James seemed to be shocked by Harry's admission, and Harry couldn't help but grin. He nodded in response, even as James cut himself off. It felt good to share with his son his own joys, even if Ginny was reluctant to do so. He knew he'd made mistakes, that he had to do things her way as much as possible. But he didn't save the wizarding world to get steamrolled over every decision. After all, there were two sides to every relationship. "Not surprised, yeah, but in the end I wish he could see it was for the best. For us to all be happy," said Harry slowly. He offered James a drink, who thankfully agreed. Harry busied himself fixing it up when Ginny reentered the room, and pointedly ignored him. He huffed a great sigh, feeling more like a teenager than ever as Ginny fussed over James before inviting him to join in the living room.
Ultimately, it was James' encouraging smile that bolstered Harry's confidence to follow his wife and son into the sitting room, leaning against the doorframe. Albus mentioned something about the potioneer who created Aware Wolf, and Harry was relieved that Lily seemed keen to take it. He could never know with her - she seemed to like being a werewolf, strangely. What a change it was from back in his youth, where werewolves were outcasts. "Sienna Linslee, right? She runs Slug and Jiggers. Been very helpful in a few scrapes," added Harry, more to say something somewhat useful than anything. "Glad to know our Lily is in good hands," said Harry.
Harry's gaze drifted to his wife, who still looked sinful in that blue dress. It really suited her shape and her vibrant hair, and though he wanted to rain compliments on her, he held back. He shifted awkwardly on his feet, sighing. Should they make an official proclamation? Write out fancy invitation cards calling their children to a formal meeting in which they would share their news that they had reconciled? Well, if they still had. Harry found himself drifting over to Ginny, and placed a tentative hand on her shoulder. "Ginny..." he said, his voice full of meaning. Now was the chance to put things right. To do things her way, as she so desired. Harry was done fighting.
