Chapter 1

Waking up

Opening his eyes, everything was blurry to Harry. He couldn't find his glasses when he tried to feel for them. Suddenly, he saw long mane of red come to him that put his glasses on. He closed his eyes a little when they were put on, and when he opened them, he saw a beautiful witch that was his. Ginny, his girlfriend was sitting right next to him, rubbing his arm.

"Hey there, love. How are you feeling?" she asked.

"Much better now that I know you're here." he replied. Ginny blushed a little and pecked a little kiss on his cheek. Harry though, sat up, with some difficulty, and decided that he wanted a better kiss then that. Ginny rolled her eyes smiling, and they connected, not giving a care until the world, until...

"Hey, can't we have some time with him too, sis?" Ron said teasingly, with Hermione standing by his side, holding hands. Those two actually got together during the quest of when they and Harry went to destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes, so Harry could take down Voldemort. Ginny joined them sometime later after deciding that she would rather be with Harry helping him take Voldemort down, then stay at home worrying if she would ever see him again. She was a big help destroying the last Horcrux. And she, along with Ron and Hermione, reminded Harry to focus on the love from his friends and family. And that it what took for Harry to cast a simple Disarming Spell at Voldemort, blasting him in the air, with his head making contact, cracking the skull and killing him. After that, Harry went unconscious, but not before telling Ginny that he loved her.

"Not to break you up for a little bit guys, but we really want some time with you guys too," Hermione said.

"Well, what are you waiting for," laughed Ginny. Harry always liked it when she laughed. It made him feel warm inside.

Ron and Hermione sat down in the chairs on the opposite of where Ginny was beside Harry's bed, with Ron putting his arm around Hermione. " How are you feeling mate?" he asked.

"Besides the pain, I feel good now. I just feel a little weird right now."

"Well, considering you just killed Voldemort, I wouldn't be surprised." Ginny commented. "I mean, that got to hurt you a little emotionally, taking out someone like that."

"Ginny's right, Harry." said Hermione. "You've got to heal, both physically and emotionally. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to move on." she said with a look toward Ginny, smiling at her.

" I know. I'm just wondering what has happened while I was out." Harry said, wondering if all the Death Eaters have been caught. He knew Malfoy, his archenemy since the beginning of Hogwarts, and Snape, Dumbledore's murderer, were caught and were sent straight to Azkaban. The other three started to explain to him about how most of the other Death Eaters were caught, some of them trying to wiggle out of out charges claiming to have been under the Imperius curse. Of course, the Aurors captured them and checked them, except for the known ones that were with him during the first war, Unfortunately for them, as the other three told Harry, only one of them was under it. The rest got chucked into Azkaban,

"Wow." said Harry. "But who actually gave that order?

"That will be me," someone said from behind the door. "The new Minister of Magic."

Harry's jaw dropped when he saw whom the Minister was. It was Mr. Weasley. Ron and Ginny definitely smiled and went up to hug their dad. Mrs. Weasley was right behind him.

"How are you doing son?" He asked Harry. Ginny gave up her chair and sat on the bed with Harry.

" Right now, just exhausted." said Harry. "Thanks for asking though, Minister Weasley." Everyone chuckled except for Hermione and Mrs. Weasley, though they did have a little laughter in their mouths.

"Are the rest of you okay?" asked Mrs. Weasley.

" Don't worry, mum." Ron assured his mother. "The Healers checked us three out and we're okay. Hermione actually did most of the healing before help arrived," he said giving Hermione a little nudge, which made her blush.

"Yeah, but I couldn't heal your injuries that were major, Harry." she said rather sadly.

"Hey at least you helped saved me, along with Ron and Ginny." Harry said, keeping an eye on Ginny for the longest time.

"And speaking of you, young lady," Mrs. Weasley said with a serious tone. Ginny looked at her and then shrunk down. She was prepared to hear what her mum had to say.

"I'm definitely proud of you."

She looked up. Of all the things Ginny was sure her mother was going to say to her, that was not one of them. "Mom?"

"I've been trying to shield you kids from this war. I know that Harry and the others were adults when Harry turned seventeen, so I tried to protect you from it. I was wrong. You actually used your brave heart and decided what you wanted. You helped Harry."

Ginny teared up and gave her mother a hug.

"Thanks, Mum," Ginny said sadly. Mrs. Weasley smiled.

"GINNY! RON!" a voice shouted from the door it was...

A/N Sorry guys, but I decided to do a little cliffhanger here. So what do you guys think? Let me know if there is anything I can do anything to improve it.
