Eternity is the only way to describe it. We broke apart when the next song started, but only because we needed air. If it was up to me, air wouldn't be necessary and we could have just kept kissing until the world ended.
I opened my eyes and realized Harry was still dangerously close to me. I looked up at him, a part of me hoping he realized who I was. Being this close, kissing him, it brought back all the memories of the multiple, obsessive crushes, unanswered prayers that he'd come to his senses and realize we were perfect for each other, the shrine I'd erected in my room when I was four… Did I mention the obsessive crushes?
Of course I didn't find any of that.
"I have to go," I whispered, horrified that I'd let myself do this. "I'll call you."
I spun around and ran through the crowd, trying to find Bree and Val before he realized he'd never given me his number. I found Val in the corner all over a bleach blonde who was so drunk he couldn't remember his own name and Bree was chatting up a gorgeous brunette on the opposite side of the room. Harry followed me everywhere I went, but with the club as crowded as it was, I easily avoided him.
After yanking Bree off the drunk blonde and tearing Val away from her brunette, I forced them to walk behind me so Harry couldn't watch as I slunk out of the club.
"What the hell do you think you're doing?" Val shouted when we got outside. She was obviously as drunk as the guy she was all over. "I was having fun!" She hiccupped and giggled, hanging onto Bree and me. "He was amazing in bed!"
"You didn't sleep with him," Bree told her gently, as if she was trying to talk to a child. I laughed.
"He undressed me with his eyes," Val said loudly, causing several pedestrians outside to stare at her. "I just knew he was amazing!" She slurred her last words as Bree and I helped her into the car. "Ah-mazing I tell you!" She punched her fist in the air and giggled drunkenly.
Bree started the car, but before I could get in I felt someone grab my arm. Thinking back to when I was thirteen, the year Fred and George gave me self-defense lessons, I whirled around and kicked whoever it was in the crotch. He went down with a thump, swearing all the way.
When I looked down and realized who it was, I almost died.
"Bloody hell! I'm so sorry!"
I helped Harry to his feet, and watched as he winced. "Merlin," he whispered, opening his eyes a bit. "Nice to see you too."
"Look, I really have to--"
"Who's Ginny's hottie?" Val whispered loudly, almost shouting. "He's so hot, it's a shame she's-" hiccup "-already got him. Ginny!" She threw her arms up and waved at me, like I couldn't see her or something. "Psst, Ginny! Who is he?"
I groaned inwardly.
Then behind him I see none other than Cho. Cho who was looking like a whore but nonetheless it was still Cho bloody Chang. Cho bloody Chang that recognized me.
"Harry what are you do-" Cho started before she saw me. "Ginny."
"Cho" I replied tersely.
"Yes" I said. "And now that we're all clear who everyone is-"
"Ginny?" Harry started paling, "Oh my god. Bloody hell."
My eyes narrowed.
"What?" I asked.
"You're Ginny! I can't kiss you! Why'd you kiss me?"
I rolled my eyes.
"You're RON'S SISTER!"
"Thanks for noticing."
"I've got to go."
And before I could say anything…he ran and Cho followed him.
"So hew uz at 'ottie?" Bree slurred sounding even drunker that before. I ignored her and got in the drivers seat since I was the only one not drunk. They both passed out on the way home. Finally I got back to my apartment. I opened the door dropped my bag and crawled into my bed. Then I just cried.
"Ginny Weasley you're getting out of that bed right now." Val said jerking open the curtains.
"Yeah Gin no arguments." Bree said sitting down on my bed.
"What's the big deal? He was only a bloke?" Val asked sitting down.
I hid my head in my hands. I still hadn't told them who it was.
I looked up and mumbled. "'Arry Potter"
"What?" Val asked.
"I said Harry Potter."
"Harry Potter?" Bree questioned looking puzzled.
"It was Harry Potter. That's who the bloke at the club was."
"Oh my GOD!" Val shouted.
"I know!" I said laying back down.
"No you can't lie down! Up! UP! You have to work today." Bree said dragging me out of bed as Val laid an outfit on the bed. I changed and finally left the apartment. I apperated to the ministry and made my way to my boring desk job. I really hate my job. It's basically a paper-pusher. I'm in charge of ministry publicity. It's not as exciting as it sounds. It's my job to make sure all the ministry balls are tastefully advertised and such. I was working on the ball for the new minister when I heard someone outside my office. I went to the door and opened it to find none other than Harry standing outside the door looking very torn. He had dark circles under his eyes and he was pale. He looked like shit.
"May I come in? I understand if you don't-" I motioned for him to come in.
"What do you need Harry?" I asked cautiously.
"I need to talk to you. I can't get that kiss out of my mind."
"Just go snog Cho and it'll be gone in no time."
"I'm not dating Cho."
"What?" I asked loosing my footing.
"I'm not dating her. She's dating Dean and we went out for drinks. Sort of an engagement party. They're getting married."
"I just came because I know there's no chance of you really caring, but that kiss was amazing. I can't stop thinking about it. I think about it when I'm awake, when I'm asleep I dream about it. I feel that I owe you a thousand apologies that you'll never take. I could only hope a woman as wonderful as you would like me. Forgetting about family. I really like you. Maybe even love."
I just stared at him. I bloody stared at him. Damn.
"I'll just go then." He said getting up. Then he left.
I stood there before realizing that there was someone else in the room. I turned toward the door and found Bree watching me.
"Are you going after him or not!"
Then I came to me senses and took off. I apperated right outside the ministry, hoping to catch Harry. I saw him. He was walking down the street. I ran to catch up to him.
"Harry!" I called frantically.
He stopped and turned to me.
I ran to him. He caught me and I kissed him.
I pulled away after what seemed like forever.
Then I asked, "Harry, do you fancy some coffee?"
