after the war, andromeda takes all her sadness and tucks it away close to her heart. she is good at this, has always been good at this. besides, she has someone to look out for now.
teddy grows up quickly, and each day she sees so much of nymphadora in him, so much of remus— and even a little bit of her late husband, and his namesake. he has inherited his mother’s gift, but there are some features that he cannot hide, not from her. some days, the sadness sometimes threatens to overtake her, but sadness cannot withstand the joy of a child’s presence for long.
soon, though, she sees teddy getting sad too, no matter what form he takes. and one day when teddy is old enough he asks about his parents, and she tells him all about how brave they were and how much they loved him, and the sadness slips out before she can catch herself. and as she tries to hide the tears before teddy sees, she feels a soft hand touch the side of her face, and she sees that teddy’s eyes— brown today— are almost too knowing. and as she hugs him and holds him tight against her, she just barely catches the words that escape his mouth.
"they loved you too."
