A/N: Hello to everyone. This is my new fanfic, and some of you may HATE it. But no worries, right? Thank god this is fanfic, so it's a world of illusion and where we can make up things as we go.
Please enjoy and I will end this with my usual quote: don't pelt me with rotten eggs until my whole story is complete ok? I need to wash out my plastic body bag since the last pelting
Finally. She could see the castle towers looming ahead and she sank back into her seat. She had chosen to arrive by a
muggle invention, the car. One she had used to her best advantage while staying in London. It was a mini Ford coupe and as
usual, she had allowed her father tinkle with the mechanisms and it could fly. She stepped on the gas and the clouds slowly
parted. She made a slow descend, making sure to avoid the Whooping Willow. She smiled to herself as she remembered her
brother, Ron's exaggerated version of his own descend on the tree while he was in his second year. She could remember it
well. She had been extremely exhilarated to get her Hogwarts letter of acceptance that year. She could also remember the
stab of disappointment she had felt when she scanned the Great Hall for her brother's freckled face and the bespectacled
boy, Harry Potter. The boy she had crushed on for most of her first and second year.
They were now good friends and Hermione just had her first baby. A beautiful baby girl by the name Divine Rosenta Potter.
The Potters were elated by the arrival of young Divine.
Ginny sighed as she felt the tyres touch the ground softly. She had come home. To another year at Hogwarts. She was the
teacher of Defence Against the Dark Arts. A position which had been offered to her when she had just completed her Auror
training. Ginny proved to be an expert in defence. She could make up a perfect bat-boogey hex while she was younger but
no one had ever expected her to come in first in the International Competition of Defence in her seventh year. It was
probably due to Harry's and Hermione's effort in starting Dumbledore's Army. Those who had participated benefited
greatly. And this was obvious in Ginny's case.
However, it was not the prestigious name of the school or her fame which made her accept this position. It was a question of
who? And she didn't know what his reaction was going to be. She had requested that her identity be kept undisclosed until
she arrived at the school.
She was going to have a ball of a time this year. She knew it.
With that in mind, she lifted her bags out of the luggage compartment. And with a purposeful air, made her way up the stairs
leading to the Great Hall.
"Ah...Just in time. Let us welcome our new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Ginny Weasley."
Dumbledore's voice boomed out from the front of the Great Hall. Claps sounded as Ginny made her way to the teachers'
table. She grinned sheepishly as she peered at the Gryffindor table. The new comers looked terrified, like herself on her first
day. The sky above reflected a full moon and a blanket of stars.
The professors were still the same as she had left them. Professor Sprout looked the same in her yellow hat sitting atop her
ruffled grey hair. Her eyes twinkled as she shook Ginny's hand. "Glad to be back as one of us eh, dearie?" She winked. The
tiny potions professor's beard seemed to have grown a few inches longer and he was glad to see one of his favorite students
return to school. Hagrid peered over his bushy beard and gave her a thumbs up sign. "Drop in my hut la'er fur a cuppa?" She
grinned at him and nodded. Professor Trelawney and Professor Firenze were teaching Divination on alternate days and this
suited all the students to perfection. She had heard that several girls in the fifth year were infatuated by Firenze and had to be
repeatedly chased out from his classroom after it had been adjourn. This was believable as Firenze had white blond hair and
his whole body was a gleaming white, resembling a unicorn's. She shook both professors' hands while smiling at Professor
Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall, who was seated besides him. "Harry sends his regards, Professor. He said that he'll
be sending an owl once he gets his family settled down." They exchanged a smile before Ginny made her way to the end of
the table. A sullen looking Professor Snape was sitting by himself, and not making conversation with any of the other
"Professor Snape. I hope to be under your guidance while I'm here. I look forward to learning the ropes from you," She
smiled nervously and twitched her hands. He looked up, a frown ceasing his forehead. "Don't bother. You managed to make
it in here by yourself, didn't you?" His cold voice sounded bitter. Her blood started to boil. This was one of the setbacks of
being a redhead. They got angry rather easily. Before she could retort, Professor Dumbledore intervened. "Now, now,
Professor Snape. You will scare off my newest employee if you carry on talking in this manner." The frown on his forehead
deepened. "In fact," Professor Dumbledore carried on happily, oblivious to the increasing tension. "I have to insist that you
be Ginny Weasley's mentor. I was going to appoint Professor McGonagall but unfortunately, her health has not been in top
form. I leave this task to you then, Professor." He turned back and stood up to address the students before any protests
could be made. They looked at each other in bewilderment. I cannot believe this, she thought indignantly. Her head suddenly
started to throb unpleasantly. This is not a good sign, she thought miserably.
