Letters and Care Packages

Dear Ginny,

I'm putting this right next to your pillow. Don't knock it off! I think you'd better take a look at this note when you wake up. Someone slid it under the door while we were asleep last night. Sorry. Couldn't help reading it. Also, I couldn't agree more with it!


P.S. It's about time!

By Harry Potter (who really means it)

1. Funny. She makes me laugh. A lot.

2. Smart. She found out how to get me to the Burrow. And she's got some great pranks. That portable Hex was excellent. Dudders cried like a baby.

3. Loyal. No explanation needed.

4. Friendly and caring. I would've been bored out of my mind without her.

5. Amazing cook. I would've starved without her too.

6. Great storyteller. She can dish the blackmail on her brothers.

7. Really pretty. I like her hair. It's cool.

8. Fantastic Quidditch player.

9. Good listener. I could tell her anything.

10. My best friend. I hope she will be for a long time.


I didn't forget. First Hogsmeade trip. You, me, ice-cream?



You got it.


Dear Ginny,

Okay, okay…so maybe you got Harry to the Burrow. Maybe you really terrified his cousin. So maybe the kid wrote you a big mushy list of why he thinks you're great. So maybe he asked you to Hogsmeade. And maybe he wants to buy you some ice-cream. But you do realize that NONE of this means anything? There's no value to any of it.

In case you didn't know, he's craving ice-cream, not your company. He's just asking you to save face. And what are you going to do? You don't have a clue how to act. You've only talked to him through letters. You have no idea what it's really like to be with him on your own. You realize you are just going to embarrass yourself. You realize—


I'm letting you know that I refused to finish reading your last letter. Your words mean nothing to me anymore. I don't care about them. At all. You (and others) have been so very helpful at discouraging me, emphasizing my faults, and reciting all of the stupid things I've done. I can't tell you how many times I've cried because of you because I don't even know.

You have taught me a lot, but I'm going to have to ask you to stop. But before I go, I wanted to let you know that I got to know someone really well this summer. And maybe it was just through words. And he did ask me out for ice-cream. And maybe I don't know what it's going to be like, talking to him face-to-face. But I'll figure it out. I've got time. It's just something you have to learn, I guess. But I can't wait.

And do you know the best part of it? Even though I'll embarrass myself and I'll want to run away and hide, I have a new best friend. He likes me and I like him. And maybe someday he'll be something more. But right now, I'm content to just be with him and my family.

So if you'll just excuse me, I have to go play Quidditch with my new best friend.

Don't bother writing again. You won't be answered. I can promise you that!

All the best,
Ginny Weasley
