Disclaimer: Harry Potter belongs to J.K.Rowling. Me, I don't own anything other than a front row ticket to the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie and a preordered copy of Year Seven. Yes, I'm exaggerating.

Author Notes: Got Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince today, read it though once, and felt the need to write this. I appologize ahead of time if it seems a little disjointed and short. It's just my take on how she feels.

Ginny watched as the one who had stolen her heart stood and walked away. She smiled sadly.

So close, they had been during the time since the Cup celebration. It had been magic for her when he had kissed her.

And now...

She had somehow known that Harry would say this. Come to think of it, she had known since Harry had confirmed that Dumbledore was dead.

That damn prophecy...

But this caused her to have a second thought. Harry had always been there, ready (while not willing) to face Voldemort in all his evil power. The prophecy had merely been more of a persisting pest than anything.

All because of a stupid prophecy that Snape that partially heard and then told to his master of...

All becuase of a paranoid Dark Wizard who figured that he could kill the person who would be most likely to kill him...

Irony of ironies when Fate had handed Harry his weapons.

Oh, she didn't know everything that had been said about the prophecy- that was Ron and Hermione's area of expertise. But she was no stupid witch, not by any far stretch of the imagination.

She knew...

She knew that Harry would be there for her no matter what. She knew that Hermione had been wrong this time. She knew that as soon as this was all over...as soon as Harry had defeated Voldemort...

She smiled to herself as she watched Ron and Hermione confront Harry. She saw the look of surprise on his face followed by a look of happiness overshadowed by the grim reality.

Harry James Potter was going to do something this summer and knowing those two, they'd be in on it also.

Well, she loved him more than anything and knew that he loved her too. Loved her enough to tell her that they wouldn't be together any more because Voldemort would try to attack him through her more than likely.

'Well, Harry Potter,' she thought to herself with a smirk on her face, 'Whatever you and they do, you'll have to take me along.'

The knowledge that no matter what the Boy-Who- no... the Chosen O- no...

The knowledge that no matter what Harry Potter, the one who she loved, did, that she would be there for him always, warmed her and gave her comfort even during the day of mourning.

This is what Dumbledore would have wished...

This is how Dumbledore would have wanted us to continue...

All things considered, Ginny realized, this next year was going to be something interesting, no matter which way it went.
