So after a long time, I've finally managed to find time to continue this story. Apologies for the delay but studying for very important exams took up most of my time

Harry sat wordlessly in Hogwarts Grounds when the front door opened and Ginny appeared. He smiled slightly and they walked through the grounds with an awkward silence hanging in the air.

"You didn't come to me at all yesterday," remarked Ginny to him.

Harry frowned. "Er...yeah...I was kind of tired. First day of school and everything."

Ginny nodded. "Oh, I saw Virginia around. She didn't look too happy about things. Apparently she and Tommy have split. You know why?"

Harry blushed. "I suspect it's for a silly reason that's all."

Ginny looked at him sceptically. "She's very pretty. Do you think she's pretty, Harry?"

Harry sighed. "Why all the questions, Ginny? Is there something you aren't telling me?"

Ginny shook her head. "I don't know. I was going to ask you that, Harry. Is there something you haven't told me?"

Harry muttered. "Of course not! I'm your boyfriend. You're supposed to trust me!"

Ginny laughed. "It's hard to trust you when that little slut is hanging around all the time. Looking at you. Wanting you! I'M NOT STUPID!"

"No, you're not!" cried Harry. "You're paranoid, Ginny! That's what you are!"

He pushed her arm away and ran back inside to the Common Room. Virginia was leaning against the door smiling.

"Did you have a fight?"

Harry nodded. "Yeah, she suspects there's something going on between us."

Virginia laughed. Her dark eyes were strangely bright. "And what you tell her?"

"I lied of course," he said as he took Virginia in his arms and kissed her. "I told her she was paranoid."

Virginia laughed and kissed his forehead passionately. "And she believed you?"

Harry shrugged. "I doubt it!" He wrapped his arms around her waist and sighed contently. "Not that it matters! I think she knows why I didn't meet her last night!"

Virginia smiled. "Let her worry, Harry. Let her drown her sorrows until she really does go mad! Then you can finally be rid of her and we can be together for real!"

Harry smiled. "Yeah, come on," he murmured. "There's no-one in the dormitory."

"AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Harry woke up screaming. Ron rushed over and grabbed him by the shoulders.


"NO!" cried Harry. "RON, GET OF ME! NO, IT WASN'T HIM!"

"Then who?" cried Ron.

Harry shrugged. "I dont know," he lied. "I couldn't't see their face."

Harry turned his head and lay back down on his pillow. In his mind he could see a pale face with beautiful red hair smiling at him. He loved her. The problem was he could also see another face with silky long dark hair and he was beginning to think he loved her too.

Virginia woke up sweating. No Harry Potter was just a friend. Just a friend. The past is the past. Just because she may have once thought about him, doesn't mean anything now! And yet seeing them together. Ginny holding onto him. Her heart seemed to waver. She lay back down on her pillow and closed her eyes with Tommy on one side of her mind and Harry on the other.
