AN: Well this is it… the epilogue. I hope you enjoyed the story. Thanks to all my reviewers. You’re awesome. Let me know what you think of the story.


“Will, can you explain why we have to be at this function again?” whined Spike.

William sighed. “Because you have to be properly introduced to society. It is only becoming of my mates.”

“And you wanted to dress us up all pretty like,” added Kiara knowingly.

“And I wanted to dress you up all pretty like,” agreed William. “And did I ever succeed.” He leered at his mates. They really were quite delicious. Kiara was wearing a stunning green dress that contrasted nicely to her currently red hair and Spike was wearing black leather pants and a blood red dress shirt. William was of course wearing proper dress robes. They were quite a sight.

“Now be nice and go mingle,” said Will and took of to talk to some old lady.

Kiara and Spike got some wine and observed the room. Soon Draco joined them. He explained who some of the people were and commented on their attire. He was half-way done with a particularly vicious criticism of a certain old lady’s dress, when he was suddenly interrupted by Spike.

“Never mind that. Just tell me who the rather delicious young man who just entered the hall is.”

Kiara looked in the direction of the door and saw a red-headed man with a ponytail and a fang hanging from one earring. Draco snorted.

“That’s one of the Weasleys. Charlie I think… or maybe Bill. I never could keep up with all of the names.”

Kiara just smiled at the mischievous look that entered Spike’s eyes. Her smile widened when she felt a pair of pale hands wrap themselves around her.

“What’s he plotting?” asked William.

Spike looked at them and Kiara sighed.

“No, Spike.”

The vampire just smiled innocently. “Why not?”

Draco and William looked confused. Will went to stand next to his cousin. “What’re they going on about?”

“I don’t know,” answered Draco. “Spike saw one of the Weasleys enter the room and got that look. I have no idea what it means.”

“Which Weasley?” asked William.

“The one who works at Gringotts,” said Draco. “He’s standing next to the fountain.”

The older Malfoy looked at Bill for a few moments and then smiled lecherously. Kiara saw this and sighed again. “Not you too.”

“Why not?”

Spike smiled victoriously. “See. He doesn’t mind, pet. It’d be fun.”

“For fucks sake,” muttered Kiara. “We are not having a foursome with the Weasley.”

Only years of Malfoy training prevented Draco from spitting out his wine or shouting ‘WHAT?’ at the top of his lungs. Instead he calmly swallowed his drink and only then shouted ‘WHAT?’ in a quiet and non-attention grabbing way.

The trio ignored him. “Come on, luv,” said William. “Look at him. He’s gorgeous.”

“And he’s a ginger. He’ll balance our blond to red ratio,” reasoned Spike.

Kiara took a few minutes to observe Spike’s chosen pray. She had to admit he was quite fetching. And he looked strong and muscular. She turned back to Spikes who were watching her hopefully.

“Fine,” she said. The blonds grinned.

‘The things I do for them,’ thought Kiara.

She smiled as Spike stalked towards Bill and dragged him on the dance floor for a rather sensual waltz. Then she allowed William to drag her to the dance floor and they joined Spike and Bill.

Kiara smiled lovingly. ‘They’re worth it.’


And so Kiara got her mates back. They did not however live happily ever after. They snarked, they argued about hair colour and just who Billy Idol stole his look from, they separated and got back together, they corrupted new generations of Malfoys and Weasleys alike. And when death finally caught up with them it came silently in the middle of the night as they slept snuggled together*. And that is certainly not a bad way to go.

*Before anyone argues that vampires live forever… I have a theory. It states that vampires (were they to exist) don’t live forever, but rather live so long that to a mortal it seems like forever. But considering Spikes share their life energy with Kiara, it would stand to reason they would die sooner than an average vampire. They still lived ridiculously long, so don’t worry about it.
