A/N: Sorry it took so long…here we go!

Draco was running through the compartments, banging doors open and then rushing away without saying anything when none of them contained Ginny.

It was his last chance. He didn't know what he had been thinking only a few minutes before. Of course he wanted to be with Ginny! She's the only one he ever imagined himself with!

He came to the last compartment, knowing that she would be in there. He slowly opened the door. It only took the four of them a minute to realize that Draco was standing in the door. All eyes were on him. Ginny looked furious.

"Malfoy, what are you doing here?" Harry asked, looking at him, fury barely masked in his eyes. He must know that he was the reason Ginny was upset.

"I was wondering if I could speak to Ginny alone," He tried to mask his insecurity but barely succeeded.


Draco turned to the girl whom had addressed him. "Gin, please, let me explain-"

She cut him off with a glare. "I hope you choke on your overwhelming arrogance." She shoved past him and made her way to the bathroom.

Draco followed her, ignoring the stares he was garnering.

"Gin, Please!"

"Please what Draco? You just made it very clear that you don't want anything to do with me."

"I was being thick, okay? I can't believe what I said to you!"

"Then why'd you say it?"

"I was just trying to protect you!"

"From what?"

"Everything that would happen if you got involved with me!"

"You don't think I know about all of that? You think I need to be protected? It's you who needs to be protected. My brother's would kill you if you hurt me."

"That is something that I never plan on doing. Ever."

Ginny stepped closer to him. "What makes you think I'd let you get close enough to hurt me?" she was now speaking so softly Draco could barely hear her.

"Gin, after all we've been through, how can we now go our separate ways? Caroline and Agatha would be crushed."

"What about you?"

"I'd be more than crushed, I'd be absolutely bashed."


"Truly and honestly."

"That still doesn't make up for what you did to me in your compartment."

"How about this?" Draco leaned forward and engulfed her in a passionate kiss.

"That might help." Ginny grinned once they parted. "So you do want to be with me?" Ginny asked tentatively.

"Of course Gin. I always have. I was scared, that's all." He kissed her on the forehead.

They started to walk back to Ginny's compartment, hand in hand. Draco stopped and said, "What will your friends do?"

"Well," Ginny giggled. "Ron and Harry will try to kill you and Hermione will take me aside and have a 'talk' with me. But don't worry," she winked at him, "I won't let them hurt you."

"Thanks darling." Draco drawled before lightly kissing her and then braving his way into Ron, Harry, and Hermione's train compartment.

"Come on Ginny! Come play with me!" Ginny smiled at the little girl who was getting bigger every day.

"Just a second Agatha," Ginny called from inside the kitchen.

"Oh honey, you have some flour on your nose." Mrs. Weasley rubbed it off with her towel and then shooed her out of the kitchen to go tend to Agatha.

"What do you think of those two Molly?"

"I think they might have a future together Caroline," Molly answered the older woman with a smile. "I must tell you, I was quite surprised when Ginny told me who her new boyfriend was. None of her brothers were too pleased." Molly Weasley laughed at the memory.

Caroline sighed, "You should have seen them last summer, it was pure madness trying to get them past despising one another. But apparently it worked," Caroline smiled demurely as she looked at the window and saw Ginny, Draco, and Agatha rolling around on the grass, laughing hysterically.

"I'm sure it took quite a lot of work!" Molly said in acknowledgement.

"Oh yes but I think Agatha did most of it."

Both the woman tended to things in the kitchen before Caroline posed her next question. "So how are your boys adapting to Draco?"

"At first they were horrible, always trying to change Ginny's mind. But of course our little Virginia wouldn't have any of it. So finally the boys came around when they saw how happy he's made Ginny."

"And how happy she's made Draco." Caroline added.

"They do seem happy don't they?" They both looked out at the window where Draco had just kissed Ginny lightly on the lips. Agatha of course protested since they weren't paying attention to her.

"I can't believe Ginny will be in her seventh year. She's getting too old!" Molly said whimsically. "What will Draco do now that he's not in school?"

"He'll help Greg with the business for now. But I think soon he'll tire of it."

"And then what will he do?"

"Don't tell him this Molly, but I think he's going to realize that teaching at Hogwarts is what he wants to do."

"Ginny would love that. She could teach like she's always wanted to."

"Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves. We don't want to jinx it. But I do think they should get married one day."


"Yeah Draco?"

They were having their annual guitar lessons. Once a week, every week. Her brothers had told her that she was crazy for wanting to learn the guitar, but now it wasn't so much about the guitar as it was about Draco's company.

Draco didn't say anything.

"Were you going to say something?"

Draco looked at her and put his guitar aside. Ginny did the same. Draco clasped her hand and whispered, "I love you."

"You love me?"

"Yes." Draco's eyes scanned the floor. "Do you…?"

Ginny grinned at his unease before kissing him.

"So is that a yes?" Draco asked.

"That is the most definite yes I have ever said in my life. I love you, Draco Malfoy."


A/N: Yep that's it, that's the end. No epilogue or sequels (unless the muses guide me) that's it. Hope you enjoyed! I'm going to be revising the first few chapters so that I'm not embarrassed by them as I am now. Nothing major is leaving or going in, I just think that they first few chapters have a few sections that are a particularly hideous breed of crap. So there you go. Make sure to check my name for new stories, you can always put me on your author alerts list but if you want me to email you when I have a new story just put your email address in the review. Thanks a bunch for reading. I can't believe it's over!

I want to thank all of my reviewers! You guys make all the difference, I hope you know how I much I love you guys!
