with naming them. The rest would come, and they'd be there for each other through it all."I think Brennan's a beautiful name," Hermione said as Rupert slipped their son back into her arms. She smiled down at him while Rupert and Wesley agreed to Brennan for their daughter's name."Then Brennan it is. And what about this little man here?" Wesley asked, reaching over and stroking the palm of the baby's hand with his little finger. "Should we stick with a B for him too?""How about Benjamin," Rupert suggested."Bren and Ben?" Wesley asked with a raised eyebrow, grinning at his husband."I like that name quite a lot," Hermione said, looking over at her wife. "What do you think, love? Brennan and Benjamin?"
At Rupert's suggestion of a name, Fred nodded her head. "I think Benjamin is wonderful," she said before looking at Wesley. "And it'd be Bree and Ben." She gave him a playful grin as he laughed a little.Alexandria came back to the room and they moved Fred and the babies to the master bedroom. Rupert and Wesley brought in two bassinets,knowing the babies would end up sleeping in there for a few weeks before they were moved to the nursery.Once Fred was in a different gown, Alexandria took Ben from her and placed him in a bassinet. "We're going to try breast feeding. I want to see if you can do it before I leave." She explained what Fred had to do and soon Fred was trying to feed their daughter."I don't think it's working," she said with a frown."Wesley, why don't you massage her breasts for a moment. That'll help," Alexandria said.Wesley did as he was asked and soon Fred felt a sensation running through her. "I think she's feeding," she whispered as she looked down at Brennan.Alexandria leaned over and nodded her head. "That she is. Continued to feed her until she's no longer hungry and then we'll see if your son will be as willing," she said as she stood back a little.
Once they were settled into the master bedroom, Hermione sat down with Fred while Alexandria instructed her in what to do to breastfeed the children. There was a bit of a hiccup, but it seemed that massaging Fred's breasts helped. She'd have to remember that, she thought as she watched Bree latch onto her mother and begin to suckle.She swore she felt her own breasts aching a little, wondering if she was feeling the ghost through her connection with Fred. Reaching up, she absently rubbed one slightly and frowned when she felt dampness on her fingertips. She looked down, a soft gasp issuing from her when she saw the patches of wetness dotting her blouse."Erm...Alexandria, is this...? I'm leaking," she said softly."What?" The other woman turned to her and frowned before indicating that Hermione should open her shirt so she could examine her more closely."I can't--I didn't--is this some sort of sympathy reaction for Fred?" she asked. "Because of our connection?"Alexandria squeezed around Hermione's nipple a bit, causing some more fluid to come out, her eyes widening in amazement. "Rupert, can you bring Benjamin over here," she requested. "Hermione, I think this is because of your connection with Fred, but I don't think it's simply sympathy-related. I want you to try feeding your son.""But surely I can't..." Hermione protested as Rupert put Ben into her arms. A moment later, however, the baby was nuzzling against her, and before long he seemed to be feeding. "I..."She looked at Fred in amazement."I've never seen anything like this," Alexandria said. "But this is a good thing. It'll mean that Fred's system won't be taxed as much, and that's better for both her and the babies."
