After Fred’s funeral the adults had gathered to tell their remembrances downstairs and the students still in Hogwarts and the recent graduates gathered in Ginny’s room to share their tales, when all was said and done and most all the guest had left, everyone gathered downstairs to help with the cleanup. It was then that Bill and Fleur to cheer everyone up decided to make their big announcement. Directing his parents to the couch after having requested them to take a seat, Bill put his arm around his blushing bride and said “You are to become grandparents”. Everyone heartily congratulated the couple.
“Now we can do to you what your grandparents did to us” laughed Mr. Weasley putting his arm about Mrs. Weasley as she blushed profusely.
“What did your parents do?” asked both Bill and Fleur in unison sharing anxious looks.
“Nothing to devilish” Mr. Weasley began with a mischievous sparkle in his eye.
Mrs. Weasley continued, “Grandparents get to spoil while the parents are the ones to use that horrible word. Bill and Fleur exchange anxious glances once again as Mrs. Weasley said, “And that word is NO. We also have to say things like eat all your veggies, time to wash up, and its bedtime.”
“They’d give you anything you asked for, let you stay up as late as you wanted, feed you sugary treats till you were spinning about little tops and once they were too tired to deal with anymore they’d give you back to us to deal with. Then we’d have to try and calm you down and get you to stop bouncing off the walls and get you to go to bed.
As for Fred and George, those two never wanted to wear clothes, your grandparents obliged them even at the age of 9. Made Percy cry, thought he would be able to go to Hogwarts’s because he thought Diagon Alley would be closed and he wouldn’t be able to get to Madam Malkin’s for his robes or Ollivander’s for his wand.
